  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

  5. Anyone know a decent place to have custom headphone cables made in Sydney? Or cables in general. This is not for sonic reasons (I'm not a cable believer) so I don't want to pay for magical wires. I'm adding bluetooth to my Sennheiser HD580s and want the cables to be a certain length. I could just trim down the stock cable, but I suspect that will look kind of crappy.
  6. Howdy again. The PW Link has sold. To encourage you on the power amps, I’ll throw in a dual output 110V step down transformer.
  7. Item: 2 x Paradigm PW Power amps, 1 x PW Link Preamp Location: SYdney Price: $250 each, $200 for the PW Link Item Condition: PW AMPs mint, PW Link used Reason for selling: Drunk eBay bidding Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  8. Item: SVS SB12 or similar Price Range: 500-700? Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: I'm after a sealed SBS sub, ideally the SB12 NSB. I'm in Sydney. Let me know what you have. Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible. (You can now delete this text).
  9. I’ve owned both SF and Dynaudio, as well as many others. Often great speakers. As are my current KEF R3s. But if I had just slightly more than your $3k budget I’d try and do a deal with West Coast HiFi on the Pioneer S2ex they had listed on SN. Basically they are the $40k TAD Evolution for $3.5k. Same drivers. Same crossover. Slightly different box.
  10. Surely the obvious question then is whether there is any advantage to having an all-ribbon speaker? I used to own Duetta SIgnatures and loved them (more so than the Maggies and Martin-Logans I've owned), but the compromises required to make true or quasi ribbons play low were what lead me to dynamic dipoles.
  11. Item: Sonus Faber Grand Piano floorstanding speakers Location: Surry Hills, Sydney Price: $1700 $1600 or non silly offer Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Wife hates leather Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I bought these a month ago from Audio Connection, thinking my better half might like the beautiful curvy black gloss cabinets, leather surfaces and copper highlights. Who knew she has a thing against leather? They sound great and to my eyes they are best looking speaker Sonus Faber has made. Cool from the front, cool from any angle. The speakers are in excellent condition. They were checked out carefully by and have a three month warranty from Audio Connection. You should buy them. I don't have boxes so pick up only from Surry Hills. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  12. Item: Martin Logan Fresco i Location: Surry Hills Sydney Price: 350 or non-silly offer Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: Orders Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I've owned these longer than any piece of audio equipment except my trusty sub. I had two pairs, but sold one here recently. This are the updated model with gloss black cabinet and upgraded drivers. The Fresco was Martin Logan's first non-electrostatic speaker. What makes them special is that they use (although M-L didn't admit it) the superb Bohlender Graebener Neo 8 and Neo 3 planar drivers along with very good regular dynamic drivers. 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. You should buy them. 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. I no longer have the box so it is pickup only from Surry Hills Sydney.
  13. After extensive testing, I've finally decided on my next speaker. I'll be repurposing drivers I have (BG Neo 3, BG Neo 10, Peerless SLS 10) into a 3 way stepped open baffle with a slot-loaded bass section. Previously I've gone fully active with my DIY OBs, but this time I'm going to see what happens if I use a generic 3 way passive crossover and DSP to do both speaker EQ and room EQ.
