  1. https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-54761824 Untouchables Dr No Name of the Rose Finding Forrester Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade... my favorite

  3. You may need to add a currency dominator soon... and maybe a caveat that prices can differ in different continents...
  4. Remember to consider : the item may be working well prior to shipping, but if it’s dead on arrival what happens? settle payment methods and all shipping and any insurance costs tax and custom charges
  5. Shipping will be your main issue. I might add that you may want to stay AWAY from the Asian site Prices are quite 'different' shall we say in Asia... you might be come disillusioned... I can't find my old sticky on shipping to Oz thread... maybe Marc can find it.. TVs are cheap in Oz, but the other stuff can be considerably cheaper, especially the Asian brands like Marantz... If members in Oz start comparing prices, you may see more white anting or comments which don't help the sellers IMO...
  6. Did my review: This speaker will do well... https://peteswrite.blogspot.com/2020/10/kef-ls-50-meta-review-and-comparison.html
  7. Nice space, I have a 7.2.4 system running in such a space. So I'll say go the full hog and get 7.1.4 or two subs!
  8. No no, please get matching tweeters for the front three... You can see my setup in my signature. But do sort out what you want, HT first or stereo. (https://peteswrite.blogspot.com/2020/02/my-setup-22020.html) A more complicated idea is to have a soundbar for HT - mind you the good ones aren't that bad. Try the HK Enchant 1300 for example (http://peteswrite.blogspot.com/2019/04/harmon-kardon-enchant-1300-review.html) And then a proper stereo system for your critical music listening...
  9. If music matters, 2.1 is fine. If HT is your main interest, then a 3.1 is better. IMO The centre and the sub will carry most of the info.
  10. 6" from the wall? I reckon the Monitor Audio Bronze 2, Usher 520, Or Elac Debut 6.2 will be nice. They are all front ported. Or if you can get more coin, the B&W 805 is a lovely speaker. You won't regret it.
  11. TS sits at 4m, so I'm trying to tell him that a 65" - even a top model will not be used at it's optimum at such distances..
  12. For you to enjoy the benefits of a 65" OLED you'll need to sit within 2.5m or even less...
  13. At 4m, 4k is moot... I sit 2.5m from my 75" Sony. No fuss and even then, I feel it's rather small..
