  1. Consumers will need to ask and speak up

    Think organisations use the cloud to lower upfront hardware and software costs while minimising maintenance costs. Personally think it’s a short term “cheap” (and lazy) approach with potential for...

    Hooked on Solid State

    Tube amps in my opinion take more effort and costs to own. Tubes need changing and adjustments. They run hot and consume more power. The amp you mention has only 20 watts of power so personally I...

    Music makes us happy people

    Rely on your happiness as a goal. We live in a world of engineered insecurities. Set out what you want, go for it and never come back to any “hifi” website including this one.

    Be intimate with your speakers - SHL5 experience

    I’ve recently moved house to a quieter area with higher ceilings but to what I thought would be a less ideal listening room as it was “hard”, having tiled floors. It echoed a bit initially, becoming...

    Sounds and Music

    Congratulations Alan.

    In addition to listening, any child should be exposed to music making on a tactile musical instrument. Perhaps a xylophone set? It might drive the parents mad, but a...

    Lets all be safe than sorry.

    Hi henningh

    Those are real and unfortunate examples reported by the West Australian Commerce department over a 10 year period. The 10 year sample suggests approximately 18% of electrical...

    Good to be curious... but what about supervision?

    Think that’s called parenting or supervision. We rely too much on others for prevention, safety and well being.

    It will be too late to blame a manufacturer/ service provided for lack of...

    Back in my days...

    Kids can damage anything they want or choose. They can even, god forbid, do some major damage to themselves in the process. So lets not leave it to others for this. There was a rod back in my days.
  10. Yes you can= 'air'

    I've put one ear perpendicularly up to the supertweeter before. Play something with plenty of cymbals. You can distinguish the tweeter (which sticks out slightly from the fabric) from the super...
  11. Sticky: Overbearing precautions and unplanned outcomes?

    How overbearing does it have to be to prevent unplanned outcomes? fluoxetine, hpv vaccine, thalidomide?

    We have nothing to learn from the self interest of the drug industry in general. We all have...
  12. Sticky: ... and it's not only one person's opinion or one event which matters!

    Scientifically and mathematically, fortunately or unfortunately depending on which side one is on, it takes more than one person's opinion or event/s to make a choice statistically significant. Who...

    Bye bye beetle

    Squeezebox touch was probably the hardest consumer gadget to get up and running for me. i don't miss it one bit. It is amazing though what it can do for what they were going for eg. play SD cards,...

    Fix for bass junkies

    If its bass we crave, wouldn’t an equaliser or tone controls be a simpler and more elegant fix?. ive been mucking with an amplifier with turnovers at 40Hz, 100, 150 and 200 Hz on an SHL5. It can be a...

    Statistics and feelings

    The method is crucial

    If I may be late to the party, I think we might be confusing subjective methods and subjective perceptions.

    Safety in flight

    Thanks for sharing. If it wasn’t so true it would be even funnier.

    Sticky: First steps with an Atom PC (with Windows)

    Hi Alan

    Depending on what input/ outputs your HP Atoms came with, they are almost ready to go as a client if you have windows on them. These are those small bare bone client boxes, yeah?

    Listening to sensibilities - a serious, honest overview of audiophila (from the reformed)

    Hi Rob

    If I were to set up another system with a new amp and cd player, I'd buy something with very good value, well made and sensibly designed. One of the ways to establish this is to look at...
  22. Great speakers for television as well

    Yes, very good speakers. I forget im listening to “something”. I’ve started watching tv and listening through the SHL5’s. I run the output from a playtv - playstation 3 (hdmi) into my tv out to...

    Imho, saying FM is un-listenable is close to saying all modern CD quality is nonsense. Its almost true, but i wouldn’t go as far as to say that, but there are indeed big variances in “quality”. My...
