  1. interested in freya and 1 x vidar if keen to split.
  2. Item: Emotiva BAS-X A-150 power amplifier Location: Sydney Price: $450 Item Condition: Used 2 months old Reason for selling: changed amplifier Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Just over a month old. bought on the 20/05/19. but only had a few hours of use. Changed my mind and got schiit vidar to match my preamp and dac. Bought from Apollo hifi in Marrickville for $575 will sell for $450 from the website "The BasX A-150 delivers 75 watts RMS per channel at less than 0.1% THD into 8 ohms; THD+N of less than 0.02%; and a signal to noise ratio of 120 dB referenced to full power. This makes the BasX A-150 the ideal amplifier to serve as the foundation of a great sounding small stereo system." See product details below https://www.apollohifi.com.au/emotiva-a-150-stereo-power-amplifier.html?gclid=Cj0KCQjwoInnBRDDARIsANBVyAQBgBKOGmRehMan9C_2O33L3sXs0Fdek5Xqli1KkRiND0QRLgzF1pgaAjr2EALw_wcB See review in link below https://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/emotiva-a-150-basx-power-amplifier/ Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  3. Hey mate did you ever fix this issue? I'm getting loud hum with only one vidar with saga pre.
  4. OP here, So I listened to some of your advice to let the speakers run in, reposition my speakers. You guys will probably laugh but I was using an old Crestron DMPS3-300 a corporate AV presentation switcher as a preamp I had it from work. I didn't want to admit I was using that. I got a new schiit saga preamp to replace it. And some decent Interconnects. This is my system so far iMac> Tidal > Audirvana>Schiit Modi 3> Schiit Saga> Emotiva BasX A-150 > Elac debut B6.2. So far I'm really enjoying this setup. I feel happier with my purchase. That feeling of regret has faded alot. I can listen to these speakers for longer sessions compared to my previous speakers which where alot brighter. The saga added a little warmth to sound which I love. This is my first proper hifi stereo system. I am tempted to upgrade to a schiit vidar amp or Aegir if someone can recommend if the Aegir is enough to power to elacs. I have every on a kallax unit so those amps would fit nicely and match. I just want to say thank you for the advice you guys gave. I'm glad I didn't sell my gear straight away. I got some pretty lowball offers. Cheers guys, OP
  5. Thanks for your input guys, someone's made an offer on the amp. I'm ready to spend around 1000 for a new amp. What amp do think will let speakers sing in that price range ? Or should I not expect too much from that price range.
  6. This is on point. I did give my new speakers more chance and tried with different music. I do like them very much. But exactly what you said. The return on the dollars spent is not there. As I did underate the speakers I had already as they were "old". Thanks for your comments. I don't feel as bad anymore.
  7. I would say there's more colour. I'm going from active speakers to having seperate amp. But I'll give it another try cheers mate.
  8. My old ones are front ported as well. I've got a decent amount of space from wall. About half a metre. On stand mount about ear height. A full 2 metres apart. And my room is quite full so there's not really any reflections. It's not that they sound bad in my room. They sound really good. Its the fact they do not sound better or worse than my old speakers. Makes me question what did I spend $1250 on....
  9. Yeah that's probably it. I probably also have too high expectations of gear because of reviews. Any I'll set up thegear again and give it more of a chance to break in. Thanks guys
  10. Thanks mate, I guessed I rushed this decision and will need more research next time. Thanks for your input frank
  11. How do you tell if the amplifier is not adequate to drive the speakers? What should I be listening for?
