    Haha. ' A dream of perfection. We're getting there. Those friends straining for the sweet spot with the new stereo set up, fantastic. Things haven't changed much have they?

    Well, that has got to be the best clip I've seen for a long time. I think I've still got those Tannoy's.

    Not quite old enough to have witnessed all this , but not far off.

    Hi-FI just don't change.

    Watching that has made my day.

    Is it a disease???
    “Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of fuel. Sentimental people call it inspiration, but what they really mean is fuel. I have always needed fuel. I am a serious consumer. On some nights I still believe that a car with the gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio”
