  1. Hi Chris I’ve just started using REW with a calibrated mic and working with Paul from Red Spade on suitable treatment options. Whilst bass is my main issue with current speakers and room, particularly since I changed to a ported design speaker, soundstaging and imaging also need some work. Expectations are that positioning will also help but I’ve done that one to death over the years and whilst that does yield some improvements, the primary issues remain. Changing to hardwood floors has also certainly made life interesting, but knew that and it would be a journey to get things at least back to where I was with carpeted floors and then improve from there. At least my room has life now as it was dull and over dampened before. The soffit traps or super chunky bass traps are something I found on Gearslutz and seem to be used in pro audio world. Materials I am not 100% sure but something like fibreglass wool or similar, very dense. i have looked at Vicoustics and heard they make good products. Price might be an issue as a floor to ceiling bass trap was $3k for each corner😳 Cheers Dave
  2. Friend suggested that too and will give it a try. Overall, I’m looking for treatment for the entire room, particularly walls, corners and maybe ceiling.
  3. Thanks and have looked at them before but looks like they use more a foam style bass trap and thought fibreglass wool to be more effective?
  4. Hi All I recently had my room flooring changed from carpet to hardwood and am now in the process of measuring the room acoustics with a Unimik-1/REW. I plan to use someone to help interpret the room response and then as a first step, install floor to ceiling bass traps in all four corners with either an absorption or reflective membrane. As time is precious and I don’t have the DIY skills to build my own, I’ve been trying to find an Australian supplier of room treatment that is similar to GIK Acoustics. I did contact GIK but the cost to ship is high unless you basically can fill a sea container. https://www.gikacoustics.com/product/gik-acoustics-soffit-bass-trap/ I’ve looked at Vicoustics but their cost is extremely high and then there are the black foam ones that I personally think won’t do a lot in the lower frequencies. Would anyone know where I could buy these in Australia (I am in Perth) or any SNA member who would be interested in building some? Many thanks Dave
  5. I had one of these and have been using a K-01 for both CD and streaming for a number of years. Very nice player. GLWTS
  6. Item: Gigawatt PF-2 MK2 with LC-2 MK3 Location: Perth Price: $1000 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Selling on behalf of a friend Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Bank Transfer, COD Only Extra Info: I am selling this excellent power strip from Gigawatt that is 220-240V with AU plugs and a LC-2 MK3+ power cord with a US plug. Was bought and installed into my friends system last July, so not even a year old. Unit is already packed and ready to be shipped. Pictures:
  7. Fantastic speakers. Those accuton drivers are superb. True hi end at a bargain price.
  8. Thanks for the feedback George. Chanh your system is looking amazing. No glow in the dark cables. Just shine up with the camera flash. 😀 They sounds good.
  9. Item: Magico S5 Mk1 in Pewter colour Location: Perth, WA Price: $17,250 with free freight Australia wide Item Condition: Excellent. Bought them new in 2014 from Australian distributor. Reason for selling: Upgrade Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Bank Transfer, COD Only Extra Info: Very highly regarded speaker worldwide. Only the 2nd pair to come up for sale on SNA and given there are a few of these out there, says a lot about the quality of this particular model. I have owned them since late 2014 and driven them with different amplifiers (Vitus, Bakoon, Gryphon, ASR Emitter, Audia Flight), they represent a fairly easy load but do like good current. For me, I would say they are a neutral speaker. The top end is refined and delicate, transparent midrange and a tight fast bass. Lots of reviews of the S5 MK1 on the internet as they were reviewed by most publications and at the time, praised as one of the best speakers in its price range. These are the longest item I have held onto in my system as I do have a tendency to upgrade or change things up for something different. Have not had any inclination to do so since buying these speakers, until now that is:) I have the original shipping crates and accessories. Currently driving them with Audia Flight Strumento NO. 1 MK2 preamplifier and Audia Flight NO. 4 MK2 amplifier with the front end being an Esoteric K-01. Since my last post, the room has been changed to hardwood floors (apologies for the dust, one of the drawbacks for wooden floors!), so looks very different plus I have some new HiFi racks. Those HiDiamond speaker cables give off a neon effect:) My pricing is the cheapest anywhere in the world so if they dont sell this time, will hold onto them and focus on other areas in my system like room treatments. If they do sell, donation will be made to SNA.
  10. $1150 for anyone interested. Bargain for the price offered.
  11. Item: HiDiamond 8 Speaker Cables 3 metre (Banana plug) Location: Perth Price: $1300 ono Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Too many cables Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Bank Transfer, COD Only Extra Info: These cables were bought brand new from the Australian distributor. They have a fantastic build quality and the sound is very detail, extended top end with a hint of warmth in the mids and superb bass. The best speaker cables I have heard anywhere near this price. Comes with original box, certificate and are in excellent condition, aside from some swirl marks on the black casing that you could easily clean off but has not bothered me. Lots of good reviews online. (Sorry Cyberkank, pinched these from your ad when you sold your cables to a lucky buyer) Carbon fibre banana plugs and heavy at around 5kg's! http://www.hidiamond.eu/eng/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=282:review-mono-and-stereo-magazine&catid=8&Itemid=101?=en http://forum.audiogon.com/cgi-bin/fr.pl?fcabl&1413806696 http://forum.audiogon.com/cgi-bin/fr.pl?fcabl&1349884892 http://forum.audiogon.com/cgi-bin/fr.pl?fcabl&1371337783&read&keyw&zzhidiamond http://www.hidiamond.eu/eng/images/test/2013/D8_speaker_adiopuls_en.pd Pictures:
