  1. Thanks for the update Andrew. Happy you got it sorted. The constant clicking would have sent me mad.
  2. A monitor will accept any source a TV does. Depending on the resolution it may look strange but it should work as long as you don't exceed the native resolution of the screen.
  3. Great to hear it's helped someone already. Still trying to figure out what will work best for me.
  4. Further information: Schiit Saga for $450 including delivery. This is an original Schiit Saga. I have used this for around 2 years now and had no issues what so ever. It still looks fantastic with only a few faint blemishes on the remote. I have included the LISST Tube (solid state tube) which has to be ordered from the US and cost around $100. It seems they no longer sell these but this essentially gives the Saga a solid state gain stage. I will also include the original NOS 6SN7 Russian tube which has probably 500hrs on it. I will also include an Australian made Radiotron 6SN7 which has maybe 200hrs on it. If your interested in a fantastic PRE, this is it. It is as good as a Magdrigal Proceed PRE I have with the added bonus of some tube loviness and will stand up to PREs multiple times it's price. It has a unity gain mode that just uses the relay controlled volume section of the PRE and a gain mode that uses tube section once engaged. Due to the relay attenuated volume control this was also as clean as the LDR volume control PRE one of my mates purchased from a well known business here. It was measured over at audiosciencereview and was well received and commeded for its ability as a preamp. See here: https://www.audiosciencereview.com/forum/index.php?threads/review-and-measurements-of-schiit-saga-tube-pre-amp.6520/ Feel free to ask any questions you have and I will get back to you when I can. Happy for Canberra natives to pick up with a small discount due to saving on postage. Photos:
  5. Look like a cracking little project. Keen to see what they end up looking like and your thoughts on how they sound.
  6. Maybe, I've never seen anything like this personally. Not to mention it would be a poor design using a relay which will fail quickly if switching all the time. In saying that I believe designs like this would exist but in a new intergrated, you'd hope not. It's probably best the OP contact Rotel directly to see if this is the case.
  7. Is the unit still under warranty? If so I would have this looked at. If it was used, I would ask the user to at the least, help cover the repair. If it was just the sub playing up, it could have been the Mac. With all digital inputs causing the issue, then it seems like a fault.
  8. Is this just with the Mac or is this also with other sources. I would also try it with a TV using optical to narrow down if it happens with multiple sources.
  9. I've heard systems that cost multiples of what I earn in a year, twice in my lifetime. My mates Spendors and his comparatively modest front end is just as good. They go loud when needed and have detail and punch in spades. Tone is absolutely spot on.
  10. Allo DigiOne player (streamer) plus a Topping D50s dac. Gives you everything you need and will sound much better then an all in one solution at the same price. Just more cables etc.
  11. I am probably going to buy a second one. So I'll be 'that guy' too.
  12. This looks to be in mint condition and even has a headphone output. This would probably push ahead of my DAC and Cartridge purchase if I had the money. Looks like a glorious piece of kit mate. GLWTS
  13. Have a look at Legend Audio. Australian made subs from a very reputable speaker brand. I have their 10inch, which will go as deep as a Rel T7i but at half the price. They don't have the same finish quality but look good in person. To put it simply, it sounds amazing and I intend to get a second one (for stereo subs) when money permits.
  14. Hey Decruzb, Maybe start a new thread here: https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/forum/117-beginners-purchasing-advice/
