  1. Sorry - didn't have replies switched on and sold them elsewhere.
  2. Item: XBox One S 500GB and Play and Charge Kit Location: Melbourne Price: $200 Item Condition: Excellent. Note that it does not come with the XBox Minecraft games because I have redeemed the vouchers. Reason for selling: Upgrade to Oppo UDP-203 Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only (if posted, I will send the Play and Charge kit without the box. Extra Info: XBox One S 500GB model with one controller and genuine Play and Charge Kit. I bought this to play UHD discs but have subsequently upgraded to an Oppo UHD-203, and have an Apple TV for streaming. It comes with a serial for Minecraft on Windows, but I redeemed the XBox copy so the XBox DOES NOT come with Minecraft. Pictures:
  3. Item: Pioneer BDP-440 universal Blu-ray player Location: Melbourne Price: $125 Item Condition: Some light scratching on the top of the case, but playback is not affected. Does not come with composite video or stereo audio cable (I'll throw in an HDMI cable instead). Reason for selling: Upgrade to Oppo UDP-203 Payment Method: Pickup - Cash only due to bulk of item. Extra Info: Plays Blu-ray (including 3D), DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, SA-CD, DVD and CD. Running hacked Chinese HDSir firmware, so it's region-free for DVD and region-selectable for Blu-ray. It is also apparently capable of playing FLAC, is Cinavia-free and can playback various ISOs (I cannot warrant these points because I haven't tried them). Pictures:
  4. Apologies for the delay in replying. I think it would be about $20.
  5. Item: Audioengine A2 active computer speakers Location: Melbourne Price: $150 Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: No longer have a desktop computer so surplus to requirements Payment Method: Pickup - Cash only Extra Info: These speakers kept me in high quality tunes during my postgrad degree. They are excellent bang for the buck computer speakers. The new 'A2+' version retails for $379 in JB Hifi (these add USB playback, but otherwise appear to be identical - see https://www.jbhifi.com.au/computers-tablets/accessories/audioengine/audioengine-a2-desktop-speakers-black/473378/ ) Pictures:
  6. Item: Klipsch S4i earphones for iPhone Location: Melbourne Price: $50 Item Condition: Brand new in box Reason for selling: Have bought some Bluetooth earphones... Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Excellent sound quality (I have another pair). Comes with metal carrying case and other sized tips. 3 button remote. Pictures:
  7. Panasonic has now published a patch for the stutter: http://av.jpn.support.panasonic.com/support/global/cs/tv/download/fw/eu_2017/down_eu_uk_cis_03.html
  8. A partial fix for this popped up on AV Forums this morning. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1LR32QXml4yuJFiG793jEgMzfB6kIfe-U/view It updates the version of the current firmware from 200a or 230a to 270b and removes the stutter for 25Hz and 50Hz material..
  9. Fortunately, I can't notice it on my 65" EZ950...
  10. Now $2195 at Bing Lee, or $2204 delivered at Appliance Central eBay (using P5OZZIE coupon)... https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/338309 https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/338298 (65" is $3600.50 using P5OZZIE coupon at Appliance Central eBay.)
  11. OLEDs have a feature that no-one except LG's engineers seems to know how it works. It's called 'pixel refresh' on LGs (it used to be 'clear panel noise') and 'panel maintenance' on my Panasonic. They basically are designed to reduce the risk of burn in, but have the neat side effect of reducing the banding and vignetting on OLED panels. There are two cycles: one that runs after 4 hours of viewing automatically for 8-10 minutes, and one that is manually engaged and should be run for 60-80 minutes after 2000 hours. On my Panasonic, the light on the front turns orange when it's running. At any rate, it's why you shouldn't be sending back OLEDs straight away if you notice problems but should rather wait them out to see if the panel gets cleaned up over the course of a few cycles...
  12. Well, my Panasonic OLED's panel slowly appears to be coming good. It's now run up 40 hours, with 10 auto compensation cycles and 1 manual comp cycle complete. The vignetting in the corners, while still present, has faded notably (when I first started checking at 16 hours, the bottom left hand corner was so black that I didn't even realise there was '5%' showing on the greyscale slide I was using. The '5%' is now quite pronounced). There's still a light bar, a dark line, a swirl on the left hand side and a bit of vignetting in the bottom right corner, but on the whole, it's not too noticeable now.
  13. Have now listed on eBay for the bargain starting price of $675 (buy it now is $899).
  14. Price drop! Now $895 for one of the greatest TVs ever made.
