  1. I used to have this combination and it provided a sound quality with a huge soundstage, excellent transparency, air and bass authority among other attributes. Excellent value for money. GLWTS.

    Welcome Geoff!! I have found SNA to be a great resource for learning, both as a passive observer / reader and interactively. You have come to the right place!
  3. Great speakers. I used to have these and they were great. Absolute bargain basement price. GLWTS
  4. Thanks. An example of what I was thinking of is listening to music such as Dire Straits with a strong emphasis on closely miked guitar. A highly resolving system will provide considerable detail in the guitar that might be harder on the ears that a more smeared or less detailed sound. Probably less likely to be an issue in a darker system.
  5. And good music with a crap recording .... which seems to cause fatigue due to poor, and in some cases ‘hot’ tonal balance, if not also other reasons.. And what about fatigue due to high levels of detail. What is the reason this can cause fatigue?
  6. Do Ethernet cables make a difference to the sound like USB? Yep absolutely, in my system. Of what I have tried, the choice of ethernet cable into my streamer has similar effect to choice of USB and more effect than power cable.
  7. I used to have a pair of these and they really are very nice sounding speakers and a bargain at this price. GLWTS.
  8. I have two and don’t seem to have this issue. Sounds like something is not quite right in your set up. Perhaps the Thor is more sensitive to whatever is going on than your previous board. The chance of all 4 being dodgy would have to be pretty low.
  9. Welcome Craig. Great to see another person join with Osborn Mk IV’s with bass units. I have same and have had them 10 yrs odd. A great speaker, hey. Hopefully you are just selling that surround/rear channel gear and not the MkIV’s! cheers
  10. Yes, a great combination indeed. The Gold Tune Kraftwerk improves the sound substantially over standard supply. Plenty written about this DAC and psu in the Gieseler forums. GLWTS.
  11. Location: Kew East, Vic Price: $260 includes regular postage to anywhere in Australia. Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: No longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Friends or EFT Extra Info: For sale are these Grover Huffman top of the line Empress speaker cables. This is a six foot pair in perfect working order. The speaker cables are terminated with banana plugs both ends. Grover Huffman cables are rarely available on the used market as most people hang onto them. These cables offer superb sound and are regarded as great value for money at the new price.

  12. I have three Sonos systems in living and dining rooms, or at least 3* ZP120 plus other branded speakers and subbies, and a higher end system in lounge room. The Sonus system is great for enjoying music when just hanging out around the house. What it doesn’t provide is a) satisfactory audiophile listening experiences sitting between the speakers, and b) a hobby. But no regrets from running both set ups 😃
  13. @rantan, that’s interesting thanks. Can you pls clarify if you had all or some of your hifi components plugged into these boards as part of this test. If the latter, which components were involved in test?
