      Item Condition: good cosmetically, fully functional  Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition. Suburb or Town: Richmond 3121 State: VIC Payment Method: cash on pick up, EFT Reason for selling: Magtech
      I've just upgraded to a Sanders Magtech so my Elektra has to go. It's in very good condition - no scratches or dents, and it works as it should.  As you can hear from the picture it's an excellent amp with enough power, grip and finesse for most speakers - including the Magnepan 1.7 and B&W 805 D3 I have used it with for several years.  250 wpc into 8ohms, and close to double into 4ohms. It isnt as good as the Magtech, but then what is?   I don't have boxes so this is pick up only.   You can audition if you're a serious buyer.

      Hi guys, I recently purchased (haven’t received) the STAX SR5 +SRD-6.
      I’d always heard about the mythical electrostatic earspeakers. They say you can “hear God” through them. I was quite excited when I found a loophole that’d allow me to hear them without dropping thousands of dollars... Just buy STAX that are 46 years old. Research compares them favourably to even Sennheiser HD800s, which are about 10 times as expensive as what I paid for these.
      Turns out they require a tremendous amount of power to drive compared to headphones, and unfortunately I only have headphone amps.
      I’m looking for the most cost effective solution to get these up and running. Problem is I’m a somewhat audio illiterate, especially when it comes to stereos and double-especially when it comes to electrostatic earspeakers.
      As far as I know, I don’t need an electrostatic amp because these come with the transformer which allows me to plug it into a standard amp... right?
      What’s my best option? Cost effective is the key here, this was supposed to be cheap after all.
      Cheers guys.

      Item Condition: As new, purchased 3 weeks ago. Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Paynesville State: VIC Payment Method: Paypal, EFT or Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: Just after buying this I also bought a Cambridge CXA 81 amp which has an inbuilt DAC. Further information:
       Paid $402.95 only 3 weeks ago but the ended up buying a Cambridge CXA 81 amp which has an inbuilt DAC.  I did a lot of research before buying the SMSL M200 and they come up as the by far best DAC for their price.  Balanced and unbalanced inputs, bluetooth that I found as good as the direct input and extensive tuning options. and an included remote. A great DAC but now surplus to my requirements.

      Item Condition: very good Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available. Suburb or Town: Hurlstone Park State: NSW Payment Method: Paypal (+3.5%), Paypal friend, cash on pick-up Reason for selling: Not sure ... hence EOI I bought this from Clay about 2.5 years ago.
      It was originally built in mid-2014 and then with Clay until I bought it in mid-2018. The Konverter has been part of my system ever since while a number of other DACs came and went.
      Amazing Gieseler quality one of a kind DAC with some added tube goodness. Exceptional build quality and very high spec components – this was originally going to retail for around the $6,000 mark. Almost perfect combination of detail retrieval, musicality and tube-flavour of choice, which is why I kept coming back to this over and over again.
      EOI at this stage, as this is one of the very few items I believe I might regret selling. House renos are imminent and I need to simplify system and get rid of some gear.
      Link to Clay’s original for sale add with a lot more detail and some additional photos:
      Quote from a PM that Clay sent to when giving the Konverter a final test-run before sending it:
      “I compared it to a Gross DAC & was quite surprised with the result. I was expecting more detail from the Gross but it was the other way round. Bottom end was similar on both DAC’s - maybe a fraction tighter on the Gross but not much in it.”
      I had one issue with the Konverter a couple of months after buying it. The LDR/optical volume system was drifting out of balance favouring the left channel. Initially adjusted back with the balance trimmer on the PCB inside the Konverter with Clay’s remote support, but kept drifting out of balance. New Optos were ordered from the US, matched and installed by Terry Demole (zenelectro here on SNA) in Sydney with some remote assistance provided by Clay. Problem resolved and no issues in the 2 years since.
      The DAC comes with several tubes that I used over the years, so you have a good range of different “flavours” to experiment with:
      1.      Genalex Gold Lion E88CC (this was the original tube it came with)
      2.      Philips NOS PCC88 (provided by Clay as an option)
      3.      Amperex 6922 US Pinched Waist D Getter PQ 1959 (my favourite)
      4.      Siemens E88CC grey shield 1966
      5.      Telefunken E88CC 1968
      Any questions, please ping me a PM or ask here.
      I am very reluctant to post this – not due to weight but rather due to potential damage in transit, so pick-up only at the moment. I can deliver within Greater Sydney if required and pre-arranged. No in-home auditions at this stage – sorry.
