  1. @dr-wyas Not to hijack a thread, but I have a pair of these to sell as well. I'll provide details once dr-wyas confirms his sale
  2. @Suopermanni I'll take 'em, PM on way
  3. @aertex Great topic aertex, I will be very interested in the results. I will be in the market in the next couple of months for some new speaker cables, and both brands, together with Cameron at Krispy, will be in my considerations. From a comparison perspective, unfortunately I only have Aurealis balanced interconnects, Audio Principe power cables, and Krispy speaker cables. Any comparison using my cables will be next to useless. However, based on what I have, I would say Aurealis and Krispy are ahead of Audio Principe on build and parts quality.
  4. I had some Red Dragon 1000 monos. XLR input only, but Ryan gave me some rca converters. They were excellent, but the project I was going to use them for never came to fruition. Ice power modules well implemented. These would be a great buy for the right speakers, as mentioned in the quote from Ryan. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. Fantastic checklist, thanks @Al.M
  6. Thanks EV I wasn't actually contemplating new, just something 5years old or less, rather than 15. I'm just interested in different opinions or thoughts on the issue. I'm a big fan of buying second hand, most of my gear has been second hand, demo or run out. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. When considering second hand speakers, how old is too old? I'm not referring to the classics or iconic speakers here, rather solid to high end speakers that were very advanced and/or well regarded for their day, but have subsequently been superseded. My apologies for all the (hopefully) thought provoking questions. At what point do you start thinking that money may be better spent on more current speakers utilising more recent technology? It's very difficult to directly compare such speakers with more modern ones, and next to impossible to get comparative opinions. For example, would a speaker first launched 15 years ago that was highly regarded then still be considered at the same level today? How long before natural deterioration in materials in the speaker start to set in? What is the useful life of a speaker? It's got me going round in circles....
  8. Second one from the same JB purchase. Courtney brought a smile to my face and a tap to my foot from the first track Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. Bought a vinyl copy of Boy & Bear Limit of Love at JB a while back on sale, purely based on SNA comments. Finally put it on while sipping on a TGIF brew........loving it! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. @Unsound If you decide to separate, I would be interested in the Curious 0.8m USB cable. Thanks
  11. I'll go back up if BaCang falls through Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. I've had one of these for a few years and it never disappoints. Use it to listen at work, driving a pair of Audio Technica ATH-ESW9's, although I understand it can drive much more difficult cans than the AT's.
  13. Thanks @Sime , I will give that a crack tonight and see how I go
  14. New to Tidal, and new to my Aurender. Has anyone been able to play these Masters versions through an Aurender? If so, any tips for me? I can't find them using the Aurender app when searching through Tidal, and I don't know of any other way to look Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. Gotta be quick. The 4 I wanted were gone in 3 posts! Sent from my HTC 2PS6200 using Tapatalk
