  1. I made up some pine stands and isolated them from the desk with some furniture pads. I wouldn't sweat it too much as long as you get the height right. I.e. it's more important to get the speaker up of the desk. Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk
  2. Item: W4S Recovery USB Reclocker (revision B) Location: Glenbrook NSW (10 mins from Penrith) Price: $190 plus postage if required, Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Not using USB currently. Payment Method: Cash (or Paypal as family/friends), Extra Info: Terrific little upgrade to your USB audio and it doesn’t really add you your box count as its so small, (think matchbox). I have the original box and accessories. Mr Darko definitely rates it.
  3. Schiit New Preamp Freya

    Yup so is their new usb to spdif Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk
  4. Yes they should work. Each plug only needs to accommodate 2 cores for the 4S11
  5. Freebie with donation to SNA

    Yes it can be disappointing. I've offered freebies before and had someone put up their hand. We arranged a time one evening. I left work early to make sure I was home and they just didn't show up. They didn't return any of my messages either. Anyway back to your question, maybe set a nominal value for the item i.e $20-50 bucks which you can then donate. Otherwise maybe limit the offer to members with say 50 plus replies to weed out the opportunists. Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk
  6. Beer: "proof that God loves us"

    I'm loving the dark beers in winter. I will keep an eye out for it. Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk
  7. I've been using Jriver for about 6 months now and I quite like the interface and functionally. It was about $60 from memory.
  8. I've been mucking around with my PC based system recently. I was using USB via a W4S Recovery into usb on my Schitt Gungnir MB. On a whim I tried SPDIF coax direct from the motherboard to the Gumby. SPDIF wins hands down...go figure. I'm now keen to see if I can improve on the motherboard coax out with a dedicated card. I've read good things about the Lynx pro audio cards (AES16e and L22) but they are roughly $900 in Aus.
  9. Item: Schiit Bifrost Multibit Location: Glenbrook NSW Price: $590 plus postage if required. I have all the original packaging. Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Upraded to a Gumby. Multibit is awesome! Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Post - Paypal (plus fees or as friend), Extra Info: I bought this late last year from distinguished SNA member so as I understand, it would not be more than a year old. Its an excellent dac which is why I stayed in the Schiit multibit family when I upgraded. Pictures: Its in perfect condition as per photos
  10. Making muy own acoustic panels

    I remember reading that when I was doing my room. In the end I decided to treat lower frequencies first i.e. didnt cover the panels. I figured I could always add non breathable covers if my room ended up too dead sounding. In the end, I didn't have that problem so all of my traps and panels remain uncovered.
  11. Blood Drive Series 1

    After watching the trailer Ive decided not to watch it. Yuck! Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk
  12. Kids sport

    Absolutely. My wife and I love going to their games. You are right about the benefits to their confidence in other areas of their lives. My 8 yo just made the rep team too and it is another level. It's amazing watching these little tackers work the court. My 12 yo was too nervous to try out but I reckon he would have got in. He scored 40 points yesterday in his div 1 club game. I don't know where they get it from.... maybe the milkman. Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk
  13. Kids sport

  14. Kids sport

    How good is kids sport. I was pretty ordinary at sport as a kid. I spent my weekends in the garage with the band. My kids on the other hand are bloody good on the basketball court I don't really like sport but have come to appreciate the team aspect watching the kids. There is an elegance to individual skill but working as a team is like poetry or music.... it just comes together....its like art.
