  1. 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.
  2. I'm sure you could ring or email QualiFi's Warranty Department and quote the Serial number and they could tell you. Here are the details: QualiFi Pty Ltd Warranty Department 24 Lionel Road Mt Waverley Vic 3149 Ph: 03 8542 1144 E: service@qualifi.com.au Taken from: https://www.qualifi.com.au/warranty_terms/Marantz/2

  4. 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.
  5. 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:
  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. 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.
  10. Yes we should have started the planning phase of moving to DVB-T2 years.
  11. Just posting these last comment to get this thread back on topic of the FTA 4K DVB-T2 & HEVC Trials. If you haven't read these two media releases posted on the Broadcast Australia web site, then they might be of interest to you. I meant to post them earlier today when I resurrected this thread. But got busy so didn't get back here to do it. Broadcast industry celebrates first ever trial of 4K television in Australia https://www.broadcastaustralia.com.au/broadcast-industry-celebrates-first-ever-trial-of-4k-television-in-australia-broadcast-australia/ Here is a special page BA setup on their site called "Next Generation Television Trials Australia" https://www.broadcastaustralia.com.au/next-generation-television-trials-australia/ Video to watch here: https://youtu.be/PMoXP8ALOns?list=PLzNEFHE2R4AwSfAHz3pw2oj75j7HcBbE7 Broadcast Australia and Free TV bring the next generation of TV one step closer to Australians with successful completion of DVB-T2 laboratory trials https://www.broadcastaustralia.com.au/broadcast-australia-and-free-tv-complete-dvb-t2-laboratory-trials-broadcast-australia/ Also if you have already read this, you might find this Technical Analysis: DVB-T2 Australian Television Networks Test Transmission of some interest: http://goughlui.com/2018/05/30/analysis-dvb-t2-australian-television-networks-test-transmission/ Sorry if some of you have already read or seen these, but some people may not have.
  12. I'm running mixed Speaker Impedance of 6Ω (3 Infinity Speakers FR, FL C) & 8Ω (4 Speakers SL & SR (Boston Acoustics VRS Pro) & Atmos FDR & FDL (Pioneer SP-T22A-LR)) using a Sony DN1080 that is configured as a 5.1.2 setup. The included doco with Receiver says it won't drive 4Ω Impedance Speakers. I've had no issues.
  13. So the myswitch site (see below) says you're not covered by any Terrestrial TV Transmitters? https://myswitch.digitalready.gov.au/ What Dish size do you have installed?
  14. This is off-topic but......You shouldn't have to keep realigning the Sat Dish and/or LNB if it is securely correctly and installed correctly. If this is happening then the mounting hardware is no appropriate for your situation. I have two Sat Dishes on my roof (120cm Dish and 90cm) which have been there for years, and I have never had to realign the Sat Dish and/or LNB. I made sure I purchased mounting hardware for both Dishes that doesn't allow any movement of the Sat Dish and/or LNB. No the VAST Sat Decoder, Dish & LNB etc are not free. The same as the TV Antenna on my roof wasn't free. Yes the TV Antenna on my roof didn't cost as much as as the VAST gear, but if you want FTA TV and there is no Terrestrial TV Transmitters in your area (for whatever reason), then VAST is your only option. Not sure why you don't have any Terrestrial TV Transmitters near you. Perhaps you are locate in a blackspot area (hills or mountain between you and the transmitter site). Or just too far away from the nearest transmitter site to receive sufficient signal. Anyway VAST was designed to Service people in the above situations. If you didn't have VAST, you would have nothing.
