Re: Streaming Spotify through Gramofon - improvements?

Looking around for info of that Hudson bass, it appears to be a copy of the Cort Curbouw - possibly made in the Cort factory. Hudson is Cranes of Cardiff's own brand (although I got mine on eBay) and from what I've been able to find out, someone at Crane's is a friend of someone at Tanglewood and h...

Re: What was the first record you bought

I was really into Glam Rock, especially T.Rex. Then Bowie came along who I thought was a cut above the rest. Bought all his albums on release until he sold out with Lets Dance. During the 70s I also got into heavier rock and prog. In the 80s I was a fan of NWOBHM and Hair Metal, going to a lot of gi...

Re: Hi-Fi Honesty

I got the impresion that dealers were under pressure when I had the demo of the LP12. When I said I was less than impressed the salesman put it down to my choice of music. :angry-screaming: This was like a red rag to a bull. :angry-fire:

Re: Streaming- Naim Musical Fidelity etc

Almost everything I play is streamed, either from Qobuz or ripped CDs. My set ups are detailed in my signature. The main system is not cheap but putting things in context I do not believe a vinyl or CD front end could compete at the same price. I have experienced two quantum leaps in SQ. The first w...

Re: Obits

Shocked and very saddened to read about the sudden passing of Paul Raymond. Saw him performing with UFO last month and he looked fine. They are one of my all time favourite bands who I have seen on numerous occassions. You never know what is round the corner. R.I.P.

Re: AoS

AOS used to be a lively place with a lot going on, healthy debates and lots of technical articles, then most of the interesting people slowly got banned for mostly no good reason. Just looking at the 15 most recent posts one word daily and 2 words daily and someone selling an amp that no one there ...
