    Dunkirk film: Is there anything right?

    I liked it very much. I've seen it three times. The only credibility gap I had was the length of the glide of the Spitfire in the end. And the seat fabric pattern in the train at the end. I liked the spare dialog. The shifted time. The complete lack of love interest. The no happy ending for the random accident to the lad on the boat - luck comes all ways, fortunately and unfortunately. I found it spellbinding. Subsequent viewings release more detail, there's a lot in this film. Could have done without the America-pleasing flatulence at the very end, but all in all a class act.

    Turntable etc.

    I had one with an SME for a good few years, when I was younger. My partner had one a bit later with a rega RB300. I was pleased enough at the time, but noticed a substantial gain in SQ moving up ,and it was up, to a LP12 People used to say the Roksan was better than the Linn - I certainly thought the design really well thought out, and more brainwork in evidence than the Linn. So I imagine it would comfortably better the TD160. Note, I have more recently heard a TD160 sound really good - Audioflyer (Sharif')s, but I think he'd rebuilt and modified it extensively. £695 sounds steep to me, unless the cartridge is something stellar. But then I'm a tight 8ugger who likes to pick stuff up for nowt!

    I don't have direct experience of the Roksan, but I've had a couple of Thorens 160s - I'd go for the Roksan. What arm does it have?

    18" to 15" reduction ring and chuck in some Monitor Golds...could be nice, not a million miles away from a rectangular GRF.
