  1. I will have a go at answering this. I would rule out the PSB. If you had a partial music/cinema the PSB would be my preference, but given it’s a cinema, I would think the Krix would be close to the top due local support and performance wise. The PSA on sheer budget v performance value would stay in the mix.
  2. 4 x PSA V1800 ? But seriously that is a lot of sub for $1850 and I would think hard to beat. It’s a shame it’s so hard to audition subs against each other. Good luck with your choice, either of those three options Im sure will be pretty awesome.
  3. Well, I have had the 509x running for a couple of weeks. It is currently being used as part of a secondary system with the fantastic (and very small) Elac BS312 speakers and a REL No 25 sub. End goal will be to purchase some ESL speakers to use with the 509x. Initial thoughts are that the 509x has excellent detail retrieval. It also seems very neutral and of a whole, ie I’m not sitting here thinking the treble or bass is pronounced or recessed etc. listenability is very high, ie can listen for long periods without fatigue. It seems to have good levels of current, the little 312’s are a bit of a current sink. Soundstage is accurate, ie big when required or realistic size as per the recording. Final feeling right now is that it is a beautiful amp to listen to, which is reinforced by the excellent detail retrieval, ie these two things don’t necessarily come together in one package all that often IME. Am I glad I purchased it ? Very.
  4. Further information: Purchased from the Addicted sale around a month ago, I have never plugged it in or used it, so it is virtually new. I have offered it a price that is less than half the RRP of $5799. Basically only selling as I don’t have the time/motivation to load all of my CD’s on to the device, which is frustrating as I know it is a great sounding device. i am also open to trades on 4m speaker cables or Focal Utopia headphones. https://addictedtoaudio.com.au/products/aurender-x100-12tb-digital-music-player?gclid=Cj0KCQjwoub3BRC6ARIsABGhnyacqi6v_OH8qcIAB6sOP5xxu5Mp1n_6ZxkZfVlk02wWksTkfWJz8_gaAp1JEALw_wcB Photos: PLEASE READ If you are advertising multiple items, you must post one bulk price only, or post seperate ads for each item If you include any reference to pricing whatsoever in this section (excluding RRP), your ad will not be approved If you don't include photographs of the actual item being sold, your ad will not be approved
  5. Further information: Purchased from LWA, per the listing below. I have not opened the sub since arriving. Due to change in plan for home cinema (no longer building one), I am offering this at $150 less than I paid. Fantastic sub with plenty of connections and crossover functions, with the big driver/amp.

  6. Lol - it should arrive in the next day or so, so will have to wait a couple of weeks to report. I will be surprised if I don’t like it (ie unmitigated disaster if I don’t). I haven’t found any second hand quad’s or Martin Logan’s to use with it as yet either, which is the ultimate plan.
  7. @dalamii Beautiful system. May I ask how you are finding the Rel no 25 ?
  8. Item: Home cinema processor, with latest surround codecs apart from Atmos. Does not require 4K either but it would be nice. Price Range: Prefer around $1000, but can go to $2000 for a good item Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: require shipping, so must have box and be in very good + condition. Require shipping to NSW 2540. Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible. (You can now delete this text).
  9. Good choice I bet they sound fantastic with the H390 driving them. I imagine the bass response improvement alone will be worth it.
  10. I have a L509x coming soon for a second system. I was intrigued by it since it’s release, having heard and liked the 507 quite a few times. Luckily I beat the price rise by two days also. im going to use it with some Elac bs312 initially but hope to get some Quad or Martin Logan’s to run with it long term. This will be my first Luxman, I would love to own the d-08u CD player too, but probably just a bridge too far given most of my listening is via streamer. will come back and make some comments on the 509 after using it for a few days.

  11. Hi, I would like to take this with shipping to nsw 2540, if still available. Ray
  12. Yes, beautifully balanced speaker can listen to them for hours and hours. Well built too. TbH I was hoping to scroll down and see them in the birds eye maple, I would have snapped them up. Beautiful nonetheless, GLWTS.
  13. I had owned a couple of class d amps 7 or 8 years ago , they were the tact and bel canto’s. I think the tact used one of the earlier iteration of the b&o ice module. tbh I walked away from class d amps thinking they had decent bass but that was about it, very dry treble and mid and they pancaked into difficult loads making them sound worse. In effect I was in the anti class d brigade. About two years ago I first listen to the Kii three active system and absolutely loved its power, bass, dynamics, detail and indeed musicality, so much so I now own a pair and love them. The kii’s use the latest N core class d design by BrunoPutzy’s, who is considered to be at or close to the forefront of class d design. The class d designs I have recently heard have been the nuforce/nuprime ida 16 integrated and st100 power amp, which also sound pretty great, and dont cost a fortune. in my eyes(and ears) I think class d continues to exponentially evolve technologically and from a listening perspective. I have been completely converted by the models above and am excited as to where the tech will go in the next 10 years or so.
  14. IKEA Australia deliver now, just checked postage cost for two was only $9. So pretty cheap.
