  1. I’m not sure I could achieve this using a graphic equaliser with the M-One (for example) because it doesn’t have a pre-out. I'd be using both the Sprout100 or the M-One strictly through their USB input and so I’m not sure how one might feed out the pre-amplified signal, EQ it and then feed it back in. Help me understand if I’m wrong?
  2. I’m also interested in knowing the best possible way to achieve this. If I’m running from USB, and have an EQ app - is that going to affect things horribly? I’m looking for buy on of these or a PS Audio Sprout100 (neither have EQ) as both are a great size/quality option based on my research. Except for the lack of EQ with both? Why might a production like the Topping MX3 offer EQ, and yet these don't? I'm looking at picking up a desktop amplifier which will allow me to use my KEF R3s on my desk (for a time).
  3. I’m helping a mate piece together his setup and have hit a blocker in my research. Can anyone recommend an integrated amp which has the ability to switch between the speaker terminal outputs and pre-outs? Ideally, it would have a USB input too. Not be expensive AF and have a remote. A+B selectors seem to switch between speaker terminals and not the pre outs. Any help is appreciated.
  4. I have a pair of R3s and the S2 performance stand. There is screw holes on both but they don’t line up. And what’s worse, the performance stands don’t have any sort of isolation on top of them. It’s a very hard, slippy plastic surface. I suspect the screw holes on the R3 are for spikes. I can only imagine the screw holes on the stands are for a speaker - bur I’ve not found out which one.
  5. Item: PS Audio Sprout100 OR Audiolab M-One (Silver) Price Range: 600-1000 Item Condition: Used Extra Info: Really hoping to get a hold of one of these, if the price is right. I'm in Erskineville, Sydney and would love to pickup. If posting - then box is required etc. Hit me up, let's get chatting.
  6. Hi All, I've been watching and waiting for the KEF LSX to come to a price I could stomach. And today it fell to $1500 AUD on Amazon AU. https://www.amazon.com.au/KEF-Wireless-Music-System-Black/dp/B07JD1GPJ9/ref=asc_df_B07JFK339D/?tag=googleshopdsk-22&linkCode=df0&hvadid=341791758392&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=5628573395532649952&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9071836&hvtargid=pla-571196692078&th=1 That seems a good deal, especially when people on Gumtree don't seem to want to budget off $160
  7. Wow that's serious value. GLWTS, someone going to land a beast of a prepro.
  8. Massive shortage of these for sale it seems. That's 3 WTB now I think! GL in your hunt mate.
  9. Thanks for the tip. There is a site you can use to setup alerts when it drops below X price. https://au.camelcamelcamel.com/product/B07JDX5Q15?context=search
  10. Item: I'm quite keen on a pair of KEF LSX for use in my Covid cave. Price Range: I'm prepared to pay a fair price for good condition. There is currently some new LSX selling for as low as $1625. I'm hoping for a price close to $1000-1250, as has been seen in the forums before. Item Condition: New to used. Extra Info: White is ideal. Black or Green would also be considered. I live in Sydney and if shipping interstate it'd have to be in original packaging etc to ensure they arrive okay.
  11. I'd also love to know the price and where from. I'm about to post a WTB but if I can purchase new for a relatively good price then I would.
  12. Small update for the members of the community who might come upon this and be in a similar situation. My father purchased his first MC-700 from an Australian distributor however it was a refurbished unit and did not output any sound at all. I believe it to have been a faulty output stage. I was very concerned that this was some of the problems that others have encountered with this unit. However, seeing as it didn't work at all we decided to try again and ordered a factory fresh unit from the US. We took delivery of this second unit during the previous week. And the wee
  13. Thanks all for the comments and feedback. We've decided to go with separates for now. It's part of the fun on building it out for my Dad and I. In the end, I understand some people may have had a bad experience with Emotiva - but I feel that happens with many brands. It seems like a brilliant combo, all they need to do is the minimum that they're advertised to do. I might post an update once we're finished piecing things together.
