    SOLD: FS: Sennheiser HD800 Headphones

    Hi, yes they're still available. I'll send you a PM.
  4. Item: Sennheiser HD800 Location: Inner West, Sydney Price: $950 ONO Item Condition: Very Good (dare I say Excellent) Reason for selling: lack of time, not seeing enough use. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: For sale are my beloved HD800 headphones which I purchased last year from another SNA'er. They were sold to me only with a few hours of use on them and since then have been used sparingly. I would estimate roughly 1hr every fortnight or so. Given my schedule, I haven't had adequate time to juggle between hifi and headphones and these are just not seeing enough use to warrant keeping around, despite how brilliant they are. It's a regretful sale as they're the best headphones I have ever owned (and heard). Includes original box, manuals, cleaning cloth and thumb drive - all in top notch condition. Pictures:
  5. Thanks for the heads up. 👍
  6. Does anyone know where to buy tickets for the event?

    ML5 Audition and Impressions

    I wasn't sure if I would be giving away any of Mike's special sauce so I refrained from taking any photos. I probably should have just asked Mike whether it was ok...
  12. Hi everyone, I was travelling in Surfers with family recently and called Mike to ask if I could pop into the factory to have a chat and listen to a pair of ML5’s. At the time, I only knew of the ML5’s by reputation based on what I had read on SNA. However I do have some experience with how Mike’s speakers sound as I own a pair of ML2 Plus R’s which I purchased from another SNA member last year. Mike was more than happy to oblige and I dropped in just as he was making some final adjustments on a new pair of ML5’s. I’ve seen quite a few photos of the ML5’s on SNA but the pair Mike had setup immediately caught me by surprise. They were a reference spec but this was not like any ML5 I had seen before. The tweeter was different. Both the woofer and tweeter enclosure (as I later found out) utilised a solid piece of copper. And lastly, the front baffle was also strikingly different. It looked to be made of some kind of foam. I hope I’ve remembered these details accurately but I’ll leave it to Mike to step in and correct me. Mike explained that he was trying to reduce as much resonance in the speaker as possible and the copper allowed him to have a good portion of that energy to be dissipated as heat (which is obviously not audible). And finally, the ML5’s were also mounted on the new isolation platform which look a bit like coiled springs. In terms of amplification, the ML5’s were being driven by a BHK Signature 250 and a Giesler Audio DAC. The source was Mike’s PC running JRiver I believe. Once we had the source and amplification ready to go we were off and started running through some tracks from the likes of Diana Krall, Ian Moss, Sinatra, Dire Straits and Norah Jones. The first thing that I noticed almost immediately is how present and 3-dimensional vocals sound through these speakers. It felt like the voice was dead centre of the soundstage, floating in front of me. It sounded incredibly natural. I don't think I've heard vocals reproduced like this before. In terms of instrumentation, Diana Krall’s piano and the acoustic guitar on the Ian Moss track were standouts, They were just ‘there’. I know that electrostats have a reputation for being incredibly quick but these speakers are ridiculous. It feels like they start and stop on a dime. The level of control is insane and this is especially noticeable on the Ian Moss track with the varying attack on the guitar strings throughout the song. We continued to run through a few different tracks and eventually wrapped up. To sum up, it was an incredible experience. I would probably have sat there happily for another couple of hours just to experience these new ML5’s for a bit longer. I would be hard pressed to think of a time where it felt like the system started to disappear and it was just the music that remained. This is probably the closest I’ve ever gotten to this experience. Now that I’m back home I’m looking forward to running through the same tracks again for a comparison on my system. As much as I adore my ML2’s (they are a tremendously good speaker), this latest iteration of the ML5 really does feel like a step above. I could see myself owning a pair of ML5's when room space and (and more importantly) budget allows. The latest iteration is phenomenally good speaker and Mike continues to tweak and experiment to get the best out of his designs. If you've never heard Mike's speakers before, do yourself a favour and try and visit the factory in Ashmore and have a listen. You won't be disappointed.
  13. Item: Elektra Pre Amplifier Location: Inner West, Sydney Price: SOLD Item Condition: Excellent (one small nick on the top of the preamp - very hard to discern from photos) Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Pickup preferred but can ship at buyer's expense if required. I've had this for a couple of months but have simplified my system with an integrated amp so this is being listed. Absolutely superb preamp. I find some tube preamps to be a little too laid back (muddy even?) but this seems to have an incredible balance. It paired incredibly well with my Plinius SA-103. Plenty of flexibility with the input and output options as seen from the photos. The replacement cost today is around $4k for a slightly improved model (Pnyx). The included remote only controls volume and mute functions. Pictures:

    I've had my P7 for over 6 years now and cannot see myself getting rid of it anytime soon. It's a fantastic piece of gear. GLWTS
