  1. I like this concept but I think a 2K system without a turntable would provide better bang for buck, and is much easier to demo and set up at the show. This also allocates more funds for speakers and amplifier which will have the most impact to building a good sounding system.

    Without Gaff, Kennedy and Nic Nat it'll be very difficult from here on for WC but I hope they prove me wrong. Plus I wonder what impact the Gaff incident will have on team morale. As a WC supporter it's certainly left me feeling pretty flat and disappointed, to the point where the 58 point derby win bought me no joy at all.
  3. Item: Polk CSi5 Centre Speaker Location: Perth WA Price: $265 Item Condition: Near mint Reason for selling: Upgraded Payment Method: Local pickup - Cash For sale is my Polk CSi5 Centre speaker in near mint condition, which has served me well and only selling due to upgrade. It's a large sized speaker with very good sound dispersion. This is an excellent sounding home theatre centre speaker and this model very rarely comes up for sale. Cheers Pete.
  4. I'll take it if you'll post to perth? PM sent. Cheers Pete
  5. Its a long walk from the couch to the turntable to flip the LP, or to change a CD! But if it sounds amazing then I could live the look of the room.

    What happened when the RP3 was positioned directly on the pucks?

    Have you tried putting the turntable directly on the ISO pucks without the marble slab?

    Integrated amp suggestions (new)

    Based on what you have now I'd grab this in a snap: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Vintage-Accuphase-E-205-Integrated-Amplifier/132525766018?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649 I used to own one and its one of the best amplifiers I've owned, and I've had a few. Built like a tank and has an excellent phonostage too. Its been on ebay for a while so you may be able to get it close to $1000. If you don't like it they certainly hold their value.
  9. It was surprising Dave as the build quality appears to be superb. I can't understand why they didn't wrap the unit in plastic before putting it in the box. When I opened it up I thought I'd bought a demo unit!
  10. Hey mine too!! I received my brand new Elektra with chipped edges on the fascia, covered in dust and because the power cord was so badly packed it rubbed the serial number off the back. I was very disappointed and found the whole packing to be very unprofessional. I complained to my local supplier and they've arranged for a new one to be made and just waiting for it to be be delivered. As far as sound goes though it seems pretty impressive so far, hoping to dial the new system setup in later in week.
  11. Haha who cares. I think they look great and would make an excellent visual feature, as they do in converted warehouse apartments. Personally at this stage I'd leave the ceiling as is, and a man cave should be MANLY!!

    Getting out of hifi

    You don't need a good system to enjoy music, and in fact quite often 'systems' take centre stage and take the focus away from the music. I still reckon sell the system as you can enjoy pretty good sounding music very cheaply these days via streaming and the like. Ultimately, hifi is just consumer goods that like us has a limited life span. If you're committed to the music you will find a more convenient and most likely cheaper way of enjoying it and sharing it with the family. You don't need a stellar hifi to enjoy music and neither do the kids to grow up enjoying it.

    Getting out of hifi

    Its not crazy mate, just sell it and enjoy life and be free of it until you're ready to re-engage in the hobby. I'm out of it myself at the moment and will be putting most of my gear into storage, and have re-purposed some of it for home theatre duties, which I prefer these days. I don't see myself returning to hifi anytime soon and if my kids show some interest they can have the lot. Quality time with your family is more important than hifi.
  14. I know this isn't OLED or QLED, but this is a lot of TV for the money: https://www.jbhifi.com.au/lg/lg-sk8000-75-4k-super-uhd-ai-smart-led-tv/640466/?utm_campaign=jb-au-20180630-Saturday-tax-time-madness+(PK9vLz)&utm_medium=email&_ke=eyJrbF9lbWFpbCI6ICJyZWdhM0BsaXZlLmNvbS5hdSIsICJrbF9jb21wYW55X2lkIjogIkxRem50UiJ9&utm_source=Newsletter+Active+(Opened+60+Days)
  15. I'm still pretty gobsmacked at the Panasonic 65" OLED I saw at MCB's place. Its still the most impressive TV I've seen and I'm looking at TVs quite frequently at the moment. Although, the 2018 Samsung 65" QLED TV currently at $3820 is pretty impressive: https://www.thegoodguys.com.au/samsung-65-inches165cm-qled-uhd-smart-tv-qa65q7fnawxxy
