  1. Nope, I used a step down and it was fine. Turntables are very low power consumption so you'd only need a 50w one for 2 turntables (plus a Japanese Y adaptor). I bought one very similar to this https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/50-Watt-Japanese-Isolated-Step-Down-Transformer-Voltage-converter-100V-SD100-50/252419714651?hash=item3ac5632e5b:g:mnQAAOxyTMhR8M1a&frcectupt=true and had no issues. Re: audio quality, I can't say it's 100% unaffected (but it almost certainly should be), but if there is any difference it'll be imperceptible.
  2. sick, watching now. the best thing about lockdowns is all the DJs who hardly ever put sets up online doing live streaming and shit, so much music to listen to lately
  3. probably about 2 weeks then. If you're affiliate/partner I think that's extended, but we need a ton more followers to get there. In future you can download twitch recordings by using youtube-dl
  4. https://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/3KrDzN just under 2k all up including a GPU. Add $200 if you go with the 8 core 3700x, $110 if you go for the ASUS X570 TUF motherboard, and $120 if you go for 32gb of ram.
  5. CPU: Are you going to be doing a lot of media encoding/transcoding, or want to hang onto this rig for as long as possible before upgrading again? If so, get this CPU for $515: https://www.scorptec.com.au/product/CPU/AMD-Socket-AM4/77564-100-100000071BOX otherwise, get this for $315 https://www.scorptec.com.au/product/CPU/AMD-Socket-AM4/77560-100-100000031BOX RAM: Consider whether you really need 32gb - if you're just gaming or other light workloads, you won't need more than 16gb, and pricing becomes much better. If you do need 32gb, I'd recommend this kit for $280: https://www.pccasegear.com/products/47633, otherwise if you can settle for 16gb I'd get this at $160: https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B07X8DVDZZ Motherboard: If you want all 8 SATA drives to be connected directly to the motherboard no hassle, get this: https://www.scorptec.com.au/product/Motherboards/AMD-Socket-AM4/77670-TUF-GAMING-X570-PLUS-(WI-FI) (though you can find it for ~$50 cheaper on Amazon au). If you want to save more, you can buy this board for $160 (https://www.scorptec.com.au/product/Motherboards/AMD-Socket-AM4/78473-B450-GAMING-PLUS-MAX) which has 6 SATA ports, then combine it with this 2 SATA port expansion card for $80 (https://www.scorptec.com.au/product/Controllers/SATA-&-SAS-&-M.2/64478-SST-ECS03), which saves you about $100 total over the other board. SSD: I'd recommend getting an m.2 NVMe drive given how many SATA drives you're going to have, getting an m.2 NVMe drive means you're not cutting into the number of SATA drives you can have. I'd recommend this at $100: https://au.pcpartpicker.com/product/XML48d/silicon-power-a80-512-gb-m2-2280-solid-state-drive-sp512gbp34a80m28, or the 1tb model for ~$180. Note: turns out that using an m.2 drive on any motherboard will mean that two SATA ports are disabled, so you'd actually be better off getting a SATA SSD like this for $90 instead if you wanted maximum storage: https://www.scorptec.com.au/product/Hard-Drives-&-SSDs/SSD-2.5-&-PCI-Express/71046-CT500MX500SSD1 PSU: What you've chosen is fine Case: What you've chosen is fine Drives: I'd recommend this drive for the best price/GB over 10tb for ~$500 after shipping - https://www.newegg.com/global/au-en/seagate-exos-x14-enterprise-st12000nm0008-12tb/p/1Z4-002P-00JV2. If you don't want to spend so much per drive, but lose some density in terms of the maximum TB amount you can fit in your case, I'd recommend this for $310 - https://www.shoppingexpress.com.au/buy/seagate-ironwolf-8tb-7200-rpm-3.5-sata-nas-interna/ST8000VN004
  6. It wouldn't affect the headphone jack because the headphone jack is being powered by the same electrical powerpoint as the rest of the PC or something. That link looks like its definitely worth a shot for only $6
  7. yep I have the same shit with a different sound card and monitors - not sure what the solution is, but I think it's somehow related to the powerpoints and grounding. I mixed the powerpoints and powerboards my PC and monitors were plugged into and I still get noise, but it's much quieter than it used to be. I remember reading into ground loop isolators but never bothered to actually try one. My suggestion is try plugging the monitors into a powerboard connected to one powerpoint, with the PC plugged into the other powerpoint and see if that helps
  8. new ones are about $500-550 for a pair, old ones are going for under 400 for a pair now
  9. maybe instead of full gold on buttons/tonearm, stick with an easier colour or stock and have gold trim. not sure how easy that'd be though
