  8. Item: Musical Fidelity Nu-Vista pre-amplifier Location: Melbourne, Inner North Price: Price drop to $1125 Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: Different direction Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, EFT Extra Info: For sale is my example of the classic Musical Fidelity Nu-Vista pre-amplifier. It's a terrific performer, and I'll be sad to see it go. Much is known about the MF shift into nuvistors in the late-1990s and beyond, but for completeness... The pre-amp has 5 line-level inputs, and a phono board (MM). Plus, it's own power supply. One of only 500 made, I brought it in from the UK, this one carries the number 243. Sadly, this one has no remote, or original packaging. It has a couple of scratches on the body of the power supply (see picture). The pre-amp unit is in very good cosmetic condition. AQ input covers not included in the sale. About the MF Nu-Vista pre... What is the nuvistor..? "(It) was/is the missing link between valves and trannies, a 'sub-miniature triode' that's all-tube, only teensy-weensy. Like the up to the first joint of your little finger. And it is a tube, not a transistor, only one encased in metal. The 6CW4 nuvistor triode is roughly equivalent to a Lilliputian ECC88, the '88 being one of the most highly regarded pre-amp tubes in use today. Now, imagine if you could enjoy the bliss of an ECC88 without the size, the fragility, the heat - you know, all of the stuff which transistors offer while throwing away the sound." (Home Theatre Review: https://hometheaterreview.com/musical-fidelity-nu-vista-preamp-reviewed/) Of the sound, the same reviewer said: "At the risk of upsetting those who think nuvistors are crap (and a couple of my valve-lovin' heroes do think that nuvistors horrible), I have to say that I've never heard a more harmonious blending of warmth detail, silent running richness, seemingly unlimited dynamic capabilities total control. I reverted to favourite torture tests like Willy DeVIlle's 'Assassin Of Love', B.B. King's take of 'Don't Get Around Much Anymore', Jeff Beck's 'Ain't Superstitious' and Big Daddy's 'With A Little Help From My Friends' to hear if there really was more on offer. And sure enough, I was able to listen the performances and explore their sonic spaces as if using a 3-D computer sim with perfect 'virtual reality'. Think of one of those museum 'tours' on CD-ROM, or some state-of-the-art computer game. Only this is a sonic world not limited by a 19in screen. But the sound! Life-like vocals with all of those little clues: the sound of tongue touching teeth, breathiness, smooth 'S' sounds. Bass with just the right resonance, yet no overhang. Acoustic guitars with woody ambience. Brass with punch and sparkle. But most of all, a sense of effortlessness which allows music to flow, yet with enough control to keep it in check...as required. The Nu-Vista is, if you'll forgive this rather sordid analogy, both your slave and your dominatrix..." Pictures:

  11. Item: Gieseler Pre-Amp Location: Wollongong Price: $550 ono, happy to post at buyers expense EOFY special $500 posted!!! Item Condition: Excellent; hard to distinguish from brand new. Reason for selling: Gieseler Konverter Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, DD. Extra Info: Had this for about a year or less, and only selling as I upgraded to Clay's Konverter DAC/Pre. Clay's gear should need no introduction, and it always represents outstanding value for money. These have recently been discontinued, however when available they were $1000; this Pre looks and sounds like new at virtually half the price! If you have a Klein DAC, this is a perfect cosmetic match too, and is perfect if you have limited space (eg desktop) as it's compact size belies its big sound! Grab yourself a bargain! Pictures: Please note, the Klein DAC in the pictures is now sold, this listing is for the Pre-Amp only.

  15. Hi I'm looking at buying a cheap Rotel RA-12 to use as a pre-amp. But I do not know if the pre-outs are variable or fixed? I've looked everywhere for the answer! Does anybody know or able to find out? I have found out that the RA-12 is almost exactly the same as the RA-630, if that helps giving the answer. Thanks for any help.
  16. HI all I recently purchased a Rega Elex R integrated amp. I am really happy with the sound but would like to experiment with a tube pre- or power amp. My question is does anyone know if I can: 1 - Add a tube power amp to the pre-amp output and use the Elex R as a pre-amp only 2 - Feed a tube pre-amp into one of the Line-in jacks and use the Elex R as a power amp only. If so does this bypass the Elex R pre-amp. I've added a photo below. Grateful for any advice.

  21. Item: McIntosh MX151 AV Control Centre Location: Sydney Price: $4,900 Item Condition: Used, flawless Reason for selling: Upgraded to the MX160 Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Served as my AV Control/processor for several years - it never once let me down. The MX151 is a software upgraded version from the MX150, to include HDMI 3D passthrough. It's essentially the same as the MX160 ($24,000) but doesn't do ATMOS, 4K etc., but pretty much everything else. Still have original packaging as well as manuals and all gear associated with Mac's stunning Room Perfect implementation. While McIntosh refers to the MX150 as a control center, it is first and foremost an A/V processor. The look of the MX150 is classic McIntosh with a glass front panel and symmetric controls surrounding a bright blue fluorescent display. The MX150 is a great-looking piece of equipment and it is especially beautiful in a darkened room. The glass panel is illuminated by LEDs paired with fiber optic light diffusers. All of the controls on the front panel have a very precise feel and the volume knob is wonderfully smooth in operation. Under the display are a series of yellow indicators which show the channels received in the input audio stream and the channels that are output from the processor. The other four indicators under the display show whether the MX150 is receiving an analog signal, a digital signal, a high resolution audio signal, and whether the RoomPerfect system is engaged. The rear panel of the MX150 supports an amazing array of components and connections. The processor supports two zones and references to “ZA” and “ZB” refer to Zone A and Zone B, respectively. The MX150 receiver supports five HDMI 1.3 inputs and one HDMI 1.3 output. This is enough to handle a satellite or cable receiver / DVR, a Blu-ray player and a gaming system with two inputs to spare. The MX150 supports a full complement of analog audio and video inputs with five component video inputs, two composite video inputs, two S-Video inputs, 9 sets of stereo analog RCA inputs including one with a precision phono preamplifier, and a 7.1 multi-channel input. The MX150 supports nine digital audio inputs (four coaxial, four optical and one balanced AES/EBU). For balanced analog audio, the MX150 includes two sets of XLR stereo inputs. http://www.ultrahighendreview.com/mcintosh-mx151-av-control-center/ Pictures: (Note picture is of my MX160 - the 151 is boxed in the garage, but looks identical)

  23. Item: AMR DP777SE with Gemini cable Location: Brisbane Price: 4700 ONO Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Not used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Bank Transfer Extra Info: Ive now got a pair of avantgarde zeros so the amr is redundant. I was going to keep it for a second system but I doubt I'll ever get around to it so it time to let it go Ive had a couple of questions about which version this is so just to clarify, this is the "signature" edition. Some people seem to think the version with the quad board upgrade or USB board upgrade is the SE "signature" edition, it isnt. The signature is a complete overhaul of the previous version which was the base model with a quad board upgrade. Pictures:
  24. Item: NAD M51 Digital Direct DAC - Silver Location: Macleod 3085, Vic Price: 750 (incl donation to SNA) Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: Not being used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: Firmware version still at v1.39.

  25. Item: Musical Fidelity X-Pre v3 Location: Goulburn Price: $450.00 OBO Item Condition: VG Used Reason for selling: No longer used and I need space Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD, bank transfer Only Extra Info: This was the pre that I used prior to an upgrade to a Classé. Not really much difference in sound after the upgrade, this pre is a little giant killer. Plenty of reviews on the net. To be honest I don't want to sell it as it would make a great back up for minimal outlay, but I have to move some things on, I'm getting buried. There are 2 very light marks on the top edge of the faceplate, other than that it looks and performs perfectly. I've never used the phone stage but it is MM only. I have all the original packaging and accessories. The size is normal length and height of typical components, but about 1/2 width so would work well if you have minimal space. Pictures:
