  10. In more EV news... PSA (Peugeot Citroen DS, Opel) is setting up its own battery production... https://www.electrive.com/2019/06/17/psa-sets-up-battery-production-in-slovakia/ PSA sets up battery production in Slovakia The French car manufacturer PSA intends to assemble the battery packs for electric and hybrid cars of its Peugeot, Citroën and DS brands at its Trnava (Slovakia) plant and later also at its Vigo (Spain) plant. The Peugeot e-208, among other things, is manufactured in Trnava. The company also expects to assemble battery packs in some of its other factories in the future as soon as sales of electric cars increase, said Peugeot manager Yann Vincent. PSA currently purchases its battery cells from the South Korean company LG Chem and the Chinese supplier CATL. While the production paths for the e-208 in Slovakia tend to be shorter, the production of the Opel Corsa-e is different: More than 800 kilometers lie between the planned battery assembly plant in Vigo on the Atlantic coast in eastern Spain and the Opel plant in Zaragoza. PSA is in the middle of preparing the transition to the electric age: By 2025, the carmaker intends to offer offshoots with electric or hybrid drives for all 40 models of its subsidiary brands. It will start in 2019 with all-electric versions of the Peugeot e-208 and the DS 3 Crossback. In addition to the Opel Corsa-e, the electric version of the Peugeot 2008 will follow in 2020. PSA’s plug-in hybrid offensive will start in 2019 with a corresponding offshoot of the DS 7 Crossback, the PHEV versions of the Peugeot 3008 and 5008 models, the Citroën C5 Aircross and the above-mentioned Grandland X. The PSA DS 3 Crossback will also be available as a PHEV.
  11. In EV news... Volkswagen to build battery factory in germany...... https://www.drive.com.au/news/volkswagen-invests-900m-in-swedish-battery-maker-121675.html Volkswagen invests €900m in Swedish battery maker Volkswagen set to build a battery factory in Germany Volkswagen AG has announced a €900 million ($1.467 billion) investment into an electric vehicle battery joint venture with Swedish firm Northvolt AB. According to VW, part of the above sum "is intended for a joint venture" with the battery producer, while a further portion of the investment will go directly to Northvolt in return for around 20 per cent of the company's shares and one seat on the Board of Directors. Beyond the initial settlement, Volkswagen also plans to create a 50/50 joint venture with Northvolt to build a European battery cell factory in Lower Saxony, Salzgitter (Germany), with an output of 16GWh. Construction of the facility is planned to commence in 2020 "at the earliest", with battery cell production for Volkswagen to kick off in 2023/2024. "Volkswagen is laying the groundwork at all levels for the successful implementation of its electrification strategy," said Stefan Sommer, member for the Volkswagen AG Board of Management responsible for Procurement.
  12. going back to this homer. I know mention upgrading to top level denon AVR... I wouldn't ... the 7200wa is decent enough in pre amp stage...just loose in the buy sell and replace. if want to go up an affordable option will be buy a 5 channel amp eg rotel here https://lifestylestore.com.au/rotel-rmb1555-5-channel-power-amplifier.html will pick up all the base channels and can leave the rest of the surrounds running off the AVR. if want could even bi-amp the mains and also feed the centre... off something like that and have all the rest surrounds off the avr. anther option a bit cheaper to similar in cost might be an elektra T7 or theatre HD that turns up and would be in the $1500 to $2.5k or so 2nd hand. just thinking with calibre of mains and centre you have really deserves better ... actually even looking at calibre of one of surrounds can see in one of your posts ... gosh they deserve better in the amplification stakes
  13. look good thing is its been thorough its initial teething period and nothing to report... that's a good thing
