  1. I run a set of these modules - really nice amps.
  2. These guys have a good selection of drivers https://www.wagneronline.com.au/
  3. I realize you already have an amp, but one option would be to sell that and buy some active studio monitors. Most have great flexibility in shaping the response to your liking and make them as warm sounding as you like. You can get them with ribbon tweeters (a set of Adam A7X with ribbon tweeters is around $2k). You'd also regain some desk space by eliminating the amp.
  4. Some interesting gear for those near Williamstown VIC. JBL, Tannoy, nice old Pioneer valve receiver, Fostex, horns etc. https://www.ebay.com.au/sch/oz038/m.html?item=293083878904
  5. Item: Samson Servo 200 Power Amplifier Location: Surfcoast VIC Price: $75 Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: Excess to requirements Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: Amp works well, very slight crackle as one attenuator passes an indent when turned. Speaker protection relay has been upgraded to NTE brand. Some marks and scratches on case, slight bend on rear frame protrusion. Pictures:
  6. I think bigger fullrange drivers that are more directional might work better in this application. You want to beam it up and have that beam reflect from the ceiling. That said, I think you'll achieve some lobing with multiple drivers, but I'm not sure to what effect in that arrangement.
  7. The value of the amp makes it not worth the cost/time involved. I'll hang on to it or sell it as a DIY project for someone else to wire up. Cheers :-)
  8. I actually never used one as the SMPS is supposedly Class 2 compliant if the minimum clearances are observed. It was used rarely enough and only by myself that I deemed it an acceptable risk at the time. In hindsight that might have been poor judgement on my part and an overestimation of my design abilities.
  9. This is a great point and something I was just thinking about. I feel that's probably the most important thing. I don't have issues with using double insulated gear - it's pretty common (and my efforts are probably a lot safer than much of the cheap non approved imported 240v stuff available now - like the hoverboards), but I'd never forgive myself if something went wrong. I've decided that I will either keep it or let the next person make the choice. Cheers for the input.
  10. Cheers, will err on the side of caution I think and either keep it or sell it as a kit of parts.
  11. Just after some thoughts. I'm considering selling my DIY Hypex UCD180 amp, which I've built roughly to Class II clearances etc. and left un-earthed to avoid ground loops. If I sell it with full disclosure of "DIYness" and the mains wiring, am I liable if something goes wrong? Am I better off removing the IEC connector and letting the purchaser take care of making sure they are happy with it safety-wise? Cheers!
  12. You can buy from their retail site https://www.wagneronline.com.au/peerless-1-headphone-driver-diaphragm/speaker-drivers/audio-speakers-pa/hpd-40n16-76691/994238/pd/
  13. Great to hear you've made this discovery. I'm currently getting a lot of joy out of an old $30 set of Boston bookshelf speakers thanks to some Martini XHD panels.
  14. I wondered that too. A bit of discussion around it on the MiniDSP forums https://www.minidsp.com/forum/dirac-series-support/13793-dirac-live-2018-2-0-minidsp-support?limitstart=0
  15. Thought this might be of interest to Dirac users https://www.dirac.com/news/2017/12/7/dirac-research-to-introduce-the-next-generation-of-its-acclaimed-dirac-live-platform-at-ces-2018
