  1. yer great buying - I got it in gold after the Euro awards when it came out ages ago, really sings - makes most stuff sound good not just the usual well recorded girlie vocals. 'Big' powerful sounding amp with a little honey and a touch of sparkle. Switch off and on to engage "Class A" and wait 'til it gets hot to really sing, takes a little while from cold to perform best imho, quite addictive.
  2. A great bastion of HT freedom! What a pair! should watch this 80s remake now.
  3. Polar is great fun! on Netflix with Mads Mikkelsen - Should really go and see him in "Arctic" before it leaves the cinema - that looks fantastic. "yer but no but" "what's the score George Dawes" like you never seen him befor.
  4. flippin' heck Will is that denon microwave oven really a huge power amp? or you throw in the popcorn at interval? and is that a fan on the top? nice!
  5. Climbing films are tricky to get that balance that interests a wide audience (rather than climbers). Saw it at IMAX - it really was a fantastic movie/doco and Alex' character (and his GF relationship!) really tops it off. I was a reasonably handy climber in my youth and this is so impressive and such an unimaginable achievement and I also found it "exciting" to watch on the big screen. The Dawn Wall is (considerably harder climb) but in another way is also great and the teamwork between Kevin and Tommy is really ace.
  6. good buy that man - the nima unipivot is meant to be a great arm and to buy alone is more than this combined price can play with some LED mood lighting and give it that tarantella look!
  7. this one was a real surprise after a string of disappointments from the VideoEze kiosk! ... they used original 1940s rifles/weapons! the extras are well worth a watch... and a soft R rating... very effective soundtrack. I think I'll grab the B-ray.
  8. Saw it at Imax Mel yesterday - thought it was good, very watchable, good fun great in 3D outstanding effects.... but it's imax!. Familiar faces some tricky to spot in their cyborg get up - was that lawnmower man with some cyborg dogs?. Christopher always good especially getting a swastika carved on his forehead...but he's a good guy in this
  9. Got good review in U.K. Press too... https://www.whathifi.com/velodyne/impact-12/review
  10. My recent (cough) upgrade was unplugging an old Marantz pm7000 from a cheap power board (erm Jackson 10A 2400W) that has my Avi s21 integrated also plugged in. It's now as if I have a subwoofer. The curious thing is that I think the Marantz was on standby some of the time too. Does this make sense ? If Amps have quite big torroidals do they like their own supply/wall. Also before id describe the sound as clean maybe a bit dry now it's moist and seems more musical and goes low with no fatigue .. anyhow happy times and I should prob invest in a better board. Is this a well known symptom/issue Or is something else poss going on.
  11. Just saw this....fantastic WesAnderson film very beautiful, smart and funny.
  12. looks like this.... https://www.ionforgeonline.com/Pro-Series-Headphone-Stand
  13. welly welly welly wow - I've heard and even read on well known hifi shop facebook pages that the Gyrotech is the clockwork Orange deck but this is the real deal - a real collectors and centre piece. ... just spin some Ludwig Van and trundle off to the milk bar. Good Luck!
  14. I think this one got to me when I first saw it not knowning anything about it - it still does. The soundtrack by Marc Streitenfeld is really quite haunting strings/orchestra and paino - keeps the eyes good and moist. Great scenery and the acting is top (Liam, Frank Grillo etc). Walking through deep snow is hard enough never mind the ....... Just keep watching it through the credits... like a Marvel.
