  1. Rob Watts (Chord) (among other specialists) will be there giving a talk, if you like that sort of thing.
  2. I am on the fence of attending at the moment, but others might still be interested, it does look like a good event. The car has taken a mechanical failure here that's going to cost me and left me with catching the train only option as well, which is a 5 hour right faff job if I commit. As its a train only option I have managed to preliminary book somewhere to stay near the event which I might still cancel yet. Shame as I was perhaps looking forward to a good hi-fi day out. If I do end up going I might even combine it with a slight hi-fi shop safari the day before the show, some very interesting looking shops there in London. Maybe the thought of a beer or knowing of live music near the event the night before might give me more incentive to make the long journey. But I'm sure there will be it is London after all.

    qed xt cables

    I got some XT400 and I like it, its a pretty good all-around cable I think. I also have some XT Silver Anniversary which I use in another system and it can be a little bright sometimes and aggressive but I still really like it. It brings some nice sparkle to the music and is exciting to listen to, and its really small profile helps to keep things looking really neat as well. I did try the Silver Genesis cable as well for a time, it was good but to be honest I didn't think it was up to what it sells for, this really is a lot of expense for little gain/change IMO. But as with everything if it does it for you then why not. It funny as the Genesis tonally sounded nearer to the XT SA than the XT400 to me.
  5. Did these speakers sell after? or is there any more Shahinian's about at similar money (these or others) ?? PM me if there is

    What's yer bits'n'bobs ?

    Ha, love it! The number of times I bought something blind Sometimes it was a success story, and if I hadn't had done it I would have never have got to even discovered some of what I consider audio gems. But the other side of it has been a quick turn around, sometimes in a loss, very rarely an occasional gain as well, and many an awkward moment or even very rarely an occasional heated debate with a dealer. But, theres still something about getting new gear in I get pleasure from, or seeing others do it. Must be something to do with the hunter gatherer in us Speakers are an absolute nightmare though, how they work in a room is everything, plus the electronics that really gel with them is sometimes not what youve actually got to hand. Its great times when everything all comes together though.

    Sub bass & bass Speakers with 18" Volt RV4564 drivers

    I really hope this is not the start of you going all soft on us here when it comes to hardcore audio Keith

    Oh, how a once-mighty pair of speakers have fallen...

    Here you go 20 quid from ali express and you've almost got them looking good as new https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32795936196.html?spm=2114.search0104.3.2.196d5c555nhUC9&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0%2Csearchweb201602_5_10065_10130_10068_10547_319_317_10548_10696_10192_10190_453_10084_454_10083_10618_10307_10820_10301_10821_10303_537_536_10059_10884_10887_321_322_10103%2Csearchweb201603_52%2CppcSwitch_0&algo_expid=0f7d9e58-5bbc-45c2-8033-8606788f7a91-0&algo_pvid=0f7d9e58-5bbc-45c2-8033-8606788f7a91&transAbTest=ae803_5

    I cant believe how disrespectful you can be when something serious like this has happened!

    JBL Lets R-O-C-K

    Does this qualify as being in the JBL club ? If your a going to buy a bluetooth speaker, buy a big one Its not too bad actually, big sound that's felt as much as heard. Wish there was a bit more tweekabilty though, there's a power on button and volume, thats it. Oh and there is a bass boost which is completely useless.

    Oh, how a once-mighty pair of speakers have fallen...

    Oh wow. They were 7 k back in the day as well! That really is sad to see, not that Ive ever heard a set. I wonder how much theyd be worth if they were mint ? I'd still say perhaps less than 7 k, but I could be wrong. Speakers can be very much victims of fashion, but these were a high end model at the time.

    And this is always a good thing in my book

    Resolution Audio Opus 21 Owners Club

    Implementation is always a factor. Its funny as even though I did think the Opus was a nice player, for me it wasnt anything really special. Again system matching and synergy is always another factor, but I did try it with quite a few other components, even tried the DIN connection. It just wasnt doing it for me

    Resolution Audio Opus 21 Owners Club

    Good CD player, not disputing that, but didnt these just use a DVD-Rom drive that you used to be able to buy from PC shops for a few quid? But nothing wrong with that either. If I remember rightly Naim used the exact same drive in their 3.5 grand DVD player, that sounded very good as well apparently.
