And with some friends in my big comparo a while back.

 

I could have sworn I had an internal pic as well but it appears I don't :( .  Oh well, additional pics by request if anyone really wants to see the innards.

 

Edit:  Almost forgot, this amp does not like high capacitance speaker cables, so braided cat 5 cables, ribbontek (or ribbonflex) or gertz are out of the question!  I've tried the first two and I've included the third by reputation.

Err how much for the police box in the corner... :)

You can't put a price on the Tardis, it's a pop culture icon and as such I could not bring myself to put it up for sale.

Sorry, I had to sign a non-disclosure agreement so I can't divulge any particulars, but generally speaking, pretty freaking awesome! 

 

Oh and Hensa, Monday after next you should really take a sickie.  Just trust me, OK!

On a slightly more serious note, yes, I am looking forward to 06:50 on Sunday morning.  I've already set my alarm.

 

Wait a minute, that's daylight savings time.  OK, 05:50 EST it is then, good thing I checked.

I did have an inflatable dalek for a while, (originally purchased to be used as a bucks night joke for a mate of mine but for several reasons that never came to pass) but once my nephew decided that he would make a good boxing partner the poor dalek didn't last too long.

 

I miss him, he always got a few good stares when I drove around with him stuffed into the passenger seat (if only I'd had a sun roof, now that would have been cool).

OK, Christmas discount time.  Cut another hundred off the power amp for $1200 and $50 off the pre down to $750.

All right, just in time for "Christmas in July" I'll drop the price to $1000 for the 28 and $500 for the 21 (plus postage).  And Merry Not-Really-Christmas!

And just for kicks, a 'lids lifted' shot of the Classic 21 preamp.

Note the size of the torroidal transformer in the 21 preamp, about the same size as the ones in the power amp, somewhere around 400VA I would guess.

      Item: CAWSEY Pure Class A single-ended solid state amplifier
      Location: South Yarra
      Price: $1500
      Item Condition: Excellent
      Reason for selling: recently bought less efficient speakers
      Payment Method: Pickup - COD or bank transfer Only
       
      Extra Info:
      This is a high-spec version of Garry Cawsey's superb sounding (8 ohm) class A amp with Bocchino RCA and speaker terminals, integral power cord and several other tweaks which only Garry knows the secrets of!
       
      It has a built-in gain stage/volume pot, so in effect it behaves like an integrated amp with a single input if desired, or alternatively just pair it with a pre-amp for use as a dedicated power amp.
       
      Conservatively rated at 12W per channel, it does a fantastic job of driving speakers rated upwards of 88 dB
       
      Price new was $4000. (Garry's base model is $3000 but this is one with the 'extras'.) Although purchased a year ago, it has only been in use about half that time due to overseas trips and more recently the fact that my new speakers, being rated at 86dB into 4 ohm ideally need a beefier amp. Even though this amp drives them to decent volume levels without undue stress it is better paired with more sensitive speakers from a synergy point of view.
       
      I have compared it with a Job power amp among others and this digs out way more of the music and presents it in that 'seductive' way characteristic of class A amps. This is genuine high-end sound at a fraction of the price.

      Location: VIC - Donvale, prefer pickup (can deliver within Melb)
      Price: $390 + postage (buyer pays postage)
      Item Condition: very good condition, in perfect working condition; cosmetics-normal minor wear and tear due to age

      Extra Info: Solid 50wpc SS amp that can drive most speakers well, made in UK.  Comes with original remote.  Legendary British design with a warm and articulate midrange, punchy and extended low end and clear, airy treble.  Punches way above its price tag!

      Item: Rotel RB-991 Power Amplifier
      Location: Melbourne (Northern 'burbs)
      Price: $500
      Item Condition: Cosmetically, pretty much spotless. Electronically, given a clean bill of health by Philatronics (after a minor gain calibration). Will make a bit of a 'whump' when you turn it on, as do most power amps of this era, but no complaints otherwise.
      Reason for selling: I bought it to use with an AVR, then got sick of the AVR and its issues and bought a brand new 200w p/c Rotel integrated instead. This has sat idle ever since.
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash
      Extra Info: 200wpc into 8ohms - possibly more if you read the Stereophile review. Bought from a meticulous owner who used it with a Rotel AVR and an RB-993 to power his Miller & Kreisel surround system, who in turn bought it from another meticulous owner. As far as I know, I am owner #3, and have used it a total of maybe 20 hours at sub-reference levels with some KEF Q700s.

      It is a Dual Mono amplifier, with twin toroidal transformers.
      Choke Regulated power supply
      Power: an effortless 130 wpc into 8 ohms. Gain is a high 30 dB.
      It is about 15 kg before putting in a box, so pick up only. It can be used for bi-amplification. The Front is in Perfect condition. The top has a couple of small scuffs half way to the back – please see the picture.
       
      It sounds wonderful, but I’m downsizing my collection of gear
      Made in the UK.
      In Stereophile magazine’s Recommended Components, it won the coveted rating of Class A.
