For Sale Brand New Aspect Masking System

Recommended Posts

At this point, I can't put my aspect masking system in as the roof height is too low in the new room.

Given this was one of the first ten units from the initial intro batch and given Chris had already purchased all the parts for it, and after talking with Chris about it, we've come up with a cunning plan!

Sell it.

$3400 delivered. Any size up to 140 inch. That's half price! It's the only one being offered up from the intro batch.

Details:

The new ASPECT CIH masking system is the first Australian designed and manufactured fully featured masking system that is a universal retro-fit over many fixed frame screens currently on the market, including Stewart Filmscreen, SMX, Carada, LP Morgan, OZTS and Screen Technics.

The ASPECT CIH masking system allows users to enjoy native “scope” format movies, with vertical masking panels that glide in, near silently, providing masking for any conceivable format, eliminating the unsightly white areas of the screen left visible when watching any other format movie, and increasing the contrast ratio by providing a super crisp black edge.

  • The quietest DC servo motor’s available
  • Electronically controlled masking system
  • 5 pre-programmed, adjustable position settings
  • 5 user definable and programmable positions, giving up to 10 defined positions on the remote control, and infinite positions using RS232
  • ”Jog” function enabling individual control of Left and Right masks - for complete control!
  • Custom made to fit any size cinemascope screen
  • Masking sits 3mm from screen surface
  • Acoustically transparent masking available as an option
  • Fidelio velvet used for masking frame and mask
  • Extruded Aluminium frame and cover

  • Cast Aluminium brackets
  • IR remote control
  • RS232 control
  • Consistent masking accuracy to 0.06mm
  • Variable masking speed
  • 110v - 240v switchable

PM if interested.

Tempting... Does this include Acoustically transparent option? Also curious what clearance is needed above the screen for it. I don't wish to run into the same problem. :winky:

Yes, it includes the AT option if wanted. You'll need about 220mm above the top of the viewable surface.

Rich's main problem is his screen size constraints due to the size of the JTR speakers. If he installed a smaller screen to suit the masking system, the JTR's would poke out above and / or below the screen.

Cheers,

Chris

I blame the ceiling :D

Probably the only chance you'll get to buy a masking system at below cost price! Most of the others have been installed, so this will be the only one left that you specify the size and masking type for the pre-order price!

Chris

What sort of warranty (if any) is included Chris?

Also, if you need 220mm clearance above the screen, do you need the same below? Thanks.

Hi Minty,

well, this system is now sold, but warranty is 12 months from date of install.

All firmware updates are free and any development changes are offered at cost for the life of the system.

Cheers,

Chris

Is that 140 inch diagonal or width?

Diagonal

Is that 140 inch diagonal or width?

Diagonal.. though I'm sure Chris can accommodate to 150 inch with this one, maybe even slightly bigger.

Chris, why bother still trying to sell this at "below cost price"? I can understand you offering it at this price when you first started and when this thread was first posted, why don't you just keep it and sell it at RRP? I assume AspectMasking is still going? This was offered up 6 months ago, surely you have recouped costs by now?

So, do you need the same 220mm clearance below the screen?

Bummer :(

This masking system is still available.

What the ....? :huh:

Hi Minty,

this system was Richard's system that since he moved, could not fit in his new location. It hasn't been built yet, but I was happy to honour the pre-order price as he'd already paid the deposit, and I already have the hardware for it, so it wasn't me selling it per-se, it was Richard, but someone else would have been taking over his system and getting it built to suit their screen. Make sense?

As for your other question - yes, the frame of the system is 200mm from the SCREEN SURFACE, plus an extra 20mm to allow for the cover to snap on, on all edges. I've sold a couple more units since the pre-order at full price, but I've sunk a lot of money into this little venture, and am still a long way from re-couping costs.

Bryan had said he'd take Richard's system, but then his circumstances changed which meant he was sitting on the fence for a while, and then had to pull the pin in the end unfortunately.

Cheers,

Chris

      Item: Quad II-Eighty Power Amplifier - 80 Watt Mono Valve Power Amplifiers (Pair)
      Location: Ringwood
      Price: $9,500 was $14,999
      Item Condition: Demonstration Model
      Reason for selling: It is the last model and needs to be moved.
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info: 
      The Quad II-Eighty Mono Valve Power Amplifiers are some of the most richly rewarding audio components you will ever lay ears on. From the company that bought you the electrostatic speaker, Quad continues it's tradition of 'The Closest Approach To The Original Sound'.
       
      The range topper of the Quad Valve power amplifier series is the Quad II-Eighty amplifier. The perfect partner to Quad’s electrostatic speakers, the II-Eighty is not merely a nod in the direction of retro styling, it’s a modern high-performance amplifier designed by one of the most famous tube-amplifier designers in the world using more than a little inspiration from the original Quad II amplifier.
      The new Quad II Series circuit design is the work of Tim de Paravicini, a man widely acknowledged to be the UK's foremost valve amp designer. His design is faithful to Peter Walker's philosophy of cathode loading onto the same output stage and fundamental simplicity of design, ensuring the new amp delivers the same wealth of detail and exquisite tone as its famous predecessor.
       
      The Quad ll-Eighty is an 80 watt mono power amplifier following in the tradition and philosophies of Quad founder, Peter Walker. The output section consists of four KT88 valves running as two pairs in push pull with the hallmark Quad topology of partial cathode loading in the output transformer.
      This method reduces distortion when compared to the usual Ultra Linear or triode methods, however, it does require a greater grid driving voltage. This is achieved, again in true Quad fashion, using a balanced pair input stage.
      The output transformer has been designed to improve high frequency performance and accurately balance the two push pull halves. Also the transformer has been designed to make sure that full output is realised at the bass frequencies down to 20Hz.
      Each output valve has its own cathode resistors to provide reliability and self-matching. The screen grids of the KT88 valves are run from a lower voltage, again for good reliability. The whole amplifier has a total of only 16 dB of feed-back providing good stability into virtually any known loudspeaker and especially the famed Quad electrostatic loudspeakers.
      Features:
      Design: Mono Valve Power Amplifier Input Sensitivity (nominal): 1V RMS for full output Power Output: 80W RMS Output Impedance: 4 Ohms or 8 Ohms, selectable THD @ 80 Watts: 0.5% - 30Hz - 15kHz 1.0% - 20 - 20kHz Residual Hum and Noise: Better than -94dB Frequency Response: 10Hz - 30kHz (+0dB, -0.5dB) 3Hz - 50kHz (-3dB) Damping Factor: 16 @ 1kHz (referred to 8 Ohms) Power Consumption: 180VA maximum Valves: 2 x 6SL7 1 x 6SN7 4 x KT88 Size (WxHxD): 430 x 220 x 190mm each Weight: 20.3kg each Finish: Lancaster Grey Manufacturer's Warranty: 2 Years
