I purchased the amplifier kit from Bob Latino from the U.S. (paid a lot for shipping) with full set of the tubes (3 x Sylvania 12AU7, 1 x TungSol 5AR4, 4 x Soltek6550WE), capacitor upgrade (4 Power supply and 4 hand matched Russian K42-Y PIO coupling caps) and the 21 steps attenuator. Power transformer is 240V.  OFC AC cord fitted with Rhodium plated Furutech IEC inlet. The Drive Board Cover is self made with pure copper plate and is grounded to the chassis as EMI shield.

Wired here in Syndey by myself with solder contains 2% Ag (silver). 

Tested and is runnung perfectly.

I like it so much that I am now looking at upgrading to the VTA M125 Mono Blocks from Bob

      Item Condition: very good Shipping Options: Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Lower Hutt State: New Zealand Payment Method: bank transfer, cash Reason for selling: upgraded bedroom system. Further information:
       Nice wee amp/speakers for a bedroom or small apartment/office.  This was my bedroom system, till upgrading to a (clone) NAP250 and KEF Concerto's.  Can be seen working, will add that the blue EL34's have been replaced with a pair of new JJ EL34's as they showed to be VERY low on my Avo.
       I've had no issues with either unit and have at times run the amp for several hours at a time. It's only 8 watts, but with these wee JPW's it produces enough volume for a small room.

      Item Condition: VGC Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is included in price. Suburb or Town: Kardinya State: Western Australia Payment Method: Any Reason for selling: NLR Further information:
      "The Electrocompaniet EC 4.7 is a high resolution, high performance, DC coupled and fully balanced, remote controlled preamplifier. EC 4.7 has six single ended inputs, where one is fully balanced. One balanced and one single ended line output, and one fixed single ended output to be used as record. The remote controlled motorized volume is developed to not influence or degrade the sonic performance of the EC 4.7. Volume control and input sources can easily be navigated from the remote controller or via the navigators on the front panel. The navigator's window displays the selected source, and the volume position in analogy shown by a blue lit. The EC 4.7 features Electrocompaniets unique FTT technology, which is capable of deliver twice the current as conventional power supply designs. This combination with a Toroidal transformer and a reservoir of capacitance far beyond necessary will give you more than adequate control of your system. Contains only high quality discrete components."
       
      Comes with original double box, remote and manual. No power amp at the moment, BYO  for demo.
       
      Described as VGC only because  remote is showing signs of usage (slightly faded letters on volume buttons only).
       
      Unit itself is in excellent condition.
       
      Price is firm.  (Take $50 off  if picked up.)

      Beautiful sounding USB cable. Just no use for it anymore. It's warranty is also something to be looking at. It is lifetime AND transferable. If it breaks, its replaced, no questions asked. Doesn't matter how many times its been traded, sold or given away, and no sales receipt needed!
       
      LightSpeed is an open-wheel racer, those other USB cables are freight-trains. LightSpeed USB is light, flexible, and a serious over-achiever, outperforming the competition, and exceeding all future standards. In real-world listening rooms, it's easy to install and performs beautifully. You WILL hear the difference— even if you think all USB cables are the same.

      The Linn Silver Interconnect Cable is a 1.2 metre length cable constructed from 50 strand copper conductor with a double layer braided shielding 7mm in diameter.
       
      In any environment with electrical noise present, particularly in digital-based systems, this cable has a significant benefit. The stiffer construction formed by the heavy double-braided shielding makes the cable much more robust and essentially free of microphony.
