  1. Peter-F - Kudos to you and your speaker dude for this restoration. I know these are wonderful speakers - had some for 20 years. However. I was NOT so lucky as you. I put them in (fully working in good overall condition) to have the crumbling dust-caps in the bass drivers cleaned out and refirbed. Prior to driving them in 100kms to the dude in Sydney (name withheld, but a big business) we talked on email. Me: "Are you sure you know what you are doing?" Response: "No problems - done loads of these 104's before." Quoted me $400 labor, maybe $20 for parts So lugg
  2. "The combo give me a very clean sound with a kind of 3D sound I was looking for. Still something is missing. Not sure what it is but......." Now THIS is a good place to start! While many will suggest you try this, or that upgrade - this advice is probably potential solutions trying to solve a problem that's not defined. I would suggest the place to start is to try to define WHY you feel your system is somehow "deficient". What exactly do you think is missing?? Unless you can define this, then you won't know what problem you are trying to solve - so your attempts at a sol
  3. So, so many. True greats: Cassandra Wilson @ the Sydney Opera House - a truly magnificent artist with a spellbindingly good band. Dead Can Dance @ SOH - and you can even hear the results....and maybe me cheering. Magnificent sound. Loud as, but crystal clear. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_Concert_(Dead_Can_Dance_album) Tina Harrod one evening about 10 years back at Venus 505 in Surrey Hills. Simple as. Elegant as. Backing band (Zwartz and others) perfectly in synch, and Tina pouring her heart out singing off her "Temporary People" album. Police suppor
  4. Further information: NOW REDUCED BY $150! A pair of Piano Black NHT “Classic 4” speakers in essentially flawless condition. I purchased these around a year ago from the original purchaser…and boy did he look after these babies well! We probably all know just how easy it is to damage / scratch piano black……but these are in REALLY good condition. I’ve been over them pretty carefully, and there is no damage that I can see, and even no “polishing scuffs”. The drivers are all in A1 condition, the covers are also in flawless condition, and they come with their original

  7. "Can I use it as a DAC?". Err......I'd be fairly sure, YES - given your pics have both unbalanced (RCA) and balanced outputs marked "Pre / Line out". That would indicate its a line-out DAC, OR a Dac with preamp. Then again....maybe I misunderstood your original Q.
  8. Well...time to get started!! 10 years is long enough to wait. Put an ad for a 3C in the SNA WTB column. Or.....start with this 2C, now! https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/NHT-Classic-Two-C-Centre-speaker/154070453923?hash=item23df508ea3:g:TtMAAOSwtkFfT0es&frcectupt=true

  10. I am absolutely FLABBERGASTED that these have not sold previously. Seriously good speakers for a silly low price....and 3 to boot! Prefect L/C/R for someone with some sense! And in excellent shape as well. I shake my head.....
  11. I know I'm a bit late to the party, and did NOT read the 100+ other messages...but a thought that might help you build a better and more flexible system. Not sure if you are using a front-end source like a streaming service - Spotify or Tidal. But if you CAN.....then here's a tip. I recently tried a (free?) subscription to roon. There are some amazing features inside roon...such as a DSP engine. Say your roon receiving device is a Yamaha amp....... you can click on the DSP button on that device and see a flat frequency graph - using you PC laptop of large tablet a
  12. I stumbled across this recently. Stuart & Sons are Aussie piano makers who recently created a one-off revolutionary 9-octave, 108 key concert grand - now named the Big Beleura - after the stately house in Victoria where it now resides. For the technically minded, this piano plays from C0 (16Hz) to B8 (7902Hz)!!! You may not actually be able to hear its high and low notes! Recently a concert of works by Aussie Composer Alan Griffiths was recorded on this beast. Interestingly it employed special microphones developed by Sony just for this piano! A few days ba
  13. I think these are hugely UNDER-rated. Amazing sound (Esp. for the $$$) if you put them on the end of a good system. Well built too. GLWS
