Re: Room Treatment (Split from Owston thread)

One roof panel up so far, difficult job to do on ones own.

Coving not recommended according to my expert on the matter Mr GIK.

New amplifiers picked up tonight will be plumbed in soon.

Re: Room Treatment (Split from Owston thread)

To the uninitiated looking in on this thread, it would be difficult to gather the purpose of the discussion. The discussion is about the listening room used for the Yorkshire HiFi Club Meetings. It is a large well presented room in a Basement with a through wall to a Adjoining Room that leads to a ...

Re: Owston 2019 - Listening Impressions

Well I enjoyed myself so much I am thinking I cannot wait another whole year so we could probably have my next Yorkshire HiFi club as a similar theme to Owston, any takers?

If you are saying that a remarkable transformation occurred after I left on Saturday (think it was about 5pm) and suddenly all systems came to life then fair play.

Re: When is a pie not a pie?

I thought we fixed that. Well we did in my head at the time but that might not have been too rational! A pie has to have pastry all the way round. Small casserole dishes with pastry caps don’t count. Nigel’s pie on Saturday night was a chicken and ham soup with a pastry cap. That’s really wrong. Sa...

Re: When is a pie not a pie?

Some questions have an obvious answer, Greg is 100% correct. :D No he's not! Greg describes using suet - suet is used in puddings so what he describes is a steak and kidney pudding not a pie. Ray put your glasses on mate and read his post. A pie has to have pastry all the way round. Small casserole...

Re: Attendees Owston 1/2 June 19

It was obvious a few of the systems needed more attention, simple as that.

I enjoyed myself as usual but this years collection wasn't as good as previous years IMO.
