  1. Update, am now the owner of a Schiit Saga preamp and Schiit Vidar power amp, just ordered a pro-ject phono box s2 from the sales and will be purchasing a Topping d50s soon. Currently only way of playing anything is via 3.5mm headphone to rca from my macbook pro which isnt ideal.
  2. I found your other topic about finding an integrated amp for the LS50's, Curious if you still have the LS50's and what would your opinion/recommendation be on an integrated amp second hand under $2k for the LS50's ?
  3. Now considering the Vincent Pre and Power amps in the classifieds, too many choices.
  4. Oooof! Beautiful! Hard to go past the Silver, hopefully someone decides to sell theirs soon. How do you control your mac mini ? Do you have a screen hooked up or to the TV ? Im thinking i will convert my space macbook air laying around into a media server.
  5. They sound Great, only because I don't know any better right now, might be pushing myself into the rabbit hole by getting a decent stereo amp and forever chasing that perfect sound... In regards to DAC, I think I will most likely purchase a standalone DAC regardless if whatever amp I have has one onboard or not just like as you said, technology is moving so fast and DAC's are just constantly being updated. Temping but I fear I may have buyers regret the moment a Elex-r or an A-S1100 pops up in the classifieds and ill end up selling it Glad to hear its a go
  6. Currently have the LS50's connected to an Onkyo AVR my parents had laying around for now, Sorry everyone 😬 Still waiting for the right Amp to pop up in the used market, currently thinking something along of the lines of a yamaha A-S1100 (if for the VU meters and nothing else) or rega elex-r. Issue is right now when an amp comes up on market place, by the time i look at it and so some research on it and decide that its something i want, its sold already so id imagine soon I will become familiar enough that I can pull the trigger on an amp that I know is what i want the moment I see
  7. Thought id give a update on process i've made so far. Purchased a Pro jet debut carbon esprit off gumtree for $400 About to pick up a fair of KEF LS50's this weekend off classifieds. Time to work out what I want to power all this.
  8. Hi all, recently developed an interest with building a hifi system. I’m located in Newcastle so local shops are basically limited to one that I’m aware of, budget is around $3000 but flexible so I’ve been keeping an eye out on second hand gear. Will be either steaming from tidal, my computer or vinyl. I did get a chance to visit Apollo hifi in Sydney the other week and had a listen to the KEF q350’s and the ls50’s which I didn’t mind. Also listened to some Richter merlin 6’s which I found seemed like good value for their price. so far my short list in terms of gear
