  1. I was interested in a Bose sound plinth and asked for a demo at the York outlet. They had a disc to demonstrate it, all explosions, cars revving, loud noises played at high volume. My interest was in what speech sounded like, as my TV's tiny speakers weren't very clear. I repeatedly asked for a demonstration of speech, but the disc didn't have any. They couldn't demonstrate what I was interested in, so no sale.
  2. I don't give a damn about the subject under discussion, but when I saw the title of the thread I felt that the OP and others are in need of a little education in English nomenclature. Harry is not short for Harold. It is the Middle English form of Henry. How other cultures use it is irrelevant to this topic.

    My mother was a farmer's daughter. Her brothers would kill a beast for the pot, and she'd clean it. If you're brought up to slaughter and butcher your own meat, it's no big deal. To many younger folk now, even the way that eggs and milk are produced and harvested is off putting. We've become too far removed from our food sources.
  4. GRIMMS is the funniest act I've ever seen.
  5. I get the impression that Cloth-Ears is either simple-minded or a troll.
  6. Your link was dated May 2019, so it well predates Johnson. And it's Transport for London, not the government, that will be purchasing the buses. So, again, nothing to do with Johnson. Let's give credit where it's due, rather than posting false information. It's interesting that they're going for hydrogen to power the buses. I agree with you that it's a far better fuel than electricity, which is only as clean as whatever is used to produce it.
  7. I'd say that's only necessary if you buy a lot of secondhand records. If you get them new, and have a good pre-play cleaning regime, a record cleaning machine is an unnecessary expense..
  8. But were they an improvement over what you had before? Did you compare it with the Linn equivalents?
  9. Looks interesting. Linn produces upgrades at prohibitive prices. It's understandable that others come along claiming that their more sensibly priced upgrade can do the job just as well. The question is, do they? Only those who buy into a less expensive alternative can say, and they often too have to much invested to be objective.
  10. Exactly that. I typed Montana Radio Cafe into the search bar, and there it was.
  11. I get it through Tunein on my Moon Ace. I simply did a search for it.
  12. I've moved from Paradise to the Montana Radio Cafe.
  13. No, I'm not interested in measurements there, either. I'm interested in reliability and comfort, not mpg, bhp or safety ratings.
  14. Great Britain is the name of the largest island in the British Isles, not a description of the nation's influence and power. I fear that the Conservative & Unionist Party will preside over the break up of the Union. Certainly many of its members put Brexit before the Union.
