    Spice Girls: my daughter wants to see them....

    Buy her a VHS video and some VHS cassettes for her bedroom , then she can see them as they were back in the day rather than in older age , Lots cheaper

    balanced vs speaker cables

    If it is possible then I would certainly look to putting your balanced ic cables under the floor boards rather than around the skirting board . It gives you the advantage of shorter lengths and also probably moves the cable away from electrical wire , central heating pipes and the like which are often run either along or behind skirting board.

    balanced vs speaker cables

    Having your speakers 2m apart implies a small room. Is there not a way to get your amp and other kit closer to the speakers than 8m away?

  10. As long as you make sure you have a valid backup of your music (*), we can always help you with the technical difficulties if they arise. It still is your choice obviously, but there are good reasons why people prefer streaming. But, just make that decision when you get there, no need to hurry. *) Even without the backup you'd still have your cds, but having to rip them again would be terribly annoying.

  12. My interpretation of 'seeing' here is more about the interaction between the amplifier and the signal to and feedback from the speaker. I don't think that it is neccesarely about the signal being full range. But that really makes it my 2 cents.

    Jokes, old or new

    A violin virtuoso, while preparing for a concert, is struck by the appearance of an angel 😇 The Blessed being tells him : "Son, don't be afraid, I'll bring you two news, one good and one bad, which one do you want to hear first?" the intrigued violinist replies: "well ... tell me the good one first!" The angel: "When you die, you will play in the philharmonic orchestra of Paradise, with the best musicians in the world" the excited violinist asks: "but ... also with Mozart? Haydn?" The angel: "everyone, everyone!" the violinist: "with Beethoven and Bach?" The angel: "I told you yes! With ALL OF THEM" the violinist has tears in his eyes from the emotion and asks "well..now give me the bad news" and the angel responds: "The first test is tomorrow morning at 9" 🤣 😎 😁

    Jokes, old or new

    As a bagpiper, I play many gigs. Recently I was asked by a funeral director to play at a graveside service for a homeless man. He had no family or friends, so the service was to be at a pauper's cemetery in the Nova Scotia back country. As I was not familiar with the backwoods, I got lost and, being a typical man, I didn't stop for directions. I finally arrived an hour late and saw the funeral guy had evidently gone and the hearse was nowhere in sight. There were only the diggers and crew left and they were eating lunch. I felt badly and apologized to the men for being late. I went to the side of the grave and looked down and the vault lid was already in place. I didn't know what else to do, so I started to play. The workers put down their lunches and began to gather around. I played out my heart and soul for this man with no family and friends. I played like I've never played before for this homeless man. And as I played "Amazing Grace", the workers began to weep. They wept, I wept, we all wept together. When I finished, I packed up my bagpipes and started for my car. Though my head was hung low, my heart was full. As I opened the door to my car, I heard one of the workers say, "I never seen anything like that before, and I've been putting in septic tanks for twenty years." Apparently, I'm still lost....it's a man thing.

    Hi Nopiano I read this with interest, I can see that there are people benefiting financially at many stages but the article mentions money over music over and over, linn have been a company that is about the music (for the deeper pocketed amongst us) from the outset so I find it curious that the article barely mentions this. As a lover of music I want to access as much good music as possible in a fashion that suits my lifestyle but MQA seems to be vilified whilst seemingly offering so much? My £20 a month to Tidal grants me this access whilst offering “hi-res Hi-Fi” files AND MQA if I have a suitably equipped system so if I’m after the best sound at a cost efficient price I’m struggling to see the sonic downsides, only ones where various stages in the chain are being asked to upgrade and haven’t we all been here before? I find it an interesting debate!

  20. DavidHB: Yes that would be an example of "off the charts" but did not want to throw anyone under the bus. I remember when I 1st got into the hi-fi scene as a tween in the early 80's I thought $3k ($7,902.65 in 2019) was expensive but most of my gear seems to fall in this range. For comparison the phono pre-amps cited would have been around $16k in these 1982 dollars. That being said I always try to place value on the effort to design and build products. I also admire many or the "price no object" offerings and would hope those who do purchase them are for musical enjoyment. ThomasOK: What do you think of current production Quad ESL's? Worth a listen or are they too finicky? Considering listening to PMC or Harbeth. I have heard PMC speakers in a mastering enviornment.

    I think it would be easier to advise if we knew what your speakers are. Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk

    So let’s assume (correctly) that i’m stupid enough to ask, if we’re looking for the nearest true representation of the original isn’t this a step in the right direction regardless of your thoughts on marketing? I remember watching Michael Rodd on Tomorrow’s World smearing jam on a CD claiming it to be the future, weren’t the audiophiles of the day mocking it? (Just asking) ☺️

    Hi Everyone. Does anybody know of someone who has ribbon type speakers, such as Apogee, Magneplanar or Quad Electrostatics etc. ?? Someone is interested to hear a bake off at our event between the new Kii3 cone speakers and ribbon type speakers . . . I have a Krell KSA 250 which can drive down to 0.5 ohm 4kw per channel, so no need for a special amp to drive the ribbons, which I heard can be difficult to drive. Look forward to any ideas. Thanks Chris

    Any ideas or pointers to building a media cabinet

    You have such a diverse range of kit, I’m not quite sure where you’d start. For example, some people put their Devialet on the wall. Conversely most people leave a Krell power amp on the floor or a low, dedicated stand. If you had a system of standard sized separates it would be fairly straightforward, but I’m not sure there’s an obvious answer (to me)! There’s bound to someone with more imagination along shortly!
  27. I have recently found that my current speaker cables high capacitance is putting a heavy load on my amp. Substituting old nordost flatline gold 2 almost halved the load from under 2 to 4ohms. It also bought some much needed energy to the treble st the cost of a loss of detail and a shrunken soundstage. So interested in trying some blue heaven if anyone has a 3m pair (or close) they would like to move on. please drop me a pm if you have something suitable. many thanks 😊 Graham
