  1. They were my go-to at gigs. Mine are still good too, though there is some print-through noticeable in the quiet spots.
  2. Congratulations, if they’re yours you’ve scored well. I will have to wait until another pair comes around. re Pack & Send... I’ve had various experiences. My local branch is super careful with packing, but I’ve had speakers incoming that were poorly protected, even after I’ve phoned the originating P&S office with explicit instructions. Best option I’ve found is still to use P&S but pack them up personally before letting the courier take them off your hands. Ymmv dave.
  3. On a printed sticker on the base. It has model No, voltage, serial No, date of manufacture (to the day), and country of origin.
  4. There are refillable, reusable pods out there you can pack with your favourite fresh ground beans As to the Gaggia’s reliability and quality, I concur: I have #000627 It’s 20yrs old , all original and still running strong every single day.
  5. “Endgame” is a mythical self-delusion 😆 It’s the excitement of the journey that counts. That Breitling is a lovely piece that I’m sure you’ll fawn over and will give you tingles of pride for a long time to come. I’m excited for you 🙂 I remember that feeling of my first good watch purchase too.
  6. Hi Carl, that Rickie Lee Jones album is superbly produced and mastered, and excellent fodder for the Eos (or testing any speaker’s handling of those complex upper registers), but I’m sorry to say the reference to the triangle was actually from elsewhere. It’s a fast-rate rolling triangle throughout a song called Magalehna, on Doug DeVries’ Brazilian album “Borboleta”. But I do also know the triangle on Flying Cowboys. Such a sublime instrument! It’s simplicity belies the complex texture that people wouldn’t usually stop to appreciate. You’re right, it is a good indicator of whether a speaker/system can resolve all that detail and timing (especially when a triangle is probably overlooked as a useful instrument). Dave.
  7. My favourite amp. It’s sublime and gorgeous and definitely belies its 18watts. GLWTS Dave
  8. Dammit. That blue one is gorgeous! Someone is very lucky.
  9. Love over gold please. one second too slow. Backup for dire straits pls.
  10. *Tuner $250, comes with free bonus amplifier*
  11. Yes please, this should play nicely with my Aries Mini. PM on its way. Dave
