  1. Wow. Nailed an entire thread in one post. I am of the same opinion as you and I mostly try to avoid the news. But whenever I do see, hear or read the news I find myself judging the medium more than the subject of the story. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  2. I have a copy of this and unfortunately the pressing quality is not very good. Lots of surface noise which is disappointing for an album that cost about £40. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  3. No way was this EBay seller selling a new Mobile Fidelity copy of this album for £16.99, even though he says it in the description. A look at the photos reveals that it's the often very poor DOL label they sell in FOPP for a tenner. About as far away from Mofi as you can get. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F372319149923 Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  4. Thanks for this. Very helpful. I haven't looked at the LCD2, as I just assumed the LCDxc were so much better so I looked at them. They need to be closed back just because of where I use them and I don't want leakage. One question I have about the Oppos. They are a lot cheaper than the Audeze - even the LCD2 - so can they really be comparable in terms of sound quality? Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    Looking forward to winter?

    Winter has a certain charm. Cold, calm days with clear skies can be beautiful in Britain, but when it's pissing down and windy it's the meteorological equivalent of listening to modern chart music through the speaker of some chav's phone on a crowded rush hour bus. The short days are the worst thing about winter. I hate the fact that it goes dark at 4pm more than anything. Bloody horrible. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  6. At some point I am going to look at getting a pair of planar headphones because I want to see if they are as good as people say. My ideal choice would be the Audeze LCD-XC, probably second hand, but I wondered if there is anything out there that is better in terms of sound quality/value for money. Have to be closed back by the way. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    Coffee Ramblings and suggestions.

    Might try a steel one then. It looks far sexier apart from anything else. Naughtilus, good shout with heating the water first, I haven't tried that. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    So what Bialetti pot should be used on a gas stove? Would be willing to give one a go if they do actually work better than the one I had. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    Coffee Ramblings and suggestions.

    Those Bialetti pots seem to get a lot of bad reviews online for their build quality. When I used to use a stove top pot like this I found it almost impossible to get it to bubble over into the top at a low speed (which apparently is supposed to make the coffee better). It used to all boil over really quickly unless I put it on a very low heat on which case it took forever. I just use a cafetiere now. Also, aren't the Bialetti pots supposed to be for ceramic hobs only? Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

  11. He seemed to say exactly the same thing on these issues as almost every other celebrity. I clicked assuming he would say something different. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    I've got a Caiman SEG that I bought new and have hardly used if you want to give that a go. It is way below your price point but I am happy to lend it to you if you want to try it. They are well thought of (especially over on Art of Sound) but have a Google and see what you think and let me know. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
