  1. The new Project record cleaner looks like a big improvement on the old one. Not a bad price at £400 either.
  2. Seriously though this is a classic.
  3. I believe this remote works as recommended by a forum member on the hdd forum (avi). They work with Philips remotes, my Marantz remove operates my DM10s. Or contact John at fwhifi. Co. Uk
  4. That is very true, although I don't watch many films my Mrs prefers watching TV and DVDs so I may be able to justify it on that basis. However I'm not sure she would like all the speakers.
  5. I have the discs in my 50th anniversary sets but nothing to play them on. But I do use the CDs.
  6. Me too, have you heard the other Beatles surround sound Blurays. White and Sgt Peppers? I was wondering if it was worth investing in a surround sound system. I don't really watch that many films but I'm interested to know what music sound like through them. I used to have an old cheap Sony system and music sounded pretty poor compared to my 2 way system, but it was not made for SS.
  7. What do people think of the recent 50th Anniversary Beatles BluRay albums? I notice that Abbey Road has Blu-ray disc (Dolby Atmos, 96kHz/24 bit high resolution stereo, and 96 kHz/24 bit DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. I don't have a AV system but would be interested to know what people think.
  8. It's got 16 legs.
  9. Jeff Lynne's ELO Wembley or Bust CD I saw them live at the O2 Arena last year, the music was fantastic but Jeff Lynne is no showman. He has all the personality of a Chartered Accountant. No offence to any Chartered Accounts out there.

    I agree with pretty much all you said especially the above statement. This and Tony Blair giving back 20% of the UK rebate back to the EU which allowed the expansion of the EU community to include Eastern Europe. I don't think we would be where we are now if not for Blair and Major. Then what really upset people was the banking crisis and the tax payer had to bail them out. The greedy bankers responsible got away screwing over the country with no accountability. Oh, yes Fred Goodwin gave back his knighthood. When the banks come back into profitability the government will sell the shares back to the ruling classes as knocked down prices, the rich get richer again.
  11. Kiefer Sutherland (London) His new album "Reckless and me" is great so I thought it would be great to see him live.
  12. Thanks for the advice Doug much appreciated.
  13. Hi Doug, I think you are right, I'm just listening to a 1970s copy of Yellow Submarine using the Marantz Preamp and it is pretty good, I'm really enjoying it. A lot of people rate the Nagaoka Cartridges, I've never had the pleasure of hearing one yet. I'm going to be treating the Ortofon Experience more as a demonstration that I can actually hear a difference between the cartridges and decide whether its worth spending a lot of money on them. I may well go for a Nagaoka or perhaps a Goldring. As for the preamp I quite like the thought of the Graham Slee ones as they will let you borrow them for a home demonstration if you join their forum. My main priority I think will be to buy the Velvet Vortex this year, hopefully in August.
