  1. Further information: As New Condition. Only 3 months old purchased locally from Digital Cinema at 26/06/2020 so the local warranty still have a long validity on them. I got a little crazy at that month and purchased 3 different budget speakers As far as I can tell there is no local store that stocked this speaker as i think the PSB brand is not popular in Australia even though its predecessor the Alpha B1 was popular worldwide and so is this new Alpha P5 . So ended up having to do an order in on them, used it for about 1 month after which I upgraded to a more expensive speaker. Not the best performing with a mini Yamaha amp but it scales well with a higher performing amp such as the vintage Marantz tube pre/power combo on my mains setup. Supposedly this have great synergy with NAD amplifiers since they belong under the same parent company but since i don't have a NAD amp I cant really tell.

  2. I sent a PM as well yesterday but I suspect this might be taken already
  3. Further information: Its only 1.5 months old but disappointingly straight from the retailer there is a slight cosmetic defect on the surface of one of the speaker that can be seen depending on the way the light bounces of the white surface and the retailer told me that sometimes this happens as they are craft wood and as long as the vinyl wrap is good then it's fine and since there is no damage to the vinyl wrap at all, considering that it is indeed a budget speaker I figured its within their quality acceptance criteria. Does not affect the sound as far as i can tell and there is still plenty of time left on the warranty. Pickup is preferred so the buyer can inspect the condition firsthand but i do have the original box so in theory shipping is also possible at an agreed cost. This is an AUS stock and i will provide a copy of the invoice for warranty purpose. Note this is the 3020i which is the larger brother of 3010i which i also have for sale in white colour as well. In theory if you want to you can buy them both and find the matching center speaker and sub for it to make a full Q acoustic home theatre setup. They both share the same sound signature but the 3020i gives more mid and midbass but somewhat slower sounding while the 3010i sounds more airy and nimble. Do note that the Q's have a longer/deeper cabinet than their competitors which supposedly done for their sounds tuning. Selling as i bought too many budget speakers recently. When comparing this to the PSB speaker which i'm also selling IMO the Q's perform better on a budget amp but the PSB sounds better when its paired with a better amp.

  5. Further information: As New Condition only 2 months old purchased locally from Digital Cinema at 26/06/2020 so the local warranty still have a long validity on them.

  6. Further information: For some reason this award winning speaker is not available for demo in Sydney retailers so i have to do a special order in from Digital Cinema recently (26/06/2020) so the condition is as new with the local 5yrs warranty still have a long validity left on them. The Walnut vinyl actually looked pretty good for its price with the only minor thing is the glue on the woofer surround is not as clean looking as i hope it would be but its fair considering this is a budget category item. I planned to use this as a desktop speaker with a Yamaha WXA-50 but i dont think it have good synergy with the amp and quite possibly my room as well. Performs much better with my vintage Marantz tube amps but i am looking for a desktop bookshelf and i don't have desktop space for a big pre and power tube amp setup. Supposedly it works well with NAD amps since they are owned by the same parent company. Pickup with social distancing is preferred but since i have the original box in theory shipping is also possible but at your own cost and risk since sometimes Auspost are not that delicate with their handling. 2019 Stereophile product of the year 2019 Soundstage network product of the year Details and specs can be found here https://www.psbspeakers.com/product/alpha-p5-bookshelf-speaker/ Reviews and comparisons https://www.stereophile.com/content/psb-alpha-p5-loudspeaker https://www.soundstagehifi.com/index.php/reference-components/1390-recommended-reference-component-psb-alpha-p5-loudspeakers https://www.hifichoice.com/content/psb-alpha-p5 Photos:
  7. Further information: I bought the Dragonfly Black awhile ago to try it with my iem but i found it too loud for it and its been left idle most of the time so i'm selling them to clean up my gears. Note that this is the v1.5 with MQA support (tested with Tidal) but the label at the back of the unit has faded out. Item has never been taken outdoor so the condition is still good. I took a bunch of close up pics so you can see the condition of the unit itself. Price includes shipping by the standard Auspost satchel. Do note that with Auspost satchel the box will usually get some dents on them due to the way auspost handle satchels but the unit itself should be protected by the original product box Comes with the original box, travel pouch and flight manual.

  10. I have to give thumbs up to Bill as well since i also have an issue with my cable and he went beyond what any retail store would normally do to resolve it.
  11. Further information: Length is 1.5Metre. I bought this from another SNA member quite a few years ago and its just been sitting in the cupboard doing nothing since the cable stiffness is inconvenient for me. It is advertised to be handcrafted from down under but i'm not sure if this company is still operational or not. There are some marks on the outer locking plug that you might be able to polish them out if you want do so but functionally it still works as it is. Please see attached picture RRP and Technical Specs can be found here http://www.the-music-cable.com/whitelab.asp Postage included in the price. FYI I will just post this in the Auspost satchel that you can see in the picture. Shipping is done once payment is cleared. Distinctive Features: *no moving parts A single solid copper tubing is used as the shielding (for ground connection) A single copper-clad solid center conductor is used for signal connection, Quality low density, closed-cell air-foam dielectric is used. The dielectric is bonded to the outer and the center conductor to eliminate all relative movement. No mesh, no relative movements, no moving parts. No intermodulation distortion. * solid copper shielding The solid copper tubing (the outer conductor) also provides the best protection against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference (EMI & RFI). Older designs of cable shielding may fast become inadequate in our modern day environment, especially in busy city where there is a huge increase in the use of telecommunication and electronic equipment. * highly polished pure copper-clad aluminium single solid center conductor The aluminum is used mainly as a support, and is relatively non-conductive to the music signal the cable carries in this application. This arrangement forces most if not all of the signal to flow along the thin copper clad tubing, thereby putting “skin-effects” well under control. We use only premium quality gold-plated, teflon insulated, locking type RCA plug and lead free silver solder. These cables are designed to preserve signal integrity. By design, we offer one of the best (if not the best) Hi Fi cable system for modern day use. Photos:
  12. Further information: Note that there is some scratches at the top of the unit since i was putting a miniwatt n3 above it without realising that the miniwatt feet is full on metal tip. See attached pic for the scratch. This is just cosmetic and it does not affect the sound This is an Emotiva mini-X A-100 which i bought direct from Emotiva maybe 5 yrs ago back when there is no Australian stockist. 50w of Class A/B amplifier. The half width size might help accommodate smaller spaces but do note that this thing still weight like 6kg or more Pickup is preferred but can ship at your own expense and risk. I have the original box that will be used for postage if required. Review can be found here: https://www.cnet.com/news/emotivas-sweet-sounding-219-amplifier/ Note that this older model does not have a headphone jack output. Review of comparison with the newer model can be found here https://hometheaterhifi.com/blogs/emotiva-100-desktop-amp-mini-review/ There are some spare fuses in the original box and the supplied original power cable is a US plug since this is shipped from Emotiva but you can always use your own figure 8 power cable.

  13. Further information: Up for sale is a Bower &Wilkins 686 S2 speaker. Its a relatively slim sized speaker that might suit smaller space Condition is still very good as per picture. Pickup is preferred but can ship at your own expense and risk. Comes with original box and manual. Note that there is no rubber feet on it as i used a stand with it and the optional bunghole foam apparently has deteriorated inside the packaging box so its there in the box but i dont think that foam is usable anymore. Some review can be found on: https://robmoores1.wordpress.com/2014/06/03/bowers-and-wilkins-686-s2-small-is-big/ Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  14. Hi Bill, since your solid copper and silver cable presumably looks identical from the outside it might be good idea to make them differ slightly otherwise it might be a challenge for people who maybe have both to tell which one is which
