  1. Item: JVC HD750 projector Location: Surry Hills Sydney Price: 750 ono Item Condition: used but good Reason for selling: bad room Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I’ve just moved and no longer have the room for my much loved JVC HD750. I’ve owned it since new and it has given the family great service. There are no issues I am aware of. Although it is an older model, the performance (especially black levels) still beats most anything except a newer JVC. And even some of them. It has THX, full CMS and a manual iris. It has 1200 hours on its second bulb. I’ll include the old bulb which still worked fine, plus a 120 inch electric screen and drop ceiling mount. I also have part of a Chief mount (I forgot to remove the ceiling part when I moved). I have the original box, manual and remote for the projector. Not the other bits. Pictures:

    Replacement for JVC HD750

    Well, I’m in the new house and the question is moot. The only cheap decent projector that will work in the space is a Benq 2050 (1120 here in Oz).

    Emotiva RMC-1 has a web page

    Having imported three Emotiva prepros direct from Emotiva, - all of which were buggy on a good day then died on a bad one (necessitating customer repairs of delicate electronics (twice) or shipping back to Emotiva for about what the unit cost) - I would be very very wary. That their spiel on the website is bollocks is besides the point. Even if it weren't they have a history of not delivering.

    Replacement for JVC HD750

    Sorry, I should have been clearer. I don't want to replace the HD750 with the modern equivalent. If so, I'd follow your suggestions and get something like an X500 or later with the brighter lamp and iris. I'm after something that can fill in for the HD750 in a smaller, brighter, cheaper form until we move to a more projector friendly home.
  7. I’m moving to a much smaller rental house without a dedicated HT area and I’m not sure my beloved HD750 will fir or be suitable for the space available. Is there a modern unicorn with decent black levels, enough brightness for a mixed use space and installation flexibility? For not much since we’ll be buying again in a while. I have an Epson TW5500 downstairs which almst fit the bill until the HDMI died, so maybe the Epson 6700? Whatever Benq isentry du jour? Have UST projectors achieved watchability?
  8. Item: 2 x Pinnacle Slim Sub passive subwoofers Location: Surry Hills Price: $200 the pair obo Item Condition: Pretty darn good Reason for selling: Moving Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Here we have a pair of Pinnacle Slim Subs. These are shallow (450 x 250 x 150) passive 'subwoofers' designed to mount on a wall or under a couch. Pinnacle aren't well-known here, but are similar to Paradigm in their Canadian-ness. They quote 28Hz extension from a pair of sealed 6.5" drivers and come close with a bit of EQ. As hinted, I wouldn't call them 'subwoofers in the HT sense. They are more like woofers to get you down below 80Hz (i crossed them at 40Hz, but I don't listen very loud). To get that low you will need EQ. I used a MiniDSP. They'd be ideal for a stealth install on walls, or under couches, for bass challenged mini-monitors like Kef LS50s. They are also ideal for a distributed multi-sub setup for those who want smooth out room modes properly. Retail in the US was $600 USD each. I need to make space so $200 the pair but am open to higher offers. Even lower ones. The finish is a kind of metallic veneer which is actually quite cool, but it scratches easily and there are a few from the floor. They have the original boxes and grills. The little buggers are quite heavy, so pickup would be best,

    FS: KEF Q100 speakers with stands

    And responded to.
  10. Item: KEF Q100 speakers Location: Surry Hills, Sydney Price: $350 Item Condition: Used Reason for selling: Moving Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I'm moving and thus need to sell my bedroom speakers. These are the very nice sounding KEF Q100 in great condition. There are only light signs of use. They come with the grills and the original box. I will include a set of speaker stands. Pick up in Surry Hills Pictures:

    FS: 2 x Rythmik F12 subwoofers

    Hi all. The subs are on hold for someone.
  13. Item: Rythmik F12 subs Location: Surry Hills Sydney Price: $1400 Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: Selling mancave Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Alas, i will shortly be selling my house, and that includes my lovely giant mancave listening space. I hardly ever use it now anyway. So my two Rythmik F12 subs will be even more surplus to requirements. I’ve owned them for a few years and they are as good as their reputation. I’ve paired them with speakers ranging from Apogee ribbons, to DIY dipoles, to Maggies, to teensy KEF bookshelves, to ballsy Def Techs. They are black oak, with the PEQ3 amp. There are a few light signs of use, but overall they are in great nick. 98.2% use was music. Albeit music with real bass (I’m an organ fan). I can take some pics, but they look like black Rythmik subs in good nick. $1400 or so for the pair, or I will split. Pick up only because they are large and heavy and I have mo boxes. Pictures:
  14. Item: Usher S520 Gloss white Location: Surry Hills, Sydney Price: $250 or offer Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: Too many speakers Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I have a pair of the deservedly popular Usher S520 for sale. They are gloss white and in very good condition. I bought them new from TCC a couple of years ago and they were used in my bedroom system, so never played loud (even though they can easily handle a bit of volume). I have another pair in another system, so I guess you can say I'm a fan. There are numerous reviews here and on the web, but I think it is safe to say they are best speakers you can buy for the price. I'd prefer pickup in Surry Hills, but I have the boxes so can ship for $25. Pictures:
