  1. I tired to set the Foxtel output to "Pass through" & let my TV (Panasonic ST50) do the up/descaling, the PQ looks worse vs the 720p setting. Will be interesting to know if I can get better results if I did this with the Oppo 103.
  2. 1) Corrs - Unplugged 2) Katie Melua - On the Road Again 3) Neil Young - Heart of Gold 4) Alison Krauss & Union Station Live 5) Mariza - Concerto em Lisboa just to name some ............
  3. I have tried to search for the answer but to no avail . I thinking of getting the Oppo (undecided whether it will be Darbee or stock) but was wondering if you have the following experiences 1) Feed the Foxtel signal into the Oppo's HDMI input . I 'm wondering if the picture quality improves ie: will it upscale the native Foxtel 720p to 1080p? 2) Will it upscale 720p mkv/mp4 files to 1080p if it's fed through Oppo's USB ports? If so, did it improve the image quality? I still have one of Oppo's earlier DVD players - DV981hd & am still amaze at the upscaling image quality from native 720p to 1080p! Appreciate the help before I lay down $s for this player. Cheers, Ian

  9. They were all sold earlier & will update my status shortly.... FYI, I have these still on sale if you are interested. They are just as good as the HAL-Os sonically however they may be slightly trickier to install. http://www.stereo.ne...22s-6dj8s-more/ I will sell these for the asking price of $35 inclusive of postage within Australia. Cheers, Ian

  11. Item: Tube (x 6) & Interconnect Dampers (x 10) for 6922/6DJ8/ECC88 Signal tubes Location: Sydney NSW Price: A$80 for all 16 units (plus small parcel postage within Australia) Item Condition: Used - 7/10 Reason for selling: To fund a redecoration home project Payment Method: EFT or Pickup at Sydney metro location - COD HAL-O 9 (PTFE ) : Fits 9-pin miniature tubes - 6 units Herbie's original, highly-acclaimed tube damper with lightly sandblasted PTFE C-ring and platinum-cured silicone isolation pads gives a sonically neutral, highly musical result. Reveals low-level cues that give music its real-life atmosphere. Helps to clear up dull or "dark-sounding" systems. For preamp, input/driver, and other cool-running small-signal tubes; also suitable for guitar amplifier preamp tubes. For continuous use up to 420° F (216° C) User reviews: "...The effect on my system was to eliminate frequency exaggerations caused by my tubes picking up resonance frequencies" "...The HAL-O's are amazing! I slipped a pair over the Siemens 6922's in my AI Modulus 3A preamp, and wow, they ratcheted up the sound from my speakers a few notches" "The increased 'space' is amazing, but it's not just empty space. Instruments and voices are much more precisely located and delineated. Detail retrieval is enhanced. I've got more bass! Slam! All the 'grunge' is gone. I'm hearing important detail which never existed before. I'm not using junk tubes. Everything is NOS black plates (5751's, 12AU7's, 12AT7's) from the fifties: Amperex Holland, Mullard, GE, RCA. Obviously, they're more microphonic than people think." http://herbiesaudiolab.net/halorvws.htm HAL-O JR. Damping (PTFE) Instrument - 5 pairs/10 units Fits most RCA plugs, 1/4" headphone plugs, coaxial S/PDIF, I2S, DIN, BNC, USB, and fiber optic interconnect plugs, electronic parts, tonearms, and cables approximately 1/2" (11-15mm) in diameter. Available with white PTFE or titanium ring (titanium ring is smaller, lighter, with compact isolation pads; perfect for limited-space applications. PTFE is flexible, allowing lateral installation on tonearms). Weight – PTFE: 5.65 grams Reviews: "....Overall the HAL-O Jr. Interconnect Damping Instruments presented a more realistic, involving and ultimately more enjoyable musical experience" http://www.audiotweaks.com/reviews/haloidi/page01.htm
