Re: Should Huawei be removed from UK systems.

The Chinese, are a nation of lying, cheating and insanely cruel savages who deserve no place in a modern world. As CN211276 says, the entire civilised world needs to round on them now and force change upon them. They are almost solely responsible for the near extinction / extinction of so many of ou...

And better, I'm mean really better, not marzipan instead of chocolate.

Re: New Turntable wanted

It was slightly better pace and solidity of the bass that won the day for the Garrard over my Anniversary. If only I could of had the best of both! Swings and roundabouts.

Re: New Turntable wanted

If you like the sound of PT then I think you're going to struggle to find something that matches up sonically. I moved from the Anniversary to a 401 but it was a wrench and there's aspects of the Pink's performance that it can't hope to match - swings & roundabouts.

Re: How will covid19 (and brexit) affect your future finances ?

Personally, not a jot. I have months of work booked in and as soon as we're released back into society I'll be straight back at it, albeit with the added difficulty of social distancing. I could theoretically work now but as all the builder's merchants are shut I couldn't get any materials. I'm actu...

Re: Tweeter change?

Ok, I don't know if this will work as I've not tried this before. I know it's low res but it does actually show the typical sibilance quite accurately. Now Mary Black's voice is naturally a bit sibilant but not as bad as this. Now, let's see here.... [bbvideo]https://vimeo.com/user113897856/review/4...

Re: Tweeter change?

Ultimately, my problem is that I don't like things to be "bodged" and the Plasti Dip seems a bodge to me. Even if it had solved the problem completely it still would have played on my mind. I want it sorted but I want it done properly.

Re: Tweeter change?

If you had it before the doc plastidip them, plastidip will not be responsible despite some people's reservations. I'm not thinking that the Plastic Dip is causing the problem, it certainly tamed them a bit, but I'm wary that it has reduced the tweeters performance overall. They weren't doped in my...

Re: Tweeter change?

Thanks Doc, and others, for taking the time to respond. Managed to have a chat with Thomaz, (it is spelt with a z isn't it?), and he was pretty horrified by the Plasti-dip tweak! We are going to spend some time passing pictures and information back and forth to see if we can find out what's going on...
