Not at all. Sat is lower quality and more inconvenient.

k14:
Jaxson: Anybody know the model number of that jb hifi $299 Sony receiver?

Does it come with a mic for speaker calibration?

Could be just the trick to replace my onkyo but it would need to work with my average joe in wall speakers via a real calibration mic process.

STRDH750 is the model. Look on amazon for reviews, seems to be pretty good. Not sure on the calibration mic though. There is a plug in the front for it so I would assume it comes with one.




Was in JB hihfi St Lukes earlier the same price online as in store , had a stack of around maybe 20 that i saw

Better deals out there but...

MightyApe has PS4 Console for $488.

Not a boxing day deal as such, but guess it is in response to other retailers lowering their prices for their boxing day sales.

Finch: Any Spotify deals going around? Pay for 1 month, get 1 month free or something?


Buy one month get two free. https://www.spotify.com/nz/holiday/

Most of Spark's mobile plans have free Spotify premium so if you're with them for your mobile just have a look at the Spark site.

Even worse when ringing JB they cant check which stores have stock rofl. Not the staff fault, but pretty poor system and the fact you cant use Qcard online is bizarre. Not to mention the layout of the website.

Our own fault for being hungover, but still pretty annoying to say the least.
