But of course. LG is on point man. Which LG are you referring to though? The 2017 models come with a 3 month Netflix subscription.

General Discussion / QLED vs OLED...?
« Last post by Nico V on Today at 08:30:23 PM »
So I had a Samsung 55HU8500 and I was extremely happy with it in all respects. UHD and all the functions I needed and, yes, faster than my iPad. In May - armed robbery. Pistol held at my wife's head and the tv is cassually carried out by the other 3 of the 4 kind gentlemen. In a very very very rare instance - quite shocking actually - the insurance pays out. But no more 8500 flat panels. Only curved. So I opt for the Q7LED. Tremendous dissapointment. Too much red hue in any mode (I normally watch in standard or natural mode). The dynamic mode is too bright so I never use said mode. But it can stream Showmax - the LG OLED can't  (multichoice exclusivity monopoly you see. I gave up repeat tv ( I mean dstv) in January 2016 and only stream over the 'net. Motion jitter and pixelling quality are really annoying. I did not see any of that on the LG OLED. My personal opinion is that the LG OLED picture quality far exceeds the Samsung QLED technology. Your views (excuse the pun)?

I just called down South now to remind about the cartridges, he had forgotten but has promised to dig them out.
Thank you!
The genuine crystal originals no longer work - even if never used - the crystals disintegrate, they need a crystal transplant to get them going.
They made a less pretty ceramic replacement:

He says he also has an MM version of the axial type.

Probably this one:


These are quirky in that they have almost zero vertical compliance, so cannot be used on a stereo record. On mono they are spectacular performers for the era.

  :giggle: you're obviously a dedicated uncle!

It was a fun day afterwards - And, even with being plunged into 'blessed' Nile water and later on rolled over injera (Ethiopian tradition), she didn't squawk!  The spread of Ethiopian food and decent beer, plus some good tunes (both Western and you guessed it -Ethiopian), friends, family and dancing made it worth every second. Also managed to get everyone bar my Brother and Sister-in-Law to drink Unicum - the shooter of the Gods

Resprayed the cabinet, cleaned up rest of Pioneer PL-6A turntable.  Amp recently from Gumtree,  bit of noise (acceptable) when phono input is used, but all together :groovy:
