Re: Remember These?

Heard it today, it does the otl thing at the top end with lovely silky treble, but doesnt let go at all at the bottom
With the fanes on the end of it.
It just doesnt seem to run out of poke. In some ways it reminds me of the f5. But better.

It requires a very nice box or boxes to put it in

Re: Squeezebox wanted

Thanks for the offer dave but i ruled the touch out because i cant see the screen on it properly from where i sit
It would be about 5m away and the text is just too small.

With the classic i could set the text to large so it scrolls across the screen and i can see it

Re: Squeezebox wanted

Ta for the suggestions guys However the problem is this. Im not really interested in the digital side of things so im not fussed about how this bit of the system sounds, its just so emma can access and play the stuff on the mac. Using the tv as a monitor for the apple tv just means that it doesnt ge...

Re: Latest vinyl 'finds'.

2 this week, a copy of otis redding sitting on the dock of the bay on the blue stax label. Cost me nowt, russ the record guy gave me it as it looks awful. Gave it a good clean and it came up OK, no distortion but it's noisy. Great album though
Other one was Fleetwood Mac live from 1980. Great record

Squeezebox wanted

Anyone got either an sb3 or the other one that has the reciever and the remote looking thing?

The apple tv is just not practical having to be used with the tv and a dac. The squeezebox was ideal

Re: Nothing In Particular

Took my phone into a local shop Friday before last to have a new screen fitted. Theo broke it and I was rather unimpressed. Got it back yesterday and the new screen is far from right. Getting the screen to respond to unlock takes a couple of goes, pressing the side button to re lock it and trying ag...

Re: Fane 15" full range speaker

Made some gains with these lately, extra bracing helped matters making the panels less resonant, also these are more finicky than the 12" ones wrt positioning. The usual advice is to position speakers as far apart a the distance is from your seat to them. I had them closer together than that by abou...
