  1. Further information: This pre-amp / processor requires very little introduction. Was Marantz flagship processor and supports the recent codec, such as DTS-HD MA and Dolby True HD. Has the ability to map height or width channels however it doesn't support the latest Atmos, Auto & DTS-X object sounds. I have the original box and Auddessy mic, remote is working, but isn't perfect, however I have always controlled the unit via Marantz App. Will serve someone looking for a great experience with surround / 2 channel sound not looking to move into the new object audio. Note supports both XLR and RCA connectivity which can be mixed based on your configuration. Also offers 2 channels for subwoofer connections and eq. I do have the original box, but would prefer not to ship it. While I have requested $1200 I would also be open to a straight swap for a panasonic DP-UB9000 4K player Photos:
  2. Item: Canary Audio CA-601 Mk II Preamplifier, approximately 12 years old, zero problems. Location: Brunswick, Melbourne – will ship interstate, have original packaging & boxes. Price: $750 firm - it is priced to sell as was $3000 when new. Item Condition: This item is in near excellent condition the usual wear and tear – a small scratch on the top grill as can be seen in pics. The lovely gold Fascia has no visible marks to the eye and it and the preamp operates perfectly. I have the original packaging so I can post anywhere in Australia. Although I only have a few posts in the stereonet community I have over 1200 positive feedbacks on ebay under the same user name: https://feedback.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback2&userid=punkterfuge I'm also happy to chat about it on the phone to negotiate delivery to prospective interstate buyers etc. The specs can be seen here: http://www.canaryaudio.com/601.html Reason for selling: Side-graded to Electrocompaniet preamp. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This is a beautiful sounding preamp that really has that valve magic, particularly in the lush mid-range. It uses two 6922’s and one 6CG7. Horns, piano and particularly vocals have a real liquidity to them that only valves can provide. The Treble is extended and not recessed and the bass is taut. For a valve pre, the sound is closer to neutral rather than overly rich and it responds really well to tube rolling, it ships with Sovteks 6922’s, which don’t have many hours on them as I was using Amperex 7308s, which I’m keeping for my headphone amp. Canary Audio gear is generally pretty high end and this is their entry level pre. I have been run it with mainly with Electrocompaniet amps and it has two pre outs for biamping and four inputs, all single ended. Full specs can be found on Canary Audio’s website: http://www.canaryaudio.com/601.html This brief review is from here: https://positive-feedback.com/Issue4/livingvoice.htm “The Canary 601-Mk-II preamp has a smooth, pleasing, musical balance. The music doesn’t wash over you with coloration, or hammer you with dynamics or hyper detail. Musical timbres are natural, and there is texture and body. The bass is very articulate and taut. In my system, this preamp sounded neither dark or bright. High-end details were extended and clean without sounding bright, sharp, or rounded off. With the Canary combo, the music comes across as just a little warmer and more atmospheric than with my solid state stuff. Musical timbres were very realistic, and I noticed no obvious coloration. Other tube amps and preamps might come across as more musical on first hearing, but I think this is due to their having more colorations.” Some more user reviews here: http://www.audioreview.com/product/amplification/preamplifiers/canary-audio/ca-601-mk-ii.html Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.

  5. Item: LINEAR TUBE AUDIO MICROZOTL MZ2 PREAMP/HEADPHONE AMP Location: Melbourne Price: $2200 Item Condition: Faultless Reason for selling: Upgrade (see below) Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, EFT, Paypal (+3%) Extra Info: A word about where this little marvel seats performance-wise (certainly not price-wise) in the scheme of personal experience of owning, as well as auditioning in my systems a number of preamps over the years (some retailing in excess of $15K). Some SN members may have noted my past posts where I shared my enthusiasm for the astonishing value/performance I derived from owning a Consonance Linear 1 preamp, which few years earlier (to my surprise at the time) dethroned at my place a $14K Audio Research Reference unit. My lesson in 'divorcing price from performance' has recently been further bolstered by having experienced few LTA products from this relatively new US based manufacturer, as the performance of this 'unassuming' preamp goes even further! Greater transparency, richer timbres, deeper soundstage, more space between instruments - totally 'unaccompanied' by any audible noise floor. The unit is equally well known as a highly acclaimed headphone amp. It is also a surprisingly impressive 1 Watt amplifier in its own right (often used and reviewed as such) when matched with appropriately efficient speakers. I've been its first owner for the past 12 month. The reason for selling is that I just took delivery of its freshly released bigger brother, the full size MicroZotl Preamplifier (over $7K AUD landed) . Lots of enthusiastic press out there. The example below is the excerpt from Terry London's recent article. Although this particular review is that of the bigger full size unit (the model I just purchased), he begins with quite unambiguous reference to the smaller unit I am listing here: "Almost three years ago, I was stunned by the performance of the Linear Tube Audio MicroZOTL 2.0 preamplifier/headphone amplifier, used as a line stage, when it significantly out-performed my reference Concert Fidelity preamplifier on all sonic parameters. The Concert Fidelity, a hand-built piece from Japan that cost $24,000, had never been surpassed by any line stage I had auditioned for over five years in my system until the MicroZOTL 2.0 with an upgraded linear external power supply retailing for less than $2,000. Needless to say, the MicroZOTL 2.0 was selected as one of Home Theater Review's 2016 products of the year." The unit I am selling, whilst also supplied with the optional upgraded linear external power supply, is the current, upgraded version - in that it now hosts 3 inputs (not 2); is optioned with remote and is fitted with NOS tubes. Happy to answer all relevant questions via PM. Richard Pictures: (apologies for my camera skills...)

Item Condition: 9/10 because it is used Reason for selling: Downsizing Payment Method: COD, bank transfer or Paypal with any paypal fees Extra Info: For sale on behalf of my friend who has is downsizing to integrated system due to his age. The unit is roughly 1.5 yrs old and bought new from authorised dealer. ~100hrs use as mention by the owner.

There is no visible scratches or dings while i took the photos. All manual and remote are included. I can organise the shipping as it comes with all the original packaging for interstate buyer. Please note that this unit has the PHONO input! I can remove the two 6H30 vacuum tubes and pack them in the original box if required. His speakers will also be available for sale when i have more time to help him for the photo shoot. Pictures:

Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Surplus To requirements Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Bank Transfer Extra Info: Aksa Aspen GK-1 PREAMPLIFIER " Sonically stratospheric, the GK-1 builds on lessons learned in the TLP and power amplifier development. It delivers stunning engagement and extraordinary musicality, comparing favorably with the top names in high end. It brings the same, sensational benefits to sound stage, clarity, layering and engagement, particularly when used with AKSA power amplifiers. the GK-1 matches and exceeds the performance of big name products costing five times more. The potentiometer is a very high quality dual gang cermet, enabling the music to shine through."

  16. Item: AUDIO BY VAN ALSTINE Transcendence 8+ Preamplifier (Tube) Location: Perth WA Price: $900 $600 Item Condition: Excellent (used for 70 hours) Reason for selling: Only have room for the main system Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only. Shipping extra Extra Info: I have for sale is a AUDIO BY VAN ALSTINE Transcendence 8+ Preamplifier (Tube). I purchase this amp approx. 4 years ago and cost me $1900. This preamp is designed and built in USA which is a highly regarded unit at the time with great reviews. I have used it as a second system (approx. 70 hours) and was in storage for 1.5 years. The Transcendence Eight+ has a built-in multi-stage high voltage analog regulated power supply with separate regulators for each half of each 6CG7 tube. This results in a marked improvement In dynamics, transparency, detail, bass power and control. It still retains “tube” virtues of smooth musicality with no stress or grain.

  19. Item: Cambridge Azur 851e Pre-Amplifier Location: LWA HQ 64 Burns Bay Road, Lane Cove, NSW Price: $990 Item Condition: Excellent 2nd hand in as new condition Payment Method: Cash, Credit Cards, PayPal, Bank Transfer Extra Info: This just traded, current model Azur 851e Pre-Amp is in perfect condition with it's original carton retails new for $2450. From Cambridge Audio: The pre-amp stage is all about minimal colouration. Take the source signal and pass it onto the power amp stage with as little interference as possible. That’s exactly what the 851E does, and coupled with its solid-state volume control, it retains audio signal purity and precision even at the lowest listening levels. The 851E excels in keeping the signal pure. Every component has been designed not to interfere with the audio signal input and output, meaning that the harmonic distortion and noise levels are so low they’re almost impossible to measure and certainly can’t be heard. A solid state volume control and toroidal transformer also contribute to the incredible sonic purity of the 851E. The toroidal transformer delivers a high quality power output to the amplification circuits with no clipping of the waveform signal, to provide a consistent signal with no transformer noise, buzz or hum. These expensive components coupled to countless hours of tuning mean the 851E delivers an incredibly pure signal to your amplifier. Specifications: THD (unweighted) < 0.00045% @ 1kHz < 0.00057% @ 20kHz S/N (unweighted) < 110dBr < 90dBu Frequency response = 10Hz - 100kHz ± 0.1dB Crosstalk @1kHz > 110dB Maximum output =8V RMS unbalanced 8V + 8V rms balanced Output impedance = 100 Ohms (Unbalanced or Balanced) Subwoofer output = Flat or 200Hz 2nd Order Butterworth LPF Max bass boost/cut = ± 10 dB at 10 Hz Max treble boost/cut = ± 7.5 dB at 20 kHz Dimensions (HxWxD) = 115 x 430 x 385mm Weight = 8.1kg Pictures:
  20. Item: D150A and IC150 Location: Lauceston Tasmania Price: $450 Item Condition: Restored Reason for selling: Cover the cost of restoration Payment Method: Pickup - COD Only Extra Info: The pair were given to me in non-working condition. The preamp only had trivial problems that were easily corrected. All the adjustments to factory specs could easily be achieved. No scratchiness on the volume control or selectors. Good clean sound; amazing for the era!! The power amplifier had major problems and had been hacked by amateurs more than once. Almost all the transistors and all the capacitors and diodes were replaced by me, circuit board repairs done and it works perfectly now. Slight noise with the attenuators at max with headphones but backing them off by one or two clicks fixes that (there is no headphone socket, I used an adaptor). The only minus is the silver cap on one of the preamp controls is missing, you can see it in the image, far left. The amp is heavy, so I'd hate to think of the freight price. Thus I am tentatively offering it for anyone local who can physically pick it up. The price I'm asking only covers the cost of repair, actually I would have charged more like $500 if asked to repair the pair so it is less than cost, I am effectively giving the units away. The matchup of D150A and IC150 would have been possible in 1975 and 1976. Before that the D150A had not been introduced and after that the IC150A came out. The price in US dollars back then was around $349 each, the equivalent of $1,550 USD 2015 or $3,100 for the pair. I can guarantee the work, all of the electronic parts are still available including the rare ICs (the one in the power amp is new). Interconnect cables supplied. BTW Crown was sold as Amcron in Australia but the identification plate and the symbols are all crown. Photo supplied is of the actual units for sale. And yes, the power amp really is DC...a slight DC on my hand held oscillator sent me on a wild goose chase trying to find the DC offset problem BTW anyone wondering where extremely rare parts can be obtained cheaply, often for just a few cents per transistor, try UTSource. Their page won't display in my Chrome browser but Firefox has no problem. They even have some common germanium transistors...https://www.utsource.net/ Pictures:
  21. Item: Gieseler Konverter preamplifier + DAC Location: Ballarat, VIC Price: $2500 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Simplifying Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Very first Konverter to leave Clay's workshop, S/N 0001 (21-04-17). Everything you need to know about this beauty can be found in this thread. Needless to say, this is an exceptional unit from Clay, building on and far exceeding his work on the Klein and Klein II DACs, not to mention a further step up from his standalone preamplifier, too. Clay's retail on these is $4000 - however being the first owner of a Konverter, I was got it for a 'nicer' price which is reflected in the (I believe) very good price I'm asking here. "Inputs Digital: USB, Coax & optical. Inputs Analogue: 2 x RCA Outputs: 1 x XLR + 2 x RCA DAC Chip: Asahi Kasei Microdevices AK4497EQ Output level is variable by remote control with a maximum of 3v RMS or 4.5v RMS depending on a PCB gain jumper setting. The unit has full remote control of all functions except main power on/off. Settings, filter, input, etc information is via a large OLED display. There is a 'Display OFF' mode. The muting system is very sophisticated, eliminating all pops during sample rate changes & DSD-PCM format changes. At this stage there will only be one version which uses two additional Jensen transformers for the output of the DAC chip. In comparison to the usual op-amp stage the transformer was miles ahead in terms of sound quality." Selling to simplify my system a little. Wife always struggled a bit with multiple devices and now with parents doing babysitting duties regularly, the whole thing is too overwhelming for them. As much as I love this thing (I was waiting over a year for it, frequently hassling Clay for updates ), I've decided to keep the rest of the household happy by simplifying a few things (hopefully). *EVENTUAL SALE WILL BE DEPENDENT ON MY FINDING A SUITABLE REPLACEMENT VIA A SERIES OF DEMOS OVER THE COMING WEEKS* Pictures:
  22. Item: Elektra Pre Amplifier Location: Inner West, Sydney Price: SOLD Item Condition: Excellent (one small nick on the top of the preamp - very hard to discern from photos) Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Pickup preferred but can ship at buyer's expense if required. I've had this for a couple of months but I'm looking to simplify my system so this is being listed. The preamp has HT bypass, 3 sets of RCA inputs/outputs and 1 set of balanced inputs/outputs. The included remote only controls volume and mute functions. The Plinius SA-103 I was using with this preamp is also listed for sale. I love this combo but I'm trying to simplify my system. I hope I don't regret this. Pictures:
  23. Item: Audio-GD C3-FV Location: Dandenongs Price: $550 Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: Unsuitable Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I bought this on the weekend to experiment with a power amp that has a current (ACSS) input. Unfortunately it turns out the two are incompatible, so I'm moving it on straightaway. (You will recognise the pics from last week - thanks DMax!) (I note like DMax did that the remote is damaged, but functional.) Pictures:

  25. Item: AM RT-1 preamplifier Location: Rowville, Vic. Price: $3750.00 Item Condition: Like new. Reason for selling: No longer required. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Audio Music RT-1 pre amp in excellent condition Two box design with twin transformer volume controls and valve amplification. One look at this pre and at the standard of construction should convince anyone of its inherent quality and the audio performance leaves nothing to be desired. Please see Osborn Loudspeakers web site for pictures and all information. There are also great reviews on the net. I have been using this preamp in conjunction with my AM-833S monoblocks but no longer require it in my system as I have a Cd player that incorporates an inbuilt pre amp. This item was purchased from the local importer. Pictures:
