    Default Musical Fidelity Tri Vista 21 Tube DAC || A3 CD Player || High-end speaker cables

    Hi all

    My uncle, who loves his AV equipment, moved to Dubai last year, and has given me all of his old kit (that he didn't want anymore).

    My system is no where near able to make use of this stuff, hence, I'm selling it (to fund stuff that would be able to!)

    Please bear in mind that I'm not really sure what to price this at - I'm very much open to reasonable offers.

    First up is a killer duo from Musical Fidelity. A super rare Tri Vista 21 tube DAC, and a A3 CD Player (which has had an upgraded DAC installed I believe).

    Both are in good condition considering their age, and haven't had much use at all for the last 5 years or so.

    There's a little scuff on both on the bottom right hand corner, and the odd scratch. The screws in the polished metal bars sheared off and one of the screws holding the fascia onto the CD player has fallen out. I believe there's a letter of authenticity for one of these - will confirm which one for.

    Both are boxed, but since the boxes have been stored in a garage for many years (not inc equipment), they've become a little rotten.

    They would both make for a very good restoration project.

    The DAC sells for around 600 and above, and the CD player from 50, though unsure on the working condition.

    As far as I could tell, both devices worked when I tested them recently. I connected using CD player -> DAC -> NAD C338 AMP via phono. Have also tried streaming a chrome cast to the DAC and it worked perfectly - locked onto signal as soon as audio played and no issues with cutting out.

    Price: 600 for both collected, due to weight and condition of boxes.





    Cables

    There's a 5m pair of Graves Audio Coalesce (terminated). They're ridiculously heavy, and the 2.4m versions retailed for 1500, so I imagine these were likely 2500.

    Also have a 1m long (I think) Nordost Moonglo 2 coaxial cable. Specs here: -NORDOST MOONGLO 2 DIGITAL PHONO LEADS

    Price: 250 for all collected.


    I'm open to reasonable offers on all of it

    Collection from Farnborough, or, if you wait until September, Loughborough.



    I hope the subliminal messaging works



    More photos available here (and please check for the condition of the items): AV Equipment




    Individual Pricing:

    DAC: 550 - 1200 new
    A3 CD Player: 100 - I imagine >800 new.
    GA Coalesce Cables: 250 - the 2.4m variants were 1500 new, and these are double the length. Essentially, cables don't get any better.
    Nordost Moonglo Coaxial: 30 - 125 new.



    P.S. plants not included

    The retail price of the Tri Vista DAC originally was 1200 not 2500 as stated.

    PM received from Magic with an offer for Coax, which has been accepted.

    DAC and CD Player still for sale, and can now be delivered at buyers cost :-)
