  1. Also Bunnings has boxes as well. See: https://www.bunnings.com.au/wrap-move-52l-heavy-duty-half-tea-chest-moving-carton_p2583461
  2. OK I've used them for shipping big 30kg HP DL380 Gen8 Servers from one site to another. Cost around $193 per Server which included supplying box, packing and courier costs. You can just buy the boxes and packing directly from them: https://www.packsend.com.au/packing-solutions/buy-boxes-packaging-online/ You can also get packing boxes from say these guys: https://www.signet.net.au/store/categories/shipping-cartons/heavy-duty-cartons Anyway just a suggestion.
  3. You could try Pack and Send: https://www.packsend.com.au/ They will pack it and then take to Courier to be sent to you. Just need a Pack and Send near location of equipment. Worth considering.
  4. Yes this is a very good product. I personally have 3 x Beresford TC-7220 (MK II) Dual Amplifier /Speaker Selector Switch Audio Router. http://www.homehifi.co.uk/S/selector.htm Always me to switch one Receiver & one Amplifier between my 6 Speakers. As others have said, Well built, and very usefu. http://www.homehifi.co.uk/S/tc-7210.htm GLWS.
  5. I'm sure you could ring or email QualiFi's Warranty Department and quote the Serial number and they could tell you.

  7. Re questions asking about box. I have the original box, original packing and everything that originally came with the Sony STR-DA1080 such as manual, remote and setup Mic. See additional photo showing these. Sorry for the lack of pictures, but my Sony STR-DN1080 is still actively being used, and I didn't want to pull it out of my equipment rack just to take pictures of it.
  8. Item: Sony STR-DN1080 Receiver Location: Wagga Wagga NSW 2650 Price: $600 ono Item Condition: Excellent - Like new (only 10 month old) Product details on Sony Site: https://www.sony.com.au/electronics/av-receivers/str-dn1080 Here is one of many glowing reviews of the Sony STR-DN1080: https://www.whathifi.com/sony/str-dn1080/review I have the original box, original packing and everything that originally came with the Sony STR-DA1080 such as manual, remote and setup Mic. See additional photo showing these. Sorry for the lack of pictures, but my Sony STR-DN1080 is still actively being used, and I didn't want to pull it out of my equipment rack just to take pictures of it. Reason for selling: Moving to a 7.1.2 Speaker Config and Sony STR-DN1080 will either do 7.1 or 5.1.2 but not 7.1.2, so I've purchased a Yamaha RX-A3080. I also have a Sony TA-DA9000ES (as pictured in Photos) and the remote for Sony STR-DN1080 Receiver also operates the Sony TA-DA9000ES. Because of this I have to leave the Sony TA-DA9000ES unplugged from power otherwise it turns on TA-DA9000ES when using the STR-DN1080. Both units are connected to my Speakers via a set of Amp Switchers. What is important to me is my DA9000ES as I use this for SACD, DVD-Audio & CD and the DN1080 is only used for Movies, Netflix & TV etc. My Wife uses the DN1080 for Music. The STR-DN1080 is a fantastic unit. A google search will find numerous glowing reviews from online reviewers, but also from very satisfied owners. I've purchased the Yamaha so I don't have this issue and my Sony TA-DA9000ES can remain plugged into power to keep its capacitors "wet". It is 17 years old, so I don't want any preventable failures. Payment Method: Paypal Extra Info: This Sony is Grey Import from Europe by Australia Supplier (Electronic Forefront in Carlingford, NSW), is 240 volts, has a Europe power plug (but supplied with Euro to Aust adapter), and has Australian base warranty until 15th June 2019. I have the original box & packing materials etc. and happy to sent to buyer at buyers expense. Pictures:
  9. So the second phase of DVB-T2 Trial has commenced. See: https://www.broadcastaustralia.com.au/second-phase-of-dvb-t2-trial-commences/ https://www.txaustralia.com.au/news/513-dvb-t2-trial-second-phase-commences-in-brisbane-gold-coast-march-to-april-2019 Has anyone in these areas picked up any test transmissions on Channel 28 (529.5 MHz), yet? Be interested to know if anyone has.

  10. As posted by M'bozo on whirlpool here: https://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-replies.cfm?t=2713352&p=12#r236 DVB-T2 trial happening on Gold Coast now. See: https://www.txaustralia.com.au/news/505-the-future-of-tv-being-trialled-on-the-gold-coast Looks like the channels being used from Mt Tamborine are 28 (529.5MHz & 43 (634.5) https://web.acma.gov.au/rrl/assignment_search.lookup?pEFL_ID=4361861 https://web.acma.gov.au/rrl/assignment_search.lookup?pEFL_ID=4361868 Good to see they are testing DVB-T2 in other locations as well. I guess they will do the same testing they did in Sydney and finish with 4K Tests BA have details on their Web site too.

  11. https://www.rohde-schwarz.com/au/about/news-press/details/press-room/press-releases-detailpages/rohde-schwarz-facilitates-australian-dvb-t2-trials-press_releases_detailpage_229356-571850.html R&S TLU9 50 W transmitter https://www.rohde-schwarz.com/au/product/tlu9-productstartpage_63493-201385.html Used for two sites on frequency 536.500Mhz at Kings Cross and Manly. R&S ETL TV analyzer https://www.rohde-schwarz.com/au/product/etl-productstartpage_63493-9255.html R&S BTC broadcast test center https://www.rohde-schwarz.com/au/product/btc-productstartpage_63493-42003.html I'm assuming they also supplied the R&S®THV9 VHF Transmitter for test transmissions on VHF at 212.500Mhz from Gore Hill. https://www.rohde-schwarz.com/au/product/thv9-productstartpage_63493-45320.html Rohde & Schwarz held several DVB-T2 Workshops in late 2017 See: https://www.rohde-schwarz.com/au/campaigns_3/dvbt2-workshop_231663.html You get the feeling that Rohde & Schwarz might have been driving the recently trial.
  12. It's my understanding that some of our Broadcasters have 4K Cameras and facilities now. Foxtel are marketing all the Cricket in 4K. That means they must have convinced Seven to agree to do the BBL & WBBL in 4K as well. Otherwise I don't know how they could be doing these in 4K. Also with regard to Foxtel, apparently there are 4 trucks that Foxtel use that are 4K capable. During the recent DVB-T2 trials conducted in Sydney they had three LCNs. 401 = 4K, 402 = 1080p, 403 = 540p. From the 4K transmissions, here are screenshots from: Nine 4K: https://i.imgur.com/02RzIln.jpg ABC 4K: https://i.imgur.com/VWCUk35.jpg SBS 4K: https://i.imgur.com/G6mUbJw.jpg NITV 4K: https://i.imgur.com/vx1srv7.jpg Here's the demo loop uploaded to YouTube in its original 4K resolution. This was uploaded in 4K, but YouTube only seems to have made it available in 1080p.The SBS section had to be edited out due to a copyright claim from FIFA.
  13. Yes we should have started the planning phase of moving to DVB-T2 years.
