  1. Always been intrigued that the audio hifi world appears to appeal in the majority to the male species- look at the amount of posts that concern the terms WAF , wife approval etc. My wife is a lifelong dancer but has no interest in my hifi -Why is this, why are so few ladies interested?? your thoughts??
  2. Thank you everyone for their interest the Fiio has been sold.
  3. Item: Fiio M9 Location:3204 Victoria Price: 190 Item Condition:Excellent Reason for selling: Cant get on with it. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Bank xfer Extra Info: I purchased this last week from another SN member, who purchased it new in April this year. I thought that I would embrace the new world and start streaming and downloading. I should have stayed with the old CD's! I find the GUI very small for my large hands ,especially the keyboard, and I am hopeless in trying to use Tidal and download songs/Albums etc. So I am selling it and staying firmly in the previous century. Happy to post at whatever the actual cost is. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  4. Fantastic looking speakers, and a great but sad story behind them. how do you think they compare to a pair of VAF i66's ? which i am thinking of puchasing Anyone have a view?
  5. Item: Jamo S606 5.1 system with Denon AVR 2307 Location: 3204 Victoria Price: $475 (firm) for the lot Item Condition:All working perfectly- All speakers are in excellent condition, AVR2307 is in good condition but has a few marks. Reason for selling: Decluttering, replacing with high quality sound bar (its a small room!) Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Bank Xfer Extra Info: Pickup only This is a fantastic (if old) home theatre system.The speakers are in very good condition -no marks,or dings on them, the amp is in good condition- it does have a few marks on it. Every thing works as it should, and I can throw in a matching Denon DVD player (not Blue ray) which works perfectly but has some major marks on it if someone wants it. A great starter system for someone who wants a top quality speaker/amp combo for sound bar cost.

  7. Thanks, I have managed to find a pair of 4 year old RTI9's in very good condition for $750. Picking them up at the weekend.
  8. Hi Braddles 63 I have had some good speakers- the VAF's were the best I have heard, but absolutely hated by the wife due to size and looks- so they had to go. The Dynaudios were not a good match to my ears. I just thought I might try something different that does not break the bank for the next 12 months or so. Maybe I should just wait.
  9. I am thinking off the RTI A9 floorstanders - my son has a pair of Polk bookshelf speakers in his room and they seem to be well made and nice sound for the money. I have tried an assortment of speakers with my system- thought I would try some floorstanders. What model do you have?
  10. Hi everyone, Any of you out there have/had/heard Polk floorstanding speakers- Interested to hear what people think of the sound/Brand.
  11. Item: DYNAUDIO CONTOUR 1.4 LE LIMITED EDITION SPEAKERS Bubinga piano lacquer Location: Melbourne Price: 2600 neg Item Condition: Excellent, As New Reason for selling: Not the right sound for me ( the dangers of buying without auditioning!) Payment Method: Cash, EFT, plus shipping Extra Info: I purchased these last week from the original owner to partner with my Naim gear- and after some intensive listening I have decided that they are not for me. Purchased new from Denis White (Adelaide) approx 2 years ago , hardly used, balance warranty transferrable, beautiful Bubinga piano Lacquer finish, outstanding sound quality and finish, Last of the series, Limited Edition. Original boxes and packaging. Shipping at your cost. New price was $5499. More info here : https://www.avconcept.com.au/product/dynaudio-contour-s-14-le-bubinga-bookshelf-speaker/ The Contour LE has been technically refined and further upgraded as well. The Dynaudio soft dome tweeter with Precision Coating provides fine, detailed high frequencies; while the internal wiring uses high-quality OFC copper cable. The crossover has been further refined by using special ceramic resistors and high quality capacitors, providing an exceptionally pure and refined music reproduction. The Contour woofers include the best Dynaudio technology such as MSP cones, extremely light aluminium wire voice coils on Kapton formers and rigid, low resonance die-cast aluminium baskets. The extremely stiff cabinet features a unique baffle. It consists of three layers, including a layer of damping material, and a thick metal plate. This construction effectively reduces cabinet resonance and allows excellent sound performance up to the highest volume levels. On this baffle the tweeter is positioned below the woofers to achieve ideal time alignment at the listening position.

  22. Item: VAF i93 Flagship Loudspeakers; Palisander Gloss Finish RRP $17,000 Location:Melbourne Price: $4900 firm Item Condition:9/10 Reason for selling:Downsizing Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info:Will ship at buyers expense- please note that these weigh 100kg each- so will be pricey. For sale is a pair of VAF i93 flagship loudspeakers in the desirable Santos Palisander piano gloss finish. These speakers weigh 100 kg each and are proudly Australian made and cost around RRP $17,000 delivered to Perth from South Australia. They are in perfect working order, in excellent 9/10 condition and come from an audiophile home, never abused and always treated with care and attention. The i93 model in the Santos Palisander veneer finish is VAF's top of the range model, it sounds superb and is very competent from top-to-bottom - bass response is quoted as being capable down to 21 Hz @ +/- 1.2 dB and 17 Hz @ 6 dB (definitely no subwoofer required here!). They use the expensive high quality Seas Excel Magnesium drivers from Denmark. The VAF i93 sounds musical and sweet, detailed and accurate. They are suitable for the critical audiophile listener as well as being excellent in a top-flight Home Theatre set up. I purchased these from a fellow SN member in February for $5000 and paid $750 to ship them to Melbourne, and they are by far the best speaker I have had- but, they are to big and my wife says they go or I go. I also purchased new grilles direct from VAF- so the speakers present as new. *Serious buyers are welcome to come and hear the VAFs in my home in Bentleigh at any time and I am willing to ship the speakers Australia wide. I do not have the original boxes so it would involve Pack-n-Send,. Regards, Steven Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
