  2. Item: SALK SONGTOWER SUPERCHARGED SPEAKERS (MAPLE WOOD GLOSS FINISH) Location: Perth (WA) Price: $2500 Item Condition: Immaculate (looks like new) Reason for selling: Used as 2nd system and new place has room for main system only Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only. Extra for shipping Extra Info: I have purchased the SALK speakers about 3 years ago and used as a 2nd system. It has been in storage for 1.5 years. They have less than 70 hours and barely just broken in. I have trialed many different speakers available in local shops but none appears great sound/value to my ears. I then shifted my focus to overseas direct sales and done a lot of research before I settled to buy these speakers (without listen). I was glad to make the decision and would really want to keep the speakers if room allows. I spent about $5800 AUD include shipping and tax from USA. A lot of great professional reviews on these speakers and still one of the favors for many buyers. Link for the speakers http://www.salksound.com/model.php?model=Supercharged+SongTower RAAL RIBBON This tweeter does an amazing disappearing act. It is almost as if there is no tweeter there at all...just a crystal clear window into the sound. This helps create the illusion that the performers are actually in the space with you. MAGNESIUM CONES The Seas W15 woofers in this design feature stiff, low-mass magnesium cones. Thus, they are able to re-create subtle detail in the midrange that other drivers simply can't reproduce. Many customers remark on hearing detail in familiar recordings that they never heard before. Reviews below are mostly for the base version and the supercharged is the upgraded version with much better sound! Audioholics http://www.audioholics.com/tower-speaker-reviews/salk-songtower-qwt I rarely gush over speakers as much as I have the Salk SongTower QWTs...The imaging is very good, the bass very deep and linear, and the detail is amazing...the Salks are a very, very good speaker in a very, very pretty package. Enjoythemusic.com http://www.enjoythemusic.com/magazine/equipment/0408/stalk_signature_songtower.htm Salk Signature Sound has hit an out of the park home run with the SongTower. The build quality and performance are both top shelf. In fact, they easily compare with speakers priced at two times their quite reasonable cost of admission. What I find incredible is that the SongTower is handcrafted in the United States, yet costs less than "comparable" speakers imported from other countries the absolute sound http://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/audio-by-van-alstine-ultravalve-power-amplifier-salk-sound-songtower-qwt-loudspeaker-tas-204/ ...one of the most enjoyable in some 30 years of audio reviewing, and enjoying the music is what this passion of ours should be all about. A four-star recommendation! Pictures:
  3. Hi, Does anybody know somewhere that does repairs on super tweeters, the brand is Grant. Any assistance would be helpful. Thanks in advance. JJ
  4. Item: Apogee Minor Location: Canberra Price: $900 Item Condition: excellent Reason for selling: upgrading Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: These Apogee Centaur is known as an audiophile reference speaker. It comes very close to the sound of the quad esl, whilst being much easier (and cheaper) to drive. http://www.audioreview.com/cat/speakers/floorstanding-speakers/apogee-acoustics/centaur-minor/prd_120857_1594crx.aspx anywhere in the world they sell for $1200-$1500 second hand. For some reason beyond me they they get crap prices in Australia. I find that hard to understand, considering the cost of importing them, then the fact that the replacement ribbons are actually made here. They are great for all sorts of music, with acoustic music and voice being their special area. Te best results I have had was with a 10 watt SET OTL amp, and they were just stunning (sadly Iblew one of these mono blocks but you can test then with the working one) They show the best with high end sources, such as high res digital and audiophile vinyl In the review above one respondent critics the bass drivers- however this is much disputed on other forums, e.g. the planar asylum. I will consider offers Pictures:

  6. Hi All, I'm thinking of buying some Magnepan speakers and the MMG is on my curious list. Are there any MMG owners in Melbourne who might allow me to have a quick listen to see if the MMG's will float my boat? I've heard the 1.7's and the newer i version so I know the sound but I'd like to hear the MMG. I have various speakers from Tannoy and Kef as well as other gear I can bring for the fun of it if that is of interest. Cheers, Legs11
  7. Item: 1pair Dali DaCapo Ribbon Speakers. Vintage unknown but Dali top of line speaker from 1988 to 1992. New price then was ~$6k. Later full size ribbon speakers way more than that. I purchased these to do a full refurb, having heard these in 1992, wanted them, but could not afford back then. Started refurb, but the SQ was way better than my earlier speakers [ribbons from 400Hz & up] & after the crossovers were refreshed they stayed hooked up. Previous owner purchased new, was a classical music lover & sold them when he moved into a retirement home. I have used with a sub & electronic crossover. My project would have been similar to John Reekie's minidsp & 2 way fully active. But I never started after buying 2 spare ribbons. I was happy listening to these as they were. These still kick arse in SQ with original ribbon drivers. Beth Hart "Your Heart is as Black as Night" is rendered with a lot of impact and raw emotion. Suit a vintage hifi system or some one wanting audiophile grade ribbon speakers on a budget. So cheap but have to go. Unfortunately my wife wants the space back & the second pair of speakers must go & does not care if either the Maggies or the Dalis go, so long as back to one pair. I could live with either. I have a Bryston 2B Power Amp to suit with first dibs to the buyer. Location: Sydney Price Drop: $1,200 to $1,000 including 2 spare ribbons in sealed vials I purchased for the full refurb for $400 for the pair. These replacement ribbons when installed will last another 25 years. Dali still have spare parts. Item Condition: Ribbons & woofers fully functional, but one ribbon has been repaired. Crossover capacitors refreshed 1 year ago. Ribbon grill cloth could do with a refresh. If you know how to put on a pair of stockings then you should be capable of replacing the grey ribbon cloth. There is one 5 mm diameter nick out of the lower LHS ribbon panel. It is small, although it looks huge in the close up photo. Close to the floor & hardly noticeable. Black grill cloth fine on woofer box. Metal base is fine as is both of the aluminium top bars. The RHS amplifier connectors have been replaced with Jaycar gold/brass connectors on the copper bars connecting to the ribbon and woofer speakers. The photos show reflection from the flash for the woofer membrane & the ribbon but in normal light these are difficult to see. Reason for selling: Upgraded, wife wants these gone to reclaim the sun room. I cannot justify another set of ribbon speakers PM me if you have any questions or would like an audition. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: 1. Due to weight (30kg) & size, expensive to ship. I do not have suitable boxes to pack, so pick up only 2. Prepared to swap for a power amp. These are smaller PM with offer. Brochure here http://www.dali-spea...ALI-DaCapo.aspx [Danish] Manual attached - an interesting read & no longer on the Dali website. Drivers: Woofer - 10" X 40" membrane driven by 8" woofer - to match the dispersion characteristics of the ribbon near the crossover frequency Midrange/tweeter - 40" ribbon Frequency Response - 45 - 20kHz +/- 4dB Crossover Frequency: 400Hz Sensitivity (2.83V) - 85dB @ 1m Recommended amplifier - 50 to 200W / channel [easy to drive as the ribbon is 4ohm & not capacitive nor inductive] Dimensions Height - 118cm Depth (inc. base) - 31cm Depth (exc. base) - 15cm Width - 45cm Weight - 30kg each Pictures: Images attached Attached Thumbnails Attached Files DALI_DACAPO.pdf 607.97KB 9 downloads
  8. Item: Apogee Duetta Signature speakers Location: Surry Hills, Sydney Price: $2500 Item Condition: A few marks on frames, perfect ribbons Reason for selling: Moving house, new baby, picky wife Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: See below Pictures: See below It is with great regret that I am selling my Apogee Duetta Signature speakers. A new baby means we are probably moving, and toddler fingers and ribbons aren't a great combo. Many will need to introduction to these classics, but suffice it say they are generally considered to hit the sweet spot between size and quality in the Apogee range. They were considered amongst the very best regardless of price when released, and this seems to be the case today. The Apogees replaced my Linkwitz Orions and provide similar to slightly quality. I've owned Wilson, big Genesis, Maggies, Martin Logan and many others and these would be my pick. There are a few marks on the frames, but most importantly the ribbons seem to my eyes and ears to be physically and aurally flawless. There are no buzzes when run full range. I use them with a pair of Rythmik subs in any case. The Apogees provide transparent, dynamic full range sound that is pretty unique. I would greatly prefer pickup in Surry Hills because they are big and heavy. But I do have boxes which I had made when I bought them, and you can get original boxes or custom shipping containers from Graz in Queensland. So I could ship if I must.
