  1. Its the Australia TAX, been happening for years on all goods. regards Bruce
  2. Gooodaye all Love my Kefkit Concerto's, do about 10hrs a day either in stereo use or surround sound. Vinyl wrapped and on very solid, heavy stands, look quite modern. Found l liked a mixture of electrolitic and film capacitors to get the value's required. With the straight film caps they were a bit bright. The stands improved the bass nicley. l would find it hard to better them. Butt..... l do want a Sansui Alpha and l doubt they would handle the power. The Concerto's are capable of shaking the house with a little Sansui AU505
  3. l only use flac and wav files, gave up mp3 years ago. They are on my main pc and feed my DACs via a optical link, backed up on other PC's that l also use to play in the garage and family room. l have 2 Fiilo players that do all formats and use those in the car and walking. The old Sony MP3 players are use to test unknown eqiupment. Keep flacs on the phone but the playback sucks. Crappy DAC l think. l use a FM transmitter in the cars. regards Bruce
  4. Goodaye all Just picked up another Sansui AU505 to do up. First thing l noticed was the earth pin had neatly been cut off the 3 pin plug. A former owner proberly had a earth loop going on. Either that or they were a thrill seeker. Had packaging tap to insulate the low voltage feed from the transformer. Fuses are intact . Apart from that its a pretty clean unit. This is going to be fun. Gotta stop buying Sansui amps. regards Bruce
  5. l would be worried about the exhuast fumes on this one. regards Bruce
  6. l vinyl wrapped a pair of Concerto's a couple of years ago with the car stuff. Still looks as good as new and was easy to do. The firm that does the sign writing on our trucks will do anything. Saw a white car they did to matt black, couldnt tell. Will be doing large areas of my plane when l am finished. regards Bruce
  7. Goodaye all Whats the thinking on using pads or paste on output transistors? Just finished the driver board on a Sansui AU2900 had a couple of pads missing as well as a lot of parts. In the past l always used paste for CPU's regards Bruce
  8. Had a unusual one on Saturday, update loaded and HDMI output to one of the screens looked washed out. Swapped screens, found it was the onboard HDMI output, no amount of adjusting would sought it so through a video card l had here in and all fixed. Not sure if it was the update with a dodgy driver or failing HDMI port. Never liked onboard video anyway. regards Bruce
  9. 1 New 8" speaker Boxed marked CW2110 Speaker marked 20-733B-1 Cant remember where l got it from, was in my mysterious trunk. Pickup Mooroolbark or Doncaster East Vic regards Bruce Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible. (You can now delete this text).

  11. Glad to see people happy with there setup. Minor fiddles proberly ok. regards Bruce
  12. Goodaye all Are you happy with your setup or are you a fiddler? After reading another thread l had to ask the question, are people chasing a unicorn or just have to much money and bored? Me l am very happy and dont plan any changes at the moment. Hey l got vintage Sansui, l pity those who dont.😁 (Vintage stuff is a habit with me) regards Bruce
  13. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/184677154214 For a Sansui diehard. regards Bruce
  14. Goodaye all Got a Bowers and Wilkins B&W LCR6. series 2 (Made in England) Fitted in well and sounds great. Bass is very clear. So its all English speakers for the Stereo and Surround sound. The old Jenson is going to have the drivers swapped around, bass and midrange are the same, so maybe it wont make the noise due to the freq change. Going on the Decking TV anyway. regards Bruce
  15. We have a Chromecast connected to the entertainment unit. Got so sick of buffering, dropouts that l put a old I5 there instead. Problem solved. We have a bandwidth problem with the children. regards Bruce
  16. Sorry should have clarified that bit a bit better. regards Bruce
  17. Goodaye all Been thinking about this recently. l have two 2 amps which do not have grounds on the chassis. Not double insulated, both serviced and in excellent condition. Now not too concerned because we have RCD's on the house and lets face it they are more reliable than a old fuse or circut breaker. (Sometimes a little too sensative) So if you have RCD's on the house l cant see a problem with using a isolation transformer. regards Bruce
  18. Goodaye all Ours system,s best day was 42kw here in Melbourne, with a average summer day being 32kw. 6.6kw of panels into a 5kw invertor. Last year they sent us a $1k cheque and last bill was already in credit of $350 We get a small bill in winter. Paid off in 2 years not the 3.5 l had predicted. Would like a battery but its just not worth it. regards Bruce
  19. Handy enough with the tools.😉 Its the time at the moment, got a couple of stalled projects. Was also hoping to pick something up in Melbourne. regards Bruce
  20. Ok, checked the Jenson, its a chinese made one with chinese drivers with numbers that are unsearchable. Jenson AVX200 my brother purchased it from Dougless Hifi in Nunawading in the 80's Has 4 5" drivers. Could get on to Wayne Dougless maybe for a driver but its still a chinese one. So to me its not worth doing anything much, although it does sound good. Would love a British made centre to match the Kef's and TDL's. regards Bruce
  21. Goodaye The Fronts are Kef Concerto's that have been restored with some mods to the crossovers Rears are TDL Nucleus. regards Bruce
