  1. Purchased a set of these headphones on Saturday and they are amazing. I’m actually considering saving up for the HDVD800. Awesome price for both GLWTS.

    SOLD: FS: AKGK712 Pro

    Item: AKG K712 Pro Location: Wollongong Price: $250 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Don't use them Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: 6 month old AKG K712 Pro. In excellent condition. No signs of wear. Minimal use. Just for a bit of gaming and some music use. I found them very comfortable headphones with a very nice sound. Comes with box, velvet bag, and two cables (coiled one and straight one). Some light damage to outside box. These are made in Slovakia (earlier models were made in Austria and seem to be more sought after). They retail in Australia for $500+. I bought them in the UK when I was there last year. Buyer welcome to inspect and pickup. Happy to post, but buyer to pay. Otherwise, will meet Sydney buyers in Sutherland area. Thanks Pictures:

    SOLD: FS: Audioquest Dragonfly Red DAC/AMP

    Just a quick update. I found the box.
  5. ha Ha. Always the way isn’t it! You will be very happy with them 😀
  6. Item: Audioquest Dragonfly Red Dac/Amp Location: Wollongong Price: $220 Item Condition: Excellent, As new Reason for selling: No longer required in setup Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This was purchased from Selby Acoustics in November 2018 - I have receipt. It is as new. Comes with leather (leather look?) pouch, instructions and the DAC itself. I don't think I have the box, but I will have a look. Excellent sound quality. Surprisingly given its size, it powered a set of AKG K712 Pro headphones really well. Pickup or I am happy to post for $15 with tracking/insurance. Prefer pickup though. Retails for around $300.

  7. Item: Kef LS50 Wireless in Black/Blue Active Speaker Location: Wollongong Price: $2,500 Item Condition: AS NEW Reason for selling: Too big for desk, hoping to buy a nice set of headphones with sale price (and the rest goes to wife lol). Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD Only Extra Info: I wanted some speakers for my desk (gaming and music use). I wanted the KEF LSX, but..... when I went to buy them they weren't in stock or available for listening and I got upsold to the LS50 Wireless (willingly upsold mind you).These speakers have excellent sound and I do mean EXCELLENT. They are extremely well regarded and I haven't seen anything but glowing reviews. But you guys on this forum know all about them anyways. In terms of detail and clarity, they are on par with my substantially larger floor standing Monitor Audio speakers in the lounge room. However, for sitting at the desk in a small room, they are overkill and aren't being used enough for me to justify my $3k+ purchase and I would prefer to use those funds elsewhere. I think they are better suited to a lounge room or main listening area. They were purchased in December 2018 from a well known Sydney based hifi shop. Literally they are just over one month old and have prob 5 hours use total - I doubt they would even be run in. I have the receipt for warranty purposes etc. I am extremely careful with my belongings and they are as new. No different than if you went in and bought a new set. Smoke free and pet free home. Have all of the original packaging, cables and box. They are very heavy, I think like 10kg each. Happy to meet Sydney buyers in like Sutherland Shire. Or alternatively you are welcome to inspect in Wollongong and listen to them. Pictures:
  8. Just a quick update..... I finally got the speakers and have installed them (2 x Silver FX and 2 x C-280 IDC). I know that my room and placement is pretty compromised, but to be honest, I couldn't be happier. The FX produce a lovely enveloping sound without overpowering any listening position. They look smaller on the wall than I expected, so fit in really well. I don't have many atmos movies, but did watch Mad Max Fury Road and some dolby test clips and it was indeed impressive! I'm hoping to check out some itunes movies with atmos over the weekend!

    Hey from Wollongong

    Hi, welcome from a fellow Wollongong resident!
  10. Thanks guys. I'll put this as withdrawn for now, try and take it back and if that fails relist. Thanks. Thanks for the laugh..... Suffice to say, I'm not the most popular person in my household at the moment.
  11. Item: Gloss Black SVS SB-4000 Location: Wollongong Price: $2750 Item Condition: < One week old.... Reason for selling: It's way too big and I am not allowed to keep Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Hi. I purchased this sub as an impulse buy on Sunday last week to replace a SB-2000. I got it home unpacked it and it is just way, way too big for my setup which is in our lounge room. My wife took one look at it and said NO WAY. As I mentioned this was unboxed only, so I can't take it back but. It has the remainder of the 5 year warranty (being less than 1 week old that's 4 years, 51 weeks). This retails for more than $3,700..... So truly is a bargain is essentially new! Pickup only. Specs are here: https://www.svsound.com/collections/4000-series/products/sb-4000. Pictures:
  12. Dropping the price to $1150.
  13. Item: SVS SB-2000 Piano Gloss Black Location: Wollongong Price: $1250 Item Condition: Excellent, as new really - only purchased in February this year! Reason for selling: Upgraded Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: Hi, I am looking to sell my SVS SB-2000 Sealed Subwoofer. It was purchased in February 2018 from Lifestyle store. Retails new from them for about $1599. It is in as new condition, no scratches or signs of wear. It is gloss black. If you know anything about SVS, you'll know that they make a very decent sub. Doesn't come with box, but comes with grill, instructions etc - pretty much everything you would get if you purchased new. Specs can be found here: https://www.svsound.com/products/sb-2000. I live in Wollongong, but happy to meet up halfway for anyone interested from Sydney. It is reasonably heavy. My ebay profile is: https://www.ebay.com.au/usr/paulie2518 Pictures:
  14. Thanks to all for taking the time to reply and share ideas. I went in on Saturday to order. When I was in there the salesman also suggested an alternative, some Sonance in wall surrounds. They did sound quite good in the demo setup, and would have blended in really well aesthetically so my wife really liked them. I was really worried that being so different from my other speakers that they might sound off, I know the surrounds aren't as important to match, but a lot of people still suggest to do so if possible. When we move, I think the Silver FX will be easier to match into any new room setup also (without leaving a massive hole). That and the Sonance were very, very expensive and there didn't seem to be many reviews or info on them So I have now placed an order for the silver fx and whilst I am crawling around the roof I figured it wasn't THAT much more effort to install some ceiling speakers. So I'll be going from 3.1 to Atmos ha ha.
  15. Well you guys have persuaded me. Thanks for the excellent suggestions and assistance. I think the Silver Fx may be a goer.
