  1. Just to throw an example of OLED image burn, I came across this listing on gumtree You can clearly see the Dolby logo burnt into the screen on image 2: https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/baulkham-hills/tvs/lg-oled55e7t-55-inch-oled-tv-factory-seconds/1189445368 However, I would guess this was used as a demo somewhere and probably had that logo on screen for days at a time. I'm in the process of deciding on a new TV and the PQ on OLED is just so much better than most LED LCD's it really is hard to go past. Plus, I had no issues with my Plasma TV over 7years and screen burn was used back then (2007) as a fear to help sell LCD TV's.

Diatone SS-22F https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/vintage-speakers/153029503283?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D20140106155344%26meid%3D0ae999083b1f4adf8430134c2ef3e916%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D6%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D173326387637%26itm%3D153029503283&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851 $99 starting price or $380 BIN. http://audio-database.com/MITSUBISHI-DIATONE/diatonesp/ss-22f-e.html I think 26,000Yen would have been quite a lot back in 1976 when these were first released.

  6. I'll grab these. Apparently perfect for bringing back a pair of Aaron Ats-2's to life.
  7. I have two pairs of ATS2's - the ones with the gunge the same as you have pictured work perfectly, the ones that look as new are stuffed. I am sure the tweeters did have some form of coating from the factory, I recall it was mentioned in one of the Hifi mag reviews but these don't seem to be on what's left of the website anymore. http://www.aaronhifi.com.au/resources/index.php
  8. SEVDALIZA - HUMAN Using headphones it sounds like she is singing from behind you. The clip is a bit risque for those watching at work.
  9. Shame to hear, I really like this era of Akai and think they are worth repairing. Is it possible to get access to the underside to see how the soldering looks on the main boards? As far as qualified repairer, on this forum there is @Zaphod Beeblebrox he is in southern Sydney - http://www.rageaudio.com.au/index.php?p=1_3 There are quite a few other knowledgeable people though so they might be able to assist in diagnosing the problem.
  10. Interesting pair of Richters " I have researched and also asked our Chief Audio engineer of the last 20 years and no one seems to be able to identify those speakers. All we can say is that they appear to be a Ralf Waters special (the founder of Richter) he was known for producing a small special limited number of products but there’s no records. Sorry I am not able to be of any more help than that. Regards Brian Richter Audio Pty Ltd" http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Richter-Speakers-3109/152255510793?_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20140106155344%26meid%3Dacf3ceedd391476cb0e0e210b4347502%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D4%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D201676096078
  11. Price reduction to $400 neg. Needing to move these along
  12. The cabinets measure: Width: 20cm Depth: 26cm Height: 85cm They do come with spikes, I'm not sure if they are original but they are screw in type. There is some slight markings on the woofers, however not affecting the sound quality and really only visible up close or in flash photos.
  13. Item: Legend Acoustics Kama Series 1 Location: West Ryde, NSW Price: $450 Updated price to move these along $400 neg Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: Read below Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD Extra Info: These Legend Acoustics Kama Series 1’s are a great chance to experience the Legends’ signature sound. These are one of the early series as denoted by a serial number of 216. Having checked with the designer Dr Rod Crawford (of Linn fame) the crossovers are designed using “polyprop capacitors & air-cored inductors that should go on foreverâ€. There is some light scratches on the beautiful cabinets and some spotting on the logo’s, however this is only visible up close. Exceptionally clear and detailed, the stereo imaging and vast sound stage these are able to create even in quite a small compromised space is amazing. My reason for sale is that as fantastic as these speakers are, they don’t suit my preferred styles of music. Norah Jones, Lana Del Rey, Eric Clapton, Kate Miller-heidke, Megan Washington and the small amount of classical style music I own all sounded the best I have ever heard. This is not my preferred styles of music which leans more toward electronic and modern rock. I would be able to transport these to the Central Coast, NSW if that helps anyone.
  14. After selling my big Akai I put this little Rotel integrated that I have owned since new back into my system. I noticed some crackling on the tone controls and also the input selector, so a little bit of Deoxit was required. Classic 90s face Lid off, and look at all that room to move! I didn't check the bias because I don't have a multimeter at this time, but it is easy enough: TP1 (+), TP3(-) then the well labelled bias adjust to 4mV. Repeat for TP4(-) and TP2(+) and done. Nice large spacing, made it much easier to get the straw into the pots Came up a treat and the small amount of static is now gone. I did notice this thread on the RA-04 looks like the internals have changed very little over the years
