Re: Loosing touch with reality

I'll never be able to follow an "upgrade path" because I can't afford it. I don't give a toss what colour my hi-fi is, or if it's from China, or Mars. I don't care if anyone else likes it. My main system was a one-time best-bang-per-buck purchase and will not be altered. I love music. My systems all...

Re: Selling Equipment

When it happened to me I just kept insisting that I would be happy to refund the buyer plus pay any postage incurred by him when sending the CD player back to me. He blustered, sent a very blurry photo which may have been a screwdriver gouge in something that was probably metal (which was the clinch...

Re: New Site Title & Description drafts

My mistake then, and my apologies. I thought you were actively trying to increase footfall (for want of a better word) across the site.

Re: New Site Title & Description drafts

I think music should be included. It won't do any harm but, in the context of what we are trying to achieve, it won't be of any benefit, either. People looking for a music forum will not be looking for HFS. Discussion of music makes up relatively little of the content here. There are only 8 threads...
