  1. Hi Guys, Good day, monitor Audio Silver 8 floor standing speakers + Rotel amp + FIIO DAC . Great sound. Monitor Audio shines in High, mid and lows. Great stereo music. Thanks SMB
  2. Hey All! I've been out of the loop for a few years now but finally getting some free time to enjoy movies/gaming/music again and want to improve on my current 2.1 audio setup to match a recent 4kTV upgrade. My current setup is: Visual Sony X85G 4k HDR TV Sources CA Azure 751BD Bluray/Cd Player Foxtel iQ4 PS4 Pro iPhone11pro Audio Rotel RA-06SE Integrated Stereo Amp B&W 685 Speaker Pair B&W PV1 Subwoofer A $50 Jaycar DAC that's handling the optical audio output from the TV to my stereo amp while i'm working out which path to go down... For simplification purposes I now basically stream everything movie/TV related via all the streaming services like Netflix, Disney+ etc or watch sport and premiere movies on Foxtel. And, if i'm being honest, I probably stream music way more just from my iPhone these days than a CD. I'm basically embracing super fast broadband, improved streaming quality and convenience. So anyways, i guess I'm looking for advice on where i can add/improve on my current setup to better suit my new way of consuming media. Now a couple of notes: I have no plans to update the speakers/sub anytime soon. I'm happy with them. I have no plans to grow my physical movie/music library. I'm embracing the ease of streaming services. My audio focus is more towards being immersed in a movie/tv show and less so on music, which is more for in the background when cooking, entertaining etc. My total upgrade budget is around $1k - $1.5k for new component/s... but certainly no more than $2k. A decent DAC to handle the PCM optical outs from my TV and Foxtel is an obvious solution, but: I want this upgrade to be a family friendly integration - not a symphony of remote shuffling. I'd like the option of a sub line out as well as stereo out. I'd like the option to stream music from my iPhone sometimes. A new integrated stereo amp is the other solution to handle the digital audio outputs from TV/Foxtel/ps4 and drive my speakers. Downside is i'm left with the RA-06SE which i do still like. But, if i can get an option that is better in audio quality as well as handling my digital inputs within my budget than it's A-ok. I want this upgrade to be a family friendly integration - not a symphony of remote shuffling. I'd like the option of a sub line out as well as stereo out. I'd like the option to stream music direct from my iPhone sometimes. So i guess the advice i need, taking into account how i watch/listen to stuff and what equipment i already have is: Recommendations/brands on where to start on the new DAC Path? Recommendations/brands on where to start on the new integrated stereo path? Recommendations on another path that I've missed? Thanks in advance. TCG
  3. So Im only 15 but Im getting sucked into the DIY hifi and audio stuff. I want to make a medium sized 2.0 stereo system using low end Peerless and Daichi components. links: https://www.wagneronline.com.au/daichi-1-titanium-dome-wide-frame/daichi-universal-series/daichi-universal/speaker-drivers/audio-speakers-pa/dt700-6994/3075/pd/ https://www.wagneronline.com.au/peerless-by-tymphany-6-mid-woofer-sds-paper/speaker-drivers/audio-speakers-pa/830657-67560/975521/pd/ Is their any advice for when i eventually make these, components etc. Im probably going to use 16mm mdf, is that thick enough?? And what size enclosure and port is suitable for these drivers?? I was thinking of making the front baffle around the same dimensions as an A4 piece of paper. hopefully all good results, with the drivers n all but knowing me lol. I have made other speakers before, so don't cut short on the geeky side. DIY freak

  6. Item: Plessis Audio S1 Stereo Integrated Amplifier Amplifier Location: Sydney. Will post interstate. Price: $600 Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: No longer needed / upgrade Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Plessis Audio S1 integrated amp in excellent condition. Bought new from Len Wallis Audio in 2017. The S1 came about as a joint effort between Charl Du Plessis and his manufacturing partner in China. The design brief was to come up with an amplifier that delivered great sound quality at a really good price. I recommend this amp as an introduction to audiophile grade hi-fi and in my own blind listening tests easily goes toe to toe with amps well over twice its RRP. Weighing in at 10kg, the result is a fantastic sounding no frills amp that delivers 80 watts RMS into 8 ohms and 130 watts into a 4 ohm load. The only controls are a wonderfully smooth motorised volume control, input selection (from front panel only), mute. A minimalist remote and bonus headphone out. Lovely sounding and was enjoyed in my system, has a slightly warm tone, excellent drive and presents a nice amount of detail. Physically, there's a few light scratches and a slight bit of discolouration on the top of the case where the significant other placed something that stuck to the case, and she used some solvent to remove the residue.

  8. Item: Vincent SP20 Anniversary Edition Hybrid Tube Solidstate Stereo Power Amp Location: Hallam, Melbourne - Pick Up Only (Pick up can be arranged from either Hallam or Thornbury retail stores) Price: $1000 (RRP $3500) Item Condition: B Stock (12 Month Warranty) Reason for selling: Clearance Payment Method: Pickup - Cash/card, Paypal Extra Info: Can be viewed in person at the Hallam retail store before purchase. (Pick up can be arranged from either Hallam or Thornbury retail stores) Manufacturers Sales Pitch: Celebrating 20 years of Vincent! Limited Edition Anniversary Model. For the jubilee, we offer you a special model, the SP-20. This is a studio hybrid power amplifier which in its base is founded on one of our most successful models, the SP-331 MK. We have thoroughly revised the unit and optimised the circuit. In addition, we gave it a face lift with two VU meters. As a special feature, the colour of the background lighting of the control instruments is adjustable. You can choose between red, blue, green and white with a switch on the backside of the unit. The exquisite aluminium case with its impressive cooling fins hiding and indicating its great power remains unchanged. Two 6N16 tubes work in differential push-pull mode form the input stage. The more powerful 6N10 tube transmits the signal to the transistor output stage. 12 FET transistors amplify the signal. The signal amplifying is supported by 8n electrolytic capacitors with 10,000 uF respectively. These specifications deliver plentiful power when necessary and it is possible to operate even difficult to drive loudspeakers adequately. The power amplifier presents itself in the guaranteed Vincent style. The bass is precise and powerful whereas the mid and high signals sound musical and transparent. Thanks to the tube, it allows a warm and clean sound to emerge from the unit. Technical Specifications: Frequency Response : 20Hz - 20 kHz +/- 0.5dB Output Power RMS / 8 Ohm: 2 x 150 Watt, RMS / 4 Ohm: 2 x 250 Watt Harmonic distortion: < 0.1 % (1 kHz, 1 Watt) Input sensitivity: 1,35 V, Signal-Noise ratio: > 91 dB, Input impedance: 47 kOhm, Inputs: 2 x RCA(stereo). Outputs: 4 x 2 Loudspeaker terminals(A & B Speaker choice). Colour: black Weight: 27.5 kg, Dimensions (WxHxD): 430 x 195 x 435 mm Tubes: 2 x 6N16,1 x 6N10 B Stock (12 Month Warranty) Feel free to ask for more information.
  9. Hi guys, I am in desperate need of cash, I need to sell these ASAP, so i will be open to heavy negotiation. The KDX-Main's are black. The speakers are in good condition, full working, the only thing is there has been a small dent on one of the woofer dust caps. They are slightly worn on the outside. I am hoping for $280- for the pair- this is really a great price for the sound you get. I also have a pair of Gecko stands, i can do those for $50-. Krix KDX-M Main / Stereo Speaker Product Features: Nominal Power: 110 Watt RMS; Speakers Function: Main / Stereo; Construction: 2-Way; Connectivity: Cable; Frequency Reponse: 50 Hz - 20 kHz; Impedance: 6 ohm; Sensitivity: 89 dB; Woofer Size: 5"; Woofer Material: Paper; Tweeter Size: 1"; Outdoor/Indoor: Indoor; Mounting: Bookshelf, Floorstanding; Cabinet Finish: Wooden; Depth: 10.43 in.; Height: 17.13 in.; Width: 7.28 in.; Weight: 19.84 lb. The RX-797 Yamaha Stereo Receiver is in mint condition. It is a very highly regarded amp- Google some reviews, it never gets less than 4.5/5... mostly 5's.I do not have the remotes or the box available (they are at my ex wife's house, we can't even communicate properly yet)... I am hoping to get $200-, but I will take lower as i really need cash urgently. 100W x 2 (RMS), 145W x 2 (Max) high power output ToP-ART (Total Purity Audio Reproduction Technology) Switchable CD Direct Amplification Pure Direct for short and direct signal path High dynamic power, low-impedance drive capability Multi-zone control capability with dedicated zone remote unit I live in Stanmore, NSW- It will have to be pickup only.

  10. Purchased 19.10.2011 from the guys at Clef Hi-Fi Melbourne, took delivery in December that year. I think original price was around the $1500 mark. I'd be happy with $750 for this. I have the box/manuals for this ready to go. I also have a pair of Chord speaker cables currently hooking this up to my Krix Neuphonix speakers. Happy to discuss sale of cables. As stated on the Cambridge website: "The amp puts out an impressive 100W RMS into 8 Ohms and with two pairs of output transistors per channel has enough peak current capability to get the best from even ‘difficult’ speakers." This certainly had no trouble driving my Krix Neuphonix, producing crystal clear audio enjoyment. Info and specs on this amp can be found here: http://www.cambridgeaudio.com/products/azur-740a-amplifier

  12. New page beyond 100 pages Link back to the Battey Based Audiophile http://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/75988-a-battery-based-audiophile-story/ Time to start a fresh chapter, or think of it as going from prep to grade 1. This thread will be similar but will concentrate more on the finer points of 1. Room, listening zone acoustics, in response to the stereo or actual waterfall plotting and explanations 2. Getting to the bottom of testing and applying data to speaker response curves, the outside test and then the inside of the room for the fully active system. 3. Front End of system. 4. Speaker Enclosure and Amplifier construction. 5. Opening a hobby based specialized Audio listening Center on NW Tasmania. 6. Off Grid Power Supplies for AV and why they can be superior. The DC/DC stereo will pop up from time to time as well.

  17. I've decided to sell the power amp. Item: Rotel RC-1070 or RC-1090 Stereo Preamplifier (pref black, pref with remote) Price Range: Up to $200ish, but the lower the better. Item Condition: Used Location: Melbourne Extra Info: Basically I have an unused RB-991 power amp and I'd like to find a matching pre. At least, I'm toying with the idea and want to see what's out there. Really I'm open to any stereo preamp at all, but, as we all know, matchy is best. Alternatively, if you have the pre, and want to buy the RB-991 from me, I might be open to that, too. I'm just not a fan of orphaned components - either it gets a pre or it goes.
  18. Item: Rotel RT-02 Radio Tuner, in excellent condition with very minor usage wear. Comes with the original remote. Location: Will ship! I'm in Maroubra, in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney NSW. Naturally, local pick up is always my first preference. Price: $225, will swap for decent turntables and separates, new or old. Anything classic too, I like surprises! Item Condition: As per above, happy to take more photos too. Reason for selling: Matching preamp sold, lots of tuners! Payment Method: Pickup is cash only. Will ship with PayPal but we must speak on the phone first. Extra Info: Beautiful finish, looks great in amongst a Rotel stack. The components in this range from Rotel have a high construction quality to them, and an elegantly simple approach to the design of the internal electronics themselves. Pictures:

  23. Item: AMC 2N100 mk2 Stereo Power Amp Location: Adelaide SA Price: $500 Item Condition: BNIB Reason for selling: Have an even more powerful Rotel now Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Brand new in box AMC 2n100 Mk2 - 2 Stereo power amp. Collected last week from Denis White AV. I paid $740 and these have a 3 year warranty. Long story short, I demo'd this amps little brother in store on a pair of Dyns very similar to mine and thought WOW! I ordered this on the spot with an anticipated delivery of a week or less and it took more like 2 months as the supplier was apparently out of stock in Australia! In the meantime i picked up an RB 1080 in excellent condition that I am also madly in love with and so this has to go. My loss is your gain. Pictures: *pics are stock photo's off the interwebs - as mine is still boxed up (for now) *
  24. Hi All. Hope this is in the right area. I have a Denon AVR-X1300W AVR, I use this on my desktop as a Stereo Receiver. I also have a Creative Sound Blaster X7 DAC/AMP, I use this for Headphones and real small bookshelfs for night time listening. My PC's internal sound card is a Creative ZxR. 2 sets of speakers, one larger than the other, Larger set used with Subwoofer, smaller set on separate AMP for direct 2 channel listening with no Sub woofer. Set of KriX KDM-Mains on AVR with Sub and Krix Equinox on X7 in Direct Mode. Also have a set of Dali Zensor 1's down stairs. Now before I ask the questions, I am not double Amping or chaining DAC's, so don't think that please. My questions are as follows. What connections into the AVR will give best sound quality? ZxR to AVR through Optical? Analog? Or skip ZxR and use the X7 pre-outs (Direct Mode) into AVR? Can be Optical or Analog there too. Or even use the X7's DAC, go analog into AVR and turn Direct Mode on (With LFE+Main on as Sub won't work in direct if that ain't on) Is it ok to put smaller speakers on top of bigger speakers with vibration pads between, but only run one set at a time? The Ohm setting on the X1300, my speakers are 6 Ohms, but I read you leave the AVR at 8 Ohm anyway? Thank you for any help!! Will happily take any other suggestions as well.
