    OK, here's the main image on the front cover (I've given you about 70% of the cover here, with the title Photoshopped out.....) Anyone recognize it?

    I have a virtually mint Graaf GM20 OTL if anyone is interested. It is a superb power amp.

    FREE Advice required re 1st valve amp purchase

    I have a Copland CSA14 integrated in my 'smaller' office system, I highly recommend it. Well worth a few hundred on ebay (2 were available recently). I have used it without a problem for about 6yrs now. I also have a CDA289 CD player. Copland is beautiful stuff. I also have a huge, I MEAN HUGE Mr Liang triode Integrated which has two huge 845 valves in it as well as other valves. You seriously wouldn't believe the purity of sound that comes out of this, but I replaced it with transistor amps some years ago. This one is for sale if you're interested.

    On1 RAW Converter

    Hi Gromit My daughter is international fashion photographer, Isabella Lombardini. She uses Leica cameras. An S2 Pro, an SL and she often carries her old Digilux 3 as an emergency spare. She also does some video work. She sometimes shoots in monochrome, and sometimes converts files from colour to B/W, as well as working in colour. She often has a team working with her: a stylist, makeup artist, an assistant, and sometimes a video cameraman. She likes to be 'hands-on, but when she has a team, she is the art director, and she usually does post-production and editing work herself. She changed from Lightroom to Capture One last year, and has told me that she finds it terrific to use. She shoots in RAW most of the time, and I know in the studio she often hooks up her S2 or an SL to a computer running Capture One so that she can check tiny details of the shoot almost 'on the fly'. You can check out a few samples of her work on her website, http://www.isabellalombardini.com or find a lot of her work on Instagram, https://www.instagram.com/isabellalombardini/ or to see the best range of her pictures, just search on Google IMAGES using the phrase 'Isabella Lombardini'. She has also been featured in Leica's S Magazine: http://s-magazine.photography/ceemes/en/photographers/isabella-lombardini-2269.html Cheers, David

    Re veneering speakers

    I would not normally spray wood. Even if you have never applied polish or wax, the chances are that wax spray polish has been used in the sameroom, and unless you get rid of every last bit of greasy waxy type stuff, it will affect the finish. I actually don't like seeing woodgrain under black or white paint, it seems really old fashioned. But each to their own! Why not get the stands AND the cabs wrapped in vinyl. Which is then removable if you or anyone else decides they want to do so.

    Re veneering speakers

    Go to a vinyl wrapping service for cars. They can do a beautiful job.....I would use a white matt....and maybe white satin paint on the stands. Don't forget to key them and degrease them first. I just checked on eBay and there is white grille cloth there....

    Re veneering speakers

    Furniture restorers or makers should be able to reveneer. But when you say white, do you mean white, or an even paler wood finish? And are you handy as a DIYer?
