Re: What Are You Listening To Right This Minute?

Like many others, I’ve never been quite sure if Kate Bush is a genius or just batshit crazy.

This seems to provide ample evidence for both points of view.

managed it once and thought someone had nicked the handle bars. Had a similar experience myself once. Came out of a friend’s house in total darkness, as dark as only a Devon night can be. Crossed road with arms outstretched until I located car. Felt my way around car to door. Entered car. Found no ...

Re: DIY Linear Tonearm

Yes, once I’ve finished a project to restore an old pair of Stax headphones.
