    Wife finds theatre too loud. Bumming me out! How can I make it 5db quieter for only her?

    Is her hair long enough to cover her ears? If that’s not enough in itself, experiment by pinning bits of fabric or sound absorbent foam to the inside of the buns.

    What is / are your most memorable camera(s)?

    Contax 139, my first camera purchase. I set off to Tottenham Court Rd (London’s old Camera/Hi-Fi Shop street) intending to buy a Yashica FX-D twin lens kit, but was swayed by the sexy Contax display. I ended up with what was essentially the same camera, but with a single Zeiss 50mm f1.7 lens...

    Top Three Male Rock Vocalists?

    I just think that the ‘rock’ part of rock and roll is not a simple abreviation, but relates to the louder, angrier, more aggressive aspect of popular music. I have no problem including vocalists such as Robert Plant or Freddy Mercury who were equally adept across a range of vocal styles. I would...

    Top Three Male Rock Vocalists?

    I clearly have too much time on my hands, and am over-thinking things here, but your argument depends on whether you consider folk-rock to be a sub genre of rock music, or rock and folk-rock as two related but distinct sub genres of popular music. There will always be overlaps in such arbitrary...

    Top Three Male Rock Vocalists?

    Lemmy, Tom Araya and James Hetfield and no, I wouldn’t consider James Taylor to be a rock vocalist.

    The first Ip Man is definitely up there. The scene where he fights 10 Karateka is one of the best ‘one against many’ fight choreography ever. The sequels? Not so good.

    Loxjie A30 Amplifier Review

    Nope. Sounds fine to me. If you’re noticing audible midrange deficiency, I would imagine either the source component, speakers/speaker placement, room treatment etc… are the culprit, or you have a broken Loxjie A30. Do you have access to REW and a Umik-1 to see if the measurements corroborate...

    Whats the instrument called in the song Lye La Lye from simon and garfunkel that sounds a littel like a duck?

    How infuriating for Paul Simon. He spends hours finely crafting the music and lyrics to a song. Art forgets the words mid recording, and his ‘Lie-la-lies’ become the the only thing that stick in the mind, eventually becoming the informal title to many. No wonder they fell out!

    Chord Company launches GroundARAY noise-reduction devices for your hi-fi separates.

    I think you’re right. It is confusing for the average consumer, but if it doesn’t adversely affect either company’s business, and neither company has any interest in producing the other’s products, there’s really no reason to go to the expense of litigation. Or maybe they did, and the courts...

    https://chord.co.uk/chord-history/ https://chordelectronics.co.uk/john-franks-chord-electronics-took-flight Maybe the UK’s a little less keen on costly litigation. Or maybe neither company feels the other is adversely affecting their reputation, a bit like the Rolls Royce and Brough Superior...
