    Yeah, hope Col's ok. Give him my best, Bev. Tell him he needs to be intravenously fed with copious quantities of Amarone!

    Thanks Phil, yes we have nothing but praise for the NHS and over the 17 years that Colin has had his diagnosis he has been treated so well... copious amounts of Chemotherapy, a stem cell transplant and a trial drug are not nice things to go through but the NHS have been superb throughout. He will never be cured but his treatment has kept him with us so far. When he was first diagnosed in 2000 he was given about 5 years but he's still with us 17 years on and doing much better now after his most recent 'upset' and his blood shows recovery in the right direction

    What a fighter he is... he always amazes me

    Thanks again to all for your kind words, much appreciated

    Thanks Dan for your kind words...

    We should still have that bake-off sometime... I've 'trimmed' my system right back but still have 2 x AN amps which is a bit extravagant I guess.. the only one I could bring along would be the Oto as the Meishu is just soooo heavy... it's a two man/women lift

    However I think you have plenty of kit so it'd be very interesting to take a listen

    Do you have any valve amps Dan ?
