    FS (Mel) Sansui 331 receiver

    I have a one of these hooked up to some B&W 686s in the kitchen/family room and it sounds great. Mine also suffers from the intermittent 1ch problem but the occasional squirt of contact cleaner on the balance pot sorts it out. GLWTS

    Sony PS 5520 Turntable + Bonus 60 LPs

    Point taken. No I’ll intent, just a question I didn’t anticipate would be taken the wrong way. I suggested the TT to a friend earlier today and trying to work out if I quoted her the right price. Will PM if I get the go ahead.

    Am I going crazy or was the TT $175 before the 'bonus' was added?

    ah bugger. I'd still take it but seems like it's probably gone? I completely misunderstood the Jan 31 comment and thought the amp/sub box shown in pic wasn't included.
  6. My ~2010 P54V20A is still going strong. Best $100 I've ever spent (bought used with intermittent power issue, but has been fine for me). Because of the fault I've been expecting death at any moment but it refuses to go. I've got no need for 4K at the moment so I'm happy for it to hang around while I continue to watch OLED prices come down. the V20A replaced an older 42" plasma which I subsequently gave to my sister and is also still ticking along fine.

    Perfect for the kids room TV so I'll gladly take this if still available. PM on the way. edit...sorry, nevermind. Just noticed the comment about missing sub so guess it's kind of useless for me without an amp of some sort
  8. Not sure it makes me angry, but it does make me a little sad for the kids of today. I can't see them looking back in 20yrs time with anything close to the fondness I have for the good old days. 1996 has to be among the best in my books.. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triple_J_Hottest_100,_1996 Interesting to note that there's heaps more local acts these days though. <30 in 1996 v's 65 this year. I expected the opposite for some reason.

    SOLD: FS: Infinity RSM floorstanders

    I inherited pair of these from my grandpa years ago. Sadly that was back in share house uni days and they were very well used, and abused. Nice speaker from what I recall.
  10. Geez, I came to the classifieds looking for a cheap sub and see this. Must resist!! Some lateral thinking and I’m sure I could find a use and space for these but funds or something to trade is another matter.

    Apple TV

    Not with ours either (not digital cameras back in the dodgy days), but there's a few 'minutes after birth' pics the mrs isn't too fond of.
  12. better prices around at the moment: micro - $299, mini - $399 https://audioheaven.com.au/brands/aktimate-speakers/AKTIMATE-MINI-B but..IMO the best bet in Aktimate for OP would be the 'Blue' because of the optical input. $499 (ex demo), or $599 new https://www.scorptec.com.au/product/Speakers/2.0/51963-AktiBlu-BK/exdemo Something like the yamaha's would be tempting too for better wireless streaming than bluetooth (musiccast), but it's cheap and easy to add external device for streaming (eg. chromecast audio, airport express) to the aktimates.

    Apple TV

    I have ours set to randomly display our photo library as the screen saver. It's about the only time we actually look at the thousands of pics we've taken so is great, but can be a little embarrassing if it throws up a pic you don't want guests to see.

    Fetch TV Mighty question

    So did I, until I noticed another $1 charge recently. I’m not sure tbh.

    Fetch TV Mighty question

    No. Whether you buy your fetch outright or get though your ISP you need to sign up for it to work. But t's only $1/yr if you don't get any of the packages. It also needs an internet connection, even for FTA TV (you may be able to watch without internet but I think the guide and PVR functions don't work). Yep, and you also get access the 'movie box' which has a selection of 30 free movies at any one time. Not the latest releases but usually a few decent ones.
