  1. Not just easily but drove the yammies amazingly well. There was a few of us here that loved Hugh's combo of ns1000s and Audions.
  2. Not in ADL unfortunately. There were a few things I thought would work in my new Reno from them.
  3. We haven't actually tried the 1400 Hugh. I actually would like to, now that I understand how your speakers respond to these other known amps.... It must must MUST be with the 25 though and now that both have been fixed I am guessing that I still might be the only person to gain from the experience!
  4. There was alot of uncompromising R&D in these things and someone is getting alot for the money if they buy these. Seeing as these amps work well with them, I'd suggest giving Unc a decent offer for the amps too while you are at it.
  5. Sounds like an ECU mod. People tend not to advertise the fact when selling/trading but a good reflash shouldnt really scare anyone off unless the original driver had no mechanical sympathy.
  6. My wife just got a job with a 150 km return trip on rural roads each day which honestly is just perfect for a 3....heck even the bmw i3 120Ah would have done the trick. My problem is along with the excesses of ICE, we also tow a caravan occasionally and it would have meant me swapping the M135 for a tow vehicle of sorts....not happening. Tesla have their SA Headquarters 2 minutes from here and I see the occasional service test drive of Tesla X. The towing capacity is there with that one, but just not the range whilst towing. Im guessing its just a matter of time before Tesla release a Caravan with just enough battery to offset the range loss by towing it. Could probably then have a proper 15 Amp coffee machine in it whilst free camping!
  7. I've never run out of brakes in mine. I wonder if the replacement cost of the original discs make the shift to after market worthwhile. I'm approaching 60,000km in mine and probably due for front discs and pads. Do you know what prompted the front brake upgrade on the one you drove? Also, A cat/resonator delete is usually accompanied by an ECU piggy back or reflash - plenty fun there to be had..
  8. That's interesting. I preferred the PSS over the Ps4. I've still got 4mm on my ps4... Probably too late to swap with you My wheels aren't in the best of condition either so if you find a whole rim/tyre set of Ps4 somewhere.... Or the 19s in Ps4S somewhere, I'd consider buying your oem 18pss from you lock stock and barrel.
  9. Yep. I agree. In at Adelaide motors typing this as we speak. A red 140 available with 3000km for 50k. Other priorities at the moment so will have to keep the m135i. As a result, I did just buy a service contract until 2025 for 700 bucks though... Bargain.
  10. More recent than my last 'dear diary' post. I sent off my amp and pre to Ron from winovate. A few simple upgrades to the pre and a few new trannys in the 2nd module of the amp, a resetting of bias and a couple of other preventative maintenance measures and the system now surprises me with its transient response, bass level/tightness, and sound stage focus more to my expectation. It was one of the biggest improvements I'd had in a long time.. I haven't gone searching for big valves since the Me25 mod and 1400 tidy-up. Due to major Reno's, the only other thing is the implementation of a singxer SU1 usb spdif converter/clock .. Much smoother and recognisable vocals which I just put down to the fact that the usb receiver in the Ayon is not its best attribute.
  11. I was there Grant but didn't recognise you! Most of the philosophies that Jack discussed were developed by Dunlavy before Jack had even joined Duntech but it was interesting to hear that Jack implemented a much better data acquisition system just before Dunlavy left. Apparently, the ability to develop loudspeakers was greatly enhanced as a result. With the electrical/mechanical modelling and measurement tools available to speaker manufacturers these days, I wonder if it is easier to get a cheaper speaker that can reproduce a 1kHz square wave?
  12. I'm a bit confused by what you are trying to do now. This, trust me, is likely my fault I was thinking the main thing was that you were tyring to get to get Deeper to play from your Deezer account into your Ayon and out through your Hifi. In a way, Michael from Ayon is right. You just need a network player (the cheapest I can think of is the squeezebox touch given you know how to use one in your shed) . I actually have a Squeezebox Duet Receiver doing absolutely nothing if you want to borrow it while you wait for a cheap SBT to come up. Of course there are many many options, but I've gathered you want to just try before you commit. Is that right? Also, someone mentioned drivers. Don't look at this as an impediment. Most things will 'just work'. Plug a laptop in via a long USB cable, and you'll see what I mean. If you get stuck, even a generic driver called "ASIO4all" will get it running. Improvements to SQ can start from there.
  13. Welcome Bill. I was just telling s friend yesterday that we need to get our hands on a minidisc player. There is alot of old band history waiting to be exhumed and converted to hdd.
  14. This beast sounds like a roller lifter big block Hemi lifting the front wheels from 1st to 2nd gear.
  15. If you have the logitech media centre environment (meaning a server running the software) then all you have to do is bring that precious little box inside, and plug it into the Ayons spdif input. If inputs are full, there is a third party plugin called EDO (enhanced digital output) which turns the usb connector on the back of the SBT into a digital output. It just needs to be selected in the settings in the SBT menu... I'm away from home so can't detail it better than that but there should be bucket loads of info on the net. Then, I'm pretty sure if you go to the logitech media centre console (on the pc), go to advanced, then plugins, then find the deezer app under list of apps that you haven't installed yet. Once installed, your deezer account information settings can be entered in there somewhere. After a reboot or 2, you'll see the deezer app come up on third party app menu in the SBT screen. Select it and search from there. If you have an iPhone, use 'ipeng' app on your iPhone to be the remote control.
