  1. Having heard both the K812 and K872, I can say that they shouldn't be assumed as interchangeable. 872s are heavier on bass and don't have the sparkle that make the 812s brilliant. Also, AKG support these days is horrendous/non-existent. Harmon and now Samsung have destroyed the company. I loved my K550s and always wanted to upgrade to a closed 812 type, but I had to give up on that dream. I rock T5p Gen 2s and love them to bits. Awesome soundstage and you can hear everything. They're also crazy easy to drive, so needing to upgrade/replace DAP/DACs is kept to a minimum.
  2. Hello and welcome. You might want to try posting in here. https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/forum/41-wanted-to-buy/
  3. This is a cracking little unit. I run some Beyerdynamics off this and think it is an absolute ripper for the money. Perfect for the desk at work (or home). Even for my 32ohm headphones, it provides a really clean sound that allows me to hear the texture on a snare drum in a song (Blood Brother by Leif Vollebeck) that I can't hear on any other set up.
  4. Yep. Saw that one. It's definitely an option, but there were a few bigger hitters (M6, RGi120ENR, B100 SST) for the same price a few months ago, which would allow me to upgrade both my main and secondary system, @soundfan Any other suggestions as to brands/models that hit the brief?
  5. Item: Bryston B60R / B100SST or Musical Fidelity M6/M5/M3 Price Range: $750-2000 Item Condition: Used Extra Info: Looking for a good value integrated to either match to B&W CM8s and trickle down my existing amp to a new set of bookshelf speakers. Alternatively, take something with a little less power to drive the bookshelf speakers. Price will depend on age/warranty/condition/model etc.
  6. https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/doncaster-east/stereo-systems/denon-pma-2500ne-integrated-amplifier/1253603572 Out of my price range (certainly looking for a new integrated amp), but looks like a pretty good deal for this current Denon.
  7. This thread is a cracker. Most of you have better gear in storage that I have on my main system. Some of the vintage gear is very cool. I'll go back to lurking in the shadows again 😆
  8. Seems a little misleading. Is this a common trend with these manufacturers now? At that price, it probably is still reasonable value for someone who needs something budget and doesn't want second hand. But still, a little disappointing for them to be advertising that way.
  9. https://www.amazon.com.au/DENON-PMA720AE-Stereo-Amplifier-PMA-720AE/dp/B007Y3OBIS/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=denon&qid=1592260559&sr=8-2 WhatHiFi has it with a 4 star rating. Seems like a good deal for someone building their first stereo or a budget system. Not sure how new Denon 2Ch stacks up compared to the older stuff (Currently using a PMA-2000r)
  10. Bugger. Croydon NSW and not Croydon VIC. I would be seriously looking at these if they were VIC.
  11. You guys are legends @Whites @lemarquis. I emailed him and he emailed right back. You are 100% correct, could be terminal and no drivers have been made for quite a few years now. One day I'll get myself some of his towers (although I do worry about what happens with service as the master craftsman ages), and I thought this might be a sneaky way to get something on the cheap as taster for the next few years. I'll just have to keep saving and waiting. What are you guys listening to during these times of social distancing?
  12. I've sent a message to the seller about shipping. Any opinions on the Osborn? How is Greg (?) in terms of repairs and pricing? These are clearly the old version. Any thoughts on how old they might be?
  13. My partner wants a cat. I've often wondered about this. Do cats claw speaker dust covers? I assume they don't climb on speakers and other equipment.
  14. Damn. Would have loved that Arcam. Never heard one, but I reckon it would have been fun.
  15. Has anyone here tried to play online multiplayer games on the Switch (e.g. Rocket League, Smash Brothers, Overwatch)? What do you think? What games do you play? Do you just play single player or get online with it?
