TV is feed through the hifi, for some reason speech seems like its coming from their mouths. Even for the young people in the house.

On a stereo broadcast this also works.
This was the same for me in the previous house when the tv could not go between the speakers.

Having spent £140 on acrylic I've had to give up. (sorry doc) Having 1good arm as meant my desired level of finish is not possible with acrylic.

There are no acrylic amp cases for sale and so I've ordered some metal cases for my amps.

Other than making sure no live wires touch the case work is there anything different to remember.

Just when I think I am on top of my system - I buy a new component and things go awry!
So DQ I sympathise!
Can I ask all of you if you have had experience of a network player failing to lock on with a dac and producing stuttering music and the connection light on the dac flashing like mad.
I am making the assumption that it is a broadband problem over Ethernet that is not delivering the correct data stream and consequentially buffering.
How have people solved the problem?
Help!

I've changed my mind. I will stick with acrylic despite the difficulties of making it true with one arm.

Anybody want to buy 2 metal cases with heathsinks on either side. Ideal for mono blocks. Cost £130, your for £70.

Got them from douk audio. Never used but look quality.

Can you give dimensions of those cases please ?

And a photo of front, back and top view without lid on would help. (or a link to the sellers site)

Can you post, or is it collect only ?

Posted at cost. 1st or 2nd class Royal mail signed. Choice is yours.
