    They look great. In fact your whole system looks fantastic. That red rug wants taking out and burning though ;)

    I think for some an accurate recording is the event played live and recorded with a stereo pair. That seems to be the sort of quality of recording...

    That wasn't a test of the quality of the recording though. Just a test of the preference for lossy or lossless format.

    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?

    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
