  1. Just in case anyone is considering purchasing this unit I really recommend it!! Insane value for $650 delivered from B AND H Photo. I'm using my blinds as a screen and I can't fault it. Very bright and input lag while gaming is non existent. This has to be the best bang for your Buck projector on the market. Aussie stores sell for $900 but as I said can get it for $650 during us sales.
  2. This should work then right? Give me plenty of room to move at 5m too!
  3. Thanks so much guys, Cheers! 😁
  4. Hi guys, I just ordered a Viewsonic PX700HD and I was wondering if anyone knows if I'll have to buy a step down converter to run it in here? Does anyone here use a US Projector? Any help would be really appreciated. I don't wanna fry it! Haha Thanks
  5. I pulled the pin and I'm back into the projector world after a 5 years absence. I got the Viewsonic PX700HD for $600 through black Friday sales from the US. Has anyone got this unit? The viewsonic 4k projectors have been getting rave reviews, but I'd love to hear from some Aussies that have the PX700HD. Any tips, thoughts or things to look out for? Also, I'm thinking of getting an outdoor screen... Maybe even something waterproof/cheapish. Anyone have any recommendations? Cheers guys! 😁 https://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=email&A=details&Q=&sku=1392297&is=REG
  6. Either way the Viewsonic has been getting solid reviews! Don't know why they get no love from Aussies..Well actually I do, not many sell them and brand recognition is low...also prices aren't consistent with US prices at all.
  7. So most of you guys prefer this to the Tk800? I know the 800 is better for light rooms and the w1700 has better colour reproduction and is better than the 800 in room with 100% light control.... That's pretty much the only difference right? The cheapest I've seen the TK800 for is $1,899 I suppose the w1700 would be similar. I really want the Virwsonic Px747, but for some reason it's much more expensive in Australia than Benqs compeating models... Unless u buy from BnH photo US for $1,700aud. The Viewsonic has only 16ms input lag and is 3500 lumens.
  8. *Edit after a fair bit of tinkering, I've got the Sony working a treat! It did take some effort/time though!
  9. Interesting, ok I won't use video one then... No idea what Bravia sync is though. Will Google. *Edit ahh CEC OK
  10. I bought the Sony 1080 yesterday and I love it! Such a noticible improvment over my Onkyo Txnr555! I can't find a dedicated Sony 1080 thread so thought I'd ask here. The 1080 has 6 HDMI inputs but only 4 input buttons on the remote... Wtf!? Video 1 and 2 don't have dedicated buttons like the rest for some reason. Currently, to access video 1 I have to click watch then select the input manually. This takes ages! Am I missing something? Theres a 'TV' INPUT button that I'd love to assign to the video 1 input but can't seem to do that in the HDMI settings. Any ideas from 1080 owners would be great!!!
  11. Dang! I tried to buy the this amp today, hoping that JBHIFI would go close to the 1k mark as they did late last year. The closest I could get was $1,200... I think 1k is the magic mark so looks like I gotta wait for a sale!
  12. Thanks for that mate! I'll buy local
  13. Speaking of the Sony STRDN 1080... Is there any disadvantage to buying from the US? I found it for $800aud...Just means a cheap power adapter and no local warranty right?
  14. Hi Guys, I'm either getting an Onkyo TX-RZ710 or a TX-NR555 next week and I have a couple wireless speaker questions. I know the RZ is a class above, but i've got a 2nd hand option for the same price (both $650). I notice the TX-NR555 doesn't have rear speakers preouts... Does that mean I'm out of luck if I want any form of wireless rears? (My new house can't have cords going from front to back). I know both support Onkyo NCP-302 FireConnect Wireless Speakers... Is there anyway to link these to the receiver and use 302's as my rears in a 5.1 setup? that would be awesome, but I somehow doubt it. Otherwise, is there another wireless speaker option that I could use in conjunction with either Onkyo amp that you would recommend? Thank you, any help would be great!
