  4. 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?

  7. 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:

  13. 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:
  14. 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.

  17. Item: NAD C368 with Bluos (MQA / Bluetooth / Internet streaming) Location: Canberra Price: $799 Item Condition: Good to Very Good Reason for selling: No longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash if in Canberra, or Paypal + postage if required Extra Info: Very versatile integrated amplifier with inbuilt DAC and Bluos module allowing you to access pretty much any music service wired, or wireless, with full MQA unfolding through Tidal.

  18. Item: SOLD elsewhere: Manley Labs - The Purist - Valve Preamplifier Location: Melbourne Price: $1250 Item Condition: very good Reason for selling: replaced by an Earle Weston special preamp Payment Method: Pickup - COD with free personal delivery around Melbourne Extra Info: Second model release with the 24K Gold plated facia. Retail $1650 USD in 1994. Designed in the early nineties by David Manley himself. With quite a few interesting features and options. For example, three level system gain setting, 3 sets of outputs, or the balance controls also serve as a form of dynamic tone control via their use of variable negative feedback, which works out as ideal for taking the edge off some modern aggressive mastering. "Manley Laboratories 'The Purist Preamplifier'. Designed by David Manley, the Purist Preamplifier uses the best available parts with the shortest, cleanest, signal path possible. This Preamp has all the vital signal conducting electronics located near the input / output jacks with the controls connected with long shafts. The high-current line circuit employed here is one we have developed and refined over the years in our MANLEY Professional series. Minimalist signal path is accomplished with a few short, wide PC traces and very little wire. The signal wire is six nines pure copper, teflon insulated and well shielded. The signal is direct coupled through the tube stages and is only passed through one capacitor per side -and these are premium MIT foil/film caps . The gain controls are precise conductive plastic pots with the main volume being a custom unit specially imported that has superior electrical and mechanical characteristics. These controls are a large part of why this preamp has such a musical appeal similar to precision passive preamps. While passive preamps are notoriously sensitive to interconnect cables, this preamp will be easier to interface due to its constant low impedance output and high impedance inputs. Finally (but really initially) the power supply is a simple, highly filtered, well engineered design without the reliability problems common in other high voltages supplies." Manley Purist Preamplifier: Vacuum tubes: 2 x 5751, & 2 X 6414 Input Impedance: 100 kOhm Output impedance: 50 Ohms Freq. Response: 10 Hz - 80 KHz S/N ratio: typically 95 dB A WGT 20-20K Power consumption: 33 Watts (275mA @ 120VAC) Gain with FB @MIN: H=16, M=12, L=10dB Gain with FB @MAX: H=25. M=22, L=19dB Noise Floor: typically -70 dB Five line level inputs MUTE switch Balanced XLR & Unbalanced RCA main outs Precision Stepped volume control Record Output Pictures:
  19. Item: Audio Research Ref 3 Location: Perth - South of the River Price: $4300 Item Condition: Used, Excellent Reason for selling: No longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Bought this used from Audio Fidelity in September last year (less than 6 months ago). I changed the handles to silver for the Ref 5 look (looks much better and sounds better too! ;-) Seriously this preamp sounds as good as they said, I'm selling because there's an opportunity to upgrade to Ref 5. A couple of SNA members advised me not to sell this because they think that The Ref 3 sounds better than the Ref5 and even the Ref6. Unfortunately I have to sell this as I need the money. Last listing of Ref 3 on SNA was sold for $5500 so you know this is a bargain. I no longer have the box so local sale is preferred. Pictures:
  20. Item: Lightspeed Attenuator Location: Hobart Price: $320 including shipping in Australia Item Condition: Used - Excellent condition Reason for selling: No longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash / Bank transfer / PayPal (+3.5%) Extra Info: LDR based variable attenuator. I am the second owner of this item, which is about 3 years old. Good condition, works perfectly. My lightspeed is packed away, so I have pinched some photos from another ad (from someone who is much better at using a camera than I am too). Mine (soon to be yours!?) looks identical. Pictures:

  24. Item: CONSONANCE LINEAR 1 PRE AMPLIFIER (remote version) Location: MELBOURNE Price: $2850 Item Condition: FAULTLESS Reason for selling: New direction/Surplus of Components (Primare Phono stage coming up soon) Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, EFT Extra Info: This is a current flagship preamp in the Consonance line up. As per my earlier shared impressions here on SN ( having previously owned more than one version of this brand's mono block amps), I regard Consonance to be one of the most 'overlooked' manufactures of High- End audio. I purchased this unit new from Greg Osborne (Australian Distributor) - only after having the benefit of auditioning it in my setup and comparing it to my then-preamp, Audio Research Reference (which I farewelled soon after without shedding a tear...) I have the original packaging, remote and owner's manual. Prefer a local pick up but would consider appropriately insured currier delivery at buyer's expense. Happy to answer any relevant questions via PM. Richard For the moment, the included pic is a 'googled photo' of same unit. Pictures:
  25. Item: Naim NAC 102 w MC phono stage, SNAIC, NAPSC Location: Camperdown, Sydney, NSW 2050 Price: $645 or swap for a chrome bumper hicap Item Condition: 9/10 except missing remote Reason for selling: Surplus to requirements Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Up for sale is this NAC 102 from 1996 s/n 128422 as part of Naim's popular Olive series. This is ready to roll with moving coil phono 523/1 phono cards fitted by Naim and the NAPSC power supply; a special extra improving sound quality and powering the few back lights of this unit.
