Default Greetings from Melbourne

Greetings from Melbourne Australia!


Have been scouring the net nightly for 6 months after deciding to completely revamp current setup. Was using modified NVA AP50 amp with Triangle Callisto spearkers and Audio Aero CD for bout 10years. Recently got an Audionote UK Meishu all silver 8w 300B amp and ended up with Feastrex NF5ex field coil drivers which I have been playing in hinged OB. Unfortunately not many Feastrex users in Oz.

Listen to mostly Jazz, vocals but also classical and rock/pop.

Currently looking to get a new digital source setup....

Cheers
Beng

Welcome to the forum... those NF5ex are really pretty drivers. Had a pair thru here and decided they really needed to be in an OB to keep the heat under control... are you using a helper woofer?

G'day and welcome

Feastrex are well out of my budget range which explains why so few of us are using them.

Yes they are expensive drivers. Cabinets for them are potentially very cheap and once you factor all this in, the price performance ratio is IMHO really quite good!

I'm currently not using a woofer. I'm really quite a newbie at DIY audio and have no real idea of how low the bass can potentially go in OB with only this single driver. ATM low bass is really non-existent but the mids to highs are awesome. Trying to keep things simple without crossover and woofer but this may not be possible.
