  1. Hmm TV is a dinosaur, no help there. I've got an optical switcher, but now with another HDMI source I need an HDMI Switcher on top of it - so just trying to suss out whether there is an all in one device that will do the job (and cut down on all remotes..) Wonder if this would work? https://www.radioparts.com.au/product/64510380/hdmi4s18g-4-way-18gbps-hdmi-switcher-audio-extraction-hdmi2.0-hdr#.XF-tDGnZX3A
  2. Hi, So basically I have a setup as per the diagram below, and need a device to switch between sources. Does something like this exist? I guess it's kind of like a receiver without the amp. Any help greatly appreciated.
  3. Preference is for local pickup at this stage, but if there aren't any nibbles it's all yours. I'll keep you posted
  4. Item: Bluesound Node 1 (White) Location: St Kilda East Price: $250 Item Condition: Great Reason for selling: No Longer Required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: Great little streamer. Not much else to say, abundance of info online. https://www.whathifi.com/bluesound/node/review Pictures:
  5. Item: Yamaha NS-690 with Original Boxes Location: Melbourne Price: $850 800 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Moved house - no longer required Payment Method: Pickup preferred - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: A pair of Yamaha NS-690's in amazing condition with the original boxes, which are probably even rarer than the speakers. The custom built speaker stands are also included. These have the cloth surrounds, which seem to last indefinitely. Beautiful sounding of course.. Regretful sale, but no room for them anymore since moving house. Link to original post: Pictures:

The custom built speaker stands are also included. These have the cloth surrounds, which seem to last indefinitely. Certainly no sign of any issue. Beautiful sounding of course..

  7. I was wondering if anyone had some tips for adjustable feet that would fit on a Thorens TD-125 without too much hassle? It has a suspended subchassis, so not too concerned about isolation, would just like to get it level (and get rid of the cardboard I'm propping it up with). Thank in advance!
  8. So I have three sources that output their signal through an optical cable (Bluesound node 1, TV and PlayStation). I'd like to run them all through my DAC (Eastern Electric Minimax), which only has one optical input. Just wondered what the best solution is here? Is an optical switcher the go? If anyone can recommend a solution that will minimise any loss in sound quality that'd be much appreciated. Cheers, Jack
  9. So a quick update: Attila had them diagnosed and fixed within a week. It turned out the source of the rattling was that the coil had overheated and became slightly misshaped (as a few in this thread suspected). He was able to re-shape it somehow without needing to re-cone. Although he did say that rewinding them isn't a problem should they ever need to be which is great to know (and might be handy info for anyone with similar problems who thought theirs were unsalvageable!). So a very happy ending. Glad to have them firing again. Attila was excellent to deal with - super nice and honest. Extremely reasonably priced as well. Couldn't recommend him more highly!
  10. Likewise, such a nice guy and a huge help when I was first getting into turntables not long ago - very generous and patient with explaining things. I was going to give him a call just before I heard the sad news. Not to hijack the post (think this will be the same skillset anyway), but if anyone else knows of a local Melbourne guru for general turntable maintenance it'd be much appreciated.
  11. Thanks heaps for all the replies guys that's a great help. I just spoke to Attila. He seemed pretty confident he could fix it and that he's fixed a few before, so has given me some hope! Will keep report back once I get it to him for a diagnosis..
  12. Is re-coning not possible/advisable?
  13. Thanks for this - I tried turning the speaker upside down to test it 🙃. It did seem to reduce the noise, but not eliminate it completely. They have had the surrounds replaced before I bought them - they have a kind of faux-leather/cloth typed material which is quite thin as opposed to the original foam. The strange thing is if I pinch the surround taught on the right hand side the noise disappears completely. Hopefully this might mean they could be somehow re-adjusted to mimic/ or correct this.. taking a stab in the dark here as I really don't understand anything about speaker repair, ha.
