    Jokes, old or new

    A little boy goes to his dad and asks, "What is politics?" The dad says, "Well son, let me try to explain it this way: I'm the breadwinner of the family, so let's call me capitalism. Your mother, she's the administrator of the money, so we'll call her the government. We're here to take care of your needs, so we'll call you the people. The nanny, we'll consider her the working class. And your baby brother, we'll call him the future. Now, think about that and see if that makes sense." The little boy goes off to bed thinking about what dad had said. Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him. He finds that the baby has soiled his diaper. The little boy goes to his parents' room and finds his mother sound asleep. Not wanting to wake her, he goes to the nanny's room. Finding the door locked, he peeks in the keyhole and sees his father in bed with the nanny. He gives up and goes back to bed. The next morning, the little boy says to his father, "Dad, I think I understand the concept of politics now." The father says, "Good son, tell me in your own words what you think politics is all about." The little boy replies, "Well, while capitalism is screwing the working class, the government is sound asleep, the people are being ignored and the future is in deep shit."
  3. Very very happy to hear that Iam sure they will continue to open up as Cnoevil suggested
  4. That's very good to hear. IME. Amps can take a while to settle....especially if they have been off for a while. It wouldn't surprise me if things continue to improve a bit....and then they will truly show their class and pedigree.

    Wammer's Album Club June 22/23 , Moby - Innocents

    I'm also disappointed in this, because I was proved wrong and the bloody first WAC has cost me money ! A couple of Moby style tracks which aren't great but the Souls / Blues / gospel vocal type tracks - A Case for Shame, Don't Love Me, A Long Time and Tell Me, the anthemic (great lyrics) The Perfect Life and I also liked The Dogs make it a very listenable Album. So, I agree entirely with Baz, the guest vocalists and their individual styles really make this Album. 3 1/2 stars and LP bought.Grrr !!!

    what classical music are you listening to now ?

    Symphony #1 from this excellent set:
  9. now, after a few days with the new amps and a bit of tweeking and experimenting with the volume and gain controls, I believe I'm getting the most from them... sounding superb! and yes they are expensive if bought from new, but thankfully I didn't have to. Mac
  10. In sunny San Leonardo-sul-Mare, maybe. In London that gets you the last guy's dregs

    Oppo sonica

    Hi Trouble and Strife, Did you get anywhere with your Oppo Mods? I bought one a few weeks ago-seemingly the last one in the country. I will mod mine at some stage. In with some decent regulators to replace the generic ones, out with those shitty opamps and in with some Burson fet opamps, out with the electrolytic output caps and in with some decent film /foil caps. It should be a different beast after that! David
  13. Thanks Dexter, your helpful thoughts on my advert are much appreciated, if wrong. In the meantime why don't you just fuck off.
  14. Three quid, that’s a cup of coffee (well in London it is) bargain, will be onto that myself. Enjoy Mick.

    FS : Rega ELA Mk2

    I've got their bigger brothers, the Rega Xels with an extra mid-bass. Fabulous transmission line speakers. I would recommend the series to anyone!
  18. Hello there Have listen to this at home with headphones, via speakers, and on the way to work and back Was hoping to like this album, but for me it has turned out as a bit of a mix bag, for my tastes it seem to go bad track, good track, bad track etc, until the last five songs, although the last track did go on a bit. I think the track Everything that rises is strange track to open the album with, and seems a bit of a filler track to me. Not keen on the singing on Almost Home and The Perfect life has started to get on my nerves now, ear-worm indeed. Its only when it gets to track 8 things start to settle down for me, and I can start enjoying the album. Stand out track for me is A case of Shame , other tracks I like are The last Day and Tell Me 3/5 from me. Cheers Frank

    Phone upgrade

    I have been blown away by how good the Xiaomi Pocophone F1 actually is. It does all I want takes awesome pictures and videos gives a good user experience for viewing online content it feels good quality in the hand as well (I have the armoured version). It did take me a little while to get used to android after being a iPhone user for so long its not quiet as intuitive. I will give a thumbs up to Xiaomi aliexpress store as well as the phone arrived from china in about 7 days well packaged and with minimal import duty to pay £8 I think it was. All in IT worked out about £100 less than buying the same phone over here off of ebay or amazon etc. My brother has a iPhone 8 plus and there is no way I would swap it for the F1

    Lampizator DAC Lineup Advice

    Whilst you are after info on Lampizator DACs, I would also strongly urge you to try and audition a Lector Digitube S-192. This is a seriously good highend tube DAC using ECC81s for sensible money.
