    At the end of the day, the restrictions are above and beyond StereoNET and our authority. The rules are clear, you should not be leaving your home. If someone wants to stupidly run that risk then that's between them and the authorities. I know I wouldn't allow pickup were I selling something at the moment, so I trust other sellers to also do the right thing.

    I appreciate your intentions are good. With all respect @ikhuong - and while I wholeheartedly agree with everything you say, it's not as easy as just "generating an auto message". We don't have the luxury of full-time web developers and you don't just click a button for that to happen. It's custom coding which takes time, and then testing across all devices and browsers. We trust the community to do the right thing, and if they don't, then that is between them and the law and authorities. I think the message is wide and clear for all about what you are, and are not allowed to do, and via the official channels. While I pledge my personal support behind the current VIC restrictions, StereoNET is not authorised nor has a responsibility to broadcast the message or enforce the rules and restrictions. COVID-19 is already having a devastating effect on the world - and many turn to StereoNET to escape that and for a sense of normality. Let's allow this place to continue without constant COVID-19 reminders and putting what is going on in the world in front of everyone's eyes here as well.

    Thought I'd share my story.. Was wanting a new rack to replace my currente entertainment which was a bit too large now that TV is wall mounted. This is my first attempt at anything remotely like this as I am well known for not being very trade minded and am more comfortable pushing a pen! Got some inspiration from google and then worked out what I wanted to acheive and how I wanted it too look and function. After a bit of think tank on paper I grabbed some - * 33mm Solid Vic Ash and had it cut to size (1200x500) * Galvanised Piping and Flanges (32mm piping and accessories to match/fit) * Rubber Gaskits, Cam Locks and some PVC Connectors (sized to suit piping and gaskets) Took me 4 days from start to finish with drying times of the stain/varnish and sanding between coats and painting of flanges, piping and clamps. I did the hole sawing for the legs on the bottom and middle shelf sized quite snug which lined up nicely but if I had my time again I might go a little larger to allow easier adjustment... The bottom flanges have capacity which if i decide I can use speaker spikes with. The rubber gaskets were used between the top flanges and topshelf and the bottom flanges and floor. The PVC connectors are supporting the middle shelf which makes it adjustable. Aside from the rack I was also able to make some speaker platforms too, which are the same timber and have the whites isolation blocks under them. I think its come up nicely. To me it doesnt quite look like the time and effort I put it, that said, I acheived what I set out to do, it has a bit of an idustrial look which I was wanting, its functional, weighs an absolute tonne but blends in nicely and has received WAF!! LOL! One thing I'll add, I am not sure the DIY thing is as cost effective as I first thought it would be, I could have purchased something well branded very easily with the outlay on this, but there is a satisfaction in it now that its all set up and being used that I made it - and I am confident there is NO WAY anything I bought would be as solid!! Cheers Bit of a snapshot of some of the prgoress pics I took..

    1 unit? No offence, but that's nearly double the price of a new one brought directly from minidsp with shipping. Alright moderators, I'm ready for warning now

    Hi Victorian folks, I am interested to know your plan to improve your audio system in the next 6 weeks? What are sort of investment/changing that you did not think to do but this is a time for second thought/giving it a chance? Myself, I have never thought to invest a decent Vinyl system but I did anyway, NSW has not been anywhere close to a lockdown but being wfh, I am spending so much more time with my audio system and want to discover different directions in audio (with some sacrifice in mortgage payment and wife raised an eyebrow) , I pulled a trigger for a vinyl deck and phono.

    A "new" arm on my Kuzma Stabi Ref 2- an Alphason HR 100 MCS (thanks @missmurphy). The Alphason has replaced a Kuzma 4 Point. I bought it as a temporary solution while I think about the next arm for the Stabi Ref, since it is a drop-in replacement. I know the Alphason was highly regarded in its day but I wasn't prepared for just how good it sounds. It actually sounds amazing, and a great combination with the Kuzma turntable - the essential neutrality of the turntable really works well with the fast, lean, engaging character of the Alphason. I actually prefer it to the 4 Point. The 4 Point was clearly better on all the "hi fi" criteria - it could flesh out the recording venue right to the back walls - and the Alphason is not quite as resolving and a little cooler sounding, but so engaging and musical! I was going to sent it to Audio Origami for a health check and a re-wire - the VDH cabling gets some decidedly mixed reviews - but it sounds so fabulous in stock form I think I will leave it alone. My search for a replacement for the 4 Point may well have ended with this 30+ year old arm.

Please stay safe and be good to each other and from all the team here at Tivoli Hi-Fi we look forward to welcoming you all back into the store when it is possible. Cheers! James

    Further information: Anyone who knows ATC will understand just how good this model is. This is the exact pair of speakers that turned me onto the brand. Even at the original RRP of nearly $10K it's hard to imagine a more complete speaker, except for the SCM40.v2. At this used price nothing else I've heard will match them for a combination of sheer accuracy, transparency and extension. Just to get the same magical dome midrange in any other brand today will cost you over $16K RRP. This matched pair comes in a beautiful cherry finish and is in excellent condition apart from a crack in one of the wooden outriggers which has been glued for stability. They are complete with grilles but no original packaging. They are able to be played to demonstrate superb performance and value for a local buyer. Interstate buyers will have to take my word for it and pay for freight. Donation to SNA on sale.

    Straight from the DHHS website. "Stay within 5km from home for shopping and exercise. Use the map on the Department of Premier and Cabinet website to see how far you are allowed to travel from your home under the stage 4 restrictions." Use this guideline and common sense to work out if leaving home for purchase or pick up of hifi is reasonable given the dire circumstances we find ourselves in. Even using delivery services is putting people at risk. There's COVID19 outbreaks in the delivery warehouse system. Do you really want some item delivered to your house that's potentially been handled by someone with COVID19? Six weeks folks, surely hifi can wait six weeks?

    OR, Sensible and responsible adults can obey the law and understand that visitation to collect or audition gear is unlawful and remain at home. IMO, it is not up to Stereonet or any other website to interpret and enforce the law. That is the job of the police and the justice system. With resect, why should moderators and the admin of the site be responsible for informing people about that with which they should inform themselves.

    Hi Everyone, this turntable I made myself is up for sale. The plinth is 6 sheets of 16mm MDF, hand finished and spray painted in gloss black. The Denon motor unit runs smoothly and silently and holds speed perfectly. The Acos Lustre tonearm is in mint condition and installed exactly to specification. Offered with Ortofon MC10 Mk II cartridge - with brand new cantilever and stylus tip from Audio Dynamics/Garrott Brothers. Receipt available for this work completed just a few weeks ago. As hard as this might be to believe, sound wise it gives my Michell Orbe a run for it's money. I'm only selling because I have also built a slightly improved version which I am keeping myself. Very unique looks (everyone that has seen it loves it). Able to audition by appointment if you are serious. There is some flexibility re the cartridge included (I have a few, or it can be sold without a cartridge if you prefer) and also I have a different Acos tonearm that could be included instead. Price will be adapted according to final spec of course. I'm confident that if anyone makes the time to come and see and hear it they will end up taking it away with them! Even if you're not a buyer, let me know what you think of it anyway! I have had such fun making it.

    My current build and to be my final hopefully. Would be nice if I could find my headshells and cartridges from shipping all my stuff from nz in January!! Got the red pnp for the mean time. Denon DP80 motor. Furatech cable to be upgraded but until I have a house and finish the plinth, in no rush. I am a fan of heavy tts so this is baltic birch plywood that I made using a mates/customer of mines cnc machine from Germany and was larger than a courier van but bloody fun to play with Built a custom step down transformer, awaiting a nice terroidal upgrade when i get the confidence and connections to test it in sydney I also need to build a deeper/bigger rack for it lol!!!

    Hi everyone. Sorry for the delay but we ended up doing some last minute revisions on the board & the new case CNC work needed some fine tuning to make sure everything was spot before actually ordering production cases. The DAC board/design is totally finished & thoroughly tested. The custom case CAD files have now been accepted by the case manufacturer. I have pulled the trigger on the order but unfortunately the Japanese case manufacture has just started it's summer break holiday, Aug 8 - Aug 16th. Then there is eleven business days for production plus 3 - 4 days shipping time. That puts the ETA at around the 4 - 8th of September. Once again sorry for the big delay but IMHO it is definitely worth the wait. Initial testing put the sound quality a little ahead of a Fein II & the new case is a serious step above my current cases. I'll save all the juicy details for the official release but this is a rough outline. Base model design with no display but engineered for maximum sound quality. Three digital inputs - USB, Coax & Optical. AK4493EQ DAC chip with a total of eleven independent supplies. On board pre regulated PSU with a massive 500 mH choke. New improved S/PDIF input stage based on the AK4118 rather than the previous Wolfston chip. Four layer board with separate power & ground planes which also eliminates any pcb links. Cost will be around $1200 Stay tuned!

    Hi everyone sorry for the delay. Saturday night and I was watching a movie. 🎥 OK yes it does have a low noise power supply built in that is similar to a Kraftwerk. The big choke is a added bonus. In light of that there is no need to add a external DC power supply. The standard supplied EI core external transformer will do the job nicely.

    Elvis - International Hotel Las Vegas - August 1969. 33rpm 2LP on Legacy label. Says he was missing the contact with a live audience when he did this show and you can feel the obvious rapport he has with the audience on this album. Great collection of songs and delivered by Elvis in a way that you can tell he was really enjoying himself.

    Virus has been good for inward looking, get your shi.t together thinking. So with the new PC rig built(won't bore you, it's in the PC section) and it's completely clean internals it was time to get my room back into it's original intention which was hiding most of my gear behind doors and screens and listening in comfort and quiet from the rest of the house. Just the TT and Earle's paperweight showing and the other three connected amps are behind the doors as are the phono stage and the Mober digital and it's psu as well as the Aria Picollo Plus(streamer) and some other peripherals. The one let down to this clean look is a pair of Aslan speaker cables(laying on the floor in the pic) which aren't connected to the speakers but are to their Alpha series Sansui and there's some speaker cables behind the doors that are connected to an AU-7900 as well as the ' gaming ' amp which is hardwired to the gaming PC. All of this stuff was spread out before and it was a mess so it's nice to have it all clean and tidy again. *The messy cables on the far right are the phone chargers and tablet chargers connected (yeah I know it's a waste) to a Consonance power conditioner. But it was laying in the Cab Sav Shiraz buying draw along with other items so why not use it. Darth Vader's noggin is a new addition and the Handbrake will never ever...ever, find my new cunning kick...it's in Darth's head. I reckon the stash in there is as safe as houses, a small stash admittedly in these trying times but Scomo's first jobkeeper is keeping it alive and kicking. You might not be able to see them but some of the gear Imentioned are in behind the doors here. I took a pic sitting next to the TT looking back, the bomb crater that was my desk is now clean again and isn't it nice to have a clean desk.It's usually full of of dead IPA soldiers who ultimately succumbed to the rigours of battle... The acoustic door of SILENCE! is shut so nothing goes out or in sound wise within reason. Last pic is my fav stack all cleaned up and plugged in for their photo op. It's been a few years since they were all gathered together, the missing model is out of camera shot. So the down time has been good. We're not on restrictions like you guys down there in Bleak City and I feel your pain, my daughter is stuck in a tiny flat in East St Kilda and I worry for her peace of mind. So wear your masks and eat heaps, become twice the men you were before the Rona(like I am...) and keep buying all those albums you've been looking at as you trawl through the online stores. I'm not telling anyone about the limited edition splattered colour triple gatefold vinyl release(for the very very first time..Woo Hoo!) and attached booklet and fantastic iconic artwork from one of the all time greatest anime's ever made and it's jazz fusion cool arsed soundtrack only available from......*^^%!!~~ Keep safe!😎🤙

    What are the acceptable reasons for leaving home? There are four approved reasons for leaving the house: Shopping for food or other essential items To provide care giving, for compassionate reasons or to seek medical treatment For exercise (outdoor exercise only, with only one other person or members of your household) Work or study, if you cannot work or study from home Collecting hi fi does not appear to fit any of the above criteria.

    Not spinning, but I discovered this Miles Davis set under the stairs today ... I bought it in the USA around 2011 and when I moved back to Oz I put it away and forgot about it. It contains all 8 of the "metal spine" box sets in a faux trumpet case. I haven't opened any of the boxes yet ... dunno if I would really listen to them more than once to be honest. Does anyone play these sets regularly? (pic stolen from the interwebz) --Geoff
