  1. You mean short ones from LF to HF binding posts? I make them up as required. Let me know what length you need them to be. Mine will be standard issue not audiophile (not snazzy) but will work and cost you very little, as a favour to a fellow StereoNet denizen.
  2. Item: Woofer for Monitor Audio Gold 1200 floor stander Price Range: not too silly Item Condition: Used Extra Info: I have a picture here which shows the shape of the driver, which is about a 150mm job, with a heavy metal silver surrounding frame - photo example is black. I've inserted another driver for now which approximates the shape - which I reckon they did to make replacements harder to source, but an original would be nice to have. Not essential, as this in just one of a dozen pairs of speakers I own, and not Mission Critical - er, should I say not Monitor Critical? Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible. (You can now delete this text).
  3. Michael Brown still makes Audiospheres and has a shop (rarely actually open for business!) in the main street of Gunning - between Yass and Goulburn.
  4. Further information: This is a set from the late 1990s, designed by Ralph Waters who was also the founder and designer of the Richter speakers back then. The large front and rear speakers are the same except that the front L+R+Centre each have an inbuilt 8” powered subwoofer, so the bass generated by this setup is amazing. But it's not just about bass - the audio quality is exceptional and can be used for music as well as movies. They originally sold for rrp around $7k, in fact the dealer's invoice I have for this set shows $7999. The drivers used are high class and have rubber surrounds, so last a long time. The inbuilt subwoofer amplifier is rated at 225w, and the low frequency response specified is down to 25Hz. There is actually no specified power rating for the five speakers. Cabinets are heavily built, with the floor standers weighing in at 18Kg each. Apart from some fading of the Jarrah veneers, the speaker cabinets and grilles are good. The amplifier had some capacitors and transistors needing replacement and this has been done and they've been running for about a year at my place. The sound is sensational. Original Documentation: comes with various original brochures and instructions - see photo. How they connect up: They connect from the surround amplifier as follows - on the back plate of the Main (R) speaker there are inputs for L+R+C. The inbuilt sub amp and associated circuitry sorts the bass from the midrange and treble, and directs signals to the appropriate drivers. Signals to the Centre and front Left (Slave) are via thick four wire cables (supplied) from the Main which plug in via Neutrik plugs. The rear effects speakers connect directly as per usual from the surround amp/receiver. The surround amp should be set for front & centre speakers Large, and Subwoofer Off. The three subwoofers have their own volume control on the back plate so the amount of bass can be adjusted to suit your taste and the efficiency of the speakers in your room. My sessions with action movies have been exciting - I had to back off the bass volume a bit because it was shaking the room. Dimensions: All four floor standers are 1120x210x285 (hwd) while the centre is 235x700x380 (hwd). Delivery & Setup: free and done by me in the Sydney metro area. Otherwise ask - if it's within the realms of possibility I'll travel further and charge for petrol etc. I have no packaging material for these, so shipping by courier would present problems, but could be done at your risk - ask me about this before purchasing. Before Purchasing: let me know about your surround amplifier and room just to confirm suitability and whether any other cables are needed.

  5. Further information: This is the steam loco City of Chester plus three carriages, some track and a basic bi-directional controller. It has been little used and mainly a display item for years, and the loco will need a good long run to loosen it up. (Note added: I'm continuing to run it on the test track and it is improving every day) All my locos have this issue when left unused for some time - regular use is best. When it runs freely it is the fastest, strongest loco I have ever owned! There are some minor repairs that have been done to the smoke deflector on one side, not obvious, a thin line of super glue. Tracks: 8 pieces of curved track. Add four lengths of Peco 900mm track and you should have a good basic layout. Controller: basic one, not original but also had a brief test and worked well. Postage: ask me if you need this. Pick up: plenty of forward notice is good as I am regularly out of town for short periods. But I'm retired so normally I'm around.

  6. Further information: There's a magic moment for train aficionados in the first Harry Potter movie. It's when they break through to the hidden platform and find this handsome train waiting to take them to the Hogwarts School for Young Wizards. This set is in very good, hardly used condition, although the box shows wear. The carton of bits and pieces has been in storage while the train itself has been on my display wall. Will need a good long run to smooth out stiffness in mechanism through little use, but ran this morning on my short test track. Comes with power supply (UK with Aust adaptor), controller, tracks, kit station (not yet assembled), buffer stop, and track mat - see photo - this is 148cm x 99cm so fits on a standard size dining table or trestle table. Adds lots of character to the layout. The tracks included fit this template. Loco and tender had to be separated for packing. Re-attaching tender is via one small bolt at rear of loco. Freight or Postage: ask about this and I'll get a quote.

  7. Item: Dual 1237 turntable motor Price Range: under $75 Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: Tricky voltage setting and seized bearing meant the existing one stopped and could not be resuscitated! It's the SM-840 motor. I don't want to spend a fortune on it, any I've seen advertised are too exxy by the time one pays freight from USA or EU. It looks similar to the one pictured. Update: I have a similar one coming from the USA that might do the job, but don't know until it arrives, so leave this running in case something better and fairly cheap turns up!
  8. Hi Peter - apologies for late response - been watching a movie with my missus. $18 will cover it, no probs. Regards, Geoff
  9. Further information: Approx 75 discs, various artists as listed. Ray Columbus (She's a Mod), Small Faces, Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, Icehouse, Hoodoo Gurus, Robert Palmer, The Style Council, The Photos, Little Eva, Elvis Costello, Janet Jackson, Ike & Tina Turner, Graham Parker, Partridge Family, John Farnham, Bruce Springsteen, Boy George, Wilson Picket, Tavares, Perry Como, Carly Simon, Bryan Ferry, George Harrison, Sherbet, Allniters, Derek & Dominoes (Layla), Bangles, Roger Waters, The Knack, Mental As Anything, Cold Chisel, Crowded House, Divinyls, Midnight Oils, Boom Crash Opera, Pet Shop Boys, Triffids, Hollies, Saints, Models, Mick Jagger, Sting, Billy Joel, Enya, Paul McCartney, Dr. Hook, Carpenters, Daddy Cool. Condition: most look good, a few look well used, some are EP (four tracks). Some have the larger center hole so your turntable needs to have the center adaptor for those. The majority are in paper sleeves, but there are quite a few full picture covers. Pick up Baulkham Hills, or ask about postage/courier cost (at buyer’s cost and risk).

  10. Further information: My Build Floor standing 8” two-way with Fountek Ribbon Tweeters I have too many speakers, because building them is my hobby. So, each time I build another pair (currently underway) a pair has to go. The price is less than the price of the materials in them. With this pair you get fine detail, gleaming liquid highs from the ribbon tweeters, and good coverage down to very acceptable bass from the 8” cone. They don’t really need a subwoofer, but I’m not opposed to adding one to just about anything. Dimensions: approx. 890x290x280 with plinth at 355x325. It is a sealed enclosure. Impedance: 5.5ohms, easy to drive by my Sonos Connect Amp or pretty much any common amplifier or stereo receiver. Pickup from Baulkham Hills 2153, or I can deliver and set up free if you’re not far away. I also travel fairly often between Sydney and Goulburn district, so drop off might be possible.

  11. Further information: Floor standing two-way speakers using Peerless woofer/midrange and Krix (I think made by Tonagen) soft dome tweeter. I'm a retired hifi person who likes a bit of DIY in my retirement. Selling to help fund and find space for more builds! Sound is smooth, mellow, not lacking upper detail but not too assertive. Has bass presence but would be more what I consider full range with a subwoofer - but let's face it I put a subwoofer with most speakers! These would be happiest with a good solid amplifier of 50w or more; I've run them with a Sonos amp. Impedance 8ohm at terminals, not sure about other specs, but I've got them sounding nice. You'd be hard pressed to get better sound in new speakers at $1000/pair. Cosmetics: these are the "next step up" from my famous "rustic finish" but still rough around the edges and joins. Finished in Sandbank colour, with stained timber top and plinth. Dimensions: approx. 850 x 200 x 250 (hwd) with the plinth footprint more like 250x290.

  12. The Secret Weapons are an early but no-holds-barred Ralph Waters design, featuring full range sound and bipolar effect. He stopped making them before the Wizard Mk1 took off because they were just too expensive to build. Not often seen at all these days. link to ebay. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Richter-Secret-Weapon-Speakers-Rare/124162316501?hash=item1ce8a698d5:g:0fkAAOSwNYZen7up&frcectupt=true Richter Wizard Mk.1 for $120 at Kogarah NSW. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/RICHTER-3-WAY-FLOOR-STANDING-SPEAKERS-AUSTRALIAN-MADE-HIFI-AUDIOPHILE/264705597665?hash=item3da1aee0e1:g:KW8AAOSwnuxenQvI&frcectupt=true They look in pretty good condition for speakers from the late 1980s to early 1990s. Very popular, easy to drive.
