    Best passive studio monitors for under 1k

    I would second the Dynaudio m20. I have a set and they are great for the price especially if you likea bit more in the low frequency end. They are also very good for 2 channel listening.
  3. Did you end up getting an integrated amp? If you can keep both ie integrated for music and the sony for movies. Because anyone here if they are being honest will tell you that your receiver is a crap choice for music especially if thats what youre after 70% of the time. MF or CA would be fine and a huge improvement on that Sony.

    Hello from Perth!

    Welcome crane ..........from another Perthie
  6. I had one of these a couple of years ago and sold it locally. I always regretted selling it. Probably one the best amps you could buy at that price! Im sure this will go quick.

    What is the 'Cambridge Audio' sound?

    My first integrated was the azur 851a great amp and should have kept it for my second system. House sound is kind of a myth. The 851a had a different sound when played with B&W , different again with the big Ushers and yep different with my dynaudios. Subjective

    Why have Multiple Cartridges?

    Yep...what all of the above said. As audio enthusiasts we are on the eternal quest for the perfect sound. Shibata, microline styli , mm/mc they all sound different.

    FS: Musical Fidelity M6 500i

    This is a fantastic integrated amp and at that price someone would be getting a real bargain. I have compared my m6500i to reference amps double and almost triple the price and it compared equally if not better probably due to the power on tap. This would be an end game amp for many GLWTS.

  11. Item: Thor PS10 Smart Power Station & Smart Board Location: Canning Vale WA Price: $550 Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: No Longer Required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD Only Extra Info: Bought from another SNA Member. I have had this for approximately 6 months and is no longer required . It is in very good condition but has a cosmetic mark on the right side front face of the unit which was already there when I purchased from fellow SNA member 'Soundguy' (Please see pics), obviously this does not impact on the working order of the unit. Includes 8 plug Smart Board .Comes from a pet free/ smoke free home. I do not have the original boxes etc and due to the weight this is a Perth only sale. Pictures:

    Hi @SoundGuy just a few questions. Is this a gen 1 or 2 and do you still have the side bits? Finally what's the phono stage on it like?

    Amp recommendation, Monitor Audio RX6

    If you can get hold of a preowned cambridge audio 851a that will match nicely as will the musical fidelity. Havnt heard the exposure amp so cant comment. If youre going into 2 channel definitely get rid of the receiver. CA 851a with a opp 105 will keep you very happy.
