  1. Item: Klipsch Reference Series RF-25 Floorstanding, RC-25 Centre & RB-15 Bookshelves Location: Aspendale (Vic) Price: $900 Negotiable. 3.5% of sale price will be donated to SNA. Item Condition: Very Good to Excellent. Small amount of vinyl wrap has lifted slightly on the front corners of the RF-25 floorstanding speakers (see photos). This is purely cosmetic and doesn’t impact the performance of these speakers and could be easily fixed with a little care. Reason for selling: Upgrading and need funds Payment Method: Paypal, Cash on Pickup Extra Info: These speakers have been used for both home theatre and music listening. Klipsch speakers are perfect for movies and music, particularly rock/pop style of music. These speakers are very efficient meaning they can be played loud without needing a high powered amplifier to drive them. All speaker cabinets are in great condition. There is a small amount of vinyl wrap that has lifted slightly on the front corners of the RF-25 floorstanding speakers (see photos). This is purely cosmetic and doesn’t impact the performance of these speakers and could be easily fixed with a little care. More importantly the speaker cones/drivers are in excellent condition. These speakers have been used in a small 2 bedroom unit so they have never been driven hard or used to their fullest potential. There are no marks/dents on the speaker cones as they have always been used with the speaker grills in place. The RF-25 floorstanding speaker comes with dual 6.5-inch (165mm) woofers offering great bass for their size. Comes with spiked and rubber feet to suit soft or hard surfaces. Can be bi-wired. The RC-25 centre speaker is front ported allowing it to be installed in a cabinet or flush up against a wall without loss of sound quality. Comes with an adjustable foot to allow the speaker to be tilted up or down so that it can be “aimed” to the listening area. The RB-15 bookshelf speakers have been used as the rear channels to form a 5.1 surround setup with the aforementioned speakers. The rear panel has both keyhole and threaded insert allowing them to be easily mounted to walls or attachment using wall/ceiling brackets. Would prefer to sell these speakers as a set since it would make an ideal home theatre starter package, only requiring a subwoofer of your choice to be added. However I will consider selling the components separately upon request. Inspections welcomed. Price Negotiable. 3.5% of sale price will be donated to StereoNet.

  3. Thanks for the vid link... looks like a lengthy review (45min approx). Will need to find time to sit/skim through this one 🙂 Previously I had Klipsch speakers front (RF-25), centre (RC-25) and rear (RB-15). I am currently in the process of replacing my front/centre channel with some Elac speakers. I am already stretching my budget so trying to decide whether I keep my current Klipsch RB-15 speakers for the rear surround for the meantime or to replace these now. I'm planning on selling the Klipsch speakers but deciding on whether to sell the front/centre/rear's as a set or to sell the front/centres now and keep the rear's for the moment and sell them at a later date. Decisions... decisions...
  4. I have recently replaced my main speakers and about to purchase the matching centre speaker. While in the process of replacing speakers I am also looking at the opportunity in replacing my rear surround speakers. I currently have a 5.1 surround setup which is in a small lounge/dining room. Currently for my rear surround speakers, I have been using a pair of (Klipsch) bookshelf speakers which have been placed directly behind the couch. The speakers have been positioned so that they are firing upwards. I am questioning whether I should keep the current rear setup, perhaps with smaller/discrete sized speakers or look at a different setup. Part of the problem is the "half wall" that is located behind the couch which forms the front entrance (see attached floor plan). One of the options that I am considering is installing in-ceiling speakers. However with the room setup, these would have to be installed almost directly above the couch rather then slightly behind as per "surround guidelines". Part of my concern is what the surround "soundstage" will actually sound like with the rear speakers located in the ceiling, particularly in a small room setup? Will the rear effects sound "too high"? Or should I look at other small surround speaker that can be positioned at more appropriate height? I have attached images of the floor plan and elevation plan to hopefully allow others better understand the room layout Floor Plan: Elevation View: Thanks for your thoughts, inputs, suggestions!
  5. What are you using Plex primarily for? Movies? Music? Had a quick play around with Plex but my initial thoughts that it was better suited for movies. Similarly tried Kodi which also seems to be predominately aimed towards movies rather than music. Anyone had much luck using Plex and/or Kodi with music... ideally with gaples playback and queuing of tracks?
  6. In regards to amplification I am using a Denon AVR4311 which I believe is rated at around 140w @ 8ohms (for the surround channels). The Denon is only used to drive the centre and surround speakers. The mains are driven by a Musical Fidelity integrated amp with Home Theater bypass.
  7. While doing some Googling I came across a post somewhere (not sure if it was here or elsewhere,) that the software library Oppo used didn't support a specific function call that permitted it to do gapless playback when called by UPnP players/controllers. Not sure of the exact implementation but I believe the function call is supposed to cache/buffer the start of the next track so that there is no gap between tracks. I somehow believe that if Oppo doesn't support this specific function call, then any app that depends on the renderer to do gapless play will not work with the Oppo. I don't know how Oppo managed to do gapless playback from the locally connected hard drive but I suspect they must've done some changes to the firmware to achieve this.
  8. Cool... didn't realise there were single stereo speakers available. Presumably they have adjustable tweeters to effectively "direct" the stereo image?
  9. Recently purchased the Elac FS 249.3 floorstanding speakers. I believe the matching centre speaker is the Elac CC 400. However due to my budget and size issues I might have to look at the Elac CC241.3 centre speaker instead. Ideally I would like to get Elac speakers for the rears however my budget was blown by getting the new floorstanders... I couldn't resist them!
  10. I am in the process of upgrading my speakers which are being using for music and movies (5.1 surround). I have replaced my front L/R main speakers and soon to get the associated centre speaker to keep the speaker "family" the same. Given the rear speakers are primarily used for effects, the understanding is that they don't necessarily have to be the same "family" sonically as the front/centre channel. My current rear speakers have been a set of small bookshelf speakers located directly behind the couch. However I would ideally like to sell these with the other speakers and use something a bit more discrete. My options are either to find a set of small discrete speakers to again locate behind the couch or look at budget ceiling mounted speakers. With a small room (about 2.5m from seating to tv) I am a bit concerned about ceiling mounting the rear speakers. Firstly the ceiling mounted speakers would have to fitted directly above the couch as I cannot mount the ceiling speakers behind the couch due to a wall - not sure whether this would reduce the rear effects being directly above? Secondly I'm wondering whether this would sound unusual with rear effects in the ceiling and mains at floor level in a small room? I am also wondering whether I am underestimating the role of the rear surround speakers and whether I should actually be investing in better quality surround speakers?
  11. The Oppo Media Controller App is a good starting point but needs a bit more work to make it more user friendly. Unfortunately with Oppo no longer making audio equipment, the associated app's are no longer being updated either. The latest version of the Media Controller App is about 5 years old now. Actually contacted the local distributor/support for Oppo to see whether they would make the source code available so that other keen developers to continue to improve the app. However it was a firm no!
  12. Hi ShellstaX. Thanks for the info! I have an Android phone and and iPad. Ideally I would like to have an app that I can use across both devices (just in case one device is being used by the kids). I have come across the Hi-Fi Cast app in the Google Play Store. Haven't tried it as yet as it says gapless playback is only supported via Chromecast and Google Home devices. Interesting point you make about gapless/transcoding via the Android device. For a few dollars it may be worth trying out the app.
  13. Recently when looking for new speakers, my listening requirement was to listen to the speakers both at loud volumes and at low subtle volumes. Most speakers will sound great when played loud (expect when distorted!) My old Klipsch speakers sounded awesome when the music was pumping but not so great at low listening levels. The important thing is to listen/audition to the way you like to listen to music, using music that you are familiar with. Who cares whether the sales person likes your taste in music or not.
  14. I connect my Oppo 105 to my Musical Fidelity integrated amp using the balanced outputs for my 2 channel listening. However for movie 5.1/7.1 listening I use the Oppo HDMI output to my a/v receiver and let the a/v receiver do its work in processing all the signal delays, eq etc. My a/v receiver is then connected to my integrated amp in "home theater" bypass mode to drive the L/R mains.
  15. From my experience, I would say look at the amp. Borrowed a friends valve amp and was impressed with the power and control it offered. That said, I was previously using my A/V processor to run my mains and surrounds. I've since gone with a Musical Fidelity integrated amp to drive my mains. They were close to the warm sounds that a valve amp provided but without the drawbacks. It made an improvement in the control of the bass which gave a few more years of enjoyable listening before finally upgrading the speakers.
