Re: Tannoy R-GRF

With a limited size, anything other than a vented box is going to give you less bass. This seems to be one of the cruel laws of speaker design.
How about selling the 15's and buying a pair of 12"-ers ?
I will now find something large to duck down behind ... :)

Re: General health matters.

It's the curse of 'Wellbeing Wednesday', Ray - which has replaced some genuine healthcare benefits at work that we used to have.
How's the sugar reduction going Phil ? I gave it up for Lent, when I was about 20, never went back.

Re: General health matters.

Yeh, but only if you feel like smiling. Otherwise it's just like one of those cheap weekly self-help emails that we get at work giving you lists of easy things you can do to improve your mental health :roll:

Re: Miniscule moments of extreme musical brilliance!

Patti Smith starts singing 'shadda-do-wop , shadda-do-weh' near the end of 'Birdland' from Horses. I don't know why it's so moving, but it's some sort of instinctive poetic inspiration. Perhaps the way it develops ( the vocal harmonies ) marks a spreading balm-like warmth at the end of a tortured st...

This is perfectly described- 'floofing' is just the right word.

Re: Nothing In Particular

It certainly has this weekend. Here's a small shot from this afternoon. This is taken from the Denbigh-Llandyrnog road, which was almost underwater. This is normally all green fields. It's the most water I've seen along here, in the 33 years I've lived here. There were waves lapping up against the g...

Re: Mayware formula 4

Ah yes, OK. Well the amount of the wand sticking out of the 'crook' or angle inside the headshell is less than 1mm in my case. I think the one you had might have been set up wrong - I don't see there's any benefit in having the headshell further back along the wand - makes the arm length shorter and...

Re: Mayware formula 4

I will do it, but I'm just a bit confused about the terminology - ... the length of the arm from the front of the bearing housing to the front point of the headshell, and the distance between the front of the bit of the headshell where the arm tube pokes through it and the front of the tube please '...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Cool ! Bad rain here. Went to St. Asaph earlier to catch up with a friend at the pub, the back road from Denbigh was flooding, even worse on the Trefnant-St.Asaph B-road where it was down to 1 lane in places and they were doing emergency pumping onto the fields. I used the A-road to come back. Just ...
