  2. I've been to Chris' and heard these speakers. Best sound I've ever heard. This is great price and 250ti's are so rare in Aus.. Damn! wish I had the funds
  3. it might be likely too with pickup only
  4. JBL L150A Starting at $850 http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Speakers-JBL-L150A-/222463648938?hash=item33cbdde4aa:g:xPkAAOSwc-tY5Cjf
  5. How about naming them after German cities or towns. Berlin, Leipzig, Hamburg, Mannheim etc.. similar to what Mytek did with NY boroughs (Brooklyn, Manhattan) Or Sirene (siren - sea nymphs who, by their seductively enchanting songs, lure sailors to their destruction)

  8. What are the bridged mono numbers?
  9. Second hand Usher Mini Dancer 2? might be a few around in your area. Manufacturer is based in TW
  10. Thanks peter, hadn't seen that video yet. Having a good read of this thread now: http://www.computeraudiophile.com/f10-music-servers/novel-way-massively-improve-sq-sms-200-and-microrendu-31110/
  11. @petersv @tastimp Hey guys I read that the sms-200 is able to accept 6.5 to 14Vdc and comes with a 9V 2A supply. Tastimp, how did you arrive at 12v? Did Clay test your device? I know Sbooster also make an lpsu rated at 12Vdc https://www.sbooster.com/botw-pp-eco-12v-132v/sotm-sms-200 Peter, why did you decide to run it on the Ultracap LPS-1? I'm reading that it can only handle 7Vdc 1.1-1.2A max The SOtM mBPS-d2s is 6Vdc - 9Vdc 1.5A.
  12. I don't know why. The quote is the recommendation on their website.
  13. If you plan on testing with Klei cables, don't forget that you need to wait for the cable to settle for at least 1hr....
  14. ~$930 Including heatsink Same price as the NAKSA 80. And I think $120 for a 3m aluminium case pre-drilled to fit the module.
