  1. Hi I use mostly aa rechargeables, for flash unit, current Hahmel failing. Any ideas for a replacement, seen smart/intelligent ones on eBay and Amazon, are they good? All suggestions welcome, I 'm going through chemo atm so I 'll look at replies and reply when I can Cheers trumpetman
  2. Hi Mark, thanks for your reassurance and kind words. I hope you are keeping well under the circumstances. Yes it's a journey that has to be done, we'd rather not but there's no choice with cancer and chemo. Due to the lovely people of the wam I'm all sorted with music and ear buds, my head is in a really good place and I'm ready for this. I hope your treatment is successful for you and no complications in the future. If any wammer reading this is also having chemo then I wish you all the best. Certainly talking about it here has helped no end, and also the Macmillan organisations and their nurses are absolute angels. kind regards, Nigel
  3. Many, many thanks to all members that pointed me in the right direction. I am so grateful to you all. Big thanks to Bencat, the ear buds arrived today, working superbly, very generous indeed. Everything appears to be working fine, just learning how to find and do stuff. So it's music sorted, listening to music sorted........chemo bring it on!!!!!! Thanks a lot - Nigel
  4. Thanks to everyone who has posted. It's funny that for home HiFi you think of boxes and cables, storage etc.... the crazy stuff our hobby can lead to. The strangest thing I had completely ignored was that my phone provides exactly what I'm looking for, I just needed you guys to point that out, ☺ I've got iTunes more or less sorted, more tweaks tomorrow. I'll keep you posted Cheers Nigel
  5. Hi thanks for your reply. iPhone se. Just going to start some internet searches. Cheers
  6. Thanks for your'll have to point me to some instructions,I have one, but use it only for texts and calls ....for the moment that is
  7. Hope this is the most appropriate forum. I have been diagnosed with cancer, had my tumour removed and now comes the chemotherapy. I am OK about it all, but shitting myself if I over think it! I have my CD collection ripped to Flac and no end of Mp3s lurking on drives. I would like to listen to as much music as I can during the treatment, can you point me to a small portable earphone/headphone system I can use while on a ward for two days at a time. In my head I have in mind copying some of my stuff over to a device and bingo job done, but you guys will educate me I'm sure. Cheers
  8. Thanks for all the replies and messages about some cables - late notice but I'm on the surgery list for tomorrow now so if you don't mind I'll have to pick this up on Thurs as I'll be out of it tomorrow Cheers
  9. Thanks for your reply - needs to be 2 x .3.5 cable runs. I know it might not be possible bur thanks for your kind offer Cheers
  10. What a time to for me to need oncology treatment! – but the NHS are always fantastic and I have no worries. My leg biopsy is this week, then…? To make our HiFi more accessible to me when I’m recovering on crutches my lovely lady and myself have had an idea to move the HIFI around in the lounge – great idea but current (no pun intended!) speaker cables will not be suitable for new position. Has any fellow wammer got a 3.5 metre pair of copper speaker cables hidden away somewhere, at least as good as the DNMs I use? (please no cable arguments!). No silver cored /plated wires please, solid cored Audioquest would be nice. Budget £175ish or less. I could look after a pair for someone by agreement - call it a cable sitting service! Should anyone feel OK to respond any pictures would be good. Post or courier service for delivery - obviously Moving the HiFi is not crucial but a little more convenient; I know music will play a major part in my recovery, anyway, I thought I’d ask here first - if not then I'll make do! Thanks trumpetman
  11. Thanks for the replies and offers via pm - so much to take on board, think through and evaluate. Got some Googling to do now and make a decision Cheers
  12. Hi thanks for your reply. Not familiar with sony - did a quick google - is it a ST-777es that looks like this? How much are you looking for? Logistics, condition etc switch to pm if best? Cheers
  13. WANTED - DAB+, DAB Tuner Looking for a separate tuner able to provide DAB+, DAB and FM Must be in good condition , have all the bits it came with and able to be posted well boxed.I would collect within reason etc The sort of thing I've been looking at is a used Denon TU-1800DAB on a certain site and have been pi$$ed about - so I thought maybe a wammer has something the same or similar to move on. It does not have to be full width, colour is not important but condition is. So... whodderyagot? Cheer,s trumpetman
  14. Thanks for all suggestions, I 've looked hard into .m3u file construction and by looking at source code by using right button mouse click (all suggested by Google searches) I've been able to eventually come up with a .m3u file that works as a playlist on the melco . Listening to Jazz fm atm. It's too clunky to get to listen to it though. More work to do, and any nice solutions welcome
