  7. This little unit is getting some attention due to the low MSRP price ($799USD). Anyone got one yet? It might just be what I'm looking for! http://en.cayin.cn/products_info?itemid=109
  8. Amazing price for an amazing player, this CD player replaced the audio refinement CD players that YBA were selling. I think the RRP was $1500 back in it's hayday. Definitely has the YBA signature sound! GLWS....
  9. I've got a soft for Loewe TVs, we bought our first set from ENCEL stereo, it was a huge 68cm with support for NTSC! They used to have ads on them in the green guide selling Loewe and also Blaupunkt Tvs... If considering OLED, the panasonic ones are probably the best even though they are using LG OLED panels. Do remember when Pioneer Kuro were shut down, all the engineers were brought over to Panasonic's display division and thus they have arguable the best screen coating technology today.
  10. Just saw this new 4K UHD projector announced and available for sale, January 2018. Does anyone know if BENQ will be demoing this projector at the Melbourne Hifi show? Don't see any info about it on the BENQ website as yet.

  13. Has anyone tried this new DDC unit from Matrix? It's got some praise from head-fi forums as an alternative to the singxer SU-1 unit which is quite popular. http://www.matrix-digi.com/en/specifications/160/index.html
  14. Looking to trial/buy some Isotek power cables or any brands in my price range ($100-200) My HT room has a dedicated power circuit. 1. Which electronics benefit best with an upgraded power, is there a particular order upgrade? 2. Most if not all of my electronics run off power cables connected to power boards, if I were to upgrade the power cables, then also the power boards would need upgrading as well?
  15. Still getting that error... Best to type forum posts in notepad and copy and paste just in case as I lost my post!
