    Erm, haven't you heard of a dictionary or phrase book, daftee?

    It would be very unusual too, based on my experience of visiting Germany, for no-one there to speak any English (as it's very much an English speaking country)... In any case, with a bit of effort, you'll always get by!

    I can't tell if the mobile pics and Tapatalk posting looks OK this end as all I have is a mobile! If indeed they aren't rubbish I'll post some more later.

    When i was there a German in hotel, who was barman/chef, said if i come across anyone who doesnt speak enough English to get by, then not to waste my time trying to converse as he will be not worth talking to He said this and meant it.

    Lol... Indeed.

    I've been to Germany umpteen times, and to various different parts of the country, and NEVER had an issue with folk not being able to speak English. The same applies in Austria, where we were last year. In fact, English is taught there in all their schools!

    In any case, for me (if I don't already speak it), learning some words of a new language, in order to communicate with locals, is all part of the fun of travelling abroad

    Rockport / Soulution sounding very coherent. I vastly prefer these to the larger side firing woofer efforts I heard a while back. These speakers do good bass in my book.

    A bit more Tune. I am completely unsurprised to see a brace of EML valves in the power amps as the sonic signature reminded me a bit of their 45 solid plate, Lampizator Special 45 and 274B valves.

    The name of the game with EML is a huge spacious sound. That works with these horns but is less convincing in my room with my speakers.
