    Keith Flint has left us ..

    Hi, Suffered from "demons" throughout his life. But recently, he split up with his wife and was selling his house. It seems these were factors that sent him into depression.

    If you did believe in power cables..

    Hi, Here's the real deal. The cables were very expensive JPS. They came in a very nice Aluminium box. There were speaker cables and mains cables. The owner was very enthusiastic about the performance gains. Due to Geoff (Oldius) have two big rooms for the bake off, it was a ideal stiuation to try some cable swapping. To make it straight forward, we decided to try just a mains lead on the amplifier. The amp was a very fine sounding Lentek amp. Two cables were used, a JPS mains cable and a normal "kettle lead" mains cable. We initially went from Kettle lead then JPS lead, then swopping back and forth. Both the leads were plugged into a mains block and each was swapped over when in use. The amp volume was kept the same. The cables were swapped quite a few times. TBH, most of the people listening couldn't here a difference between the two. The owner of the cables seemed to be ecstatic when his JPS cables were in place. This did led to some people looking perplexed. Each time I changed the cable, I had to go behind the equipment and out of sight. As I was going to change the cable to the JPS, I had the brainwave of not changing the "kettle lead". I popped my head up and said "ready". So people thought the cable that they were listening to was the JPS. I did the "change" a few times, each time popping out of sight behind the equipment & not changing anything plus keeping the "kettle lead" in. Most didn't hear differences but the owner and maybe one or two others thought it was loads better when they thought the JPS was in. After doing this a few times, I got a fellow bake off buff to observe what I was doing and to keep quiet. I addressed the audience asking if they could hear big differences and asked what they heard in the last change. The owner did wax lyrically about the JPS. But then I dropped the bombshell of not changing the cables. The witness backed it up. Their were interesting looks on people's faces At the end of the day, if people want to spend big money on cables, it is up to them. It's their money.

    What companies, out of Business, did you LOVE???

    Hi, Akai, Grundig and Krell are all still going. Krell still make High end HiFi. Amps Dac, Streamers etc. Grundig & Akai have moved out of the HiFi market. Grundig make white goods (Fridges Freezers etc) , Akai make main stream consumer electronics. The Pro side of Akai (synths, samplers etc) was sold to Numark and is still strong. Tag McLaren were sold to IAG & become Audiolab again.
