    Just thought I'd say I bought a power cable from Ray last week and the quality, price and service are excellent. Can't go wrong!
  2. SOLD: FS: Audia Flight Three CD Player

    As a former owner of one of these players, I rate it as the second best I've ever heard anywhere. (The best is the top of the range Audia Flight One - which I currently own). These are stunningly good machines and this one is ridiculously cheap. The new owner will not be disappointed!

    No that's making a statement! One speaker to rule them all!! The Plinius amps look like match boxes in comparison!
  4. Nice set up. What do you replace the Meridian with?
  5. AV receivers that give top 2ch stereo

    Raf, I recently updated my HT and stereo systems using a Halcro 5 channel amp as the power source. I run my Audia Flight CD player into an Accuphase preamp and then into the Halcro via XLR's for stereo duties, and have my modded Oppo running directly into the Halcro via RCA 's. The Halcro will power anything. You can use your Oppo to control HT via the digital volume control and this, for me, provides excellent results. If you do get a Halcro, all you'd need is a suitable preamp - happy hunting! Cheers, G
  6. I hope his hot water system never springs a leak...
  7. AFL 2017 - In memory of Nude

    Couldn't agree more. Port had a great draw, and an unbelievably good run with injuries and still only just got into the finals. We never defeated any top eight side and although the loss against WCE was very chancey, we shouldn't have been in that situation. Before the season started most scribes rated our squad as top four, but the 2016 season review showed we had the worst conversion rate, the worst efficiency rate and the least inside 50 marks. It didn't really change that much this season, and to be perfectly honest, I would not have retained Hinkley. The main reason for the slight improvement was Brendan Lade's emphasis on smarter movement and disposal going forward, and Charlie Dixon's efforts in the forward line - neither had much to do with Hinkley. And as for the reported salary of a million dollars a season - that can't be right.
  8. Rotel RC 995 preamp

    This item is made in China, however the construction and performance are rock solid.

Location: Adelaide - will post at buyer's expense Price: $399.00 (around $1,100 when new) Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: No longer required Payment Method: As agreed. Extra Info: I bought this excellent preamp last year as part of my journey into separates and was amazed at how much difference it made. I tried a couple of 'name' preamps costing up to eight times more and the Rotel was better.

The remote is a treat to use and very well looked after. Pictures: Coming..

    Port's disposal under pressure was again deplorable, especially from some experienced players. Winning the 'hard' ball is one thing but if you just give it away when you do get it, it's pointless. Port really needs to re-examine their focus and become a lot more composed under pressure. I questioned the decision to play young Marshall instead of Trengove, who would have been far more competitive and allowed Ryder to rest in the forward line, and also taken heat off Dixon. Not sure what Kochie's rant about some players not wanting to be there was about. I guess that might become clearer after the SANFL finals. West Coast did well enough and can certainly upset GWS next week, but after that...
  12. I have one of these and they're absolutely superb. Sound quality is pristine, pure, detailed and very natural. Other amps seem to sound fuzzy and veiled when you do back to back comparisons. Someone will end up with a great sounding amp at a very competitive price.
  13. If I didn't already have a pair of Proac's sitting in my bedroom I'd have these in a flash. Simply a great pair of speakers at an unbeatable price. These will surely not last the day... PS Fathers Day present - rationale for getting them?
  14. Do 'tracks' include The Dark Knight (Batman) soundtrack? Plenty of bass there..
