Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Item: High efficient, full range speaker, ideal for tube amps.
Location: Brisbane
Price: 2500, Pickup only, cash on pickup.
Item Condition: Excellent (9 / 10)
Reason for selling: I built a multipurpose, family friendly audio system for my main room and have not space for a specialized second system.
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash only
Extra Info: If you are into SET Class A tube amps, or have a high quality, low powered solid circuit amp (like a Pass Labs First Watts amp) or simply are sensitive to timing misalignment of speakers with crossovers, this is one of the best speakers at this price point. This particular model is equipped with a 10 inch Neodymium driver from Audionirvana (discontinued due to its high price) that produces a rich aural image due to an extraordinarily timing qualities of a single point source on each channel. The result, for well recorded music, is incredible imaging and a breathtaking width of sound stage. The cabinet is hand made in a beautiful rosewood with satin and oil finish.  Retail price is just over $4000

Wow these look great.  Is there a 10" Neodymium, as I could only find reference to a Ferrite (cheap) and Alnico (expensive) model in the 10" driver.

Not any more. They used to be available but they were discontinued around March 2015. The page backup in the Wayback machine shows them listed for the last time around that date.

What I was told by the manufacturer was that the 10 inch had the same neodymium magnet as the 12 inch (same size, weight etc), but its lower price didn't offered good economics for them. They preferred to sell that magnet in the 12 inch as a higher price. It is unfortunate that they discontinued them as that amount of magnet driving a smaller cone offered best balance in terms of bass control, detail and efficiency.

Looks like the "Megalong" from Tubesound Audio

Yes, same cabinet builder. Excellent quality products. But note that the Megalong is offered with the less expensive 10 inch Anilco driver instead of the premium neodymium.

They do look like very nice cabinets. Coincidentally I am visiting Stephen at TSA later in the week to discuss a rack build.

Wow, that's a great coincidence. Stephen is a really nice and knowledgeable guy. And he offers a great service too.

 

Sometime after I got those speakers I wanted to get a pair of OTL  tube monoblocks from him, but sadly I can't have two audio systems at home. Good luck with your rack build!

      Item: Lamm L2 Reference pre-amplifier - linestage

      Location: Perth

      Price: $9,950.00

      Item Condition:Excellent, as new - cosmetically and operationally perfect

      Reason for selling: Upgraded, so now too many pre-amps

      Payment Method: Pickup - cash, bank transfer

      Extra Info: Original purchaser of this two box reference class hybrid linestage - current valves in PSU are essentially new from Lamm. I believe that the previously used set of valves are somewhere about and which are fine, just seen more use - they will be included as well. The unit has usually been rotated with various other pre-amplifiers, but has quite easily remained the finest sounding pre-amplifiers in my system until I recently upgraded following the release of the LL1.1 Signature ($74K). Operationally dead quiet. Every review and award of this unit is on Lamm Industries website, including all specifications. Comes in it's factory wooden crate with manual. Lamm doesn't do remote controls. Auditions in my home to serious buyers only.
