  1. Here is a link to the archived show folks... http://www.progzilla.com/category/podcast/steve-petch-the-progmeister-show/
  2. Great day in the cave using my tiny Q Acoustic speakers liberated from my 5.1 system. I was really surprised at how good they are. Music was more than acceptable i have to say. Hoping to have new speakers in place within the next couple of weeks.
  3. As above, I need to get something a can man handle with a back injury and to fit into a alightly smaller place. I have had many large speakers and i can remember moving my B&W 801's around on my own. Looking to get a larger stand mount speaker.
  4. Awaiting a pair of speakers not too disimiler and takes me back where i started my journey in so many ways,
  5. Myself and good lady now find ourselves in a rather large house with only the two of us living in it so we need to downsize for obvious reasons. Economy, cleaning, maintenance etc. This along with a painful back complaint has lead to the need to be sensible. My Heco Statement's were a fab speaker which i loved to bits but they were very large. I sold them recently and had to wrestle them into their cartons myself. This had me taking painkillers for about three days afterwards. I have some speakers in mind and awaiting their availability. More news when i have it folks. Hopefully in the next fortnight they will be in place.
  6. Mods can you merge this post please?
  7. Cleaning. decorating and moving rooms or houses!
  8. This could be the result of Aushentoshan consumption
  9. As i will be downsizing house in the next year to 18 months i need to acuire some smaller units. As i have a back injury and struggle moving huge heavy speakers about whether on fridge jacks or not, common sense tells me to get something a little more sensible. I have a pair in mind and hope to hve them in a week or so. Watch this space.
  10. Having sold my very large and very heavy floorstanders recently due to the need to downsize. At sixty years of age and having owned numerous legendary behemoth classics such as B&W 801 and their likes I now realise that I need to obtain something I can man handle without the risk of a hernia or having to call for assistance to move around on my own. I think we are talking about my very last pair of speakers. Should have them in place within a fortnight. Watch this space.
