  2. I listened to the Vivid Ovals and Giyas at a hifi show, just brilliant sounding speakers, although very odd looking They would definitely not suit my older style queenslander. errrrrr...
  3. Welcome MF. I lived in Bali for 2.5 years in Canggu/Umalas area, an amazing experience for our family! Happy to be back in Australia now though.
  4. I'm absolutely loving Al Green, can anyone recommend similar artists or albums of this calibre? Thanks.
  5. 25th (!) Anniversary edition just arrived. Excellent listening..
  6. It's an APC and Living End kind of day.
  7. I had a similar one where a friend thought the tops of my floorstanders would make for a great place to put his cold beer down. "I thought hifi died in the 80s!"
  8. One way I have found to fight the addiction is to identify what gear I want through demos & listening sessions and then jot them down in a wish list document. Then I setup my email alerts and wait 12 months or so for a second hand gear to become available here or ebay, or tradein deals are announced with my regular stores. I find it calms me down to know what my upgrade paths are, and that I have to wait for the right moment. Sometimes I have moments of wanting to walk into a store and slap down my credit card on something new, but mostly I find the above approach keeps that at bay. Then I can just focus on listening to music and getting the most from my current system until my time comes to upgrade. PS Does anyone have a Nordost Red dawn 2m power cable they aren't using?
  9. Is it the mind2 board with roon bridge and MQA support? If so I’m keen.
  10. Gapless playback works fine for me on the iOS/MacOSX Plex clients.
  11. I can recommend Roon, it is my home streaming platform of choice for my setup. I run it from a dedicated Mac Mini which plugs into the DAC of my 340i but you can use cheaper hardware, if you have any existing NAS its worth checking the specs and seeing if its up to the job and you'll need a Roon Bridge for your Hifi. I have an old iPad mounted near my hifi with the Roon Web App on it which I use for playing songs as I loath having to find my mobile phone every time I need to play music. If you get a similar setup going you can avoid needing to use a PC. Keep in mind you will need to also pay for a TIDAL subscription unless you have a great collection of digital music already. I found the missus and kids don't like Roon+TIDAL and they defaulted back to using Spotify because of the playlists and bigger range of music. So during a recent cost saving drive I gave up the TIDAL subscription and now use Roon purely for my own digital collection - bit of a shame but so be it. $13,99 for Spotify, $23,99 for Tidal and $14 for Roon each month was a bit much. Once Roon makes it easier to stream music outside the home (like Plex does) it will be a far more universal solution for me. Otherwise there is the clunky need to use TIDAL when out and about, and Roon when at home. It just doesn't have WAF so Spotify wins again. I'm using a Plex out of the home to access my collection, and Roon in the home at the moment .
