  1. I'd like: Kimber USB Ag (silver) 0.5 m. Type A and type B connector PM on its way
  2. Hi @gibbo9000. I just found this thread - interesting read. My brother was another person who got drawn into Suryia's financial death spiral. Various components came in and out of his house in lieu of payment. I think the quality declined from top notch Audio Note, and Forsell, to more dubious at the end. TASS was in there too. @blybo it looks like your Tre drivers are the same as in the manual linked at the start of this post, but different drivers in the ones posted by @Islandaudio
  3. Hi I'd like x-ray spex and the who Tommy please. Prob more as well. I
  4. Item: Perigee FK1 Location: Fitzroy North Melbourne Price: 2,900 $2,750 $2,500 Item Condition: sound and speakers are excellent, cabinets in good condition Reason for selling: partner not keen on black speakers (reverting to proacs) Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: It's time to move these on, so further price drop. Its a lot of speaker for the asking price IMO. Here's the previous listing from when I bought them. They are in identical condition now: As Wikeeboy said: These are ribbon hybrid speakers made by Graz of Apogee Acoustic fame in very limited numbers. They have a 6" proprietary ribbon tweeter, along with twin 6.5" drivers. They combine the speed, resolution and transparency of ribbons, whilst providing fast, solid and low reaching bass (28hz). They are 4ohm with 92db sensitivity. These were my dream speakers and are what got me into audio. Most were sold overseas with only a small amount staying in the AUS market. I searched high and low for mine, finally finding a pair from an old Perigee dealer in NSW. I have owned them for approx 6-7 years which is the longest by far i've held on to anything audio related! I've had many speakers come and go over the years but none have lasted like these. Most recently i had some $30k speakers in house and although they were more coherent from top to bottom, the Perigee's just smashed them in the mid/highs. The other speakers sounded great till you put them side by side with the peri's, after that they sounded like there was a cloth over the tweeters. The Peri's are the fastest, most transparent, open and dynamic speakers i've owned. Around a year ago, Graz brought out an update to these which he calls Perigee FK1 Advanced. By all accounts it takes these to another level. I mention this to show that they are still supported by Graz and can continue to be improved upon. The upgrade brings new ribbons, internal wiring and an external off the chart crossover (like you see Mike Lenehan doing). The speakers have cavities in the base which can be filled - accessed by a solid hex screw (driver supplied). I used kiln dried sand mixed with lead shot, i'll provide that with the speakers. The speaker terminals are high quality bi-wire types (one is a little loose, but not affecting the connection) . The speakers have grills to protect the drivers although i prefer them off (comes with spare grill too in case you ever need it). The speakers sit on bases called 'perisers' which lift them up a little higher and provide a wider base for stability. Both the speakers and the perisers have provisions to screw in spikes. These were originally voiced with Musical Fidelity Nuvista 3D and M3 components, and sounded awesome when i had them running that way. They loved the romantic nature of the nuvista's, whilst benefiting from the current delivery. Of recent times i have been using Devialet, and this specific pair of Peri's were the ones Devialet used to analyse for the SAM profile you can download/enable for them. It lowers the output to 21hz which seriously shakes the house foundations! I thought i would keep these forever, but the fact is with a small family space is at a premium and i just don't have the room to store them. I need to make way for some incoming beasts which are easily over 10 times the price of these (which speaks volumes about the quality of these for the money). I'm not kidding when i say considering letting go of these is like breaking up with my childhood sweetheart. With these you can have your cake and eat it too, ribbon quality mids and highs in a reasonably slim enclosure with thunderous bottom end. I have the original double-sided boxes with excellent padding so can ship interstate if required. I don't think it would economical to ship the sand and lead shot . There is more info on the Apogee Acoustics website (where Graz sells US$100,000 ribbon speakers), here: http://www.apogeeacoustics.com/perigee.html I also have the manual and a review that I can email to you if interested Pictures:
  5. I've had a little interest, and now throwing out some incentive with a price drop to $2,750.
  6. I'll take the other set if still available

  8. Item: Wyred 4 Sound SX1000 monoblocs Location: Northcote, Melbourne Price: $1,400 Item Condition: 8/10 (sonically perfect, a couple of fine lines on the aluminium) Reason for selling: trying something else (2 x 30kg Exposure XVI behemoths) Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: These are the amps that really put W4S on the map. They were W4S’ flagship amp and are a significant step up from the SX500 monos. Many favourable reviews on the www and positive comments on SNA. The Absolute Sound Editors’ Choice award for six years in a row. Six Moons said: "D class strikes gold in overall smoothness, neutral tonal balance, low noise and resolution of low-level information. The SX-1000 monos have all that in spades - plus excellent dynamics, transient response and the ability to play loud without compression. Considering what you get for the price, these amps are a terrific value and for me, epitomize what our Realsization Award is about. Definitely one of the most impressive audio bargains around." There has been a recent update to the SX1000R (at RRP $5,598 a pair). W4S are offering US$1,500 trade-in per pair of SX1000 for anyone trading up to the new model. That’s more than I’m asking for in AUS$. See: https://wyred4sound.com/products/power-amps/mono/sx-1000r There are a couple of fine lines on the casework. These look worse in the photos that in the flesh. I have the original boxes and can post. Pictures:
  9. I have a meridian 206 CDP, and it also exhibits a longer than usual pause when fast forwarding or going back tracks. I agree its simply a Meridian trait, and not likely anything amiss with your player.
