Hello people, not much going here lately.
Is it because of the lovely weather? It's about 25 degrees centigrade over here in the Netherlands!
I don't do much these days but i still like listening to music on the TL's (R50's so you will). If all goes as planned i will say goodbye to my beloved Cyrus two + PSX and buy a Naim amp!!
For as far as i know a great combination.
I wish you all good weather too, greets from Bert

Pretty darn quiet all right.
Suppose everyone's happily well served with their gear, their KEF's (& KEF based systems like you TL), and quietly just enjoying the music.
In the UK, recuperating from the Royal wedding perhaps?

Not 25 D in Canada yet .. but we're all ready for it. This Canuk is busy rediscovering the joys of Vinyl as I wish I could have heard it those olden day's .. through R.105 II's & IMF's!

Let’s see it’s warm, we’ve just had a NI and VAT tax hike Crying or Very sad, food and fuel are a silly price Mad, a referendum on the alternative vote when it should have been on proportional representation, a £5 billion (UK lost production) wedding of some unelected parasites, local elections and some Bank Holidays, so unless you’ve got wi-fi there’s no reason to be doing anything other than listening to music either indoors or out Very Happy .

Trouble in "Chavsville" on Bank Holidays is that you have no choice but to listen to several competing outdoor music systems playing dross for those with IQs of fully mature cucumbers, footballs being kicked against fences, brats screaming on B&Q trampolines at 120dB in several gardens, dogs barking, strimmers, lawn mowers that sound like buzz bombs, lager louts shouting whilst drinking copious ammounts of super strength Euro Fizz at their BBQs and all I wanted to do was sit in my back garden with a few dainty genteel drinks and a book... and listen to the birds Twisted Evil

One of our drinking buddies partly responsible for for one of (in my opinion) irritating and annoying Christmas songs! Very Happy

Yes I saw John Bell's offerings - aka royal-hifi & bakabunghippo on sleezeBay and the nice 104s he'd snaffled, I was at the far end of the hall S6/7 with my pal Gary.
