  1. Im extremely pleased to communicate to you all I think the issues has now been resolved. 👍 So what's transpired from my last post was that i installed bypass caps on the power supply as suggested however low level distortion remained in one channel [sigh]. Ron (aka Ponytail here on the forum) kindly offered to run it through his noise and distortion meter in an effort to try and determine what's going on and alas the problematic channel instantly revealed itself to show a distortion measurement of nearly 3% @ just a few watts of power so armed with this info I passed it to Mr. Holt
  2. Whatever the ugly speaker you want, first tell your wife you want these and then "settle" on your real choice.
  3. I wonder what the Consequence would be from my wife if I bought these.
  4. We have pet yabbies at home (for kids). Today one escaped from their home and my wife couldn’t find it anywhere. My son suggested maybe have a check daddy’s listening room. Here we go, an audiophile yabbie 😆🦞
  5. Hello folks, I built these BR1s for my youngest daughter and we exhibited them at the last HiFi Show in Melbourne in late 2019 before she took possession. They are built from natural timber [not veneer], Camphor Laurel, and no paint was used, but rather they are finished with multiple applications of oil and bees wax. Cheers, Keith
  6. Though still in pieces ,My babies are coming back home. With some new additions. So this is my room until all the boxes are in situ ready for assembly.
  7. Further information: Bought new from local reseller. Immaculate condition. Box and all accessories.

  8. Further information: These are wonderful speakers and helped put Sonus Faber on the map as a true High End manufacturer. These speakers are absolutely superb in sound and look wonderful. Read Michael Fremer's review (https://www.stereophile.com/floorloudspeakers/139/index.html). The major sonic features of the Amatis are the incredibly warm and detailed sound, refined midrange and treble and deep deep bass. As Michael Fremer said in 1999: "It'll sweep you off your feet with its physical beauty and graceful sonic performance. I'm sorry it costs so much, but this is one expens
  9. Everything is back in position after my DIY painting, and today I finished re-covering the panels black, I was amazed at how much the four panels improved the sound when I put them back up. Unfortunately in a few weeks I’ll have to move all the equipment out so new carpet can be laid 😬
  10. A long wait between updates- after lockup everything seems slower, especially when you can't just let yourself in for a gander after hours! We now have cabinetry, cornicing, interior doors and waterproofing done, ready for tiles then paint and flooring. Looking now like a handover April 23rd.
  11. Hey, my wife asked me today “ is there anything I can do about the bad sound on her mum’s TV cause music is harsh and gives her (my wife) a headache”. Finally some recognition for my HiFi setup 😆 She has tasted the good life and better yet can now appreciate the difference. So proud. Anyone else have a story to share? Cheers
  12. one of the most beautiful turntables ever made - Pioneer Exclusive P3. only produced for Japan market. under its skin - completely isolated from the plinth.
  13. Now I want the real thing! Pink Floyd "Animals" 2016 remaster, Dutch pressing.
  14. Vivid Gaia range but after hearing them I don't care anymore. They are amazing They remind me of the alien from The Fifth Element
  15. Mine this afternoon, starting to look a little cluttered...
  16. Really - an LX550AXII from Japan for only AUD$4880? Secondhand? I would also assume 110v at that. As someone who sells both and has owned both models, as many have said, you need to listen yourself and make your own mind up. I had the Luxman and went over to the Hegel. You will need a step down transformer for the Luxman if 110volt and a big one at that (not something I would be prepared to compromise on given the sonic qualities of this amp). Secondly, as you are prepared to circumnavigate the local industry in favour of saving a few dollars, keep in mind you will
  17. Cheers Hector. I have it and a great album it is. Thanks to @evil c Donald Fagen - The Nightfly Mofi one step release. High standard as you would expect.
  18. Further information: Bit random for here but worth a shot. I felled a large dead eucalyptus in December and have been slowing cutting it into manageable pieces for firewood. My timber pile is full so If you could use some for camping or a fireplace/brazier/whatever let me know. Happy to help load a car or trailer with you. I'm on acreage and have an ongoing supply so if you see this once it's a expired send me a pm and we can find you some more wood. Pickup only.... Photos: P
  19. Pink Floyd. Wish you were here. UK first pressing. 1975
  20. Hello everyone After spending a lot of time and money getting my system sounding great I decided a couple of weeks ago that it was time to turn my back on all that hard work and change things up. My motivators were wanting to simplify my setup, make it more wife friendly and have a dabble with some new tech that might assist overcoming my less than perfect Hifi room. Oh, it would also appear I wanted to spend some more money! 🤦🏼‍♂️ My previous setup was: ps audio p15 power - Antipodes CX/EX - ps audio DSD - ps audio bhk pre - ps audio bhk250 - Spendor d9.2’s. The setup wa
  21. We all have groups we visit other than our home here at SNA. Imagine my absolute surprise to find Quad UK had chosen to highlight my system on their FB page !
  22. It is my firm belief that what women want most for Valentine’s Day is new speakers.
  23. C'mon all, lets have a bit of fun and show us what you think is the ugliest hi fi around. I will start with a ripper new release. new McIntosh MCD85 sacd player
  24. My apologies for the length of this, but I have attempted to cobble together a comparison between Hypex Class D and Holton SS power amplifiers for anyone who may be considering switching from one to the other, as there seems to be very little information on how they compare. You may find my experience useful or just another load of opinions. (Summary of sorts at bottom) HYPEX nCore NC122MP Having used multiple class D Hypex NC122MPs stereo amplifiers with RCA to XLR interconnects for three years. The Auralic Mini source fed the preamp via Aurealis interconnects and the
  25. Pink Floyd ‎– The Final Cut - original German pressing, joining in with Floyd - this cut sounds amazing. the drumming by Nick Mason is so aggressive in parts
  26. I love the straight clean lines of the Luxman integrated amps, plus VU meters help...
  27. Steely Dan. Pretzel logic. US first pressing. 1974.
  28. I think this brand has already been mentioned (Linkwitz?). This just looks like somebody left the lid up. Would have to be very careful with placement, not too close to the bathroom.
  29. So I'm fairly new to this hobby compared to most people on SNA, being only 21, and having not heard of Accuphase before. Roughly 9 months ago, my open box Cambridge Audio Azur 651W killed itself and kept going into protection mode. It took a lot of time and effort just to have this unit serviced. Had to wait a month just for the repair store to receive a service manual, few hours of trouble shooting to trace a blown op-amp. After this happened to me, I knew I wanted to look for a vintage amplifier, something easy to service with plenty of documentation available. I was lucky
  30. Good to have the Holton amp finally singing as it should. Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top) - The Big Bad Blues (2020)
  31. I keep asking my missus if she likes the speakers I see for sale here or Gumtree etc and she keeps saying "you know I don't want any speakers". The other night we listened to heaps of music in my theatre, which sounds absolutely superb even for just music. Then yesterday she was in her room listening to her little pair of speakers ( from an old AIWA Micro system but running from a reasonable AVR and with a sub and they actually sounded better than my old Mordaunt Shorts !!) and she came out and said "when are you getting me new speakers - you know I've been asking for ages " 😛
  32. My wife once told me she can no longer enjoy music anywhere but home.... Sounds rubbish elsewhere apparently
  33. New Audioquest Niagara 5000 and a few AQ power cords. Because you can never have enough clean, quiet power!
  34. Donald Fagen - The Nightfly. 33rpm on Warner Bros. Original '82 US pressing but looking forward to hearing the the MFSL version though @scuzzii This still sounds great and going on to 40 years old too.....................digitally recorded, mixed and mastered and sounds brilliant. @stevoz
  35. I ran a bath for the missus yesterday arvo and put on a few albums that we both like. Laura Marling - Alas I cannot swim Norah Jones - Feels like home. She got out and thanked me and said it was sounding lovely. 😁 Then she sat down for another album. Happy days when the boss is happy. 👍
