Re: Inner sleeves for vinyl LPs

I thought i'd add this to this thread
where do people get their distilled water from to use for cleaning machines, all i can find in local shops is "de-ionised", not quite the same thing.
it is available on line, but not cheaply because of postage costs

Re: when do we have the 2017 ins and out thread?

cheaper to get some anthem M1s Having now spent a week with the M1s on loan, I've decided they're not for me. They are dramatic and impressive. But I found them harsh in places and everything seemed a bit overblown; out of balance. Not good with classical. Maybe just me/my system. Back to the NCore...

Re: Inner sleeves for vinyl LPs

the paper is not quite as thick as the ones that robert recommended, which i bought, but they are quite close to being very similar. I've just bought some, and will be buying more, i'm hoping to keep the cost down https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F290...

Re: Which speakers - PMC or B&W?

Thanks everybody for your replies, gives me a lot to think about. I currently have the speakers bi-wired as that was a huge improvement over single. One set of cables have no name on them. I got them from Sevenoaks a few years back. I can only describe them as beige colour rubber, very flexible and...

Re: Which speakers - PMC or B&W?

I would do something else first. Id get another x-power, or swop for a pair of mono x. Why? Speakers appear to be the way to get a different sound signature. You'd need to know whether you like either of the sound signatures of these two speakers. To be sure you need to do alot of listening, ideally...
