  1. Yes indeed. I’ve become a big fan, and gone up the slippery slope !
  2. nice speakers ! love mine. cords look in very good shape too. Like the OP says, these speakers image extremely well, and mine have just taken a leap this evening putting a set of Gaia III. A nice combo ! GLWTS
  3. very much a bargain set of gear. can't go wrong at that price
  4. And the same here until very recently. And then I borrowed a set of cables from Garry Cawsey when I was at his workshop regarding one of his excellent power boxes. And that was my undoing. So now I've got a few sets & I'm very happy with them. Although it did hurt the bank balance I think they are totally worth it in the scheme of things as they are total 'keepers'. Not only that, bizarrely has in part sorted out some of my issues with room resonances .... I wasn't expecting that at all - double bonus But perhaps the best metric of the improvement in the SQ is the respo
  5. Since you make some lovely cables yourself @ray4410 and I have few in my system, do you have any pearls of wisdom where you think the sweet spot is in terms of shielding, cable thickness, connectors and the trade-offs in cost? If someone is cost conscious, do you put your money into the cable or the plugs ? .... Perhaps I have phrased that poorly ? Maybe the question is more where is the sweet spot in terms overall price to performance, if blackness is your metric ?
  6. Nice work there Kevin, Thanks for your efforts. It makes me think that my investment in some Audio Principe Signatures has been a good choice ... buy Aussie, where you can !
  7. Further information: An earlier Aurealis cable. Excellent cable for the money. I’ve just measured them, and they are just short of 1m, around 995mm. Supplied in original packaging. Express Post included in price, less for local pickup if you are within 5km & wear a mask !

  8. Further information: I’ve had these sitting around for a while unloved. Best that they be put to use. Odyssey cables have plenty of good reviews e.g. http://www.audioreview.com/product/cables/speaker-cables/chord/odyssey.html. Current rrp at CAV is around $250 for unterminated cables. Express Post included in price. Any questions, please PM.

  9. Further information: I had Geoff Maloney make these Copper Litz cables for me along with a Silver Litz pair, and I ended up settling on the latter pair. Hence, they have seen little use. They would suit a system that might be a little on the bright & thin side of things. I was also in the transition period moving from single ended to balanced cables & I hedged my bets. One end is RCA and the other is ETI Kyro XLRs. There is some minor wear at the edge of metal casing on XLR, consistent with fitting to my pre-amp. I've tried to photograph as best as I could. Cur
  10. Further information: I purchased this from SNA a couple of years ago & it was used in my work / office setup .... but I now can't see myself going back there again. For the money, these are a pretty good cable & it has a handy length & good shielding. In very good condition, and supplied in original packaging. Express Post included, but price can be reduced for covid-safe pickup Relist with price drop Photos: PLEASE READ If you are advertising multiple items, you must post one bulk price only, or post seperate ads for each item If you include
  11. Further information: I bought this from SNA several years ago as a dac for my office set up. I never really used it directly as a headphone amp, I used the RCAs output to another headphone amp. It was surprisingly good dac for the coin & the foot-print, and it was simple as it was USB powered ... Very portable. I can’t ever see myself back in an office again, so it should go. Can excluded shipping costs if picked up with appropriate social distancing. Otherwise, Express Post included. Relist with price drop Photos: PLEASE READ If you are advertising mult
