    ohh... i was not too sure too. i was told by people in the market that there was only 1 pair in singapore. very much like the dunlavy sc6 or things like that, its just too big for most people to put in their living rooms..

    anyway, cyrus used to make good amps, i've got a pair of cyrus ones.

    I know the IIb. Very nice pair of speakers. I saw once a pair for sale in hougang. Went to see them but owner put a hefty price tag on them. Maybe it was you?

    mine's the smaller one... the IRS IIb, 5 way speaker with 3 ribbon midranges and 3 ribbon highs and two 8" per chan. the IRS I was supposedly fine tuned based on the IRS IIb. the older IRS II had woofers for midranges than ribbons.

    i had seen and heard the IRS I in singapore but the owner sold it to someone in penang already. he was driving his setup with a classe then. from what the owner said, there used to be 3 sets of the IRS I in singapore at least, but how many left as of now.. i've not much of an idea.

    mine is a little old setup nothing much examplary nor high end, been driving them with a pair of old SAE hypersonic monoblocks but my dad picked up a pair of cheap 6550 monoblocs whilst i was away and they seem to be driving everything fine.

    Just that its no longer found on market since its been discontinued.

    Wadia not so chio ... aesthetics wise ..

    But seriously, i'm just looking for a player - looks secondary too of course! - to play all kinds of music, put it this way - an all rounder.

    Currently my CDP is able to do that... but after listening too long, it gets a tad bit dry. Not sure why also.

    Keke, if you have tried Wadia, u can throw CD1 out liao.

    ps: have compared CD1 with W860 a few years back, CD1 goes out of the window straight away.

    This is the smartest HIFI comment!

    And of course,not subjective but objective. As everything in HIFI. An exact science.

    My set is pretty aged. A pair of B & W floorstander (model P4, I believe) bought from Eastland Trading about 15 or more years ago at a huge discount just before they handed over the distributorship to another company. A pair of Audio Lab power n pre-amp, an Arcam CD driver with Audio Archemy DAC (forgot the model) and Nordost flatline twin speaker cables. Now, my Audio Lab amps are kaput and I don't know who the local distributor is so that I can send in for repair.

    the wadia is really good, i had a 860 for awhile.. but the emc1 is no slouch either la.


    the escalantes are nice speakers but i might prefer something along the lines of the apogees. be it the duettas or the smaller stage. i've always had a weak spot for ribbons...

    NoNo.. all this is hot air. i doubt i want to dump more money into it. i'd rather get a rollei. btw, i've got tons of stuff to sell off.. chinese tube amps, tube preamps, roberson audio power amps, ive got an audio note pre to let go too... gosh, my house is becoming a store room..!

    Tough to do that because hifi stuff tends to be the bottleneck in the system unless you're prepared to spend 10 times as much.

    i have a ipod 80gb, with a RSA tomahawk amp and a pair of UE 5pro IEM. for portable use.

    i also have a china made tube amp(dont know anything about them so decide to get a china set to play and try different tubes before getting a good tube amp). anyway the amp has been fantastic...and using a old pair of rogers studio 5 speakers biwired w primare cables...source....DVD player from my living room....no money to buy good CD player

    so considered audiophile or not??

    Of course you are ! Audiophile is the one that loves audio equipment. Audio = audio phile = love. So as long as you have a passion for audio, you are an audiophile. No need to have the equipment to match your level of passion.

    Since I am moving around often, I can't afford to get a real hi fi set. I only have a audio technica earphone with my ipod now. can anyone recommend a good amp, headphones or speakers for ipod? All those must be portable..
