  1. Voxativ Absolut Alberich system - Dual Subs + HE Speakers + Super integrated


    Nearly brand new (received in February), this system took 3 months to manufacture (ordered in December). Not even broken in.

     

    https://voxativ.berlin/alberich

     

    Voxativ's legendary Hagen speakers got the 9.87 treatment with a pair of super fast subwoofers powered by 500w amplifiers each. Their Absolut super integrated amplifier incorporates a streamer, world class DAC, DSP (running at 24/196) and a 50 wpc class A/B amplifier in one beautifully designed box; the DSP matched perfectly to the Hagen/Alberich drivers. 

     

    The resulting music is pure magic, leading them to win a few awards here and there. And tinkerers need not worry. The system keeps paying back as you experiment with speaker input vs. line; ethernet vs. wireless; isolating feet, other DACs, amplifiers, etc. The Piano Black looks gorgeous as well.

     

    Sadly for me, in the time it took the system to manufacture, I moved to an apartment with a much, much smaller living/listening room and the Alberich system is beyond overkill. Time to find a loving home for the system and build out a headphone rig!

     

    Asking price includes:

    Speakers:

    • 2x Hagen Monitors
    • 2x Alberich Bass Modules

    Electronics:

    • 1x Absolut Amplifier Box
    • 1x Remote Control

    Cabling:

    • 3x Power Cables (Basic)
    • 1x Pair of 12 ft Black Series RCA interconnects (from Absolut to Alberich)

    Accessories:

    • 8x Spikes between Hagen and Alberich
    • 1x User Manual
    • 1x Microfiber Cloth

    --- MSRP was $19,799 + $450 shipping to the US ---

     

    Asking $15,250, at which I will cover shipping for all 3 boxes within the continental US. Thanks!

  2. I got the Absolut Alberich system. The idea of dual subs have always been appealing to me, and it doesn’t get better than them being designed into speakers as stands! 

     

    It was really difficult to decide between powering the stack with the HMS/TT2/NUC and their Absolut box, but ultimately concluded that their DSP would help extract the most performance from the speaker set. I’m a big believer in “synergy”.

  3. I can help answer this! There is a lot of discussion on AS as well as head-fi on direct-driving speakers via the TT2. So I tried it with a friend’s spare Avalon Acoustics IDEA speakers and was really quite taken by the transparency. So after seeing @ray-dude’s shootout over at head-fi, I decided to custom order a pair of Super Alnico Monitors. When they arrived, the setup sounded so ridiculously good that I downsized my entire system into an HMS and TT2 fed using Farad power supplies. 

     

    Be prepared to hear something unique. If you’ve never heard a point source system, you’re in for a treat like I was. It’s really hard to describe phase coherency. The SAMs sound incredibly natural. You’ll need to spend 30 mins or so tweaking positioning, but once you have them dialed in, you won’t particularly miss a subwoofer. (Edit: of course, within reason. Omega claims 40 Hz and I felt no reason to doubt that).

     

    In fact, I enjoyed the single-driver approach so much that I ordered a Voxativ system. I had taken down the listing for my SAMs a couple of days after listing it last month, but have just re-opened my post today. @Rex95, if you’re interested, the listing is here. I will be posting it in the classifieds on AS soon.

  5. REL Acoustics - Carbon Limited (#177) Subwoofer


    Selling my near-new REL Acoustics Carbon Limited subwoofer. This is #177 of what is a very limited run, purchased local earlier in 2020 (box has never been shipped, and an additional outer box is included).

     

    REL makes some of the fastest subs on the planet. The "Limited" series are John Hunter's pet projects bringing the performance of their flagship 12" subwoofers (in this case, the G1 Mk2) into a more compact cabinet. It maintains the same driver, paint and amplification technology as the flagship. Carbon Fiber active driver (4" travel), Class A/B amplification, alloy passive radiator from 212/SE. 

     

    TONE Magazine calls it "Practically Perfect and presents it the Exceptional Value award.

    https://rel.net/shop/powered-subwoofers/carbon-limited/

     

    Includes everything as purchasing new from the factory: subwoofer in mint condition, grille, unused power cord, unused signal cable, spikes, manuals, original box, extra outer box, packaging, etc.. I'll include 4 discs to protect your floor. 

     

    Asking $2500. Local SF Bay sale preferred, but will consider shipping in the US or Canada.

    I believe I misread or misremembered. Here's the post I was looking for: 

    https://www.minidsp.com/forum/shd-series/15661-power-supply-for-shd-vs-shd-studio#41754

    Happens to the best of us! What I believe the author of the quoted post was trying to say is that analog sections are often powered by +/- 15v rails. The SHD very well might also (doing its own regulation from 24v to 15v on board).
