  1. Evening It will be much appreciated if you would/could clarify what you are actually sellin. Thanks
  2. Agree with all others re room treatment, directivity of speakers etc. Another option? Have you considered active speakers? For looks - maybe Kef actives - e.g. LS50 will be appropriate - that means speakers and amps are sorted out. If the bass is not enough maybe then add a subwoofer. Dynaudio, PMC, Adam and many others also make active speakers. I srongly suggest going to a shop and listen to speakers/ams in your budget We can give advice , but in the end you have to listen what you buy.
  3. I had Sennheiser HD 800 headphones that was really nice paired with a Luxman headphone amp. May I suggest that you go and visit Addicted to Audio. Enjoy the journey.
  4. I use this: https://www.gadgets4geeks.com.au/epages/shop.sf/en_AU/?ObjectPath=/Shops/gadgets4geeks/Products/BTTC-500P-GRY The Avantree products get good reviews. I have not compared it to other stuff for listening, but as a receiver it beats Logitech. Long range helps when walking around in the house and garden.
  5. Alan is normally quite good in responding. I hope you make some progress. I would also suggest you put DEQX in your topic line as well as post in the DEQX owner's thread.
  6. @EV Cali @Prana69 What would your suggestions be for a cartridge on the Rotel RP 850? Please
  7. Waiting for the verdict - that MF amp does do well, so wonder what the valves will do?
  8. Most likely not. The amp is rated 120 W /channel into 8 ohm. It can still drive 6 ohm speakers. Depending on the specs, design etc, it may not drive 6 ohm speakers to 120 W.
  9. Thanks! You are doing a great job! I have a 6 year old laptop i5 running 24 hours and are far behind you! I started a 8 year old mac mini as well this morning to see what it can do. In a few weeks time I may be able to add a new PC. What PC do you use?
  10. Contact @Bill125812 he can make you one.
  11. This was my system from 2011 to 2014. What you can see are: a Panasonic VT58 inch Plasma, Opera Consonance 845s mono blocks and Osborn Eclipse Tower Reference speakers. What you cannot see are: Panasonic BluRay player,Apple TV, Yamaha RXV 2067 AVR, Osborn Centre speaker and surround speakers, laptop, Luxman headphone amp, Sennheiser HD800 headphones and Audio Aero Capitole CD/SACD/DAc/Preamp, all hidden in the cabinet to make sure I have a happy life. (The cardboard under the speakers were my "sliders" for moving them around - later replaced by Herbies feet.) I have sold the headphone side, and still have the rest, will post more photos. But I have so much more now - photos - and for sale ads coming .
  12. Further information: Opera Consonance PW-1 Power Board or as Greg descibes it: Audio Grade Hi-Fi mains filter a Line Conditioner and Line Protector. All the info is right here: https://www.osbornloudspeakers.com.au/power-boards Basically it is a power board and filter and line conditioner that accepts power plugs from many countries. I am selling as I am downsizing and simplifying. Please let me know if you have any questions. Photos:
  13. Hi I have created a team, just enter the number when you join: 267219 Thanks
  14. Who is behind this? https://foldingathome.org/category/fah-team-members/
  15. @soundbyte - you can also check this link To me looks like there is a bucket load of IT people already involved: https://stats.foldingathome.org/teams I am trying to do some good here. If you are interested - please participate, if you don't - I respect your opinion.
  16. I understand your concerns. I normally use Mac's for security reasons and I use Internet Security and Virus Software programs as well. Of course I too was quite sceptical until I started to research this in detail. Check out the people behind this, e.g. Stanford University in the USA. Since I joined I have not had a single event to doubt this, but you do not have to believe me. If you are not interested - I fully understand. If you are interested, there is ample info on the internet.
  17. I have recently discovered that everyone with spare computer processing capacity can help research in many areas, including Covid-19. Basically you download some software and then your computer help with research. All it cost is some electricity, a small price to advance science. Check out https://foldingathome.org/. I would love to see a SNA team on there! This what this group is saying: We are focusing the Foldingathome compute power on SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, and the human proteins the virus interacts with. First, we uncovered novel protein structures that were previously inaccessible to the research community. With your help, we are now screening for potential drugs to target these structures as a part of the COVID Moonshot Collaboration. https://foldingathome.org/
  18. GLWTS Great product. I am simplifying and downsizing at the moment so not buying anything.
  19. I do not wish to offend but the soldering in that photo does not look good. In your photo the red wire appears to have been soldered to the terminal closest to the white wire.
  20. Price drop to $180 each or if you take both to $340 for both.
  21. @cafad knows the burson stuff and may be able to say something re the opamps. You are in Brisbane Gieseler is in the Gold Coast. See if you can get to one of the Hi-Fi shops there too. There are some other topics here re dacs and based on that it looks like the qutest may be the one to cut from the list.
  22. You need a usb to spdif converter. There are many and it depends on your budget. I have used an Audiophilleo for many years. Singxer, Schiit, Gustard, Yellowtec are names that come to mind, but there are really many that suits all types of budget. I would suggest using Google to see the various option and maybe put a WTB post up on SNA. Used prices are much better than new. (And then beware of going down the cable hole )
