    That's OK.

    Just wondering whereabouts in Bucks you are ? I'm just over the Beds border near Leighton Buzzard and have a Croft 25R/7 pre/power combination. Also. Deco Audio in Aylesbury stock Croft and Peter Empson there might be able to lend you something to trial ? He's a good guy to deal with. k

    Thanks, chaps. I've had a look at the HiFi Pig reviews and they have proved useful, as well as the comments in this thread. Decision time ! k

    Kralk Audio TDB Range

    I've been watching this thread with interest as I'd like to try some different speakers in my second system. The positive comments about the TDB-2 and TDB-6 speakers are floating my boat; does anyone have any experience with the TDB-4 speaker ? The driver configuration for the TDB-4 is a little out of the ordinary (and out of my experience !) and I was wondering how this sounds in relation to the more conventional TDB-6. The room in question is about 4m x 2.5m and the system is presently Gyrodek/AN Arm/Ortofon + Marantz CD6006 into Croft 25R pre/RIAA/7 power into Heco Celan 300 speakers. Music tastes are quite eclectic but mostly playing classical/jazz/prog. k

    Jazz on the BBC?

    There is some jazz on BBC Radio 3. "Jazz Record Requests" is what it is says it is on the tin. "J to Z" is magazine style of programme including interviews, some concert recordings and recent releases and tends to cover more contemporary jazz, and is hosted by jazz musicians and writers, i.e. people in the industry. Jazz Now usually concentrates on more lengthy concert performances from comtemporary performers. I wouldn't let the term "comtemporary" put you off - jazz is a broad church of course ! k

    A classic "Carry On" line indeed. In the same league as https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h6BJJe9JV_A k

    Jazz Newbie

    Good recommendation. Some names to watch out for include EST, Tord Gustavsen, Daniel Heskedal, Marius Neset, Eyolf Dale, Nils Pedder Milvaer to name but a few ! Some contemporary home-grown talent includes Dinosaur, Get The Blessing, Tori Freestone, Polar Bear, Sons of Kemet, Neil Cowley Trio. ACT and ECM are definitely good European labels, also try UK labels like Edition who have a great roster of bands including some of the ones I've mentioned above. k

    RUSSELL K IN THE HOUSE – IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE

    Would be, if it wasn't for my grandson's birthday party.....! Hifi demo at Deco Audio or a party with 20+ 5 year olds ? Duty calls on this occasion, I'm afraid. The Deco Audio demo days are always well worth a visit. k

    what classical music are you listening to now ?

    Just arrived in this morning's post and enjoyed this afternoon :-
  12. Definitely, time to visit and ask a few awkward questions face to face ! k
  13. Glad you 've got it sorted out. Ah, Black Circle, our paths may well cross in there. I'm a short portly bearded bloke (classic Wammer, really) with a white stick (dodgy eyesight) !! k
