  1. I would like to purchase these if still available. PM on the way.
  2. I'll add a third advantage and that is politics. Or to be precise, the lack thereof. They are where they are not due to the achievements of a single government. Rather, incentives have gradually been put in place over a period of 30 years by different governments and broad party coalitions. It's a helpful reminder of what can be achieved if one puts political game playing aside, and instead demonstrates a willingness to come together for "the common good". This is not meant as a political post but as an example of broadly agreed upon policy. I will now step down from the soapbox.
  3. I'm not a green communist, however I do agree with you. I looked into getting the first generation electric Mini when it was introduced a decade ago. Unfortunately it wasn't widely available. As you say, the car isn't too big which is a positive., and I viewed the range as sufficient back then - in fact, it would still meet our needs today. I would say that cars like the Mini, e-Up. e-208 etc are what many people are looking forward to, particularly those living in or near larger cities.
  4. Further information: I have used this cable to feed my PS Audio P10 power regenerator. As the P10 has now been sold, the VooDoo Infinity Power cable is no longer needed. Current model with a retail price of $1 250. https://www.classaaudio.com.au/power-cable/1510-voodoo-infinity-power-powercord.html · Designed for Solid State & Tube Power Amps and Power Conditioners · High Current #8 AWG High Purity Silver-Plated Copper Conductors · High Harmonic Resolution · Balanced Dynamic Control · Articulate Soundstage Imaging · Gold-Plated PowerPhase Tellurium Copper AC Plug & IEC Connector · 100% Copper Braid Shield Coverage The VooDoo Infinity Power AC Powercord represents a new era in power cord design, with high harmonic resolution, breathtaking imaging and transparence and accurate dynamic control. The Infinity Power is especially suitable for solid state and tube power amps and power conditioners, where high line capacitance, opaque background, dead-neutral tonal balance and the ability to reproduce accurate harmonic complexity are essential for a vivid holographic soundstage and accurately controlled dynamics. The Infinity Power is a hand-built power cord with the cryogenically treated PowerPhase Gold-plated Tellurium Copper IEC Connector and AC Plug. Each of the #8 AWG high-purity silver-plated copper conductors is wound in a proprietary geometric design. Each strand within the lay of the conductors is individually insulated with velocity-matched Teflon dielectric insulation. The Infinity Power is 100% protected from invasive EMI and RFI with heavy-gauge copper braid shield. The power cord body is sheathed with double layers of abrasion resistant mesh sleeve for maximum durability and optimal flexibility. All of the wire and connectors used to build the Infinity Power are cryogenically treated in our custom cold fusion deep-immersion process at -315o Fahrenheit (-192o C) to structurally align and fuse the metallurgical molecular structure of the conductive metals for optimal sonic performance.

  5. Further information: Excellent cables from Nordost which I purchased via this forum some years back. These are first generation Frey, not the current second generation. The rubber rings on each cable indicating positive or negative are slightly loose. I’ve attempted to rectify this by applying a few drops of glue inside each ring, which seems successful in keeping the rubber rings correctly in place. This will of course not have any impact on the performance of the cables. Photos:
  6. Further information: Note that this is the 1 TB SSD version with no DAC. RRP $3660. Excellent server which received a favorable review from Sound + Image magazine Australia. I found the DigiBit Android app to be very intuitive and easy to use. Link to review: https://www.avhub.com.au/product-reviews/sound-image/digibit-aria-piccolo-music-server-subbed-444802 The Piccolo can be used together with an external power supply which further improves its performance. Features: · Easy to use – just open your tablet and start playing music · 100% silent operation · 1TB/2TB (HDD) or 1TB (SSD) internal storage · Multizone support · Fully automatic CD Ripper (insert & rip), with external DVD · Best metadata retrieval in the market with auto access to 5 databases · Bit Perfect digital audio · Support for up to 32bit/384KHz PCM/DXD music files and DSD 64/128/256 with optional DAC. 24bits-192KHz and DSD64 via SPDIF · Digital (USB) and unbalanced analog RCA outputs · Compatible with Airplay and DLNA · Wifi 802.11.ac · Supports storage expansion * through wifi connected network · Supports a broad range of music formats: WAV, FLAC, Apple Lossless (ALAC), AIFF, AAC, Ogg Vorbis, MP3 and DSD256 Additional information can be found on the manufacturer’s website: http://ariamusicserver.com/products/aria-piccolo/ Pick up only at this stage.

  7. My understanding is that this server is selling quite well within the market it is aimed towards. Several have also been sold locally, according to a conversation I had a while back with the distributor regarding a different product.
  8. Item: PS Audio P10 Power Plant regenerator, silver Location: Melbourne, Eastern suburbs Price: $4,200 Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: No longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Well reviewed power regenerator which has performed flawlessly in my system. The P10 comes with all the original packaging, is Australian stock and has Australian plugs. The remote control has never been removed from its packaging and is unused. I am the original owner. A local sale is preferred. Photos:
  9. The cables have now been sold. Thank you to all those that expressed interest.
  10. Item: Audio Principe Signature power cables, 1.5 m and 2 m Location: Melbourne, eastern suburbs Price: $290 for both Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: No longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: Well known Australian power cable with Furutech power plug and connector. I ordered a number of Signature power cables from Peter (Audio Principe) in various lengths, all with custom black/white outer sleeves. These two cables are no longer in use and are therefore up for sale. Preference will be given to a local buyer. Photos:
  11. Polestar is teasing about what seems to be a new concept model or perhaps a new, third model. From an email I received today: "Precept: a rule intended to inform behaviour or thought. Something that shows the direction that Polestar is heading in. Something that shows how the future of Polestar will look and feel. Something that we’ll tell the world about on February 25th."
  12. I'm not aware of any recommendations as I imagine this would depend on several different factors. However, they do provide some information about it's functionality on their website. From their website: "The Kharma Listening chair is specially sculpted to enjoy a musical performance in every way. The chair in its upright listening position brings an active posture to unravel a musical masterpiece, while it can also be transformed to a laidback lounge chair to forget the world around us and enjoy our favourite music. By just a touch of a finger, you control the built-in motor to settle into your desired position."
  13. A spectacular speaker deserves a spectacular listening chair. This is from Dutch speaker manufacturer Kharma.
  14. I haven't yet been there myself, but have friends who have and who shared photos. From what I've heard, the food is quite nice. Here is a photo of the same Wilson system with an additional turntable:
