  1. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/stories-54623417
  2. https://gcmagazine.co.uk/tannoy-owner-says-prestige-manufacturing-will-remain-in-scotland/ I found this earlier... πŸ‘
  3. If your room allows it, how about placing them closer to the wall behind them? I did this fairly recently and it was found to be acceptable at a subsequent Music Evening! πŸ‘ πŸ‘ πŸ‘ 😎 😎 😎
  4. I leave mine out in the open; no shelving above. This allows me to use my Amplifier as a Heater. A fan is used to move air around on the rare occasions I listen on a hot day. πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘
  5. That's the other thing I like; they are rather easy on the eye, aren't they? πŸ‘ πŸ‘ πŸ‘ 😎 😎 😎
  6. Semiconductor: Term used to describe an Audiophile that "Conducts" Classical Music with one hand (with the other holding a glass of port) during a listening session. Choke: The hard wired response when a Valve Amplifier Enthusiast spots some NOS Vintage Valves for sale.
  7. Aww! πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°What a cute (heavy duty) pusscat! Really nice of the pusscat to defend their territory in such a nice way! 😍😍😍
  8. One of the many things that I love about my system is that since Valves are involved, there appears to be much more "Emotion" in the music. Music has been presented so beautifully that I've found myself crying whilst listening to some music. A couple of friends of mine have experienced this too. Last night, I missed out on a listening session after work and I really feel I missed out. Valves have bought music back into my life in a big way! πŸ‘πŸ˜Ž
  9. Hello all! A little story; I learned what a Tiger was in Victoria Coach Station in 1983\4. I noticed a significant number of plain white Coaches had an extremely attractive Emblem proudly displayed on the Radiator Grille. I therefore became interested in Tigers and also Leyland Buses and Coaches. I've driven four Leyland Olympians; two of which I travelled on when I was a Cub... A Leyland Lynx and two Leyland Leopards. And two All Leyland RTW London Buses! I'd like to show you my Leyland Zoo. The Leyland Zoo started in the 'Twenties when the Lion of Olympia was launched. It was the Leyland Eight; a Passenger Car intended to rival Rolls Royce. Later on, the T Range- the first purpose built PCV Chassis- with a Low Frame and therefore more stable was launched. The Titan Double Decker and the Tiger Single Decker. Prior to this, Lorries and Buses were virtually indistinguishable; the same chassis was used for both; indeed some chassis were used as Buses during the day and used as Lorries at night, of course using Demountable Bodies! My Leyland Zoo is all Bus and the oldest one is the Leyland Royal Tiger Sheild. None were made later than 1954! The newest one is my Keyring given to me by a kindly chap in Leyland who used to build Gearboxes. My first one is in the middle of the main picture. πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘
  10. Hello all! Great idea for a thread and some great write-ups too! I love my Valve Amplifier! "Audrey" is an Audio Innovations Series 500 with Hinchley Transformers. I believe this fine Amp' fits in really well and appears to be a good match with my Tannoys! Various friends- including a couple of Musicians and a Sound Engineer have given me some very positive feedback! I enjoy the sound, the warm glow of the Valves by candlelight and the company of friends who often don't leave until the early hours when I hold Music Evenings! πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘
  11. It is a real mess. πŸ§πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ
  12. I went on my longest Bike Ride since 1996 today. After 3 hours of Frisbee Practice. Which was nice. I feel I've earned my shandy! πŸ‘ πŸ‘ πŸ‘ 😎 😎 😎
