  1. I've always found that my system sounds best when I am alive and my house hasn't burned down, hence normal fuses are best.
  2. Erm, a fairly normal definition of state subsidised is that the state meets part of the cost itself? Not happening with RPA. And if the losses are less than the commercial premiums, isn't that by definition the government doing it cheaper and hence more efficiently?
  3. Not state subsidised (from the recent consultation on reduction in rates), just a government run (albeit administered by Willis) scheme being better value than private sector offerings.
  4. Private insurance more efficient and cheaper? RPA for academy schools shows the complete opposite.
  5. This is Linn that still produce new hybrid SACDs despite calling it a dead format in the link?
  6. No. If you were an idiot it would be noted, but the only people calling bullying were a known trouble maker and a sock puppet. There was also the awful behaviour of lending out equipment, inviting people into their houses and in one case from an identified bully holding a bakeoff specifically for new people.
  7. An output transformer would hide any difference in sound if it wasn't attached to a completed 300B amp...
  8. It's a Kontrapunkt, so it is at least a few years old and it is second hand. I smell the slight whiff of bovine byproduct in the description of how much use it has had, having had a previously much used B go off centre after many sides.
  9. A mid 90s Sony tuner I have shows about an 8dB difference in reported signal strength going from first switch pn to steady state (c. 10 mins).
  10. First listen to http://www.prestoclassical.co.uk/r/Naxos/8557766 Given the St Luke's Passion, not what I was expecting.
