  1. Hi everyone just putting out feelers for whether anyone in Melbourne (I'm in Brunswick) wants to share out shipping costs for items from Parts Express in the US. I'm looking to get a few inexpensive drivers for a Lxmini clone that comes up to about 100usd but shipping will be about 50usd, so looking to minimise some of that cost. Thinking of splitting cost by shipping weight.
  2. Wow these forums are bad for my wallet don't even need them and I ordered 2. Up to usd15 each now but still a bargain!

    Hi-End Audio system

    Fantastic looking system. The speakers look like Osborn Interludes, but the webpage for it lists a different tweeter. The one pictured here almost looks like a Focal tweeter. Is that an upgrade? GLWTS. Wish I had the cash + space.
  4. Item: Focal-JMlab Chorus 714S floorstanders Location: Melbourne, Inner North Price: $600 Item Condition: 8/10 One of the tweeters has slight indentation as pictured. One scratch on the top and one on the side, and general wear on the edges but overall very nice condition. Lovely veneer. Reason for selling: Too many speakers Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Lovely pair of French speakers. Great dynamics and controlled bass. Had the tweeter replaced, cost me $150. Saw one of these go for $680 on eBay a few weeks ago so I think this is a fair price, but make an offer nonetheless. Pictures:

    Book shelf speakers

    Nice... Would have grabbed it if you were in Melbourne
  6. Item: Qinpu A1.0X integrated amp 100Wx2 Location: Melbourne, Inner North Price: $150 Item Condition: 8/10 Reason for selling: Not being used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Extra Info: I think you'll be hard pressed to find an integrated amp that does this much for so little. Will suit someone starting out or even just for a 2nd system. It's taking up storage space so would like to see it gone! Relisted now with price drop. "...you should be convinced that the A-1.0X is indeed one black stallion. It passed the ultimate test of low-impedance, low efficiency speakers and delivered command performance in a wide repertoire." http://6moons.com/audioreviews/qinpu/a10x_2.html Pictures:

    FS: NUFORCE DDA 100 Integrated + DAC

    Cracking little amp that takes up almost no room, I've got one and it is very solid. Do you still have the little remote that comes with it?
  8. Shoot me through a PM mate
  9. Item: NotePerfect Revolution RL62P Floorstanders Location: Melbourne, Inner North Price: $250 per pair Item Condition: cosmetic 7/10. Pretty good condition, scuffs and marks as expected with age. I could have done a better job wiping down the cabinets!! Had most of the woofers serviced with dust caps replaced that's why some don't match. Reason for selling: Too many speakers Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Extra Info: As I understand these were made by Mike Kontor in Melb back in the day. I got in touch with Mike and these are the specs according to him: Specs 4 ohms. 25wpc RMS needed, Max is 125...6dB crossover . 90cmH x 22cmW x 30cmD Cabinets are 19kg each, very solidly built. Retail was apparently $1300 at the time. Also have matching centre speaker for $50 if anyone is interested. There's also quite a bit of info from this thread about the speakers: Pictures:
  10. Item: Whatmough Tornado v1 subwoofer 10inch Location: Melbourne, inner north Price: SOLD Item Condition: VGC, one or two scratches. Working well, no humming or buzzing. Reason for selling: Not needed Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Badge says audiolab on the grille, asked Kee and apparently this was just branding for when Harvey Norman sold these. It is still the Tornado sub. Usable bass down to 20Hz. No spikes or cables included. Pictures:
  11. Any subbie that isn't a big black box gets a big thumbs up from me 👍
  12. I have found a sort of compromise (don't stone me please!!!!). I'm using a Cambridge Audio receiver, so a receiver that still focuses on ensuring good musical amplification of the music while doing all its whizzbang AV stuff. Definitely sounded a lot better than the receivers I was using before but perhaps not quite up to scratch for serious hi-fi. And I'm really suprised to hear that the sub does not make a difference. Are you sure it is working and turned on? Do you have the settings and crossover set on the receiver to output a LFE signal to the sub? I would have said the Ushers would definitely benefit from the integration of a sub so I can't imagine that a sub would make no difference.
