    What are your 6 favourite Album Covers?.

    1. The Blue Nile - Hats 2. Joy Division - Unknown Pleasures 3. The Clash - London Calling 4. Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon 5. Yazoo - Upstairs at Eric's 6. New Order - Blue Monday (I know it's not an album but it's the same size!!!).
  2. Pleasant enough to listen to but not really engaging. I find the vocals a bit weak. Just about reached a 3/5 grade.
  3. Initial impressions are that it sounds a bit like a sub-par Housemartins. It's not bad but not really doing it for me. I will give it another listen though.
  4. Your headphone amp is fine - The album has some funky balance choices.

    FS: DIY DDDAC

    Very surprised this hasn't been snapped up. I'll give it another week and then I'll break it down and sell off the parts as there are over £1k worth in this build.

    Warm Summer evenings and valve amps !

    I have a pair of Class A DIY Pass Aleph 60s as my main amps but I now have a Class A/B summer amp as well.

    A quick DAC. Maybe...

    The ones fitted in my DDDAC are Lundahl LL1694 which are described as 'Filament Current Choke' (https://www.don-audio.com/Lundahl-LL1694-Filament-Current-Choke). I'm not the builder; I can wire a plug but that's about it.

    I own the DDDAC for sale in the advert. It may be a waste but it does provide a sizable improvement in sound quality. It is one of a number of improvements found and suggested by the sizable community of DDDAC builders on diyaudio (https://www.diyaudio.com/forums/digital-line-level/265228-upgraded-single-board-pcm1794-nos-dddac.html).

    Quick Visual Music Quiz.

    Thanks. I'd never have guessed correctly without the big clue. I don't even really like the song but the video was obviously memorable.

    Quick Visual Music Quiz.

    I'm hoping 'addictive' is a big clue? There were 5 models backing Robert Palmer in his Addicted to Love video.
  12. I think you'll prefer his debut album, Let Love Rule.
