    Is it just me?

    Since my wife is 10 years younger and has the better ears I helped her understand what reasonably good sound is. Then we blew our speakers so I put the old bookshelves back. Since then she literally persuaded me to find a decent pair of speakers as she couldn’t handle the not so musical bookshelves. Now 6 months later we have a full aktiv linn setup with a streamer and a streamer I do consult her on every purchase though and I’m a hard negotiator so she trusts my homework on the s/h stuff.

  3. Thanks. That's only about 6 hours from me(!) Unfortunately, ThomasOK is too far to travel to get any LP12 work done

  6. Hi jactac thanks for your post. The easy joint or compound was done approx 8 weeks ago. The linseed oil has soaked into the slabs, leaving the slabs looking really patchy. I did try wet and forget but it just seemed to sit on top of the slabs so I rinsed that as it dried really patchy which has never happened before, probably due to the oil.. I will try the residue remover, although not sure if it will remove the oil but worth a try. Thanks again.

    We have a Sky dish and aerial on the roof.

    Can't raise the aerial, it's as high as it can go, without attracting the attention of the MOD.

    The ‘end game’?

    New digital source and I'm done. I'm happy with something that does the job. I can't imagine the pain certain box swappers go through - buy good kit and forget about it
  13. I went to one of Ducasse’s restaurants in Lyon. Didn’t rate it at all.

    The ‘end game’?

    I reached my "End Game" maybe six or seven years ago having owned enormous amounts of kit and having been a complete addict for decades. I'm no longer remotely interested in hardware. Music fills the hole.
  15. I've done it, and I'd say that it's a bit more fiddly than you suggest. Positioning the tower of connector pins that links the daughter board to the main board can be interesting, and the PCB is covered with all sorts of markings, so you need to know what you are looking for. Then there's that grub screw; you pretty much have to have a wire prong screw holder gripping it at all times to be sure that it doesn't fall and hide itself among the components of the main board. None of that is rocket science, of course, but it is, I suspect, well outside the comfort zone of most users. David

    kef ref model 4

    someone was after a pair these need work but might be worth a bid https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/KEF-Reference-Series-Model-Four-SPARES-OR-REPAIRS/273893454352?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649
  17. I don't think objects like fishtanks or TVs behind the front of speakers are as much of a problem as many assume, primarily as higher frequencies predominently radiate forwards. I'm not at all surprised hanging a rug over the fishtank made no difference since this would only meaningfully absorb the highest frequencies. I'm rather sceptical when I see people saying they hear benefits of hanging rugs or the like over TVs between speakers.

    Is it just me?

    No. My wife and I are totally honest with each other about everything. She is every bit as involved in the hifi as I am. The choice of Tannoy speakers was ultimately her choice, and when I was considering an upgrade of power amps (mono) to a stereo model, it was she who persuaded me to buy two monos instead.

    TV isn't working.

    Check all connections from the aerial to the TV. Ensure that the lead exiting the aerial terminal box has a drip loop. Raise the height of the aerial if you can. Make sure that you have the right aerial for the transmitter. Try aligning the aerial on to another transmitter.

    The ‘end game’?

    I just want the unobtainable as the amp/speakers would need a new, very large, dedicated from the design stage up, house to put them in. SWMBO would not move to it even if we won £100+ Million on the lottery so the divorce would be too expensive. I'll just keep tinkering within "reasonable" boundaries. However everyone's reasonable is different.
  22. Very interesting layout, unless the picture is deceiving then you have a speaker on each wall across a corner. Not something you see often. Doesn’t this significantly change the first and subsequent reflection points?

    You have no idea how often clients have requested a delivery whilst shmbo is out for a while or at work, disgraceful behaviour. I just hide the new ? in the warehouse for a while.

    Is it just me?

    I guess Iam the biggest lier here. I buy used stuff and get it couriered to my friends. Then I bring them home and claim that my friend lent it. And I distribute all my boxes between my friends before I leave on a sail. So my wife has no clue how much is sinking in this hobby. I will probably have to confess to the system being mine some day. But that is for another day. And happy with this arrangement so far

    The ‘end game’?

    I find it fascinating the different approaches members on the forum take to build their systems and change component parts. You just have to go to Kegworth to see the huge variety in the way people do this. Sometimes a piece of equipment or even a whole system is referenced as being the ‘end game’ , from which I take that the user can’t see how - or wouldn’t want to - make any further change. They have reached their own audio nirvana. Do you have an ‘end game’ in sight and if so what is it? Do you think you will ever reach it? Is an ‘end game’ even desirable, after all shaping a system and trying new things is half the fun, isn’t it?
