    DIY audio: what are you building?

    It's 26mm Merbau benchtop, oiled. The box behind is plywood. This design needs little in the way of crossover, and if I do add a super (which Coral themselves are ok with - I have the brochure on the MHD-55) it will only need limiting to higher frequencies by a capacitor. So far none of the possible supers I've tried are convincing, pointing forwards or backwards. My designer friend may have something for me to try, but nothing is being added at this point. They sound very nice as they are.

    You may be right. The ears will be the final arbiter, and looks will count of course. I won't cut or wire anything in until it's a convincing sound & look. Currently trialling Linaeum ribbons which are also dipole-ish and run out to 30khz allegedly. But you're right about them already looking finished.

    Latest build: Coral Flat 10 with Coral MHD-55 tweeters. Contemplating adding a super-tweeter.
  4. sold subject to payment being done.
  5. Conductor and Orchestra? Various famous names and orchestras from the EMI stables, from some earlier song cycles (Fischer-Dieskau, Schwartzkopf) to the more recent like Rattle. Conductors of the symphonies include Giulini, Tennstedt, Barbirolli, Rattle, with others like Szell and Klemperer on song cycles with the above singers and Kathleen Ferrier with Bruno Walter. It's an EMI all-star cast.

  8. OK, here goes my final recommendation on this thread. These look good, apart from some tweeters pushed in - which should be fixable. Four Rega Jura speakers - 8" two ways, floor standing - were initially advertised at $400 the lot, no bids, now up for starting bid of $300, and I have confirmed that an offer of $300 would be accepted. Pickup only, Turramurra (Sydney, northern suburb) I have no room at my place, which already resembles a secondhand speaker shop. Check them out, see what you think. That's it from me, over and out. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Rega-Jura-Floorstanding-speakers-4-available-top-condition-80-cm-high-20cm-wide/153248751141?hash=item23ae565e25:g:zmoAAOSwSxRb2A0g:rk:7:pf:0

    FS: VERDI 7 OPERA BOX SETS

    That's a nice big box set - I used to have a shop which dealt in s/h LP & new CD. The La Scala recordings that DG did back then were tops. None more so than the Kubelik set of Rigoletto. Get it whatever way you can, it is one of the very best opera recordings I have ever heard and owned, and Scotto, who sometimes gets mixed reviews, is in electrifying good form there. She was damn good in the above Traviata too with Votto conducting. Youthful, tonally exciting, vocally gymnastic. All of the DGG La Scala sets from that era had quality in every department. Singers, orchestra, conductors, and sound. There are two of Abbado's here as well. I have his complete opera recordings for DGG.

    Yeah, no sweat. I'll have to find a box anyway - needs to be about 250x250x300mm. Looks like it could be about $14 via Couriers Please or $17 via Star Track to Melbourne. Sydney Metro area $12 via Aust Post.
