  6. Hi from jazzdog

    Hi PatChm, I seem to recall Ben Douglas worked at'BJD' - i do not recall his name. Sorry i cannot help with any info on your amp other than tell you that the linear design stuff was, i believe, designed in house,the PCB'S were assembled some where else,and the amps were built in Carlton. I do not recall your particular amp,however,i only worked there for 3 years. Regards, simon

  9. Hello

    Hey Bob,next time in melbourne give me a shout! i am not sure about the bandwidth,however ,the extension on both bass and treble is very good-the bass is particularly good. not sure about their ls3 type,however,i did listen to their hi-end statement speaker-the"excalibur",large,pricey,fantastic
  10. Hello

    @crusader2-the equinox are indeed very transparent,also very versatile-i use them with naim,and find they smooth things out,i also use them with valves with equally good results,even use them with a cheap MF integrated to good effect-i have had a few mates trying to get me to sell-no chance!-my pair have been restored and are keepers. i have also owned 3 pair of talisman 2's fantastic speakers at the price. Anytime you fancy a listen ,just give me a shout. Simon
  11. Hello

    Welcome Bob,the naim crowd is alive and kicking,we just tend to stay quiet and avoid the haters! you have a great pair of speakers there,i have owned a few models and i have a pair of equinox in my collection,they don't get used much,but i will never part with them any naim power supply will make a great upgrade to your naim cd player
  12. @Al.M-Bass drivers were designed by Naim and claimed to be manufactured "in house" Simon
  13. @ rock man,both top and bottom boxes open into each other,so bottom box provides loading for bass.
