  1. Item: Whatmough S33i Signatures Location: Cheltenham can post at buyers expense. Won’t be cheap they are large and heavy. Price: $6500 open to realistic offers. Item Condition: 18 months old still Like new. Have original packaging. Reason for selling: no room for hifi equipment Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Bank Transfer Extra Info: I’m regretfully selling these but with my move to QLD I don’t have room for a large hifi system. They are located at my old work The Audio Experts / Whatmough Audio in Cheltenham and can be picked up from there. these are a beautiful sounding speaker they are still a current model and retail at $11,499 they perform well above price range. If they sell at $6500 I’ll include the upgraded isolation feet. Description Whatmough S33i 3-Way Floor-Standing Speakers Overview The Whatmough S33i floor standing speakers are the ultimate speaker in the Whatmough Signature series. Their design and built quality are up to the audiophile standards. The S33i delivers truly spectacular sound. The Signature S33i are based on the Performance Series P33i, with significant improvements to bring them up to Signature Series status. Cabinet This cabinet design offers more than just great looks – they also offer improved sound quality. By eliminating internal parallel surfaces, the curved surfaces offer clearer and cleaner sound by minimizing internal standing waves. Even more significantly, the curved panels are inherently more rigid and less resonant than the flat panels of a conventional speaker cabinet, which further helps to minimize coloration. Tweeter The Signatures S33i uses the same Ring Radiator tweeter that is used in Whatmough’s flagship speaker, the Paragon. This ultra-expensive tweeter sounds incredibly fast and detailed while also sounding extremely smooth and open. It has a very flat response extending to beyond 40KHz. Midrange The Signature S33i uses a 100mm cellulous fibre coned mid-range driver. This driver has the speed and transparency no bass/mid driver can match. Bass The Signature S33i uses two 170mm fiberglass/nomex hybrid drivers especially developed for these speakers. The cone for this speaker is made of Nomex with a skin of fiberglass. This long throw driver uses a 33mm high temperature voice coil and a large double magnet system. This driver has very high power handling as well as a very transparent detailed sound quality. Crossover The S33i uses high grade audiophile film and foil capacitors in critical positions. Air cored coils are used throughout, wound from a heavier grade of high purity Australian copper. System The perfect partner in the Signature Series system featuring the S8i in the centre and P12i or PFX3i speakers in the rear for a truly exceptional home cinema surround sound experience. The S33i is fully made in Australia. Configuration 3-way bass reflex enclosure using two 170mm hybrid fibre cone long elbow bass drivers, a 100mm cellulose fibre midrange driver and a 35mm dual concentric tweeter with wave guide centre plug. Nominal Impedance 4 Ohms Amplifier Power Requirement 25-150 watts RMS Power Handling Transient level in excess of 300 watts with an average level of 120 watts. Sensitivity 88dB input level of 2.83V. (1 watt into 8 ?) Frequency Response 38Hz to 40kHz ± 3dB Dimensions 260W x 1200H x 430D mm Weight 45kg each Finish Real Bubinga Timber Veneer or Piano Graphite Warranty 5 Years* Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.

  8. Item: Whatmough Impact 2 Subwoofer Location: S/E Melbourne can deliver in reason and small charge depending I will be driving from Melbourne to QLD so I pass through Sydney can meet if someone in nsw or qld is interested. Price: Price drop for quick sale moving to QLD. . $1200 these subwoofers were $3999 new. I'm open to offers Item Condition: Excellent condition only done about 20hrs, a couple of marks from rubbing when in transit see photos Reason for selling: Not used and I'm moving to QLD Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This is one of the most musical subs I have heard but I now have Whatmough Signature 33s and a sub is not required. Product Description Whatmough Impact 2 Active Subwoofer - Extreme low level of distortion with very clean, powerful and tight bass, this subwoofer is capable of producing accurate low musical notes below 20Hz at remarkably high volume levels. The tight bass extension of this subwoofer is acoustically controlled without the usage of equalisation. The Impact2 uses a 250mm extremely long throw driver which has a huge 75mm huge voice coil for a higher power handling and a massive magnet structure. This driver alone weighs over 10 kgs. Because it has such a long throw (36mm linear throw), this driver is capable of higher output than most 305mm driver, yet its smaller size allows it to be noticeably faster and tighter. A true audiophile subwoofer … Finish - Piano Graphite Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  9. Hi, I’m interested in these items if still available. Cheers Paul
  10. Item: AudioQuest, Aspen, Speaker Cables full range 3m / 10ft pair $1250 Location: Clayton or Devon Meadows happy to post anywhere. Price: $1250 Item Condition: Used but in excellent condition I have original receipt from Amber Technology who are the importers. Reason for selling: I'm now running mono blocks so need shorter speaker cables Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, direct deposit, COD Only Extra Info: SOLID PERFECT-SURFACE COPPER+/PERFECT-SURFACE COPPER (PSC+/PSC) CONDUCTORS: Aspen uses a carefully finessed combination of high-purity Perfect-Surface Copper (PSC), and extreme high-purity Perfect-Surface Copper+ (PSC+) conductors in a Self-Shielding Double Counter-Spiral HyperLitz design. Solid conductors prevent strand interaction, a major source of distortion. Surface quality is critical because a conductor can be considered as a rail-guide for both the electric fields within a conductor, and for the magnetic fields outside the conductor. The astonishingly smooth and pure Perfect-Surface nearly eliminates harshness and greatly increases clarity compared to OFHC, OCC, 8N and other coppers. The superior purity of PSC+ further minimizes distortion caused by grain boundaries, which exist within any metal conductor. DIELECTRIC-BIAS SYSTEM (DBS, US PAT #S 7,126,055 & 7,872,195 B1): Insulation is an electrical barrier, and also a “dielectric” because it is inside the conductor’s magnetic field. All insulation slows down and smears the signal inside. When insulation is unbiased, it causes different amounts of delay for different frequencies and energy levels, a real problem for very time-sensitive multi-octave audio. AudioQuest’s DBS creates a strong, stable electrostatic field which saturates and polarizes (organizes) the molecules of the insulation. Saturated (full) insulation absorbs less and therefore releases less out-of-phase energy. Minimizing nonlinear time delays results in clearer sound emerging from a “blacker” background. The DBS battery packs will last for years. A test button and LED allow for the occasional battery check. DOUBLE COUNTER-SPIRAL GEOMETRY: Aspen and the other AQ “Tree” Series cables have an inner circular array of positive conductors spiraling in one direction. Around this inner group, the negative conductors spiral in the opposite direction, which makes possible the significant performance advantage of the positive and negative conductors crossing each other instead of being parallel. However, the critical need for positive and negative to have a fixed non-changing relationship is ensured as the negative and positive groups are in fact two tubes with a perfectly consistent relationship. The result is an astonishing clarity, like focusing a camera lens you had no idea was so far out of focus. CARBON-BASED NOISE-DISSIPATION AND CROSSTALK-DISSIPATION SYSTEM (INSULATION): The negative conductors in Aspen are covered with partially conductive Carbon-Loaded Polyethylene. This remarkable material damps radio-frequency garbage from being fed back into the amplifier. The sonic benefit is exactly the same reduction in “hash” and improved dimensionality that comes whenever RF interference is reduced in an audio circuit. Another carbon layer also damps interaction between positive and negative conductors, and an external 3-layer carbon-based NDS System additionally absorbs external interference. SPREAD-SPECTRUM TECHNOLOGY (SST): Any single size or shape of conductor has a specific distortion profile. Even though radially symmetrical conductors (solid or tubular) have the fewest discontinuities, any particular size still has a sonic signature. SST is a method for significantly reducing the awareness of these character flaws by using a precise combination of different size conductors. The different SST-determined conductor sizes used in Aspen allow an exceptionally clear, clean and dynamic sound. BIWIRING: When possible, running separate conductors or separate cables to the treble and bass halves of a speaker will considerably reduce distortion. BiWiring helps by keeping the large magnetic fields associated with bass energy out of the treble cable, allowing the delicate upper frequencies to travel a less disturbed path, like keeping the big waves out of the water when you swim. Although Aspen is an ideal Full-Range cable, it has also been designed to make it possible to truly Single-BiWire. Many multi-conductor cables claim to be good for BiWiring, but unless there is real magnetic isolation between the bass and treble conductor groups, dividing such cables into bass and treble can actually be worse than keeping them together. TERMINATIONS: Aspen is prepared by Cold-Welding AudioQuest’s 1000 Series Hanging-Silver Multi-Spades or Bananas. The plugs are plated directly over pure Red Copper by submerging (hanging) the spades and bananas into a vat of extreme-purity silver, resulting in a very thick Direct-Silver Plate. There are no intermediary performance degrading materials. Aspen’s breakouts (where the cable divides into positive and negative legs) are also special: Because a metal breakout would disrupt the cable’s magnetic fields, Aspen’s breakouts are magnetically invisible ABS. DIRECTIONS: Because all drawn metal is directional, all audio cables are directional. AudioQuest analog and digital audio cables are all controlled for correct directionality. The best sound is made possible by following the “Amp” and “Speaker” labels on Aspen’s breakouts.

  19. Hi all, I'm Paul. I have worked for many years in the HiFi Industry well over 18 years now, and most recently started at The Audio Experts (Whatmough Speakers) in March this year. I must say my most recent move has been very enjoyable and I'm loving the people I work with and the atmosphere of the shop. I'm looking forward to being part of the community and reading about your experiences and seeing what we are all upto.
