Shamelessly showing off my new speakers :P

That's right! I have no shame :)

They sound just lovely, I had them set-up in the living room today in the picture below, but have now moved them to my room where they will get the most use, and a good dose of vinyl loving too :D

They are pretty small speakers o_O

But they have a big sound and can go very loud and still sound great.

Cheers though :D

Hmm, that's the second thread posted recently which was meant to be posted in Audio... :/

Some Green Room / Audio tom foolery, I suspect!

Good looking speakers, what amp is that?

Thanks for the comment, as far as the TV goes,well yeah it sucks but then I don't watch much TV :)

That room heater is yet to get a workout :P

Hay Frunj, the amp connected is a Sansui AU-555 from 1970-1973 :D

Very nice.

Was there a particular reason for going for shelf speakers and putting them on stands rather than tower speakers?

Don't worry about the TV - I used to have a TV that was smaller than my centre speaker, it was depressing but fine.

The tv is not part of the setup, the speakers now reside in my room along with my record deck :)

I went with these speakers basically because they do everything within there frequency range very well, and with an untainted honesty to the recording that is often hard to find in a speaker build, and while they don't go down as low as good towers, they are fast, punchy and tuneful within there range.

I think it would be impossible to get the same quality of neutral/uncoloured reproduction as the ML1's from a tower speaker at the $2400 price.

They have a good imaging/sound stage too. The size of these are deceiving as they sound like much bigger speaker than what they are.

What some may see as a downside to this honesty is that while good recordings sound great, the bad ones sound exactly for what they are, bad!
I mostly listen to music along the lines of Diana Krall, Sade, Holly Cole and older classic and soft rock, so I'm not missing out much regarding the very low frequencies :)

Edit:Oh,the aesthetics were a nice bonus, I was lucky to pick up a pair of stands that look as well as these do with these speakers.

They look great!
Wouldn't mind hearing them one day.
Although, I prefer the look without the grilles myself......if there's no kids around that is!

I like the look both ways for different reasons.

If your ever in Brissy let me know, happy to meet, or if your on the Goldie you can audition them at Southport and talk to the maker as well :)

Look nice.

I don't think i was on here when I bought my last set of speakers, so I never did the big shameless showing. :)

I invested in a pair of Krix Symphonix floorstanders, a Krix Centrix and a pair of Krix KDX-M bookshelf speakers for the rears. All powered with a Denon AVR-3803 (or is it AVC-3803?)

They're delicious, and have excellent freqneucy range. As much as I'd like having a subwoofer, I don't particularly need one. :)

I also have a shit TV. The speaker cable I have was thrown i nfor free. Had I bought it new, the speaker cable would've cost more than my TV.

Presently I have a Pioneer DV-535, and a D-Link DSM-320 connected to it. The Pioneer player is lovely and retro, but it works really well. The D-Link is a bit shitty. It does what I want, but it could do it better and the implementation is a bit rooted, IMHO.

Bed time.

Thanks Glenn.

b'_gir, They are a commercial speaker ,Lenehan Audio down at Southport on the Gold Coast designed them a number of years ago, and has been improving the design ever since, he can custom build them in as far as minor modifications go.
Like he can include a switched near field mode if needed, some recording studios have had that mod included in there ML1's.

And of course you can pick the finish, your favourite Monaro colour for example :) I opted for the raw HD3 with a stain.

He doesn't produce them in regular commercial quantities as there is a lot of work in producing just a single pair, compared the mass produced speakers anyway.

I had a listen to a pair of the Usher Be-718 and all I can say is I am glad I have the ML1's and not the Ushers.

A friend of mine has heard the ProAc R1's and said he preferred the ML1's over the ProAcs, the ProAcs retail for over $3500.

Why don't we make a sticky with people's audio setups? Each post with a few pics and a blurb about the thought gone into the setup, what its made up of and so on.
