  1. Hi guy's we are looking for a 75" uhd tv to possibly replace our JVC hd250 DILA projector however the prices are still a bit high for us. Was doing my due diligence the other day ,surfing retailer websites when I came across the new Sony UBPX800P 4k player on special for $398 au. World wide reviews for picture ,sound , flexibility and fastish load times are universally excellent so I took the punt. Bit of cart before horse but our Sony 5000ES BDP , while still working well is starting to get on and the new Sony will allow Steve easy access to Netflix in the home theater. Will report back once it is delivered.
  2. Restoring Luxman plinth

    I wouldn't go to too much effort with the PD264 as imo it wasn't a great turntable. If the plinth can be removed without to much effort I would remove the old vinyl , sand the plinth to a clean finish and recover it in something like gloss black vinyl wrap (Ebay and not expensive). I had a PD300 which I can highly recommend but they are as rare as hens teeth.
  3. Hi A , I recently purchased one of these https://www.shenzhenaudio.com/singxer-f-1-xmos-usb-digital-interface-board-xu208-chip-high-end-u8-upgraded-version.html to use with my Linn Unidisk. The Unidisk doesn't have a usb input but the F1 converts usb to coax and the sound quality I am getting exceeds the sound quality of my original Anamero via I2s. The F1 also has I2s output so can be used for direct connection to a dac boards I2s input if you decide to go down that route later on. I purchased the add-on aluminium case for mine which is around $35 to protect the board.
  4. Easy to remove the grilles. Remove black top plate and white trim plate(friction fit). Undo the draw string underneath trim plate , slide grilles down the speaker. Reverse the process to refit. Excellent speakers and great price.
  5. AVR Recommendation

    Hi Al , the link was supposed to be for the new AVR rather than the AVP.
  6. AVR Recommendation

  7. AVR Recommendation

    I have a Denon AVR 4520 which while acceptable for movies I find the 2 chn performance less good than my old Yam RXV1800 AVR and way behind the seperate 2 chn system. I have used Rotel ht avr's and found them great for music and concert video's but less good though still very acceptable on movie effects than the Yam or Denon. I read recently of a new Rotel avr which was well specced. Will see if I can find a link.
  8. Hi Mike , having vinyl wrapped a couple components recently the results can be very good. I bought some cheapish gloss black stuff to wrap my Linn Unidisk and the results were quite acceptable but I would recommend the 3m Dinok based on what I have read.
  9. Hi TDD , the S/N is largely irrelevant as the top plate is the only original bit. The S/N on the back of the plinth pertains to the plinth and no other part.
  10. Great budget speakers , got a set for a pal and they are an enjoyable listen with good extended bass.

  13. Won't be buying Plinius again.

    As far as the cd player goes it may just be the belt that loads the drawer. If the belt is loose the mechanism won't get to reading mode and yep , it can be intermittent . A common problem even in high end players.
  14. Won't be buying Plinius again.

    Ultimately it is not so much that products go faulty , that happens even with Rolls Royce, for example, but how the manufacturer responds imo. High end gear deserves high end support,
  15. Bought the F1 from Shenzen audio through Amazon. Passed on the case as it exceeded my budget. Will try it with my Linn Unidisk dac via spidf and later on with my dual AK4495 DAC VIA i2s. Next thing is to rebuild the 12v Linear psu for the mini-pc to swap out from the switch mode wall wart.
