  1. I love it! Great and iconic Phono Stage
  2. Sad news from this morning, A great audio visionary. https://www.whathifi.com/us/news/ken-ishiwata-legendary-hi-fi-figure-dies-aged-72
  3. MA studio 20 as I said in my view was one of the best British speakers ever made, the majority of MA speakers of Mo Iqbal era made history in British audio, and of course the famous B&W 802 D another remarkable speakers.
  4. Hi blueboy, you mean, MA GS20 ( New generation ) or MA Studio 20? If you talking about MA Studio 20 I know very well, I can give you [emoji817] sure of the quality of these speakers, only you can find in second hand market, is not easy to find. About MA GS20, are very expensive and to be frankly, I don’t know why, sorry for my honesty, I’m almost 60, I met Mo Iqbal 35 years ago, the MA founder, a great visionary, was made the one of the best speakers in UK. Since then MA change to much, like many others British audio manufacturers. Mo Iqbal left the company in 1999-2000 and since then MA change to much the philosophy, is normal, but for me MA and the majority of the other iconic British loudspeakers no longer attractive just for one reason, all came from the same place, so, sonically sounds exactly the same... Just a few British loudspeakers are Made in UK, but you need to pay a high price. I suggest a second hand market, you have a opportunity to find very good stuff, Spendor, B&W, Monitor Áudio, Infinity, Ruark, Proac ( I’m talking about of older models , 90’s ) etc, all are a amazing option for your hears and for you spend your retire days listening good music. On eBay UK, Gumtree, Hi-Fi Shark and of course in Wigwam classifieds you have a plenty of opportunity to find good and rare audio stuff a good prices too. Good luck for your search Cheers [emoji482] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. Hi, I got ones but in metal, if you have interested please let me know Cheers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Small but powerful monitor speakers and of course, are beautiful Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Sure. Fauré Requiem is beautiful as well. The Karajan Verdi Requiem is a great recording, dated from 1972. Verdi Requiem have a great recording from Philips conducted by John Elliot Gardiner Cheers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. My recommendation for Verdi Requiem ( my personal view of course ) is for Karajan, from Deutsche Grammophon with Anna Tomowa Sintow, Agnes Baltsa, José Van Dam and Carreras. Just a quick off topic personal note, Mozart Requiem and Magnificat by Bach for me is the most beautiful coral works of all times and all music history too.
