  1. Welcome to SNA.. It is a privilege for us to have interest and nembers from abroad.. We have a friendly and knowledgeable online club here.. Cheers from 'Down Under'
  2. I had a SA100 MK1 ( updated by Plinius) Selling it for a VTL 75/75 was one of the more stupid things I've done.. Wish I still had it.. Incredible Amp.
  3. If they are not shamed by the huge reputation ( and price tag) of the Plinius SA100 MK3 then they are a bargain indeed GLWTS
  4. Spot on (aussievintage) .. I've been caught twice. Firstly buying a 'far too large' floorstanders thinking bigger was better only to have Overblown Bass in my room Secondly , bought a VTL 75/75 Tube amp that couldn't control Some Mirage M990 speakers resulting in Flabby Sound... In both cases I was ignorant, heard the VTL with JBL Paragon Horns ( $40,000 amazing) and the swift talking salesman never queried what i was hooking them up to . I was a youngster and didn't know any better and just shelled out the cash ... beware

  6. The difficulty one has is : Because Speaker and Amplifier technology in 2020 is so mature, I'm not sure if there are any really 'bad amps' or ' bad speakers' out ( does anyone know any?) a bit like there arn't any bad Japanese cars.. However, it's important to find components that work well in tandem together-(Synergy).. Once you have synergy sorted, then every 'synegised' stereo will have a different flavour.. Then it comes down to your preference.. Perception is reality.. if it sounds better to you, then... it is better. Having an actual listen to a couple of setups is worth more than reading 10 reviews imo..
  7. +1 on what 'stereo coffee' said.. A 3 way design has the benefit ( over a 2 way) of each driver being more specialised and doing less work and having a more coherent sound. The Big Caveat though, is unless the Very Complicated Crossover design is very well executed, those benefits fly out the window. In that case, a well implemented 2 way would surpass a poorly implemented 3 way.
  8. There was a Pub in Auckland that my band used to play. Had a Goat roam around inside called 'Victor'. Victor used to eat the Patrons liten cigarettes!
  9. Spot on.. 'More Performance than what you pay for' no doubt . And while every ones ears are different, many are cursed sadly with unrealistic expectations..
  10. When Vincent Amps come up in the classifieds, they don't seem to hang around long. Indicates to me they're well regarded.
  11. Hi Darryl. I owned a large guitar store for 12 years. Was a Gibson Custom shop dealer.. Toby my Rabbit likes Expensive Les Pauls
  12. Yes(Muon).. My sister wouldn't have known or cared.. Just a bit of a personal embarrassment for me being 'The Man around Town' within the family knowing all about Hifi and all.. and really knowing sweet bugger all lol...
  13. George looks like he's just getting comfortable for a great listening session.
  14. I bought the 400X model many years ago, helping my sister cobble together a system, only to find later, after doing some research the A400X i had bought was not as good as the previous model (A400) If you weren't aware (like me), you could pick up the wrong model in error..
