  1. The one you let go...

    Years ago i lusted for a Technics cassette desk , RSM250..bought one and had it for about 10 years while using another deck and never took it out of the box . My golden rule now is that if its not used in 6 months it can go..unless its a pair of JBL's
  2. Primare posse

    they are not due to be released until September , we had a listen in a none ideal situation at the Munich show and to be honest it sounded fine . Waiting for the email to say htey are on the way
  3. What is your mains voltage?

    At the office on an industrial estate we can swing between 230 and 250 . With it up near the 250 mark we have a few amps that do get a little noisy . At home we get 237 plus or minus 2v
  4. Rel

    I was lucky enough to meet Richard several times while still at REL and after he left . He was always a true gentleman and very kind in how he spoke to people about the things in life he loved .
  5. Another vote for the Mark Levison...and it is now available with a phono input
  6. North West Audio Show (Cranage)

    We are popping over on Sunday fro a couple of hours to have a look at what is on offer . Hope to try and find a new brand of speaker for the shop that offers something different

    We have sold a couple and never had one back for px, people like them and tend to stick with them
  8. Power and pre options for ATC SCM19

    Can confirm that the 34.2 bridged is a beast of a combo . It will drive anything..and with the new Primare models coming on line there are deals to be had .

    Just back from Munich and have to say that the new Primare look fantastic . I think the new 15 will be a killer product and the whole idea about sharing media across the network will work very well for us as a dealer and installer i can see this as a viable multiroom solution for people wanting something a little better than the norm .
  10. Munich 2017

    I will be there for Thursday and Friday , love Munich !Not just the show but the town itself . Looking forward to seeing whats new and catching up with a few friends i have not spoken to for a while . Oh and did i mention beer!

    From what i can gather the DAC30 is gone and they have no AV product left in black , we are buying the SPA23 and BD32 in the titanium finish on a cracking deal until that is sold through. The two channel range bar the 60 are getting on now and i think they will show new product at Munich in a couple of weeks time due to the offers on some of the other kit. I will be there for the first two days and if i see anything i will post some pictures

    The Mk2 like the Oppo does the 4K playback (not though 4K discs) . I find it also plays back remotely stored files way better .Primare use the Crystal DAC chip set in the plaer , the same as they used in the DAC30 before it was discontinued .
  13. This is a great thread , as i think if you look at what people are saying its just about what i have thought for years . Some thinks placed under certain bits of kit can make a difference(be it good or bad that only the listener can say). One thing i have always avoided is glass shelving , for me its always wood or something less "ringy".. One of our customers once showed me a table he had build from oak and concrete , god it was heavy but his system sounded fantastic on it and he was experimenting with different things between the shelf and the kit . It was good to listen as what he thought made a big difference i found hardly any change in the sound . What i do think is worth a mention is what you can put under a sub woofer to make some improvements .Subs generally have a lot of energy in them and isolating them from the floor can make huge it concrete slabs or rubber feet this is an area that great gains can be made for minimal expense .

    Having bought and sold a few BD32's, both the Mk1 and MK2 models i have just bitten the bullet and ordered another BD32Mk2 for home and i am not going to change it !! Every time i fit one and then put it on a job i get earache from SWMBO as she likes how it sounds better than the one you keep putting back in.. It was a great deal from the distributor as i think as they are based on the now defunct Oppo 103 model .They are running out of stock(no black left at all) and it had to be done.. Wondering if they will show anything new in Munich?
  15. It's a shame , i know lots of people who go to Windsor , both trade and public . We would have to think long and hard as to what to do..would love to do something in Harrogate as it is on our doorstep ..but we also get to see lots of kit at Windsor that we would never have the chance to otherwise .
