It is a rather big project and quite expensive in terms of dosh and time but I do like a challenge.

I haven't had a diy thought for many weeks. That's down to having a very poorly mum, a Chinese virus and work has gone completely mental. It's a growing business ya narr.

I have had no inkling to do any diy audio at all. Not sure when i will get the urge or time. Just not interested at the moment.

When the time is right, the urge will return.

Until then, don't let it worry you.

Stu, don't bother with hifi - you have more important things to concern you.

As do I, my father (87) isn't doing to well at the moment.
