  1. Would this be any good? https://www.jaycar.com.au/concord-hdmi-audio-extractor/p/AC5030
  2. Some people will go to any length to get their supply of crystal meth, although in this instance they may well want their money back
  3. Well, he did say that ideally he wanted a replacement unit, and as I said I'm not attacking anyone, but it's not a year old and still under warranty. Sending it back with a blown fuse, and maybe a copy of monkeyboi's first post here, should be enough proof that it needs to be thoroughly checked. If you buy a faulty product, fixing the problem isn't the job of the purchaser One of the few drawbacks of buying online is that you often can't go down to the shop and front the seller involved.
  4. I don't understand the thought processes behind anyone saying try this fix or try that fix ( and I'm not being nasty to anyone, here ), but it isn't a year old and is still under warranty. Send it back and ask for your money back. The business has sold you a faulty item, and I would think the onus is on them to either fix it, or come up with a refund. Keep a note of when it broke, and the circumstances ( moving cables, turning off and on, whatever) under which it was being used at the time, so that if it keeps happening you can show it first occurred within the warranty period. If it was out of warranty, I'd not knock anyone for offering a solution, but as it stands it shouldn't be up to you to fix Emailing Lehman sounds like a good step. Perhaps they will offer a possible list of potential problems/fixes that you could forward on to the retailer. Sorry for the rant, but I've seen similar posts across the forum about new stuff that doesn't work, and people trying a ( quick) fix. It isn't your fault that it's faulty, and it certainly isn't your problem/job to get it fixed.
  5. Welcome to our group! Have a read of the pinned topics at the top of this heading to get an idea of the rules regarding selling stuff.
  6. It was implied in one of the above posts, but to be explicit: if you were to use a separate phono preamplifier, do not plug its output into the phono in on your pre-amp or integrated amp, whichever you are using.
  7. Just off the top of my head, have a look at: Selby Ezyhd CableChick Probably heaps of others out there.
  8. Have a read of the two pinned topics at the top of the page. Should tell you all you need to know.
  9. Would it be possible for you to provide a rough diagram of your room showing where your speakers, amplifier, and seating is? Also, could you tell us exactly what speaker output terminals are connected to which speakers? That may help to clarify things a bit.
  10. As you say, there's only Audio Junction left in Newcastle ( there were 7 or 8 different places when I first started out! ), but if you find some time one day, you could zip down to Gosford and have a look at Bill Mcleans, or Gosford Hifi. Sadly, I haven't been to Mcleans since they were in Long Jetty, and I have absolutely no experience with Gosford Hifi, but just for a look, they are closer than Sydney, and hopefully won't look down at you just for having a look around. If they do, walk away. As has been stated in the prior posts, consider second hand stuff. When you are only starting out, it can be a bit daunting to try and know what's what, but the good folk here will ( I hope ) be only too pleased to help.
  11. I'm a bit late to the party with this, but I just read that Leon Redbone died at the end of May. Bit of a pity, really. He certainly followed his own path. Didn't mind a bit of Leon every now and again.
  12. I've been considering this for a while myself, although I have yet to do anything practical about it. So far, I've been looking at the software solutions of "Spin It Again" by Acoustica, and "Golden Records" by NCH, both of which you have to pay for. They appear to be easy to use, doing most of the work for you, which I like the sound of. Probably lots of other solutions out there, some free ones as well, but this may give you a starting point, at least.
  13. Cast an eye over the range of turntables at Selby (selby.com.au). They have lots of stuff in the price range you're looking at. Give you an idea of what's out there.
  14. Unless you're confident to take on the job of tracing the fault and having a go at fixing it, then don't muck around, take it to a professional. For some suggestions on who might be in your general area, have a trawl through the "Recommended Repairers" thread in the General Hi-Fi heading.
  15. This might be worth a look. Not seen the product myself, just had a vague memory of it from a catalogue or somewhere. https://www.jaycar.com.au/floor-or-wall-cable-ducting/p/HP1226
