  2. Item: Primaluna Dialogue Premium Pre-amplifier Location: Sydney 2166 Price: $2,600 (RRP $4,195) Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: It's pretty hard for me to let this go, but rather than being unused it's probably better to have a new home. My power amp is using XLR/Balanced only connection so I had to use my other preamp. All tubes are standard stock primaluna tubes. It's going to be hard for you to get this quality gear at this price, it's almost half price from the RRP of $4,195. I'm the 2nd owner. The PrimaLuna brand has been making waves in the High end Audio industry for producing premium built products that perform to a standard well beyond their peers at the same price point. The PrimaLuna Dialogue Premium Pre-Amp is a wonderfully detailed and warm sound with plenty of treble extension and air. The soundstage that this tube pre-amp presents is huge! This is an excellent valve pre-amp that is super quiet/low noise, a nice dash of the famous tube warmth all with fabulous frequency extension both in lowest bass power and highest, airiest treble. Featuring dual pre-outs, Home Theatre bypass functionality and an awesome sound here is your chance to save a bundle. I would like to do PICK UP ONLY - No Shipping.

  3. Hello All, I'm having a bit of a clean-out and have come to the point where I have decided to move quite a bit of stuff along. Because I've spent quite a lot of time evaluating equipment against the things I build, eventually the time comes to clear things, that time is now.....SO does anyone have opinions to offer on the worth of the Alchemist Pre-Power combination? I've had it for enough years that I have NO idea as to its value so rather than blindly advertise, it seems sensible to me to ask for the collective wisdom that I'm certain is out there: Best Regards to All Alchemist Forseti APD21A pre " " APD20A power
  4. Hi everyone, I have just purchased a pair of Auralic Merak mono block. I am looking for a preamp to match with. If it is Auralic Taurus Pre, would be perfect. Anyone have experience with it, please give me an advice. Cheers, Mike
  5. Item: NAD C510 Direct Digital pre-amp Location: Melbourne western suburbs Price: $399 Item Condition: main unit excellent; remote control non functional Reason for selling: upgraded Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: For sale here is a NAD digital preamplifier. It is a second generation of its type, being based on the venerable M51. The C510 gains the most sought after feature requested by M51 owners being a volume control on the front panel. Featuring USB, coax, optical and hdmi inputs this unit is designed to handle any pcm signal up to 24/192 and process it at 35 bit resolution via 844kHz up sampling courtesy of its custom high speed delta sigma chip. I must note that the hdmi is limited to 1080p - it does not like 4K signals being passed through so you will get sound out of the c510 but no picture sent to your monitor of choice. Finally, the remote has unfortunately been damaged and is no longer functional... this obviously kills the couch convenience and removes some access to features. You cannot rename the input sources, change the device to fixed output from variable volume control or adjust the display brightness. Given this inconvenience it is priced accordingly. Have original carton and am happy to ship interstate at buyers’ expense. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.

  10. We recently bought a home with four Bose 901 speakers mounted in each corner of a large bar area. We had no idea what we were doing and bought a receiver/amplifier combo Yamaha RX-V385 and then learned we needed the equalizer. We now have the correct equalizer and are trying to find the fix to be able to use the Yamaha. Any and all help is SO appreciated! Thank you!! PS - We are not music/tech pros, so specificity would be great!!

  14. Hi gang. I'm continuing on my steep learning curve procrastination.....I mean.....research. I am setting up new gear, and plan to integrate my old Pro-ject 6.1 tt into the new system. I currently use a modest little Creek phono stage. My new setup can potentially be totally balanced front to back. No, this is not a debate about single ended vs balanced post! Rather, I am interested in advice on how to get the best out of the turntable connections (and no, it's not a post about placement, vibration isolation either!). I have a pre with balanced XLR in and out. I have true balanced XLR in Monoblock valve power amps. One set of balanced inputs to pre will be taken by a dac, leaving one spare. So (whew) this is the question. If one runs RCA leads from tt (as it is currently), are these technically carrying a balanced signal? If so, then I assume if up I use/build a phono stage that can keep a balanced signal to pre, then we still have a true balanced signal? Or, does the tt need rewiring for XLR outs? Or, does it not make a difference? Or......? Ideas?

  17. Item: Musical Fidelity X-Pre V3 Preamp Location: Melbourne Price: $350 Item Condition: excellent Reason for selling: surplus to my needs Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: half rack size, all functioning perfectly, built like a tank and punchy clean sound with MM phono stage and remote. Was being used with Vincent mono blocks but the wife has cracked the whip on space, so I'm back to integrated amps (for now). Sad to see this one go as it is a stunner and has served me trouble free all its like (unlike my previous Rega preamp!) Would prefer a Melbourne sale but it's small enough to box up and ship interstate at buyers expense Pictures:

  23. Item: PS Audio BHK Signature Preamplifier (silver) with Tungsram PCC88 tubes and stock tubes Location: Melbourne (Dandy ranges) Price: $6k ---> now $5k Item Condition: Excellent 9/10 Reason for selling: Upgraded Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: One of the best pre's I've owned before the new addition. This unit is also a limited edition pre, signed in gold by Bascom.H.King himself (see photo's). It will come with a box of old tubes x 20 (not tested) as well as an NOS set of Tungsram PCC88/7DJ8 tubes (~150 hours), the stock tubes (~150 hours) and a pair of NOS GE ECC82/12AU7 tubes with D ring getter (~20 hours). The BHK was just edged out in a couple of areas by an AVM PA8 pre which costs twice as much with additional input and output cards. This and the user adjustability of the new pre being upgradeable with new modules such as tube output, tuner, tone control, phono and dac cards as time and money permits has led me to sell. Read the reviews and hype on google for more info on the BHK, it is a very detailed and dynamic pre with a midrange that keeps up with pre's twice as much. One of the areas the BHK kept up with the AVM. That and the fact it has HT bypass, dual outputs and 5 inputs all user adjustable and the tube rolling for different flavours of sound is why I purchased and loved it. Will come with all accessories, boxes and manuals. Can ship if there is interstate interest after cleared funds via Paypal (as friend) or add 2.7% via Paypal (when paying for an item or service). Shipping is at your own risk and I'll ship as per your request. Otherwise cash on pick up preferred. Specs from the website: Zero-loss vacuum tube input stage User accessible switch allows both 12 volt and 6 volt tubes to be used Differentially coupled balanced MOSFET output stage All through hole construction (no surface mount parts) PRP resistors in signal path 5 RCA Single ended inputs 5 XLR balanced inputs Single ended and balanced outputs Single ended and balanced outputs can be used together or separate Fully balanced input to output High current oversized power transformer Fully regulated power supplies using BHK designed MOSFET discrete voltage regulators Full BHK designed zero feedback, discrete MOSFET headphone stage Remote control Front panel standby button for vacuum tube stage -3dB greater than 200kHz Volume and balance through a revolutionary new combination of gain and attenuation control Two output DC control triggers Easy access to tubes if you want to roll with different ones Each input can be configured as a HT bypass Pictures:
  24. Item: TORTUGA LDR3.V2 Balanced Preamp paid $2,800 Location: Melbourne Price: $1,800 Item Condition: As new Reason for selling: Bought $20k Preamp/DAC Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Only reason I am selling is I wanted the Mola Mola DAC and this was only available as a module in their preamp. See the Absolute Sound review of this ultra transparent Preamp with adjustable impedance to suit your poweramp. http://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/tortuga-ldr3v2k-passive-preamplifier/?page=2 I power the Tortuga with a Core Audio Technology ultra silent 12V linear power supply, also selling this (see separate advert) as it is now redundant.
