  1. Further information: Selling my As-New Yamaha WXC-50 as I recently upgraded my AVR which has in-build streaming. Great unit for the price, perfect for bringing your older analogue gear into the digital era or as the hub of a home music streaming system. Awesome DAC onboard too. Comes with original everything including box, so it can be shipped for a flat $20 price Australia Wide. further details can be found here on the Yamaha website. https://au.yamaha.com/en/products/audio_visual/multi-room_audio/wxc-50/index.html Photos:
  2. Yeah, it’s a little cheap looking/feeling connection setup supplied with the T758, I was sure it was something linked to it that was giving me the poor results. Dirac made a very big difference, and has really cleaned up the sound and improved the imaging on what I had without room correction. Very happy now. I’ll order the USB microphone I’ve seen you recommend in previous posts, as I am a tinkerer and will enjoy a decent mic to further fine tune things. for now, the changes made are more than suitable, but like I said - I like to tinker, but this mornings solution will get me by until the decent USB mic arrives. Thanks, again for helping.
  3. SOLVED: So, after reading and reading I finally found, and took note of the below advice from the NAD Support page. Pulling the stereo adapter connection out ever so slightly solved all my issues and I was able to successfully setup my first Dirac Live filters this morning.
  4. Thanks Marc, I’m not sure how I can check what version microphone I have but hopefully it’s something simple like that. I’m usual pretty competent with tech but troubleshooting this Dirac issue has done my head in. Are you able to recommend a fairly common/accessible mic that would be suitable?
  5. Tried boosting the mic, same result. Just checked Mic in REW and its working. This is what i am getting everytime.
  6. Hey Snoop, do you mean the Master Volume and Mic Gain? And yes, test tone run on each speaker and adjusted to be in the green.
  7. Hey guy's, I need some help. I recently picked up a NAD T758 v3 receiver and set aside today to do the Dirac Live room correction. After hours i still cannot get a measurement it will use. I'm using the supplied mic on tripod stand and have tried it plugged into the T758 (as suggested by NAD) and also via my PC. The issue: Every time i run a measurement point (Test tones from each speaker), at the end i get a Low Signal to Noise ratio error message, regardless of which point i'm measuring and what volume everything is set at etc (I've tried almost all volume options!). The rooms quiet. no other appliances are running except the amp and my PC. I also leave the room during the measurement. The one time i was able to get enough measurement points successfully recorded, it failed during the filter design stage with an error saying the measurements were too poor quality. I've tried another calibration microphone (KRKSystems) with the exact same results as above. I've also tried it through the iOS app. Again, same issues. Has anyone else experienced this or have some suggestions? Thanks.

  11. Hi All, I'm about to pull the trigger on the below setup for lounge room HT duties (and occasional Music, I have a dedicated HiFi system in another room For 2 channel so it’s not the main priority) What are your experienced thoughts, keeping in mind that the below Items are being purchased at a significant reduction due to the items being on clearance/run out. I imagine at full RRP I could do much, much better. But is there anything else I should be looking at for the money I am about to spend? Proposed System AVR - NAD T758 V3 Front Speakers - B&W CM 8 S2 Centre Speaker - B&W CM Centre S2 Surround Speakers - B&W CM6 S2 Subwoofer - B&W PV1D Power Amp - Rotel RB 1552 (powering B&W CM8 S2’s) All in Cost = $7,500 (RRP $12,000+)
  12. Thank you, exactly the guidance I was looking for.
  13. Hey all, I’m looking to move my TT away from my speakers/HiFi gear And place on its own rack... Is a 2m shielded phono interconnect too far? Am I better just placing the phono amp close to the TT and run a longer shielded stereo interconnect from phono amp to the stereo amp? Or is it going to make FA difference which ever I choose. *context = I’m not looking for audiophile/purist sound, just wondering if I can practically avoid degradation of signal by choosing one of the above cable run options* Thanks, TCG
  14. Hey All, Would adding a custom wood veneer to existing speaker veneer have any audible impact or cause issues? How about adding a wood veneer to the sides of audio components? Anyone played around with custom finishes for your gear? Thanks. (P.s Have access to a professional service (custom interiors/fit outs) so not specifically talking a home DIY job)
  15. Hey Anton, would you be interested in selling the stands separately? I’ve been chasing 700 S1/S2 stands For my existing 685’s.
  16. Very tempting at that price. What's your overall impressions of the 7872?
  17. Further information: Rotel RA-06SE integrated stereo amplifier. Special Edition Model (RRP $1199). 70W Per Channel. Original owner since purchase in 2012. Loverly Rotel sound that is very fluid and very musical - smooth without losing detail. Great Phono stage for your Turntable too. Well looked after and in really nice condition. Everything works perfectly but most importantly it sounds great. includes remote and manual (no original box sorry). The major additions to the Special Edition model all happed under the bonnet – better capacitors, improved decoupling of the power supply from input switching and buffer stages and some finessing of the moving-magnet phono stage made this a considerable upgrade over the regular RA-06 (RRP $999). Almost identical sound reproduction as my 2019 Rotel A-12 (RRP $1299). It just doesn’t have the DAC/Digital inputs of the A-12. Sad to see it go, but I’m sure it will catch the eye of someone who knows a great budget HiFi amp when they see it. Demo for local buyer or happy to ship at buyers cost. Specs: Speaker Terminals: Speaker A & Speaker B for multi room or bi-amping. Analogue Inputs: CD (Rear) Tuner (Rear) AUX 1 (Rear) AUX 2 (Rear) Media Player (Front) MM Phono + GRD (Rear) Outputs: Tape (Rear) Pre Out (Rear) Headphone (Front) IR (Rear) 12v Trigger (Rear) Minimum Frequency Response 20 Hz Impedance 8 Ohm Maximum Frequency Response 20 kHz Audio RMS Output Power 140 W Audio Channels 2 (70 W/Per Channel) Total Harmonic Distortion 0.03% Signal to Noise Ratio 100dB Weight Approximate 7.70 kg Dimensions 92 mm (H): 435 mm (W): 342 mm (D) Photos:

  20. That CA 1000 iii is a thing of Beauty! I’ve often thought of grabbing one just to display.
  21. I really need to setup notifications for new classified listings! This is an absolute bargain that I would be all over if I was quicker arriving on the scene 😋
  22. Hey Mate, I do agree with you to a point. I’m down the vinyl path mostly because it’s a medium I don’t have and I like to have physical options. I’ve given up on CD’s. I think for my needs and bang for buck Streaming is now of at least equal to CD in SQ and a far easier format to deal with. But I do enjoy a physical element to albums that I love (Thus picking these up on vinyl occasionally is my plan). I don’t mind investing in that. Also, this vinyl path was and is not intended to end up as my primary listening medium but more to have that physical option when I want it and experience something different to digital on occasions.... and a excuse to upgrade / tinker occasionally when I’m bored. Regarding storage etc, we both have a great eye for making things look good so it’s not a concern and there are great furniture storage options out there for what will not be a huge collection of vinyl. I’m pretty happy so far. I’m experiencing the benefits and shortcomings and I guess that’s exactly what I wanted to achieve at this stage. Happy Listening! TCG
