    • Thank God for that, I could just imagine the arguments that may have followed if you'd have said yes!  I've had dacs that run purely off battery power before but the thought that the battery type could make a difference has never occurred to me until now.
    • Excellent choice ...mmm... tempted! 'A Change Is Gonna Come' must be one of all time favourite protest songs ever. As already mentioned, another ( prolific ) genius lost at a shockingly young age & who knows what he would have created or achieved. He had it all. The voice ,the talent, the looks, the mostly acceptance of white america, tv etc. But he was also brave & aware enough to take a stance, hence the above mentioned song.
    • At this stage I'd say if there are differences I can't hear them .  
    • Just because I am unable to afford it does not mean it should not exist or other people who can afford it should not enjoy it. The world will never be an ideal place , there will alwys be haves and have nots. Railing against this is a wasted effort. The article has a point and in my eyes proves it . Those people with the sort of money described often have little knowledge or taste in the things they buy . They are sold to and convinced beacuse of product cachet and percieved exclusivity.  Is a hand made watch better than a £10 China knock off ? Probably not and both will tell the time after a fashion but I know which one I would prefer and I can tell the quality difference . Is one worth that much more , probably not but I still prefer the expensive alternative. Music in anyones life is better and in many ways enriches their life. If those who are rich can be sold decent equipment that sounds so good they are encouraged to listen to more music then for me that is a good thing. People will be employed and paid for both producing , marketing and selling the item so they will have income of theri own to spend on music sytems and music for themselves , this is again in my view a good thing . The more they can sell and the better they can become at selling and making an Audio system an essential for the rich the more is spread around again I think this is good thing . High quality audio that can be engineered and sold without compromise of cost can make advances that all in the industry can hear and incorparate in all audio equipment and hopefully in a small way we can all get sonic benefits going forward . So yes I would like to see a thriving and vibrant super high end market with professional people selling to the very rich . Because if that succeeds and is reported and people in the mass observe it then maybe they will aspire to the best audio system they can afford if only to keep up with the image and more an more people just might get exposed to good sound and reailse it is an essential to your life like amny of us feel here.
    • Hi Gerry.  In my view there is no sonic benefit from upgrading the speaker wire inside your speakers.  Others will be along shortly to disagree, but that's my 2p's worth. I hope your road to recovery continues to go well.
    • Hi, I'm selling my Grado SR80e headphones that are boxed in excellent condition as I'm just not using them. I'm looking for £60 delivered by bank transfer
