SOLD: FS: Crown CTs 600 power amplifier

Recommended Posts

Item: Crown CTs 600 power amplifier
Location: Newport, VIC
Price: $200
Item Condition: Excellent
Reason for selling: Surplus to my needs
Payment Method: Cash at pickup
Extra Info: This is a 2-channel power amplifier housed in a 2-space rackmount frame, offering power levels and features meant to serve fixed installation sound applications. This amplifier is notable for a completely independent array of switches and indicators for each channel, including high and low impedance operation, input sensitivity, high pass filters, and an advanced level of well-designed overload protection circuitry. This unit includes a PIP-LITE module for networked controlling via either HiQnet and System Architect or TCP/IQ and IQwic.


Here are some specs:

  • High-power, 2-channel, 2U rackmount amplifier for installed sound applications
  • Legendary Crown class-I (BCA) and AB+B output topologies offer the best in amplifier reliability
  • Switching power supply lowers overall amplifier weight
  • Selectable "Constant-Voltage" or low-impedance (4/8 ohm) operation
  • Independently selectable Input Sensitivity switching per channel
  • Rear panel Programmable Input Processor (PIP2) connector accepts accessory expansion modules for specific custom installation requirements
  • Thermal Level Control (TLC) circuitry protects amplifier from overheating; engages input compressor, dynamically reducing input gain when individual channels overheat
  • Junction Temperature Simulation (JTS) quick-activation circuitry limits drive level of output devices to tolerable range if excess power is required; protects output transistors without shutting down channel
  • Continuously variable fan cooling; venting with front-to-rear forced airflow
  • Removable balanced terminal block input connectors with "Y" switch
  • Switchable high pass filter per channel, eliminates step down transformer saturation in distributed systems
  • Complete array of front panel function and warning indicator LEDs for each channel
  • Complete array of rear panel function and filter switches
  • Power on indicator flashes when AC mains are under or over voltage
  • Advanced protection circuitry covers shorted outputs, DC, mismatched loads, overheating, high frequency overloads, voltage fluctuation and internal faults.


Audition can be organised in Newport, VIC, 3015.

      Item: Bryston B135 SST² Integrated Amplifier 
      Location: Melbourne
      Price: $4,299
      Item Condition: Mint
      Reason for selling: Interested in trying something new
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:
      I'm considering selling this to try something different.
      Putting feelers out there to gauge interest.
      The unit is absolutely mint, black finish, and comes with the optional remote control (which lists for $699 alone!). It was purchased new by me in May 2015. 
      The amplifier retails for $7k new so this is a bargain.
      I still have all the packaging so COULD ship, but would prefer local pickup if possible.
      I'm be interested in a trade for a NAIM Supernait 2, or one of the NAIM Uniti Novas, but that's about all.
      Some info
      Brochure is here: http://www.bryston.com/PDF/brochures/B135_BROCHURE.pdf
      135W into 8 Ohms (180W into 4 Ohms) Over 30,000 MFD of filter capacitance per channel Three ultra-low-noise power transformers Separate ground paths for Digital and Analog Gold plated switch, contacts, and connectors Pre-out/main in connectors Computer modelled heat-sink. Convection cooled and housed in a fully aluminium chassis Headphone jack 20 year warranty (16 years to go!)  
      This is an incredible amplifier, with a low noise floor and pitch black background. It excels in bringing out detail in recordings without (somehow!) highighting flaws in production. 
      Some reviews:

      Item: Yamaha A-S700 Amplifier 
      Location: Kew Area, Victoria 
      Price: no longer for sale
      Item Condition: good
      Reason for selling: surplus 
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info: selling my trusty A-S700 
      It has a few light swirl marks on the case and light scratch on side of case, the face plate is clean
      Phono section sounds better than my Schiit Mani. Pure Direct mode sounds excellent
      I've put lower profile feet on it which in my opinion looks way better than the tall black plastic originals. The original feet will be included. 
      Comes with remote, which has a few wear marks on it

      Item: Yamaha A-S1000 amplifier 
      Location: Kew, Victoria 
      Price: 950
      Item Condition: excellent near mint
      Reason for selling: changing things up
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info: selling my mint
      Yamaha A-S1000 with remote, no scratches or marks anywhere.
      Incredible build quality, punchy warm clear sound, buckets of power, stellar MM/MC phono stage, built like a tank at 23kg. This has been used in rotation usually in summer mainly when my tube amp seems like the wrong choice, or when I want a punchier more detailed change over the tube sound. 
      The tone controls are in another league to most implementations I've heard. I never hear any degradation when I do use them. 
      The side wood panels can be purchased in dark brown and black from Yamaha for $100 btw
      I do have the manuals but no box. 
      Would prefer to have this local collection

      Item: Pass Labs HPA 1 Headphone Amplifier Ex Display
      Location: Leichhardt 
      Price: $3,500.00
      Item Condition: Ex display 
      Reason for selling: Clearance 
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Direct deposit, Credit card on pick up, 
      Extra Info: Can freight at extra cost 
      The HPA-1 headphone amplifier was designed ground-up to become what we believe is one of the very best sounding headphone amplifiers available today. With low feedback, wide bandwidth and a direct coupled MOSFET output stage, this musical instrument drives even the most difficult headphone loads with ease, power, and grace. The HPA-1 also functions as a line-level preamplifier that sonically rivals much higher-priced competition. The measured performance is superb and the sound even better.
      Comes with original box.
