You have sobered me in a single post. Think I'll go to bed.
Good move.

My system is once again silent.

Stupid.

Fucking.

Hobby.

Beer has the distinct advantage that it might go off a bit, but there has never, ever been a case where I have opened a bottle and found it to be empty. The hi-fi system, on the other hand, on occasion decides that silence is the order of the day. Whilst I can fix this with the application of yet another pile of diodes and the soldering station, this is not my idea of bliss.

Sometimes, this stuff sucks the big one.

A little bit of Led Zep would have sorted my mood out perfectly. Unfortunately, some silence seems to be the only option. Fuses changed, cables swapped. Dead 845 is the result. At 10:00 pm on a Friday night, I shall resort to the AV system. Onkyo plus B&W does not good music make. However, it does music make. Consistently. So some Jeff Back will be done. It will be done loud. Balls to hi-fi.

I have my own room but might have to move out as I have possibly split up with my sausage roll making girlfriend and will spend the rest of my life alone with my records for company etc :?

I will NEXT Friday night. When I will be off this diet and therefore able to HAVE a few beers. I've only had one since ADPully's bake-off which now feels like it was somewhere back in the mid Cretaceous :x . And I've spent most of the day out in the workshop fiddling with a PA amp from about 1950. When it was playing music it did indeed sound pretty good. But when it wasn't you could hear an irritating hum from it and I still haven't nailed the source, although I have backed it into a pretty tight corner ...

You'll need to encourage RCSG to learn how to bake. Intimate waxing can only get you so far in life. :geek:

Back out of bed.

Guess I just wanted to say isn't great when you're really enjoying listening to your rig?

(But Friday and beer do help.)
