    Home built DIY passive here... Silver S&B traffos and a direct input which bypasses the selector switch, also the S&B plus 6db permanently wired in, not switched. Exceeds any active pre I've had in the system. I think the active/passive debate is a bit like LED screen versus a projector...once your'e used to a projector, then screens, even good ones, look unnatural and hyped. Space, a clean as a whistle top end and a lack of congestion when things get complicated. And outstanding delineation and propulsion in the bass. It would take something both special and untypical for me to return to active.
  3. Played Vaughan Williams Lark Ascending. Twice. Played Yello twice too.
  4. Had one sub. Got another. It was better.

    Huawei P20 Pro. How good in your experience?

    Have a Oneplus 6, and use it a lot. Its a pretty good camera, and its a pretty good camera I have with me at all times. It has revitalised my interest in photography, and I occasionally think maybe I should drop a wedge on a nice DSLR or similar. But I know myself, and know I won't carry it at all times - so the phone will be the one getting the nice shots...so why bother?
