  1. G’day, any hot tips for a budget friendly ($100-200) Bluetooth receiver for casual playback from my phone to my main stereo? Perhaps something like the IFI Zen Blue https://addictedtoaudio.com.au/products/ifi-zen-blue-bluetooth-dac?variant=30371552329824&utm_medium=cpc&utm_source=google&utm_campaign=Google Shopping&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIov7WgsHu5gIVzxwrCh3ENASIEAQYCiABEgIpnPD_BwE
  2. BTW I will need replacement speakers...will spend about $500 on bookshelves...so if you are considering an upgrade I will consider part trade...
  3. I keep the grills on...they just look sexier with the grills off I’m using an 80’s SS Luxman at 100w seems to do the job....
  4. These are ‘the ones’ that sold last year...and I was VERY lucky...I’m selling them for what they are worth...unfortunately my luck with hifi has not transferred to my car
  5. I believe they are Dynaudio drivers and can be replaced - although these seem in very good condition to me. They are really, really heavy...as I mentioned before...there are some rough edges so inspection/audition is essential...but the sound...oh how they sound...top shelf...
  6. Item: Whatmough Audio Ondine Location: St Kilda Price: $3000 ONO Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: Need to fix my car Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Only Extra Info: VERY reluctant sale. These are a very high-end speaker with very high-end sound. This pair has a bit of history behind them as they were apparently the prototype. There are quite a few bumps and marks and the speaker terminals have some 'wiggles' - a few cosmetic fixes and these will rival some of the best speakers around. Super heavy, a two person lift lift for sure. INSPECTION strongly encouraged as for this price you will not come remotely in the league of these bad boys. BTW I will need replacement speakers...will spend about $500 on bookshelves...so if you are considering an upgrade I will consider part trade...

  11. I've been really bad... Moved to a small apartment in St Kilda from Frankston about 18 months ago...common sense said..."get rid of the JBL's"...which was done...sadly, I loved those guys. The tie-me-over speakers were a pair of Energy stand mount speakers...then the quest for some nice stand mounts appropriate for my room...and then...Tannoy Revolution XT 6F...hardly stand mounts...sounded awesome...but then I needed to fund a holiday so off they went...tie-me-over speakers were a stand mount pair of B&W's...can't remember the model...but the quest for nice stand mounts appropriate for my room continued...and technically I am now rockin' some fine stand mount speakers...but yeah...pics later for these...and yeah that's 5 speakers in under two years... Here's a couple transition pics taken on iPhone and screen captured from instagram... Tannoy Revolution XT 6F B&W???? Current stand mounts...TBA
