  1. The 'Hifi gear in movies' thread....

    Marantz turntable, McIntosh electronics and Ohm Walsh 4 speakers... from the home of Harry Bosch in the Bosch detective web series from 2014. JSmith
  2. The 'Hifi gear in movies' thread....

    Yes there has been discussion in the past on other audio forums about what they might be... I always notice them when I watch this show. It's from The IT Crowd from the BBC, 2006... hence Krebetman's comment. JSmith
  3. ... you won't be disappointed, now well priced, excellent panel after calibration and not too bad out of the box either. JSmith
  4. The 'Hifi gear in movies' thread....

    ... anyone know what this is from? Sorry, a TV show, not film. JSmith
  5. Is there a cassette tape resurgence?

    Yeah I do vaguely remember some old cars with something similar to these; This is what I remember more; JSmith
  6. Is there a cassette tape resurgence?

    ... well if we're going back further, what about 8-track tapes? Disadvantages compared to standard compact cassette; - The tape speed was half that of Stereo 8, producing theoretically lower sound quality - The tape needed turning over after one side of playing was finished (until late in the lifecycle of the compact cassette, when 'auto-reverse' mechanisms became more popular) - It required greater mechanical complexity of the player ... although compact cassettes had advantages over 8-track too, sound quality was not one of them.

  7. Is there a cassette tape resurgence?

    These are the only tapes that are worth considering from a audio quality perspective... JSmith
  8. AI: yes but no, but....

  9. Love Indian food and some Mexican food... but that sounds horrible! JSmith
  10. I was surprised to see that Martin Logan, Q-Acoustics, Tannoy, Yamaha and others were not listed as having a room at the show... it would be great to see the number of exhibitors continue to increase, including HT centric companies. JSmith
  11. NBN recommendation

    @palexsia Leaptel or My Republic... check reviews on them, mostly positive. JSmith
  12. The cost of nbn

    Also should keep in mind the over the top prices charged by NBN Co.; http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-08-01/telcos-cry-foul-over-controversial-nbn-charge-for-bandwidth/8762404 So because the original FTTP NBN project was gutted, we are all now facing higher charges and RSP's are trying to balance their costs with profit margins... and they are very slim. Great to know our tax dollars basically paid for this TFU... now NBN Co. owns a lower value network that has higher access charges. JSmith
  13. Audio myths and misconceptions

    Exactly... I don't understand how you can disagree with entire industries and standards... me thinks you have an agenda. JSmith
