  3. Item: Bowers & Wilkins CM10 S2 gloss black Location: Newport, VIC Price: $3,200 Item Condition: 9/10 (only because I do not have the original boxes) Reason for selling: Speaker upgrade Payment Method: Cash at pickup Extra Info: Considering selling my B&W CM10 S2s.

  4. This unit is best for someone who is keen to start using the XMC-1’s great features (e.g. USB DAC, Dirac Live, excellent sonic performance) now, knowing that he/she will have the opportunity to upgrade to Atmos/DTS-X at a later stage (probably early/mid next year). The XMC-1 is still available for sale, can be auditioned in Newport.
  5. Hi Phillip, I will probably downgrade from the XMC-1 (put less focus on HT and more on 2ch for now).
  6. No worries at all, how’s the XMC-1 working for you? Mine is up for sale at the moment.

  8. Item: Crown CTs 600 power amplifier Location: Newport, VIC Price: $100 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Surplus to my needs Payment Method: Cash at pickup Extra Info: This is a 2-channel power amplifier housed in a 2-space rackmount frame, offering power levels and features meant to serve fixed installation sound applications. This amplifier is notable for a completely independent array of switches and indicators for each channel, including high and low impedance operation, input sensitivity, high pass filters, and an advanced level of well-designed overload protection circuitry. This unit includes a PIP-LITE module for networked controlling via either HiQnet and System Architect or TCP/IQ and IQwic. Here are some specs: High-power, 2-channel, 2U rackmount amplifier for installed sound applications Legendary Crown class-I (BCA) and AB+B output topologies offer the best in amplifier reliability Switching power supply lowers overall amplifier weight Selectable "Constant-Voltage" or low-impedance (4/8 ohm) operation Independently selectable Input Sensitivity switching per channel Rear panel Programmable Input Processor (PIP2) connector accepts accessory expansion modules for specific custom installation requirements Thermal Level Control (TLC) circuitry protects amplifier from overheating; engages input compressor, dynamically reducing input gain when individual channels overheat Junction Temperature Simulation (JTS) quick-activation circuitry limits drive level of output devices to tolerable range if excess power is required; protects output transistors without shutting down channel Continuously variable fan cooling; venting with front-to-rear forced airflow Removable balanced terminal block input connectors with "Y" switch Switchable high pass filter per channel, eliminates step down transformer saturation in distributed systems Complete array of front panel function and warning indicator LEDs for each channel Complete array of rear panel function and filter switches Power on indicator flashes when AC mains are under or over voltage Advanced protection circuitry covers shorted outputs, DC, mismatched loads, overheating, high frequency overloads, voltage fluctuation and internal faults. Audition can be organised in Newport, VIC, 3015.
