  1. Hey, Just my 2 cents. I upgraded to a Sony x93d 55" and an Xbox One S for 4k movie watching. In the main, its been great. I would say that one in 3 or one in 4 UHD discs blow me away. I would say that I do regret getting the Edge Lit LED, as the blooming on my set is quite noticeable. If i was go to again, I would spend the extra dosh and get OLED. When its good its fantastic but its early days yet. I believe that special effects heavy movies have the CGI done in HiDef (1080p) rather than Ultra High Def, so many of the discs are upscaled rather than true remasters. Its worth doing research before you buy a UHD disc and waiting for the sales. But i would say that when it does work...e.g. John Wick 2, its an awesome experience. I would also say that as indicated above, the upscaling can be a big plus. Apart from the blooming with my Edge Lit, the only other thing I don't like is the speed of Android TV. Darn slow. Neil

  3. It might have well been the pre. I did get a loaner of an SIACD for a while and that was totally epic. Ruined me completely actually!
  4. Item: Rotel 1080B 200W Power Amplifier Location: Altona, 3018 Price: $350 Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: Not using Payment Method: Pickup - Cash. Extra Info: Pick up only. Hi folks I bought this power amplifier on this forum a couple of years ago and never really got around to using it. Am more than happy to part ways with it. I used it a few times with my ATC's but it didn't appear to represent that much of a difference from just using my 90W Yamaha Receiver. Priced for a quick sale. http://www.stereophile.com/solidpoweramps/608/#PfRJSHg6jt8lzzpZ.97 Pictures:
  5. Late reply - currently have the SIACD on loan from a friend. Paired with ATC passive SCM40 floorstanders. I haven't tested any other amp/cd components in this price range but the sound appears to be head and shoulders above the other amps I've used. Plugged it in last night & sound was so good it made me pull out old CDs and see what they sounded like. Result was not always great, given the transparency (more to do with the recording), but when it was good, it was seriously toe-tapping good.
  6. Topic can be closed now. Fwiw - I ended up using Global Antennas. V happy with service & outcome.
  7. Hi there - can anyone recommend someone in the Altona area to repair an analog antenna? The cable to the antenna itself needs to be reconnected it appears. I had a bloke come out to take a look but said the antenna was too old & offered to sell me a new one, which I declined. Jims Antennas are fully booked so need another option. Any ideas?

  9. A slice of Aussie audio history, glwts. Tell me... what ATCs you aiming for? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Hi - let me know if the sale doesn't progress on the SR6006
  11. Thumbs up from a fellow ATC owner. They look stunning. GLWTS.
  12. Ps - the poster should try out some watch forums if he/she wants to see extremes. Ps - right now I'm listening to Dido on my beautiful ATC SCM40s. Reddit's so last year anyway... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. There's extremes in every interest/passion/hobby, there's as much talk about good value speakers second hand as anything else. I've always been treated well here, even as a relative newbie. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
