  1. Just bought the latest Samsung 950T it’s good 👍 And in sale at GGs
  2. Sonos already have a “ connect” implemented for Apple so it’s just a matter of others also doing so, I suspect on one has till now as Apple Music was all lossy and Airplay was more than good enough
  3. Mmmmm, don’t think I get on with Dolby Audio, can see how some would but even the less tampered with still sound to unnatural to me, perhaps a well done remix of DSOM would use the tech to advantage. However the mid range hi res ( I.e. 24 / 48 ) sound good to me on well known reference tracks, and that’s with a basic USB DAC out of the spares draw as my main system is currently totaly analog
  4. Sonos have Apple Music on the device no need for airplay, so its possible and allowed by Apple just as it is with Tidal/Qubuz. My understanding is that few have done it as thill now Apple Music was all compressed. I expect (hope?) that we will see mainstream streamers integrate Apple Music in coming months.
  5. Shame none of the current ATVs have optical out, they lost it after series 3, Using current ATV you will need a HDMI DAC
  6. I use them, great product for decoupling on wood floors, plus they do slide
  7. Yep, and also of note - the Special 40s are listed as Recommended B (limited low frequencies)
  8. How do you find the Heritage Specials, seriously considering them for my system
  9. Note he also bags out the internal wiring as "cheap run of the mill" - its actually Van den Hull ???? I am sure better caps and so on in the cross over will make a difference, certainly so do Dynaudio given that one fo the additions to the Heritage Special. Every thing is a cost v benefit and unfortunately in the world of manufacturing additional component costs usually work out to be 4x in the final RP.
  10. Ok I own Special 40s and love them - so I am totally biased but I agree 100% he talks a good talk but seems totally focused on "his measurements" and how he can improve those rather than listening to the end result. No matter how cynical you may be, no way Dynaudio releases speakers without total understanding of all those measurements and many many more, as well as lots of listening to the product. Their decisions are deliberate to get what they believe is the best sound. For example the simple first order cross over Dynaudio is used to prioritise the time domain ( something he does not
  11. I am also a bit of a knife nut - my advice quality over quantity the - two like the below are probably all you need just add a $20 bread knife. These are much sharper than the Global / Furi and made from harder steel that will hold an edge, ( FYI the hammers edge stops food sticking) https://www.kazsknifeonline.com.au/collections/japanese-knife-sets/products/2-knife-set-jikko-vg10-damascus-gyuto-21cm-and-petty-13-5cm Add a 1000/6000 Whetstone and go to youtube for lessons https://www.kitchenware.com.au/shun-classic-whetstone-300-1000-1.html?gclid=CjwKCAiAx
  12. Initially looking to see if someone is interested in the whole colection at a bargain price, pick up preferred but they are boxed up so possibly could post at buyers expense, the total colection weighs a bit so might not be cheap ! The photos are of just some of the movies, can provide a complete set if required and I have attached a PDF of all titles - PM me if you want me to send the list. If no one is interested in the complete set I will try ebay for the bulk and just list the music titles on this site separate. Thanks Further informa
  13. Wow, how’s it sound, Amazing how much weight you can put on those Herbie sliders ?
  14. Ok, hard to see the point of a suspended turntable with motors attached to the chassis, but then Rega have the motor on their chassis with a similar advanced power supply so ........
