  1. I actually ended up getting some isoacoustics Gaia 2 for $400. Pretty happy about that. Thankyou gumtree. Pretty happy with the result. Now saving my pennies for a March Audio P252....
  2. Another one you might want to consider are the locally made Orpheus Apollo speakers. I bought a pair a few months ago for $1250 (ex demo) basically brand new. I think Kiat (owner) said he had a pair of two left in black. Extra bonus, they are made in Sydney and have real wood veneer, sound great too.
  3. I think it's the original as far as I can tell. Looks nice!
  4. Thanks for the reply. Good to know it's not bright. Cheers, Pete
  5. Thankyou. I will be getting a preamp as cd player is on the cards too though that will be it.
  6. Thanks for replying. Are you happy with it? Treble ok? I fear the brightness😁. Looking for a decent step up in sound quality from my NAD. What do you use for a preamp? I really like the idea of an Australian made amp and it's simple form factor.
  7. Later in the year I'll be looking at trying a new amp/preamp to replace my geriatric NAD c326 bee integrated. I like the look of the March Audio P252 power amp. Anyone own one of these beauties? I have some newly acquired Orpheus Apollo speakers and a topping E30 DAC, just streaming at the moment but a cd player is likely down the track. I haven't had a good look at preamps but something like a Topping Pre90 or a Schiit Freya+/Saga+ might be on the cards. I'm also aware that March Audio will soon release their own preamps. I'm a tota
  8. I had a look at that Mola Mola one. Yikes! Worth more than my car!
  9. Thanks for the info everyone. It all helps make things a little less bewildering. Yeah, bright does my head in as does too much bass. I see Schiit do a reasonably priced pre amp called the saga s. I wonder if that would be an ok pairing? Maybe I'll email March Audio.
  10. Thanks for the info and feedback. Would you suggest something like the March audio p252? Any suggestions on what decent pre amps I should be looking for? Sorry, even though I've had hifi stuff for 30 years it's all been at the cheaper end (NAD 7020, NAD C326bee, Toys Minstrel) so really I'm a bit of a clueless newbie😁. Cheers, Pete
  11. Hi all, Getting back into hifi after 25 years. I'm currently using a Chromecast audio into a topping E30 then NAD C326BEE to Orpheus Apollo VI speakers. The topping DAC and Apollo are new purchases. Down the track I'm looking to upgrade the amp to either of the two mentioned in the title. Looking for a basic integrated not bothered about onboard DAC or phono stage or even an earphone socket. I'm purely streaming for the moment. The absolute stretch of my budget will be absolutely maxed out at $2700 ish. Any suggestions as
  12. Hi Andrew, I did ask Kiat about this directly and he steered me away from going down that path. He wasn't keen on it. He didn't exactly say why but as the manufacturer I guess he knows what he's talking about. Tbh I'd rather put 1K towards a better amplifier. Pete
