  1. Hi Chris and John The bass in this model is punchy and extended, but still tight, making them very versatile with location. At present they're working fine in a room only 3.1m wide x 5.4m deep, but they didn't get lost in my largest studio which is more than twice the volume. This is mainly due to their ability to generate an open soundstage.
  2. Further information: PMC Twenty.24 Transmission Line Speakers in Beautiful Walnut Finish. This brand and model should need no introduction, with glowing reviews everywhere. Second from the top of this Series, with substantial but tight bass from the 3m "ATL" (Advanced Transmission Line), larger 170mm bass/mid driver and heavy enclosures with bi-wiring capability, RRP was $7999. Sensitivity of 90dB makes them easy to drive and they can work well near a rear wall. All drivers, cabinets, spikes and grilles are in perfect condition, with the exception of a couple of tiny c
  3. Further information: Very smooth and sweet XLRs handcrafted in Denmark by high end cable specialists with custom-made parts only. Argento Audio design every element in their cables from beginning to end and manufacture their own connectors. Current RRP $3200. These cables feature many technological advancements including the following: Purest silver conductors with edgeless quasi-ribbon geometry and individual conductors for each pole Pure silver contacts using the same materials as the conductors Proprietary Vibration Damping Material drastically reducing dielectri
  4. Further information: Rega DAC in silver with power lead. Rightly recognised as a very musical DAC, especially in its price range. Digital inputs for Coaxial (2), Optical (2) and USB, selectable via front panel push-button. Sampling rates of 32K-192K and 10 different digital filters also selectable on the front panel. This is a fairly compact but heavy unit, indicating a decent power supply. It is NOT the later DAC-R, so has no remote. Hard to beat at this price, however. No problem posting at buyer's expense. Photos: PLEASE READ

  7. Further information: Boulder 1010 Stereo Preamp & pair of 850 Mono Power Amps, 240V versions purchased from the Australian importer Components from this ultra high end US manufacturer rarely come onto the used market in Australia and almost never in this condition. The power amps were bought brand new, the preamp as a single-owner perfect trade-in. Neither have any cosmetic flaw I can see and have performed flawlessly as my reference electronics. More common highly regarded brands like McIntosh, Moon, Musical Fidelity, Parasound, Pass Labs, etc. don't compare from my experience
  8. Further information: Audiophile single-box solution with onboard DAC, MM/MC Phono, HT Bypass, Headphone and Preamp outputs. It caters for all analogue and digital signals, as well as possible incorporation into an AV system, the addition of a subwoofer or power amp and headphones. With all these features it might be considered a lifestyle component, but coming from a prestigious high end company like Leema Acoustics, this would be underestimating its sonic capabilities. The inbuilt DAC with coaxial, optical and USB inputs plus the phono stage are quality inclusions, unlike many mas
  9. Further information: These are typical Spendor speakers, renowned for sweet and musical reproduction as well as outstanding build quality, being designed and hand-built in the UK. The elegantly shaped floor-standing enclosures are constructed of heavily-braced and damped panels and finished in real oak veneer, reducing unwanted vibrations and box colouration. The "S" Series introduced several innovations including "linear flow port technology" to reduce low frequency turbulence, the "e" bass/mid driver with a light but stiff damped polymer cone for ultra-low colouration and an even more seamle
