    Make Eggie Great Again.



    I am a great believer in Eggy, he's:


    •  First and foremost a tremendous person.
    •  Going to make Stereonet into an amazing site.
    • He's record speaks for itself. Don't trust others telling you "No" or otherwise. Because there is a deep state against him.
    • What ever the current admins tell you, they are fake news.
    • If he's not voted in, bad things will happen to Stereonet.
    • Not only he's smart, he IS a tremendous leader.
    • He's on a winning streak.


    What else can I say, having met him myself, he's a really terrific guy.

    I'm not sure what you mean by this but it doesn't appear to be a necessary part of our process.

    You just need to click on the StereoNET AU account, from the login page at SN Asia (or UK).
    Then follow the prompts. 

    Thanks Marc, I've done that. Same incorrect password. Hence I used the private browsing session, in case of corrupted cache. No go. Sorry I wasn't clear. Here is my steps to replicate:


    1. open a new tab in chrome.

    2. go to site stereonet.asia

    3. Existing user? (top right)

    4. Click on "Stereonet AU Account"

    5. Continue as "ChupaChups"

    5.  Past my password from my password manager

    6. Error msg " Name or password incorrect..."


    Thanks muchly.

    It's not clear to me exactly what the problem you are having is, but I can confirm that AU accounts are successfully being used to link and sign up into both the UK and Asia sites at the moment.

    Okay, thanks @Marc. It doesn't recognise my password. I have verified my password. Signed into Stereonet  in au site via copy and paste in a private browser session.  But no luck in Asia site.


  5. Concur with @Monty. You don't get caught by the roaring forties weather. I once forgot to bring my sleeping mat with me in the highlands, sleet was coming down sideways. I won't forget how cold it was and this was during mid-summer. Bring good gear with you. If you're not comfortable, enjoyment is out of the window.

    After a good life, my ancient hiking tent has gone to the great campground in the sky.

    I'm looking for recommendations for a replacement, ideally with the following features:

    - roomy 2-person tent - big enough for backpacks inside or with a vestibule that's big enough for them

    - lightweight (under 2.5 kg or even 2kg if possible) but also able to withstand the weather (we love hiking in Tassie)

    - two door

    - ideally two vestibules


    I see things like Big Agnes and Mont recommended a lot but it's hard to know as the "best hiking tent" sites all seem to be thinly disguised adverts rather than independent reviews.


    Thanks in advance!


    Hi Trev,


    I use Mac Pac personally. Good brand and made in NZ, suitable for Tassie weather as a semi native Tasmanian myself (I assumed it is three season tent you're looking for). 




    Think it is within spec.

  7. I just tried the SSO (it is actually SSO btw?) with Asia site, it asked me to re-auth using my Stereonet Aus credential. using the cut n paste method from my password vault (verified with notepad)...all seems fine. But the auth part failed, it won't recognise my password under "Link Your Account". In saying this, I did update my password prior to re-signing to the Asia site. Now I must wait 15mins for the lockout period.

    Australian standard specs are 90m m link plus 5m tail at each end to give 100m total distance.  A certified cat 6 or cat 6A will manage these distances with no degradation in performance.  There are many many environments where these length limits are stretched to the max (eg schools and corporate environments) and these cables still pass compliance testing.  We often have video over cat (HdBaseT) runs that are 70 -90 m and as long as a high quality cable is used then we have no issues.  Not sure where the 55m length you state is derived from.  Can you be a kind soul and elaborate please as i am very interested where it is stated to be 55m. 

    eg   https://www.belden.com/blog/smart-building/whats-the-real-cat-6a-cable-distance-limit-and-why-does-it-matter

    As mentioned elsewhere, 10Gb network at 55m and I did get my source from wiki. For average home networks most will probably be on a Gigabit network,  with that in mind 100m theoretical limit is it, taking into account one should keep the max length at around 90-96 meters with various terminations in place.

    My question - are there differences you can see and hear re quality of network cables?  I figure I might as well put a good one in over a $10 one - if it exists. 


    The answer is no difference. As long the cable you are using is a certified Cat 6 or 5 cable. And it doesn't exceeds the maximum length specified by Ethernet standard. Cat 6. Cat is 55M and 100M for Cat5e.

  10. Not sure where OP is at regarding his pursuit of digital streaming Nirvana. Keep you setup simple - KISS - gives you less hassles if you're less technical incline with computer tech. If you can afford a good sounding end streamer all in one unit, go for it. I have not heard many good sound streamer in my travels. Probably the best I have heard is the dCS Bartok but that's way out of budget for most. Others have mentioned Auralic Aries G1 , which is closer to your budget.


    You have mentioned you do like you "analogue" sound. Also mentioned in this thread and more inline with your budget is the Denafrips family of R2R DAC. I've heard the Terminator  side by side to my 10k chip DAC. If I have to do over my digital setup again, the Terminator will be my pick and if money is not an issue the Bartok it is. @georgehifi will attest to this (with regards to R2R DAC for having an analogue sound). 


    If possible use your existing streamer/PC/Laptop USB out to a DAC of your desire. Try not to over complicate things. Good luck and have fun Clive. Post Covid, you can showcase your new digital setup and I will bring a bottle (or two) of red. :hiccup


    Have a peruse over couple of Utube links:

    Will playing Tidal through the Mac Mini also allow MQA unfolding? 
    My DAC won’t unfold MQA 

    You sure? https://www.bluesound.com/products/node/

High-end DAC technology built into every Bluesound Player allows the NODE 2i to decode and stream MQA files in all their lossless glory.

  13. Well, I just replaced my ISP router/wireless modem thingy with Ubiquiti systems. The new systems consist of Edge Router, PoE switch and a wireless ap (access point).  My NBN lead point sits in my garage and currently where the wireless ac is. We get somewhere between 3 to 4 bars on our tablets and Macbook pro up on the third flood townhouse - that is passing two concrete walls. To give you an idea, here is an Iphone 7 wireless signal strength:




    Setting up is not that hard for the wireless AC (just set network name/pw). But the Edge Router does take some Googling, thanks to our funcky NBN systems mandated by Malcom :)  But once setup, you don't ever need to touch it. Ubiquiti stuff is build solid for mid to large size networks. In the future I planned to integrate a couple of PoE security cams. The entire systems allow me to scale up and have reliability which my ISP router couldn't provide.
