Mick, go check out my mate's website krsipykables.com
He stocks some very good stuff and will do you close to wholesale prices as you're a mate.
yeah it was a little bit more that we were originally planning on spending, but it needs NOTHING done, and we both loved it as soon as we walked in. Going to sell seaford and dump all the $$ into the mortgage on the new place, with the exception of some we'll keep aside to replace all of our furniture with stuff that suits the new place. Most importantly, I've got a reasonable budget for a good audio system for that front room (with the fireplace).
Wow MickyD, that is just completely awesome! I am very envious! I would so totally settle for something like that if I ever move back to the burbs. I don't like big places so that is ideal! Maybe next time you want to upgrade i will buy it from you. Well done mate, very well done.
probably 90% streaming, 5% CD's, 5% radio.
Airplay capability would be a bonus, or at the least, an optical input for an AppleTV/AirportExpress. I've got a reasonable collection of 24/96 FLAC's, so compatibility with that is important.
I've been looking at the Pro-Ject Box stuff, which looks interesting.
I should move this to the H.E.A.T. thread, but this looks interesting (and I like the way it looks too)
Bought Cathy a new camera for her b'day today as the Fuji x100 has proved to be a point and shoot flop.
1x Sony Cyber-shot (DSC-HX20V)
Super duper zoom point and shoot. She's been moaning about the lack of zoom so I went for the longest, decent compact zoom i could find. Tossed a coin between this and the panny. Will see how it works for her in Oct. As she's off for a fortnight in New York with the girls.. All media presenters too.. I suspect what happens in new York should stay in New York.
Bought a new Mitsubishi ASX 2WD 2.0 manual, Silver, optioned with the Luxury pack (Leather, heated seats, reverse camera/sensors, bluetooth voice activation etc etc..)
Really nice car for the money, managed to haggle the dealers down to 28k OTR and got a $1000 eftpos card thrown in for good measure.
Looks like this
From my first few drives, the ASX is a surprisingly good piece of kit. Whether this continues into the future is unknown, but it feels good at the moment.
The luxo pack helps to make it a nice car, esp. the leather. It really improves the interior ambience. I had a loan base model for a few days for a test drive, and the interior felt very cheap.
