  1. Received the TNT tracking notification now. Will get the Elektra back on Nov 2nd or thereabouts.
  2. Anyway crisis averted guys! ☺️ Arthur just called me to say he's shipping my unit out pronto and I do actually believe him this time. Said he would send me a tracking notification shortly along with an invoice of costs. On the few times he's called me on his own volition something has usually happened and the matter has progressed. It's only been the many times I've contacted him to get a status update on where things are at that he's either stonewalled me, stalled or not even replied. It's really handy having a forum like this where you can get a lot of input and sugge
  3. I agree Kaynin. I actually lodged an ACCC complaint a few years back on something completely unrelated to home theatre and it was a slow and painful process. So I really want to avoid any kind of formal complaint at this time. But as the months keep dragging on am I just meant to wait around for whenever Arthur can get to it - perhaps 2021? It's coming up on nearly 6mths for Interface above and I'm already up to 4mths. I realise it's a small operation but surely he has someone else to delegate at least some of the basic tasks to, like invoicing, shipping and other administrative d
  4. Thanks for the vote of support deblur. I'm feeling a little better about the situation than I did earlier today but yes if nothing's happened in a couple more weeks then I think I will have to lodge a formal complaint. I really don't want to have to do that but by the same token I can't be expected to wait forever to get my property returned.
  5. Cheers Mark! It's good to hear from you as it's been a while. I actually have been selling off a bit of surplus hi-fi gear lately including a Yamaha 2600 I believe I may have bought from you many years ago?? Still going great guns and the new owner is very happy with it. Never had many problems with Yamaha or Marantz products touch wood. Yeah it's been driving me a little crazy but someone here at Stereo.net seems to have a personal connection with Arthur. He very kindly said he would contact him tomorrow on my behalf so hopefully that can get the matter moving along. M
  6. Thanks man for the suggestion. I'm not quite there yet but yes that is an avenue to be explored at some point if nothing changes. However if I start getting too confrontational involving official complaints then I fear I might not see my Elektra until 2021 if I go down that route which would be a disaster for me. I don't believe Arthur is actively scamming me as we have had constructive conversations early in the piece and he's been fairly reasonable about costs assuming he's being genuine, which I do. But I just can't get him to make me any kind of priority right now so I just nee
  7. Just an update on my Elektra situation guys. As I mentioned above I got in contact with Arthur and after a few months of back and forth finally got my Elektra to him for diagnosis in early September. Initially he thought it may have been a relay issue but ultimately it was a loose ground wire on the centre channel that was the culprit so a fairly simple fix. Anyway he's had it nearly for 2 months in his possession and I've tried numerous times to get him to issue me an invoice for his costs being mainly freight, insurance and packaging so far without success. He just do
  8. Yeah the HDMI board on the Onkyo died on me not once but twice! The first time it was covered under warranty. Onkyo/Integra did at least extend their warranty for this repair as soooooo many of their models suffered from this manufacturing/design f-up. But the second time it died it was past even this extended period and I couldn't be bothered forking out $700 to fix up that pile of rubbish. ? I did see a youtube DIY guide on how to perform the replacement on another Onkyo model to mine which seemed relatively straight forward: But obtaining the precis
  9. Now it's all coming back! Yep remember your Paradigms. Damn I really liked that Marantz receiver and can't even remember why I sold it. Probably because I thought I needed some new you beaut feature the Onkyo PR-SC5508 provided. Wish I kept that Marantz as the Onkyo prepro gave me nothing but trouble. Yes again correct re: Normandy. Was FIFO at Big Bell gold mine for 3yrs in the mid 90s.
  10. Yeah it drives my Monitor Audio GS60s beautifully! No complaints whatsoever. And as I only have a modest 5.1 set-up and nothing fancy that single channel problem really wasn't an issue for me. But now it's time to sell as I recently upgraded my receiver to a new Denon model (after my Onkyo prepro gave up the ghost due to the dreaded HDMI board issue!) and am happy enough with the amplification the Denon provides. I wanted HDCP 2.3 so it was time to upgrade the receiver anyway. Another Perth member seems very interested in the ET (along with a couple others) so it's grea
  11. Great to hear from you Mining Man! Geez I can barely remember that but then again my memory aint that flash to begin. Those were the days with epic arguments over Blu-ray v HD DVD and all those tremendous group buys that were organised on DTV Forum. Seems a previous lifetime to me nowadays. ?
  12. Thanks for all of the replies. I've called Arthur and he said he will get me a discounted rate on freight. He also asked for some snaps of the internals (as attached). I couldn't see anything out or order to my untrained eye such as obvious physical damage, disconnected wiring etc.
  13. Ok many thanks for posting this Marc. I will contact Arthur and see what he says. But if it's going to lead to costly repairs and a hefty freight bill shipping it back to VIC I may as well take it to my local dump then. Cheers Glenn
  14. Hi guys I have an Elektra Theatron 7.1 channel amp which I purchased as part of a group buy on DTV forum back in around 2008. However one of the 7 channels failed some time ago (2013?). It didn't bother me at the time as I only have a 5.1 set-up so I just switched over to one of the other un-used channels. However I'm now looking at selling the amp and it would obviously have much more re-sale value if all 7 channels were fully working. I'm not even sure whether its an input or output problem or with the actual amplification itself. The only symptom is that I get no sou
