  1. Yes in my experience it makes a whole world of difference BUT not at your level of equipment. I have had numerous bi-wire and tri-wire speakers. Bi-wiring them is far superior than a single run with jumpers in the same speaker cable(it should). Cost of course is a consideration. Better off using the extra funds for better speaker cable in a single run with jumpers(for the same price as a double run), or as suggested, using funds for better speakers/amplification. This will yield a superior sound for the same price.
  2. Further information: Purchased from the UsedCable.com, part of The Cable Company USA(copies of correspondence and invoice/packing slip below). Version 1 of this model, 2.0 metres. A Furutech FI-AU3112(G) power plug was fitted. A Wattgate 350i(seems to be the Audio Grade Gold) 15amp IEC is original to the cable. Also included is the original Valhalla lockable wooden carry case. Quality and performance all the way with this cable. Included in the price is courier and insurance to your door. Photos:
  3. Further information: Current RRP $2,599. Bought this cable many moons ago via Stereonet and it has performed admiralty. The sound? I would say full bodied, more on the bottom end of the spectrum. An Au HPM plug was fitted by Australian Distributor. Has a Cardas 15amp IEC. Due to it's age the Cardas printing on the shrink wrap on both connectors is worn. Similarly, there is wear on some of the "CARDAS CLEAR BEYOND POWER" lettering on the "cardas blue" insulating outer sleeve. Shipping and insurance included in price
  4. Further information: RRP : $3,580 I conservatively rate the cable condition as better than just good. A couple of bananas have a slight bend due to the weight of the cables. Outer braid is very good . There is some pilling which is normal wear. Some scratches on one of the cable covers. The 72v DBS units are the ones that get a bit "sticky" with age. Bought these from Paul_B a few years ago for a great price so am passing on the benefit(original ad link below). Paul, at the time was working for The Audio Experts(Whatmough Audio) and purch
  5. Thanks, chaps. Oh! I thought it was +/- 10volts, my bad. So I'm within spec and no need to get Ausgrid out. I'm happy I'm using the PS Audio P15 to regulate the supply. Found this Australian Standard. AS60038 : 230V is the nominal voltage with a +10% to –6% variation at the point of supply. So Andy your are correct, +10% upper limit is 253v(230+23). Lower limit -6% is 216.2v(230-.13.8) This is a good illustration:- tps://electricalconnection.com.au/when-voltage-varies/ This ABC 2018 article provides interesting
  6. Andy, Rang Ausgrid yesterday. They can send a technician out to measure the incoming voltage at my board. Not convenient at the moment so later next month I will schedule a visit. This morning 247.6v, late yesterday 246.8v. As regulated voltage supply standard is "230v", this far exceeds the +/- 10 voltage variation.
  7. It's now 9:30am, voltage peaking at just over 250v. Maybe a call to the energy infrastructure company to ask why. I'm in Sydney suburbs.
  8. Just turned on my PS Audio P15. Voltage in at 6.30am was 249, fluctuating to 248. This seems rather higher than when I first installed a P10(now replaced with a P15) some years ago. I recently had the mains cable to the house replaced(original was almost 70 years old) so that may explain the increase. Maybe it's just a morning thing, I will monitor. I have attached a photo of the P15 screen showing voltage in. I also use an Isotek Super Titan which I find is more effective (sound wise) with my tube monos. Source components seem to like the P15.

  9. I had the L-100, fantastic amplifier. It "didn't fit" the new furniture so it was traded in(sob). Should have traded in the bride as she left three years later. Enjoy the L-100 and GLWTS.
  10. Weston Acoustics Tempest. New price from $2,750. I use one with KT150 tubes with a pair of Whatmough 303's, superb. Earle can take some time to build(mine took over 6 months) due to demand/he is a sole trader. Correspondence is not his strong suit but the amps are beautifully built and well worth the wait.

  12. Sorry the same thing that was posted previously. Amazon being almost half the price.
  13. This solution is available from Myer. $220.95, online only. Holds 1,116 cds. Shelves can be moved to accommodate DVD's and other objects d'art. https://www.myer.com.au/p/artiss-528-dvd-1116-cd-storage-shelf-media-rack-stand-cupboard-bok-unit-oak
  14. Further information: Current RRP $2,599. Bought this cable many moons ago via Stereonet and it has performed admiralty. The sound? I would say full bodied, more on the bottom end of the spectrum. It was originally supplied with nil packaging(sold in Oz with just an Cardas plastic bag I suspect). Au HPM plug with a Cardas 15AMP IEC are fitted. Due to it's age the Cardas printing on the shrink wrap on both connectors is worn. Similarly, there is wear on some of the "CARDAS CLEAR BEYOND POWER" lettering on the "cardas blue" insul
  15. Further information: Bought two of these from Bruce(VooDoo Owner) in 2017, invoice attached. They were his own demos and he retro fitted them with AU plugs(all plugs are Rhodium over superior conducting tellurium copper). At the time I purchased them the Air Dragon IV was the current version of this cable(current version is V). I asked what was the difference between the versions. He was very honest and said the colour, a new number, plus a few slight improvements. He said he increases the version number when he releases a new range. The specs for the
