  1. Hi guys, I have enrolled in the THX Certified Video Class for the end of March. I was wondering whether there was anyone in the Sydney region that would be interested in a free TV or Projector calibration after easter? I will be offering this to the first 5 people to get back to me. This will help me gain THX Certification and all I ask for in return is a review of my work upon completion. If anyone is interested you can reply on here or PM me. I am sure I will know alot more upon completion of this course but if you have any questions feel free to let me know.
  2. I received by Pandas today after a month of production delays and 25 days in transit and my first impressions are…. they are ok… They were hyped up to be competitive with true high-end headphones (one reviewer said that it was the best closed back headphones under USD $1,500) and they are not that good. Don't expect that level of performance. What they do is provide better sound quality than other pairs of wireless closed-back headphones in that price range that I've heard, and so should be considered if you are looking for a pair of travel/commuting headphones that supplement your main sound system. Sound Caveat: This is just one person's opinion. I am not an audiophile that has tried a million different headphones. I have no special training or knowledge that gives my opinion any greater weight than anyone else's. In fairness, I probably headphones that are a bit brighter. To my ear, the Pandas are quite a warm and dark pair of headphones, and have a slightly V-shaped frequency response (nothing too extreme though). The bass is quite clean and has decent extension. The highs are smooth, but lack any sort of sparkle and air. The headphones have decent amounts of detail and are reasonably quick for wireless headphones. When compared to the Sony WH-1000XM3s that I had previously (and sold in early June in the anticipation that I would receive my pandas at the end of June…), the Pandas are basically better in every respect on sound quality. However, put them against a good pair of open back headphones with a decent DAC and amp (in my case, I'm comparing them to the Hifiman Arya and Topping D90/A90 on my desk), and the Pandas basically turn into mud. The Aryas have so much more speed, detail, sparkle, air in the treble, natural timbre, controlled and tight bass, separation of instruments, sound stage etc. You name it, the Aryas are significantly better at it. Comparing them side by side, the Pandas sound dull and veiled in comparison. Is that a fair comparison given the limitations of the Arya (e.g. its much more expensive, has no sound isolation at all, requires a good DAC and amp, has to be babied more)? Not in the slightest, but the Pandas were heavily hyped up earlier in the year by various youtubers and tech/audio websites and I don't think they quite live up to the hype. They aren't high-end hifi in a transportable wireless format that people were claiming them to be. They are a good pair of wireless, closed back headphones, that sound better than all the other closed back wireless options in their price range (i.e. don't compare them to a Focal Stellia, ZMF Verite Closed etc with a Bluetooth receiver). Perhaps another way to think about the sound quality is this: I might be making very unflattering comparisons between the Pandas and the Aryas, but I would never even think to compare the WH-1000XM3 to a headphone like the Aryas. Electronics The headphones get REALLY loud. I probably don't even use them at one-third of their maximum volume. They also have a surprisingly good noise floor. Coming from the WH-1000XM3s, I was expecting a bit more noise but they are extremely quiet. I haven't gone out of my way to test Bluetooth range etc, but they work fine for my purposes (i.e. being in the same room or next room). I also used the headphone microphone on a conference call this evening and my voice came through loud and clear. No issues with mic sound quality. Additionally, this is more of an Android issue than the Pandas, but I wish Android had more precise volume controls. Its really easy to turn the Pandas too loud, when you only want to tweak the levels a bit. When connected to a PC for a long video conference, the Pandas turned themselves off partway through a few times. This was not a pleasant surprise. I'll probably raise this with Drop to see if they have come across this issue before and whether it can be fixed. Comfort I'm pleasantly surprised at how comfortable the Pandas are. When I first felt the headband, I thought they would be quite uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time. However, there is a good amount of clamp force that avoids too much pressure on the top of my head. Further, the pads are very soft and comfy. They aren't quite as comfortable as my old WH-1000XM3s and nowhere near as comfortable as the Aryas, but I can wear them for hours and not feel uncomfortable. If the next version has additional padding on the headband, I think it would take the comfort up there with the best of them. Isolation I'm very pleasantly surprised with how much noise the Pandas block out for headphones without active noise cancelling. Its quite incredible. Build I didn't notice any issues with the build. They don't scream super durable build quality like a Sennheiser HD660S, but they don't feel fragile at all. I do wish we could fold the headphones though. It would make it just a bit easier to transport. Conclusion The Pandas do the job they are supposed to do. Providing decent audio quality in a very convenient wireless form factor for on-the-go situations. They have better sound quality than the WH-1000XM3s that I used to have and fit the role of travel headphones well, even without ANC. That said, when I'm at home at my desk, there is no reason at all why I would use the Pandas over the Aryas. A good open-back desk setup brings a level of quality that the Pandas can't come close to reaching. If you're after a high-end hifi setup, you'll have to look somewhere else. If I'm being honest, I'm considering selling the Pandas to fund a mid/high-tier IEM (e.g. Andromedas or Moondrop S8) to try to get to that higher level of sound quality. The only thing holding me back is the (admittedly extremely convenient factor) of the Pandas being wireless. Does anyone have any thoughts on whether IEMs would give me what I'm after?
  3. Item: Relist: Miller & Kreisel S300 THX Speakers (L C R) Location: Kew, Vic Price: $3k per speaker. Can do a deal for all 3 + will throw in 2 Onkyo Atmos SKH-410 modules for free. Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Need Funds Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Bank Deposit Extra Info: (Current RRP is $4,999 per) https://www.digitalcinema.com.au/mksound-s300-lcr-speaker.html They are the current reference speaker that THX use in their mastering studios. Purchased all 3 speakers over last year and half. Pref local sale but can ship if buyer pays postage. I have original boxes and receipts for warranty purposes. Two right/center speakers and one left. Each speaker is a hefty 18kg each so recommend very sturdy stands.

  5. For Sale: 2 x pairs of Klipsch KS-525-THX surround speakers. $1000 per pair (new around $3000 per pair). Manufacturer details Selling here as part of a $17000 5.2 system I bought these speakers new from Harvey Norman a few years ago. They have served me well and I would be keeping them if they were a little bit shallower. I needed the space so people wouldn't hit their heads walking past. They are very good speakers and they measure well. Easy to drive, very low distortion (in other words they play loud and clear). Klipsch call them Wide Dispersion speakers. I've measured each driver's polarity and they are bipoles. I paired them with Seaton CAT-8C front speakers and they match very well. Measurements are below taken by me at 30cm from the bi-pole null (blue), 30cm from the face (cyan) and listening position (green). These are unsmoothed, unlike most plots you will see. The slight bass hump from the crossover to 250Hz is because they were mounted flush to a small bulkhead above them to avoid people's heads as they walked past. The bass hump was EQ'd out in the final listening position response. Speakers are in pretty good condition. The one pictured has some marks on one of the faces from a driver replacement. I measured a bit of distortion in one of the drivers not long after it arrived and replaced the bass driver under warranty. It hasn't had a problem since and the marks cannot be seen with the grilles on. This particular speaker is also missing one small rubber stand-off that makes no difference anyway. The stand-offs compensate for the binding posts sticking out beyond the back surface. On each speaker, there's also a few small mounting scratches around the wall mounts on the back. Prefer Sydney pick up or I can deliver locally in the Hills area. I can also arrange shipping interstate if required at buyer's expense. Please PM for me for further details.

  11. Hi all, An upcoming move of residence means I regretfully must part with the magnificent Jamo D600 speaker system. They're reference cinema sound quality and perform admirably for music. I currently have it configured in 9.4.2 FOR Dolby ATMOS/DTS X. I'm keeping my subwoofers. So, the system for sale includes : 7 x D600 LCR and 2 X D600 Surround Speakers. One of the surround speakers has a blemish on it but works perfectly. All other speakers are as new, with original boxes and packaging. I'm the only owner. The speakers are ideal for wall mounting. Pick up in West of Sydney is ideal or I can ship them interstate. Freight and cost would need to be arranged by the buyer. If bought new the price is about $7740 for these amazing speakers. I'm asking for $4500. If you are interested, let me know. I can text pictures to you or you're welcome to have them auditioned for you in Concord, Sydney . This is a regretful sale, believe me!! I wanted these for ages. See reviews below. http://www.whathifi.com/jamo/d-600/review http://www.trustedreviews.com/jamo-d-600-review http://www.avaustralia.com.au/jamo-d600-5-1-thx-ultra2-home-theatre-system/

  17. Item: 6 x MK Sound 750 LCR THX Speakers Location: Brisbane Price: $1900 (RRP$4900) Item Condition: 3 Speakers are Brand New in sealed boxes, and other 3 speakers have been used and in perfect working order. Reason for selling: Upgraded Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Direct Deposit for Post Extra Info: The LCR-750 is a high performance two-way, bookshelf size loudspeaker utilising a 1" polymer coated silk soft-dome, ferrofluid cooled neodymium magnet tweeter and dual 5¼" mineral-filled polypropylene cone, magnetically shielded cast basket woofers. Featuring MK Sound’s proprietary Phase-Focused Crossover, the LCR-750 provides extraordinarily even dispersion of sound throughout a broad listening area with superior imaging and sound quality. Designed for music and theatre systems in small to medium size rooms, it delivers delicate sonic transparency combined with tremendous dynamic capability resulting in minimal coloration and effortless handling of voices, percussive effects, and musical instruments with life-like impact, and is timbre-matched to the LCR-750C and SUR-55T. The very first product to receive the THX Select seal of approval, the MK Sound 750THX loudspeaker system gives music and home cinema enthusiasts the opportunity to experience the reference-quality sound that has made MK Sound the choice of well over 100 professional audio, film, and video studios. The 750 front speakers incorporate MK Phase-Focused crossover design for ideal driver response and dispersion characteristics. Flat on-axis and off-axis response is achieved by careful analysis of the speaker’s response in both the time and frequency domains at various angles in both the vertical and horizontal planes. Dual mid-bass drivers double power handling and double efficiency compared to a single unit, resulting in a four-fold gain in terms of possible dynamic range. Even when extreme volume levels aren’t required, the enhanced dynamic range and efficiency of the 750THX system ensure reduced dynamic compression even at moderate to high listening levels. The high-performance soft-dome high-frequency driver mounted at a 4.7° angle combines with the stylish, high-tech curved metal mesh grille and Phase-Focused crossover to form the MK High Frequency Prism System. The system provides optimum imaging on-axis and off-axis by shaping a very smooth and extended flat high-frequency response over a very wide listening area. After taking the professional audio world by storm, as an ever-increasing number of major names in cinematic audio select MK Sound speakers as their preferred reference monitors, MK Sound has applied nearly 40 years of experience at the forefront of professional loudspeaker design to a home surround system that is destined to become a classic.
