Says something about retention. Should I be worried?

Do you know where they are now?


Apparently I will have to wait until Monday. I don't seem to be getting mail as it seems my brother is getting mine somehow. It's at his office.

Oh, must be an unrelated issue then. The last two LD lots I've gotten from Japan have spent an awful long time just sitting there before even leaving the country and I don't know why.

You won't regret it. I would hate being without central ac.

My AC system is from the early 90s and still works like new. It’s all permanently installed stuff though. I’m not sure what kind of AC is normal in NZ. I know in Asia those portable things are the norm.

Yeah I can't live without ac. 20 or more years ago a couple of fans would suffice but I hate anything around 30c or more, above 40c is just crazy but it does happen unfortunately.

When I got this place it already had a Panasonic split system, all I've done is put new filters in a few times. This house isn't huge so it does the job.

We run wall mounted Heatpump/Aircon units mostly here. Just wanted something more quiet and efficient. Are you in asia?

most apartment buildings (what Americans call condos) in Australia have ducted systems to each room or a split system on the wall. Generally the better buildings have ducted.

Here in the states we have a lot of portable window mount units here but if your house is worth over a certain amount generally the AC is integrated with the forced air heat. So the condenser and compressor are a big thing outside with insulated lines going to the evaporator which is in the furnace. At this point they are more like industrial grade stuff and you need a guy to install them. They cover the whole house though of course and they last almost forever.

They suck a lot of juice but F SUMMER. I seriously hate the heat so much...Michigan has a rep as being a “cold” state since the winters are occasionally sub zero. People often forget that breaking 100 in the summer happens also and being on a giant peninsula means humidity can be almost Florida bad at times.

This time of year right now is the best.

Sorry to derail the highly interesting aircon convo :roll:

Got a good deal on a sight unseen Sony PHA-2 Headphone amp from Sofmap. Cheapest price I'd seen (just north of 10,000yen) and have seen cosmetically trashed ones for 20,000 yen plus. This will be my desktop DAC/DSD decoder and I can put my recently acquired ZX300 walkman on full time portable duty instead of desktop DAC (wasn't happy with cycling the battery so much on the 300), sounds great, possibly better than the ZX300:

My 2019 walkman carry, that blutooth remote is a sorry excuse for a remote compared to the old inline stuff, took me ages to figure out how to rig it, went with a short lanyard that I can loop around on itself onto any hook or loop on a jacket or bag:

Not a purchase as such, but my replacement disc arrived today from Roadshow Films :D
It's for my Doctor Who Season 18 BD set (bad audio authoring on disc one).
