  1. Hi, So currently I have nothing setup, but have narrowed down on speakers and am looking for what avr/power amp/dac are required to make work everything I desire. Id like to be able to have a 2ch setup for a main tv/kitchen/living area, with speakers to play: - music currently on a hard drive (internal and external); - tv/movies through streaming apps like Netflix through a Fetch box or a Xbox1 or a Chromecast; - streaming apps/Youtube through casting from an iphone. Sound quality of music is the priority, but I do find it much easier to hear spoken words on tv with separate speakers. I have been looking at Ascension speakers from Adelaide and talked to the guy there last year. The likely model will be around 150 wrms at 8 ohms. I will call him again to discuss, but if I remember correctly from what he recommended last time, an AVR to drive such speakers is expensive relative to the speakers just to offer extra channels that I don't need. Would a suitable alternative be a 2ch power amp plus a second device to hand all the digital inputs? Emotiva BASX A-300 or AMC: 2N100MKII-2 are both 150w 8ohm power amps for about $800, but an AVR that can do 150w at 8 ohms are about $5k - what am I missing here? Ive looked into this several times over the last year and I feel like I am just going round in circles. Any help would be appreciated. Cheers.

  5. Hi There, Does anyone know the timeframe HDMI 2.1 on Marantz AVR ? Thanks.
  6. Hi there, can any one help me to choose between these two amplifiers. 1. Rotel RMB 1585 - 5 channel Class AB 2. Elektra 5 channel amplifier Class AB https://www.melbournehifi.com.au/collections/elektra/products/elektra-theatron-hd-5-channel-power-amplifier http://www.rotel.com/product/rmb-1585
  7. Hi there , in comparison to Parasound a52+ (6000$), how is Rotel RMB 1585 cost $ 3850. Elektra 5 channel cost $2900. Which is value for money in above three amplifiers? Is there other brand with at least 150w/ channel at 8 ohm 5 channels class AB with toroidal transformer spec's priced around $3000mark? Parasound cost to high is that because of high current? Thanks Use: HT 5 channel using SVS Ultra setup Room size: 5m*4m

  9. Item: MASTERSOUND INTEGRATED TUBE AMPLIFIER BOX R Parallel Single Ended in "Class A" Integrated - Made in Italy Power: 2 x 35 Watt Tubes complement: 2 x ECC802 - 6 x EL34 Input: 3 line + Phono MM Output: 1 line Load imped.: 4-8 ohm Bandwidth: 18 hz / 25 khz 0 db Output Transformer: MastersounD Automatic Bias Supplied with remote control - R version Negative feedback: 0 db Dimensions: 43,6 x 40,9 x 18,5 cm Weight: 24 Kg Made in Italy Location: Frankston VIC 3199 Price: $3000 (RRP - $5200) Item Condition: Brand New - still in the box Reason for selling: Change of financial situation Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Pure Class A 2x35 Watt PSET (Parallel Set) which is used in the very high end tube amplifiers like Aries Cerat $30K USD. This gives you uncompromising power to run in pure class A almost any 89+ db speakers. Lack of power is Achilles weak spot of most tube amplifiers and I believe PSET is the best solution used by the very high end manufacturers. Legendary Mastersound brand - makes PF100 tube amplifier $50K USD. Fabulous musical EL34 tubes. To my knowledge, this model is absolutely the best value for integrated tube amplifier in that price range; made in Italy but priced similarly to comparable Chinese models. Includes very good phono pre-amplifier - same as in the flagship models. This is Box R version with remote control (cost $330 AUD extra). Links below shows additional information about The Box and Mastersound brand in general: http://www.mastersoundsas.it/1/reviews_4451773.html https://soundapproach.com/mastersound-box-r-integrated-amplifier-class-a.html https://www.technologyfactory.eu/en/mastersound/integrated-amplifiers/mastersound-box/a-5384-10000401 https://forum.audiogon.com/discussions/axpona-2018-integrated-mastersond-box Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  10. Item: Little Dot Mk II Headphone Amplifier Location: Adelaide Price: $SOLD Item Condition: Mint Reason for selling: Selling head-fi rig Payment Method: Pickup, EFT, Cash, Paypal (buyer pays all transaction fees & postage) Extra Info: Great condition and one of the best value headphone amplifiers available. Australian variant with 220v power supply. Upgraded Value Electronic CV4010 KQDD/K and 6H6 VIII tubes. The device has a single volume knob on the front along with a blue LED and of course, the 6.3mm port. At the back you can find the input and output RCA pots as well as the power button. The specifications of the amp are as follows: Input: Gold-Plated Unbalanced Phono (RCA) Jacks Output: 1/4" Gold-Plated Stereo Headphone out Driver Tubes: 6JI Power Tubes: 6N6 Frequency Response: 20HZ - 50KHz (-1dB) THD+N: 0.1% (50mW into 300 ohms) Suitable Headphone Impedance: 32 - 600 ohms Pre-Amplifier Output Impedance: 10K ohms Power Output: 300mW into 300 ohms 200mW into 120 ohms 100mW into 32 ohms Average Power Usage: 28 watts Dimensions: 210mm (length) by 110mm (width) by 130mm (height) Weight: 2.5 kg or 5.5 lbs. The Little Dot MK II boasts a SEPP (single ended push pull) circuit (in similar vein to the rest of the MK-series tube amplifiers) greatly increases sound quality, dynamic range, output impedance, and harmonic distortion. The Little Dot MK II also provides gain control of 3, 5, and 10 via internal DIP switches for fine-tuning so you can maximize synergy with almost any headphone you have, whether it be 32 ohms or 600. Some cheap tube amps have what is called a hybrid design, where the power is provided by a transistor based circuit and the driver circuitry is tube based. Examples of these designs are the headphone amps with only a single vacuum tube (the driver tube). Not only does the Little Dot MK II have a fully tube based design (both power and driver elements are tube based) it actually has independent circuitry for the left and right channels. So essentially, you have 1 power tube and 1 driver tube for the left channel and 1 power tube and 1 driver tube for the right channel. This is called an SEPP design (think of it as 2 + 2 design).

  13. Item: Plinius SA201 Stereo Power Amplifier Location: Canberra, ACT Price: $1200 Item Condition: Used Reason for selling: Have upgraded my power amplifier to mono blocks and need to save space, and keep the peace at home. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: For sale is my well cared for Plinius SA201 stereo power amplifier in the silver finish. I have been the first owner since circa 2006. I can't see any noticeable scratches or marks, so the curvaceous casework has stood up well over time. But alas I have felt the need to upgrade after many years good service, and when the opportunity arose I purchased a pair of mono blocks. This amp is rated at 225 watts per channel into 8 ohms. Both channels driven from 20Hz to 20kHz at less than 0.2% total harmonic distortion. Current Output: 40A short duration per module. Fuse protected. Hum and Noise: 90dB below rated output 20Hz to 20kHz unweighted. Gain: 32dB. Input Impedance: 47k ohms Dimensions: Height 170mm, Width 445mm, Depth 453mm, Weight 25kg Here's one review to give a general feel for the amp: https://www.dagogo.com/plinius-tautoro-preamplifier-sa-201-stereo-power-amplifier-review/ I've been using this amp with PS Audio products - the Directstream player, DAC and the BHK preamp. You could describe the sounds as smooth and coherent. Spatial performance is excellent with an expansive soundstage. There is plenty of detail, presented in natural fashion without being in your face. I have the original Plinius double-box packaging for transportation. The amp weighs 25kg so local pickup is preferred. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  14. Item: NC1200 Monoblock Power Amplifiers Location: Melbourne Price: $2800 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Upgrading Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I bought these new about 6 months ago from March Audio, and they have been a solid performer all round. My upgrade path from these costs about an order of magnitude more, so you get an idea of just how good they really are. Specifications are available - https://www.marchaudio.net.au/product-page/p701-flagship-mono-block-power-amplifier They have been driving a pair or PMC MB2se speakers for 6 months, with a RME ADI DAC as the preamp. For anyone looking to make the switch to Ncore amps, I can't recommend these enough. I have the original boxes, and can ship if required (at buyers cost). I think these new are are about $4300 AUD at the moment (not including shipping). Photos:
  15. Item: Cyrus 7SE integrated amplifier Location: VIC, Hawthorn Price: $200 Item Condition: After finally upgrading I’m looking to find a new home for my much loved Cyrus 7SE integrated amp. This is a 60W per channel into 8 and 74W into 4 ohms amp. I’m its 2nd owner and have had it for ~17 years during which time it has performed admirably. Always kept in a pet and smoke free environment. Selling as-is: I’ve noticed recently that occasionally the volume control was getting a little inconsistent – not that often, but a turn/click might not register and you have to turn it again. It could use some maintenance & TLC by someone that knows how. Even so, it retains all the PRAT and rhythmic ability that the older Cyrus gear has been known for. Includes power cable, cyrus right-angled speaker connectors, AND remote! No boxes / manuals. Reason for selling: No longer in use, upgraded. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Cyrus don’t have a page specifically for the Special Edition, but I think the specs were the same. https://www.cyrusaudio.com/support/other-resources/legacy-products/integrated-amplifiers/cyrus-7/ Electrical Line inputs – 5 Line + 2 Tape Outputs – Bi-wire Loudspeakers, Tape-out, Preamp-out, Headphone Power Supply – 180VA Toroidal transformer with 5 regulated rails External – Highly regulated PSX-R upgradeable Communications – MC-BUS System BUS Remote Control – Supplied with Cyrus Amp/CD/tuner system remote control Specifications Continuous Power – 60W/CH (both driven into 8 Ohms) 74W/CH (both driven into 4 Ohms) With PSX-R – 60W/CH (both driven into 8 Ohms) 90W/CH (both driven into 4 Ohms) Current – 30 Amps peak to peak Distortion – 0.003%, 1kHz (into 8 Ohms) 0.005%, 1kHz (into 4 Ohms) Frequency Response – -3 dB, 1Hz and 80kHz Damping Factor – 80 Sensitivity – (50W) Line: 200mV Input impedance – 50kOhm (RCA).

  23. Item: Analogue Domain Isis M75D MK2 Reference Integrated Amplifier Location: Perth Price: $22,000 ono (please feel free to make offers - I want to move this along) RRP is approx 40k AUD with Australia tax added. Item Condition: Excellent, barely run in. Reason for selling: Running dual monoblocs from a single source now Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: When I had a variety of inputs, Turntable, CD player, DAC, etc this was a killer solution - reference sound in a compact (albeit quite weighty) integrated amp. I am now in a position where I run everything through a single DAC and am running that straight into a pair of monoblocks so this beauty has to go. In short this is one of the best way to get Analog Domain sound for less than $100,000. Review here: https://www.monoandstereo.com/2017/04/analog-domain-m75d-mkii-integrated.html Photos:
  24. 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
  25. Item: Cambridge Audio 840A V2 integrated stereo amplifier Location: 2022 Price: $700 Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: Too many amps Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Includes user guide, remote control and power cord.
