  1. I think this is a very unlikely scenario. You are buying out of Denmark, not <insert 3rd world country of your choice>. What credit card did you use? If they don't supply, you should be able to make a claim on your card.
  2. Well, you are in good company. The pair in Mads' house is white as well, he told me. His wife's choice apparently, he would rather have had walnut! 😂
  3. I went for walnut. I really don't like white speakers and black look a bit bland. How about yours?
  4. I ordered the A500s last month. I would like the A700s, but in order to save $4k, I'll start with the A500s and if they satisfy, then I'll stick with them and sell some of my existing components. If not, I could either send them back or upgrade to the A700s. I current run some floorstanders with 2 sub-woofers, so it will be interesting to see how this works with the A500s. If you pair in the sub-woofers, you lose the room correction (which is managed by the WISA box). If I use the WISA box, then I can't run subwoofers unless WISA enabled (I have a Sonos sub in my other system which
  5. Item: Atohm GT2.0 and 3.0 loudspeakers Price Range: Typical discount from new Item Condition: Used Extra Info: Would prefer black or rosewood, not that interested in white Location is Melbourne, so preference would be for local, but will consider shipped, especially if in original boxes/packing materials.
  6. 🤣🤣 Hope you have recovered now. It was probably still worth it, though?
  7. I do know how you feel...I certainly needed a day to recover after my weighlifting session.
  8. Further information: I bought these speakers in Adelaide approximately two years ago and they have been my main speakers since then. I drove to Adelaide to collect them and since then they have been in Melbourne. Osborn speakers don't need much introduction in Australia and these have performed exactly as expected. These are the Elite models which are lead-lined and weigh 75kg each. The reference model also has additional bracing compared to the standard model They are the earlier Eclipse with the Focal beryllium tweeter, which are quite rare and usually preferred
  9. Further information: I recently told a friend of mine that I was looking at upgrading my system and he asked me if I would like to borrow some of the equipment he had which he wasn't using so I could compare what I had with some alternatives. I ended up with an additional pair of speakers, a power conditioner and this Pass Labs power amplifier. Then lockdown hit and instead of having the equipment for 2 weeks, I was lucky enough to have it for 4 months! Not only that, I have been working from home, so it has definitely been good company on the days when I haven't had too many
  10. Further information: I bought this unit in September 2015. I then purchased a much more substantial headphone amp and this was left in its packaging at the back of the cupboard. I have only taken it out once, which is to take these photos attached. It has decent reviews for a USD200 unit: https://www.cnet.com/news/upgrade-your-headphones-sound-with-musical-fidelitys-v-can-amplifier/ It is available for pick-up or else if you would like it posted to you, that can be arranged at extra cost (let's say $10 within Australia), it will come in its origi
  11. Hi Hugh, Welcome aboard. I was looking at the Buchardt speakers online the other day, it was the first time I had heard of them. I am Danish so I was immediately interested in them. Can you provide some thoughts on how they sound? Are you happy with them? Thanks Torben
  12. I know a lot of people who use them as monitors. I have some and they work equally well in a normal lounge-room type set-up
  13. I would like to buy some. I am in North Melbourne. Picking up makes sense, although I would need to plan for my next drive past Camberwell... I'll PM you with details and we can arrange a handover.
