  1. These are kind of spoken for, pending shipping decisions.
  2. I'm not allowed to comment on listings in the Classifieds. And Theophany speakers may well sound great. But the overblown description from the manufacturer are a complete turn off.
  3. From memory the X35 has a manual iris, not a dynamic one, albeit more advanced than the one on my old HD750. I may have confused people with the 4K thing. Given the viewing distance in the room it will be used, there is no discernible advantage for 4K over 1080P. There is even less discernible advantage for HDR with a projector of this era since they don’t have the brightness to do it properly. And, in any case, I’m not a fan of HDR. I have an LG OLED and find most HDR shows unnatural. I carefully calibrated my LG OLED to classic cinema settings. HDR is the equivalent of the awful Dynamic/Vivid setting but with better blacks.
  4. Yeah, if it has 4K (or faux 4K) I don't mind, but given it isn't a visible improvement at my viewing distance I don't really care. The X500 onwards with the dynamic iris will make a difference.
  5. Item: JVC projector Price Range: 1K+ I guess Item Condition: Used Extra Info: For many years I had JVC projectors, including almost a decade with a pair of HD750s. When they finally bit the dust, and I moved to a non batcave house, I strayed and bought a bargain-priced Epson TW9200. It's OK. But the lack of good blacks bugs me. I need to get back to JVC. I'm too cheap to buy a new one, and don't need 3D, or 4K. So I'm thinking an X500 or similar. Let me know what you have. Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible.

  6. Just to clarify, price is $150 each. I imported these last year from the States. They are officially wireless streaming amps using DTS Play Fi. But their real advantage is that they have Anthem's Genesis ARC Room Correction built in. So, used as power amps, you can do wireless automatic room correction to any speaker. I used them for while with great success and then moved to a full Anthem AVR setup. They are small but mighty with 100w of power. That's the good news. The bad news is that they are US 110V models and will need a step down transformer. Fortunately I have two and can include them in the sale. I have the original boxes for the amps and so can ship them, but not for the transformers if you want them. So pick up in Surry Hills. The PW Link in the middle of the photos has been sold.
  7. I've owned these longer than any piece of audio equipment except my trusty sub. The Fresco was Martin Logan's first non-electrostatic speaker. There is a nice description here: https://www.soundandvision.com/inwallspeakers/708ml What makes them special is that they use the superb Bohlender Graebener Neo 8 and Neo 3 planar drivers along with very good regular dynamic drivers. The BG drivers alone sell for lots of loot. They are a great match for ESLs as surrounds, and excellent as main speakers in their own right. They can be used horizontally or vertically, and include the wall mounts. Retail was $3K for the pair. Mine have slight signs of use and one has a small paint thing on the back from a lazy painter. Easily removed I suspect. They are sonically excellent. Sorry about the crappy photos. I no longer have the box so it is pickup only from Surry Hills Sydney.
  8. I bought this a year or so ago from Radioparts for a bedroom system but never actually ended up using it. I'd read it was a good cheap sub. I assume it still is. At the moment it is acting a base for my printer. I threw out the box (and it is so cheap that posting it would be more hassle than it is worth, so pick up only.

  9. I've bought lamps from OZlamps for my HD750 and had no problems. I've always regretted selling it. My Epson TW9200 is good, but not as good. Tempting.
  10. Hmmm. My 20+ year old Velodyne HGS servo sub is on its third amp and showing occasional signs of flakiness. And I don't feel like spending another $450 for a new amp module. Plus my new car needs a good run (I'm in Sydney). I'll try and talk myself into this.
  11. I think the LS50s need to be crossed higher than the regulation 80Hz - around 150Hz or so. Which means stereo subs that can reach up that high. The SVS SB1000 or 2000 fit the bill. I had very good results with a pair of Lyngdorf BW2 subs.
  12. Further information: I got these a couple of weeks ago to compare to my long-term HD580s. They are very good, probably technically better, but I'll stick to what I'm used to. They are, of course, like new and have the full warranty. I have the box and all accessories. The box is a bit torn because I had trouble opening it.
