  1. Apologies for being so slow in finding it.
  2. The old dog still kicks arse
  3. If you haven't see this yet it's getting a run on Foxtel BoxSets. Ep 1. 7:05pm Wednesday. Warning: Probably not for the faint-hearted.
  4. Was quoted two to four weeks at Camera Clinic with four more likely and it was suggested that I leave it until late August when it should take less than a week.
  5. Nah, they're just providing excellent customer service for one of the best cameras released in the last few years
  6. Stupid Americans
  7. Nikon was extended the coverage for the shutter recall way back to July 2014 manufacture. I might finally get that free shutter replacement I've been hanging out for. They might as well fix the shading issue whilst they're at it. Not that I've had any issues with either in the 32 months I've been using it
  8. Avantgarde Acoustic Zero TA XD 8pm Wednesday 19th July, visitors welcome. Willis Room, City of Whitehorse Offices Maroondah Highway (Whitehorse Road), Nunawading Melway Map 48 Ref G9 Contact: 9437 1249 This month we welcome to the club a local importer of High End audio equipment Cameron Keating from Maxmedia, who will be presenting a selection of European Hi-Fi brands, one of which Avantgarde Acoustic from Germany, would be a very familiar name with horn speaker enthusiasts. Cameron will be demonstrating the newest model in the Avantgarde range, the Zero TA XD. This entry-level speaker encompasses Avantgarde's 25 years of know how in hybrid horn loudspeakers. Up until now, Avantgarde fans have had to choose between one of the company's bigger, more expensive hybrid horns. Standing just over a meter tall, this new three way model is described as a semiactive horn system. The objective was to accomplish the clarity and power of its 'bigger' brothers, in a significantly reduced enclosure. Employing Avantgarde's CDC technology, the midrange driver has no passive filter components in the signal path. This results in a sound characterized with an effortless clarity and explosive vitality. The 400 mm spherical midrange horn crosses over at 300hz to a DSP-controlled 10-band parametric subwoofer. This 12 inch long throw driver is powered by a 500Watt amplifier. Partnering the speakers for the night, will be the LAB 12 Mighty Power Amplifier. This single ended class A valve amp, will be driving the mids and tweeters with only 10 Watts. Matched to its pre-amp, the LAB 12 TRUE is a Passive Attenuator / Input Selector. The LAB 12 DAC 1 will be taking care of the digital to analogue duties, with classic non oversampling (Phillips TDA 1543) and a tube based output stage. Not forgetting a second DAC from iFi the Micro iDSD BL will be taking a turn. The font end source will be a music sever from INNUOS, the Zeneth Mk II. With a system sensitivity of 104 dB, the ZERO TA is 32 times the dynamic range of a conventional 87 dB box speaker. I think we're in for some fireworks for the night.

  9. Final extended trailer...
  10. If it's dead why aren't it's legs all curled up. Perhaps it's just resting
  11. The batch lot is 14 characters including a two letter code and only batches starting with E and F are affected. Sadly none of my EL15 batteries made the recall list as I wouldn't have minded some new ones
  12. Wednesday night at the QVM Winter Night Market after most of the people had left.
  13. Last night at the seriously overcrowded QVM Winter Night Market
