Re: Missed an hour's sleep

Completely agree. UK should zone its time on BST. Surely Alba could introduce its own time zone for a few disgruntled farmers?

Re: Linn Karousel

All valid points Gents, but put a decent chassis and non sprung suspension/isolation and it turns it into a much more capable transcriber.
