  1. Purchased another Intel NUC. Still need to find out what the problem is with the other one.
  2. That's why I've been chasing up this info for Doug. Plus it would be handy to source the right stuff just in case my NAD 200 plays up.
  3. Thanks. I’ve also found the service manual for the NAD 300 Dolby Reciever and it seems the NAD 200 and 300 might share some key circuits and components. Now we need to find a source for the correct Japanese made main transistors. Seems there are some Chinese copies that are no good in the supply chain.
  4. Would someone please be able to help me out with the procedure to adjust the idle current on a NAD 200 stereo amplifier? The idle bias adjustment procedure doesn't seem to be covered in the schematics we have. maybe someone has the service manual for it.
  5. I started resurrecting old systems and getting components for new systems earlier this year. My NS-1000M speakers were intended to go on my vintage system but have ended up on my master bedroom system. I’ve ripped all of my CDs to FLAC and I’m using one Roon system as my digital source at home with a second one at work. I highly recommend Roon. The only downfall is the new links to other artists it reveals. The result of that is I’ve probably added more than 800 CDs to my collection so far this year. I have six systems at home and three at work. All can access the Roon digital music library, and then there’s support for reel to reel, cassette tape, CDs and LPs as well. Lots of older 70s and 80s gear mostly using the digital sources.
  6. G’day David, I’ve got a pair of Yamaha NS-1000m speakers in on of my systems. What system are you planing to put together? Best regards, Lloyd Borrett.
  7. I've been having some dramas with my work Roon music system setup recently. You can read the full story at https://community.roonlabs.com/t/how-to-get-back-access-to-my-i7-nuc-based-rock/49255 As of now the problem is my Intel NUC7i7BNH NUC Kit running ROCK only stays active on the network for a minute or so after booting up. It's connected to a new Telstra/Netgear V7610 modem which uses an ADSL line. (Previously a Telstra/Netgear DEVG2020 modem was being used, but I changed to the new one in the hope that would be the fix.) This morning I reinstalled ROCK on the Intel NUC from scratch, but I can't get it to stay up long enough to finish setting it up. I'm hoping someone here with better networking knowledge that me, plus an understanding of the local Telstra/Netgear devices and connectivity, might have some ideas as to how I can resolve this. Any suggestions gratefully received.
  8. No. I’d Ike to hang on to it and hopefully find a way to get it running again. I’ve had it from new and really like it.
  9. I've recently managed to get my hands on a Wright Audio Developments AM Tuner. The transformer in it is dated August 1972. It's been cleaned up, checked out, and new RCA leads fitted. An aerial terminal block has been added onto the back so that aerial connection is easier than the DIN socket it was originally using. Doug Wood in Rye who was doing the service work for me was very skeptical at first and tried to talk me out of doing anything with it. But when he finished and hooked it up for testing he was amazed at how nice it sounded. It's a solid state device but with a rich, smooth valve sound. I still need to find a knob for the pot on the rear, then I'll post some better pics.
  10. The Yamaha M-45 power amp blew up one channel while being fixed and is now defunct. The Denon Stereo Power Amplifier POA-2800 was fixed by Doug Wood in Rye and has been running problem free for over a month now. I now also have a Denon DRM-700 Cassette Deck ready to be added to this system.
  11. I still think this is one of the best screens ever made. Mine is still going strong. Would love to find a 60 inch one.
  12. While I'd like to get my Teac C-2X Cassette deck going again at some point, I decided to look for alternative devices to use with my cassette collection. So now I have a NAD 6050C 2-Head Tape Deck to go with my NAD 3020 and 4020A setup in my home office. There's a Nakamichi ZX-7 3-Head Cassette Deck coming to replace the Teac C-2X on the vintage hi-fi setup. I expect to use this unit to transfer old cassette based albums I can't locate on CD to FLAC files at some point. A Denon DRM-700 3-Head Cassette Deck is coming to go on the Denon based system in the master bedroom. That should just about do it.
  13. I’ve never had a valve amp. Anyone have some suggestions?
  14. I have a Teac C-2X Cassette Deck that I'd like to get going again. It seems it needs the motors replaced, new idlers, plus rubbers. Does anyone know where I might be able to source suitable parts?
  15. I currently have the following NAD gear... NAD Model 200 Dolby Stereo Amplifier - 100W per channel with Dolby NR system. Vintage circa 1975. I've always really liked the sound of this amp. I purchased it 2nd hand in the early 1980s. The rest of my NAD gear was purchased this year... NAD Stereo Amplifier 3020 - Classic 20W per channel stereo amplifier. Vintage circa 1980. NAD AM/FM Stereo Tuner 4020A - Great sounding tuner. Vintage circa 1980. NAD Stereo Cassette Tape Deck 6050C - 2-head compact cassette deck. Vintage circa 1981. I'd like to find a suitable silver NAD CD player to go with this system. NAD 7020 AM/FM Stereo Receiver - 20W per channel. Vintage circa 1988. NAD Stereo Amplifier 3020e - Classic 20W per channel stereo amplifier. Vintage circa 1985. NAD AM/FM Stereo Tuner 4020A - Great sounding tuner. Vintage circa 1980.
