Anyone in Sydney who would like to listen to the Ella Mk II speakers in a home environment please follow and reply in the link below.
I have the speakers on loan in my system for this week only, they need to return to Adelaide after that.
Don't miss the opportunity to hear these great sounding speakers while you can.
Following our club meeting with Nick's presentation of his impressive sounding Ella Mk II speakers, Nick has graciously offered me the opportunity to hear these in my own system for the rest of this week to fully evaluate what these speakers are capable of achieving in a home environment as opposed to the large open room at the meeting hall last Sunday amongst a large crowd.
So I thought, instead of selfishly listening and enjoying the Ella speakers all week, I would offer an open invite to anyone in Sydney who would like to listen to Nick's speakers to simply drop me a PM and arrange a time.
I'll be able to host up to 3 people at a time any night this week until Friday between the times of 5.00pm to 8.00pm.
The system will be;
Hulgich Audio Ella Mk II speakers
Plinius Reference amp in class A/B or class A power
Classe CP-800 pre amp
Antipodes DX2 music server running Roon or an Oppo 105 (CD or flash drive), each decoded by a Chord QBD76 dac
Vertere IC's, Nordost Frey speaker cables and room treatments. Pic below.
I have plenty of music on the server or bring your own. Sorry no vinyl but if it's truly a must have, I'm sure I can accommodate one you bring along.
I live about 10 minutes from Parramatta (so no need for a compass) in a nice leafy suburb opposite a park (so no need to bring security) and I'm a friendly hospitable guy with a healthy liver and kidneys (I think).
From those that attended the club meeting, most were very impressed with the sound of the Ella's with some saying they were in their top 3 -5 speakers heard at the club. Some info and thoughts can be found with the link below but ultimately you should hear them for yourselves to make your own judgement.
Look forward to hearing from you.
Item: Hulgich Audio Centre Speaker
Item Condition: Mint
Reason for selling: Never required
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
Extra Info: I bought this from @Marcto guarantee purchase of his Hulgich Astors (he wanted to sell as a package and there was a long queue of people wanting to buy them) on 14 Nov 2017, so I've had it a couple months but don't use it. He had it custom built by the Hulgich speaker designer to match the Astors. I don't believe he had it long.
Marc paid a fair bit more for it and, according to Nick from Hulgich Audio, it is worth more than he paid. It is a serious centre speaker and is very heavy. It goes very low (30sHz I'm told). When I first used it I mistakenly thought the subs were on. I don't actually use it because the speaker spots on my amp are used by the mains and the Marantz AVR is different Ohms and I thought that could break it. It has a really nice custom built Hulgich stand, also very heavy, and a speaker cover (it looks better without). I had a shorter one of the new Hulgich Audio FTM speaker cables made for it, which you can have. http://www.hulgichaudio.com.au/ftm-cable.html It has some nice silver spikey feet (you might be able to see them on the Astors - I think they go under the stand? I think the specs are on the plate I photographed. If you want to know anything else I can ask for you. Local pickup preferred. Like all good audio, it is heavy and might be costly to ship. Actually, I don't have a box for it either.
Item: Hulgich Audio Astor Loudspeakers

Extra Info: I received these very early from Hulgich Audio for a no-obligation product review for StereoNET. They've been here for approximately 12 months I assume. So impressed was I by what I heard, I called Nick and bought them full price, no questions asked. They've remained my benchmark reference speaker at the price point easily up to speakers I've heard approaching $25K and more.

I do also have a custom design and built (by Hulgich), matching centre channel if you're interest in Home Theatre duties also. Price by negotiation.
Auditions available here in Sunbury. I do have the original transportation crates that these were shipped from South Australia in, but for local transport I would suggest the normal care and wrapping / blanket etc. Preference is given to a local buyer, but if necessary freight can be arranged by the buyer and I will assist from this end.
