  1. I am sick to death of Jamie Carragher speaking about Liverpool and Rio speaking about United. It is utterly pointless and they offer nothing other than almost total myopia.
  2. Such a shame for a young player breaking through to have this. I wish him the strength to fight his way back.
  3. Fortunately, I haven't heard that, though I did hear a lot of United fans talking about tainted legacies, despite him not being a United player for nearly 2 decades. I personally would much rather continue with Ferran Torres and bring through Liam Delap than buy someone like Ronaldo, fabulous player though he undoubtedly had been. Still, the tribalism of football will always stop us seeing the truth, at times. Personally, I relish United failing - a legacy of a club authorised banner at Old Trafford counting the number of years since a City league win; rarely have I seen something so petty and disrespectful being authorised by a club. Needless to say, I hope this season is also a failure for you but not as much as I hope it is a success for my team.
  4. You must be. I know I would want to know all about a player who left my team to better his career and then returned at the end of it for half a million a week. I would relish those 13 separate Mail headlines trying to convince me that it is something other than that.
  5. 13 stories in today's Mail about his return. Ryan on G Wing, the movie, is the current speculation to cover the costs, sponsored by Stennaline. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  6. That valves give a warmer sound - utter tripe. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  7. Once again, it is only hifi, and what one hears in the context of their own ears, room and system cannot be said to be false by anybody else.
  8. For those just joining, my rescue dogs, Bess and Blue.

    She's still alive, thankfully!

    I just heard that she's done a Tiny Desk so I will be checking that out. I think she is a star - consistently superb albums sung well, played well, with groove, great lyrics and recording quality.
  11. Just a reminder - it is only hifi, and we all have our own ears, rooms and systems. Telling someone what they can or cannot have heard is really not possible.
  12. Dark - compelling, unique German sci-fi ish. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  13. With a magnetic personality - you've had it!
  14. I've got one in for service or I'd have sorted you out. All the good engineers are exceptionally busy at the moment Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  15. Thank you for the kind words. Nice speakers, the Equinox. My NS1000 have plenty of bass in this room but my neighbours are deaf...Hurrah!
  16. Speakers from the 80s, Deck from the 80s, Dac from 1990, amp from the 70s. Even the cartridge is from the 80s!
  17. I totally agree, like making a fine coffee and not instant. I would never dismiss vinyl out of hand but at one's fingertips are millions of albums now, able to be reproduced in quality inaccessible to most in days gone by. As a start, vinyl is a big commitment that's no longer needed. If you want it for other reasons, or you have a big record collection, then go for it. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  18. I have spent a lot of money on vinyl over the years and I am really happy with the way my deck sounds. I do not kid myself though: it is not intrinsically better than digital replay and is, factually, a lot more expensive. Without a large vinyl collection I would not be starting a turntable journey now unless I had a collector's desire; as a music lover, there is simply no need.

    She is a huge talent. One of my very favourite artists is Meshell Ndegeocello - check her out if you haven't already.

    Already a lot of new music for me to try: I have not listened to OMD and my classical knowledge is less than sketchy. Please keep them coming.
