    Fair enough. I thought transistorised consoles didn' t take hold until the 1970s. I'm surprised you could even buy one in 1967.

    I said almost. What was computerised in a recording studio in 1967? What was transistorised?

    But the deal still happened. More than 50 percent of our trade is already with countries outside the EU. If it was such a big problem how does that...

    Pre computer anything. 1967 was almost pre solid-state anything.

    You know what I mean. A lathe that does not use a digital delay line then.

    No you are both wrong, there are not hundreds of analogue lathes around, there have not been since the 1970s. Possibly an idea to do some reading up...

    Not possible though because when you come to cut your vinyl record the signal is converted to digital for the cutter head. This is really the killer...

    Hello Macca

    100+del. It is 11.4kg and 434x171x383mm. I believe Royal Mail does not go over 10kg but ParcelForce next day is about 25 for guaranteed one-day.

    Two things you may want to know; On-screen-display is not over HDMI I think, but uses the lesser video connectors. Also, it does not decode all the lastest sound formats on blu-ray so if this is important you should make sure you have a blu-ray player that can do the decoding. All the modern players do I believe.

    Regards
    Sean
