  1. For sale is a pair of 1.0M Cardas Audio Clear Reflection RCA Interconnects I have always wanted to try these and did so earlier this year purchasing locally from Addicted to Audio here in Melbourne in May. They are a great sounding cable and worked well with one reviewer calling them "fluid and coherent" and I feel this is an apt description. They retail for $1999 in this length so you have an opportunity to pick up an as new pair at a good price. http://www.hifiplus.com/articles/cardas-clear-reflection-cables/ https://www.theabsolutesound.com/ar
  2. I have two rigs, one for stereo and one for HT. I picked up the entry level Marantz as I was tired of volume riding because the centre channel was poorly represented on the TV and connected some old Dynaudios to it in a 2.1 config. It transformed the viewing experience and actually did pretty convincing two channel becoming the go to system for the family. I later added some rears and a centre and whilst it’s better I think the advice to pick up two good speakers for your rig is sound and will fit both your use cases. Cheers. Nick
  3. Could it be a fabric back? The R909 are awesome speakers I remember hearing them and the ease with which they conveyed music has always stayed with me. GLWTS, Nick
  4. I do this when I think some 'cans are not balanced properly and give them a 180 spin on my head. It usually turns out to be the track. I once had a tweeter out of phase and my system did this to me. It would come and go with different tracks that had a different tonal balance. I found it whilst playing pink noise and moving a phone with a basic scope app up and down the front of the speaker at a distance of about 30cm. I felt the frequency dip at the crossover point was enough to warrant further investigation and once the tweeter was loose it could be traced from the crossover. Sol
  5. The performance of this model lens is remarkable. I was lucky enough to borrow one from a friend for a while and the shots remain some of my favorite ever. 24mm and 1.4 is a superb look. If I was still a Canon full frame user this would be gone. GLWTS
  6. Yes Papajero has the link it is a monster thread but it is real and it works. I went down the rabbit hole. For years I wanted to be able to rip an SACD for higher than CD quality 2 channel playback for those albums where the only way to get this was SACD. I was originally looking at a PS3 etc but they were getting older and more expensive then I happened on the above thread. I have an IT background and was able to source an ebay special for $50 and rip SACD. It can be fiddly but it worked for me. I have a handful of titles perhaps six now and have been able

  9. Nice, Congratulations on your need for two more doors I spent some of my youth in a 205 GTI and a 206 GTi and they are welded into my memory as awesome awesome superb cars and this one can only be in the same vein. I wish I needed a car right now, or somewhere to put another, or some kids that were just about to drive or ..... GLWTS
  10. I will take David Gilmour live at Pompei bluray, INXS Kick LP and Jimi Hendrix Axis bold as Love SACD Thanks Nick
  11. I have used the ER20 'plugs and they work well I often lose pairs to mates who ask if I have spares I also had a pair of these made up and they are constant gig companions. https://pro.ultimateears.com/microsonic-earplugs.html They work well and the sound is good. I find for really heavy gigs the goose bumps when the bass pumps bass actually manages to shake them in my ears and I perceive more bass and the sound is unbalanced. Still worth it for me. Cheers, Nick
  12. Hi, May I have the Police for $55 Thanks, Nick
