  1. Item: Custom Lampizator Amber 2 R2R & Volume Control Location: Auckland NZ Price: $5100AUD Item Condition: Mint/Near New Reason for selling: Change of direction Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Extra Info: Pretty much NIB Custom Lampizator Amber 2. This is no ordinary Amber 2 though, with the same R2R DAC board from the Atlantic, 44khz Super Clock, 5v 5Y3 Rectifier, the Baltic Analog output section with 6N6P tubes, remote volume control with analog in and dual parallel analog outputs, rca spdif, toslink, BNC and USB - The works! I was informed by the NZ dealer that the final tuning was done by Lukasz himself. I had this delivered in Feb 2019, with big plans for an entire new system based around the Lampizator, but life circumstances changed and I have downsized my system significantly. It had approx 1 months use and has been boxed since then. I was hoping to put it back in the system, but time to let it go to a home where it will see the use it deserves. This is a very flexible and amazing sounding DAC/Pre that can be the control centre of your entire system. The lampizator sound is in full effect: detailed, musical, smooth, big and what I can only describe as expensive sounding. I have fully tested prior to listing and everything is 100%. The Lampizator is an absolutely mint condition with both Factory warranty stickers intact, which means there is over 4 years to go on the Lampizator transferable warranty. The Power supply is switchable between 230v and 115V so good for the most of the world. If you are in the market for a new Lampizator Amber, get this instead and grab $2400nzd of upgrades for free for less than the price of the current Amber. I'll even throw in an extra set of 6N6P and an extra 5Y3. Shipping to Aus would be approx $250 AUD. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  2. Item: Mullard 5-10 Monoblock Pair Project Location: Northcote, Victoria Price: 350 Item Condition: Project Reason for selling: Surplus to Time Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: Included: Fully built but not working 100% Monoblock Second unbuilt monoblock (chassis, transformers, turretboards) I bought this pair of monoblocks a few years ago from a chap in South Australia, he was the original purchaser of the kits in the late 1950's/early 1960's. He had told me he purchased the first monoblock in 1957, mail order via a magazine for a kit of parts and a separate order directly with A&R of Melbourne for the power and output transformers. A few years later in the early 1960's he purchased the second monoblock to accomodate his modern stereo system. Both apparently served a flawlessly for decades before being put away for 40 years. I purchased them in original condition, stripped them all down and rebuilt. One of the chassis was surcuming to rust pitting so it was resprayed. Alas, time really has gotten away from me and my motivation to finish the project off has gotten to the point where it makes sense to move them on. As it stands, one of the units is fully built and working, though there are grounding issues I haven't got time to sort out. Since it isn't working flawlessly - I'm going to sell it as 'repair' condition. The second unit needs to be built, it will come with the sheet metal chassis, transformers and stuffed turret boards. I collected a fair bit of information on the classic Mullard 5-10 as well as A&R transformers whilst in research mode for this project so will pass all of that on.

  3. Item: Tung Sol 6550 (Russian remake) - Matched Set Location: Blackburn South, 3130 Item Condition: Excellent, Reason for selling: No longer needed, sold tube amp Price: $120 + postage...sale pending Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, PayPal, DD Extra Info: Bought as a matched set (IP:47 and Gm: 6,300) from Amp Tubes. Used it to test on a Conrad Johnson LP66s, but have since sold the amp. These would have been used for less then 10 hours as I was I was trying to figure out a noise (which in the end was the pre amp tubes). Pick up from Blackburn South 3130 or post at buyers expense.
  4. Item: Rebuilt 1962 Denon Nippon Columbia 12ay7/6072 Valve Phono-stage, SUT & Separate Valve Rectified Power Supply Location: Wellington New Zealand Price: $4,250.00 AUD or trade for substantial power amp? Item Condition: Vintage refurbished Reason for selling: I have 2 & keeping 1 forever Payment Method: Pickup - International Delivery - Cash, Paypal, COD Extra Info: 1962 Denon Nippon Columbia Valve 12ay7/6072 Phono-stage model AP - D78A including a switchable pair of Tamura 351 moving coil step up transformers separate valve rectified power supply. This is as rare as high quality usable vintage audio equipment gets. Originally built in the early 1960's and designed for radio station broadcast use, matched with the Denon 103 moving coil cartridge (still in production today). The specs for this phono stage work with many quality cartridges including Denon, EMT, Koetsu & others, easy to match. The circuit is updated using an Audio Note design to provide the dynamics & bandwidth demanded by modern audio systems & recordings. The undeniable fact is "they knew how to wind transformers back then". High quality audio grade components used throughout including Audionote capacitors. The sound is spectacular. The definition is razor sharp but never brittle or fatiguing. Bass slam is stunning. This is the total package. I have owned many systems but never before have I honestly said the speakers disappear. In one recording the conga player was 2 x meters outside & beyond the right speaker (system dependent). A superb moving magnet valve phono-stage, combine that with a switchable pair of original 351 Tamura moving coil step transformers worth well over $500.00 & this is a giant killer. In a recent audition it spanked a new phono-stage worth more than twice the asking price. It comes with the best of the best balanced GE triple mica blackplate 12ay7/6072 tubes, also spare sets of GE greyplates & the second best a set of NOS balanced RCA 12ay7. High quality NOS Philips rectifier. I will throw in some new production tubes as well. Over $600.00 worth of tubes. Only selling as I built 2 & will be keeping the other one forever. Grab a once in a lifetime chance to own a modernized piece of audio equipment history & then settle back to hear what your record collection was supposed to sound like........ Photos:

  7. Item: AYON AUDIO HA-3 Single-Ended-Triode Headphone Amplifier Location: Sydney Price: $$$#^)) Item Condition: Mint Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup or Delivery cash/EFT on pick up Extra Info: From 6Moons: "Among direct-heated triodes -- and shy of leaving the reservation for types only the truly obsessed have even heard of, never mind listened to -- 45s are legendary and by some considered what 300Bs and 2A3s can only aspire to" Shipping Dimension: 50.00cm x 50.00cm x 30.00cm 20kg REVIEWS: https://positive-feedback.com/audio-discourse/ayon-audio-ha-3-set-headphone-amplifier-focal-utopia-headphones/ http://highfidelity.pl/@main-709&lang=en From Ayon Audio site: The HA-3 was developed for headphone lovers searching exclusively the very special music experience. It impresses with it’s Single-Ended-Triode technology taken to its respective extremes by Ayon in all their products. Selected in-house AA45 Mesh super triodes, the perhaps most perfect and best sounding low-power triode for headphone amp design, are applied in combination with special super-permalloy wound output transformers. At the HA-3 deliberately all useless gimmicks have been omitted. The HA-3 is designed without compromise in its circuitry as well as in its power conditioning; therefore, a separate top-class power supply was inevitable; on the one hand it guarantees extraordinary voltage and current stability and lowest hum. With its powerful, airy, and lively play, paired with a superb spatiality with emotional reproduction the HA-3 drives every dynamic headphone to absolutely maximum tonal performance. From treble in brilliant resolution to absolutely authentic colourful mid-range and a deep resilient bass. At the same time, it fascinates by its incredible ease, closeness and control at any kind of reproduction that is second to none Features & Design: Full-featured pure class-A tube stereo headphone amplifier Vacuum Tubes : Ayon AA45 Mesh power output tubes The choice of signal and power tubes have a significant influence on the sound and hence on the inspiration and joy of listening. This is not only the decision between good and bad tubes but finally the interaction of the different types of tubes and their combination that are used in the various Ayon amplifiers. Signal Path We believe that the simplest circuits work best together with the shortest signal path. The shorter the signal path is, the less possibility of sonic degradation from various sources, including the wire itself. Even on the circuit boards, the copper traces are kept to a very minimum length. The completely redesigned circuit board provides a more straightforward and direct approach to the signal paths. ● Logical sequenced soft-start power up for extended tube life ● Ultra short signal path ● Simplest direct circuit path for purest musical sound and high reliability ● No solid state devices in the signal path ● High current and low impedance design that operates tubes in the best areas their curves ● Automatic bias adjustment ● No followers or buffers in the signal path ● Quality parts throughout Power Supply The power supplies have been further refined with new components and enhanced AC line noise filtration. Separate power transformers, chokes and filters provide total isolation between the input and output stages which makes this a pure power source. We also use electrolytic capacitors with much larger storage capacity to make up for the loss in filtering when using resistors in lieu of inductors. ● Low noise –insulated power transformers ● Power transformer is excellent damped and RFI/EMI shielded ● Innovative power supply provides a high speed energy delivery on transients ● Choke filtered power supply ● Separate and isolated power supplies over each stage of amplification ● High current filament-regulator for pre/driver tubes ● Regulated DC filament supplies with soft start ● AC power line filter to avoid noise and hash from entering into the unit. Output Transformer The super-wide bandwidth output transformer’s major strength is that it can deliver the current in the bass, while at the same time maintaining the speed in the high frequencies, dramatically improving the square wave response of the amplifier. The effect is a much more natural and relaxed sound with much better clarity, resolution and fluidity. ● Super-wide bandwidth high performance - super permalloy output transformer ● High efficiency with low insertion loss for optimal current and voltage transfer ● Multiple tight layering and coupling for extended frequency response ● Output transformers are sealed with an anti-resonance compound material Components The type of parts used therefore must have a synergistic relationship to the circuit they are placed in. It is this relationship of which type of part to use where, that ranks our products apart from the mass. ● Selected, quality passive components used in all applications ● High speed & high quality audiophile grade coupling capacitors ● Special tube sockets with beryllium- copper spring pins, custom made by Ayon ● High quality – RCA input jack ● Special isolated - internal wiring ● Copper matrix - internal signal cable ● Gold-plated industrial grade PCB Mechanical Construction The high grade aluminum chassis impart a richer, more lustrous tonality with a cleaner background and less hash and grain. All brushed anodized anti-vibration-resonance and non-magnetic chassis’s are fully hand assembled to insure the highest level of craftsmanship. ● Improved heat ventilation chassis ● Custom-made machined control knobs ● All front & rear panel descriptions are engraved ● Chassis finish: black / black Pictures:

  13. Hi everyone! I've been reading this forum for a while and finally decided to register and create my first topic Finally finished my DIY amplifier project. I always wanted to design a tube amplifier but didn't have much time for it. This project took me about 6 months to finish. It has two power amplifiers inside: a solid state one based on STA540 and a class-A single-ended 6SN7+6V6 tube stereo amplifier. You can switch between 2 amplifiers using a knob on the front panel. The reason of having 2 amplifiers is simple: the device is used as a computer audio amplifier. Most of the time I use it to watch videos or playing games. STA540 is a high-quality power amplifier and it will be more than enough for these purposes. But when you want to enjoy some music (e.g jazz) you can simply turn on the tube amp. Such system can significantly extend tube life. I wanted to use a modern circuitry in the tube amp design. The operating point (cathode currents etc) is precisely controlled by the integrated circuits, while the audio signal only goes through the tubes and high-quality capacitors and resistors. I also used a switch mode power supply which is much smaller and more efficient than classic linear ones. In addition to that, it doesn't have this 50 Hz hum, as the operating frequency is higher than 100 kHz. I know that sometimes it can produce a high-frequency noise, so I used a comprehensive filtering of the output voltages. There is a "magic eye" tube (6E5C) on the front panel for indication, but it's just a nice looking gimmick :). I ordered PCBs in China and it took around 10 days for them to get delivered to my place. And finally, a very important thing: the amp appearance! I used brushed aluminium and jarrah wood as the main materials. The CNC routing was done here, in Australia. I gradually sanded the wood (the last sandpaper was 400 grit) and covered it with 4 layers of transparent lacquer to enhance the natural colour and to protect the wood. I also added copper pipes for steampunk appearance :). The labels on the rear panel were laser engraved. Overall, I'm very happy with this amp and I'm glad that I found some time to finish it. Both amps sound great. I prefer to use the tube one to listen jazz or blues while the solid state one is better (IMHO) for more bassy genres.
  14. 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:
  15. Items: A3 Dual Mono Integrated Amplifier A3.2 Upsampling 24bit CD Player X-PSU (with 3 x power cables) X10-D Tube Buffer X-24K DAC X-CAN v2 Tube Headphone Amplifier X-PRE Pre-Amplifier X-LPS Phono Pre Amplifier Location: Belrose (Northern beaches, Sydney) Price: $6000 Item Condition: Used / excellent visually and all components working perfectly (except amp remote volume control) Reason for selling: Downsizing to a streaming set-up Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Sadly, it’s time to let go of my much-beloved Musical Fidelity system. It’s time to down-size to a streaming system (Kef LS50W) Comes with remotes and some cables (the amp remote’s volume buttons don’t work; it seems to be a common issue with this model remote) All components are in excellent condition and are in perfect working order. I’m hoping to find a good home for the complete system as shown. Actually, the main reason to sell is despite her liking the awesome sound, my wife hates the look of it all. Will post/courier at buyer’s expense. Pictures:
  16. Item: Pro-Ject Audio Tube Box S Phono Preamplifier Location: Canberra, ACT, 2614 Price: $350 + postage if required Item Condition: Like new Reason for selling: Simplifying my setup/cash for other items Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Bank Transfer Extra Info: Purchased from Audio Trends in August 2016 for $490.

  17. Item: A pair of CONSONANCE CYBER 845 MONO BLOCKS Location: Ascot Vale, Victoria Price: $1800 (Firm) Item Condition: Excellent - These amps have been lovingly cared for however there are a couple of slight dents/marks on the side edge as shown in the pictures. They look far worse in the pictures than in the flesh and must have happened during our recent move as I had not noticed them until I looked them over for this add. Reason for selling: I am told that these are too big for our lounge room. Payment Method: Pickup only - Cash, Paypal, COD Extra Info: Over the years I cycled through a few amps, valve and solid state before finally settling on these. During this journey I found that I was very drawn to the Single ended valve sound, however, found their low power limiting. The Consonance 845's where the solution for me with class A, single ended, 28 watts. I currently have Shuguang 845B, National Electronics 5687 and Philips SQE88CC tubes fitted to the amp and will include the additional valves, shown in the pictures, in the sale. Due to the size & weight, (approx 30Kg each), a local pick-up only. Please note that I am happy to audition for serious buyers but I am firm on the price. these are outstanding amplifiers which present great value at this price. If I can't get this price my wife will just have to put up with them in our lounge Pictures:
  18. Item: Woodside SC26MC/MM tube preamp Location: Potts Point, NSW 2011 Price: $ 1200 Item Condition: 8/10 Reason for selling: I bought a new integrated amp Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: The preamp has been regularly serviced and recently checked by Trevor Wilson (02)9589 1001 from RAGE AUDIO in Oyster Bay (Sydney). Woodside Electronics was born out of the legendary Radford Electronics company of Bristol, England. Woodside was created by John Widgery, who apprenticed with Radford Electronics and designed many of their products, when Arthur Radford retired. These units sold well in Europe in the late 1990s and early 2000s as they were built with excellent quality and with a fair price tag. It has a moving coil phono preamp included and it sounds beautiful: SC26's sonics combine a midrange richness with a good dynamic range. They were the top of the Woodside preamp range. They produce a spacious, three-dimensional soundstage. I bought the preamp in Germany in the 90s and am now selling it as I bought an integrated amplifier. further reference: https://www.stereophile.com/tubepreamps/295wood/index.html RRP US$ 3495 Pictures:
