Amplifiers & Preamplifiers

Rotel RTC-970 Tuner/Preamp

img 3754

This tuner/preamplifier supports five channels, though you can use it as a stereo tuner and preamplifier in almost any system, so it is very flexible. Use it as a tuner, use it as a preamp, or both!

This almost pristine example comes with a new mains plug, original remote control and owner’s manual. Here is the owner’s manual in PDF.

Cassette Decks

CD Players & DACs

Perpetual Technologies P-3A DAC + Monolithic Sound Outboard Power Supply

Wow, check out this recently serviced duo! This lovely DAC and power supply pair can be used together, or the DAC can be used with its own supplied power supply.

img 4031

Either way, they make a compelling pair, especially given that the Perpetual Technologies DAC has received the well-regarded Modwright modifications, expensive in their own right.

img 4032

The P3-A DAC was very well regarded and reviewed when it launched in 2001. You can read what Stereophile thought about it, but in a nutshell, they found it to be one of the best-measuring DACs they had ever tested.

img 4033
The Modwright mods are not something I really care about, because I know exactly what they are. But, if you have to pay for these, they would be more than the cost of the DAC, so the included value is significant.
img 4034
The external power supply is actually quite impressive.
img 4035
Not a bad effort, someone cared about how this power supply turned out

This classic vintage DAC and power supply are a one local owner pair, in original boxes, with paperwork. Yes, rare indeed.

Sold together for just $450.


NOS Raytheon JAN 5703WB ‘Trivistor’ Vacuum Tubes

Many will have seen my articles and videos on the iconic Musical Fidelity Tri-Vista 21 Tube DAC. If you need a set of 5703WB vacuum tubes for yours, look no further.


I have 50+ – now approx 30  Raytheon 5703WB vacuum tubes available for sale, all from the same production batch. This is the mil-spec, 50+G rated triode tube used in the class-A output buffer of the Tri-Vista 21, Tri-Vista SACD Player, the Tri-Vista 300 Integrated Amplifier and others.

All were manufactured in December 1979.

This batch of NOS Joint Arm Navy Raytheon 5703W tubes was made in December 1979 and is a rare find. Good examples like these rarely come up for sale. Many I’ve seen are later examples, in tatty boxes, sometimes even used! Remember, with NOS tubes, the older the better, generally speaking.

The boxes are perfect

All boxes are intact and in excellent to perfect condition. All tubes are NOS, never used, in perfect condition.

Priced at just $25 AUD per tube. Remember, these NOS tubes are all from the same 12/1979 production batch.


Grab a pristine NOS set for your Musical Fidelity Tri-Vista 21 or other projects whilst these early-date code units are available. Keep them tucked away for when you need them – if you own equipment that uses them, you will eventually need to replace them.

Ultra-Rare Pair of Genuine, NOS Yamaha NS-1200 / JA3120 Woofer Re-Cone Kits!

Genuine parts like these never, EVER come up and this is likely the only pair of genuine Yamaha NS-1200 JA3120 woofer re-cone kits available IN THE WORLD! Given that I don’t own NS1200s, I need to move these re-cone kits on to someone who does.

Yamaha NS-1200
Original Yamaha part number and description.
Yamaha NS-1200
I know you’re wondering: “Mike, how do you even own these?” It’s a long story but look at these pristine beauties!

This pair of re-cone kits will repair and renew the cones, spiders, voice coils and surrounds of JA3120 woofers. If you own NS-1200s and want to re-cone your JA3120 woofers, the only way to do it is with genuine parts like these. When professionally installed, it’s basically like having a new driver. The woofers cannot retain their original Theile-Small characteristics unless you use genuine parts, meaning they will never sound the same unless genuine parts are used.

These genuine Yamaha re-cone kits come in their factory original boxes and include cones, surrounds, voice coils, spiders and braids. The boxes retain their original foam support material, meaning shipping should be safe, though insurance is a must on something like this.

Yamaha NS-1200
All Yamaha, all original, wow! You can see from these images that everything is in perfect condition, even the boxes!
Yamaha NS-1200

This is a set of two genuine Yamaha re-cone kits, in original factory packaging, and perfect, original condition. They have never been used, so voice coils and everything else are perfect. There will likely never be another pair of these for sale, so if you own a pair of Yamaha NS-1200s and want to refresh the woofers, or if you have JA3120 woofers that need repair, this is perhaps your last chance to do it properly.

NOTE: I’ve had requests for dimensions etc, but this is like asking someone to measure a 195/65R15 tyre or an NGK BKR6E spark plug. If you own NS-1200s and need JA3120 re-cone kits (or that tyre or spark plug), then the only thing left is to purchase them if the price is right. If you have other motivations, I cannot assist.

The price for these otherwise unobtainable re-cone kits is $1000 AUD for the pair, plus shipping and insurance where applicable. These are NOS parts, in perfect, factory original condition. Given their age, they are, of course, sold as-is and cannot be returned.

Get in touch if you have any questions about purchasing this pair of re-cone kits.
