  1. back to an AVR but the NAD t758 v3 is worth a look, good honest power for your LS50 and you can always upgrade to power amps later if you really need it. You will have unused amp channels but no big deal.
  2. Yes Margo, I will send you a message.

    Some Daft Questions - any ideas welcome

    A bit more technical but you could set up something like Volumio on an RPi with a DAC hat. It will play radio assuming there is a direct URL for RN. I am sure someone has worked out how to get it to boot direct to radio but you will find their app is very easy to use. Otherwise you could leave it on all the time as many do already. Otherwise I would look for streamers/tuner that allow for URL radio streams and with say a favourites/memory button that you could assign to the RN stream. Get an old mobile/ipad connected via headphone out to your amp and have the RN shortcut on the home screen?
  4. Item: Olympus OM-D E-M5 MkII + 14-150mm II Lens Location: Carlingford/Hills District Sydney Price: $900 or offer Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Not used except for one holiday, realise I am not into photography Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only - prefer someone to inspect if possible. Extra Info: Selling because this beauty needs to be used and appreciated by someone. In the right hands it can produce great photos. Purchased in June 2017 from Australian retailer with 2 year warranty. The lens was fitted in shop and I have not removed it since. The screen protector was fitted in shop and left as is. I cannot see any marks at all and it presents as new. It went on a family holiday/cruise to Iceland and Scandinavia for a few weeks and then back in the cupboard and barely used since (shutter count is 1978) On a recent trip to JB I played with all the cameras and still feel this is one of the most solid and beautiful cameras to hold and use. Comes with: Spare battery 32GB SD Card Aftermarket case Peak design strap - this is the best strap in my opinion and is very comfortable around the shoulder. Comes with spares for the strap. The glass protection filter was fitted to lens in store and I have never removed it. Cleaning kit - never opened as the camera never got used. Olympus original strap - never used. I found the lens a great all purpose holiday lens - of course you have many choices here. Flash shown comes with the camera, just fitted it to show here. Some Specs: 16.1 Megapixel Live MOS Sensor TruePic VII Image Processor 5-axis Image Stabilisation 3-inch 1.4 Million-dot Vari-angle Touchscreen 2.36 Million-Dot Electronic Viewfinder 40 Megapixel Hi-Res Shot Mode 77MBps Bit-Rate Full HD Video Recording Built-in WiFi for Instant Photo Sharing Includes Olympus M.Zuiko 14-150mm f4.0-5.6 II MFT Pictures:

    For me it’s only stereo on SBS on demand through Apple TV can someone confirm?
  6. No interest? It will present as new as a Christmas present for someone. This is a factory fitted cart which I have not touched.
  7. Item: Project Essential II Digital Turntable with OM5e Cart Location: Carlingford - Hills District Price: $250 for TT and cart Item Condition: Excellent. I estimate I may have played about 10 albums through so cart may not even be run in. Reason for selling: Not really doing vinyl Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only. PICK UP ONLY. I have the original box for the TT which I don't really want to repack. Extra Info: I had this connected directly via optical out to my Devialet Silver Phantoms when I had them. Was actually very surprised at how well it worked. You also have regular RCA connections via built in phono so might be handy for an office system with limited space or integrated amp without phono stages or connect straight to your DAC. Sales speak: For connecting via optical to soundbars and similar devices Great solution if only a digital input is available Easy set-up Belt drive with silicone belt and low vibration motor 8.6" aluminium tonearm with sapphire bearings Ortofon OM5e cartridge pre-mounted Built-in phono pre-amplifier with analogue and digital out Gold-plated RCA interconnect cable included Special turntable feet for effective decoupling High-gloss Piano Black finish Pictures: No marks. Only fingerprints and dust.

    It's on SBS this Sat night and SBS on demand.
  9. Yes it has optical out and a built in phono pre. I don’t think you can bypass the phono preamp.

  11. They might come with foam bungs, not sure.
  12. The Kef x300a have a good reputation
