  1. Maybe wait until the HDMI 2.1 AVRs are released and snatch a bargain when people sell their current AVRs to upgrade?
  2. I loved the bmx event. I was hopeless at surfing.
  3. I was just about to see if they were coming out with any new AVRs or pre/pros and then I read this news First Panasonic and now CA!
  4. I just said to my wife I need a new one of these (pointing to my Denon AVR) and she said 'why?' lol
  5. Only thing holding me back from Yamaha is the subwoofer integration. I've been holding off buying an AVR in general due to waiting for HDMI 2.1 but probably have no need for it
  6. I've been a fan of Yamaha since I began my HT journey. My first AVR was the Yamaha 795a. Fairly low in their model range but hey I just started working full time! I have not had a Yamaha since this model, I would go back to the brand if they improved their sub EQ. I think they build some nice AVR's ,pre-pro with great build quality and reliability. Not sure I'm a fan of their new look though. I remember going into a store a couple of years ago ( I think it was Audio Trends) and the salesman said if you want an exciting sound then go with Yamaha, if it's room correction you're looking for then go with Anthem.
  7. Im more interested in whether they have improved YPAO, especially in the lower frequencies.

  9. Here's mine, picked it up yesterday.
  10. I picked up the bike today and can some one please tell me if the black plastic bit on the cable is meant to clip into something? It looks like it is supposed to but I can't figure it out.
  11. Went to the bike store again today and made a purchase. I bought a Giant FastRoad Advanced 1. Will pick it up next week. Can't wait to go on a proper ride with it. https://www.giant-bicycles.com/au/fastroad-advanced-1
  12. I'd rather the 75" Sony LCD instead of the 65" OLED if spending more.
  13. Went to a bike shop today and was told that a 28mm tyre would probably be problematic due to clearance. So I think it's not worth changing from 23 to 25 or even 28 even if they could just fit. The guy at the store recommend I look at the toughroad, revolt or his favourite model, the Fast Road (flatbar). I had a look and actually really like the look of the FastRoad Advanced. Comes with a 32 tyre that should handle The gravel sections of the Main Yarra Trail, it has clearance for a bit wider tyre if needed. Might go again and have a test ride in the next few days.
  14. Hi guys, I searched on line and yes it seems that 28 is the widest that will fit. I may still go to a bike store to check but may be tempted to spend too much on a new bike!
  15. Interestingly, the tyres on my bike are 23, which indicates they are too narrow for the rim according to the table! I must have another look at them but as mentioned I'll measure the fork clearance first as this may put a stop to my gravel tyre choice.
