How do they do that for £6??!!

Didn't see anyone running for the hills...

£800 cable, though :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Which reminds me that Dave did disappear for an inordinately long time when a strikingly pretty young lady arrived and requested a coaxial cable for her Sky dish!

I know, just pulling your chain.

Oh, hell, I'm starting to sound like Marco, too. He is omnipresent through smut-ual intercourse. We're all doomed!

Omnipresent? Well, he would appear to employ several usernames...

The size and voice makes him omni present where ever he goes. I wouldn't get within 3 feet of him if I could avoid it in case something jumped across or the fumes reached :lol:

I thought that the standard of speakers at the bake-off on Sunday was high.
It helped that every speaker that I heard whilst I was there was of a genre that I like.
Either high efficiency or sealed box. And all of them with adequately sized bass drivers.

IE no crappy slimline low efficiency ported speakers with 6" mid-bass cones.

Thanks for the quality pictures, some interesting designs and sounds like a good day out.
That linear power supply is of interest too, thinking of trying one on my Dac and that might fit the bill. Any chance of a link or make and please Doc, I am assuming from the pics it is yours?
