  1. That's brave - not posting, starting the project in the first place! In a parallel life, I'd love to do something like this... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I live a few miles from Nick (fourlegs). Loved the 845s in his setup but would also love to hear them with my ProAc D30R's which sound superb in my very different all solid state system. If you get the chance to hear a pair, do so. Lots of people who bought their first ProAcs have stuck with them or with the brand. I'd offer to let you hear mine but my system is a bit physically difficult to plug and play with... good luck. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. SOLD

    By Jove you're right... I must admit I've always assumed that the bitrate of DAB broadcasts would limit sound quality vs say CD so have never thought of using an external DAC on DAB. T'will be interesting to hear your thoughts. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. SOLD

    T32 by any chance? Loving mine... Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. Is that the same as being right? Bl00dy hell, a lifetime first, and I'm only 57! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. This is complete madness. Thank you! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. Indeed. It's just a pity that if I unsubscribe from a car purchase conversation I might miss out on developments in the Measurements/Listening conversation it started out as. That reminds me. Did I ever tell you about my dog? We thought long and hard about names when we first got him and eventually settled on Tweeter... but his mates used to take the mickey mercilessly so we changed his name to Woofer. It took him a few weeks to get used to the new name but crossovers have always been challenging. Boom boom! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Is it just me or have we gone slightly off-topic? I feel only the most tenuous of links, and that is about whether Serge is being consistently analytical across all his significant decisions. I may unsubscribe. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. Thanks for the nudge, I just did. Most of it went over my head but it was thought-provoking at times too. The video included some inky blacks, which I thought was clever. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  11. Ditto, did the marathon whole Ring in a week thing at Nottingham Royal Concert Hall last year. Hardly an opera nut but it was a tremendous experience. Great to see so many familiar faces (and hear familiar voices) when I caught some of the first performance on BBC. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks Peter, if it ain't broke and all that... see you in 4 1/2 weeks! Nigel Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Thanks Peter, if it ain't broke and all that... see you in 4 1/2 weeks! Nigel Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. And how does that compare? Not looks-wise obviously... Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. Oui, exactement ça. That's the trouble with the French, they have no word for vehement. Actually, they have a very similar word except with silly lines over the "e"s; I think that's just their pretentious way of covering up the fact they've been nicking our words for centuries. Brexit will solve this, they will have to pay license fees. Let's see what that does to their outrageous use of le weekend rather than fin de semaine. Bâtards. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. I think you'll find the French is bolleaux. Mind you, my French is pretty basic so I could be talking gattox.
