  1. I'm now thinking of these two: $1,196 - Hisense P6 65" Series 6 4K UHD Smart LED TV (https://www.jbhifi.com.au/hisense/hisense-p6-65-series-6-4k-uhd-smart-led-tv/636018/) and $1,395 - LG UK6340 65" UHD AI Smart LED TV (https://www.jbhifi.com.au/lg/lg-uk6340-65-uhd-ai-smart-led-tv/358658/). OK, the LG is above my budget, but who knows what a smile and some fast talking can achieve? So, what is the considered opinion of the collective wisdom of the intelligentsia?
  2. I have read that the upscaling on this model may not be us to scratch. True? BTW: Will go to Townsville when I have a (really) shortlist. It's about the same distance and time.
  3. Thanks for the reply but that's waaaay over my budget.
  4. My TV is dying, so what to buy? Sound is not an issue as it will be linked into my system - via TOSLINK because my AVR is > 10 years old so no back channel(?). Q1: STB or TOSLINK? Budget is < $1,300. Screen size at least 50". Q2: Are there any brands to steer clear of? Or are they all from the same factory but just come out of a different door? Q3: Conversely, are there any "don't go past" brands? Q4: Other? TIA EDIT: BTW, I live 600km southwest of Townsville so just dropping into a store is out of the question.
  5. Yeah, it seems there's a lot of trust that must be earned by we, the forum members. From my few, brief visits, all seems to be going well. Can only hope it continues.

  8. I won't go into the long, sad, expensive and frustrating story, but I may have to replace my Logitech Transporter. All I need is a WiFi streaming device capable of decoding FLAC and MP3. Stereo only. RCA outputs. Budget: under $1,000, will extend for something really, REALLY special. BTW: I am no longer in a position to audition equipment due to geographic location so everything will be on recommendations and reviews. So far all I've come across is the Yahama R-N301: comments? There's also http://melbournehifi.com.au/products/marantz-na8005-usb-dac-network-player but it over my budget. But it is Marantz. Others?
  9. Gee's that's a bloody good price on the AV7701! Chops: Thx, missed this place a bit put found that, overall, it just wasn't a fun place anymore. And miss the zany posts from The Duck.
  10. First time here for over a year - and I'm back for a reason. I bought a Marantz SR8002 reciever via a Group Buy about 7 years ago. It died about 2 weeks ago and the prognosis is not good. The reason I'm here is to explore my options should repair be uneconomical. See sig for current system components. As I have a power amp, any replacement does not need to have a power amp stage. I've read about the Marantz AV7701 but my budget won't stretch to that (maybe, but unlikely). So the requirements / constraints: * under $2,000; * at least the functionality of the 8002; * sonically compatible with the rest of my system. Over to the intelligentsia.
  11. That is sort of narrow minded thinking that is holding the country back. It's a case of "forget about the big picture, what's in it for me?" Alas, my country!
  12. No, we don't need the NBN. Just like, 100 years ago, we didn't need cars and good roads. Why do people need to go those massive distances, 10 - 30 kms have been enough since time began. These automobiles are nothing than a play toy for the privileged few - a horse and cart is that is needed. 20th Century technology is all we'll need for the 21st Century. Save the money!
