  1. Huge dynamics, detail and slam without any hint of grain or harshness. I don't know why more people don't own these Amps. (actually I do) I was personally reluctant to try one myself until one came up in the classifieds (4bsst2) to match with my 803D2. Not a match that is typical (think McIntosh) but yeh, it stayed and the other amps promptly left. A few GTG's later and all the guests agreed. Hence why I thought it would be great for the evil one to give one a try. Couldn't hurt right? And now, he's the proud owner of a 4b3 the lucky bugger. Clive's system sounds brilliant, he is one very happy man.
  2. It's actually the complete lack of a suitable space to accommodate a system 😭
  3. Still systemless I'm afraid. Blame the terrible Perth property market 🙄
  4. Al, 10kms is no easy feat. Keep up the good work 👍
  5. I'd would say the scene is pretty good over in WA. It's good here in Vic as well
  6. Room is coming along nicely there Dave
  7. Oats are an excellent kick off to the day, low GI (as long as you are not pilling on the sugar, honey etc) My day starts with 2 coffee's (1 habit I will never be able to shake off) with low fat (not skim) milk and no sugar, bowl of oats (with water, not milk) with a heaped scoop of protein powder (WPC). Awesome result on the run.
  8. IMO ditch the wrap and just stick with the wheat roll. The wraps are still packed with empty calories, Nothing wrong with breads as long as they are wholemeal. Helga's do a cracker of a loaf Look for the high protein 5 seeds, simply awesome. Also try to stay away from the cured meats, try and go for things like grilled chicken (not crumbed). I know this thread started as a light easing into this stuff so the more you dig it gets very complex. It's no wonder it is so hard to navigate our way through food choices now. Hardly anything pre prepared is suitable for a healthy lifestyle. Also the cleaner you eat typically the less calorie dense the food is, which is a good thing. Your right Al about energy in energy out. But once you start to loose alot of weight macros become more important, you want to loose body fat without loosing muscle.
  9. I should also add. For me, protein and fat were targets with carbs variable depending on how much exercising I had done or planned to do. For Al, if your goal is to cut down on carbs. The easiest way to make a start is to cut out added sugar (especially in hot drinks) and white bread and white rice.
  10. Yep, agree with MyFitnessPal needs a big commitment to accurately track. But again the scan feature makes adding food very quick. Below is a screenshot of the macros I was using. I no longer track my food intake as I now have my nutrition built into my day to day life. And totally agree on eating out, it's very hard to find suitable food and I too have just settled for a Nando's grilled chicken salad. I am not doing ketosis (again that diet word thingy), far to difficult for most to commit to and I still want to enjoy life with friends and family ie: eating out, bbqing, having a drink etc. My food day to day still hits these macros as I occasionally log the odd to day to make sure I'm still in check. Another tip for Al, A lot of calorie calculator tools way over estimate the additional calories for activity levels. Best to use them in putting in low as the activity settings.
  11. Well done Al, It always pleases me when I read stories like this. I used to use MyFitnessPal to track my nutrition. I much prefer to use the term nutrition rather than diet. To me diets are temporary, too restrictive to fit into an everyday lifestyle where as a well thought out nutrition plan will become a habit that you can follow everyday. Another tip is more often that not the kj estimated for exercise is overstated, which can lead you into thinking you need to increase your intake to compensate for kj burned. Once you manage to kj per day another thing would be to look at your macro intake. I see a lot of fat and carbs with little protein. There are many resources for estimating an ideal macro intake depending on your goals. Again, keep up the good work 👍
  12. Hi, are you sure they're 702's? They look a lot like CM10S2...... These are the 702 Is it possible you auditioned the 702 instore and they gave you CM10s instead? Although I'm not sure quite how different they would sound anyhow
