  1. Past hour
  2. @Cello Sweet. - Bruno is your man in SA
  3. my dads 3808 ... nearly 10 years lateris still going strong though i expect any problems wiht it ... it will be pensioned ....
  4. Cool. All makes logic, thank you all for the replies to my post. I still have some deciding to do if streaming is a path I want to go down. Opening an account with Tidal etc but I am forecasting some self justifying starting to brew within me on why I should go down this path, I am sure we all know what I mean by that LOL From my researching and reading through this thread I am pretty well set on the BlueSound Node 2i and once I decide the time to leap will keep an eye on the classifieds or go grab new. It seems quite unanimous that the BlueSound as a unit functions very well, the built in DAC is more than reasonable and the app is also at the pointy end of usability. Fair to also say that resale should I for any reason not enjoy things wont be an issue and on the flip side if I really like things and want to climb the ladder down the line same applies.
  5. And I didn't say it was correct either, just that there is an association. My amps have all gone up in weight as I've upgraded, but I didn't choose them based on weight...
  6. my unison research s6 valve jobbie though rated at 30-35 w class A pulls in the order of 270-300w not checked how hot gets.... ive always been of believe they pull constant power... any watts not used in music is shed as heat....
  7. was convinced by the wife given we are getting serious into the paella and especially how good it comes on the BBQ....that an upgrade of pan was worth considering .... far for me to say no... so made requisite purchase of proper spanish paella pan... thought id pick up their paella pack that comes wiht a few choice hard to get ingredients .... as a note to be honest am not sure why pan will make much of a difference... this one is perhaps a tad heavier and instead of the aldi one being enamelled this is raw steel. not sure what difference that makes.... it will need seasoning for that reason... as authentic article its not that expensive at $35 but goes to show how good an aldi pan can be I guess at only $9 anyways looks like we are set for another round of pealla and finding out of pan makes any difference or not
  8. That is a good run. My old Denon 2808 died after 3 years and Denon didn't make the spare board anymore so it couldn't get fixed. Luckily the local Denon rep gave me a good deal on a new 4311 which is still going strong. I later found out under that under Australian Consumer law the manufacturers are required to hold spare parts, hence the discount offered on a new replacement. Upgrade time for me soon as well..I was thinking the NAD T 758 v.3 or lower model Anthem..good luck with your search
  9. Andy, Yes you are 100% right the version at DiyAudio is a 20 watt amp and there is a 50 watt version also. I have built the 20 watt version and is a wonderfull sounding amp easy to build, no adjustments, and NO Unobtainium parts. If i remember correctly there is a 35 watt version using a higher rail voltage with different out put devices that was mentioned in the thread. Hugh talks about the AKSA commercial version in post #3155 DiyAudio thread. Steve.
  10. The hybrid headphone amp (LeManja) is completed and sounding good. Still trialling the limiting resistor for the reg but all else checks out. With a universal front end any 12A?7 can be installed with no adjustments to bias etc. The backend is driven by a PT2308 - a dedicated headphone very low distortion driver chip (Class A/B). The chip runs on 7V max so I’ve used a 6V reg. About to have a be a big listen. Current tube is a new Ting Sol gold pin.
  11. I use a Denon Pro CD/MP3 player as transport for CD's connected via coax to a Musical Fidelity DAC. Works a treat but still doesn't sound as good as vinyl..... 😀
  12. I could do it for $55 posted mate , that’s $40 plus $15 postage ( triple vinyl )
  13. Am loving every episode! Definately put this on your radar. There was another BBC - reenactment done a few year back on Youtube. Not as dramatic as this, but quite similar.
  14. Might be interested in Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy if there is some leeway in the price.
  15. You blokes that have Nitty Gritty RCM’s, where did you purchase them? Ive sent an email to the address on their site with no response
  16. Hi All, Yes, A Time & A Word MOV repressing JJ
  17. Absolutely loving this series, totally hooked. Just had episode 3 handed to me this morning, cannot wait to watch it this evening. Shame its only 5 episodes long. Hopefully there is a good post series documentary or something maybe intervieiwng some people there at the time. Some of the details and facts are just scarily mind blowing. On a side note, be sure to watch right through all the credits at the end, the director and some of the cast have been speaking at the end of each episode for a few minutes.
  18. Oh if that's the case I'd absolutely use them. The Sonix is very similar, just in a black timber cabinet with slightly different dimensions. If the Tryptix suited better as surrounds (easily wall mountable and gloss enclosure) then you could certainly pair them with Sonix at the front.
  19. Today
  20. Sugden Ia4. Has the same Audionote tone and musicality but with the benefits of SS.
  21. Well I know how to kill a conversation... I went and got one yesterday. It'll need a run in before I can give any critical response, but it's a fine looking unit.
  22. My family was heavily involved with what was the Australian Ukrainian Chernobyl Children's Foundation in the 90's, and being of Ukrainian descent myself this series is of special interest to me. Just based on the trailer I have seen it would appear HBO has gone to considerable effort in order to get the facts right. Particularly glad they cast Brits - they generally manage to convey a certain authenticity in these sort of historical dramas.
  23. Always take a roll from a paper towel or similar and a pillow if you want to listen to the tweeter cover the woofer with the pillow and place the roll over the tweeter or midrange unit. I always ask what kind of music the person likes if it's heavy metal acid rock or other bullshit I tend to either walk away or really thoroughly test it.
  24. I regret trading in my BMW M6 V10. Was 8 years old but still going well. Clutch was a bit horrible but a stunning car (in my opinion) - many thought it was ugly. The exhaust note was awesome...
