Re: AoS

THIS is not like other forums, here you get real opinion as well as expert opinion from direct experience, open minded and not living up blind alleys, and THE TRUTH, don't judge us like the others especially TAS. My apologies for having a sense of humour. I thought the laughing smiley made the fact...

Re: AoS

I have looked because of this email and other comments earlier that he was able to do this. Even asked Terry if it was possible and it seems it is banned from the software. Anyway i would have no desire to do it, BUT it does show the mans dictator complex and paranoia if true. You can do it with ac...

Re: first "punk" music/track

There's no way you can call The Stooges / MC5 punk. Punk is a British music/fashion scene with the first releases coming out towards the end of '76. I'm talking The Sex Pistols, The Clash, X Ray Specs, The Damned, Generation X, Siouxsie and The Banshees ete. Everyone else just latched on to this, a...

Re: Superfi

Richer seems to have 'evolved' along with the market, as does (no, stop hitting me!) Sevenoaks. I receive regular advertising from them and a huge amount of it is now devoted to TVs and AV gear.

Re: first "punk" music/track

I'll chime in with the obvious "New Rose" by The Damned, and The Saints' (I'm) Stranded album, just to get 'em out of the way. :grin: It does, of course, depend on your definition of punk, and whether you consider American "punk" to be proper punk. In America, The Stooges and MC5 both released album...

<sarcasm>I very rarely intrude upon these inter-forum squabbles, but I do feel moved on this occasion to note that, in fairness to Marco, he was decent enough to point out precisely what Simon's JOB at AoS was.</sarcasm>

Re: Assburn lets it all hang out

I'm not silly enough to even attempt a definitive answer, because there's a 99.99% chance we'd fail to agree on a single album. I'd say it was when sixties 'psych' turned into sixties 'prog' but the actual, single, crossover album... :-? On the other hand - - Wendy Carlos? Beaver & Krause? Morton Su...

Re: Speakers

I appreciate that I'm ploughing a lone furrow here, but I've got a pair of Monitor Audio Silver RX2 speakers and I like very much how they sound in my main (NVA) system. I can only report what I hear, and I haven't owned hundreds of differing and different speakers like a lot of people here seem to ...
