  1. Further information: Bought this amp earlier this year from a fellow member and it hasn't missed a beat. Plenty of power at 150wpc. I was told that the power caps have been upgraded to Elna audio grade ones by the previous owner. It comes with original remote, power lead and jumper cable. Pickup is preferred as its heavy about 15kg. I do have the box and can ship at buyer's risk and expense.

  2. Hi This is actually a reply to another SN member's review of his Luxman 509X Int Amp. After replying, I thought it would be nice to share it with other SN members. Just my thoughts on the three Luxman amps I have owned over the last few years. I have been lucky enough in the last few years to have own the 550AX Class A as my first Luxman Int Amp, then due to a house move, needed more power, I got the 590AXII Class A, now living most of my time in Thailand, I am enjoying the 509X Class AB. I have also listened to the 507uX Class AB extensively. My gear from the 550AX to 590AXII and 509X haven't changed - Macbook > JRiver or Roon App > Chord Hugo TT DAC (Cable = Audioquest Diamond USB from Mac to Hugo TT) > every Luxman Amp (Cables = MIT SL8 RCA interconnects) > Spendor D7 SPEAKERS (Cables MIT SL 9). Quick rating of each amp: 1. 550AX Class A 20 watts pc. (Build - 8) - (Look - 10 - if you like the Retro style) - (Power/Drive - 8 - ONLY if you have a small room, efficient speakers & don't listen loud) - (Clarity/Details - 7) - (Quietness - 7) - (Soul/Emotion - 8) 2. 590AXII Class A 30 watts pc. (Build - 9) - (Look - 10 - if you like the Retro style) - (Power/Drive - 8 - ONLY if you have a small/medium room & efficient speakers) - (Clarity/Details - 8) - (Quietness - 8) - (Soul/Emotion - 9) 3. 509X Class AB 120 watts pc. (Build - 9.5) - (Look - 10 - if you like the Retro style) - (Power/Drive - 9.5 - Most room sizes and most speakers) - (Clarity/Details - 9.5) - (Quietness - 9.5) - (Soul/Emotion - 8) Quick summary of each amp: 1. 550AX Class A 20 watts pc. Fantastic Class A Int Amp. Low power, which leads to other limitations. Only buy if you don't have enough money to buy the 590AXII for more Power and Soul/Emotion. 2. 590AXII Class A 30 watts pc. Great Class A Int Amp. Still low power for larger rooms. BUT simply amazing tones that ooze Soul and Emotion especially in vocals and acoustic music. Luxman Class A Masterpiece. 3. 509X Class AB 120 watts pc. Stunning Class AB Int Amp. Tons of power and punch. So quiet, so much details, so clean, etc. Only negative against the 590AXII - doesn't have that Luxman Class A Soul and Emotion. Against Class AB Amp in this price range, the 509X has very few to no rivals. My "Ultimate" Amp: *A Luxman because of the build quality, features and acceptable price. Compared to nearest & equal rival, Accuphase, Luxmans are a bargain. *A Luxman Class A Int Amp for the tone, soul and emotions that they produce. *A Luxman Class A 60 watts pc Int Amp!! - maybe impossible and imagine the heat! Play more music! To the 2 SN members who bought my 550AX and 590AXII, hope you are enjoying them. Photos of 550AX, 590AXII and 509X
  3. Exposure 2010S2D. After hearing the 3010S2D, and having owned a 2010S and a 1010 I have maintained a passing interest in the Exposure line up of integrated amps. I have very fond memories of the 2010S, but those are fairly old memories now, and of an amp used in a different room with different speakers. So I don’t know for sure how well those memories will hold up. As with the 3010S2D this unit was supplied by Andrew from Audiofix. My memories of the 2010S are more about an amp with character than they are about technical capabilities or performance. The 2010, being a power amp with a passive volume control, comes across as a laid back, calm and comfortable piece of gear. The music has no sharp edges, no hardness or harshness, in fact if you were to describe it as “a bit soft sounding” they you would be pretty close. It isn’t an amp that excels at fast drum solos (although it isn’t half bad at those), it really specializes in slower passages. It is fairly phlegmatic in its approach to musical reproduction, and that is just fine by me. This review started out with me being fairly sure I knew what to expect, I’ve heard this amp before and while I hadn’t heard it in my current room or on my current system I have heard several other amps on both old and new systems and I knew where the 2010 lay within those other amps presentations. Lucky for me I was correct and the 2010 does sound very much as I expected it would, but as with any audio story there is so much more to it than that. In the beginning I was listening to the 2010S2D using my traditional set up. YBA Heritage cd100 as source, Aurealis Dragon interconnects, generic old 10AWG speaker wire and Lenehan S2R speakers. And it was sounding pretty good. A bit soft in the top end (which I expected, and will explain shortly) but the mid range was very nice with possibly a little more resolution and detail on display than I recalled. Bass was nice and deep but for the most part it was kept on a short leash, very deep but very broad. Bass is used to set the mood and to back up the mid range, it isn’t the main feature so not punchy, and more polite than tight. Then I tried the little Exposure out with my newly modded Sansui SP-300S stand mounts (with new crossovers) and found that they combined so much better with the amp than my Lenehans did. The Sansuis have a hard tweeter that gives more energy to the top end and that works in this case to counter the relaxed top end of the Exposure where as when the relaxed top end of the Exposure combined with the slightly softer top end of the Lenehans some of the top end details only came through when the volume was turned up higher than usual. So the Sansuis worked far better at low listening levels, better at normal listening levels and only just better at high listening levels. However, in the past I’ve always used the Lenehans for my reviewing. Consistency is key in this game after all, so even though I was really enjoying the Sansuis I took them out of the system and put the Lenehans back in. Things went back to the way they were and I had an additional piece of info to offer up when it came time to write my review. All good there. Then Terry stuck his nose into the review (to be fair to Terry, he didn’t do so deliberately, but he did ask me to do him a favour and that had a pretty serious impact on the review) and complicated matters further. Terry had just bought a cd player from Dan, Dan and I know each other and both live out in the Kingaroy-ish area. Since I’m meant to be heading down to Terry’s place in a week or two I’ve been asked to take the cd player along for the ride and deliver it. All well and good, no problems there. But! Then Terry asks me for my opinion on the cd player (again to be fair to Terry, I don’t think he knew I was trying my damndest to get this 2010S2D review started this weekend) and I agreed because playing with new toys is what this hobby is all about. And because I’ve always wanted to hear this Consonance Droplet that people are talking about. So earlier this morning I pull the Droplet out of its box and set it up on my vibration platform. Within 20 seconds I’m hearing that this puppy is clearly superior to my YBA and not just in a small way. It completely transformed the performance of the system and it really raised the performance of the Exposure as well. Instruments and vocals were clearer and the bass tightened up and deepened just a little further. I believe a big part of this improvement comes from the Droplet having a very low output impedance. Remember my mention of that passive pre/volume control above? Well it shares that particular design with the ME240 and I’ve already found that the ME240 behaves far better when paired with a low output source (or when used with an impedance buffer in between it and the source). I believe that the YBA has a fairly high output impedance (read weak signal if you aren’t up to date on the whole impedance matching game) and the Droplet has a much lower one (read strong signal, so it can push through the passive volume pot without losing any strength or detail). So, give the 2010 a stronger signal and it sounds like it has more resolution and detail. No real surprise there I guess but it is nice to know from experience rather than deduction. The problem now is going to be going back to my YBA for all the nitty-gritty evaluating and awarding numbers to each category. That will not be an easy thing. This promises to be a bit of a long and rambling review ladies and gents. Best settle in for a multiple post review put up over several weeks. I will do my best to make it thorough but it could turn out a bit on the long winded side. Just letting everyone know ahead of time.

  6. I wasn't too sure I'd ever get around to doing this, putting up a few pics of my current listening room slash ex-home theatre, but now that I have some time on my hands I took a few pics that appear to be less blurry than usual so I figure I might as well put them up on show. It is not so much pictures of a system, more pictures of all sorts of gear in the same room that I watch TV and listen to music in. This is the inside of my cold room of audio, as seen from my listening position. The Halcro takes pride of place but it isn't in use ATM. The Exposure 2010S is sitting on top of a Krell KAV300i, next to those are a Burson PRE-160, a Consonance cd120 on top of it and a NuForce DDA-100 on top of it. Next to those sits my cd filing system (otherwise known as the floor), where I keep my favourites for handy access. The Osborn Eclipses with little JMax bookshelfs on top (I use the JMaxs to run in my integrated amps on), one LG 56 inch DLP rear projection TV (yes these things do still exist) minus my listening doona and a few Halcro components underneath (an EC800 disc player and a Halcro SSP100 for those who may wish to know) and consonance power boards. Behind the DM38 there sits my blue ray player, 2 integrated amps (it was a spare shelf and they had to go somewhere) and my 3 channel power amp for the centre and rears. The accoustic foam is stuck to the wall with magnetic strips so it is all adjustable and there are a few old posters on display. One of the reasons I've taken a long while to do this is that the HT room is where I keep my inner 17 year old, I found all my old posters a few years ago and decided to use them instead of chucking them out. You can also see the cold room fans, they probably do still work but it has been so long since they have been used I think even the on/off switch would need to be oiled prior to use. My interconnect storage zone. And moving further back The Stig and two healthy young lasses watch over my spare speaker wire and digital interconnect storage zone while Bridgette keeps an eye on the power and video cable hanging area. Also my off duty listening doona. This one did not turn out too well. My spare gear piles. From top to bottom on the left, bag of cables, wrapped up NAD 3120, Exposure 1010, Myryad MXI 2080, Dussun V6i and two little Perreaux SM60 monoblocks. On the right we have the Sonneteer Campion, burson PI-160 and a Halcro DM8. You can just make out a few items on the 'spare' shelves to the right as well. And to the left of the listening position Jessica takes care of all of my power requirements and air conditioning needs. And there is the listening position and surrounds. It is a bit strange to see the chair empty, it usually contains myself or one of two cats (who rather generously sacrifice a great deal of their free time to keep the place rodent and lizard free). You can see the insides of the shed through the door there. And that is the room that the members of my family refer to as "The Den". The coldroom construction has a few things going for it, one it is cool in summer and warm in winter but it reacts quickly to any changes from within (being an insulator room it contains heat rather well, hence the absolute NEED for air con). It does cut out alot of noise from outside but nowhere near as much as most people seem to think, it does sit at an ambient sound level below the reading on my cheapo SPL meter though, provided the air con is off. Also, since all of my gear is surrounded by a double layered faraday cage I just don't seem to get any background noise of note, mind you, I almost always hear a pop through the amp when turning the flouro light on and off. If anyone else out there is considering converting a cold room into a HT room I can recommend it, it works really well. Cheers!!
  7. Further information: This is classic, quality Japanese integrated amplifier, the AX1070 from Yamaha. Not what I'd call "vintage" but it is 25 years old.

  9. Further information: For sale here is the Kinki Studio EX-M1 Dual Mono Integrated Amplifier. If you have not heard of this amplifier before it has been compared with some very top end Swiss gear in terms of performance. I bought it from dacman (who is the local agent for Kinki Studio in Australia) in April this year. My gear already consists of Octave tube monoblocks amp and pre as well as high end Aqua digital equipment, and since April I have been switching between this integrated and the tube monoblocks (I wanted the best of both setups). It never ceases to amaze me how close this integrated is to the sound of the Octave amplification gear (worth more than 30K!) at one tenth of the price. It also does a couple of things really well that the Octave gear lags behind: transient speed and extremely black background. It hangs proudly with my 36K worth of digital equipment (Aqua Formula xHD DAC, Aqua LinQ network bridge, Antipodes music server), driving my Focal Sopra 2's with effortless ease. If you have been mulling over getting separates because you want great soundstaging, layering, transparency and dynamics, you should seriously consider the EX-M1. It will put quite a few separates to shame. After a while it has become tiring switching between the two setups and I have decided not to be greedy and just run with my Octave amplification gear going forward. So here is an opportunity for someone to get this close to new condition unit at a lower price. Price is firm as I've only had it for a few months so lowball offers will not be entertained. Comes with high quality remote and original box and can ship at buyers cost. Here are some interesting reviews by some credible reviewers: https://6moons.com/audioreviews2/kinki/1.html http://hifiknights.com/reviews/amplifiers/kinki-studio-ex-m1/#:~:text=Not even one.,be now familiar with it. http://v2.stereotimes.com/post/kinki-studio-exm1-integrated-amplifier-by-michael-wright/ Photos: PLEASE READ If you are advertising multiple items, you must post one bulk price only, or post seperate ads for each item If you include any reference to pricing whatsoever in this section (excluding RRP), your ad will not be approved If you don't include photographs of the actual item being sold, your ad will not be approved

  11. A question for all you Sansui-philes out there. If I was to chase a Sansui integrated amp to add to my demo list which amps should I look out for? There is an AU-555A on ebay at the moment, is that a good example of the brand or a bad one?
  12. Further information: I am selling this amp for my brother - it is in excellent condition with very little use. Postage is available as my brother has the original boxes but local pick up is preferred. See 3rd picture for little mark which is hardly visible. Review from TNT There has always been an inherent rightness about the idea of an integrated amplifier. The efficiencies are impressive, the compromises mostly imagined. With the modern additions of display and a properly implemented remote control the integrated becomes all the more appealing. Now there are integrated and then there are integrateds: The sometimes classic (Naim) and sometimes overrated (fill in the blank) British offerings are not what I have in mind. For some reason, the Brits just don't seem to get the fact that an integrated needs real world power to be of real world use. Rotel is a company that knows how build high powered amplifiers, so when I found out that their flagship RA-1070 was said to be happy driving a tough 4 ohm load, I was quick to request a sample. The RA-1070 is the latest in a spate of offerings wherein the product's look and performance really threaten a redefining of the high end. There was a time when such a product would have cost well over $2000. While the old guard high end companies have product lines that continually reach higher and higher, the larger mid-level companies seem willing and able to supply more music for the dollar. It may be time to ask why... This is a very attractive piece of gear. My review sample is silver and black, but the 1070 can also be had in the more traditional all black. The faceplate of the unit is cleverly designed to suggest a more hefty look through the use of substantial black aluminum handles. In fact, the silver center section of the face is quite thin (as is the top cover) yet the unit looks and feels quite solid. A large motor-driven volume pot dominates the face. When operational, there's an illuminated section that indicates its relative rotational position. In an interesting nod to the days of tone & loudness controls, there's a four position contour control which allows for accentuation and attenuation of bass and treble. I left that control in the off position for all of the evaluation period. The rear panel is well laid out with proper 5-way binding posts situated near the center of the panel making it easy to connect even the most unwieldy cables. The usual IEC 320 connector is used, but in an odd twist, this Rotel floats the ground: This is very likely of no concern in typical use, but could be an issue in systems requiring a specific grounding scheme or extensive use of truly balanced devices. The RA-1070 uses a relay as a turn-on/off stabilization device and also as a protection device in case of overheating or shorted cables. The relay can be clearly heard when powering the unit up and down. With the exception of the speaker and contour control switches, all of the RA-1070's functions can be controlled by the superb remote. This is truly a wonderful remote...it can readily learn the remote codes for all of your other gear and allows you to use the Rotel remote to control an entire system. It is also possible to customize the unit's display to indicate associated equipment by specific name rather than type. The only negative that I should mention is that while it is possible to turn the somewhat bright display off, the unit isn't designed to remember that setting. So, the very next time the Rotel is turned on the display again needs to be turned off. This is a real shame as the display off setting is very well implemented. With the display in the off position, the display momentarily illuminates whenever a control is changed. Once the change is complete the display goes out. On a teeny-tiny but slightly tacky note: The motorized volume pot indicates that the RA-1070 is in mute by flashing its position indicator. While effective, I find this solution better suited to products of a lesser pedigree than Rotel. Sound The Rotel RA-1070 is a very suave sounding piece of gear. Right out of box it has a sound that is relaxed and assured. There are absolutely no hi-fi dramatics to this amp just a competent and musical presentation. The unit looks like it sounds like it functions...sensibly, controlled and without fanfare. The essential test of tone and timber that I like to use first is the Byron Janis. The piano is clear and open with a slightly soft presentation. It is less than muted but less authoritative than it should be. Overall tonality is quite good bordering on excellent. At well over 100 watts into 8 and 4 ohm loads, it sounds even more powerful in use than the ratings would indicate. Iris DeMent's voice is possessed of its usual plaintive clarity if again just slightly softened. There was no aspect of the voice's fundamental or attack that was lacking but rather a subtle sense of shading toward the warm and dark. Now, on the period strings of the Corelli, the sound was quite open and pure with an excellent sense of space and air. The guitars of Krushevo were also recreated with an appropriate portrayal of acoustic speed and timbre. It is sometimes possible to go too far in one direction and I felt that the Rotel RA-1070 was less prone to this softening when used with my usual digital reference rather than the also excellent RCD1070. It may be that my system's overall resolution requires just a bit more raw musical information that the Rotel combination can create. More than anything, this is likely to be a matter of personal preference and perhaps most importantly the room/system interface. In any event, I appreciate the RA-1070 more when using my reference digital rig and analog. Ah, analog I will rue the day that there are no more phono stages. One of the most appealing qualities of the Rotel RA-1070 is its lovely phono stage. It is really quite excellent. The Sonny Landreth pressing quickly reveals the essence of a phono stage. First of all, it is dead silent. A noisy phono stage will overlay a hum over the blackness of the virgin vinyl. The phono stage of the 1070 is fully capable of differentiating a good pressing from one made from old combs. The Landreth LP has some wild dynamic swings from cut to cut. The Rotel really handles the range with aplomb. In contrast to the linestage's less assertive style, the phono stage of the 1070 is incisive and full of verve. As I got the Rotel RA-1070 ready for the return trip to Rotel, I had to make my system ready for some fairly large, typically high end separates. I was miserable. Not only was I going to miss the functional simplicity of the Rotel and its remote I was already missing the elegance of having all of the voltage gain and current swing in one box. Here I was on my hands and knees looking for interconnects and power cords while trying to fit the new separates into the swollen component rack. There, on the floor, the Rotel RA-1070 was staring at me as if to say, there is an easier way! There's just no arguing the fact that using an integrated amplifier makes for a more simple system. What the Rotel RA-1070 proves is that such convenience does not have to come with an unbearable loss of musicality. The 1070 is comfortable with tough loads and very easy to listen to and there is just no way to complain about its design and functionality. Maybe someday I will retire from reviewing. When I do, it will hopefully be an easier and simpler time...a time, I hope, of music. When that day comes it would be a pleasure to spend my time listening to the Rotel RA-1070, the bother and hassle of separate components just a distant memory. Until then, I trust that you'll get out and try to hear the 1070. You may find that the simple life of the Rotel RA-1070 is for you. Highly recommended. © Copyright 2003 M. L.

  14. Plessis Audio S1 integrated amp in excellent condition. Bought new from Len Wallis Audio in 2017. The S1 came about as a joint effort between Charl Du Plessis and his manufacturing partner in China. The design brief was to come up with an amplifier that delivered great sound quality at a really good price. I recommend this amp as an introduction to audiophile grade hi-fi and in my own blind listening tests with various speakers in a listening room easily goes toe to toe with amps well over twice its RRP. Paired with a streaming solution like Yamaha's MusicCast boxes, it will do everything you need. Weighing in at 10kg, the result is a fantastic sounding minimalist amp that delivers 80 watts RMS into 8 ohms and 130 watts into a 4 ohm load. The only controls are a wonderfully smooth motorised volume control, input selection (from front panel only), mute. A baby remote and bonus headphone out. Lovely sounding and was enjoyed in my system. Has a slightly warm tone, excellent drive, and presents a nice amount of detail. Physically, there's a few light scratches and a slight bit of discolouration on the top of the case where the significant other placed something that stuck to the case, and she used some solvent to remove the residue.

  15. Further information: Selling my MA252 which has only been used for a few months, and then, maybe only half a dozen short times. It's as new, with all packaging and accessories. Although highly regarded, it just doesn't match up with the JBL L100 in my 2nd system. So I'm going try a few other amps to see what gels. Current RRP is $7,995. I can ship this via Couriers Please at buyers cost. Photos:
  16. Further information: This is an award winning integrated amplifier from Denon with Australian power specifications. It is made in Japan. You can read the summary review: https://www.hifichoice.com/content/awards-2010-amplifiers-£1000 The Denon catalogue also featured it as an award winning amp from EISA 2010-2011. It works beautifully and even has MM/MC phone stage. It can drive my Audio Technica MC flagship OC model AT-OC9XSL cartridge (0.4mV) and sounds great via my Paradigm Studio 20 speakers. It can be used as integrated amp, power amp and pre-amp. See photos for various setup in the manual. Specifications of the amp: Refer to photo. I bought in early 2011 (RRP - Around $1700) and used it for a year and then upgraded to Luxman amp. It has been sitting in the Hi fi room all this time. There are two very minor hairline scratches on the front. They are not noticeable unless you examine in close scrutiny. Please see photos. This amplifier is rather heavy -15.5kg so I prefer local pickup. It comes with the original manual, power cable, unused remote and original box. Will include the Denon catalogue featuring this amp. I can ship interstate if buyer is keen and there will be additional shipping costs. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  17. Problem ----------- I used to be a very happy owner of a Prima Luna Prologue II amp for which I managed to find the best damn tube combination (after months of rolling & rolling) which made the amp just sing every time I turned it on. However, despite its musicality and all the goodness it offered, I had one gripe with this amp. The lack of a remote. (I believe that this is simply human nature where we are never forever happy and at rest with certain things no matter how hard we try) This made me go for a Prima Luna Dialogue Premium Integrated. Now this amp is a beast.. weighing just above 50kg and looking as stunning as a valve amp can be. And guess what, It has a remote. One hell of a remote... I'm sure you can already guess where I'm going with this. Despite all the new features and looks and what not, the Tube arrangement is vastly different with the new amp and even after quite a lot of rolling attempts and various changes, I still have not had a combination of tubes which could even come close to that of my previous amp. Prima Luna Prologue II employs 2 x 12AX7 + 2 x 12AU7 in the pre section and 4 x EL34/KT88/KT120/etc. in the driver section. Prima Luna Dialogue Premium Integrated employs 6 X 12AU7 in the pre section and 4 x EL34/KT88/KT120/etc. in the driver section. I'm at a dilemma whether I should keep the new one and sell the old or keep the old one and sell the new Questions ------------- Can anybody give suggestions to how the Pre section of the Dialogue Premium is arranged ? (i.e. the internal structure of tubes and how they affect the sound of the amp) Has anybody found a good combination of tubes for the Dialogue Premium amplifier which can make it sound as it should ? Can 12AU7 be interchanged with 12AX7 ? And BTW, the winning tube combo in my Prologue II is as below. Those who have this amp, Please give it a try and see what I mean... 2 x 12AX-7 = Telefunken Smooth Plate (Selected Tube) 2 x 12AU-7 = Brimar CV 4034 (Purchased from Tubemonger who has the tooling to create matching bases that would go into the 12AU7 socket) 4 x EL-34 = Svetlana Winged C (NOS). (I tried a quad of Mullard EL-34 XF2 NOS with the above pre tubes but the Svetlanas sound waayyyy better with them) All Opinions are welcome Cheers....
  18. Further information: Price reduced. Great sounding British amp, 60W per channel into 8ohms. This model released in 2010. Recently serviced (this month), all tested OK. I love it, but am getting into separate components, and need to free up funds to upgrade! Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  19. Buyer to pay postage. Further information: I bought this puppy over ebay a while back and have really enjoyed it on my Lenehan S2Rs. It is right up there with the Luxman 507u, the Accuphase E460 and the Sansui 907NRA (though if pushed I would admit to preferring the Sansui, but anyone who knows me would be expecting that). It has a very clear presentation in the top end and the mids and a nice punchy bass presentation. However when we tried it on Terry's Vienna Acoustics speakers it didn't give good bass. I'm working on the theory that it doesn't have the current drive that it needs on speakers that drop down that low in the bass region, so I would recommend this amp for anyone who has speakers that don't drop below maybe 5 Ohms in the bass region. Or for those who use a sub for music. I'm betting on a pair of Osborns it would be awesome (designed for low-ish wattage tube amps so they are both easy to drive and give easy bass). Comes with manual and remote but non-original box. More info and specs here: https://www.leema-acoustics.com/product.html?prid=56 Photos:
  20. Buyer to pay postage. Further information: It looks like I'm having an autumn clean out. I always intended to get serious with the little Heed but I never found the time and I don't think I will so I'm putting it up for sale. A nice sounding amp but I did note that it was a much better match with my ML2s than my S2s so I'm thinking it will probably match better with more revealing speakers. The built in DAC is OK (good but not great) so I think I'd use a separate one if I decided to stick with the Obelisk. I have the original box so postage will not be a problem. Photos:
  21. Further information: It was refurbished. All capacitors were checked. Critical electrolyte capacitances were replaced with WIMA one. The power lamp is replaced with a LED. The BIAS adjustment is done. Speaker terminals are upgraded. https://www.hifiengine.com/manual_library/sansui/au-101.shtml Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  22. Further information: Very good condition. Original box, manuals etc. I bought it from Denis White HIFI and Home Cinema on 14-Feb-2019. I will provide a hard copy of the invoice. Still under warranty - ten (10) years in total, so nine years left, however I called the guys at Denis White HiFi and they said those warranties are not transferable, which is in line with what I know about warranties for audio products in Australia. Note: This unit comes with the MIND 1 module. The current model available from Australian distributors like Addicted to Audio (link below) comes with the new MIND 2 module. https://addictedtoaudio.com.au/products/simaudio-moon-ace-all-in-one-music-player More Information About MIND 2 In addition to all original MiND 1 features, MiND 2 is Roon Ready, offers multi-room synchronized playback, streams MQA* audio files and is compatible with TIDAL Masters (MQA*), Qobuz Sublime+ & Deezer Hi-Fi. Via Ethernet connection, MiND 2 can stream up to 32-bit/384kHz and DSD256. *Requires MQA DAC for full MQA decoding. MIND 1 module can be updated to MIND 2 by an authorised dealer in Australia at some cost. Inputs/Outputs in the rear photo I can ship this across Australia.
