    Bargain whatever the price.

    I had to travel all the way to Hamburg, and spent a week with my head in wheely bins in the Reeperbahn, to get anywhere near the same aroma.

    Maybe the designer tried a variety of colour finishes and found 'cerise' sounded the best?
    Lol - it's a crazy/mad price for a cartridge, no doubt, but trust me, it definitely delivered the musical goods, unlike the 'all hi-fi and no music' forensic-meisters one normally finds today, with super high-end MC cartridges!

    I don't think I've ever heard anything better. Bloody fugly looking thing though, although obviously very well 'screwed together'.

    Who cares, really. At the end of the day if he was comfortable in them, had the confidence to wear them. You lot are like old women gossiping over nothing.

    It's only a bit of banter and knowing Alan, he would enjoy getting a rise out of us "gossiping old women" (ageist BTW) discussing his strides.

    I realise being a the supreme Dalek every day must be hard, especially as most places have stairs you can't negotiate, but lighten up!

    Stairs, anti gravity drive underneath solved that issue long ago
