Re: Arctic Monkeys - Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino

I got 4 tracks in and gave up. I’m not a big enough fan to persevere but fair play to them for evolving.

Re: New Computer

Blimey, is it still that messy? When you buy a new Mac you have the option on startup to plug in your backup drive and put everything back where it was. Is Windows 10 not the same?

Hi. I’m parked outside but the door is locked. Are you on your way?

Re: Turntable vs Streamer What's best? Analogue vs Digital?

Love my Gyro. Just waiting on some upgrades to arrive at my local dealers as it happens. :)

I don't regret spending £500 on a MC. Didn't compare any though. Getting a demo of different carts is unrealistic.

Can I also echo the sentiment of slow down and enjoy your upgrades one at a time!

Make sure you invest in a record cleaning machine. The Project one is a good buy.

Re: Turntable vs Streamer What's best? Analogue vs Digital?

What music do you listen to? If the answer is contemporary music from the last 25 years then a vinyl setup isn't going to be anything more than an (albeit very enjoyable) novelty as your records are going to be cut from digital masters. Therefore, don't go mad and improve your digital front end as f...

Cyrus One HD. It's a Cyrus One with a DAC.

Re: Goodbye to Cyrus (Almost)

No shoeboxes left on the rack here either. Cyrus seem to be moving away from high end and into the lifestyle hi-fi market sadly.

Re: What vinyl did you spin recently?

Tonight's The Night isn't one of my favourite Neil Young albums but the newly released live version is fantastic. All analogue with a great live warmth to it. http://img.cdn2.wmgecom.com/media/catalog/product/cache/63/image/600x/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/n/e/neilyoung_roxylive_vinyl_1.png

Re: Stereo 200 turning off at volume, more power? x300 sig?

Where are you located? With due respect to RS, my advice would be to find a proper Hi-fi dealer and go and listen to some stuff, maybe even at home if you're lucky. If the Cyrus/Dali sound is ticking all the boxes then I don't see why the 300's wouldn't go loud enough with the right pre-amp. Cyrus a...

Re: last jedi

I thought this was barely better than the prequels and a huge disappointment after The Force Awakens.
