  1. I have the same amp as you and quite enjoy it. I rotate three sets of speakers through it and find it very pleasant. I also use a bottom of the barrel kenwood turntable occasionally and find the phono stage to be very capable. Are you pleased with the phono stage of your amp ?

    Thanks cambam but I can see the external plate amplifier being a little bit of an issue with trying to keep things compact and tidy. I would prefer a one box solution. Appreciate your offer though

    Item: Price Range: <$400 ish Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: Looking for an honest subwoofer to assist with HT duties and a little music with a maximum height 415 mm to sit in a designated area set aside by the wife. Apparently she has already done the sub crawl and has concluded that the best place for the unit would be under the coffee table next to the pot plant and the Kane pillows (hence 415mm high ). Please pm with some photos. Cheers Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible. (You can now delete this text).

  6. I have similar tastes in electronic music and I reserve this genre for when I’m feeling festive or want to get the blood pumping and don’t try and tick any audiophile boxes in the process because quite frankly there arnt many to be ticked. I have dynaudio dm2/8’s and they are very thirsty. I have them paired with an emotiva power amp basx a-300 (150w8ohm and 300w4ohm)that cost well under 1k new and they boogie. Not the most accurate system by any stretch ( I have another for that ). I also aspire to trying a valve amp some day but it won’t be to play electro on thirsty dynaudios but rath
  7. If I ever had to explain to the wife that we needed to spend 13k on active speakers I would bring the super wax minis into the conversation very quickly. Not sure if this is the appropriate thread snoopy but I would be delighted to hear from anyone that has experienced them.
  8. I have a confession ! I sold white van speakers for a day. I responded to a “part-time” sales role when I was at uni a long time ago and subsequently passed the phone interview and was asked to come to a factory in braeside for my first day. I was greeted by a man with a heavy Nordic accent and was told that I would ride shotgun with a decorated salesperson who was sporting a mullet. So we loaded a van and I jumped in the front seat oblivious to what lay ahead..... First set of traffic lights the window went down and my guide swung into action. My jaw dropped and I want
  9. Its speakers that look as good this that keep me so heavily invested in this hobby.
  10. Thanks once again guys. I guess I feel more confident in trying an external dac of the gieseler type. Given how quickly they sell in the classifieds I must be on my toes if I wish to acquire swiftly.
  11. Thats a great question ! Maybe I initially should have asked if any major improvements can be had with an external dac before just assuming. Maybe I’m just too curious but it has been suggested to me by other experienced members of this forum that an external dac will take the bluesound to the next level. I’m curious to see if that next level exists. Maybe my system is not transparent enough to hear a difference and I’m happy for someone to suggest that I should get a real amp or change my speakers. If it’s a different flavour then I’m not interested because I only like vanilla. So ......it’s
  12. Ladies and Gents. I’m looking to compliment my bluesound node 2i with an external dac. I am quite pleased with its offerings thus far but am looking at taking the next step. This will be my first dac to accompany my first streamer that is feeding a vintage jvc ja-s71 and a pair of living audio speakers. I’m happy with my components thus far but am seeking to upgrade my digital source. I have heard the gieseler dacs are very capable and have been waiting patiently for one to pop-up in the classifieds but they don’t last long do they ! Am I on the right track with these offerings or can simil
  13. One of these days I think I will actually go a step further and pull the trigger on one of these “single deals” ?‍♂️
  14. So I’m guessing this speaker has just become a must buy at this price.
