  1. Sorry but the system was packed up and shipped to New Zealand a few weeks ago. We're in the process of moving back home. Bigger market place this side of the ditch, more options.....
  2. Yes its the KT120. Single input so its really a power amp with a remote control volume. Sorry can't give any more pictures at this stage as I'm away at work and its boxed up. Will be trade only, if I can't find the right trade I'll keep using this one.
  3. Item: Weston Topaz Location: Perth Price: $2000 Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: Too much power Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I'm looking to swap / trade my Weston Topaz amp for a 45 or 2A3 amp for my horns. No one really needs me to waffle on about how good these are! The Topaz is way over powered for the horns and I'd love to try one of the other lower power amps. The Topaz is in mint condition apart from one of the speaker binding post has a cracked plastic nut. This one has a single input with remote volume. Also have a few extra tubes to throw in. Interested to here from anyone looking to go up in power so I can go lower..... Pictures:
  4. I just got a 65" LG for just over $2k and it's beautiful, better picture than the Samsung......
  5. Not enough room on the switch board for too many more circuits. You're saying 32a circuit?
  6. Hi guys, just getting the sparky in to run a dedicated circuit for my new listening room.... He says all new circuits must have an RCD, do these add any noise or any other issues? Cheers
  7. Might just pull the fuses on one channel then. Thanks
  8. Hi guys, I've got a Tilbrook 6000 amp sitting around and thought I'd use it for a sub. This is 240w per channel so one channel would enough but the other channel would be doing nothing, might as well put it to work! Can I bridge this amp? If so how..... Thanks
  9. Thanks guys, starting to build a better picture of how to finish my room. I'll keep reading asking questions...... I still have to build the ceiling so will probably do that the same as the walls, double soundcheck with green glue. Do dogs so might go with carpet, was thinking about laminate floor as this will become a family / pool room once my ears decay more and I loose interest in hifi..... But I think I'll have to sort out one key issue first, thats getting away from a square room.... Cheers Dave
  10. This is a ground floor room, not to worried about sound escaping the room, more worried about sound entering my space..... In the country but next to a busy main rd.
  11. Hi guys, still working on the setup for my new listening room and have a question around the flooring. Have read somewhere that floating hardwood or composite flooring is a good option as it allows some absorption due to the flexible underlay. Is this correct? Surely a few rugs would still be required to help with HF reflections....
  12. Its V1.b which has the extra resistor. "The original PCB was found to be need an extra resistor added to get the bias set to a range where the amp will make it’s full designed power and lowest distortion." Don't really need the disclaimer as the build is all low voltage... Its run by a laptop PS so only see 19v.
  13. 100% correct, I was always a believer in a minimalistic signal chain - was!!!! Found a big improvement when I put my Pass designed buffer between the DAC and amp. It's seems the DAC really likes the correct impedance loading. Understandable really.... So must have 's, good pre or buffer stage like the Pass or Burson if you want the best from this DAC.
