SOLD: FS: PRIMARE A30.7 POWER AMP

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Item: Primare A30.7 Power Amp
Location: Melbourne Metro
Price: $1950
Item Condition: Excellent
Reason for selling: Upgraded.
Payment Method: Cash - COD Only

Colour: Titanium Silver
Extra Info: 
Comes with original box, manual & cables. Please note that interconnects are not included. Power ratings: 7 channels at 150w at 8 ohms and 300w at 4 ohms all channels driven. It can be used with both balanced or unbalanced cables, but it is a fully balanced design so best results will be obtained using balanced cables. The A30.7 is still a current model and RRP new is $3999. It is in excellent condition and working order. It also only draws a very miserly 650W at full power and won't send your electricity meter into free fall. Unit was purchased new from Whatmoughs. What you see in the photos below is what you get. No tricks, no snake oil, no gimmicks.

Of the two items I've listed this is probably the harder to let go. Provides a wonderful open and airy soundstage. Things like George Benson's Gimme the night and Tom Petty's Don't come around here no more fill the room front-to-back, top-to-bottom and side-to-side.

I've been keeping an eye out for either one of these (or the 30.5, due to cheaper price and already have two A32s for the rest), an Elektra Theatre HD2 or - the end game (for me) the Denon POA-A1HD. I can't justify anything bigger or higher end. 

 

Is the top black or silver as well? How deep is the unit? It'll look awesome next to the silvre A32s and the R32 pre :)

Curious to know what you upgraded to!

Sorry I've been tardy @Zardoz. Yeah it would go nice with your A32s. It's nowhere as deep as those at around 385mm. It has the black top and sides. If your system is anything like mine then you've probably got a tangle of cables and leads out the back of it. I started to find that unless I laid them out "just so" then I'd start to pick up some noise. So started to think it might be time to have a look at components with not just balanced connectors, but with the balanced architecture to take advantage of them. Primare was my first experiment going down this path.

 

I also look for other things as well. The A30.7 has the Neutrik locking connectors and a 3 pin power connector. They're only little things that may or may not amount to anything significant, but it does show the care and thought gone into its design. Would be an absolutely stonking amp if you're thinking of taking advantage of what Atmos and DTS:X bring........especially given your existing kit. 

 

Now to satisfy your curiosity. Watts got more current than a king tide, more fins than a pod of dolphins and as much of a beast as Patrick Cripps??? I've lusted after a Parasound A51 for 15 long years. It's my end game as far as amps go. Black Bertha as she's affectionately known now takes pride of place in the equipment rack. I'm sure you feel exactly the same way with your A32s. 

 

Hopefully someone gets to feel the exact same way as the A30.7. She's a cracker.

      Item: CHORD MEZZO 140 Power Amplifier
      Location: BAYSIDE MELBOURNE
      Price: $2750
      Item Condition: USED
      Reason for selling: No longer used
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info: Rare chance to own a Chord MEZZO 140 Power Amplifier. Specs are here: https://chordelectronics.co.uk/product/mezzo140/
       
      This is a stunning Power amplifier that really added clarity, snap and analytical presence to my system. In my opinion, I thinks it's a British Masterpiece - as with the whole Chord Ensemble - From Dave to POLY, Chord Electronics just make good gear. The amplifiers detailing is sublime. Its in you face, but not like some rowdy drunk on a Saturday night, it's more like an Elite Soldier from Hereford, unassuming, discreet, yet very capable and you just know its great. As you can tell I'll miss this amp. But alas it has to go..... 
       
      Contact me if you'd like to know more information, Chord Packaging included and this is a non smoking, pet free home.
       
      Good Luck and I look forward to hearing from you.

      Item: Sherbourn PA-2-250 Power amplifier 
      Location: Sydney
      Price: $500
      Item Condition: Excellent - 9.5/10
      Reason for selling: Downsizing to an integrated unit
      Payment Method: Pickup only + cash for this one, it's a beast!
      Extra Info: I've been using this beast of a 250 WPC class AB amp from Sherbourn (former high-end Emotiva sub-division) to power my KEF LS50's in my main set-up with a separate pre-amp, but I've moved to a smaller apartment and don't need this amount of power, so I'm moving to an integrated unit. 
       
      It's in perfect nick, but would rate it 9.5/10 given that it's used. It's in perfect operating condition, and makes my LS50's sing. Facilities for both SE and XLR inputs, remote switch etc.
