  2. Looking for some advice on new speakers please. I thought I had it all figured out until I read an article on Darko's site by Srajan Ebaen http://www.digitalaudioreview.net/2014/02/kih-6-loading-the-room/%C2'> I've been saving up for some floorstanding speakers at around $3K, probably second hand. They will go in a surround system, but my real focus for sound quality is for two channel, not surround. I currently don't have a sub but am also looking to add one of those, probably about $1K, e.g. SVS SB2000. My room is about 7m x 5m x 2.7m (22x16x9 feet), with lots of hard surfaces and few opportunities for treatments. I have a young family, so moderate listening levels will be the reality 95% of the time. I listen to a wide range of music, but folk, rock, blues would be a good ball park. Using RRPs, one example might be Kef R500 ($3,700) vs. Kef R300 ($2,600) + SVS SB2000 ($1,000). So will I be more likely to get better sound from floorstanders or standmounts plus sub? Pros and cons of each set-up? Thanks Corey
  3. Hi new here to the forum, After many months of COVId19 enforced WFH, I've gotten the itch to improve my home office setup. Ive mainly been into IEMs in the past, and own universal AAW w900, flc8s, dunu titans. I tend to prefer neutralish signatures with good bass texture and natural soundstage. My budget is around $1000 and tossing up between either some desktop speakers or open backed headphones. (Including DAC/amp) My office is pretty small at about 3m by 3m so any speaker would have to be placed fairly close to the wall. Any suggestions for setups? I prefer the sound of speakers, but with my budget and room I'm thinking a midfi rig (like a Sundara or 2nd hand AFO + dx3) might be a better option.
  4. Further information: These speakers were purchased new from Greg Osborn in Feb 2020. In May I bought them from the original buyer (who bought a different pair of Osbornes due to change of listening situation). The Titans are wonderful speakers. As someone fairly new to hifi they introduced me to audiophile quality and I had many a goosebump listening to them. However, going by Greg’s advice, I don't believe I can get the most from them in my small cluttered listening space (bedroom used as media/music room) where I also have to position them on the long wall. They need a moderate sized room or above to breathe. And while my eye was caught by the stunning value, my other components are not yet near the level where I can realise their potential, so I think they are better off with someone who can. I will play around with other options for now. Check out Greg’s website for info. I also have available the 3m Osborn cables for biwiring them. No box, printed manual included.

  5. Further information: For sale are my beloved Harbeths. Condition: Good. There is a scratch on the top of one speaker and on one the stands there are two scratches. Please see photos. Functionally, the speakers have worked flawlessly. Purchase history: Purchased second hand from fellow SNA member approx. one year ago. Age: unknown. Included: All original boxes, literature and spikes for stands (not shown). RRP: $6000+900 (approx.) Specs: Transducer system: 200mm Harbeth RADIAL™ bass/midrange; 25mm ferr-cooled soft dome tweeter Frequency response: 50Hz - 20kHz +/-3dB, free-space, grille on, smooth off-axis response Impedance: 6 ohms, easy to drive Sensitivity: 85dB/1W/1m. Addit: see stereophile review. Measured about 87dB if that matters. Amplifier suggestion: suggested from 25W. Addit: I've used this with my First Watt F7 and an Ayre AX7e. Both great. Power handling: 150W programme Dimensions: 460 x 277 x 275mm (+12mm for grille and binding posts) Finish: Cherry Weight: 11.6kg each without packing Reviews: On top audio https://www.on-mag.fr/index.php/topaudio/tests-auditions/13555-audition-privee-enceintes-harbeth-hl5-plus-p3esr-et-monitor-30-1-chez-high-end-audio 6 moons http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/harbeth5/1.html The absolute sound http://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/preview-harbeth-monitor-301-loudspeaker/ Aushifi https://www.avhub.com.au/product-reviews/hi-fi/harbeth-302-anniversary-loudspeakers-review-test-496810 New audiophile http://www.new-audiophile.com/ Stereophile https://www.stereophile.com/content/harbeth-monitor-302-40th-anniversary-edition-loudspeaker Steve Guttenberg https://harbeth.co.uk/hifi-speaker/5/www.cnet.com/uk/audiophiliac/ Photos:
  6. Item: 2.1 bookshelf/sub setup for home office. Price Range: Up to $500 Item Condition: Used Extra Info: Flexible around brand/model, just want something that will sound nicer (with a flatter frequency response) than my 18 year old Logitech HTIB system. No fancy features in amp/receiver required, I'd be happy with stereo 3.5mm analog or optical (SPDIF) in. Sub is optional, but I do like deep bass so if no sub, then speakers that can go lower than 45Hz would be required. Location: Adelaide preferred so I can audition.
  7. A spare pair of Q Acoustics Concept 20 that I no longer require. They were only used as rear speakers, mounted on the matching stands (I am keeping the stands) Very good to excellent condition. Very faint/light swirls from dusting down with a microfibre cloth, but only noticeable if you are looking for them. Will be shipped in the original box, wrapped in the usual Q Acoustics microfibre bags. Hopefully someone will get some enjoyment out of these killer bookshelves.
  8. Item: B&W 805 D3 Price Range: 4000 - 4500 Item Condition: Used Extra Info: Looking for a pair of 805D3 in excellent condition.
  9. Further information: These came with a high quality micro system (no longer around). When I acquired the system Sony UK had a it's own hifi design studio and I was led to believe the system, including these speakers, was designed there (they were assembled in Taiwan). These are robust bookshelves, heavy for their size (27 X 28 X 16 cm). They have approx 15cm kevlar woofer and a domed tweeter. Ported at the back (top) they also have quality binding posts. The front baffle is bevelled for strength and to improve sound dispersion, the tweeter is mounted in a cool looking molded 'wave-guide' type fitting. These are great speakers for all types of music particularly jazz, rock and female vocals. The bass will surprise you with control and depth. They can easily fill a small to medium size room. They were part of Sony's most expensive micro system (at the time). Given their condition and asking price they represent some fun value. Grills included but have some fade in patches, but leavethem off and relish the cool retro style! No marks or blemishes on cabinets or veneer. Posted at buyers expense.

  11. Further information: Dynaudio Contour S 1.4 Limited Edition in beautiful walnut. I am the first and only owner. Purchased locally in 2018 from Class A. The speakers have had an easy life driven with 150w amplifier. The Contour is a very capable speaker and I would suggest pairing them with at least 150w amplifier to get the most out of it. You can find many reviews online. I have all the original boxes for shipping. It does not have the foam port plug. For official specification, please refer to https://www.dynaudio.com/discontinued-models/contour-s/contour-s-14-le Dynaudio Stand 6 in black. I purchased this from a seller in Brisbane who bought it brand new, but never used. I've used it with the Contour and they look great together. Apparently you can sand fill it if you want it to be sturdier. There are some scratches from my recent move, and also paint flake caused by Smoegal - my robotic vacuum cleaner. I am still mad a Smoegal, but it does a great job cleaning the floor daily. Please refer to the photo for the marks and chip. Comes with original packaging. One thing missing is the floor protector for the spike. https://www.dynaudio.com/home-audio/accessories/stand-6/ I am not keen to split the items unless there is buyer for both at the same time.

  13. Item: Dynaudio Emit M20 (Pair) Location: Brisbane, Northside Price: $800 Item Condition: Perfect, As New Reason for selling: Have upgraded Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This pair of Dynaudio Emit M20's was bought new by me from The Audio Tailor here in Brisbane less than 12 months ago. They are satin black lacquered finish, in perfect condition and have never been abused - less than 100 hours use. I ended up deciding to upgrade after I upgraded my turntable - the wicked cycle of 'what's next' after an upgrade. These speakers have received multiple awards for their price point. Would prefer local pickup but can ship at buyers expense.
  14. Struggling to find a decent Bookshelf speaker under $1k (maybe able to go higher) Liked the specs on Q Acoustics 3030i https://www.stereo.net.au/news/q-acoustics-3030i-standmount-loudspeakers-now-available The ELAC DEBUT 2.0 B6.2 are not bad on paper too. What are my options to get anything better than 46Hz and higher than 130W?
  15. Item: ELAC BS 243.3 Bookshelf Speakers - black Location: Collingwood, Melbourne Price: 1,400, negotiable Item Condition: 10/10 Reason for selling: Raising funds Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: Picked up from Vinyl Revival in Fitzroy late last year (Nov), selling to raise some funds. I auditioned a few bookshelf speakers and found these to be the best sounding and looking of the ones I tried in the two weeks I spent in there auditioning! I've had these in my apartment and they fill the space beautifully, lovely to listen to in the background but can definitely deliver if asked to. I have had them hooked up to a Sonos AMP. The jet tweeter delivers a lot of detail in the highs and they sound like much larger speakers for the size. The build and finish are beautiful. Glossy black, and really cool looking under the grille. Bought for 1,995, selling for 30% off: https://web.archive.org/web/20190407073809/https://www.vinylrevival.com.au/collections/elac/products/elac-bs-243-2-bookshelf-pair Comes with original box and packaging.

  18. Item: Osborn F1 custom speakers Location: Clifton Hill, Vic Price: $200 Item Condition: Used, in good condition Reason for selling: not being used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Extra Info: Greg originally made these F1 speakers (Focal drivers) for us with a face plate only (open baffle). They were made so we could flush mount them as rear speakers in the wall. After not being used for a few years they were put into a box in as a spare set. These would make a good project for someone wanting to rebox them. Photos:
  19. Hi all I was lucky enough to get a home demo of the Contrast Audio Model One bookshelf speaker. Firstly the Bookshelf retails at $2,900, and is relatively small in size, but it does pack a punch! If I was to describe these speakers in the shortest possible way I would say "Agile, punchy, neutral and Accurate". At this price point I was very impressed. They are awesome for music that is dynamic and can handle even the most hectic fast paced metal music, whilst at the same time still sounding great with simple acoustic musical pieces. If you have a budget of >$3k and are looking for a bookshelf or compact speaker, this should be high up on your audition list and up for serious consideration. In my extensive auditioning of speakers I found them to go toe to toe with some options considerably more expensive from the likes of Dynaudio and others. Simply put, if you want an agile, dynamic and accurate performing bookshelf, check our the Contrast Audio Model One. PS: Reach out to them , they are lovely and helpful people and can be found here on the forums
  20. Item: Item: Dynaudio Emit M20 Satin Black Standmount Speakers Location: Tyagarah NSW Price: $650 [+$50 freight if required] Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Upgrade Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: These well regarded and awarded speakers are still the current model, lots of positive reviews online [see links below] that punch well above their price point [cheapest online is $1299 new ] Ive owned these for approx 2.5 years and have enjoyed them immensely, but the upgrade bug finally got me. Never driven hard they're in beautiful condition with one tiny cosmetic flaw which they came with, a slightly discoloured line on one woofer surround ring, not noticeable [for me] in everyday use [see last photo], grills also included. Pet and smoke free environment. I have the original styrofoam packing so happy to double box and send, or delivery to Gold Coast/ central Brisbane for a small fee a possibility. Any questions please ask http://www.hifiplus.com/articles/dynaudio-emit-m20-standmount-loudspeaker/ https://www.whathifi.com/dynaudio/emit-m20/review https://www.dynaudio.com/home-audio/emit/m20
  21. Item: Dali Zensor 1 Bookshelf Speakers with Stands Location: Balwyn, Vic Price: $160 incl metal stands Item Condition: Good some scuffing on one speaker *see below Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Extra Info: These speakers would make a great first foray into hifi for someone, or a desktop system. * The previous owner used these as rear speakers and has modded them so they can be wall mounted. They have a big sound and wide dispersion considering their size. Happy to demo.
  22. Item: Polk TSi100 bookshelf speakers in cherry Location: Brisbane - Pickup only Price: $60 Item Condition: A scuff on top of one speaker and missing rubber bumpers on the rear. Otherwise as new Reason for selling: Surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Extra Info: I've used these in a bedroom system for a time, and then in my desktop computer sound system. They've been useful where space was an issue. Photos: Scuff. Might polish out, I haven't tried.
  23. Item: PMC Twenty.22 Walnut Speakers Location: Brisbane Price: $1850 Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: Upgraded to newer model Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Extra Info: PMC Twenty.22 speakers in walnut finish. I am the second owner, selling as I've purchased a pair of Twenty5.22s in oak. A main reason for changing was aesthetic as neither my wife or I liked the Walnut finish (which doesn't match with anything else we have). Before deciding to purchase Twenty5.22 I auditioned a number of other speakers at home including Monitor Audio Silver 300s and Gold 100s. Both of these were priced above $3000 and in my opinion were not in the same class as the PMC Twenty.22 (which admittedly retailed for approx $4500 when new). You likely won't get a comparable or better speaker new for less than $4000. If it wasn't for the walnut finish, I'd have likely kept these speakers for a long time. They have a high sensitivity and are easy to drive however I've read they improve with high power output amps. I ran them on a Marantz KI Pearl Lite and was very happy with their sound. Full specs available on the PMC website: https://pmc-speakers.com/products/archive/archive/twenty22 The speakers have been very well looked after apart from a small scratch on the underside of one of the speakers as shown in the pictures. For a time they were placed directly on our entertainment cabinet (before I purchased stands) - to stop the cabinet and the speakers vibrating I attached small adhesive pads to the underside of the speakers. These can be removed if necessary, however I've left them on as they may be useful to the next buyer. Supplied in original box and packaging. Can post with Australia Post, happy to provide a quote on request. Photos:
  24. Item: DYNAUDIO CONTOUR 1.4 LE LIMITED EDITION SPEAKERS Bubinga piano lacquer Location: Adelaide Price: 2900 neg Item Condition: Excellent, As New Reason for selling: Surplus Payment Method: Cash, Paypal, EFT plus shipping Extra Info: As new, 1st owner purchased new from Denis White (Adelaide), hardly used, balance warranty transferrable, beautiful Bubinga piano Lacquer finish, outstanding sound quality and finish, Last of the series, Limited Edition. Original boxes and packaging. Shipping at your cost. New price was $5499. More info here : https://www.avconcept.com.au/product/dynaudio-contour-s-14-le-bubinga-bookshelf-speaker/ The Contour LE has been technically refined and further upgraded as well. The Dynaudio soft dome tweeter with Precision Coating provides fine, detailed high frequencies; while the internal wiring uses high-quality OFC copper cable. The crossover has been further refined by using special ceramic resistors and high quality capacitors, providing an exceptionally pure and refined music reproduction. The Contour woofers include the best Dynaudio technology such as MSP cones, extremely light aluminium wire voice coils on Kapton formers and rigid, low resonance die-cast aluminium baskets. The extremely stiff cabinet features a unique baffle. It consists of three layers, including a layer of damping material, and a thick metal plate. This construction effectively reduces cabinet resonance and allows excellent sound performance up to the highest volume levels. On this baffle the tweeter is positioned below the woofers to achieve ideal time alignment at the listening position.
