  1. Target Turntable with Bluetooth

    Neither do I for reasons I thought I had already stated... I think we have all provided many options here for the OP considering the price constraints, in fact offers of a free to collect Sherwood turntable have even been generously made... it's probably time for the OP to make some decisions about which direction he would like to take.

  2. Holden to Close

  3. Well in... great solution, simple and effective particularly when other methods are not working for people that are right near a stations transmitter. JSmith
  4. Holden to Close

    Today marks the end of an era... things change, but this one is a damn shame. So much history for people with their Holden vehicles... I'd imagine most in this thread have owned at least one Holden or have spent much time in family cars. I remember years of fun in many Holden models... some may consider this fun more dangerous than anything else... but I'm still here luckily. (bloody squashed pics...) JSmith
  5. Perils of focusing too much on gear

    Yep... BD-Audio/HFPA can be great. JSmith
  6. Perils of focusing too much on gear

    I know... I did. Seems to have ruffled a few feathers and I really don't know why. People use their gear for movies, pretty simple and straightforward comment I would have thought. The thread has had many tangents... this has been one of them. All good, enjoy your evening. JSmith
  7. Perils of focusing too much on gear

    Rantan, all I own is music playing gear... but I also use it for everything I listen to, which includes TV, movies and particularly music. JSmith
  8. Perils of focusing too much on gear

    It's about equipment, which must include HT... or it's a useless discussion about gear, IMO, ETTO. You seem to be implying it is inappropriate to discuss usage of peoples equipment which clearly includes HT usage. ... I said no such thing, in fact quite the reverse. I have been here for years before the merge, but would be nice for some of the newer members here to not feel denigrated due to their choices or opinions. JSmith
  9. Perils of focusing too much on gear

    No issue with what interests you mate or doesn't... but keep in mind Marc has merged Stereonet with DTV Forum and there are now even more members here that love their HT, some who focus on that only with their systems. Just because the thread drifted off into a music vs gear debate, that is not all the thread is about. I think in some ways it's a bit inappropriate to simply forget any discussion about what people actually use their systems for, understandably YMMV. JSmith
  10. Target Turntable with Bluetooth

    https://www.aussiehifi.com.au/products/rega-fono-mini-a2d-phono-preamplifier-dac?variant=45080255879 ... not at all, we're all here to assist mate. The written word can often be misinterpreted online... an "insult" is often just an Aussie sh!t stir without offence attached. JSmith
  11. Perils of focusing too much on gear

    I think you're forgetting people that like to use their system for film audio/HT... and music. JSmith
  12. Perils of focusing too much on gear

    Damn... that is very interesting. JSmith
  13. Perils of focusing too much on gear

    Exactly... I love listening to a record, but am well aware of the format's limitations compared to any digital medium that is not heavily compressed. To expect sonic perfection from a record is surely an exercise in futility, amazing equipment or not and potential mastering differences aside. JSmith
