  1. I'll take Bo Didley Go LP, James Elmore Picking The Blues LP, Leadbelly Archive of Folk Music LP, with postage to Ipswich, QLD. 4305 please.
  2. Hope you had better luck with your PM than what i did. Never got a reply.
  3. I'm also running a pair of Ambience 1800 References, driven by a Pass Labs x250.5. $5k will get you a 150, 250s go for about $6.6 - 7K if you can find one. The 350 would be wasted on the Ambiences. I've only ever seen one 350 for sale on SNA. That was quite a while ago. It was snapped up straight away. The last 2nd hand 350 I saw for sale was at Audio Addiction and it was over $13K. The 1800 Reference responds extremely well to new/modified crossovers. Tony Moore's original crossover design is very outdated. The bass drivers are out of phase with the ribbons. If you are ever in Brisbane, you are more than welcome to hear my setup.
  4. X250.5 is 15 W Class A. The Ambiences are 96db efficient, so they don't need a lot of power. Tony Moore states 75w per channel maximum. When the bass driver inductor coil was faulty, I managed to put 768W per channel into a .5ohm resistance through them. The Pass Labs didn't raise a sweat. In normal use, the power meter barely moves. I also have a very large pair of SGR passive speakers that appreciate a decent amount of current to drive the 13 inch Focal bass drivers. Have a look at https://www.queenslandaudio.club/march-2019, https://www.queenslandaudio.club/2017-january and https://www.queenslandaudio.club/2016-janu
  5. For what it's worth, I'm powering a pair of Ambience 1800 References with a Pass Labs X 250.5. They sound great. The crossovers have been replaced and the bass drivers are now not out of phase. I supplement the bottom end with a set of ported subs running 12" Peerless drivers.
  6. I highly recommend Brian Maddern at Decibel HiFi.
  7. Our QAC Christmas in July this year has an Italian theme. It will be held next Saturday 6 July at Karalee. In addition to this, we are doing roast beef & gravy and Peter & Tracy have promised me a pavlova (I have a sweet tooth 😁), along with other deserts. The party is open for all QAC members and their families. It has been good to see in previous years more wives partners and children at these events as the mid-year party is a more social gathering than an audiophile event and one that everyone can enjoy. Here is a link to the 2018 event https://www.queenslandaudio.club/2018-july It is a good opportunity for anyone that wants to join QAC to attend. Prospective members can PM me for the meeting details. QAC subscriptions only cost $20 a year. That doesn't even cover the cost of food that one would eat at our monthly meetings. https://www.queenslandaudio.club/join-us Our subscription fee has a number of purposes; Pay for the website/domain and any administration costs. Pay for occasional BBQ events and other requirements. Reduce time wasters (People who ask to be on a mailing list and never participate). Cheers, Andrew Club Secretary (Here me telling a tall tale at last years party https://www.queenslandaudio.club/2018-july?lightbox=dataItem-jjw9vi831
  8. Try a Pass Labs X250 or if your greedy a X350. You won't lack bottom end grunt!
  9. Hi Cameron, hopefully yo can have the speakers out from the wall, unlike a certain treasurer who has recently moved to Caloundra. LOL Andrew
  10. Welcome aboard Ross. For what it's worth, I've got both of Bill's first two suggestions - SGR & Ambience ribbons. Cheers, Andrew
  11. I missed out on it by a few minutes. However, I just bought a brand-new set from JB HiFi online tonight. Used the 20% off, plus another 5% bonus off to get it for about the same price. I bought the Delicate Sound of Thunder box set as well. They should be here next Thursday, so I'll bring them with me to your place.
