Further information:

 

Up for sale is a brilliant pair of Mono blocks and my favourite amps I've owned. Maybe not the huge output of some of the Big Krell & Magnus gear that's come through my room, but just sublime midrange, vocals and overall beautiful sound.

 

However hifi needs to take a backseat to family for a while and I need something simple and at least half reasonable sounding (Luxman L590AX). I had planned to just put them into storage until Bub is bigger but it seems a waste, someone should get to enjoy them.

 

They are parallel single ended, couldn't give you much in the way of specs, but most folk tell me they should put out 14-18watts or so. They go more than loud enough to drive my 89dB Jamo's to good levels on any content, and haven't let me down. 

 

Canadian made Hammond transformers and point to point wiring inside, very well made and easily repairable.

 

They have power leads integrated, but I'm sure this could be easily changed if you want to use fancy power cables. They also have a separate switch for the output transformers so you can let them warm up correctly before firing them up, and have soft start on the switches.

 

Few tiny marks on the timber but nothing serious.

 

Haven't got original packing, but I'm sure I can pack safely enough for freight if necessary, but would rather a local sale (Happy to deliver around SE QLD areas Brisbane/Sunny Coast etc)

 

Lastly, I want to mention, they do have a very quiet hum through the speakers when powered up, this is normal for this type of amplifier. It's only audible within a meter or 2 of the speakers, but just part of SET Amplifiers in general. I have used them on 96Db efficient speakers too, and not been upset with the result.

 

PS_ Hifi rack will be getting sold now too, as I'm attempting to reduce box count to a point a Normal TV unit will work.


Photos:

Pics aren't brilliant, but if anyone is interested in them, more than happy to get the big camera going for some close-ups, just haven't unpacked it yet since moving last.

Gremrock has excellent taste in amplifiers. Parallel Single Ended 300B amps are in my opinion the most useable way to enjoy the sonic joy of an SET whilst capable of driving a much wider  range of speakers.  These are amplifiers that can totally realign your concept of listening pleasure.

 have pm with some questions one of which is who is audile?

 

I'm not 100% sure here, but these might have been made by Barry Clarke here in Melbourne for Bill Taylor, who had moved to Queensland in his latter years.  It was a Bill Taylor circuit and started life with a 6SN7 as the first driver tube, to drive the EL34.

 

Bill and Barry made preamps and phono amps  under the name of Audile.  These were sold by George Secher.

 

Barry's build quality is exceptional, rarely seen these days!  All point to point etc.  Bill might have changed out the 6SN7 for a 6072, a driver tube he was fond of.

 

Very nice...  I think you are mad parting with them!

Just at work, will try to get into them after work and find the camera for some decent pics. 

 

Red is pretty bang on with that description. Though they've had their current configuration since I've owned them. Didn't expect so much interest straight away or I'd have put more effort into the pics for you all haha

This is when they just had been finished and were spanking new back in 2007.

 

Beautifully simple!  Which translates to beautiful music.

Thats definitely the inside of these Red, did you own them previously? 

 

They have a 6CG7 Driver, EL34 & 2x 300bs. (The 6CG7 was created which simply put the 6SN7 elements into a 9 pin minature tube. The main difference is that the plates of the two sections are slightly closer together because of the narrow confines of miniature tube <---Bit of info on the tube)

 

I got them from a friend who personally knew Bill so they have a certain amount of sentiment, however I can't justify just storing them for 10+ years, and the system simply isn't getting the use it should, as its a bit too complicated with Bub in hand. 

 

Heres a closeup of the main mark on the timber, there are 1 or 2 other little marks but I can't manage to get a clear photo of them.

 

Any further questions feel free to PM or call out to @Red MacKay haha. He seems to know more about them than me, I just use them :P

Nope, I have never laid eyes on them, but jeez - they are nice.

 

I had an educated guess at who made them.  Just trying to be helpful. 🙂

      Item Condition: New. Sealed in box. Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is included in price. Suburb or Town: Oran Park State: NSW Payment Method: All payment methods. Paypal add 2.6%. Reason for selling: Excess  
      Strong™ Universal Fine Adjust Projector Mounts for big Projectors up to 23kg.
      SM-PROJ-XL-BLK RRP $480 Price includes delivery. Or you can pickup and save $30
       
      I ordered two of these so someone else can benefit from the best projector bracket on the market. I've fitted this to the Epson flagship in my home cinema and it is completely invisible. Highly recommended for premium home theatre.
       
      The main benefits are the fine adjustment rotary knobs that lets you precisely locate your image without keystone or overscanning so you maximise your projected picture quality. Anyone who's installed a projector with a regular bracket will attest that it's painful and time consuming to get it perfect as the one screw usually locks all 3 axis at once. And, usually when you tighten the screw, it goes out of precise position. And often they're a bit wobbly which causes image shake with big bass hits.
       
      With this bracket, you can finely adjust the distance from the screen (within a small range); horizontal position; vertical position; and yaw (rotation) - all individually. That's four separate adjustments available.
      Additionally, it's made to handle big, heavy projectors and keep them rigidly positioned so you don't get subwoofer induced picture vibration. I fitted one with the big Epson 9300W and love it. Enough talk, below is the sales blurb.

      Equipped with longer mounting arms and security screw holes, these projector mounts are specifically designed to handle oversized models up to 50 lbs., including JVC projectors, while offering maximum installation flexibility. They feature tool-less adjustments - so getting the ideal alignment is a breeze - and have a simple three-piece design that minimizes time spent at the top of the ladder. Also included is a plastic cover to keep the install looking neat and tidy.
       
      Tool-Less Adjustments
      Getting a projector image to perfectly align with a screen is easier said than done. Thankfully this mount simplifies the process with easy-to-use vertical tilt, horizontal roll and yaw adjustments. Just pop off the cover and use the tool-less dials to make micro adjustments until the ideal alignment is achieved - no tightening or loosening of the screws required.
      Easy To Install
      A smart three-piece design makes it easy to get this projector securely installed. The top plate attaches to the ceiling and screws into the mount assembly body, while the bottom plate (with attached projector) simply slides and locks into place. It makes installing the product fast and easy.
      Security Screws
      This mount features multiple security screws for projector attachment, as well as screws on each side of the mounting base - which all help to lock things in place. Move the mount around until you get the perfect center of gravity for the projector, then tighten down the screws and you’re good to go!
      Mounting Flexibility
      For the most versatility in your next installation, this projector mount features longer arms that extend for up to 17.7” diameter mounting. Plus it has a series of slots on the arms and the bottom plate that provide almost limitless placement options, so it’s easy to get the projector perfectly positioned. Need to install directly in concrete or ceiling drywall? Not a problem – just use the included hardware.
      Extension Capability
      If you want to drop the projector off the ceiling with an extension pole, we've included a separate ceiling plate to allow for easy connection to the pipe. Also included is a plastic cover to keep the install looking neat and tidy.
