    Hi all,

    Thought I'd pop in and say hi from Perth, Australia.

    Been lurking for a number of months investigating a replacement "computer" speaker system to replace my dead Logitech Z4 system. Been making do with a X-230 system.

    Decided to go vintage and found on Gumtree:
    * Sharp SM-1122 amp.
    * Acoustic Research Holographic Imaging M5 speakers

    I also have hooked up to my TV/media centre:
    * Onyko SR-702 amp/receiver
    * MB Quart SP-1 floorstanding speakers.

    These speakers I got almost 20yrs ago and are still cranking. Have had to re-foam them.

    Anyway, wanted to thank all the threads I've read that have helped me with my decisions!

    I have a feeling it's the beginning of the road! I wouldn't be surprised if more parts get snuck in the house.

    Cheers.

    Thanks all for the greetings! This forum has been a huge help in working out the good from the bad!

    Hahaha, thanks. It's a slippery slope! I'm now looking at adding a turntable! :D

    Do your homework in the turntable forum, using the search to narrow down your quest.

    Thanks for the tip and ohhh I will be! I usually find something on Gumtree, then search if it's worthwhile, then get lost in the warren of looking at all the awesome stuff I can't afford :D

    Welcome from the East Coast.

    Must be particularly hard for you being the most isolated major city in the world. Shipping a TT from Sydney is almost as much as sending it from the States.
