    Re: Having fun with the NAD M33 …

    Joe - I'm glad you've managed to get your hands on a NAD M33 at last and that you are enjoying it. Lots to learn about it and sometimes useful features are not mentioned or explained well in the...

    Re: Hegel H390 Integrated Amplifier Review

    I believe it's a great all-in-one amp. Perhaps I'll borrow a demo unit and compare with my NAD M33 soon. At $10K, that's a big mark up for the US market. It lists here in the UK at £5000 including...

    Re: Cheap Audio Cable Review

    Duelund Speaker Cables recently had very favourable comments on this forum. Tin-coated OFC with a cotton and oil jacket. Available in 20, 16 and 12 gauges depending on length required and...
  4. Re: Comparing Qobuz and Tidal, what are your experiences?

    No. I thought my description was clear. The screenshot shows (in response to ezzigy's post) what is offered by Qobuz if you use the BluOS app (Bluesound / NAD) instead of Qobuz's own app. ...

    Re: Boulder 866

    What - No digital co-ax in? Seems a silly thing to leave out, but at least it offers AES, although some associated kit won't have an AES out, so users may have to resort to optical. No unbalanced...
  7. Re: Comparing Qobuz and Tidal, what are your experiences?

    Sound-wise, I found little difference but I prefer the genuine hi-res that Qobuz offers over Tidal's MQA offering and of course MQA is only available if you have compatible equipment.

    I preferfed...

    I'm on their mailing list too, seemingly after my first tour of a Nordhaven 15 years ago at the Southampton Boat Show - they have long memories!

    Re: Tube amplifier for Avantgarde Duo Mezzo XD

    I've never had very costly amps in my system but of the dozen or so solid state ones in the £3-8K range I've bought or home demo'd recently, I found the best sound and highest ME factor from the...

    Re: Recordings to test your speakers

    The sound at the dealers will have been achieved by the dealer setting them up carefully in his demo room with the help of test recordings or recordings he knows very well.

    I never put much faith in much of what What Hi-Fi says.

  15. Re: Duelund Speaker Cables for High Efficiency Speakers

    Paul - Can I ask what you mean by 16 ga vs "dual" 12 ga? I have some short sample lengths of Duelund DCA16GA pre-made as 2 core wires (both insulated in black) within a single outer jacket. I'm...

    Re: Tube amplifier for Avantgarde Duo Mezzo XD

    Thanks for the video link. All rather American sales talk! No mention that Greenline boats are built in Eastern Europe, though that's no disadvantage.

    That's quite impressive though as Greenline themselves say “At 4-5 knots, a fully charged battery pack provides a range of up to 20 miles”, I wonder what the range is at that sort of speed? The...

    I'd still suggest you try before you buy the exact model you are thinking of for the ICW. What power will the diesel engine be to proper the 39 at 20 knots? With 210 hp, I can't get anywhere near...

    Greenline are probably the most successful all-electric boat builders, though in practice all-electric is, for most owners who do their research first, a non-starter.
