    Hi from another new sydney member

    Hi mate; can't help with the playmaster, but welcome to SNA!
  2. I'm just a little envious Anthony; what an iconic place of music!!! πŸ™‚
  3. Now sold pending payment...
  4. All yours mate; send me a PM and we'll sort out the payment and delivery details. Cheers mate, Steve πŸ™‚
  5. Just to clarify folks; I've had quite a few people asking me if these are the Q500. As far as I know they are (that's what the previous seller listed them as from memory) but there's no numbers on the cables to confirm. If anyone knows these cables well they may be able to tell from the pics I've just posted. Cheers, Steve πŸ™‚
  6. Item: ETI Quiessence speaker cables 2.5m Location: Wollongong Price: $150 + postage Item Condition: Excellent used condition Reason for selling: No longer needed Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, DD, COD Only Extra Info: I bought these about a year ago from another user here; planned to put them in another system but didn't end up happening. In the meantime I've replaced the crappy ETI banana plugs with some high quality Z-plugs. These are very natural sounding copper cables that will work well in just about any system, and for the price you certainly can't go wrong! PM me if you're interested; very goos cables at a bargain price!!! πŸ™‚ Pictures:

    GIESELER Groß DAC official release

    The uRendu/ultra are great streamers @jakeyb77 and hide in the background as they're very small so visuals are not so important. Doesn't require roon, but I use it ad think it's well worth the money. The Konverter plays Tidal MQA no problem with my setup, and it's very nice to have all of my digital music in one library (tidal/ripped/downloaded). Are you absolutely sold on the Node and no Roon? Might be worth reconsidering... πŸ˜‰

    GIESELER Groß DAC official release

    Hey mate, Pretty sure Clay recommends the USB input for the Gross, but as it has optical and coax inputs as well you've got options! If you buy one let him know how you'll hook it as there's different firmware optimised for each input from memory. Als ofrom memory the Gross will handle DSD up to 512k, and when I play MQA files through my Konverter (very similar DAC) it passes them through at the highest sample rate. If I've made any mistakes I'm sure Clay or someone else will pick me up, but that's the basic gist. The Gross is an outstanding DAC, especially running through your pre-power combo! Cheers, Steve πŸ™‚

    Richter Days

    From memory they're pretty efficient; may 90-91dB if I remember right? Should be easy to drive...

    SOLD: FS: Gieseler Pre-Amp

    Still available folks; too good to be sitting idle! Shoot me an offer; worst I can do is say no... πŸ˜„
  11. Would love to, but my bank balance is maxxed out. I hope it finds a new home πŸ™‚
  12. Haven't got 1 in front of me atm, but from memory about 3-4mm...
  13. I've got 6 of the LF70's with the plywood insert; will keep it natural (oiled or varnished) as I like the "warm" look of timber, especially as the rest of the room will be black and white. I've also got 4 with the perspex insert for places where I want them to blend in a little better. Personally I think they look pretty good for bass traps, and as it's a dedicated music room aesthetic ideas are largely irrelevant; form follows function is my motto! Cheers guys, Steve πŸ™‚
  14. Thanks mate; I read the link already- nothing I wasn't already familiar with. For some reason the image doesn't work for me even after refreshing the page, but the mode "numbers" do show up, so at least I can get a sense of what's going on or where there are nodes/no nodes. Thanks for the help! πŸ™‚
  15. Thanks Mike, appreciate your input! πŸ‘ I've gone ahead this afternoon and ordered 6 more of the LF70's, plus 4 of their similarly designed (ie foam with curved front panel) flat panels; I figure that gives me plenty of options to move them around the room and add/remove the fascia panels to tweak the end result. I'll definitely use the fractal diffusers somewhere between the speakers on the front wall, and will probably place one or more of my current DIY absorbers there as well; at least everything is lightweight, and can be easily moved around until I find the best layout! Hopefully will be up and running within a month, but depends largely on how long it takes me to paint, and how long it takes my sparky mate to finish the power and data hookup! Will keep you posted... πŸ™‚ Cheers, Steve
