  10. Item: Pair of Mission 701 speakers Location: Lindfield, Sydney Price: $200 Item Condition: Perfect, no wear or faults Reason for selling: Smaller accommodation, insufficient space Payment Method: Cash on pick-up Extra Info: DESCRIPTION Mission 701 has remained a well-regarded model for many years. As well as being well-reviewed for its full rich sound and high efficiency, it has a sturdy build quality and an attractive black wood-grain finish. Can be used on stands (not included) or on a large bookshelf. These speakers have an unusually powerful and clear bass for their size, a smooth top-end, great depth and imaging in the mid-range, and a warm sound without excessive brightness. They can compete with modern speakers at a significantly higher price and are particularly suited to classical, jazz and acoustic music genres because of their good detail and sound colour, although users seem to like them across a range of genres. Great for home theatre as well. They can produce plenty of volume if that's what you want, although I have appreciated their clarity in a small setting. See specs below. CONDITION Perfect working condition, never driven hard, only used occasionally at low volume for short periods, so no internal wear. Powered by a Cyrus 8 Qx amplifier (not included): 70 W per channel into 8 ohms. Also excellent cosmetic condition, no dings or scratches, even the front grills are flawless. I bought them new and I am very careful with my equipment. Always kept indoors in smoke-free, pet-free, child-free home. MY HISTORY To confirm my reliability as a private seller, please view my feedback on Ebay (you will need to look at previous years as I have been using Gumtree recently): http://feedback.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback2&userid=winner.grinner&ftab=AllFeedback&items=25 SPECS https://www.cnet.com/products/mission-700-series-701-speaker/specs Type: 2-way passive, 2 driver loudspeaker system Frequency Response: 50 Hz to 20 kHz Crossover Frequency: 4000 Hz Recommended Amplifier: 25 to 100 W Impedance: 8 Ω Sensitivity: 89 dB Bass: 1 x 165 mm profiled GC cone Tweeter: 1 x 25 mm soft dome Enclosure: bass reflex Dimensions: 450 (H) x 215 (W) x 300 (D) mm Weight: 6.8 Kg MANUAL https://www.hifiengine.com/manual_library/mission/701.shtml USER REVIEWS http://www.testfreaks.co.uk/hifi-speakers/mission-electronics-701/ Pictures:

  16. Item: VAF Research DC-3 G4MKII Universal Speakers with flush mount flange in white, set of two Location: Hobart, Tasmania Price: $799 including road freight Australia wide. Item Condition: Good condition, lightly used, one small scratch beneath the grill of one speaker (marked on photo) Reason for selling: These are surplus to my needs and I do not have room to store them. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Bank deposit Extra Info: These were purchased in June 2016 to evaluate for use in a commercial project. We decided against them for that project, so they ended up in my office for the next year. On their own with a basic amp, they sounded good to my (non-golden) ears, however, as VAF themselves suggest, they're at their best when paired with a sub. Very lightly used. Fitted with the flush mount flange for wall mounting (for which VAF charged an extra $160!). All up I paid $1008.30 for these. For warranty purposes, I can provide the original purchase receipt. I've attached the product brochure from VAF. Pictures: VAF.DC-3.speakers.brochure.pdf

  18. Hey Everyone, First time posting here but long-term audiophile since I was in high school. Back in about July 2017 I purchased this speaker kit from the USA, this is a Dayton Audio / Parts Express kit jointly designed by Don Keele, Jr. I've always been very interested in this technology as the ground plane version that these are and the version before use the floor reflection as an advantage instead of a destructive influence. The kit is called the CBT24, "Epique" I purchased the kit as the difference in price is about 500USD, I thought I could save a lot on painting and assembling myself (and I did). The kit comes with premade wiring harness for both, all major wood working assembly already done, wiring binding post input cup, bolts, drivers, screws, name plates and sound deadening. 24 x 2-inch Dayton Audio ND64-16 2-1/2" Full Range drivers are what these are designed around, each are 16 ohms DC, with the harness a 4-ohm load total is what is seen at the amp. The wiring in the CBT24 is such that the loudest output are at the floor and quietest (12db approx.) down at the top, only two massive resistors are needed for the attenuation/padding of the last couple of drivers, more on the technology and the shading maths behind it can be found on Dons website : http://www.xlrtechs.com/dbkeele.com/ Below is a timeline of photos from the start to finish: The padding resistors I added a little zip tie to remove the strain on the resistor leads, there are two in each speaker, so this is added insurance the resistor wouldn't break in two :P The MDF boxes as delivered, I test fitted the drivers and noted that the side walls were a little tight on the outside basket of the drivers, especially at the ends of the boxes, I noted this and sanded those MDF edges heavily, this is something I did tell the supplier about, even just 1 mm wider would have been nice to reduce the chance of scratching the paint/finish. Here are the Dayton Audio ND64-16 2-1/2" Drivers, very well made for how cheap they are, especially when there is 48 x of them I did discover however that the metal frame vents do get blocked off quite a bit on the MDF cut-outs as the thickness and proximity of the MDF is almost the same height, I left the boxes un modified due to the amount of work to correct this. Chamfers on the rear inside edges of all the driver cut-outs would be a nice change in future versions to release the pressure, this choking does affect the TS parameters of the woofers from reading I’ve done. After receiving the kit, I did research on MDF preparation etc, I settled on the following procedure sticking to Oil Based paint the whole way through: 1) Sand RAW MDF with White 180 Grit Sandpaper 2) Seal with Dulux Prep coat 1Step Oil Based Primer, Sealer & Undercoat, I rolled this on with roller and a fine good quality brush. 3) Sanded Undercoat with 220 Grit Sandpaper 4) Apply Base/Final coats: Rust-Oleum 2x UltraCover Paint+Primer with light sanding between. 5) Apply Clear coat: Also Rust-Oleum Branded Gross finish. I first painted the bases completely to get a feel for my ability, I did work out my approach to sanding the undercoat was not enough, I did get a slight orange peel look to it, I fixed this in the tower painting by sanding the under coat with 180 then 220 Grit to first get the levels all correct and then sand further to smooth it. Once I was happy with the bases (halted at clear-coat stage) I stared on the towers, these took about a day to sand ready, I also filled in gaps like the one below with some putty Next, I coated everything in one go so that the panels that would be seen the most, two sides, top and front where well connected and consistent finish. I rolled on this undercoat and brushed on small tight areas too to make sure even coverage. I did fail to seal the bottom thick enough the first time haha, I fixed this later by just using the roller. This was both towers fully coated and drying (no picture of rear panel and bottom being finished) Next, I sanded them with 180 then 220 grit sandpaper, and cleaned them thoroughly before the main black paint, here I laid them down on one side, this method seemed to work very well for the base black paint as I could get nice even application. Each coat on each speaker was recorded so i could track where i was up to, I alternated between sides, back and front to get even coverage. Once all the main paint was done I proceeded to attach the towers to the bases, in hindsight this was a mistake for the clear coat, I worked out with the clear coat that actually almost flooding the area of application instead of a thin coat resulted in less over-spray or chemical dust getting on the bases and other panels. I instead disassembled them and made some temporary feet from scrap MDF I had, this allowed clear coating of the bases and towers to be down separate which resulted in a much more professional look. In the end I ended up using approx 2litres of clear coat in spray-can form to coat these o-o I left them to dry for approx 8 days to make sure as much of the fumes was gone, I then blew all the dust out ready to bring inside, I settled on not even sanding or polishing the finish as it was already butter smooth. I attached the base temporarily and sat both upright to install the wiring harness in both through the top hole. A recommendation I read was to leave the speaker input cup until last instead of connecting it first, as fly leads outside the box were much easier to connect instead of reaching in. I then laid them the towers on their side, removed the base and used a little hot glue gun and glued the harnesses in place in both boxes, making sure each labelled connection came out the correct baffle hole number and that the wiring and resistors were far back as possible from each driver, without being to far for the cables not to reach. Once wiring was done I inserted and left loose the Polyfil sound deadening. Once all the wiring was done I unpacked all the 48x woofers and tested all for similar resistance and for mechanical noise - all passed I then screwed in all the drivers by hand, I strongly suggest test fitting each and pushing them down first as some of the spade input terminal areas of the woofers had a tad to much solder, rubbing up against the MDF cut-out. Finally the bases could be attached for the last time completing the build. I then spent a whole heap of time setting them up. Nice little arty picture here: The system they are now apart of consists of the following: 2x CBT24 1x NAD C245BEE 4 channel amp (only two channels used as 4ohm load) 1x Custom made digital Preamp (pictured below), USB Streamer, Optical/Coaxial SPDIF input, MiniDSP branded 2x4 + MiniDigi combo, running left and right active sub-woofers in stereo or 2 in 4 out. 2x Yamaha NS-SW300 sub-woofers in stereo (not summed mono) 1x Marantz CD32 CD Player. No room correction on the MiniDSP at this time, only a phase flip on the subs, crossovers are 100hz @ LR 48db/Octave. The system sounds awesome even without E.Q. and is well worth the time put it. Thanks for Reading, please leave a comment
  19. Now that my Lenehan ML2 Limited speakers are back, complete with silver Deulund bypass caps, I thought it might be time to perform a bit of a write up. However, pics first. I've had these speakers for a while now, having swapped my pair of ML3 reference floor standers for them with Gremrock. I liked the ML3s but my lounge was too small for them and I found that the slightly larger bass driver didn't sound as good to me as the smaller driver in the ML2s (and my much loved S2Rs). I swapped them in and out of the system 3 or 4 times and while I liked them quite a bit I always went back to my S2Rs. The ML2s certainly sound different than the S2Rs, much more revealing in the treble and as so fairly demanding on the equipment in front of them. They do not treat poorly designed amps, pres, sources, or DACs well at all. They were good, very good in fact (and I certainly wasn't going to move them on) but I kept going back to the S2Rs. I thought there were several reasons for this, one was that I've done so many amp reviews on the S2Rs that I didn't really want to have to change my reference point. One was that there is a little bit of warmth in the S2Rs that wasn't present in the ML2 Ltds, and one was that the extra detail that the ML2s shone a light on was sometimes unsettling. It made me feel like I would have to re-calibrate my ears and I wasn't quite prepared to do that. And then I broke a spade off the speaker cables (my ML2 Ltds have external crossovers with fixed speaker cables so with a broken spade on the amp end I was one speaker down). And just a week later came Mike's thread about an ML2 Ltd upgrade. (Link below) https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/236101-lenehan-ml2limited-with-duelund-silver-bypass/ Sounds like happenstance was making a decision for me, I could take the crossovers back to Mike for a quick fix up job and get an upgrade at the same time, and all in time for Christmas. Now that seemed like serendipity. Done and done! After a road trip down to pick them up yesterday and a quick moment of panic last night when a thunderstorm took the power out about 10 minutes after I got back from Brisbane things settled down. I set them up, gave them a test run and headed off to bed, too tired for a serious trial listen. But this morning, this morning was the most fun I've had in a long while. This morning I experienced the best system I have yet heard. That cap upgrade was obviously exactly what I needed. The music was sweeter, slightly more relaxed and just so much more pleasant to listen to. And listening fatigue, well listening fatigue had not only left the building it was indisposed on a long haul, one way international flight out of the country. The last amp I had in use was Simon's Zeus Integrated so I just left it hooked up and ran my trusty old YBA Heritage cd player through it and damn I was happy. After a dozen songs of being happy I started to get curious so I swapped in the Burson Conductor as a DAC and found that it upped the ante again. It seems to synergise very well with the Zeus, I was loving every minute of this. I was tempted out of my listening by the offer of a free lunch (thanks Dan!) and returned later to try out another album, and then, curious once more, another amp. The Technical Brain Integrated has a different feel to it than the Zeus, and I found that it much prefers to be fed direct from the cd player rather than the Burson Conductor. There's a lighter tone to the TB and definitely more delicacy on display. I have yet to get to the 907 NRA and the Xindak, but I will (probably more than once!). Tonight will be a late one, but a good one. 'ing the speakers Mike, and the upgrade.

They are very good but I found better synergy with another set. This is from the previous owner, a much more experienced and knowledgeable SNA er then me. "An absolute "giant-killer" of a cable. I've used Grovers cables for over 10 years now. For the money, you'd be hard pressed to beat them. They excell at midrange tone and lose nothing in bass or treble extension against cables costing several thousands. They're just too short for the setup I'm forced to use due to room constraints these days. Plenty of reviews online and unlike many others, Grover backs up his claims with Patents and explanations. http://www.groverhuffman.com/speakercables Picture
