  4. Thanks The arrangement is watched and unwatched DVDs. Initially I had unwatched DVDs standing up but sticking out a bit. Then one day a visitor decided to start pushing them in so I laid them down after that. As for organizing categories, those in the photo are English language movies & TV series. I have another shelf for German DVDs (my wife is Austrian). Music DVDs are in a cupboard with my CDs. Documentaries are in another room and I have a lot of anime shelved in the corridor to the bedrooms. I used to take advantage of the annual Right Stuf anime sales. This and the German DVDs is the reason for the all-region blu-ray player.

  5. Brand new forum member here. I purchased my first Carver amp, a second hand M-200T, back in 1990 and I was hooked. I still own it but I have not used it since 2002 when it was replaced with an A-753x. Despite the A-753x still working perfectly, last month I decided to upgrade to a Sunfire TGA-7401-230. The rest of my system is a Frankenstein setup of mainstream components, mainly due to the excessive cost of high end equipment in Australia. Some of the better components I have: Rotel RCD-855 CD player I have owned since new. Still works faultlessly. Thorens TD-160 Super turntable with Rega RB300 arm and Adcom MC cartridge. I also got this new in the late 1980's and still works but rarely gets played due to my replacing my LPs with CDs over the years. Speakers: Vaf DC-X mains, Vaf DC-6 centre, Vaf DC-2 rears, Vaf DC-1 used as front Atmos and a Monitor Audio ASW-210 subwoofer. Vaf is an Australian brand that produced both kit and complete speakers since the mid 90s. My speakers were kits and while they look quite bland, they sound amazing for the price. The have a great soundstage and sound better than a lot of more expensive brands.

  8. nice rig! I am intrigued about the videos laying down vs. standing ... never dawned on me to do something like that. blue ray vs. dvd's divided up? divided by music / movies?

  9. Got to www.JimClarkStereo.com Jim Clark Stereo , here in Rockford, IL, USA. Jim is a member here, and a super great guy. He's a personal friend of Bob Carver's, and a dealer for the current line of Carver Tube Amps. I know he ships all over the world, successfully. Contact him through the contact-page on that website..., ask about what it takes to ship a 275 to Australia... He's a straight shooter, and will give you facts. Then, you will precisely know what you have to save up for..., and it won't feel like the lottery ! 😉

  10. Thank you sir. So I'm running to Lightstar 2.0 on the ribbons, Lightstar 1 on the mid drivers and 625x2 on the subs. XLR's everywhere...lol

  11. Got the ribbons wired up. I found some military grade silver plated copper wire and some NASA space station silver plated copper wire on ebay, so why not. Also found some gold plated connectors.

  12. Thanks The turntable doesn't get much use as I replaced most of my records with CDs over the years. The records I have left are mostly titles never released on CD. My wife on the other hand has a lot of records but I won't play them on the Thorens because, prior to meeting me, she never looked after them. She played them on a cheap all in one system that used a ceramic cartridge on an unbalanced arm. She also sprayed the records with some silicon based record lubricant that only caused the dust to stick in the grooves. Playing her records sounds like dragging a stylus over gravel. (Note to self, don't let her read this )

  13. Thanks for sharing. Very nice set-up. Your turntable looks kind of sad back there, like you put it in time out. 🙂 Get rid of that TV and move it to front and center so everyone can see it !!! Seriously - nice system.
