  1. Great DAC & does not disgrace itself as a pre-amp. I have the upgraded D1+ and could not be happier.
  2. The E-202 was Accuphase's first amp and was first made in 1972. I don't think you can go wrong with any Accuphase kit. Its so beautifully made and all the controls work sooo smoothly. I only wi.sh I could afford some of their more recent offerings
  3. Used to have a E-202 and it was like an iron fist in a silk glove. These amps are a really good buy and you will never loose money on them.
  4. Always fancied one of their valve integrated's which got good reviews but was put off by the soldered in valves.
  5. I had a similar problem with my system and so bought an amplifier with a remote balance control problem sorted. Mike
  6. Now there's a rave from the grave. Many years ago I was going to buy a pair of speakers in a sale and could have had a pair of these but instead chose Monitor Audio 152's (?) - what an idiot.
  7. I gave up trusting magazine reviews during the heyday of the Linn/Naim hegemony. It was amazing how many good products were sacrificed on the elusive altar of PRaT. There must have been plenty of companies producing good kit that went broke because of a bad review during these times. One of my fond memories of this time was going down to Salisbury for a Naim open day at the factory. Before the tour we taken into the demo room to hear the legendary (at least according to the mags) Linn/Naim 6 pack system - I was shocked at how bad it sounded! Nowadays I very rarely buy hifi mags as I
  8. Hi Rob great write up for the wee Neats. They remind me of scaled down Shiannans. Seeing as you liked the ELS so much did you not think of full-range panels? I was thinking of getting a pair of your panels but I moved my listening chair 2 feet back and my speakers have now taken on a new lease of life! Rgeards Mike

  13. I have always been into Jimi ever since he blew my mind in late 1966 with Hey Joe. I bought Are You Experienced the day it was released, in mono mind you, and after that most guitarists were also rans. I missed an opportunity to see him live at the Isle of Wight festival in 1970. I can still remember the infamous day he was taken from us - I was returning home from work and nearly fell down the escalator on the London Underground when I saw the newspaper headlines. His music was a big part of my life at the time. Last month my wife and I went on holiday to the good ol' USA and we went to
