  2. Blues Currently Spinning

    Great recommendation. This is a great place to discover new music. Listen on Spotify then buy online. Love local too!
  3. So, I bought a pair of LS50s...

    After buying the Usher Mini Diamonds 2 from SNA member Concha earlier in the year I needed to upgrade my amp from the Marantz Pearl Lite (yes the amp that Cafad came to loathe!). I purchased an MF M6si (220w) and it certainly has done the job with the Ushers. Yesterday I brought my XQ 20's out from the spareroom as I will have to get around to moving them on. I hooked them up to the M6 and it was like WOW. They loved the current and watts delivered to them. They really were not too far from the Ushers in my living room which is on the smallish side with just a little less bass. The clarity and staging was certainly mindblowing for these 52 year old ears. I have read so much about the LS50 and have always been somewhat curious as to how they compared to the XQ20?
  4. Great Buys on eBay Continued (Part 5) ...

    Same seller. Relisted due to a time wasting bidder. Please ONLY bid if you fully intend to complete the purchase. And an unhappy one at that!
  5. Keen on the cables. Bought Cocha Blowas Usher Dancer 2's leading to Marantz Pearl Lite trade on MF MS6si so figured that the Bunnings cables need to go the same way.
  6. Blakey your inbox is full. Tried to pm you
  7. Standmount Speaker Upgrade Help Please

    Thanks Cafe I contacted Morley. They do stock Usher but have none in at the moment. Was looking at front ported speakers due to needing to be close to the wall. Has anyone had experience with the Kef's?
  8. Standmount Speaker Upgrade Help Please

    Hi All Have been a member for around 18 months and found this site to be a wealth of information and entertainment. As a result of SNA I purchased a pair of Usher S520 speakers for my lounge room set up and was stunned by their performance (thank you Mr Darko and twwen2). I run them through a Marantz KI Pearl Lite Amp and SACD combination, bought around the same time at $1200 each. (I know Cafad a bit warm but at the after reading the review in Aus HiFi felt it would be a good match for the SACD player and the price just seemed right). I run a Squeezebox and stream through the DAC on the Marantz. I have an Aaron sub from a no longer used 5.1 set up running as B speakers, (Cables are Bunnings) Although I had already promised SWMBO that this would end my quest for audio I now would like to upgrade the speakers. I really am not yet in a position to change up the electronics (too many other "last purchases" yet to be offloaded) so am looking for a match to my current set up. My room is 4.5m x 3.5m with speakers on the long wall. My listening position puts me about 3m from the speakers which are on stands close to the wall. Looking at spending around 2k. Have really liked the Ushers and was looking at the new Dancer Mini X Diamond reviewed in Aus HiFi. Have recently seen KEF XQ 20 at a good price ($1399) amongst others. I listen to a wide variety of music ( love the Music Forum for expanding the horizons!!!!). Being from Perth listening to speakers is limited. Would love to hear your thoughts on this, Was in General but thought this was a more appropriate forum. Sorry about the double post mods.
