Melbourne (Australia) - Hi-End Hi Fi store recommendations please ?
I'm back after a coming out of hiberation lol. I visited Melbourne last year and had the time of my life. What I ran out of time was to locate any hi fi stores that stocked the hi end-ish equipment. I'm lookin around for a suitable pre amp and CD player that would do justice to my Xindak 8800 power amps
There has to be surely some shops somewhere in Melbourne that sell something at least more hi end than the Harvey Normans and the Myers.
Please help me out, thanks

Xindak XA8800MNE Mono Block Power Amplifier
Cambridge Audio 840E Pre Amplifier

Person to talk to is Damien Neilan, they know me personally since 2005. Talk to them regarding your requirements with a good honest intention, and you'll get good service! They stock all the great stuff, from Conrad Johnson, Quad, McCormack, Weiss, Naim, Vandersteen, Jas Audio etc, check out their website: www.caxtonaudio.com.au
It all depends on what your budget is, Damien will have it!
I bought my entire system from them, and have insured it for 60 grand!
I've got all conrad johnson amplification and Quad ESL 2905 electrostats, all cables & interconnects are DHLabs, power conditioners, and magnetic field stabs from Nordost, including all specialized power cords front to back are all from Sound Ref. Great store, great people and they KNOW their stuff!
You won't be able to just walk into their store though, you have to call prior to your visit and make an appointment. Do that first and you will be respected.
All the best and have a good one!
Cheers, Raj J
If you go to Melbourne (home of burson audio), you can audition Burson amps. They give you a 30 day trial period...a nice chance to try the PRE-160 (preamp)
Just a thought, good luck.
