    Friends from Australia and New Zealand
    This thread is SBAF's antipodean meeting place, instigated by local legend @MoatsArt, and currently being looked after by me. Come here to get to know your fellow Aussies and Kiwis, share local knowledge, arrange meets and gear loaners, or generally just shoot the breeze.

    Current FRANZers
    Everyone from Aus or NZ is welcome here, from Rando to Friend and anywhere in between. Feel free to stop by, introduce yourself and let us know where you're located.

    Gear Loaners
    It's not always trivial getting gear out here, and not easy to get to listen to stuff in advance of making a purchase. Let's try and change that. If you've got gear you may be willing to loan out to others, let me known and we can list it here. This isn't a formal loaner scheme - just something to help FRANZers see what's out there, and to connect with each other.

    @Alaarx - TIII
    @alucart - AKT5p, Final Audio Heaven V, HD800 (modded)
    @Bakers - HE-500, TH-x00
    @chakku - Potential tourers: modded HD-6xx, Beyer DT880
    @Garns - Chord Mojo, PM-3, Jotunheim
    @Olor1n - Uptone Regen Amber
    @Whatup69 - HD800S, HD600, KSC75
    @Xecuter - Q701, K7xx, Aune T1

    Meets
    Meets? Hell yeah! Nothing concrete on the cards yet, but let's figure something out soon.

    Hello guys, i'm on the sunny coast. I've got a q701, k7xx and aune t1 i'm willing to loan to friends.

    Also for good friends, feel free to organise a meet with me.

    I wouldn't mind trying SDR HD800 when my studio arrives some time next month if anyone want to lend it to me?

    Also hit me up for unobtanium tubes and stuff. I have some great contacts.

    I'm in.

    I may be able to lend some things in the future.
    e.g. MOUSAI MSD192.

    @Whatup69 You have AW11? I have SW20.

    I'm in Sydney but soon to be in Perth in the new year.

    I'm a newbie to both the headphone game and the forums, Xecuter pointed me in the direction of SBAF. Keen to definitely get involved, time and gear permitting.

    Count me in! I'm in Sydney.

    I have a few things I could lend out: Chord Mojo, Oppo PM-3, maybe a Jotunheim (early next year say).

    ANZAC should always be left to its original purpose IMHO.

    FRANZ is good.

    I'm not trying to get around anything. Didn't know I couldn't post that. Guess I'm a noob when it comes to how things operate around here as I ain't very active on SBAF. Edited

    Anyone interested in a trade for a Go2a infinity? I'm looking for a desktop dac / amp of some sort, something that will work well with an hd650.. Would be willing to make up the difference in cash.

    Sorry to hear that Nathan. Wishing you better health.

    As far as managing this thing goes, I'm keen to help out but don't get much time to organise meets, loaners and patrol the thread.. i mean i could help moderate but don't think im the droid you're looking for.

    I'm happy to look after the thread. @MoatsArt if you get posts 3-8 transferred to me so I can edit them then I can keep them updated with the latest gen.

    Hi everyone, thanks @Garns for the friendly invite!

    I'm based in Melbourne but may or may not be moving back to Sydney - glad to meet some Aussie SBAFers =)
