Re: Has this happened to other CU members?

Tops of speakers are designed for putting supertweeters on, nothing else!

Re: Music new to you in 2018

Gade's string quartets. I have loved his symphonies for some time, but only heard the string quartets this year.
Britten: Peter Grimes. Again new to me this year.
Hans Rott: symphony. Big influence on Mahler, whose first symphony followed 8 years later. Not performed until 1969!

Re: Vertical Turntable

Watchtower Society made vertical phonographs used from the late 30's and definitely a portable vertical one in 1940.

Re: A last, long goodbye to Cyrus

I see the fractal speaker cables are now listed in your signature system. Does this mean that you did cave in and buy them? If so, good for you. I thought they were stunning, but I'm stickng with Isolda for now. My new amps are fantastic as things are. You must come hear them, Steve. :) (don't bring...

Re: Concerts / gigs

Tonight the Ferio Saxophone Quartet, a free concert at the Conway Hall near Holborn in London. The saxophone quartet were excellent. Playing repertoire from their latest cd "Revive", they played for just short of an hour followed by a ten-minute q&a with the assistant editor of "...

Re: A last, long goodbye to Cyrus

Slightly off topic, but not far, I just obtained a second Pair of Fractal F1 rca interconnects, which I have put between my preamp and my power amps. The difference (over dct300) was clear immediately. More definition and 'air' around instruments, much better bass, deep and well-controlled. I manage...

Re: A last, long goodbye to Cyrus

I am currently listening to some fine string quartet music from my Primaluna Valve amps into Tannoy Stirling SE speakers with Townshend dct interconnects and - wait for it - F1 Fractal speaker cable! Swapped out the Isolda and put in the Townshend F1 Fractal and it is quite amazing. I do find they a...

Re: A last, long goodbye to Cyrus

Be sure to tell us your findings, Steve. I think the fractal f1 rca i/cs are great.
