  1. Sweet, thanks for the detailed reply. Much appreciated.
  2. Approx 12mths ago i moved all my AV gear into a 19" commercial rack, a 22ru from memory. Now i was wondering if all the Av gear is grounded via the earth on the power cords? The rack is packed full of equipment and power boards. Do i need to look at grounding gear that doesn't have a earth of the plug lead? I do find every now and then i'l feel a tingle through the rack when working on the rear of something and touching the rack at the same time. These are probably newbie questions but i have no idea regarding earthing equipment. matt.
  3. I have a 7.1 Klipsch reference setup comprising of the original rf5 mains, rc7 centre and rs7 surrounds. I feed the mains 200watts per channel and the rest of the system 150 watts per channel via Rotel 10 series power amps. Although these speakers a quite efficient they love some power. The room is 7x4.5m. Two channel audio is excellent but movies with this setup is where they shine. Ive had these setup since 2007 and the speakers are still very capable.

  6. I have two three way box speakers for sale. They have a 12" bass driver, a 5.5" mid-bass and 3.5" tweeter. From what i remember all drivers are VIFA and are roughly 80-100 watts at 8ohms. Built from 18mm vinyl wrapped MDF they are solid construction and come with speaker grills. They would be good speakers for a bedroom, a garage setup or somewhere your not concerned about critical listening. The cabinets are all in excellent condition with no damage. Made by Auditone in Brisbane. They sound pretty good with a balanced sound sig but lack bass in the very low frequencies. Pickup only from 4037 QLD. $200.00
  7. Correct it was made by a cabinet maker who main business was kitchens and bathrooms, sadly he's passed away not long after he made this for me. If there's anything else you need to know just say so.
  8. Well i'm not entirely certain what its worth. I'm guessing around $1500- 2k, although i might be a mile off. To buy something that will house 10 pieces of equipment, over 500 movies and 420 cds and still have storage behind that is impossible to find, unless its custom. The unit is coming up to 8yrs old and doesn't have any external or cosmetic damage. Although i have had to make some modifications over the years. When it was first designed i made an oversight in making just three or four two inch holes in the back to feed cables through. As i start installing more and more equipment those holes have become near useless. So the cabinet maker said to remove a panel from the rear for easier access. So directly behind the bluray player, the receiver and the two power amps a section of the MDF has been removed. That was the best thing i did and made cabling much easier. Removing this section has made no difference to structural rigidity of the cabinet. Here's a pic above the receiver.
  9. I have monitor 2 mounted using a vesa removable arm to cue movies or use the HTPC. I never got around to painting the edge of the cabinet base black. DVD stops can be removed easily with two small screws. There's double the space behind the stop for storage. ; This is an old iphone pic of the HTPC extendable shelf. It can easily be removed if need be.
  10. I'm looking at a downgrade in theatre rack size and I'm asking for EOI on my rack. This was custom built to my design and will suit almost any home theatre that can accomodate its size and colour. It houses 9 separate pieces of equipment plus all the additional storage for DVDs, blurays and CDs. It also has the ability to house a HTPC, either in a rack enclosure or a normal desktop enclosure like I'm running. It's on a dedicated shelf which is on a soft close drawer slide so it can be slid out for maintenance without removing the PC. The six lower drawers are all on extendable roller slides meaning they fully extend the full depth of the drawers which is roughly 730mm. This allows you to easily grab a cd or bluray at the very back of the drawer with ease. They also remove completely from the base with a flick of a switch. It has two 50watt halogen down lights fitted to the top overhang to light the rack itself and the shelf above the cd storage. The lighting is fitted with a std wall plug. The rack breaks down into two pieces for transport, the bottom drawers and then the upper rack. It also comes with a base on rollers so it can be rolled forward for servicing of the rear of the cabinet. Specs are: 1753mm wide x 760mm deep x 2170mm high. The rack is a midnight blue colour. Currently holding 342dvds, 112 blurays and 420 CDs plus the equipment listed above. Also has room for another 112 blurays in the empty spare drawer. Behind the DVDs is more than double the space again for even more storage, I have all my VHS tapes stored back there.lol Six spare shelves will be supplied with the rack The rack is in a dedicated home theatre so is only used occasionally therefore it's in excellent condition. This custom rack cost me just shy of 3k to build. if your interested pm me and I can email some pics. cheers
  11. Following this thread closely as I'm attempting to improve my setup with REW atm. I've learnt a fair bit already by reading this thread alone. Keep posting your improvements Pie ;-) Matt
  12. I have tried to purchase polymax 48/100 and martini will not produce any unless you order a min of 12 full sheets. So I'm looking at autex aab 48/100, their $63 per 2400x1200x100mm sheet which isn't too bad for 48kg. http://www.autex.com.au/files/files/669_Autex_Absorption_Blanket_-_AAB.pdf I'm building ikea ivar bass traps which are 500mmx420mmx2.26m tall. It's another project taken from gearslutz forum.
  13. So you only have one in the room? I'm looking at putting two of theses in a 7x4.5m room. Do you think two would be enough in my situation?
