    If I’m being honest, Duratone Hi-Fi would probably suit me more these days than it did years ago when my previous opinion was ingrained. I actually might go there today, I see they have Elac, like to hear what the fuss is about.
  3. 9mo, JB Hi-Fi overall is one of the better stores, apart from staff, I usually have no dealings with them (informed consumer ) I use JB for: Cd’s Blu-Ray and 4k Drone stuff Whenever the new TV is due, once or twice a year Security Camera’s philips Hue lighting (got lots) The odd household applience Phone covers any odd gadget that takes my childish fancy ( cosmo one Vector recently) list goes on. The other day I wanted to watch A Star is Born on 4K, but I was too tired to go for a drive, so I ordered online at JB and paid $10 for a courier to deliver it 3 hours later. Deal. Good store, good prices, just ignore the Millenials.

    @gmdb lol, my opinion is based from the late 80’s to present. I was into Yamaha gear back in the early 90’s, so Miranda was my place of choice.

    @gmdb that store has never been on my radar, I’ve only ever stepped there abut1/2 dozen times. Cracpot owners, and the store is like a 2nd hand thrift shop. .

    I agree, if I wake up that morning with intent to buy, what I want will most likely be in Sydney, Canberra is always “have to be ordered” and by mid afternoon, I’m back home and setting up. Plus Canberra will never compete with Sydney prices. The last 3 big purchases have been in Sydney, and before then my whole Hi-Fi shopping experience since the 80’s was at Miranda, but that’s not an option anymore for most reasons, mostly service and price. That place isn’t what it used to be unfortunately. Stores like the lifestyle store and Len Wallis are 2nd to none.
