  1. Yes, long since sorted on the DAC front, thanks.
  2. Thanks but I'll have to pass.
  3. I'd quite like to get my hands on a cheap MiniDisc deck. I've been scouring Gumtree/Evilbay but I have no discs with which to test a machine in the event of a purchase. Does anyone have a disc or two they could spare that I could use for that purpose?
  4. Thought this may be of interest to Topping fans:

    Talked to a girl in a HiFi store. She was really cute but seemed a bit young. She said "Don't worry I've been active for a good while". To which I said "Really? Since when?" She said "Since I got my LS50s about 2 years ago".

    I met her in a bar when I was chatting to some fellow audiophile friends. She seemed keen to come back to my place with minimal effort from me, which was great. Although my hopes were dashed when we got in and she said "I can't wait to sample this dac you've been going on about".

    It was big, thick and so powerful it made her howl with delight. Alas she was greedy: "Are you going to get a second subwoofer?" she asked.

    I thought it was the beginning of a meaningful relationship but quickly realised she only came around for a Bang (& Olufsen).

    She'd just moved in and I went around to help her. We were meant to prioritise the kitchen but one thing led to another. I pushed it in as much as I could to which she just kept saying "Deeper, deeper". I told her we needed to leave space around the back for the cables.

    She invited me around and asked if I fancied a bit? I told her I was more of a PCM guy so politely declined.

    She was the adventurous type and immediately said she wanted to try something different. So there I was fumbling around and I just couldn't get it in. Boy do I hate TOSLINK connectors.

    She was ok but a real size queen. After the first time she came around, she complained that 6.5" wasn't enough for her. She said she couldn't be happy with a guy with anything less than 10"... ...drivers.

    She was quite a shy girl and wanted to take no chances. She asked me to use a good, tight fit without risk of anything slipping off.... .... so I swapped out the RCA for a BNC connection.

    Boy she was really hot but liked to overdo it. The first time she came around she blew my.... ....tweeters.
  15. Thought I'd start some audio-related innuendo-type gags. Here's a few to get you going (oooerr)....
  16. Following on from this thread about 'back in the day gear' I thought I'd share this video. It's over an hour long so I wouldn't expect many of you to watch it (or perhaps not all) but in short, he guy argues that prices will stop rising purely because there is a finite (and declining) market for it. What are your thoughts...?
  17. Unlikely anyone will respond to this but could this be archived?
  18. I love vintage gear albeit the only piece of kit in my system that you could call vintage is my turntable. Trouble is, the price of much of this gear seems too high to me. Indeed, some of the listings on evilbay make me laugh out loud given how deluded the sellers seem to be. Thanks to the lockdown I've recently developed a desire to get some analogue tape back in my life and would dearly love a good cassette deck and (eventually) an open reel deck but no way am I buying at the prices I've seen...
  19. So glad this has popped up since it's a topic so rarely discussed on forums.
  20. Glad you remembered to capitalise the name SONOS each and every one of the nine times you used the name in your post
  21. Oh absolutely! I'm not arguing against signing up as it's great for punters. I just wonder for how long Tidal is going to keep going. It'll be 12 months for £12 next
  22. All these offers for Tidal smack of desperation on their part. I do wonder how sustainable Tidal is and for how much longer it will be in business...
  23. I particularly enjoyed this paragraph
  24. I joined Club Chord in the summer when I bought myself a Qutest. Seems like a quality piece of kit
