  1. Ciao ragazzi, sono appassionato di hifi fai da te, dai vari progetti che ho fatto mi era avanzato del materiale, casse Ciare, e amplificazione Hypex, non avendo nulla in mente mi sono fatto convincere da mia figlia di 9 anni a fare un anteriore per il nostro proiettore.. Qualsiasi tipo di consiglio è ben accetto, grazie!! ps: seguiranno altre foto.
  2. Further information: Up for sale is a pair of Focal SM9 3-Way Active Studio + Stands in good condition except one blemish in the corner of one speaker. Beautiful sounding speakers. 5 star from WhatHifi https://www.whathifi.com/focal/sm9/review The rrp was $6,000 for one speaker so $12,000 for a pair plus $600 for Stands. Grab your bargain! I am also willing to throw a high quality 3 meter pair of XLR with the sale. No original packaging but happy to box and ship at buyer's cost and risk. Any questions please pm. Thanks for looking https://youtu.be/SL2TMhZLhls Photos:
  3. Selling a pair of Elac NAVIS ARB-51 Active 3 Way bookshelf speakers in piano black. These are in absolutely new condition, they were used for a few hours in my spare room and then packaged up. Was planing on enjoying them but haven't had the time to. Balance of 2 year warranty. Comes complete with all original packaging. Feel free to ask any questions. "Quick spiel" ELAC’s new Navis Series answers every minimalist audiophile’s dream of a no-compromise powered speaker driven by best-inclass amplifiers that are truly deserving of the name “high end.” While most powered speakers rely on Class D digital designs, ELAC engineers build in 300 watts of pure analog amplification—for maximum power and exceptional sound.
  4. Further information: These are a brilliant active speakers that also look wonderful (in the Museum of Modern Art) They are in fairly good condition, but have a few minor marks on the top plates from when they have been transported by a precious owner (see pics) I will include with these a pair of cables to connect these to any RCA pre-amp/volume controller output which means they can work with streamers like a Bluesound, RPi streamer, Volumio Primo, Acrylic S50, etc. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask below.

  5. Item: MARCHAND XM44-2AA 2 way Single Ended Electronic Crossover for Active system + extra cards Location:Sydney Price: $1100 - Shipping additional Item Condition: 9/10, Like New in original carton Reason for selling: Moved on to a 3 way crossover Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, EFT, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Comes with one set of cards in unit -800Hz +48db, Additional sets are at 3Khz (2980Hz) +24db and 800Hz +24db Great opportunity for some enthusiast who wants to drive a 2 way speaker with different amps. The unit is single ended as I have a single ended system. The unit is in great condition and there are no visible scratches. Makes a humongous SQ difference over a digital crossover like the Behringer DCX2496. The unit is ultra silent and comes with a normal power chord too. Comes in the original carton and is well packed to travel interstate if needed. Additional crossover boards can be ordered direct from Marchand for different crossover points as these are fixed on cards (as suggested to an enquiry that came through). Please PM me for any more details or queries. Pictures:
  6. Item: AMC 2445a Location:Maitland NSW Price: $200 Item Condition:Used Reason for selling:No more space! Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info:A very good sounding power amp, shoots WELL above it's price point! Grab a bargain for a two way active system... Pictures:
  7. After some fantastic feedback after the first demonstration of the latest active version of the I-93MKII speakers at the Melbourne international HiFi show and sending them for a couple of private demo's they've finally landed back in our showrooms for audition. Connected to the outstanding DEQX to control the cross over requirements and with three channels of amplification on board each speaker (600 watts in total!) they're sounding pretty darn good. You can see the image below, standard passive version back plate next to the active one. In this instance we're running from the DEQX processor via balanced XLR cables to the internal amplification. We will release further information about these and the other active options we're finalising. Basically expect active versions of the current signature range, and upgrade options for existing owners. Thanks for all the support to date and we're looking forward to some really cool stuff for next year. cheers and thanks again, Simon and the VAF team.
  8. Item: SVS SB-1000 Location: Townsville (Can freight) Price: $600 Item Condition: Excellent Condition (Used) Reason for selling: Surplus to needs Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This is an absolutely excellent subwoofer, was using it with my Dynaudio Excite X12's however due to space constraints downsized that system and do not have space for the sub either. Sub is approximately 12 months old. Will come with its original box/packaging and cable. Feel free to message me if you have any queries, or for a freight quote. The box dimensions and weight are as follows: 462x477x485mm 15.3kg's Pictures:
  9. Further information: Pair of Dynaudio 200XD active speakers in gloss white including Dynaudio connect box. Remote has some decals a little worn. Also included pair of digital rca cables from Audio Principe to connect direct from a streamer to speakers at highest possible 24/192 resolution & isoacoustic pucks (x8). Items are in excellent unmarked condtion and working beautifully. I do not have original packaging but do have the speaker "socks" and the box that I received the speakers in. Can assist with shipping.
  10. My first set of speakers were purchased at the ripe old age of 12 after saving months of paper round money. You could say I was bitten by a love of music and audio quite early, influenced as I was by my father's audio system purchased with the windfall from a horse bet! Since that time I have been fortunate to own a varied and eclectic range of speakers in the pursuit of my audio nirvana over the last three decades. Everything from stacked active Quad ESL57's, Tannoy D700's, a TAD based 2-way system, Magneplanar IIb, Equinox Jupiters, VAF I-93 and most recently, ADAM Alpha 5-way actives. I have been fortunate to live with speakers of a wide range of characteristics and capabilities and heard many other systems in between, and so have developed a rather discerning ear as a result. In 2006 I was fortunate to meet and spend an evening with a legend of the Australian Audio Industry, John Burnett of Lenard Audio. I sat quietly in Johns garden shed in awe at the sound of his 4-way active Sarabandes. The power, the immediacy, and realism was something that totally belied their humble looks and relative cost. I knew I was in the company of a true expert of audio design. Time spent reading Johns website and its education pages and learning about his various designs reaffirmed the impact the Sarabandes made on me that evening. This Experience inspired me in 2008, to build up a passive 2-way MTM system using TAD 1601a/4001, this gave me a real taste of what an endgame speaker was potentially capable of. The immediacy and realism that those 15" cones and a 4" compression driver could generate was exciting & intoxicating, but my meagre DIY skills were unable to address the many crossover related SQ issues that plagued the sound and so I eventually sold them on for something more conventional. As I learnt more about Johns designs and his origins in valve amplifiers and high-efficiency systems and his schooling in classical audio science from the 60's, back before marketing took precedence over SQ, I knew that I had to re-visit my unfinished business with high efficiency and TAD. Recently John and I discussed my requirements - superlative realism, uncompromising dynamic range and world class bass capability being three attributes I could not live with out. However, I wanted something that was relatively compact ie under 1.5m and 100kg as I wanted to live with these for decades to come. John told me about a design concept that he had been waiting to realise which had been bubbling away in the back of his mind for at least the last ten years that embodied the accumulation of his lifetime's knowledge. A system that had the attributes I was seeking and the makings of being my endgame system which brings me to the point where I can finally step off the audio merry go round. So, speakerless and determined to own a system approaching the very best, I have commissioned John to build me a 4-way active system based on this concept utilising TAD drivers and dubbed the Symphony. It will utilise 4 x 12" compound cavity loaded bass per side, TAD 1601a for mid bass, a TAD TD-4001 compression driver and the TAD ET-703 horn loaded tweeter. Amplification will be four channels of Johns hand built AB design with active crossovers. I was fortunate to hear an early prototype this last weekend whilst back in Australia and to state the SQ was astounding would barely be doing what I heard justice. I lack the vocabulary to describe the prototypes sound without slipping into the usual audio jargon but it goes without saying, I am super excited at the prospect of owning a system that is truly my endgame. The bass energy was huge and incredibly resolving, John explained that the Symphony bass system was equivalent to 2 x 15" drivers in a sealed 16 cuft box per side. I will keep this thread updated as development work progresses but for now, here's a few pics of the concept to date and some of Johns less WAF friendly work. Cheers, Simon
  11. Sorry to bring up an old thread but i guess you dont do these anymore Macca?
  12. Looking for other 4 tower speaker system owners to share experiences. Having come from a traditional large floor standing speaker the learning curve has been steep for myself. I have found a setup that I am extremely happy with but the journey has been quite challenging due to the many variables associated with a 4 tower system. I appreciate there are many different types, manufacturer's and what will work in one room may differ but I expect a lot of the pitfalls and tips to be similar .A long shot as not too sure how many SNA members have experience with 4 tower speakers but any input appreciated.
  13. Item: Lenard Audio Opal Class System Location: Sale Victoria 3850. Auditions welcome. Will help with shipping to any location. Price: $65,000 please read description Item Condition: Fully refurbished as new condition Reason for selling: Needs a new home Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD. Extra Info: This Lenard white Opal system was commissioned in 1988. The charter was for the system to be (a) of the highest fidelity (b) the best JBL classic speaker components and (c) be capable of giving an experience of actually being at a real concert. The original commission budget for this this system in 1988 was $65,000. Lenard systems are brought into the world by those with the means to do so. It is difficult to put a value on something that is virtually never sold in the secondhand market. The true valuation can only be set by the new owner and will be respected. Anyone who knows Lenard systems will tell you their owners keep them for life. The person who charted this system also had his music room acoustically designed by the late Richard Priddle. The passage of time and an unforeseen change in circumstances has resulted in this system looking for its new home. The new owner will immediately recognise this system and will have an environment that is perfectly suited. Most of all he/she will be passionate about music and been longing for a system that transcends all limitations. This Lenard white Opal system is 4-way active. Each speaker stack has two x 15", a 12", a compression-driver horn and a slot radiator. Beside each speaker stack are the amplifier towers. Each amplifier tower has five 100 Watt valve amplifers. Each amplifier is Ultra-Linear, Class AB push-pull. All twenty KT88 valves have been renewed and the system is in as new perfect working order. Each amplifier tower also has solid-state amps. The towers can be switched between valve amps and solid-state amps in real time. As yet no one has been able to pick the difference between the valve and solid-state amps. This being one of the many astounding achievements of Lenard design. The cabinets were originally diamond white. The system had been moved and stored and now resprayed satin white. This decision was made so the new owner could change the color to suit his environment or return it to its original diamond white with minimal extra cost. The system is being looked after and located in Sale Victoria. One cannot speculate as to how this system performs, it must be experienced and will be made available for audition to all interested parties. This system belongs to a dear friend of mine, I am listing here on his behalf. Please PM me if interested and I will put you in direct contact with the owner. Pictures: There are only 4 of these valve towers in existence. 2 with the Canberra Opals, and these two. Built to last a lifetime and infinitely serviceable. System when it was originally commissioned.

  15. I am building 4 way active speakers and need a 8 channel power amp to run each driver separately. Any recommendation? they will need to handle a 4 Ohm load. Drivers are as follows: Upper Bass - ScanSpeak 22W/8851T-00 8"Revelator Woofer - 8 Ohm Midrange - ScanSpeak 12MU/8731T-00, 4" Illuminator Midrange Tweeter - ScanSpeak D2908/7140 Beryllium Dome Revelator Tweeter - 8 Ohm Midrange – Another 12MU/8731T-00 wired in Parallel with the one above (MTM) 4 Ohm (8 Ohm in parallel) Lower Bass - ScanSpeak 32W/4878T Revelator 13" Subwoofer - 4 Ohm
  16. Item: Behringer DCX2496 and DEQ2496 pair Location: Perth Price: $300.00 Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: Surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (add 3%), Bank Deposit Extra Info: I can post for $50 Australia wide. These were my crossover and equaliser at one time in my active Tannoy + Eminence setup. I have gone pack to passive for now. I never had a problem with either of them. When I dragged them out to photograph the DEQ came up with an error. I opened it up and re-seated the only two connectors able to do so and it fired up no problems. The tyranny of sitting idle I guess. So I have priced this for the one unit and you get a bonus one. There are a ton of books with them and you can see I have made some custom Tasmanian oak end pieces. The original rack mounting ears are in the plastic bag with the screws. Grab a bargain. Pictures:
  17. Further information: I was using these in my WFH setup but I have just upgraded to KEF LSX. The are great bang for buck and paired with the sub (Yamaha YST-SW315 add $50 if you want that to) it is a really fun 2.1 system for an office near field or a bedroom or garage. It would bring a smile to my face every now and then, but upgradeitis gets us all FYI rest of the system was a Elekit preamp (I am keeping) and a Pioneer N-50A (also for sale). It's the cheapest 2.1 around at the moment. I have the box for the monitors, power cables and manual so can post them at agreed additional cost. Original price was $500 brought from StoreDj. https://www.musicradar.com/reviews/tech/fluid-audio-f5-597149 Any questions please let me know.

  23. I've just moved to Berlin for about 6 months and have left my stereo at home in Melbourne. I'm therefore on the market to make a fairly quick purchase of a pair of active monitors to be powered by my laptop, Jkenny Mk3 and Audio GD 10.32. I don't have a car here, nor a lot of time to get around to audio retailers and try out different monitors. The reason I've nominated these two models is that both can be bought for around 1000 euros here, and that they are both well-regarded, popular models with good resale. The system will be used for both general listening and for some mixing/monitoring. I'm looking for tonal neutrality, with no need for high SPLs. I've heard a few Genelec monitors in the past and like the sound of them. My impressions have been that they are maybe not highly revealing, but have a very neutral tonal balance and are enjoyable to listen to. The published measurements, if accurate, are also very good for the 8030As. I've never heard the Neumanns, nor can I find any measurements, although they are reputed to be a "revealing" speaker. Simply because I've heard the Genelecs, they are my first preference at this stage. Has anyone had experience with these two monitors? Cheers, Andreas
  24. Hi all So I am trying to wrap my head around trying to actively bi-amp my system. Currently have a Denon receiver, Halcro power amp and Paradigm tribute speakers (3 way) that have 2 sets of cable posts that are passively bi-amped. I understand if i install a crossover between the receiver and the power amp at the correct frequencies it will make a 2 way active bi-amp scenario but do I have to remove the crossovers from inside the speaker? Are the bottom posts and therefor bass drivers (with bridging links removed) separated from the top posts for mid and tweeter? Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
  25. Item: Complete Active System (minus speakers). Comprising of 1 x Najda (diy deqx system) and 2 x 3 channel amplifiers (Ska Audio modules) Location: Jimboomba Qld 4280 Price: $1800 1500 ONO Delivered for whole lot ..or $900 for Najda dsp and $400 for each 3 channel amplifier if sold separately. Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Recently gone back to passive to get some room back(1 less amp spot) Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This system would be great for those who would like to go active. It includes the Najda DSP which is basically similar to a DEQX. This has 8 x outputs which come from it's inbuilt dac. It is controlled via pc software/interface and has everything you could think of. 1. Najda DIY Deqx with very low noise power supplies. Info can be found at Najda website. Najda Overview Najda is a multi-purpose stereo applications electronic board designed to sit at the heart of custom sound systems, between sources and amplifiers. Najda indeed is both a multi-way DSP filtering processor, and also a complete interfacing solution providing the same comfort of use one would expect from a modern integrated system - but in your custom package. Najda as a multi-way processor Najda takes on its input an analogue stereo signal or a digital one - it can be SPDIF coaxial, SPDIF optical or merely I2S. The latter suits particularly well to a USB to I2S converter. Digital signals pass through the onboard sample rate converter so that there's no need worrying about the source's sampling rate. Outputs are available in various forms too. 8 unbalanced analogue outputs, with analogue volume and configurable level, let you feed immediately 8 power amps in order to build any system as large as 2x4 ways. If you have special requirements - for example you'd like balanced outputs - then you can connect your own DACs to the 10 SPDIF outs and achieve a 2x5 ways system. Additionally, another 3 pairs of signals with free routing are available as I2S. In between is the dual-core DSP, which implements on 10 processing channels a wide range of algorithms useful for multi-way speaker management. Please refer to the software section to read more about the available algorithms. Internal DSP sampling rate is user selectable and can be any of 48, 96 and 192 kHz. Najda as a complete interfacing solution In order to integrate Najda into his system, the user needs to provide: A standard 2x16 LCD display - can be any size and any colour A standard IR receiver module 8 push-buttons Optionally up to 7 leds In return, the user is being given the comfort of a modern system interface in a custom package. Commands that Najda understands - via keypad or IR remote controller - are various and include of course volume change and input source select, but also tone control and balance adjusts as well as filtering preset recall. Full operating status is presented on the LCD display. As many as 9 filtering presets can be stored in Najda's non-volatile memory and recalled from the fingertip, in order to ease A/B comparisons between several filtering strategies or simply to enable different filtering options adapted to the content. Najda boasts a Learn function that allows setting the remote controller behaviour in less than a minute. 2. 2 x 3 channel amplifiers. This has 3 of SKA-GB150D amplifiers in each box. Info at Greg Balls Website. Pictures: Active DSP. Najda. * Channel Output
