  1. Yeah wow... fair enough. Lesson learned! I guess the fact its not 4k compatible is a real minus these days. Oh well... I still love mine 😉 If you look further up this forum Chris explains the details a bit... I think its Op though.
  2. I very much apologise for my naivety in this.... Ive learned the lesson and have now PM'd Wood in this regard. Please dorgive me not knowing the way things are done... ive learned a fair and proper lesson.
  3. Hiya Wood, Im very interested in this amp. Im also relatively close to you at Avalon Beach so coming on a bit of a drive over to you is ok. Im wondering if this is your best price? Id be able to do the drive Tuesday arvo if we came to an understating :-)) Kind regards, Scott.
  4. I had an inkling this may be of interest to others :-))
  5. Well ive gone ahead and ordered the specially built for me unit from Chris! I can barely put into words how special it feels! Its gonna take a few weeks as he needs to order bits and pieces he normally doesnt use. Thanks you so very much for your extremely kind offer to loan me your Mini Fono in the meantime Dave! I have PM'd you in that regard 👍🏻👍🏻 I will keep this thread posted with any developments regarding my one-off special Stereo Coffee preamp as information becomes available 👊🏻👊🏻👍🏻👍🏻
  6. Before contacting Chris I also considered the Fono as a nice entry level preamp... and definately right now it would be at the top of my list if I hadnt heard of the StereoCoffee... but I find myself drawn to spending the extra dosh simply due to two things... first the obvious great reviews... but second and far more importantly Chris himself! First rule of selling is people buy from people they like. And I like Chris! I know beyond doubt he cares for my audio situation and believes in his product. Its a simple conclusion.
  7. I should say "salespersonship" as in my experience ladies are quite possibly more trusted and better at sales ;-))
  8. I will keep you posted lenticularis 🙂 This level of service from Chris is kinda unprecedented these days.. Makes me wanna build a company around pure customer service. So many shops are what I think of as stereo snobs. Pure customer service is something a robot can never do better than an actual person. Maybe proper salesmanship is one of the only jobs in the future that a robot cannot do.
  9. I seriously doubt if the reciever I bought for over 2 grand is now available for 50-250 now 😉 I have watched many classifieds and never even seen one for sale. But I do appreciate the fact that its phono stage is under par... and the advice youve given 👍🏻👍🏻 both the Vincent and NAD are definitely options I have looked at now... for solid state the NAD's are a bargain imho... similar to Rega and ProJect. However now im kinda sold on spending pretty much my whole budget on a StereoCoffee.
  10. Gday again lads and lassies, Youre absolutely right ihearmusic... but heres an update... Ive been in contact with Chris... and hes offered to build me one! A one off! This only happened yesterday and ive yet to hear a price but he and I have emailed a bit back and forth over the last few days about this. I must say he is one incredible guy! His level of involvement about my admittedly humble system and his input with advice has been astonishing. I am without a doubt going to get his one-off designed for me phono preamp. I cant imagine anyone with my kinda dosh to spend or even waa
  11. Now im a lil confused... stereo coffee seem to have a very desirable preamp... but tbh im finding it hard to justify spending the kind of bucks needed to simply upgrade from the one in my receiver... which to my ears sounds pretty good... nice balance, decent soundstage that extends much further out than the speakers themselves... a quality I highly prize. Im wondering if spending the money is not worth it. I kinda had my heart set on a decent and noticeable sonic upgrade... but 5-600 bucks buys alot of albums! I wonder where the money is better spent 😕
  12. Never heard of them Steve M... i'll check em out! Cheers!
  13. Gday Stereonet supporters and caregivers!, Im not new to hifi audio... but I am very new to modern analogue vinyl bits and pieces. I recently got back into vinyl...And loving it! with a Rega Planar 2 (with a Rega bias2 cart) connected straight to the phono input of my Yamaha RXV-2067. These are connected to a set of Cerwin-Vega E-710 speakers that are 3 way with a 10" woofer. I also have a VAF centre and Sub and Wharfdale rears... but those dont come into this question as this is about 2 channels only. My question relates simply to phono preamps... and then to speakers... but mo
  14. Wow! I know Collaroy quite well 🙂 I had a girlfriend from there in my late teens and Wicks surfshop was where I bought my first (and last) surfboard. Thats an awesome lil story 🙂 However... having done a fair bit of research Ive found many user of these that have had real issues with having the powered subwoofer die. Im sure yours do not have this issue but Im looking for a set of speakers I can use for years and years problem free completely. Im gonna have to withdraw my interest unfortunately. Im sorry mate, Scott
