    Quite true James san, I don't think paper walls are going to work though. The neighbours are sure to object ;-)

    I'm hoping to bump into a glass tv/av stand at some point when I've actually got cas on me. They usually go for as little as a score and would keep the simple lines going.

    Very nice and just the thing but the price is the same as I've paid in total for the two ingots I already have. As I mentioned, rocking horse doodoo with a price to reflect that.

    Yeah thats a ridiculous price. I'll keep an eye out, have seen them go for 50 a few times.

    What are you planning to do with the Pioneer Andrew?

    Its been given to a local lad as it was a freebie for me. I'd like to have been able to sell it for beer vouchers but quite frankly apart from the mech' I really can't recommend them when for less bunce you can pick up a dvd player (these Sony are 45-/+) that sounds better.
    I think the Pioneer you had there was a much better piece of kit. The components used alone were of a higher spec then the PDS units I've had. They look good on the surface but when you get inside there's nothing special and as I say, they don't really sound all that.

    Oh man I just saved some pennies.
    Had me a brainwave and following a read of the manual for the dvp I have programmed the remote to control the volume on the amp.
    I'm not someone who HAS to have a remote but I'm all for a bit of convenience if it can be had.

    Hang on, is that Sebastian Vettel testing Adrian Newey's rehash of the sick 2014 Red Bull F1 car? Hmm, I'm not sure whether that conforms to FIA regs...
