Item Condition: excellent
Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is included in price.
Suburb or Town: Warrnambool
State: Victoria
Payment Method: cash, bank deposit.
Reason for selling: hasn't been used for years since purchase of current speakers.

Further information: For Sale is the Wilson Watch Dog 2 Subwoofer - A passive subwoofer with Watch controller.     
This is one of the finest subwoofers ever built and for this very reason Wilson Audio have kept this the same for over 15 years!     
While they have upgraded and added onto their speakers in some cases twice over. The Watch Dog has remained.   

Perfection cannot be improved on.     
As this is a passive subwoofer it needs a Mono amplifier - I have paired it with an Audio Research DS450m which is an explosive combination.       
Every item has its original box so shipping is certainly not a problem.     
The WATCH Dog is an ultra-high-performance, compact, passive subwoofer. There’s a widespread myth that since subwoofers operate in the low to subsonic frequency range, the sonic quality of the amplifier used to drive them is not critical. Couple that with the fact that FTC-mandated criteria for power amplifier specifications don’t apply to active subwoofers—a loophole which allows manufacturers to wildly inflate performance claims for what are, in many cases (no pun intended) the severely sub-standard amplifiers built into their subwoofers. 

 

The finish is Wilson ivory which is an upgrade colour.

 

I estimate this sub package to have only 150 hours of use since new.

 

For the asking price you are effectively paying less than retail for the amp or controller and getting the rest of the package for free.

 

RRP of the entire package was around 35k.

 

Listed price is exclusive to SNA members.

 

A brand new set of original spikes aka "puppy paws" are included.

Explosive! Nice combo - this would work well with a pair of Tune Tots, or any other bookshelves for that matter, even a pair of LS3/5's...

I used it with Wilson Audio Sasha speakers with superb results. 
it synergized  seamlessly for both music and home theatre duties.

      Item Condition: VG - EXC Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Box Hill South State: VIC Payment Method: Cash, DD, Paypal to Family/ Friends Reason for selling: NLR  
      Further information:
       
       
      Relisted, due to sale not proceeding for covid related hassles.
       
      This was owned by a mate who purchased it new from Peter Q. at Audio Note in the UK in 1995.
      Purchase price back then was   GB5000 pounds.
       
      Manufactured in the UK, this is one of the very last VOYD turntables made.
      The VOYD utilizes a 3 motor drive system to overcome any dynamic instability in playback.
      The three motors provide fantastic torque and full speed is maintained in like a nano second from turn on.
       
      This unit features the REFERENCE bearing and the REFERENCE polycarbonate platter.
      It also has the original external power supply which is very substantial and not an after thought at over 3kgs.
      All three drive motors are the original Papst units.  None of these motors have ever had any issues whatsoever.
       
      This deck was serviced by Duc at Golden Age Audio around 6 years ago.  At the time Duc recommended a new top plate be CNC m/c from 316 stainless steel to the exact original specs, to replace the magnetic steel original.  This new plate was powder coated to a gloss piano black timber finish to match the base, and proved to be a great sonic improvement.
       
      The base, electrical controls and mechanicals are all in EXCELLENT condition.  The polycarbonate lid is the original and I rate that as very good except for a slightly relaxed spot about 40mm wide.  The lid does have minor imperfections here and there, but it still presents very nicely. With a polish it would come up awesome.  I have not touched it – that is for the new owner.  There is also a very small blemish in the paint on the RH side that almost cannot be seen, but I mention it for full disclosure.
       
      As per the pics, an SME armboard is fitted, but no arm is supplied.
       
       
      EXTRAS- lots of them!  Spare suspension springs, spare bearings for the motor spindle suspension, spare brass feet, spare spindle oil in a syringe.
       
      Original setup instructions are included and I am happy to assist here.
       
      This is a very well regarded turntable and they rarely come up for sale.  They have a very respected following in the UK.
       
      I have the original box, but the foam inserts are way past their best.  I expect new inserts can be made if shipping is required.
      Obviously a local sale is preferred, but I am willing to ship this unit, but only at the buyer’s risk.
       
      The buyer is to pay for shipping (and insurance if req'd) at cost.
      My packing is pretty good though and I had a Garrard 401 travel to Sydney with not a blemish three weeks ago, so have confidence here.
      Any inspection is welcome.
