    Which DAC ?

    S.M.S.L SU-8 - Has to be the Version 2
  3. Samsung just released their new 8K TV's so will wait until the 4K comes down in price
  4. Hi All, I was at JB the other day and seen some wonderful TV's on display. The salesman asked can i help you?, I said to him i'm just looking and maybe an upgrade soon but i mentioned that i'm waiting for both of my Panasonic TV's to die. He laughed and made me think all these new lovely TV's on display won't last 10 years. Both my Pana's just won't die..... Not even from a lighting strike... well that's a bit over the top but i just can't see the point of upgrading both perfectly working TV's. One was built from 2009 (37" LCD) & the other from 2011 (50" V10 Plasma). I'm worried when they need to be replaced that the new TV's will only last 4 years if i'm lucky. P.s I have 3 x Sonic 40" LED (E40W13AU) from employees with faults at my work. I've repaired one, the other had a faulty LED strip..(Bin) and the last one has a faulty main board. There not even 4 years old. DO NOT BUY THIS BRAND!!!!!!

    I can't get anymore reflections than this Huxi. If the reflections aren't up to your standards then go have a look at the reflections in the mirror [emoji3] [emoji6]

    Same goes for every brand releasing cheap unreliable gear in the 80's including Marantz.

    It was challenging to get the colour right but as in the pics it's very hard to see now. The case still requires another coat down the track. I'm so wrapped how it came up. The face was the worst I've ever seen before. I had to clean it using swipe first then use meguiars x 2.0 with a wet rag then WD40. 40+ years of grime. @pete_mac Now I know why a few Sansui techs in the states recommend WD40 on the faceplates. Bit weird but WOW how good does it come up on the final finish. I'll have to go over with it with some of my other black faced gear.

    I just couldn't stand the condition it was in so I decided to repair it then cleaning it [emoji28] I think it came up nicely. Huxi knows how bad it was. Ready now for a rebuild and an internal clean.

    Started to dismantle this dirty little triple eight. Not as bad as i had thought. Should come up nicely. Had to remove the factory blue tape around the front face frame as it was well and truly gone (pictured with it still attached). Looks like it had protected from scratching the frame.

    Now........... comparing to the old lady. This is just my opinion and I'm not trying to put the NRA down at all. It's been a while but what I do remember listening to my AU-111 and now having heard the 607NRA I know their differences. The AU-111 has a more WOW factor about it, bigger bottom end....., nicer presentation, does much much better with background sound effects, has a more open mid-range and top end. It also has an amazing 3D soundstage and imaging something the NRA didn't do as well as the 111. Maybe it's bigger brothers the 707 & 907 would rival or surpass the old lady. It's on the cards in the near future and it would be very interesting listening to both to see where Sansui was heading with the Alpha series.
