  1. Further information: I have owned these for approximately nine years. Purchased in Canberra. Unfortunately I can't recall any details of the seller , I do recall the extensive collection of top secondhand hifi equipment he had. I remember asking if they had been refurbed but not to his knowledge. These have not been played very often since owning as I lacked a suitable amp to drive them. Sound wise they are great but the condition of drivers etc is unknown. I have never had any work done on them nor removed the chrome ends. Chrome ends have some light markings could do with a polish. Grills are in very good condition. There are no original chrome stands but the buyer is welcome (foc) to the homemade ones in the pics. Something had to go either my Osborn Eclipse, Altec Horns or the Gales a difficult choice. All have their unique sound signature. Of the three pairs most visitors prefer the Gales. I can't part with the Osborns as they will be handed down and the Altecs are easy to drive.

  2. I would like to have these if still available Thanks
  3. Firstly thanks for your response Joe. I am not disputing any of what you say. I understand where you are coming from. My issue is the 50% increase of my original purchase. Simply seeking opinions on the latest incarnation and does it perform significantly better. If I am going to invest I would like to know that the increased performance is worthwhile. Maybe I could get more detail from your respondents. Happy to receive Pm's
  4. Certainly has great reviews . I would still like to hear from someone with the latest JLTI before making a financial commitment. I appreciate your feedback, thank you.
  5. Just read a review of the PP I now see what you mean re ad/da.
  6. Should have added, I do have Tube phono pre
  7. Thanks for your reply. Not being all that tech savvy please elaborate pros/cons of "ad/da conversions "
  8. No 2 for the horns and not to mention the artwork.😳
  9. Has anyone here had an earlier JLTI phono stage and had it upgraded to the latest mk5b? If so what has is your opinion of the latest version, are you happy with its performance? With a total investment of around $1550 does it stack up? I have held back having mine upgraded wondering if and when further upgrades will be made. To say I am a little hesitant is an understatement. Wondering if I will have to shell out again for the "latest" version if and when it happens. I understand the hifi industry like others is an evolutionary process. Now in the " pensioner" era I have become more mindful of the $$$'s Looking at possibly selling the "mk4" I have for what I can recoup, purchasing a decent mm phono only (as I don't need the mc facility) for around $1k investment if one exists, minus selling the mk4. Opinions please.
  10. Update, I have had a kind offer from a fellow SNAer from Melbourne to look at my Oppo once we are released from lockdown. Sincere thanks to one and all for your input it was very much appreciated. Cheers
  11. That worked and surprise surprise I have one restored factory settings. Now all I need to do is get it playing via my integrated and not the tv. You do know your way around the oppo.
  12. Ok as above. Now I have a major problem. Pushing buttons trying all settings made the mistake of changing the remote from code1 to code2 NOW REMOTE LOCKED CANT ACCESS ANYTHING.. I think this machine is heading for electronic recycling. Thanks all for input.
