  1. What could be better than attending Australia's most celebrated festival of sight and sound, the Melbourne International HiFi Show, and picking up some prizes just by purchasing your tickets online? Not only will you avoid the queues, but you'll also save a few dollars, and you might even win one of the awesome FLIP3 portable Bluetooth speakers from JBL! See how you can be in with a chance: http://hifishow.com.au/news/win-jbl-speakers-by-buying-tickets-online
  2. Hi all, some time ago I had a house mate who took off without notice and left me with a bunch of bills he was supposed to contribute to. He left various stuff behind and I've come to realise he's not coming back for it so it's time for me to get rid of it. I have 2 speakers, which I don't know much about, that I want to put up for sale. As per the title - they are JBL E140-8. I have read a little bit about them and they seem fairly well regarded by some. I've seen them advertised on ebay for varying prices, mostly from USA with huge postage prices due to their size and weight. In order to enable me to list them accurately I was wondering if anyone here can give me some advice on what to look for and to put in the description. Obviously I can take good photos of them, I only have 1 photo at the moment which is of the back label showing the model number and serial number etc. I have seen some ads showing a multimeter connected to the terminals showing a measured value - should I do this and what am I measuring (ohms I assume?) and what should the reading be? I also read someone mention a flutter on the sinewave... huh? Apart from what I have seen online I don't really know what these should sell for - I can see what people are asking, but that's not necessarily the same thing! ;-) Any help/info would be much appreciated and if you or anyone you know may be interested let me know. Cheers, Lee
  3. Would anyone have a integrated amp recommendation for a set of JBL L5's ? I will need something with some fortitude as they are hungry speakers. Music listened to is general rock / pop. I have always liked the sound of Marantz gear. Budget is around $1500, but can always stretch. Thx in advance...
  4. Hi I tried to get some pics and a bit of info on some of the rooms, I'll have to keep updating over the next few days. Sorry if any spelling is wrong or names or prices. I should be able to present a half decent overview though. I'll just say once that all comments are to my ears, i didn't use anyone else at the show. And all opinions are mine I am not writing about any one else. If you have a question let me know I may be able to come up with an answer. Rooms are in no particular order. First up is this huge room with huge JBL and huge Melody electronics. This was a large scale sound. Big bass but just because you can have big bass doesn't mean you should. I felt it smeared into the rest of the sound. I perhaps can see why some like it but for me it was underwhelming. They seem to be making things bigger these days and then charger more.
  5. Just received my new Lenard Audio Opal active 4-way system. Made in Bundalaguah, Victoria. They have Acoustic Elegance TD18H+ 18" bass drivers, and JBL 2206 12" mids, JBL 2446 2" upper mid compression drivers and 2405 slot radiator tweeters. Beautiful Tassie Blackwood cabinets. Thank you to John and Paul at Lenard for their fantastic advice and assistance. They sound better than any system I've ever heard, price no object! The bass performance is staggering, and separation, imaging and staging beautiful. We've been glued to the couch for the last two days just listening. The Opals unveil beauty in recorded music which I never thought existed.
  6. Hi I am big fan of Bose Headphones and have been using it from the last 1 year but now looking for an alternate which should be affordable yet has the crisp and bass ? Any suggestions?
  7. Not sure if this is the right place for this topic. Hey guys, I have recently got a fixation on big woofers and Compression driver (high sensitivity speakers) for my stereo need. These JBLs are half of what I wanted (just no CD Tweeter but still with waveguide, not sure of their sensitivity) but I had always wanted to try them out, and I am glad I did. These are really amazing speakers and can't believe how low and deep these speakers can go and with neutral tone. They just sound sublime. Anyway, I love these speakers, only gripe is that these are active speakers. I like and much prefer passive speakers as it allows me to try different amps, preamps and various room EQ (Room EQ is big for me). My current amp is not that great but it does come with amazing room EQ and sub out, it just integrates my speakers with sub so much better. Unfortunately, it does not have any preouts for speakers to use it with active speakers. What I am thinking is, may be I can make these active speakers into passive speakers by removing the back plate amp and adding a new passive crossover. This way I can have these amazing speakers with good room EQ and sub integration. All though, there is no need for adding a sub with these speakers as they go quite low as is but room EQ is something I want. So, these leads me to asking, is there anyone who can help me build couple of crossovers for these speakers? Is it a right approach? What I have been able to find so far is that the cross over is specified as "1800Hz 4th order acoustic Linkwitz-Riley".
  8. Picked up a pair fo the JBL 4312M II Compact Monitors as part of the group buy below, Some official info below, I understand these were destined for the Japan market and we managed to get a few for ourselves aswell, not quite the classic wood and blue JBLs just the black versions ... but hey they'll still sound the same am sure Arrived promptly ... and did a quick unboxing... seem to be packed pretty well, from the manual can see was destined for Japan market... Getting them out of the box these are far more sturdier than expected. Quite solid actually. The dials for adjusting mid and tweeter move either side of 12 O'clock in notches either way... Grills velcro on so easily removed, nicely finished behind the grills, amazing for a 3 way speakers of this little size.... good binding posts and overall look pretty smart in the finish... with rear threaded mounting points as would expect for a monitor... Hopefully others can chime in with thoughts... and also listening experience and how these are in ownership....
  9. Hi guys, trying to find a new front tower speakers for my home theatre system and seem to have found a JBL "S 311 II". but cant seem to find any information about them. The only thing is that it seems to have is "250 - 400Watts" on the sticker. size is the 1200h X 200w X 410D Would anyone have any information about them? Would anyone know how they compare to the Axis LS-38/LS-88? Would it be better a Yamaha NS-F51 or a DALI or JAMO ? Will be using mainly for movies and some light music listening. Thanks
  10. Hi. I can pick up a Sonique SAV4, speaker home theatre system. Two SAV4 and the C1 Basically replacing my fronts and my centre. I currently have two JBL Balboa 30's as my fronts and the three way jbl Northridge ec35 as my centre. Pairing with a Richter Krakatoa sub and Jenson ceiling speakers with a denon x1300 as the amp. Basically will the Sonique SAV4 be an upgrade over my current JBL system? Thanks for your help and insight.
  11. Hi, I want to hook up some speakers to a Sansui AU7500 stereo ampifier. I have a pair of JVC SK-1000 Mk II speakers rated 200 watts max (170W peak), RMS 100W, which I was going to use, but there is a broken connector, so will need to get repaired first. Alternatively, I have a pair of JBL Decade L26 speakers rated at up to 60W RMS per channel refer http://stereonomono.blogspot.com.au/2012/12/jbl-l26-decade.html the Sansui specifications (attached) state 150W at 1,000Hz 43/43W (8ohms) (each channel driven). So will the JBL's be OK to use with this amp? Thanks, Gary. s power or 43/43W (8ohms)
  12. Hi all, I’m moving house soon and looking to expand my setup. I’ve currently got a Marantz 2225 receiver and 6100 turntable running into some DIY SB acoustic driver bookshelfs. After some good advice from member Kelossus I’m hunting down a set of JBL L112’s or equivalent. With the JBL’s though the 2225 might be a bit low on wattage... The receiver has pre-out added so I could connect a power amp. Would everyone recommend going down that path or the alternative of upgrading the receiver? I’d like to stay with the vintage Marantz and could probably stretch to a 2250 or maybe 2275 down the track if I could find one. Appreciate your input! Thanks, Matt Current receiver and TT setup. Will be upgrading desk/console after move too.
  13. Item: JBL TL260 Limited Edition 60th Anniversary Speakers Location: Mona Vale, Sydney Price: $5200 Item Condition: Ex Demonstration, Extremely Good Reason for selling: Stock Rotation Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only. This product is available for in-store audition and is store pickup only Extra Info: These speakers have some minor scuffs as to be expected on Ex Demo but they are in excellent working order otherwise. Inspections welcome. These limited edition speakers, certainly produce some wow factor. The use of a 5 way cross-over, and 12inch sub driver, Allows the speaker, to really bring alive the bottom end and lower mids. The bass response is extremely tight and beautifully warm, you think for such big sounding speaker some of the definition would be lost? it is most certainly not! These speakers create a delightful listening experience, and are a lot less directional then a lot of other speakers on the market. We recommend an inspection before you buy to ensure speakers are as listed. Auditions are welcome. https://sydneyhifimonavale.com.au/products/jbl-tl260-limited-60th-anniversary-edition Pictures:
  14. Item: JBL L100 Speakers Location: Ballarat, Victoria Price: $1000 now $950 Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: Want to try something different Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Bank Transfer Extra Info: Up for sale is a wonderful pair of L100's, rare in this condition. As far as I'm aware, I'm only their third owner from new. I purchased these about nine months ago off Gumtree, from a collector of vintage hifi. The cabinets and veneer are free of the major dings and scratches you might expect. There are of course a couple of minor dings but these can't be seen from more than a couple of metres away. Additionally, the foam rings surrounding the tweeters have been replaced and the blue grilles are new replicas, sourced from the US. In the interest of full disclosure, a couple of points. There is a slight 'yellowing' on part of one of the white bass drivers. This doesn't affect it's performance and, again, it's only significant up close. Also, the model number plates on the front of each speaker need a little bit of glue; both are coming off at one edge. Due to size and weight pickup is strongly preferred; however if the buyer so arranges I an drop these at my local Pack and Send. Please forgive the picture quality; my camera's getting fixed so I only have the iPhone. Pictures:
  15. Item: Altec 9849A Location: Canberra Price: $1000 Item Condition: Excellent sonically, cabinets very good. A few marks but structurally great Reason for selling: I don't have the room for these babies Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: From Canberra School of Music recording studio, a pair of rare fabulous Altec monitors. These appear to have new surrounds. Price wise they got up to $1300 on eBay. The crossovers alone are worth about $200 Aus They are very heavy. I can deliver to Sydney for $80. Pack and send can do to Bris or Melbourne for around $350 Pictures:
  16. Further information: The mother of all subwoofers. Watch a movie then read about the tremors picked up seismologists around the world. Selling because every time my wife walks past it she lets me know that it is very big. I’ve made a bigger one that doesn’t look like a subwoofer so I got off the hook that way. Still took me a while to let this one go. The DIY is maybe not as window-rattlingly good, but life is compromise. Spec sheet attached. Condition is excellent. Function 100%. It’s got some minor scuffing that is not visible unless you’re up close. By which time you’re deaf. This little puppy is big (see comparison pic vs blue ray movie). Won’t fit into a sedan. It’s also heavy. I can assist with the lift but best bring some burley fellas you trust not to drop it. I have ground floor ramped access.

  17. Further information: I bought the speakers just before the beginning of the plague last year from Old Bloke and shipped them to WA . custom made for JB ( John Barbuto) in the late 70ies. The cabinets are walnut veneered and up to 60 mm thick which contributes to their immense weight of approximately 150 kg each. The built quality is way beyond any usual commercial product. the drivers are: 2215 15” woofers 2420 compression drivers 2309 horns with 2327 adapter and 2310 lens and 2405 slot tweeters. all drivers are alnico. Dimensions are 58 cm deep, 73 cm wide and 118 cm high. Despite the physical appearance they play very civilised with loads of details and impressive room even in my way too small room with 20 quality valve watts. Especially at low volumes you will get a very satisfying complete sound. You can also crank them off course until the doctor comes but there is a limit for my room , it just gets a bit overload with bass at higher levels. this and the size are the reasons why I’m looking for something else. They work well with valves but should also with good SS amps. The previous owner used Metaxas amplification. Old Bloke gave them a nice Schellack treatment before they came to me so they are looking good if you like the look of big proper speakers. I kept the protective grill over the woofers for the occasional dancing kid in my music room but they would certainly look better without. I thought of getting an autoformer network for them from Werner Jagusch which should bring them even further but I decided for a smaller solution. Photos:
  18. Further information: The S4700 floorstanding generally need little introduction. The baby brother of the K2, in my opinion they represent the best value in the entire range of flagship JBL speakers. I bought these just prior to selling my K2s on here, when I discovered there would be a 5-6 month delay on my new speakers. As they are now scheduled to land in Australia mid-May, it's time to move these on. They present as brand new, with all original packaging, and have been used very little for around 5 months. Given their age and history, I have spoken with the Australian distributor who has offered the full term manufacturer's warranty to the purchaser. They were reviewed here on StereoNET recently, achieving a 5-star Applause Award. You can read that review here: https://www.stereo.net.au/reviews/jbl-s4700-floorstanding-loudspeaker-review Replacement cost is in Australia is $27,000 but there is likely to be a price rise soon thanks to the weakening AUD. Suit new buyer. They can be freighted anywhere in Australia via TNT at cost. Photos:
  19. Item: 1 x pair of JBL P36AW Outdoor speakers Location: Melbourne (3011) Price: $250 or $300 including shipping Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: No longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Bought these a few years back for $699 plus shipping and used them occasionally for about a year in Perth before moving to Melbourne. They've been sitting in the box in my shed since then so time to move them on. Amazing sound and pretty much the best outdoor speakers you can buy. Based on JBL Studio Monitors. Condition is actually amazing. They look practically brand new! Comes as is in the box and can easily ship if need be. Box is dusty from the shed but speakers are in amazingly beautiful shape and ready for a new home. Specs are in picture below: Pictures:
  20. Item: JBL C56 Dorian Loudspeakers Location: Geelong. Price: $1400 Item Condition: Very good vintage. Reason for selling: Surplus to needs Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: For sale here is a pair of JBL C56 Dorian Loudspeakers dating back to 1969! These speakers are highly desirable and collectable among the vintage JBL offerings and were purchased from a family member of the original owner. They retain their original crossovers, potato masher horns, LE175 compression drivers and LE14A woofers. The LE14A's were precursors to the more modern day versions found in the legendary JBL 1400 Array's! A little research show that the C56's routinely fetch US$1200-1500. Very efficient speakers requiring little power to be run. They were used with the Quad 303 & 33 I also have advertised. Condition is very good to excellent for 47 year old speakers with marble tops looking almost new and one small chip in the veneer to one speaker. Downsizing as I have more gear incoming and need to free up space! Happy to audition to genuinely interested buyers. Pick up is from Geelong but may be able to help with Melbourne pick up. Please enquire though! Pictures:
  21. Item: JBL L96 Speakers Location: Melbourne, Prahran area Price: $180 Item Condition: Good, but woofer surround needs refoaming and a few minor marks on cabinets Reason for selling: Changed my audio visual system Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: I bought these new in the 80s. The sales guy was trying to push me towards the Yamaha NS 10000 but I just loved the sound of the JBLs. The speakers still sound great. But as you can see from the photos the woofers need to be refoamed. They rubber surrounds have completely disintegrated. There are a few marks on the tops of the cabinets and the JBL badge on one of the cloth covers needs to be reattached properly. I put the badge in place for the photo to show I have it. Also the fabric on that cover is a bit rough in one corner. The speaker stands in the photos are not included. I will be selling those separately. This is definitely pickup only. They are very heavy. About 24kgs each I think. Pictures:
  22. Rarely used Vintage JBL S4000 speaker system. Sounds great and functions like new. Need not say much about them. Read up reviews. JBL true fans know this. Very good condition. Quite difficult to find one like this. No scratches or dents. Comes with original shipping boxes. Was originally bought new from a dealer. Could set up demo for interested buyers. Price: $1,700 (Can split shipping within Australia with buyer)
  23. Further information: I bought the speakers just before the beginning of the plague last year from Old Bloke and shipped them to WA .

I thought of getting an autoformer network for them from Werner Jagusch which should bring them even further but I decided for a smaller solution. I cannot see any other speaker for that price with this sort of build and sound quality and you are welcome to come and listen. I don’t know whether they work with low powered amps although sensitivity is high but you can bring your amp to try. Reasonable offers are invited and trade in is possible. Photos:
  24. I'm selling a pair of classic JBL 4312C Control Monitors in original condition. This is This is the version with the Pure Titanium Tweeter (hard to photograph through the grille): All drivers in great condition. Some minor marks on the boxes: One speaker the MDF frame of the cloth speaker protector is cracked: Doesn't affect looks or function at all. 'Made in USA' stamp on top. Some specs: ***Mods: I recently sold a fine 18" sub (silly me) and I tried to make a donation but the bank details were rejected. I did send a note about that but haven't heard back. Just sayin'. *** hfe_jbl_4312c_technical_en.pdf
  25. Item: Altec, JBL, RCF. Location: Mornington, Vic. Price: $500 each pair. Item Condition: Mostly Very Good Reason for selling: Unfortunately not using. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, EFT, CC, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: 3 very rare pieces here. 1. Set of Altec 805b Horns with throats. Fairly good condition. Can see everything in pictures. Will function all well but could do with a little touching up. 2. Set of JBL 2310 Hartsfield Lenses on baffles in excellent condition. 3. RCF TW-200 driver, horn and huge acoustic lens (80cm across!). Almost perfect condition. Extremely rare pieces; would be almost impossible to find another set available anywhere in the world.
