D-250MKII/S: (8 matched pairs) 6550 power output, (4) 6550 regulators, (2) 12AT7 regulator driver, (4) 6DJ8/ECC88 small signal, (4) 7044 small signal, (2) 6FQ7 driver
  2. You want this (NuPrime IDA-8): http://www.mcleans.info/shop/productDetails.do?categoryId=1230&productId=261552
  3. Both tubedepot and thetubestore offer matched sets and deliver to Australia. https://www.thetubestore.com/power-tubes/kt88-tube-types https://www.tubedepot.com/products/tung-sol-kt150-power-vacuum-tube I've been leaning more towards tubedepot lately because of the 24 hour burn-in option - not because of the sound quality but because it weeds out early failure tubes in advance.
  4. My personal recommendation would be matched tubes from tubedepot. https://www.tubedepot.com/t/tubes/power-tubes/el34-6ca7 Huge range, they ship reliably to Australia, and they can match as many as you like at an affordable price. I also recommend the "24 hour burn in"; not because of the sound quality but because it rules out early failure tubes which are a pain to deal with.
  5. Replace all the toner cartridges: $487, replace printer: $267... I'm horrified by just how wasteful it is to replace the printer every time the toner runs out because it's more economical. This pricing structure speaks volumes about the business model, but it's killing me.
  6. Great to hear! I was really impressed by the Nuprime amps, especially at their price point. Their top model "evolution one" truly sounds like a reference item and is still a class D amp.
  7. Nations that use English as their second language infamously misuse English terminology either completely or - far more commonly - miss the nuance. If the title and description ends up using these loan words, then unless they have a completely renamed product for the English speaking world, it will propagate. Getting hung up about it is pointless. The question was whether it was a network switch or not and it is, and to them it's a "networking hub".
  8. I'm a Japanese translator... I explained it above.
  9. It's a network switch. They call it a hub to describe that it handles both ethernet and USB.
  10. Here's a little something I captured a few nights ago with my new hobby that was far more rewarding than fighting printers and couriers. I won't be dumping lots of these here though since it's off topic
  11. Fun sagas. Magenta Audio organised TNT to come and pick up the P20 to ship it for me with their corporate account (at my expense) but the driver arrived and refused to take the box because it wasn't on a pallet. So back to square one. I organised my big box shipper to come and pick it up -- Allied Express -- and then got the shipment label to print out and put on the box. Toner ran out... WTF. Of course I need to print off this label before tomorrow morning, and officeworks is closed for stuff like this, but will send you printouts which wouldn't happen in time. I started wondering who I know that I could go and get it printed out at - but of course that's illegal. Out of necessity and lots of googling I discovered I can fool the printer into thinking it has a new toner cartridge. Took about half hour and lots of attempts to make it work but by golly I convinced it into thinking it has a new toner cartridge now. Those things reset WAY too early anyway, so I'm going to start doing this routinely till I visibly see deterioration from now on. For reference, in case anyone else has a Brother printer and has to suffer similar pain: https://inksaver.co.za/blog/how-to-reset-the-toner-life-end-message-on-your-brother-toner-printer/
  12. Oh wow that's news to me. I haven't ordered anything from there any time in the recent past so that's a bummer.
