  1. This is fantastic, count me in for 2020, please. I hope you get enough takers to make it happen this year.

    Random image of the day 3

    ^ that's a pretty impressive picture from a phone! I have a P20 Pro, it has just had a big software update and the camera is better than ever, not sure it has a wide mode though.

    Lurch's 60th Birthday

    Happy birthday, Lurch, 60 is nothing these days. Well unless it's you that's turning 60! Have a good one.

    What are you listening to right now?

    How is this Ade? The last two albums from Puscifer have been nothing short of masterpieces, this looks like a load of remixes? I am always a little wary of MJK releases where he remixes his songs, which seems to be something he does often.
  6. Thanks Bignose, I just grabbed an early birthday present for my daughter with that 1975 set. how do you spot these bargains?
  7. Well I do have two preamps, two CD players but only one TT. Oh, and no power amp. Even without speakers, I continue to buy enough music for all of Wales!
  8. I would have to buy a damn big suitcase and a lot of kit to have a chance! I don't own any speakers at all and the rest of my kit is too bulky so it would be a ground-up build. Happy to look after your room, look forward to it Ben.
  9. It pains me to say it but I am going to have to withdraw again this year. My speakers, which I thought with confidence were going to make it last year, won't be making it this year either Good things come to those who wait, or have no choice. I promise next year to commit and follow through on it. Happy to help in any way I can - assisting with setting up, room sitting or whatever. Sorry to Peter and the other organisers for the mess around again.

    40 years old this year!

    Absolutely love this album, probably my favourite PF. I first heard it as a 16yo in the late 80's and it took about three listens but when I got it I was hooked. Brilliant and inspired
  11. Hi Joolz, The cabinet size is based on the requirements for the 12" drivers running in 4th order bandpass. It is pretty hefty at 1350mm tall and around 500mm wide. Amps will likely be similar to those in Sarabande but amps are not that critical in such a highly efficient active system such as this. Cheers
  12. Thanks, Joolz, once you hear a full range system which is as dynamic as it is totally smooth, but with incredible resolution, there is no turning back! I knew more than a decade ago that I had heard something in my previous TAD experiments that had to be revisited when the time was right; this opportunity with Lenard has taken things way past my wildest dreams. Cheers!
  13. Hi Joolz, Slow progress, trying to source suppliers in Australia that are dependable and do good work is hopeless and this has slowed things down greatly. Paul and John of Lenard have also been quite busy sound treating local community halls and building & installing large-scale active horns systems. This has taken their focus for much of the year but they are back on Symphony and development of a much smaller 3-way active. Its just a waiting game but I am hopeful the speakers will be done within the next four months. I am more patient than I ever gave myself credit for!

    Awesome You Tube Music

    I dunno Monkey, but if you like that you should get Blue Man groups album 'the complex'. It is great!
