  1. Who remembers?

    Thanks for jogging the memory. Found it filed in a dark musty corner of my mind!
  2. "FT: Halcro EC800 with your Oppo BDP 105D" "If you have want to swap mint condition Halcro EC800 with your Oppo BDP 105D, shoot me a PM" It would probably be worth putting this as the 'Price' in the product description, to make it clearer for people who skim the classifieds!
  3. What DAC to buy?

    What a great father-in-law. You don't have any single daughters do you? I'm sure the SNA boys would be lining up!
  4. Do you have an Apple device? If so keep your first step simple… get an AirPort Express and go digital optical out > your DAC of choice. You could probably do the same with an Android device and Chromecast. Both brands of device allow you to stream your Tidal or iTunes music and can be picked up anywhere from around $30 up to $150. Small change really. You can also do the same with your laptop - there's nothing wrong with using an older machine as a music source. Then you can spend as much or as little of your budget as you like experimenting with DACs to get the sound you like.
  5. Something different

    Looks great. Any 'before' photos?
  6. Consumer rights… yeah. I'm having an issue with Fight Centre at the moment where they didn't actually provide what we had agreed to. When I cited my rights to them they basically said that since I know my rights, I can pursue resolution through applicable external avenues. That's a pretty sh*tty way to deal with things. They count on it being too hard or costly for people to pursue resolution legally. Worst customer service I've ever encountered from a company representative who refers to his team as 'The Mafia'. But I digress. I would be asking the local agent to take matters more seriously since they haven't even assessed the speakers yet. I think that's a reasonable request.
  7. I can't help but think this amp would look very smart next to a pair of Dynaudio's Special Forty! Image source
  8. I do like Japanese amps… there's always something special about them.
  9. Item: Triode Corporation TRV-35SE (EL34 Integrated Amplifier) Location: Prahran or Mount Martha, Victoria Price: $1,800 Item Condition: Virtually new, immaculate Reason for selling: Not needed Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: I purchased this beautiful amp brand new from an authorised Australian retailer to use while my McIntosh was getting serviced. It has the lush signature red Triode paint job, as well as matching stained timber side cheeks – a stunning looking amp which has to be seen in person to truly appreciate it. I reckon I've put about 10 hours on it at most, but now the McIntosh is back I have no need for it. Quite a shame really as it's quite a looker with a beguiling EL34 sound. I've been trying to find an excuse to keep it, but I can't justify building another system that I don't need. Condition is immaculate and it will come with original double boxing, however it's pick-up only at this stage. Specifications: EL34 Class AB push-pull integrated amplifier Output: 35W + 35W (8ohms) Frequency response: 10Hz- 100 kHz (+/- 4dB) Output: 6 and 8 ohm speaker taps, and one headphone terminal Input terminals: 3x line in, 1x pre-in Output terminals: 1x rec-out Tube Compliments: 4x EL 34, 1x 12AX7 (ECC83), 2x 12AU7 (EC82) Weight: 15kg Dimension: 340mm (w) x 315mm (d) x 185mm (h) RRP $3,195 Pictures:
  10. Item: 11" Apple MacBook Air Location: Pickup available from Prahran or Mount Martha, Victoria Price: $650 Item Condition: Excellent condition Reason for selling: Selling both my 27" iMac and 11" MacBook Air, and going for the middle ground with a 15" MacBook Pro. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: This MacBook Air is an up-spec'd custom build and a competent little performer. Its light weight and diminutive proportions make it a delight to use. It has a 256GB SSD. See screenshot below for more details. I'll do a fresh install of OS X Yosemite for the new buyer. Will come with the original retail box and charger. Pictures:
  11. Item: 27" Apple iMac Location: Pickup available from Prahran or Mount Martha, Victoria Price: $650 Item Condition: Excellent condition, keyboard and mouse show usual signs of use Reason for selling: Selling both my 27" iMac and 11" MacBook Air, and going for the middle ground with a 15" MacBook Pro. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: This was a very well spec'd custom build when purchased, and still performs great today. It has a 1TB HDD, as well as a FireWire 800 port and SuperDrive. This model can also be used as a regular 27" monitor via the Mini DisplayPort, which was invaluable when partnered with my 11" MacBook Air. See screenshot below for more details. I'll do a fresh install of OS X Yosemite for the new buyer. Will come with the full-size keyboard and mouse as shown, as well as original retail box. Pictures:
  12. The pedant in me disagrees: Mono-block = 1 amp Mono-blocks = 2 amps (minimum) A pair of mono-block amps = 2 amps A pair of mono-blocks = 4 amps (minimum)
  13. Dynamat inside amp case

    A small square in the middle of each tweeter will also help reduce the ringing.
  14. I too have had similar experiences and would not use them again, ever.
  15. Nintendo mini NES classic

    Poop. Despite what Al said, I'm sure there's someone out there who bought one, played it, and is now over it and would be happy to move it along instead of letting it collect dust. If so, hit me up! Once the hype settles I doubt the high prices are sustainable for BNIB models, I read that they shipped 2.3m units so there's plenty out there… it's not that rare.
