  1. 401 does good

    Sound quality, looks, durability, solidity and ease of service.
  2. 401 does good

    There's something very 'right' about a good 401. Enjoy it.
  3. New Jazz Releases For Your Consideration

    I shall try a few of these. Cheers.
  4. A good amp is a good amp and that can be SS or valve . I bloody hate hearing things like , *I'm looking for a valve amp to give me a warmer sound.' They won't, a new amp might but not because it has valves. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  5. That looks very like the PMA-S10 I recommended earlier in the thread. If it is, it will be powerful, controlled and fully specced.
  6. What are you listening to right now?

    Matthew Halsall - 'On the Go'. Sublime, Mancunian modal jazz.
  7. What a gig!

    I am serious. I've seen a lot of live music, including some world class gigs, but these guys were mind blowing. I spoke to Cerys Matthews the following day and she said everyone she had spoken to about her festival had told her how special they were. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  8. What a gig!

    They were mesmerising Phil. It was literally as if the crowd could not believe what they were witnessing. I doubt anything could get near to the experience of watching them live. I have a concert on Youtube to watch tonight.
  9. What a gig!

    I've been going to concerts regularly for more than 30 years, but this weekend I probably had my greatest live experience at the 'Good Life Experience festival'. The band was 'Flamingods' , a psyche band from Bahrain, with four outstanding musicians, creating a wall of multi-rhythmic, uncategorisable music. There were mouths open all around me, as the audience was blown away. By the third track, the vast majority of the room was a flailing windmill of limbs. Incredible .
  10. My Set Up At Home

    Thanks. I assumed you meant mine!
  11. What are you listening to right now?

    Bloody hell, what a cracker!
  12. What are you listening to right now?

    What a bloody trio, even though there are four musicians! Just superb. One of my favourite albums from one of my favourite musicians: Alice Coltrane, 'A Monastic Trio'
  13. Walter Becker RIP

    Someone who made a difference. RIP.
  14. https://dogoodaudio.co.uk/ A great little hifi shop, well worth a visit . I popped in today and they are now selling records too. A small but interesting range of mainly audiophile pressings, properly stored and immaculately presented. Nice to see a new face in the business. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
