    Same here. And I just discovered an interesting radio station via Sahel Sounds who sell through Bandcamp.

    New bike

    Hmm, maybe I should consider that. 2 weeks ago at Brands; highsided in the wet. And a 5 hour drive home afterwards!

    Yarqin tube amps

    They weren't related. I can cover two topics in one post.

    Yarqin tube amps

    That's the trouble with trying to be clever; the failure rate is high. And 220V versions tend to run valve heaters, in particular, too hot. I changed resistor values in my MS-12B phono amp to compensate.

    Reverse Flounce

    Glad you're back, it's been boring here for quite a while. How long before you're banned, I wonder?

    Sandwich construction...?

    That's what mine are. It's an old method, first used, IIRC, by Gilbert Briggs of Wharfedale fame.

    Personalised/Private Reg Plates?

    DVLA. I nearly bought a plate from them for my bike (they had exactly the one I wanted), but decided £600 would be better spent on some track days.

    What are you listening to right now?

    CD. I have this available on Qobuz, but I like it so much I bought the CD, which comes with a DVD. So now I can burn a CD for the car and copy it to my music player for the gym.

    Girl with guitar. Not! Qobuz.

    IPL Acoustics S4TL speakers

    He has nice big house. I went there on the bike to buy some planar tweeters several years ago. I had a listen to some of his speakers there and they sounded pretty good.
