  1. I recently tried both types of the White’s pads under all my equipment, initially I was sure there was a noticeable improvement, and there was in the mids and highs. But after extended listening I realised the improvement was due the reduction in quality bass, both impact and definition, and a general thinner sound. Removed the pads and everything was back in sync and sounding right again, just another perspective on these pads.
  2. Let us know what you think of it, I’ve only had one listen and really enjoyed it, I think it might be a creeper and get more enjoyable with more listens.
  3. Definitely less pop and more prog, I’ve read it’s more like The Dark Third, this is my first listen to PRR, I’ll need to give TDT as spin, or should I write stream.
  4. I've found these good and easy to install. https://www.soundlabsgroup.com.au/p/V-5170-Spike/Speaker+Spikes
  5. My favourite Skid Row album, Slave to the Grind, I must try and get this on vinyl.
  6. I have a Liberty Audio b2b-1 doing nothing at the moment, been meaning to put it up for sale, it will be within your price range. Here is a recent review, others online also. https://www.analogplanet.com/content/liberty-audio’s-1995-b2b-1-phono-preamp-sneakily-stunning
  7. It is very difficult to compare streaming with local storage on HDD due to not knowing what exact version is on Tidal etc. I have found that new music with one version on Tidal is inferior to a local rip to my NAS, and is generally clearly better. I don’t own a CDP so can’t comment there.
  8. Tesla - Five Man London Jam, live at Abbey Road Studios, SQ is excellent as would be expected in a recording studio.
  9. Dream Theater - Distance Over Time, home alone so it’s getting the appropriate volume, sounding great.
  10. The new normal for many months I’d guess, my new home office setup behind my listening chair, can’t complain too much.
  11. I'm using Cable Matters CAT8 on the B side, found it better than CAT5e.
  12. Some German metal from the 80s, Sinner - Touch of Sin, good stuff.
  13. Def Leppard - Hysteria, just got this from JB HiFi, the 2 for $50 sale, looks like it is the 30th anniversary remastered version, 500 Ltd edition, bonus 👍, and it sounds great.
