    Hi-fi inflation

    Bank of England inflation calculator says they should now cost £4453 all else being the same. https://www.bankofengland.co.uk/monetary-policy/inflation/inflation-calculator Audionote had some big price increases earlier this year, which I think the owner blamed on Brexit (he was very much a remainer for this reason).
  2. For small businesses it doesn't tend to work because there are never enough hours in the day as it is. Even in big companies you get lots of people working at weekends when it's a five day week. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  3. I think if you declare yourself officially homeless the council have to find you somewhere. It won't necessarily be some junkie hostel, it has got to be worth a try. And I don't mean actually make yourself homeless, just tell the council you are. As for your mental health, just hang on, try to be positive and things will get better. I think most people are different when you live with them. It is probably a shock to the system for your mum having you move back. Try to talk to her and find out what is annoying her and then show her you are trying to live there on her terms temporarily. The cat is a difficult one I know because you can't control the cat's behaviour, and they do like to scratch. Could the cat live with anyone else while you get sorted? My mate needed a temporary home for his cat when he moved abroad and my mum looked after it for a bit and that worked out OK.
  4. I emailed them and got told there is a waiting list. I asked to be added to it and they said they would add me then assign a number when they have availability. That was over a month ago.
  5. Sennheiser have got a potentially good offer on for the Euros https://en-uk.sennheiser.com/euro-2021-promo
  6. I understood about 20% of that 😃
  7. Pretty much my thoughts on this. I would expand the r&b reference to nearly all 21st century pop music, or basically anything that has auto tuned vocals. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  8. I think if I played Billie Eilish, even it had been mixed by Steve Hoffman and mastered as a Mobile Fidelity One Step, it would still make my system sound broken.
  9. Nice one. Good to hear a young person making guitar-based music rather than that rap drivel most of them seem to be into these days.
  10. Is this happening with both jack sockets? (The Mojo has two headphone sockets). If so could it be your headphone cable that's the problem?
  11. Could you get someone to look at it and tell you what the fault is? Then if it's not repairable at least you will know whether heat has caused it. On the subject of Suggies, I had to move mine to the top shelf because it was making the shelf above it very warm indeed.
  12. I think the reviewer is a frustrated poet. Either that or he works for Chord
  13. Thanks for all the advice. I ended up going for this stuff: https://www.tlc-direct.co.uk/Products/CAEXCAT5E.html It's solid core not stranded but hopefully I will be able to work with it. Slightly more expensive than the Kenable one so might be better quality. Now I just have to install it 😯
