This is very rare ! a Meridian 556 Dual mono, stereo power amp in excellent condition (see pics) and comes with all original packaging so can ship any where in australia

 

 

full info from meridian here,

as it describes,

"Meridian 556

The 556 is an outstanding 100W stereo amplifier which provides exquisite results with even the most demanding loudspeakers.

The Meridian 556 houses two powerful amplifiers in a dual mono construction. The over-specified output stage uses 8 high-power transistors. These, combined with a low-noise 800VA toroidal transformer, permit this amplifier to deliver massive currents, ensuring no loss of performance even into loads that dip below 2 ohms. The power delivery of this amplifier makes it ideal for driving difficult loudspeaker loads.

The 556 provides unbalanced inputs as well as twin outputs for bi-wiring.

The topology of 556 is very much in the Meridian tradition. A high-precision, fast, DC-precise input stage is combined with fully complementary amplification and output stages. The 556 also uses Meridian’s well tried self-adjusting bias and error-correction output circuitry.

As you may expect, the 556 is fully protected against DC and thermal overload."

 

a couple of videos showing the amp in action in the meridian system (sorry both disc player and pre amp have sold)

Not that really does justice of what system actually sounds like in person. But I have been asked this question. What does it sound like ?  Best I can describe it is the meridian sound via these pieces is Clean, clear completely lack any colouration/distortion. Yet is quite analog in sound ie not digital in any ways, quite natural sounding. Quite dynamic and with good wide sound stage width and depth :)

 

lease note to facilitate an easy sale, I am quite happy for a local melbourne buyer to come pick this up and pay cash on pickup, alternatively no matter where you are in Australia I am willing to ship this to you at cost (please ask me for a quote). I take EXTREME care in packaging and will make sure it is packed well to get to you safely and also insured to its value for peace of mind.

let me know if interested

      Extra Info: Bought a few years ago (5 or 6), unfortunately can't find receipt so I can't tell you who from. The great thing about it is that with the purchase of other legs/supports it could be totally re-configured.

      Item: Naim NDX2 Network Streamer (and DAC)
      Location: Sydney 2010
      Price: $6900 (rrp $9800)
      Item Condition:  As new
      Reason for selling: Upgrading
      Payment Method: Pickup or shipping - Cash, Paypal, EFT prior Only
      Extra Info:
      This fantastic (some say unfortunate) hobby has me upgrading to it's bigger brother the ND555, so it's time to send the NDX2 to a new loving owner. 
       
      Extremely rare to see on the secondary market - it's only 7 months old and of course comes with all original cables, packaging, remote etc with everything in perfect condition.
      This is a totally brilliant streamer/player/dac (see below reviews) - I just can't sing it's praises highly enough, the wonderful music that it produces is so close to analogue that it's hard to tell the difference.
      Purchased only 6 weeks ago as a near new, not even run-in demo unit - Serial number: 449XXX
       
      The NDX2 is future upgradable with two different power supply upgrades available, but does not require other Naim equipment to show it's best, as per review below.
       
      I have added 2 x images from the Naim website, primarily to show the wide range of possible inputs and outputs, as I didn't get great ones myself - https://www.naimaudio.com/product/ndx-2
       
      Buyer will of course pay shipping and paypal fees if required
       
      There are many 5 star Reviews:

      " The level of transparency available is extraordinary, Hendrix’s ‘Wait Until Tomorrow’ (Axis: Bold as Love, Track) is as fast as you like but perfectly balanced albeit slightly polished in the way that remastering tends to sound, that said I doubt the vinyl has so much low end power. Nils Frahm’s All Melodyfrom last year is a recording that keeps on giving, the Naim delivers what sounds like near mixing desk clarity with superb scale and multiple layers of sound from this gloriously woody sounding release..."
