  1. Good amps!! I am listening to the small brother SM70 in stereo mode while replying. I know of a HiFi guru using 4 of them to push MBL 101 with good results.
  2. Just to update: I have ordered a Dayton tweeter and woofer with similar size and specs. The result is OK without big difference between the left and right speaker. Thanks for your inputs above.
  3. Any reason why you say that? No matter what, I can only connect my REL subs via high level input to tube and power amps for my two 2 channels setup. I have a third REL sub for my HT setup via low level.
  4. It sounds better or more coherent with the entire high mid low spectrum with hi level input. REL sub bass has been used with amps without sub out long time ago. Anyway, I do not have any "music" amps with sub out. For my av amp, I of course will hook to another REL Q series sub woofer via RCA low level input.
  5. Item: Panasonic DMP-UB900 4K Blu-ray player Location: Mitcham, Melbourne Price: $300 Item Condition: Used with box, sticker marking on left front corner, normal wear and tear Reason for selling: Give up upgrading to 4K projector Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD Only Extra Info: Bought it in a Cash Converter store a while ago when hoping to upgrade to a 4K projector. However, I found out later in this forum that there is only 1 shop in Melbourne which got 4K discs for rent, and that shop is not close to me. Hence I give up the idea of upgrading my projector. There are other reasons why I do not want to keep it: 1) streaming apps are out-dated, 2) cannot connect it via Miracast with my mobile 3) HDMI Audio only out does not work with my Onkyo ex-flagship AV amp. I use coaxial output to AV amp, and analog RCA out to my music pre-amp. I play physical disc only once since I bought it, so better let go of it to someone who may use it more than me. Prefer local pickup though posting is possible with original box and packing. NO HDMI cable with it and a cheap stock power cable is included.

  6. I have used REL subs which are supposed to be used for 2 channel music before home theater days. The advantage of those "old" REL sub bass for music and newer models are the Hi level input of REL subs. No need to fiddle around with amp settings or outputs. Just connect the REL sub via speaker terminals and you will get decent low frequency for 2 channel music. Even if you buy the newer REL with both Hi and Lo level inputs, always use the Hi level for music or 2 channel. I use the REL Strata II with my Magnepan 1.2 with happy result. On the other hand, you are not happy with the bass of the JBL? You may try utilize it with different placement or room treatment before considering adding a sub.
  7. Thanks for your reply. There is no marking on both of tweeter and woofer. The speakers itself is made in USA with no hint of the origin f the parts.
  8. Thanks for your reply. I vaguely remember someone in net mentioned a DC28 unit for bigger brother 6.3, but not sure whether 5.0 and 6.3 are sung the same tweeter. I will try to explore more in that direction. Thx
  9. Any user here in Australia? I want to find replacement units for both tweeter and woofer. Not much information in the net and the company has closed down long time ago. TIA
  10. I have bought the same TV recently. I use the 3.5mm headphone output and a 3.5mm - RCA (Red/White) cable connected to a small SMSL amplifier. Speakers are DIY Pioneer TS-G1615 car speakers mounted to a speaker enclosure. Quality is quite decent to my ears.
  11. Excellent speakers!!My first love. Too bad I am so far away from them. The stands look perfect for the TC50
  12. Most high end dealers are in Central area but scattered in different buildings. For good and interesting secondhand stuff, I used to go to Hong Kong AV Consignment centre at Mong Kok close to Grand Castle. There is a branch at Central too. But I have not visited both shops for ages. Can find many interesting stuff there from time to time. Adelphi, if my memory serves me right, is short and big, while Grand Castle is tall and slim. Grand Castle got more shops I think. This is the link for the recent HK HiFi show introduced by a popular HK HiFi writer: Ignore the Cantonese soundtrack, you can see many brands are selling in Hong Kong
  13. Where you able to audition them in Australia? I don't think so. The company operates mainly with online store. I bought mine many years ago.
  14. I am from HK. Used to visit "Tim Chi" (that is how local HiFi fans call) often. I still keep the Soliloquy 5.0 bought there years ago. Good for exposing to so many brands of HiFi stuff in one building, but there are shops which are notorious with bluffing their products or arrogant towards customers. AVOID buying cables there as fake cables look very genuine these days. On the other hand, window shopping is great as there are so many brands there which are not available in Australian market.
