  1. SOLD: EOI: Group buy on vinyl mailers SYDNEY

    OK, so not really looking like there will be enough interest to get to 160 units and at this point I've been offered an alternate supply so I'll take that. @kand, we can continue in PM. Thanks all
  2. SOLD: EOI: Group buy on vinyl mailers SYDNEY

    Cool, got you down Their first price break is 40 i.e. one box where they come down to 3.85 each. If I bought 160 at 2.90 then shipped you a box they would end up almost the same price anyway. So the group buy in Melbourne seems like a good idea At the moment waiting for a response from supplier to find out lead time. It seems the AU address is just some sort of shipping forwarder. PS.Thanks Marc for the approval
  3. Item: Vinyl mailers Location: Newport 2106, Mascot, ? Price: See below Item Condition: New Reason for selling: Group buy Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: I'm eyeing these vinyl mailers here: https://www.lilpackaging.com.au/buy-packaging/book-wraps-packaging-book-mailers/clp-bukwrap/ In small qty the price is silly (almost $7 with GST) but if I bought enough of them the price comes down to $2.90 each (inc GST). So I'm wondering if there's enough interest for a group buy. They would be pickup in Newport 2106, and I can arrange a meeting in Mascot (current available dates Nov 26 and Dec 19 evening), and/or perhaps somewhere else on a weekend. (Not going to drive everywhere to deliver though, just one or two meetings ) Interested in say 20? More? Less? Pse post a note with number wanted below. In the unlikely event that there's enough interest to buy 400 (!), the price comes down to $2.30 each. I'm not keen on re-shipping small lots and would much rather focus on a couple of meetups in Sydney. Note also that the same company also sells a smaller one, but I need this larger one. I suppose I could add 100 of the smaller one (1.32 each) if there was enough interest for most of that amount. https://www.lilpackaging.com.au/buy-packaging/flatpack/flp-flatpack-aus/ Pictures:
  4. ISO: bulk vinyl shipping boxes

    Thanks for that. In the end I found some on eBay that should do the trick: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/10-Cardboard-Brown-Packaging-Carton-Mailing-Boxes-STRONG-350x350x350mm-SYDNEY/262880452220?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
  5. Item: 32 boxed LP opera sets + 3 x other box sets Location: Newport 2106 Price: $50 Item Condition: Generally look pretty decent for age, but untested/ungraded Reason for selling: Massive space reduction required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: I haven't played these and can't right now (thanks Rega). So I think the offering price is a little silly (low I mean) but for anyone within driving distance wanting to try new stuff out (and who likes opera), this lot should keep you busy for a while. Pickup only, too much/heavy to ship. (With that said, if you know of a good source for boxes say 34x34x15 please do LMK. If no local takers I will split into itemized lots for shipping, assuming I can find a source for a suitable box/packaging.) Pickup Tues or Weds this week only. Pictures: Will take tomorrow in daylight. Sorry, forgot to do it earlier today.
  6. It means they're designed and made in China (proudly).
  7. Hi, would anyone have a source for suitable boxes for shipping at least a dozen records? I thought it would be simple but I'm not finding anything. For singles and up to 6 I did find these: https://www.lilpackaging.com.au/buy-packaging/flatpack/flp-flatpack-aus/ https://www.lilpackaging.com.au/buy-packaging/book-wraps-packaging-book-mailers/clp-bukwrap/ Thanks for any pointers
  8. Hi Clinton, the clear and black ones that come with it are the same size. My guess is that the hooks in the Groovy kit are the same, I've never heard of there being different sizes...? There are also two pairs of smaller "earlocks" (two different sizes) that come with it, perhaps that is the non-large hook implied by the Groovy product listing.
  9. *** SOLD *** These items were purchased for a measurement project, however I couldn't resist using/listening to them as well. Asking prices are I believe better than good. See below for specifics. Please note that prices are FIRM. Please don't send me a PM asking for a different price... Please ask questions in this thread. Please don't post "I will take them" if you have are not sure whether you actually want to buy them or not..... If you are interested in taking the item at asking price then please send a PM. If it is not marked "pending" or "sold" then please send me a PM anyway.... if you are not the first with a genuine request to buy, I will just let you know, that's the worst that can happen. (Do not be put off by "PM sent" posts...) I send a tracking number when I ship. I will provide a refund if there's a genuine issue with anything I sell, within reason considering I am a private seller, so please check the item thoroughly when you receive it and get back to me preferably within a week if there is any problem. 3% net (i.e. less postage) of items sold at asking price and paid by bank transfer will go to stereonet after you confirm receipt of item in good/expected condition. I would certainly appreciate a positive feedback if the item is as stated/expected when received. If you got this far, thank you, read on Item: Shure SE215 SOLD Location: Newport NSW 2106 Price: 75 shipped (RRP 149) Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: No longer needed. Payment Method: Bank transfer Only Extra Info: Purchased new from minidisc.com.au in May/June timeframe. Used on a looong international flight. I will be discarding the small and medium foam stock eartips, but am including 2 unused pairs each of Comply small and medium "comfort" tips instead. The stock rubber tips may have been used but I will do my best to clean with peroxide before shipping. Pictures: Item: Audeze iSine 10 SOLD Location: Newport NSW 2106 Price: 250 shipped (RRP 599) Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: No longer needed. Also I am definitely not an IEM person... Payment Method: Bank transfer Only Extra Info: Purchased from an SNA member for measurement/testing, but also used lightly for myself. Everything in the stock package is included, except as noted below. Pretty nice sound. The Lightning cable works well but feels a little underpowered. With a dedicated amp and the simple cable and some EQ they are very good. If you are a Roon user, there is now a preset for the iSine's in the DSP settings. (Pretty cool actually, I use the DSP with my LCD-X/Cs) The stock small and medium eartips have been used but I will clean with peroxide before shipping. Two unused pairs of "small" Comply 600 Comfort tips are included. One of the black "ear hooks" is broken. This happened just yesterday when I removed it to check them over. There is still the clear earhooks and the other little in-ear type hooks. However I have therefore reduced the asking price by $30 from what I was going to ask so you can buy the "Groovy Kit" from A2A for $29 AUD, which includes another pair of earhooks as well as more tips. Some people have trouble getting these to fit. To be honest, I'd be one of those. While I am not a regular IEM user, my impression is that "small" for these is more like "medium" for other IEMs. Pictures: Please note: the photos show two Comply foam containers. In reality there is only one, with two pairs of 600 Comfort tips.

    While this a slightly old thead, I was a bit sad to get the emaill from the liquidator.
  15. How to measure D for stacked W frame dipole woofers

    D is the distance between the two wavefronts of opposite polarity (i.e. from front and rear of the driver). While simple in theory (http://www.linkwitzlab.com/models.htm#A) it becomes less so when using real drivers and baffles to make distance. Essentially, D controls where cancellation starts. Too much cancellation gives too little output. So larger is better, except that with folded baffles there will be resonance that goes lower in frequency as you try to increase the effective value of D. In your drawing on the left you have created a short D from left to right (unless I don't understand the drawing). It might be better to start conceptually with a W frame stood on its side and then "curve it" without introducing that short circuit.
