Re: Muse live

It wasn't quiet.. When I tried to say something to my wife she couldn't hear what I was saying (well that's her excuse anyway). For those who love Genesis with Peter Gabriel, Muse is a bit modern I know but WE really enjoyed it. Sounds good. PA technology mean sound quality can often be much better...

Re: Muse live

I've seen Muse live 3 times and they are an absolute tour-de-force power trio. Matt must be one of the most talented musicians in popular music, amazing guitarist, pianist and singer... makes you sick really ;D Regarding sound levels - noise laws now, in the UK at least, mean that many outdoor shows...

I would be sad to see this forum go as it has been so much part of my hi-fi journey over the last twelve years.


Agree - the question is do you enjoy running the forum?

Re: Rocketman

Mark Kermode was raving about the film and gave it a huge thumbs up. I'll try and catch it on the small screen (but big sound) system in due course

Re: Speaker Isolation - pretty amazing results..

Update. Things are going well with the speaker isolation. In addition to the direct benefits already described the in-direct benefit is that it's a lot easier to move the speakers around generally and so play with positioning and fine tuning 8) Recently I also acquired a couple of IanMac filters fro...

Re: Inexpensive DACs from the far east.

The Topping D50 I ordered has arrived. ... Early days, but after 12 hrs running I have to admit Im gobsmacked at the performance. I cannot distinguish any difference between the SQ of the Topping D50 and my Benchmark DAC1 HDR via Cyrus Smartpower and KEF ref 1.2. using CD 16/44 and my Renderer for ...

Speaker Isolation - pretty amazing results..

Something I've been meaning to do for a while - the Leema Xone's have spikes and due to wooden floors I've always used metal spike shoes. All well and good however moving the speakers is a pain since you need 3 pairs of hands to get each shoe exactly under the spike. But hey, no big deal. Anyway thi...
