  1. Item: Martini absorb XHD100 and HD100 Location: Melbourne, Burwood East Price: $250 per XHD pack and $180 per HD pack Item Condition: brand new in packaging Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: part of my hallway clearance sale!, pickup only Purchased too many packs and so have one pack of XHD100 and one pack of HD100 both in black. Each pack has 3 pieces, each piece is 2400mm high x 1200mm wide x 100mm thick. The XHD is quite rigid and will easily stand by itself. The HD will stand well enough if leaning against the wall. These work well as broadband acoustic absorbers and are fairly easy to cut. The beige coloured absorbers in the photo are also for sale in a separate ad. Pictures:
  2. Item: DIY acoustic panels Location: Melbourne, Burwood East Price: $25 each x 4 Item Condition: good Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: part of my hallway clearance sale!, pick up only These are basic broadband acoustic absorbers I made with pine frames and beige calico fabric. You could easily recover them with what ever colour fabric you like. They contain high density fibreglass insulation, from memory it contains 2 layers, 50mm 96kg/m3 insulation and 50mm 48kg/m3 insulation. The pine frame provides a 50mm air gap when sitting against a wall. They are 1260mm high x 605mm wide x 150mm deep overall. Pictures:
  3. Item: 4x Rockwool Acoustic Panels + 3x Superchunk Bass Traps Location: Coburg North, VIC Price: Panels $200 for all 4, Bass Traps $50 each for the bigger two, $40 for the smaller one. $300 the lot. Item Condition: These are DIY panels but I would strongly argue out perform most panels I have used in studios etc having a sound engineering background. The panels contain Rockwool acoustic batts and the bass traps are filled with higher density insulation. They have lightweight wooden frames and are covered in calico at present. They have the odd mark here and there on them for storage. You could easily cover them with fabric of your choice to suit your room though if required. Dimensions are as follows: Panels: 600 x 1198 x 70mm Small bass trap: 400 x 400 x 790mm Large bass traps: 400 x 400 x 997mm . More than happy to demonstrate their efficacy in my Hi-Fi room to genuine buyers. Reason for selling: No longer record at home. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Pictures:
  4. Item: Vicoustic Black Wavewood acoustic treatment panels. Location: QLD Brisbane Price: $60 each, RRP $1250 for pack of 10. I have 5 black wavewoods available for purchase. Item Condition: excellent on the front, were previously glued to the wall, see photos for the rear which is not seen once they’re installed. Reason for selling: didn’t need these final panels. Using 13 vicoustic panels in my setup now. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Dimensions: Panels are 600mm square with a depth of approx 60mm. The can also be put in the corner of a room to act as a bass trap from Vicoustic. I have the original box of postage is needed, likely not cheap but box measurements are; L - 640mm W - 640mm H - 340mm ( cut down to fit 5 panels ) H - 640mm ( not cut down ) Extra Info: DC2’s in first photo next to the wavewoods are not for sale.
  5. Hello, Need everyone’s help. Im moving into my new appartment later this year and am trying to organise speaker placement and acoustic treatment for my room. I have 5-6m wide and only 3.4m deep to work with, it’s not ideal. Ceilings are 2.7m high. Running B&w nautilus 802 with current classe delta model amps. Any suggestions on how I should treat the room besides a carpet. Cheers chris
  6. I've got some ideas for the corners and ceiling that I'm reasonably comfortable with, but for the side walls, there's no clear solution that's jumping out to me. I spent the last weekend DIYing 6 frames that are 80cm x 120cm x 11cm, and want a 10cm air gap behind them. Ideally, the solution would: Not involve too much work (e.g. mounting four brackets per panel * six panels * four screws per bracket = nearly a hundred screws, which seems a bit tedious for a non-carpenter like me) Not be too unsightly (you'll see the side profile upon entering the room) Allow for some flexibility in placement once installed Be easily removable if necessary Not be too expensive (keeping it under $200 would be good) Be sturdy/low risk of dropping While it would be good if I could hit all of the above goals and it's what I'll be aiming for, I don't expect that I will get them all. The 'best' system I've come up with so far: Screw a hang track into the wall studs (horizontally, one piece for three panels: https://www.bunnings.com.au/flexi-storage-1800mm-white-hang-track_p2660962) Hang slotted wall strips from the hang track (vertically, two pieces for each panel: https://www.bunnings.com.au/flexi-storage-762mm-white-double-slot-wall-strip_p2660951) Hang two double slot brackets on each wall strip (https://www.bunnings.com.au/flexi-storage-120mm-white-double-slot-bracket_p2583641) Find some way to secure the panels to those double slot brackets (each panel is held up by four double slot brackets) In case this is not intuitive enough a description, see dodgy diagram below: Only thing is that I don't really know how I would secure the brackets to the supporting bars on the panel. Otherwise, this mostly hits my criteria. Alternatively, I could hang each panel like a picture frame, and place a spacer behind each panel (or attach the spacer to the panel). This seems like a rather inelegant solution though, and doesn't allow for lateral repositioning without putting more holes in wall. If anyone has any input on the above ideas (ways to improve or overlooked flaws), or have alternate solutions, please share. I'm hoping to possibly do this this coming weekend, though if no good ideas come to mind, I might just do the corners and/or ceiling instead and postpone these until the following weekend. Thanks! Some extra pictures of last weekend's job, still to be covered with fabric (and maybe painted black first).

  9. Hi guys, I am thinking of treating my room. Now, this poses at least two problems: 1. I do not have a dedicated room, this is my living room so it has to look pretty otherwise you know what wife will do (#divorce) 2. My living room/kitchen is my only option and acoustically has possibly all the problems in the world (see photo). Moving furniture around is NOT an option. Big window as side wall (as big as the whole wall), which at least does not vibrate as it is pretty heavy. Floor Boards with rug. Low gyp-rock ceiling. Massive wall-mounted TV behind speakers. Heavily Asymmetrical. I did not do any measurements and if possible I'd rather avoid doing so. I am after some advice for a first-pass acoustic treatment to get rid of echo which I can hear when I clap my hands and excessive reflections which turn music into a bit of a shouting blob at high volumes. I saw this and thought it looks pretty enough: https://www.turramusic.com.au/pages/CatalogueItem.aspx?CIID=5067 I could treat front wall (side of TV behind speakers) and back wall, plus keep one/two large panels under the sofa and lean it/these against the window to cover the point of first reflection when I do critical listening. If strictly necessary, I could even put a couple on the ceiling. I would not use any bass traps/corners because they are ugly and would never be approved. I would try and fix the excessive reflection first (resulting in glare, messed up sounds at higher volumes), then maybe I could throw in a DRC to control bass modes digitally. My question is what do you think? Worth the cash investment? Would you suggest a different type of absorbing/diffusing panels? Oh, I do have planar speakers (which I slide off the wall for critical listening) and a pair of bookshelves (just to make things easier). Any word of advice that are not "buy a new house" or "move to headphones" or "divorce from your wife" would be greatly appreciated. cheers
  10. Item: Crafter TC 035/N Acoustic/Electric Guitar + Hardcase and Stand Location: Canberra Price: $500 $380 Item Condition: Perfect Reason for selling: Need money for boring stuff like food. Payment Method: Cash, Paypal Extra Info: This is, in my opinion, the best sounding guitar you can purchase for less than $1200.00 new. It's beautifully put together and is a joy to play. This particular one has had very little use (because I have no spare time these days), and is in as-new condition. It was purchased here in Australia, and my receipt tells me that I paid $699 for the guitar (which is an absolute bargin for the sound(!) -- RRP is $899 though most places have it cheaper). Also included is a Crafter hardcase (which cost me $120), and a Hercules auto-gripping stand (which cost me $50). The guitar has a solid englemann spruce top, Indian rosewood back and sides, mother of pearl inlays, a mahogany neck, an Indian rosewood fingerboard, and a L.R. Baggs LR-T Preamp with an onboard tuner and element U.S.T pickup. It will need to be collected, as shipping would be prohibatively expensive. Pictures:
  11. * Item : 4 Acoustic Elegance 18" Dipole WOOFERS + BRAND NEW PAIR OF HYPEX NCORE NC400 MONOBLOCKS (Inc. Two 8' quasi-balanced RCA to XLR Canare Star Quad, Neutrik gold RCA, Neutrik gold XLR). * Location: Glen Iris, VIC * Item condition: All items Brand New, unused, just received in Oct-Nov 2013 * Price : $2200 for Dipoles, $1800 for amps. Buyer covers cost of shipping and paypal fees of 3% * Reason for selling: Not needed due to change of direction. * Payment Methods: Paypal, Cash - Pickup, or Australia Post COD. * Extra Info: $50 donation to SNA. Invoices available for all items. * Pics coming later as items are at a friends place for open baffle build. My loss is your gain. Brand new unused items (amps were turned on and tried once to make sure they work - and they do) with all invoices/paperwork. Was going to use open baffle bass with my GOTO horn system but have decided on a change of direction. Cost of Dipoles landed is circa $2900! These are rare beasts! Think AE woofers on the Kyron speakers at the recent Melbourne Hi-Fi show which were 15", these move a lot more air. Amps are black, professionally built and have laser engraving of Ncore on the front. If you are looking at these items, you likely already know what they are.
  12. Good morning … just a quick introduction … well probably long and rambling if the truth be known ! I've spent over 35 years in the music industry, as a recording engineer, studio designer, commercial and domestic installer/system designer, and most recently, vinyl record cutter. I've never been musical in the "read, write & perform" sense, but have a deep appreciation of music, and how music & "sound" can affect us physiologically and emotionally. That's led to a bit of a life long quest: To get that special "musicality" out of each and every audio system. To more than adequately recover the beauty, detail, weight and musicality of every performance for the benefit of our very hearts and souls. If I had an official title, and should the word even exist, I'd be an "acoustician" first and foremost, having realised many years ago, that the room is actually part of the system. With that in mind, as well as system components and their optimization I practice optimization on the room itself, and room acoustic qualities (or down falls !) I hope I can assist some members grappling with "boomy bass" and "floppy bottom" isues .... Karl.

Item: Polymax 100mm XHD100 Acoustic blanket - 7 pieces Location: Adelaide Price: $150 per sheet Item Condition: Brand new, still in the manufacturer's wrapping Reason for selling: Not needed Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: http://www.polymaxinsulation.com.au/downloads/Polymax_MDS_Absorb_Data_Sheet.pdf This is some of the best acoustic blanket you can get. It's made out of recycled drink bottles, so no itch. You can possibly purchase cheaper in Sydney, but you then have to pay the transport.
