  6. Item: Bryston B135 SST² Integrated Amplifier Location: Melbourne Price: $4,299 Item Condition: Mint Reason for selling: Interested in trying something new Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I'm considering selling this to try something different. Putting feelers out there to gauge interest. The unit is absolutely mint, black finish, and comes with the optional remote control (which lists for $699 alone!). It was purchased new by me in May 2015. The amplifier retails for $7k new so this is a bargain. I still have all the packaging so COULD ship, but would prefer local pickup if possible. I'm be interested in a trade for a NAIM Supernait 2, or one of the NAIM Uniti Novas, but that's about all. Some info Brochure is here: http://www.bryston.com/PDF/brochures/B135_BROCHURE.pdf 135W into 8 Ohms (180W into 4 Ohms) Over 30,000 MFD of filter capacitance per channel Three ultra-low-noise power transformers Separate ground paths for Digital and Analog Gold plated switch, contacts, and connectors Pre-out/main in connectors Computer modelled heat-sink. Convection cooled and housed in a fully aluminium chassis Headphone jack 20 year warranty (16 years to go!) This is an incredible amplifier, with a low noise floor and pitch black background. It excels in bringing out detail in recordings without (somehow!) highighting flaws in production.

  13. Item: Yamaha A-S1000 amplifier Location: Kew, Victoria Price: 950 Item Condition: excellent near mint Reason for selling: changing things up Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: selling my mint Yamaha A-S1000 with remote, no scratches or marks anywhere. Incredible build quality, punchy warm clear sound, buckets of power, stellar MM/MC phono stage, built like a tank at 23kg. This has been used in rotation usually in summer mainly when my tube amp seems like the wrong choice, or when I want a punchier more detailed change over the tube sound. The tone controls are in another league to most implementations I've heard. I never hear any degradation when I do use them. The side wood panels can be purchased in dark brown and black from Yamaha for $100 btw I do have the manuals but no box. Would prefer to have this local collection Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  14. Item: Pass Labs HPA 1 Headphone Amplifier Ex Display Location: Leichhardt Price: $3,500.00 Item Condition: Ex display Reason for selling: Clearance Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Direct deposit, Credit card on pick up, Extra Info: Can freight at extra cost The HPA-1 headphone amplifier was designed ground-up to become what we believe is one of the very best sounding headphone amplifiers available today. With low feedback, wide bandwidth and a direct coupled MOSFET output stage, this musical instrument drives even the most difficult headphone loads with ease, power, and grace. The HPA-1 also functions as a line-level preamplifier that sonically rivals much higher-priced competition. The measured performance is superb and the sound even better. Comes with original box.

  16. Hi all, Just received my NOS Telefunken 12AX7 smooth plate tube to replace the stock Chinese made 12AX7 in the front window. I figured I would take a few shots of the internals while I was at it. This is a pretty impressive looking unit for the asking price, or at least I think so.
  17. Item: One Exposure 2010S2D Integrated Amplifier Location: Sunny Nanango Price: $1450 (plus postage) I'll be using Aust Post. Item Condition: Demo unit, presents as new (Terry and I were very easy on it, it was only fed premium analogue signals and only hooked up to the best speakers in the room) Reason for selling: Bit of a story here. It was meant to go back to Andrew at Audiofix before he fled the country to attend some show or other but it didn't. So either it takes up space at my place until Andrew gets back or it gets sold off beforehand. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Links to the manufacturers website, my SNA review and Terry's and my GTG results below. Comes with the remote control, power cord, original box and packing. Full warranty applies via Audiofix. https://www.exposurehifi.com/products/item/2010s2d-integrated-amplifier.html https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/264806-exposure-2010s2d-review/ https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/263126-terry-o-and-cafads-integrated-amp-challenge/page/5/ Pics:
  18. Item: Musical Fidelity A1 Class A Integrated Amplifier Location: Sydney, prefer local sale but will consider shipping Price: $450 Item Condition: Very good, no marks or scratches Reason for selling: Moving to an apartment, will not have the space for component system Payment Method: Cash-Pick Up or Paypal Extra Info: I am the first and only owner of this iconic unit. It was the very best amplifier I could afford back in the day and has given beautiful and trouble free music since. I have only ever used it with two sets of speakers, the Linn Index stand mounted speakers I bought it with and more recently the very lovely Living Voice Auditorium floor standers. I have had no trouble driving either of these combinations. As you will likely know the top of the amplifier does heat up so I just leave the doors of my cabinet open whilst the unit is on. I have the original Owners Guide however no longer the original packaging. Pictures:

  21. Item: Hypex NC502MP Class D stereo amplifier module Location: New Zealand Price: NZ$675 (firm) + freight. $25 donation to Stereonet on sale. Item Condition: New and unused Reason for selling: Bought for a project that didn't eventuate Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Unused top-of-the line Hypex NC502MP module https://www.hypex.nl/product/nc502mp-oem/77 This is rated at 500 watts into 4 ohms and 350 watts into 8 ohms, so will drive pretty much any pair of speakers on the planet. This module includes a matching integrated Hypex SMPS, so it really is a plug 'n' play option offering superb sound quality. Just BYO case (and a few other bits and pieces such as IEC inlet, input connectors, speaker binding posts etc). I suspect you'd need to spend at least $3k - and probably more - to get anything close to comparable sound quality. From the Hypex website: The NC502MP amplifier module incorporates a low power standby power supply (meets 2013 ERP Lot 6 0.5W requirements), a highly efficient switch mode power supply and a high-performance Class D amplifier in one compact and easily applicable power brick. The amplifier used in the NC502MP is a self-contained high-performance class D amplifier intended for a wide range of audio applications, ranging from public address systems to ultrahigh-fidelity replay systems for studio and home use. Chief distinguishing features are flat frequency response irrespective of load impedance, nearly frequency independent distortion behaviour and very low radiated and conducted EMI. Control is based on a phase shift controlled self-oscillating loop taking feedback only at the speaker output. The main SMPS providing the power for the amplifier is a compact, high power, highly efficient, regulated half bridge converter with synchronous rectification on the main output rails. These properties make this technology ideal for powering Class D audio amplifiers. For applications requiring a standby mode, a low power standby SMPS also has been integrated into this product. To achieve universal mains input compatibility this SMPS features an automatic input voltage doubler.

  22. I thought the Technical Brain TB-Zero/int deserved its own review thread. I’ll put a copy into my “Addicts Guide” thread just for the sake of completeness but the TB has a big enough rep that it deserves a little space to itself. The asking price alone demands it, $26K US is pretty decent ask for a piece of audio gear, so it had better be special, and it is. I’m not sure if there is a fixed RRP for Oz, if you wish to find out Technical Brain are distributed in Oz by Zensati Australia, I’m sure they could supply a price if asked. http://www.zensatiaustralia.com/ First up I was a little apprehensive when I bought the TB Z from Rob, I knew it was a good piece of gear of course but the price and the fact that listening to it gave me a similar feel to when I was trying to work out how to get the best out of the Halcro DM-38 made me wonder if I was doing something that would turn out to be a difficult piece of kit to nut out. As it turns out it was a little difficult but nowhere near as complicated as the Halcro turned out to be. Difficult is not necessarily a bad thing of course, you can learn a lot from a component that sounds a little different to everything else or behaves differently. They make you think and can send you in a different direction to the one you thought you were moving in. I suppose the old saying “necessity is the mother of invention” applies here, if you have something that you know can be special and it isn’t living up to your expectations then there will be a reason why, all you have to do is find it. So far in my TBZ journey I have found that the resolution and detail retrieval of the TBZ seems to have found the capabilities of my usual source and cables wanting. I initially tried the TBZ out with my YBA cd spinner and Aurealis RC1 interconnects with Redgum Audio Pipeline speaker cables feeding into my Lenehan S2R stand mounts. I then moved to Aurealis Dragon interconnects and found a nice improvement. A change from my YBA to a Densen B420 cd player was initially confusing, the Densen was not a good match with the TBZ. (Densen has more a tubey sound while the TBZ is unashamedly solid state, they did not mix well) The second biggest change so far was when I brought in my Sansui cd917XR cd player, that was a much better match. The biggest change was moving from single ended cables to balanced. Yes, I know, many people claim balanced are infinitely superior to RCA but until last week I was among the group who could not find any differences between the two with any gear I tried them both on. I realize they are good for noise rejection but I was of the opinion that my lounge room was not that electrically noisy that they were required just for that reason. I am forced to assume then that balanced cables only make a significant difference when a certain level has been reached, or when a design requires something of the signal input that only balanced can provide. This would be when a true balanced design meets a true balanced design. (again an assumption, but I think it's a pretty safe one) The TBZ only sports balanced inputs (which really should have been a serious hint) but us audio hobbyists can be pretty thick at times so it took me a while to remember that I was working with a component that was way above the level of the gear that I play with most of the time. Anyway, the outcome of that part of the story is the TBZ will wow with true balanced designs but perform only as well as many other amps if you use an RCA/balanced adaptor and sub in an unbalanced source. The Sansui 917 and the TBZ is an excellent match, I was truly taken aback with the level of detail retrieval on display and just as taken aback with the way it was portrayed. (the fact that the cd player is 25 years old and is not any of the usually claimed "audiophile approved DAC designs" is also worthy of note I would think) The top end is so extended you can really hear all those little metallic sounds, things like strings, triangles and even brass ringing out. These sounds that are usually not present, probably because they usually sound hard and bright, but on the TBZ they can be heard easily in all their metallic character without coming across as hard or bright. Or, explained another way, they are still just as hard and bright as they should be but they are somehow just not fatiguing to listen to. Some components have a current connection that can be used instead of the usual voltage connections (Audio GD, Krell, Halcro, etc). I have tried both the Audio GD and the Halcro gear using these current inputs and found that I preferred them to the voltage alternative every time. The difference on the TBZ between true balanced and normal RCA is a bit like that voltage to current difference I heard on the Halcro gear only about 5 times as pronounced. Going back is not an option. (well, OK, maybe for TV, but only until I could get a balanced DAC) So now that I’ve got the front end sorted what about the back? Were the Redgum speaker cables up to the task? I tried out my RG213U cables and found a drop in details but an increase in vocal sweetness, the vocal improvement was nice but once the level of detail has been experienced its loss cannot be suffered so the RG213U was not an option. Next up was a pair of Aurealis UP420s, I’m not quite sure if I prefer these to the Redgums, they do drop the detail level just a touch* (I think, not completely certain on that yet) but they seem to give a lower background noise floor. This works really well with slower paced music but doesn’t work quite as well with fast paced rock and metal. My apologies to those who thought they were going to get a full review right from the word go but this is as far as I've gotten. I plan to get further this weekend and I was going to wait until I was done before posting but I had to do something while my washing machine was running this morning so I thought I'd write up my path so far. Next steps will be to investigate different speaker cables (emails have been sent) and different speakers. I did try the TBZ over at Gremrocks place a while back and I found I really liked it on the ML3s but not so much on the ML2 Ltds. Different source, cables and room of course but that's life. The ML3s are now sold so the only options I have available to me are the ML2 Ltds and the KEF LS-50s. I do like the little KEFs but I think this time they are way out of their league so I'll give the ML2s a run and see what I can hear. *Most people would probably say that the Aurealis cables were a definite step up as they cut down on the brightness and the hardness of the sound. I am not most people and the TBZ is not most amplifiers, I think it may have enough of a hold on the frequencies in the top end that we can afford to let that “nasty” sound through without it getting nasty enough to annoy. So this isn’t your typical audio situation. Notice how the TBZ looks smaller than in many of its brochure pics? I always thought it would be bigger in person. One close up. I'm listening to some Aerosmith to warm things up this morning. cd case included for scale. See, not a particularly big amp. Now, if you'll excuse me, I believe I hear a beeping sound coming from the laundry.

  24. Hello world, First of all....my knowledge of audio equipment is quite limited. I've bought a pair of Mission 753s and would like some advice on a good used amp (or combo) to power them. My budget is ~$1000. Any help would be great!
  25. Just thought I'd put up my amplifier build. This amp was up and running around 6 months ago, but I've just put the final touch in it. Replaced my 1000va Nuvotem transformer to a Torroidy "Supreme audio grade" transformer. I'll post some pics of the process here. I have called this the "Zeus Audio - Simamp". I had some cast silver "Zeus Audio" name plates made for my Tsunami speakers so I thought to carry on the tradition with the other projects I build. Original speaker Logo. 3d printed wax, then cast in silver. Expensive logo. I started by reading the Bob Cordell book "Designing Audio Power Amplifiers". I produced a schematic using the best bits of the book. Decided to use a nice symetrical layout. Not because it sounds better, but because of my psychological tendancies. The amplifier was also tsimulated using the same "Ltspice" program learned by reading the book..and google. Voltage out (green). Power across 8ohm load (blue) simulated power acros 8ohm load Current though 8ohm load at max power before clipping. FFT plot @ max power 1000hz THD @max power 1000hz To be continued Cheers Simon
