  1. Cheers mate, your sentiment echoes others I've heard on the display pro. I probably should calibrate my work monitors too, so maybe I can convince the boss we need one for the 'office'... Sent from my HTC 2PS6200 using Tapatalk
  2. Hey mate, do you find that the display pro has drifted much over its life? I'm pretty sure my old i12 is waaaaay out now, and I'm tossing up whether I should try and find an old i1 pro to use to profile it, or just grab a new spectro like the display pro and run that instead. I figure being able to reprofile with a spectro helps in the long run, but the risk is in not knowing the state or history of an old second hand unit. Any thoughts?
  3. Bah, missed them! Well I'm late to the party but happy to be a backup, just in case others fall through! Sent from my HTC 2PS6200 using Tapatalk
  4. Some of my favourites have already been mentioned, but heres a few more that jump to mind: #1 dad's on JJJ recently doing FKA Twigs' "Two Weeks": Tori Amos sticking it to her record company with (among others) Smells Like Teen Spirit: Glass Animals doing Yeezy's "Love Lockdown" Sent from my HTC 2PS6200 using Tapatalk
  5. Oooh, this could be perfect. I'm looking for a basic integrated to give to my old man to go with the B&W 602s I got him for his birthday. Think this would be capable of driving them? I'll take it if so. Sent from my HTC 2PS6200 using Tapatalk
  6. Hi all, I'm no audiophile, buthoping I can lean on the collective wisdom of the community here to help me out with a little problem. Problem is simple enough: one of the drivers in my speakers seems to have a rubbing voice coil, and I need a replacement. The problems isn't chronic just yet, but I'm sure it will only get worse, and I'd rather try and sort it before it totally goes. Speakers are old Wharfedale Diamond 8.4 (part of a matching surround setup I have). The problem driver is one of the 6.5" mids, which from the service manual is "D316" (Part # ZD-31600-01). I've had no joy finding a replacement driver in my searches on google/ebay/gumtree, so I'm wondering if anyone here has any suggestions on where else to look, or alternatively what I should be looking for as an easier to source replacement to swap out in both speakers? They're old speakers and I know they're not top level gear so I don't want to spend a bomb on them, but I quite like the sound of the set for my purposes so I'd be happy to repair them if I can. Cheers! Shayne.
  7. Geez, I'd grab these too if I hadn't just bought Gary's b&w's! Sent from my HTC 2PS6200 using Tapatalk
  8. You mean you're closing tonight? I'm definitely interested, been looking for some bookshelfs for the old man's birthday pressie but I reckon he could probably find room for a full setup.
  9. Still available? Pm sent.
  10. Gah, why can't you be in Sydney! Sent from my HTC 2PS6200 using Tapatalk
  11. Aww come on! Somebody let me have a sub!
  12. Damnit, I'll go backup if lonewolf changes his mind (or if he decides he only wants one I'll take the other one at the asking price )
  13. I'll take it, thanks mate. Postage to Sydney if that's ok. Cheers, Shayne.
  14. Right, so as evidenced by the chirping of crickets in this thread, I came up with bupkis on the 'research' front, so I resorted to my usual Plan-A of "undo every fastner you can see and shake stuff until something happens". Turns out my initial impressions were pretty much right, save for the fact that the tweeter is mounted directly to the backside of the baffle, no problem, and there's some black goopy stuff dabbed in the corners and a couple of spots on the sides, between the cab and the baffle, I assume to limit vibration and rattles. It comes apart easily, but I figure I'll clean most of it off to spray the baffles, so does anyone have any tips on what I can use when I reassemble? It looks and feels very much like windscreen sealant stuff if that helps.
  15. Hey all, I'm new around here so apologies if there's a forum that this would be better placed in, I did look and this seemed most appropriate though. I've recently picked up a new set of speakers for the home theatre setup, an old Wharfedale Diamond 8 pack: 8.4 Fronts, the 8 Centre and 8.1 as surrounds. They're old and I'm sure they're budget by most people's standards here, but they're a big step up from the old HTiB we'd been running previously. I'm generally very happy with them, aside from the fact that they're the maple finish, and they're pretty butt ugly, as seen here: The cabinets I can deal with no problems, I've got a bunch of different vinyls here that I can wrap them in, but the silver baffle is more of an issue. I'd really prefer if they were just black, and I'm happy to paint them, but that means I need to get them off, and frankly I have no idea how they're secured. The drivers all seem to be front mounted with little cap head screws, but I'm hesitant to undo them in case the drivers just fall into the enclosure and I can't get them back into place again The only access through the rear of the cab would be via the little terminal plate which I think I can unscrew and remove, but there's no way I can see that that gives me enough access to get into the enclosure. I imagine that maybe the mountings for the driver are sandwhiched between the MDF of the enclosure, and the plastic baffle on the outside, and if I undo the mounting screws then I can just lift off the baffle and we're all good. Is that right though, or am I just about to open myself up to a world of frustration and swearing? Any help would be appreciated peeps! Cheers, Shayne.
