  5. I've visited a couple of members here in Perth and noticed that they have great setups for working. I have four benches for various work, woodwork and welding benches are the tidiest. I am a bit ashamed of my Electronics bench so here are pics. Hopefully others will join in and post about their workroom or bench area. As you can see not a lot of space. Time to get a few projects finished, now that "Fast, Cheap and Loud" is done I might have to move onto some TT'sDriver and general parts shelves and Ikea draws for componentsNext is the TT shelf, these are the immediately do-able the rest are in the container. Whenever my Daughters come to visit they want to tidy up and offer their advice.
  6. Hi peeps, I've got a question and I'm not sure if this is the right place to post it. I've got a pair of monoblocks that sit on the bottom shelf of my rack. Due to my 7 month old starting to crawl around and the missus not letting me use a shock collar on our baby I have decided to not use the rack for a while. I am moving all my bits of hifi and the tv onto two Ikea expedit shelves we have. So my question is how much space do I need to leave around my amps for cooling/ventilation? They are class A amps and do run hot on a good day. My amp measures W-280mm, D-280mm, H-110mm. The shelf space is W-335mm, D-390mm, H-335mm. Is it a good/bad idea to move my amps into the shelves?
  7. I have recently returned to vinyl after finding my old 80s collection . I have many different pressings old , new and imports. My biggest problem is the differance in sound quality . Having just purchased new,The Foo Fighters - Sonic Highways and it sounds very fuzzy and pitchy mainly on vocals ,making it hard to enjoy. On the other hand I have albums that sound brilliant . Some off the older albums I have purchased do not have a mark on them but sound horrible . Is it all about the pressing (recordings) or is it my system ? I am using the following. Rega RP1 turntable with a Cambridge 551p phono pre amp. Amp, Sony Str dg820, run on analogue 2 channel stereo mode. Speakers are , LSA2 ( Living Sound Audio) imported from the USA I would like to buy a 2 channel Amp. Would this make it sound any better ?
  8. G'day I currently have a Yamaha RXV1900 with a Panasonic Blueray Player. I have Chord Silver Stream Speaker Cable and a Chord Crimson VEE Interconnect. I'm thinking of adding a Cambridge Azur BD752 Player or the Yamaha CD-S1000. I love my blueray movies as I have recently purchased a Samsung 9000 Series Curved 65inch TV. I also love listening to my music which I do through my New VAF DC7 Speakers. I love the Yamaha RXV1900 and I'm not looking at changing just yet. So recommendations with my set up and my cable selection would be great. I need help and guidance in which way to proceed. 😊 Any help would be Awesome . Thanks Dougy
  9. .....casually strolling in to the scrapyard to have a look for some interesting bits for my metal sculptures And I see this. :blink: At a glance it appeared to be mostly old walkie talkies, radio gear etc. Of course i had to pull everything out to see what was lurking underneath... And came home with this:
  10.

  13. Item: Handcrafted Hawthorne SSI Trio's + Bel Canto eVo 2 Pair + Custom Built Marchand Crossover Location: Kingaroy Price: $9,500 (RRP Over $15,000) Item Condition: Near Perfect Reason For Selling: Looking to upgrade to the new reference model Payment Method: Cash on Pickup Preferred, Paypal(3% fee) or Bank Deposit Also Accepted Extra Info: These are a one-of-a-kind, and I will sorely miss them, but hopefully they go to a good home and hopefully I am not making a big mistake by moving them (And the Impossible to find Bel Cantos with them..) Included with the speakers will be a pair of Gen2 eVo2 Bel Canto Amps to run the bass section. There is also a pair of Marchand XM46 Hand Built Crossovers, designed specifically for these speakers, for high/pass low pass, allowing the use of any full range amp on the top or bottom, and allowing for no end of experimentation. Within the crossovers is a 10db of gain control so you can alter top/bottom end balance. These are large heavy speakers and I do not currently have any packaging for them. I can at buyers expense build some shipping crates after purchase if given a little time to do so . There are also the original 3-point spikes for easy balancing on any floor and supreme stability, but the polished granite stands pictured are also included, which make a considerable improvement especially on floating floors. If sold for the asking price I will also include the Nordost Super Flatline Cables for the Coax drivers and a $100 Donation will be made to SNA. I think an audition is really quite necessary to see what these lovely creatures are capable of, and after work any day or pretty much any weekend works for me, feel free to bring along any amps if you'd like to hear your own running the top end!
  14. Just putting an idea out here to see if it generates any interest. I'm currently very light on disposable income but I seem to have a few components that are additional to my immediate needs so I was wondering if anyone else was in the same boat and willing to swap (either on a temporary or permanent basis) something with me to keep the hobby interesting. Obviously discussions should take place and pictures of the pieces of gear involved should be taken and exchanged prior to any actual deals being entered into, etc, etc... but just for now does anyone have any interest to express in any of the following components, and, hopefully, anything interesting (and by interesting I don't just mean integrated amps ) to swap for them. One Burson PRE-160 One Burson PP-160 One Thule Spirit 100 cd player One Exposure Classic 21 preamp (line level only) One Exposure Classic 28 power amp (dual mono) Two Perreaux Silhouette SX60 monoblocks (tiny little 60wpc monoblocks) One Cambridge Audio Azure 550T AM/FM tuner One Consonance C1 Integrated amp One Myryad MI120 integrated amp And last but not least One QLS QA-100 Power DAC/Integrated amp (on loan) I'm open to selling any of the above in the old fashioned way as well (ie for cash) but since I've already tried that on most of them I thought I'd give this idea a go. Cheers, and a happy new year to all and sundry!
  15. Quick question, is the Marantz AV7005 the same as the SR7005 (apart from the amp section)? I have a seperate power amp so i dont really need the amp section. I have found the AV7005 for about $1450 and the SR7005 for $1250 (refurbished) or about $1650 ex dispay. What are the differences of the 2 units and can they be found cheaper than the prices i have listed? And what does the SR7007 have besides 4K upscaling compared to the 7005's? Thanks in advance, Heath.
  16. I recall a little while ago someone said words to the effect of "mosfets have no place in high end amplifiers". Knowing several manufacturers use Mosfets in their high end amp designs (Perreaux being just one that springs to mind) I just thought I would ask why. What is it they do or don't do that makes people love or hate them?
