  1. Im not sure your pricing is correct studio, 100s sell for around $2200 MSRP a pair state side, thats over double the price of the pair of Elec UF5. I could get a whole surround setup for the same cost as a single pair of studio 100s. You are right though I wonder how they stack up, as the guy designed the TAD Reference One he knows how to make something sound good.
  2. They are said to be US$350 for the centre, $500 for the bookshelf pair and $1000 for the floorstanders pair. Every review I have read is absolutely glowing about them.
  3. The new Andrew Jones designed Elac Uni-fi series received a tremendous amount of buzz at CES and are very inexpensive. Does anybody know if they will be stocked locally? http://www.digitalaudioreview.net/2016/01/ces-2016-andrew-jones-does-it-again-with-elac-ub5/ http://www.audioholics.com/surround-sound-reviews/elac-uni-fi
  4. 10-12 was thinking under 2kEdit - I was looking at the SVS SB12-NSD subwoofer, the ultra is a little too large
  5. So does anybody have any sub recommendations?
  6. I don't mind the Mod4's as front and centre's as they would be next to and under the TV. I would use Mod2's as surrounds
  7. I live in an apartment so it massively limits what sort of speakers I can use, personally I'd love a pair of Epos 5's that I selected for my brother but what can you do. I'm looking at a Mod4 system powered by a X4000 which with XT32 should hopefully sound ok. Has anybody tried the Mod4's? Also I'd be looking at teaming them up with a 3rd party sub, any recommendations of a good sub that will handle the extra duties?
  8. No it means the bluray is not in HD which has nothing to do with how the game was shot only distributed. Here is a link to Gearhouse's site in regards to their OB equipment. http://www.gearhousebroadcast.com/australasia/content/outside-broadcast/ Have a look at their equipment. Now do you think you would do the largest sporting event in a truck that can control 16 cameras and 5 replays servers (SD1) or in a truck that can do 20 cameras + 4 super slow mo cameras + 4 RF cameras and 8 replay servers and seat 11 people in the production area (HD2) or in one that can only seat 6? I'm thinking you would pay for a larger truck, the same one that does all their big games.
  9. And so is the AFL on seven, they just don't give it to anybody else.
  10. They said there would be 21 channels not everyone would have access to all 21 channels. If you don't pay for sports I'm guessing you won't get access to any of the sports channels. Like you needed to sports tier for the olympics app.
  11. That's fine except we can't pay a premium to watch it Live in HD because those muppets win't give it to Fox Sports in HD
  12. According the Free TV code of practice they only have to respond to complaints by mail.
  13. Not really their music hasn't had DRM on it for ages. Even if they closed you'd still have a copy of everything on your computer.
  14. 7 have the 2 best games each week, Friday and Saturday night. Saturday arvo and Sunday aren't games 3 and 4.
  15. The bluray version of Breaking Bad doesn't have the AMC watermark.
  16. The olympics use a 3X3 rule. Which means you can use 3 mins of footage, 3 times a day. Still photos don't count. Foxtel have the rights to the Olympics, Fox Sports doesn't same goes for Sky News. Sky News could be get themselves into trouble because they do crosses from the Foxtel studio at the IBC. Thats an accredited broadcaster area however they Sky News is unaccredited.
  17. Its got nothing to do with Foxtel, Setanta are a 3rd party channel provider. Foxtel don't want anything to do with but they are legally obliged to carry their signal. Its for that reason you have to phone Setanta directly to have the channel added and not the Foxtel call centre. I have Setanta as soon as the Euro's is finished I'm cancelling. I hardly watch it and for $15 a month its not worth the money.
  18. Actually they don't normally ask questions, I have had a box disconnected for 6 months due to renovations and they just hit the box without blinking an eye.
  19. I don't know how people get confused, its very easy to tell when the graphics are HD (nice and smooth) and SD when they aren't.
  20. God there are some muppets on here. The AFL isn't going to make 7 broadcast matches in HD. It would mean they would get less money for the rights next time. Currently the main channel gets substantially more advertising dollars then the secondary channels. For 7 to broadcast in HD they would have to show the match on the main channel (SD) and the HD channel. Ratings would be almost identical to what they are now, HOWEVER currently they show something else on the HD channel when the AFL is on so they get some advertising revenue from this. Broadcasting in HD would cost them the extra advertising revenue, thats why they don't do it. They couldn't give a crap if people want to watch in HD as it doesn't effect their bottom line. Until a time that they aren't commercially disadvantaged by showing the game in HD they won't. The government is to blame the HD channel should have been legislated as the main channel (simulcast with the analogue channel), this mistake has cost a lot of sports fans the opportunity to watch HD sport. ie AFL, NRL and Cricket.
  21. The AFL can't do anything about it, they can't force 7 do broadcast in HD its not in the contract.
  22. Try doing a search, has been covered numerous times.
  23. Channel 9 don't own any share in Foxtel They don't share any equipment http://www.sportcal.com/News/release_article.aspx?articleid=85409 http://www.globaltv.com.au/announcements/global-television-and-fox-sports-australia-in-new-3-year-australian-open-deal
