  1. Polo is crappy, like all other WVs. Fiesta is a much better car for less money.
  2. One of my German colleagues has just bought a Marantz NR1200 stereo receiver, 75 Wpc into 8 ohms. Any experience of speaker matching?
  3. In my teen years it would have been the air cooled RD400. One of my schoolmates got crippled on one.
  4. I'll be 60 in a couple of weeks, so I thought I'd buy something a bit more comfortable for my old age.
  5. And it looks and drives a lot better than the dull-as-ditchwater Mercedes
  6. 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.
  7. 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...
  8. Pioneer have some universal players, but have stopped supplying to the UK because of Brexit.
  9. My mate had a Herald convertible with a Triumph 2500 S motor in it - it went everywhere sideways!
  10. 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.
  11. Remember that they are not the brightest. They won, the UK lost - now they're pretending that it isn't so.
  12. 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.
  13. Not often you see them looking as bad as they sound.
  14. My system in my office at work (I haven't set foot in it for months!) is a Topping D10 USB DAC and a Pro-Ject Stereo Box Phono S. I needed compact plus phono stage and I couldn't find that in one box.
  15. Surely you will refuse vaccinations as you refuse other medical treatments? Jehova will look after you, won't he?
  16. Reality check: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-42340677 Short version - just lies.
  17. I have a pair. They are great. Exhibited them a few times at Scalford, people couldn't believe there was no subwoofer. Pay about £650 used.
  18. No, the Moon will be expecting a line-level signal as it has a volume control. If you use the pre-out you will have two volume controls active.
  19. Christian friends tell me the JWs are not Christian - it's some made-up American crap.
  20. A friend is thinking of buying one. Anyone heard one? Any good?
  21. I used to have a Pioneer DV-989. Excellent piece of kit: played everything except Blu-Ray and built like a tank. The built-in DAC wasn't brilliant with SACD, but as a CD transport it was as good as anything else.
  22. Brilliant speakers. If only my living room were 8 feet wider!
