  1. He does remotes. If you need more power than a Topaz (42W classA) then the Tempest should suffice. I have a Topaz and it bettered some expensive Manley and ARC amps for me. Plus backup service is second to none.
  2. Item: Bluesound Node 2 Location: Melbs Price: $470 Posted anywhere in Oz Item Condition: 9/10 Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Node 2 in Black. Unmarked condition with all boxes and packaging. Cables still twist tied. Fantastic streamer, easy to set up and use plus the BluOS App is a joy to use. Even sounds pretty darn good when compared with my Fein2 dac. All in all a great bang for the buck streamer. Relisted due to no show Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  3. Yeah I read that, there are fan mods posted for the older NU model I’d look into....... can’t be doing noisy
  4. The only think that worries me is the NX3000D has 1/4” or XLR input and Speakon output. I’m driving it with a Gieseler dac who’s output needs to be split with a splitter rca between the Weston’s topaz and NX3000D. Clay says the output can be increased from 2.0mv to 2.65mv, (don’t know if this helps)The subs have Wbt terminals. I was thinking pro audio 11ga speakon cables (18m long)and cutting the speaker end off, re terminating with spades? For the inputs, pro audio RCA to 1/4” or MXLR 2m long.
  5. Looking at the NX3000D, the subs are wired for around 3ohms or can be re wired to 8ohms. The amp can do 1000w at 3ohms 440w at 8ohms which maybe too much? Dual subs, each with 2x drivers
  6. I agree with the size but waf is low. I already have 2x Zu mini methods with dual 10s each and the new Zu hypex sub amps ........that do really well, not as deep as a ported larger sub but fast, tight enough to feel in your chest. We recently moved to a larger house and the Mini methods need some help.
  7. I’ve been thinking of a Behringer NU3000DSP, looks like a load of power and dsp.......but is it reliable ?
  8. Hi Brains Trust, , I'm thinking about purchasing a pair of passive subs, each with dual 10" Peerless XLS woofers. The only subs Ive had in the past have been active with inbuilt amps and crossovers etc. What Amp would you suggest to power and then perform crossover and boost controls etc. Is there an all in one professional stereo amp that can do this relatively cheaply?
  9. It is the current model, I bought it from Krispy as a trade in.
  10. Item: Rega Phono Mini A2D Location: Melb 3193 Price: $135 + post RRP $199 Item Condition: New, unopened Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: great Phono according to the reviews, What HiFi 5 star award Apr 2018 https://www.whathifi.com/rega/fono-mini-a2d/review Made in England with USB and RCA out.

Rega is new, unopened. so pics are here http://www.rega.co.uk/fono-mini-a2d.html Pictures:
  11. Item: PS Audio NuWave Phono Location: 3193 Price: $875 plus post, cheapest I've seen on Stereonet, Item Condition: 8.5/10, slight swirl-marks from cleaning and a small barely visible nick.

  12. After 30 seconds you’re good to go input wise, much before then then you won’t get full volume anyway due to the soft start. Although my Topaz always sounds great, after 10-15 mins it really starts to sing and is noticeably airier and extended. At this point the transformers are warmed to touch. My advice from Earle years ago when I picked it up, was leave the back switch on 24/7 unless youre leaving the house on holidays etc
  13. I have a Topaz 120 with Zu speakers of around the same sensitivity and impedance (12ohm) and it definitely rocks as much as you like. That front switch is On:Off with a LED to confirm. Ive had my amp for 6-7yrs and I only refrain from turning it On Off too quickly. My amp takes about 15mins to sound it’s best. After switching on, it takes 15-20sec before sound slowly builds up to normal volume. I usually turn the Vol down during this time and don’t apply an input. Mine is auto Bias so theres no need to touch it. You wont buy a better built amp for the $ and Earle will be happy to support you even tho you’re not the original owner...... it’s his amp no matter where it ends up. He is fantastic to deal with.
  14. Sold pending payment. I think the 2i has updated Bluetooth which allows 2 way communication with a phone etc. not sure of other changes.
