  1. Past hour
  2. Its mine, and not too valuable to get precious about. It's not like a gtr. I drove gtr on track never on road. It's was bonkers fast but heavy. Tuned R does everything to 80 same, but it's smaller, lighter and easier to place. Everything feels very accessible and it's very dual personality: dull cruiser softly sprung to B road rally hero. BMW 1 and 2 series has that lovely 6 pot thing going, but the styling lost its way and interior space poor for a family hatch. I spend 250£ a year insurance, a set of tyres £600 after12000, £100 a year 3 year service plan , plus depreciation. I can't. Think of anything else that can pop 60 so quick, dispatch a B road so easily, but also do family hatchback duty so well. am toying with replacing with updated model or going for forthcoming 400hp RS3 saloon. performnce vs cost has never been so cheap
  3. I noticed a few comments in reviews about it not working but decided that as it was just what I wanted it was worth a try. Its worked perfectly for me on a couple of PCs, but it is obviously system dependant so buyer beware.
  4. Today

  7. Naim's new Uniti Core HDD Music Server Naim's new Uniti Core HDD Music Server is coming soon to Musicraft (Derby) Uniti Core represents the essence of digital music. It is a seriously powerful machine that will allow you to rip your entire CD collection, store up to 100,000 tracks, serve files to Uniti all-in-one players or other Naim streamers and create a back-up for all of your music. You can also use Uniti Core as a standalone digital source – simply connect it to a digital-to-analogue converter or an amplifier with digital inputs and control playback via the Naim app. Uniti Core is a fuss-free, no-compromise solution to ripping, storing, cataloguing and playing your entire music collection. Naim's new Uniti Atom, Uniti Star, Uniti Nova and Uniti Core are coming soon to Musicraft (Derby) Naim's story begins with one man’s passion for music and weaves its way through four decades and a raft of iconic product launches to the present day. Naim Audio founder Julian Vereker MBE (1945-2000) was a racing car driver, entrepreneur and self-taught engineer with a deep passion for music. Spending his spare time listening to and recording his friends playing live in the 1960s, Julian found that playback on his system at home fell woefully short of the experience he craved. Not content with second best he decided to design his own amplifiers and loudspeakers, ignoring accepted wisdom and focusing on aspects of performance that made music burst to life. These first designs laid the foundations for a range of iconic and award-winning hi-fi products that would reach well into the next century. https://www.naimaudio.com/sites/default/files/products/downloads/files/Naim-DR_Whitepaper_May2012_FINAL.pdf A technical white paper on the Naim Audio Discrete Regulator technology You're a nobody without a Naim Under the Skin of Uniti Core The compact, yet powerful Uniti Core is the perfect hub for your digital music collection.

  8. What's it about ? Lions ?
  9. That's a blooming shame for these poor cats. I wonder if the perpetrator's motive is as much to create upset for the cats owner-providers. Either way, physical cruelty to the pussies or emotional cruelty towards the owners who love them, I meow to Bastet that the criminal be stopped quickly. ( Bastet is the Egyptian cat god and she is real )

  11. Something I haven't ( genuinely ! ) done for years. I'm going in for a repeat listen on the first day... that's how impressed I am by both newly delivered albums. Maybe, even 'blown away' by the 'Coma Divine' box SQ but both are really good. Bit pissed TBH so may not last the pace but I'm willing to give it a damn good try !
  12. You'll have to go into the coding algorithms to answer those questions, the information exists in Fraunhofer Institute documents, but I've found them impenetrable, and consequently not helfpul to understanding how it works. One better but still quite dense explanation is here: http://arstechnica.com/features/2007/10/the-audiofile-understanding-mp3-compression/ Hope this helps. I've found that understanding MP2/3/4 encoding and decoding is like understanding Quantum mechanics. When I think I understand it, I clearly don't! S
  13. Cool. I was going to do another year visiting but I thought why not get in amongst it. Especially after the effort I saw others put into it last year. I've heard a lot of stuff now over the years anyway, but theres still a few this year I wouldnt mind having a look at, if there's time.
  14. Yesterday
  15. I've been twice before, as a visitor.
  16. SALE

    Hi interested but waiting for funds by 1 Feb please keep me in mind if you don't sell thank you
  17. King Crimson 'Beat' (1982- LP)
  18. I know how you feel Spider, but it was only my first year visiting last year as well. I'm looking at it as spending a bit of quality time with my hi-fi , I love it but hardly get around to it, always something else gets my attention. Must remember to do the same with the kids someday How many times have you been to the show before exhibiting Spider?
  19. I suggest you download and print one from vinylengine, then get a keystrobe. Cheap and accurate.
  20. Notwithstanding that a piano is not actually simple, if I encoded middle c with 128k - just how much signal will be lost next to the original ? Have you any data to support the answer ? I envisage that a cd recording of said instrument would be identical to the MP3 version. (beethovens 9th choral finale is another question altogether)
  21. Relax , The details will be on the WEB
  22. got a sony 930 qs thing just as a spare always wondered why it dont work when its flat but when ya left the front up 5 odd inch off it gos ?
