Dont mistake wanting it loud with cannae hear it(going deaf).My 4 and 2 year old girls tell me when its too loud: 65+ on the kairn.I wished I had my syst...

Hi all,I went to woolies(that place is weird) to grab a couple of their blocks, and Charlie is correct they are very good,although I am tempted to change the plugs, or would that be a bad idea?I played a Bill Evans and I got a feeling he was trying to play the keys more softly with the £2 jobs,amazi...

I asked Grahams hi-fi about the Hydra but wouldnt sell me one because I had Linn which wouldnt suit the star earth approach apparently.Got an old RS cables block for a fiver on Ebay which sounds way better than my 500GBP russ andrews distribution block :oops:

Hi guys,
Concerning UK voltage are we saying that switching the voltage to 220 instead of 240 will give a better tune and is that on all items or just amps?

Thanks

Hi Charlie' plugging it straight into amps' I dont think it is as straight forward as that.You can do it with the Genki but through a decent pre amp it always sounds better;Is that correct gents?

The dealer should be offering you your money back Hugo,not offering to compare your DS with his.Why is it some dealers cant listen to an item independently and say whether its working properly or not?They are deaf thats why.If your DS is faulty there is no way it should be anywhere near your system....

If you are at a gig and the performer is singing out of tune and you are just listening to the congested top end,you might not notice the bad singer unless you are listening to the tune (ie tune dem).

Thanks for that Charlie bought a few more.Have you got Beethovens 5th conducted by Carlos Kleiber one of the greatest performances by an orchestra ever! I would be tempted to try an audiophile version of that recording.
