SOLD: FS: Early NAD 300 Stereo Receiver

Recommended Posts

Item: NAD 300 Stereo Receiver
Location: Brunswick East
Price: 850
Item Condition: 9/10: the unit has been incredibly well cared for, and restored last year.
Reason for selling: Moving to a more expensive pre/power combo for my JBL's.
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
Extra Info:

Quite a rare, top-of-the-line NAD receiver from their first production line in 1975 (manufactured until 1978). 
A pretty incredible piece of audio equipment. In my opinion in testing proved superior sonically to similar rated receivers of that period. Tested it against both a Marantz 2275, and Pioneer SX-850 (both were restored units), and the NAD 300 sounded more dynamic, had a better low-end and overall clearer sound. 
Rated at 85WPC, but my technician tested it close to 100WPC.
 

Cosmetically:
Beautiful original condition, very few signs of use, extremely well cared for. 
Metal external cover has been professional repainted. 

 

Mechanically:
This receiver has had a full restoration. The unit was purchased personally from Carl over at Tivoli Hi-Fi, in 2017. Carl being their retired turntable specialist, with over 40 years experience in servicing audio equipment.
I'd estimate $200-300 worth of servicing work has been undertaken.

- All the degrading capacitors have been replaced with high quality modern components. All the replacements chosen were carefully selected for optimal sonic performance.
- Radio FM/AM updated to allow the use of modern TV input, taking advantage of home TV antenna input for vastly superior coverage.
- All switches and controls have been de-oxidised, and recoated with contact conditioner. So everything operates smoothly and quietly. 
*NOTE* Once powered up, for 3-4 seconds if the volume knob is altered there is some static heard, but it then disappears and works flawlessly forever onwards. The issue was too minor to ever spend money/time investing, just being as transparent as possible in my post. 
- Modern banana-plug speaker connections installed.
- Idle current and offset calibrated to spec.
- All new LEDs indicator lights. 

The chassis all solid metal and aluminium, well built and weighs 22kg.
Pickup from Brunswick East, or freight can be considered.

I've sought an expert opinion and reconsidered postage, the item can be double boxed and shipped with quality materials for $40 to Sydney via E-Go.

      Item: Pioneer SX-5590 a.k.a. SX-1250
      Location: Mooroolbark
      Price: $1750 
      Item Condition: used 7/10
      Reason for selling: not being used
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:
       
      decided to move on my Pioneer SX-5590. Exactly the same as the SX-1250 but with the black faceplate and box.
       
      Cosmetically amp would be a 7/10 with a few marks here and there. Please refer to photos for better description.
       
      Everything works as it should with all lights working.
       
      Amp is in original condition (other than the volume knob) and still sounds very strong. I have been using it with my Pioneer DSS-7 speakers and the volume doesn't go past 4 out of 10
       
      Happy to demo for those interested and also have the facility to package if needed. Amp weights about 30kg shipping would be around $70-$90 Aust wide

      From the Denon website: The new leader of the Denon AVR range comes with 190 W x 9 channel power amplifier and an 11.2 channel processing capability with DSX and dts NeoX. The full network functionality including a 4 port hub gives access to unlimited digital content. The DLNA1.5 certified receiver supports AirPlay as well as last.fm and Spotify. The ability for 4k video processing and the triple HDMI outputs goes in line with high quality i/p scaling. The unique Denon Link HD function, guaranteeing the ultimate in entertainment pleasure works in combination with AL32 Processing Multi Channel and DDSC-HD32 for higher resolution audio playback.

All is safely protected by a nicely design solid aluminum front panel with trap door hiding additional connectors and control buttons.

      Item: Pioneer SC-LX87 9.2 Channel AV Receiver
      Location: Brooklyn, VIC
      Price: $1,500 ono
      Item Condition: As new
      Reason for selling: Need something with Atmos
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal
      Extra Info: Top of the line receiver from 2014 and still matches it with current offerings in performance. The only thing missing is Dolby Atmos, which is my only reason for sale.

      Cost was around $4,000 when new. I'm not sure what it's worth now, but I've priced it based on what others are asking for similar models. It is in immaculate condition and includes all original accessories and packaging materials.
       
      Pickup preferred from Brooklyn, however I'm happy to ship it. It's a big, heavy box so it won't be cheap. Let me know your postcode if you'd like an estimate.

      Item is currently boxed up, so please see images online. The unit is as new. I'd be more than happy to open it up for inspection before purchase.
