these look interested, how do they sound ?

 

and curious as to why they are from 35k down below 5k, not in a negative way, in a curious way.

 

if it is not an appropriate question in a sale, please let me know and i will delete it  🙂

Firstly they sound great - certainly way, way better than you could expect for the asking price.

The price is mostly due to the fact that Meridian tends to be a closed system. For example these speakers also include the amplification and DAC's. Most people playing in this space already have amps, DAC's and cables that they are fond of. Also while Meridian speakers can be used in environments other than their own they work best when used with other Meridian components. The simplest way to achieve this with these speakers would be to also incorporate a Meridian 218 - or to source suitable S/Hand Meridian components.

Having said that these are still a bargain waiting for the right owner.

Thank you for the info, i have just been googling and reading lots on them for the past hour.

 

From what I have read and learned they will definitely appeal to someone who would like a turn key solution with not many cables to plug in and worry about.

 

Always great to see and learn about different products, i never knew they existed until today (awesome) ALWTS

      Item Condition: Excellent Shipping Options: Pickup is available,Audition is not available, but in-person pickup can be arranged with limited personal contact,I can ship this item Suburb or Town: Sunbury State: Victoria Payment Method: EFT, Cash on pickup, PayPal (+fee) Reason for selling: Need more power Up for sale is the legendary The Fisher X-100A tube integrated. Just before I bought it, the previous owner had it fully serviced and refurbished by a qualified veteran tube tech who brought it up to its original factory specs (I have personally spoken to the tech and verified that he indeed serviced the amp. Happy to provide details to any potential buyers.) As a result, its is in great working condition and needs no work. All controls and knobs are original and they operate with zero noise or crackling. Amp itself if dead silent when no music playing even right up to the speakers.
       
      I bought it hoping to get a high sensitive tube friendly speakers but that plan did not work out due to lack of funds. So need to sell this on unfortunately as its practically not best suited to my Lenehan MLT3 speakers that seem to like powerful amp. Although, its only rated at 17w + 17w, it could still drive my Lenehan MLT3 speakers to decent volume levels without any issues and I do use it once in a while.

      Cosmetically, its in very good condition given that it is a 60 years old piece! Functionally, it operates perfectly. 

      Currently has quad of JJ EL84 tubes in power stage, and a mix of JJ and new issue Mullard and some NOS in pre stage.
       
      Pick up preferred due to delicate nature of the amp. But I am happy to pack it up really well if buyer arranges their own shipping at their cost and risk.
       
      Any questions, please feel free to ask! Cheers.

Just shy of a metre.
       
      There is some confusion as to how they need to be soldered.  This is how I was told to solder the RCA connectors to the cable:
       
       
        The way to wire the Gotham GAC-4   Shield on one end to ground of amp or line amp depend on which one goes to earth of the main power point   the other side of shield is not soldered to the RCA plug (if you have, you will lose high frequencies)   Red and pink goes to the center of RCA plugs (note: they are not twisted pair internally)   ivory & white (or yellow & white) depend on which batch of manufacturered cable goes to the shield ground on one end of the RCA plug   ivory & white (or yello & white) to the other end of the RCA plug but without the shield of the Gotham cable.     Photos:

      Item Condition: Excellent Shipping Options: Pickup is available,Audition is not available, but in-person pickup can be arranged with limited personal contact,I can ship this item Suburb or Town: Perth State: Western Australia Payment Method: Paypal, cash, EFT Reason for selling: No use - need Item: SOtM dCBL-U2-Cp UPOCC Copper USB Cable 1M
       
      1 Metre Length, Standard USB A-B
      RRP 600 US - new model 700
       dCBL-U2 is a specially designed USB cable tuned based on PC which installed  tX-USB or tX-USBexp, SATA filter, FAN filter and eABS-100 to maximize the best performance of USB audio devices. Since such this specialized setting is beyond the limits of normal PC audio, the result of dCBL-U2 brings the sonic difference between the general USB cables even though in a very brief moment.
      The dCBL-U2 is more open, wider and dynamic sound than its predecessor and it has its own unique beauty and elegance with detailed and delicacy sound. In addition, it also present the mid-high range as well as the deep base range in exact detail without any distortion.
       As for the order options, UPOCC Copper wire which is calm and tidy or UPOCC Silver wire which is more open, wide and delicate relatively are available, and you should choose whether the USB power signal needed or not. The length for he standard cable is 1M, and also you can choose 0.5M, or 1.5M or 2M.
       If you choose dCBL-U2 as an option for not including power signal, this option can block the noise entirely from the USB power signal, so it has an advantage in sound. But this option (not including power signal) can not be used with some USB audio devices which should be powered by USB port, so in this case, you should make an option for including power signal. On the other hand, we recommend to use the cable options for not including power signal with SOtM products since SOtM’s all products don’t get powered by USB port.
       If you connect dCBL-U2 to your USB audio systems you will be able to experience the ultimate PC audio sound beyond the limit of CD.

      Item Condition: Good Shipping Options: Pickup is available,Audition is not available, but in-person pickup can be arranged with limited personal contact,I can ship this item Suburb or Town: Altona Meadows State: Victoria Payment Method: Cash or EFT Reason for selling: NLR Jamo 7.7 / D590 Speakers
      These are probably the most famous of the Jamo speakers. They made these for about 20 years before they stopped. Then they started making them again as a 50th anniversary edition.
      Still one of the best speakers Jamo ever made.
      Each speaker has a curved lute shape.
      1 x 1" tweeter
      2 x 5" mids
      1 x 8" woofer (down firing underneath)
      These are the 'beech' finish, which is the lighter wood colour.
      In excellent condition other than some damage to the bottom of one of the plinths (see photo).
       
      There are very big and heavy so pickup only please from 3028

      Item Condition: Excellent 9.5-10 Shipping Options: Pickup is available,Audition is not available, but in-person pickup can be arranged with limited personal contact,I can ship this item Suburb or Town: Perth State: Western Australia Payment Method: Paypal, cash, EFT Reason for selling: Change of system Stunning Swiss made top the line reference pre amp by the Rollys Royce of HiFi.   Just succeeded as current top of the range pre amp.- just minor updates to the next gen and at a serious price rise.
       
      RRP is 42000 plus currently.  3 years 9 months old. Less than half new price.
       
      Unbelievable high end pre amp built by Swiss masters Goldmund. Its 2 box, 7 in out pre with remote and seperate power supply .
       
      Have both original boxes, manual and remote.
       
      In a very undecided stage of my audio career so considering budgets, quality of gear , requirements.  Might go without a pre for a while or try tube options. This has been without a doubt the best pre I have owned including my Gryphon Sonata
       
       
      Goldmund, the Rolls Royce or Bentley of the Hi-Fi world have announced their Mimesis 37S high-end analog preamplifier with a promised even lower noise and distortion. In the high-end Hi-Fi world, few are more respected than the swiss Goldmund name.
      So when you're looking for the best in audio reproduction, the Mimesis 37S (Signature) is a high-end analog preamplifier that benefits from many of the technologies used in their most prestigious and refined model, the Mimesis 22H.
       
      he Goldmund Mimesis 37 Signature is the latest Goldmund high-end line analog preamplifier. It uses the ultra-low noise analog technology initially developed for the Mimesis 22S. The efficiency of this technology has been proven over many years and enables the Mimesis 37s to produce the cleanest sound one can dream of. The Mimesis 37S uses a separate power supply unit with 4 separate circuits and 2 successive stages of power regulation. It benefits from a full dual-mono construction with processor-driven linked attenuators. It is delivered with 7 inputs -5 unbalanced and 2 balanced- 1 unbalanced tape loops, and balanced and unbalanced analog output circuits.

       

      Inputs: Input impedance: 39 kOhmsMaximum input level (balanced) : 9.6 V RMS Maximum input level (unbalanced): 4.8 V RMS
      Outputs: Output impedance: 50 OhmsMaximum output level (balanced) : 19.2 V RMS Maximum output level (unbalanced): 9.6 V RMS
      Noise: Signal-to noise ratio on line input: > 120 dB (0.01 Hz - 10 Mhz)Weighted ASA A: > 130 dB
      Distortion: With 1 V rms output level, 80 KHz measurement bandwidth, 600 ohms termination impedance
      Frequency Response: +/- 0 dB, 20 - 20 kHz+/- 3 dB, 0.2 – 900kHz
      Power Supply: Nominal line voltage: 117 or 234 VInput voltage range: +/- 10 % Maximum power consumption: 70 W
      Dimensions (W x D x H): Preamplifier: 440 x 380 x 90 mmPower Supply: 440 x 280 x 60 mm
      Weight: 15 kg  
       
      Utilising a full Dual-Mono construction with processor-driven linked attenuators, the Mimesis 37S uses a separate power supply unit (dual chassis) for optimum noise reduction and 2 successive stages of power regulation with 4 separate circuits.
       
      It is delivered with 7 inputs - 5 unbalanced and 2 balanced and 1 unbalanced tape loop – and has balanced and unbalanced analog output circuits.
       
      The Mimesis 37S is also protected against ground loops and AC line drops or interruption which will trigger automatic muting.
       
      The Mimesis 37S is a reference in analog preamplification if the 22H is anything to go by, will possibly remain without equivalent in audio circuit quality and sound for the years to come.
       
      When only the best will do, the Goldmund Mimesis 37S Analog Preamplifier is available now for $35,000 RRP. as of June 2015 release. now about 40k.
       
      MIMESIS 37S NEXTGEN
      Stereo Preamplifier
            The Goldmund Mimesis 37S NextGen is a high-end analog stereo preamplifier. Its ability to lower noise and distortion, using multiple parallel preamplifier stages is purely incredible. A Full Dual-Mono construction with processor-driven linked attenuators, the Mimesis 37S NextGen uses a separate power supply unit for optimum noise reduction and 2 successive stages of power regulation with 4 separate circuits. The Mimesis 37S NextGen is delivered with 7 inputs – 5 unbalanced and 2 balanced analog inputs – and 3 outputs – 1 unbalanced tape loop and 1 balanced and 1 unbalanced analog output per channel. It is also protected against ground loops and AC line drops or interruption will trigger and automatic muting. 

      The Mimesis 37S NextGen is a reference in analog preamplification and will remain without equivalent in audio circuit quality and sound for the years to come.   SPECIFICATIINPUTS Input impedance: 39 kOhms.
