  1. I will have a look at these two options. The Zappiti is connected with a single HDMI cable to the TV. The soundbar is by way of optical cable to the TV.
  2. Really impressed with my Zappiti One 4k HDR. I think these units really punch way above their weight. The only think I haven't been able to resolve is audio from the soundbar. I have a Samsung TV with accompanying soundbar. I can watch the TV with the audio coming out of the soundbar however with the Zappiti connected to the TV the sound comes from the TV speakers only. Not sure why. Zappiti coupled to the TV by HDMI cable only.
  3. Got to see the ribbons when I popped in to the repairers a week ago. Sadly have to get my panels rewired or rather new quasi ribbon as ribbon has already degraded from rust? Not happy Jan. Has the repairer absolutely stumped although he didn't do it in the first instance. Looking forward to getting the panel back.
  4. You're almost saying this as if it translates into fact. How do you know the specs mean real life improvement in viewing experience.?
  5. @Bunno77 Dan this is much more expensive but this is very encouraging for a TV this size which typically retail for much much more - https://www.harveynorman.com.au/hisense-100-inch-s8-4k-led-lcd-smart-tv.html
  6. This is all well and good but is missing a very important detail - the advertised specifications promote 500 wpc into 8 ohms and 800 wpc into 4 ohms with unconditional stability into a 2 ohm load Anyone embarking on such a build would expect nothing less than the stated output figures particularly when an overstated transformer is thrown into the mix. There are a number of issues at hand which need to be addressed hence why the amp is making a trip down south. Unfortunately a number of things in my personal life has resulted in things slowing down at this stage. I imagine ma
  7. As I have discovered in my personal life this year you have to take the good with the bad. I too am on the tail end of a Holton DIY build. I have to return the amplifier to Anthony with the view to addressing the transformer amongst other issues. One of the great things about these builds is that you get to extend yourself with something that you wouldn't ordinarily do. Let's be honest, these builds serve as an opportunity for free advertising for the developer as well. But it wouldn't be a build if there weren't hiccups along the way which both parties n
  8. These are really good 4k players as well! Bargain price.
  9. Unfortunately the limiting factor isnt just in the transformer. The intention is for Anthony to source an appropriately sized transformer. This test was completed with the existing transformer. These results were not unexpected. A very good test nonetheless. Maggies do test the resilience of any amplifier particularly into the lower impedance. Current is the critical factor for any maggie.
  10. In answer to your question the amplifier "should" be delivering 500 wpc into 8 ohms and 800 wpc into 4 ohms. Sadly nowhere near it. Rail voltage amongst other things is an issue.
  11. The death of my father and COVID during the last few months put a lot of things on the back burner. Managed to get a colleague to put the amp on the bench and confirmed a number of suspicions that I have had - that is that the amp is performing way way under expectations. On the way to getting a box built and off the amp goes to Anthony. Its clear the power output is nowhere near the mark. Looking at the figures its almost as if this amp is performing like the 300/500 wpc series. A lot of information gathered in these tests.
  12. @AudioGeek as Derryn Hinch would say, shame shame shame on you to even suggest a change of speaker 😅😅😅
  13. Fantastic outcome Andy. What made you choose the E30 if I may ask?
