    Anyone else into BBQ?

    A few questions for the Kamado officianados, joe big or classic? I’m probably leaning toward the big. Are there any downsides to the larger one other than weight? thanks Rob

    Lenard Opals Listening session

    Opal by name and opal by nature. What a revelation these gems were for me. The opportunity to experience Dave's system opened my eyes and ears to horn speakers. Congrats to the crew responsible! Hopefully others get to hear how talented our local speaker builders are.

    Koetsu Onyx - Information Help

    Definately looks fake to me. Ill take it off your hands :-))) What a lovely bit of history you have there Mark. Hope you get to enjoy its sound as well as fond memories.
  7. Personally I'd be looking for a set of Alessandro mspro's. Made by Grado so probably an equivalent available. These are really easy to drive and sound pretty darn good using the Iphone 6 with Onkyo player app. When finances and the inevitable upgrade bug hits, get an amp to suit your taste. Finding the headphone that you like, sound and comfort wise is really important. Taking your own headphones to audition amps is easy and a fun option when the bug bites. Another consideration is on ear vs closed ear options. Some find on ears compression uncomfortable and others find over ears too hot and sweaty. Luckily auditioning different headphones can be a painless experience compared with conventional speakers. I can't stress enough how comfort can influence long term appreciation of your phones. Cheers and good luck

    Gryphon Diablo 300

    Thanks to Dave's (Eagle), penchant for buying and trying exotic gear, I had the opportunity to hear this amp in my system. This was the first time I seriously considered changing my current amplification. It is a fantastic amp in my opinion. Very balanced in its presentation. Bass was well integrated with subtle mids and highs. The icing on the cake, it's one box with configuration options.

    SRAM vs Shimano ...

    Great to see such varied opinions. I think all offerings of the big three are pretty darn good. Like others have said, go for the ones which suit your style of riding. I experienced the Shimano Di2 today for the first time. Innitially I missed the tactile feel of the mechanical ones, but soon appreciated the lighter touch and precise shifting. I have to say I'm a convert now. with the technology maturing, it becomes affordable as well.
  11. Agree with those sentiments Dave. Great bunch of guys with such passion. Living in the West does have benefits sometimes I was lucky enough to be part of Andrews hospitality,thanks one again Andrew. It was quite a revelation to hear the differences in power supplies. Like most of the others impressions, the local yokel ones sounded most pleasant to my ears. Quieter, better bass control and more 3 dimensional is how best I can describe it. Apologies to those hoping for more rigorous testing and reports. Ciao Rob
  12. Hi Rob Happy to give them a home and donation. Cheers Rob
  13. Thanks Tasso Thats the position I'm hoping to get to myself. Hopefully with your guys help
  14. Tasso and Chanh I've enjoyed your journey immensely. I was wondering at this stage of development if it surpasses the sound of the Accuphase "link" with cd based media. Cheers Rob
