  1. Interested also - but in Brisbane.
  2. Yep - US/Japan Type A plug. They plugged into the original amp - easier to just do one style of plug on a production run of amps - and then no need to have a different plug on each item. As mentioned they were either switched or unswitched - so some had power when the amp was off and others didn't. The matching tuner for the amp/turntable has the same plug.
  3. Item: Pioneer SPL110 Turntable Location: Grange (Brisbane, 4051) Price: $100 or best offer Item Condition: Pretty good - installed new belt (~$20 alone) a few months ago but have no records to play it so can't test it. Motor works etc Reason for selling: Not being used - I have no records and am sticking with cd/digital. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: Pick-up only please. Before I bought it, it was a one owner bought new in 1974 apparently. I'm sticking with cd and digital files, so really have no use for it. Has US style plug but is 230V (i.e. the amp it came with has US style plugs in the back of it but was all purchased new in Brisbane). Easy enough to change plugs or use an adapter. Good lid/hinges etc. I'm sure the lid would polish up nicely. I had a spare one of these sold as parts (no arm, platter) for $40. Ebay sellers are always asking for much more. Happy to consider offers. Pictures:
  4. Hi all, Looking for a desktop/tower case for free/cheap for a little project for my son (8 yrs) to start playing with PCs. I have most of the other parts but in particular I need a case (prefer small tower). I'm at Grange (Brisbane northside). Thanks
  5. Installing Win 7 MS updates

    Linux Mint 18 (32 or 64 bit) has a windows feel (ubuntu is more apple-esque) Works out of the box. No windows/drivers issues. And its free. yep, free. I don't understand why more people haven't switched.
  6. Thanks for messages - located at Grange (just behind Wilston/Windsor).
  7. Item: Yamaha HTR 5940 Location: Brisbane (Northside) Price: FREE Item Condition: Very Good - but has issue. Reason for selling: Was given to me, but getting it working properly is beyond me. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Its silver. Includes remote and instruction manual. So, when it starts it works perfectly. But often it doesn't turn on. Pick-up only. Ideally today or tomorrow. Pictures: pls see google.
  8. Another Hi Fi shop to close?

    If you feel like investing in realestate... http://www.realcommercial.com.au/property-retail-vic-kew-502092766
  9. Good stuff guys Main purpose - speaker/crossover builder - checking/troubleshooting parts. Maybe DIY amplifier later on (something like the first watt on DIYAudio). I'm pretty new to this so I'm in your hands. I've tried the cheap $15-20 rubbish previously but you get what you pay for.
  10. Looking at getting a budget multimeter. I haven't had any luck with very budget ones (sub $20 - they are [email protected]), so can you guys recommend something half decent for up to ~$100? There are a heaps on the market - but would be good to find something that works (well).
  11. How do these play into 4 Ohm loads? Any idea of postage to 4051?
