  1. I have some Avid XLR male to female cables at home, I think they may be about 2m, I'll measure them when I get home tonight.
  2. The Carry On series was marvellous until the travesty that was Carry On England. Some of my favorites in no particular order are Spying, Cleo, Constable and Regardless (Charles Hawtry, thinking he is baby sitting some birds, but is sent to a strip club; 'I hear you have exotic birds' Bouncer; 'There's one from Ceylon, 'Do you have Blue tits?' 'No, we have central heating'), . I met Barbra Windsor about 6 years ago when I had to do a few recordings with her. We chatted about Carry One, and I told her my idea that anyone who wants to live over here should be shown the bit in Camping where her bikini top pings off and hits Kenneth Williams in the face. If they laugh, their in! At one point she put her hand on my arm and said 'your a very nice young man' and I could absolutely see where Sid James was at.
  3. Unfortunately nowadays there are lots of so-called designers who don't know when to stop. To paraphrase the great Dieter Rams 'the best design is the least design' Obviously a lot of the Braun stuff falls into this ethos, plus the B&O stuff from the '80s designed by Jakob Jenson.
  4. That will be Dom, top man! He can be found at http://www.heptinstalls.co.uk/
  5. 100% Olsen! https://olsondirect.co.uk/ Very high quality construction, utterly reliable, vast range.
  6. Squeezebox touch? Optical & Coax out, can be controlled by remote or phone/tablet. https://hifiwigwam.com/forum/topic/134782-squeezebox-touch-for-sale/ I'm currently in the process of reseting my Netgear Readynas duo and will be selling that too, with two 1TB discs. It has the squeezebox server software installed, so would make the complete package.

    Some of you may be interested in this months Practical Electronics which has part 1 of a constructional series 'Build your own LS 3/5a' https://www.epemag3.com/proj/0919.html
  8. Indeed, good wireless is totally capable of high end performance, the big advantage of a cable is that it just works, every time all the time. I use wireless a lot, but if cable is available, I always use that. And, speaking as a sound engineer with 35 years under my belt, the CAT cable makes knob all difference to the sound, unless there is a technical fault either mechanical/electrical or software. The sound Q resides in the DAC!
