  3. Not really an option with my room layout. About as far out as I can go, so that is one of the reasons they are up for sale. Cannot give them the room to really open up as they deserve.
  4. Item: Spendor D9 in Dark Walnut Location: Perth Price: ********* $7,900********** Final, Final, Price drop as edited on 13 May 19 Item Condition: Brand new condition, only 6 weeks use, fresh from a new sealed carton Reason for selling: Simply did not work out in my room/system/taste Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, only Extra Info: These are brand new, only been used 6 weeks from. I have the sales reciept to prove this, so they still have the 5 year warranty for the new owner. Purchased from the Authorised Australian importer (Audiofix) just before the importer rights shifted to a new Australian distributor. However this warranty will still stand, that has been 100% confirmed. I took a punt on these due to a price that was too good to pass up. Unfortunatly these just did not work out in my room / system / taste. I have put 200 hours throught them and I just know that even with a bit more or a lot more run in that the sound is just not for me. I am 100 % gutted, because I desperately tried so hard to like them, but once you know a pair of speakers are not for you, you just know, and nothing will change your mind. The revised new RRP with the new Australian distributor is now $16,000, so a substantial saving and a bargain for someone who is after a pair. Last time I posted them for sale, a lot of people asked if there was a defect or anything wrong with them. Nothing is wrong at all, it is just me who does not like them, I am very, very pickey about speakers and I took a punt because of an attractive price without a chance to demo. them first, and I got caught out because of it. Due to the shipping cost a very strong preference for a local WA buyer. An interstate sale is still possible, buyer pays shipping cost. Of course a home demo. is always possible for any serious buyer. Pictures:
  5. I have now made these for sale. Didn’t work out for me unfortunately, so someone is going to save some $$$$$$$
  6. No mate, need a digital out to input to the n-DAC.
  7. Item: NAIM Audio n-DAC Location: Perth Price: $2,500 Item Condition: Used, but very, very good condition 9/10 and only because of age Reason for selling: Surplus to needs Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Only Extra Info: Truly a great little DAC, there are reviews and forums are all over the internet with praise for this little gem from NAIM Audio. It is a very, very fine DAC for not silly money, however partner it with a NAIM power supply and it grows in soudstage width, height and depth. Resolution also grows substantially. The full RRP was $5,400, sadly naim have decided to discontinue this masterpiece, what demo. units are out there is it, and these are well above what I am offering. I'll throw in a NAIM Burndy power supply cable for free (RRP of $900). Latest software loaded. Have original box, manual, blank plug for PS upgrade, power cord. Strong preference for local Perth sale, however may ship interstate at buyers expense. Cheers. Pictures:
  8. Cheers for the comments guys. Yeah Harbeth, I am hesitant to look at these. Not because they are not any good, by all accounts they’re a superb speaker from a superb company. Just worried I will go to the “too smooth and easy listening” side of neutral. It’s a fine line from just a bit too much energy I have now wth Spendor D9 to a bit more relaxed Harbeth. I was hoping the Neat was between the two being a bit more relaxed than D9, but not as fully relaxed as Harbeth.
  9. Trying to figure out a few speaker options that may work out for me. I recently got a Spendor D9 and they are not working out for me. Everyhing is fine/great with them , just an annoying upper mids./ lower treble mismatch with my full Naim Audio set up. I have spent 2 weeks looking at a possible replacement. The Neat XL6 has me very interested. They are a know match with Naim electronics, actually a very good match by all accounts. Anyone care to throw some comments out there in regards to Neat Acoustics and the Ultimatum range ?
  10. Just PM'd you with an in depth reply mate.
  11. Mate, it is really bugging me that I perhaps got this so wrong with my speaker / system / room matching. I have PM'd you to discuss in depth.
  12. Item: Spendor D9, Dark Walnut Location: Perth Price: ********** $ 9,500 ************ Revised price Item Condition: Brand new condition, only 25 days use, fresh from a new sealed carton Reason for selling: Simply did not work out in my room/system/taste Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Only Extra Info: These are brand new, only been used 10 days from the date this post was placed.

  13. A full naim audio set up, so that is one possibility. Perhaps my rig , room , recordings I used and my hearing preferences combined to not like these. Shame, as I loved almost all of what I heard in my demo. and they are by all accounts a quality brand and a quality speaker. Just one of those things I guess.
  14. Dave, Yep had the PMC 25.26 for a home demo. Almost got them, then I tried a few less flattering recordings and they had a real spitty, unpleasant upper mid. treble hash that spoiled it for me. Pity - as the rest of it was awesome , bass, PRaT off the charts etc. Glad you said the Paradigm Persona, always wanted to see what the fuss is about with them. They seem to have what I am after , spec.wise anyway. I’ll have to swing by and check them out. Not real keen on Focal, except the Sopra 2/3, thought they were marvellous at a Surrounds evening with Naim driving them. But I suspect they need much more room to open up than I can give them.
  15. Another thing , that now upon reflection that I noticed and just remembered , at the dealers was a really, really high soundstage with the Contour 60. Like vocals appeared to be 2m tall above the center sweet spot. I can only give 2.5m from my seat to speaker centre soundstage. So the strange vocal hight will only be exaggerated I assume. Think I’ll cross these of my list.
