For sale is this wonderful tube DAC, purchased new in July with the following options:

  • AK4497 DAC Chips (+$200 USD)
  • MK3 USB Board With Crystek 957 Femto Clocks (+$99.00 USD)
  • RCA/GE 5R4/5U4 Rectifier tube (+$50.00 USD)
  • 4x stock 6N1P tubes 
  • 4x Obbligato Gold output coupling capacitors 
  • I'll throw in the original AK4490 DAC Chips as well

 
I can throw in 4x brand new NOS Tungsram ECC85 tubes for $100 which are a massive improvement over the stock tubes.

 
Bang for buck, this DAC's performance is absolutely sensational and hard to match.  Especially if you upgrade the output caps, tubes and rectifier.

 

There are a couple of tiny scratches on the case which are hard to photograph but I've tried. It comes fully boxed and I can ship at agreed cost.  
 
The main reason I'm selling it is that this DAC is a big beast and I'm using it for a desktop system so prefer something smaller, but I will miss it when it goes. If you want to add the tube sound to your system, this is the ticket!

      Up for grabs is a pair of Quad ESL63 Pro’s. These are the rarer and more sought after US model with the integrated stands. 240V versions, of course. 
      Attained through purchasing a small collection of gear and were told that they ‘just stopped working’. I haven’t investigated I simply won’t. I have been selling quite a lot of gear lately and just need them gone. 
      Good opportunity for a Quad collector for parts or restoration. 
       
      Pick up Geelong.

      Item Condition: Excellent. Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition. Suburb or Town: Baulkham Hills State: NSW Payment Method: Cash Reason for selling: PM K1 Ruby Further information:
       
      THis Marantz PM-15S2 ,is a high-fidelity integrated amplifier with a clear, well-balanced sound.
       
      The amp is built to the exceptional standard that has made the Marantz name famous for high-quality amplifiers.
       
      This model features a fully discrete power amp configuration, and the overall circuitry was designed for exceptional linearity of the source signal.
       
      The sound is excellent, and the build quality is superb.
       
      I have original box and remote control.

      Item Condition: Used Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available. Suburb or Town: Camperdown State: NSW Payment Method: Paypal, EFT, Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: NLR Further information: Dual 1019 turntable, Made in Germany and in great condition for its age.    Includes an old timber plinth, perspex cover and an unknown Shure MM cartridge.  I would assume that the turntable would at the very least require a general service and a new stylus.  I have no way of testing the turntable but the motor seems to be working fine with no noise from turning it on.  The connection is a three pin DIN to the amp, so I think that means mono.  Included is a manual etc  for a dual 1219, something I don't understand when I purchased this.  This was going to become a restoration project and a subsequent gift to a daughter but her location in the world does not make this possible .     Pickup Only please .
