  1. Plus 72c international transaction fee (with CBA).
  2. Okay. I was just wondering if the BR player is causing the effects, but as it was fine with the old sony then you're most likey right, it's probably the newer tvs. Big shame none of the tvs you tried past the test. Can you remember how your old sony was calibrated and can you replicate that on the newer models in the store? Was HDR activated? P.S. A few months ago I bought an LG but with IPS panel. Fabulous remote and UI, but crappy picture and sound quality. So i swapped it for a Samsung LCD which has a comparatively crappy UI and remote (but still fine in use) but better picture and sound.
  3. Can you compare disc against a blue ray rip of the same movie played via usb?
  4. Too bad. Play with the settings http://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/lg/uh8500/settings If you still don't like it afterwards, and if possible, swap it for a sony or samsung.
  5. Ralph doesn't need carbon bars; that fork will be sufficiently flexy. ;-) 25+mm tires will help you bounce Ralph.
  6. @President Trump ....and your fav colour is?
  7. Thanks George. I'll pass this on.
  8. Thanks George. Yeah it was a shame i couldn't get rid of the hum. Loved the sound of the Lighspeed, from memory, it is better in some ways than the W4S (more resolving, more intimate). Anthony did suggest some reasons why his amp and the LS were not compatible. I'm sure he would explain. I can ask if you'd like.
  9. Yes tried that but no luck.
  10. Thanks George. The starting point dac sounds good to my ears, but i've only had a few budget dacs to compare it to in my system. It worked well with the Lightspeed - i had a lovely sound, probably not optimal given the dacs specs, but i liked it. Anyway, the reason I'm not using the lightspeed now is because it didn't mate well with my power amp (the pair hummed), otherwise I would still be using it.
  11. Quick update. I picked up a Wyred 4 Sound STP SE from the classifieds. Does exactly what i wanted. Very happy with the sonic improvement.
  12. @rantan @IfeelaYa Thanks fellas.
