  1. I think these things are the fastest selling items on Stereonet. Gotta be quick.
  2. So tempted to open one now (or maybe one of my Lamellas 😃).
  3. I found with the original D7 depended on the Amp.
  4. Further information: Great powered speakers. I set up a home office during Covid but I work in tech support and am always on the phone so these don't get turned on. Originally a $2k speaker but I think you can get them on runout sale for $1500 so I have priced these to sell. Only 4 months old. https://www.dynaudio.com/discontinued-models/excite/x14a https://www.audiostream.com/content/dynaudio-excite-x14a-0 Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.

  6. Hi Murray. Yes I played with Tidal and Roon over the last couple of months but I find Spotify easiest to use and if I want to listen to HD tracks I use my Sony connected via USB to the Dynaudio Connect. Spotify is fine for all but the most attentive listening and I am enjoying finding new music. So easy with active speakers. I don't like too much bass so I tend to avoid it. The 600 XDs have more bass than my previous speakers and I find they play what is there and play it well. They are keepers for me. I think the thing with these speakers is they just play so accurately, without embellishment anywhere, that it can sound boring. Takes a bit of getting used to after the brightness of my Spendors. Now that I am used to it I find them a great lifestyle choice and a great bargain. I did the firmware upgrade myself. Very easy. Enjoy.
  7. The stands look great! I did exactly the same thing and love my 600 XDs but it is important to note that these speakers will fill a good size room and I think will still be under (the transferable) warranty.
  8. I have always had a soft spot for Champagne - my wallet less so. I took a chance on the lucky dip that is Vinomofo and can safely say this is easily the best Champagne I have had - and by a long way. I have always felt Grower Champagnes are where the value is (and where I would prefer to spend my money). Fine mousse, developed but fresh nose and palate. Bubbles dissipate quickly but it still tastes beautiful. Great anniversary wine - if I could only stop drinking it - or I will be awake at 2 and regretting it
  9. Looks to be in beautiful condition. If I had not gone active this would have made a great system with the Harbeths or Dynaudio Special 40s currently in the classifieds!
  10. Never had a bad wine from Fraser.
  11. Definitely take advantage of the offer. The Hegel will surprise you. I had the H160 and it was brilliant (and the streaming option made it very user friendly). I have had MF amps in the past and the Hegel was better then my MFs. It was on par (but with different traits) with the Luxman I had. The Luxman worked better with my Spendor speakers (coaxed a bit more out of them whereas the Hegel really kept them under a bit too much control). The Spendors were not base hounds so the Luxman just worked better. I think Hydrology went from Luxman to Hegel so with his speakers it may have been the match was different.
  12. Yep going active has been great - for me and the family. Just start playing music from the phone (Spotify, Tidal, Roon, local network) and the speakers turn themselves on and beautiful music springs forth. Easy. Spent so much time agonising over equipment and how to make it easy for the family over the years. Now I don't even have to think about it - can spend more time discovering new music.
  13. @Luc If he likes YV Pinot then this is probably the best value, consistently good pinot in Aus. https://www.hoddlescreekestate.com.au
  14. I would have fully understood the law of diminishing returns (applies equally to my wine collection). And I would have listened with my own ears, not what I thought I should be hearing (according to the reviewers and others with "golden ears").
  15. Item: Bluesound Node 2i Price Range: $600 seems to be the current going price Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible. (You can now delete this text).
  16. Think I will stick with my Series 7 R for a while longer then
  17. In case anyone is sitting on the fence, I have had an offer from an Ebay buyer but would rather sell them here. Have dropped the price to match the Ebay offer (less commission) for 48 hours.
