        Link: http://www.legendspeakers.com.au/kurlo.html Owned since new. Comes with original box, packaging, and instructions. Link: http://www.legendspeakers.com.au/kurlo.html Used even less than the Kurka centre channel speaker I’ve listed, as it wasn’t always necessary to turn on for the more dramatic genre of movies.  This is a brilliant subwoofer from Legend Acoustics with a clean, tight and musical sound.  Thunderous performance but so controlled and refined. 32 kilograms and brilliant build quality with a lovely Jarrah finish, this subwoofer is in immaculate condition and has never been driven to its true potential.  Click on the link above for more info about its sophisticated construction. I photographed a page of the instructions for detailed info on settings for the sub.   Specifications Size: 410(h)*410(w)*410(d) Weight: 32kg Driver: 12" (300mm) v. long throw (20mm) Lower frequency: 20Hz -3dB - 400W peak standby mode - Active model (built in amplifier) - variable volume - variable upper frequency (50 to 150Hz -3dB) 
      LFE input (bypass) 300 WATTT RMS BASH amplifier   The site won't allow me to upload images beyond 0.49MB? Happy to send them to anyone.

      Owned since new. Comes with original box, packaging, instructions, terminal bars. RRP when new was $1990.00 There aren’t enough superlatives to describe the performance of this centre channel speaker. In short, it’s brilliant.  It is a dedicated three way centre channel speaker and it’s actually the top half of the extremely well reviewed Kantu 6 floor standing speakers, a pair of which I recently sold on here. Not used that frequently, perhaps 250 to 300 hours only since new.  You could say it’s just run in.  It has never been driven to its true performance potential as it was connected to a rather anaemic Denon AVR-1912.  If you’re after an ‘end game’ centre channel speaker then look no further.  This is a stunning speaker for a home theatre. I had it in a 3.1 channel system with Kurre 7 book shelf speakers and a Kurlo 6 sub (also for sale) and the synergy between them is astonishing. The sense of realism this provides is extraordinary. Weighing in at 18 kilograms, this speaker is solidly built and the finish is beautiful. Veneered in Jarrah, it has a gorgeous shine to it. Stunning, amazing, gorgeous, astonishing and brilliant! Is that enough superlatives? The drivers used in the Kurka comprise the following: Bass drivers - Scanspeak 8545s Mid range driver – Audax Tweeter – SEAS soft dome I do believe that the Scanspeak bass drivers are the same ones that Wilson Audio used in an early iteration of the Sasha’s.   Specifications:   Size 200(h)x530(w)x380(d) (mm) Weight 18 kg Use theatre centre speaker Mounting horizontal Drivers 3-way with 2*bass, mid & treble Frequency response 45 - 25,000Hz ± 3 dB Efficiency 90dB/W @ 1m Impedance 4 ohms, nominal Recommended Power 100-500 W
    • Ozrock, The WA state library service used to have a subscription at their main library only. It is gone because SAI global has drastically increased their already excessive prices. Remember it is SAI Global Ltd! A personal version of the receiver standard is $200 as a pdf. 3 concurrent users and 3 prints $381.22 for only one standard. The library subscription price is not publically exposed. https://infostore.saiglobal.com/store/Details.aspx?ProductID=1855390 $245.59 for personal use, and one print. It is a business expense which should be tax deductabler. The latest edition is May this year.  Remember that Standards Australia produces the content of the standard by a committee of industry and government. Alanh
    • Ron, The Department of Communications was doing regular surveys to find out the awareness and takeup of digital receivers during the analog to digital switchover. I wrote to them to ask the percentage who could watch HD. In a full survey in 2013 prior to the Sydney/Melbourne switchoff more than 90 % of the viewers nationally could view HD programs. At the end of the switchover 220,000 HD MPEG-4 STBs were given to full time pensioners. OneHD started in 2009 and this killed off the sale of SD only STBs. They were replaced with HD STBs all of which can downscale HD programs back to SD and PAL video for video recorders which have not been on sale for a long time let alone the cassettes. SBS's 1440 x 1080 "HD" is still MPEG-2. I really wonder how many of those SD only STBs still work. All of my 3 boxes died many years ago. Unfortunately Kmart no longer sell the $30 HD MPEG-4 STB/USB PVR. These have gone because of the huge drop in price of TVs. SD TVs also disappeared from the shops and small widescreen TVs do not cost much more than an STB and many of them will record on a USB drive. Why should SBS cater for Foxtel viewers when they make available their programs to all viewers for free? SBS would be better off following the commercials and go MPEG-4 1920 x 1080 so to remove the aliases on sharp picture edges. Of course if they made SBS2, NITV and Food MPEG-4 then SBS2 could be HD and still leave an SBS SD on air for the MPEG-2 only viewers. The reason why all broadcasters have not switched off their primary channel SD is the fear that a few viewers will complain and for commercials a loss of income. Alanh
