    Help setting up bass shaker on PS4 Pro

    From what I can see you're using the digital coax out of the DAC. Can you plug the RCA cable directly into the DAC on the Red/White Line Out? Assuming you have something like this: https://www.jaycar.com.au/converter-aud-anlg-dig-rca-coax-toslink/p/AC1596

    Good Value Wireless Access Point

    Ubiquiti makes predominantly commercial grade products, though they make some of them at consumer price points. I'd highly recommend a Ubiquiti AP AC Lite access point. It works over PoE, but comes with a power injector that can stay where your router is, reducing clutter. I've used one for the last year, usage including HD video streaming and never once had it drop out.

    Roadbike Choice

    That's no fun.. My most recent bike was a Husqvarna SM510R supermoto. It got written off when a car pulled across my path while I was doing about 80kmh. Bike was written off, I don't have any lasting damage. The irony is that if I was doing the wheelies that that bikes begs me to do, she likely would have seen me and stopped. Looking to get a supernaked, along the lines of the KTM 1290r. Though I loved test riding the MV Agusta Brutale 800 recently, it's not as fast, but it looks better and feels a bit more nimble. These style of bikes attract me more so that the other Japanese supernakeds because they have character. The Japanese bikes are incredibly well engineered machines, and for that reason they're boring unless used on a track (IMHO). The KTM, MV et al scare me a little when their unpredictability comes out which brings more fun with less speed

    Great to hear you're happy mate I can definitely relate with Yamaha's ability to make a torquey inline-4 after riding their insane MT-10

    Naked bike would be much more comfortable for that trip, couldn't agree more about the 1290 SuperDuke preference. Since that is out of the price range, a Kawasaki Z1000 or SuperDuke 990 are in your price range at around 10 years old. I'd take these over the VTR/VFR any day. Another option would be a Suzuki SV1000 purely for the V-Twin balls like the Duke. Whoops... Just saw that you've already solved this dilemma. How's the Yama go on that commute?

    RCA plugs tingling - advice please!

    So simply replacing the power injector is the best option? Second to that being to buy an antenna isolator?

    RCA plugs tingling - advice please!

    Thanks for that. Are you referring to the masthead amplifier itself being the problem or the power injector?

    RCA plugs tingling - advice please!

    I've also experienced this, albeit with different gear. Zaphod - If the antenna is disconnected and the problem is solved, how do you isolate the leak from the antenna so that it can still be used?

    SOLD: FS: (Perth) Schiit Bifrost DAC

    Sold pending pickup/payment
  10. Item: Schiit Bifrost DAC Location: Perth, WA Price: $350 neg. Donation to SNA included Item Condition: Very good condition, some oxidisation visible on RCA terminals but will be contact cleaned prior to sale Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup or Ship as negotiated - Cash or Paypal Extra Info: I am selling my Schiit Bifrost digital to analog converter due to lack of use. It's a great looking and sounding little unit that has not been used to it's full potential while in my possession. The DAC was always kept with the rear power switch in the off position until I planned on listening, so powered hours on the unit are minimal. I have not opened the case, nor has it been upgraded, so I believe it is the 4490 DAC inside. These are well reviewed as shown below: http://www.tonepublications.com/review/the-schiit-bifrost-dac/ https://www.stereophile.com/content/schiit-audio-bifrost-da-processor http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/schiit2/1.html Manufacturer site: http://www.schiit.com/products/bifrost Pictures:

    PSA sub amp blown?

    I assume since these amps have no heatsink fins on the plate that instead they sink heat through the plate itself. Based on this assumption I have many times held my hand against the amp plate during long hard use (during parties etc) and never felt more than warm. Never enough heat to consider it hot. Obviously this is not to say other components are not getting too hot, just those sunk to the plate seem to be cooled sufficiently.

    PSA sub amp blown?

    Glad to hear I'm not alone in this. I have had two PSA amps die on me so far too. They lasted a bit longer than yours though, about a year each. Peter went down the same replacement path with me, though I made sure that he covered all postage costs both times. With regard to the ICE amp upgrade, my logic was that if this amp dies again, it will still be well within the warranty period, hence if another dies I will again not be out of pocket. The longer I put off the ICE upgrade the longer the new amp warranty covers me for. While I have always been very happy with Peter's service, I was disappointed that the warranty on the new BASH amp remained at the initial purchase date and not the more recent supply date. This means that eventually, at the current death rate of >1 per year, I'm likely to have a paperweight sub within one year of warranty expiry unless I go with the ICE upgrade. Very interested to hear your thoughts on the new amp
