  1. Less than 24 hours between conception and completion, impressive! I never realised these things were possible without at least a 3 week period of prevarication
  2. Looks fabulous and liking the new colour scheme. You always seem to have the most fast moving developments in kit and room, I bet a number of us can see parts that have been influenced from responses you have received to posts on here. Really pleased it is all sounding so good, well deserved for all the effort and open engagement you put into it.
  3. Makes sense Rick and I hope you are keeping well. Stunning looking speakers and Rick’s a gent to deal with - he may even help you work out how to load them into your car!
  4. Flipping ‘eck Rick, I have one pair of your cast offs - one can only imagine on the exotica you decide to keep!
  5. I wonder - if you had some drawings with dimensions- these could be 3D printed?
  6. Julian (aka Joolz) will be a big loss to this community, particularly to those of us in the south of the country. In addition to his contributions to this forum, he was a regular attendee at Bake Offs where his extensive knowledge and personable nature made him a pleasure to spend time with. I loved his honesty, never afraid to give an opinion that was always constructive and generous in sharing his experience. I think many of us in the south attended and will remember the Bake Off he hosted in 2019 - it was a great day and one on which he was also able to proudly show off all the work he had completed on his house, another labour of love for him. I was lucky to be able to catch up with him a couple of times in the last few months and he seemed to be in good form and recovering well from his previous health scare. We had already made plans to travel to Lurch's Bake Off together a couple of weekends ago, so it is a shock as to how quickly all this has all now happened. Extending my condolences to the family at this difficult time. We will miss you Julian.
  7. For all round capabilities, the one I have now, fortunately. However, there was something about the Lowther PM6 equipped Horning speakers I owned in the ‘90’s - especially on vocals - that has never been bettered for me though.
  8. Wishing you all the best Joolz. If there is anything I can do, don’t hesitate to ask.
  9. Irrespective of the decor (or the kit!), a critical part of getting the vibe is to get the lighting right - an object lesson in how to do it right here. Bravo!
  10. There has been some excellent advice here Andy. It may be far removed from your original question, but considering things from a system perspective is really important, especially with a potential big spend. I have learnt a lot from the experience both on here and going out and listening to others set ups. I would definitely take your time and take advantage of the offers of support on here.
  11. I use these spring units under my valve amp, adjusting the number of springs to balance the uneven weight distribution as Newlash describes. They are clever things but mechanically noisey, so I can see why Richard would struggle directly under a turntable. For speakers, particularly heavier ones, I would still firmly recommend extending the DIY and going for properly spec'd individual springs from one of the online retailers and building a plinth system around them. For lighter equipment loads, the vintage aircraft spring units I have posted about before, kick the Nobsound units into the weeds.
  12. I was waiting for this one! i mean it's not how I would do it, but I can't deny it's stunning
  13. Ah, so pink must be 12 degrees north of the hydrogen zen ballpark?
  14. Now that is like one of those pictures from a lifestyle magazine - where even are the cables?
