  1. Hi All, Simple question. New CD recorder coming and these are my 3 options. Can you please give opinions on best connection type for SQ and why? Cheers Jake
  2. G'day I currently have a Yamaha RXV1900 with a Panasonic Blueray Player. I have Chord Silver Stream Speaker Cable and a Chord Crimson VEE Interconnect. I'm thinking of adding a Cambridge Azur BD752 Player or the Yamaha CD-S1000. I love my blueray movies as I have recently purchased a Samsung 9000 Series Curved 65inch TV. I also love listening to my music which I do through my New VAF DC7 Speakers. I love the Yamaha RXV1900 and I'm not looking at changing just yet. So recommendations with my set up and my cable selection would be great. I need help and guidance in which way to proceed. 😊 Any help would be Awesome . Thanks Dougy
  3. Apologies if this is in the wrong section, or has been asked before (I did some searching but had no luck) but... I own a pair of Alessandro MS-1s which have developed some cable issues. Given that the sheathing is cracking in a couple of spots I'm intending to re-cable them (or have them recabled). I'm wondering if anyone can point me to either: a - A site or store that sells reasonably priced cable by the metre, as well as connectors, with reasonable shipping. or b - Somewhere/one that will re-cable them for an affordable price. I'm not concerned with specialty 'audiophile' cables (silver, ultra low oxygen etc.), reasonable gauge copper will do. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Chris
  4. I am looking to purchase or DIY a set of very light or feather weight interconnect RCA cable for my turntable to phono stage connection The reason I want a featherweight cables is that my connection point is direct to the tonearm body and I don't want added pressure from weight to be a pressure point to the connection point I have seen ribbon cables Shoestring DIY cables on the TNT forum Dual seperate wire DIY cables So I would like all suggestions from members brought forward so I can research and choose the idea / s best suited for my application brief
  5. Hi folks, I am looking for options on how to hide the various cables I have visible from a wall mounted TV. Unfortunately the TV is hanging off a brick wall so an 'in-wall' solution isn't really viable! I'm wondering if anyone has come up with a cosmetically appealing solution (you just know my better half is going to be critical of anything that could be considered 'dodgy'). Cheers, James
  6. Item: Nordost Blue Heaven USB (3M) Location: Canberra Price: $230 $185 + Postage Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: Too long for my current system. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Direct Deposit. Extra Info: There is something of a debate about whether USB cables make a difference to the sound of a system or not. I've personally found that they do, but that the difference is smaller than the difference you get from changing other cables. In my system the Nordost gave more precise leading edges and a little extra air. Probably not worth it (In my system) for the $460 RRP I paid for this cable, but good value at the above price. I'm only moving this along because I need a different length now. Original packaging included. Pictures:
  7. Item: QED Reference Audio Evolution Interconnects (1M pair) Location: Canberra Price: $110 + Postage Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: No longer needed, have moved to XLR. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Direct Deposit. Extra Info: I've been a fan of QED interconnects for quite a while. They do a lot right and very little wrong for a realistic amount of money. Build quality is very good, and value is excellent. The QED Reference Audio Evolution is probably the best value interconnect in QED's range, providing most of the performance of their top offering for less than half the price. Shielding is very good, so these are excellent in systems where power cables cannot be kept away from signal cables, or where switch mode power supplies are used. RRP in Australia is $249. Original packaging included. Review here: http://www.techradar...n-929601/review Pictures:
  8. Item: Various Cables - Power, Interconnects, Speaker, Digital, USB Location: Canberra Price: Priced Individually, see below. Item Condition: Various, see below. Reason for selling: No longer needed. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Direct Deposit _______________________________________________________ Item: QED Signature Audio S Interconnects (1M pair) -------------NOW SOLD Location: Canberra -------------------------------------------------------NOW SOLD Price: $300 Price Drop $240 + Postage -------------------------------NOW SOLD Item Condition: Very Good ----------------------------------------------NOW SOLD Reason for selling: No longer needed, have moved to XLR. -----NOW SOLD Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Direct Deposit. ---------NOW SOLD Extra Info: To mind mind these are some of the best value cables around. They sit at a price point where you are getting 90% of the performance of the very top-tier cables without getting close to the top-tier prices. These are the top cable that QED produce and have a good balance of detail and tonal richness. They are also very well shielded so work well in electrically noisy environments. RRP in Australia is around $600, but you can get them for $500 if you shop around. Original packaging included. Review here: http://www.techradar.com/au/reviews/audio-visual/hi-fi-and-audio/hi-fi-accessories/qed-signature-audio-s-606234/review _______________________________________________________ Item: QED Reference Audio Evolution Interconnects (1M pair) Location: Canberra Price: $110 Price Drop $90 + Postage Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: No longer needed, have moved to XLR. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Direct Deposit. Extra Info: While not quite at the level of the above QED Signature cables, they offer the same sort of sound (in a slightly lesser degree) for a lesser amount of dosh. They don't quite have the tonal richness of the Signature cables but are still excellent at their price point. Shielding is again very good, though not quite to the level of the Signatures. RRP in Australia is $249. Original packaging included. Review here: http://www.techradar.com/au/reviews/audio-visual/hi-fi-and-audio/hi-fi-accessories/qed-reference-audio-evolution-929601/review _______________________________________________________ Item: QED Signature Digital (1M) ---------------------------------------NOW SOLD Location: Canberra -------------------------------------------------------NOW SOLD Price: $100 + Postage ----------------------------------------------------NOW SOLD Item Condition: Very Good ---------------------------------------------NOW SOLD Reason for selling: No longer needed, have moved to AES. ---NOW SOLD Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Direct Deposit. -------NOW SOLD Extra Info: This is my pick of the under $500 digital cables. The cable that is closest to, sound-wise, is the Wireworld Starlight, but the QED offers more air and detail, as well as a more propulsive bass. This is QED's top digital cable, and while you can do better (Nordost Silver Shadow and above, Wireworld Silver Starlight and above in particular) you have to spend a great deal more to do it. RRP. was $199 (possibly $249) from memory. Original packaging included. _______________________________________________________ Item: Wyred 4 Sound P1 Ultra power cable (1m) --------------------NOW SOLD Location: Canberra ------------------------------------------------------NOW SOLD Price: $80 + Postage -----------------------------------------------------NOW SOLD Item Condition: Very Good ---------------------------------------------NOW SOLD Reason for selling: No longer needed, spare. ---------------------NOW SOLD Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Direct Deposit. -------NOW SOLD Extra Info: A good no-nonsense after market power cable with excellent build and good shielding. RRP in Australia is $140. Note that the plug is for the US so you will need either a power console that accepts US plugs, or an adaptor. I use three more of these in my system, but I don't need a fourth any longer. _______________________________________________________ Item: QED Qunex OT (1m) --------------------------------------------NOW SOLD Location: Canberra ----------------------------------------------------NOW SOLD Price: $30 + Postage --------------------------------------------------NOW SOLD Item Condition: Good ------------------------------------------------NOW SOLD Reason for selling: Prefer a copper connection. ---------------NOW SOLD Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Direct Deposit. ----NOW SOLD Extra Info: I'm not a fan of optical digital, but if you are a "digital is digital" kind of person, or need extreme electrical isolation, or don't have an option about the connection you use, then this might work for you. Originally purchased for $129, I believe you can now get something similar new (from QED) for about $59. Original packaging included. _______________________________________________________ Item: Nordost Blue Heaven USB (3M) Location: Canberra Price: $260 Price Drop $230 + Postage Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: Too long for my current system.

This is QED's entry level cable (actually it's been replaced and is better than their current entry level cables). Was $69 when new. _______________________________________________________ Item: Van den Hul "The Source" interconnects (0.75M approx pair) -------NOW SOLD Location: Canberra -----------------------------------------------------------------NOW SOLD Price: Make an offer ----------------------------------------------------------------NOW SOLD Item Condition: A bit rough. ------------------------------------------------------NOW SOLD Reason for selling: No longer used. --------------------------------------------NOW SOLD Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Direct Deposit. ------------------NOW SOLD Extra Info: I've had these for a long time, and they have been sitting in a box of spares for the last couple of years. I bought them second hand and haven't a clue what they are worth these days. Make me an offer (but don't rip me off please). EDIT: I just found a pair of these online. RRP was £110 when new, which is about $190 today and would have been more at the time. _______________________________________________________ Item: Van den Hul D352 Hybrid Speaker Cables (1M pair). ----NOW SOLD Location: Canberra ----------------------------------------------------NOW SOLD Price: $40.00 + Postage. ----------------------------------------------NOW SOLD Item Condition: Good (free dust included) ------------------------NOW SOLD Reason for selling: Too short for current system. ---------------NOW SOLD Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Direct Deposit. -----NOW SOLD Extra Info: These are an extremely musical set of cables. Enough detail, but also a wonderfully liquid midrange, and a bottom end that goes deep. I used these with a pair of mono-blocks, but they are too short for my current system. Would be good with mono-blocks, as patch leads from wall plates, or for a desktop system. Purchased for $60/m. I believe they are a silver/carbon hybrid.
  9. I had someone lay cable for the two zones of in ceiling speakers. It turns out that the spaker cables are either tangled or do not have enough slack so that I can comfortably pull my receiver out of the shelf. As you imagine this is a real pain. What options do I have for lengthening the speaker cables. The cable is reasonably high quality (not sure the brand but it looks quite good). The guy that liad it has suggested soldering on some additional cable to increase the amount of slack at the receiver end. I am a bit worried on quality degradation. Can anyone suggest any other options that would not compromise quality? are there high quality connectors or something? Help? Regards David
  10. Item: Brand new Naim Audio Power Line that has never been used. Measured at 1.9m. Location: Warrandyte however I travel to Moorabbin Airport regularly and am happy to meet somewhere Price: $800 Item Condition: New, in box, never used. Pictures will confirm no marks whatsoever, cable returns to it's curled up form when taken out of the box (was a pain trying to measure it!) and is essentially what you would receive from the shop! Reason for selling: Financial reasons Payment Method: Cash on pickup, bank transfer, pay pal Extra Info: I won this at a demo night last year and had plans to purchase another to use for my Yamaha HS80s however it sat on my shelf in it's case and has never been used. I now need to raise money and as a result, I will have to stick with regular power leads and sell this one. The retail price from the shop I won it from is $995 and considering I have never used it, I feel $800 is rather fair and a good bargain. I'm not that good at tech talk so specific details can be found at the naim website (http://www.naimaudio.com/hifi-products/power-line). Pictures:

  13. I have been thinking about experimenting with a different DIY design for some XLR cables. I have a large drum of 2-core shielded mic-cable at home, I used to use it for line level runs for live sound, and I have a fair bit left over. My idea is to use 3 x 2.5m lengths for each speaker (I have a pair of SGR audio CX4F active speakers), and connect BOTH cores of each runs to the +, - and GND of the XLR end, and also group the braided shield together (but not to the termination). My other idea is to cross cores in each run, so <+ GND>/<- +>/<GND -> and then have each matching core terminate together on the pins of the XLR end. Thoughts? I may just do this is an experiment anyway, but some feedback would be excellent. Also yes, I know these cables are not in the same 'league' as the speakers, I am still deciding if I even want to get ridiculous cables or not.
  14. Hi everyone, I am in the process of purchasing US power cables for all of my components (AudioQuest NRG-10 or NRG-100) which are available in either 15A and 20A versions. Most power cables supplied with Australian components seem to be rated for 10A. Can anyone guide me as to whether 15A or 20A US power cables are more suitable for Australian power? My electrician seems to think either would be fine, but it would be interesting to see if anyone has had negative experiences with either. Many Thanks, Alex

  16. Item: Naim NAC 112x / NAP 150x Location: Toowong Brisbane Australia Price: $1500 Item Condition: 8.5 / 10 Reason for selling: Feel like a change, *cough* upgrade *cough* Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only. Happy to post in original packaging or deliver in the Brisbane / Gold Coast / Sunshine Coast area. Extra Info: Purchased new from Caxton Audio about 3.5 years ago. Condition is as new with a few minor scuffs on top of the 150x from the 112x (barely noticeable) and located in a pet / smoke / child free home. Includes all original packaging and manuals, original Naim power cable and interconnect as well as 1 Chord 2 RCA to DIN cable and a custom 2 RCA to DIN cable for HT bypass. Not a lot of info on the web about this one as it existed only for a short time between the 112 and 122x pre-amps. Has that typical Naim PRAT sound but is slightly warmer then some of the other Naim amps. Imaging is quite good. Can be upgraded via either a Naim power supply (flatcap / hicap) or by a non-naim powersupply (e.g. TeddyCap) Item: Heed Questar MM phono stage and Q-PSU Location: Toowong Brisbane Australia Price: $450 Item Condition: 9.5 / 10 Reason for selling: Feel like a change, *cough* upgrade *cough* Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only. Happy to post in original packaging or deliver in the Brisbane / Gold Coast / Sunshine Coast area. Extra Info: Purchased new from Caxton Audio a little under 2 years ago. Condition is as new with all boxes. Questar has the wall wart plug as well, allowing for the Q-PSU to be used on other Heed items.

Happy to post or deliver in the Brisbane / Gold Coast / Sunshine Coast area. Extra Info: Again, purchased new from Caxton Audio about 3 years ago. These are the rev 2 version and are setup for bi-wiring with banana plugs on each end. Condition is as I purchased them however there is no packaging and a slight kink line in one teflon shields which doesn't effect sound at all. Extra Extra Info: will be travelling to Melbourne by car (via new castle and sydney) between boxing day and new years and would be happy to package these up into the car and arrange a delivery with potential buyers which are en route. Will also be looking to donate something from each sale to SNA
  17. So, how do you write a review of speaker cables? I've been contemplating that for a while now and I think we have to start with a few basics. 1. It seems to be generally agreed that thicker is better when it comes to speaker cables, I happen to be one of those that agree. 2. The human ear can hear sound from about 20Hz to about 20kHz, give or take maybe 10%. 3. There are many things that can make sounds that are outside this range of human hearing, tigers can roar down to 14Hz, dogs can hear dog whistles (18kHz to 22kHz, apparently), dolphins and whales use sound up to 160kHz in their native bisonar to detect and even stun fish but they use sound below 20Hz to communicate over vast distances, and some insects can hear sounds as high as 240kHz. Sound above 20kHz is refered to as Ultrasound, sound below 20Hz is called Infrasound. Us humans really lose out when it comes to sound frequency detection, it's a good thing we can see in colour because when it comes to hearing what is going on around us we really suck at it. A couple of interesting links for those who wish to know more. http://en.wikipedia....rasound#Insects It is not just used for the scanning of babies! http://en.wikipedia....wiki/Infrasound If anything, more interesting than ultrasound! Now that we have that out of the way, let's continue. I ordered a pair of Taranui speaker cables from Little Blue Penguin here on SNA on the strength of his IC's performance and build quality and they arrived last week. They look superb, very nicely finished with heat shrink sealing the connections and each banana plug protected with a piece of heat shrink as well. A very nice touch LBP! And thick! Think 2m of 20 cent piece thick mesh-wrapped cable with pencil thick ends that finish with a banana plug that is by far the thinest part of them. Now I thought that Greg Osborns Datalink cables were thick but these are much thicker. They look, and feel, like they could be used to tow armored vehicles, but that is getting a bit far from the point. I ordered biwired speaker cables because that is what the Osborn cables are and that is what the manufacturer recommends, so birwired it is. I was using QED 25th aniversary biwire speaker cable previously and I believe that cable to be silver plated copper (but I can't find anything on the net to confirm that). Anyway, swapping from the QED to the LBP made a huge difference to the sound of the Plessis S1 that I was using at the time. I noticed a massive reduction in the high end metallic sound (which I disliked about this amp, so this is a big tick in its favour) and a sort of smooth fullness applyed to the bass. But that wasn't all, there is a sonic effect in evidence that I can certainly notice but I'm not sure I can really hear. After the speaker wire swap the Plessis S1 went on to give an excellent performance on every disc I played, so on the strength of that I swapped amps back to my current favourite, the Myryad Z142. The Myryad sounded exactly as I remembered it, nice and fast in the mid range and very fluid in the upper bass and lower mids but now it has a subtly smooth mid bass and less emphasis in the highs. All of the high frequencies were still there, just a little softer and more delicate, present but not annoying. This may not be for everyone but in my case it is exactly what I was after, not that I knew that prior to hearing it of course. So there was a far less obvious effect when using the Myryad but it was still a very agreeable one. I have been using the Dussun V6i as a stand to place my other amps on so since it was right there it was next to be trialed with the LBP cables. I heard very similarly smooth bass to the Myryad, and less emphasis on the highs and it seemed surprisingly soft and delicate for an amp that at the same time sounds so powerful. So, my initial impressions are confirmed, I really do like the effect this cable has on my system, but why does it have an effect, how does it do it and what does that effect really sound like? I know people are asking these questions because they are the same ones I would want any reviewer to answer. I'll start by answering the last one first, what does that effect sound like? It sounds like additional harmonics added to the song, a sonic halo of naturalness that makes you realize that this particular performance of the song sounds more realistic than the last one you listened to. It doesn't sound like the performer is there in front of you but it does sound like you are in the studio listening to the recording session with the band on the other side of a window. Breathy female vocals are so much more airy and you could swear that you actually hear their lips move. The bass and upper mid frequencies seem to come from an area 3 times the size of the actual speaker and the way they bounce around the room seems to make the room, and thus the sound stage, feel 3 times larger as well. The sound fills the room and makes it feel warm, the music doesn't sound warm I want to make that clear hear, it feels warm. The warmth is on more of an emotional level rather than a physical one. This is the sort of sonic performance that makes you lay your head back on the headrest, close your eyes and just float in it while savouring every minute. If this gives you the impression that I like it, that is because I do, I really, really do! Now the first question, why does this sound/cable have an effect? I don't know if you have ever heard a Tiger roar, but I have and it is an experience and a half. Now I'm not talking about a recording, this was at the Singapore Zoo at the tender age of 13. That Tiger let loose an expression of just how annoyed he was with the world and my intestines and bladder responded by tightening reflexively just in case some of that annoyance was directed at me. The sound below 20Hz may not be able to be heard, but it can rather easily be felt and there is no denying that it can have an emotional impact. Those vibrations cut straight through skin and flesh and vibrate your very skeleton, in this case the emotional impact was instant fear because tigers are scary to young boys who have grown up in a land where the only animal you have to worry about eating you is a crocodile. But guitars and drums and most other instruments create sound outside of our hearing range too and that is part of what makes a live performance so involving, just because you can't hear it doesn't mean you can't feel it and this addition to the soundstage seems to add a little of that feeling thus making the performance that much more enjoyable. It just sounds more "real". And now for the hard question, how does it do it? I can only offer an opinion on this one but it occurs to me that if the "skin" effect occurs at high frequencies then maybe the low frequencies tend to travel deeper in the wire, if that is the case then thicker wire means a more emotive bass performance. Just an opinion, and I know it doesn't really gell with reality since cds only carry sound from 20Hz to 20kHz. I could claim that maybe it is an effect of the transistors but I know that the music signal goes through high and low pass filters to cut out noise so that won't be it either. So I can't really explain the how, but I can say that the effect is real and I am absolutely loving it! Well done LBP, well done indeed! And a quick edit to add a pic.
  18. Item: CHORD Indigo Plus, 1.5m pair RCA Interconnects ++ BRAND NEW ++ Location: Sydney Price: $1299 Item Condition: Brand NEW Reason for selling: Bought for a second system, which for now is on hold Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Described by What HIFI? as "Dazzling clarity across the entire frequency range". "The Chord Indigo Plus is a truly revealing cable that sets new standards for signal transmission across an extremely wide bandwidth". Was purchased new, 10 m ago for a second system, which is for now on hold. RRP for a 1.5m length is $2,500, so this is a bargain basement price for what could well be, your ultimate cable upgrade. http://store.lifestylestore.com.au/products/home-audio/accessories/cables/audio-interconnects/signature-rca.html Details This cable can dramatically improve the sound of your system. Almost any CD player, phono stage or pre/power amplifier combination willl benefit enormously. The shielding system is the most complex we have used, resulting in a huge reduction of low-level noise. The sound is completely transparent and seriously dynamic, but it is the way all of these abilities are brought together that makes the Indigo Plus such a superb cable. The Indigo Plus will not only amaze you with the sheer amount of information it can carry, it will present it to you in a beautifully coherent and involving manner. What is it? The Signature was Chord's top of the range interconnect until the release of the Indigo. Chord know how important shielding is to audio cables and the Signature had one of the most advanced shielding systems available. The most striking feature of the Chord Indigo Plus is the unique vibration damping, precision machined acrylic plug surrounds. That something seemingly simple as a plug surround can have such a profound effect on the overall performance of the cable it is fitted to is genuinely surprising. By damping vibration and resonance, the acrylic plug surround lowers the noise floor of the system to which it is fitted. Could well be your ultimate Christmas upgrade! Again, this retails for $2,500, is brand new, in box, has never been used Collect from 2093 or will express post Australia wide for wide $20.00. Pictures:
  19. Item full name and model etc. - Numerous Cables - collected over the years - Everything is AT LEAST 50% off retail and ranges in age. Most have had little use. Please keep in mind that all cables were bought in Australia from reputable dealers. I'm a tweaker what can I say - a tweaker who needs to buy that house! So after another sort through my boxes I've found another bunch of cables! Mostly power cables but some nice purist balanced cables there too. This is the last load of mainly my interconnect cables - The Harmonic Tech cables are brand new and come with packaging etc. I bought these only months ago to match my Harmonic Tech power cables I've loved for years. Do doubt about it - Harmonic Tech are some of the best cables for the money around; read the reviews for yourself 1. 1 x 1m Harmonic Technology Magic Link II Balanced Interconnecteds 2 XLR to 2 XLR - was $1500 here - $500 - http://www.harmonict...c-link-two.html 2. 1 x 2m Harmonic Technology Magic Link II Balanced Interconnecteds 2 XLR to 2 XLR - was $2000 here - $700 - http://www.harmonict...c-link-two.html 3. 1 x 1m pair Purist Audio Balanced Cable - Aqueous 20th Anniversary - (almost their top cable) - was $1500 here - $550 - http://www.positive-...pad_aqueous.htm 4. 2 x Analysis Plus Silver Oval XLR splitter - 1 female XLR to 2 Male XLR - $300 each (these are $800 each new 5 months old). http://www.analysis-plus.com/ 5. 1 x Gryphon Guideline Reference Interconnect 1.5m - 2 x XLR female to 2 RCA - $1100 (these are $3,200 retail) http://www.gryphon-a...ce-interconnect 6. 1 x Gryphon Guideline Reference Interconnect 1m - 2 x XLR to 2 XLR - $900 (these are $2800 retail) http://www.gryphon-a...ce-interconnect (HOT PRICE)!!!!!!!! - must sell - new in box - very sexy! 7. 1 x Chord component video cable 1.5m 3 RCA to 3 RCA - $100 (these were $200 here) http://store.lifesty...nent-video.html 8. 1 x Chord Component Video 10m - 3 RCA to 3 RCA - $150 (these are $470 new) http://store.lifesty...onent-3rca3-10. 9. 1 x Cawsey DOM AC power cable 2m AUS plug to IEC - $350 (this retailed for $700) - picture and website to come. - one left!!! * Location Sydney Australia * Item condition description: Varies - any questions please ask. * Reason for selling buying a house!

It's going to be one EMPTY house but heck it's a house none the less. All of the above cables are extremely well cared for and are like new because most of the time I just buy the cable to try it out. It's a costly experience but like mentioned in other sections of this forum. Hi-Fi store owners are not the best with loans, especially cables! So here's a collection of cables that range from the cheap to the reference level. Some have quite specific tasks but I'm sure on this forum unlike many others - there would be people on here looking for just this very thing! All have passed my critical ears and I'm happy to ship anywhere in Australia - however you're going to have to pay for shipping! I appreciate all those that have questions; I'll do my best to answer them so send me your questions no matter how strange. Attached Thumbnails
  20. Item full name and model etc. - Numerous Cables - collected over the years - Everything is AT LEAST 50% off retail and ranges in age. Most have had little use.
