  1. Hi, I’ve recently upgraded my 5.1 home theater setup & keen to hear tips/opinions on my receiver/speakers & what could be improved or changed to better match. Im always on the lookout for better gear. Thanks in advance. My current setup: Receiver: Marantz slim NR1510 Fronts: B&W 685 (s1) Center: Polk CS20 (quite a beast, looking at picking up a B&W LCR60 S3 soon instead, perhaps will match better too) Sub: Jamo SUB210. kept the jamo as it does an ok job. Surrounds: Polk S10
  2. Further information: Revel Performa C30 centre speaker. This is one serious centre speaker in size, sound and weight. I dont have a home theatre set up anymore so need to part with these.

Obviously will does not affect sound and is not visible if the speakers is in a cabinet. No No grills or boxes so pick up a must. Photos:

  5. Further information: Purchased few years back for original owner for my collection. All speakers has been replaced by new original Bose in 1998, so it’s working perfectly and decades to go without any problems. Regret to let them go due to no more space, will list some vintage amps later on SNA and Ebay. Will post with flat rate 100$. Even they are too heavy but will pack safely.

  6. Further information: I got these speakers 2 years ago when I wanted to set up a turntable in my room but didn't want the expense of an amp. Also didn't have the space for it. These speakers did the job and did them very well! They not only have phono inputs, they have optical, aux, USB and Bluetooth as well! Comes with a slick remote control, so you can adjust this all from the comfort of your chair! If you know what Klipsch speakers are capable of, then you know that these are awesome! I've since moved my turntable to my living room and it now runs off an AV amp and I don't need these anymore. Truly great speakers that will benefit someone who wants to connect to their turntable but still have the luxury of listening to Spotify off their phones using Bluetooth. Or connect to your computer using USB. Condition is as new. No dinks or scratches. They have never been moved from when I took them out of the box and placed them on my desk. Read about them here. I can't seem to find somewhere in Australia that sells them other than here and RRP is $1199. Pickup only from Maidstone VIC as I don't have the original box for them. Happy to audition them at pickup. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  7. Hi and thanks in advance for any responses, I've recently moved and i'm in the process of purchasing a sound system for my new house. I want to start with the speakers (2.0 but maybe 2.1 if better) as I think that's the most difficult and then probably an integrated amp. My main room is largish, L-shaped, open plan and with difficult acoustics i.e. hard floors, some full length windows (which can be covered by blinds) and some ceiling height windows (which aren't covered by blinds). The walls are plaster but aren't vertical. They are 4 or 5 plaster sheets slowly rotated from the almost vertical to the almost horizontal. I have attached a floor plan showing both. The house in on the coast and built on pylons sunk into a sand dune. It vibrates, for example I can feel the house moving in strong winds or when the washing machine is in the spin cycle. The position of the speakers is also pretty well fixed. Part of the main room has been partly walled off to form a study. These study walls are 2.2 meters high but do not reach the ceiling. Between the top of the walls of the study and the ceiling is a 600mm gap and it is in this gap, sitting on top of the wall, is where I want to place the speakers. I have marked this in red on the attached house plan. As the house is open plan this gap opens into the bedroom and bathroom so there is a lot of room behind the speakers. With both speakers on top of the study wall (approx 2.2 m high) they can be a maximum of 2.1 m apart. As the gap is only 600mm high I would like, for aesthetic purposes, the speakers to be a maximum of 400mm high.....unless they can be placed on their sides??? The front of the study is open (no door) and has a width of 1.2m. The study will house the amp and any other components when and if purchased. With the fixed speaker locations and bad acoustics I appreciate that getting a great sound will be difficult but I would still like to do the best I can. I have a budget of approx $1,000 but I can increase this if I can get a significant improvement by spending more or I can spend less if a similar sound (for my environment) can be obtained for less. I would also rather be flexible and find something that is good value (on sale, demo, quality/recent 2nd hand) rather than have my mind set on a particular item. I have an eclectic taste in music: r & b, soul, rock, classical, acoustic, electronic, pop....probably everything except dance and hip-hop. My party days are over and my listening level is background to medium. I never sit in a chair just to listen to music....I tend to have it on while moving around the house cooking, cleaning, doing household chores, painting, fixing stuff etc. I don't need it attached to the TV or for playing DVDs. I have a few hundred CDs and I tend to either listen to these or stream ALAC copies of these from a NAS or bluetooth MP3 (lower quality) from my computer or iPad. After I get the speakers sorted next step will be to add an amp...maybe a Yamaha r-s801 or r-n803 if I can get one for a bit over a $1000....but again i can't decide this until I know the speakers match. After that a CD player and a streamer (if needed) and then I'm done for the next decade....well that's the plan! Appreciative of any advice, Chris

  11. Further information: Up for sale is a Bower &Wilkins 686 S2 speaker. Its a relatively slim sized speaker that might suit smaller space Condition is still very good as per picture. Pickup is preferred but can ship at your own expense and risk. Comes with original box and manual. Note that there is no rubber feet on it as i used a stand with it and the optional bunghole foam apparently has deteriorated inside the packaging box so its there in the box but i dont think that foam is usable anymore. Some review can be found on: https://robmoores1.wordpress.com/2014/06/03/bowers-and-wilkins-686-s2-small-is-big/ Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  12. Price updated 1200. Further information: Reluctant sale of my 685 s2's and HTM61 S2 center, was going to hold onto the 685's after upgrading to the 700 series, but space is at a premium. I've had the 685's since 2015, and the center since 2018. No damage or any issues whatsover, an would make for an excellent starter home theatre system. A pair of stands thrown in if wanted (not B&W specific, generic) .
  13. 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.

  14. Further information: Original Sonus Faber Minima FM with matching serial numbers 1264A and B. some blemishes in cabinets and tweeters some dimples but work perfectly. No grills or original boxes. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  15. Further information: I purchased these used in 2017 and these have been the longest speakers I have kept. They have seen off many other speakers, floor standers may have more bass and output but these just sound right to me. It’s a sealed box so there isn’t much bass but what it has is GREAT. These love a bit of power to make them sing….. Lots of power. These sounded best with Naksa 70 & B&O ICE 125ASX2 an amp with lots of bass control. For a while I had these speakers at work in a large warehouse and mini Topping class D Tripath amp and it wasn’t too bad even with these tiny bass drivers. It is the Whatmough house sound in a tiny package. These sound good on stands over putting them on a side table or shelf. 2 way sealed enclosure using 140cm bass driver 25mm soft dome tweeter Efficiency: 85dB input level 2.83v - 1watt into 8ohms 65Hz to 20kHz +/- 3dB 300H x 185W x 180D 6kg Finish: Burnt Cherry (?) mounting bracket on back There are a few marks on the speakers nothing major. 60cms Stands I had made in 2018 by Anthony (Grizzly) they cost me around $330 I think (could be more) Perfect for these speakers and LS3/5a size speakers has spikes and floor disc. These work well on hard floors. For carpet a heavy weight on the bottom of the stands will keep it balanced. I used books or LPs. Willing to separate. Open to reasonable offers. Photos:

  19. A thread dedicated to speakers having a rated efficiency of 96db\watt\meter or more. Over the years I have built a number of speakers, mostly single driver, which have been high efficiency. We are all aware that low power valve and SS amps can struggle to produce good volume levels with speakers of efficiency lower then 90db. But team-up you flea power valve amp with a speaker featuring the Fostex FE206En and magic happens. Even SS amps in the 25W range can not always produce the dynamics which more powerful amps will produce into speakers with a more normal 87db rating. I have built four pairs of speakers three using the Fostex FE206En, the driver having a rating of 96db. From simple ported types to the super complex back loaded horn. See images. These have worked extremely well with 2 to 5W SE valve amps but some complain there is no weight behind the music. I think the counter argument to this is that these ultra light weight coned speakers produce better micro-dynamics, general dynamics and detail than there less efficient partners. Weight in notes can be enhanced with the use of active sub-woofers or assisted bass speakers and yet still retain the detail and dynamics of these special drivers. Over the last three or four months I have been using only my DIY 98db efficient 12" Beyma concentric speakers (retro-thermionic - VoXConcentriC). My 5.8W DIY SE 300B plays to ear-bleeding levels when hook-up to the Beymas. They are Tannoy style and with a 2" Titanium tweeter produce reasonable bass to 50hz and bright treble response to 20K+. To pickup a little more weight in the lower register I team them up with 12" active stereo sub-woofers. This way I get bas down to 31hz, crisp micro-dynamics, detail and what appears to be unlimited head room. I have really fallen in love with these speakers. Even my 3W DIY 6V6 SE amp plays to excessive levels with these speakers. Voice, brass, and acoustic instruments sound excellent and alive through these inexpensive speakers. I like these Beymas so much I have ordered the 15" version. Please post your experience, good or bad, with either commercially built or DIY high efficiency speakers. Any projects you may have in the future and would like to discuss here. Images are always good to. Even experiences at shows, demos etc.
  20. Hi All, Revisiting the vinyl scene after many years away and have started out with a Pioneer LP30 turntable and I already had a Yamaha HTR-6130 receiver. Down the track I would like to upgrade eveything, but my budget will not allow that for a fair while. I would like to add better speakers than the ones that came with the receiver and was looking at a few bookshelf speaker options. I have seen a few Edifier model and also a Pioneer SP-BS22-LR Bookshelf Speaker. I only have up to $300 to spend. I know nothing will blow me away with my current set up and budget, but it's a start to listen to what I have. Does anyone have any suggestions?
  21. Further information: I am selling my old Chrono series floor standers and center ~ 6 years old very well looked after. I think it's a bargain of a price Pair of Canton Chrono 509.2 DC floor stand speakers Canton Chrono 505CM Centre Channel Speaker Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  22. Having tried a couple of couriers in the past with limited success. I need another pair of speakers (total 70kgs) moved from Melbourne to Sydney. Recent quotes from e-go (cheapest $), Pack & Send ($$$), Smart Send ($$$), Interparcel (via TNT - road were affordable) - any other recommendations? So far, only PackSend and Smart Send offer Insurance of amounts over 2k.
  23. Hi, I've had these beauties tested and all drivers are functioning perfectly, they sound incredible. Matching serial numbers as indicated in the photos and they also come with a stand for each speaker. There is some cosmetic damage so please refer to the photos. Local pick up in Sydney region. I don't have an amp, i had them tested at a hifi store so you'll need to byo if you want to test, my appologies. They were left to me from a family member who has passed away, I know theres someone out there who will appreciate them. Edit: I'm no longer accepting PayPal I'm only accepting cash, my apologies to anyone wishing to use this service but there are too many scammers. Still happy to prove they're fully functional to those who are serious about the purchase. Edit 2: I'd also like to mention that I've included the speaker stands in the purchase price to offset the cosmetic damage. I know their valuable and I believe that's a fair trade.

  25. SN members who recall my earlier listings (incl. Linear Tube Audio, Focal Mini Utopia, Consonance Linear 1 preamp, 845s monoblocks) might have noted my somewhat inherent alacrity to share my own experiences in the quest for that ‘elusive ultimate’ reproduction of music (my own ‘learning curve’ if you like, now spanning almost 40 years) (As the brand may not be as well known locally as it is around the globe, anyone interested can of course access ample material online. I will include just few links to some basic info at the bottom of the listing) My personal appreciation of Piega originated back in 2013 at the Munich High End Show, i.e. the day I discovered how piano can actually sound out of a loudspeaker. Ever since that occasion I kept coming back to that memorable sensation as if to a new reference in my search for that next speaker. When Interdyn took up Australian distribution of Piega products I managed to secure a home audition of the Coax 90.2, which precipitated in farewelling my much-loved Focal Mini Utopias (sold here on SN in Nov 2018). To add some further perspective to where Piega performance sits: more recently I have also auditioned in my system a pair of Focal Sopra 2 which, as great as they really sounded, I did not feel they fully matched the overall coherence or refinement offered by the Piegas. To complete this ‘narrative’ - my latest antidote for this seemingly incurable case of ‘audio nervosa’ has now taken me all the way to a pair Focal Utopia Scala Evo. (yes, my wife has finally kindly agreed to sell one of her kidneys…) At the time the RRP for the Piega Coax 90.2 was $26K AUD per pair. I purchased this pair new in 2018; have retained all packaging and accessories. The condition is as new. For anyone still reading - the key technical aspects behind the extraordinary qualities of the Piega lie in their unique design of the coaxial ribbon drivers which are largely responsible for their exceptionally balanced & refined presentation that this proprietary driver design imparts (refer pic 8). Additionally, the cabinets of top PIEGA models are processed (as in the case of Coax 90.2) from one solid aluminium block. As a result of this unique manufacturing process, they are totally void of any seams and are produced with unparalleled precision. They can also be formed into elegant shapes whilst negating any standing waves inside the cabinet. Piega’s natural sound reproduction is one of the significant benefits attributable to the use aluminium cabinets. Piega Coax 90.2 Specifications: Recommended amplifier output: 20 – 250 Watt Sensitivity: 92db – W/m/ Impedance: 4 Ohms Frequency range: 24Hz – 50 khz Dimensions: (HxWxD) 112 x 26 33 cm Weight net: 46kg each unit Design principle: 3-way system; floor standing loudspeaker Equipment: 2 x 18cm MOM® bass, 1 x C1 Coaxial Ribbon Connection: Bi-Wiring WBT Manufacture: Engineered and hand crafted in Switzerland Some of the prestigious ultra High End accolades awarded to Piega: https://piega.ch/en/awards General info: PIEGA speaker Ribbon System and Seamless Aluminium … https://piega.ch/en/insights/unsere-geheimwaffen-bandchen-technologie-aluminium Understandably would prefer a local pick up but can ship at buyer's expense which must include appropriate insurance. Happy to respond to any relevant questions via PM. Richard
