  1. What are you listening to right now?

    He plays Rock, Pop, Blues, Jazz, Country, and is arguably one of the top Guitarists on the planet. He can pull anything he wants. Might be a ****hole. Bastard. Top Musician though.

    Double live CD. Page & Black Crowes
  3. What are you listening to right now?

    Vinyl. This always brings a smile to my face.
  4. Measurements v Listening Tests

    I absolutely agree with your comment regarding hearing and differences on room performance. I think there is another big variable that I have adjusted over the years. Recordings vary so much. I have tweaked my sound mainly by the use of cables and changing the valves in my Preamp and Cd player and the choosing of TT Cartridge. I used to have records and CDs that were so bright and lean that I didn't wan't to play them. I have now found a balance that works (for me) that I now enjoy the vast majority of what I play. Of course it is a compromise. As it is only me and my wife who listen to it, I have the prerogative to set it up how I like it. I doubt it measures acurately but I really enjoy the music and it is unfatiguing over long periods. In fact I brightened it up a touch this year as my HF hearing drops with age. I know someone with a very expensive system who told me some of his CDs sound astonishing, but he couldn't play most of them as they were too bright. I don't get that. my two pence worth.

    The nurse at your Doctor's surgury will do one for you. Covers volume and frequency on headphones.

  10. Have DACs really improved?

    Not sure I can respond to this. All I can say is that I like KFC, I don't like McDonalds, I do like NOS Dacs and I have a horrid little valve preamp which cost me S/H £200 which was a wonderfull upgrade to my system. Apart from cartridge all components in system from the last century. Not changing even if lottery win. ( not sure if I can prove that one.)
  11. Snow. Thank god we shopped yesterday

    White out near Pershore.
  12. Have DACs really improved?

    All I can go on is what my ears tell me.
  13. Have DACs really improved?

    They certainly divide opinion. I'm suggesting he listens to one. The ones I have heard sound wonderful. I have not looked at the output spectrum of mine and it is not likely I will.
  14. Have DACs really improved?

    Try a listen to a CD player or Dac with NOS . ( No Oversampling). They tend to sound very natural and not over analytical.
