  1. Item: Asus Essence One Location: Perth, Melville Price: 200 Firm Item Condition: VG - Mint Reason for selling: Upgraded Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: https://www.asus.com/au/Essence-Hi-Fi-Audio/Xonar_Essence_One/ Relist. Owned for approximately 6 months. I thought the DAC was very good, the headphone amp is clear, powerful, nothing special though, but I went with tubes (I have treble t90s though). Used it as a preamp for awhile and it was actually okay, sounded better than the ~1000 integrated I had at the time, but not any better past that point.
  2. Sweet highs, honey mids, and bass it should not have for its size. Strings sound gorgeous on these be it violin or guitar. They look stunning in person.
  3. Item: Focal 807V + Focal 800SW (matching) Location: Melville, Perth Price: 1350ono Item Condition: Good. Some cosmetic wear. Reason for selling: Surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Was purchased locally. Love the Focal sound. Happy to demo, but please be serious. Photos don't show grills, yes they all have grills. Pictures:
  4. Item: Yamaha NS 300x + (NOS) Spare Mid Driver Location: WA Price: 800 Item Condition: Near Mint Reason for selling: Went another direction Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Purchased from here last year. Unfortunately one mid range got damaged in transit. It is cosmetic only and does not affect music. In addition, I attained the replacement mid driver (original part) which would be included in the sale should you want to swap it out. Of all the Yamaha NS speakers I have tried thus far, this one has been my favorite, I'm not sure why either. It is also a surprisingly sensitive speaker. I had planned to build a valve system around it, but I lack the resources and time for multiple systems. Serial numbers are matching and all stock. Will upload a sound demo later or on relist.

  5. Item: Hypex NC400 (stereo power amp) Location: WA Price: $1200 Item Condition: Mint Reason for selling: Surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Comes with XLR-RCA Cables just in case Purchased from jeffreyw here, who decided to go in the HT direction. Original builder is James Romeyn. http://jamesromeyn.com/product/hypex-professional-build-service/#tab-description Amp is 200w - 8 ohms / 400w - 4ohms. And has an inaudible noise floor, total black. I really enjoyed my time with this amplifier. Liquid mids, and no compromise in the bass, very neutral tone, neither warm nor cool. Would be interesting to see how it pairs with different pres, I used a cheap one and it sounded great.
  6. Beautiful stands, and a really good price for a local buyer. GLWS

  8. Cheers Phil Will have to demo some more speakers, its good fun. Darwins a bit far though
  9. Item: Yamaha NS1000m Location: Perth, Melville Price: 1800 Item Condition: Quite Good, some marks. Reason for selling: Restless Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: What an amazing speaker the NS1000m has been for me. This pair was purchased from WIlmax on here, and shipped over to Perth. Originally it didn't have the cloth grills (many don't), until I purchased a set from here. The condition is quite good, although I would have loved to repaint them and do the crossover upgrade. My opinion? Best speakers I've had. I do want to hear more speakers, and record more speakers, was a blast doing these. Attached is a sound demo, I hope you get a chance to listen (just for fun). Pictures:
  10. I have a 600 page book on room acoustics. Ill try and save you some time. Most of the DIY stuff you can make is for specialty cases for larger rooms with specific frequency problems. The cheapest way to do this is to add some non reflecting clutter to your room. Curtains, rugs, clothes rack. If you can afford any soubd absorption you could use the cheap padd for side walls. It wont do any more than clutter. If you can spend a bit buy sets bass traps for 2 of the corners. Bass traps are great, but good ones are quite expensive. Aside from this, move the speakers around and test out configurations. There should be at least 20 different ways to set them up if you think of the room like a matrix and the speaker and listening positions as variables to change. So far Ive included no maths. You should be able to get okay sound with your ears and some clutter, and pretty good sound with bass traps. You can also cheat with bass traps and have them angle tour speakers directly, avoiding ruining the soundstage if your careful, for critical listening. If you have a mic use that to record your room. That will give a hint about how good- bad things are. Its amazing how slurred and wet a room can be, and you wont notice until a mic makes it clear just how bad things are. I really do recommend the bass traps. But use your ears and youll do fine.
  11. Silky highs, I love the Al/Mag Tweeter, can listen to those highs all day.
  12. Anyone in Perth hiring for a second job? Looks the goods. GLWTS
  13. I am currently using my friends CD-DAC S7 as a DAC and a pre-amp for my NS-1000Ms. Love this unit. It's like the lush dial gets turned right up. GLWS
