  1. Hi all, In the market for a Rega Cursa. Let me know if anyone has one they'd be willing to part with. Located Melbourne, VIC.
  2. Further information: Hi all, Selling my Vandersteen 1C loudspeakers. Unfortunately, after trying them out, these lovely speakers are neither suitable for my lounge, amplifier and music taste, so they have to go. I have had one of the tweeters repaired professionally by Boyd at Total Recoil in Thornbury (on the advice of Carlton Audio Visual) after damage occurred during shipping when I purchased them off this forum. The only Vandersteen service centre in Australia is Caxton in Brisbane, and I did not want to risk further damage shipping them return. The s
  3. Further information: Hi all, Selling a pair of Vandersteen 1Cs that I have owned for approximately a month now. Unfortunately, these speakers are not suitable for my music or tastes – I favour a much heavier and bass biased sound as it suits the music I listen to best. Please refer to this thread, where it is ultimately concluded that my ears are the issue, not the speakers: https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/318310-what-have-i-done-wrong-vandersteen-1cs-sounding-awful/page/5 Some very minor cosmetic damage occurred in shipping when I purchased the units, and one of the twe
  4. Further information: Hi all, Selling my Moon by Simaudio 250i (i-1). Unit is in excellent condition and sounds superb, with a couple of minuscule marks on the front panel as shown in the photos. Selling as I am aiming to move onto pre/power amplification. Unit will come in it's original box and with the remote. Thanks for looking Photos: PLEASE READ If you are advertising multiple items, you must post one bulk price only, or post seperate ads for each item If you include any reference to pricing whatsoever in this section (excluding RRP), your ad will no
  5. Thanks for the comment. There is a "C" marking on the end of the serial number, which you can see on the original sale post by the previous owner here: https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/315285-sold-fs-vandersteen-1c-speakers/?tab=comments#comment-4564612
  6. Hopefully my experience is of benefit to someone else on the forums! It has certainly been a little tumultuous, but ultimately well worth it I think
  7. While I can't see myself paying for a service such as Roon (I'm already trialling tidal currently), I will admit that this is a damn cool feature. I could probably use the trial for testing in the future... Thanks!

  9. That's a fair point, and I wouldn't know. This thread will be linked in the for sale post for full transparency when I get around to making it in a week or so All I can conclude is that the level of bass was only marginally worse than the Richard Allen's I listened to, which had the same driver albeit with the surrounds recently replaced. It would be folly to think there have been no changes to the sound of the speakers as they have aged, but after having done a direct comparison between original vs refurbed drivers, I think they're in a more than saleable condition – otherwise the
  10. Hi all, Took my system into the repair shop today to compare a number of amps with mine, as well to compare my speakers with some Richard Allen bookshelf speakers he had, which also had Vifa 8" drivers with the surrounds replaced. Direct comparison between my speakers and his revealed: - a small, but none the less existent difference in bass, in favour of the Richard Allen's. Still not satisfactory for my tastes however - all other amps apart from my Moon (70s pioneer receiver, some luxman unit and the Marantz PM-54) did not have the harsh highs I have been experiencing. The Mo
  11. I assume this means aim for speakers with a bass hump in the frequency response? Still learning
  12. Largely the conclusion I've reached, however I'm still surprised by just how large the differences between my expectations and the product were – I mean I was shocked enough to warrant the creation of a troubleshooting thread. I guess I'll sell them and move on to a more efficient loudspeaker better suited to my tastes. I'd like to thank all for your assistance once again – it has been invaluable
  13. It appears I liked the sound with some EQ adjustments – something I can't do with my current amp.
  14. Not that I've found, and boy have I done some walking
  15. Certainly appears to be the case. I may look at substituting them for more appropriate loudspeakers given what I now know Thanks once again to all for commenting and shedding some light on the issue
