  2. I wasn't too sure I'd ever get around to doing this, putting up a few pics of my current listening room slash ex-home theatre, but now that I have some time on my hands I took a few pics that appear to be less blurry than usual so I figure I might as well put them up on show. It is not so much pictures of a system, more pictures of all sorts of gear in the same room that I watch TV and listen to music in. This is the inside of my cold room of audio, as seen from my listening position. The Halcro takes pride of place but it isn't in use ATM. The Exposure 2010S is sitting on top of a Krell KAV300i, next to those are a Burson PRE-160, a Consonance cd120 on top of it and a NuForce DDA-100 on top of it. Next to those sits my cd filing system (otherwise known as the floor), where I keep my favourites for handy access. The Osborn Eclipses with little JMax bookshelfs on top (I use the JMaxs to run in my integrated amps on), one LG 56 inch DLP rear projection TV (yes these things do still exist) minus my listening doona and a few Halcro components underneath (an EC800 disc player and a Halcro SSP100 for those who may wish to know) and consonance power boards. Behind the DM38 there sits my blue ray player, 2 integrated amps (it was a spare shelf and they had to go somewhere) and my 3 channel power amp for the centre and rears. The accoustic foam is stuck to the wall with magnetic strips so it is all adjustable and there are a few old posters on display. One of the reasons I've taken a long while to do this is that the HT room is where I keep my inner 17 year old, I found all my old posters a few years ago and decided to use them instead of chucking them out. You can also see the cold room fans, they probably do still work but it has been so long since they have been used I think even the on/off switch would need to be oiled prior to use. My interconnect storage zone. And moving further back The Stig and two healthy young lasses watch over my spare speaker wire and digital interconnect storage zone while Bridgette keeps an eye on the power and video cable hanging area. Also my off duty listening doona. This one did not turn out too well. My spare gear piles. From top to bottom on the left, bag of cables, wrapped up NAD 3120, Exposure 1010, Myryad MXI 2080, Dussun V6i and two little Perreaux SM60 monoblocks. On the right we have the Sonneteer Campion, burson PI-160 and a Halcro DM8. You can just make out a few items on the 'spare' shelves to the right as well. And to the left of the listening position Jessica takes care of all of my power requirements and air conditioning needs. And there is the listening position and surrounds. It is a bit strange to see the chair empty, it usually contains myself or one of two cats (who rather generously sacrifice a great deal of their free time to keep the place rodent and lizard free). You can see the insides of the shed through the door there. And that is the room that the members of my family refer to as "The Den". The coldroom construction has a few things going for it, one it is cool in summer and warm in winter but it reacts quickly to any changes from within (being an insulator room it contains heat rather well, hence the absolute NEED for air con). It does cut out alot of noise from outside but nowhere near as much as most people seem to think, it does sit at an ambient sound level below the reading on my cheapo SPL meter though, provided the air con is off. Also, since all of my gear is surrounded by a double layered faraday cage I just don't seem to get any background noise of note, mind you, I almost always hear a pop through the amp when turning the flouro light on and off. If anyone else out there is considering converting a cold room into a HT room I can recommend it, it works really well. Cheers!!
  3. I thought the Technical Brain TB-Zero/int deserved its own review thread. I’ll put a copy into my “Addicts Guide” thread just for the sake of completeness but the TB has a big enough rep that it deserves a little space to itself. The asking price alone demands it, $26K US is pretty decent ask for a piece of audio gear, so it had better be special, and it is. I’m not sure if there is a fixed RRP for Oz, if you wish to find out Technical Brain are distributed in Oz by Zensati Australia, I’m sure they could supply a price if asked. http://www.zensatiaustralia.com/ First up I was a little apprehensive when I bought the TB Z from Rob, I knew it was a good piece of gear of course but the price and the fact that listening to it gave me a similar feel to when I was trying to work out how to get the best out of the Halcro DM-38 made me wonder if I was doing something that would turn out to be a difficult piece of kit to nut out. As it turns out it was a little difficult but nowhere near as complicated as the Halcro turned out to be. Difficult is not necessarily a bad thing of course, you can learn a lot from a component that sounds a little different to everything else or behaves differently. They make you think and can send you in a different direction to the one you thought you were moving in. I suppose the old saying “necessity is the mother of invention” applies here, if you have something that you know can be special and it isn’t living up to your expectations then there will be a reason why, all you have to do is find it. So far in my TBZ journey I have found that the resolution and detail retrieval of the TBZ seems to have found the capabilities of my usual source and cables wanting. I initially tried the TBZ out with my YBA cd spinner and Aurealis RC1 interconnects with Redgum Audio Pipeline speaker cables feeding into my Lenehan S2R stand mounts. I then moved to Aurealis Dragon interconnects and found a nice improvement. A change from my YBA to a Densen B420 cd player was initially confusing, the Densen was not a good match with the TBZ. (Densen has more a tubey sound while the TBZ is unashamedly solid state, they did not mix well) The second biggest change so far was when I brought in my Sansui cd917XR cd player, that was a much better match. The biggest change was moving from single ended cables to balanced. Yes, I know, many people claim balanced are infinitely superior to RCA but until last week I was among the group who could not find any differences between the two with any gear I tried them both on. I realize they are good for noise rejection but I was of the opinion that my lounge room was not that electrically noisy that they were required just for that reason. I am forced to assume then that balanced cables only make a significant difference when a certain level has been reached, or when a design requires something of the signal input that only balanced can provide. This would be when a true balanced design meets a true balanced design. (again an assumption, but I think it's a pretty safe one) The TBZ only sports balanced inputs (which really should have been a serious hint) but us audio hobbyists can be pretty thick at times so it took me a while to remember that I was working with a component that was way above the level of the gear that I play with most of the time. Anyway, the outcome of that part of the story is the TBZ will wow with true balanced designs but perform only as well as many other amps if you use an RCA/balanced adaptor and sub in an unbalanced source. The Sansui 917 and the TBZ is an excellent match, I was truly taken aback with the level of detail retrieval on display and just as taken aback with the way it was portrayed. (the fact that the cd player is 25 years old and is not any of the usually claimed "audiophile approved DAC designs" is also worthy of note I would think) The top end is so extended you can really hear all those little metallic sounds, things like strings, triangles and even brass ringing out. These sounds that are usually not present, probably because they usually sound hard and bright, but on the TBZ they can be heard easily in all their metallic character without coming across as hard or bright. Or, explained another way, they are still just as hard and bright as they should be but they are somehow just not fatiguing to listen to. Some components have a current connection that can be used instead of the usual voltage connections (Audio GD, Krell, Halcro, etc). I have tried both the Audio GD and the Halcro gear using these current inputs and found that I preferred them to the voltage alternative every time. The difference on the TBZ between true balanced and normal RCA is a bit like that voltage to current difference I heard on the Halcro gear only about 5 times as pronounced. Going back is not an option. (well, OK, maybe for TV, but only until I could get a balanced DAC) So now that I’ve got the front end sorted what about the back? Were the Redgum speaker cables up to the task? I tried out my RG213U cables and found a drop in details but an increase in vocal sweetness, the vocal improvement was nice but once the level of detail has been experienced its loss cannot be suffered so the RG213U was not an option. Next up was a pair of Aurealis UP420s, I’m not quite sure if I prefer these to the Redgums, they do drop the detail level just a touch* (I think, not completely certain on that yet) but they seem to give a lower background noise floor. This works really well with slower paced music but doesn’t work quite as well with fast paced rock and metal. My apologies to those who thought they were going to get a full review right from the word go but this is as far as I've gotten. I plan to get further this weekend and I was going to wait until I was done before posting but I had to do something while my washing machine was running this morning so I thought I'd write up my path so far. Next steps will be to investigate different speaker cables (emails have been sent) and different speakers. I did try the TBZ over at Gremrocks place a while back and I found I really liked it on the ML3s but not so much on the ML2 Ltds. Different source, cables and room of course but that's life. The ML3s are now sold so the only options I have available to me are the ML2 Ltds and the KEF LS-50s. I do like the little KEFs but I think this time they are way out of their league so I'll give the ML2s a run and see what I can hear. *Most people would probably say that the Aurealis cables were a definite step up as they cut down on the brightness and the hardness of the sound. I am not most people and the TBZ is not most amplifiers, I think it may have enough of a hold on the frequencies in the top end that we can afford to let that “nasty” sound through without it getting nasty enough to annoy. So this isn’t your typical audio situation. Notice how the TBZ looks smaller than in many of its brochure pics? I always thought it would be bigger in person. One close up. I'm listening to some Aerosmith to warm things up this morning. cd case included for scale. See, not a particularly big amp. Now, if you'll excuse me, I believe I hear a beeping sound coming from the laundry.

  5. I have a musical fidelity KW 550 integrated amp. Will I be able to connect an accuphase c 2420 preamp to this amp. If done, will it improve the sound quality ?
  6. Hi This is actually a reply to another SN member's review of his Luxman 509X Int Amp. After replying, I thought it would be nice to share it with other SN members. Just my thoughts on the three Luxman amps I have owned over the last few years. I have been lucky enough in the last few years to have own the 550AX Class A as my first Luxman Int Amp, then due to a house move, needed more power, I got the 590AXII Class A, now living most of my time in Thailand, I am enjoying the 509X Class AB. I have also listened to the 507uX Class AB extensively. My gear from the 550AX to 590AXII and 509X haven't changed - Macbook > JRiver or Roon App > Chord Hugo TT DAC (Cable = Audioquest Diamond USB from Mac to Hugo TT) > every Luxman Amp (Cables = MIT SL8 RCA interconnects) > Spendor D7 SPEAKERS (Cables MIT SL 9). Quick rating of each amp: 1. 550AX Class A 20 watts pc. (Build - 8) - (Look - 10 - if you like the Retro style) - (Power/Drive - 8 - ONLY if you have a small room, efficient speakers & don't listen loud) - (Clarity/Details - 7) - (Quietness - 7) - (Soul/Emotion - 8) 2. 590AXII Class A 30 watts pc. (Build - 9) - (Look - 10 - if you like the Retro style) - (Power/Drive - 8 - ONLY if you have a small/medium room & efficient speakers) - (Clarity/Details - 8) - (Quietness - 8) - (Soul/Emotion - 9) 3. 509X Class AB 120 watts pc. (Build - 9.5) - (Look - 10 - if you like the Retro style) - (Power/Drive - 9.5 - Most room sizes and most speakers) - (Clarity/Details - 9.5) - (Quietness - 9.5) - (Soul/Emotion - 8) Quick summary of each amp: 1. 550AX Class A 20 watts pc. Fantastic Class A Int Amp. Low power, which leads to other limitations. Only buy if you don't have enough money to buy the 590AXII for more Power and Soul/Emotion. 2. 590AXII Class A 30 watts pc. Great Class A Int Amp. Still low power for larger rooms. BUT simply amazing tones that ooze Soul and Emotion especially in vocals and acoustic music. Luxman Class A Masterpiece. 3. 509X Class AB 120 watts pc. Stunning Class AB Int Amp. Tons of power and punch. So quiet, so much details, so clean, etc. Only negative against the 590AXII - doesn't have that Luxman Class A Soul and Emotion. Against Class AB Amp in this price range, the 509X has very few to no rivals. My "Ultimate" Amp: *A Luxman because of the build quality, features and acceptable price. Compared to nearest & equal rival, Accuphase, Luxmans are a bargain. *A Luxman Class A Int Amp for the tone, soul and emotions that they produce. *A Luxman Class A 60 watts pc Int Amp!! - maybe impossible and imagine the heat! Play more music! To the 2 SN members who bought my 550AX and 590AXII, hope you are enjoying them. Photos of 550AX, 590AXII and 509X
  7. A few weeks ago I purchased a YBA Heritage A100 integrated amp. That amp performed so well that I found myself wondering if it was worth picking up the associated Heritage CD100 player as well. So I wondered and I googled and I ordered based on what I found. I must say, I am glad I did. The YBA components compliment each other very well. There are already several pics of the A100 in my 'Addicts Guide' thread but none of the CD100 so let's correct that shall we? Not the greatest pic but it does show off those toggle switches. Once you've experienced toggle switches you won't go back to buttons, toggles are so much more tactile than buttons. And an internal shot, note the R core power supply. It may not be important to some but to me the fact that those opamps are mounted in a "press in" manner that enables me to roll them with ease is a very big thing. There will be some Burson discretes tested out in this puppy by the end of the month. Edit: I just noticed I left the cd in for this pic, I do recall the YBA doing a very nice rendition of the "Gregorian Masters of Chant" album. Great atmosphere on that album. I also seem to be wearing my uggies, what an overly informative picture. And the required 'action shot'. I have yet to get to the details of this review (however it is a long weekend for me so I should be done by Monday night) so this first post is more a preview. The YBA gear gives great atmosphere, almost as effectively as the Sansui AU5900 actually. Where the Sansui uses a whole heap of warmth to impart its atmosphere the YBA's utilize a fullness of tone to achieve a similar effect. It feels like there is more meat in the middle of each note with the YBA combo and that makes the bass sound more full (not deeper or faster but it feels like it has more staying power, you can really sink your teeth into it), lets the mid range fill out the soundstage and tonally fleshes out the top end as well (piano is an absolute delight through the YBAs). The toggle switches on the cd player really work for me, for some reason it is so much more satisfying to use a toggle switch than it is to just press a button. On a more practical note it also allows for two functions per switch, up for one and down for another so YBA can utilize all the usual functions without crowding what is otherwise a very clean looking face plate. The coax input on the back is a nice addition too, so the player can double as a single input DAC. The only thing I have found that displeases me about the YBA Heritage gear so far involves the functionality of the remote control. There is no 'punch through' function on anything, so if you have selected the cd player and you want to change the volume you have to select the amp button first or the volume button is inactive. Similarly if you want to change the track that is playing and you have just adjusted the volume then you have to select the cd player first, otherwise the track forward and back buttons are inactive. A 'punch through' function on the volume control would have been nice. I will say this for the remote though, it is extremely well balanced. I'm very impressed with the YBA Heritage gear and that is without any reference to the price. At two to two and a half K per component I would say they were a good buy but since they cost $1650 for the amp and $1299 for the cd player I would say they are a screaming bargain. (they are on special though, normal RRP is $2K for the amp and $1550 for the spinner, including postage, mine were purchased from A1 Future Shop)

  12. Item: Yamaha CD-S2100 SACD Player/DAC and A-S2100 Integrated Amplifier (Light Wood Finish) Location: Sydney Price: $1,950 for the CD-S2100 SACD Player / DAC $2,100 for the A-S2100 Integrated Amplifier Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: I want to try something else Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I am selling my CD-S and A-S2100 setup. Both these components are excellent in their own right. The CD-S2100 is both a very good SACD player and a standalone DAC. It takes Coax, Toslink and USB, where Yamaha has its own proprietary USB interface which I can’t fault, and as a standalone DAC its implementation is done really well. The A-S2100 amp has a lot of features, although the only one I use is the balanced connection. It has a full and warm sound, which is a characteristic described in many reviews. Although the wattage on the specs might seem low it does produce strong power and current. I’m driving a pair of Dynaudio Special 40’s with it, and it has really good control over the strong mids and bass Dynaudios are known for. Together the CD-S2100 & A-S2100 are a perfect match, and with the Dynaudios the sound is warm, rich, and clear. Both components are a joy to look at with precise machining and finish, and the timber sides are a really nice part of the design. For transparency, I purchased these from another member where the CD-S2100 and A-S2100 were new and factory sealed out of the box when I purchased them (see link for the ad below). The member I bought them from is the current owner of Eastwood Hifi in Sydney, which is an authorized Yamaha dealer. He got this gear as promotional collateral and he already had a good setup, so he didn’t need this equipment. I have the original invoices he gave me, where he said as extra reassurance he will also honor the warranty on both the SACD Player and Integrated Amplifier on top of the factory warranty. There is over 4 years of warranty left on both components. The condition of both the A-S2100 and CD-S2100 is perfect and looks new out of the box except for a very small mark on the edge of the side panel of the amp, however you must look very closely to see it. I'm selling these as this is one of those hobbies where the want to change things up seems to happen a lot, so I’m looking at trying something new. I’ve tried a lot of gear in the past including a setup with more than twice the (new rrp) price of this one, and the CD-S / A-S2100 combo gets very close to that. Link to previous ad: Pictures:
  13. Item: Cambridge Audio Azur 851A Location: Canberra Price: $1300 Retail $2500 Item Condition: As new Reason for selling: No longer needed, back to Pre and Power amps.

PM me if you are interested. Pictures:
  14. Item: Hegel H160 Integrated Amplifier Location: NE Melbourne 'burbs Price: $2900 ... price drop $2800 ... ..... now $2650 includes SNA donation Item Condition: very clean, no marks, excellent Reason for selling: Trying out separate pre & power amps ..... Need funds for the next DAC ! Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal + fees, COD Only Extra Info: I have had this amp for about 6 months or so, and I think it’s beauty. It is really versatile yet very simple to set up. It has plenty of digital inputs and a pretty nice in built DAC. It has a balanced and two SE analogue inputs including HT bypass. Ethernet & USB input as well. It’s easy-as for streaming via Airplay which was really convenient. Joint winner of HiFi+ product of the year in 2016, and Sound-Image award in the same year. It sounds very clean / clear & precise without sounding dry or harsh. It has more than reasonable level of grunt, rated ~ 150w / channel into 8ohms, 250w into 4 ohms. To say the remote is robust is an understatement. I have the original box, so shipping is not issue, if required at purchasers cost. Original retail was around $6,200, and it is currently on sale new for $4,400 at A2A.

  16. A question for all you Sansui-philes out there. If I was to chase a Sansui integrated amp to add to my demo list which amps should I look out for? There is an AU-555A on ebay at the moment, is that a good example of the brand or a bad one?

  18. HI all I recently purchased a Rega Elex R integrated amp. I am really happy with the sound but would like to experiment with a tube pre- or power amp. My question is does anyone know if I can: 1 - Add a tube power amp to the pre-amp output and use the Elex R as a pre-amp only 2 - Feed a tube pre-amp into one of the Line-in jacks and use the Elex R as a power amp only. If so does this bypass the Elex R pre-amp. I've added a photo below. Grateful for any advice.

  20. Item: Audia Flight FL Two Integrated Amplifier Location: Melbourne Price: $2850 (RRP was $7500) Item Condition: 9/10 (Near perfect but used) Reason for selling: Too much gear Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Amplifier is in excellent condition with remote and manual but no original box, approx 3 years old. Made in Italy. A great all round performer with exceptional musicality, drive capability, build quality and setup functions. Its 19Kg weight is indicative of a high current 100W @ 8 ohms and 180W @ 4 ohms. I'm the second owner, so able to pass on a bargain. Another FL Two is currently listed on eBay at $4799. Pictures:
  21. Item: Nad c372 Location: Melbourne, Altona Meadows Price: $450 Item Condition: good with very slight cosmetic blemishes Reason for selling: Have another amp this doesn't get much use Payment Method: Pickup Cash on pickup Paypal Extra Info: Here im selling my nad c372. Powerhouse of an amp with 150watts per channel. Works perfectly. I believe the previous owner has upgraded the power caps to Elna audio grade ones as they are notorious for failing in these units. Cosmetically presents well with a slight scratch on the front panel but it's very hard to see. Comes with remote which presents as mint. Also have original box. Pictures:
  22. Item: Line Magnetic LM-219IA Valve Amp and LM Location: Price: Both $4400 or separately; $3900 for LM-219IA and $700 for the LM-502 CA (DAC Sold) Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Need cash, and will be overseas from April till end of year. Also want to clear the decks to try something new after I return in 2019 Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Please note both of these are the 230volt version which have no issues in Melbourne where i get between 238-242volt. The LM-219IA amp was purchased from stereonet member @Stump in June 2017. It has the original line Magnetic 845 and 300B, stump replaced the pre 12AX7 tubes with Psvane (but also have the line magnetic tubes) This thing is a beast of an amp weighing in at 55kg, producing 28W per channel, it sits well above set class amp limitations. Unless your speakers have a horrible drop off in impedance this amp will have no issue driving speaker in the high 80's DB to quite loud levels. This sounds amazing with my CH2 Wyndham Audio speakers (which have been sitting as an EOI in the classifieds) Total tube hours are around the 250-300 mark including those from Stump. The DAC was bought late 2017 from another stereonet member and also 230V (this means import version not via Bill Mclean). It has the option of both solid state and valve (i prefer the valve). The build quality and the look of Line Magnetic is true industrial chic. I currently have the amp seated on an industrial trolley used for transport, i could also include that in the sale as it helps to maneuver the beast around. the LM-219IA comes with the original solid box the LM-502 CA does not have a box I prefer not to ship as it will be expensive.

  24. I am considering a new integrated amp or pre/power combo and been seeing a fair bit about Devialet. Any thoughts as to whether these will be future proof - so much high tech stuff loses manufacturer support - a good case in mind is my Meridian gear which is not really supported any more in that when it came out it promised future upgrade paths but these died or were never offered. Another question is future repairs - if the distributor disappears it becomes hard to get service ..so is a much simpler amp a better idea???
