A completely new direction for me, so I'm starting a new thread. Adding this to the old thread did not make sense. Said I'd stay away from valve pwr amps; and had reservations about horns, but stuff comes up and I made a change to what I never envisaged. It sounds good, but still more changes to come. From Magneplanar 20.7 to Trio XD. From AVM MA 8.2 to AR Ref 160M. From Koetsu Onyx to Ortofon MC Anna. The Onyx had a low output resulting in the phonostage running out of gain on the MG20.7. The MC Anna has even lower output, but luckily the change to Trio XD gives me plenty of gain to easily cover the low output of the MC Anna. For over two decades I have not been happy with my analog set up. It has under performed. I think I needed to use a step up transformer for the Onyx and have the Onyx retipped by Koetsu. With the MC Anna I love my analog sound. The Trio is not flat to 100hz. The REL does not go much above 120hz. We have a problem Houston. No midbass in the current setup. I've been moving the subs around, but there is no cure for component limitations. (See Later, I changed Trio setup). These pictures are ugly, but I'm an audiophile not a bloomin' home decorator. The setup is Ortofon MC Anna on Graham 1.5t on Aura tt. AR ph8 phonostage. AR Ref 6 preamp. AR Ref 160M pwr amp. Trio XD maiin speakers. REL 212se subs. Cables are Audioquest and Synergistic Research. Two dedicated 20A circuits and 2 dedicated 15A circuits. Custom fuses on any component that needs them. They do reduce noise floor.

Item: Azurahorn Ah-160 Midbass horns Location: Melbourne Price: $550 negotiable Item Condition: Good for age. Reason for selling: Taking up huge amounts of space. Present audio room is way to small for these Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD Only Extra Info: Up for sale is my Azura Ah-160 mid bass horns. These mid bass horns have given me the best lower midrange through mid bass I have heard. The fibreglass horns resonated quite a bit when i first got them so over a couple of years i put layer after layer of bitumen on them which improved the sound hugely (I got that idea from Goto with they're midrange and mid bass horns). It took forever for the bitumen to dry hence the huge amount of application time. They retail for $1200 new and then you have to pay the shipping, put on mounting plates, a rear chamber and ideally damp the mid bass and then paint them. This has all been done ready to bolt the drivers in. They are cut to a 4 inch throat to suit a 8 inch driver (same compression ratio and driver type as Avantgarde use in the Trio. I have built a system that allows you to change the compression chamber size at the back of the horn. If you wished to use them with a different sized driver (like a Western Electric style 555 compression driver or larger) you could get Azurahorn to sell you a extension piece. Some people on the net have used these horns with the Avantgarde Duo for huge improvements to the sound (and near Avantgarde Trio sound). They take up a huge amount of space (they are almost one metre in diameter so they just fit through a doorway). They were originally gold in colour (using various metal powders and wax) but are presently in a more discreet Charcoal chalky type finish. The rim needs a little touch up due to being in the garage a couple of years (I have more of the spray paint so can do this if required). Useable response (depending on driver and position) is 60 hz (shoved hard into room corners) through to about 100 - 140 hz or so in free space. I was crossing these over at 700-900 hz but many recommend using them to about 1100 hz. I have some 8 inch Coral drivers I can provide cheap with these if needed. I was using the Corals with these before switching to the Fane as used by Romy the Cat in his Upgraded Avantgarde Trio Midbass horns. The Corals sound excellent in this mid bass horn. Almost as good as the Fane but less efficient. The Fane drivers have been sold and are not available. Local pickup strongly preferred due to the obvious size and weight issues. Otherwise you would have to arrange your own shipping. Priced them cheap for a quick sale. LPG Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
