Re: Music.

I don't think there is anything to laugh at there Steve. Your system impresses the pants off me :dance: You must be a happy chappy having got to the destination. I wish I could put ornaments on the top of my speakers but it can't happen (for obvious reasons). Cheers Stu. With the casual audiophile ...

Re: Music.

The system below gives me more musical pleasure than anything I’ve had in 45 years of messing around with hi-fi: 4050D737-6481-470A-9578-7583F2E7DC11.jpeg The self-designed and built amp and single driver speakers, plus BTE Lenco, with ancient SME arm and even more ancient Shure M55E cartridge, is t...

Re: Opinions on how the Government have handled the coronavirus outbreak

Never underestimate the stupidity, ignorance, and the ability to ignore expert medical advice, to be found in vast numbers of the British public. They may, eventually, find a cure for COVID-19, but they'll never find a cure for stupid. People are being told in no uncertain terms that "this will kil...

The LP12 should have gone to “carousel” when it reached 30. :lol:

Re: Doc modding Marantz imperial 7

Another quote from Roy. I love this bloke.... ...I wish to add that far too many audiophiles are distracted by technology or even totally fascinated by it. It completely occupies their minds, which contents them. These same people always describe how much better their music 'sounds' by its increase...

Re: Doc modding Marantz imperial 7

Excellent stuff, that was Stu. :guiness; I love my single-driver, triple-cone Fanes and early on, he puts into engineering terms, what I’ve always loved about the drivers I’m using at the moment. Only problem for most people is the very lengthy run-in time. It takes a couple of years at hi-fi rather...

Re: Is it OK for the government to knowingly break international law?

With this latest jape, Johnson is managing to alienate new Brexitty MPs, the nutters of the ERG, and even old 'moderates' who were clinging on (like Howard). Early next year, by the time we see the reality of the Brexit Johnson is currently lining up to be the deal we all wanted, finally 'done', the...
