  1. Puer, puer, puer Boy,o boy, o boy and the schoolboy poem Latin is a language as dead as dead can be It killed the ancient Romans And now it’s killing me !
  2. Valve amps to me in maintenance /repair terms are the same as classic cars - with some knowledge or use if a specialist you can keep them going for years How many multi chip solid state devices will be serviceable in 10 years let alone 20 years in amps/streamers etc And I can’t see how anyone is going to maintain a 2010 onwards ‘classic car’ with multiple chips that start to fail
  3. Ale was the original circuit designer of my two box type 26 preamp, built by Rui Lorenzo in Portugal then refined/tweaked by Simon S
  4. Just been released the supposed top 500 songs according to Rolling Stone magazine https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-lists/best-songs-of-all-time-1224767/kanye-west-stronger-1224837/
  5. Well you can grille a courgette
  6. Tavener vs Charlotte Church …both bordering on unlistenable at times
  7. Expert ……Ex is a ‘has been’ and Spurt is a drip under pressure - I hate being referred to as an expert
  8. I’m from the sub set of ‘I don’t care what it looks like ….how does it sound’ and with 15 boxes plus 4 speakers generating my ‘sound’ it’s difficult to subscribe to anything else to be honest.
  9. Mine only buzzes when (I’m assuming) there are issues on my ring main/supply - it used to go nuts when Jane used her old colour laser printer ….a new HP one doesn’t appear to pollute the mains as the Airlink remains silent.
  10. I travel 25k miles a year to carry out my job and probably 75% of this is on motorways cruising in 6th gear averaging 43mpg …. excellent fir a 4wd diesel SUV Although this is almost 4 x the alleged U.K. average I bet I emit less CO2 that an average car queuing in a city etc. So plain stats can be misleading.
  11. I think to point is being missed that if every household in the U.K. reduced their energy consumption by 100 watts each day that would equate to approx 26M x 100 ie 2600 Megawatts -that’s around 100 onshore wind turbines to coin an ad phrase EVERY LITTLE HELPS !
  12. Does dirty power make ‘grime’ sound any better or enhance it etc .
  13. The 15” Volt bass drivers are 400 watts rated. Have a look at using one of the Behringer amps I use for bass https://www.thomann.de/gb/behringer_km750.htm There is some low level fan noise but once music is playing you don’t notice. These amps are designed/built for fast current delivery on bass guitar systems and at £140 are a bargain for bass applications on multi channel active systems …..I use two - running in bridged mono (simple switch on the rear of the amp joins the two amp channels in series) to deliver 750 watts to the 18” beasts.
  14. If you are crossing over the bass at less than 200 Hz Bokke the width of the bass cab isn’t an issue unless you go very wide. My bass cab is 600 wide to aid getting the internal volume I needed for a very low frequency response.
