  1. Price drop...... NOW $ 4600. Heres a bargain folks!!
  2. Just received this reply from Conrad Johnson...... Hello Jeff, The main out of the ET3 can NOT be phase inverted, due to the fact that the negative terminal of the RCA is earth ground. Phase inversion can only be accomplished with cables that are not connected to earth ground, such as speaker cables. Thank you
  3. They are certainly that! To answer your question: I bought a pair of Lenard Sarabandes on a whim. They are an active speaker and make no mistake, they sound wonderful but a mate of mine came over for a listen and while it was a close call, he preferred the GoldenEars. So in all honesty,Im not convinced its an upgrade in sound quality at all. I guess what is swaying me is the Lenards have adjustments for highs, mids and lows which I like ,however, the big selling point for me is I can recoup a fair bit of $$$ by selling my ATC power amp.
  4. Item: GoldenEar Triton One Location: Sydney Price: $5000. PRICE DROP....... NOW $4600 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Moving to fully active speakers Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Never thought I would be replacing these speakers, however,you know how it goes...... So much written about these on the net, and I can't remember a negative in all that I read. What you will find out when researching, is these are commonly referred to as "giant killers". While they weren't cheap at $9500 retail price, they were often compared to speakers costing considerably more than the Tritons. I believe they won Product of the year award among many glowing reports and reviews. Don't be put off by the numerous bass drivers...it has the most controlled tuneful bass that I have come across and can be tailored to your taste and room with each speaker having bass controls on the back of speaker. I have owned many speakers with some costing twice as much as these, however these have been the best in my system hands down. In excellent condition, they are around 3 and a half yrs old . Will be selling my ATC power amp also if interested. Forget to add that they have 1600W amps in them powering the bass drivers so they don't require a huge musclebound amp to get these sounding good. https://www.avhub.com.au/product-reviews/sound-image/goldenear-technology-triton-one-stereo-loudspeakers-review-407332 https://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/goldenear-triton-one-loudspeaker/?page=4 Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  5. Ok, thanks for the advice,much appreciated. I'll see what I can find out
  6. Have just become the new owner of a pair of Lenard Sarabandes which are a fully active speaker. My preamp is a CJ ET3SE and like a lot of CJ gear, it inverts the phase . Now,this was easy to do regarding hookup of previous speakers.....as manual states, just swap over speaker connections at one end and voila...done! How is the best way to go about it now though, when I'm using interconnects from speaker to preamp??
  7. It’s a California Audio Lab A program start up mode? I don’t have the user manual unfortunately
  8. As title suggests.... CD player still works perfectly fine but the annoying flashing is well........annoying . Numbers etc on display are still there, it’s the background light of screen which flashes. Is it an easy fix and if so, could a nong like myself attempt it? Thanks!!
  9. I have had Spendor ST in the past (similar in some ways to D7)and loved them, and have always had in the back of my mind....one day the D9's might be mine! I found the ST's a very hard speaker to dislike so I'd love to hear your thoughts on what didn't grab you with yours Cheers mate, Jeffro
  10. Item: Spendor ST Location:Sydney Price: $4K NOW $3500 FIRM Item Condition:Excellent Reason for selling:No longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: According to the Spender distributor, these are probably the only pair in Australia. These speakers are around 3 yrs old and in 9.5/10 condition.They are Spendor ST (or Statement) floor standing speakers and were Spendor's top of the line speaker at the time costing $12999 They also come with Carbon fibre inserts in which you can change the look of the front of each speaker to a carbon fibre appearance. I have never used the alternate front inserts and so they are brand new still in the box.I have always liked the ebony wood grain finish. Soundwise , these speakers are the best that I have had and I have had quite a few high end speakers and just to name a few.....Dali,Legacy Focus,B&W,Lenehan Reference,Gallo Reference etc.Some of these were more expensive than the Spendor's but each one had their faults. Its very hard to find a fault with Spendor ST's sound, detailed without any harshness ,wonderful midrange and tuneful tight bass. The separation of each instrument across the huge wall of sound is impressive and glorious. I don't have the original boxes so its pickup only or I can take take to Pack n Send for them to professionally box up and send.....at buyers cost of course. https://bt-hifi.com/images/downloads/Spendor/Spendortestberichte/ST HFW APR 10.pdf https://www.listeningpost.co.nz/assets/SPENDOR-Statement-brochure_69706_1.pdf http://www.hifigear.co.uk/media/uploads/Spendor Summary of Reviews.pdf https://www.hifix.co.uk/spendor-statement-st-carbon-speakers-pair I quoted someone recently to send to Victoria and it was @ $180 for the 3 boxes (2 speakers and box for spare carbon fibre inserts) and an extra $150 for insurance, just to give a rough idea for those interested interstate Pictures: Pictures:
