  3. Mac mini late 2012 Great condition $950 Pretty much mint (its just been sitting there). Bought this from someone in 2014 when it was 6 months old. Has run flawlessly ever since, not a hiccup. In 2015 I put a Samsung 850 Pro 512GB SSD in it alongside the original 1TB spinner. Supports dual monitors. No box. Its just been wiped and has a fresh install of OSX Sierra. Fantastic computer for photo editing, music production or day to day use. Theres one without the SSD on eBay at the moment with a bid at $740 so ill ask for $950 and see how I go - its not a cheap drive. Otherwise on the bay it goes.

  5. @petng PM'd you. Live in Melbs
  6. Hi everyone, Im possibly about to pick up some Omega or Hoyt Bedford speakers depending on how this week pans out and to say theres a plethora of choices is an understatement. Im a bit lost. These are high efficiency speakers around 93-97db so id say maybe 5+ watts minimum. The builder Louis recommends 7+ is optimal. I listen to lots of acoustic jazz, rock and hip hop but also complex orchestral passages on occasion. My partner listens to quite a bit of pop and deep house as well and since these are going in the lounge I'd say i need to be able to cover the range. After having a bit of a look around the internet I'm seen a few options. I've read that Omegas prefer push pulls over SET but thats third hand info. I'm looking at the First Watt J2 (if i can find one), the Trafomatic Aries and am interested in Earle Westons amps. Aesthetically they suit the Omegas and he's got a good reputation here but its hard to see where his amps sit by reading through the forums. Are they competitive with Decware? Audio Note? Are they fast enough and tight enough in the bass for modern electronica? I would like to support local and have support i can trust though, that would be a positive. As for flavour, I prefer treble air / sparkle and an expansive, holographic soundstage about most other descriptors. Clean and musical bass would be a plus and just a touch warmer than neutral suits me. With that being said, I know full rangers aren't known for their treble extension. Thus an audition this week. But really I don't know what I'm talking about and ill take any and all suggestions. Less than $2000 would be great, happy to buy used. Could stretch to $2500 if it'll change my life.
  7. Hey @keitha I've sent you a PM. Very interested in the HB. Will probably take them pending an audition. Alex
  8. Those ones for sale are the reason i want to try some
  9. Hi everyone, Id love to demo some Omegas or any other full rangers but Krispy in Sydney seems to be the only retailer. Word on the street here is i really should try them before diving in. Any members got a setup at home or perhaps know of an audio store with one? I would pay in audio chat and beers! Alex
  10. Hey mate really interested but live in Melbourne. Any idea what freight would be like?
  11. Item: Bower & Wilkins P7 wireless headphones Location: Melbourne Price: 450 Item Condition: Mint Reason for selling: Too many headphones, mostly just use IEMS Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: As new with all accessories and box, bought a few months ago in Melbourne.

  12. Item: ECP Torpedo III headphone amp + Mundorf caps / Cinemag OPTs Location: Melbourne Price: 1300 firm Item Condition: Mint Reason for selling: Too much travelling Payment Method: Pickup or post Extra Info: Built this T3 with both major upgrades. Its had a small amount of use (it works!) and there are lots of impressions around the web. I think it sits at around the Eddie Current ZDS level, definitely a big step up from most Woo or Cavalli products in raw SQ. I have it listed at 1300 which is below the raw cost to me. Comes with stock tubes. Email me at waugh.alexander@gmail.com please. Pictures:
