  1. Item: Altronics M4624A Power Transformer Location: Perth Price: $15 Item Condition: New Reason for selling: Surplus to needs Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: The transfomer was purchased as part of a linear power supply build. The item is unused and the pins are unmarked. 12 12 PCB 30VA Toroidal Transformer. Primary voltage: 2 x 120V AC Total VA rating: 30VA The transformer is “potted” in an epoxy compound within a plastic housing. Configured with 2 x 120V primaries and 2 identical secondaries which can be wired in either series or parallel. Being PCB mount reduces assembly time as the transformer simply solders to the PCB. For extra stability and mechanical reliability the transformer can be secured to the PCB with a self tapping screw. https://www.altronics.com.au/p/m4624a-powertran-12-12-pcb-30va-toroidal-transformer/ Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  2. If someone could create a "how to" guide... it would be good. If it could be installed on a raspberry pi.. even better.
  3. If TVs were subsidised it might have been of some help. But since that ship has sailed... Lets petition for subsidies towards the Playstation thats about to be released. We dont want Sony leaving now do we.
  4. The NS1000 i heard was powered by a TPA3255 class D amplifier (i think its a 3255) and it sounded impressive. If it was at a shop, it would be "best to leave the wallet at home - impressive".
  5. Given that the author has been led to accidentally and irreversibly delete her digital library... A 10 easy steps on how to back up data would better serve her readership.
  6. This is good. I dont have the time to rip the rest of my collection at the moment.
  7. I have not heard that model of KEF but had the recent pleasure of listening to a stock NS1000. The NS1000 (with room and electronics) was quite something. I will hold off from buying any more hifi as i'm out of room (bigtime). Despite not having the room to properly stage them and against domestic ideology, if anyone is planning on getting rid of their NS1000 in the pay it forward section, pls PM me.
  8. Clean install and add an update blocker. https://www.sordum.org/9470/windows-update-blocker-v1-5/
  9. Win 7 SP1 + office + AVG + (Firefox open to type this) = 51 processes (a few processes have been disabled). 2.72 GB Ram used. Win 10 (non enterprise) + office + AVG = ???
  10. Hi Ufo, Some time ago i got rid of most of my hifi gear and decided to start from scratch with learning amplifier tweaking / voicing and getting my head around building my own audio gear. From an internet forum / pub point of view its a massive downgrade. Now i'm down to the component level, thinking up designs and putting it all together. Over the last few years, i've been enjoying this hobby like never before. In hifi parlance, it might be the downgrade of all downgrades. But i'm having a good time and finally have the sound that i'm after.
  11. Hi Decky, The rated transmission distance is not consistent with both parts. As are the pulse width distortion and current consumption ratings. V(IH), ditto. The physical design of the port surrounding the waveguide is also dissimilar. The dust plug version seems to have a sleeve aound the waveguide which might not be possible with the flip gate item. The board looks to have been designed with a specific part in mind and it seems that a swap has taken place. While both parts are pin for pin (and mounting point) compatible, there are physical and eletrical differences. Someone was generous enough to give me this item and i'm just putting this out there for anyone who might own the same Breeze Audio USB - SPDIF converter. Respectfully, I'll leave communication protocols and effective bandwidth for another thread (which i wont get in to). The replacement item was purchased from ebay (eBay item number: 391813357096).
  12. Hi dbastin, I'm using a "diy version" of the SOTM ethernet filter in an aluminium enclosure. The isolation of the chassis is also a DIY effort. My router has a power filter at the DC input. All cables are Cat6a rated (from altronics). Similar to the pic below, i'm also only using 2 of the 4 twisted pairs.
