  1. I meant to help out, as the seller might not get any interest in the Audio section.
  2. This is not audio related, and would be better under https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/forum/16-classifieds-all-other/
  3. I also used a large diaphragm condenser mic. It was definitely warmed up, but I wouldn't dismiss the possibility of noise. They weren't that far from the corners, so were definitely reinforced by the walls.
  4. My ATC SCM 19s are -6db at 54Hz, but ATC measures their speakers in the middle of a large warehouse. In my room I get the average level down to around 25Hz. Here is my response graph at the listening position: (I have room modes to sort out)
  5. Maybe also if it's long enough, but the higher category cables can handle longer distances than lower category ones.
  6. Make sure it does have both tuner and blue tooth, both of these are add on cards and not every ND5 XS has either of these. My ND5 XS has the tuner module but not the blue tooth for example.
  7. I use IsoTek EVO3 Sequel cables and EVO3 Sirius board on my Naim system and used to have the EVO3 Premier with EVO3 Polaris. I hear audible noise from my amplifier even when nothing plays, so this might make the difference between my results and someone else's. The Polaris reduced the noise by perhaps half, but also made the treble a tad louder. The Sirius reduced the noise by perhaps 75%, but didn't alter the tonal balance. I didn't notice a difference in dynamics in either. I also tried my Sirius on an Electrocompaniet ECI3 at a store and couldn't tell a difference there, so maybe either their power or the amplifier produce less noise than mine.
  8. The Naim ND5 XS came out with the option of two add on cards: one adding blue tooth, the other adding a tuner. If you have the tuner one you could listen to radio through it. It doesn't have USB input from a computer, but it does have USB for playing files from a flash drive.
  9. Hi, I'm in the south of Sydney, but the amplifier is sold now.
  10. I think that PM8006 would be more than enough, especially for the 22.
  11. 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:
  12. Thanks. I quite like the look of my ATC SCM 19, they definitely have a unique sound.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
