  1. My guess is that they renamed the non basic subscription from $17.99 to $23.99 a month. The basic subscription was the same as Spotify. If you add Roon for $17 a month that’s about $41 a month, $492 a year. Good thing you can VPN Tidal for about $10 still. Makes it cheaper than Spotify.
  2. 65” is a good size up from 45” and I had no problem with mine for ages at 5m for years. The 75” I got only seems a tiny bit bigger than the 65”. Eventually you might want bigger. Bigger is usually better
  3. Yeah I upped my access too. I can tell quite a difference from ABC HD to ABC24 and the other non HD tv channels too. They’re not great to watch. I might give prime another go.
  4. I recently faced this decision of whether to replace a 65” plasma with a 65” oled, or get a 75” LED. I decided to get a 77” oled. It seems bigger, but not as big a difference as I thought it would be. Good prices now on these. The Sony A9G I got was $6200, got offer for $6100 for the LG-CX. It is better than the Plasma (last Panasonic one) but Netflix is hit and miss. There doesn’t seem to be a setting to make it 4K, and when there was people said you are better off setting it to auto. Any tips on how to stop Netflix going to a lower resolution? My
  5. @wkliePeter is there any update on Lumin’s plans for Tidal Connect?
  6. Interesting tactic, however it may prevent you from gluing things on the wall later on.
  7. Further information: Flagship model from the highly regarded Australian company DEQX, rarely sold on here. This pre-amp/processor “does digital speaker correction, post-speaker-calibration room acoustics correction, has high quality in-built analogue-to-digital and digital-to-analogue converters, linear phase crossover and equalisation technology, network streaming capabilities and much more.” I sold my last streamer because DEQX’s inbuilt DAC with Roon was at least as good. The digital touch screen display shows a pic of the album you are listening to. T
  8. Further information: Top quality Ethernet cables. I bought these last year. Only moving them on because I want to get a better Roon server (I’m using my laptop at the moment, which is less than ideal). Price is firm for one cable. Please see previous ad below.

  9. Further information: I just bought these, but they are too short. Original ad: Photos:
  10. Further information: I used this with an Iso regen. https://uptoneaudio.com/products/uspcb-a-b-adapter Photos:
  11. Further information: This was used to power my original SMS 200, which has been sold. Includes cable shown in pics below. Photos: (Last is stock)
  12. Further information: Outstanding streamer and a big step up from the sMS-200. It is Roon ready, does Spotify, airplay, HQ Player, Squeezelite, connect a NAS or HDD. Highly rated by the Stereonet community in terms of value for money. This has a clock connector (cost $300 extra) so you can connect an external clock. Pls note it doesn’t come with a power supply. It is the 12V version. Buyer to cover postage and PayPal fees if required. Photos:
