  1. Have you thought of DIY tube traps? I intend to make some one day when I have some free time (which will probably be a while away...kids...) https://www.teresaudio.com/haven/traps/traps.html https://www.gearslutz.com/board/bass-traps-acoustic-panels-foam-etc/668341-diy-studio-tube-traps-questions.html
  2. That is a good run. My old Denon 2808 died after 3 years and Denon didn't make the spare board anymore so it couldn't get fixed. Luckily the local Denon rep gave me a good deal on a new 4311 which is still going strong. I later found out under that under Australian Consumer law the manufacturers are required to hold spare parts, hence the discount offered on a new replacement. Upgrade time for me soon as well..I was thinking the NAD T 758 v.3 or lower model Anthem..good luck with your search
  3. Thanks Andy I am down the road in Mt Hawthorn so not far away at all. I was intending to run mine with an Elektra Theatron 7.
  4. Hi All, does anyone know where you can these in Perth? I am keen to get one but would like to check out the menu etc before I commit.
  5. I was looking at getting one these soon, not sure what to do now...
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. The best price i could get the Sony 75 x9000e was $4200. I have grabbed one hopefully all goes well.
  11. 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.. BAD Panel Thread
  12. 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).
  13. 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.
  14. 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
