Where the Divas Sing

Recommended Posts

thankyou for the lovely comments guys. mostly been incremental improvements and most of the gear has stood well the test of time.  Definitely some areas could potentially improve on though ... and may explore over the years to come, but not somewhere will venture unless can afford to ..which should slow me down :D

Al, ALL of our systems could potentially be improved. The test is, can you resist the temptation?

 

Well done mate.

Hi Al - perhaps the remote app for the iPhone may act as a remote control for the older Apple TV? I've never used one, but could be a simpler solution for you - especially if you're streaming music to it (though it has a HD so perhaps the music is stored there?)

 

cam your the man ! :D

 

the $30 display from hong kong arrived but didnt even work ! what a waste of time. but cam your idea of using remote app on the iphone/ipad to control the apple tv worked a treat :) even my wife is amazed as can control it from her iphone :)

 

anyways am very pleased with end result of apple tv feeding the 2ch setup with iphone giving full album art and control at finger tips :)

 

have about 200 cds loaded on the apple tv, but might take the movies and photos etc off it and keep it music only. I hooked up from the apple tv straight to the luxman's digital in via optical. sounds very decent this way.

Hi May I ask if all your gear purchased in Australia or overseas??

It seems like some of the equipment can only purchased in SE Asia.

Hi I prefer to buy local, think only two items not sold here are earmax pro that I got from uk, and the 5400es sony player which could only get from us. All else was sold on the local market at some stage, most owned for many years since new and now superseded so not something find for sale on local market anymore, maybe try second hand if something specifically looking for :)

thankyou yardley for the very nice comment. yeah am trying not to go over the top... it is a lounge room system after all ...a living space.

 

Though not sitting still, while yeah most of my gear clocking up the years and been with me for quite a while. a couple of items though due for update, one due in a month or so and another in months to follow. quietly keeping the excitement under wraps :D

Wow.

 

What a wonderful home of music and movies.

 

I can see your energy and passion for sight and sound and it is evident in every component being so innately high quality and chosen with the greatest of care for synergy,

 

Thank you so much for sharing this and I hope you continue to enjoy it for so many more years.

 

Fantastic stuff. :):party:thumb:

Excuse me whilst I stay seated until the moment has passed.

 

Are you considering a move to the matching monoblocs as well?

Looking at photographs of Al's set up is a bit like looking at a porn magazine.... You end up looking at pictures longer than you should, then your wife asks what you are staring at...

...sometimes I get the urge to say a pic of Rachel Weisz as it just seems more appropriate.

Back on track.. Al when your kids move out can I come live with you so I can enjoy your equipment too?:)
