1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    I know these only by repute, and I feel that they were more 'valvey' than my E.A.R.s so I wonder what changes you noticed into the same...

    My uncle (mother's brother) also served under Jellicoe in the Battle of Jutland; he couldn't have been much more than 16. I have fond...

    Thanks, Cyclopse. Surely class A runs rather warm at least. Mind you, I don't know which pre-power you had previously, but my E.A.R.s...

    I own the SIA-025 so have first hand experience. Mine has been in place four years now. I was all valve with a pre and mono block power...

  9. Mike Reed replied to the thread Anybody compared Vitus SIA-025 mk2 to Naim and Sonneteer Orton?.

    Think my recent trip to the Naim forum was the first in a decade, but despite the to-ings and fro-ings of that thread, I came away with...

  11. Mike Reed replied to the thread Anybody compared Vitus SIA-025 mk2 to Naim and Sonneteer Orton?.

  12. Mike Reed replied to the thread Anybody compared Vitus SIA-025 mk2 to Naim and Sonneteer Orton?.

  13. Mike Reed replied to the thread Rega P10 - would I still get benefit From a wall shelf with stone floor?.

    Stay as you are with that table (don't like calling them racks, as racks tend to be shelving against walls); no footfall prob's and good...

    Personally I'm very anti-skate but do enjoy other flatfish as long as they're not pink.

    I would also be interested in ANY comparisons involving Vitus, integrated like the SIA-025 or powers. As a former 552/135 owner and...
