The shit that doesn't merit its own thread (the resurrection)


#8078

I thought this looks interesting, but it’s the wrong type of speed


#8079


#8080

there could be trouble brewing


#8081

Can’t see this ending well!


#8082

As long as it ends, that’s the main thing.

Today’s most insulting LinkedIn message:

“Hello Alberto, [blah, blah, crap about about a non-existent job]”


#8084

Apparently Electrocompaniet are bankrupt.


#8085

Like that a LOT.

Very Mk11 Cortina sir.


#8086

I think the camera angle flatters it Mike, Iirc the Riva was a lot shorter than a cortina, more like a Fiesta with a boot in size.

I’d love to do a Mk11 Cortina hotrod, I wonder if you can fit a small block V8 in one…


#8087

Well, what do you know…


#8088

I’m sure there are some cracking Mk11 custom cars out there and I bet a V8 has been shoe horned into one.


#8089

Yep, the bankruptcy notice is online.


#8090

Ignore me :grinning:


#8091

Can’t see that on their website.

Shame.

Their kit was gorgeous. Back in the day I owned an ECI-3 integrated and then on to AW 180 monoblocks. Loved them back then. Now, perhaps just a tad sterile / hi-fi for me.


#8094

Early hifi show I went to had their integrated with a pair of Castle ( the originals ) speakers, and was the best sound at the show.


#8095

Funny you should say that. The integrated worked well with Castles and Pro-Ac stand mounts.


#8096

It made a lasting impression. Always regretted not buying a pair of Nemos when they came up at a very good price. Too cautious, should have just gone for it instead of waiting for a day off to go for a listen. They’d gone by then.


#8097

Bizarre…
