    Anyone familiar with March Audio?

    I already have an amp (or two) which does all of this (except for Bluetooth, which is achieved by an add -on module) and the icing on the cake is tone/balance controls which are also altered by remote control - the brand is Advance Acoustic.
  3. The Tablettes are stunning speakers for their size but need loads of space, good stands and plenty of power to sound their best. Despite their small size the last place you want to mount them is on bookshelves.

  8. The other weekend my wife and I went down to Sydney for the Swans/West Coast game at the SCG - my God it was cold! While we were down there we got tickets for Anne-Sophie Mutter plays Tchaikovsky at the Opera House. This was two first for us , a live classical concert with a symphony orchestra and an inside view of the Opera House. We had seats about 2/3 rds away from the stage right in the middle. When the orchestra started playing my first thought was "its not as loud as I expected" but you could hear all the various sections quite clearly. It was a magical evening and ms Mutter was absolutely sublime. When I returned home and fired up the system I put on one of my few classical recordings expecting to be disappointed but was pleasently surprised as to how near it was to the live sound I experienced. I could not get away from the feeling that the stereo system that came closest to replicating what I had heard live was one of the first hifi's I remember hearing - it was the mid 60's and was in the radio and technology section of the Science Museum in London - Quad pre/power valve amps driving ELS 57's that were hanging from the ceiling on chains. Perhaps Peter Walker was right after all! Mike

    Hi I have a S500 Mk 1 Integrated which is very nice sounding but I believe the internal build quality is flakey from the pictures I have seen. Any chance of some pics? Mike

  13. The Datum arm was very underated in its day. Used to have one fitted to a Logic Tempo Electronic TT. Nothing to do with Jelco I am afraid - they were designed and built in the UK. GLWS Mike
