  1. A thread dedicated to speakers having a rated efficiency of 96db\watt\meter or more. Over the years I have built a number of speakers, mostly single driver, which have been high efficiency. We are all aware that low power valve and SS amps can struggle to produce good volume levels with speakers of efficiency lower then 90db. But team-up you flea power valve amp with a speaker featuring the Fostex FE206En and magic happens. Even SS amps in the 25W range can not always produce the dynamics which more powerful amps will produce into speakers with a more normal 87db rating. I have built four pairs of speakers three using the Fostex FE206En, the driver having a rating of 96db. From simple ported types to the super complex back loaded horn. See images. These have worked extremely well with 2 to 5W SE valve amps but some complain there is no weight behind the music. I think the counter argument to this is that these ultra light weight coned speakers produce better micro-dynamics, general dynamics and detail than there less efficient partners. Weight in notes can be enhanced with the use of active sub-woofers or assisted bass speakers and yet still retain the detail and dynamics of these special drivers. Over the last three or four months I have been using only my DIY 98db efficient 12" Beyma concentric speakers (retro-thermionic - VoXConcentriC). My 5.8W DIY SE 300B plays to ear-bleeding levels when hook-up to the Beymas. They are Tannoy style and with a 2" Titanium tweeter produce reasonable bass to 50hz and bright treble response to 20K+. To pickup a little more weight in the lower register I team them up with 12" active stereo sub-woofers. This way I get bas down to 31hz, crisp micro-dynamics, detail and what appears to be unlimited head room. I have really fallen in love with these speakers. Even my 3W DIY 6V6 SE amp plays to excessive levels with these speakers. Voice, brass, and acoustic instruments sound excellent and alive through these inexpensive speakers. I like these Beymas so much I have ordered the 15" version. Please post your experience, good or bad, with either commercially built or DIY high efficiency speakers. Any projects you may have in the future and would like to discuss here. Images are always good to. Even experiences at shows, demos etc.
  2. Hi All, Revisiting the vinyl scene after many years away and have started out with a Pioneer LP30 turntable and I already had a Yamaha HTR-6130 receiver. Down the track I would like to upgrade eveything, but my budget will not allow that for a fair while. I would like to add better speakers than the ones that came with the receiver and was looking at a few bookshelf speaker options. I have seen a few Edifier model and also a Pioneer SP-BS22-LR Bookshelf Speaker. I only have up to $300 to spend. I know nothing will blow me away with my current set up and budget, but it's a start to listen to what I have. Does anyone have any suggestions?

  4. Having tried a couple of couriers in the past with limited success. I need another pair of speakers (total 70kgs) moved from Melbourne to Sydney. Recent quotes from e-go (cheapest $), Pack & Send ($$$), Smart Send ($$$), Interparcel (via TNT - road were affordable) - any other recommendations? So far, only PackSend and Smart Send offer Insurance of amounts over 2k.
  5. Hi, I've had these beauties tested and all drivers are functioning perfectly, they sound incredible. Matching serial numbers as indicated in the photos and they also come with a stand for each speaker. There is some cosmetic damage so please refer to the photos. Local pick up in Sydney region. I don't have an amp, i had them tested at a hifi store so you'll need to byo if you want to test, my appologies. They were left to me from a family member who has passed away, I know theres someone out there who will appreciate them. Edit: I'm no longer accepting PayPal I'm only accepting cash, my apologies to anyone wishing to use this service but there are too many scammers. Still happy to prove they're fully functional to those who are serious about the purchase. Edit 2: I'd also like to mention that I've included the speaker stands in the purchase price to offset the cosmetic damage. I know their valuable and I believe that's a fair trade.

  7. SN members who recall my earlier listings (incl. Linear Tube Audio, Focal Mini Utopia, Consonance Linear 1 preamp, 845s monoblocks) might have noted my somewhat inherent alacrity to share my own experiences in the quest for that ‘elusive ultimate’ reproduction of music (my own ‘learning curve’ if you like, now spanning almost 40 years) (As the brand may not be as well known locally as it is around the globe, anyone interested can of course access ample material online. I will include just few links to some basic info at the bottom of the listing) My personal appreciation of Piega originated back in 2013 at the Munich High End Show, i.e. the day I discovered how piano can actually sound out of a loudspeaker. Ever since that occasion I kept coming back to that memorable sensation as if to a new reference in my search for that next speaker. When Interdyn took up Australian distribution of Piega products I managed to secure a home audition of the Coax 90.2, which precipitated in farewelling my much-loved Focal Mini Utopias (sold here on SN in Nov 2018). To add some further perspective to where Piega performance sits: more recently I have also auditioned in my system a pair of Focal Sopra 2 which, as great as they really sounded, I did not feel they fully matched the overall coherence or refinement offered by the Piegas. To complete this ‘narrative’ - my latest antidote for this seemingly incurable case of ‘audio nervosa’ has now taken me all the way to a pair Focal Utopia Scala Evo. (yes, my wife has finally kindly agreed to sell one of her kidneys…) At the time the RRP for the Piega Coax 90.2 was $26K AUD per pair. I purchased this pair new in 2018; have retained all packaging and accessories. The condition is as new. For anyone still reading - the key technical aspects behind the extraordinary qualities of the Piega lie in their unique design of the coaxial ribbon drivers which are largely responsible for their exceptionally balanced & refined presentation that this proprietary driver design imparts (refer pic 8). Additionally, the cabinets of top PIEGA models are processed (as in the case of Coax 90.2) from one solid aluminium block. As a result of this unique manufacturing process, they are totally void of any seams and are produced with unparalleled precision. They can also be formed into elegant shapes whilst negating any standing waves inside the cabinet. Piega’s natural sound reproduction is one of the significant benefits attributable to the use aluminium cabinets. Piega Coax 90.2 Specifications: Recommended amplifier output: 20 – 250 Watt Sensitivity: 92db – W/m/ Impedance: 4 Ohms Frequency range: 24Hz – 50 khz Dimensions: (HxWxD) 112 x 26 33 cm Weight net: 46kg each unit Design principle: 3-way system; floor standing loudspeaker Equipment: 2 x 18cm MOM® bass, 1 x C1 Coaxial Ribbon Connection: Bi-Wiring WBT Manufacture: Engineered and hand crafted in Switzerland Some of the prestigious ultra High End accolades awarded to Piega: https://piega.ch/en/awards General info: PIEGA speaker Ribbon System and Seamless Aluminium … https://piega.ch/en/insights/unsere-geheimwaffen-bandchen-technologie-aluminium Understandably would prefer a local pick up but can ship at buyer's expense which must include appropriate insurance. Happy to respond to any relevant questions via PM. Richard
  8. For sale: 2x Meridian 5500 DSP Loud Speakers. Bundled with an old studio sale 5 years ago, these have never left the spare room. They have not been tested as they require a DSP main unit to operate which is not included in the sale. I have powered them up and the LED's go on. There is some broken glass on the name plate on one of the speakers. Some paint chips on the timber but nothing obscene. Photo's included. I'm assuming this is a fair price for these speakers. dsp5500-digital-active-loudspeaker-datasheet.pdf

  10. Item: Floorstanders or bookshelf speakers Price Range: max $300 Item Condition: Used Extra Info: I had to sell my beautiful Orpheus Auroras recently for emergency cash, thus without music now. I'm after speakers in the Cairns QLD 4870 area for pickup or I can arrange courier pickup from you front door if you can package the speakers. The courier (www.sendle.com.au) constraints are: 100 litre and 25kg per item. So lighter, individual floorstanders are an option. I am aware that I'm asking for a lot with that low cost, but unfortunately that is my budget - for local pickup I can go a bit higher to include the amount I would have spent on shipping. Thank you so much for your kind consideration.

  13. Further information: Selling my Set of Polk Audio Signature S20 Bookshelf Speakers which I have had for nearly almost a year and they have performed flawlessly in the time I have had them, they sound very nice with nice clear treble and mids and very good lows for a bookshelf speaker thanks to the power port. These speakers were used as my front speakers for a second room set up. I'm mainly selling these because I have moved up to the s50 floorstanding speakers in the Polk Signature range.
  14. Ascension (Adelaide Speakers)...........Made In Australia Valve series prototype V1062AQTL 2-way Efficient Floor Standing Speakers Purchased direct from Adelaide speakers on 25th January 2020 http://www.adelaidespeakers.com/valve.html Local Pickup Only - No Postage Option Is Offered Due To Size/Weight. Sorry. Condition: Used - But Near New. Can still smell the fresh American Oak! Purchased these from Edward who was a great help in selection of the these speakers. But they are a little oversized in the smaller room. I think they would suit a larger room where they can breath and do their magic down to 32hz. No real need for a sub, but as usual, a sub is best! I have been running these on a Yamaha HTR 2071 (cheap) and also Cambridge Audio integrated amp. AXR100. As they are easy to power, both work a treat, so you don't need expensive high powered equipment to run these. I have never used a valve amp, but these are of course suitable for that duty also. Details: Valve series prototype V1062AQTL 2-way efficient floor standing speakers Size: 1020H x 300W x 225D 8 ohms 140wrms 94dB 1W/1M (easy to power with receivers 5.1 etc.) 32Hz - 30kHz /- 2db with short hybrid transmission line bass load and smooth series crossover design, in American Oak veneered cabinet.
