Re: Binge watching TV

Do you like all the Star Trek spin-offs, Fretless? With the ones that I've dipped into, such as Deep Space Sixty Nine, I've never been able to stomach them for more than 5 minutes. Too much talking. Not enough action. Unimaginative, cliched alien characters. As well as all the technical bullhsit in ...

Re: Binge watching TV

I've never understood the attraction of the Star Trek follow-on series and spin offs. I only got into Shatner Star Trek because it was family watching from ever since I can remember. And at the age of 4 you tend to like whatever TV is put in front of you. Although I never liked anything hosted by No...

Re: Binge watching TV

In the last 2 weeks I've watched Season 1's of Yes Minister and Breaking Bad. Yes Minister could have beeen set in 2019 and still be a commentary on the state of politics in Britain. Over the last 4 months I've watched all 8 seasons of 90 Day Fiance. Even though it's sometimes scripted or edited to ...

Re: Turn up the treble

I find excessive sibilance annoying. It makes too many vocalists sound like they have ill fitting dentures.

I also don't like it when well recorded cymbals are turned into Danish bacon adverts.

Re: Speaker placement, reflections, cancellations, modes - making the best of a bad job

Big rooms with a lot of furniture or clutter in them seem to be the sort of rooms that can house a variety of speakers with the acoustics not being an issue for any of them. For sure different speakers can sound best in different locations. The 2 biggest extremes that I have are my EV Patrician corn...

Re: Transformer Va.

The impression that I got with Richard's phono stage series is that he used the same signal path circuitry for the entire range. And that this part of the circuit was simple, had no transformers in the signal path and used good quality components, without going over the top and using a load of bouti...

Re: Listen from comfort 😱

It looks less comfortable than a Volvo car seat.
My back isn't shaped the same as the back support on that Oulton chair.

20 motorists followed this lorry, thinking it was transporting fuel. https://ichef.bbci.co.uk/news/976/cpsprodpb/18F4/production/_120788360_mortar.jpg He was on the A43 when he first realised he was being followed. "I didn't notice initially but then on the dual carriageway, I noticed nobody wa...
