  1. I'd take them but... lockdown🙁 When do you need them gone by?
  2. Not sure what models but interesting Whatmough if someone is in NSW(not me) Has listed at 157 and 450? ebay.com.au/itm/Whatmough-Speakers-Yamaha-5-1-250-w-Channel-Mixer/402592235879?hash=item5dbc5e0167:g:C44AAOSwwUlfbr~t https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Whatmough-Speakers-Yamaha-5-1-250-w-Channel-Mixer/402592245536?hash=item5dbc5e2720:g:C44AAOSwwUlfbr~t
  3. Thanks @Igotmearecord it's working fairly well now. Now I just need to get something cheap to clean the dusty old records I have. I even found someone in china selling replacement ear pads for the U70 headphones. Here's what I did as documentation for future if it helps anyone else. In the centre there is two screws that hold the lid down. I read somewhere that this is how it locks? So after undoing them I moved the position of the lid up slightly and redid the screws just looser and higher and this works and even the hinges are still good. Then wh
  4. Hi all, I just got a Beocenter 7002 from my grandma and have a couple questions. I was hoping someone here has come across one before. It powers on fine and I can get the radio working mostly. However the lid for the record player appears stuck? I assume its a manual lid not automatic there's some screws that lead to hinge I think at the back but I'm a bit unsure of whether that will release the lid. Also as this hasn't been used in 20+ years is there any maintenance that you would recommend? Thanks Jono P.S. Heres a couple links
  5. thanks @almikel i was wondering how people were quoting others and i couldn't find it in the FAQ So from what I understand is that rather than reflecting off the wooden floor reflecting off something hard would give the sound more punch whereas putting the anti vibration pads stops windows and other things rattling and resonating. So two different ways to make the audio sound better. Thank you for clearing this up for me. I have now moved the sub as suggested by @hopefullguy It is now behind my listening position in the centre of the room next to the wall an
  6. Hi all Thanks for the response everyone. My system is 4.1 i built it on a very limited budget.(although the rear speakers are just add ons which i got for nothing with the sub). I am running a Yamaha RX-V767. It is purely digital. PC audio out to amp via DVI with HDMI out from PC to TV. To hopefullguy yes the sub is not amazing but I got it under 200 which i felt like was a good deal at the time as this is my first system and I wanted to add more to low end without spending too much. I am interested in your reason for suggesting placing on something sol
  7. First thanks muon* ill definitely go buy those from Bunnings. Second for A.I.M. here you go a couple images to help you understand what I am working with the T.V. is at the bottom of the room layout. It has to be lounge and dining so the couch is halfway into the room with the dining table on the other side. The speakers are about a metre in front of T.V (Sony 85" T.V. Wharfedale 220 speakers). Any other room corrections you see would be helpful. When you say set controls do you mean temporarily set crossover lower? Should I unplug all other speakers?(They are bananas
  8. Hi all I need to work out where best to place my subwoofer. Its a wharfedale powercube 12+ as its downfiring and has twin rear ports I am wondering what the best way to do it is. If I move the couch out of the way and place it there won't the room acoustics differ? Especially if the couch is still in the room Also what is the best song/ sound file to play to test the sound? I have it connected to HTPC so file can be online Thanks Jono P.S. If anyone knows where to buy a cheap replacement phase switch please let me know
  9. If anyones looking for a cheap sub in NSW i spotted these 10 and 12 inch Wharfedale for $150 each https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/WHARFEDALE-POWER-CUBE-10-INCH-SUB/233780656906?hash=item366e69bb0a:g:R8YAAOSwN4Zfr1Iy https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Wharfedale-Powercube-12-Subwoofer/303840711077?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D8702065e3ef6472bb8b36758fe92661b%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D5%26rkt%3D15%26mehot%3Dnone%26sd%3D224307335976%26itm%3D303840711077%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057%26brand%3DWharfedale&_trksid=p2380057.c10067
  10. Thank you I found one the right size and solidly built on gumtree got a cracking deal and picked it up today. I appreciate all the help and I hope you have a happy new year.
  11. Thank you for this. I rang HN they only had a couple at 1300 and 2300 respectively. I think ill keep trying my luck with gumtree.
  12. Hi all I just got an 85" sony tv and am looking for a stand/entertainment unit but as its such a big TV it needs and extra deep stand as the legs are approx 45cm deep and 155 wide. Im based in Melbourne and on a budget if anyones got any suggestions on where to buy such a thing Thanks, Jono P.S.I don't know whether this goes here so i'll ask and hope the moderator moves it if im wrong
  13. Thank you Irek Isn't optical lower res than HDMI and only 2 channel? (its EARC or ARC) (I forgot to mention I got a pair of Wharfedale crystal 40 towers free with the sub that i am testing for surround) Rug sounds like a good idea i'll definitely give that a go. Wouldn't buying a soundbar be going backward in terms of audio quality? Also why a stereo amp? is it because it would have a better DAC? I'd rather keep it to an all in one system I think I might try getting a centre speaker if there's any good sales or if someone here's selling one at a
  14. Hi all I will start off by saying I'm new to all this and have no idea what i need whether it be room treatment new speaker or just a better DAC. I built my system on a budget and it is as follows. I have a pair of Wharfedale 220 bookshelf speakers with a powercube 12+ and a yamaha rx-v767 amp. I just recently got a new sony x900h and as my amp doesn't do 4k I have my PC going to TV then to amp through ARC all via HDMI. My issue is speech and mids seem quiet and/or muffled. In my old rental i didn't have this issue. This is where the question of room correction
  15. Hi, New member from Melbourne looking for advice on room correction and or centre speaker selection Thanks Jono
