  2. SA - QLD Road trip

    Just drove (solo) from Adelaide to Gladstone (Tannum Sands) QLD. Left 6am Friday morning, got to Dubbo, NSW 7pm. Had a lazy Saturday so only got to Taroom, QLD on Sat night. Arrived Tannum Sands at lunchtime today. The 2002 RAV4 never missed a beat. Listened to a lot of ABC radio and local stations along the way. Good to hear AM is going strong. My CD playlist was as follows: Bower & Wilkins / LSO Schubert Piano Sonatas / Paul Lewis Respect, The Soundtrack to the Soul Generation The Best of The Doors Queen Greatest Hits driving QLD style

  8. Wouldn't it likely be not enough 3D TV sales to justify support and combined with future expectation by manufacturers that streaming is likely to be mainstream movie delivery to the masses. Therefore reinforcing the POV not to continue with 3D TV's. Was pricing of 3D TVs an issue? If they attracted a premium over non-3D TV that likely didn't help sales.

  12. Jcat appears to be his current cable (mine is 18months old and was his previous reference cable). As far as I can ascertain he is still in business and has a good following. The effect of his cable, I don't know but the music sounds good. Take care. Frank
  13. Audio DBX (or DB) results have been shown to be unreliable when participants have not been adequately trained or when time between comparisons takes too long (audio memory). Here At the end of the day we all have reasons for whatever position we hold. Trevor is almost evangelical about this topic (and a few others) but his opinions are often considered & then ignored by many people. Approaching any topic with the mindset that it cannot possibly make a difference is as closed minded as the quoted 'to approach their purchase with an informed open mind'. Its only audio after all.
