  1. Cheers for the heads up @Anatoly Beaver-Hausen ... Looks like I'll be adding to my BOC collection!!
  2. Those two YouTube reviewers are really good. I managed to catch FOMO's HDMI Broken story the day he uploaded it as I was in the market for a new AV receiver at the time.
  3. Shall I bring bring my copy with me next time visiting your place?
  4. That rings alarm bells if the previous owner also replaced a blown resistor. All the more reason to get it checked out as there could be an underlying issue causing resistors to fry. No ... it shouldn't be common for anything to fry.
  5. Exactly right as @Grizzly and others have said. Something has fried (probably a biasing resistor) and the amp needs to be checked otherwise more damage could be done.
  6. This one looks a bit more complicated @Marc
  7. Shipping cost me $272 USD ... back then the USD was worth less than the AUD. These days shipping would be substantially more.
  8. Wasn't me this time @blybo ... alas I don't have a HT setup.
  9. They look awesome ... great work. What veneer did you use?
  10. Looking good @camross I didn't like the feet of the MkII prototype either so went for a base with standoffs. The base has spikes that go through the carpet onto the concrete slab below.
  11. I bought my Deltalite's from US Speaker. They do not ship to Australia so I had to use an on-forwarder ... pretty painless experience.
  12. Hey @BioBrian ... Yes mate they are still going well. If I really like something I tend to hang onto it ... and these for me are a keeper. Both the timbers have darkened over time ... the Jarrah doesn't quite have the redness that it originally had and the Tassie Oak has shifted to a more yellowish hue. The Tassie Oak veneer has changed in the same way as the solid timber on the front baffle so they blend nicely and look coherent. A slightly better pic of the color change below. And considering they sit in the lounge room where it gets full sun in the aftern
  13. Other passions have taken precedence this is true ... 2020 is the year that it needs to get done.
  14. @evil c The Technics plinth is still a work in progress ... albeit not much progress I must admit ... Meanwhile the Jarrah blocks are "seasoning" nicely ...
  15. Cheers Keith, Indeed ... not much has changed over the years ... lol Haha ... yes the china cabinet does rattle at times ... but @ 107 db no rattles were to be heard
  16. I was having an afternoon home alone yesterday playing a few favourite records .... Hard to believe it has been 7 years since I built these speakers .... They are still going strong and I am still loving them. I did crank the volume a bit when playing the Alan Parsons Project tracks Sirius & Eye In The Sky
  17. Hi All, Not too long ago I decided it was time resurect my home audio system that I had done nothing with for the last decade or so. One part of the resurection process was the purchase and building of a new valve amp kit. Once the valve amp was built and some listening was done it became obvious that my 30 yo speakers also needed some attention. The speakers are 3 way bass reflex with a satelite midrange & tweeter arrangement which in their day sounded really good ... although there were always a couple of issues with bass output rolling off in the lower registers and fatigue setting
