  1. Item: Audio Research SP14 Tube Preamp with Phono Stage in Excellent Condition Location: Leichhardt Price: $3,500. Item Condition: Pre owned Reason for selling: Clearance Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Credit card on pick up, Direct deposit Extra Info: Can freight at extra cost Here is a familiar name among many audio enthusiasts around the world "Audio Research" These guys have made some of the best preamps and power amps for the keen music lovers. This is a single-chassis unit, shares an outward appearance with the SP9 Mk.II, with half again as many knobs and twice the number of toggle switches. Exceptional sounding and transparent phono stage, with a build quality like a sherman tank. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  2. Item: Audio Research LS26 line stage hybrid preamplifier Location: Pascoe Vale South, Vic. Price: $3700 ONO Item Condition: Excellent condition, well looked after. Hasn't had a lot of use in the past couple of years. Comes with remote, no original box. Reason for selling: Too much hifi, something has to go to make way for more pro audio gear. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info:Beautiful preamp in silver. Comes with remote, however the battery compartment cover is missing. Otherwise there are one or two very minor blemishes on the faceplate, see pics. I've just fitted matching NOS Amperex Bugle Boy tubes from the 1960's, which sound far better the the Sovtek installed previously, and will include a second pair of Bugle Boys also. Pictures:
  3. Item: Audio Research 17SE Hybrid Valve Line Stage Preamp Location: Melbourne Inner East Price: $3,500 $3,200 $3,000 including shipping to major cities, regional centres in Australia; SNA donation on completion of sale Item Condition: Near mint Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup with cash, otherwise Bank Transfer Extra Info: I bought the AR LS17SE from Famo 9 months ago and replaced it with an all tube preamp 3 months ago. Famo is Peter Familari, a SNA reviewer. It was in mint condition when I bought it and still is near mint with no marks, no scratches. The original tubes that Peter replaced has done about 700 to 800 hours and I also bought a set of Electro Harmonix which has about 50 hours. The tubes last between 5,000 to 10,000 hours, so plenty of life in them. The LS17SE is a top hybrid valve preamp, just below the AR REF series at a considerable lower price. The REF3 had a smidgen more detail, maybe slightly wider sound stage but you had to listen for it. This was the review that convinced me of the pedigree of the LS17SE: http://www.theaudiobeat.com/equipment/audio_research_ls17_se.htm Sale price includes AR LS17SE, 2 sets of tubes (Electro Harmonix in unit, AR tubes in box), remote, manual, power chord. Shipping with original packaging. Pictures:
  4. Item: Audio Research GSi75 Integrated Amp/DAC Location: Douglas HiFi - 3/116 Mounts Bay Rd, Perth Price: $25999 $18500 Item Condition: Ex-Shop Demo - Cosmetically As New w/Full Warranty and all Original Packaging and Accessories. Reason for selling: Recently Discontinued Model Payment Method: Cash, Paypal, Direct Deposit, Master, Visa Shipping available Australia Wide Extra Info: With its gorgeous artisan style the Audio Research GSi75 shows off a welded chassis, thick front plate and the combination of new and old ARC cues. As the name suggests, the integrated is a (2x) 75W design, using the KT150s (first used in the GS150 power amp) and now featuring throughout Audio Research’s lines. In addition to being a good quality integrated amplifier, the Audio Research GSi75 sports a very fine phono stage, an outstanding upsampling DAC, and even a very high performance headphone amp. The physicality of the GSi75 is not something to be sniffed at either - It’s a large, sophisticated integrated amplifier for the modern music lover: it does everything you could think of, does it all well, and exudes a sense of absolute class in the process. It’s a tube amp for people who like the sound and the idea of tube amps, but don’t like all the fuss and bother they sometimes cause. Insert, bias, play… it’s all made extremely simple. The onboard phono stage is quiet and dynamic, a perfect match for the rest of the amplifier. Rather than just sounding nice – something many valve designs actively aim for – this one majors on insight and agility. It reveals the harmonic richness in the sound of a piano and renders it with a subtlety of dynamics... equally, when asked to rock out it does a wonderful job of dynamics and slam without ever sounding either harsh or soft and wooly. The DAC – which can be set to upsample to 24-bit, 352.8/384kHz (depending on original sampling frequency) also supports DoP DSD replay – there is also ‘fast’ and ‘slow’ digital filters which help cope with the vagaries of modern (and especially online) digital sources. The DAC allows you to access whatever files you have on hand; 16-bit/44khz all the way up to 2x DSD, so you won’t be left out in the cold. There are a bevy of digital inputs as well; RCA, Toslink and USB all help make the GSi75 the hub of your digital music world. There are also (3x) standard RCA Line Level inputs to complement the aforementioned Phono and DAC inputs. Reviews : http://www.tonepublications.com/review/audio-research-gsi75-integrated-amplifier/ http://www.hifiplus.com/articles/audio-research-gsi75-integrated-amplifier/?page=1 We have all original packaging and remote control.

  8. Item: Audio Research VSi60 Integrated Valve Amplifier Location: Melbourne 3127 Price: $3000 Item Condition: 9.5/10 (good as new, no reason for knocking off 0.5!) Reason for selling: Surplus to requirements (gone solid state this time) Payment Method: Pickup - Cash; Paypal to long-established SNA members Extra Info: Beautiful sounding and reasonably powerful integrated valve amp from the hugely respected Audio Research stable. Purchased in Feb 2016 and with no more than 60 hours on the valves (KT-120). In original box with remote and power chord. This is a relist from a year back - too disorganized to relist it back then. I have reused the same pictures - it has not changed condition in that time (lived in box, just removed recently for a last listen before parting with it). I can demo to serious buyers, including at your place if not too far away. Pictures:
  9. Item: Audio Research Reference 150SE Power Amplifier Location: Melbourne Price: $14,000. Less than a Reference 75SE! RRP: $24,000 SNA Donation: 1% of sale Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Upgraded Payment Method: Pickup/Delivery - Cash, EFT, COD, Paypal, bitcoin Extra Info: I'm the original owner of this wonderful amplifier which has performed flawlessly since I bought it only October last year from Carlton Audio Visual. It is an Australian model with 770 valve hours on it, effectively "just run in" and I have all the original packaging and documentation. Incredibly rich tonal palate, massive sound stage, superb neutrality, extremely quiet, bloom, speed, rhythm and drive and extension galore. Truly a magnificent sound and easily sounds much weightier than its 170W rating - the control on complex passages is astonishing presumably thanks to its "enriched class A/B" bias which gives about 110W of class A. A truly remarkable amplifier, I would never have dreamed of selling this baby if not for the fact that I upgraded to the ARC 250SE monoblocks. Shipping can be arranged at suitable cost but local pick up preferred given its 35kg weight. Includes a 2m Audio Principe Premium Shielded power cable with furutech C19 adapter ($350.)

  15. Item: Audio Research Classic 60 Valve Stereo Power Amplifier Location: Melbourne Price: $4000 Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: Upgraded Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This is a legendary stereo power amplifier with quad matched Sovtek 6550 output valves which still have an estimated ~1000 hours life on them. These valves turn this already great sounding amplifier into an amazingly lifelike musical presentation. This amp's 60W rating belies just how capable this amp is at driving complex loads with ease. It still rivals most amplifiers available today. Despite being a valve amp, like all ARC power amps it is actually a hybrid amp with a solid state input stage and valve output stage. There is a minor warp on the tube cage and a cracked plastic capacitor cover (no effect on functionality). It is an original 240V one for the Australian market. This amp has been lovingly taken care of since it was purchased and I still have the original packaging and manual. Manual: http://www.audioresearch.com/ContentsFiles/CL60 Manual.pdf Pictures:

I have the original paper box for the pre and the cable, local pick up preferred, but shipping can be arrange at buyer's cost. There are two small marks on the pre as shown on photos, the one on the silver front panel upper edge can't really tell unless you look for it. another one on the right handle can be easy to touch up, but I leave it to the new owner.
