Dudy - I'm back in town 3 or 4 timesa year, and always make a point of eating there - it's a cracking Indian, which I guess you know seeing as you mentioned it.

Earl, you have been busy these last few weeks, eh? Nice bases for the speakers and a new tuner - was it a purely cosmetic change on the tuner front, or is there something about the TEAC that you did not have with the CA? (note to self - realises the TEAC does FM as well as DAB)

The TEAC was something I'd been looking-out for for a while, this one came up secondhand, in mint condition, for less than half RRP, so I bought it blind: it does DAB and FMMuch better than the Cambridge, and FM at least as well, if slightly differently, to the Denon. So I have fewer AND smaller boxes. Result :)! (If more luck than judgement...)

See: http://forum.hifichoice.co.uk/viewtopic.php?p=185745#185745for more waffle...
