  1. Thanks HdB, two qs: where are you located? How much are you after? Cheers
  2. Item: as per title Price: market value Condition: Used Info: Regardless of EQ taboo, I'm a fan of a little sonic flexibility. Located in Melbourne
  3. Ah, righto. I stand corrected. Well, if these things are anywhere near as good, they'd be great. These are obviously a different speaker, but really great character in the Baby Grands....don't be fooled by the classical nomenclature - They loved all genres
  4. Fantastic opportunity for someone here. Heard the Baby Grands recently and thought they were stunning...great bass and clear as a mountain stream. I'd imagine these would be even better. [emoji108]
  5. Seems an incredible deal...but why so cheap? I can't work it out...

  9. Thanks. I've been curious about Osborn Speakers actually...stunning to look at (imo), but I've not had the chance to run the ears over them. I'll pm you [emoji106]
  10. Could be of interest to someone in the wagga area? He has a few other items as well...some NAD stuff, Tannoy mercurys...

  11. Hey, thanks Martin. Are they the same ones you sold in 2018? Whereabouts in Melbourne are you? Pm personal info if you like [emoji39][emoji106]
  12. Ok, so today I began my day of auditioning at Klapp Audio, with the: MA Silver 200 $1720 ex demo; B&W 704 $3800 Easy winner for me was the MA, despite the price difference, unless you're into big orchestral music. The MA's were far more detailed in my opinion, and precise. But I was left feeling a bit like the Ma's precision was a little cold and unfeeling So, off to Carlton AV to compare: MA again; Legend Kama 9 $2k; Dynaudio Emit m30 $2k Same impression here from the Ma's, in a different room, with different kit.They sounded pretty much exactly the same. Precise but way too cold. Especially once the Legends came on... The legends were a fun sounding speaker with heaps of bass, but the upper mids were a little clumsy for mine. They lacked the precision of the Ma's, but more than made up for it in the bottom end. But they made the Ma's sound ultra conservative and uptight. On to the Dynaudios...well, these just blew the other two away. There were four pyramid shaped piles of dust where the other two pairs used to be. To my ears, the Dyns were superior at every level of the spectrum, and not just by a little bit. I loved them. Wide open presentation. Huge dynamic range with loads of bass without being boofy at all. Clear and breathy treble. So refined in comparison. Brilliant speakers for that money. But here's the catch...I don't think I can do black or white speakers! To me, speakers need a timber finish, they just do. C'mon Dynaudio, you're Danish! A nice blonde timber finish will do! Anyway, those are my thoughts for anyone interested. As for the black or white? I'll give it some more thought to see if I can live with it. Love to hear people's thoughts or suggestions, especially if they're looking to move some floorstanders. I'm still in the market...I think [emoji51]
  13. Without doubt, it's a timber veneer. The term "wrap" can be a little misleading as it's usually used to describe the process of applying vinyl, as in vinyl wrap.
  14. Thanks for the feedback, they're an easy speaker to like, I reckon. It's hard to go past some of the second hand bargains we see in here, but that price is very tempting... a killer price and I've teed up an audition for tomorrow [emoji39] Having said that, I am open to exploring other brands too, so I might also take a peak at the stock at Carlton AV
  15. Love your work[mention=110255]rantan[/mention] ...another quality post, thanks for that. [emoji106] Looks like a bargain mate. I'll have to get down there for a listen I'm pretty sure I've noticed that you're an MA fan as well. Do you have any experience with this model? I'll look into those dyns as well. Cheers
