  1. Yep. I will be in the group stampede rushing to the EXIT sign
  2. Hi Tim and welcome to SNA. That amp just won't do the MA speakers justice. Although they are reasonably sensitive, they do like decent power and current to really shine ( like almost all premium speakers ). I know that your budget is $300 and people will always say "just spend a little bit more " but there are very few, if any, amplifiers at that price that will give you the performance of which these speakers are capable. You could try this if you can stretch just a little and its tonal balance will suit the MA Silvers very well.
  3. The 5si is a decent amp and sounds good with a variety of speakers, but I would avoid partnering it with any speakers with a bright or forward sound. The house sound is catchy, lively and agile. You would want a neutral sounding source as well, but with good system matching, the results are worth the effort and for a $1K outlay it is a good buy.
  4. RC was an only child. Anyway, I cannot say why in public. it is nothing bad at all ( in fact the polar opposite) just very private, but I can say that he was a friend of my then family.
  5. Nope. I have never been there. When I say unique, I really mean unique..... in its literal meaning.
  6. Actually, I have a very personal connection to Goodbye Tiger that is unique.
  7. Ditto. Once I started, I had to stop myself adding so many more.
  8. The Beatles: White album. The Beatles : Sgt Pepper. Black Sabbath : self titled. Blackfeather: At the Mountains of Madness. Jimmy Hendrix ; Electric Ladyland. Super Session : Mike Bloomfield, Al Kooper, Steve Stills. Jethro Tull: Thick as a Brick. Cream: Disraeli Gears: Cream : Wheels of Fire (live and studio ) The Crazy World of Arthur Brown: Self Titled. Lou Reed : Transformer Santana: Abraxas Tully: Self Titled. Al Stewart : Year of the Cat King Crimson: In the Court of the Crimson King. Richard Clapton : Goodbye Tiger Hawkwind: In Search of Space. Gyan: Self Titled. Jeff St John's Copperwine :Joint Effort Country Radio: Live. Rolling Stones: Sticky Fingers Jefferson Airplane: Surrealistic Pillow. Zoe Ravenwood: The Problem Might Be Me.
  9. Actually ,it really is easy. Make sure you get a home trial and buy whatever pair puts a smile on your face. If nothing does, don't buy it. Simples.
  10. So, it doesn't interest you, fair enough. Many others appear to disagree. Thank goodness for choice then.
  11. The other advantage of these two is that they are Brisbane based and Geoff from Aurealis is one of the best people I have ever dealt with.
  12. This is why many businesses ask for a 60% deposit and there is no consumer law covering "change of mind "
  13. These are at least two Australian cable makers who will allow you a home trial. You can judge their efficacy for yourself. https://www.egmaudio.com.au/product-category/cable/ and https://www.aurealisaudio.com.au/
