    Hi John, I noticed you have also had problems messaging other users on this site. With respect, I think you may have difficulty buying or selling on this forum if you cant get the private message thing working. The forum does not permit me to post my contact details here. Tom

  6. Item: Marantz CR502DAB (cd receiver) Location: Oakleigh VIC 3166 Price: $425 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Surplus to requirements Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I have owned this since new, great condition. Rated 5 stars by What Hifi https://www.whathifi.com/marantz/m-cr502/review Genuinely used very little, I bought this in the UK originally and then left promptly left the country. Shipped it to Melbourne a few years back and have been holding on to it in the hope of using it in a second system which never happened. Pairs well with Monitor Audio BX2 speakers which are also for sale. 2 x 60w. Full specs here: https://www.marantz.co.uk/uk/products/pages/productdetails.aspx?catid=systems&productid=mcr502 Pictures:

Reason for selling: Deemed to large for second system by my other half Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I have owned these from new, I will be sorry to let them go. Have been holding on to them for a while in anticipation of using them in a second system which has not been possible. I do not have the metal connectors for the binding posts. Have always found speaker cable to work better. Pictures:

    Surround Speaker Placement for potential 5.1

    Does anyone have any experience with Morel speakers - specifically the SP3 https://www.morelhifi.com/product/soundspot-sp-3/ Its design looks ideal for mounting in the position I need to (and angling sharply down from a height). They look to be an improvement in sound quality on the Q acoustics 7000LRi I was considering. I have looked at Monitor Audio Apex A10's, would definitely go for them but the mount doesnt allow them to sit with the side flush against the wall angling downwards.
  10. The house is built, the bookshelf is not. I have another couple of months before the new furniture arrives (since when did furniture take 10 weeks to arrive?!), so I am enjoying a different layout until then. Currently have the tv on the short wall facing out to the long full length of the room. Leaves space behind the sofa, and plenty of space around each speaker. The new sub arrived on Saturday, thanks to Peter from Deephz. Will be running ARC this evening to get the system balanced. Looking forward to testing it out properly tonight but so far very pleased with it. I understand where you are coming from on the sub placement. Having it under the SR position looks good to me too, but it will mean having the sofa pulled away from the wall, not sure how well that will go down with the other half but we will see. Just need to find some good wall mounted speakers for the SR and SL now, but thats a different story.
  11. And I thought I was pushing the boat out. Ha.
  12. The numbers look plenty powerful to me but room interaction also comes into it presumably, and that was my query. For all I know it could be too powerful given the room isn't huge, but better to go too high than too low I had thought.
  13. I was looking at a PSA S1500. Do you think that would be ok for the room? I had a SVS pb1000 in the past and was underwhelmed, although the room was open plan to other areas of the apartment. The pb2000 is too large for wife approval.
  14. Thanks for the advice, I didn't know that.
