  1. 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 ;-(
  2. 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?
  3. 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.
  4. I have one of these and an Oppo 205. IMO this is better sounding via analogue out than the Oppo!
  5. Are the parts available to repair this player? Did you get a quote?
  6. 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).
  7. Can anyone suggest some in-ceiling speakers for Dolby atmos duty that would go with a ob1. Cb6. Db1, tle 1 5.1 surround system? Their wafers are way over budget, I’m thinking $500 to $1500 as it’s really just for atmos.
  8. Item: Dali Ikon 7, Vokal 2, 4x On Walls and Subwoofer Location: Marrickville Price: $2000 ono Item Condition: Excellent (the on walls have tape marks on the rear to hold the cable in place) Reason for selling: Replaced with PMC 5.1 set up Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Excellent sounding, complete 7.1 surround speaker package that is great value at this price Please feel free to ask any questions! I am keen to sell as I have found a replacement subwoofer so this is no longer in use https://www.whathifi.com/dali/ikon-7/review Photos:
  9. I came upon this post by chance and have wired my XLR cables as suggested. I think you are right about the absolute polarity and I would recommend this to other owners of this unit, I'm not sure it really matters if the XLR outputs are "padded down" (this sounds negative) as my amp has a volume control?
  10. https://www.whitepages.com.au/kimil-electronics-11484163/croydon-park-nsw-11484158B would be my choice! or http://www.marrickville.com.au/listing/hi-fi-equipment-service/mb-electronics/592278/
  11. You are Sydney so I would suggest trying the Audio Note Oto or Soro if you need more power (https://www.audionote.com.au/). I know my next move will be in that direction and Bryan is a lovely guy to deal with..... more engineer than sales person. The added benefit is that he can help you tube roll if you want to tweak the sound here and there and he can fix/upgrade your equipment in the future.
  12. Can anyone point me to the right place to download this? I went to the Quad home page https://www.quad-hifi.co.uk/downloads/ and the link doesn't work. I wrote to them a few days ago and no reply (are they still in business?). Thank you in advance
