    Hi Clay, this last recommendation - not to leave devices switched on permanently - is this just for your PS or for all of your products, especially the DAC? You had recommended previously to leave the Klein on 24/7. I have the Klein II and find that it sounds better after being on for a while. Andrew

    Axis ls38?

    I'm very familiar with the LS38 and they improve enormously when spiked. If standing them on a wooden floor, place the spiked speakers on a solid base plate, such as sandstone or concrete. You can put rubber feet under the base plate to avoid scratching the floor.

    ACT + Wyndham Audio GTG - 2 December 2017

    Yes, i am interested - most days I'm available.
  8. I have owned both Harbeth and Spendor speakers before and with respect to tone, they are both excellent and you would enjoy either. I have also owned The Sonus Faber Auditor M which are also great tonally and image well, but just don't have the dynamics to be a great all rounder. By far the best stand mount speaker that has been through my home (and is still here) is the Lenehan ML2 Ref. I bought them a couple of years ago expecting to use them in a 2.1 system but the bass in them is so satisfying, that I am still running them 2.0. Dynamics are not in the floor stander class but for the music that I listen to, it's sufficient and bass goes down to a very pleasing 30Hz (measured) in-room. Their imaging (one of my most important criteria) is outstanding and these are a spectacularly good all-rounder. I don't yearn for anything more in the speaker department although bass heads might want to add a sub. The ML2s are in the same sort of price bracket as the Olympica and in my view deserve to be on any serious shopping list for bookshelf speakers. When set up properly they are just stunning!

    SOLD: FS: Audio Principe Interconnects

    @scumbagThanks for the heads up.
  13. Item: Audio Principe single ended attenuated interconnects 70cm Location: Canberra Price: $75 plus postageItem Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Change of system config. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, bank transferExtra Info: My previous system had an incompatibility where the output voltage from the DAC was too high for the preamp and did not allow good volume control. These interconnects solved the problem beautifully and allowed me to turn the volume control higher to where most volume pots sound better than in the first bit of travel. Attenuation is -9db using fixed in-line, very high quality resistors. Pictures:
  14. Item: Audio Principe balanced interconnects 60cm Location: Canberra Price: $65 plus postage Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Change of system config. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, bank transfer Extra Info: Company blurb reads: Audio Principe XLR Balanced interconnects are constructed using cable with four conductors in a star-quad configuration which provides excellent noise rejection and signal integrity. The internal wire is made in the USA, and all solder joints use 2% silver solder. Dielectric is PTFE Teflon, insulating 4x silver-plated Oxygen Free Copper stranded conductors, and a high-coverage silver plated OFC braided shield. The shield is connected to earth at the female connector, and via a filter capacitor and resistor at the male connector for excellent RF and EMI noise reduction. This ensures the reduction of potential ground loops, as the earth is essentially lifted. NOTE: the filter circuit connects only the shield to ground, and is not part of the signal path. These design features ensure an extra low noise floor and crystal clear sound reproduction. Connectors are latest Neutrik 3-pin XLR’s, with gold-plated contacts. The cables are protected with a black Techflex covering with a red trace. Pictures:
  15. Item: Audio Principe single ended interconnects 6.0 metres Location: Canberra Price: $240 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Change of room config. Now require different lengths. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, bank transfer Extra Info: These were custom made for me by Peter Graves to connect my preamp to power amp when they were spread apart. Made from American cable, they are silver coated and covered with teflon dielectric. I could hear no difference between this 6 metre pair and another 1 metre pair. They present as new. Pictures:
