    So, so, so @#$% good!!!! They are back in fine form. Great version of 'Who shot Ya!' (Notorious B.I.G cover) I saw them do this song live a few months back and they knocked it out of the park. Brilliant concert at 170 Russell Street. Regards Cazzesman

    After about 8 listens; background, headphones, intimate darkness, soft, loud and with the wife just chillin.......................I'm thinking it is one of the best things he has ever done and that is a bloody high bar to beat. Can't fault a song. Listening to his 2 part interview on youtube, discussing each track, really brings the album into focus. Musically he just kills it. Pariah (his Bush/Gabriel 'Don't give Up' ode), Refuge and Detonation are pure SW. Even 'Permanating' is a truly joyous 3.34 mins of perfect pop music. Brilliant. Just Brilliant!!!! Regards Cazzesman

    Three listens. More needed but Steven never ceases to capture my attention. 5 songs are immediately SW gems. 4 are a work in progress for me and 2 are not quite SW but I'm thinking 9 out of 11 is a fair score thus far. Regards Cazzesman

    Moody and melancholy. I like how it drones around in circles as her voice weaves and wanders. My wife hates it. Regards Cazzesman

  8. Mutec MC-3+ Smart Clock USB

    I'm really enjoying the clarity the mutec is giving to dialog from various video sources into the plasma. Be that Kodi, tv, cd/DVD or streaming from the oppo. Perhaps it is the reclocked 48 Hz output I have set. Plenty of the tv shows I watch these days are filled with verbal sparring. House of Cards, GOT etc. Often dialog seems muffled due external sounds used to enhance the experience. 5.1 stuff down to stereo seems to bury some whispered conversations. The mutec has made the dialog front and centre. No need for hearing aides just yet. Regards Cazzesman

    Anyone tried the new Schiit Eitr - USB to Spdif converter ? Thoughts? Comparisons? Regards Cazzesman
  10. Mutec MC-3+ Smart Clock USB

    Thanks to wikeeboy I have been trialling his Mutec MC 3+ USB. I now have my head around the setup. It has a wide variety of internal selections and I have finally worked out what sequence of button pushing I need to implement, to get some great quality sound. 1st off the Mutec certainly cleans up the sound from the PC Lagoon via USB into the Oppo's USB. It bring's everything into greater focus - that's the simplest way I can describe it. Because the unit has a variety of inputs I can toggle directly between the Units Coaxial and Optical outputs into the Oppo. After an hour or so of listening yesterday I think the Optical has it. The Optical Cable is the Lifatec Sitflex Glass version. The Optical just bested the Coaxial (Gary Cawsey 75ohm Silver core cable with Screw tight RCA connectors) in the area of clarity and refinement. It was smoother and yet still dynamic. Vocals are liquid. I now have the Plasma TV running into the Mutec with a 2nd Lifatec Glass Siltec Optical. Getting sound (TV or Music) via the Mutec to the Oppo is just a matter of selecting the USB or SPdif output, both into the Lifatec output. Still more listening to go this coming week but I am liking what I am hearing. http://www.lifatec.com/toslink2.html Regards Cazzesman

    Wikeeboy has been a true gent and lent me his Mutec so all good. Music pumping as I type. Cheer to Wikeeboy for his generosity. Regards Cazzesman
