  1. Item: Stereo System Price Range: Item Condition: Has been picked up. Extra Info: Old faithful system. 2 CD trays both working perfectly. Display screens all working well. Only issue is the tuner doesn't work. I think both cassette decks work but can't be sure add I don't have any tapes. Pick up only from Altona Meadows. Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible. (You can now delete this text).
  2. I plugged in the speakers last night after putting them into position. I will continue to play around with positioning as I go but have them about 2.0m apart and 1.0m off the side wall and rear wall. I couldn't listen too loudly so as not to disturb others and I put on Ryan Adams 'Heartbreaker'. Normally when I am trying out something different in my system I like to try lots of different music but I was enjoying it so much I listened to the whole album. I found a greater sense of space between the instruments which allowed me to hear more details in the music and Ryan Adam's phrasing tone was so much more noticeable and drew me more into the songs which is what hi fi is all about for me 😊
  3. I got the chance to have a good listen to the MKIII version of the I66 speakers at the recent Stereonet Hi Fi show in Melbourne and as a result I sent my speakers VAF i66's back to their birthplace for the full treatment and upgrade to 'se' status. I am picking them up this Monday and can't wait!!! I will post my thoughts when they arrive and I set them up for anyone who is interested. I can say already that Simon has been fantastic to deal with and has been very accommodating with me and last minute changes. I can highly recommended the service 😁
  4. It made a noticeable difference to reduce sound and temperature but it is definitely not 100% Cheers
  5. Item: Black Theatre Curtains Location: Melbourne 3028 Price: $200 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: There are two curtains: 2.1m tall and 1.6m wide. I joined them together to increase sound barrier. The Curtains were manufactured by a Melbourne based company and were used to reduce sound travelling through a sliding door opening. I have since moved house and no longer need them. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  6. I have a Devialet 120 and use it with VAF i66 speakers which have a sensitity of 89dB. They sound great to me 😁
  7. Another option is to speak to company that manufacture theatre curtains. This is what I did and I was very happy with the results. I will list it in the classifieds as I no longer need it - moved house 😊
  8. Very generous price for an amazing speaker - I love my i66's!!! You just need the right person. GLWTS
  9. I have had plenty of interest in the power conditioner and I am responding on a first come first serve basis. Thanks for your interest.
  10. Item: Consonance 4 Plug Universal Power Conditioner Location: Altona Price: $140 + $10 Shipping to metro Australia Item Condition: 8/10 Shows light marks if you look Reason for selling: I have swapped this to Nordost power conditioner to match all Nordost power cables because I like symmetry. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This a great performing and value power conditioner even at new price $290. This conditioner accepts plugs from Australia, US and UK giving you the freedom to use a huge range of power cables. I have 2 x 1.8m long Consonance power cables to match for sale that I will list tonight or on the weekend. https://www.osbornloudspeakers.com.au/power-boards Pictures:
  11. Item: Thoroughbred Australian Power Cable Location: Altona Price: $85 Item Condition: I purchased this cable from SGR Audio and as you can see in Picture 2 the plastic sleeve does not go all the way to the plug. It was like this when I purchased it and informed that it does not effect performance. From my use this has been the case. This was the last cable that I stopped using before having all power cables from Nordost. The change from this cable to my last Nordost cable had the least noticeable change which is a fair compliment to this cable at less than a quarter of the price. Reason for selling: Nordost loom Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: http://www.thoroughbredaudio.com/SHIELDED/ Pictures:
  12. All good. I am a very happy I66 customer and will check out the active versions at the show as I am curious to compare. Good luck with your search
