    It is natural I assume? I am not sure what you mean by carbonised?

    Yes Bunnings Bamboo panels (cut to size at no extra charge on site) are much better than any kind of plywood and I have compared it to birch core marine ply as well as AAA core voidless 29mm custom pressed marine plywood. So not only cheaper, but in my opinion, better.

    I agree with Muon N' – in my experience Bamboo seems to act as an effective seismic 'sink' so is best mechanically isolated from what is supporting it. I use a mixture of springs and polymers.

    My vote is for bamboo.

  10. ITEM: Laboratorium YTER Speaker Cables (2 x 3.0m pairs) and YTER spade adaptors (8) REDUCED TO CLEAR LOCATION: PERTH PRICE: $1,750 Retail = $7,200 AUD (4,600 EURO) ITEM CONDITION: EXCELLENT – in original Italian leather satchels REASON FOR SELLING: UPGRADED – no longer required. PAYMENT METHOD: Paypal EXTRA INFO: These cables were specifically developed by Sonus Faber’s legendary designer Franco Serblin in partnership with metallurgist Massimiliano Favella for Sonus Faber’s flagship speakers – the Stradivarius Homage. The Yter speaker cables are entirely hand built with the signal conductor formed from a proprietary alloy of high purity Silver and Palladium into a solid ribbon (2.4mm x 0.4mm) in a Gaussian geometry that is twisted inside PTFE dielectric tube and terminated with their own custom built banana plugs fabricated from the same solid Silver/Palladium alloy. I also have 8 of their hard to find YTER Spade Adaptors, which I understand are also formed from the same Silver/Palladium alloy. These cables possess a rare level of transparency and natural tone and were used between my Absolare 845 mono block SET amps and Voxativ field coil speakers with outstanding results. I am only selling now because I have just upgraded to the incredible Echole Limited Edition and these are no longer required. Although each pair of YTER in their own right are stunning to listen to, I purchased two pairs of the YTER speaker cables because when doubled up using Spade Adaptors at either end, the combination becomes even more amazing to listen to and are an extremely compelling speaker cable that is greater than the sum of its parts and compares well to cables many times their price. Both pairs come supplied in their own original luxurious Italian black leather satchels. Martin Collom’s YTER review can be seen here: http://www.audio.grobel.com.pl/files/rec/yter/576yter_spkr_hfc_2008.pdf PURCHASE OPTIONS: I prefer to sell both pairs together with all 8 Spade Adaptors as a priority and have priced it all accordingly. Should buyers be interested in single pairs, the separate costings are as follows; 2 x 3.0m pairs YTER speaker cables (bananas) PLUS 8 x YTER Spade Adaptors = $1,750 1 x 3.0m pair YTER speaker cables (bananas) PLUS 4 x YTER Spade Adaptors = $950 8 x YTER Spade Adaptors = $240 PICTURES: Attached are actual cables for sale.

    Thomas Mayer (vinylsavor) power amp

    I have been dealing with Thomas for approx 5 years mostly about tubes including ELROG. In my dealings with him he has been reliable and honest ands I am using new generation Elrog ER845 tubes which are simply superb. I cannot vouch for his amps as I do not own any of his gear – I use Absolare 8435 SET amps and tube preamp. He is extremely knowledgable about tubes their history and tube circuits and is a prolific designer and builder of tube amps of many kinds. Good luck !
