eBay is not a good place to get accurate pricing. When people say they got there pricing from eBay there basically telling you the highest price it's ever been sold for in the world is what they expect. There is no other tool needed then hifi shark unless your looking for justification for a ridicul...

Hifi shark, use the sold listings. Select north america and CND dollars. If you have patience use the higher median, if you want a quick sale use the lower median. If everyone on Canuck used this formula the world would be a better place :)

Posts like these should be kept between two people, instead it turns into a dirty laundry situation and often the original poster pays down the line with people avoiding transactions with him and the other party involved. I feel like this happens every few weeks on here and it seems people don't lea...

I've used an anthem 225 integrated, a Cyrus x power amp with a McIntosh d150 pre, a pair of Denon POA 6600 monoblocks with audio research ls9. They've all sounded great and each of there sounds have easily been displayed with the arias. I'm currently working on a significant upgrade in the integrate...

I've had alot of speakers in that price range and it's tough to beat the focal aria 948's. They're a true 3way full range speaker with 2 x 8in drivers and they move air in an amazing way, with the 8 in drivers it fills in parts of songs that were very much muted before. I'm not talking about deep ba...

Its unfortunate he didn't have 1 feedback I guess????

I'm not sure where your justification comes from saying your glad you didn't sell to him? Yes the guy went off the rails but did I miss something??? Is this John Bowering relocated to the US?

I've had both and the KEFs are better in everyway as far as I'm concerned. The 85's are bright and have zero depth and they have bass that is tight but very much like a one note sub. The kefs are smooth and natural with depth and some of the nicest bass I've had in my room. It's so defined and each ...

Another conspiracy theory post!!!!I I also know Simon and he's outstanding to deal with. I bought a luxman l501s from him and he went so far as to send it to me cod. Since then I've become friends with him and we communicate almost daily. Simon avoids cam because they want him to pay dealer fees whe...

Shame when this happens. A serious buyer doesn't want a piece where he can't even trace the history (it's changed hands so much). And when the "renters" will flip for the same money they purchased it for it just lacks class. You sure have alot to say for a guy who has alot of zeros beside...

Najib and James hit the nail on the head. I have always wanted to try Harbeths and there just okay speakers. You can spend that kinda money and have far better results. The Harbeths were smooth, had more then enough bass and disappeared really well for a speaker that shape. However they're predictab...

I think a bigger problem is the highballers ( new word?). Sellers that ask for prices on used items that most of us can get from a retailer with a little negotiating. The funny thing is the majority of these ridiculous prices come from two provinces.

I had these speakers and they really need to be out from the wall. The 6.2 more then any speaker I have had really needed that. For one, they have serious bass impact and against the wall they will over fill the room in a bad way. Secondly a huge part of there ability is there imaging and that large...

Mangepan 20.7

I've only heard up to the 3.7 but they were powered by an all McIntosh frontend with there monoblocks and I honestly couldn't picture sound being better. I believe they will fly you out to Minnesota (not sure the ins and outs) to do a serious audition.
