    Welcome from me as well, John’s advice is sound. In better times this place is a very social place so if any near you do ask for a place.

    I'd advise running spikes, there are some wammers who are deceptively fast look forward to meeting you one day, and of course there is our show - usually March but not 2020 <sob> - which from where you live is a no brainer if you've never been?

    welcome Lloyd interesting set up, I'm sure once things return to semi-normal bake offs will happen again - just watch the thread. Most hosts give priority to newbies, mention cake (wammers like cake) and you'll be a shoe in kinds regards, Paul
  8. I tried an interesting experiment (lockdown bored? ) don't know if you guys have heard of something called QSound - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QSound a certain Roger Waters was/is a fan Now my understanding is that it needs speaker placement precisely on the golden triangle to work, oh and speakers in phase So I set this up and played Too Much Rope from Roger Water's Amused To Death (Qobuz 24/96) and yes the sleigh starts off (1min in) behind the speakers at 10 o'clock & leaving behind you at 4 o'clock. Clever effect. Moved the speakers back to firing straight down the room and pushed listening chair back. Guess what? The effect is the same, Boenicke sound stage FTW! Give it a try.
  9. many thanks Julian for mine, kindly collected by Andrew @bencat & dropped off on his way home - top wamming both!!
