  1. Now sold, thanks for the interest.
  2. I knew you would find it! (Lots of info over at Computeraudiophile. I am stuck in spdif land and very happy with their Digione.)
  3. @poweravCheck out Allo products
  4. Cooling setup for AVR

    Re dust and other stuff. Isn't it amazing what get stuck on fans. Does not matter if it is ceiling fans, aircons, computers, TV's etc. Does not matter if it is high, low in a cabinet or not either. Where possible I have filters or screens and I taught myself to regularly clean everything with a fan. Just one of those things that we need airflow with its side effects.

    Great amps and fantastic price!
  6. Maybe VAF in Adelaide can help - they do printed speaker covers.
  7. Cooling setup for AVR

    I should have looked at the picture in more detail. In any cabinet IMHO you have to have as much airflow as possible. I make as big holes as possible at the back - make connections of cables a lot of easier. I even went further and drilled holes in the shelves. IME the USB ports only work when item is switched on. USB fan will only run then.
  8. If curtains are a no no. Blinds? The Osborne and VAF's are good value for money. Bigger speakers may be able to "pressurise" the room more. Same could be done by more speakers as in 7 or 9. As you add speakers you may need to upgrade AVR or add power amps. I am in the latter camp. The room may make more speakers also difficult but you could look at in wall and in ceiling. I don't do room correction for 2 channel, but I think it helps for multichannel. Does not matter what speakers you have - they will not solve the room. Don't despair not many of us have perfect rooms you just have to learn what works best.
  9. I had the Thor PS10 and if I could afford it I would have kept it. The PS10 is a much higher level product in the sense that it is a variac transformer - it keeps a constant voltage. It then has a powerboard as well. Some members here reckons the powerboard has a negative impact on power amps. To tell you the truth I don't know. I just plug my power amps into the wall outlets. My powerboards are used with my CD players/dacs/other stuff and IMO they are successfully providing "clean" power. And provide some protection against voltage spikes etc.
  10. Item: Consonance PW1 Line Conditioner and Line Filter x2 Location: Grafton NSW Price: $165 plus postage , Paypal etc. each Item Condition: Used Reason for selling: Simplifying, decluttering Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I have three of these. One I bought new, the other 2 I bought here on SNA. I just absolutely love them as they do an excellent job and take any power plug, Aussie, US etc. I am keeping one, but as I am going from three systems to one system I just don't need them anymore. There are a lot of info here and on the net. They are used so may have some evidence of use which does not effect their purpose.

  11. Cooling setup for AVR

    There are a few options. I note the product that you refer to has several models with the cheapest starting at US$46 - IMO a good price for a good looking solution with temp control. I use a quiet laptop cooling fan connected to a usb output - either front of AVR (not nice) my blu ray player or my TV (this has been working for more than 5 years) Would be great if your AVR had a usb port at the back. Master/slave extension boards can work You can build your own with relays, thermostats etc. The problem is the total cost. Bunnings sells an Arlec remote controlled power supply for $18 - just plug your usb charger and fan into that and switch the fan on via remote control. I dont think it matters that much where the air blows to or from - e.g sideways, front to back or up and down - you just have to have airflow. @darren69 has built a system based on posts here based on temp.

    All the best mate - take your time. Life is journey and there are ups and downs. Many of us have been there and understand. Most important is to do what ever you have to do to get through. If Imay offer advice - just as you asked for advice and help with speakers - do ask for help on personal things from those qualfied to do so.
