Item Condition: functionally excellent, cosmetically good Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Sydney Inner West State: New South Wales Payment Method: PayPal (+3.5%)/PayPal friend, Cash on pick-up Reason for selling: NLR For sale are two NuForce Ref9 V3 monoblock amplifiers with custom TDSS internal upgrades (cabling, noise reduction and new PSUs). Cosmetically good and functionally excellent condition.
I am the second owner of these and purchased them from the original owner in Europe 5 years ago. They were purchased as Ref9 V2 with upgraded (WBT) binding posts, hence the V2 print on the faceplates. I brought them to AU and had them upgraded by Bob Smith at TDSS in the US in 2017.
Invoices for the upgrades are shown with the photos (personal details blacked/greyed out) and I will send the uncensored PDF invoices for the work to the buyer.
Boards were upgraded to V3 boards, and a full TDSS level 3 upgrade done to both monoblocks. Additional details on the link below:
Highly rated audiophile monoblocks with lots of grunt to drive even difficult speakers loads with many favourable reviews online. Taken to yet another level with the upgrades performed by Bob Smith at TDSS. Original RRP on these was around $3,000 US, plus just under $2k US for the upgrades (not including shipping to/from US).
These are incredible amplifiers for the money and it took me a long time to decide to part with these (and the matching P9 preamp which I will be listing shortly). I am just simply not using them at the moment as I have no dedicated listening room anymore and have gone to a Lyngdorf all in one solution including room correction which gives better results in my untreated and very open living area.
Local pick-up is given preference, but as I have the original packaging I can post at agreed cost if required.
Happy to negotiate a deal if someone wants to take these together with the matching NuForce P9 Preamp that I am also listing – shoot me a PM.

Item Condition: As New
Reason for selling: NLR due to upgrade

I purchased these power amplifiers one year ago from a dealer in N.SW. who had closed up his business.
I did not get to use them until July of this year due to a home renovation and overseas travel.
It is recommended that they are run in for 70 hours and that is all the use that they have had.
They are for all intents and purposes brand new.
They sound fabulous and I believe they are a bargain at this price.
Audition at my home in Belgrave is welcome.
I am happy to ship at purchasers expense.
The cost would be in the region of $140.00, or less, depending on location, including insurance.

Item: Image by Nelson Audio EL34 Power Amps (Mono blocks)
Location: Melbourne City
Item Condition: Great working order
Reason for selling: Space constraints /Simplifying system
Payment Method: Pickup only - Cash, Paypal
These mono-blocks made a substantial difference to my system in terms of texture, resolution, speed, attack and the general warmth (EL34) tubes are renowned for.
Punching well above their weight, Image by Nelson Audio are based on the Marantz 9 power amps. 75 watts output based on 4 x EL34 tubes and each unit weighs in at about 35kg each.
Since purchasing this, I have had the switches and caps replaced (new tubes throughout fitted with about 20 hours on them) The units have some very minor cosmetic blemishes as indicated in photos and functionally they work exceptionally well. A reluctant sale, there is simply not enough space in my lounge to accommodate these heavy beasts due to some new hardware taking up limited space in my rack. I'll include all the old tubes (all except one are in great condition) with the purchase.
These amps would be difficult to pack and post so I'm just open to local pick-up only.
Any questions welcome. Thanks for looking
