  1. A long-awaited feature request by many members is nearing completion. As you know advertisements automatically expire after 14 days if not marked as Sold. Once the new feature is implemented, a new button will appear on Expired Ads, that says "Repost Ad". This will automatically take you to the editor window with all content pre-filled from your previous ad. You then have the ability to repost your ad without having to retype the ad content from scratch. I hope to be able to activate this feature in the coming days - we're in final stages of testing.

  3. I am a complete computer idiot, I didn’t even own one till eleven years ago when I met my wife. Took me another bunch of years to work out how to surf the web, eventually I discovered SNA. A little later I attended my first GTG here in Adelaide, met some folk and we started doing the rounds of each other’s houses. In the old days meeting fellow enthusiasts was via chance meetings at hifi shops or shows. Fast forward to today and the Adelaide ‘mob’ are in constant contact, endlessly enjoying each other’s equipment. The real value however is in the friendships we have f

  5. Recently after quite a while away from speaker building i started this project during my Christmas Holiday Break from teaching. I have now completed the Build, but will continue to tweek crossover until I feel i am there. it was quite a challenging build for one living in a regional town in the New England. I did have trouble sourcing materials but came up with some solutions that were not quite as good but did the job in the end. I am absolutely happy with the end product, even though its not exact but i did take elements from the differing models for the last 20 years so as to

  6. The belts have arrived but I can’t seem to get the speed bang on. I think that it may be a 50hz pulley, maybe it wasn’t used with an SDS before. The SDS puts out 60hz, will wait for the new 300rpm motor and pulley to arrive. I have temporarily set it up on the base that I’ve made. She is certainly a beast. Will look good when I’ve finished the feet.

  7. Chance of a lifetime ? You can't 'un-hear' what these headphones are capable of. Australian purchased - single owner since new. Mint condition - includes special shipping crate, remote control and all paperwork. Has had very light use only. Available for demo in Perth, WA to potential buyers. Happy to consider shipping - will work with the buyer on the most secure method. I am a Sennheiser dealer - but this item is from my private collection and a private sale (it was purchased prior to becoming a dealer). Reason for selling: I am completely reconfiguring

  8. Very rare - factory piano black finish pair of these iconic speakers. The finest speakers I have ever heard, let alone owned. Replacement value (RRP) in the order of A$250K. Mint condition - as new - include special shipping crates - have had very light use only. Come with extra grills, spikes etc. Available for demo in Perth, WA to potential buyers. Happy to consider shipping - will work with the buyer on the most secure method. Reason for selling: I am completely reconfiguring my set-up (see forthcoming adverts for some other amazing gear) -

  11. So I’m still waiting on some belts to arrive, ordered on the 1st of December. The feet that I ordered have arrived but I’m not happy with them so have just sourced some other feet and I’m going to pull the welder out and fab something to make them work. I have started on a base for the TNT to sit on . I have used some floorboards I had and laminated them to some mdf with a layer of wavebar in between. Solid jarrah edging all round. Definitely not perfect but it will do the trick. 👍 This will then be sitting on some Isoacoustics Stage 1 isolators.

  14. Further information: I've owned this pair of Tannoys for about 3 years. These have the DC386 drivers/crossovers, also known as Arden's mkII or 3828, built into beautifully crafted Arundel cabinets with the cork finished front baffle. The cabinets have a square cross section which achieves the same volume as the original Arden mki including the bass reflex port, I know this as I measured both for comparison purposes. The roll surrounds were replaced by Tom Manning from SpeakerBits in 2018 with the correct, genuine surrounds as can be seen from the pictures, you won't have to wor

  15. Finished the feet this weekend. Have come out ok, to be honest I’m not really happy with the finish but was really over it. Functionally they work really well. I cut down some steel tube and welded a bottom on so I could then fix them to the threaded feet. I then filled the tube with resin to hopefully stop resonance and used some bushes to locate the springs. The springs are genuine from a TNT. I have also fixed the tonearm base off and have begun setup of the arm and cartridge I’m just waiting on the alignment jig to complete. Also still waiting on the new motor and pulley to

  18. I think that’s rather harsh. If MQA makes the claim that they bring you closer to what the artist intended and the whole chain is “authenticated”, then they’d better actually do that. Neil Young says they aren’t, so I think he is absolutely entitled to arc up about it.

  23. I picked these up nearly a year ago and they have been rocking the workshop in between cameo visits from other speakers. First of all these are one hell of a speaker that kind of slip under the classic radar and get little love over here until you hear them. I have many visitors that are gob smacked that they are just stock running off a good DAC and humble 80's Yamaha. They are hard to find but go reasonably cheap, the tweeters have a tendency to blow and meant to be a ***** fix (or impossible) I probably shouldn't drive mine so hard. Yet to hear the 66's but they are meant to be better again

  24. Further information: I bought these from SNA exactly year ago and they haven't moved and used sparingly. The best speakers I have ever owned and if not for the TADs enticing me, I was planning to keep them for a while. They are in a very good condition and I have shown an imperfection on the paper the speaker has been wrapped with in one place, which is superficial. These are less than 30 months old. I have blurred the Serial numbers intentionally. If the TADs sell before these, then I will take these off sale. Priced for a quick sale.

  25. Further information: The Air Force III from TechDAS set a new standard in the entry to ultra-high-end category for turntables. TechDAS made worldwide news with the release of their Air Force 1 Turntable. At around $100,000+, it's not for the faint-hearted. Then came Air Force Two, a scaled down version with loads of the technology of its bigger brother. The news though that an 'affordable' turntable from the Japanese turntable manufacturer, still retaining much of the qualities of the higher range, but at much more affordable price was welcomed by analog enthusiasts. Air Force II

A friend of a friend rescued some of his Dads Hi Fi gear from long time storage, there was a Sansui 555a and this 1229 which had never been in a plinth and as far as the old man could remember was only played a hand full of times and then repacked in the original box and stowed in the wardrobe back in the early seventies. Had the original plans 1:1 that I traced onto butchers paper and transferred onto some 18mm Euro Birch plywood and cut out with a jigsaw I wanted a black deck but also wanted to see a bit of grain sneak through, a lot of black stains have

  29. Further information: I love these speakers! Best I've owned. Transparency of ribbons immediacy and scale of horns! RRP in 2010 was A$100k+++ I imported them from the USA where they were on passive display in an ultra high-end audio store. I have owned a very wide range of gear such as Tannoy Westminster Royals and Kingdoms, Maggie 20's, Quad 2905's, Sonus faber Extrema's, Genesis 2's, Jamo R909's and many more and these stand alone at the top of the pile! I do have boxes and can put on a pallet for safe transport (They break down into 3 segments per side). They have an out

  30. First world problems. If vinyl is too expensive for you, go and pay $15 per month on a streaming service. If vinyl and sound quality actually means something to you - browse carefully and buy vinyl. I still get as much joy now as I did 40 years ago as a 15 year old buying new release albums on vinyl. Compared to 40 years ago, vinyl is cheap if you buy within your means and Refuse to feed the vermin, called Flippers all is good. Even today there is more great vinyl available to buy than I have hours in the day to listen.

  34. Further information: Up for sale is a mint condition pair of the ATCSCM50ASL. Purchased in June this year from the Australian Dealer. Current RRP is $26,000. Reviews are all over the net, and as they say, once you go active speakers, you never again want to go back to passive. Although a stand mount design, they have a dynamic range and sheer effortless way they present music unlike any other passive speaker I have owned. That list includes the ATC40A, ProAc D48R & Spendor D9. Anyone looking for brand new ATC speakers now, need to factor in a roughly 3

  35. A few months back a friend asked if I could help in restoring a pair of A7’s back to their former glory. A previous owner had decided to strip back the original paint with the intention of clear coating the plywood boxes. He gave it a good go sanding completely back to raw ply but realised the construction methods, although strong, were never going to look that pretty without some extensive veneer work. Unfortunately the project was abandoned and the raw boxes were left exposed to the elements for some years. I don’t have any pics on how they looked pre start, the horn flares

After being tied to Telstra for the last 20+ years mainly due to the fact I could only get ADSL in my area, Yesterday I was finally able to tell them to DISCONTINUE MY TELSTRA ADSL INTERNET EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY. Since they are almost impossible to contact them by phone for anything, I left them a txt in their app. They contacted me pretty quickly with another 20 minutes of them giving me deals and reasons why I shouldn't leave, they accepted by cancellation.

  42. I'm with the artist here. It's bad enough the record companies not giving a flying fig for music quality ("here, have a a mp3 download with that"). Neil seems to be one of the few artists who is passionate about the listener hearing what he hears in the studio. Good on him! Few others care for the consumer. Seems like he's considered MQA as an emulation logarithm and found it lacking.

  43. festivities and work impinged on hifi time. So install and set up was finally today. I also pulled other components off the rack to be able to dust it off and also move the rack forward to more easily access the rear connections. Couple of photos show how big the X5 is compared to my Marantz PM10. Initial impressions on sound are very good so far - sounds right, sold bass through my Revel F208s😎
