  3. Item: Lenehan MLT3 Floorstanding Loudspeakers - titanium grey colour Location: Melbourne Price: $3100 Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: Upgrading to ML5 Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I know there is a backlash against using the term ‘musical’ to describe a piece of equipment and so I won’t use it. What I will say is that since owning these speakers, I have enjoyed music more and felt I have had more insight into the performance than with any of my previous speakers. In fact, they are a bit of a gateway drug to the Lenehan naturalness and accuracy, only being sold to help me go up his range of speakers. Mike Lenehan’s attention to detail shows in every part of these speakers, including cabinet bracing, the lovely finish and, as you would expect, the crossover. Reportedly these are efficient enough to pair well with valve and solid-state amps alike. These have a lovely dark gloss grey enamel finish that is maddeningly difficult to photograph with my iPhone, so if interested, I suggest you look through the other threads on Stereonet, where some better pictures have been taken of this exact pair of speakers. Photos show one very slight blemish on the side of the left speaker, which is unnoticeable under normal circumstances. Local pickup preferred due to size & weight, but shipping can also be arranged.
  4. Item: Tannoy Revolution XT6F floorstanding speakers - dark walnut Location: PERTH Price: $1100 now $890 for a quick sale Item Condition: Unmarked and as new (but run in of course). Reason for selling: upgraded Payment Method: Pickup in PERTH (SOR) only - Cash, Paypal, bank transfer Extra Info: I bought these new about 3 years ago, but they’ve had very little use. They’ve been used to play vinyl at family friendly listening levels and powered (easily) by a 20ish watt SET amp. The rave reviews you’ll find by googling are all true IMO. I think this one is spot on: https://www.whathifi.com/tannoy/revolution-xt6f/review. The soundstage, accuracy and timing of the drivers are amazing, I reckon. So taken am I with the dual concentric concept I splurged on the new Tannoy Cheviots, so these are sitting unused and need to go. Donation to SN on sale.

  5. Item: Aaron ATS-4 Mk2 Location: Frankston Price: $450 ono Item Condition: Perfect no marks looked after well Reason for selling: No longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Direct Credit(Bank Online) Extra Info: Have the original shipping boxes Classic Australian Speakers Go loud with little driving superb sound Specifications 4 Driver, 3-Way Floorstanding Design. 2 x 173mm Bass Drivers .Dual Laminated Cones. 1 x 136mm Midrange Driver.

  6. Item: Proac Future One Floor-standing speakers Location: Bendigo, Victoria Price: $2900 Item Condition: Good condition. These have been well cared for. LHS speaker does have small damage to veneer only at the very bottom of the rear corners (see photos, not noticeable unless up close). Comes from non-smoking, no pets environment. All drivers are in mint/as new condition. Reason for selling: Part of a second system that I don't have the time to use Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal. Extra Info: A rare find, as these remarkable speakers don’t often come up for sale. They were a departure from the usual Proac design, with open baffle and ribbon tweeter. When new, their RRP here in Australia was $18,999 and $10K USD overseas. After owning many speakers over the years, I have a distinct preference for the high end Proac sound. These speakers have been part of a second system, however I rarely get to use even my primary system. Primary system includes Proac D80’s, which are amazing. These speakers are the next closest I have heard to them, but it’s time for them to go. After years of trying out many speakers across brands, I have not come across anything better than these used for even twice the amount of my asking price. The birdseye maple finish is stunning, and is by far the best finish on any speakers I have seen or owned. The birdseye looks almost multi dimensional from different angles and in different light. As with all Proac's, these speakers are built to a very high standard and the sound is exceptional. Stereophile review here - https://www.stereophile.com/floorloudspeakers/1000proac/index.html It is rare to find these in Australia for sale. For reference, overseas sales are typically in the $5-$6K AUD range I would encourage local pickup, with a chance to audition, and with payment of your choice. Bendigo is only 1.5 hours drive from Melbourne. I currently have them setup with a pair of Red Wine Audio Signature 70 mono-blocks, and they can be auditioned for as long as you wish (in a separate room from rest of the house). Note that I’m prepared to sell the mono-blocks to the buyer at a very reasonable price if interested. If not, after the sale I will be looking to sell the mono-blocks for anyone interested. If local pickup isn’t practical then I’m happy to look at delivery options. Questions welcomed. Thanks for looking. Pictures:

  10. Item: Pair of Martin Logan Ethos electrostatic hybrid speakers like new Location: Everton Park, Brisbane QLD Price: $6,299.00 includes $60 donation to SNA (new price $10,000) Item Condition: Like new, perfect with original packaging Reason for selling: Upgraded to another set of Martin Logan's so these are no longer needed. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, bank transfer if shipping is required and you cannot pay in person. NO PAYPAL Extra Info: I upgraded from conventional three way cone Tannoy floor standing speakers to the Ethos Martins and the improvement was astounding! Nice seamless delivery of top end thru mid range and down to 375hz which is all handled by the electrostatic panel, and then below 375hz is punched by the 8 inch forward facing active powered cone driven by the internal speaker amplifier and the passive downward facing 8 inch. Sound stage appears wider than the speaker placement. Very good looking speaker and while they are a reasonable size do not look imposing due to the see through nature of the panels. Purchased new in box from authorised Brisbane dealer and used for 2 years in non smoking home. Perfect condition. Never exposed to direct sunlight. 8" forward facing bass driver with downward 8" passive. Has bass control knob so you can tweak to suit your situation.

  12. Item: RTR 280DRs Location: Price: $1200 $1100 Item Condition: 7/10 - awesome for their age Reason for selling: Dad has upgraded Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Hi all, I’m selling these beautiful and rare old RTR 280DRs on behalf of my Dad (not to be confused with the cheap RTRs after BIC bought the company in the 80’s). Matching serial numbers 3838 and 3839. The story goes that as an 18 year old, dad had a choice to make – a new car or a stereo system. Needless to say that he choose correctly and they’ve been in the family since new in 1977. It’s actually quite a sad day for both of us really as these were my first introduction to the glorious world of hifi as well – in fact the couple of dinted dust caps were at my own hands as a 5 year old – apologies! Anyway, here they are in all their Teak clad glory (real Teak, not plastic veneer). They pack in 10 drivers per tower. 5 paper mids/tweeters, a front facing piezo horn, 3 front/side facing 10” woofers and a downward firing 10” woofer. I’ve checked all drivers and they are in good working order. The rear of the crossovers have pots for treble and mid range as well as an protection override reset button. One speaker will on occasion cut out but a reset is all it needs. The switch probably just needs a clean. The cloth grills look loose in the photos, that’s just due to the screws being removed for me to take photos of the drivers. The crossovers have recently been recapped with Jantzen MKTs from Speakerbug.com.au. Dad reckons they now sound exactly like he remembered back in 77’ as they had lost a lot of sparkle and bottom end prior to the recap. Sensitivity wise, I can’t find the original specs but they’re clearly pretty sensitive when compared to my -89dB Martin Logans. Easily over 91-92dB. They’re not in perfect condition being 41 years old but overall present very well. There has been some loose veneer over the years which has been reglued. One tower has a chip to the bottom rear corner. I’ve tried to show all of this in the photos. A few of the tiny dust caps on the paper tweeters have been pushed in but they’re such shallow caps, I hardly noticed until dad pointed them out. I’m not sure what else to say about these but please feel free to ask questions. Dad is asking $1200 for them and I realise that’s on the higher end but given their rarity here is Australia it’s probably a fair price Pictures:

  15. Hey Everyone, First time posting here but long-term audiophile since I was in high school. Back in about July 2017 I purchased this speaker kit from the USA, this is a Dayton Audio / Parts Express kit jointly designed by Don Keele, Jr. I've always been very interested in this technology as the ground plane version that these are and the version before use the floor reflection as an advantage instead of a destructive influence. The kit is called the CBT24, "Epique" I purchased the kit as the difference in price is about 500USD, I thought I could save a lot on painting and assembling myself (and I did). The kit comes with premade wiring harness for both, all major wood working assembly already done, wiring binding post input cup, bolts, drivers, screws, name plates and sound deadening. 24 x 2-inch Dayton Audio ND64-16 2-1/2" Full Range drivers are what these are designed around, each are 16 ohms DC, with the harness a 4-ohm load total is what is seen at the amp. The wiring in the CBT24 is such that the loudest output are at the floor and quietest (12db approx.) down at the top, only two massive resistors are needed for the attenuation/padding of the last couple of drivers, more on the technology and the shading maths behind it can be found on Dons website : http://www.xlrtechs.com/dbkeele.com/ Below is a timeline of photos from the start to finish: The padding resistors I added a little zip tie to remove the strain on the resistor leads, there are two in each speaker, so this is added insurance the resistor wouldn't break in two :P The MDF boxes as delivered, I test fitted the drivers and noted that the side walls were a little tight on the outside basket of the drivers, especially at the ends of the boxes, I noted this and sanded those MDF edges heavily, this is something I did tell the supplier about, even just 1 mm wider would have been nice to reduce the chance of scratching the paint/finish. Here are the Dayton Audio ND64-16 2-1/2" Drivers, very well made for how cheap they are, especially when there is 48 x of them I did discover however that the metal frame vents do get blocked off quite a bit on the MDF cut-outs as the thickness and proximity of the MDF is almost the same height, I left the boxes un modified due to the amount of work to correct this. Chamfers on the rear inside edges of all the driver cut-outs would be a nice change in future versions to release the pressure, this choking does affect the TS parameters of the woofers from reading I’ve done. After receiving the kit, I did research on MDF preparation etc, I settled on the following procedure sticking to Oil Based paint the whole way through: 1) Sand RAW MDF with White 180 Grit Sandpaper 2) Seal with Dulux Prep coat 1Step Oil Based Primer, Sealer & Undercoat, I rolled this on with roller and a fine good quality brush. 3) Sanded Undercoat with 220 Grit Sandpaper 4) Apply Base/Final coats: Rust-Oleum 2x UltraCover Paint+Primer with light sanding between. 5) Apply Clear coat: Also Rust-Oleum Branded Gross finish. I first painted the bases completely to get a feel for my ability, I did work out my approach to sanding the undercoat was not enough, I did get a slight orange peel look to it, I fixed this in the tower painting by sanding the under coat with 180 then 220 Grit to first get the levels all correct and then sand further to smooth it. Once I was happy with the bases (halted at clear-coat stage) I stared on the towers, these took about a day to sand ready, I also filled in gaps like the one below with some putty Next, I coated everything in one go so that the panels that would be seen the most, two sides, top and front where well connected and consistent finish. I rolled on this undercoat and brushed on small tight areas too to make sure even coverage. I did fail to seal the bottom thick enough the first time haha, I fixed this later by just using the roller. This was both towers fully coated and drying (no picture of rear panel and bottom being finished) Next, I sanded them with 180 then 220 grit sandpaper, and cleaned them thoroughly before the main black paint, here I laid them down on one side, this method seemed to work very well for the base black paint as I could get nice even application. Each coat on each speaker was recorded so i could track where i was up to, I alternated between sides, back and front to get even coverage. Once all the main paint was done I proceeded to attach the towers to the bases, in hindsight this was a mistake for the clear coat, I worked out with the clear coat that actually almost flooding the area of application instead of a thin coat resulted in less over-spray or chemical dust getting on the bases and other panels. I instead disassembled them and made some temporary feet from scrap MDF I had, this allowed clear coating of the bases and towers to be down separate which resulted in a much more professional look. In the end I ended up using approx 2litres of clear coat in spray-can form to coat these o-o I left them to dry for approx 8 days to make sure as much of the fumes was gone, I then blew all the dust out ready to bring inside, I settled on not even sanding or polishing the finish as it was already butter smooth. I attached the base temporarily and sat both upright to install the wiring harness in both through the top hole. A recommendation I read was to leave the speaker input cup until last instead of connecting it first, as fly leads outside the box were much easier to connect instead of reaching in. I then laid them the towers on their side, removed the base and used a little hot glue gun and glued the harnesses in place in both boxes, making sure each labelled connection came out the correct baffle hole number and that the wiring and resistors were far back as possible from each driver, without being to far for the cables not to reach. Once wiring was done I inserted and left loose the Polyfil sound deadening. Once all the wiring was done I unpacked all the 48x woofers and tested all for similar resistance and for mechanical noise - all passed I then screwed in all the drivers by hand, I strongly suggest test fitting each and pushing them down first as some of the spade input terminal areas of the woofers had a tad to much solder, rubbing up against the MDF cut-out. Finally the bases could be attached for the last time completing the build. I then spent a whole heap of time setting them up. Nice little arty picture here: The system they are now apart of consists of the following: 2x CBT24 1x NAD C245BEE 4 channel amp (only two channels used as 4ohm load) 1x Custom made digital Preamp (pictured below), USB Streamer, Optical/Coaxial SPDIF input, MiniDSP branded 2x4 + MiniDigi combo, running left and right active sub-woofers in stereo or 2 in 4 out. 2x Yamaha NS-SW300 sub-woofers in stereo (not summed mono) 1x Marantz CD32 CD Player. No room correction on the MiniDSP at this time, only a phase flip on the subs, crossovers are 100hz @ LR 48db/Octave. The system sounds awesome even without E.Q. and is well worth the time put it. Thanks for Reading, please leave a comment
  16. Item: Richter Sovereign Emperor Speakers Location: Inner West SYD Price: $450 $350 neg Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Upgrade Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: A very good set of Australian made floorstanders available now! I've really enjoyed these speakers for the time I've owned them. They have a lovely bottom end and smooth and fast tight bass due to their design. They're 4ohm, but quite efficient so don't need a heap of power. I used to drive them with a Marantnz PM6004 which was a nice combo to my ears. They're bi-wirable/bi-ampable (jumpers are included, but not shown in photos) and I found they sounded best when set up this way. The cabinets and drivers are in excellent condition with only a small scuff on one corner as shown in the picture Also included: Floor spikes Brand new set of drivers (2 x tweeters and 4 x mid/bass units) Grilles. These are in excellent condition too, but have weak magnets so are difficult to get to remain in place I'm negotiable on price but can't ship due to the size and weight, so local pick up only please.

  19. Item: Mission 705 Floorstanding Speakers Location:Mount Martha 3934 Price: $600.00 Item Condition:Very Good Reason for selling:We have downsized and these are too large Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: For Sale - Pair of Mission 705 speakers in Excellent condition both cosmetically and acoustically. These have been used (gently) as front stereo speakers in a 5.1 home theater room for the last eight years. The sub was pretty much superfluous as these put out enormous amounts of bass. Reviews can be found here - http://www.audioreview.com/cat/speakers/floorstanding-speakers/mission/705/prd_120156_1594crx.aspx I would suggest these speakers would be more suited to modern, jazz or rock rather than classical music. Pretty much right in your face and definitely not subtle. We have downsized and no longer have the room for these large speaker. Designed in the UK and manufactured in the EU. I don't believe these ever retailed in Australia. They were marketed in the US and Europe however given their size I would guess the US was the primary market. These were imported from the US by the previous owner RRP in the US was US$1250. 00. Previously powered by a Denon home theater amp. Currently hooked up to an ME750/ME24 pre/power amp combination for audition. These can be auditioned in Mt Martha 3934 and these speakers are pick up only from Mt Martha as we do not have the original boxes and they are far to large to post, Specifications Type: 3 way, 4 driver loudspeaker system Frequency Response: 30Hz to 20kHz Recommended Amplifier: 25 to 250W Impedance: 8?

  20. Item: Hales Signature II Speakers with external sand filled, cast alloy crossovers.Location: Gosford NSW Price: $2350.00 (may look at partial trades for 4m length high quality speaker cable)Item Condition: Need WorkReason for selling: Too many speakersPayment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal buyer pays fees, COD OnlyExtra Info: these are simply massive speakers. Each speaker weighs over 80kg and each crossover weighs more than 10kg. The front baffle alone is 4 inches thick. Drivers are 2 X Dynaudio 7" and 1 X MB Quart Tweeter. All drivers work and sound correctly, however the tweeters have had their domes pushed in and out again, as you can see from the pics. Plus one tweeter has no spider cover. Both tweeters are the same model though and this model is still available used online. All the Dynaudio drivers are in excellent condition. The crossovers and speakers utilise 8 of the famous solid copper billet "Edison-Price Music Post" binding posts each, which fetch good money on their own ($100 a pair!) Crossovers are cast alloy and filled with sand, hence the weight. Wiring is by Cardas I believe, both internally and between the crossovers and speaker. Cabinets are showing signs of use as seen in the pics, although they look great as they are. One cabinet is missing some veneer from the front as seen. A brief description of my impressions of their sound would be: Fast, tight and dynamic. Bass does not go deep, but what's there is very accurate. Imaging is excellent. Midrange very accurate and clear with excellent tone. Highs are neutral and transparent, but personally, I would add a super tweeter. With this addition and matched with a good subwoofer, they would be very hard to beat. These were an expensive speaker in their day at USD$4850.00 in 1991 and were compared very favourably with the legendary B&W 801. Here is a link to the Stereophile review http://www.stereophile.com/floorloudspeakers/791hales/index.html#Ss6KOlKh5Aq7mY8b.97 These will have to be pickup only I'm afraid, although I can get them to a Pack & Send Store nearby.Pictures:
  21. Item: HiVi Swans Diva 6.2HT - A high end, CES award-winning 5.1 Home Theatre System that would still set you back about 6k new. Consists of Swans Diva 6.2F Floorstanders, Swans Diva 5.2R Centre Channel, Swans Diva 5.2R Bi-Polar Rears and a Swans Diva Sub60 Subwoofer. Now throwing in the Energy sub too. Location: Sydney -- they're in Maroubra right now, but may be moved to storage in the lower north shore area if not bought soon. Price: $1800 for the set. I'll include an Energy e:XL S-12 subwoofer for FREE an additional $150 (so $1950 total with both the Swans and the Energy subwoofers). The Energy alone would easily sell for $350-400 on its own, and the Floorstanders are worth 1000 easy. Grab yourself a bargain, this is a fraction of RRP. Item Condition (pictures attached): Sounds fantastic, drivers are immaculate. Good condition and presents very well overall: I do believe 90%+ of buyers on here would not hesitate to give this pride of place in a primary (or secondary if you're full-on speaker mad) home theatre system. The offer of the Energy Subwoofer more than compensates for the shortcomings of the Swans subwoofer (as described below). There are some signs of wear if you look closely, and I have tried to document them as best I can within the pictures. I've included a fairly comprehensive and rather nit-picky list of signs of wear below: Swans Diva 6.2F Floorstanders: These have a few light scratches on the sides, which would likely be easily sorted with a polish application. A few small holes in the grilles. I'll upload some videos if I can to better show the condition (secondary camera in use at the moment due to mini phone meltdown, so bear with me regarding video quality). Swans Diva 5.2R Centre Channel: One midrange driver surround has some fading to it, but is intact. You can choose to refoam or not, up to you. Needless to say, you're not missing out and they still look great. I'm even happy to do a refoam for you if you really want! Swans Diva 5.2R Bi-Polar Rears:One of them has a chip on the black part of the paintwork. The other has one speaker peg hole with a bit of plastic caught in it: that being said, the corresponding grille has all of its pegs intact. Swans Diva Sub60 Subwoofer: The downward-firing driver has been removed, while the front-firing one is still present. This is the weak link in the system: hence my offer to include an additional top of the line Energy Subwoofer for a small amount extra ($150 is well under half its fair used market value). The Energy e:XL S12 Subwoofer is in great condition, and is superior in terms of frequency response: it will do 20Hz at -3db. Reason for selling: I'd rather have someone use them than have them sit in storage. Bought too much gear for my own good in the last 3 months: you'll see a small selection in the background of the pics here. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash after thorough testing and inspection. I want you to be happy with them, so we'll go through it all. It's beautiful gear that speaks for itself, just have a listen!

  22. Item: A pair of Sony SS F-60 ES floorstanding speakers (Elevated Standard range) and a Sony CDP-CE525 5-disc CD changer / player / transport (comes with a remote) Location: Eastern Suburbs of Sydney, NSW Price: REDUCED TO $400 $520 ONO. I'm not offended by offers, so please don't hesitate to message me. That being said, you may not want to miss out on these, as they don't come up for sale very often in this part of the world. Item Condition: Great to Excellent condition Reason for selling: I need money. Money is good. I have many speakers. Speakers are also good, but money is slightly more important right now. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash after full demo/inspection. This process will likely be accompanied by the old obligatory lengthy conversation about hi-fi gear. In light of this, do set aside additional time! If you're interstate and particularly keen on these, you'll need to PM me and convince me of your Sony fandom. Extra Info: Really hard to find this Sony ES speaker line in Australia, and in such great condition at that. Can't even remember the last pair of Sony ES floorstanders for sale here on SNA. You'll find that on the used market, the greatest number of examples of this line come from Germany and the Netherlands, where it seems to have been not only made, but more widely distributed. I found this particular model listed in a German 1995/96 Sony catalogue of high-end components ( hfe_sony_es_high_end_hifi_components_1995-96_de.pdf ). It's quite clear from the catalogue that this was one of Sony's top-of-the-line speaker offerings at the time. Two snippet of the specs listed in that catalogue (which, naturally, is in German) are included here: Though it can be hard to interpret the German info I've come across in learning more about these, I believe they are of German design, made in Germany with all Danish Vifa drivers. The frequency response is rated at 32-20,000 Hz , and each cabinet weighs 22.5kg. Not your standard Sony speaker by any means! These are in really nice shape. Cabinets have very, very minimal wear, as is the case with all of the drivers and the grilles. The foam surrounds on the mids have some light wear, but there is no tearing or deformity: they still seem to be going strong, which is why I haven't felt the need to replace them. The speakers sound great: get them off the floor!! Whether you isolate/couple them or use small stands, getting these babies off the floor really opens up the mids and takes any boominess out of the bass. I use 60-80cm stands with them, which makes them look absolutely ridiculously tall but seems to hit the spot for me in terms of sound-stage (BIG). Once correctly set-up, you end up with a performance marked by control and clarity. The CD player is in good shape, with only light wear, and comes with a remote. If you have any questions at all, or would like to set-up a demo time, feel free to message me. I have plenty of other hi-fi that I'm looking to sell, so please do let me know of what things you're looking to add/change within your own setup. Pictures: sony_ss-f60esl_f60esr.pdf
