  1. The ones I use are a similar design but fully insulated. Love 'em. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com.au%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F303088736927
  2. Same situation here. When we moved into our current premises in May 2017 the connection date was October 2017. Still waiting. Current date is Jan-March 2020
  3. I have no angst against Bose. The OP was looking for alternatives to Bose, so I put forward the Sony's which have been often been cited in reviews as being superior to the Bose (which are themselves top class NC performers). I also noted that some people have had reliability issues with the Bose, just as some people have apparently had issues with the earlier Sonys.
  4. I'm glad that Snoopy8 has had a successful experience with his Bose, however, just do a google search on it. Lots of complaints about about Bose NC headphones failing on one side.
  5. Sony WH-1000MX3 are said to be the best noise-cancellers available. The previous model WH-1000MX2 are pretty similar and you might pick some up a little cheaper. The Bose are good but I have read that their reliability is a bit suspect.
  6. I remember seeing an earlier thread on this topic. Have you tried searching for one?
  7. Gold 50 was the replacement for the GX50. Surface of the Gold 50 woofer has dimples kind of like a golf ball. GX50 woofer has radiating ridges. Gold 50 has a fabric grill while GX50 has a perforated metal grill. Otherwise they look the same. I don't know if they sound much different.
  8. I suspect the fact that LS50's come up for sale regularly is probably due to KEF selling a huge number of them in the first place.
  9. You are correct that low frequencies appear to be non directional, but the idea of using 2 subs is not to create a stereo effect but rather to smooth out peaks and nulls in the frequency response caused by the acoustics of the room.
  10. It is an airport express not an apple TV Cheers
  11. I'll just point out that your ad says 2010 but the box says 3010 and your stock photo is of a 'leather' finish rather than gloss black. Cheers
  12. I'd like to be part of this as well, if that is OK.
  13. Scam. I think those adds have been removed now.
  14. Checked the small print:: If your Import Order arrives in Australia and the customs value is greater than the ‘low value import threshold’ (currently AUD$1,000, subject to change at any time), you may be required to lodge a Customs Import Declaration and pay the relevant Taxes. For further information, please consult the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service website at www.customs.gov.au.
  15. These appear to be a direct import so taxes will have to be added. Warranty might be a problem too
