  1. Strongly considering the 20 hr round trip. Wondering how these would integrate into a HT system comprising of Marantz/Elektra/KEF.
  2. From the internet. Can take a picture of the actual unit when I get home.
  3. Further information: Thought this would bridge the gap between my Yamaha AVR and a Marantz Pre/Pro I tried. It does improve on the Yamaha, but not to the level of the Marantz. This is the latest model with all the bells and whistles. It comes with literally everything it should except for the plastic sleeves the remote and power cable came in. Current discounted pricing online is north of $2k so get yourself a great AVR that measures and reviews very well, for a good price. Would much prefer and will prioritise local buyers and very happy to meet somewhere in the greater Sydney area. Can also ship if need be to the right buyer.

  4. Yes, but I have no interest in HEOS or MusicCast. I stream via Airplay.
  5. When I went through the upgrade process last year I stuck with Yamaha because the first one served me so well, and to be honest, I don’t have anything to complain about the new one. That was until I had the chance to try a Marantz Pre/Pro in my system. What a difference. I’ll admit, the Pre/Pro is always going to outclass a mid-level AVR, but I firmly believe Audyssey made a big improvement. At the first chance I get I’ll be moving to something Denon/Marantz.
  6. If I went back and changed anything it would be the Yamaha AVR. YPAO is pretty average.
  7. I started on my HT journey around 8 years ago. Up to that point I was using Logitech computer speakers/sub connected to TV via headphone jack 😂🤦🏻‍♂️ My budget was $3k for TV / AVR and 3.1 setup. Bought an LG flat panel for $1k. A Yamaha AVR for $500. A Yamaha sub discount from $1k down to $500. Monitor Audio Bronze bookshelves and centre for $1k including speaker cable. Then I broke the budget by a few hundred to get stands for the bookshelves. Had that same setup for 7 years and thoroughly enjoyed it.
  8. For $140 more I can get the Pro-ject T1. Would it be worth the extra outlay?
  9. I looked at those. The first one is a good option but not the right cabinet for WAF.
  10. After doing some reading, I’ve re-evaluated the budget up a few hundred. The Pro-ject T1 is top contender at $540 on sale. Anything better in this price bracket?
  11. If I do, all I could say is it works. Never used a TT in my life. Have absolutely no reference for what is good or bad.
  12. I really like the idea of getting a solid warranty. Thanks for the suggestion!
  13. Wife’s birthday is next month and she’s always wanted a turn table. She has this romantic idea about playing old thrift store records. My plan is to find a vintage TT/radio cabinet, restore it and install a modern TT for reliability and easy of use for her. Never bought a TT so don’t know where to begin. I’d like to stay under $300 and used is 100% fine. But what do I look for? Reliability, durability and easy of use are the priorities. Sound quality doesn’t matter as much - as long as it isn’t shite. This isn’t for critical listening to high priced pressings. Will be connected to AVR or Pre/Pro so MM only. Built in phono is also fine.
