  1. QUAD 606 & 34 Combo

    This would be lovely with my Sonus Faber Liuto floor standers... Ahhh the pain of poredom. What would my Roksan Kandy integrated be worth?
  2. Bang & Olufsen Active Speakers

    I remember the 7.4 being quite light so a plasterboard wall should hold them. Right now I've seen that picture - that what i want to do. Now to get hunting for some speakers
  3. Bang & Olufsen Active Speakers

    THAT is exactly what i was thinking but wall mounted. I think it looks great.
  4. Bang & Olufsen Active Speakers

    They are amazing (although a little shrill to be honest). the foot print is too big and they are just too tall for my space. Beolab 2 helped to even them out a bit but that was never a great sub. Very slow and lumpy. So many great stories. I do miss working there.

    B&O staff do get a discount but they don't pay enough for staff to afford the gear even with the discount. That being said B&O was great to work for and a lovely product to sell. The customers were fantastic and some of the homes you get to see are amazing. Those that make a good income with B&O are those that have stuck at it for a long time to build a regular client base.

    Yeah. I like the Beolab 12's but your right, too expensive for me. I did think about beolab 4000's but i'm not there with the heavy focus on toein with the design of these. They do sound great though... Beolab 3's are a great loudspeaker but they do stick out a bit when wall mounted. much better suited to a shelf placement. Maybe now that the Beolab 5's are discontinued they'll come way way way way way down in price.. I was working for B&O when the 5's were released and read all the research papers and the develpment of the the lens's. I knew all the cross over points and the frequency responce (i think they were down to 20hz and -3db & 12hz at -10db!!!!) I'm getting off track..... Perhaps i should spend the money on 12's for the front and perhaps 7.4's for the rear.

    Dispersion is what B&O are all about. The Beolab 5's, 3's and some of the newer panel style speakers all have an acoustic lens on the tweeter (the 5's also on the mids). I'm not sure that dispersion is the issue. I'm wondering if at a stereo pair if the 7.4 will actually sound any good given that they are a center speaker and my be heavily biased towards midrange... Thanks for your comments on the SUB. The PV1 is expensive. Beolab 1's and Pentas are just too tall. I love them both but I really want to wall mount.

    Yeah Powerlink to RCA or something like that. The adapters are available.
  9. Hi All, Just wondering your thoughts on this idea for a 5.1 system. I'm looking to get a high WAF and to be truthful i love B&O. What about using Beolab 7.4 wall mounted as Front Right & Left plus another 2 for the rears and a Beloab 7.1 for the center speaker. These can be had 2nd hand for around $400-$500 each. All these are active speakers so would need to use the preouts from my receiver plus get power points etc installed and i'd need a good sub (B&W PV1?) Beolab 7.4 was a very expensive mono center speaker supplied with Beovision 7's. Beolab 7.4 http://stores.bang-olufsen.com/united-states/bang-olufsen-newbury-street/pre-owned/beolab-7-4-black Beolab 7.1 http://sound-affair.com/beolab-7-1-silver Do you think this will work and would it sound pretty good?

  11. Wow - they look nice with the covers off...
  12. SOLD: FS: APPLE EarPods with Lightning Connector

    I love that you are downsizing..... GLWTS I also find these a very acceptable listen..
  13. La La Land

    Just watching La La Land and it seems that the mix is in stereo and not surround. Even the center channel is silent. I'm streaming it via Apple TV. I don't feel like any of the dialogue is missing. It's just a very obvious left and right mix. Anyone else had a similar experience? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Item: MYRYAD ZI40 Stereo Integrated Amplifier Location: Mount Gambier SA 5290 Price: $250 (negotiable) Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Not being used Payment Method: EFT, Paypal Extra Info: I bought this amplifier from this site a few years ago. I always wanted to try a piece of myryad but it didn't work for my ears. Lots of power and current on tap (don't know the exact specs though, i'm really a bit of an audio hack ) I have the box, the remote and the destructions manual. I paid $250 for it so would love to re coup my money but i'm open to fair offers. My photos are on the white stool the photos from the original seller are on the brown table. I can post at buyers expense as it is well boxed. Pictures:
  15. If it was practical to ship these i'd have them. Seriously one of the best bargains i've seen on this site. Why haven't they been snapped up?
