    No more riding for me

    @Marc My wife is a long term fybromyalgia sufferer - the only thing that works is Lyrica/Gabapanthin(spelling) - both has side effects whilst using and after, so be careful, but it is very effective. (Both the products may lead to suicide tendencies). Maybe it is a solution? Valium and Endone are highly addictive, actually all opoids are, so please be careful. Not to say you cannot/should not take them - just be careful , as in not too much etc. Apologies, I have no idea re cannabis related products. I have had sciatica in 2007 and lost all control of a foot - it was fixed over time and with physio after a painblocking injection during a CT scan. I have recently had damage to my ulnar nerve - nerve running from elbow to hand - far out - I popped 2 Norufens every 2 hours just to cope, and had very little sleep for 2 weeks. Just popped the painkillers and waited for it to get better. Wanted to cut off the arm from elbow and below. I am fully with you ther - untill experienced no one has th foggiest idea what nerve pain is. In the end Accucupuncture worked wonders. So: Please ask the Dr's for stuff that may help without dependancy issues. Try Accupunture Try really good physiotherapists And, mate all the best, you are in a position most people do not wish to be in and cannot comprehend. I am very sorry for it and wish you all the best.
  3. @Pcignorant You have a serious investment in computers and hifi gear - I am jealous. I was an early adopter of jplay - unfortunately to date there are not many users as far as I know in Australia. I have since moved to a simpler setup. In my opnion if you wish to follow a jPlay route you need to ask for help on all the forums and try step by step to sort things out. In other words try the jPlay forum first, then SNA , Audiophile Style (Computer Audiophile) DIY Audio etc etc. It may be worthwile to post a post: Please help with jPlay setup on SNA. Sorry for not being able to address your specific questions.
  4. Item: Livescribe 3 Pro edition with moleskin journal cover and refills Location: Grafton NSW Price: $100 postage included Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: I dont use it - just love my fountain pens too much. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This is a good video: https://www.officeworks.com.au/shop/officeworks/p/livescribe-3-smartpen-mgapx00020 The Livescribe 3 pen in Pro/Black/Moleskin editions are the same thing. It is basically a pen that you use on special paper (purchased or printed) which then allow you to record writing and sound to your phone and do wonderful things with it. What I have to sell is the pen, the moleskin journal cover (discontinued, but nice) and several refills. You can buy journals(books) from the website or print you own. Lots of info on the internet. Sorry, I dont have the original box etc. There is nothing cheaper on ebay . Pictures: Let me know if you want, but the pen and journal cover looks like th eones in this photo : https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Livescribe-3-Smartpen-Pro-Smart-Pen-Android-iOS-2-extra-Journals-Ink-Refills/153402325576?hash=item23b77dba48:g:EqAAAOSwgrZcVkZk&frcectupt=true

    Hi A9X Will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance
  7. @LogicprObe Wow - interesting angle - I think we are all on a journey or 2 - the one you pick and try to manage and the one that just happens.
  8. I dont have the choices of the OP, but I am always trying to minimise the boxes. Currently my system consist of: Auralic Aries - control with phone Audio Aero Dac/CD/SACD/Pre - control with remote if needed. Consonance amps Speakers I know I can do better, but I am happy with what I have.

    I think I understand what you are saying, but it will be much appreciated if you could elaborate with more detail, schematics etc. What you are saying sounds great, I am not that tecnically educated/experienced and need all the help I can get. Thanks

    Best site I know of is: http://www.dodocus.de/ He could possibly build something for you. Maybe a bit expensive? I understand what you are trying to, but what I dont understand is how your AVR can output both main and pre out to the fronts? Do you have different "scenes" or menu options to be able to switch fronts between mains and pre outs?
  11. I have been on the site for a few years and have met wonderful people as a result of it I am less active than I was as I am making peace with what I have and as I have no money to upgrade . To the OP's question - I dont really know why people leave, I guess it is like everything in life where it is a journey. As we are on our journeys we have different needs and wants. I am still here as Audio is my hobby. I like communicating with members and continiously learning.
  12. Item: Oppo 203 Price: $1,050 Item Condition: As new Reason for selling: I need money and the family is more interested in Netflix. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I bought this in about September last year with big plans to finally resurrect my surround sound system. We have used it for a few blu rays and dvd's (less than 10) and then went back to Netflix. It is a great piece of equipment working wonderfully, but my family is quite content with Netflix via Apple TV. My surround sound dreams are also shelved again due to a lack of funds. I have all the original packaging material. I am in Grafton, Northern NSW and am able to post a buyers expense. Pictures: Let me know if you want some. It is as new, there are no marks, dents etc.
  13. Visted Coffs Audio yesterday and they told me that they Apple TV, especially the latest one is almost 100% what they install now. Not what I wanted to hear as I mainly use a mac mini.
  14. Yes, stock pic, for the price I would go and have a look.

    I dont have a definive answer, just some recommendations: I have Osborn speakers, but have never heard the Eos. Any of his speakers will do well with your amps.His speakers are great value for money. I love Lenehen loudspeakers. No offence to Greg, but Mike is is a master at his craft. See if you can pick up a set of ML2's (rather than 1's IMO). Whatever you do, please do auditions, take your time and buy what you like :).
