    Thicker Power cable?

    I sold off all my fancy power cords and am using medical grade (being orange means nothing) tested standard kettle cords sourced from a local hospital. Good sound advise from @Zaphod Beeblebrox and @Ittaku.

    Advice from the tube buffs please

    When I tried a GEC U52 rectifier on my Modwright LS100, it didn't do anything for me unfortunately and it was hard and expensive to source. Swapped it to an EML 5u4g mesh and its stayed in there for the last 3 years. . As you've pointed out best to start with a small collection of compatible tubes and keep it. Never know which/what combo's will sound the best.

    Poor @cazzesman .. To save yourself some time, pain and coin...best to ask Lukas himself. I'm sure he would have tested all viable tube options. It is a very biased topic and what sounds good to you one day..will certainly be second best down the track and then the cycle repeats itself. What I always found that at first the change will seem dramatic..but then listening over time the change seems subtle and you will want to try something else (part of the fun). Also, the best tube for the circuit does not need to be expensive and unobtainable rare versions of GEC, Mullards etc. Sure you could pay and source these, but without truly assessing its qualities, they may get microphonic, over time. Best of all...have fun in the process. Told you that you need tubes with your CX4's

    SOLD: FS: Asus DSL-AC88u

    Ditto. This router is a very very capable device, I have its older sibling AC-87 and use it the same way.

    nbn to “kill off top fixed wireless products”

    I wish i had that option :( Unfortunately my area is only capable of ADSL 2+ (really bad speeds - ave 4mbps). Telstra had no intentions to put in any cable infrastructure since NBN was around the corner, which i was told that it would be provisioned about 3 years back before i moved in. As an interim solution, I now use Vividwireless and get an ave of 9-10mbps for the same cost - $90 unlimited = small win.

    nbn to “kill off top fixed wireless products”

    The NBN rollout is a running joke. Just checked my area to be HFC provisioned - Jan to March 2019. Only delayed by 3 years when it was originally planned. Bring on 5G...
  8. Watched it last night. Agreed but TDK didnt have the number of characters A3 did and sufficient air time to cover each one deservingly. I had to rush out for toilet break during the end movie rolling credits (P.S - you have time to duck out quickly) before the end of credits scene rolls in. Yeah Thanos was a great villain. Exciting and tense right up to the end with non stop action. Teenage Groot finally pulls his socks up..lol. Quill annoyed me a bit with his childish antics. Will add this to the bluray collection.

    Yamaha SoundBar

    My brother has one. It does 'work' but to work really well, it depends on the room layout to reflect sound off walls etc. You'll need to spend time tweaking the sound delay etc to suit the listening areas, which took him a while to do. The sub is average but he's not critical like I am.
  10. Has anyone compared the XLR Canare versions over the XLR Van Dammes'? I have the latter just wondering if there are any differences (subtle) or not.

    dont think you're missing out much when using them with dual subs... i'm running my CX4's with subs, but i prefer them without with music. Switch on to HT.. another story all together with dual subs
