    Lil & Ollie

    Had a listen. Very good indeed. They don't seem to have embraced online promotion very well as there's not much about them that I can find. Will keep an eye out for their album though.

    Album Covers. Where were they shot?

    The cover for Definitely Maybe was shot inside Bonhead's front room in a cul-de-sac just off Burton Rd, West Didsbury. Sorry I can't link it I can't remember the actual house. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    Unwanted noise from speakers

    An update on this...been meaning to post it for while. I took it back to the dealer, he contacted Audionote and they told him to fit all new valves. He brought it back to me and I've not had a problem since. Cheers for all the advice chaps. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  6. I paid for my ticket a few days ago and I thought I would receive an email PDF or a link to print it off, but my email just confirms that I have paid for a ticket. Can someone explain how or when tickets will be received? I don't want to turn up on the day to be told I need to have my ticket! Cheers

    daughter's taste in "music"

    Rap started with Cool Herc etc. in the late 70s. The classic GSH stuff was not only made before the concept of rap was even invented, it was completely independent of it. In his memoir he describes it as poetry and does not mention rapping (he was also an author at that time remember).

    Humbuggery dispelled for a while

    The day before my birthday this year I stopped by Richer Sounds to buy a pair of wireless ear buds, but it wasn't due to open until noon so I didn't bother. The next morning I opened a present from my wife and it was a pair of wireless Soundmagic E10s. She had recalled a comment I had made a few weeks before. 😊 She's a goodun and no mistake. 👍

    daughter's taste in "music"

    The problem with rap is that it lacks the variation and dimensions of most music. Basically a lead part with no melody. I'm a huge reggae fan and it's the same with DJs in reggae. As great as many of them are, their music doesn't stand up to repeated plays because of the lack of variety. Millions of people love rap though, so there is no point in the rest of us stating how crap it is. Incidentally my daughter loves all that nonsense too.

    There is loads of stuff about them on several websites. Apparently they used to go ok at one time.

    Unwanted noise from speakers

    Ok. I was hoping to resolve it without the hassle of going back to the dealer but it does sound like that will be necessary. Will contact them after Christmas. By the way the amp was on order from Audionote so was brand new from the factory. Thanks all.

    Unwanted noise from speakers

    Thanks for the reply. It is still under warranty so I could go back to the dealer as anything I do inside the amp might invalidate the warranty.
  15. Can anyone help with what might be causing this? I got got a new Audinote valve amp in the summer, and in the last couple of months it has developed an annoying noise. It comes mainly through one channel and sounds a bit like the sound when you turn the dial between fm stations. It only happens sporadically and is mostly unnoticable while music is playing, but it is annoying. I have tried changing leads and unplugging all sources, and changing speakers but it is still there, even with the amp volume turned down. Hopefully the link below works. It was recorded close up so sounds worse than it does in reality - it is the really loud bits that are the problem. Any ideas about what is causing it? Mains interference, dodgy amp wiring?
