Hmm a detached house, i wish.....i used to rent an old chapel house which was detached....great to let rip..........don't think the chapel goers liked my music though :oops: but at first i was just trying to drown out their singing :twisted: ..... to be honest every other Sunday i'd give it a rest, to be respectful as the rest of the time was mine :wink:

just bought this. My first valve amp. Works well with my Whardale 9. Next a quality pair of headphones and a better cd player

Barking!

I now have a 1988 Technics SE M100 amplifier - onboard DAC with twin mono amplification. Very very nice compared to the Quad gear I had for a short time.

I loved my 606 and 44 but other stuff sounded better.

Music is from a Yamaha Music cast, one of the last things from down the tip. A £2000 posh hifi PC with a massive 80gb hdd - massive for 2004! The software is out there for a bigger hdd but cant be bothered yet.

It is very good with its lossless audio ripping/ playback but a bit of a technological dinosaur. Its built in wifi is now too old to communicate with the router. I have to hardwire it to update Gracenote.

Speakers are still Mission 753.

Bought a cheap A to D converter for the ipod to go into the Technics - it works rather well for £8!

I still have a LOT of other bits, plus am now a bit of a convert to the original Goodmans speakers. Have a set of Magnums and some Dimension 8

Very nice Amp :wink:

Those speakers are interesting, what design are they?

My own Hi-Fi consists of a Pioneer SA-9500 II Amp, Pioneer CT-F1000, Pioneer TX-9500 Tuner, Project RPM 6 (Phono Box SE + Goldring MM cart) Brennan JB7 and Mordaunt Short floorstanders :D

Amp, (not mine):

Those Dimension 8 driver arrangement gave a wide image, beyond that I dont know. I do still have a Gilbert Briggs book somewhere, I think the design is included.

They sound ok at low levels but start to shrill at quite modest volumes so I think the 40 year old crossovers need work.

Anyone for a set of B&W DM603.2? I have a spare set. Not impressed with them myself as they dont suit my tastes, found them a bit woolly.
