  1. I can't comment about any sound improvements but for the price & quality of these it was a no brainer just to protect empty RCA's & XLR's. i do need to get more but other things keep coming up lol. Must come back & order another lot.
  2. I'm defiantly over 40 but Fortnite is to fast for me lol. I play Xbox COD as I just like to run around & shoot stuff. My boy plays competitive Raimbow6: Siege, good for a bit of pocket money now & then. Finding a good team to start with was the hard part.
  3. Never head of it but it could be a new thing. I'd just grab an advertising picture off google images, crop & use that lol. You van always change your avatar once account is open.
  4. I was excited to tune into this. I hadn't heard anything about it & while flicking through the program list "music from the homefront" shows up. How cool is this! It's ANZAC day remember lol, was really annoyed when I realised there was to be no Vera Lynn tunes from the telly lol. I'm 110% behind a day for frontline workers who really do not receive the respect or recognition so well deserved. Just not ANZAC day, They carry on the ANZAC spirit as do so many Aussie's / Kiwi's in very different roles. ANZAC day is for the creators I believe.
  5. I've just finished building this PC for my son this afternoon. Will be used as a 4K gaming machine for Rainbow 6: Seige mainly. He coaches a team so records a lot of games & lots of map saves for game plays. He was more then happy with mine so I have used similar components. Only things that are different- Mine- Noctursa DH15 CPU cooler New- AIO Corsair H100i CPU cooler Mine- Corsair HM1000i PSU with factory cables New- Corsair RM1000i PSU with aftermarket Corsair sleeved cables with built in resistors (no idea what they do lol) Mine- i7-9700K New- i7-9700KF Again I've gone for the NVIDIA GTX-1080Ti GPU, (I use the Founders Edition, only available second hand) Until Ray Tracing is a real world thing, I can't justify the price tag on the RTX series GPU's. Until then I don't think you can beat the GTX-1080Ti cards. Just look at scores of both series in this thread & others. Looking at the SSD sores on all these systems, I'm surprised to see a few low numbers there, I can't see why they would be so low? Is it the CPU, GPU or RAM? I can't see why there is a large difference between mine / new HDD & RAM. Might have to upgrade mine lol I'm so tempted to grab a i9-9900K to try out. Would like to see if anything has a huge improvement. Both PC scores below. Easier then scrolling up to compare new to mine NEW PC UserBenchmarks: Game 128%, Desk 165%, Work 143% CPU: Intel Core i7-9700KF - 101.3% GPU: Nvidia GTX 1080-Ti - 136.2% SSD: Samsung 970 Evo Plus NVMe PCIe M.2 1TB - 356% HDD: Seagate Barracuda 8TB (2017) - 97.5% RAM: Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO DDR4 3200 C16 2x16GB - 107.9% MBD: Gigabyte Z390 AORUS MASTER MY PC User Benchmarks: Game 128%, Desk 164%, Work 147% CPU: Intel Core i7-9700K - 110.5% GPU: Nvidia GTX 1080-Ti - 132.3% SSD: Samsung 970 Evo Plus NVMe PCIe M.2 1TB - 343.1% HDD: Seagate Barracuda 4TB (2017) - 78.1% RAM: Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO DDR4 3200 C16 2x16GB - 76.8% MBD: Gigabyte Z390 AORUS MASTER
  6. I tried VR at a friends on the PS4 & felt it was very lacking. Hopefully the PS5 will be much better, it should be as things evolve. If you want too try a large setup, take a look at Zero Latency in North Melbourne. The free roam is the biggest feature they offer I feel. The graphics are good, but the games are aimed at at a family atmosphere so not to graphic. They may have R18 games that are not advertised. A great way to kill Zombies I built a PC to run VR at Hi-Res for home & was about to get the VR setup. Son is a big gamer & really needs to update his PC so I've been building his first. With all the setups I researched, the VIVE Pro full kit is about the best bit of home VR going. Then upgrade with the wireless kit. Looking around the $2500 mark to get setup with the headset & extras. Most of the PC games around run on Steam, so you will need an account there. Game prices are not to bad either.

  12. Hi Andy, Pre-filters- down to 1 micron particle removal, you can get finer filters RO vs Distilled water - about the only difference is distilled water removes the oxygen content. DI process- removes both positive & negative ions. The top 4 shops I wouldn't have a problem getting water from would be.... 1) Deer Park Aquarium on Station Rd in Deer Park - His system was over 3K & well looked after 2) Reeflections Aquarium on the Nepean hwy in Bentleigh 3) Fishworld Aquarium on Cheltenam Rd in Dandenong 4) Bunarong Aquarium on Overport Rd in Frankston There are others around but i would check the readings before using in our tank. We use this system at home which can be plumbed for drinking water as well. Only have to change the filters every 12 - 18 months. Again there are plenty of systems around but these guy's know their stuff. Reef tank owners are right on top of water, what gets spent here for stereo gear gets spent on some of these tanks so always looking for the best. Sorry for prattling on so much
  13. Hi all, Never thought I would have any input to help with a vinyl thread lol, but I look after large amounts of water in our lounge. If you want very pure water & your close to an aquarium shop that sells marine fish / coral, they will have some of the cleanest water around. It's not suitable for drinking as it has been stripped of minerals, nano-solids & chemicals. Just drop in ask if they sell RO/DI (reverse osmosis/de-ironised water) You should be able to get 20-25 Ltr's for between $2.50 - $5.00. If your reel fussy, ask them what the TDS reading of the water is. They should know, but most would be willing to measure it to show you. You wont find cleaner water on any super market shelf. If anyone in Melbourne is interested I can recommend a couple around the place. Hope it helps someone.
  14. I don't have a dedicated 2ch setup, more HT & daily driver in the lounge. They came from the classifieds here around Nov last year & I've only put about 40hrs on them. They are hooked up to a Yamaha CX-A5100 which runs everything then into a small pair of Osborne F4 / Interlude's. (I don't know which they are lol.) The guy's here have a lot more experience with amps / speakers then I ever will. Just thought you might like to borrow them for a bit. I only brought them because I wanted to hear this "valve" sound so many are fond of. Personally I think pre is the way to go, opens up so many more options in the future to try different things without having to change much. Much easier to change out amps then an integrated. What part of Melb are you in?
  15. Hi @vassp1503562426 Not the Cyber 800 II as recommend above but I have these Cyber 800 blocks sitting here not doing much. Since your in Melbourne & hopefully not to far, your welcome to borrow them for a week or so to play with. Just send me a message if your interested.
