Bit soon Andy they have only been in the system a couple of days, so things have not "loosened" up yet.

I will write a few words in a month or so once I understand what they new toys are doing, but initial impressions are good.

My bloody Tannoys are singing tonight thought 15" and smashing out some Chicane.

Still looking for my 8 inch drivers for the Allison Sixes. Either the removers have put them somewhere odd or they are in my mate's garage buried under stuff the removers wouldn't put in store. Raspberry Pi ordered too.

I've just been rebuilding the power supply of my second Marantz CD73 which has started to give trouble (notorious for dry joints) and I found one too! As I had most here I've replaced a number of the PS caps, I just need a few more which should arrive mid week to complete, so it should be rocking again soon - we'll see?

Oh yes indeed Stu. A rather hapless one though :oops: Too many cock-ups that I'd dare to mention here but I am learning slowly :o

I am missing the highlights on terrestial tv, that was never a problem when Sky had it. BT must have paid a hell of a lot and I will not subscribe to them as Sky is better. I think that Sky were of the opinion that this was one to let go of because of the time difference greatly restricting live viewing figures.
