  1. These speakers have now been repaired with new dust caps. See original post for details and photos.
  2. Item: Schiit Asgard 2 headphone amp and preamp Location: Oyster Bay, NSW 2225 Price: $225 Item Condition: Used Reason for selling: Not being used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This is a very rarely used Schiit Asgard 2 in perfect condition. I have hardly used it and was only used for review before me by John Darko. Sounds great, I was using it with Sennheiser HD600s and they sounded wonderful. But have been sitting in a box for 2 years! https://www.schiit.com/products/asgard https://addictedtoaudio.com.au/products/schiit-audio-asgard-2-headphone-amplifier?variant=16064094659&gclid=Cj0KCQjwrdjnBRDXARIsAEcE5YlPDjezExYGrCx4ndYlHplcV1HXpXYsBeUm5AVgcVCuVIVAy8GfDaYaAlRjEALw_wcB Pick up from Oyster Bay NSW or I could look into posting. Thanks. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  3. Item: Chord Odyssey 4 bi-wire speaker cable 2x2m Location: Oyster Bay, NSW 2225 Price: $150 Item Condition: Used but good condition Reason for selling: too short in new setup Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I have had these cables in my system for a few years and are in perfect working condition, and was a big step up from my previous Kimber cables. Unfortunately they are slightly too short in my new setup. They are actually longer than 2m, the insulating sheath is 2m and the cable extension and banana plugs extend beyond this, as in photos. Pick up in Oyster Bay, or postage $10 anywhere. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  4. Hey all. Thanks for the comments. Yes they are truly great speakers... I again reiterate that the damage to the dust covers is cosmetic only to my ears, and thats comparing to another set of Aurora 3s. So with grilles on you can't tell. But i understand the reluctance. I pulled out the dust caps out with a vacuum set to low this morning, pics attached. I'm just annoyed because these have been looked after incredibly well by both owners.
  5. Item: Orpheus Aurora 3 Speakers Location: Oyster Bay, NSW 2225 Price: $500 pick up only Item Condition: Used Reason for selling: Were being used as rear surrounds, don't fit in new house Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: These are a pair of Orpheus Aurora 3 speakers that I had purchased from an SNA member 8 years ago. He had them from new. The cabinets are in great condition for their age and they sound superb. They come with original gold binding post jumpers and spikes. They sound fantastic and to my passionate musician ears are a perfect balance between truth and beauty. So much so that I have another set of Aurora 3s Signatures and replaced these with Orpheus Dolomites as rears, as floor standers don't work in new house. These have now been repaired by me under the guidance of Kiat at Orpheus speakers. The old dust caps have been removed and new, better cloth versions have been used. The new dust caps were recommended as an improvement by Kiat at Orpheus. And they still sound wonderful see below fr new photos. The downside; we moved house two years ago and i discovered today that the removalists had done a number on the speaker dust covers. I had no idea until I took the grilles off. I triple checked and they sound wonderful, I can hear no impact on the music presentation, but i'm pretty gutted. I have shown in the pictures attached. That said I have adjusted the price accordingly. Pickup only from Oyster Bay, NSW 2225. Pictures:
  6. Thanks LFD. Yeah i'm a big fan of his, so was very happy to be asked to play on his album. Michael was there and was loving every second of the process and wanted to be involved. Truth is I haven't had a chance to really listen to it yet! I heard a few things across the room while quickly making dinner, but want to sit down and really listen. I have been firmly detained in musical theatre world lately, and 8 shows a week seriously cuts into listening time
  7. Thanks Viognier. They may have got a bit more than they bargained for on Monday night... Very glad they enjoyed it. Make certain you check out the gig we're doing with James Muller coming up. The music is fantastic. And he is off the charts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Through my work with the group Mir Creation we have started a Pozible campaign to release the beautiful album "Sanctuary" composed by Gary Daley on the PureAudio BluRay format. This means that you can experience the original 192/24 stereo recording or the 96/24 5.0 surround sound version (which we are very proud of) using your BluRay player. This recording was made in a beautiful chapel using the latest cutting edge technology that then enabled us to to do very little to the recording in post-production in terms of artificial reverbs, eq or compression. The surround mix is not an artificial 'showcase' of surround but a facsimile of the the positioning of the musicians within the space. Ed Kramer referred to the surround version of this album as breathtaking. The PureAudio BluRay format is the most effective way to deliver both the stereo and surround versions to you but also it means that anyone with a surround BluRay setup can experience hi-res surround music. Here is our campaign page; http://www.pozible.com/project/199679 We would love for you to have a look at out campaign video as well a great little doco on the making of "Sanctuary". Thanks everyone
  9. I've got to get in on this. I'm a big Mathias Eick fan and his new one again is fantastic. I was sceptical about the violin being the other front line at first but it brings a lovely, delicate folk feel to it.
  10. Hey Alucard. Completely of topic here but! Yeah I was aware of this but had no luck finding the ECM channel on my iPhone or Apple TV. I assumed maybe it wasn't available in Australia? If not how did you find?
  11. Damn... I stream most everything these days for general listening. ECM are of the few labels who keep all their music off streaming services, and it works! They're the only CD's I buy these days.
