  1. I've had my rcd 991 for yonks, a great cd player which I now use as a transport. The drawer mechanism is at times hilarious in operation!
  2. Or you could save up a few more pennies and aquire this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RARE-Commercial-Virgin-Megastores-EMI-CLASSICS-EMINENCE-Upright-Multi-CD-Player/153636212702?hash=item23c56e8fde:g:Y2kAAOSwe8ldRuJf
  3. Daft price, but that thing is really clean.
  4. Pick up the pieces - Average White Band
  5. One benefit of the spiked feet (and this can be measured 😏) is that it shortens the depth of the the amp just enough that it fits on my rack, to the millimetre.
  6. Jules, as a long time Tinnitus sufferer myself (commercial diving caused mine) you have both my sympathy and my hopes for your recovery from your new condition. I still hope for a cure one day myself, it would be lovely to be able to sit in silence now and again.
  7. I run an nv 600 into stand mounted speakers and from that pespective it is more than adequate, I agree with Von Krolock, you get sucked into turning it up pretty much constantly, or I do anyway. Makes my Ushers sing. 600 or 800, nice decision to have make, good luck!
  8. From the first time I heard it and to this day, I cannot listen to Spirit of Eden without tearing up. RIP Mark.
  9. I still buy CDs, I like to own a physical media. When the tinterweb finally eats itself us and vinyl collectors will emerge from ruins noisily triumphant . On a side note I like the commitment to the whole album that a physical media, Cd or vinyl gives me, a more relaxed frame of listening.
  10. I bought a pair of AE flootstanders over the phone from them, they had sold out of the ones I wanted so the salesman gave me the next model up for the same money. Sad that they have gone under.
  11. Cambridge DACmagic 100, would be my recommendation, great little DAC and even brand new is a stone cold bargin.
  12. Dave, as a matter of interest, do you guys hold any second-hand stock? I was thinking specifically of the NU VISTA 800, I might fancy a wee upgrade at some time in the future.
  13. I really don't think you'll be dissappointed, the MF will be a good upgrade over the Audiolab IMO. As for the cardinal hifi sin, location means that I have never auditioned any of my gear ever and with your option of returning it then I'd say it's a no brainer really. Good luck with it.
  14. Dyed in the wool cd guy here but I recently took on Roon and Tidal and I have to say I find the whole thing very entertaining. My laptop is starting to fail which is all the excuse I need to go shopping. I might give building a fanless nuc pc a try. Decent tech is just so affordable these days.
