    Does rfi makes a system sound brighter?

    Send me a cable to try and I will honestly try it and honestly report back.

    Toi be fair, there is nothing which could help your speakers.

    So do you think it's RFI which makes Chord electronics sound so clangingly awful? And Linn?

    It's the internet - everyone has an agenda. Yours is to shill your foo cables without paying dealer fees. Which is under discussion.

    Tell me more about Hybrid Class A

    My Grandinote Class A amp puts out up to 37 watts per channel, but draws 270 watts from the mains all the time. So depending on speaker load it is putting out a minimum of 200 watts as heat, all the time. So about 1/15th of the output of a powerful fan heater.

    Cricket World Cup 2019

    I was in a restaurant in Boulogne with various family members, looking at cricinfo commentary on my phone. I think the other guests were puzzled that we kept cheering!

    No. Shit speakers make systems sound bright. But so many audiophiles buy them anyway.

    How much snake oil can one buy?

    What people often, fail, to realise is, that what look, like commas may, just be dirty marks on your, screen.

    What wireless routers are we using?

    I have a Netgear D6400, with 7 wired connections and 2 or 3 5GHz wireless. Works a lot better than the previous Home Hub, which would get confused if you connected more than two devices to the wireless.

    Took the plunge again....Harbeth & Sugden

    Oh, it really can. But you need to spend a lot.

    They don't have to. It's a balance between getting the very, very best out of marvellous recordings and making less good recordings listenable. A choice. If you choose the highest-fi, you limit your listening to those brilliant recordings. I might if I listened to 100% classical, but I don't, so no.

    What are you listening to right now?

    Ja! Sputnik - Lift Off Saw them play last night, at a bike rally of all places. NOT your usual Biker fodder.
