    What's your morning song

    the nu-vista sound ?

    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.

    Whom the Gods would destroy

    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.

    Musical fidelity massive!!!!!

    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!

    RIP Mark Hollis

    From the first time I heard it and to this day, I cannot listen to Spirit of Eden without tearing up. RIP Mark.

    CD Alive and Well?

    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.

    Superfi closes stores

    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.

    Marantz CD17 ki sig- how good is it?

    Cambridge DACmagic 100, would be my recommendation, great little DAC and even brand new is a stone cold bargin.

    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.

    Musical Fidelity M3si - any experience?

    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.

    Roon Core help

    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.

    Seriously??????

    Or you could just nick the one off the kettle, probably work and sound just as good.

    HMV going into administration

    Shame, hope they find a buyer. Funny though these things seem to happen after the xmas spend on shop vouchers has peaked, redeem them quick!
