General Discussion / Re: Cambridge CX-A80 transformer buzzing
« Last post by stereoholic on Today at 06:51:50 AM »
Some more info. The supply was also changed by the council to a different transformer and a new cable and earth spike was installed to the db and prepaid meter, the buzzing was definitely not there before, or if so it was inaudible.

I notice my tuner is also picking it up on the AM channels, however playing around with the aerial I got rid of it. I also managed to reduce the buzzing to an acceptable level by putting a couple of books on the amp casing which seem to have damped it. I measured the ac voltage and it's now at 240v whereas on the old transformer it was at 230v.And no, I'm not under the influence..hic

Hugely tempted.

Meets all the criteria (shortwave) - but would this de-throne a magnificent sounding Rotel RT-950BX and also an Arcam Alpha5+ Tuner, both which pale in SQ performance when compared to my Denon TU1500AE?  :teach:

General Discussion / New AVR

Hi guys,

Long time reader, first time poster. I've been following the progression of Dolby Atmos, and decided to pull the trigger. It was a tough choice and quite a bit of research went in to it. To me, the no brainer ended up being the Denon X3400H - the buying ended up bring a bit more challenging. I ended up getting ready to buy from a well known online retailer (the guys in blue) which only offered one year warranty.

I thought it would be smart to do one last look around, and came across a company called "smart lifestyle", saw a JHB number and gave them a call. I didn't get an answer and thought that was it... A guy by te name of Vaughan called back withing 5 minutes and I was sold. Not only did he give me a much better price than anything I could find online, he offers a longer warranty,  was super helpful and delivered to my house within 24 hours. If it wasn't mentioned before, I can really recommend Vaughan and his company.

My next step would be to buy a decent set of speakers and probably a blu ray player (once I've figured out what will work best for me) - I'll definitely knock on his door again when the time comes.

- The Neon Demon has a fantastic soundtrack. Even if you don't have an appreciation for synthwave, it really is something else. Great film too.
- Tron: Legacy's soundtrack, entirely scored by Daft Punk, is probably the single most incredible thing about an otherwise not very good movie.
- Penny Dreadful had an excellent orchestral score noted for haunting strings, intricate piano, and some very nice percussion -- especially the opening theme by Abel Korzeniowski.
- Quintin Tarantino's movies are noted for great song curation. Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill spring to mind.
- The Fast & The Furious Tokyo Drift. Horrid film. Best soundtrack in the series!
- I, like most I guess, generally adore anything Hans Zimmer or Ramin Djawadi does.
