Re: Some random thoughts

What you have presented is a manifesto for stagnation . The key element of life is dialectical materialism. Idea a and idea b collide giving birth to idea c. Is how we progress ,it is the very meaning of life wether it ideas of vaccines or hifi. The process is the point. If you are arguing about hif...

Re: Another DIY SS Amplifier with NVA Boards

These are you try ,you decide questions and answers.

Ps. This is somebody's thread. I think you may get more response if you started your own.

Re: Is class D Hi-Fi?

As some one who as now built over 20 different amp boards with different transformer va and different capacitor values in the past 18 months. I'm a firm believer in the less components in the signal path is better. Also a large simple power supply is optimum. But I'm sceptical on the actual circuit ...

Re: Most expensive audio mistake / regret

That's funny I keep being told vintage cd players sound ace .

These are the same I owned and we're shit.

Digital is still digital. Its fine as long as you don't hear vinyl.

My record collection is 90% rock music from 1970 to 1985. With my lp collection there is no contest

Re: Valves. Hot air or something init.

It appears most of the things written about valves is bullshit.

A good valve amp is not just about the valves used .

So anybody care to offer an opinion on valves . Is thier really any difference between them or is it bullshit. You read forums and the correct va...

Re: Genesis Remasters on Vinyl

Invariably it robs 70s rock music of its life. The 8 remasters I have got all sound the same. Now a days I'm much more thrilled getting a mint original for $4 (my phone doesn't have a pound sign I wonder why) than by an expensive remaster Having said that, I may just buy seconds out on 45rpm remaster.
