    Music fidelity M6i

    The M6 is a solid amp, and will withstand many upgrades.. just do it!
  2. Den of Thieves: This is like a Heat lite... taking the heist element of that movie, then milking some emotion part out of it. There are also Now You See Me surprise twist parts in it, just so it does not appear to be a straight up heist movie. Does it work? Well I chose to focus on what it does well: The action. There's plenty of surround, good fight scenes and that for me, makes up for the wooden acting and the rather unnecessary relationship angle thrown in to make the lead more 'human'. A whole chunk could have been cut out without missing a beat. So is it a buy, rental or a skip it? I would say it's a rental at least and if it comes cheap, worth a leap of faith for action aficionados.
  3. What are the common adjectives to describe an action movie? Breath-taking stunts, bone crunching combat, breakneck pacing, side splitting dialogue with side kicks and a dash of romantic interlude? Well, here we have a movie with a functional plot, and an extremely hardworking superstar who really strives to make it work.. he is a wonderful chef, placing all the adjectives together into a wonderful movie which he dishes out with all his heart, blood and guts. That's the short take on this.. And that fist fight? Absolutely kinetic... http://peteswrite.blogspot.com/2018/07/mission-impossible-fallout-movie-review.html

    Beware when making updates - you may lose cross-mixing in future: https://www.audioholics.com/audio-technologies/dolby-non-native-upmixing-atmos

    I can't recall any company that deals online or takes email orders anymore. You probably need to turn up in Singapore.. They will certainly ship overseas from the post offices or Fedex offices after you pay in person
