  1. Hello Tom, I bought my projector in similar circumstances to what your purchaser will be doing; pre-owned at orders of magnitude less than new retail! The original owner had apparently spent $350 000 on his Home Theatre room, then the new owner gutted it to convert it into a games/theatre room. Ah, the rich.... I haven't done anything about 3D, though with the ridiculous headroom that a Xenon bulb provides, should be a great candidate for it. Maybe one day. I use an HTPC with MadVR, and downscale 4K to good effect however....something else your buyer could bear in mind. At the risk of going off-thread, could you do me a favour? With the fans/ducting I have installed, I am getting about 50 degrees celsius on the 4 internal temperature points; I imagine yours would run similarly to mine....could you check those and let me know? I just want to ensure that my cooling is adequate or whether I need to bump up the airflow. PM is fine if you prefer Thanks and regards, Phil
  2. Hello Tom, I am using a Wolf Cinema DCX 1000i, which is apparently a hot-rodded Christie HD6. I agree with all your comments regarding the 3 chip DLP xenon-lamped Christies, although I have not compared with consumer level 4K. They are an astounding value for money in the second hand market, and with a bit of detective work, replacement lamps can be found at a somewhat reasonable cost. As you also mentioned, fan noise can be a con. In my case, even more so as Wolf Cinema add additional inlet and exhaust fans and ducting! I am in the process of soffit mounting which will be virtually silent. A hush box is an achievable DIY project for the new owner. I felt I was taking a bit of a punt buying such a big, commercial offering to replace my JVC HD350, but it was an immense leap up in quality, and I'm sure the buyer of your projector will not regret the purchase....good luck with the sale! Regards, Phil
  3. I had a pleasant visit from Tony late this week....he did a road trip to Sydney, where he did a calibration on my aging 1080p projector. The cal was everything I could've hoped for. The projector was a bit quirky, which meant Tony had a bit of a learning curve with it, but he dove in boots and all and nutted it out in short order, and indeed seemed to revel in it's adjustability. I'm not the best photographer, and I don't have any 'before' shots, but here a few 'after' shots........
  4. Hello Chris, Sure is; you're the first nibble. Regards, Phil
  5. Item: Professional video tripod Price Range: Free Item Condition: Used Extra Info: I am offering a professional video tripod. I forget the brand now, but the triangle and circle logo is an aussie company started by Robert Eric Miller before or after he founded Miller Tripods. It's a beast; about 1m retracted, about 1.7m extended. It has a fluid head and bowl. The thread on the shaft at the bottom where the wingnut is is stripped; you can see the wingnut is upside-down just to hold it in place. The camera plate is also missing. All this means it is probably best suited to be 're-purposed' as a lamp stand or something, although it could be rebuilt. The fluid head is still smooth and buttery, if a bit stiff. Sorry for the crap pics, but I couldn't be arsed to take 'em again for a freebie. If it's of interest to you, they're good enough to see what I'm talking about! I am located in 2229 Lilli Pilli in Sydney (near Cronulla). I am available most days, but can leave on front landing if I am going to be out. Regards, Phil

Sorry the pics look a bit yucky, I was trying to draw out details on the black fascia... Regards, Phil
  8. Thought I'd give this ad a resurrection; three and a half years later, they're still in the garage taking up space. C'mon diyers; good to tidy up for a project!
