  1. Have the 4K version from the US. Might give this a spin over the weekend.
  2. Hold on, surely you were given a reason as to why its being pulled? Is it just not being made available in Australia or being canned worldwide?
  3. Price drop then off to eBay she goes.

  5. I've never, ever, had a hard-wired network product constantly drop off the network, unless that product itself suffers from 1. Flawed design 2. Being faulty in the first place. As I was testing these in my home AND work network at different times, the conclusion (in my opinion) was they were a POS, when they cant reliably stay on the networks they are connected to, as the chances of having two units at different times, being faulty, would be unlucky. I was testing them for NO OTHER REASON than to bloody own them! They sounded awesome. But I want to spend what little free time I have actually listening to music, not trying to get the product to actually work. Any product has to be judged on the sum of its parts, not "just" because its sounds incredible for the money - why do you think Sonos are so successful? Great that you have no issues, but the I think you're missing the point of this thread - I wasn't aware posting my displeasure in a brand or product would single me out - I have made numerous reference on this forum that all things suggest V2 is greatly improved, but as I have already moved onto better things, I have no desire to move back to the product. Please note I haven't used the word "ever".

  8. Bluesound V1. Particularly the products I tested in my system, the Node and the Vault. Even hard-wired, these would constantly drop off the network for no reason. I read lots of great things about them now (v2), but once bitten, twice shy as they say. Besides, I've moved on to other things. Elac Debut series - always been a huge fan of Elac speakers (even owning a few pairs over the years). cant fathom why these Debut range get the praise they do, the Line 70 (German-designed models) series eat them for breakfast!
  9. The Oppo 105D as a pre-amp would be the one to seek out, as al pointed out above.
  10. Was a great movie. Excellent sound design and soundtrack. Holding out for the 4k release.

  13. There is a cheaper range coming from Sonus faber (Principia), but they are not replacements for the Venere range. In fact, the Venere range is being replaced later in the year with all construction and design being handled in Italy, not China. Huge fan of ELACs, have owned a few over the years. The new UniFi Slim bookshelf are very impressive, and a proper 3-way thanks to their concentric design. But I am much more a fan of the traditonal ELAC design with the JET tweeter. The Paradigm 15B are an incredible speaker for their size (and they are tiny!)
  14. The Bronze 6 would be a good match for the CXA, but of course this is where the ability to hear the combination would ultimately be the ideal scenario.
