Went in and met David the other day. 

Really nice guy and a great shop. 

I’ve bought a fair bit of stuff off the net but never been in before. 

Keep up the great work!

Selby stepped up and took care of a warrantee issue with a SV 237  I purchased from another dealer during a change of distributor sale. The new distributor mistakenly sent me to a repair shop in Sydney that refused to work on the unit. Selby stepped up and handled the repair and covered shipping to and from Sydney to Melbourne. Extraordinary and much appreciated. Thank you again Fred.

Couldn’t be happier with my new sv227. Sounds amazing and an immense improvement in sq from my Yamaha avr.  Built like a brick $h!thouse at over 20kg.

Can’t wait till I get the go ahead from the mrs for some new speakers. Working on just after Xmas. Will def come in and see what’s on sale then!

Get the best you can buy. The better the speakers the better you'll hear how good these units are! I picked up the SV 237 and it is awesome with reference speakers.

Yeah will be putting a post on the wtb section for second hand when the time comes. Want to stretch my funds as far as they can go. 

 

I listened to the 237 with Krix esoterix a while back and WOW!

      Item: German Physiks Limited 11 Speakers featuring the fabulous DDD omnidirectional transducer
      Location: Melbourne
      Price: $12K (RRP was about $18K) with donation to SNA on sale
      Item Condition: Mint with all original packaging for safe transport at buyer's expense, accessories, manual and paperwork. Purchased new from the importer
      Reason for selling: Too many speakers and not enough money
      Payment Method: Cash, Bank Transfer or Paypal
      Extra Info: German designer Peter Dicks evolved the "DDD" (Dicks Dipole Driver) from the legendary Walsh driver featured in Ohm F speakers from the US. I owned a pair many years ago and still remember how it's soundstage was so much more lifelike than anything else I'd heard before. Recognising the immense potential of the Walsh driver while acknowledging some of its flaws, Dicks managed to solve any remaining problems to produce a drive unit that is technically superior to any other in the world! A big statement, but you might want to read the Dick Olsher 2014 review in The Absolute Sound to understand why. A couple of reasons in simple terms relate to the total phase coherency of a single 360 degree transducer radiating out of its convex carbon fibre surface with a crossover frequency of 200 Hz, well below the critical midrange area. Cone breakup, directionality and phase anomalies make it almost impossible for a conventional design to compete with the spatial properties of these speakers. The listening sweet spot is also very much larger than usual. Combined with the speaker's discreet and elegant styling, the Limited 11 has massive "WAF" factor.
       
      The "Limited 11" was German Physiks' experiment in producing a speaker at a much lower price than earlier models, without sacrificing performance. The "Limited" run of only 100 pairs worldwide was so successful that they decided to continue EXACTLY THE SAME DESIGN, but with 4 alternative finishes instead of just the 1 in light grey. They call this model the "Unlimited MK II" which is currently available with RRP of about $20K. Because technical issues mean that the DDD driver cannot be upscaled, the same driver is employed in all models from cheapest to dearest, the "Gaudi" at well over $300K. This makes the potential listening experience from their Limited or Unlimited models stunningly affordable for the serious audiophile.
       
      The Limited (or Unlimited) model features a single carbon fibre DDD driver and 8" woofer in a sealed cabinet with acoustic vinyl finish and other resonance-suppression internal measures including heavy MDF reinforced panels, "Hawaphon" damping and high density felt. Bass from this moderately sized cabinet is surprisingly extended, defined and tight. I prefer the spike option on a carpeted floor, while rubber feet are supplied for use on hard surfaces.
      It is not hard to drive, with an efficiency of 88dB. Impedance never drops below 4 ohms, making it suitable for some valve amps as  well.
       
      The DDD driver covers frequencies from 200Hz to 24KHz and avoids the need for a midrange crossover point, which together with its naturally low distortion, exceptional transparency and fast transients reproduces the fine detail you expect to hear in a live performance. Its 360 degree phase coherency results in a huge but focussed 3 dimensional image that immerses listeners in the performance and involves them emotionally. I don't know how I'm going to be able to let these speakers go, as nothing else that I've heard can sound like them! Maybe I'll list my beloved Wilson Benesch ACT 60LEs as well and keep what doesn't sell first.

      Item: Canon EOS 6d full frame SLR
      Location: Castlemaine VIC
      Price: $650  $600
      Item Condition: Excellent
      Reason for selling: Upgrade
      Payment Method: Cash - pickup, EFT Osko, Paypal
      Extra Info:
      Selling my second body now that I've bought an EOS R.
      Note, this is not the mark II, it's the original 20.1 megapixel version. There's really not much in it between the image quality I get from this camera and the EOS R - the 6d is still a very good low light camera.
      The camera is is excellent working condition, well looked after, with a few minor marks.
      It comes with a Meike brand battery grip, which is just as good as the genuine one and has worked flawlessly.
      All the accessories that come in the box are included - body cap, battery, charger, USB and AV cables, software CD, manual. Note, the box is a 'lens kit' box - I bought the camera only. They're often sold this way and the kit lens is separated.
      Shutter count: 20775.
      Pickup can be arranged in Melb - I'll be visiting there soon.

      Item: Ambience 1800 Reference
      Location: Buderim, QLD
      Price:  $3650  Ambience 1800, Subwoofers $1400 each ($2400 pr), TOTAL Package:  $5450
      Item Condition: 8.5/10 (One mark on each speaker from transport shown in photo)
      Reason for selling: NLR (Too many speakers)
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:
       
      Ambience 1800 Reference:
      I purchased these brand new from Carlton Audio in May of 2018  as the standard edition, I then contacted Tony Moore the following month and had them upgraded to the reference edition (upgraded crossover and wiring) at a total cost of $8500.  Once they are setup correctly they are incredibly revealing  and easy to listen to with great height and scale. They are truly three-dimensional which is something I have never heard with a conventional speaker setup. 
       
      Reason for selling is that I have another set of speakers on the way and need to clear out my current catalog. Originally my plan was to keep to them and setup and dedicated listening room but this won't be happening for some time so instead of collecting dust they need a new home. 
       
      Will come with the original manual however I seem to have misplaced the binding posts as I have these bi-wired as per Tony's instructions.
       
      T-12 Subwoofer in Epitome Bass Cabinet:
      The subwoofers are a somewhat custom design from Mr Osborn, which are effectively the T-12 (Focal 12" flax subwoofer) with Redgum RGSW2  plate amplifier(200wrms into 8ohms) in the Epitome Bass unit cabinet. I selected the design after Mr Osborn told me to put the T-12 I had on loan on top of a chair.  Lifting the sub 2 feat off the floor worked wonders in eliminating a lot of the floor resonance however you lose some dB  as there is little reinforcement so I went with the more powerful plate amplifier to  accommodate the loss.  The subwoofers have over 3 years of warranty left on them.   
       
      T-12: https://www.osbornloudspeakers.com.au/t12
      Redgum Plate Amp: https://www.redgumaudio.com/product/rgsw2-amplifier-plate/
       
      Happy to demo for serious buyers. The total package of the ribbons and subs is quite the combination, most people that have heard Tony's ribbons would agree that they lack low bass. I tossed up the idea of upgrading to the Grand Reference but I made the decision to go with the Osborn subs and was very happy with the results. 
       
      Prefer local pickup but can ship at buyers expense using the original crates. (I have access to TNT so shipping is possible at a reasonable cost)
