Today I have mainly been V2.0


#3579

I booked a random inexpensive hotel in Kanazawa which scored well on booking.com. We arrived a couple of hours ago. It has a nice bar.


Only in Japan.


#3580

at the third attempt Amazon delivered these

thankfully they were in bottle boxes, as the external packaging was wrecked.


#3581

Cleaning up the stairs ahead of new carpet being fitted next week. Last job of renovation project, taken nearly four years.

Just got the faff of pictures and stuff to sort out.


#3582

Got a little bit tipsy last night and bought some speakers…


#3583

How many pairs now?


#3584

Not that many, I’m counting the three pairs of Snell K’s as one item.


#3585

You can’t have too many pairs of speakers :laughing:


#3586

Did you buy them as an investment? :thinking:


#3587

Yes. that’s exactly what I planned all along, yes sirreee all along.


#3588

How’s that new amp turning out?


#3589

What are they please?

(yes, they’re speakers, but make and model)


#3590

It’s something special, have been trying out some different valves and it sounds fantastic with the tune audios.

For less than £2500 I got an 845 amp from china, chucked in £500 worth of valves and an autotransformer to step down to 220v.

Soundwise it’s similar to the SJS 300b I had but with the KT77’s and CV4004’s is a bit more forward or aggressive in the treble, Listening to the calcination of scout nisblett that @browellm recommended and the guitar just slams you in the chest.


#3591

Devore (funky) gibbon 88


#3592

Always wanted to hear a pair of those


#3593

Struggling to deal with my latest bout of vertigo. General feeling of queasiness interrupted by occasional full on room swirling episodes.

The walk out with the dogs was interesting, but it had to be done.


#3594

What a cool place


#3595

Sounds awful

Is there medication for it?


#3596

Not as far as I know. I do have some tablets, left over from the last time, that reduce the sickly feeling, but that’s about all. They don’t stop the dizzy stuff.


#3597

Hope it passes quickly, :pray:


#3598

My sympathies Paul, my Father suffered with it. I think his was caused by inner ear problems.
