  1. Further information: https://bottlehead.com/product/crack-1-1-otl-headphone-amplifier-kit/ Shipping additional at around $20 within Australia.

  2. Further information: So here for sale is one of my beloved MiniMax headphone amps. I loved my first one so much, that I decided to build another. Turns out, I only need one Built with high quality parts throughout, and a great design over all. Comes with tubes, as a 24AC power supply (much nicer than a DC wall wart). You can learn more about this amp here: http://www.diyforums.org/MiniMAX/MiniMAXoverview.php I've not included an electrical disclaimer for this item, as it's powered by an external, off the shelf power supply.

  3. Further information: Funcional, recently serviced by a electronics technician, in excellent condition. Original valves still going strong. This is a musical non-fatiguing amplifier with a typical Fisher sound. The volume knob has been replaced, the original is available, just missing the golden cap (easy to fix one). Comes with banana plug adaptors. Normal small scratches.

  4. Further information: I purchased this unit second hand. THe previous owner stated it had not been used and given the condition it arrived in I tend to believe them. Since then I have put about 20 hours on it. The effect on the audio is a pleasant one, however I primarily listen to headphones and I have headphones that I already love the sound of with a neutral amp, so I do not need to add anything extra to the mix. I did try it with my desktop speakers and I did enjoy it. Particularly being able to increase the low bass and play with the reverb/crossfeed. That said I simply do not listen with speakers enough to justify it. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  5. For sale is an immaculate Richter Mystique integrated valve amplifier. I purchased this as the original owner <5 years ago. My guesstimate would be approximately 500 hours listening in that time. I have not opened the cage to dust/tube roll etc. Protective plastic film is still in place on acrylic "windshield". This machine has performed flawlessly but I feel it is not at its best driving my current speakers of choice (Duntech Statesmen). In my view, upper and midrange BEAUTIFULLY rendered, bass perhaps lacking the same degree of authority. I have not got the original box, but you can be assured it will be super-protected should shipping (shared cost) be required. Price reduction to sub-$1000!! Further information: Max output power: 30W x 2 Frequency Response: 20 - 20KHz (+/- 1dB) Distortion: < 1% Signal to noise ratio: > 89dB Input sensitivity: 225mV Output Impedance: 4ohm / 8ohm Input channel: Line1, Line2, Line3, AUX, USB/DAC Output impedance: 4Ω/8Ω Headphone output: 6.5mm Dimensions (WxHxD): 380mm x 160mm x 300mm Weight: 13kgs Tube: 6l6G x 4, 12AX7 x 2, 12AU7 x 2 Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  6. Ascension (Adelaide Speakers)...........Made In Australia Valve series prototype V1062AQTL 2-way Efficient Floor Standing Speakers Purchased direct from Adelaide speakers on 25th January 2020 http://www.adelaidespeakers.com/valve.html Local Pickup Only - No Postage Option Is Offered Due To Size/Weight. Sorry. Condition: Used - But Near New. Can still smell the fresh American Oak! Purchased these from Edward who was a great help in selection of the these speakers. But they are a little oversized in the smaller room. I think they would suit a larger room where they can breath and do their magic down to 32hz. No real need for a sub, but as usual, a sub is best! I have been running these on a Yamaha HTR 2071 (cheap) and also Cambridge Audio integrated amp. AXR100. As they are easy to power, both work a treat, so you don't need expensive high powered equipment to run these. I have never used a valve amp, but these are of course suitable for that duty also. Details: Valve series prototype V1062AQTL 2-way efficient floor standing speakers Size: 1020H x 300W x 225D 8 ohms 140wrms 94dB 1W/1M (easy to power with receivers 5.1 etc.) 32Hz - 30kHz /- 2db with short hybrid transmission line bass load and smooth series crossover design, in American Oak veneered cabinet. Weight 23kg each 10 inch woofer 2 Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.

  8. Item: Vincent Audio SV237. Black. Location: Melbourne Price: $1250 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Raising capital for domestic transducer development. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD Only Extra Info: Purchased 2nd hand last year, this amp has seen very little use. I have the original box, and am happy to post Aust-wide.

  10. Item: Bottlehead Crack with Speedball Upgrade and Tube Upgrades (Chatham 6080WA, Brimar CV4003) Location: Melbourne, VIC. Will ship ($20AUD Australia wide) Price: $700 ono Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Upgraded to Crackatwoa Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This headphone valve amp was built by myself in December 2018. I've used it up until November 2019 when I upgraded to a Crackatwoa. An excellent amp for high impedance cans such as Sennheiser HD650/600, Beyerdynamics and ZMFs. This will come with the stock tubes (RCA 6080s and GE input tubes) as well as tube upgrades for both the output and inputs: Chatham 6080WA and Brimar CV4003, all NOS when purchased. This combination of tubes gives a punchy and musical sound with a little bit of sparkle, yet losing none of the rich mids that valve amps are known for. The Chatham 6080WAs are sonic equivalents of Tungsol 6080s, which are ridiculously hard to find and are one of the most popular tubes used on Bottlehead Cracks. The finish is a Scandinavian Oil with a spray painted dark grey metal top plate. (There are some imperfections in the spray painting). I have other tubes that can be sold either together with the amp or separately (not included in the purchase price). All NOS and used briefly for testing. GEC 6080 - +$200 - a much warmer, sweeter tube than the Chatham 6080WA Tungsol 5998 +$200 - enough said... Tungsol 6080 +$100 - punchy, musical Photos:
  11. Item: Shanling MC-30 Music Centre (Valves) Location: Perth, can ship Price: $625 or $650 with Logitech Harmony 650 universal remote Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Too much gear Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Shipped - Direct Deposit Extra Info: I am the second owner of this locally delivered 240V unit and I am sure I will regret selling this later. Ask anyone who has ever come across one of these and they will back me up with how they were blown away by this little unit. The build quality is excellent, thick aluminium body and heavy transformers. The design is well thought out with the feet all featuring levelling. The sound it makes is lush and although it seems like it would not create a generous amount of sound at 3W (Class A) I can fill a lounge room with gorgeous sound without even going half way on the dial. This is without even using easy to drive speakers, I had used Quad 11L and Dynaudio Contour 1.32E which are both only about 86dB. It has a pre-out should you want more power, but I tried using a Quad 909 and preferred it direct. The unit actually provided more bass on its own. Feature wise, CD player, FM and AM radio, 3.5mm input and RCA input which should cover everything you could want. The original owner lost the remote but the unit can be operated from the controls on the device itself. Volume adjustment is a bit of a chore like that though so I picked up a Logitech universal unit which I can include for an extra $25 (cost $70). A common issue with many Shanling CD players is the occasion pause during cd playback but this is occurs only very occasionally and lasts about 1 - 2 seconds before resuming. The MC-30 has been otherwise faultless. I have the original double box so can ship at buyers risk if desired but note it is fairly heavy. Great chance to get into valves or Class A amplification without too much outlay. Questions welcome and I will try to answer best I can. Donation on sale to SNA. Please look at all the glowey bits in the pictures!

  12. Item: Plessis Audio Model A Valve Amp Location: Sandgate, North Brisbane Price: $2200.00 - Prepared to Neg. Item Condition: Excellent (New Cond.) Reason for selling: It was passed on to me by my Dad, and being sitting in a Box for a while. (Have two other Amps) Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD, / Could also post at Buyers expense Extra Info: Was originally purchased from Len Wallis in Sydney by my farther who used it in his office as a small setup, I inherited it when he passed. Have another Valve Amp (Earle Weston) and a MF, this is just sitting in a box for the last few years seems rather a waste. The current/ original valves have only 135 hours on them. I've just unboxed it and integrated it into my system to test and sounds great. One of the other members (Sir Triode) here did a review of it here back in Feb 2017 (Link below), it goes by the name of a Classic. Whether Plessis rebadged it or Classic did who knows, in any case is sounds excellent. Can operate in both linear mode (40W) or Triode mode (20W) with a switch on the back of the Amp. It has a Bias Adjustment System via 4 dip switches and a dial. Has an Elapsed Time Meter to indicate how long the valves have been in use for. Specifications: See image of Specifcations from Manual.

  13. 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.
  14. I was searching for a valve preamplifier to match with my McIntosh 240. Recently found this odd looking unit with someone I know . He was using it only very occasionally and was happy to sell it. Anyway I decided to give it a try. Seller said its a Trevor Lees Audio valve preamplifer. Unfortunately he don't have much detail info about this unit. - There are only very few switches on the front panel without any labels ( Separate volume controls for left and right channel & two switches with unknown functionality) - It seems like there are four AUX inputs and one Phono input. - Caps I could see are Sprague, Seimens, Wonder Cap (Ultima series with Danor). - Valves from right to left - Zaerix ECC88, Sylvania 6SL7, Zaerix 6DJ8, Zaerix 6DJ8, Zaerix 6DJ8. - Not sure which make is the volume pot. - It has got a separate power supply unit ( Power supply unit is a bit noisy when switched on ). Anyone else here using the same preamplifier (Will be helpful for me to gather more info on this) ? Pictures I tried connecting it to my McIntosh 240 and it sounds good. I'm sure it has got a lot of space for further improvement. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
  15. Item: Audio Research VSi60 Location: Richmond,. VIC 3121 Price: $3,250 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Cashflow issues with my business Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Extra Info: The amp was bought from Carlton Audio two years ago, has been used sparingly since in my (design) studio. I have no idea how many hours are on the tubes unfortunately, but once it's warmed up it's the sweetest thing ever, as you'll know if you know Audio Research. Comes with all its boxing, manuals and the rest, and I'll throw in a pair of Chord interconnects to go with it for a quick sale. I wouldn't be letting this go if I didn't have to - breaks my damn heart - nor at this price if I didn't need a quick sale.
