  1. These bring back fond memories, they were my gateway drug into spending a crap load of money on hifi gear. Great sound for the money, GLWTS.
  2. It’s enough to drive you made isn’t it. Sorry I couldn’t help.
  3. I have found PLEX to be weird with my USB drive. While I can access it in Linux through the file manager I cannot find folders vis PLEX unless it is formatted in NTFS. When you are in PLEX and pointing it to where you keep your movies can you see the folder on the drive where you keep your movies or just the drive itself? If I use any format other than NTFS I can only see the drive and not the folders and PLEX will not load anything,
  4. I wish I could offer more but I’m very much the beginner with Linux.
  5. I have also tried different file formats. I found that I could get Plex to recognise the drive with all formats but Plex would only see folders on the drive when I use NTFS.
  6. Thanks for the kind words and I hope it saves someone some pain and frustration😀
  7. The last time I used Ink Hub. A great price and I think they got them to me the next day. I would definitely use them again. https://www.inkhub.com.au
  8. I have recent bought a NUC of SNA and decided that I would like to use it as a Roon core and to share my family photos and videos using Plex. I have never used (or even seen) Linux and while installing Roon was straight forward getting PLEX up and running was a challenge. I had no problem installing PLEX but I could not get it to create libraries from the USB SSD I had my media stored on. I have spent the the last couple of days on this problem and there is a lot of advice, suggestions and different solutions offered on forums and I have tried a lot of them. I eventually found the following process that worked and got me up and running. I thought I would share this with the SNA community in case anyone has this problem in the future. The process is very simple... Cheers, Darren GUI method plug in the drive. Go to Disks in the desktop finder (or sudo gnome-diskson a terminal) Select the correct disk in the left column. Click the gear icon Select edit mount options Turn off Check both mount at startup and show user interface Thats it! shareimprove this answer edited Nov 22 '17 at 5:57 Ciro Santilli 新疆改造中心法轮功六四事件 13.7k66 gold badges5959 silver badges6363 bronze badges answered Nov 11 '14 at 20:21
  9. I first tried Roon a couple a yeas ago when I used the free trail. I wasn’t impressed and the need to use a PC put me of as it wasn’t family friendly. About a month ago I bought a yearly membership and again wasn’t impressed...until I bought NUC of SNA to use as a dedicated core and gave myself some time to get used to how Roon works. Now I love it. It just works, no mucking around, no glitches , the GUI is slick and intuitive and the way it recommends music is incredible. The team at Roon have done a great job and really picked a need in the market: makes you wonder why someone didn’t develop this earlier.
  10. Haha fair enough. I plan to give them a call over the next couple of days 👍
  11. I like the sound of that....was that through the Myfoxtel app?
  12. I watched the final episode of season two last night, what a fantastic ending! Can’t wait for season 3, anyone know when it is supposed to be out?
  13. Item: 2 Beyonwiz HD PVR's (DP-H1 & DP-Lite) Location: Ascot Vale, 3032 Price: Free to good home - donation to SNA, I will leave it to your conscience Item Condition: OK Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup only Extra Info: I have had these for a while with them sitting in sotrage for the last few years. I have no use for them so thought they might be of use to somoene else. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  14. Brian Cox plays a great role as the father, perfect casting. I have only one episode to go
  15. Thanks for your input. I had wondered if the IQ 4 would be an improvement. I might have to bite the bullet and get an IQ4, I just don’t want to give Foxtel anymore money ,I have a love hate relationship with them.
  16. I recently bought a TV to replace my old Panasonic Plasma (Samsung QR 60). I have spend some time playing with the colours and have the picture looking good for everything except for some content when using the Foxtel IQ3. Previously I would use the IQ3 for watching (and recording) all free to air stuff. Unfortunately the difference in picture quality between the TV’s internal tuner and the IQ3 is so great I wont use the IQ3 anymore (the colours can be very red). Has anybody else come across this?
  17. Anyone been watching Succession on Foxtel? It is a fantastic show, I am totally addicted and I don’t really know why. I thought I would through this out there in case anyone was looking for a good show to binge on and might not have heard about it. Enjoy, Darren
  18. Item: Audeze LCD2 complete with box Location: Melbourne - Ascot Vale Price: $750 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Not a headphone guy Payment Method: Pickup only - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I am not a headphone guy but in Sep 2019 I had the urge to buy some audio gear and purchase these from SNA (the link to the add is below). I have used them for probably 4 hours and while they sound fantastic, no matter how much I want to get into headphones, I just find it too limiting to be tied to the one spot by a cable. I have replaced the pads with Dekoni Audio Elite Fenestrated Sheepskin pads (fromA2A) and the headphones are in fantastic condition. In fact, I gave them a good look over when I took the pictures and I could not fault them, the previous owner certainly looked after these. Original add is here.....

  19. I used these guys a few years back and they were ok. https://servicesphere.com.au/
  20. I will let you in on the secret...there is no end game, its a modern take on a primordial urge to hunt and want more. But don’t be disheartened as this is where the fun lies. The real fun in this hobby is the want, get, try and repeat. Once you accept this (and move into the second hand market) you will find peace in knowing you will never be content.
  21. More into natural sounding timbre, great sounding vocals and imaging (sucker for a sweat midrange). Given your music taste I would steer you towards the Harbeth, without a doubt. I would also point you towards the C7 rather than to he 30.1. Perfect for timber, vocals and mid range.
