  1. Anthony Holton has an intro price for a 100watt power amp for under $1800 which should bring out the best in any high quality speakers. I just finished a comparable 150 watt DIY Holton amp which cost about the same to build and am enjoying it immensely. There is something special about the Holtons I have heard. They aren't spectacular, they just do everything that makes music sound the way it should, effortlessly. Holtons are 'keepers, so you will be unlikely to find a used one, but at the into price they are a bargain. https://holtonprecisionaudio.com/coll
  2. Further information: My LSX speakers have been sitting on a bookcase since I purchased them in October 2019 from Addicted to Audio to use while I built some DIY ESLs. I estimate they have only been used for 50 hours and would suit a new buyer. Firmware was updated today. Nudge nudge, wink wink. The wide picture is for size comparison and other gear isn't included. The reputation of these speakers is well known and I just had another listen and they are so entertaining they made me chuckle again. They really do sound much larger than they are and the musicality of
  3. I ran my LS50's (not meta) with great results powered by a Hypex Class-D NC122-mp with balanced inputs. They used a passive LDR Preamp with RCA/Balanced interconnects and had heaps of grunt and never struggled in a medium sized room. The Hypex neutrality and lack of harshness really suited the LS50's and let their unique character take centre stage and was much appreciated by everyone 🙂 Cheers, Rob
  4. Hi jay. The LSX are certainly great speakers but they need a new home where their magical properties can be fully enjoyed. We are lucky enough to have a tiled house that acts like a personal concert hall, so we get quality sound everywhere, whether it's wanted or not, courtesy of my new Holton Aussie amp.
  5. Parcel Post to Sydney is a bit over $35 for 8kg. Express is over $72. If you were happy to pay half freight cost. Say $15 postage, I could get them off to you. Cheers, Rob
  6. Hi Marco. I'll just check freight options for you. Cheers, Rob

  8. Hi Ian. I just noticed your post. The Hypex and Holton used the same Aurealis interconnects. I used them with the Hypex about six months before I moved to my Holton. Cheers, Rob
  9. Sorry about that. Of course it's a socket head ...the box says so. I guess I'm the cup head around here! Cheers, Rob
  10. Could coupling/uncoupling a better and adjustable solution to speaker stand bass control? Thanks to alternative isolation methods being posted by members I had a rethink on using Bluetak or a washer. The effectiveness of Bluetak was changing again over time, even with my washer fix, so back to the drawing board. Stainless steel M4 Sockethead bolts have now been screwed into the top plate corners. The base of the bolt heads sit 5mm above the top plate. A small pea sized blob of hot glue was stuck to the bolt head leaving a rounded mound for the speaker to sit
  11. Thanks Mick. I'll have to check it out. You can never try too many experiments! Cheers, Rob
  12. They look interesting. Do they have the same viscosity as Bluetak that prevents the speakers from bouncing back and forth or sideways or can the speakers still wobble slightly? Cheers, Rob
  13. My pensioner cunning and more spare time has taught me how to avoid buying potentially costly items by using my collection of workshop treasures that are waiting for a project. After hunting around some second hand shops I came home with a stack of LP’s that needed a good clean but I didn’t have a cleaning machine or any money left. What if I could make something that could do the job from junk that was lying around? I searched my inventory and found: A piece of veneered chipboard Some plastic pipe and flexible tube One dead hard drive An
  14. IF the washer doesn't have anything to do with the sound quality AND only holds a smaller amount of Bluetak so it doesn't spread as much THEN I have found a way to stop Bluetak getting thinner over time which would reduce it's reason for being used ELSE I have just found a great way to save money on Bluetak ENDIF 😉
