  1. Chalk up another vote for Focal Clear!! In fact... I prefer it to the LCD 2 for EDM (which is mostly what I listen to). LCD 2 just sounds too dark (veiled) to me. I was surprised to discover how much personal preferences for tonal qualities can effect the impressions I have of headphones. (Yep, I know... duh!) My audition process involved buying some second hand pairs to try out at home. I was gobsmacked when I first put on the LCD 2's... I was expecting so much.... but I instantly knew they weren't the ones I was looking for. I was naively expecting that I would listen to them, and have a similar opinion to the consensus of so many positive reviews.... Nope. Life isn't that simple. When I put on my Clear's for the first time... magic! The search was over. The moral of the story: You will know them when you hear them. None of us can accurately predict which ones you will prefer.
  2. Nice deal. And George is a suburb guy to deal with. (I bought some ATC's off of him earlier this year... A life changing experience 😀 ) Cannot go wrong here.
  3. You will definitely get an audio upgrade. There is a big jump in sound quality from the entry level AVR's and the mid and high ends of the ranges. As someone suggested - you could easily buy a second hand Denon from a few years back for a similar audio upgrade and save yourself some bucks.... Could be a good idea if all of the extra tech is not even something that you need / care about...
  4. Further information: I purchased these here a couple of months ago, as part of the search for my perfect headphones. They are sublime, but don't represent best fit for my listening tastes. I had previously sampled LCD-2's and found them a little lacking in 'sparkle' or 'air' for my tastes. The mids and highs on these are breathtaking... but I kept finding myself wanting for more bass when I listened to EDM (Which, admittedly, is mostly what I listen to..) Recently found my goldilocks cans in Focal Clear, so the Grado's are looking for a new home again. They are in excellent used condition. (Which, to me, means: there are some minor blemishes if you look closely at them, but they are working perfectly..) There are a lot of excellent reviews online that are well worth reading. Postage and insurance within Australia is included in the price. I have priced them at 100 less than what I paid (including postage), and hopefully this represents good value...😎 They currently sell new on A2A or Amazon Aus for $2499 Includes Grado extension cable and Grado 1/4 to 1/8 adapter (as per pics).

  5. You just can't beat flexible payment options.... 😎 Great work, Bill!
  6. Given the quality of the gear in your system, I would suggest that your current DAC might blow out your Kessel Run to well over 15 parsecs.
  7. https://caterinabarbieri.bandcamp.com/album/ecstatic-computation An Avant-Guard electronic composer who has not forsaken melody....
  8. Yes, you could do that... but an integrated amplifier would be simpler - a one box solution that would provide great two channel audio quality and handle inputs from a number of sources (including TV potentially) An integrated amp is made up of a power amp and a built in preamp.
  9. That receiver will drive the Emit M20's without any problems at all. Relax and enjoy!
  10. I'm tempted! Tried to PM but told you can't receive messages atm. (Mailbox too full?)
  11. Was just noodling around on eBay and discovered how expensive old laserdisc players are these days. Anybody know why? Is there some hidden potential in these ancient technologies? Or simply a case of it being an old collectable thing nowadays? As soon as I saw the prices, I started thinking 'Mmmm, maybe I should be on on the lookout for one of these...' (Damn social psychology). So hoping someone might have some insight into why these machines are so desirable. And, more importantly, should I be desiring one also. Are they the AV equivalent of turntables? thanks all....
