    How did the Decca sound? I'm tempted to give it a go sometime.

    We think there is a fault with it as when I got to my house I couldn't get it to sound right, the pic is for illustration purposes.

    Think some of the pics are upside down Oli.

    The 770s are a bargain but would be a problem size wise in my room- aghh they are so good though!

    Oh? The ones of your gear ? Look ok on Tapatalk!?

    I'm sure someone will correct them lol


    Yes they look in great Condition. If they weren't in Scotland I'd be after them.

    James I'm thinking the Neat's might give you what you are looking for. Would you like to try them in your system(room) before the bake-off, then return them on the 25th?
    I could drop them over or you could collect from me, if you can find a short window of opportunity.

    They are a very clever speaker. Clever in the way they sound fantastically balanced bit take up very little room. An excellent idea Alan.

    Ye, just as far in the opposite direction to be honest. Can't tell how tidy from the pic either. Also, just spent 200 on a platter mat so need to replenish the fund first lol
