  1. Fantastic looking and great sounding speakers. Many years ago I had Chris demonstrate his pair to me with his SIRAC Amp, but I remembered a different tweeter, a KK8 sticks in my mind. If they had been in Australia I would have bought them without a doubt. GLWS Ken
  2. Hi Roo, Are you sure that your original cannot be repaired by a specialist repairer such as 'The Speaker Doctor'. If not I would put a notification flag on hifishark.com then you will receive an email if one is listed, I have done the same looking for a Kef B200 SP1039. Ken
  3. Item: Kef Reference 107 Speakers Price Range: Market Rate Item: Condition: New or Used Extra Info: I am looking for a pair of Kef Reference 107 Speakers. I would look at any variant, however I would prefer the Mk 2 model (or even the Raymond Cooke Special Edition version), with the Kube Equalizer if possible. Ken
  4. To the older SNA members this actual player is very well known. Superb quality of sound and construction. Ken
  5. Hi, Could I please take this item, I am still on Q2 and the remote is almost dead. Please send postage details for Perth WA. Regards Ken
  6. I have previously owned the 401C's some 40 years ago. I would like to try 401's again in this home with my current amps, this time the 401A's. I agree totally with zippi above that the amps of the 1970's / 1980's lagged a long way behind some of the speakers of the day, and it was the speakers that were blamed not the amps, simply because most of us knew no better. Since I sold my modern expensive speakers I have tried revisiting memories from earlier years and with decent power amps it is remarkable how good some older speakers sound. I am currently running well sorted Kef 105.2's, with good amps they can sound amazing. Ken
  7. I have been looking for a pair with chrome end caps for months now. A good pair are few and far between. Ken
  8. Volt Drivers are UK based, I remember in the 1980's - 1990's a lot of the Magazine designed speakers used Volt bass units. Their website shows ProDriva as the Australian reps. ProDriva | Home (pro-driva.com) Ken
  9. @Pete_F has one for sale and he is in Perth. It also has an Arm that stands up very well with most available today. FS: Refurbished LP12 Linn Sondek Turntable with Alphason Tonearm - Stereo, Home Cinema, Headphones Components - StereoNET
  10. We might have to rethink this, as all dealers of Sonos in particular, but most Soundbars in general say there is no easy way to have a Soundbar and a 5.1 system connected to use as required. Also no way to connect a Soundbar to a standard Sub Woofer (REL).
  11. Thanks for your response. Sonos was already on my list both the Beam and the Arc. Nice to hear that it has an EQ function. Is there any way to link in with an existing none Sonos Sub. Ken
  12. I was hoping that members could share their experience of the various Soundbars on the market. We are considering a soundbar on a Samsung 9000 TV because we sometimes have a bit of difficulty hearing / understanding some of the dialogue on programs especially the US programs. Are soundbars worth the money or just another gimmick, we have a 5.1 surround system connected to the same TV but only use it for movies and concerts. Do any soundbars have a built in EQ function.

  14. Hi, If you do not find exactly what you are looking for, I have an A&R P77 new in the box never been opened. Regards Ken
  15. As the BBC licensed models were all for studio / broadcast / monitor type use I think that they were fitted with XLR's to minimise changes to give them a constant reference. I do not know why Linn used the XLR type connectors. Ken
