  1. Thanks @colinm1 and @rmpfyf for the recommendations, I will look into these, never heard of either.
  2. Hi everyone, I would like to know if any of you have used any powerboards that do not have any conditioning that you really liked and sounded good and did not introduce any noise. I am not keen on power conditioners as I have used one and they stifled the dynamics in my system. Also not keen to spend more on conditioners that do not stifle dynamics. I understand that conditioners like PS Audio power plant 10 are great but they are too costly for me. I am currently using the Consonance powerboard with no conditioning and I am quite impressed with the lack of any noise/hiss/hum compared with Bunnings powerboards but I find it makes my system sound a bit more bright/treblely. My CD player, Streamer/Dac, tube phono, and tube preamp are plugged into the Consonance power board, my power amp is plugged directly into the wall. No more power outlets left on the wall and I cannot put in another power outlet or run another line. Any recommendations would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!
  3. Anyone been to Neighbourhood Wine in Fitzroy North? Not exactly a hifi bar like in Japan, but they have a really nice system at the bar. It has a few luxman components, they only play vinyl, and the speakers have 3 tweeters on a horizontal row. It seems to give the impression of the middle of the speakers sweet spot anywhere facing the bar. Food is pretty good there, but I think I keep going back for the hifi system.
  4. Hi @Soul Superfly, can you please let me know the dimensions of the sub boxes. Thanks.
  5. Item: Audeze EL-8 Titanium Close Back Full Size Planar Headphones Location: Footscray, Melbourne Price: $390 Item Condition: EXCELLENT! Used less than 5 times including once just before writing this ad up. Reason for selling: Just not into headphones. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Can post at buyers cost, I still have the box and shipping carton. Bought from @Spider27 as a brand new, refurbished headphone. Tried it 2 or 3 times and could not get into the headphone thing and it went into the cupboard. Pictures: Sorry about the pics, cannot seem to rotate them.
  6. I'm in. Good work Jon! Maybe if this was in the general discussion area more people might see it?

  8. Thanks for the tip, was a bit worried about that.
  9. Will try that, it's a bit of a PITA with my speakers, they're 80kg each.

  13. A bit of an update everyone, I have combined a bit of the advice from a few of you and have got positive results! Firstly, I have moved the left speaker to the right so my speakers are not set up symmetrical to the room. The second thing I have done is increase toe in to get the cross point straight out from the tweeters to cross in front of me. The last thing is I have got the speaker to point down quite substantially by using an extremely thick spike shoe on the back with Bunnings anti vibration squares under that and really thin spike shoes on the front. There is now an acceptable amount of bass at my listening position, but there is still more bass when I stand up haha. Not sure if the treble is more emphasised with the toe in or I have lost a bit of midrange but the sound is also a bit harsher or less warm. Will keep tweaking and see how it goes!
