  1. There is not too much I can say about this player. It is Blu Ray multiregional, plays anything you throw at it including SACD and the build quality is superb. They do not come up for sale very often and are still considered by many to be OPPO's best player. The condition is excellent. I am looking for a good quality set of floor standing speakers for trade, please.

    Cassette Deck service and belt change

    I am not sure if it will or not but been told that after so many years the rubber belts deteriorate.

    Cassette Deck service and belt change

    Anyone?
  6. Is there anyone on the WAM that can service a Technics RS-X501 cassette deck. I should own one pretty soon but I am not sure if I am confident enough to change the belts etc.

    Has vinyl become mainstream?

    Just in the process of obtaining one myself. It is a nostalgia thing for me and adds another dimension to audio in so doing keeping a little of the past alive. Some of these cassette decks look stunning even by today's standards. Also, I am told some cassettes can sound great, but I doubt anywhere as good as vinyl or cd.

    Wanted, Cassett Deck

    Resurrecting this thread Ok, this is just for my own nostalgic reasons but I would love if someone has a cassette deck going very cheap, as I can remember all those dials and things giving great fun and finding them hypnotic in the past. My budget is tiny (about £20 tops) due to Vinyl overspending and just losing my job. Can anyone help me out with something decent and preferably in a black finish? PS I have some Yes albums I can maybe swap for one, Tales, Relayer, Close To The Edge, Fragile all in very good + condition.

    Wanted, Cassett Deck

    Back on the market looking for a player. Around £20 tops. Not much I know.
  12. I can highly recommend these cables if you need any more: https://www.amazon.co.uk/AmazonBasics-High-Speed-HDMI-2-0-Cable/dp/B014I8SIJY/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1547384329&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=hdmi+cable&psc=1
  13. How old was the HDMI lead you are using? Is it the latest standard, HDMI 2?
