Further information: Open to offers and trades. Up for sale is the Cary Audio CAD120S amplifier with near new Mullard KT88 tubes (bought just before Christmas 2019) and stock 6SN7 tubes. I have original box so can arrange for shipping at buyers expense and risk. I bought this amp from a SNA fellow member. It sings beautifully everyday and night. It’s built like a tank and weight nearly 30KG. It has two modes which is switchable on the fly: triode (60w) (Laid back and smooth) and ultra linear (120w) ( bass bass bass). It will drive most of the speakers comfortably. The RRP of current model (CAD120s MKII) is AUD$9,999 so I’m asking for about 1/3 of RRP with near new tubes so it’s priced well to sell. Please note that this is a 220V version. I can supply a step down transformer at extra cost or you can buy one for about $300. The amp has a minor hum, I cannot hear it in the day time or during music playing. I can only hear it at quiet night and music not playing. The hum can be tamed down with good power cable and conditioner. it also has small scratch on the top of the transformer, not sure why, I don’t stare it after the first setup. Being so many tubes, it puts out a bit out heat, however only at a warm level, not boiling. You can put your palm on the transformer without a problem.

Item: Cary 303/200 HDCD/CD Player 230vac Location: Gosford Nsw Price: $1175.00 Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: Retiring audiophile Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal plus fees COD Only Extra Info: This player has been highly modified by our own George Stantcheff with the addition of triple stacked AD844 as I/V, as per the thread here on DIY Audio - http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/digital-line-level/227677-using-ad844-20.html "Couple of days ago we compared my Cary 303/200 using just the I/V of the AD844, up against the Thorsten Losetch designed AMR CD77 (TDA1541 double crown) that uses Thorsten's special designed I/V stage which I believe is tube based, output impedance <100ohms, so a good match with the Lightspeed as is the Cary. I was expecting the AMR to be better, just by it's reputation and the designer behind it. 3 of us within 20sec thought the Cary was a clear winner, top to bottom, front to back and side to side, and it remained that way for the rest of the session, the owner of the AMR was mute and stone faced and said nothing for the 1.5hrs of A/Bing, and probably saddened by the result, the listening session which went for 4hrs, the last 2.5hrs was the Cary only. The system was my Lightspeed Attenuator feeding 2 x Halcro DM-78 monoblocks (input impedance 100kohms) pushing a pair of Wilson Watt puppy 8's This proved what I've been hearing that this AD844 as an I/V is something very, very special when used as I've done with no feedback" This player is as close to "State of the Art" (if there's any such thing) as I've heard under $20k. Due to the mods, the balanced connectors no longer operate. Only being sold due to the owner of the last several years retiring from the hobby. Complete with orig remote & manual. Will pack & ship worldwide at buyers cost. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
