  1. Also still working on my Moon Neo Ace
  2. Yes it was. This was more of a Moon electronics demo, no swapping of cables to show the differences. In the order I listened to them the three systems were System 1 in the main showroom - Moon Neo Ace + Dynaudio Evoke 30 System 2 in the main demo room - Moon 780D v2 Streaming DAC / Moon 740P Preamplifier / Moon 860A v2 Power Amplifier + Dynaudio Confidence 30 System 3 in the small demo room at the back of the store - Moon 390 Network Player - Preamplifier / 330A Power Amplifier + Fyne Audio F703 I found the 'mid priced' System 3 the least involving and least listenable but that might have had something to do with the small room size, I thought the Fyne F703 were too big for the space. The big surprise for me was how good the 'budget priced' System 1 sounded in the big showroom. The big price tag System 2 was easily the best system on dem on the day it sounded superb; big soundstage, holographic imaging, delicate in the quiet passages, hugely dynamic in the loud passages, tuneful, musical and so much more. Did I say I liked this system?? I had goosebumps when listening to every track that was played, I loved it but with a £40k price tag for the system I'll be sticking with my Linn system. Doesn't stop me playing with the ancillaries though
  3. This morning I attended a Nordost and Moon event at my local Linn dealership - just for a listen you understand - the credit cards were left at home I listened to three different systems with Moon electronics, Nordost cables/accessories and either Dynaudio or Fyne speakers. It was a very interesting couple of hours but I have no intention of changing any of my existing Linn gear. Just before I left I was offered a home demo of both Nordost power cables and speaker cables, I just have to wait for them to come into the dealership. Watch this space.......
  4. If t's any consolation, I had to get my reading glasses out too
  5. I have an Akurate DSM with HDMI2 board and connect my TV ARC socket to the HDMI Out socket on the DSM - that works for me. Also I've just looked at the Linn KDSM manual on the Linn website and can see this Hope this helps

  7. Bought CD after seeing them live last year
  8. Bought new by me in 2004 from Camera Centre Cardiff and is genuine UK stock, not grey market. This has been my ‘work horse’ lens and used on all the Nikon cameras I’ve owned - D70, D200, D7200 and my current D500. It can be used in manual focus and autofocus modes on Nikon FX bodies and Nikon DX bodies except those that require a focus motor built into the lens for autofocus. The front element of the lens does not rotate during focusing so is easy to hold, makes a Polarising filter easy to use and allows the use of the petal- shaped ‘Pefect Hood’. This lens is in good condition and is in perfect working order. It comes with original lens cap, original lens mount cap, original reversible lens hood, original lens case, original warranty card and instruction sheet. I will also include a Kood 82mm skylight filter. The lens comes from a smoke free, pet free and child free home. Technical information Lens Construction - 14 elements in 13 groups and includes 3 aspherical elements and 2 Special Low Dispersion elements Angle of View - 84.1° - 34.3° Maximum Aperture - f2.8 at all focal lengths Minimum Aperture - f32 Minimum Focussing Distance - 0.4m (15.7 inches) Magnification - 1:3.8 Filter size - 82mm Dimensions – Diameter x length - 88.6mm x 113mm (3.5 x 4.4 inches) Sample photos taken with this lens using Nikon D500, D200 and D70 bodies can be seen in my Flickr album 'Sigma 24-70' here https://flic.kr/s/aHsmFPZoka For sale at £200 Collection preferred with cash on collection.

  10. I've had my Super 20s for about 18 months and agree with everything you have said - I love them
  11. While playing with my new Tamron 150-600 G2 on a Nikon D500 in my back garden this afternoon a starling landed on the bird feeder, the first time I've seen one do that.
  12. I just fired up Konfig and noticed that there are new updates available for my Akurate DSM and Exaktbox. Davaar 69 Build 289 (4.69.289) I'll give that a try
