  1. @betty boop great looking system there, bit of a focal lover myself. It must sound absolutely awesome with a bit of volume on movies. What speakers did you go with for the rest of the system?
  2. First record I bought and he was awesome live. Right up there with the Emmanuel brothers when they were playing in small pubs in the 80's
  3. Kuzma Stabi S is a sensational turntable, just love mine. This is such a great price and with the right cartridge would slaughter most other turntables around the same price. GLWS, at this price shouldn't see out the day👍
  4. OMG it is black, it is always great to learn something new, didn't know esoteric came in black.
  5. Haven't played Hawkind for ages but really love this collection of songs.
  6. Thanks for reply. I worked it out from the Holton website. GLWS, nice amp at a great price.
  7. @Cardiiiii Nice build, I have a soft spot for kit amps having 5 x channels of the Greg Ball's SKA amps. Just for curiosity sake how big is the traffo, and how much capacitance per channel.
  8. @aussievintage I agree just love a live album, Teskey brothers released one this year that is an absolute gem, an outsanding performance if you like that sort of music. I have noticed that has been one of the advantages of the streaming era is that the pace of picking up and re-releasing all the old live stuff recorded in 60's and 70's across all formats has been awesome.
  9. Agree @rantan whilst I haven't listened to Cyrus gear, I have noted a distinct bias in What hifi magazine recommends over the years, and have developed an equally distinct bias against listening to most things they recommend. On matches made in heaven my Kuzma TT, ZYX MC Cartridge and RCM Sensor 2 are right up there if you are into vinyl. As quite partial to valve pre and ss amp combo's
  10. Great buying here. The tweeter cost almost as much as the speakers alone and the W cone series are the bomb in the focal line and have driven there speakers with only evolution for 20 years. GLWS.
  11. A quick question, I know it is off topic but how did the Elektra pre amp sound with the bryston amp. Was thinking about this as a combo?
  12. I missed out on some records from a local record store the Al Green and the black keys release. I went to discrepancy and found much to my surprise the difference in price was significant, so I passed. Splitting them into 3 releases this year is quite ingenious from a marketing point of view.
  13. Giving Rolling Stones Sticky Fingers a run for the first time😀
  14. I owned a pair of Bose 901's as my first pair of speakers and lived with them for 20 years, they became a bit impractical once I had kids as the stand is not particularly friendly and didn't have the space to wall mount them. But, I had a great time with that speaker and terrorised the neighbours for years with them, also learnt that unit blocks are NOT the place for music lovers who like a bit of volume. The active equaliser interacts with the pre-amp section of your integrated amp, they have a high power rating due to there original development as a professional audio speaker.
