  1. I have a Twisted Pear Dac that I built, I sold the Valve version but am building another valve DAC
  2. FS: Linkwitz LX521.4 System PRICE REDUCED "MAKE ME AN OFFER" I really need to sell this system ASAP Location: Charlestown Lake Macquarie (just south of Newcastle) Condition: As new, recently completed Reason For Selling: Need the money, and will be moving soon to a house half the size of the one I’m in! If you’d seen my garage you’d know that’s going to be a problem 😊 What are they Like: I thought my original OB’s were great (which I still have) but they have been downgraded to very good now I’ve listened to these for a while, these are great.

  4. That's great thanks, shame I dont do Facebook :)
  5. Hmmm, not really sure, the woofer drivers weigh 12.5kgs each x 2 + approx 13kg for the case so 38-40kg per woofer cabinet. My guess is the Bridge, Top Baffle & drivers weight about weighs about 15kg so a total of about 55kg per side.
  6. I'm overwhelmed by your kind words, thank you again
  7. Thank you all for the comments I appreciate it I haven't posted them anywhere else as yet & your right SO MUCH WORK

  9. My brother and I gave Spotted Gum a nick name "Devils Wood" beautiful, yes, hard YES , cranky YES YES YES Built my sister a table from it. The best bits are figured and the more figure the more cranky. I agreed re the 1.5" being enough.
  10. Whatever you can afford and like 2"would be plenty thick enough.
  11. I noticed the designs at the top of your blog have the reduced baffle dimensions for the mid and tweeter drivers, for what it's worth, I can highly recommend that design approach, really helps the sound stage. Ya gotta love those Scanspeak drivers Whats the big black box between your speakers. Ok it's a sub
  12. You should get more bass if the woofer is closer to the floor.
