  1. ...should we also talk about step-up transformers to add to the confusion?
  2. I would drop Netflix if my Wife would let me. Much more interesting films on SBS On Demand for free.
  3. It's not my main system so I'm not really prepared to go through lots of hassle and expense to get it fixed. It's a shame as it looks way too nice to toss in the bin. I'm weighing up some alternatives. Modern amps have so many bells and whistles! I'm thinking an Onkyo TX-8270 (probably cheapest option), Bluesound Powernode 2i, or sell my floorstanding speakers (Tannoy XT8F) and get some active standmounts like the Acoustic Energy AE1 active or the KEF LS50 wireless. Too many options!
  4. This happened today after I swapped speakers. There is sound from the right channel but it's quite distorted. It does it from all sources and there is distortion whether it's output is through the speakers or headphones. I thought I had turned the amp off before I changed over the speakers but noticed afterwards that it was actually on. I probably bumped the power button. Is this worth fixing? Amp is probably 6 or 7 years old.
  5. This guy goes into some detail. Quite enlightening. https://www.mojo-audio.com/blog/computer-audio-misconceptions/
  6. Wouldn't the DAC take care of the timing and therefore be nothing to do with the cable or the physical connection between the cable and the DAC?
  7. I like the analogy that using expensive digital cables and expecting better audio is like using a more expensive printer cable and expecting an improvement in print quality. If it works, it works. I'll run for cover now.
  8. That USB input is so that you can connect a PC and use the amp's DAC. It's a type b socket and not designed for an ipad/iphone.
  9. I bought a Panasonic OLED tv from The Good Guys Ebay store which was delivered promptly from my local Good Guys store. The panel had some dead pixels. I contacted the local store and they wanted some photos of the dead pixels. A couple of days later they sent a brand new replacement tv and took the old one away. I was quite happy with that.
  10. +1 for Chromecast Audio - so simple to set up and works with Android phones and iPhones and sounds quite superb. For $59 it's a no-brainer IMO.
  11. Which pressing is it? If it's the A2/B2 pressing with the solid blue triangle on the label it's worth a darn side more than $34
