    ML2 Stands: What Height should they be?

    @Assisi I know you aren't ready but have you thought of which way will the future speaker upgrade will go? And can I ask the model of Amp and Dac you have settled on?

    ML2 Stands: What Height should they be?

    @Assisi How much did the speakers wobble when the springs were between the speakers and stands? Surely once they are settled then they wouldn't wobble? Did you take any pictures when they were in situ?

    Good DAC for TV?

    I am interested in this too. I watch a lot of Netflix through my two channel set up. Plus a bit of music from youtube and at times will hook up my PC to stream Tidal ( via HDMI to the TV ) I have the HDMI going from my Optus Box to the TV and then the TV Optical Out to an intergrated amp with a DAC to the speakers. It is a SONY TV as well. Would much be happening to the signal ( the 0's and 1's ) before it hits the DAC in the intergrated? Would spending money on a DAC be worth it over the DAC in the Amp? The Intergrated Amp is the Indiana Line Puro 800.

    ML5

    @Lenehan Audio will the speaker using the Seas Exotic tweeter and the Satori woofer look the same as the current ML2 or will you have to alter the design in order to achieve the above?
  6. Item: Pro-ject Pre Box S2 Digital Preamp Location: Southern Sydney Price: 300 ( RRP 599 ( now down to 499 ) - happy to post for $15 to the eastern states, $20 for others. Item Condition: Nearly new, bought last month Reason for selling: NLR - my Primare Amp died and I bought this last month thinking I was going to get have to get an older Sansui type amp and use this as the remote and DAC, but will be picking up a DAC Intergrated Amplifier instead Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Blurb... Pre Box S2 Digital marks a new era for our S-series components. For the very first time we are using a dual mono configuration with the highest class D/A converters of ESS Sabre. Their flagship DAC-chip ensures highest class audio in a small and affordable package. This DAC is capable of high resolution audio up to 32bit/768kHz PCM and DSD512! Pre Box S2 Digital is also the very first of our devices to support hardware MQA unfolding. It’s also the premiere of our proprietary Optimum transient digital filter and our proprietary clock circuitry design. Digital audio is the art of time, with our new proprietary clock design we have managed jitter rates of unrivalled 100 Femtoseconds, this easily outperforms many renowned and respected audiophile clock generators! With organic polymer capacitors and thin film miniMELF resistors we were able to create a tiny device that will blow away even much bigger components for a much higher price. With a total of eight digital filters the sound can be shaped precisely to the listeners liking. Pre Box S2 Digital is fully remoteable, it can also control the playback software of a computer. You can use Play, Pause, Forward and Rewind straight with your Pre Box S2 Digital! There are a couple of video reviews... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_3RUADt81x8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5Sko3SFxn8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SdPYUpcP0SU And the printed word... https://darko.audio/2018/03/pro-jects-densely-packed-s2-digital/ https://www.headfonia.com/review-pro-ject-audio-pre-box-s2/ Sorry about the blur, but really this is brand new with out a mark.

    Rob181's Fantastic ML2 Limited's

    From what I can gather the ML2 are still being made as is. You can work out with Mike how far you want to go with the Limiteds, ie what you want to include. But looks like he is in the process of trying out new tweeters and drivers. In the ML5 thread he talks about a Satori project and how he would like to try the Seas Exotic T35 tweeter with them. So best get in touch with him if you want more info.

  11. Item: Apogee Acoustic Centuarus Ribbon Monitors Location: Southern Sydney ( 2232 ) Price: 400 ono Item Condition: Used Reason for selling: NLR ( selling on my brothers behalf ) Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: My brother bought these from the Audio Connection 8 years ago and paid $2000. They were USD 1000 each when new. My brother used them 'upside down' so as to have the tweeter on top. So the bottom has the normal wear and tear you would see on speakers sitting on a shelf. They have a couple of marks, I have taken photos of the spots. The worse one is on the bottom, but I took a picture of it in its worst position and then another with it tucked under as it normally would. Other than that they look really good and sound great. There is a bit of info on these on the web. Here are the specs. Specifications Height 16 inches Width 9.5 inches Depth 11.5 inches Bass driver 6.5" port loaded dynamic woofers Midrange 4" rotatable ribbon tweeter Max Sound Level ~100dB Sensitivity @ 3m ~88dB Frequency response 45Hz (-3dB) to 20kHz Suggested amp power 50W (8 ohm load) Impedance nominal 6 ohms Weight 26lbs each Finishes available Black Ash, American Walnut optional Hi-Gloss black $300 Price (1996) $700 Pictures:
