  4. Item: Relisted price drop Carlsson / (Sonab) OA-51 speakers in original woodgrain finish Location: Melb Price: $850 neg Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: Cant see me using them for the forseeable future Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I am a bit of a Sonab Carlsson tragic and its these that got me into it many years ago. I distinctly remember being at a hifi show and walking into a room playing the Bach toccata on pipe organ and it thundering in the room and going really low and looking around for the super sized speakers that could put out that loudness and bass and, it was these. They can play loud and go surprisingly low and throw up a very different soundstage to other speakers and it was 1982. These are designed to be mounted on the wall so you dont need stands so they kind of float and they look very cool with their mid century scandinavian style. I think it would have to be pick up only as I have no idea how to pack them safely or I can drop them off at pack and send They work perfectly and are original although it looks like one driver has been replaced or refurbished. There are some small bits where the veneer has come off and I have tried to photograph these. Overall they still look great. Although I love them, they have sat around for a long time and I cant see myself using them in the forseeable future. There is also a lot of info on the web about these and lots of info about upgrading them with newer drivers. perhaps see the tweeters I am selling also! check out Carlsson planet, Carlsson Kult and you will be well on your way!

  6. ok sounds like you may have an internal problem, maybe someone near you can have a quick look for you. probably best to not open it up unless 100% confident. A small mistake when doing that can be deadly!!. Feel free to ask to see if someone can come and help in this or another new post.
  7. Hi, just need to be 100% sure, did you use the tuner rather than the tt to check? The tt will output (on phono setting) a very low level signal. If that is the case then you can proceed to fuses etc. if that is the case Just make sure the amp is not connected to electricity (ie plugged in). or if not sure get help, no point makng your introduction to hifi lethal.
  8. Oh, and welcome to SNA!!
  9. Sorry to hear of your woes. We all have pressed the shiny red button that says "dont press" at one time. you will need to do a troubleshoot to figure it out. if the turntable input is cactus perhaps use the tuner to check other inputs if you havent already. Make sure things like speaker output on is enabled. The amp appears to have VU meters. Are they moving?
