  1. Hey peeps Has anyone tried either of these. Mainly to be used at the gym and while out doing light exercise. Water resistance not really a concern. Reviews indicate the sony have great sound and reasonably good noise cancelling. I have the similarly named sony over ear headphones and are happy with them, just a bit bulky for the gym and they make my ears a bit warm. Addicted to audio currently have both at some reasonably good prices. Can get the sony ones cheaper online but they are international stock, im more inclined to support a local australian business
  2. is this something that could be used to help solve my subwooffer hum. coz its been driving me insane
  3. Hi Barry I have tested an isotek board over the weekend and it did not resolve the issue i was hoping it would. Im sorry but i will have to withdraw my offer to purchase. good luck with the sale. Regards Steffan
  4. interested but i need to wait on something else late next week. If you find a sale before hand dont let me stop you
  5. Im very very interested but can not do anything until late next week. If you find a sale before then, however, i wont expect you to hold it for me.
  6. I was looking at the same thing yesterday i found these https://www.selby.com.au/cables/connectors/banana-plugs/20-pack-stackable-banana-plugs-bp0505a-20pk.html I prefer this type as i have found the ones with the locking screws (in my limited experience) to be unreliable. These ones i feel lock the wires in better.
  7. more information required. what is your source (is the tv the source (like a netflix app on the tv)) are u using hdmi or optical. i have always found it much easier to have the source before the receiver and then just use the hdmi passthrough to send picture only through to the tv. the application of hdmi across so many devices has been seen to be problematic.
  8. Awesome. I will be happy to take you up on the offer. I will make arrangements to drop in on the weekend. cheers Steffan
  9. Hey peeps. I have a ground loop. i have tried all the common solutions and have not been able to get rid of it. It doesn't help that i am not physically able to have everything on the same power circuit due to where things are located. I'm wondering if an isotek power board will help. Is there anyone in Perth, i'm in Yokine, who might be willing to lend me one for a day Regards Steffan
  10. So im trying to figure out if this update applies to my x7000 I cant seem to find anything to correlate the model number of the DLA-RS1000, DLA-RS2000, DLA- RS3000 to our model numbers. It could be because they dont?
  11. I figure i will go with one that is both 8 and 4 ohm capable . . . i cant see it being 2 ohm
  12. im looking at the option of using a Crown Lxi 1500 amp to power the sub in my def tech tower (BP7004) which has had an amp failure. I could get a new amp module but thats in excess of $800 and they never actually fixed the issue. It's only a matter of time before the second tower has a similar amp issue - Its a known common issue apparently. The problem i have is determining what impedance the sub runs at . . . i haven't been able to find anything on the net to tell me. The speaker itself runs nominally at 8 ohm. I'm assuming there's some way for me to measure it from the the s
  13. i would suggest that if you want to be playing things at that level, you should be looking looking at a diffrent setup. A pre-pro setup with a decent amp. The amps in that avr are babies compared to a poweramp and you were driving them to max levels. Your actually quite lucky you didnt destroy your speakers at the same time. Im pretty sure they would have been clipping at that level. AVR's are really not designed for that kind of load. are they 8 ohm speakers or 4 ohm. alot of avr's are not capeable of powering 4 ohm speakers either.
  14. the 10m comsol cable from office works at $70 is known by many on here to work perfectly with 4k. i use it myself https://www.officeworks.com.au/shop/officeworks/p/comsol-high-speed-hdmi-cable-with-ethernet-10m-cohdmi100 they also have a money back guarantee if it is unsuitable. You don't need to spend a fortune on a fibre optic cable.
  15. change the tv output setting to stereo
  16. i have had a similar issues this last week with a show on netflix, but only through one particular speaker. the left surround. never had it any other time. i stopped watching that particular serties
  17. I have a pair of S8 v2 that i picked up second hand a few years back. I will take those things to the grave with me . . . absolutely no-one is getting those babies
  18. thats what i do with my front of house tv. works a treat, no lag issues
  19. why not just use the streaming provider from your oppo or other blueray player and let the sound go through your avr. its much simpler.
  20. one of the other massive advantages to a projector that people never talk about is that with a tv . . doesnt matter what sort it is . . you get the blue light which causes sleep issues (it tricks your brain into thinking its day time). The reflected image off a projector screen i founds, doesnt have that affect at all. It really does not make sense to drop down to 85 inch from 110. 110 inch has a viewing size of 3.0688 square Meters 85 inch has a viewing size of 2.1808 square meters. going from 110 to 85 is a drop in screen size of 28.94%
