Further information: 

I have for sale my Creek OBH-21 SE headphone amp. This is the SE - special edition. 

 

I bought it brand new about 10 years ago, and used lightly as I don't listen to headphones too often. The amp is in great condition. It has a couple of tiny nicks, the biggest one is on the Creek logo (see photos).

It comes from a smoke, pet and kid-free home.

 

The amp can drive two pairs of low to medium impedance headphones at the same time. I used various headphones over the years, including AKG K702, Sennheiser HD-650 and Hifiman HE-400i. All sounded great with it. I switched to Stax a couple of years ago, which came with its own amp, and the Creek hasn't been getting any use. So the sale.

 

The amp comes with its original box and the OBH Uni power adapter. The adapter has swappable power plugs, but I only have the UK one.

 

I'm happy to post to anywhere in Australia an extra for $25. Pickup and audition available in Lindfield NSW 2070.

       Good working condition,one of the early seven channel amps (it has 5 channels plus front ambience)plus you can connect two centre chanels or a bywired one and provision for two subwoofers, pre in main out and phonostage. Some scratches and marks on the wood trims but generally presentable. I don't have the original remote but i will supply a Logitech remote programmed for the Yamaha amp.No box or manual and the amp is approximately kg30 so would prefer pickup.

      PRICE DROP
      I acquired this PWD fairly recently, privately in WA, as a Mark 1 version and have since upgraded it to a Mark 2.
      I am guessing that anyone interested in this unit will already know all about the PS Audio PerfectWave DAC.
      Furthermore, this unit can also be upgraded/converted into a PerfectStream configuration.
      Since upgrading, I have had it working flawlessly through the Bridge Mark 1, via ethernet, streaming from my Mini Mac server, using JRiver app. 
      I was very happy with the result and am only selling because I have (unexpectedly) just upgraded to very high end CD player, which has an equally high end, externally accessible DAC.
      I do also have the remote control.
      As per the pics, external appearance is very good, with no blemishes that I can see. So, fortunately or unfortunately, PWD no longer required., as I can now stream through the CD player DAC, thus simplifying the whole system..

      Extra Info: 
      A massive machine that gets the best out of your vinyl. Separate Sub Chassis and a mass loaded turntable gives us the best of both worlds.

      The design of the E.A.T. Forte turntable is based on a combination of two basic principles:
      Separate Sub Chassis and a mass loaded turntable This gives us the best of both worlds. The chassis of the table is very heavy and mass-loaded using metal-fi lled sand. The feet are magnetic and act as a sub chassis to support the table.
      Platter
      The platter consists of two parts. The first part uses a soft alloy, the second part, a harder one. This reduces energy flow. The first part also incorporates the neodymium magnets. The platter weighs more than 20 kg (44 lbs). The diameter of the platter is 400 mm (15.75 1/2) (not the usual 300 mm [11.8 1/2]). Kinetic energy stored in such big platter turning at 33 RPM is an incredible 2460 Joules! This means that with the same weight you gain more moving mass on the platter. The platter also incorporates sorbothane damping to make it resonance free.
      Vinyl matt
      The vinyl matt is made from recycled vinyl records crating a perfect interface for the record. A clamp holds the record on the vinyl matt.
      Bearing construction
      The bearing is not standard but inverted with an oversized polished shaft. A ceramic ball is used on the top because it is very hard and inert. This, in combination with a Teflon plate as a bearing mirror, is also a good damping device. Teflon's accurate satin surface produces perfectly smooth movement without any rumble. The platter has a magnetic suspension using neodymium magnets. By increasing the distance from the bearing to the cartridge, the small neodymium magnets eliminate magnetic infl uence on the cartridge. Due to the magnets we can still move a large mass allowing the bearing to see virtually no pressure. This avoids rumble. (A mass loaded platter usually causes high levels of rumble.) The pressure of the bearing is adjustable. There are existing different philosophies about bearing pressure. With the Forte turntable you can adjust it according your preferences and taste.
      Magnetic Feet
      The table has large magnetic feet with a bearing and stabilization system. It guaranties close to 100% isolation from the floor and from airborne resonances. The magnetic bearing system allows us to use the extra silent Tefl on-ceramic combination. Usually high pressure would cause the bearing to wear out over the time. This does not happen because of the very low pressure created by the use of the magnetic system.
      Motor
      The motor is a stand-alone, decoupled AC unit. It uses a sophisticated electronic circuit to create 100% clean AC. It is very heavy motor with lot of mass to reduce all the existing vibrations. Motor energy is absorbed by using a sandwich system of metal and MDF. We decided to use a "dual motor design" to eliminate noise in the motor. By using two relatively weak, but silent running motors, we achieve perfect torque.
      Belt
      Long belts usually have some amount of wobble. To avoid this we use a special silicon string. This movement is also absorbed by the bearing block and by the huge mass of the platter itself.
      E.A.T. the Energy
       
      The E.A.T. Forte turntable is all about eating energy.
       
         - Energy from the ground is decoupled by magnetic feet.
         - Energy from the air is decoupled from the heavy chassis that is made from MDF and fi lled metal sand.
         - Energy from tone arm and cartridge is absorbed by using a heavy metal tone arm base isolated by sorbothane.
         - Energy from the belt is captured by the mass of the platter and by the string itself.
         - Energy from the motor is captured by the dual-motor design, the decoupled motor unit and the mass-loaded motor chassis.
         - Energy of the bearing is catch by the ceramic ball, the Tefl on plate and the magnetic bearing construction.
