Re: Flavours of the month hi-fi and what happened to them

Devialet were flavour of the half year about 5 years ago, particularly on the What Hi-fi Forum. The people that bought Devialet amplifiers liked them a lot. There were conflicting opinions from people that had demo'd them and not bought them, saying that they were a bit of a cold and bland to listen...

Re: Opinions on how the Government have handled the coronavirus outbreak

And what about all the long term premature deaths through poverty that will be caused by the draconian, economy wrecking restrictions imposed by the UK Government? As well as the (repeated) precedent of the UK Government taking total control on the pretext of what it decides is a crisis? World War I...

Re: The Driver/Enclosure relationship

Docfoster, did you consider using 3/4" plywood instead of the MDF? And if so, what made you choose MDF?

Re: It's so Ethereal

I've used Fing for a while now. Very useful, especially for the IP addresses for all my streaming devices. I use the Network -> LAN Devices page on my router, which is also my DHCP Server, to find MAC addresses and IP addresses of all devices in my home network. Makes sense to me. Go to the device ...
