  1. Great turntables - I use mine most days! I have an Origin Live modded RB300 on mine and (at present) an Empire 600LAC. Never spilt a drop of fluid or had any other problems. Love it!
  2. I've used ink-spot in my canon printers for about 5 years without problem.
  3. I enjoyed Modus. I'm now about half way through the second series of Wayward Pines. Some aspects are quite thought provoking while others are just unanswered questions.
  4. Just watched the final episode last night. Very well done but I thought it left too many hanging endings. Are they making a second series?
  5. There is a multi-page discussion on this topic on Lenco Heaven and also one on AudioKarma.
  6. Four episodes in to Hierro so far and looking good! Except for the barren landscape that is - no green at all!
  7. Another interesting aspect of electrical noise from Joe Saward! A Formula 1 car is a complex piece of machinery and all the different systems on it do sometimes disrupt one another. The cars have a great deal of electrical noise - undesirable electrical signals - which can distort or interfere with the desired signals. This is vary hard to master. On Saturday morning in Austin, the FIA issued a technical directive to the F1 teams detailing a system that Red Bull had proposed that might have allowed the team to run more than the allowed amount of fuel flow, based on using electircal noise to disrupt the sample pulses sent from the fuel flow metering units, that make sure the teams do not use too much fuel. The system was, of course, rejected by the FIA as being illegal. It is clear, however, that Red Bull did this for a reason, knowing the suggestion would be rejected, but in order to have the FIA clarify what was acceptable and what was not acceptable. And thus draw a line in the sand. Red Bull is believed to have suspected that other teams might be using such a system, or something similar to it. Using more than the allowed fuel flow could create a situation in which a team might be able to burn more fuel at certain points in a race weekend, which would give the engine a little bit of extra power when it was most needed, particularly when accelerating at slow speeds, which would allow the car to carry the additional speed up through the acceleration curve and so produce a higher top speed. It seems that the system that Red Bull created, based on experiments it conducted, allowed pulses going from the fuel flow-metre, which samples what is going on, to be disrupted by external electrical “noise”.
  8. Ah, yes. Another excellent few hours of viewing!
  9. I liked Series one of Public Enemy and Series 2 is a good follow-on. I loved the hanging ending which leaves it open for Series 3!!
  10. There is a website here: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SL-Technics-1200mk2-1210mk5-1200mk5G-Full-Length-Faceplates-Covers/183915322634?_trkparms=aid=1110001&algo=SPLICE.SIM&ao=1&asc=20140131123730&meid=1248e5a3d1d7438d95cb6b64e381e5fb&pid=100167&rk=6&rkt=15&sd=283563351290&itm=183915322634&pmt=0&noa=1&pg=5411&_trksid=p5411.c100167.m2940 and some pages of discussion here: https://theartofsound.net/forum/showthread.php?65835-Do-you-have-a-tatty-1200-or-1210
  11. +1 for Asylum City and probably +2 for Riviera! Lots of good stuff about. Just finished Deep State, and if you want an emotional few hours then watch 'Blood'
  12. You could probably borrow someones' nail varnish which would do the same job!
  13. What a great setup for the office or as a starter system, and at a bargain price too! It should fly very quickly. GLWTS
  14. Probably not a fashionable response, but why not turn the speakers on their sides? That would give you space under the speakers for a variety of solutions. Given their position and closeness in the room you are not going to lose anything in imaging and visually they would be quite acceptable. In near field listening it is a fairly common practice.
