  1. Have the crossovers been refurbished as well? When did the new tweeters go in?
  2. Argh. Bother. Just came here to send you a PM to buy. Whoops!
  3. I've been keeping an eye out for either one of these (or the 30.5, due to cheaper price and already have two A32s for the rest), an Elektra Theatre HD2 or - the end game (for me) the Denon POA-A1HD. I can't justify anything bigger or higher end. Is the top black or silver as well? How deep is the unit? It'll look awesome next to the silvre A32s and the R32 pre Curious to know what you upgraded to!
  4. Oooohhh this one is in silver!! and 7 channels! And XLR! Hmmmmmmmm..... Hmm. What did you upgrade to?
  5. So tempting! Was hoping for a pair of these to come up when I get my own place next year... Perhaps if I sold my N804s... hmm... where in Melbourne are they located?
  6. Heya, Thanks for the info. Will give that a shot! Cheers, Tristan
  7. Wow! This was the top of the line dream processor for me when this came out (and I bought the Onkyo 595). I since ended up with a 989 which has been relegated to three channel power amp duties. I'd consider it if I wasn't a little overstocked on home theatre boxes. Oh, also, 'dat motorised door, yo! Brings a smile to my face every time on the 989. Good luck with the sale!
  8. Hi all, Recently acquired the 10" bipolar Infrabass subwoofer by Elektra Audio on these forums. The amplifier seems to have an audible hum, not just from the plate amp itself but also through the speaker drivers. In addition, one of the woofers seems to be bottoming out well before what I'd consider to be a reasonable SPL for such a system. Is there a way to get in touch with the original manufacturer or an authorised repairer who knows the unit to look at it? Cheers, Tristan

    Monsters of doom

    Very excited for this one. The DOOM remake, I felt, still retained the essence of the original DOOM's gameplay. Let's hope I'm not disappointed. And on the topic of feeling old - don't - when I ran the PC gaming area at PAX Aus, we had 64 people consistently sign up for the DOOM 2 deathmatch tournament (we capped the tourney at 64).

    SOLD: FS: Primare A30.5 MKII

    If that was silver, I'd be snapping this up in a heartbeat! Good luck with the sale. This is excellent value.
  11. Still one of my favourite disc spinners. I've got two of these and extensive experience listening to them. I still prefer the sound vs. my Denon DVD-A1XV for some reason, which was a 6.5k player in its day (the Marantz sold for around 2200). Excellent two channel performance for the price here and does a solid job of the higher end formats, too. For $300, this represents excellent value even as just a redbook CD player. Nope. For SACD, you'll need (and probably want) to use the analog section in this unit.

    Free: Yamaha YST-SW300 Subwoofer

    JPete9 has dibs and it looks like they'll be picking it up if they haven't already. Of course, I bet they'll absolutely hate the [size/sound/wife acceptance factor] of the subwoofer so I'll gladly pick up from them once they've decided they want to get rid of it! One can only dream

    Free: Yamaha YST-SW300 Subwoofer

    If JPete9 falls through, I would love to pick this up ASAP. Been on the hunt for one of these specifically for my dad's system.

    SOLD: FS: Bowers and Wilkins 805s

    Stunning bargain of the century for that price!
