  1. 4/5 mainly by eliminating the hyperbole. As with one of the previous posters I try to focus on the negative reviews and have a look at why the review was negative, especially when dealing with accommodation. With respect to audio I usually come here. Having spent a few years on the forum you get a bit of an idea of what people like in their equipment, the biased, the balanced etc.
  2. this is a real rabbit hole. Steep learning curve and potentially 000's of $$ investment if you want to The best visual and photographic scopes dont have a lot of overlapping features, what is best for one isnt ideal for the other. If you only wish to take photos this isnt a concern I've dealt a lot with Bintel over the years and only received honest advice from them so if you've consulted them I would be confident in following their advice. Have you considered what style of photography you want to do? i.e wide field, deep sky, planetary etc. Apart from shorter exposures required for lunar/planetary, the quality of the mount and tracking equipment has a huge bearing on the outcome. Different and more specialised equipment is typically required if you want images of faint galaxies and colourful nebulae. Software is your friend- much more is possible these days with digital info and autoregistration/stacking of multiple exposures to maximize whatever equipment you have If you don't already have a scope (sounds like you a re buying one specifically for photography) you have a number of paths to pursue. I'd be inclined to skip the scope altogether to start with and cut your teeth on the photography side of things with your camera directly mounted to an equatorial mount. Apologies if you have already done this. Above is one option. My recommendation would depend on a number of factors, including whether you want to do visual, but your intended targets are a big consideration. . Size, portability, computerised or manual are some others.

  5. Press "Play Music" on Harmony remote Press Play to start Looking at investing in Sonos for multi room and family friendliness so the process may change soon
  6. My (possibly incorrect) definition has always been Height, Width and Depth. Others may refer to it as the ability of the system to 'make the speakers disappear' which on the same lines. Having heard my speakers create 2 vastly different soundstages when driven by varied amps in different rooms, i must agree that the room plays a big part
  7. Hi there, This particular unit does not come with a remote. I'm not sure what's involved in retro fitting one but I assume it's possible.
  8. Hi there, I am the seller of the pre ZB linked to. The original listing was for both power and pre hence the power being in the photos. I decided to keep the power. Ad is definitely for pre only

  11. Previous correspondence indicated it was an 'A' variant but if there is a defining feature that isn't included in the photos that I can look for to verify then please let me know.
