Quite a few I haven't seen before. A great list thank you

 

Some out there designs, interesting websites and unfortunately a few without pricelists.

When some one like Duntech does first order Xover and sealed box it makes me smile. It means I’ve got it right all this time with my own builds. I guess after 60 years of electronics and DIY audio I may, just may, know what sound “right” and I know what the “f” I’m doing. I’m not going to see another 50 years but time to bring it all together in one or two builds - flea power tube amps, true retro-thermionic builds.

Great list - familiar with probably half the names from the Australian side. Most of the NZ names except for Theophony and Wing audio are new to me

Absolutely i am going here,i have being thinking about a speaker upgrade for a long time and the search has been never ending.I was getting misty eyed about the Tektons and trying to get some kind of an idea about expense of importing them , sent them an email they responded saying they would get back to me on the costs involved but unfortunately i never heard back from them and i am not surprised with the hell they going through at the moment in the US.

So I thought bugger it i'll go local ,looking closely at VAF , great pedigree and bang for buck in spades very quick to respond to questions from me.

But i am very tentative when spending big bucks as i have what someone here brilliantly said and i quote "I have a champagne taste but a beer budget"

So the search will continue blah blah lol!

What an excellent list, some amazing looking speakers (and some dreadful looking websites). This is the first time I have heard of several of these makers.

The Hulgich Audio Nina reminds me of something from Sonus faber, and Pitt & Giblin Superwax a modern take on a JBL 4350A.

@Snoopy8 has done a fantastic job of collating the list. What would be awesome is if 'we' as a community can attach a list of references/reviews (where ever available) for these speakers brands. Since there are not too many reviews of Australian & NZ made speakers, this would really help potential buyers or others who are interested in the brand.

 

This is probably a bit task, but if we can all pitch in - especially the experienced and long term members, along with any existing owners, might be possible. What say, Snoopy?

 

As a starting point, attaching a review of Hulgich speakers from our forum.

https://www.soundstageaustralia.com/index.php/reviews/17-legend-acoustics-big-red-active-loudspeakers

An interesting idea.  Some questions, comments:

  • Can we get most, if not all of them to have a SNA reference?  Otherwise, only big vendors with larger customer base will make it
  • Suggest using SNA only references, and 1 link only (easier to maintain) 
  • Commercial reviews, including formal SNA reviews should be excluded.  If the vendor does not put links to commercial reviews in their own website, then it is their problem; we are already giving them a leg up and should not be expected to do further marketing
  • Vendors can encourage their users to start a thread here; these users would then add to this list
  • Am willing to update my original post occasionally, but will depend on all of you to build the list up.  It has to be a collective effort of many people.
  • Ideally, people should up accumulate the links into a few posts and I can then update the original post.

Let's see what people's responses are.  If ithere is only a handful of interested people, then it will not work...

Agreed........we'll need quite a bit of community participation to make this work well. No harm in giving it a shot, but like you said, will have to wait to see if others are interested.

OK. I will get in first before it becomes an issue where I am wrong ........again.

My sincere apologies to March Audio and everybody here.

I wasn't considering Australian made speakers but have ended up with a pair of Orpheus Apollo. They were just within my megre budget and sound fabulous!

Those Pitt and Giblin Superwax mini give me a major case of the wants!  Super cool waveguide, massively high WAF factor.

https://www.pittandgiblin.com.au/swmini

Yeah, they look awesome. Not cheap at $13.5K a pair, but considering they are fully active with DSP, all you need is a source

 

Some recent news about them

Great list, do any of them make a subwoofer that costs around $500? Used subs are really hard to find in Perth and I can't really afford to spend $1000 on an SVS.

Adelaide Speakers, Krix, VAF have subs at the $1K mark.   Suggest you put a WTB (Wanted to Buy) and maybe someone in Perth may have a used one.

      Item Condition: Right channel broken Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available. Suburb or Town: Kilsyth South State: Victoria Payment Method: PayPal Reason for selling: Broken right channel Further information:
       
      Hello.
       
      My brother, known here as “earthwolf82” has since passed away. This was the last ad here, that he did.
       
      the right channel is distorting, hence why he decided to sell it. He had it since new, and it’s out of warranty. We have the manual that came with amplifier. He loved animals, so, we are donating all proceeds to Healesville Sanctuary, and $50 to StereoNet on completion of the sale. There’ll be other items that come up as well. PayPal only, contactless pickup.
       
      Thanks

      Vincent's new Australian distributor seems to be a new company: http://www.funaudio.com.au/ . A sign of higher prices?

      According to my rough calculations which are based on publicly available data, DAB+ accounts for just under 20% of all radio listening in the 5 mainland state capitals (19.9%) by time spent listening.  What’s more, the whole-of-audience time spent listening to DAB+ (DAB+ audience x time spent listening) has increased by over 5% in each of the last two DAB+ surveys of 2016.
      As a comparison, the share of radio listening for DAB/DAB+ in the UK in the 2nd quarter of 2015 was 26.7%.  It was 31.2% the same time in 2016.  It was 19.1% in the 12 months to June 2012, so Australia’s 5 mainland capitals are only four years or so behind the UK.  Not bad given that Australia officially launched DAB+ 14 years after DAB was launched in London and 11 years after it was launched in the rest of the UK.
