  1. Item: NAD T743 (not working) and NAD T753 (works with issues) Price Range: These have now been collected Item Condition: Used Extra Info: The T743 just stopped working one day, won't power on I think. The T753 is a bit more complicated. It has 2 faults: 1. The VFD screen goes blank after some time. 2. The rear channels don't always work. This could just be a faulty relay that needs replacing, so not an expensive repair if you know what you are doing and do it yourself I don't know if the parts are the same, but I guess it could be possible to use parts from the T743 to repair the T753. Otherwise, the T753 can be used as is, with a little frustration. Pickup from Point Cook, Vic.
  2. Hi, FYI I think the model number should be RX-396, without the "V". Looks to be in very nice condition. Good luck.
  3. Hi All I've been meaning to update my experience into the thread for a while and it seems like today is a good day. I purchased a MRX-510 from HifiExpress Ebay and it worked well apart from the fact it would shutdown when loud spikes in movies happened. If the receiver was unplugged for a while, it wouldn't happen again straight away, it could be hours or days, but it would happen again. Once the issue happened, I could unplug all devices expect one source and unplug all speakers, so there was no sound and it would still shut down when it got to the audio spike in the movie. (The test I used was the start of the movie Iron Man - There is an explosion at about the 2 minute mark that would cause my 510 to shut down if the volume was -24 or louder with my speakers.) I reported it to HifiExpress/Audio Active and I had to take it to Filatronics for repair. It came back without them being able to reproduce it (at the time I hadn't worked out that unplugging it corrected it for a while). So I had some back and forth with Filatronics to try a few things, resets, disconnecting everything etc but it was still happening. Both Filatronics and Audio Active were really good about it and decided they would replace it rather than making me go through the hassle of potentially more trips to the repairer. They didn't have another 510, so it was replaced with a 710 at no extra cost to me. The 710 was in good condition, but the marks around the HDMI out showed it had been used a fair bit. No big deal. The good news is that the 710 didn't suffer the same shutdown issue that the 510 did. So to yamapro, this may be the unit I had that is now repaired unless they got another one in from somewhere (which they probably do from time to time). To 2LOUD2OLD, with the 710 I have had the unit lock up once. I do use a harmony but I had manually turned on the zone 2 only and was playing some music (analogue source) for a while but it stopped at the end of the album. A while later I went inside and pressed the zone 2 power toggle, but it didn't go off. No other buttons on the front or remote did anything. Powered off at the wall and have not had the problem again so far. Ben
  4. You can setup two inputs with the same source and have ARC on for one and off for the other if you want. Ben
  5. Hi guys Just bought an ex-demo mrx-510 during a recent ebay sale. Excellent condition, all setup and working well. I had taken this model home for a demo a while ago, but personal circumstances put the purchase on hold: My how time flies. That was 3 years ago. Anyway, I'm enjoying the upgrade after using a Yamaha rx-v1700 for the last year or so and NAD T753 before that. Ben
  6. Depending on what's wrong, it may be a cheap fix. I have an rx-v1700 that sometimes wouldn't come on and eventually stopped coming on at all. The fix was to replace a single capacitor with a $1 replacement from jaycar. More details can be found here: https://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-replies.cfm?t=1386168 I'm fairly new to soldering, but was able to do it and it's still going strong now. Ben
  7. I know you've asked for large collections, but do you need any of the disks I am selling with my HD-E1? Ben
  8. Item: Toshiba HD-E1 HD-DVD player and 4 movies Location: Point Cook, Vic Price: $50 Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: Not being used, taking up room in cabinet Payment Method: Pickup - Cash (pickup only) Extra Info: The player is in very good condition and has been lighly used after purchase during the HD-DVD firesale, the remote has not really been used as a universal remote was used. The 4 HD-DVDs included that should be OK are: Terminator 2 Hot Fuzz The Bourne Ultimatum Shrek the Third There are also another 9 disks, but they Warner disks so are most likely suffering disk rot, so don't take these into account when deciding to purchase. Harry Potter 1 - 5 (may have disk rot) Matrix Trilogy (may have disk rot) Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (may have disk rot) Feel free to ask any questions. Ben

  10. Hi Stumpy Would you considering posting if splitting up? Thanks Ben
  11. Just be aware that a lot of Warner HD-DVDs have gone bad over time. Some don't play at all, some get half way through before they stop. ben
  12. Cables and AM/FM Tuner picked up today. I'd say the TV is destined for the tip.
