  1. Whilst physical media is not bound for the Smithsonian yet, streaming has taken off in a big way and you can have your ice cream in many different flavours now.. The current main players in this world of movie streaming are 1 - Apple TV and the iTunes ecosystem 2- Google 3- Amazon Video So, the million dollar question is are they all the same? Well a friend and I decided to do an informal comparison. He had access to VPN and we could use all three apps on my Sony, which can do very good HDR and Dolby Vision playback. It’s a light canon and you can read about my review below. https://peteswrite.blogspot.com/2019/09/apple-tv-vs-movie-anywhere-vs-amazon.html Also when we were comparing HDR vs DV, there was a difference... What about you? Do you feel the same?

  9. So earlier this week I received delivery of a Luxman L-590AX. I plugged it in and started listening via my Apple TV ( => W4S Remedy Reclocker => Audio GD NFB 2.1)... then my ears started hurting with a sharpness in the treble. Thought, no worries, must be a bad recording, glad the Luxman has adjustments and tried the treble adjustment. Nup. I was thinking... oh no! This is an expensive mistake. Album after album was unpleasant to listen to... But then I put a CD into the Oppo BDP-93 (which follows the same path as the Apple TV) and then suddenly my world was right! Phew! Turns out even with a re-clocker cleaning up the Apple TV, it was making a mess of my music! I heard that it down samples most of the music before streaming, but not heard the reality of how it was changing the music until now. Turns out that my tube amp was just very forgiving I guess - tight bass, warm mid's, laid back highs. The Luxman across the board is very revealing! Has anyone else had this experience with an Apple TV (Gen 3 Revision A)? So now with the source of the issue diagnosed I started investigating alternatives. The decision was jump to the Auralic Aries, Sonore Rendu or even PS Audio Directstream with Bridge or go for something cheaper. Let's face it, I can't afford this kind of upgrade and I stumbled on the Bluesound Node. I was surprised to find it also supports Spotify Connect. I'm not sure why this unit hasn't got more airtime as it is excellent (I note a few people complain about the 90-100K cap on files).. A note in the box promised they are going to be releasing DSD support on top of the 24/192. Overall, I'm impressed. The treble now has more clairty, the sound is easier on the ears. I'm tempted to get another when I've got the money in order to create some multi-room audio. Pros of Bluesound Node: Optical out; Firmware Updates to offer improvements; 24/192 resolution; accepts a USB drive; iOS/Android/Windows/OS X apps; Spotify Connect; Hi-Res streaming like Tidal Cons: No DLNA support (yet); interesting form factor; not quite the detail resolution of Auralic Aries I'd highly recommend it for anyone looking for a budget streamer to play their music off a NAS or computer. I've not compared the analog out on the Bluesound Node, nor the sound before using the Remedy Reclocker... Maybe this is the perfect companion to a budget DAC?
  10. Hi Guys … I have just purchased a Samsung Soundbar (HW-H551 for $229 from the Good Guys) and need some advice on how best to connect Foxtel, SD TV, Apple TV, use the Blu-Ray player I have and replace the home theatre speakers with the Samsung Soundbar. My set up is (including links to manuals for others that have been looking for them): - Panasonic 42" TV TH-P42G10A. Link to manual Refer p44-45 for connections diagram - Foxtel IQ2. Link to manual Page 80 for diagram - Apple TV2. Link to manual - Samsung Blu-Ray DVD player (part of the Home Theatre set: HT-BD1252W). Link to manual: Page 15 for diagram - Samsung Soundbar HW-H551. Link to manual. Page 14 for diagram. - Logitec Harmony One remote control. Link to manual I'm hoping to have all sound go through the Soundbar … grateful for any tips! Thanks in advance! Cheers, deers and happy-new-years from hurmeez and two bob

  12. I hope this is the correct forum to post this. For some time I've had the following pieces of equipment that played nice together: Apple TV3 Samsung LA32B650 TV Panasonic SA-HT15 AV Control Receiver (yeah, I know it is old but it works) Apple TV was connect to the Samsung TV with an HDMI cable. Apple TV was connect to the Receiver with an optical cable. Samsung TV was connected to the Receiver with an optical cable. Apple TV had audio output set to Dolby Digital and 16 bit. If I played 5.1 content on the Apple TV, I would 5.1 output through the Receiver when the Receiver was set to either the Samsung TV or the Apple TV as input. i.e. the Samsung TV was doing passthrough (I think that's what it is called). All good... until we replaced the TV. I now have a Samsung UA60F7100AM TV. All I did was to swap the old TV out with the new one. Cabling stayed the same. Now I get no sound on either the Samsung TV or passed through to the Receiver (when the Receiver is set to the TV). It works fine directly from the Apple TV to the Receiver (it is just not all that convenient for various reasons that I won't go into here). If I switch Dolby Digital off on the Apple TV, I get stereo sound on the TV and passed through to the Receiver. With the Apple TV set to Dolby Digital ON, stereo content plays fine on the TV and is passed through to the Receiver. Is it possible to get the new Samsung TV to work like the old one did? If so, what settings would I need to change?
  13. Since I have taken delivery of a smart TV and additionally adding Apple TV I have noticed that my TV viewing habits have changed in such a way that my RF Input socket is almost redundant. How terrible is that. A whole new world of entertainment is now at my disposal when I want to watch it. It does make one wonder what the TV landscape will look like in 20 years time. And whilst on the subject kudos to Apple for their wonderful product, truly amazing, the Apple TV works flawlessly and it is so simple to use. What to do with my RF input socket?????
