Re: Steam X2 in da house!

Even MP3 sounds great! I'm so pleased with the Steam X2. I'm listening to radio, which is MP3 of course, but depending on the radio station, bitrate can be up to 256 Kbps, and it sounds almost as good as CD level. Compared to the digital radio that I can get via my TV decoder, the sound is so much ...

Had a very straightforward day (working @ home), then out for beer and curry with some friends - I suppose that's what you do when you reach 45... ;D


did you think of having a 45rpm do, where everyone has to bring a 45 rpm record?

Are you planning to see some gigs in the autumn?

Re: Football : premiership 2017

i hope man utd don't win.
i suspect that spurs might have been challenging, but they are playing at wembley for the season, so i expect that will stop them challenging. They might not make top 4

Re: Which speakers on Cyrus pre/power

.... I was actually being a bit flippant in my remark. I'm pretty sure you won't be able to purchase a pair of Spendor A6r for £900 ... hence my wink on the post. These retail new for around £2.8k so 2nd hand you'd be looking at say £1800 to £2000 I'd think. If you want 'stronger' bass than B&W...
