  1. I have a pair of these. Quite a remarkable speaker to my ears, particularly given their size.
  2. Thanks everyone for your helpful advice. Much appreciated. I suggested he bid on that Bladelius Tyr that recently sold on ebay (It seemed to have a good combination of dac, phono and power in an affordable package) but he just lost out on that and was pipped at the post. We also discussed vintage Sansui/luxman and looked at some rotels, but there seemed a preference to buy something newer. He ended up buying a Rega Elex(r) yesterday in the end which I understand has a good phono stage (for the new the Rega RP3 ) and some sufficient wattage to drive the B&W 685s. Hopefully that's a good match. We did discuss the option of a valve amp, but I think the idea scared him this early on his audio journey. I will mention the Eleys cartridge upgrade (*thanks!) Next step is a budget DAC/streamer. (And thanks for the radiostation recommendation @doogie44. We will take a listen) Cheers Dave
  3. Item: Rega Elex(r) Price Range: $1000 Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: Hi does anyone have one of these amplifiers for sale? Trying to help a buddy in Hobart track one down. Cheers
  4. Hi stereonet community I am trying to help a friend with some system choices, who is spending most of his time bunkered down listening to Jazz records after a recent separation. He has a limited budget of about $1500 to $2000. He has a decent new RP3 and some B&W 685s. He has an entry level NAD which isn't driving the B&W's well. He is looking for a sonic upgrade of the amp, phono stage and potentially a DAC. Does anyone recommend anything in particular that might do all of those things well? Or some good separate components on the market place that you might recommend. I haven't seen much in the classifieds of this nature in the past few weeks. Second hand options I had in mind were the Rega Elex(r), a Simaudio NEO-ACE, Naim Uniti, Cyrus 1, maybe a Creek Destiny. Would welcome any feedback? Hope everyone is keeping safe out there. D
  5. Thanks all. And a reminder for everyone to be cautious of transaction with sellers that have no posting history and to be extra diligent in those situations including using paypal.
  6. Hi everyone A warning to be careful of scammers and this email is also to notify admin. I posted a wanted a few months ago in the classifieds, seeking a Naim Star and recently received a private message from Rob Moller stating he had a friend that had one and to email him if I was interested. I emailed the said person and received the following email: Dave - Thanks for reaching out. Sorry for the delay in response as I was busy with meetings. I just got a chance to check my mail. Yes, I have a Naim Uniti Star for sale in excellent condition. Absolutely mint condition. Purchased two months ago. I have decided to stick with my Uniti Atom as I don't need the CD player and extra power. All original packaging, accessories and manuals are included. I’m selling due to lack of use. Price is $3050 shipped. I'm in Sydney and will ship via UPS. Payment will be sent to my bitcoin wallet or bank transfer. What is your complete shipping address? Kind regards Richard There were immediately a few alarm bells raised at the mention of bitcoin wallets, UPS, bank transfers and shipping addresses prior to any real discussion about the sale. When I emailed back and indicated I happened to be in Sydney and could inspect - surprise, surprise, no response and deafening silence. Be careful out there everyone. David
  7. Thanks for the message! I have't tried the Neo Ace yet, but that could also be an option. However, I'm also drawn to the Naim colour screens and would be open to trying something different.
  8. Item: Naim Atom or Naim Uniti Star Price Range: open to trade offers or buying outright Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: NA I currently have a Simaudio i.3 integrated amplifier with a Simaudio 280 D DAC/streamer driving some Dynaudio Special 40s. This setup sounds fantastic (and I adore the Moons) but I am interested in exploring a single NAIM unit - in particular the Naim Atom or Uniti Star. Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible. (You can now delete this text).
  9. Yep, a bargain right here - surprised these haven’t been picked up
