  1. Item: Dynaudio Focus 220 MkI Floor Standing Speakers. Cherry colour (don't know why they call this cherry) Location: Wynnum West, Brisbane Price: $1700 Item Condition: Excellent. One or two minor nicks but nothing noticeable on front or sides of cabinets. One lug broken off grille but it’s an inside one so doesn’t affect attaching (has four outside ones and 1 inside – think these are replaceable anyway). Reason for selling: Was going to use for HT but idea abandoned due to lack of space Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Extra Info: These were a significant upgrade for me at the time from Orpheus Aurora 3.3's and B&W 603 S3's. I was astounded by the improvement. Great for someone looking to take the next hi-fi upgrade step or would be excellent HT fronts. These originally retailed for around $4.5k. Impedance 4ohms. Sensitivity around 87dB. Includes speaker spikes and grilles. I have boxes with packing but not the original ones. Pictures:
  2. Hi All, I'm currently building a system and have a pair of dynaudio dm 2/6 speakers, I was just wondering what would be a good amp to match these? I'm on a bit of a budget so the two I was considering was the Marantz PM6004 or the Rotel RA-10. Does anyone have any views on these or is there something else I should be looking at? Cheers
  3. Great Dynaudio Excite X12 bookshelf speakers in gorgeous Cherry finish. Complete with stands and 20 metres+ of cable each. Slight scratch on side of one of speakers (see photo) Pickup from Neutral Bay, NSW $1,100
  4. Item: Dynaudio Focus 160 standmount speakers in gloss black Condition: As new. Price: $1700 pickup or buyer pays shipping Reason for selling: This cuts deep, but I have to pay for my new C1s somehow. Details: The Focus 160 are part of Dynaudio's "upgraded" line of Focus speakers - new drivers, cabinets and crossovers saw definite improvements over the previous models (110 and 140). I can say without reservation that the 160's are much, much better than the 110's that I used to own. They're more honest compared to the older models which were quite warm and thick through the midrange. The 160's are my favorite bookshelf speaker (prior to owning the flagship C1's); they're fantastic speakers that want for nothing. They employ a new tweeter based on the famed Esotar2 and it shows - compared to the cheaper Excite X12's the 160's are much smoother and listenable without losing any energy. Very, very impressive. Bass has always been Dynaudio's forte and the 160's don't disappoint; they go lower and hit harder than any other bookshelf speakers I've heard. They genuinely surprise and shock when the levels rise... The speakers were imported from the UK as an ex-demo pair earlier this year. They will come packed in their original box, along with all accessories and the manual. RRP on these is currently $3200. Price is for pickup from Clayton or Southbank; postage within Australia should be about $50-60. Auditions are welcome, PM me with any questions.

  5. Hi all, looking forward to reading and contributing to forums and using classifieds. My current equipment mostly comprises Cyrus, Dynaudio, Denon. Oppo. Cheers, Huntsman
  6. Caught the Home Theatre bug again after hearing one of the best Home Theatre setups recently...... Wondering if anyone has heard the Simaudio MC-8 5 channel or Plinius Odeon 5 channel? Or can recommend any other suggestions for Home Theater amps or power amps for Home Theater? Thanks in advance.
  7. Item: Dynaudio Audience 52 (Cherry) with Dynaudio Stands Location: Sydney Price :$1400 Item Condition: Great condition, some tiny scratches on the bottom, but you'll never see them being on the stands. Reason for selling: No longer used. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: The stands have never been filled, so they are in perfect condition. I have a nad c352 and a nad cdp542 for sale too if you want a nice complete system with great sound character. If I could afford to keep them around for future use I would as I do love them and hope somebody can enjoy them as much as I did.
  8. Item: Dynaudio Excite X32 Floorstanding Speakers Location: Melbourne Price: $1400 $1300 Item Condition: Used (mint condition) Reason for selling: Upgrading to Focus series Payment Method: Cash, Bank Transfer, Can ship interstate Extra Info: Purchased new from Stereophonic 2 years ago. Comes with original packaging, original receipt, foam pugs and floor spikes. These are in as new condition with no scratches or dents. Well cared for in dedicated music room and run with quality Parasound Halo amp. see below link to reviews http://www.whathifi.com/Review/Dynaudio-Excite-X32/ http://www.hometheater.com/content/dynaudio-excite-speaker-system
  9. Item: Dynaudio Contour SCX Centre Speaker with Matching Stand Location: Brisbane, Qld Price: $1750 with Stand. $1500 without stand. Item Condition: 9/10, Excellent Reason for selling: No Longer used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Bank Deposit Extra Info: I am the second owner of this speaker and bought it off the original owner about 2 years ago. It is in perfect unmarked condition and comes with the optional (adjustable) Dynaudio "Centre Base2" Stand. The stand alone sold for $900 I believe. The CSX Centre speaker (rrp $4199) is significantly better than the standard Contour SC Centre (rep $2799). The next step up the Dynaudio range in the way of a centre is the $10k Confidence centre, so in my mind the CSX is the pick of the bunch (bang for buck wise) if you are looking for a centre speaker to match Dynaudio Foucs, Contour or Confidence front speakers. The SCX uses the Esotar tweeter which I believe is the same one used in the Dynaudio Confidence range. This centre speaker sounds superb. Voices are articulate and natural sounding through this centre and it really brought my home theatre experience to the next level. I apologise if I have any of the above RRPs wrong. I got them all from google - http://www.rio.com.au/brands/5/dynaudio/ I just wanted to give you an idea of where this speaker sits in the Dynaudio range. There are no marks, dings or dents on the speaker, and it is in perfect working order. There is a small mark on the back corner of the "Centre BAse2" stand which I have tried to show in the last pic. You can't see this mark unless you bend down behind the speaker and look carefully. I have the original box and manual and can post anywhere in australia at buyers cost and risk. Pictures:
  10. Item: Dynaudio Focus 110 standmount speakers Location: Heidelberg 3081 Price: Sold Item Condition: 9/10 Reason for selling: upgraded Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, or direct transfer + shipping Extra Info: bought from Stereophonic Docklands in July 2011, i have receipt and orginal box + manuals.

  11. Item: Dynaudio Excite X32 floorstanders in gloss piano black Location: Clayton, Melbourne Price: SOLD Item Condition: Mint Reason for selling: Something else has caught my eye. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Direct Deposit Extra Info: Bought new about a month ago, used for less than 10 hours. Not a single blemish on them. RRP for a new set in the gloss black finish is ~$3k. Stereophonic is selling an ex-demo set for $2.4k, which gives you an idea of the value on offer here. These will come in the original boxes with manual and accessories. These are priced for a very quick sale - absolutely no offers please.

  12. Item: Dynaudio Excite X22 centre speaker in gloss piano black Location: Clayton, Melbourne Price: SOLD Item Condition: Brand new in box Reason for selling: Not needed Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Direct Deposit Extra Info: The X22 is the dedicated centre speaker in Dynaudio's Excite series, and uses the midrange drivers from the 3-way X36 floorstanders. The speaker is brand new - I haven't even opened the box. These retail for ~$990 (extra for gloss black), so grab a bargain.

  13. So I purchased a new pair of Focus 160s from Douglas as a Christmas present to myself in 2011 and I've been thoroughly enjoying them since pairing them up with my Plinius Hautonga earlier this year. Now I've come across a pair of S1.4s selling for cheaper than what I paid for my 160s and I'm seriously considering upgrading. My question is, would the S1.4s be a step up from the brand new Focus 160 line, considering the 160 utilizing newer hardware? Also I'm unaware of how old these S1.4s are, would it be worth going from brand new pair of 160s to older speakers?
  14. Item: Dynaudio Focus 110 in maple Location: Clayton, Melbourne Price: $999 pickup or buyer pays postage Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: More speakers incoming, gotta move some on. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Direct Deposit Extra Info: The Focus 110's are typical Dynaudo - impressive bass with a nice smooth midrange and sparkly highs. Anyone who has owned or heard speakers from the Focus range will tell you that they have a warmer sound which is never fatiguing. I found the 110's to be smoother than my Excite X12's with a more extended treble response. Bass was much stronger too, thanks no doubt to the larger driver and enclosure. These are in very good condition and will come in their original box with manual and foam bungs.

  15. Item: Dynaudio Excite X12 in gloss black Location: Clayton, Melbourne Price: Withdrawn from sale Item Condition: Very good. Some very fine scratches in the gloss coating from being handled over time. Reason for selling: Replaced by Dynaudio Focus 110 Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Direct Deposit Extra Info: These are one of my favourite speakers; I'm sure I'm going to regret this sale. I've had them for over a year, and I believe I am the second owner. In terms of sound, these speakers are fantastic. Amazing bass from such small speakers, with a nice smooth midrange (typical Dynaudio) and sparkly highs. They really are a lot of fun. For a more detailed description, please see my review here: http://www.stereo.ne...-addicts-guide/ I'm selling because the Focus 110's that I got earlier this year improve on the X12's in almost every way (though only just, and at a price). The X12's will come in the original packaging with the manual and a copy of the receipt. They might even still be under warranty, but I'll confirm that tonight. Pics:
  16. Hello all, I would like to inform every one of the Sydney Audio Club’s upcoming meetings for anyone who may be interested in attending. Each month I will post a copy of our newsletter highlighting who will be presenting at our next gathering. See post below. All are welcome, so please post here for more info, or see our website for calender dates, www.sydneyaudioclub.org.au/ You don't need to know anyone to join us for an afternoon of fine music and sound. Hope to see you there. Potential Presenters: I’ve been a member of the Sydney Audio Club for over a year now and love it and have recently joined the committee in the role as Events Coordinator. This is a joint role with another committee member whose career background is in Pro Audio. Together we source and organise Home and Pro audio equipment from Distributors, Retailers, Direct to Market Companies, Representatives and our Members, to showcase their gear for the enjoyment of our members and guests at our monthly meetings held at Dence Park Creative Centre in Epping. The Sydney Audio Club offers companies an opportunity to present and demonstrate their equipment to the club. It could be a single piece of kit or an entire system, something new to market or an old favourite. Also we have recently updated our website to list our presenters over the last 12 months in the public area. Anyone interested in offering and presenting any gear at our future meetings, feel free to contact myself for further discussions. Meetings are on Sundays and openings are available from Feb 2013.
  17. The September 2012 meeting of the Sydney Audio Club sees us once again at Dence Park for an afternoon of fine music and sound and convivial company. Each month, the Sydney Audio Club presents the finest in high end audio systems for our members and guests. It's a bit like a private audio show once a month where you can hear and discuss equipment that you might not otherwise have the chance to audition. And you can bring along your own music to test the capabilities of the system or to just share with like-minded music lovers in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. This month we will have a complete system provided by Syntec International (refer to http://www.syntec.com.au). For over 35 years Syntec International has been the Australian and New Zealand distributor for some highly renowned and respected brands of audio equipment. Some of their brands include: Arcam, Bryston, Dynaudio, Lehmann, Manley, MIT, Neumann, Sennheiser and Tangent – to name a few. This month we will have a system comprising Dynaudio and Bryston. The electronics will be a Bryston combo of a 4B-SST power amp, BP26 pre-amp and CD player (please refer to http://www.syntec.com.au/home.php?cat=261). The 4B-SST is a pure dual mono design and offers 300 watts per channel into 8 ohms and 500 watts into 4 with over 1000 watts available in bridged mode. The speakers will be the Dynaudio C2 (please refer to http://www.dynaudio.com/int/home_loudspeaker_systems/confidence/confidence_c2.php). The C2 is a 1.5 meter tall floorstander. It has two Esotar tweeters and two mid/bass drivers with special Kapton voice coil formers that are perfectly integrated by the advanced crossover to yield a seamlessly balanced yet detailed sound and incredible sound staging. We will also have a Sugden Connoisseur BD-1 turntable, very recently refurbished by a club member. It’s definitely no Transrotor but it reportedly sounds pretty good. It has the Shure V15 Type 3 cartridge. The phono stage will be by Graham Slee. Sorry, no music server this month. For this meeting, both music sessions will be BYO. Members and guests are welcome to offer music to share with us all. So bring along your favourite music on CD and vinyl. All we ask is that the music and recordings be interesting. We'll ask you to tell us a little about the artist/recording before it is played. Tracks over 6 minutes will be faded out, to give everyone a fair go. Whether you are a novice or a seasoned veteran, you will have the opportunity to listen, learn and share your experiences with others of a similar mind. Members and Guests welcome – we are a very friendly club so you don't need to know anyone to join us for an afternoon of fine music and sound. We will welcome you at the door. Venue: Epping Creative Centre Address: 26 Stanley St, Epping Doors open 1pm Meeting starts at 2pm Best regards, Tom Waters President Sydney Audio Club www.sydneyaudioclub.org.au tomwaters@sydneyaudioclub.org.au This post is for and on behalf of Tom and the Sydney Audio Club
  18. Item: Dynaudio Excite X12 Location: Clayton, Melbourne Price: $900 pickup or buyer pays postage Item Condition: Very good. Some very fine scratches in the gloss coating from being handled over time. Reason for selling: EOI - Dynaudio Focus 110 incoming Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Direct Deposit Extra Info: I managed to secure a pair of Focus 110's from the UK at a very good price, and when they arrive (probably 3-4 weeks away) I will be comparing them to my existing speakers. If the Focus end up being better (which I expect they will), I'll be selling one of the other pairs - either these X12's or the ATC SCM7's (see my other ad). I thought I'd see if there was any interest in advnace, so that when the time comes (and if I decide to sell them) I can offload them quickly. In terms of sound, these speakers are fantastic. Amazing bass from such small speakers, with a nice smooth midrange (typical Dynaudio) and nice sparkly highs. They really are a lot of fun. I have the original packaging and a copy of the receipt. There's a chance that I will decide to keep these, but feel free to PM me if you're interested. Pics:
  19. Item: Dynaudio DM 2/7 (Rosewood) Location: Clayton, Melbourne Item Condition: Brand new - 2 weeks old Reason for selling: Upgraded to Excite X12s Price: SOLD Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Direct Deposit Extra Info: I bought these from RIO Sound & Vision as an upgrade from my Usher S520s. I'd only had them for a few days when the Excite X12s were put up for sale here and I jumped on them. The smaller Excites are better suited to my room & setup, so I'm moving the 2/7's on. They have fantastic bass response and a nice midrange, with a well-controlled top-end. The sound signature is on the warmer side, and they are quite good at lower volumes too which is a nice attribute imo. All original packaging and accessories are included, as is the invoice/receipt. Review: http://www.whathifi....dynaudio-dm-2-7 Pics: These are stock shots, I can provide my own if requested but the speakers are as new.
  20. Hi all, Ill try and make this quick Room - odd shape due to open living plan. Small / Medium size, tiled floor, pretty light and airy (Pretty much the worst kind of listening environment, however were only renting Want a system to use along side new Panasonic plasma. Want to be able to watch TV and blurays. More importantly i want to listen to music, jazz, classical, easy listening, nothing to heavy. I dont want more than a 2.1 setup. I'm having trouble figuring out which is the best way to power a system like im describing? I auditioned a pair of dynaudio dm 2/6 hooked up to a NAD receiver the T775 i think. I found the listening experience very appealing. However, i only wanted to spend $1700 on 2 decent fronts and something to power them. It seems like im paying for a whole lot features im not interested in if i was to buy i big 7.1 receiver. What are my best options?
