  1. I've just started a two month trial, and doubt I'll subscribe when the trial expires. As long as I can easily find what I want to play, I'm happy. I don't need the background information, but if I did I'd find it on google.

    Is HiFI Dead?

    Thinking Bose is top hifi is like thinking a Harley is a top motorbike. And, I suspect, they both appeal to the same kind of people.

    Is HiFI Dead?

    I've been following the same debate on a motorbike forum. "The young aren't interested in bikes. It's an old man's hobby. Biking will die out with our generation." And golf. And wine appreciation. Magazine reading. Photography. Let's face it. Youth is a foreign country. They do things differently there.
  4. For sale, a pair of Musical Technology Harriers (I believe SE, but I can't remember and no longer have the box). £150. if you're close enough to Leeds I can deliver, or if you're a bit further away, we can meet halfway.

    Is HiFI Dead?

    For me, it's never been the equipment that's the hobby, but what comes out of the speakers. I buy decent gear because it makes the music sounds better. i'm just disappointed that I've never been able to convince my daughter, who also loves music, of this. She's happy to listen to it on her laptop's speakers, or through cheap headphones. I offered her my Naim amp and CD player, and my MT speakers when she bought a house recently, but no, they didn't suit her decor.
  6. The Pear Audio website will direct you to all the Shahinian dealers, and enable you to find who has what in stock. That's how I found my Larcs.
  7. Willow tree inspector with the Essex County Council.
  8. I've got Larcs, so can't help with a demo, but if you do hear some Compasses and like them, Andrew at The Audio Republic in Leeds had a demo pair at a good price earlier in the year. I don't know whether they've gone yet, but if not, they'd be a good buy.
  9. I was with you all the way until you suggested lager.
  10. If you buy in reliance on an advert that is misleading, you may have an action, but it would be against the retailer, not the manufacturer.
  11. Not at the managerial level.
  12. Absolutely disgusting. The university should throw them out immediately.
