  1. Someone asked me to check the bottom of these for any scratches. It looks like a previous owner must have used spikes on them. There are pinpoint dots on the bottom of them in each of the corners of the speaker. I've always had them sitting on acoustic felt or cork. The macro photos make it worse than it is in person, but here it is for full disclosure.
  2. Further information: Selling my faithful Rega DAC. It's performed wonderfully with every combination I've paired with it, with a Rega Brio-R to Harbeth's or the Legend Acoustics Kurres I've got up for sale. It's got a great analogue quality to it, and it's been a great performer. I've been moving towards non oversampling DACs though, and haven't used this in a while, so time to let it go. I've put the condition as good as I can see the top has some light fade to it in parts which I've tried to photo. Looking for pickup only at the moment, and will donate back to the forums if sold here. Photos:
  3. Further information: I bought these back in 2017 off the forums here. I haven't used them near as much as I should, though they do sound great. They've been a secondary pair to my mains (Harbeths SHL5) but I've been getting deep into DIY speakers so am selling these off before moving houses. I'm sure I'll regret it a bit once they're gone, but need to make space for too many projects! They sound fantastic of course -- Rod at Legend Acoustics really knows what he's doing. I prefer my Harbeth's for the extra depth it reaches (8" driver, much larger enclosure), though the Kurres really do dig deep in the right room. They have a similar sort of tuning to me (and measure as such), though the Kurre's seem to have a bit more detail -- it might be the difference of the aluminium vs RADIAL woofers or harmonics. Build quality is fantastic. The finish of the wood is a stunning satin, and the front face with speaker cloth off (which I prefer visually) has this lovely mottled affect. They're roughly the same condition as when I bought them, though the Legends label did fall off (though I pressed it back on for the photos). I can leave it off or stick them back on for you if you wish. The condition other than the labels and pinpoint dots from spikes (see post below) is very nice. Looking for pickup only at the moment for ease. I do have the boxes and packaging still. Will donate back to these excellent forums once sold. Photos:
  4. Looks like a good price given what’s in them + the construction! I’ve been curious about these tweeters. How do they sound in this speaker?
  5. Good price. The drivers alone would cost around this much
  6. Item: Dayton Audio DATS v2 or v3 Price Range: Negotiable Item Condition: Used Extra Info: Been diving deeper into DIY speakers so looking for a working DATS v2 or v3 for T/S and impedance.
  7. I have a pair of these and they’re still a fave after many years. The bass extension and df neutral tuning are great. If only they could be custom shelled!
  8. sorry Bill! Read the ad wrong. Yep it’s the 22D you’d be after. Great for correcting the room and keeping the flavour of your DAC.
  9. Item: Hypex plate amp FA123 or FA253 Price Range: negotiable Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: Looking to build an active 3-way speaker and on the lookout for a plate amp. Open to other active plate amps or Hypex 2 way if the price is right.
  10. Here’s a digital in/out one on the classifieds. I’ve got the same unit and it works well in my setup https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/336600-fs-dirac-mini-dsp-ddrc-22a/
  11. These units are great. I run it with some standmounts in my living room. Cleared up the room issues and especially helped the bass.
  12. I'd love to see the T/S specs + measurements for the Radial drivers. I've never opened the SHL5s though. A bit hesitant to in case I blemish them in some way. I wonder if stiffened/reinforced poly cones have much cone break up or if they're still quite smooth?
