Paddy Moloney

Another one of the greats gone. If you haven't listened to any of the Chieftains albums, particularly from the 70's then please do. Beautiful timeless stuff and finely recorded by Claddagh then Island. https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/uknews/chieftains-founder-paddy-moloney-lived-for-music-mourners-to...

Re: The Audio-Talk Cycling thread.

That's real quick progress Nick. Impressed by you refusing opiods too. Talking of quick progress... I hadn't looked at the RRA records for years http://www.rra.org.uk/ I was checking out if Gethin Butler had set the 1000 mile record after his end to end in 2001. Answer was, yes he did. Then scanning...

Re: Sars-Cov-2 stuff

Predictably, I would also suggest getting the vitamin D level checked. This doesn't even require a GP visit, you can order a home test kit these days.

Re: The Audio-Talk Cycling thread.

After searching EBay without luck recently, I decided I would have to fork out for a new Brooks Team Pro saddle with the titanium frame. I went looking and could only find dealers with 'Out of Stock' posted against most of the Brooks saddles. Further searching showed that Brooks was bought out by Se...

I still remember John Peel explaining how he'd drive around Essex when travelling from Suffolk to London, rather than go through it.

Re: Purifi-based monitor - options

Unfortunately he explains nothing about his choice of volume and port size/length. I did a basic Hornresp set-up for it with unlined port, then changed the port diameter ( on the basis he'd put felt in there ) until I got the closest match to the measured impedance curve ( with lined port ).

Re: Purifi-based monitor - options

It's a slightly bigger volume and a shorter port - but I like the effect of the wadding around the port interior. I will do a simulation first.
