  1. Item: 1pr KEF Ci200QR in-ceiling Flush Mount 8" speakers Location: SAVI Systems Showroom, Bentley, Western Australia Price: $699 for the pair ($1098 srp in Australia) Item Condition: Open Box / Ex-Demo (static display only - not mounted in ceiling) Payment Method: Direct Deposit, Paypal, Cash - Pickup in store, Visa, Mastercard with no fees or penalties. Extra Info: What we have here is a pair of in-ceiling KEF 8" Q series speakers.

Together with the discreet Ultra Thin Bezel (UTB) design, offering the slimmest possible visible rim around the speaker, the Ci Q Series range gives you tremendous freedom to position the speakers where you please.

  2.

Extra Info: Mitchell and Johnson are an English company that started producing Quality Budget Hi-Fi around 5 years ago with the aim of introducing good Hi-Fi for a great price.

  3. The CHORD Mojo sounds great - In my experience it is Punchy, hint of warmth and transparent/detailed across the entire audio spectrum, not just sparkly treble. It also packs a good output stage to drive over ear headphones. There is a reason it has captured so much interest from reviewers within the industry. If there is a shortfall, it is a lack of any analogue inputs - but that doesn't concern me in the slightest. Enjoy whatever you decide to go with
  4. Hi there Trunt, Your Sub should have RCA inputs on the rear, your Yamaha has a sub out on the rear - just connect these with a regular RCA cable (to the Left input on the wharfedale). Your main speakers should definitely plug into Front L + R NOT Surround L+R (that is for rear speakers). As long as the speaker wire is Oxygen Free Copper of around 14AWG it should be fine for your system.
  5.

  6. Item: Elipson Planet L speakers with matching metal Elipson floor stands and Elipson Planet Subwoofer Location: SAVI Systems, 1168 Albany Hwy, Bentley, Western Australia, 6102 Price: $1999 local pick up only Item Condition: very good - ex-demo Payment Method: Direct Deposit, Paypal, Visa, Mastercard with no fees or penalties, Cash - Pickup in store. Extra Info: The striking looking Planet L loudspeaker is the latest in a long line of spherical designs dating back for most of the history of the brand. Elipson says that the shape of the Planet L is the result of years of research into cabinet design. Available in black, white and red, the visual impact of a pair of speakers, each the size and shape of a bowling ball, is such that serious hi-fi or not, the Planet L makes a considerable statement about style. Each Planet L is supplied with a ring that allows it to be placed on a shelf, or table, or technically on a conventional speaker stand. Each Planet L makes use of a 6.5-inch paper driver with a coaxially mounted soft-dome tweeter. A small rear port provides bass re-enforcement and a single pair of binding posts protrudes from the rear. Sensitivity is quoted at 90dB/w with impedance given as six ohms, so while not hugely sensitive, the Elipson ought to provide no real problems for a similarly priced amplifier. Fit and finish is top-notch with flawless paint, a solid-feeling enclosure and magnetic trim tabs for the grille. Any lingering perception that the Planet L is some sort of lifestyle trinket is destroyed shortly after you put some music through it. Placed roughly 20 centimetres from a rear wall with a little toe-in, the speaker shows some star qualities. The coaxial driver arrangement gives it a focus and sound stage that is uncannily accurate and extremely detailed. The Elipson also has a relatively wide 'sweet spot', that means it can produce an appealing presentation over a wider area than is usually the case for speakers of this size. The Planet L is also capable of extracting nuances from recordings that even considerably more expensive speakers can fail to reproduce. Tonality is exceptionally good and it rarely sounds anything other than utterly believable and very assured. The spherical shape is no gimmick either. The Planet L has very little in the way of colouration that can be traced to the cabinet and the bass port is commendably well behaved. NOW IS YOUR CHANCE TO OWN THE UNIQUE ELIPSON PLANET L DOME SPEAKERS (including THE MATCHING METAL FLOOR STANDS AND MATCHING PLANET SUBWOOFER) Pictures:

  10. XLR at 10m is fine - they are designed for pro use where long runs are necessary... I would rather have 10m XLR than any other lead that long. The Parasound equipment is considered top notch within the industry.
  11. I would suggest listening to 2 channel with Audyssey turned off and see how that sounds, as that may be all that is making the sound unsatisfactory.
  12. Why would you presume that? iTunes still only sell 256k aac
  13. Yes, I have found that Tidal often freezes or skips tracks, that the suggested playlists aren't in the same league and variety that Spotify's are BUT Tidal sounds better..... So yes, this could be interesting.
  14. It was the Z Phono I tried as I cannot afford the Halo, I am sure if I heard the Jc Halo it would have kicked ass.
  15. I ended up buying the Primare [emoji3]
