  1. Hi Clay Looks great and very keen to try this, the fact it can cater for MM and MC is great, do you know approx pricing? Cheers Barry
  2. Further information: Rega RB330 Tonearm (Melbourne) Designed using the latest 3D CAD & CAM technology, the new RB330 is the culmination of more than 35 years of tonearm design experience. Featuring a brand new bearing housing and our latest tonearm tube designed using intelligent redistribution of mass,ensure this arm will exhibit fewer points of possible resonance. Extreme stability with almost friction free movement from the new high precision bearing assemblies guarantees to gather more information from your vinyl than ever before. Featuring a new bias assembly, re-designed stiffer vertical bearing housing, integrated arm clip and an improved spring housing with easier to read numbers.Rega made, new low capacitance phono cable with Neutrik plugs.Improved lower friction, precision horizontal and vertical bearings. Rega is famed for its tonearm designs. One unique characteristic of these designs is the achievement of near frictionless movement horizontally and vertically whilst having no measurable free play in the bearing assemblies (and in reality one or two microns of pre load). So, why has Rega spent over thirty years and invested so heavily in this area of tonearm design where the removal of even microns of movement has been pursued? Cart not supplied, Tonearm is in mint condition - needing to sell to upgrade. RRP$ currently approx $799 A donation will be made to SNA upon sale.

  3. Hi there can I ask when you purchased the Shunyata cables? Thanks Barry
  4. These are so bloody tempting, would they be too over bearing in a small listening area do you think? I currently have a pair of Kef R3's in place. Cheers Barry
  5. Thanks, and yes the most important and yet cheapest tweak known to man... Its funny actually how many people I see that have done the same... Early days my dealer sold me a Stillpoints @ $800 as a weight to reduce vibration and enhance the SQ needless to say I sold it....
  6. Its been an incredible time over the past 18 months for many reasons, I used covid lockdowns here in Melbourne to venture into the world of Hifi (having previously only owning Sonos gear through my house). Through this time there has been many learnings and countless debates on facebook pages I am now at a stage where I am pleased with my set up with the exception of new speakers in the next 6 - 12 months (I know most people get their speakers first, I went the other route) For those interested the below is a list of my gear... Router end of listening room Synology Nas (for local files). SoTM sNH - 10G Network Switch - Gieseler Kraftwerk II Linear Power Supply. I7 Nuc - 32 Gb Ram inside a Asaka Turing case - Gieseler Kraftwerk II Linear Power Supply. Optical Fibre - Vertere Pulse - HB Ethernet RJ45 Cables. Hifi Rack Bonn N8 Silent Angel Switch Gieseler Kraftwerk II Linear Power Supply. Optical Fibre - Vertere Pulse - HB Ethernet RJ45 Cables. dCS Bartock Dac. McIntosh MA 352 Amp. Synthesis Roma 79 DC Phonostage. Rega P6 Turntable - Van Del Hul The Frog Cart (updating to have the RB3000 Tone Arm). Kef R3 Speakers on Solidsteel SS5 stands. Furutech - Speakerflux cables. Furutech Power cables. Isol - 8 Power boards, might be looking to update to Shunyata Delta Power Conditioner. Van Del Hul interconnects. Isoacoustics Isolation under most components. Ben Burton Hifi Rack. Its a great hobby but you do hate that upgrade urge
  7. Further information: Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones Lose yourself in silence with industry-leading noise cancellation Escape the sounds of the city with industry-leading noise cancellation. The noise cancelling technology in the WH-1000XM3 headphones is our most advanced ever with close fitting ear pads and our HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1. More power = even less noise With our new HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1, noise cancelling power is greatly enhanced. Having a dedicated NC processor also ensures the reproduction of your music is never compromised due to processor performance. Noise cancelling made to fly Unique Atmospheric Pressure Optimizing delivers optimal sound at high altitude, so you can enjoy noise cancelling at its best when you fly. Sound you can believe in A built-in amplifier integrated in HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1 realises the best-in-class signal-to-noise ratio and low distortion for portable devices, and delivers exceptional sound quality. Powerful 40mm drivers, with Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) diaphragms, make the headphones perfect for handling heavy beats and can reproduce a full range of frequencies up to 40kHz. Wireless freedom, Great Sound in silence LDAC transmits approximately three times more data (at the maximum transfer rate of 990 kbps) than conventional BLUETOOTH® wireless audio, allowing you to enjoy High-Resolution Audio content in exceptional quality, as close as possible to that of a dedicated wired connection. Noise cancellation personalised Unique Personal Optimizing analyses the sonic characteristics caused by head size, glasses, and hair, then optimises sound to you All day power and quick charging With a huge 30 hours of battery life, you’ll have enough power for even long trips away. And if you need to charge in a hurry, you can get 5 hours’ worth of charge after just 10 minutes with the optional AC adapter.4 Carry case with cable The supplied carry case is durable and includes a cable for wired listening. Purchased 18 months ago and I no longer have the original box, but these are in Mint condition with Carry case and all of the supplied leads.

  8. Further information: Nordost Sort Kones The Sort Kone is a directly coupled and mechanically tuned resonance control device, using a sophisticated new approach to the problem of supporting sensitive electronics. Whereas most equipment supports are referred to as Isolation Devices, this actually completely misunderstands the nature of the problem. The most harmful mechanical energy doesn’t enter the equipment from outside; it’s generated internally by the audio circuits and their power supplies. Transformers, power supply capacitors, even the active devices themselves, all vibrate as they operate – and those vibrations occur right where the fragile signal is, creating timing errors that smear and distort the music. The Sort Kone is designed specifically to deal with this threat to audio fidelity. Sort Kones provide a “blacker” background to your music. With it comes greater focus, instrumental color, depth, transparency and dynamic range. Your system will sound more natural and more lifelike, your music more lively and engaging, the musicians like better musicians – simply because you’ll finally be able to hear the notes they’re playing, the way they play them and precisely when. So, release the hidden performance that’s lurking in your equipment. • Three-part construction employs superior materials in a mechanically tuned configuration. • Bypasses soft feet fitted to equipment to provide a direct mechanical ground path for internal energy. • Can be used in triplets, quartets or even larger numbers. • Height: 56mm AC – aluminum post and base in combination with an upgraded Si3N4 ceramic coupling ball. Preference is to sell as a set rather than split, a donation will be made to SNA upon sale. No low ballers please given the price reduction and the low risk on purchase. I will need to find the packaging or happy to ship securely as is. RRP$ is currently $169 each.
