    Huawei P20 Pro. How good in your experience?

    Yes, it is a great camera, owned mine for nearly a year now and the bonus is that it is a good phone too. Away in Whitby for a few days at the moment and took more good photos yesterday with the phone than I did with my XT2. Computational photography is going to bring an exciting future for hackers like me.

    2020 Spreadsheet Now Live

    Yes, I appreciate that. I can hand on heart say that I will do justice to a large room. If in a small room, think my speakers would annoy the surrounding rooms somewhat.

    2020 Spreadsheet Now Live

    Third time lucky for me, for registration that is. I have registered and then withdrawn at the last two shows but my new speakers are just weeks away from completion now. I have put in a request for a large room please, I have no chance of making a large active hybrid horn system work in a small hotel room. Cheers
  4. Thank you, that's me subscribed

    Big Spaces For Big Systems

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

    ^ 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.
  10. Thanks Bignose, I just grabbed an early birthday present for my daughter with that 1975 set. how do you spot these bargains?
  11. 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!
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  15. 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
