Item: Orpheus Aurora 2.3 speakers in cherry Location: Canberra Price: $600 Item Condition: Very good used condition Reason for selling: No longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Extra Info: Beautiful curved cabinet crafted in real cherry timber veneer, some small wear as shown in pictures which can be seen on close inspection. Designed by Brad Serhan, manufactured in Australia. $1850 when new from from Kingston Hifi in 2009. From Orpheus 2009: "How do they sound? The floor standing Aurora's are characterised by a truly wide, 3 dimensional sound stage with pinpoint imaging that captures the ambience of the recording space. The speakers exhibit highly accurate midrange and treble response. This is combined with a truly extended bass end, with weight, punch and timing that is surprising in enclosures of this size and price."

For our June club meeting … Morris Swift of OneAudio Music Systems (https://oneaudio.com.au/) will present the active µ2 speakers. (That “µ” character is pronounced “mu” and is the Greek symbol for small or micro). OneAudio released the passive version of their µ2 speakers a while ago and it has received acclaim from Len Wallis Audio and others. The active version is very new. Brad Serhan designed the cabinet and did the voicing for both the passive and active speakers. Brad also designed the DSP in the active version. Morris designed the electronics and amplification. Here is an excerpt from a OneAudio brochure which explains their design philosophy… “The relationship between designing equipment and verifying its performance through measurement, and the effect on what we subsequently hear, and how this is perceived, is a complex one. So much so that many audiophiles and even designers claim that you can’t measure what you hear, and implore us to simply trust our ears. At OneAudio, we unequivocally reject this. There is no doubt that such measurement is difficult, requiring new levels of accuracy, novel approaches, and new insights in interpreting the data. But it is absolutely essential if we are to consistently design equipment capable of delivering the high levels of performance and musical enjoyment demanded by us at OneAudio.” Morris plans to demonstrate both active and passive µ2 speaker systems, however, the emphasis will definitely be on the active version. He’ll take direction from the audience, but he is also prepared to present on DSP technology and the issues with "digital", as well as the challenges of critical listening/evaluation and "A-B" testing. Morris will do most of his presenting at the beginning of our second half session (i.e. after our half time break). He wishes that you listen to the system first without being told what you should expect to hear. Morris would like you to first listen without influence or bias. The featured system will be as follows: Speakers (Active): OneAudio µ2 Active speakers utilizing ScanSpeak Revelator drivers - a 5" woofer and a 1" ring tweeter. These drivers are from the ScanSpeak premium product range and can be found in other speakers priced up to $50,000 and beyond. Main digital Source: PC/Laptop supplied by OneAudio. CD Transport: An Oppo BDP-105D Universal player will be used as a transport (for our BYO session only). Our popular BYO session will be split – it’ll be in part of the first half session, and also the latter part of our second half session. Members and guests are welcome to offer music to share with us all. So bring along your favourite music on CD or USB flash drives (sorry no vinyl). NOTE that USB flash drives are preferable. All we ask is that the music and recordings be interesting. We'll ask you to tell us a little about the artist/recording before it is played. Tracks over 6 minutes will be faded out, to give everyone a fair go. Whether you are a novice or a seasoned veteran, you will have the opportunity to listen, learn and share your experiences with others. Feel free to come and hear the capabilities of the system, or to just share the experience with like-minded music lovers in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Guests are welcome – we are a very friendly club so you don't need to know anyone to join us for an afternoon of fine music and sound. Venue: Epping Creative Centre, Dence Park Address: 26 Stanley Road, Epping When: Sunday 18th June 2017 Doors open 1pm Meeting starts at 2pm Best regards, Tom Waters President Sydney Audio Club www.sydneyaudioclub.org.au email@example.com
