  1. Item: Dared VP-845 Vacuum Tube Amplifier Location: Mid North Coast Price: $1500 + postage (firm) RRP $5500 Item Condition: very good Reason for selling: no longer required Payment Method: Bank deposit, Paypal (3%) Extra Info: I bought it from SNA member last month. The sound is really sweet when the tubes heated. I don't have original box but will box securely to post. Current tubes include: 2 x Haltron 6sn7gt (upgraded) 2 x Urimar ecc83 (upgraded) 2 x Golden Dragon 845B Specifications http://www.dared.com.au/#/vp-845le/ MAX OUTPUT POWER: 35W PER CHANNEL FREQUENCY RESPONSE: 20-20KHz (±1.5dB) DISTORTION: <1% SIGNAL TO NOISE RATIO: >84dB INPUT SENSITIVITY: 250mV INPUT IMPEDANCE: 100K ohm OUTPUT IMPEDANCE: 4 ohm/8 ohm TUBES: 845 x2, 6N8P (6SN7) x2, 12AX7 x2 BIAS: Automatic POWER SUPPLY: 240V/50Hz Dimensions: L550 x W260 x H330 mm Weight: 34.0Kg Please see 6moons review: Back to my very first question: Is this flagship integrated amp worth its massive weight in cash? Should you go with 845s or 300Bs? Allow me to stretch your imagination and use the Song Audio SA-1 dual-chassis preamp and SA-300MB 300B monoblocks (which you might have noticed in my tube room) as my reference point. The VP-845 is a very serious contender in one or two classes below the nearly 3 times as expensive Canadian kit which does everything in a more refined way. The Song Audio separates are the best of the best and I have to confess being tempted to own 'em. If you do not pride yourself as a perfectionist, you pay $5,900 less with the Dared VP-845 and merely sacrifice the top-most musical refinement that you probably wouldn't be prepared to pay for anyway. And in consolation, you get more power. That means you might not have to invest in another pair of high-efficiency speakers if you do not already have one. For $3,500, I don't think I could have gotten myself a sweeter deal than the VP-845. Link review: https://6moons.com/audioreviews/dared/845_2.html Photos:

  3. Item: Prima Luna Dialogue HP Integrated Tube Amplifier Location: Douglas HiFi - Perth Price: $4850 (Ex-Demo - One Only) Item Condition: Ex Display - Full Warranty Reason for selling: Recently Discontinued Model - Making space for the New Model Payment Method: Visa, Master, Cash, Direct Deposit Shipping Available Australia Wide Extra Info: Here's a chance to grab a sale price on our ex-showroom model of the Prima Luna Dialogue Premium HP integrated Valve/Tube Amp. With (2x) 70W rms of valve power the Premium HP will deliver a room filling sound into nearly any speakers. With a total of (8x) EL34's in the output stage there is a true sense of power, control and effortless sound. ONE ONLY AVAILABLE AT THIS SPECIAL PRICE Prima Luna have made quite a name for themselves by making modern tube amplifiers that have the magical warmth and depth of tubes coupled with modern world technologies applied to make them fuss free without impacting sound. The Prima Luna range is all expertly designed and manufactured to a level that seems impossible for their price.... more importantly the sound has the sublime sound of tubes coupled to a neutral, airy top end without the roll off of many other tube amplifiers. The PrimaLuna DiaLogue Premium integrated amplifier has been hailed by experts as the best without regard to cost. Sam Tellig loved it in his review for Stereophile magazine, giving it a Stereophile Class A Recommended Component rating. Dick Olsher, a world expert on vacuum tube audio stated in his review for The Absolute Sound magazine said “It’s my current benchmark in integrated tube amplifiers.” Merriam-Webster defines benchmark as, “Something that serves as a standard by which others may be measured or judged.” We could have easily doubled the output power by simply doing what everybody else does: Run the tubes harder. You’ve seen it. Two power tubes per channel running at the jagged edge, producing 75 or even 100 watts. They also produce unhappy customers, who have to replace tubes every 12 months whereas PrimaLuna customers may go ten years before re-tubing. A better, though much more expensive way to build, is to keep running the tubes easy, but add four more EL34s. That required enlarging the toroidal power transformer, adding a second Adaptive AutoBias board, and all the circuitry upgrades including the tubes, sockets, Swiss wiring, and Takman resistors. The result is the HP. One of the most powerful tube integrated amps in the world. Delivering 70 watts per channel from EL34's, 80 watts from KT88's, 84 watts from KT120's, and 96 watts from KT150's. And like all PrimaLuna amps, the tubes are run so easy you can use it every day and just relax. HEADPHONE AMP built in too! One of the best headphone amps in the world. Most tube integrated amps and preamps use a solid state op-amp chip for running headphones. Stand alone tube headphone amps will vary in quality like any other tube amp. Headphones are simply small speakers that require less power. Some will use smaller output tubes that groan to have enough dissipation to run power-hungry planar headphones. Other brands, including those costing $5,000 or more like Mal Valve, will use larger output tubes, then use a voltage divider network to drop the power down to an acceptable level for headphones. This is how PrimaLuna designed the HP. (Pictures are of the actual item for sale) Pictures: www.douglashifi.com.au

  6. Item: Leben CS-300XS Integrated Amplifier, serial no. 800131 Location: Dundas Valley, Sydney Price: $2,500 negotiable, please be kind Item Condition: Used, very nice condition, a light dusting but no signs of tarnishing or fading, no fascia harm, no back panel harm, no dial harm and all in taut condition, silk printing intact, no connector harm. Taking unit from a rack a Very minor pair of surface abrasions on right wood panel (right as looking at amp's. front - see image, though the image is still exaggerated by the digital image and phone flash/lighting). 100's of hours used, 1,000's left on tubes. Reason for selling: Utterly adorable little performer, but it really is time to reduce some of the household's excesses. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD Only - in negotiation with a buyer I may reconsider the PayPal option. Extra Info: - I mentioned an "adorable little performer", but this understates this is a very capable amplifier and will make for an extraordinary foundation for someone looking for a small overall system, or even a computer-time amplifier for the desk. There's a lot of big amp. in this small form factor and is no slouch. - Always run through surge protectors and other conditioners, this unit has seen hopefully only the cleanest possible power, well ventilated, pet free. - Very, very reasonable integrated headphone amplifier and 6.3mm jack, highly recommended headphone amp. section. - I have no immediate power cable for the unit, a typical IEC connector (see images). If prompted by a potential buyer I should be able to find something generic for it. Pictures:

The high voltage swing is ideal for powering high impedance headphones. Even at high volumes the Little Dot MK III delivers a smooth, non-fatiguing sound with no hint of dynamic compression or imaging fuzz. The liquid midrange vacuum tube lovers expect is here in spades, and the balance between an impactful low-end with a sweet, airy treble provides a reference quality sound. Tracking precision with low distortion is provided by an ALPS-16 potentiometer, and Rubycon, German WIMA and ERO capacitors ensure the internal circuitry is built with quality in mind. The Little Dot MK III also adds in user-tweaking options such as gain controls to provide maximum compatibility with all your headphones, regardless of impedance or sensitivity. Internal jumpers allow a wide range of driver tube-rolling options including the EF92, CV131, WE403A/B, GE5654, M8100, CV4010, EF95, 6JI as well as all equivalents to these vacuum tubes!

  15. Hi all, I have just picked up my first tube amp as shown in the pics. It is a single end triode (SET) amp with 300B valves. Approx. 10W per channel rms. Until now I have only been using my vintage integrated Marantz 1090 from turntable phono so I don't have a dedicated phono stage. I would like to be able to use the Marantz as the pre/phono stage for the new tube amp until I find a decent dedicated pre (if required?!). I have got it working with the following connections: turntable (Marantz TT 6350) -> Marantz phono input (l+r) -> Marantz Pre-Out -> Tube Amp However with this set-up I can adjust the gain on both the Marantz and tube amp and I'm not sure this is correct? Could it lead to damage if the gain is too high on either one or both? Will it make for a 'noisy' connection? Any advice would be appreciated? Thanks!
