  1. Just bought the 75in X9500G for $3430. Happy with that. hopefully take delivery day. thanks for everyone’s help with this.
  2. Gave it another try, this time on a PC and it worked. Still got the following message but didnt seem to matter. You have pasted content with formatting. Remove formatting
  3. Yes, says something about you are inserting an image with formatting. and doesn't show the image
  4. Thank you your majesty. im assuming that's what we call you now ? or is it Almighty Overlord
  5. Ive spent considerable time lately listening to this album. Don't judge an album by its cover. Lol Chris Wilson - Spiderman Youtube sample
  6. Hey Scorchie it appears you've unlocked the birthday thread. i can't find where to delete the new one I made, so can you do that please. no point having two of them. cheers
  7. Good to hear. Must have been bought by a very discerning buyer. They didnt bloody drop it getting it to the car did they....
  8. A funny read here. https://web.archive.org/web/20050722050709/http://www.dba.org.au/forums/topic.asp?whichpage=1&ARCHIVEVIEW=&TOPIC_ID=1003 Who said you can't have good natured banter on a forum. Congrats AV mod, Caniffe and others.
  9. Differing opinions are fine. It's when it includes a personal attack that the issue arises. Anyway I think it's pretty obvious to all, so that's all I have to say on this matter.
  10. Hmmm interesting post. If +1 = disagree with the previous post and you're saying it's difficult to express context in print! I'd suggest you maybe look at how you express yourself. +1 on this forum has always meant you agree with the post. As a "forumite" wouldn't you find a post like yours misleading, if it meant you really disagreed? Yes I would agree, Mintys 2c was a conflicting opinion. Bizarre? well you can call it what you like.
  11. What gives me the impression? Maybe because the first 3 posts were +1's And no, Minty told him to go to Facebook and leave this site for the grown ups. Which is why the Mod suspended him. So you +1 but didn't agree?
  12. Maybe you should reread the thread, because the rest of us know where it went off track. After 3 positive response, you told him to leave the site. And maybe read the Mods comments too.
  13. Well, on youtube instruction videos, I like to see the proportion of likes to dislikes. Some of them are just plain dangerous.
  14. Are you sure that "legally" you need to use only double insulated cables for speaker wires? I think its more about the separation from LV cables. Not sure you need to be an electrician either.
  15. Sometimes lol If in doubt, install some conduit too, it'll make rerunning all the more easier later if needed.
  16. This is similar to the "which speakers should I buy" There will be some who believe without a doubt, that the most expensive 12AWG is the way to go and others who believe that cheapest is the way to go. Reality, it probably has more to do with what speakers you have and what type of listening you do. Sure, there will be subtle differences, but it will be different for different people. ie what tones etc you like. The only way to know for sure for you, would be to run some blind tests on your gear and see which you think is best. But given that means buying multiple types of cable its hardly worth it. Yes, cable can make a very small difference. Does that worry me? No, I have other random noises around me when I listen to anything. You probably wanted a definitive answer buy the one you can afford, connect it up and forget about it. The gear you have is probably going to be the biggest issue you have, not the cable. As far as insulation goes, I've not come across perishing insulation in speaker wires, but thats not to say it doesnt happen. I dont buy wire off Ebay, you're never sure youre going to get what you pay for.
  17. Did you NOT even read the previous 3 posts. Think what you like, but you didnt have to post it.
  18. To be fair, he has twice now jumped in and had a swipe at me. The first time contributed to getting us both a 1 day ban. He's not the only one who wants to see this infighting stop. Hello, there are quite a few of us (even you I presume) who want to see that. Just dont tell us youre neutral and want it to stop, then take sides by giving a backhander. (Maybe a PM would have been more suitable? yes?) We need an answer, but no one has an answer. Where to from here? I really dont know, because the suspicions, hidden agendas + history are all still there. You'd swear some on here want the whole forum to themselves or have it burnt to the ground so no one can have it. Anyway, thats another 2cents. You can believe me, or you can say Im full of crap, at this stage I dont care. Im looking for a solution.
  19. And theres the attitude. God help the checkout assistant if they unintentionally short change you 10 cents.
  20. In hindsight you are probably correct. More about the attitude than the numbers.
  21. And this is exactly the reason the AV Mod has said what he has. Your distrust is showing again. Firstly you picked the heading, made the whole thing too confusing, even though the question was self explanatory. Now your saying I deleted it because it didnt meet my "agenda" Trending of the data, what? around 12 votes? Yep, a forgone conclusion. As you well know, with the to and fro of members on this topic, I was hoping that each member would disclose their view clearly and without the "grey". This is again obvious in my opening post. The fact that Yorac also made it clear yesterday of his concerns about Alts, I thought that Public or whatever you want to call it, would be a better result for everyone. Chop, report me or let it go. I cant do anything right in your eyes, so why would I continue to try.
  22. Someone said you can make the poll public (which was my intention all along) I did go looking in editing this morning before work to try and find out how, but I didnt think I actually found anything or did anything. I do know using this site with an ipad is less forgiving than a PC. Maybe I did hit a button, but I would have thought I'd known.
  23. S**t, what happened to my poll?
  24. Yorac, correct me if I'm wrong, but can't only members, see OT? Also, your thoughts have not be clear to me. I don't know if I'm the only one, but you've spoken about keeping OT closed and opening with strict penalties.
  25. Thanks, not used to the poll option, hopefully I got it right. Would be good for members to also own their choice but I guess everyone has their reasons.
