Re: Sage advice

Yeah I saw the PFM thread - maybe dial down the enthusiasm to below 100% :)

Re: Unhappy return to vinyl

Take it back if you can - as Chris says you've gone in too low.

If you have a budget in mind that you're comfortable with it should be possible to spec you something competitive sound wise.

Re: Stylus alignment on the cheap

You'll spend that on a decent budget electronic stylus gauge and to be honest I'm always more confident with the balance scale. When I bought mine (a few years back) it was about £15. You should find one cheaper than £32 though. In my experience VTF has just as much influence on the sound as alignme...

Re: Stylus alignment on the cheap

So let me get this straight, you want to lash out £10k on a Koetsu cartridge but don't want to pay £10 for a stylus tracking weight gauge? :) Cant go wrong with one of these to be honest - https://www.amazon.co.uk/SHURE-SFG2-DJ-accessories-Vinyle/dp/B00006I5SD/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1498643607&a...

Re: Has the official Cyrus forum gone ?

Someone asked him to remove all their posts ever in one part of the ongoing moderation saga Best left as a fond memory. I see our friend has recently signed up to The Wam and is organising a bake off, presumably to have a chat about his Islamaphobia. https://hifiwigwam.com/forum/profile/115369-spri...

Re: Has the official Cyrus forum gone ?

Least useful hifi forum ever. Didn't listen to consistent advice about the ridiculous clunky platform they chose to host it on, kept going on about their developer! WTF just move it to a different one that works, simple. Then they destroyed it themselves by starting a Facebook site which has now att...

Re: more police cuts in numbers

Everyone's playing politics. The actual numbers required, efficiency and the model of delivery, the best place to invest etc are unlikely to be found in the sound bites between the protagonists. It's exactly the same in health. None of the politicians or leaders of organisations and professional rep...

Re: Chord Mojo DAVE etc

Nah, they'll knock out something else with most the tech of DAVE in a cheaper format at some point to exploit the commercial potential of the design.

Re: What's the point of wireless speakers?

Possibly cross purposes again.

The OP mentioned possible degradation of sound. I said that may not be a consideration for the target buyer.

Re: What speaker cables for Cyrus amps?

I haven't read the article yet, but will do so as it looks interesting. However, I did a search on the word "Chord" and there are no instances of that word in the article. Whilst there may be other evidence pointing to Chord cheating in demos, I think its a bit dodgy to accuse them of doi...

Re: What speaker cables for Cyrus amps?

Alright I read the whole roger-russell article ( how many have? - he does go on) and compared it my own experience. Not at home - too many variables - but as previously reported, at a demo by Chord. They had a 'set' system. I forget the amplifier but the speakers were KEF Ref1 and source was a Chor...

Re: What's the point of wireless speakers?

Not every prospective buyer of hifi is a paranoid OCD neurotic obsessed with chasing inestimably small and largely imaginary gains in audible sound quality :)

Lots of buyers will happily trade the benefit of no wires with sound quality differences that they may not care too much about.
