  1. Hi - a quick update over my lunch break. It does appear that I have under-priced this, but its my mistake so I will of course stick with it. I have over a dozen DMs already so I am going with the first local / for cash that DM'd me (sorry to interstaters but its a lot more convenient for me than having to price and pack for shipping). If it falls through I will DM the next local in order. I will Report as Sold once the sale is completed.
  2. I've had a few DMs on this - apologies I'm at work so I can't really get in and respond at the moment. Will try to respond at lunch if I can, otherwise early evening. Appreciate your patience.
  3. Further information: This is an This is a extremely well built piece of Scandanavian kit. It incorporates a high end Amplifer (Class D), CD Player, DAB Reciever and FM Tuner. The front can take an 3.5mm stereo plug so that you can connect an iPhone or Android phone etc. It’s a 2 channel system which runs; Power output: 2x75 W into an 8Ω load. Class D amplifier. I have been using it to power a pair of Elac 204s. RRP at the time was $3500 I have had this box for some time but its been in the same location all that time until I replaced it so its in pretty good condition
  4. I was able to renegotiate to $59 incl Sport HD and 2 boxes. Happy to stay at that price. Only for 6 months so we'll see what happens then.
  5. I think I am in the same boat. The rest of the family are happy enough to stream - often rather be on foxtel go via a laptop in bed than on the big screen with the foxtel box. But I find I do a lot of fast forwarding of sport - especially rugby union with the stoppages - and with games I don't care about as much, will often scan forward at 6 or 12x. This is probably the biggest thing holding me back from switching to pure streaming. I'm not on a great deal so I think I will need to go in prepared to cancel.
  6. I hadn't thought about that combo - running the Atmos off the Receiver. I am already essentially using the Primare as an amp for Blu-Ray off the Oppo - as it has more up-to-date surround processing.
  7. How the heck do I delete this? Was trying to tab content and ended up posting before I even started the post. I cannot find delete anywhere - usually I can as the OP? *** ok fixed now ? ***
  8. After a bit of advice on a potential receiver upgrade. My current core set-up is: Receiver: Primare SPA21 Speakers: 5.1 setup with Elac 204s + Sub Projector: Vivitek HK2299 with 110 inch screen Players (current & legacy): Sony 4k UBP-X700, Fetch, Foxtel, AppleTV 4K, Oppo 103 Setup in a hybrid study / theatre room of 4 x 4.5 M The Primare is ancient - has great sound but feel like its getting left behind. It has no HDMI inputs so video is feeding directly to the Vivitek via a simple 4K switch or via the Oppo. With audio going sep
  9. I do have some sympathy with that view but its not like they only carry Fox news - they have CNN, BBC etc. And you can take solace in the fact that Foxtel is losing them bucketloads of $$$.
  10. I have multi-room with an IQ2 and an iQ3. – thinking about upgrading both to the iQ4. But now I also have a decent FTTC NBN connection consistently running at around 45 Mbps. So I looked at the Foxtel Now streaming. I can get essentially the same content on NOW (Essentials and Sport) for $54 pm – whereas with multi-room etc I am currently paying $117 for the satelite service! So more than double the cost and the only discernable difference is the 4K content - if I upgrade to the iQ4? Seems a ridiculous price differential. Am I missing anything? Be curious to hear from anyone
