  1. No that one cost more and lacked the digital inputs! I would say this one is better value.
  2. I get the theory and did think about it but they sell all the same cables over there so thought it couldn't be a big issue? The plugs are just far more sturdy and feel (and are) safer (why I chose it), however that's redundant if I'm not insured because they are not Australian plugs (even if they are safer).
  3. You're of course right that Insurance companies will do anything not to pay out and it worries me that I use UK plugs. I did this because they fit far tighter in the socket and make Australian plugs seem flimsy and loose in comparison. In addition each plug has it's own fuse so IMO these two factors must make UK plugs safer. However I worry an insurance company would refuse to pay out!
  4. Looking at the second picture there this thing looks massive, it's far bigger than an apartment block let alone my house 😁!
  5. I think these are probably new (apparently a model is coming out?). Either way it has full warranty and sub 2k. https://www.excelhifi.com.au/cd-s2100-refurbished-black.html
  6. I have a NAD T777 v3 so not quite the same. I've had two (the first one went back) and both generate/d a low hum when I connect my Oppo via HDMI AND multi channel analogue. It's fine with either or but hums when both are connected. Does anyone else experience this with their v3 player? Does the new module fix this?
  7. I recently purchased a Yamaha CX C5000 for a two channel AV set up so not an exact answer but my experience here makes me think multi channel would be better played directly from the player. Using pure direct mode (switches off video and all processing) sounds so much better than when the when it's off I believe multi channel would sound better in this mode even without room correction. The only way to do that would be via multi channel output from your DVD/Blu ray player.
  8. This and the Arcam DV139 are cheap way to get a nice sounding SACD player that was much better than the competition from Marantz, Yamaha and Denon etc. at the time. This should probably be moved to the Audio section because, with the advent of blu ray, it's only real value is as an audio player (5.1 and stereo SACD/DVD-A and CD).
  9. Well that's frustrating! Switching off at the wall for a few minutes did the trick, I knew it was something simple!! I've already purchased a second hand replacement ;-(
  10. Please help The power indicator is flashing green and amber and I have no sound. I think this happened before years ago and I forgotten how it was fixed (I seem to remember it was really simple) - I have disconnected and reconnected the speaker cables and checked all the connections. The handbook is frustrating as it doesn't have a troubleshooting page and the amp is too old to find good information in the internet. Can anyone help me solve this?
  11. If it were a mark 2 I would have purchased it myself! This is a mark 1. It has the advantage of allowing DVD audio to be sent uncompressed by coaxial or optical cable which the mark 2 doesn’t , however, it does not let you transfer sacd to your pc which the mark 2 can.
  12. I have one of these and an Oppo 205. IMO this is better sounding via analogue out than the Oppo!
  13. Are the parts available to repair this player? Did you get a quote?
  14. Item: Yamaha cx-a5000 Price Range: $1000 Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: looking for an s-video av control option and open to suggestions Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible. (You can now delete this text).
