 Krix Acoustix Mk2 Speakers in Atlantic Jarrah
- Multiple award winning speakers
BEST BUYS AUDIO & AV MAGAZINE – ISSUE 2-2014
We were surprised at the depth and power afforded by the dual bass/mid drivers in the Acoustix Mk2: they really punched above their weight. We were hearing far better, far deeper bass than we’ve heard from any small two-driver two-way system, to the point where it actually rivalled some of the smaller floorstanding  models we’ve auditioned.

Bugger. I have a brand new set of these in transit.

If you get a spare minute can you pm me and tell me if they sound as good as the reviews say.

I've had to buy to suit the wifes decore on a gut instinct after as much research as I could do without audition.

I have these and reckon they sound great.

If i could afford I'd buy these 100% but I'm slowly saving for LS50Ws...

@Rob Wright I think you'll be very pleased with your purchase.  I previously had a pair in black ash and liked them enough to come back to some more.  Once well run in, the Acoustix's bass is genuinely impressive for a speaker of this size.  The mids and highs are very nicely rendered too. 

 

The clever front ports mean they are not as fussy as some on positioning.  I used them to great effect well into the room on some Solidsteel SS6 stands.   Conversely they were surprisingly good on some less than ideal shelves in close proximity to walls.

 

If you've not already seen the Australian Hifi review which includes a detailed lab report, it is worth a look.  Happy to send it through or post up here if of interest.

Not only do they sound great, the jarrah finish looks great. 

Agreed.  The black ash is very nice but atlantic jarrah is my pick of their finishes.

Sounds is always going to be influenced by room and setup, but I'm extremely happy with mine. They're thin, so they fit nicely on my desk and the tweeters are refined enough not be glaring in near-field. They have a hidden reserve of bass in those little cabinets, too, and don't get stressed out playing loud. 

 

I found they improved for soundstage (again, in near field) with TPU wedges to tilt them up very slightly. We're only talking about 15mm of rise at the front.

Thanks for the reply. I have read every bit of information on the internet. That lab report said they are a well designed loudspeaker.

It's a bit difficult to audition anything in Hobart. We only have one high end shop. And it's not huge so they limit their brands.

Anything decent at the right sort of price range in the local classifieds  is accounted for before I can even get my hands on them.

You shouldn't have any trouble selling them at that price. Mine are Blackwood and were  closer to $1700.

Yep,  RRP is $1675 so it's a decent saving..

 

One pair has already gone (Gumtree).  One pair left.

      Hi gang, first off the bat I've got to be upfront and say that I do not like how these sound. Bought them from another member here as per the ad below and they sounded tinny and shrill. I thought maybe it was the cabinets and some run in time was required. Risks of buying speakers unheard I guess, but was expecting more given good reviews online.
       
      I then got some plans from David Dicks, owner of AN and went with the build for the 2.8 Mk II cabinets which was the biggest I thought I would get away with for our living room. It has opened up after some run in time and the midrange has come in, but still very little bass to speak of despite the larger cabinet volumes. Really wanted to like these and made for a fun lockdown project, but it's time for me to give this one up and hopefully someone else can do something with them or get them sounding as they should.
       
      Made of 18mm MDF so cabinets are quite hefty. Cabinet is a DIY job so don't expect perfection, but they're not too bad and would look decent once finished. Cabinet dimensions 980mm high, 350mm deep, 305mm wide. Grilles are attached magnetically.
       
      Pick up only, but if there's interest in just the drivers I could consider splitting and shipping just drivers.
       
      Keen to move these along, and think I've priced it reasonably considering cost of drivers alone is USD295, plus materials and lots of time for the cabinets.

      Item Condition: Excellent Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition. Suburb or Town: South Yarra State: VIC Payment Method: Cash on pickup, Osko/PayID transfer on pickup Reason for selling: Putting a kitty together for another purchase Further information: When I picked this up it had been in storage for a long while. I think it was part of a deceased estate and the guy didn't really know what it was and he had no way of testing it...I took a chance. When I first set it up my heart sunk, it sounded terrible. I then took to it with the Deoxit and whammo...revived! It's given my ear holes many hours of listening pleasure ever since. To my knowledge no other work has been done on it. Faceplate is immaculate and every function works. I have been using both the Aux and Phono inputs throughout the time that I have owned it. I also had the matching tuner (104) but that has been sold. I know I'll regret selling this as it was my first foray into 70's HiFi, I love Marantz gear and it's in amazing condition. But I'm putting a kitty together for a tube amplifier and the proceeds will help.
