  1. Weatherproof is PE sheathed, you ll need to filter RS to PE sheathed to find weatherproof cable. I think the lengths are all too much for your job. 5E all the way especially of you want to terminate at all into boots. Cat 6 was virtually impossible to terminate into boots for me. The Kenable stuff doesn't say if it's solid core or stranded. Stranded is better for bends and terminating into boots in my experience as it's more supple. If you try to also use solid core for patch cables you may struggle. Otherwise looks like it'll do the job - for £10 take a punt. RS do some Van Damme if you need audiophile grade.

  2. Whatever you pick check the bend radius for any 90deg turns. 5E will be plenty good enough and in my experience much more ductile than cat 6. I used cat 6 for the whole house, it was difficult. Just make sure you get weatherproof / UV stabilised cable. RS have a big selection https://uk.rs-online.com/mobile/c/cables-wires/network-communication-cable/cat5e-cable/
  3. But can you tell the difference? http://abx.digitalfeed.net/spotify-hq.html I thought I could, turns out on these samples I cannot. I'd be interested to see how others fair?!
  4. hmmm I hear that there are quite a few BIA russian knock offs, small market but high margin. I've never looked at or used paypal guarantee - always assumed it'd be pretty shoddy given my experiences of ebay. Tbh may have to take the plunge the last sale was in 2018 on discogs.
  5. Very long shot for the 2013/14 BIA SHM CD versions, either: SHM-CD UICY-76099 Platinum SHM-CD UICY-40055 Discogs only has versions from Russian sellers which I don't entirely trust not to be counterfeit.

  12. Soundstage was me. Its aim was to capture good recordings - high DR (to extent available by spotify) and good separation / imaging ("Soundstage").
  13. Does it still work here? if so how do I enable it?
  14. Better be quick. Just discontinued by Google.

    I removed one speaker terminal to reuse the hole for the aerial. The other positive terminal I have also now removed (not pictured) and have a push on / off button for software shutdown - the main front button switches the mains.
