Re: Last Live Listen

Saw South African blues-rocker Dan Patlansky at Bury Met on Sunday night. A really good set and he was ably supported by local rockers Gorilla Riot. Well worth the £20. I was also supposed to be seeing Eddie and the Hot Rods last Friday at the same venue but that was cancelled due to illness apparen...

No more uncool than my love for all things Elkie Brooks ( a fellow Salfordian ).

Re: Forums and NVA

I was aware of NVA and intrigued enough to start reading HFS. Through this forum I got in in contact with former member here Jimbob who lived nearby, and he kindly brought round his P50/A40's to my house one afternoon for a listen. That was enough for me to be sold on NVA gear.

Try the Spotty plugin for Squeezebox

Is the correct answer.

Go into LMS 3rd Party plug ins and look out for Spotty. I've been using it a few months now and it works flawlessly for me.

Abba followed by Weather Report followed by Dion followed by Gong etc. You get the picture. I did not know you could do this, thanks for the info. It w...

Re: Speaker Sale Weekend

I'm very happy with my Cubettes at present but am pretty sure that some time in the future I'll venture further up into Cube 2 or 1 territory. However, this latest promotion is not the right time for me finanacially.

Re: Remote control

95% of my listening these days is through my Squeezebox Touch whether it be internet radio, Spotify, or streaming from my NAS. I use the Squeezebox controller to adjust the volume so no need for any other remote control. The only time I adjust the volume dial on my P20 is when I occasionally use my ...
