Reason for selling: Trying something else

Further information:       Never thought I'd sell this, has been in my system longer than other things....but you know how it goes.

Conrad Johnson ET3SE.   Mint condition.    Please note there's the ET3 which is a fantastic sounding unit in its own right, but this is the SE version which has a number of upgraded goodies in it. Was over $5000 new a few yrs back.Has HT bypass which is a great feature.  

I really do have a bit of sellers remorse because only a few weeks ago I purchased a new tube for the preamp on a whim, with the idea that when I need to replace the current tube(which has plenty of life left I'm sure),I won't be in a mad rush buying another.So I did my research and ended up buying a NOS Siemens & Halske ,triple mica disc getter from Munich plant 1973. 

 

In the mean time a pre amp came up for sale which I'd always had an eye on and so I bought it.  Sooo then, the new tube arrives....... and I just had to try it out!!   WOW!!!    The tube Id been using is no slouch.Its a Soviet Reflektor 6N23P-EV worth around $125 but this Siemens just added so much. More depth, width,detail,height,immersion while remaining as smooth as previous one. This is where I had the remorse!!

 

So,new pre shows up and hooked up.  Honestly and truly.....the CJ betters it.However,new pre only has the stock tubes in it and they're ok but theres way better out there I'm sure. So I'm hoping that with some degree of tube rolling I can get new pre to surpass CJ in sound quality.

 

BTW, the new Siemens tube would have 7 - 8  hours on it so I'm calling it new!!  I've put Reflektor tube back in pre but you decide which to go with.I think I know what you'll probably do!

 

Comes with user manual, remote and original box.

Haha. Sooo tempting guys. Of course you're invited. You bring the beers to see us through the session.  

Might be a problem paying for it from the director of finance though😁.

Terrific preamp - i have the same and absolutely love it.  That Siemens has piqued my interest!  The good thing with these pre's is that they only require one valve so rolling is reasonably cost-effective. GLWTS!

      Item Condition: As New Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Rodd Point State: NSW Payment Method: Paypal , EFT or cash on pick-up Reason for selling: Too much hifi gear Further information:
      Gieseler components are very popular on this site because they are widely regarded as performing well above their price point. 
      RRP for this without the Gold Tune enhanced power supply was $2000, so this is about half the original price .
       
      This is a Fein11 despite the case name. This can be checked with Clay Gieseler by email. Serial number 019. DAC is USB input. Comes with remote and Manual. Remote selects the filters which I found valuable in tuning the sound to my taste. 
       
      Condition is perfect

      Item Condition: Like new Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Seaford State: VIC Payment Method: PayPal (plus fees), EFT, Cash Reason for selling: Meze Elites Further information:
       
      It is with a heavy heart that I part with these because despite buying the new Meze Elite, these still hold a place in my heart that my wallet just can't support. That's great news for you though because I can offer these with the full manufacturers warranty. As a reviewer, I was able to purchase these like a retailer would and that means I can sell them to you with a receipt from the date of YOUR purchase to give you full warranty backed by the local distributor and therefore Meze Audio.
       
      What's included:
      Empyreans in copper colour (lightly used) 4-pin XLR cable (brand new - came with the Elites so I swapped the cables so you could have a new one) Leather pads (used, but in good condition as per photos) Alcantara pads (brand new from the Elites - Empyreans and Elites use identical Alcantara pads) Carry case (like new - has been sitting in the shipping packaging since the day I received these  
      Price is firm because I am recouping some of the cost for the Elites

      Item Condition: Used, but with new parts Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is included in price. Suburb or Town: Seaford State: VIC Payment Method: PayPal (plus fees), EFT, Cash Reason for selling: Lack of space Further information:
       
      These are (were?) a wonderful headphone and I was so sad when AudioQuest discontinued the Hawks and Owls. I've been holding onto these as a collectable, but I just don't have the space to keep them and it seems a shame to have them hidden away in their carry case when someone could be enjoying them or displaying them.
       
      These were my daily driver for quite some time and so I arranged new pads and a new headband for them, making them pretty much like a brand new pair.
       
      What's included:
      Leather, padded carry case (and packaging foam as visible in the photos) The headphones 3.5mm solid core silver cable (an outstanding quality cable)  
      If the pads look a little wonky in the images, it's only because they were fresh out of the carry case. They retake their shape within a few minutes.
       
      Finally, I'm unclear on the pricing for these because they're no longer available. I am open to reasonable offers, but won't let them go too cheap because I'd rather keep them than throw them away for peanuts
