  1. I just travelled 4 flights in total with the Sony 1000xm3. Personal verdict is that they are fantastic for flights, I couldn't hear the engine noise but the cabin crew voices still came through. Compared the noise cancelling to the business class supplied noise cancelling headphones and it was far superior. I fell asleep wearing the Sony's, comfortable enough but did have sweaty ears! Sound quality is good enough I think... Not super high-end but considering the noise cancelling, 30hour battery and comfort on my head I will not travel without them.

  7. Item: primare owe integrated amplifier with optional dac Location: Melbourne east Price: $800, retail is $2k Item Condition: good see pics Reason for selling: no longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Bought this off another member, have used lightly since then and drove my elac speakers amazingly well. The previous owner had a couple of scratches on the top rear panel which is repaired with permanent marker, the photos makes it worse as it's hard to notice normally. I've priced this unit quite low with this in mind. I have borrowed the previous ad description and photos below: had this little Primare for over a year. Initially it was driving the LS50, then put on sole duty of driving the electrostatic Acoustat Z22. Even on its 85db efficiency, the 80W Primare punched out loud bass effortlessly. For a class D amp it is surprisingly smooth, detailed and quiet. The condition of this amp is very good, however stupid me when I stack other component on top it caused some scratches on the top lid. I used black marker pen to hide it with good result. The photo exaggerate any defects so you can see that clearly on the last photo. If you don't look closely you wont notice it. Now the Acoustat is sold so this amp is no longer needed. Local pickup preferred but I can also ship on your expense.
