Accuphase C275 preamp - immaculate

Recommended Posts

Item: Accuphase C275 preamp, with optional persimmon wooden cover
Location: Adelaide
Price: $3,900
Item Condition: Faultless
Reason for selling: System synergy
Payment Method: As agreed
Extra Info:
 This preamp by Accuphase is in faultless condition, having recently been checked by Kasum Audio and given a clean bill of health. I also had the persimmon wooden cover re-polished by Adelaide French Polishers to remove slight wear marks and it presents as new. In fact the mirror-like finish makes it difficult to photograph without picking up the smallest reflection and glare. It is a stunning work of art.

 

In short, the detail and scale of presentation of this preamp is superb. Instruments and voicing are presented with every nuance, with delicacy and dynamics.

 

The C275 has both XLR inputs and outputs, and I found a significant enhancement in sound quality when using the XLR connections (with compatible sources). There is also a near perfect remote control in matching light gold. It also has a variety of features including bass and tone adjust, balance control and headphone output jack.

 

This is a very heavy piece of equipment - nearly 20 kgs, and will be properly packed if going interstate, but you will need to arrange a courier.

Quite a run on Accuphase pre’s of late!!  This one looks well cared for (as they all seem to).  Is it possible configure these in any way with HT ByPass/pre in like functionality?  GLWTS

What I did along these lines was to run the stereo analogue outputs from my Oppo into one of the Line inputs, and select that option for playback via the remote control. Obviously your bluray play needs to have analogue outputs. The other outputs for centre and surround can either go directly into a power amp, or into an HT receiver. You can control volume via one of those two item's remotes.

 

Please PM me if you'd like further info.

 

Yes, both the C280 and my C275 have been very well cared for!

      Item: Audio Research GSi75 Integrated Amp/DAC
      Location: Douglas HiFi - 3/116 Mounts Bay Rd, Perth
      Price: $25999 $18500
      Item Condition: Ex-Shop Demo - Cosmetically As New w/Full Warranty and all Original Packaging and Accessories.
      Reason for selling: Recently Discontinued Model
      Payment Method: Cash, Paypal, Direct Deposit, Master, Visa
      Shipping available Australia Wide
      Extra Info: 
      With its gorgeous artisan style the Audio Research GSi75 shows off a welded chassis, thick front plate and the combination of new and old ARC cues.  
      As the name suggests, the integrated is a (2x) 75W design, using the KT150s (first used in the GS150 power amp) and now featuring throughout Audio Research’s lines. 
      In addition to being a good quality integrated amplifier, the Audio Research GSi75 sports a very fine phono stage, an outstanding upsampling DAC, and even a very high performance headphone amp. 
      The physicality of the GSi75 is not something to be sniffed at either - It’s a large, sophisticated integrated amplifier for the modern music lover: it does everything you could think of, does it all well, and exudes a sense of absolute class in the process. It’s a tube amp for people who like the sound and the idea of tube amps, but don’t like all the fuss and bother they sometimes cause.
      Insert, bias, play… it’s all made extremely simple. The onboard phono stage is quiet and dynamic, a perfect match for the rest of the amplifier.
      Rather than just sounding nice – something many valve designs actively aim for – this one majors on insight and agility. It reveals the harmonic richness in the sound of a piano and renders it with a subtlety of dynamics... equally, when asked to rock out it does a wonderful job of dynamics and slam without ever sounding either harsh or soft and wooly.
      The DAC – which can be set to upsample to 24-bit, 352.8/384kHz (depending on original sampling frequency) also supports DoP DSD replay – there is also ‘fast’ and ‘slow’ digital filters which help cope with the vagaries of modern (and especially online) digital sources. The DAC allows you to access whatever files you have on hand; 16-bit/44khz all the way up to 2x DSD, so you won’t be left out in the cold. There are a bevy of digital inputs as well; RCA, Toslink and USB all help make the GSi75 the hub of your digital music world.
       
      There are also (3x) standard RCA Line Level inputs to complement the aforementioned Phono and DAC inputs.
