  1. Item: Sennheiser PXC550 wireless noise cancelling headphones Location: Mont Albert, VIC 3127 Price: $180 (paid $269) Item Condition: Used, very good (9/10). Reason for selling: No longer required. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I bought these as a refurbished set direct from the Sennheiser Australia online outlet in June 2019, so they are still under local warranty (1 year total from memory). I took them on a 5-month round-the-world trip and they were faultless - they're very comfortable and the battery lasted the two-flight trip from Melbourne to London before needing a recharge. In terms of how they compare to their competition - I've heard the Bose QC35, Sony H900n and Sony WH-1000XM3. The Sony cans have the best noise cancelling, with the Senns about on par with the Bose. Sound quality wise, the Senns are definitely the best - a very detailed presentation with strong bass and excellent clarity. The Sony's are good but sound a touch clinical by comparison, and the Bose just aren't in the same league. These will come in their travel case with all the original accessories (no box though).

  2. Item: Final Audio E2000C IEMs + Comply foam tips. Location: Mont Albert, VIC 3127 Price: $60 (Retail $79) Item Condition: As new - only tested 2-3 times and put back in the box. Reason for selling: Weren't the right fit for my ears. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Purchased from Minidisc in July 2019 - still under local warranty. I'll also throw in a set of Comply foam tips (one pair currently fitted).

  3. "I've formed an opinion of a product I've never actually listened to, and my assumptions are correct until proven otherwise."
  4. My thoughts exactly - what an odd statement to make...
  5. Not sure to be honest - I bought it second hand earlier this year and wasn’t provided the original receipt. I’ve used it on a few trips and it’s been faultless. You’re welcome to come and have a look at it.
  6. Item: Official full leather case for Fujifilm X100F (black). Location: Melbourne Price: $60 Item Condition: Fantastic. Reason for selling: Not being used. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Camera is now sold, leather case is still available. Pickup from Mont Albert 3127 or Melb CBD, otherwise buyer pays postage. Pictures:
  7. How good is the LS100! Glad to hear you're still enjoying it
  8. Ah, much better! I can now tell that what I was seeing before was in fact a reflection, not a defect. Thanks for the quick follow-up - definitely just a minor mark
  9. Can you post a better photo of the defect? From what I can see in the current picture, it actually looks like there's a break/hole in the cabinet, certainly through the paintwork. If that's the case it constitutes far more than a "slight mark", but it's hard to see definitively due to the lack of sharpness in the pic.
  10. Not sure why nobody has mentioned Naim yet - their amps are known to have good synergy with Harbeth speakers. For $3500 you should be able to land a new XS-2, or a used SuperNait 2 imported from the UK.
  11. Seriously, you want to fundamentally change the design now? Some of you guys need to take a breath and think a bit more rationally about this. We're talking about a special edition of an existing design, not "here's my shopping list for the perfect amplifier" that would require a ground-up redesign.
  12. If it's going to be minimalist (and it should be), then ditch the XLRs and forget about a phono stage.
  13. I'd love to see some statistics to back up this claim - it doesn't stack up at all in my personal experience. In fact of all my HiFi mates, I can't think of one who goes direct from a DAC to a power amp. Preamps with built-in DACs are a different kettle of fish however.
