We've done the hard work for you

Here at Miranda Hi-Fi we believe everyone should have access to great music regardless of what your budget is, so we've assembled some great HiFi packs for all you quality audio lovers out there. Whether you are into vinyl, or one of those "old fashioned" types who still uses CD's we've got you covered.

Starting at the entry level is the Rotel A10 amplifier and Project Speakerbox 5. You can pair it up with either the Rotel CD11 or Project Essential III, or both (just ask us if you wish to order online). This setup is perfect for those who are just starting out with their first real Hifi system. It is a wonderful sounding system that is effortless and musical with plenty of depth and body.
CD System 1
Turntable System 1

Next up is the Rotel A11 amplifer and Project Speakerbox 5 S2. We've paired this with the matching Rotel CD11 or the venerable Project Debut Carbon with 2M Red stylus. The amp has a smidge more power, but a greatly improved power-supply so it can handle more demanding speakers. Bluetooth is also built in to this amp. The Speakerbox 5 S2's have an upgraded tweeter, crossover and cabinet for greater detail and presence. The Debut Carbon is the number one selling Hifi turntable worldwide and with good reason. It is accurate and has an amazing warmth and body to it.

Turntable System 2

Our next pack features the Rotel A12 amplifier, the same Speakerbox S2's but moves up to the Rotel CD14 or the Project Debut Carbon Esprit. The Rotel A12 has an even bigger amplifier and power-supply as well as an integrated Wolfson DAC. Wolfson have built a great name for themselves in the Hifi world as making great sounding DACs that never fatigue. The CD14 improves the CD mechanism as well as an improved power-supply and output stage. The Debut Carbon Esprit takes everything amazing about the standard Debut Carbon and makes it better. It now comes with an acrylic platter for superior vibration suppression and an electronic speed controller for pitch perfect speed.
CD System 3
Turntable System 3

Lastly is the range topping Rotel A14 amplifier and Speakerbox 5 DS2. Source is handled by the Rotel CD14 or the outstanding Project 1xpression Carbon Classic. The Rotel A14 features a 32bit Asahi Kasei DAC which is just perfect for Hi Res audio. Along with the upgraded DAC is a more powerful amplifier and power-supply to handle load required for the Speakerbox 5 DS2's. These speakers belie their size. Detail in abundance thanks to the upgraded tweeter and a cabinet that assists in giving a full rounded sound that is toe tappingly musical in nature. The Turntable has an improved tonearm, and rather heafty metal platter and premium finish that you can stare at for days.

Rega Planar 8 Review

Brought to you by The Ear

A few years ago Rega set out to build the ultimate turntable, they looked at completely new ways to create a plinth with massive stiffness and negligible weight and used technology from F1 and aerospace to create the Naiad, the only cost no object product the company has ever built. The research that was done for that project proved to be invaluable for the development of more affordable turntables, the first one to really benefit was the RP8 launched five years ago. This was the first Rega to be built around a foam cored plinth cut down to skeletal form to keep the weight as low as possible. It didn’t always look skeletal because the removable surround gave it a conventional rectangular appearance, its real purpose was to provide hinge points for a lid. With the Planar 8 Rega have abandoned this approach and built an entirely skeletal turntable, their first unless you count the rare as hen’s teeth Naiad.

What’s more surprising is that the new plinth is a different shape to the RP8 (and likewise the RP10), presumably the decision to live without a lid and the requisite support gave Rega complete freedom in this respect. All a turntable plinth needs is a means of fixing the armbase, main bearing and motor plus legs placed such that it stays upright. The Planar 8 plinth is smaller than an RP8 and thus sheds a few grams but there must be another reason for the change. Those of a cynical bent it might think that the change away from an outer plinth was done to keep costs down, which is not a problem in my book. The RP8 maintained its £1,598 price point for five years during which time costs must have risen. It was incredibly good value in my book, easily the best turntable you could buy for the money so margins couldn’t have been that big in the first place...continue reading here

New Bowers & Wilkins 600 Series announced!

 

 

Bowers & Wilkins have just announced an update to their immensely popular 600 series. B&W have finally retired kevlar in their lineup and is now fully represented by Continuum. This news has us very excited as we are massive fans of the new Continuum drivers that B&W have developed and as a result are some of the most musical speakers we have heard.

Here's what B&W has to say about the new range: "The 600 Series has been one of the most successful and highly regarded ranges in the Bowers & Wilkins portfolio for over 20 years, offering a class leading combination of exceptional performance and compelling value. Through five generations of 600 Series, Bowers & Wilkins engineers have raised the bar successively on what could be accomplished with modestly priced loudspeakers each time achieving greater worldwide critical acclaim and commercial success.

In October 2018, the sixth generation of 600 Series goes on sale. Offering a considerable improvement in capability over the outgoing range, new 600 Series makes high end sound quality more attainable and accessible than ever. This dramatic performance is enabled by advanced technology including, most notably, the adoption of the Continuum cone, first developed for the 800 Series Diamond range and recently introduced to the new 700 Series. This will provide the new 600 Series with the performance improvements it needs to remain class leading and will also ensure its visual and technical alignment with the 700 Series and 800 Series Diamond range.

Available in matte black or matte white and featuring the most accurate and transparent drive unit technologies in its class, the new 600 Series defines a new performance standard in its category.

Technically speaking, the new 600 Series an updated version of the acclaimed Decoupled Double Dome Tweeter, first seen in the outgoing range, for even clearer and more accurate high frequency performance. In the flagship 603, this technology is partnered with a new 165mm FST Continuum cone mid driver for midrange resolution unheard of in this price range. Completing the 603 package and ensuring rich, powerful bass response, 603 features a pair of our newly designed 165mm paper cone LF drivers. In 606 and 607, new generation Continuum mid/bass units usher in a new era of transparency, dynamics and sheer energy for speakers in this class."

The new line-up includes

603
  • 3-way system
  • 25mm aluminium Decoupled Double Dome tweeter
  • 150mm Continuum midrange driver
  • 2x 165mm Paper-Cone bass with anti-resonance plugs

New B&W Prestige Editions

Bowers and Wilkins have announced a new 800 series Prestige Edition. Available in both the 802D3 and 805D3, these two new models are now finished in a premium Santos Rosewood finish. This new finish takes approximately 40% more time to finish than the standard finishes, which amounts to an extra 4 weeks. With 13 coats of lacquer to really bring out the grain and colour within the wood, these are set to become some of the prettiest looking speakers available. They will remain sonically identical to the standard editions, which is great because the 802 and 805 are some of the best sounding speakers at any price point. Pricing will be available soon. If you are interest in grabbing a pair, drop us a line today on 02 6247 4844 or come visit us in store.

So magnets are pretty rad!

It finally is here, it exists, its real, and it's hella cool.

All of the things we were promised in early sci-fi movies are coming to life and its awesome.

The new MAG LEV magnetic levitation turntable has finally landed at Miranda Hifi and our inner 8 year old selves could not be any more giddy if we tried. The MAG LEV ML1 features a fully levitating platter with electronic speed controller which allows you to swap between 33.3 and 45 RPM with ease. As it uses electromagnets speed control is very good and stable and platter stability is very good too and in turn removes the whole platter vibration issue. As with all turntables though, keep cats, footballs and small children away...

It utilises a 9" Project carbon tonearm so it is nice and stiff and light, and is semi-automatic. It will auto lift at the end of the record, no return though and it requires manual cueing.

Cartridge duties are taken care of by the workhorse Ortofon OM10. Whilst this will get you going, to really get the best out of it, we strongly recommend an upgrade to one of the 2M or preferably Quintet range.

So come on down to the store and marvel at the wonders of magnets, because magnets.

PSB M4U8's have Landed!

The PSB M4U2's have been our best-selling headphone of the last five years, but now his younger, and flashier brother is on the block. The M4U8 takes all that was great about its predecessor, and combines it with the bells-and-whistles of today! With full aptX Bluetooth, Active Noise Cancelling, a bit of a face lift, and a general improvement to the sound, it has proven to be a sturdy upgrade.

Come in and give them a listen, or read more about them here
