When i was a kid i found a silver solid state Pioneer power amp and pre at the auctions that was quite high end and looked similar.
The sound was amazing!

That is one of the best restoration I have ever seen. Its in better than brand new condition.

 

It was nice to see that this tech will cover the entire faceplate with masking tape before working on any vintage unit. And that love towards vintage units reflects in rest of his work too.

 

Never thought you will sell this beauty ! GLWTS.

      Item: Paradigm Speaker combination (2 x Studio 100, CC690 and SUB15)
      Location: Melbourne
      Price:
      Paradigm Studio 100 v5s - $3300
      Paradigm Studio CC690 - $1400
      Paradigm SUB15 - $2200
      Item Condition: Used but without any wear, other than one tiny knick in the fabric cover of the Sub (it came like that)
      Reason for selling: Sadly, no space for a dedicated HT anymore
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (buyer pays any fees)
      Extra Info:
      I regretfully have to sell my dream set up (at my price-point) due to a lack of a dedicated room anymore.  I have already moved on the pre-proc and the amps, along with cables, etc but now its time to part with the speakers.
       
      As you can see from the photos I do have the boxes, and internal rigid foam packaging, and can post, but would really prefer to find a local buyer so they can inspect and make sure they're happy prior to paying.  I am happy to post domestically within Australia, just not internationally.
       
      I have owned these since new, so they haven't had a number of homes or been moved around much at all

      Item: DALI SPEKTOR 2 bookshelf speakers pair in ex display condition 
      Location: Leichhardt 
      Price: $499.00
      Item Condition: Ex display 
      Reason for selling: Clearance 
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Credit card on pick up, Direct deposit
      Extra Info: Can freight at extra cost 
       
      Whilst still being a compact speaker, the SPEKTOR 2’s larger inner volume delivers extra bass performance. The increased surface areas of the 5¼” woofer and 25 mm soft dome tweeter increases the overall sound pressure levels, making this the perfect choice for larger rooms that still require a compact speaker. The SPEKTOR 2 will also find itself at home in any surround position, helping you get that fully immersive movie experience.

      Item: FAZON F5, speakers pair hand-painted, unique design ex display condition 
      Location: Leichhardt 
      Price: $3,999.
      Item Condition: Ex display condition 
      Reason for selling: Clearance 
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Direct deposit, Credit card on pick up. 
      Extra Info: Can freight at extra cost 
       
      The DALI FAZON reaps the full benefits of creative Scandinavian design talent, as well as decades of experience at the cutting edge of technological innovation. DALI FAZON combines advanced driver and material technologies developed for the acclaimed DALI IKON and MENTOR series.
      The FAZON series is proof positive that, when done right, form and function can be allies. The fluid, organic lines of the die-cast aluminium enclosures are a perfect example. The distinctive styling and curved forms are much more than artistic whims. They also provide enhanced structural integrity, reduced vibration and no parallel surfaces - all key elements in the pure, musical tone of these masterful loudspeakers.
