  1. Ceiling paint

    It would certainly help to undercoat the bare gyprock ceiling. This gives your topcoat a far more even finish otherwise it can look patchy if you just paint straight over bare gyprock and the joints between sheets where flushing compound is used. This is a new build.
  2. Great little amp. Bargain price. GLWTS
  3. I did PM Kazz but have just noticed this literally up the road Could have for $300 I reckon http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/lakelands/radios-receivers/integra-dtr-7-8/1103604387 Decisions, Decisions??
  4. Was thinking umc-200 and maybe discontinued power amp. Or just grabbing locally a 2nd hand avr as per other thread Good to have a couple of options
  5. Thanks Chopsus Even before I receive this free quote I'm leaning that way unless pretty cheap to fix (doubtful) A 2nd hand unit with True HD and DTSMA and preouts for the power amp Worry about the "newer" formats when they become more established Started trawling the ads for this sort of unit last night in anticipation of going that way. http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/halls-head/radios-receivers/marantz-av-surround-receiver-sr6005/1104301766 http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/midland/other-audio/denon-amplifier-avr-3808/1092089350 http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/joondalup/radios-receivers/denon-hometheatre-receiver-avr-4310/1104388286
  6. "Secret" was their marketing term I guess cwt Will see if I get any more emails. If I do I will email back and see what the go is. Just because they are selling all the new stuff here should not mean they could not sell dead stock to whom ever they choose
  7. Not from Oz tiger, from the states. Not trying to get new, not even refurbished current but discontinued lines
  8. Big IF I did find some rocking horse poo - that would seem to be easier
  9. Does Emotiva allow Oz customers to buy refurbished units or old stock clearance items? I have had "secret" emails re these sort of sales. Secret to the extent of their whole mailing list lol Obviously the new stuff is now available here (with a whole bunch of people it would seem) Hopefully that's good for price competition on the new gear
  10. Would only be for centre and rears so that may not be too hard. My free quote Gumtree repairer wasn't at home when I called in there today So none the wiser on repair cost Cheap pre may be the go If my bd player had component in I would even live with good old Dolby Digital till an upgrade
  11. Will keep eye out for UMC-200 if repair quote is shocking. Only have 2 channel power amp. So could I use unrepaired Pio as amp for 3 or 5 more channels??? Thanks for the comments
  12. Some sensible thoughts thanks mello Unit is going in today to be looked at so no quote just yet.
