  1. I am seeking help in choosing between subwoofers principally for a music centred system. That means the subwoofer should be seen rather than heard. I live close to Lifestyle Store, N Parramatta and generally buy through them (they don't stock B&W). I am trying to avoid models that take up huge amounts of floor space and weight a tonne. Amplifier: Devialet 220. Mac user (NO Windows-based computer available for room calibrations, important as some makers offer calibration systems that are Windows only). WIll probably add a second sub much later down the track. The models I'm considering: 1. B&W DB1D Dual 12" It is remarkably compact and not unduly heavy. W 429 x D 410mm. 43kg. Form factor is just perfect (perhaps a touch too good to be true)! Maximum output from Class D amplifier 2000W. Continuous RMS output not stated by the maker (presumably about 1200W). Has auto set-up/room calibration via iPhone app allowing equilisation of different frequency ranges to achieve a flat response, control room nodes. Easier to coordinate low pass filter of the subwoofer with high pass filter on the Devialet eg can set the value at an exact figure. Upgraded model from the previous DB1, which was a Stereophile Class A product (for all that is worth). Not a recognised subwoofer maker. 2. REL Serie S 212/SE Dual 12" Much bigger and heavier. W446 x D507mm. 55kg. At the limit of size/weight tolerance. Really tall at 816mm but REL does this to bring up the sound closer to head height. Universally praised for its seamless integration with music systems coming from a well-respected subwoofer specialist. Class D amplifier: 1000W RMS continuous output, 1700W maximum output (very similar to the B&W). Less expensive than the DB1D by about $1k. No auto set-up/room calibration to control room nodes, but the addition of a second sub might control this better than equalisation anyway (?). Heavier cabinet probably means better resonance control. Can't set low pass filter at an exact figure (has to be done by ear) to match high pass filter on the Devialet amp. Yes, it has the "High Level Input" design to help it blend into the main speakers better (but it is more spaghetti and how much of a difference does it really make?) [3. Rel G-2 10" Reference Subwoofer At W509 x D611mm, it is getting beyond my size tolerance even if it's lighter at 38kg. Why does REL have to make its models sprawl out flat along the floor like this for you to trip over? Add in lack of room calibration and it is out of contention, though a single 10" model may have cleaner bass than a dual 12" model] n.b. frequency response ratings from manufacturers ignored for being unreliable. No independent measurements available for any of these models. B&W stated frequency response range is particularly spurious as the same value is stated for ALL of their models, and is thought to be an equalised value. Frequency response from rival dual 12" models is likely to be similar. Both the N Parra store and a certain Castle Hill HiFi store keep pushing me towards a REL. The Castle Hill stockist of B&W and REL subs said he'd much rather sell me a pair of REL Rel Serie S S/5 SHO 12" subs than a B&W DB1d! But is a REL so inherently superior in its design that it is worthwhile putting up with the larger form factor and lack of auto setup/room calibration? Yes, you are supposed to audition them. But the difference in the audition room acoustics and overall system setup vs. that at home make meaningful comparison extremely difficult. Even if a seller does stock both REL and B&W, it doesn't mean they have all of these specific models in store for an A-B comparison.
  2. A beautifully-made and good-looking headphone, less costly now at many locations. The major downside is a somewhat hollow sound from a lower-mids emphasis - looking inside the earcups I think I see why. Excellent with EQ due to the high-quality drivers and build. http://www.hifiheadphones.co.uk/community/threads/b-w-px-anc-bluetooth-headphone-review.4545/

  5. Item: B&W HTM62 S1 Center Speaker Location: Perth Price: $150 Item Condition: Used Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Ideal match for B&W 685, 684 and 683 S1 speakers. Perfect operational condition. Tweeter dust cap was pushed in by a child, cap has been carefully drawn back out, though minor creases are still visible. No audible difference, cosmetic only. Pictures:
  6. Item: B&W Nautilus 803 Floor-standing Speakers in Cherry Location: Melbourne Price: $4400 ONO. Originally bought for about $10K. Item Condition: Drivers and performance perfect. Enclosures ok overall. Would have been excellent except for dents shown in photos. One speaker has several I would describe as medium size, the other has less and smaller size dents, not visible from a distance. Reason for selling: Selling for a friend who has upgraded to $40K speakers. Payment Method: Cash, Bank Transfer or Paypal. Extra Info: Warm sounding speakers with very musical midrange and plenty of bass. Attractive appearance in glowing cherry finish. Highly desirable option for a B&W fan at this price. Pickup only at this stage as there is no original packaging. The Nautilus tweeters would be hard to protect, except by careful removalists with blankets rather than cartons. I would also prefer to show the dents to a prospective buyer. They wouldn't put me off, but safer to show someone exactly what they'd be getting. Pictures:

Current system: B&W CM5s Audiolab 8200MB Cambridge 851N Also have a Sansui AU-777 sitting on the sidelines! Music interests: Pretty wide, primarily rock/metal... especially Tool & Marilyn Manson!

  8. Item: Bowers and Wilkins 685s2 speakers and STAV24 stands Location: Reservoir, Vic Price: $750 700 Item Condition: excellent Reason for selling: Have upgraded Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: Speakers and stands are in excellent condition. I've lost one of the bridge plates as shown in the pictures and one of the little pins that secure the mesh has been snapped off also.The bridge plate can be replaced by a bit of speaker cable and the mesh still sits snugly on the speaker as there are still 3 pins securing it. Speakers and stands have been well cared for. They're a fantastic speaker for this price! Pictures:
  9. Item: B&W CM6 S2 Speakers (satin white) & Matching Stands Location: Tennyson Brisbane Price: $2200.00 Item Condition: 9.9/10 Reason for selling: To many speakers Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Hard to let these go, but new arrivals mean they have to..... Lots of online info if you are not familiar with them. From a personal point of view these are right up there with the best bookshelf speakers I have owned and their real strengths are detail & sound stage. Grills are magnetic attachment which is nice as it leaves the fronts 'blemish' free when removed. Owned from new and I have the boxes for both the speakers and stands so can ship Australia wide at buyers' expense. Can be demo'd in Tennyson, Brisbane. Stands come with both metal spikes and rubber insulator 'domes' and the speakers can be attached to the stands by the factory fasteners. The CM6 S2 has been replaced by the B&W 705 speakers that sell (RSP) for $3499 + $899 for the stands, so this set is basically half the price of buying the new version. Tech info: Drivers: 1 x 25mm aluminium dome tweeter, 1 x 165mm Kevlar cone bass/midrange Crossover: 4000Hz Frequency response: 50-28kHz ±3dB; 45-50kHz -6dB Impedance: 8 ohms (min 3.7) Sensitivity: 88dB (2.83V/1m) Power handling: 30-120 watts unclipped (recommended amplifier power) Cabinet: Bass reflex (rear port) Dimensions (hwd): 403 x 200 x 285mm Weight (each): 8.9kg Pictures:

  12. Item: Bowers & Wilkins HTM1D Centre Speaker Location: Perth Price: $5000 Item Condition: Used Reason for selling: No longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: Quite possibly one of the biggest and baddest Centre channels you’ll ever find. It’s quite rare to see these for sale, especially in Oz. The HTM1D is the largest of four centre speakers in the 800 Series. The full configuration of FSTTM midrange in a Marlan® sphere / tube ‘head’ with diamond dome tweeter on top is used, so that the system perfectly voice matches either the 800D, 801D or 802D in a substantial and powerful multi-channel installation. The HTM1D uses three 8” diameter Rohacell® cone drivers with twin rear-firing FlowportsTM. All drivers are, of course, magnetically shielded to avoid picture distortion with CRT-based screens. The HTM1D is specifically intended to be mounted on the floor, its low profile allowing a large projection screen to come within 2 ft. of the floor. Supplied with the system are four heavy-duty height-adjustable feet. This design allows up to 1.6” of vertical adjustment so that the speaker may be tilted back to face more towards the listeners. They have a case hardened spike at one end for carpeted floors, and a non-marking rubber pad on the other for more vulnerable surfaces. http://bwgroupsupport.com/downloads/specsheets/bw/HTM1D InfoSheet.pdf Pictures:

Item: Speaker Stands Location: Mosman Price: 140 Item Condition:used Reason for selling:NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal as friend, COD Only Extra Info: Great, sturdy stands worthy of your high end stand-mounts. Good condition, no marks/chips come with spikes but used with felt matting which I've left on. Pictures:
  14. Item: Bowers & Wilkins CM10 S2 gloss black Location: Newport, VIC Price: $3,200 Item Condition: 9/10 (only because I do not have the original boxes) Reason for selling: Speaker upgrade Payment Method: Cash at pickup Extra Info: Considering selling my B&W CM10 S2s.

Item: B&W P5 Wireless Headphones Location: Mansfield QLD Price: $298 Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Bank Transfer Extra Info: One thing has long been missing from wireless headphones: great sound quality.

  17. Item: Bowers and Wilkins PV1D Subwoofer Location: Melbourne Price: $950 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: NLR due to a change of amp. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I've owned this sub from new and it's in excellent condition. It comes complete with all the original accessories plus I've added an Neutrik XLR4 connector to the high level cable which allows you to disconnect the sub without having to unscrew the amp speaker terminals which preserves the cable. Unfortunately I no longer have the original box. If you're reading this I'm sure you know but the PV1D is a very musical sub which can easily be configured to match to a wide variety of speakers. It is beautifully made with an excellent amount of power and a small footprint. Pictures:
  18. Item: B&W 802D Floorstanding Speakers in beautiful Rosenut finish Location: Melbourne Price: Reduced to $8700 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Selling for friend who moved into smaller room Payment Method: Cash, Bank Transfer or Paypal Extra Info: If you're after this model you're unlikely to ever get a better pair at this price. Iconic 800 Series speakers in terms of their appearance as well as performance, originally around $23K. These are a true bargain for the B&W lover. I'm told that apart from cosmetics, the only acoustic change to the 802D2 was a minor change in tweeters. Some even prefer them to the latest 802D3, which if available used, would probably cost over $10K more. Happy to demonstrate perfect working order, but pickup only as there is no original packing. I can supply ultra thick removalist blanket for local collection with a private vehicle, safer as well as cheaper than a courier. I appreciate that interstate members are interested in this model but wary of transport. I'm happy to help at my end and suggest transport request for travelling members via SNA forum, or if collection at a later date I'm able to store. All drivers including Diamond tweeters are in PERFECT condition. Extra photos just added.
  19. Item: B&W DM302 bookshelf speakers and CC3 centre speaker. Location: Sydney Price: 150 Item Condition: Used Reason for selling: Moving/Downsizing Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD Only Extra Info: The plastic veneer on the 2 bookshelf speakers has shrunk a little ( the previous owner ) and 4 screw holes in the back of each which might not be too pleasing to some people, I didn’t mind as I was more interested in how they sounded. The centre speaker is fine with only a few scuff marks on it, I thought that I could hang on to them and put timber veneer on the 302’s at least as the vinyl veneer does’nt do them justice. Speaker stands not included. Donation to SNA once sold..... Pictures:
  20. Item: B&W CM8 speakers (pair) B&W CM5 speakers (pair) with stands B&W CM Centre speaker B&W M1 speakers (pair) Integra DTA-70.1 Amp Integra DTR-30.4 AV Cables Location: South Perth Price: Respective to the above items; CM8 - $500 CM5 - $300 Centre - $200 M1 - $100 Amp - $500 AV - $100 Cables - $0 (free), although I think they cost me a fortune as they're gold/braided. I know I paid over $8K for these items originally. Item Condition: As new Reason for selling: Don't listen to it enough, Too many cables. Payment Method: Pickup at South Perth, i don't have any boxes or packaging material. Extra Info: Had these items for 5-7 years but unfortunately they just sat as furniture pieces most of the time. My partner and I are currently decluttering the place. Will sell individually at the above prices or everything for $1K. Priced to sell. Can take more photos if required. Pictures:

  25. Item: B&W C5 Headphones Location: Mansfield QLD Price: $149 Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Bank Transfer Extra Info: Everything from the packaging of these C5 in-ears to the literature gently whispers ‘premium’.
