PDC400s.JPG$50 Teac PDC400, as good as a $700 NAD C5422811 viewsOf course in its day this five CD player with four times oversampling and dual DACs would have cost a lot more than $50. But from a secondhand store, in a sleepy fishing village in southern Australia, this was a real steal! It has removable cover and hinges. No remote. And it works 100% flawlessly and is in excellent condition. Seen here with my headphone driver and ATH-AD700 headphones. I obtained two identical CDs and identical cables and put both the NAD and Teac through an A/B switch.Queued both CDs perfectly and switched from NAD to Teac repeatedly to try to resolve which played better. There was absolutely nothing between the two. The Teac performed as well as the NAD in every area. I have been told that if Teac went to the trouble of installing dual DACs it would definitely be a good player. I have about thirty hours of play on it in a very short time and it delivers clear and detailed music and works very well with my 2N3055 based headphone driver. Yes, a real steal!

Electros.jpgElectrostatic Speakers3091 viewsThese Electrostatic speakers are made by a company which does not make speakers but develops new technologies in electrostatics. The best way to demonstrate these technologies is to build speakers to showcase them. They also have developed acoustic filtering which is applied to their sub-woofers which are based around two 5" drivers firing on opposite directions.

The tall black panels have two 100W amps built in the base made from discrete components, one for the panel array and the other to drive the sub-woofer in the base. The black speakers have a RRP of $AU12,000. Small black panels on the table are $AU1000 a pair. The tall silver panels produced clear live sounding mids and highs but seriously lacked base. These were demonstrated at a GM of The Melbourne Audio Club, Victoria Australia.

Valve Cymer monoblocks (bottom), passive preamp, Hydra power conditioner and separate DAC and transport. The speakers are local made but have been heavily modified with external Xovers. Truly magnificent sound.

Seas-exotic-fullrange-loudspeaker.jpgNew Seas Fullrange Speaker3491 viewsThe new 8" Seas fullrange unit. Not much info available other than it will be release Jan 2008. The magnet does not look all that large, so I suspect it will be a high Q driver.

Claravox-Dogma.jpgClaraVox Dogma Loudspeakers3291 viewsVery modern looking setup. If you think it looks expensive, they are $59,000 a pair for the speakers only! I wonder how well they image with the tweeter so far away from the mid?
