Regretful sale of my rare gorgeous Pioneer A-09. 

This really is an exclusive which was the hi-end division for Pioneer at the time. This was imported from Japan at considerable cost. I paid $3250. Proof of purchase available to any serious potential buyer. It is in amazing condition. I would rate it a solid 9/10. There have been a couple for sale over the last few years but none in this condition. Pure class A at it’s finest. I lusted over one of these for years. It sounds just superb on my JBL’s and can go to silly levels....can just about drive any speaker out there. Price is firm and I won’t be going any lower as I think it’s miles ahead of anything in it’s price range. 480000y in 1992 makes it quite expensive in its day.  
 
Last picture sourced online. Couldn’t get a good enough one of mine.

Could you please clarify the power input requirements for this amp, ie is it 240V or 110? If it is 240, was the modification done at the factory or elsewhere?

 

Also, I know my eyesight is not what it used to be, but I cannot see a power input socket anywhere.

 

Thanks.

Zooming in on the rear photo shows that it is a 220-230v unit, unusually power cord connection must be under the machine?

 

Very nice looking amplifier and, glwts.

The rear photo looks lifted from a European site so I wouldn't put too much store in things you see there. Best the seller answers I guess.

As my ad says it’s a Japanese import. Step down will be supplied as well. Power cord is located under the unit.

Very nice amp. I remember reading about it on Whathifi Mag, 1998 issue and salivated with the just the thought of owning one. Would definitely consider buying if was 230v

Thanks for the nice comments guys. It really is a super sounding machine. It will also be having a once over by a qualified tech before sale.

The last pic showing the rear of the amp was sourced online as I couldn’t get a good enough shot of mine.  Happy to remove the last pic if need be. Just gives potential buyers an idea on what the rear looks like.

This is one of Pioneer's best ever!  A friend of mine has one of these gorgeous things and I love the sound of it. The sound stage is wide and presents with plenty of depth. The midrange sounds velvety smooth, coupled with glistening highs and strong, well controlled, never bloated bass and all without a hint of ever being strained. This amp effortlessly produces amazing, highly smooth and sophisticated sound with excellent clarity and transparency - a real testimony to the great engineering work of Pioneer's engineers. A startling appearance to cap it all off, makes this amp fully worth the out-lay. My only criticism, if  you could call it that, is that this amp will show up any bad sound engineering in any source but; it will reward you highly when playing  anything of  substantial quality. To me its simple, if this was my amp I would be hanging on to it. Amps of this quality only come around once in a blue moon. Have a think about it before letting it go buddy.

      Selling used Empire Ears Odin IEM/earphones which comes with Empire Ears Stormbreaker upgrade cable (the cable itself is worth a lot and that is their stock cable).
       
      Purchased from Minidisc (one of the best IEM shops in NSW and Australia IMO) on early December 2020.
       
      It comes with its original box, IEM case, cleaning tool, FInal Audio type E ear tips (ss, s, m, L and LL size).
       
      It is one of the best IEMs.
       
      ***please note, the stormbreaker is black colour cable, this does not come with Effect Audio Leonidas ii octa cable, the cable ad's listed separately ***

      ***if you want, i can include EA Leonidas ii octa cable at agreed price thx ***
       
      Odin is the Norse God of wisdom, divination, poetry, death and magic. With a flagship 'Trib-brid' design, Empire Ear's Odin aims for God-like performance. The 11 driver design includes 3 different driver types:  2 W9+ subwoofers, an enhance design compared to the previous Empire Ears dynamic driver W9 design with a higher excursion driver that delivers extended sub-bass response and lower distortion. 5 proprietary Balanced Armature drivers and 4 electrostatic EIVC drivers deliver the same ethereal detail and frequency response found in previous designs like the Valkyrie and Wraith.
      The Odin also features an exclusive 'Stormbreaker' hand crafted copper litz cable made in collaboration with PW Audio of Hong Kong and Pentaconn of Japan. Also exclusive to the Odin is the three stage laminated 'Bifrost' faceplate which reveals unique colour transitions at different angles of light.

      Item Condition: Excellent - used once Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Hunters Hill State: NSW Payment Method: Paypal, EFT, cash Reason for selling: Too many lenses Apochromatic (APO) (per Laowa) macro lens. L Mount. 
       
      Manual focus only. 
       
      Very well built metal construction and focuses to a 2:1 magnification ratio... that's not a typo. It will throw double the in focus area onto the sensor. 
       
      Selling as I predominately use a 44x33 system for Macro, am running out of space and need to thin the herd.
