    Re: Nordhavn yachts

    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!

    I was impressed with the build quality and comfort...

    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.

    When many buyers take...

    Re: Recordings to test your speakers

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

    To suggest that amongst the "best-produced recordings" there should be several from the 1960s suggests that recording techniques have not...

    My second home is in France, or the Netherlands, or Belgium, or Germany, or anywhere else connected by water.

  8. 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

    Have you asked your friend why he is particularly interested in tube SETs? I use Avantgarde Duo XDs and moved away from tubes to SS 3 years ago and no regrets for doing so. I now listen to far more...

    Re: Greenline Yachts

    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.

    Interesting to see at about 14 minutes in,...

    Re: Greenline Yachts

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

    Re: Greenline Yachts

    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...

    Re: Greenline Yachts

    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.

    Re: Accuphase E-800

    I'm not familiar with your speakers or the E-800 for that matter, but I did own the Accuphase A-36 for a year or so powering my Avantgarde horn speakers.

    About 35 years ago I placed a "Large Loudspeakers Wanted" advert in a local newspaper and received a reply offering a pair of what turned out to be Westrex 2326A studio speakers. I paid £20 for the...

    Re: Nad c 658 bluos streaming dac review

    Thanks for posting that Joe. Generally a very good review of a modestly priced product. It offers most of what the M10 and M33 do, though perhaps at a slightly lower level than the M33. In...

    Many thanks - very helpful.

    Now you mention it, I do remember reading that this mic offers 2 correction curves so I'd probably use the forward facing option. I'm happy taking a small number of...

    Re: Avantgarde Uno XD Review (97/100)

    It has always been Avantgarde's view that the subs sound best wired to the speaker output rather than the XLR or phono line level one.

    I've tried with the older Duos (2006) and frankly I thought...
