  1. Atom based Music Server

    it's 414mb on the usb stick which is 1/2 the size of the early version, so i suspect it is getting smaller all round. you could try it straight from the usb to compare. cheers
  2. Item: Music server Location: NZ Price: $750 Item Condition: very good used Reason for selling: moved on Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only. Free shipping to Australia and NZ. Extra Info: This was built early last year from new parts except for the usb card. The build was based on the wonderful information from the "Building the Ideal(ish) Music Server thread here on SNA. It is housed in a Streacom FC8alpha fanless case. Accompanying the case are the cooling accessories which have never been fitted as they have not been necessary with the low powered, low heat, atom based Jetway 9F9C-2800 motherboard. The OS is on a 32gb Lexar c-fast card, and is a new installation of the latest Snakeoil OS which I found to be excellent. There is a spare c-fast card with Daphile newly installed. Ram is provided by 2 DMS single sided 4gb sticks. There is also a SOtM PCI USB card which has been further optimised by replacing all the caps and regulators with high quality parts. Port 1 has been replaced too and the molex removed and replaced with a connector which allows direct attachment of the power wires from an LPS. All of these mods have been discussed widely as being of significant benefit. There is a 1Tb WD sata hdd for storage. I can include 2 power cables, 1 for the hdd and 1 for the sotm usb card. They have high quality XLR 3 point connectors which I used with a Gieseler power supply. Not included are any power supplies. You will need a 12v supply for the motherboard, another 12v for the usb card. I have used a HD-Plex and then a Gieseler for this. :
  3. AFL 2017 - In memory of Nude

    a title worn with pride and i really like port - they have provided some of my happiest moments. at least you have just been saved the gloating for another year
  4. AFL 2017 - In memory of Nude

  7. Item: OLSilver Mk1 Location: Christchurch, NZ Price: $525 with shipping included Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: Not being used Payment Method: Paypal, Bank Transfer Extra Info: This sale is for- - An Origin Live Silver Mk1 tonearm - One pair of brushed steel outrigger weights made by Magna Audio. - One heavy polished steel counterweight made by Magna Audio (in addition to the standard counterweight). - Michell VTA adjuster and finger nut (this needs a hole diameter in you plinth of 28mm, so if you're replacing a Rega arm you'll need to enlarge your mounting hole). This arm is in good used condition. The arm lift has a little bit of play, only when raised at the end of the record - but nothing to worry about and functions as it should (new arm lift is about $40). Just need to mention it. The arm is based on a Rega RB250 and uses the same 222mm mounting distance as the Regas. The arm has had a couple of outrigger type weights fitted either side of the main bearing. Great for tracking and is reversable (for more info Google 'TWL tonearm mod'). Instead of using lead fishing weights mentioned in the mod we opted for a pair of made to measure brushed steel options. As well as the original counterweight there is also an additional, heavier (190 gram, pictured on the arm) counterweight for use with cartridges weighing in at up to 25 grams. The arm also comes with the Michell VTA adjuster and the finger nut.
  8. Amp - isolation platform

    a very cheap and effective thing to try is a 20" bike tube, inflated only enough to lift above the valve, between 2 boards. i have one under my amp and it has made a significant improvement. a couple of puffs of air every 6mths or so. i have another under my WTA tt. turn the tube with the valve pointing outwards before inflating will help make inflating easier.
  9. i bought 500ml triton x-100 in NZ just over a year ago. so for a 0.1% mix what is your process @Owen Y ?
  10. AMR dead in the water (Boat anchor)

    the op bought the unit from sydney and was advised by the guy he bought it from to ship it back to where he bought it from. in my mind that is local. it also sounds like the dealer advised of the worst possible outcome which is fair of him to do. the op and i each made the same initial error of judgement and probably for very similar reasons. i cut my losses early on in the process and had a great outcome. what is unfortunate is that AMR are so restrictive regarding their "intellectual property". re the unit running hot, the CD-77 runs very warm too. mind you it's full of valves so that is to be expected.
  11. AMR dead in the water (Boat anchor)

    i had a similar but different experience. i have an AMR CD-77 which i bought 2nd hand and is now around 10yrs old. the usb input failed 3yrs ago so i took it to a local (christchurch,nz) repairer where it sat for 3mths. they were not able to repair so i rang the distributor who gave me the name and no. of their recommended repairer. it cost about $80 just for shipping - they are VERY heavy. the repairer was fantastic. he had to get a new usb module from england and replaced the dud one. the cost of repairs wasn't huge .and the service was so good i now ship anything that needs work to the repairer. he has even restored a Sony v-fet amp for me. i am looking fwd to having the CD-77 for another 10yrs

  13. A Wooden Ceiling?

    there is a macrocarpa sawmill nearby so i thought of using that. heavy and strong. could mix-up 150, 120, 90, 50, 25mm. would the roughsawn exterior provide significant diffusion?
  14. A Wooden Ceiling?

    ok - so i had a bit of a senior moment and have now realised i casn draw it on paper and take a photo. yes - i know.... so here is a floor and ceiling plan on 1 page and a side plan on the other. all dimensions are speculation, except i am fairly firm on the depth being 6m.
  15. A Wooden Ceiling?

    i spent over an hour trying, but no success. the room will be 6x4.5m. the ceiling will be vaulted to the 3m mark. mu plan is to have rough sawn boards 150x25mm running across it with a gap of about 20mm between them. they will be supporting wool or polyester insulation. peter the greek said - Aluminium channel was used to hold the insulation in place, covered in black fabric to keep the fibres in and slats over that underfloor insulation has a material edge on 1 side - that might be enough
