  1. I wonder if there is an imbalance in having a $30,000.00 (available for just over $18,000 at present) speaker and an amp which costs under $3,000.00. Would such an amp be good enough to get the best from the speakers? Here is a thought: Hulgich Audio Astors in Piano White and a Vitus Audio RI-100 which is (was?) available in the Stereonet For Sale section. Good luck with your search. Do let us know how you get on.

    KEF LS50W - Driver Colour / Swap

    Copper everywhere. I don't really like the blue, at least in pictures. Perhaps in person blue looks better.

    Audio Flight FLs10 amp

    Sorry, but I can't comment personally, but Audia Flight generally do get good reviews. http://www.audia.it/admin/files/HFN_Dec_Audia_Flight_FLS10_Reprint-LOW.pdf

    There is not much of the "just shove it there" philosophy in this build. Lovely room and set-up. Congratulations and thanks for sharing.

    New Amp from Parasound

    Thanks, George. I didn't think to look at the interior for switches. But why are there three switches? My question about the P6 was for others - I understand your attitude to powered pre-amp's.

    Anyone here collect speakers?

    Do you have "au pair of Celestion Duttons?

    New Amp from Parasound

    Hey George, what makes you think that the voltage is user-configurable? Is there one in the country yet? And what about the new P6 pre-amplifier?

    FS: Accuphase E600 Integrated amplifier

    I don't mean to undermine this advertisement, but potential buyers may wish to check about the warranty. I believe that Accuphase warranties are for the original purchaser only. But I hope I am mistaken in thinking that. Is it an Australian purchase, or an imported unit?

    Once again Oz distributors show they are carp

    Rob181 - have you heard the Esoteric amp's? At least the prices are not outrageous in comparison to the U.S.A..
  10. I was going to respond to this post, but then I realised that I didn't know what to say.
  11. I love the look of the Yamaha products, and hope that they succeed. But, like cafe67 I think they missed a trick. It should have at least 150 watts per channel. Accuphase's E-470 has a rated 180 watts, Marantz's PM-10 is specified at 200 watts, and Parasound's HINT6 has 160 watts. Luxman's L-509X is rated at 120 watts which I think is a minimum for an amplifier which is a "flagship". BUT, I don't understand the arm on the turntable. A straight arm with no off-set on the headshell. What am I not getting here? Regardless, I decided I want a full system, especially when and if they bring out a disc player. Or maybe I'll settle for a CD-S3000. How do I set up a gofundme page, or whatever it's called?

    Marantz seem to call the PM10 the "S1". Have you considered waiting until the "S2" is released?

    Great Buys On Ebay & Gumtree

    Who is this guy about whom you have such low opinions? I see his advert's a lot.

    Topping TP32EX+

    Thanks for that, Jonny. I suspected that USB would be better than analogue.
