  1. Item: Richter Wizard Mk II Floor-standing Speakers with Unicorn centre Location: Carindale, Brisbane Price: $420 Item Condition: Used Reason for selling: Bought as part of bigger setup, but decided not to keep these components. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: Used Richter Wizards Mk II Floor-standing Speakers (x2) with Unicorn centre speaker, finished in black woodgrain finish. The speakers are fully functional and the cabinets and covers are in excellent original condition. All of the speaker drivers and tweeters are in perfect condition, except for one driver on a floor standing speaker which has a small radial tear in the suspension (please see picture), but I cannot sense any impact on sound quality as a result of this. The floor standing speakers also have provision for floor spikes or feet to be screwed into the bottom of the cabinets. Please see review for the floor standing speakers here: http://www.audioreview.com/product/speakers/floorstanding-speakers/richter-acoustics/wizard-mkii.html Please see specifications for Wizard MK II and Unicorn Centre Speaker sections of the document per the link below for specification. https://www.richter.com.au/wp-file-browser-top/manuals/Specifications/Legend-I-II-Spec-sheets.pdf With regards to the small radial tear, I contacted Richter Audio providing them with a picture of the tear, and their response is provided below: Hi , it is more of a cosmetic problem than anything, you could carefully try to use a rubber adhesive to join where the tear is but the only other solution is a full surround replacement. I would try just lightly applying a very small bit of adhesive first. Regards Brian Less Pictures:
  2. I think the automatic setup might not run successfully, as it will "look" for another far rear speaker if you connect only one. I have had this on normal 5.1 setup when I only connected one of the rear speakers. You could always do the setup manually, and set the unused channel to minimum output level - might even be able to disable it completely which is preferable I think, and it would show as such on the display. I am not sure what part of the decoded sound would go to the single far rear speaker though - would imagine that you might loose the bit of special effect associated with the channel that you disabled.
  3. I trust the 685 is serving him well. Having a bit of an understanding and experience of various models in the Yamaha receivers range, and having tested more than 30 of these over the past few years, I personally prefer the sound and feel of the older bigger models in the range over the newer smaller models with all the fancy new technology for the same cash outlay. If there is no specific requirement for a specific technical specification (ATMOS etc), I would rather get an older Aventage RX8xx or even RXV779 / 879, than a new RXV685 (which is of course a decent piece of equipment in it's own right). One only realizes the differences when you had the opportunity to get your hands on a number of HTR, RXV, RXA and RXS receivers in the Yamaha range.
