  1. For what I need it for I reckon the a29 should be sufficient. Glad to hear it is a good bit of kit and goes well with MA. I'm in the fortunate position that the current situation has made me really busy at work so I am still getting paid but cannot go out to spend it. It's not the case funds wont stretch more the case eyebrows will be raised😁
  2. Monitor Audio bx5s. Not the be all and end all of speakers but more than ok for listening when cooking tea, enjoying dinner or for the kids in the play room. They are in an open planned kitchen, dining and living area.
  3. Not sure I could swing that one past the wife. After all it is a second system😂 Good shout though.
  4. Looking at replacing my yamaha as500 in my second system. Speakers are Monitor audio bx5s. Seen these arcams pop up regularly for between 300-400 on the bay. From what I have read they should match better with the MAs than the yamaha (good amp but a bit student and forward at times).

  6. Yup plug in extenders are not great from past experience. Got fed up with them and got one of these: https://www.ui.com/unifi/unifi-ap/ Perfect wifi around the house without any drop outs, as like you I have a big house with thick walls.

    Fantasy upgrade

    Hegel H590, KEF reference 5 and Linn Sondek klimax. Though if I had that much cash I would demo shedloads so might change😁
  8. Not dumb at all, you pay 4 quid at the start then nothing until the trial ends.
  9. Fair enough. Anyway for 4 quid I will give it a try.
  10. I think they are doing it, partially, because of the Covid19 lockdown.
  11. Yeah I'm very happy with spotify as I use it for background listening but for 4 quid I think I will give it a try.
  12. Not sure if anyone has seen this but Tidal are doing all their packages for £4 for 4 months!! This includes the HIFI platform. https://offer.tidal.com/campaigns/5e7903b2f268870019552017/products?geo=GB&campaignId=5e7903b2f268870019552017 Think at that price I will give it a try.
  13. Not heard the cxc but I have the audiolab and really impressed with it.
