  1. LAN stands for Local Area Network, which just means his home network.
  2. Sorry to break it to you, but the claim at the start of Fargo to be a true story is completely spurious Edit Soundfan beat me to it
  3. brainwavz make a similar product: http://www.brainwavzaudio.com/products/hengja-headphone-hanger
  4. The HD600 is a great headphone. If you find they have an uncomfortable clamping feeling when new, extend the headphones fully and flex the steel section of the headband. Do not flex the plastic section as this can lead to disaster!
  5. Whoops should have read your entire post above. I'd like to get together sometime. I'll PM you.
  6. i'm using 3 LS50s as LCR with a Denon 3313 AVR in a large room. The Denon is adequate but has the advantage of DSP which is useful as the room is not ideal. Running a B&W PV1D subwoofer with them which combines well and is absolutely necessary due to the room size. The X12s are in a quite small room and are amped by an OPPO HA-1 pre and Rotel RB-1552 Mk2 power. This works well. I am using a Velodyne SPL-800 Ultra subwoofer in this setup to get a bit of bass extension and to try to correct some of the room nodes with the sub's DSP. The Dynaudios are probably better suited to the larger room as I think are somewhat more dynamic /punchier than the KEFs. I've been meaning to swap things around and experiment but I haven't had the chance. What amplification are you running?
  7. Hey Adam, We seem to have some things in common. I'm also on the Gold Coast and have KEF LS50s and Dynaudio X12s
  8. The KEF LS50 is a two way design. It is not a full range driver but a mid/bass driver with a tweeter mounted at its centre.
  9. How about these? http://www.stereo.net.au/forums/index.php/topic/93994-fs-wilson-benesch-trinity-speakers/?hl=trinity

  11. Just to add some perspective to the emissions debate, it has been calculated that just the 16 largest ships produce more harmful emissions than all the world's cars combined. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-1229857/How-16-ships-create-pollution-cars-world.html
  12. I'll take the DacMagic 100 Edit: tried to PM, couldn't get through
  13. The Pioneer A-400 is a nice amp, but I doubt if it worth while spending much on getting it repaired. They sold heaps of these in the nineties and they come for sale regularly on eBay for a few hundred bucks. It won't take much of a repair bill to go over what you could pay for a working unit.
  14. My A-400 sometimes makes that dong sound when you turn it on and has a faint hum sound from the transformer so I would say that they are normal characteristics of the amp. The power light does work on my amp but it is very faint.
  15. New version has lost the optical audio output.
  16. I've had some success removing swirl marks with Meguiar's SwirlX
  17. On the topic of VW/ Audi recalls it is interesting to look at the total number of Australian recalls for the period 2010-2015: Audi. 10 BMW. 14 Mazda. 14 VW. 16 Ford. 28 Nissan. 30 M Benz. 38 Toyota. 47 Holden. 48 Audi/ VW dont look too bad on those numbers....
  18. I would say that the impressions on Changstar are mixed. Certainly not as harsh as DefQon's description. If you like a bright headphone, they are not for you. Plenty of people like them however - they are on Innerfidelity's wall of fame. It is up to the OP to try them and see if they are his cup of tea. They shouldn't be dismissed out of hand.
