  2. I actually have a pair of Tannoy ST-300 super tweeters that I am using with my speakers. Used to pair it with the Focal Alto Utopia BE and now using it with the Magico S3. Both of those speakers' tweeters extend well beyond 20KHz. Initially I did a lot of A/B comparisons and was hard to pin point if the super tweeters make any substantial improvements to the sound. Was very close to selling them to recoup some money back, however thinking that I already paid for it, what the heck I'll use it for a month and sell it later on. After 1 month, I removed it from my system and packed it up to get ready for selling. Suddenly listening to my system, without the supertweeter I found it lacked depth and air that I was used to and the overall sound was not as enjoyable as before with the ST-300 in the chain. So back it goes, and everything just sounded "right" again. Not sure the scientific reasons behind it, but I do prefer listening to my system with the supertweeters.

  6. Item: MSB Technology S200 Platinum power amplifier (200W x 2 - Class A) Location: Adelaide Price: $6000 (RRP I think was around $15,000 USD) ($100 shipping Australia wide). Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Happy to organise time inspection and audition demo for potential buyer. Review for MSB S201 which is pretty much identical to the S200 (review in Chinese). http://www.msbtech.com/reviews/Audio-Art-S201-Review.pdf https://hifiwigwam.com/forum/topic/52607-msb-s200-amplifier/ Overview The MSB S200 stereo amplifier is built along the same design approach as the M200 monoblocks. The M200 monoblocks have been well established as the reference amplifier to beat, but they are big and expensive. MSB has taken what they have learned in the monoblock and with some very clever design and packing, fit it into our very successful DAC IV package. The system is now complete. The S200 amplifier makes use of the MSB Isorack Damping Feet which provides stackability and amazing mechanical isolation. The advanced thermal design provides close temperature control for optimum sound in all conditions. Some amplifiers hold an image together well with multiple instruments playing but were not capable of fully resolving the individual instruments or soundstage. Other amplifiers simply sound wonderful until more than two or three things started happening at once. The S200 amplifier was designed from the ground up to resolve the well organized and truthful harmonics of the best sources like MSB’s own DAC IV series. The dynamics get special attention with a quiet and robust power supply with deep current reserves. The S200 plays music beautifully and will hold a solid image for each instrument especially when the music gets complex and many instruments are going at once, without being harsh or edgy. Both the inputs and the outputs of this amplifier are completely balanced. The S200 also offers a single-ended input which is treated separately from the balanced input. A simple switch located near the input jacks allows you to switch the amplifier between Single-Ended operation, Balanced (high gain, + 6dB) and Balanced (low gain). High quality connectors are used for all inputs. The S200 has both a total power on/off and standby mode all selected by the front panel switches. When connected to other MSB products it can be powered on and off with the master power controls. The heart of the MSB S200 amplifier is the MSB-designed current mirrors, which allows amazing accuracy. With such great accuracy it can even operate with zero feedback, greatly improving the phase response. MSB’s use of zero feedback is a significant breakthrough and indicates the care taken in the design. The S200 also includes the use of toroidal transformers to keep noise levels low, as doe’s dense packaging.

  7. Item: HIFIMAN HE1000 V2 Headphones + pure silver balanced headphone cable Location: Adelaide Price: $2400 (RRP $4400 + RRP $600 for silver cable) ($40 Australia wide shipping) Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: The headphone comes with an additional 2m pure silver balanced cable (Lavricable Master Silver) which is a substantial upgrade in sound quality compared to the stock ones. The silver cable itself costed me around $600 landed in Australia. Also comes with original box and accessories. Decided to downgrade my headphone setup as I spend majority of the time listening to my HIFI instead. Lots of raving reviews online, it is my favourite headphones and I wouldn't be selling it if I actually still listen to my headphone setup. I previously had the HE1000 V1 and the V2 is a major upgrade in SQ and comfort. Pictures:
  8. I have great experience with SAM on my speaker. The difference was quite dramatic, especially in the bass. They are so much cleaner and well extended.
  9. I like my Focal with Devialet. MSB and Paraound amplifiers also sounded very sweet with the Focal.
  10. If you have spikes, go buy some herbies audio glider. It will do wonders in cleaning up sloppy bass. It is cheap as chips for the amount of goodness it brings to the system.
  11. Well give speakers isolation and decoupling a try. It made a big difference for me even with minimal treatment? Else you better off spending money on acoustic treatments as even a bookshelf speaker will still have issues.
