csr martini have minimum order quantities

 

i also went to the Autex experience centre in Melbourne where I was greeted by a pompous teenage prat. All she could do was brag about how she only deals with exclusive architects and designers , but could lower herself to deal with a pleb like me. Autex acoustic products are priced like Jardan  furniture, another wwannk  company who price their furniture is if they were Picasso’s.

 

its polyester ffs

Thanks @Kdjjdk Will. If there is a minimum order quantity that is more than you need, are you interested in sharing an order, once indulging in hobbies is a permitted reason to leave the house?  I probably only need one sheet (if 2.4m x 1.2m).

 

What way the price and minimum order quantity?

 

I know what you mean about "architectural" stuff. If you are greeted by a beautifully put together website and fancy showroom, unfortunately the prices tend to match.

Hi @Kdjjdk Will

 

Did you have any luck finding someone that can supply this? I'm interested in some 50mm thick Martini if you have some spare and want to sell excess.

 

Michael

 

 

I'd also be interested. I did a group buy with 3 or 4 other members a few years ago and it worked out well. Luckily the organiser had a van and the room at his home for the bulk order. I'm after white this time round.

I don't really care about the colour too much as I'm going to cover it with fabric  - hopefully an art print if I can find where to get acoustically transparent fabric printed that's not too expensive. White may be preferred as it won't show through. We'll see what the minimum order quantity is and what Will comes back with, but a group buy seems like a good plan!

I think it is 12 2.4mx1.2m sheets. I had a Ford Territory at the time and they only just fit in the back. I cut all my share into 1200mmx600mm sheets and placed around my HT room. This time it will be for my living room and dodgy DIY window screens for some west facing windows, so I'll also be covering them. I believe you get flag material printed to cover them

Ok - 12 is a lot of material!  As I probably only need one sheet we might need  more in the group buy.

I have a commodore station wagon which can take a pretty big load - I'll check whether 2.4 x 1.2 will fit.

 

Thanks for the tip re flag material. I'll have a hunt around for that.

What I was quoted about a month ago

 

martini Xhd is available in black or white
 

100 Mm thickness $270 per pack , and there are 3 panels in a pack, price includes GST- minimum 3 pack order

 

75 mm thickness $275 per pack , 4 in a pack , minimum 3 pack order

 

of course with freight companies jacking up there prices maybe it’s all more expensive now

 

from memory Autex acoustic panel products were considerably more expensive, presumably as a marketing tool. I saw their  phenomenally priced 3D acoustic tiles and they looked ghastly. Scam pricing imho

 

 

CSR MARTNI also have an XXHD range which I’ve never seen 

 

csr martini is made in Sydney and its about 2 weeks turn around approx once u place an order

Thanks for the update Will. I'll get an updated price for 50mm white Martini XHD and create a group buy on Stereonet. 

 

If we have enough people interested then I'll order as soon as Melbourne travel restrictions allow when we reach the third step of reopening (hopefully on 26 Oct).

 

I'll post back here when I have created the group buy.

i can get MARTINI ABSORB XHD   50mm white

 

They come in 2400 x 1200  each bag contains 6 pieces.

Min order is 3 bags.

Who is interested in buying 1 or more bags/pieces of me if i purchase 3 bags.  Because i'll probably only use less than 1 bag.

Hi @des35swim

 

I'm interested in one 50 mm panel (could live with 75mm as a second choice). If you are willing to arrange the group buy that might make more sense than me doing it as you need a reasonable amount. I have been a bit distracted onto other things (just bought a MiniDSP UMIK-1 and 2x4HD processor) so I haven't done anything more on the Martini order.

 

Based on Will's pricing above I'd estimate it is around $50 per sheet for 50mm. 

 

I was a bit concerned I'd be left with a bunch I didn't want if people pulled out, so you'd probably want to be slightly "oversubscribed" if you need to buy 3 bags.

 

Where abouts are you located?

 

Michael

Great.  Yeh your pretty spot on with the price it will be around $53 per sheet.  But i still need to organise it to be delivered to my place, which i think they said around $150 or $200 to deliver from their store in south yarra.  Unless someone has a big van or truck that is willing to pick it up and delivery to my place in Bentleigh.

So price will be between $60 - $65 per sheet unless someone able to deliver it for me in which case make it $53 per sheet.
I'm located in Bentleigh.


So
@gat474 :  3 sheets

- @Classicjazzophile  how much would you want

Just one sheet for me. I have a reasonably large station wagon. It could fit in there with the tailgate open a bit. I'd contemplate offering to pickup & distribute, but depends on where potential buyers are. That delivery is pretty expensive.

@blybo, @mpearce38 and @Kdjjdk Will 
MARTINI ABSORB XHD   50mm white 

I plan to buy the min order of this if i get enough other interest.
The min order is 3 bags, each bag contains 6 pieces of 2400 x 1200

Cost will be between $53 - $65 per piece depending on how much it costs for me to get it delivered to my place in bentleigh.

Any of you interested ?

got an update on the MARTINI ABSORB XHD   50mm white 

When i called back the south yarra store they mentioned that the min order is 4 bags not 3 bags they said some recent change to their min orders.

based on the response so far 4 bags is too much for me to hold on to.

 

so i called a few other places, another also confirmed 4 bags but another place the one in coburg mentioned they just get 1 bag.  Don't understand why they can do this and other can't ?

their cost is $250 plus another $110 for delivery.

So i'm probably going to go through them and get one bag. Initially i'll probably just use 1 or 2 pieces so will still have some 4 or 5 pieces spare.

so cost will be $60 per sheet and pickup location will be bentleigh.

 

Let me know if your still interested.

@blybo Where abouts are you in Melbourne Neil? I will consider picking it up and dropping it to you depending on where you are. 

 

There are 6 sheets in a bag, so if you actually want 3, des35swim wants 2 and I have 1 we are fully subscribed for one bag.

I'm in Mitcham and I've decided 2 sheets will do me for now.

So, where are we with this? I’m still interested in three sheets. If we can buy one bag at a time does anyone want to split a bag of six? I won’t be able to fit a bag in my car so would be reliant on someone else being able to pick up from the seller in Coburg.

Where abouts are you @gat474?

 

People interested are:

Blybo 2, 

des35swim 2

gat474 3

Me 1

 

To make up a bag of 6, and including des35swim as he knows where the supplier is and kicked this buy off, it would be des25swim, me and gat474, with Blybo missing out 😞

 

Can you live with that Blybo?

 

Alternatively if gat474 is OK with 2, then I can wait until another time.

sorry for the slow response.

i've placed the order for one bag a couple of days ago.

They just called me to say it should arrive in their coburg store tomorrow but may not be able to get it out to me till wed next week depending what time it arrives.

they said it first goes to ringwood i think he said or out that area.

i told him i'm pretty keen to get it before the weekend so worst case  i might hire a trailer and pick it up direct from ringwood, cause it won't fit in my suv.

I'll probably just use 1 piece initially.  so will most likely have 5 spares for those who want to take them off my hand.  I might want to buy some more down the track not sure yet.


The contact for the place i ordered it from is:  9386 1882

Autex make their own version that looks identical on paper but in reality they are not the same. Their AAB has a texture on the surface (not as appealing in my opinion), they are slightly thicker and a little lower in density. They also tend to flex more. This means it's much more difficult to get neat cuts.

 

When you place an order, make sure they are sending the correct version. Nothing worse than having HD panels show up when you ordered XHD. It happens.

 

I generally recommend the black XHD 50mm as it's the most universal. Many people are tempted by the thicker panels but the properties are such that you very often get the best results with an air gap behind the 50mm. This works for general purpose absorbers and bass traps.

 

Cutting is the biggest challenge. Yet another reason to go for the XHD 50mm. Lower density is harder to cut. Thicker is even more difficult and in many situations inferior in performance, when you factor in the air gap and frequency range targeted.

 

You can use an insulation handsaw and it will get the job done but you have two problems. One, the saw is blunt after just a few metres of cutting. Two, the cuts aren't vertically square. Even if you knock up a jig to keep the cuts square (vertically), the cuts are messy.

 

I use a purpose built cutting setup and it took a lot of trial and error to get it working properly. It's more trouble than it's worth for just a few sheets, but it's the only way to get cuts that you don't need to hide. I've seen some cuts that couldn't be fixed by putting the panel inside a timber frame with fabric over the whole thing.

^cutting is one reason I prefer layers of 25mm (that and you can add membranes).

 

@PeterWM achieved beautiful results with 25mm and a big pair of tailoring scissors.

 

If you're going to put it in panels and cover in fabric, save the pain and use Ultratel.

I did the same. The 50mm sheets are a pain to work with if you don’t have specialised tools. I’ve put my corner bass traps together from a stack of 25mm sheets.
