  1. Just had to thank Jventer for this excellent summary. Being totally clueless and hopeless when it comes to digital sources other than CD, I found it hugely informative.
  2. Anyone get to view this? Despite the obvious heart-string tugging was very enjoyable. I guess the point of the programme is the story lines of the individuals / families involved, but I do wish they had focussed a little more on the recording and production process. Then again, I would say that, wouldn't I.
  3. Not sure if this is the correct category or thread but this looks as though this programme might just be worth watching, and not just 'cos my daughter is in it (the recording engineer.) https://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwiumo7NidLhAhXXQ30KHcC6BAsQFjAAegQIAxAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Ftv.press.abc.net.au%2Fabc-and-fremantlemedia-australia-announce-new-series-the-recording-studio&usg=AOvVaw2A5B6MnmrFHV3gfdjy4VYq
  4. Been researching new PVR / set top boxes to replace my Beyonwiz DP-P2 and came across this thread to read through. The general opinion seems to be favourable on here but reading other review sites Fetch Mighty gets quite a lot of negative to horrible reviews. To the guys who've had the unit a while, is it worth the fuss and the money? @Pops110 @loki65 @digitalhome @betty boop

  6. Maybe get a second opinion from @Alanpartridge suggestion, or is the original shop holding it now and will charge you for taking it back?
  7. Super clever idea and application @Winno I bet they end up sounding pretty good. Be sure to post more pics and your thoughts on the finished result.
  8. It's been a really good product for us (if a little glitchy occasionally) and lasted exactly nine years but recently stopped recording altogether for a while, wiped the entire hard disc, and is generally getting unreliable. Now weighing up the options of purchasing a new PVR, some other source / recorder or repairing the Beyonwiz. What are the modern options. We do have a smart TV to access Netflix and catch-up channels etc but don't think we'll bother with Foxtel. My misses is the main watcher and does want to be able to record Free to Air TV channels.
  9. So how did things turn out @Grizzly did all your patience pay-off in the end? or are you all bitter and twisted that such a drawn out drama has left you underwhelmed?
  10. I do love my black components, but my Bel Canto CD2 came before most else so now sticks out like a Staffy Terrier's you-know-whats. I did enquire as to the option of a black facia which is possible to obtain, but balked at the cost. Having said that I did send back my original AMR DP777 which was silver, I just couldn't bear that carbuncle. That mistake cost me a bomb too.
  11. All UK power plugs have an in-built fuse which can be sized to suit whatever appliance the plug-top is used on or the size of flex used. This arrangement is not deemed necessary in Aus and would not be required for your amp/sub (or whatever) as it would surely have the correct fusing arrangement built-in to the equipment.
  12. No, there's no radio, 'tis just an amp. Albeit a real beaut. GLWTS
  13. If you know Bugge at all you'll know he is very much a cross genre artist. From straight piano jazz to classical and all the way back to deep electronic he excels at all. Found this one for a tenner at 78 records in the city (Perth) and mostly very good. He does make what I consider a mistake in the 20 min noise fest that is the track 'Live in Bla' (Where the hell is Bla?) but thankfully it's not the LP so a easy 'skip' press cover that obnoxtion. You never know I may re-visit and get to like but doubt it. The rest is rather "of it's time" in that Buggs New Concetion of Jazz was still experimenting with where he wanted electronics to take him but it's easy to see this as a pre-cursor to his albums with Henrik Shwarz, Laurent Garnier etc. Very enjoyable.
  14. Not sure if the link will work but Chaos Theory - The Soundtrack To Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory is a hell of an album on Ninja Tune. https://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwjVwaqHnPveAhWIu48KHUDKDJkQwqsBMAB6BAgBEAQ&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3D4wEZv3cwoMs&usg=AOvVaw0sMQY2kh5LkCmkEfJ-EcrZ
  15. i know most people here are more audiophile than dj's but let me know what you guys think? I think you've done a fantastic job and my son would love to own these if only he had any money (no-way will this be his Chrissy present) Well done and GLWTS.
