  1. Item: Swift GK1 pre amp Location: Richmond VIC Price: $1500 Item Condition: Reason for selling: Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Swift GK-1 - a bit of a legend hereabouts. designed and built by Hugh Dean with wood sides, grey enamelled top with reflective mirror behind the tubes. Hugh did a limited run of these before deciding that making a commercial product (as opposed to supplying kits) was too stressful. I think they were around $4k. It has a remote. This is an EOI at the moment - another pre I would like might become available. Pictures: if you're interested pm me. http://members.optushome.com.au/russcb/products_preamp_swift.html
  2. Hi how about these? I'm getting bigger speakers shortly so wouldn't mind trading for bigger top plates. Let me know - I'll take some pics http://www.eposltd.com/shop/speaker-stands/st35/ Height (without spikes) 56 cm Total Height (with top and bottom spikes) 58.5 cm Bottom plate size 28 x 25 cm Top plate size 17 x 15.5 cm
  3. I've got one of these - clip it to your rack, very flexible. http://www.ikea.com/au/en/catalog/products/60315648/ glass of tap water, if yer lucky.
  4. A few years ago I did a lot of fiddling around with sorbothane pads, rubber feet, direct on floor, spikes, no spikes - on my suspended timber floor. The best result was with spikes on 5 ct coins, a smidge better ( ie focused bass) than 2nd place. 2nd were hard rubber furniture footers from Bunnings stuck to bottom of speakers - they cost a couple of bucks. They also had the major advantage that moving the speakers was easy and quite safe for the floorboards.
  5. I think spikes and 5 ct coins are all you need. I usually put a bit of blue tack between spike and coin solely to hold coin in place when I move the speaker - no sonic reason. Never between coin and floor. I really can't see what all the other stuff does - keep it simple
  6. It is indeed. But there comes a time in every rebel's life when it's time to take stock, reassess and reject the foolish energies and principles of youth - when that happens there are the Eagles ready and waiting to fold you into their warm and comforting nostalgic embrace. its actually not a bad song.
  7. Wikipedia says :' in 1998 a reader's poll conducted by Guitaristmagazine selected the guitar solos on the track "Hotel California" by Walsh and Don Felder[4] as the best guitar solos of all time.' surely, pulina, you're not questioning the taste of the readership of an august publication such as 'guitarist'!
  8. Everyone knows the Eagles were genius - listen to that ripping guitar on hotel California and tell me that's not right at contemporary music's bleeding edge. And all those fm stations can't be wrong. Sorry for any offence. I was put up to it by @ericd
  9. Yes, thanks. I was just looking at those and checking out some reviews.
  10. @ericd What are you doing listening to this dullwitted west coast balderdash?
  11. Can it be biwired? That's the deal breaker.
  12. Item: Dynaudio C1 or similar Price Range: $4k ish Item Condition: Used Extra Info: currently using floorstanders but would like something more appropriate to the room. I'm interested in dynaudio c1, B&w 805 - something around that level. I'm in Richmond, Vic. Prefer local seller. What have you got?
