  1. It wasn't to be! I ordered (and payed for) the Q75 3 weeks ago and still hadn't heard a peep. Sent them Ebay messages (no response) and phoned a couple of times. They just kept telling me fibs like "we'll be sending it later today". This morning I asked for a refund and got confirmation within an hour from Paypal. I'm guessing they sold me something before they had the stock. This place has 4 bricks and mortar stores around Brisbane as well as their Ebay store. Hopeless customer service. Oh well, the Sony is still chugging along.
  2. I'm using my 55 inch OLED as a PC monitor so I'm guessing I'm sitting close enough! 😁
  3. No I haven't. The colour to me looks looks perfect so I don't wan't to mess with it. The problem I had was the effect created with motion smoothing. Thanks for your suggestion though. 😃
  4. I have turned off "Intelligent Frame Creation" and the picture looks a lot more cinematic. Thanks for that. Of course the cost is less smooth motion. I'll have a play and try and strike a balance.
  5. I have recently bought an OLED TV and a 4K Bluray player, both Panasonic. I'm impressed by the stunning clarity of the moving images I'm not sure it adds to my viewing pleasure. There is a certain "quality" to the image which I find un-cinematic. Perhaps it just looks too realistic. A bit like footage shot on a very good home video camera. I know I'll just have to get used to it but I'm just wondering what others think.
  6. Giving the Node a static IP would be the first thing to try as there is no cost and it's not very difficult. I don't know which exact router you have but there is a very good unofficial manual to a Telstra router here. https://drive.google.com/file/d/19mXdm_iOUgUrVrZmERxCTN6qzr4pF0x2/view Topic 8 "Address Reservation" shows you exactly how to do it.
  7. It's probably an inconvenient truth, but I think the culprit is your cheap and nasty Telstra router. Replacing it with something better may solve your problem. You could also try giving the Bluesound a static I.P. address. Might help.
  8. Yes I would have preferred an OLED but unfortunately last years models have mostly sold out and they're asking around the 4K mark for 65 inch models at the moment. I have ordered the Samsung. I'm sure I'll be happy with it.
  9. My 5 year old Sony TV is dying. I'm thinking of replacing it with a 65 inch Samsung Q75R which I could get for $3085 plus delivery. Can anyone think of anything better for around $3000?
  10. 6-8 weeks dispatch! Not really an official stockist. I'm sure anyone could source one much more quickly and probably cheaper by doing a quick Google search.
  11. Instead of using paper tabs you can cut up a previous glue peeling into strips and use them instead. Works for me!
  12. Tidal says it all really. For new users only. As an ex-user I could get 90 days for $1.99.
  13. Picture quality aside, how do you find the user interface and also how it handles streaming services? I was considering the 65" A8F but then I read a lacklustre review online. https://www.theverge.com/2018/11/2/17970022/sony-a8f-tv-review-oled-hdr-specs-features-price
  14. I don't know about the Da Vinci but in the brochure for the Concept MC cartridge it states that the diamond should last for 8000 hours if properly adjusted, which I thought sounded pretty good.
