    Bargin. These have a great reputation and I have been tempted to make a pair myself. I like the metal x with the feet, did you make this or is it off the shelf? Wish I was in the area to audition

    Hey Peter_F, do you have a link to the page on the Sony site? I cant find anything on the X9000e power supply issue. I purchased mine after my Samsung 64F8500 plasma power supply went kaput and they don't stock spare parts anymore so they cant repair, I dont want to get caught twice.

    Source in Australia for bitumastic pads?

    I would try car motor trimmer suppliers for the underfelt. Also the car stereo shops for sound deadening material like Dynamat or equivalent (I haven't ordered anything from the stores linked below so I cannot vouch for their service or reliability) http://www.carbuilders.com.au/sound-deadener https://www.ryda.com.au/car-audio/accessories/siund-deadener

    Went to HN today to pay the rest off and the Sony 75 x9000e was $3995 so I got the same price with free delivery

    The best price i could get the Sony 75 x9000e was $4200. I have grabbed one hopefully all goes well.
  6. Hi Cerbera, I have been reading in these threads for a while but never felt I knew enough to contribute positively. I want to treat my HT room. There is another thread here on BAD panels, I recommend you check it out I was going to build some to try out in my room. I have a pack a Martini HD 75mm batts in the garage and was going to get some plywood CNC'd to the hle pattern to face it. After reading it looks like the BAD panels help absorb down to lower frequencies and provide some diffusion at the higher frequencies as well, looked like a good place to start to me..

    Thanks for the info, the Panasonic 75EX780 is sounding like a good option. My budget might be able to stretch to the Sony X9000E 75" if I can get it close to $4000 (seen it $4300 online).

    Some good suggestions here, I am also looking for some advice on a new TV to replace my 3.5 year old Samsung plasma 64F8500 that is slowly dying. I am thinking 75" as well but can spend up to $5000. Samsung are taking my old one away soon, so I don't have much time to decide. Any suggestions, I am in Perth so not as much competition, TIA.
  9. Hi I will take it thanks, should work a treat for the kids tv room. I will make a donation to stereonet. I am NoR can you please pm me and I will give you my mobile number to arrange pick up? Cheers Andy
  10. If you consider shipping to WA let me know..
  11. No problem Eli, local sale is easier. They look good in Jarrah.
  12. I would be keen to go in for some CSR Martini as well. I was thinking of going for the XHD or HD 100 given the price, the better low frequency absorption of the 100mm might suit my smaller room better.
  13. Some great info here, I have always been trying to get the time to add some panels to my small HT Room. I didn't realize Bunnings sell the Martini insulation. Looking at the specs the best price / performance looks to be from the HD 75. Is there any other reason besides rigidity to go for the XHD? I might buy a pack and try them on the walls first before making any frames. I have read previously that the RIM_Fabrics_Trilogy material was okay, has anyone used this before?
  14. Hi Richard, I will take the DAC if still available for the $180 incl postage, I am in Perth WA postcode 6016. Cheers Andrew
