  1. It’s very cool. The Marantz CD 60 does the same thing. I used to make very good use of that feature! GLWS! (Feeling nostalgic and very tempted, too ... )
  2. This is so not cool. Even worse is that I probably live less than 5 minutes away ... I’m going to unplug my internet now. GLWS!
  3. Legend Joeys. Current V10 over $1k, but I’m sure a deal could be done. Of course there are nine earlier versions that can be had for well under $1k s/h (Pretty sure I paid around $800 for V2, new)
  4. Agree with all above. My 540R died after barely 5 years due to some malfunction of the surround sound decoder. Unrepairable due to lack of parts. Waste of bloody money, but I didn’t know any better and it did sound pretty nice in stereo. Buy a new receiver for your $700 for the cheaper technology, or a basic 2 channel integrated new or used that will probably last for decades.
  5. Not quite true. CAV stocks Legend speakers. Designed and made right here in Australia (Canberra AFAIK). Of course you could buy direct, but then you wouldn’t get to listen to them first, or have local support. Legend bookshelves in the $2k-$4k range = Kurre with list price $1,990.
  6. Just go to Carlton Audio Visual. They will happily demo a massive range of high end bookshelf speakers for as long as your ears can take. A sample of of their range is on the website, but better to go in store and let them guide you.
  7. Will someone hurry up and buy these. I already have two pairs of Joeys, and I really can’t justify a third. Honestly!!
  8. Can’t help you with the Neats, but I use Legend Joey speakers with Naim NAC72 and NAP140, and they are perfectly balanced. Legend designer is ex Linn, so very much in the Naim mould. Assuming you are running a NAP 200 or better, have a look at these: http://www.legendspeakers.com.au/products-kantu/ Cheers J
  9. I use these to run digital sources into a Naim pre/power setup... https://audioprincipe.com.au/interconnects/attenuated-10db-twisted-pair-interconnects/ great for managing gain with no discernable effect on sound quality.
  10. Leema Tucana fed by Leema Antila CD through some Legend floorstanders (can’t remember which). Amazingly rich, textured and detailed. Naim NAC72 pre and NAP140 power through Legend Joey II (my system), once I put in NACA 5 speaker cables. Id like to try a Naim NAP200 ...
  11. Spend the 1k on a dac. Source first and all that.
  12. Downloaded. My first streaming foray. Sounds great too! Thanks
  13. I’m a fan of Audio Principe for four reasons: 1. I really like their attenuated interconnects, as I find the 2.5V + outputs of most DACs and CD players don’t let my amps “breathe” 2. They’re good value, and not expensive to start with 3. They’re made right here in Oz 4. Peter Graves is a top bloke. Cheers J
  14. My speaker journey has been mercifully short ... 1987 or thereabouts - JBL TLX16 Around 2004 - surround sound with 5x Legend Joey IIs and a Kurlette sub 2015 - 2 pairs of Joey IIs and the Kurlette in use (in various 2 channel systems), keeping the 5th Joey II as a spare. Future - maybe some Legend Kurre or Kantu. Otherwise, I'm happy
  15. Following a recent positive experience purchasing from Peter, I thought the least I could do was to publicly express my appreciation for a local manufacturer who not only stands behind his product, but takes full responsibility for the buyer's interests. After Aussie Post successfully delivered my -10dB ICs to someone who wasn't me (under tracked Express Post no less!), Peter immediately offered to send another pair, no cost, and no assurance of ever seeing the first pair again (other than if the original recipient "did the right thing" and sent them to his return address). They arrived in less than 24 hours (interstate). That, ladies and gentlemen, is what I call service! The fact that the ICs sound excellent, and do exactly what I was hoping for in my system, is no surprise given the honesty and attention with which Peter treats his customers. Anyway, he's a decent, honest bloke and should be recognised as such. Cheers, Mute
