  • Cyrus PreV2 and 8 power, TRADE-INS, Silver, no box, no remote, good condition

    A delectable combination of separate Pre-amplifier with power amplifier within two neat half sized chassis. These are serious audiophile components at a bargain price.

    Separating the pre-amp from the power amp has its usual benefits: giving a separate power supply to the more sensitive pre-amp circuitry and to the power hungry power amp circuitry dramatically increases performance while keeping down noise interference from their respective components.

    But more than that Cyrus designs equipment that are devastatingly musical. Yes, it's clean and precise but the sound is never clinical or 'too sharp'. 

    This pre-power combination in particular will make you sit up and listen.

  • Rotel RC-1572 Pre Amplifier

    The heart of an uncompromising audiophile stereo “separates” system is the preamplifier. Separate components hold the promise of the best possible fidelity, since each device is optimised for its role in the sound reproduction chain. The new RC-1572 stereo preamplifier leverages the design of our flagship RC-1590 preamplifier including its 32bit/768kHz AKM stereo digital-to-analog converter to handle critical signal conversion. Among many refinements, the RC-1572 utilises relay switching for analog sources instead of an IC based switch to maintain the integrity of the signal path for RCA, phono and XLR inputs. Learn More

  • Moon P3 Preamplifier (Consignment)

    Moon P3 Preamplifier. For sale on consignment. The Moon P-3 is next to the top of the preamplifier line from Sim Audio. The 18- pound chassis is black with a 3/8-inch thick brushed aluminum face plate that is threeinch high and 17-inch wide. The sides of the 12¾-inch deep chassis are aluminum extrusions each made in the form of half a ribbed cylinder extending from front to back. They serve as the heat sinks. There are four vertical black cylinders attached to the sides. The bases of these cylinders are truncated gold-colored cones that have threaded holes. Supplied small pointed cones screw into these holes. I used Mach 1 Acoustics isolation feet rather than the pointed cones Learn More
  • Cyrus Pre2 Dac

  • Cambridge Audio 851D Digital Pre-amp,

    This is a solid piece of kit that is audiophile and extremely practical in the way people listen to music these days. Digital music now comes from a multitude of sources, but the digital to analogue converters in most PCs, MACs, Laptops or TVs are often an afterthought.

    Bypass the same audio through the 851D’s twin premium DACs in dual differential mode and its 2nd generation Adaptive Time Filtering process and it’ll bring every drop of detail and depth back into your music so it can be heard exactly as it should sound.

  • Densen B200 Pre amp & B320 Power amp, TRADE-IN

    Densen are a small Danish company producing extraordinary electronics known for their super clear sound that's produced by an ultra low noise floor. They pride themselves on making quality not quantity and products that will last a lifetime.

    We've got a special set of their most popular, most sold units available for sale that were traded-in by an old customer who stills laments about having given them up. Their loss is your gain!

    Orginally a set of these dark beauties set one back about $9K...$2500 for this set, is a steal.


    Please note, one of the screws for the extra binding post for use when biwiring, is missing. Other than that, they're in perfect condition.

    We can separate the pair, if you ask us nicely but would prefer to sell them as a set. Please call us to enquire

  • Rotel 1590 Pre and Power Amplifier ..The Hulk in an Iron Mask with velvet gloves

    In the end amplification is about electronics and physics ... the amplifier is the engine that drives your loudspeakers. It needs to make real amperage into a real reactive resistive load to proffer control over the electric motor that is a drive unit in the speaker and do so with the delicacy of modulation required to fulfill the demands of the musical signal so as to be realistically iterated to the listener.

    It dosn't matter how many watts the marketing department puts on the front panel of that colourfully boxed Surround Receiver, it is still going to sound rubbish when  music is actually played through it ...

    This Rotel combination weighs as much as a good 1000cc plus motorcycle engine, and has a similiar aim of power and control. 

    Unlike the internal combustion engine this will last a generation or two and is unlikely to require any maintanance.

  • PS Audio DirectStream DAC ($9860 with Bridge II streamer)

  • PS Audio BHK Signature Preamplifier

    This made an immediate and frankly stunning effect when I added it to the system pictured. Before we had been running the PS Audio Transport, DAC, and power amplifier together as a minimalist high powered high current set of kit readily able to drive the highly transparent Monitor Audio Platinum II loudspeakers. Adding the BHK Signature Preamp bought the system to life. The music leapt holographically into the room and was just a consuming experience. Whereas before it had been good, but somehow unmoving, now one was just swept up and carried off by the music. Brilliant. Learn More
