Re: Time dilation

now jules , you might have to explain this one very slowly to me !! what does it all mean ? We think time is a constant but it is in fact the speed of light is a constant. What this means is that time slows the faster you are moving. A very minor difference unless you are travelling near the speed ...

Lady in Red by Chris de Burgh

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FC1C4g8YOA4

It rained almost every day on our honeymoon in Monténégro but on a coach trip we dodged the tour and went into a hotel to buy cake. It had piped music and they played Lady in Red.

Re: Cyrus apa7.5 + Smartpower > Kef r500 Query

Do try putting the monos on treble too as it is not just power that is better than the smarts.

Many have tried this type of thing but most end up upgrading to a single pair of even better monos.

Re: update or repair Av Master 8.0

The trick with satellite connection is to switch an HD channel which is always detected and then switch directly to the channel you want.

Some channels seem to mess up format detection on satellite!

Cyrus has 5in cone compared with Wharfedale 4in. The cabinet volume seems to be much bigger too.

Re: APA 7.5 - What Next?

Hi Ace (one of the few members I have met in person; to buy a Cd8x IIRC)

I have a similar problem with my Mono X. The rest of my system should have better power amps but it still seems a big jump in price even to get to X300's.

Re: Brahms

I find I feel like a certain type of music rather than one composer.

For example if I am in a opera mood I might listen to operas by Pucunii and Verdi or if I am in violin mood listen to Vivaldi and Mozart violin music.

It might just be I am showing my ignorance of course 8)
