  1. Sorry if this is the wrong area for something like this, but has anyone else noticed their post count drop? I was around 1,200 posts and now showing 715. Has this already been discussed? Is it something i've done wrong or is it a site glitch?
  2. I've had both. Had some seriously good kit running the LS50's, and now have the LS50W's. For the money of the W's they are a no brainer, not even worth trying to better it with separates. Sure you could may get better sound out of the passives but it would take big dollars and why bother? For a relatively cheap speaker i also love the lack of extra boxes and simpicity of the active version. Its an all round great package. All IMO of course.
  3. Ah so that's what i've been missing out on. I need to get me some of that church organ music 🙄
  4. Using the internal dac is the only way to go with digital sources. The beauty of the Devialet is its extremely short signal path. Using a DAC upstream into the Devialets analogue in is a poor option IMO. You either like the 'sound' of the Devialet, or you go for something else.
  5. Hi Sean, All of the range will have the ability to drive your speakers (I've had everything from the 120 through to the 1000). Just be mindful that if you use the SAM profile for your speakers, i think that disables your ability to use the sub output. You'll likely find with the control a Devialet has over your woofers, the need for a sub dissipates!
  6. Has anyone here compared the SP10mkII or III to the new Technics Ref tables (SP10R / SL1000R / SL1200G )? If money was no object, how do the new decks compare to the mkii/ii?
  7. Boom! I'm in for the Melbourne leg. Front Circle standing room, go hard or go home (that's me head banging). Shall be interesting to see the performance at Marvel stadium this time. Last time they toured i went to 2 of the shows (Tennis Centre). The extended Master of Puppets rocked
  8. I hope for Mr G's sake these are long gone!
  9. The audiophile swiss army knife! Just recently becoming Roon Ready RAAT certified.
  10. There is a difference between the necessary basics, and what is optimal. Everyone can do whatever suits them, i was very close to going vegan before swerving. Ultimately you do what suits you and your body, and you clearly have something that works well for you which is great. You are very correct, meat is not a necessity.
  11. I'm sorry to have not previously provided any comment when i know so much about this and have much a lot of personal experience. Unfortunately just a lack of time with work/family (poor excuse i know!) Anyway, in short the best quick advice i can give for increased health and longevity is to reduce the feeding window you eat in each day (6-8 hours) this is effectively intermittent fasting. It is also preferable to eat during daylight hours when our bodies circadian rhythm is in synch with processing foods, therefore dont eat after its dark and try and have several hours of no food before sleeping. Regarding type of food to eat, low protein, low carb and high fat (good quality fat) is the way to go. Although vegeterianism was something i was briefing looking at doing, it is not the way to go. We need meat, but the key is this: A diet based predominantly of in season, local organic plant based food Lots of Good Quality fat Low portions of quality protein (wild non farmed fish, organic grass fed and finished meat) The notion of red meat not being good for you is correct generally. That's because the vast majority of people eat industrial meat which is carcinogenic, and something we should keep to a minimum. Grass fed and finished meat, like nature intended is an important and integral part of the diet in small amounts/portions. I mostly intermittent fast every day (its been 3.5 years now), generally a 6-7 hour eating window which is very easy, and quite often i only eat 1 meal a day (dinner). I am also going to soon start combining a monthly 2 day fast where i only consume 300-600 calories per day for 48 hours to do a longer fast. The latest research is showing that having as little as 300 calories over the 2 days is more beneficial than a total water fast (mind you the composition of those calories is very important to help the benefit of the fast).
  12. I have exactly the same as these. I've tried plenty of high end cables and Acrolink (in the upper ranges) are just no bullsh.t quality Japanese made cables that exceed anything else ive compared to. GLWTS
