  1. Item: W4S STP-SE Pre-Amplifier with HT Bypass (Black) Location: Sydney Price: $1100 Item Condition: Used - Excellent Condition see Photos Reason for selling: Upgrade/ NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (as a friend or +fees), COD Only Extra Info: Purchased this Pre from @scumbag. Has been an excellent addition to my system and was a real keeper - however I have simplified my setup and moved away from separates. Lots of great reviews of this unit online and on the forums. Instead of trying to explain the magic myself, refer to the following from previous listing I purchased from: The unit will come with power lead, remote, manual and double boxed. I also bought a 2nd remote from Deep HZ (brand new & not used). The surface of the original remote had become slightly sticky but completely functional. Both remotes included. Able to ship interstate at buyers expense and risk; rest assured it will be well packed. Links to some reviews and features from the W4S website: http://www.stereotimes.com/amp082912.shtml FEATURES: Input / Output wiring upgraded to Kimber Tcss wire 2nd stage filtering caps (4-22,000uf caps) are upgraded to the Wyred 4 Sound Low ESR "SUPER CAP" designed for power supplies Vacuum Fluorescent Display (VFD) Optical rotary encoder (volume knob) Fully functional remote control 12V DC Trigger input (to automatically activate HT Bypass mode) Two - 12V DC Trigger outputs Home Theater bypass (customizable for any input, also DC Trigger input selected) Balance control Absolute phase control (0°/180°) - an interesting experience - it's amazing how changing the absolute phase effects the sound. Efficient (no heat) Tripple-ripple reduction circuit contains 164,560uF of capacitance Extremely low noise floor Fully balanced input to output Buffered passive/active design Automatically switched in Line Stage (when more volume is needed) Discrete volume control using dale RN55d resistors Unbalanced to Balanced conversion (when RCA input selected and XLR outputs are being used) Idle power consumption = 15w Rugged construction ½” Machined and Anodised front panels 60kohm input impedance 3 sets of gold plated unbalanced (RCA) inputs 2Â sets of gold plated unbalanced (RCA) outputs 2 sets of Neutrik Balanced (XLR) inputs 2 sets of Neutrik Balanced (XLR) outputs Factory Selectable mains 115/230VAC Compact size (17”W x 4”H x 13”D) 22lbs.

  2. Items: Great Desktop/Small System Kingrex Pre-Amp V3 Kingrex T20U Amplifier and USB DAC Kingrex Linear PSU MKII (matching T20U) All original packaging in good condition. Original power supply and cables for T20U are included (although you'd never go back to this after using the PSU). Location: SYD – Hurlstone Park 2193 Item Condition: Excellent Price: $400 obo (original retail for the lot was over $1.6k) Reason for selling: Used to be set up as a desktop system on my wife's desk while she was working from home, we're down to one desk now and unfortunately no room to set this up currently. Payment Method: Cash on pick-up, PayPal (+3% or as friend) Extra Info: I am the original owner of all the Kingrex gear. T20U and PSU were purchased from Coem Audio here in Oz in mid-late 2012. Pre-Amp was purchased from authorised seller in the UK in 2014. This is an amazing and well-reviewed setup for desktop listening. Smooth, detailed, fast and with awesome mids and imaging. The Pre-Amp is a great piece of gear in its own right, and elevates the whole stack to another level. Very sad to see this go, and definitely prefer to sell as a package. Used to run these with various speakers over the years and they are able to drive even mid-efficient speakers to levels you would not expect from the size/specs. Just don’t try anything that dips into the sub-4Ohm region consistently, they’ll be challenged …. 😊 On the desk they were set up with a pair of John Blue JB3s, which was an amazing match for near field listening. Can be inspected/tested at my place in Hurlstone Park, and am happy to post insured at buyer’s cost as all original packaging is available. Can also drop off within Sydney Metro area if paid at or near the asking price prior. 6moons review for PreAmp and T20U with PSU: http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/kingrex2/u.html Happy to answer any questions here or shoot me a PM. Cheers, Ralf Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.

  6. Item: Primare SP33 Location: 3782 VIC Price: $1.900 plus shipping Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Chasing butterflies. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (Friend) . Extra Info: Item can be shipped in original packaging. Extra Info: Item can be auditioned. This Pre Processor doesn’t come with a lot of bells and whistles, but I prefer not to waste money spend in area’s that don’t improve things if the basics aren’t right. And that is producing excellent audio. Its build quality is superb and has all the connections you probably going to need. I decided to put it up for sale to raise funds before I start chasing butterflies, or unicorns. Pictures:
  7. Item: PrimaLuna Dialogue Premium Pre-Amplifier Location: 3782 VIC Price: $2.600 plus shipping Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Chasing butterflies. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (Friend) . Extra Info: Item can be shipped in original packaging. Extra Info: Item can be auditioned. This amp has been my reference for audio, but is hardly being used since I mostly watch movies or play games in my home theater room. I kept it around because it is such a great performer, but it deserves a whole lot more use than what I am giving it. Because of this I have decided to chase butterflies in pursuit of the same kind of performance in multichannel audio and looking for a new home and free up some funds. Pictures:
  8. Item: ME 25 Preamp, ME 75 Amplifier Location: Albion Park NSW Price: $1450 delivered as a combo, $950 for the pre, $700 for the power if sold separately Item Condition: As per pics. Some cosmetic blemishes on top of amp Reason for selling: WAF. Need more modern looking integrated that has a remote. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Has served me well with out any issues. Lived in a fan ventilated cabinet. Pics of the internals show the ME branded caps, I've no idea if they are the originals or replacements but i do know the cover had been opened previously. Has been used to drive a pair of VAF floor standers which are 95db sensitive so has not been driven hard and remains cool enough to touch when used for longer periods. I cannot add anything of significance to the volume of writing that has been dedicated to ME equipment on this site. If you need good value, long lasting, high performance equipment these will serve you well. Pictures:
  9. Item: NAD M51 DAC/PRE w/ remote Location: Metro Melbourne Price: $800 $700 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Upgrading to R-2R Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Bank Transfer *Note remote has something loose inside but works fine. Pick up only for now. Pictures:
  10. Item: Cyrus Pre XP Location: Melbourne 3068 Price: $650 Item Condition: Good condition and including the remote control as pictured Reason for selling: Not being used and getting ready for the next upgrade Payment Method: Pickup - Cash and Paypal (buyer pays fees) Extra Info: Offered for sale is a Cyrus Pre XP preamplifier. It has been faultless during its time with me and I have been hanging on to it for too long. The volume control does not use a pot so when at a low volume setting the balance remains even between left and right - also a benefit when using the built in headphone stage. Other features include being able to name (from a fixed list) each input and configure a fixed level AV passthrough for those integrating their 2-channel and theater rig. The zone 2 output can also track any of the inputs separate to what you are listening to and of course it has great synergy with Cyrus amplifiers. The unit also supports the addition of a Cyrus PSX-R power supply to improve performance. Of note on this unit is whilst I call it a Pre XP it has a Pre xp d sticker on the back. I understand the difference is they are the same but one has a built in DAC. I am not sure why it is like this I purchased it this way. Either it never had the inbuilt DAC or it has been removed at some stage. Inputs – 6 analogue Outputs – Zone 2, preamp out, headphone Questions welcome, Cheers, Nick Pictures:
  11. Item: My much loved Parasound Halo P5 has just turned 3 Location: Preston VIC 3072 Price: drop to $1300 includes donation to SNA. If shipping is required this will be at the cost of the buyer. Item Condition: Perfect nic, includes original packaging, remote control, manual. I am the second owner and have had the P5 for around 18 months. When I received it I unwrapped the remote from its original packaging. Reason for selling: It is with a sad heart I am parting with this great little pre. It was my first foray into stereo. I have moved onwards and upwards and remain with Parasound. Payment Method: prefer pickup and cash, will go down the Paypal path if needed (the purchaser incurs any overheads associated with this), COD Only Extra Info: Features and Specs can be found here Parasound Halo P5 Pictures: The pics below are of the actual unit up for sale.

  13. Item: Swift GK1 pre amp Location: Richmond VIC Price: NLA Item Condition: Reason for selling: Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Swift GK-1 - a bit of a legend hereabouts. designed and built by Hugh Dean with wood sides, grey enamelled top with reflective mirror behind the tubes. Hugh did a limited run of these before deciding that making a commercial product (as opposed to supplying kits) was too stressful. I think they were around $4k. It has a remote. This is an EOI at the moment - another pre I would like might become available. Pictures: if you're interested pm me. http://members.optushome.com.au/russcb/products_preamp_swift.html

  21. I know sometimes it sounds like a bit of a cliché when people say "the picture does not do it justice" but in this case it is true. The system looks pretty good in the picture but the gloss and colour of the timber just does not come across. The Redgum stack looks 5 times better IRL. I wanted to start this review with a little background info since there isn't that much info out there regarding Redgum components (and I did a lot of googling!). For instance, I am willing to bet that while you can get a fair amount of info from the Redgum website about their choice of volume control (individual channel knobs or single knob) but did you know that you can adjust balance from the remote, and then reset the balance to 50/50 at the touch of a button? What about the fact that there is an info sheet stuck to the base of each piece of Redgum gear that includes not only the model number and year but also the name of the buyer and the details of any personal modifications they requested? So if you're buying second hand each piece of gear tells a story. My RGCD5ENR for instance was initially purchased by Tony Wright of Sydney and there is a note that he planned to remove the front panel prior to use. Now I don't know Tony, and I guess I'm not likely to, but having a name to assign to the player makes things a bit more personal. (I can deduce one or two things about Tony though, the first is that he obviously likes his music and doesn't mind paying for good gear, the second is that he is no fool, he has vibration dampened the case with two rows of blutak stuck to the underside of the top panel, cheap and effective, very nice!) I have said in the past that the design of the Redgum cd players is a little odd, using a cd rom as a spinner is pretty interesting cosmetically, philosophically and practically. I have to admit cosmetically it does make the player look a bit commonplace, it is a definite let down after that gorgeous timber faceplate. Philosophically it makes me wonder just how seriously I should take all the talk of other manufacturers regarding mechanism stability, cd clamps and custom error correction techniques when this player sounds damn good without any of the above. Practically I love the idea of a cheap and easily replaced mechanism, but the lack of a screen telling you what is happening is a bit of a bugger which is why I use my Consonance cd120 as a transport and the RGCD5ENR as a DAC. Another thing I wanted to mention, the RG175 mono-blocks have their AC power socket very close to their external heat sink so there is not enough room to use certain types of power cords. If your power cord has a thick, round plastic end just behind the three pin plug (as many expensive power cords do) then the heat sink renders it unusable. It isn't a big thing but it was certainly something I noticed as I couldn't use my custom power cords. I believe the newer model (since mine are 2007 vintage) has the heat sink mounted underneath so this is unlikely to be a concern. And last but not least, Redgum uses Philips remote codes, (as do Consonance and Myryad and many others) so I only need one remote even if I switch cd players. Yeah, I know it means nothing to most people out there but for me it leaves more room on the armrest for cd cases and chocolate wrappers and I really appreciate that. I'll get into the Pre and monoblock functionality next, and I'll put up a pic of that info sheet I mentioned. Edit: And here it is.
  22. Hey Guys, I have a Razer Leviathan and have it connected to my TV. Unfortunately it doesnt come with a remote and I want to control the volume. I understand that I would perhaps need a pre-amp stage to have a control interface where volume control can be done. Is there perhaps a cheap optical pre-amp that comes with a controller to control volume. Looking for a very simple device. Thanks, Shaun
  23. What is impedance matching and how sensitive is it? Doing some research there, seems to be some formulas, and some simple rules that follows low output and high input impedance is good, which most manufacturers implement. Beeing a good consumer I would think that all is well. But is it?
  24. I've recently acquired a Sennheiser HD650 and I'm currently looking for a headphone amp under the $1k mark. The source of my desktop system is an iMac27. Ideally I'd like a DAC+Pre+Head amp to be able to drive my active Audioengine A5+ speakers as well. I'm considering a Schiit Bifrost USB Gen2 & Uber upgrade ($705 at Addicted to Audio), SOtm sHP-100 ($999 at Addicted to Audio), or a 2nd Burson. Any suggestions?
  25.
