  1. Legend Acoustics Kurre 9 - Review

    Hi, congratulations on your purchase. Excellent choice IMO. I use the Dynaudio Stand 6 for mine and yes there is overhang but this is not an issue at all. These stands are magnificently constructed and are exactly the type of solid support these speakers require. I place four largish blobs of blu tack in between the speakers and stand to both protect the speaker and hold it firmly in place. Trust me, it won’t move and you’ll actually have difficulty removing them later. Place something inside the stands to deaden them. Forget Atacamas as they use very soft metal and they aren’t stable at all - I know as I use to have them. Enjoy your speakers and would be interested in your listening impressions. Cheers Muzza
  2. Dynaudio Emit M20 with NAD Amplifier?

    Try not to limit yourself to only overseas speakers. Australian product are world class and equal to anything that arrives here by ship. Lenehan Audio Legend Acoustics Krix Osborne Only naming a few.
  3. EOI: Legend Acoustics Kantu 8i Speakers

    It's even better when you have two of them!
  4. Item: EOI – Legend Acoustics Kantu 8i Location: Sydney Price: $3700.00 plus shipping costs with insurance Item Condition: Excellent (one tiny issue - see below) Reason for selling: Raising funds for something different Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD Only Extra Info: Purchased August 2016 – much prefer pickup. Demonstration available. Purchased new by me in August 2016 direct from Legend Acoustics. Complete with manuals, plinth spikes and original packaging. These have performed flawlessly since new. These speakers are deadly accurate and they image as well as a ‘high end’ bookshelf. Bass response is tremendous, controlled and dynamic. IMO, it would be hard to find an equal at the price advertised. Minor issue: one of the plastic tips on the ‘spider’, in front of the tweeter, snapped off when I stupidly tried to dust the front baffle with a duster. I managed to glue it back on fairly successfully and there is no damage to the actual tweeter so performance is totally unaffected. I doubt anyone would spot it after taking off the front grill so not immediately obvious. Certainly wouldn’t see from the listening position with grill off (see photos). Apart from this, the speakers are as new with no marks on the veneer at all. The veneer has been cleaned a couple of times with Mirotone’s Spray Glow to preserve and protect it. (I use this on all my speakers). The veneer has always been protected from sunlight coming into the room so they haven’t faded at all. The plinths currently have Isoacoustics’ Gaia III Isolation Footers attached in place of the original screw in spikes. The Gaia’s are not included in the sale, as they will be repurposed. In addition, the speaker cable and the disks under the spikes shown in older photos not included. Please note that this is an EOI only at this stage so I can gauge interest. I’m not entirely sure that I do wish to sell them as yet. Should I decide yes, I’ll only be committed to selling if there is a confirmed buyer for this and my SACD player that is listed separately. I reserve the right to withdraw the sale at any time should I choose to.
  5. Item: EOI - Luxman D-O5u SACD Player Location: Sydney Price: $4200.00 plus shipping costs with insurance Item Condition: Minty Reason for selling: Raising funds for something different Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD Only Extra Info: Purchased new October 2016. Much prefer pickup. Demonstration available. Purchased new by me in October 2016 from Class A Audio. Complete with all packaging (triple boxing), manuals, aluminium remote (which is awesome). The SACD player is in mint condition with no marks at all on the chassis or remote control. The SACD player has performed flawlessly since I’ve owned it and it is superb in operation. Build quality is astonishing. Please note that this is an EOI only at this stage so I can gauge interest. I’m not entirely sure that I do wish to sell it as yet. Should I decide yes, I’ll only be committed to selling if there is a confirmed buyer for this and my speakers that are listed separately. I reserve the right to withdraw the sale at any time should I choose to.

    Lovely - GLWTS mate.
  7. New Krispy Audio Store!!

    Had an enjoyable time at Mr Krispy’s new store last Saturday. Fantastic room that is comfortable, spacious and excellent for the demonstration of audio equipment. It’s how a demonstration room should be - simple and elegant with a variety of gear to demo easily. A highlight was seeing a VPI Prime Signature in the flesh. Gorgeous gloss finish on the plinth - superb. Cameron had some vinyl playing on another VPI Prime with a Hana MC cart - lovely. Oh yes, the coffee was pretty darn good too. Thanks for the hospitality, Cameron. Wish you every success with the new store. Don’t forget that if my numbers come up, I’ll be on the phone to order that VPI Classic Direct Drive.
  8. Cabinet Maker Recommendations

    Try JJ Cabinets in Narellan. They produce the cabinets for Legend Acoustic’s speakers.

  10. Integrated amp for Legend Kantu 9

    Got me there, don’t know.
  11. Integrated amp for Legend Kantu 9

    I meant the speakers don’t necessarily require an amplifier that has a lot of power, ie, 150 or 300 Watts RMS. My ME550 MKII has 100 Watts RMS but can output a maximum of 40 amps of current. It drives the Kantu’s magnificently whereas my Luxman L507-uX @ 110 Watts RMS (unknown current delivery) can’t drive them well.
  12. Integrated amp for Legend Kantu 9

    @rantan cheers mate. Yes, Legend speakers require amps that produce decent current so choose the amps wisely. I’ve had Legend in the house since 2002 and have run them beautifully with ME pre-power and integrated (known for their current delivery). However, they are not the only brand capable of driving these speakers. (I’m just an ME fanboi and had to mention them). I don’t have experience with Holton or Parasound so can’t comment. It’s absolutely imperative that you try them together first before outlaying any money. Personally, I will always lean towards Australian made so give the Holtons a try first. And do let me know how they go together. I have the Kantu 8i which is a very similar design to version 9 (the 8 has the same tweeter but not the wave guide). They absolutely love current but not necessarily high power. Feed them right and you will be so happy.
  13. The MC phono stage is excellent and I’m looking for one!
