  1. Yeah sure, let me know when you want to come over and I'll set it up for you. I think plasma is considered dead technology now, LED/OLED is WAY more effiecient, weigh about 10 times less and have a much longer lifespan. JG
  2. You can't beat an OLED for the picture quality, literally nothing beats it. The blacks will never be as good on a Projector but the JVC comes as close as I can image you will get right now. Don't watch any sports sorry so can't comment on that, but watched John Wick on it last night and it was thouroughly enjoyable on a 110" screen. Motion is just as smooth on both IMO. Thanks JG
  3. A few interested parties but no hard offers on the table as of yet. JG
  4. I've ended up going down the projection route. If there had been a decent 88"ish 3D TV available.... But nope.
  5. I actually prefer the curve on it, and its actually not as prounoucned a curve as the samsungs were
  6. You are right, the build quality on these is fantastic.
  7. Item: Antelope Audio Zen Tour Thunderbolt and USB Portable Audio Interface Location: LNS Sydney Price: $1500 Item Condition: As new Reason for selling: Not using Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Havent used this in ages, may as well sell it with everything else! Currently selling for over $2500 in Australia Producing your own music has become the contemporary equivalent of writing poetry. Current technologies have made sound recording as easy as grabbing a pen and pouring your feelings on paper. However, unlike the solitude writing requires,music creation is usually a shared experience. A simple two or four-channel audio interface is no longer enough. A cool, creative jam with friends will require at least eight channels, packed in a portable interface that could easily fit in a backpack. Zen Tour borrows the powerful Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) from Antelope Audio’s top-selling pro studio devices. This game-changing technology provides the interface with massive parallel processing capabilities, thus the lowest latency levels on the market. Antelope audio's latest interfaces all feature a new breed of hardware-based audio effects. Key features: 8 x analog outs, 2 x headphone and 2 x reamp outs 2 x ADAT (up to 16CH) 1 x S/PDIF Up to 192kHz sample rate Over 40 + FPGA FX plug in effects, including 5 x new compressors. All features controllable via its high res touch screen Control the Zen Tour from multiple computers Control the Zen Tour remotely. Check out the newly available iOS and Android apps!

  8. Item: CHORD Indigo Plus, 1.0m pair XLR Interconnects Location: LNS Sydney Price: $1,100 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Selling components so don't need the cables Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I should still have the box for these however a quick look in the attic didn't turn anything up. Will keep looking. Described by What HIFI? as "Dazzling clarity across the entire frequency range". "The Chord Indigo Plus is a truly revealing cable that sets new standards for signal transmission across an extremely wide bandwidth". Details This cable can dramatically improve the sound of your system. Almost any CD player, phono stage or pre/power amplifier combination willl benefit enormously. The shielding system is the most complex we have used, resulting in a huge reduction of low-level noise. The sound is completely transparent and seriously dynamic, but it is the way all of these abilities are brought together that makes the Indigo Plus such a superb cable. The Indigo Plus will not only amaze you with the sheer amount of information it can carry, it will present it to you in a beautifully coherent and involving manner. What is it? The Signature was Chord's top of the range interconnect until the release of the Indigo. Chord know how important shielding is to audio cables and the Signature had one of the most advanced shielding systems available. The most striking feature of the Chord Indigo Plus is the unique vibration damping, precision machined acrylic plug surrounds. That something seemingly simple as a plug surround can have such a profound effect on the overall performance of the cable it is fitted to is genuinely surprising. By damping vibration and resonance, the acrylic plug surround lowers the noise floor of the system to which it is fitted. Collect from 2065 or will express post Australia wide for wide $20.00.

I'm only selling this as I don't want to risk it doing a long haul move. This is the last LG OLED model to have 3D, and the 3D is truly amazing!

  11. Item: Denon DVD-3910 SACD & DVD player in black Location: LNS Sydney Price: $250 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Selling my SC-LX90 which uses DSD iLink connection so now I won't need this. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: $2000 new, was flagship in 2005. Still works flawlessless and has Denon-Link 2nd Edition. I actually sold my original 3910 some time ago and then realised I could have been using the iLink input to connect the 3910 for SACD playback (DOH!), See I eventually found another one and yep, native DSD from the DVD-3910 into the SC-LX90. I think the SC-LX90 would have been one of the last high-end HT Amps with iLInk. The special thing about this player that I also didn't know at the time is that it plays back SACD-Rs flawlessly. So anybody that has backed up their SACD collection to ISOs can burn them to a DVD-R and play them back on this unit. It's only becuase I am selling the SC-LX90 that I am selling my new amp will only take DSD over HDMI which this can't do.

  13. Item: Meitner MA-1 DAC mk1 in Silver Location: LNS Sydney Price: $2750 Item Condition: As new Reason for selling: Downsizing Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I purchased this new in 2014 from Warwick (Pure Music Group) and it's been on my hifi rack ever since. However downsizing and moving to a single room, few boxes as possible type setup, so now this has to go. As I'm sure you already know, this is a highly regarded DAC, it does sound absolutely fantastic. Plays DSD natively and 24-bit/192Khz audio over the USB input. Still have the original box and remote. I had this partnered with a audio PC (cutdown Windows build with very little running except JRiver) which I will also be selling. Photos:
