  1. @Tweaky Just wondering what movie is the spaceship shot from? I want to see what it looks like on my TV.
  2. This is a bargain, get it modded by Joe Rasmussen (JLTI) which will transform it into a really great sounding amp for the money.

    Pass Labs XA25 Power amp

    @scumbag Great review, very thorough. As a very happy XA30.8 owner I was wondering what the difference was between them. The XA30.8 has some sort of hold over me which I can't explain, I just enjoy the amp. I think it is possibly because I used to have valve amps and their are similar characteristics. I agree with your comment of running in of PL amps before critical listening. This is critical, my XA30.8 changed dramatically after running in. Likewise letting the amp warm up (a minimum of 1 hour IMO) has a significant effect.

    Help with getting back into cycling

    @Juicester It was pretty easy, car parked in the bike lane (legally), I moved into the traffic, steep downhill and cars were slowing, then they suddenly stopped and I hit the brakes - I was too close, bumped the guys car in front and flew over the handle bars. Luckily landed on the road and not an edge of his car.

    Help with getting back into cycling

    And there are cyclists like me who misjudge the traffic (there's a bit more to it) and rode into the rear of a car - definitely not the car drivers fault. Luckily only a broken arm and major embarrassment 😊
  6. I agree, my LG is very quiet. Its 1 year old and still the same as first day I got it.

    Help with getting back into cycling

    I can't advise on which style of bike, but definitely get one fitted. I ride a mountain bike and was shocked at the difference when I had one fitted. The other interesting thing to me was how the slightly different geometry of brands affected my comfort level. Even small amounts of cycling is enjoyable, have fun.

    Comprehensive image retention over 24wks

    I have had my Panasonic plasma for about 7 years and definitely no image retention.
  9. @dbastin I have a single story house, hardwood floorboards on piers. My floorboards are only 2" wide. With audio tweaks I always try to not expect too much improvement, the Gaia exceeded my expectation. In my situation this was equivalent to a component upgrade.
  10. I thought it was an awesome system if you want a complete package. The Whatmough speakers and sub would be worth the money alone. My Panasonic plasma is 7 years old and picture is still great. GLWTS
  11. @cafe67 my speakers weigh 45kg each so the Gaia 2 were perfect. I have timber floors.
  12. @rodders3 A couple of items I have purchased as follows: 2012 Sydney show : bought a Consonance amplifier straight after the show and when funds permitted I bought a pair of Osborn Epitome reference towers, these were after listening to Greg Osborn room at the show. 2018: I also purchased the Gaia II after listening to the demo at the show in Melbourne. Like yourself I have been very impressed and surprised at the improvement. Luckily mine were the standard M6 thread so I didn't have any issues fitting them.

    Clock Radio Recommendations

    I have had a Ruark for a couple of years and it is a great product, easy to use and reliable.
  14. @tripitaka thanks for the correction, I couldn't remember the exact details. I agree the speakers sounded great.
