  1. I fixed this with my 2 REL’s by running earth cable back to earthing pin on my preamp.
  2. I use Bryston DAC with my N10. I think someone has one for sale on SN site at very attractive price?
  3. I ended up getting rid of the hum by earthing from subs to ground pin on my preamp
  4. Sorry Ugly, I meant sold to The Blues, subject to posting quote.
  5. Sold to Ugly pending quote for postage.
  6. Item: Record Doctor vinyl record cleaner Location: Melbourne 3106 Price: $200 Item condition: excellent, having had little use. Reason for selling: they told me it was noisy...and they were right, so decided to upgrade Payment method: Pick-up - cash, EFT transfer, COD only. Extra info: Comes with original packing, brush and cleaning fluid (70% full).
  7. My experience was positioning my two REL’s ‘by the book’ - that is facing towards listener just didn’t work Rotating them got me the best result. I now have one sub forward facing and one 80-degrees to listening position. Go by your ears🤙
  8. Looks like a typo to me. This article then goes on to talk about the 3.7i, not 30.7i.
  9. Does it come with a bag of spare fuses?[emoji6]
  10. For me, one of the great things about entering the world of magneplaner ownership was how it solved/resolved the whole dilemma of stereo speaker purchase and cognitive dissonance that is often caused. I bought my first pair of Maggie 111a’s 30-years ago (or more[emoji848]). Thoroughly enchanted with their sound, when time came to upgrade, I simply purchased the new model - no audition was required. My thinking was (is), if you love the Maggie sound, then the new model is going to deliver more of the same...only better! So my upgrades have been done without even auditioning. I now run 20.7’s, and if my finances (and listening room) ever stretch to 30.7’s, then I would buy these the same way. I do audition other types of speakers from time to time just to see what is happening in the market. Happy in my Maggie ecosystem [emoji846] Cheers
  11. I’m running 20.7’s with Rel subs, Templestowe Melbourne if you’re interested in having a listen.
  12. This is gobsmackingly dumb behaviour by both brand owners. I think the word within the hifi community will be “weigh up the risks before getting involved with either of these brands”.
  13. Time to go to ACCC. The product must perform in home as demonstrated. Take them to ACCC!
  14. It really is time for Bryston to get serious and distribute through a HiFi company, not a bloody software company- a la Busisoft. To muck customers around like this is just unbelievable in a competitive market. Bryston make great products, but they seem to be controlled by engineering boffins who really are on a parallel universe when it comes to customer support and satisfaction. And just to confirm-I am a Bryston customer running Bryston gear...but boy-oh-boy to hear another story like my experience proves they are slow learners.
  15. Just to comment on the “bench-tested” replacement option - your problem will be if the store doesn’t experience the same voltage spikes the problem will only manifest itself when you use the replacement in your environment. I went through this having ‘loaned’ my preamp back to Addicted who could not replicate the fault. Upon bringing the preamp home it blew a fuse within 24-hours. Bryston make some lovely products (I run pre, power and dac Bryston), but dicking about with Busisoft ain’t gonna pay dividends. Tell them to fix or refund!
