    I'm nigel.

    Default tv hifi spotting

    after much boredom-drinking I have had the bright idea of a hifi spotting thread....

    so far I have seen a pioneer 1250 receiver in a virgin ad with that guy off
    breaking bad....who my wife fancies...grrr

    I also spotted a nad av receiver in the latest episode of mimic....just behind the bird off shane meadows "this is england".

    oh..a few weeks back i also spied a fisher valve based receiver....a pattern here methinks!!..in a old episode of columbo, can't recall the plot mind.

    c'mom people, pass on your spots......perhaps the site owner could offer a prize every week for the best spot!!!!

    What do you think this is, Christmas?

    Good idea for a thread, though, even if I haven't got a scooby-doo what "breaking bad" is....

    Saw what looked like a Sansui receiver on a Galaxy chocolate ad, James Nesbit's character in "Murphy's law" owns a pair of Royd Edens... Can't think of anything else recent.

    There's an e-cig ad where a group of hipsters start there own club in a derelict building or something, always makes me laugh as it shows the fella setting up a belt drive TT then in the next shot he's scratching on it

    In the movie Clockwork Orange, there is the famous Transcriptors supplied by John Michell. The film starred Malcolm McDowell and was shot in Elstree. In the film Gangster Number One. i supplied on hire, a Garrard 401 SME 3009 mk1 in a Loricraft plinth, TWO Revox A77s one high speed, one low a 33, FM2 and a 303 rounded off with a pair of Tannoy Lancasters. The film starred Malcolm McDowell and was shot in Elstree, do you see a pattern emerging

    There was a drama-documentary about Jacqueline du Pré (made for TV) which depicted the use of a Thorens 125/SME deck with Quad 33/FM3 electronics.

    Quad ESL 57s and Ferrograph (Wright & Weaire) tape decks appear in the Powell and Pressberger film "Peeping Tom".

    In one episode of Elementary Holmes is seen in front of MacIntosh equipment in his brownstone.

    House also had a turntable in his office at the hospital. Couldn't tell what it was though...

    Matt Damon's girlfriend in The Departed listened to evidence of his discretions on a cd playing on a full McIntosh system through a pair of Sennheisers...

    I remember my mum telling me that Insp Morse had a nice rig. I can't claim that one though as I've never watched an episode...
