Item: Densen system. B200+ preamp, B420XS cd player and B320+ power amp. Location: Sunny Nanango Price: $1600 for each component (so that means $4800 for the lot) RRP at time of buying was $4K for the cd player and power amp, I think the pre was slightly cheaper, about $3.5K. Anyway they are all $1600 here. I have the cd player receipt. Item Condition: Excellent, some very minor scuff marks on the exterior (that do not want to photograph) and excellent on the interior as well. Reason for selling: Had plans to run these with a certain set of speakers but the speakers never eventuated. Have been mostly sitting in the hall way cupboard for the last 2 years. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I bought these from Pymble HiFi before their move and got them at a good price. Intended to keep them and use them when I bought a certain pair of speakers but the stars never quite aligned with that plan and now it is time to make some space in the secondary storage area that I refer to as my hallway cupboard. I am willing to separate but if that happens then it will be first in best choice as to who gets the gizmo remote control (worth an additional $490 new) with its charger and the denlink cable. I have the original double boxed packaging so can post to anywhere. I have attempted to allow for postage in the asking price but may have to add a little for postage to extreme ends of the country. I can deliver to SE Qld buyers personally so if they end up staying in SE Qld I can knock a couple hundred off the price. Note: I have registered all three components with Densen and I believe their lifetime warranty is not transferable. You had to send the faulty component back to Denmark to claim on the warranty anyway so it was of arguable use here in Oz. Andy of HiFi Repair Services is my warranty man now but he wasn't on the scene back when I registered these. Even more info: Yes, the cd player contains a coax digital input so it can be used as a stand alone DAC. It contains a cd-ROM style drive which is mounted on a frame internally, do not get a cd stuck in side it (just don't do it!) as to get to the little spot that manually ejects the tray you have to take the unit apart and remove the entire drive from its frame. It is a massive pain in the rear, do everything you can to make sure you place any cds in the tray properly and don't go shaking it around. This has only happened once, but the experience stuck with me. https://vaf.com.au/collections/denson-ampifers The B320+ is rated at 100wpc into 8 Ohms and 200 into 4. It does not have A and B speaker switching, the extra binding posts are there to allow for biwiring. I'm not sure if the B200+ is still a current model, it may be discontinued, Densen are not great at keeping their website up to date. I have emailed Densen about the fact that they are using incorrect pictures on their website, several of their integrated amp pages all use the same picture of the internals and several of the pics in their preamp pages are actually of their integrated amps. They replied that they use a contractor to create their site and that they would pass on the info to them. This was over 12 months ago. That is probably not relevant, but it irks me, it really does.

Keith (or cheekyboy as he is known in these parts) has kindly sent me a Majestic preamp and 2 Proprius monoblocks as part of the Graham Slee loaner program. Loaner programs are great, as I'm discovering, you get to play with new toys for a few weeks for only the cost of the postage (both ways guys, best to get that out there now, both ways) and that is a no brain-er in my opinion. I haven't had the Slee gear for long enough to do a full write up yet I just thought I'd start on the process ahead of time and throw in a pic or two to keep the visual-ites amongst us happy. There they are, dwarfed by those two disc spinners of mine. The little Majestic is both a DAC and a pre and, as I have found out, has a massive amount of gain. I don't think I've taken the volume control past 8 o'clock yet, there just hasn't been a need. The two Proprius monoblocks are actually smaller than a carton of cigarettes (that's a carton, not a pack, they may be small but they aren't that small!). They are actually only slightly larger than their power supplies. My initial impressions are extremely positive, the sound quality is excellent and the musical capability of this system is in no way related to its physical size. I'll throw in a couple of shots of the Majestic because I think it deserves it, a DAC with six inputs hey, who would have thought. And a usb makes 7, almost forgot. I'll try to dig in and get to the details over the coming weekend, stay tuned.
