  1. Further information: 2m (190cm not including plugs) with US plug and IEC C15 connector. Asking price includes free shipping. Also selling 1m (see other post). Purchased from another SNA member a few years ago but never got around to using them. Apparently excellent cables but I've never been one to notice any difference with power cables. I'd like to move them onto a new home where they can be better appreciated.

  3. Thanks for the suggestion. I ended up fixing them myself:
  4. I'd love these as surrounds but they'd be worth more than my fronts! How would they match with Studio v5s?
  5. Just an update for anyone interested or who might be having similar issues. Today I completely removed the crossover and it turned out the one of the lower binding posts was not properly soldered to it. The behaviour described above was due to the weight of the speaker cable applying downward pressure to the post and breaking the circuit. Somehow, when only the lower posts were connected, it worked consistently (still haven't quite worked that part out yet). In any case, this is now fixed and I hope it may help someone else. A multimeter was very helpful.
  6. Hi all, My CC-690 recently started sounding awful (tinny/vibration), and with the current travel restrictions, I thought I'd open it up and have a look. I couldn't see anything obviously wrong, so I just re-seated the mechanical connections at the drivers and crossovers. In testing, I came across the following odd behaviour: - With only the upper range (top binding posts) connected, the tweeter/midrange assembly works as expected (woofers silent) - With only the lower range (bottom binding posts) connected, the 4 woofers work as expected (tweeter assembly silent) - When both sets of binding posts are connected (using either bi-wire cables or the supplied links), only the tweeter assembly works (woofers are silent) I can't understand how this is possible as the top binding posts appear to be wired directly to the tweeter assembly's crossover and the bottom posts to the main crossover (which directly drives the 4 woofers). In this photo, the purple/black pair of wires go directly to the tweeter's crossover: If anyone with more knowledge of speaker design could help me to understand what's going on (and ultimately, to fix the speaker!), that would be fantastic. This is doing my head in! Thanking you all in advance.
  7. Thanks for that, the guy I spoke to at AA suggested a repairer, but said he didn't think it would be a crossover issue. In any case, I called the repairer and he was booked out for several weeks. Given the travel restrictions, I thought I'd open it up and have a look myself and found some odd (to me) behaviour. I'll start another post since this will be off topic.
  8. Thanks for the suggestion. I was bi-wiring them and suspected it may be an issue with the cable, so I attached the connectors and used a single cable from another channel (that was working fine), but the issue remains.
  9. Hi all, I have a Paradigm Studio v5 setup and unfortunately by CC-690 (centre) seems to have died. The sound is very course/tinny across all frequencies, so I suspect it's the crossover. I've never had a speaker require repair before so I have no idea where to start. Does anyone have any recommendations for a trustworthy repairer in Melbourne? Preferably southeastern suburbs but I'm happy to travel if required. Thanks in advance!
