  1. One of my German colleagues has just bought a Marantz NR1200 stereo receiver, 75 Wpc into 8 ohms. Any experience of speaker matching?
  2. In my teen years it would have been the air cooled RD400. One of my schoolmates got crippled on one.
  3. I'll be 60 in a couple of weeks, so I thought I'd buy something a bit more comfortable for my old age.
  4. And it looks and drives a lot better than the dull-as-ditchwater Mercedes
  5. The A Class came 25th out of 27 in a What Car reliability survey, so expect a few costs. They are also noisy and have an uncomfortable ride; avoid the AMG versions and big wheels. An A3 is a better bet.
  6. This is a great pre. We did a pre-amp bake-off a few years ago, and the L300 was beaten only by a Robert Koda which cost $31k...
  7. Pioneer have some universal players, but have stopped supplying to the UK because of Brexit.
  8. My mate had a Herald convertible with a Triumph 2500 S motor in it - it went everywhere sideways!
  9. If you want some future proofing/repairability then an Esoteric or a dCS with an Esoteric mech would be a good bet. They will also have decent built-in DACs, and some have digital inputs as well.
  10. Remember that they are not the brightest. They won, the UK lost - now they're pretending that it isn't so.
  11. Rees-Mogg reckoned it would be 40 years before the Brexit economic negative turned into a positive. So most Brexit voters have voted to spend the rest of their lives worse off. Of course Rees Mogg will be fine - he relocated his business to the EU.
  12. Not often you see them looking as bad as they sound.
