  1. Item: Focal Elear Headphones Location: Langwarrin Price: $1150 plus postage and P/P fees Item Condition: Perfect Reason for selling: Trying something else Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Lots of info on these. Replaced my Audeze LCD-3 which were too heavy for extended listening. These are not. Bought new locally. All original packaging. Can supply a nice balanced cable if required. Pictures:
  2. Not only can it do balanced but balanced is necessary to achieve it's full potential. Add a good quality balanced headphone cable and you will have one of the finest DAPs available.
  3. I have used both this and now the updated pro and this represents exceptional value. Highly versatile unit with the SD card input and HDMI output; after all who can read a tiny digital display at more than 3M and know every track played back on their 2TB storage.
  4. Thanks for all the interest. It is subject to audition Saturday 15th. If it is not sold I will PM other interested parties.
  5. Still available.
  6. The Vampire Xhadow connectors alone are worth more than the asking price, and Wywires standard length is 1.2M.
  7. Pickup is in Langwarrin.

    Some feet to get them to the required 50-55mm off the deck, and finally in place playing music. Very happy with the results.

    @mjbmatt Not disappointed with the result at all. In fact I haven't yet opined on the result. You may have misread my initial thread that I built these in response to being disappointed with the previous build just to set the record back on tack.

    Testing the crossovers before fixing front panels. Right hand panel not yet oiled and waxed due to some veneer tearout repairs to be undertaken. Must remember to use some waxed paper over the top next time as the adhesive has a tendency to soak through splits and cracks.

    Crossovers fitted. Enclosures lined and stuffed. Tried Sheeps wool but wasn't satisfied with the consistent density so reverted to teased out polyester insulation. Front panels veneered with mahogany, routed, and rear of openings bevelled.

    It is indeed rubber carpet underlay. It has a herringbone ribbed profile and is glued to the enclosure walls using adhesive of your choice. I use plasterboard/stud adhesive which is an inexpensive acrylic based adhesive. I acquire it gratis from the skip outside my neighbourhood carpet supplier.
  14. Yet another ESL project

    Who wouldn't be proud of a shot like that with the great man, congratulations Jazzman. Frequent visitor to your site and you have inspired me to attempt this build. Anything easier than my Kingsound ESLs to drive would give me would give me a greater choice in amplification. Thanks for sharing.

    Crossovers were next. I like to separate the tweeter, mid and woofer circuit for ease of modifications or upgrades down the track. They neatly sit on top of the mid tunnel, held down with a couple of wing nuts and removable through the top woofer opening. Easy to remove the whole thing for amendments.
