  1. Having been contacted by one member 12 times by pm concerning this system and doing my best to be helpful, honest and polite I fear my patience is at an end. Please only serious buyers and all further questions within this post.
  2. Hi Pete, Sorry but I want to sell it as a top performer.
  3. End of year SALE! £450 plus postage before I throw them in the Bay.
  4. Christmas price drop £465 plus postage
  5. Yes a total pain in the a**. What lovely connectors to work with I feel your pain.
  6. Sorry to disagree Lawrence, the cable was constructed by myself to further improve these awesome phones. Cardas cable. Still available.
  7. Thanks for your comments, this is a top class combo but very few people are aware or the sound of a top class headphone system. This is the answer to a small room or sensitive neighbours.
  8. Due to lack of use I've decided to sell my Headphone system. Burson 160-DS Headphone Amplifier HiFiman HE-500 Headphones The headphones have been upgraded with the following...Cardas cable, Comfort ear pads (originals included) and leather head strap on bungee fixings. These mods take the performance and comfort to another level. When photographing these I noticed a small mark on the front faceplate of the Burson and have shown it clearly in the pictures, this is very hard to see in normal viewing and only when you catch it in the right light. But inthe interest of full disclosure I'm pointing this out. Both will come with all original cases and boxes. This really is a top class system for the headphone aficionado and yours for £500 plus postage. May split for £275 each plus postage Collection welcome. Treat yourself for Christmas
  9. Derwent Water Panorama Taken next to someone's lake house, imagine waking up to this every morning
  10. The closest I will ever get to shooting a Japanese landscape.
  11. I had a request for locations and settings for the first three photos All shots were taken on a Fujifilm XT-2 with 16-55 lens and 55-200 The duke boathouse had a three stop neutral density filter to still the water and was shot at f8 Derwent Water used a six stop nd filter to smooth the water at f11 on 55-200 at about 140mm The jetty shot was taken at Windemere no filters f11 then converted to black and white. If your shooting the lakes then invest in neutral density filters. Mine are by Breakthrough Photography, not cheap but definitely quality with zero colour cast. A little tale of the holiday. Left South Wales at 2am Saturday morning for five hour drive hoping for a sunrise session before going to the apartment. Nope! Road diversions and rain put pay to that idea, so we arrived in Kendal at 8am and grabbed four hours sleep before heading off to Keswick. Here is where my holiday was almost ruined, I was photographing Ashness Bridge when my shutter button detached from my camera walked back to the car thinking that was the end of my photography. Luckily my son had a blob of blu tac in his bag and I managed to reassemble the parts and put the blu tac over it to hold it in place. Not ideal as I shot the entire holiday with my battery grip attached using its shutter button and sliding the battery out to turn off the camera. Phew! A big thanks to blu tac. Camera is in for repair and should be back with me early next week. PLEASE DON'T THINK YOU NEED TO SPEND THIS SORT OF MONEY ON EQUIPMENT TO GET GREAT IMAGES Just look at those iPhone shots Grrrrrr

YouTube has some great videos on Lake District photography and locations. Good luck Gwyn
