    Item: Orpheus Aurora 3 floor standers Location: Mosman Price: 650 Item Condition: used, good Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal +3% or as friend, COD Only Extra Info: These are the original Aurora 3's from the well known Australian audiophile speaker manufacturer Orpheus who have continued to make this model until recently, albeit with some cabinet and driver changes along the way. Orpheus speakers are renowned for built quality and finish and these will definitely not disappoint. They have been given a light rub to remove the original polyurethane and have had a special blend of organic timber oil applied with a final rub of beeswax to leave a soft and velvety feel. Spec wise these are a very efficient 3 way speaker at 92db and are 4 ohm rated. These should make them well suited to small single-ended triode valve sets. Pick up from Mosman 2088. At about 20kg each, will consider interstate transport only via pack,n,send if no local interest. Pictures: PO00020523.pdf

    Here's my 'rather simple' setup - Meridian DSP5000s in stereo, with a DAP feeding digital music. The DSPs have inbuilt amplification and DAC

    You’re absolutely right. I can’t stand the thought of people enjoying music and collaborating on their favourite genres in a substandard file format. It really should be banned.

    I listen to music. Music that moves me. Music that educates me. Classical, jazz, pop, jpop kpop, svea pop, anything really. Spanish, Portuguese, French, any where we travel to. Greenland rock? I listen through a two channel stereo system. Our system has evolved over the years. Valves, solid state, combination of the two. Bi-polar loudspeakers, or moving coil? Loved the Maggie 2Cs but bass deficient. Many iterations. Still with moving coil. Now a system that fits our needs. Financially and sonically. We can afford lots more but choose not to. The mortal sins of avarice, greed, et al, come to mind. The reality is the pleasure you derive from the listening. Listen to audio quality or the soul of the music? The quality and decay of the cymbal in the nth bar of that song? Or the musicality and spirituality of a particular reading of a specific concerto. Nat King Cole vs Michael Buble? Doris Day? Rosemary Clooney? Dinah Washington? Ella? We attend at the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra as subscribers through each year. We buy lots of CDs. Classical, jazz, pop, et al. Why? Just because we can. So where do we stand today? Sounds or the soul of music? No offence, but this is a discussion that needs to be had? Music or the mechanics there of? Any 2c's worth considered. Lets talk turkey and the cost of the Rolls Royce! Paul R

    Dear forum members, I have made the decision over a long time to merge both the StereoNET Australia and New Zealand websites. While I always felt that NZ deserved its own place on the web for Hi-Fi, it is clear to me from our analytics that a vast amount more NZ residents are utilising the AU forums than the NZ ones anyway. With that said, the new combined site will cater specifically for both regions, and articles will include both relevant info (pricing/distributor details etc) for both regions. No content or accounts will be lost in the merger. The end result is a much bigger, more active website that specifically caters to both AU and NZ readers. I hope you will understand that I have made this decision with the reader's best interests in mind, in the long term. The affable Gary Pearce will still carry on as NZ Editor and man on the ground, and we have every intention of covering all relevant NZ events and industry related news etc. Your account will be carried over to the combined forum site. Where you already have an account on both forums, these can be very easily merged into one with no data or history loss.

Comes with remote, standard analogue boards and extra HPC Optical Input/Output Board DIO-ST1 boards like this - 570 euro boards It was run with the P1000 power amp that was also for sale here FOR $16000 - P1000 & DC330 Pictures: To follow

    As a cabinet maker i think it would be under $2K. It is actually a straightforward job...you are just veneering two sides and the top I imagine. Flat planes. I qualify regarding the availability of american oak though I know all types of veneers are available so need not be oak if you wish. Teak? Red cedar? Rosewood? All options. I do not know if they had a foam/cloth front and the costs involved therein. A specialist kitchen builder would have all the necessary equipment and ability. Could be less than a 1K.

    My father is in the process of making a 2 way with the dayton dt250p and dayton h812 horn. He hasn't finished but on a trial run he said that he was very happy (i was not there) both very cheap and easily accessible in Australia. As Dave said you will want to set your xo to where the directivity od you 12" matches the dispersion of the horn. For r my father that's at roughly 1200 hz with a 12" peerless sls

    https://www.analogue.co/mega-sg/ One of these is shipping to me right now. But the 2.4g wireless controllers are on backorder with Amazon, so it may be a few weeks before I can even play it! Analogue Co have recreated both the SNES and Sega Megadrive on the FPGA level, bit for bit, which results in the games running and working perfectly. All previous clones of these old consoles use software emulation and have never been pleasant to use. Sonic is stuttery and laggy...

    My newly rebuilt JLTi hybrid amp in a Yaqin MC-100B chassis. Joe Rasmussen's most recent development. The input tubes (12AT7) and driver tubes (6550) have been eliminated (the ones still visible are only for show), replaced by a unique circuit based around transformers and Darlington Pairs of transistors. The KT-120 power tubes have been replaced by a completely new circuit based around "fat bottle" 6CA7 tubes. The switch at the front selects whether the amp operates as a power amp or an integrated. In either mode its performance is astonishing. I cannot recall hearing more lifelike music from a sound system. Waiting on Herbie's top-of-line Hal-O III tube dampers for the 6CA7 tubes. This is what Herbies says about their Hal-O III dampers: "HAL-O III brings out the best potential in extremely hot-running audio rectifiers, power tubes and other sensitive vacuum tubes subdues heater-generated vibrations and common microphonics, allowing a truer rectified current and truer amplified signal tube output will be more musical, more energetic and less vague while maintaining your system's unique nature and character with spring-tempered titanium C-ring and annealed titanium isolation pads ideal for extremely hot-running tubes - able to handle continuous tube heat in excess of 1000° F (538° C) My JLTi-reengineered Eastern Electric MiniMax Vacuum Tube Phono PRE-Amplifier. Joe Rasmussen radically redesigned the circuit removing most caps from the signal path using Jantzen z-Superior bypass caps correcting and splitting the RIAA equalisation between input and output stages adjusting the gain profile of each of the two gain stages, to allow a 12AT7 to replace the 12AX7 in the critical 1st stage, for a dramatic drop in noise and increase in musicality improving the power supply electronics with better caps resolving intermittent hum problems to morph this quite good MC/MM phono stage into an outstanding one. The Mullard 6X4 rectifier, Raytheon 12AT7WA amplification-stage-1 tube, and Mullard ECC83 stage-2 tubes, also make a huge difference to the sound of this terrific phono preamp. Note the Herbie's Tube Dampers on all the tubes. They do a remarkable job of eliminating ringing and microphony, without dulling the sound of the tube. The damper on the 6X4 rectifier tube is designed to dissipate extra heat from tubes such as rectifiers, which get particularly hot. My recently acquired Chinese G&W T-2.6F tube headphone amp. The stock Electro Harmonix 6922EH are OK, but I rolled Russian 1974 Reflektor 6N23P tubes in their place, and the result is a world better! My system, including this tube gear, will be profiled and auditioned at Sydney Audio Club's August 18 meeting. Attendees will be provided with exclusive discount codes for Herbies Audiolab dampers, AntiCables cords, and Doge tube amplifiers, direct from their manufacturers.

    Moved the Krell S-300i and just placed an EC 4.7 in as the pre. Awaiting conversion of the pre-power interconnects to XLR... but OMG... the speakers have now completely vanished.
