  1. Steven Wilson at the Manchester Apollo tonight, going with my 21 year old daughter.
  2. I use 1c's in a small room and had problems of bass boom when they were near the corners. They don't seem to mind being close to the wall just away from the corners.
  3. +1 for dropping Sky. I have had Youview for about 4 months and it's ok apart from being slower to warm up than Sky. Netfix has a better choice of movies than Sky as well. The cost of Sky with all the packages is absurd.
  4. Do the codes work to get Premium at a reduced rate? This seems good value: http://spotifypremiumcode.co.uk/?page_id=5
  5. Richer Sounds are great for repairs. I took in a Yamaha AV amp last month after weeks trying to get local firms to sort it. It went in on the Friday, they had to transport it to their repair base in Bristol and had it back ready for me to collect on Tuesday. The cost :£40.
  6. Glad to be of help Andrew. Of course you can just save to favourites on your Touch by opening the URL and going right on the Touch remote, scrolling down until you find 'Save to Favorites' (excuse the american spelling)
  7. Switching between a t-amp and a Croft power amp in my system does little to change the soundstage, although other aspects of the presentation are affected. I have always assumed, rightly or wrongly that it's the design of the speaker that is significant and those that can project sound sideways will be better. My speakers are basically 4 poles covered in cloth so are great in this respect (imho).
  8. Avast is blocking AOS as well so it must be serious. Marco must be tearing his hair out.
  9. I haven't seen a Linn DS but I assume there must be a search method. If you cannot copy and paste I suppose you would have to type the address.
  10. Try this: http://72.26.207.67:8014/ Sorry-I should have said that you need to add it to your favourites if you have a Touch, dont click on it directly.
  11. RP at 320k sound better on my system plus I get a small frisson of delight knowing it's intended for naimees only. Ogg 192k is hopeless and constantly re-buffers.
  12. The mp3ish comments-I would have thought all music put out by radio stations would be transferred to MP3 before broadcast? But MP3 at 320kps is generally accepted to be close to CD quality is it not? Personally, I consider RP at 320kps close to my own db poweramp flac files and I am not going to get sniffy about any high quality free music. http://www.codinghorror.com/blog/2012/06/concluding-the-great-mp3-bitrate-experiment.html
  13. Thanks Ronnie, How do you get radio on Foobar?
