  1. …then maybe Solos if you can track a pair down? They can be used anywhere in the world and go into standby too. Mick
  2. Ok - I’m not at home until the weekend but I’ll see if there are ten I want and let you know. thanks
  3. Hi - I appreciate you’re selling as a job lot but if you do decide to split, please let me know. I already have quite a few of the boxes so wouldn’t want to double up as much as I would do if I bought the lot. Mick
  4. It might also be availability of the CNC milling machines, as earlier Solos need casework. Mick
  5. There’s something on the Audacity forum about this, with talk of ‘region labels’, so it might be worth a read. Here’s the second page of the discussion:- https://forum.audacityteam.org/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=97952&sid=8dc0220ee1870f64534a03539bc0a797&start=10 Mick
  6. Passive is as valid a path as active, so long as the components are good enough. I had Aktiv Kabers with, first, LK100s, then AV5125s and finally 2250s. I then moved to Espeks, running those Aktiv with the 2250s. After some years I tried a single Klimax Twin and preferred passive with that to the Aktiv 2250s, although it was a very close run thing. Some years later I moved to Solos, and then changed the ‘speakers to passive Akubariks. More than happy with the system. Mick
  7. I love their later stuff, from Rubber Soul/Revolver onwards - I’ll be all over this when it’s released - but each to their own. We like what we like, and other folk having differing tastes to mine has never bothered me. I’ll still buy you a beer if we ever meet! Mick
  8. Thanks for the review, @Ian H- as soon as I’m able (and this daft fuel issue is out of the way) I’ll be over to see Colin, with LP12 and Radikal boxes in the boot of my car! Mick
  9. With you on that. I've hardly played the original since Naked... came out (although the 2009 remastered release has had a bit of airplay chez MickC)... Mick
  10. That’s very odd then. I’m using Roon too, but can only play those two tracks from the main album, whether I use Roon or the Qobuz app… Mick
  11. Just checked - although I can add the album, all songs apart from Across The Universe and Let It Be aren't yet available here(UK)... Mick
  12. That’s a great album. My introduction to Collister and Gregson was when I saw them on tour, supporting Leon Redbone a great many years ago. Their album of covers - Love is a Strange Hotel - is very good too. Mick
  13. Hi - I suspected they were just a visual guide back when I had Espeks, as different configurations meant using different connectors. However, the manual seems to suggest there’s circuitry:- Mick
  14. …and still no appearance by David, who’s not visited the Wam since the start of July. Maybe he’s decided forums/fora are huge time wasters! Hopefully just that and nothing to worry about. Mick
  15. We have 109s (and therefore 2k) in our second system, run off an MDSM/3. The system is never played very loud but we’ve never noticed any obvious harshness. Mick
  16. Yep, and iOS15. Kazoo, the Linn app and Roon Remote all working fine for me. Mick
  17. I’m using the REM 019 remote and the volume buttons work as they should, so yes, I’m guessing batteries are the issue. Mick
  18. Hi @Wenge1 - I remember you from the old forum! Welcome 'back'! Mick
  19. I had nothing but trouble with a large variety of powerline plugs, including ones from Netgear, Devolo and TP-Link. The music server sits two floors above the front room where the hifi is - we have a small loft conversion which we use as an office/PC area - and the link between the areas was constantly dropping. It’s quite possible the issues were down to our rubbish mains wiring, but I got so sick of it that I ran a CAT5 cable in a year ago, and we’ve had zero problems since. Mick
  20. Back when I had Aktiv Espeks powered by 3 2250s, the fans on the treble amp came on quite regularly, most likely for two reasons:- 1) they were in an Isoblue rack with very little clearance above each amp, and 2) the treble amp was above the other two, thus getting warmed by them as well as by its own circuitry. Never (yet) had the Solos complain though… Mick
