  3. Item: Paradigm Seismic 110 Subwoofer Location: Inner West, Sydney Price: $1700 Item Condition: Excellent (Mint) Reason for selling: NLR - selling on behalf of family member Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Paradigm Seismic 110 Subwoofer purchased in April this year from a Sydney retailer. The sub is in mint condition as can be seen from the photos. The Sesimic 110 sub is an absolute beast. The small footprint can fool people but this thing can get very low and has amazing speed. It is a fantastic sub to use with a 2-channel music system due to its incredible agility and also perfectly suited to movies/home theatre duties as well, especially in small/medium sized rooms. The compact footprint also makes it great for dual sub setups. Significant saving from RRP on a sub that is only a few months old. It is also still under warranty.

  6. Before I get started, this is not a sale post. Also if this post needs to be moved, go ahead, not sure exactly where to post. So my father has a set of paradigm s8's and the matching c3 center channel in piano black. He looking at the possibility of putting them up for sale. They are in immaculate condition, with extremely low usage, around 20-30 hours, center channel has even less run time, maybe 10 hours if that. They get used around once a month (blow the cobwebs out, and to remind the neighbours who lives there). He's always been into hifi, always looks after his gear and is in a smoke free environment (also the person I got the bug from) . He's had them running off a pair of rotel 980bxs bridged, 1 amp for each speaker. These will more than likely be up for sale as well, he's owned this since new when he brought them back around 1998. He still has the original boxing for the s8's, no boxes for the center or the rotels (they got water damaged, tuned to mush). There are another couple of things, such as the harman kardon receiver and a B&W sub along with a pioneer bluray player. Ideally he would like to move the paradigms and the rotels as a set, would more than likely do a deal for the lot if someone was interested. Now, the only draw back, he's located in Hawks Bay in New Zealand. So essentially this will limit potential interest. Attached you will find photos.
  7. Item: PARADIGM REFERENCE Seismic 110 Sub + Perfect Bass Kit Location: Sydney Price: $1000 ONO Item Condition: Excellent condition Reason for selling: streamlining system / raising funds Payment Method: Cash, Paypal Extra Info: I'm the second owner of this sub having purchased it off a fellow Sydney-sider in late 2017. It presents in excellent condition, 100% functioning, with no dents or scratches beyond the polish marks evident to the rear panel as photographed. Presently retails in Australia for over $2000 and is highly regarded as a smaller 'premium' sub, seemingly universally attested to in all review literature I found prior to my purchase: https://www.whathifi.com/paradigm/seismic-110/review https://www.avforums.com/review/paradigm-seismic-110-subwoofer-review.156 https://www.techradar.com/uk/reviews/audio-visual/hi-fi-and-audio/hi-fi-and-av-speakers/paradigm-seismic-110-901098/review https://hometheaterhifi.com/reviews/speaker/subwoofers/paradigm-reference-seismic-110-subwoofer/ Included in the sale is: - Seismic 110 sub + standard C15 power cable with no original packaging. I do however have a suitably protective/padded box I made up for purposes of transit. - Perferct Bass Kit complete with all packaging Pickup preferred (Sutherland or Nth Sydney) but will consider postage options. Thanks. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.

  9. Item: Paradigm S8v3 - C5v3 Location: Melbourne Price: S8’s v3: $8000.00 (RRP $15,595) SOLD C5 v3 (including Stand): $3000.00 ($6995.00 RRP) & ($699.00 RRP) Item Condition: Excellent (with full packaging) Reason for selling: Regretful sale Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: It is with great regret that I am selling these speakers. They are without doubt the best I have ever owned for home theatre and stereo listening. But due to circumstances beyond my control, a regretful sale is now required. I would prefer to sell all 3 speakers, but will consider selling the C5 separately depending on interest I guess. The C5 also come with the stand, which on its own is RRP $699.00. The C5 is packed away as I turned my room into a dedicated 2 channel listening zone, but it is in excellent condition, however happy to take snaps if there is a serious buyer out there. I am more than happy, actually I would recommend a demo to any serious buyer so you can check the excellent condition and the amazing sound. Please do not ask for postal information as these are very heavy beasts. If you wish to purchase them unheard, then please do your own research and organise a courier yourself. S8 v3: ($15595.00 RRP) Height, Width, Depth 123.2 cm x 21.0 cm x 52.1 cm Weight (unpacked) 45.3 kg / 100 lb each C5 v3: ($6995.00 RRP) Height, Width, Depth 24.1 cm x 95.3 cm x 44.4 cm Weight (unpacked) 36.7 kg / 81 lb each J-18C Stand: ($699.00 RRP) Height, Width, Depth 43.0 cm x 67.0cm x 32.4cm Weight (unpacked) 30.07 kg These speakers are exceptional and sound as good as they look! Designed, engineered and crafted in Canada they have superb build quality and exquisite styling. Their curves are balanced by the rugged ISO shock mounting that couples the super-Neodynium mid range drivers and 4 mineral filled polypropylene bass drivers. Finished in a top quality Cherry, they exude class (and make taking photos really tricky to avoid selfie reflections!). They reveal immense clarity and detail across a wide sound stage with a sense of space and ease. At 92dB sensitivity they work effortlessly. I found the bass dynamic, crisp and punchy. The S8’s were Paradigms top of the range reference speaker which I purchased for 14,095.00. This honour now goes to the Persona series that reach upwards of $50,000 I believe. Paradigm WebSite: https://www.paradigm.com/en/floorstanding/signature-s8 https://www.paradigm.com/en/center/signature-c5 https://www.paradigm.com/en/stands/j-18c-stand They were rated in the top 25 speakers of all time by http://audiophilereview.com/audiophile/the-25-ultimate-audiophile-speakers-of-all-time.html “When it comes to audiophile grade floorstanding loudspeakers, names like Revel, Wilson Audio and Bowers & Wilkins are often dropped – but at one third the price, the Paradigm Reference Signature S8s hang right in there with the 800s and WATT Puppies of the world.” There is no shortage of outstanding reviews for the S8 (and their slightly smaller brother, the s6) Here are just 2: http://hometheaterreview.com/paradigm-reference-signature-s8-v3-loudspeakers-reviewed/ “You could talk about the S8 versus other loudspeakers in the $4,000 to $10,000 price range but the Paradigms simply wipe the floor with nearly every player in that part of the market on most levels...the Paradigm Signature S8 is possibly the best value in high-end loudspeakers period.” http://www.avrev.com/home-theater-loudspeakers/speaker-systems/paradigm-reference-signature-series-review-2.html “Their effortless sound created an extraordinary sense of space like very few dynamic speakers I’ve heard at any price. In many ways, their sound reminded me of the Revel Salon speakers, but for less than half the cost.” I know my photo skills leave a lot to be desired!

  10. Hi all, If you are the type to like "vintage" or just "discontinued" gear, then maybe you can relate to this. I can't be alone in this situation? Grab yourself a cuppa, make yourself comfortable, and let me know what you think after you've read my tale. Ready? Let's begin: I bought myself a Paradigm Studio (v.5) system when they were being discontinued in 2015 (and thus far more affordable than their typical prices beforehand). I really enjoy the sound, and while yes there are better speakers out there, I just know the sound the Studios make and it's what I've become used to. As you might imagine, the Studios are getting pretty hard to come by in 2019, and weren't easy even when I started this journey. However, I write this, partly to warn people of buying discontinued series, and encourage the consideration of an important question: "Is this an opportunity, or is this discount going to be a false economy?". The answer might be better determined with another question. "Can I afford to get everything I need while it's available?". I started my Monitor-to-Studio series upgrade with a pair of 100s for fronts, a pair of 20s for surrounds, and a CC-590 centre. Even then, the colours didn't match. I had "Rosewood" 20s, and "Black Ash" fronts and centre. Never did I think I'd be buying more speakers to run more channels, and so quite some time passed in blissful 5.1 experiences. After my early 2000s era receiver died of old age, I upgraded from 5.1 to a 7.2 model. In order to use those channels, my system became a bit of a hybrid between the Paradigm Monitor (v.7) system that I started with, and whatever Studio gear I can scrounge up. For the most part, the Monitor series (V.7) is a surprisingly decent family of speakers for the money, and even contains "trickle down" technology from the Studio series. However, it's just that Monitor Series speakers do suffer from an enthusiastic tweeter which makes them a bit "bright". Not a problem for most, but when listening in a mixed environment with Studios, the change in tone between channels is noticeable. So, "completing the Studio set" became a "slow and steady" goal that has honestly.... been quite an undertaking. I managed to upgrade the CC-590 to the CC-690 in 2015 when one was sold in the local auction house. Yes, it wasn't strictly speaking necessary, but it was more acoustically matched to the 100 fronts (particularly with the bass end), but the sheer size of the massive centre meant that I had to modify my TV unit to accommodate it, and I was honestly surprised that it ended up being the glossy "Piano Black" instead of the matte "Black Ash"model mentioned (so I guess I screwed up my colour scheme even more). I sold the 590 years later in 2018, because no one seemed all that interested in it... other than low-ballers which I rejected on principle. So it sat in storage for quite a while. Later, I bought a discounted Studio Sub 15 from the local Hi-Fi shop. Within a few months, it started suffering of a high-pitched whine. You can read the nearly year-long saga of that in my other posts, but ultimately the entire cabinet was replaced because the repair guy damaged the veneer. Other repairs were made including the replacement of some capacitors in the amplifier. Unfortunately, the problem returned a few months after that. So the sub made another junket to Melbourne, but the problem apparently did not repeat itself while in the care of the warranty guys. When it returned, I combined it with my two Monitor Sub 12's, and after using the "Perfect Bass it" (or PBK), I've tamed those beasts to integrate quite nicely into the system, but it definitely took some "trial and error". The whine is still there, but less often, and more subtle. When serendipity stuck in early 2017, I was given another pair of 20's (shockingly, they matched my existing "Rosewood" 20s) by a colleague who decided to upgrade. I had not-so-subtly suggested that "If you were to upgrade, keep me in mind for these", and since I happened to un-delete some of his major project work a week earlier which had not been backed up.... I learned (yet again) that goodwill truly has a value. But my acquisitions weren't always that easy. Later, my partner decided that in light of our upgrade of the aged TV and gremlin-ridden bluray player to shiny 4K models in late 2017, it would be nice if the receiver could actually push the 4K signal through. Long story short, the receiver was upgraded again, and now we had the capacity for even more channels which I wired back up to my "spare" Monitor speakers with a little too much enthusiasm. In September 2018, I leapt at the chance when another Canberra based IT guy like myself was selling a pair of 20s. I wasn't at all interested in the 490 centre he was packaging, and honestly informed him as such, but we agreed on a fair price, so I bought the lot. This might have been just three or so months after I sold the 590... so it was as if someone was saying "out with the old, and in with... wait... the smaller brother of what just left? Huh?". Realizing that I'd literally owned all three models of centre speakers... I later found that the only speakers in the Studio v.5 line I hadn't owned at that point were the 10s, the 60s, and the Sub 12. So I thought that I might be able to offer some advice on most of the series. Ultimately, I wrote a rather detailed (or long-winded if you prefer) review of each known speaker on ProductReview, stating the pros and cons of each model, but it was later "archived" due to a lack of interest. Fast forward to Easter, 2019. I found a guy on Gumtree selling "A set of barely used cherry coloured Studio speakers, including a pair of 60s, a CC-590 + a pair 20s + Studio Sub 12". After driving all the way to Sydney for this sale, and testing with my own receiver, I found that the 20s, were in fact 10s, the CC-590, was in fact a CC-490, the Sub 12 was faulty, but the 60s were good. The Studio 10s, also had grills where the holding pins had been snapped off and poorly re-glued. Naturally, I renegotiated the price. So now what have I ended up with: 2x Studio 100s Black Ash (working, as fronts) 2x Studio 60s Cherry coloured (working as the surrounds) 6x Studio 20s 4x Rosewood, 2x Cherry, (working as the surround backs, front heights, and rear heights) 2x Studio 10s Cherry coloured (working but grill needs repair, currently unused) 1x Studio CC-690, Piano Black (working as the centre) 2x Studio CC-490, Cherry (working, one is unused, the other used in another setup) 1x Studio Sub 15, Rosewood (working as main "deep bass" sub, but with an occasional whine) 1x Studio Sub 12, Cherry (currently toast, but looking into getting repaired) I'm also using TWO Monitor Sub 12 V.7s with the 15" Sub to even out room-based anomalies, and fill out the "hearing-not-feeling bass". So my system is still... strictly speaking... a hybrid setup... but one that isn't nearly as noticeably problematic. Eventually, I'm planning to get rid of my Monitor series of speakers, including: Monitor 11s, "Mini Monitors" and "Surround 3s". The Monitor Sub 12s will probably be retired/sold if I can get the Studio Sub 12 running. Many of you might be wondering "Why not just upgrade to a newer/better system?". The answer comes in multiple parts, aside from the reasons mentioned above. Firstly, my partner likes the look of the Studio series. Secondly, the cost of a newer speaker series of this quality is often significantly higher. Thirdly combining careful speaker placement with both PBK and Anthem's room correction has (to me at least) nigh-on eliminated many of the complaints that others seem to dislike about this series. Yes, I'm not having much luck with the subs, yes a lot of my gear is getting to be 5, 7 or even 10 years old, the parts and replacements can be very expensive/difficult to get, yes there are better speakers, but to build an 7.3.4 Atmos system using gear that I've effectively gotten for a fraction of the going rate, has been a journey where I've met some interesting people that I've learned a lot from (even if there were challenging bits like travel and faulty components). At the end of the day, our home theatre is a place we all come home to in order to relax and recuperate. I'd honestly consider the performance of my colour-muddled system to be a match to some much more expensive systems, despite the age. I just have to remember that I have to consider my neighbours occasionally... despite the fact that these speakers sound even better when you power them appropriately and raise their voices. 🙂 I consider my tale a conditional success. But I've driven many miles, had buyers travel even more, I've missed many deals, carried heavy subs on multiple trips, combed through many classifieds, friends, colleagues, and search engines to get here, and although I now have enough to "complete my set", there's still some repairs and trading to be done. This road isn't for everyone, but the journey I've had has kept me... somewhat.. out of mischief. Knowing what you want now is helpful, especially if there are good deals, but having a "road map" of where you are likely to head with your hi-fi purchases, even if you can't buy everything at once is probably going to be an advantage, and help you to avoid some of the struggles I've been going through. I just hope this helps people (or even a person) to make the right decisions for themselves. Anyone else have similar tale? Nuggets of wisdom to impart? Marriages threatened by the cluttering of speakers perhaps? Have fun, and happy listening! Hamish.

  17. Item: Paradigm Studio 20v5 and Studio cc490v5 (Cherry) ( include Sound organization Z1 stands for Local pickup) Location: Gungahlin, ACT Price: AUD1700 + shipping neg Item Condition: 9/10, Excellent condition Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup/Courier - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Excellent Sounding speakers and a great entry into Hi-Fi and HT. Hi guys, I've had these great sounding speakers for a few years and bought them new from lifestyle audio Sydney(fronts) and miranda Hi-fi Canberra(centre) . The Studio had an RRP of AUD1900 and and the centre had a tag of AUD1499. I've thoroughly enjoyed the speakers and have taken great care of them. Always driven with quality amplification, these includes Consonance Cyber 800 Tube Monoblocks, Emotiva XPA-3 and Pioneer Class D receiver. Always crossed at 100Hz for movies and generally listening and never abused. The Studio 20s are very transparent sounding speakers with very nice low end (for bookshelf)partially due to it's 7 inch drivers . The Studio cc490 is a proper 3-way centre and swapping out to this (from a cheaper Paradigm) was a day and night experience. Crystal clear sound, excellent mid-bass with wide dispersion. They're both in Cherry veneer finish which is stunning to look at. They were also dearer than the black ash iirc and I had to wait for a little while for the stock in Cherry back then. My initial plan was to use these in a second setup but the reality is it'll be wasted and I need the funds for a new HT. I've got the original boxes and happy to ship them. For local pick-up, I'm happy to include the excellent Sound Organization Z1 (similar to soundstyle Z1) which is filled and damped with sand. Paid AUD400 for these. Any question pls let me know, and for local buyers viewing is welcome.

  18. Item: Pair of Paradigm ADP-390 v5 (White) - 5-driver, 3-way surround/rear adaptive dipole speakers. Location: Melbourne Price: $500 Item Condition: Very faint/dusty mark on one of the white speaker grilles, otherwise great. Reason for selling: Bought them from the original owner before I bought the new house, and don't fit in the room due to speaker shape & mounting requirements (it's a weird shaped room). Would rather them fit as opposed to selling, but WAF is low 😞 Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only. Can post at buyers expense. Extra Info: Includes original wall mounting brackets. Increasingly rare to find white ones for sale.

  20. Item: Paradigm DSP-3400 x2 Location: Sydney Price: $700 each or 1350$ for both (rrp $2099 each when i bought them) Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Too many subwoofers Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Almost brand new, probably had a few hours usage tops and that is in a room with about 10-12 other subs so not really cranked up at all. http://www.paradigm.com/products/paradigm/subwoofer/dsp-series/dsp-3400 Big Bass for a Small Space High-power DSP Series subwoofers are the result of Paradigm’s multi-year R&D effort to achieve exceptional high performance while accommodating the growing desire for installation flexibility. Not everyone wants a high-performance subwoofer on full display, so models are front-firing and front-ported with removable grilles, making them ideal for “hidden†installations. For those who want it all … exceptional high performance (including the sonic benefits of digital signal processing!), a smaller footprint, flexible placement options and killer price points, DSP subwoofers fit the bill. Control Facilities: • Auto On/Off • Subwoofer Level • Subwoofer Cut-Off Frequency (continuously variable 35 Hz – 150 Hz); Bypass Option • Sub/Sat Phase Alignment (0° to 180°) • USB Port/PBK Interface Input Facilities: • Line-level Inputs Advanced High-Power Class-D™ Amplifiers deliver massive amounts of high-current power with minimal distortion. 900 watts Dynamic Peak / 300 watts RMS. Forward-Firing Drivers with Advanced CAP™ Carbon / Aramid-Fiber Polypropylene Cones. Advanced cone material combines exceptional stiffness/low mass with excellent internal damping for tremendous freedom from unwanted resonances. Advanced Suspension Design and Large Magnet Structures encourage extended cone excursion while maintaining superb control over cone movement. High-Efficiency Dual-Ported Design. High-velocity low-noise ports with critically flared openings serve to reduce turbulence distortion. Front-ported design accommodates installation flexibility. Removable Grilles with SVS™ Slot Ventilation System allow release of the enormous air pressure generated by these high-output designs. Acoustically Inert MDF Enclosures serve to limit unwanted panel resonances and vibrations, ensuring clean, clear and very articulate bass performance.

  21. Hi all, I’m looking to get a new amp to pair with a set of mk1 Paradigm 9se speakers. They’re 4 ohm, 150w and have a sensitivity of 95db. It says “8 ohm compatible” or similar on the Paradigm website but clearly says “IMP: 4 ohms” on the back of the speakers. I asked a store for recommendations for integrated amps and was steered in the direction of the Musical Fidelity 5si/3si and NAD C368, all of which are way out of my budget. They also suggested that most entry level amps (Marantz PM5005/6005, Denon PMA-520Ae, etc) weren’t powerful enough to drive them properly, and under powering them may cause damage. Does anyone here here have any experience with these speakers? If so, what amps did you have sucess with? Or just large-ish 4 ohm speakers in general. I’d prefer an integrated amplifier but am not ruling out a pre-amp and power amp combination. I only need 2 channel output, a phono pre (doesn’t need to cater for MC), and 2 other sets of audio inputs. Bluetooth/wifi connectivity and a remote would be a bonus but not a necessity. Also don’t mind if it’s new or vintage, either way I’ll most likely be scrounging for a used item. Would love to be able to keep it under $500, I’m due for a cartridge replacement soon and can’t be putting too much money into this system at this stage. Any advice or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Cam
  22. Item: Paradigm Millenia CT 2 - 2.1 active speakers with sub Location: Forestville NSW Price: $350 Item Condition: Used - good physical condition Reason for selling: No longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, EFT Extra Info: My Paradigm Millenia speakers have been used as both a 2.1 system for a smaller TV room and lately as very useful desk speakers. The ability to tilt is handy to get them aimed at ears. The website can explain it better than I ever could. All the specs are there, and the means of connection (3.5mm analogue, toslink, bluetooth) https://www.paradigm.com/products-current/collection=shift/model=millenia-ct-2/page=overview Pickup only. Meet in Sydney locations by agreement only. Note that this will be listed pretty soon on other sites (Gumtree / EBay) as it probably more "lifestyle" and suits them better than the SNA target market. Also, it has been recently checked over by Electronics Today ( www.e2day.com.au ) and said it was working ok. Pictures:

  24. Item: Paradigm S8 v2 Signature floor-standing speakers. Location: Len Wallis Audio HQ, 64 Burns Bay Road, Lane Cove NSW Price: RRP $11,000 Our Price $3900 Item Condition: Excellent 2nd hand Condition Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Shipping: We can ship to anywhere in Australia. Price dependent on location. Extra Info: Feature packed and sonically superb. These just traded 3-way, 6 driver, Paradigm Reference Signature speakers are in excellent condition, save for a small nick on top of one of them. Come with their original cartons. Key Features: P-Be™ Pure-Beryllium Tweeter Domes. Pure beryllium was chosen for its exceptional thermal, physical and mechanical properties: lighter than diamond or aluminum with unmatched rigidity. Response is instantaneous and extraordinarily uniform. Elevating the dome promoted optimal off-axis dispersion. ARB™ Aperiodic Resonance Breakup Fins. Die-cast aluminum fins in rear damping chamber capture and quickly disperse residual internal resonances, rendering them inert. Co-PAL™ Cobalt-Infused Anodized Pure-Aluminum Midrange Cones. Combine high stiffness-to-mass with superior internal damping for an even greater degree of accuracy. The result is smooth, uncolored frequency response. Dual ATC™ Asymmetrical Tapered Channels. Precision die-cast aluminum chamber with tapered dual interior channels provide optimal volume. The asymmetrical design dissipates the back wave while the center of the chamber is direct-coupled to the huge magnet structure, providing an efficient thermal escape path for heat generated by the voice coil. Strategically positioned cooling fins on the rear of the chamber transfer heat away from the motor. Injection-Molded Mineral-Filled Polypropylene Bass Cones. The mineral content, now 30%, and the injection-molding process have resulted in a far more rigid cone. The improvements reveal a dramatic increase in repeatability as well as consistency of performance. To see the full specifications click here Pictures:
