  1. I got 2x white 8 block one's for $129 (buy 1 get 1 for a $1) at S. Warehouse today. They are 288mm deep so a 20mm overhang - bugger. Still good for 2 rows of CD's.
  2. Seriously mate it looks like a professional repair to me. I've seen Audiomarks work and his craftmanship is second to none. The guy is not expensive. I would just send the driver up to him, get it done right. It will only be a few days and you will have it back. You may end up with the problem again later down the track with a DIY, or the material is up for replacement anyhow? Otherwise try Trident Electronics as the owner is a bit of an audio DIY enthusiast. I think he could tell you what's, what with a repair etc. Or you could contact Ash Brooks here in N.P. He used to own a good hi-fi shop in town, a good guy and knows his stuff. Oh yeah, never use Fastways either. I had one delivery with half the tubes smashed and another with a pre amp soaking wet. Never had a problem with Courier Post but it's all in the packaging. Try talking to a specialist packaging coy like: http://www.hardypackaging.co.nz/ Good luck mate.
  3. Mine. Frequency response 35 - 25k Sensitivity 92db Power handling 25 - 200 watts 8 Ohm Weight 25kg each Amp is 200 watts. The Linbrooks don't take 200 watts, whereas my Klipsch horns were 97db, 125 watts an inferior speaker in every respect went ridiculously loud and soaked up all the power the Perreaux had. So I think Owen is right, they are guidelines and should be taken in context. I know that doesn't help much. I'd talk to Marty @ Perreaux he may have some useful insights.
  4. My Linbrooks are. Frequency response 35 - 25k Sensitivity 92db Power handling 25 - 200 watts 8 Ohm Weight 25kg each Amp is 200 watts.

  5. You shouldn't necessarily have to replace them. Often speakers can be fixed as Owen has rightly eluded to.
  6. Have a beer, have 12! I think if nothing else mate, it clarifies your problems. That amp is powerful and looks like as case of over driving them. Hard to tell what's, what from the photos and not knowing that speaker. Send the drivers up to this guy, he's good and honest. http://www.audiomark.co.nz/
  7. Gary and Mark both impress me; more to the point, so do their products. Could not agree more. Are you going for the Reference I/C's? I have a server I must pick up, when I can be bothered.
  8. New Plymouth have a few, but Vinyl Countdown's stock just gets better, and better!
  9. Welcome to the world of Hi-Fi and congrat's on the purchase. Playing around with speaker position would be my first suggestion. It is a try and try again business. Can be very frustrating. I have some MIT Exp 3 cables here that are good entry level, neither bright or warm. A bit flat if anything but they are good enough to put in your system. I'm not looking to sell them or anything. You are welcome to try and see if changing speaker cables makes any difference. No worries. I'd say that the Perreaux needs a lot of burn in too.
  10. I just looked at the Ortofon website where you can check cartridge recommendations for a turnatable and model. They said a Red or Blue. I thought you take a step up on that? Actually, this may be a good way to narrow down a selection if other manufacturers provide the same type of info on their websites.
  11. I've got an RPM 5 and had both Dyn 10x5 and 2m Red on that. I prefer the Ortofon carts on the Project. The 10x5 is good however, and does well on my TD320 with a Mission arm.
  12. The only people who should be disgruntled are the owners, 3 isn't it? It's Moaners and Moa Hunters here. Send the units back via Harvey Norman or demand instant replacements. The product is supported by a warranty! Perreaux have in my experience been exemaplary in everything they do. I doubt their build quality has diminished because of HN. Crazy talk - their major markets are offshore. I would not be surprised the pops are actually clicks and that's not unheard of in the Dac domain. Troll away. Out.
  13. The Sumiko Pearl leans on the side of warm. I've had one in the past and found it quite dynamic for the price. IMHO the low - mid priced Projects sound better with MM and a warmish cart doesn't hurt. I think they are $250'sh. Alternatively 2M Red goes well on a Project.

    Hi Ernie, Haven't considered a particular make or model. Second hand for sure - cost considerations. 10" or 12"' I suspect around 250 watts or up. Simply an augmentation tool and not looking to shake the house down. I've tried a REL T5 before and it was okay. Looking for something musical of course. Cheers.
