    Recommendations for Organ Music sought...

    Hi Stu, Simon Preston playing Handel organ concertos on EMI is a corker - is that the one you heard? - wonderful recording. Try & listen to this past forum recommendation - pilloried by the smarty pants on here ()but it is a superb recording .

    Tommy Smith R.I.P.

    Tommy Smith - Shanks' hardest & from a long gone time before money took over the game & when clubs were represented by some local talent. Saw Tommy living up to his reputation at St. James' Park playing Newcastle back in early 70's. He helped to make that fixture unmissable. RIP Tommy.

    Musical fidelity massive!!!!!

    Hi Cno, No I haven't heard the NV600, so my comments aren't much help The 600 & 800 aren't too far apart in terms of spec - 200W v 300W, both with a claimed 120A P-P output current capability. The 800 plays all types of music superbly - I've owned one for a few years & love it - but when you try it - drive it hard. Good luck.

    Musical fidelity massive!!!!!

    The 800 has very decent tonal & soundstaging abilities beyond earlier big MF integrated amps. Its full & friendly sense of latent power & quick dynamics tempt you to wind up the wick to test your system & if you listen to metal you might crave more attack. It'll possibly depend on your music preferences.

    Like a cock in a fanny - it fits perfectly.

    He was still honing his technique which came to fruition next album.

    What are you listening to right now?

    Haven't played that for a while HH - must put it on again. Not the last word in SQ, but not as disappointing as Absolute Dissent & some others for compression.

    Thought for the day. 24/4/17 Radio 4

    Ironic how religion naysayers, questioning millenia of blind acceptance, have over-egged their argument and unintentionally emerged as a pseudo religion. Still, nothing like the fear of God to regiment the innocent.
