    McGuire to the dogs? They would have to be desperate to get JT or Hoppa
  2. Yep. They can scarcely believe they are making tens of billions because people are apparently unable to turn on a light via a switch
  3. hello from the Gong

    Hi Rustee. Welcome mate. You are definitely off to a good start with your system and also doing what you can with room placement to optimise the sonic result is also a great idea. Your speakers are really very good and if you do plan on some system changes in the future, the Silver 8s will definitely appreciate an amplifier upgrade. They are very highly capable speakers and you may be surprised just how good they can sound on premium amplifiers. For the present though, just enjoy your music, get to know your gear and how it works with the room and try some good quality ( but sensibly priced ) speaker cables. The MA speakers always respond well to good cables. Don't be in any rush though and feel free to ask any questions you may have. As you correctly noticed there is a wealth of knowledge and experience here and we are all here to help if you need it, but also don't be afraid to trust your instinct and also get your wife involved in the music. If you know what she likes, buy some of her favourite music, it really can work wonders with your situation Cheers.
  4. I don't get it

    Agree 100% This is what I have done and it works well for me.

    Makes sense I guess
  6. I don't get it

    I don't get this thread at all. Collapsing sound stages and electronic gear in the bathroom. You guys have fun though

    I'm not sure this should even be an issue anymore with a known and respected brand who do their own quality control. In many cases Chinese manufacture can actually mean better build quality.
  9. I bought a new toothbrush last week. I am almost certain it is analogue
  10. FS: VAF DC-X42 speakers

    If I may ask. Do these come with the VAF stands? Thanks

  12. I have this exact same model and the OP is correct. The sound is more appealing than the 590 and this is the essence of the Luxman sound. It also doesn't baulk at inefficient speakers and has a very solid bass foundation, with great grip and control ( unlike some tube amps ). The phono stage ( MC and MM ) is also superb. Mine is never leaving my posession and FWIW this sounds just magical and will last a lifetime.
  13. Perhaps I could have chosen a better video clip ( that one is cheesy ) but my opinion stands on Carrack's verson being better as a song
