  1. Hi, I'm in the south of Sydney, but the amplifier is sold now.
  2. I think that PM8006 would be more than enough, especially for the 22.
  3. Item: Rotel RA-820 Location: Sydney Price: $100 Item Condition: Worn with some marks and slight scratches Reason for selling: Replaced Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Bank transfer Extra Info: Specifications from https://www.hifiengine.com/manual_library/rotel/ra-820.shtml: Power output: 25 watts per channel into 8Ω (stereo) Frequency response: 10Hz to 40kHz Total harmonic distortion: 0.4% Damping factor: 20 Input sensitivity: 2.5mV (MM), 150mV (line) Signal to noise ratio: 75dB (MM), 95dB (line) Speaker load impedance: 4Ω to 16Ω Dimensions: 430 x 66 x 271mm Weight: 5.5kg This was used for PC desktop speakers driving KEF Q1 speakers. I tried it on my Spendor SP2/3R2 and it had no problem driving these. Photos:
  4. Thanks. I quite like the look of my ATC SCM 19, they definitely have a unique sound.
  5. I agree. No that is not me, I have these three: Cyrus CD Xt Signature, Stream X Signature, Pre2 DAC Qx, Stereo 200, Vienna Acoustics Beethoven baby grand SE Naim CD5 XS, ND5 XS, Nait XS2, FlatCap XS, Spendor SP2/3R2 Linn Genki, Chord 2Qute, Musical Fidelity A3.2CR, ATC SCM 19 I sold my PMC Twenty.23, so perhaps I don't qualify for this group any more, but there is a chance I might try the Twenty5.23 or Twenty5.22 one day.
  6. Bryston is made in Canada as far as I know. I think there is a misconception here. I have said from the beginning that PMC recommends Bryston, but this does not mean that I think Bryston is the best match, it just means PMC as a company prefers them. In fact I didn't like most Bryston systems I have heard in the past. The only one I did like was their 1KW mono block amplifiers, but driving Dynaudio speakers instead of PMC. I am curious about hearing a Plinius one day.
  7. I have been interested in PMC since 2014, and since then have not seen them recommend anything other than Bryston. Although they seem to be warming up to AVM. Note that this does not mean that Plinius doesn't work well with them.
  8. It sounds like a problem in your apartment circuit. The power amplifier draws more current than the pre amplifiers and source components, so that could be why only the power amplifier causes a problem. In my experience Naim amplifiers are sensitive to mains noise, and an apartment has appliances from all the neighbours plugged in close by. I found the IsoTek EVO3 Sirius to reduce this noise. I measured my wall outlet at 246V and asked Naim about that as my amplifier shows a range of 220-240V. They said it's good and have tested them on as much as 256V without any issues. I don't know what would happen if the voltage is below 220V though. It might be worthwhile checking what your outlet gives you. One last point: My apartment has only two breakers, both at 10A. This means my Hi-Fi shares power with other things in my apartment. If you only have one breaker, or have the Hi-Fi on the same circuit as other items that draw a lot of power, this could be overloading.
  9. As far as I know the old Naims, like the Chrome bumper ones, were more lively in the treble than my Nait XS2.
  10. The first person to inquire is in Sydney, so I'll only look at Pack and Send if it falls through.
  11. I wouldn't mind, but I don't know how I'd go about that. You see I don't have the boxes any more and their shape isn't ideal for just any box.
