  1. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com.au%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F283353160256 Concrete cabinets for Ardens, $500.
  2. Item: 2 x Martini Absorb XHD 100mm black Location: Western Sydney Price: $200 for both or $120 each sheet Item Condition: New, package opened Reason for selling: Surplus to my needs Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: 2400mm x 1200mm x 100mm. Originally bought 3 packs of 3 sheets, but only used 7 sheets, and now the remaining two are eating the limited space in my parents' garage. Bring appropriate vehicle for transportation. If you buy both sheets, I'll throw in the insulation handsaw which was very effective at cutting the sheets (if I can find it!) Pictures: Will post pictures this evening, but will be kind of unremarkable (since it's still in packaging, also garage is messy) Here they are:
  3. Any pictures of it on a Thorens TD160?

    How about bigger missus?
  5. How long does it typically take to rip SACD to ISO using this?
  6. Hi, are these still for sale?

    Lids and hinges

    So I bought a custom plinth for my Thorens TD145 a while ago, and never got around to installing a dust cover for it. I know that there are some places in Sydney that will fabricate a perspex lid for me, but say I want to install it onto the plinth using hinges – how would I go about doing this? Is there a special hinge store that can help me? Do hinges have adjustable tension? Is there a particular kind of hinge I should be using? So many questions.. If anyone has gone through this experience, let me know

    Cheap speaker cloth : where to buy

    There's a reject/clearance warehouse near my place that stocks a variety of fabrics, one of which I was very drawn to and have been using on my acoustic panels. It has a similar openness/breathability in the weave to hessian, but softer and more interesting in my opinion. If there's anything I could change about it, maybe I'd have preferred something a bit lighter in colour, and a bit more contrast in the contrast stitching. Cost $6 a meter, and is about 2.6m wide if I remember correctly (comes folded on the roll). They didn't have much on the roll left after I left though, which is a bit concerning because I might need more myself! Unfortunately I didn't apply it as straight as I could have.. if you're going for a fabric that would noticeably be affected by waviness, I probably couldn't recommend the "pull on one side then staple, go to opposite side then staple, so on" tactic that so many YouTube videos recommend. I found that it's more consistent if you just do the one side in full, then go to the opposite side.
  10. Great write up, thanks! I have the 12" HPD, I wonder if this'll be applicable when the day comes
  11. Thanks Gradenko. I've made quite a number of cuts to my batts in the past (maybe 16?) using just a hand saw, and it took about 10 minutes each time, not to mention the heap of fluff it produces for each cut: I still have a few fresh batts that I may cut up in the future, so this is good to know. Looks like Bunnings also stocks them for about $35: https://www.bunnings.com.au/bahco-550mm-insulation-hand-saw_p5710254

    Impedance mismatching

    Thanks everyone, much appreciated 👍
  14. Just a quick question, I couldn't really find a straight answer just by Googling. I just picked up a pair of Leak Sandwiches (from a generous user here at SNA), and they are rated at 15 ohms. I currently have a NAD C350, which is rated 60w at 8 ohms. Will this combination be a problem? Should I not even try? Maybe just make sure I don't put the volume very high? I heard that having a speaker impedance lower than the amplifier's impedance may cause the amplifier to run a little hot (drawing a higher current), but I'm not knowledgeable enough to make the conclusion that the opposite will have the opposite effect (having a higher speaker impedance produces less heat than having matched impedances). Any input is much appreciated, thanks.
