  1. I prefer buying CD's from Bandcamp as often the included digital download is in high resolution. Unfortunately there is no way (that I know of) to check beforehand but even with CD quality it means you have the unopened CD to keep or sell later if you like.
  2. I should also say I did check if they were sold in Australia first but couldn't see anyone who had them.
  3. Just curious if anyone else has imported a pair of these and what they thought of them? I got a pair after reading some reviews (I know you can't believe everything you read!) but I was very impressed how they sounded for the small outlay (around AU$430 all up with DHL freight). Certainly won't become my main speaker but I enjoyed them with their clarity and good midrange. Bass wasn't too bad either but a sub might be needed those that want to rattle the windows. I also thought the soundstage was quite big for the size of the speakers. Overall I thought they were great value. As a good starter speaker or second system I would highly recommend them.
  4. All set to go (from Qobuz) once I finish work 🙂
  5. I will have to. Fan of Gillian Welch but have never listened to Rawlings doing his own stuff.
  6. Thanks for that - will check it out tonight. Bugger about the show.
  7. Item: (FOUND) Eilen Jewel "Live at the Narrows" CD Price Range: Around $30 (can land one new for $45 from US) Item Condition: New or Used (must be in good condition) Extra Info: If anyone has a copy they no longer need would be happy to buy Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible. (You can now delete this text).
  8. My CD player is marginally better SQ than my separate dac but I rarely play a CD. I still try and buy the CD of an album but rip it to my NAS and then it gets filed away. I still prefer a local copy of the music so only use Tidal or Qobuz when I can't find the CD or download a copy from somewhere, or waiting for the CD to arrive. Computer audio is only as complicated as you want to make it.
  9. I use a Consonance 880i tube amp which does sound good. Even though these speakers are marketed as being ideal for low powered tube amps they also don't mind good serve of watts either.
  10. Further information: Purchased these from Mcleans in January 2019 to try out as always curious about open baffle speakers. Upgraded soon after so have had very little use. Price is firm. *Price includes freight to mainland State metro areas. Extra cost may apply to other areas. Photos:
  11. Please check with Greg Osborn before putting KT150’s into a 880i I have an 880i from Greg that came with KT120’s but when I asked later about putting in KT150’s he said not to do it. I can’t remember the reason (will have to find the email) but from what I remember there was either a difference from my unit to the newer ones or they came from the factory setup for the KT150’s specifically.
  12. I am curious how much work is involved in doing this and is it something the average person should attempt? Just thinking ahead for when my panel/s will need to be shipped to Melbourne from WA.
  13. I'm shocked that you could think so badly of the record labels For those that are true vinyl fans then the revival is great. But for someone to buy a record and play it on a $100 turntable/speaker all-in-one it is just a marketing/fad thing that the record companies are making the most of while it lasts. $50 for a new release on vinyl is a joke imo.
  14. Item: Topping DX3 Pro Headphone DAC/AMP Location: WA Price: $170 including postage Item Condition: Like New (maybe a bit of dust) Reason for selling: Not being used - sitting on my desk gathering dust Payment Method: Cash, Paypal Extra Info: Purchased in June 2019 from Hifi Gear Online. Used once or twice only. Includes all packaging/cables/manual/remote. Photos:
