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 viewed my first house purchase with a B & O portable radio (and 'gosh' they were good) in my hand in early '75. I walked upstairs, tuned it in to a few stations and declared that I'd buy the place. Tuners (I'd had a few even by then) were a mainstay of musical enjoyment then as now.

    B&O receivers were up amongst the best.

    Even today a monster like the Beomaster 8000 makes sense, especially in France where FM is very much alive and kicking. No switch off forecast for the near future.
    Nobody has DAB here. Nobody.

    Yes, they were, and I had a few (early seventies). Not, however, easy to repair if things went wrong as they were jam-packed. I started with a 3000 or two (if I remember) and had another 4000(?) later. Lovely kit but not the most reliable, I found.

    Less about aesthetic, but more about the marvel of the humble compact cassette tape.

    A properly calibrated Nakamichi extracting close to 20Hz-20kHz fidelity that is indistinguishable from source on a basic quality formulation like TDK-D is truly fizz-worthy.

    Batman won't like that :D

    Anyway I think the Fathom f212 v2 and the Gotham g213 v2 are stunning :cool:

    I don't get it. Sorry.
