    I was tempted for a minute then I realised that I already had quite a nice power amp . Buy with confidence from Ron who is a super guy to deal with. GLWTS Graeme

    Sorry but not impressed.

    Sorry to be lazy but I got to the end of page 2 and then just posted. I hope that I haven't missed anything mega and I may troll (oops) trawl through the rest later. So here's my take. I hate the megastore and now very rarely look at it - bring back the classifieds, with a proper reply and response format. The rest I don't mind at all, I've got used to it and the fact that it looks different from other forums is no bad thing. My main concern however is that the baby has kind of been thrown out with the bathwater, many many contributors who made me laugh or snarl have gone and with them has gone a lot of the Wam's heart and soul.

    Well that's a big shock. Jack gave me help and advice on more than one occasion and I didn't even buy my Modwright pre from him. If you happen to read this Jack I know that high end hi-fi has been a difficult business for some time so I wish you all the best for your future projects. Graeme

    Vasken's Obituary

    I've just seen this, what a shame he was a lovely man, courteous, friendly and always interested in anything that you had to say. For a while we had the same CDP and record deck and he could never understand why I sold my Electrocompaniet CDP. The way that he spoke about his speakers you could see that they were something special. My condolences to his family and friends. Graeme
  5. Like many others made a 7:00am decision to abort this morning. I was up for it but sons who were coming with me were both doubtful. Pah, younger generation no bottle! Or just maybe more sense than septagenarian Dad.

    One of the AN/Es is back at Audio Note for the week (rubber being replaced) but the new amp is so bl**dy good that even streaming mp3 quality Amazon Music through my second system Monitor Audio Bronze BR1 bookshelf speakers sounds more than acceptable. Ah - no picture. The site is telling me I can only upload 81 kb - it seems to reduce every time that I post? Anyway it's Prentice Piece (The First Three Decades) by the excellent Dick Gaughan.
