  1. He is what's inside retrieving your files as you navigate. It's an Aurendeer 😁.

  3. Hey Joey, I was commenting on the original post (whether he should go up from HL5s to 40.2s). Audiome - They're near polar opposite the Veritys to the Harbeths, but a valid comment given pricing. I'm still yet to hear a speaker image better than Verity Audio, and if you're after linearity and absolute analogue tonal accuracy, they're the ones. But they won't touch the 40.2s for lower frequency body and richness, and the Harbeths (all of them) are the least fussy about upstream equipment that I've come across. If classical music is your poison, Verity all the way. If you're after a great all-rounder the Harbeths are an easy choice imo.
  4. What are the room dimensions? In one of our rooms (3.7 x 5.5m) the HL5s actually sound better imo. In our larger 10x9m room the 40.2s show why they're 3x the price. You do get more body, a larger visceral impact, and just a greater sense of energy, but you're also losing the super tweeter and so I would say that transparency is slightly better in the HL5s. If your room is large enough, the 40.2s are supremely addictive and an absolute full-range speaker. They'd be my choice.
  5. Their trade-in scheme seems to oscillate. If you have no luck I'm always happy to consider cart trades.
  6. I don't have an open IsoTek here to test but will do so when I get a chance. I could do that with a kettle cable but if I make an adaptor cable I can also use a kettle cable for a baseline. The adaptor is handy because I can test just the cable itself. It's great to be able to see (as well as hear) the results for this stuff. Also the Shunyata has a C19 input. One of Shunyata's long-standing point of difference has been the non-current limiting design, and because of that I've never experienced any loss of dynamics. Their current capabilities are not hindered by high impedance electronic filtering. I've got access to multiple conditioning brands, but choose Shunyata for the reference system here.
  7. I agree. But don't forget this is in our shop, a commercial premises. It's not nearly as bad at home
  8. D is right, the cable is helping here as well. I'm going to make a link cable so I can measure the noise reduction of the actual cables. The entire Shunyata power cable range have NR (noise-reduction) built in (except the narrow-fit versions of them). So even if you already have a power conditioner you are happy with, a Shunyata feed cable could also be a consideration. "The Delta NR in Shunyata Research’s NR Series power cables incorporates ‘on-board CCI™ filters’ that provide power conditioning to each individual component." https://shunyata.com/products/power-cables/nr-series-power-cables/delta-nr/
  9. An interesting test we just performed with our Shunyata AU-8 power conditioner! Remember not all power conditioners are equal, and some we have tested actually doubled the distortion on the mains! This is why we use and recommend Shunyata.
  10. Item: Aurender N100h 2tb Location: Berowra NSW Price: 3,299 (retails $4,499) Item Condition: As new Reason for selling: Stock turn Payment Method: Any Extra Info: Mint condition with 3 month warranty, this pristine unit has been our store demo unit. Includes factory packaging and can be posted for an additional $20 to anywhere in Australia. https://krispyaudio.com.au/products/aurender-n100h-digital-music-streamer-2tb-ex-demo.html Photos:
  11. I would second the suggestion of considering putting the sub money back into the speakers or elsewhere. Those speakers go down to the 35Hz (probably lower in-room response) which is pretty decent to be honest. Do do you need a rack for this?
  12. I haven’t come across any other than Furutech but if you’re getting a bunch I’d be happy to look into a bulk price. PM me if you need. You don’t want to solder mains cables, these just use a screw clamp.
  13. It's an Australian delivered unit but as with all of these, it is 110-120v/220-240v switchable.
  14. Item: Technics SL1210Mk2 turntable Location: Berowra NSW Price: $1,100, add $50 postage if required Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: Need the space tbh Payment Method: Any Extra Info: This table has actually seen minimal use, acquired more for its legendary status than for playback. It hurts to list this but I'm running out of space and it just doesn't see enough usage to justify holding. It's in absolutely mint unmarked condition. The perspex cover is lightly scratched but nothing deep and a keen polisher could restore it fairly effortlessly (or replacements are available). I have the original box for this. Unsure the exact age but was purchased when Technics announced the end of production for their turntables (so 2010-ish?). As was purchased, this has a schuko power plug with an Aust adaptor. Price includes turntable, head shell, dustcover and original box (note no cartridge included). Also offering a generous discount on matching graphite platter mat and headshell should you want to upgrade this fine lady! https://krispyaudio.com.au/products/oswalds-mill-audio-graphite-platter-mat.html https://krispyaudio.com.au/products/oswalds-mill-audio-graphite-headshell.html Photos:
