  1. I won't lie, I found most of the 9 episodes fairly meh to watch with Episodes 1 & 7 the exceptions. In fact I'd go so far as to say I liked the two independent spin-offs Rogue One & Solo the most enjoyable.
  2. Yes, but why the bloody hell does it keep moving??? 🥺
  3. Ain't that true of all of us, lol. Love the system Clive. I must admit it's tremendous to see what people have accumulated over the journey.
  4. I've been waiting for this to come out and thought it was tremendous. TBH, I thought it was more thunderous than ever and if the bass was clipped I certainly didn't pick it up.
  5. "In theory" the less components in the chain the better..........but that is "in theory". If I trust my ears though, my Parasound JC2 BP pre amp has proven to be a most worthy addition and I'd say it's probably the most talented component in my system. Too often I think we can be blinded by specifications, statistics and theories rather than trusting our own ears......which at the end of the day is where it's at. For me, I couldn't go back to system that doesn't have a quality pre-amp. JMO FWIW.
  6. Thanks for all the enquiries. Sold pending payment.
  7. Colour: Titanium Silver Extra Info: I've owned this unit since new and it was purchased approximately 3 and a half years ago. Comes with box, books, remote and power cable. Can be used with balanced, unbalanced or digital interconnects. Looks like new and presents as such. Too good a unit to simply be sitting in a box unused. Can be shipped at buyer's expense.

  8. There's enough top soil in that thing to plant a veggie patch.
  9. Anytime @Arv. Out of curiosity, have you ever tried the speaker cables plugged into the LF binding posts on your B&Ws or have you only had them either plugged into the HF posts or diamond wired??? I run Furutech Speaker Flux from the amp to speaker and Furutech Jumper Flux as jumpers. It's just the way my speakers are wired internally, but thanks for the suggestion...................and thanks for putting the thread back on track too. 👍
  10. I get theory behind it, but at the risk of sounding obvious I'd say consult your speaker manual. Most electrical circuits, including those in your speakers, are designed to produce optimum results with the current flowing through them in a particular direction. For example, every B&W manual I looked at shows the speaker cables from the amp plugged into the bottom set of terminals on the speaker. Then add your jumpers. The manual doesn't say you have to connect it this way, but it recommends you do to get the best performance. On the other hand, the manual on my Revels recommend the speaker cables go from the amp to the top set of speaker terminals and then add your jumpers. Neither is wrong, it is simply based upon how the manufacturer has designed their speaker to produce optimal performance. FWIW, I tried your diamond wiring. No, nada, nope, nup. Midrange was incoherent, messy and muddled. 3D imaging was all buty lost. Timing went right out the window. There may, or may not, be a set of speakers out there that diamond wiring may suit, but it certainly isn't mine. That said, I've yet to find a speaker manual that recommends the use of IsoAcoustic GAIAs either. And we all know what a difference they can make.
  11. Based upon your speaker specs you've provided: Look at the impedance range > 4-8 ohms. The speaker may only require 20w to power them producing a frequency requiring 8 ohm impedance, but if the frequency shifts and then changes the required impedance to 4 ohms then it may well need 40w of power to make that happen. The other thing the speaker manufacturer will allow for is that most amplifiers should be able to produce an unclipped signal up to 80% of their rated/claimed power output. 80% of 50W is 40W. Realistically you could have a nice little Class A or A/B amp that puts out 25W at 8ohms and then doubles to 50W at 4ohms that will quite happily power those speakers. Do that mean it's a 25W/ch amp or a 50W/ch amp??? That's the question.
  12. Can't say that I've ever had that issue with discs that have been locally released. Played a few just for interests sake: Eagles - Hell freezes over DVD Apocalypto - BR Blood Diamond - BR Eagle Eye - BR Hitman Unrated - BR Master & Commander - BR All good. The disc that's probably been hammered more than any other over the last 7-8 years is Bryan Ferry - Live in Lyon. Lost count how many times I've watched/listened to it and plays just as good as the day I got it.
  13. It'll be interesting to see how Disney work the franchise. They have a habit making stuff available for a period and then pulling it from the market for quite some time.......even years. Could become quite collectable, depending upon the quality of the transfers. More of a Trekky myself. Dunno why though.
