  1. Item: Copland CVA306 Preamp Location: NSW 2257 Central Coast - can probably post Price: $1,050 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This seems to be a pretty rare beast. 6-channel valve preamp by well know Danish HiFi company, Copland. I’ve had it for a few years – it’s a great performer, and built like a tank. To be honest, I can find very little about this model on the Net, but it seems it’s still available from at least one US outlet – for US$ 3,995! I’ve used this in straight 2-channel mode, using the Stereo output L&R + the multichannel Sub output. But the intriguing aspect is that it will handle 5.1 surround inputs, and run them to a 5.1 power amp. If you have (say) a Blue-Ray player that will decode and has analogue 5.1 analogue outputs, then this Preamp is way to put some “tube sound” into your system. But at the same time you could use a 2-channel DAC / streamer (as I did) into the stereo inputs. The unit has 6 Sovtek 12AX7LPS valves – all working fine, so far as I can tell. So I guess a good opportunity for some level of tube-rolling. I have no box, so would prefer local pickup, but I could probably repurpose another box and mail it, if required – though it’s surprisingly heavy! I could also leave it Sydney North Shore for pickup. http://www.divertech.com/coplandcva306.html I also found a copy of the manual online - but it's pretty basic. https://www.manualslib.com/manual/752864/Copland-Cva306.html#manual Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  2. I have now had the Trinnov Altitude16 (a 16 channel surround sound processor and optimizer) in my home theatre system for a couple of days now. The Altitude16 (AL16) replaced my Onkyo PR-RZ5100 and Trinnov Amethyst 2 channel sound processor. Those on this forum know that I have been evolving my system for some time and recently I upgraded my 2 channel amplification with the Anthem STR power amplifier. I have retained my Elektra HD2 7 channel amplifier. With the acquisition of the AL16 and there only being XLR analogue outputs, I needed also to do away with the RCA cables connecting my former Onkyo, Amethyst. The only unbalanced cables being used now are the hybrid female XLR out to male RCA cables to my dual subwoofers. It is a bit of a pity that my SVS subs only have RCA inputs The obvious question for some people is WHY would I dispense with a perfectly good Onkyo PR-RZ5100 pre-amplifier? Well it is rather simple. Having been through the steep learning curve of integrating the Trinnov Amethyst into my system and knowing the improvement in sound that yielded for my 2 channel music duties, I thought well why not do the same for my movies/Netflix UHD experience. During the time I had my Amethyst I have become a Roon convert and this now all blends seamlessly into the whole package, particularly so now that I get a solid 48 Mbps NBN connection. Granted that during the last 2 years I have saved my pennies for the AL16, at this early stage I can only say that the AL16 is meeting my high expectations and is a quantum step up from the former 7.2 channel sound achieved with the Onkyo. I think that IF one was to jump straight into the AL16 upgrade path without previously experiencing the setup with the Amethyst, you would be in for a very steep learning curve. So, for me this time, the curve has not been so steep. Having already been familiar with calibrating the Amethyst was a huge bonus. At this point I must congratulate Trinnov in the support that they give. Before and after I purchased the AL16, I have fired off many many questions and I am happy to say that Antoine Selle (from Trinnov support in Paris) has been superb. We have been corresponding by email and despite the time zone difference, replies often arrived within 30 minutes!! You very rarely get this type of service in Australia. Also, very helpful has been David Moseley from Cogworks (in QLD) in offering advice. As most should know Trinnov offer a 5 year warranty on their high-end products. I am feeling very secure that future software updates can/will be done remotely as they become available. I won’t go into the intricate details of the setting the AL16 up, other than to say that you need to be unhurried with a unit as sophisticated as this, as there are so many settings to bed down. The colour manual does a good job to explain the key elements of the AL16 package. To view results of the room optimisation and to operate the AL16 you need VNC software (so you can see all manner of graphs and settings and controls as I did with the Amethyst). I opted to use the Tight VNC software running on my PC and VNC Mocha on my iPad. The AL16 was instantly recognised on my network and all you had to do was to put in your serial number as the password and I was off and running. Suffice to say at present I have two pre-sets that I have called Roon Music (leveraging off my Tidal subscription and NAS drive) and another called Movies/TV. The Roon Music pre-set is a 2.2 channel setup with base management feeding my dual subwoofers. The Movies/TV pre-set is a 7.2 setup (I now have 2 spare channels of amplification … maybe I could go to 9.2 with some Atmos ceiling speakers in the future, but that might be for another day). It was quite remarkable that during the Roon Music calibration I made the deliberate effort to stay out of the room for fear of interrupting the process, well so I thought … in fact I was 2 metres out of the room but directly behind my rear seats (my theatre doors were open at the rear of my home theatre – their usual position). When I moved, the calibration process objected that there was too much movement, so I had to start again! Talk about precision and sensitivity!!! Now for the AL16 sound …. Last night I decided to be bold and watch a Netflix movie. This movie I chose was The Mule starring a very senior Clint Eastwood. Dialogue in some setups are a little unclear .. not so here, even when Clint Eastwood tended to mumble. Soundstage was very spacious and very coherent. Coherency is the single attribute that I used to describe the Amethyst sound (the direct result of Trinnov’s proprietary optimising software), and this is now replicated amongst 7 channels rather than just 2. I was very startled at one point in the movie when rifle shots rang out. The rifle shots (which emanated from the right rear channels) had a sharp cracking sound to them that preceded the bass sound … this sounded very life-like. The Onkyo rifle sounds are somewhat muddied by comparison to the AL16. Then I put on one of my favourite UHD disks, La La Land, to listen to Damien Chazelle’s wonderful score. Well, I was not disappointed. Magnificent and glorious are words to use here and I would suggest that this disk be a reference test for the musicality of a sound processor being fed HDMI input. The Roon Music pre-set in the AL16 is doing an equally good job as did the Amethyst for 2 channel music, although I am still editing the Target Curve for this pre-set and I am sure that I will take some time to get this exactly where I want this. Another aspect that I had to encounter was to edit my ‘devices’ and ‘activities’ in my Harmony Remote. So far this is working well, and I reported to Antoine and David that I am not having ANY HDMI issues at all. I have retained the setup using just ONE 2.0 HDMI out that feeds an HDMI splitter to serve my Panasonic 4K TV and JVC 7900 projector. Time to enjoy and tweak, reflect, enjoy and then tweak some more. Perhaps separate pre-sets for each of my Oppo 203 UHD player, Foxtel IQ4 box and Apple 4K TV.
  3. Item: Primaluna Dialogue Premium Pre-amplifier Location: Cabramatta, Sydney NSW Price: $2,550 (RRP $4,195) Item Condition: Great 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. Still have the original box. 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.

  7. Item: iFi iCAN Pro Professional Tube/Solid State Headphone Amplifier/Preamp Location: Brisbane Price: $1999 ono Express post included - see my other ad for iFi Pro iDSD (Combo deal) Item Condition: Excellent "as new". Bought from AUS store 3/10/19 Reason for selling: NLR upgrading to Auralic/Luxman combo Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only The iFi iCAN PRO is a high-performance device and is a perfect studio-grade audiophile line-stage and headphone amplifier. There are two individual parts in this device which are solid-state and tube amplification sections. Studio-grade Headphone Amplifier The Studio-grade Headphone Amplifier of the Pro iCAN outputs >10V in the single-ended mode and 20V in the balanced mode. While the 20V mode of this device is equivalent to 100W into a 4 Ohm speaker. Also, this device is adjustable from 0dB/9dB/18dB that allows it to work efficiently. Audiophile Line-Stage The Audiophile Line Stage is integrated with the ‘6-Track’ version with four tracks that is used for a truly balanced volume control. This device can work perfectly in both balanced and single-ended mode. It is often used at home or in various expensive hi-fi systems as it has three single-ended, one balanced input, one balanced and one single-ended output. Tube/ Solid-State Real-time Switching The Pro iCAN headphone amplifier has a tube stage that allows it to work in two different ways. With the use of General Electric 5670, the headphones provide premium variant with a different pinout. Also, this device has two individual input circuits; one tube and another solid state that results in giving a high-performance. Class A Solid-State, J-FETs and Fully-Discrete The Pro iCAN has an individual solid-state amplification section that is executed as the tube amplification section that promotes smooth functioning. This device is fully discrete and fully balanced with a tube or J-FET input switchable. It has a ‘tri-brid’ circuit that minimises drawbacks and is considered as pure DC coupled which prevents from using any sonically-degrading coupling capacitors.

  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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.

  19. 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!!

  23. 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?
