  1. keep in mind a super ceded unit, so would take some hunting to find, but as @Kaynin found with his av8801 with help from cav locally worth the chase especially if can pick up at a good price ! and should be able to at some discount over current model you'd expect.
  2. hi field, the marantz av7702 mk2 if can get hold off, marantz have promised to fully upgrade to latest spec so can buy and dont need to spend extra on latest gen http://www.qualifi.com.au/~rightlef/index.php?page=shop.product_details&product_id=58641&flypage=vmj_genx_SR.tpl&pop=0&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=1103 primare... its a lot of money...pay for the upgradeable platform and like nad as they have just dumped with gen gone bet you they cant be upgraded to next gen of what ever... if 4k not a priority look out for the marantz av8801 its a lovely piece.
  3. SACD Players

  4. Tesla model Trois (3)

    ooh i didnt pick that up, just thought a "lift back" like the S and didnt realise it had a centre console ? why would they do that ? what is the reason I wonder ?
  5. SACD Players

    i enjoyed my sony scd-9000es for 10+ years what a gorgeous thing it was....only sold off as replaced wiht my luxman, you can decide not to buy things in fear of failing, but gee anything can fail ? basically anything electrical can just go poop... anytime even if has no moving parts. things electrical tend to have a constant probability of failure...rather than say a rising one with age as mechanical things do. so yeah does that mean we dont buy anything with electronics because it can fail anytime. doesnt seem sensible to me....

    an article on the 3's interior - am not sure i like... prof i can see the tiny little aircon controls on one of the screen shots... gee is this any better than using touch screen on a phone in a cradle while driving ? http://www.motortrend.com/news/video-exclusive-a-closer-look-at-the-tesla-model-3s-interior/

  10. Using an AVR for Stereo Sound.

    the AVR is primarily a digital beast and i would stick to optical or digital connections why the 2 sets of speakers ? no option to just settle on one...and switch the sub on/off if need be to run with without sub as you want ? and yeah leave the avr on 8 ohm,

    going back to minimalistic dashboards... this is merc's Vision .... for their electric car, https://www.mercedes-benz.com/en/mercedes-benz/design/mercedes-benz-design/concept-cars/vision-mercedes-maybach-6-cabriolet-ultimate-luxury-of-the-future/ and it debuts at "Premiere at the Monterey Car Week.

    driving back and forth to regional areas best thing I've found to avoid kangaroos is ...and i made this resolve some 20 years ago.... was to NEVER drive at dawn or dusk in kangaroo thriving areas. this came from a decision some 20 years ago where I came close to hitting a roo where it happened to hop along side my car pretty randomly but fortunately for me and him/her not in front off or into my car. there was no knowing where it was going when I saw it, and fortunately it darted off in an opposite direction. hope never ever presented in situation like that again... I dont blame those swedes... those kangaroos are very much very random in way they hop around ! and can dart of in almost any direction it would seem. good luck any computer predating when I suspect the animals themselves not knowing just responding to some "animal instinct" on the spot when presented with a very fast moving object.

    even peugeot wiht the 308 has had criticism of their missing aircon physical controls. the thing with physical controls you can take one look at them and see where they are at and adjust to suit. and physical controls are always there, dont have different menu pages etc have to delve between.
