  1. 🤣 Well, I can claim the 3 decades (plus) of tinkering. I don't have a proper Head-Fi setup. I do have Etymotic ER4 in-ear monitors, which I quite like, but don't have a great headphone amp.
  2. Thanks for the update. Things were much more tight-lipped about the Dirac upgrade when I went looking a little while ago.
  3. Item: Technics CD-4 Quadraphonic System (Model SS-2900D) Location: Brisbane (southside) Price: $375 (offers considered) Item Condition: Fair to Good Condition The electronics work and the cabinetry is in good condition. The turntable needs at least a belt. I'm not sure of the state of the stylus. Reason for selling: No Longer Required This was my father-in-law's system. He bought it new and used the electronics (with a CD player plugged-in) up until less than a year ago. He's now moved into a small unit and the system won't fit. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash or Paypal Extra Info: For a collector this is a great opportunity to pickup a quadraphonic system in fairly good condition. It can be used a stereo system, and as I said you can connect analogue sources to play CDs or any streaming source. It will up-mix 2 channel to 4 channel but don't know how well it does that. It can play both discrete and matrix quadraphonic recordings, as well as regular stereo LPs. It has headphone outputs for 2 or 4 channel listening. I have done a quick check and all four speakers appear to be working fine. The system includes a turntable (needs a belt), AM/FM Tuner and amplifier. The amp has a tape loop for recording or which can be another input (e.g. CD player). There is an input for an electric guitar or mic, if you want to play or sing along with what's playing. There is a collection of nineteen 4 channel LPs that you can have with the system. I have a scanned copy of the manual, it's a bit faded but readable. There is a good Akai GXC-325D cassette deck in the cabinet, which fits nicely and is on a slide out base for usage. It is advertised separately, but if you buy the Technics system and want the tape deck and it hasn't sold, you can have it with the system. Specs Front Speakers: 3-way Rear Speakers: 2-way Freq Range: 20 - 30,000 Hz Peak Output Power: 144 watts at 8 ohm Overall System Weight: 64 kg Feel free to ask any questions. Given the size and weight of the system, pickup is preferred but I can discuss shipping if you want to make the arrangements for its collection. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  4. Thanks for the welcome. I've been playing with audio for decades and home theatre for close to two decades.
  5. I'm a Plex Pass owner running it on a Synology DS1813+. It is a little quirky and doesn't cope well with "doing things my way versus its way". But, it is pretty good for free, or even the Plex Pass cost.
  6. Any rumours on when (or if) Emo will get Dirac implemented on their processors? It has been so long since it was announced one has to wonder what issues they're encountering.
  7. I've been debating getting the 760ex to replace my current projector. The new firmware sounds interesting.
  8. Hi, I'm a audio and home theatre enthusiast based in Brisbane. I have a nice pair of Sonus Faber Guarneri Homage speakers driven by a Rotel Michi amp. The home theatre has Sonus Faber speakers, Bel Canto amps with a Lexicon MC-12 processor. Video is from a Sony projector on to a Stewart Firehawk screen. Richard
