    So after buying a Ifi Zen Air dac/headphone amp the other week have given it a fair listen now for the computer, Didn't realise that it was this good!

    Yep, quite a stunning album that takes several listens imo before it gels.

    Probably is, but I never play my copy because it sounds shite. I blame it on being a picture disc.

    I just dropped in, to see what condition my condition was in

    T/T: Inspire Monarch, X200 tonearm, Ortofon 2M Black. Phono: Project Tube Box CD: Marantz CD6006 (UK Edition); Headphone/pre: Myryad Z40; Amp: Musical Fidelity A5 Integrated. Audion Silver Night 300b stereo is enjoying a holiday
    Speakers: Zu Omen Def. Cables: Atlas Equator interconnects, Atlas Hyper 3.0 speaker cables

    T'other system:
    Echo Dot, Amptastic Mini One,Celestion 5's, BK XLS-200 DF

    A/V:
    LG 55" OLED, Panasonic Blu Ray, Sony a/v amp, MA Radius speakers, REL Storm sub

    Forget the past, it's gone. And don't worry about the future, it doesn't exist. There is only NOW.

    Don't be so hard on the vinyl format, you might upset some of the loyal legions of fans of the format on here who may read your comment!!!

    You know my answer to your conundrum - CD!!!

    It's not that Loz, I don't have a problem with vinyl, but I've long harboured the feeling that picture discs and coloured vinyl tend to sound 'wrong'. At least that is what I've found with the few I own.

    I also have "We Too Are One", "Revenge", "Touch", "Be Yourself Tonight" and "Savage" on normal black vinyl (all fine iirc), and "Peace" on CD which is excellent.

    But I'll put "Sweet Dreams" on my CD wish list. Not heard it in years.

    You're never gonna believe it but, I managed to pick it up on CD from a charity shop on Saturday for £1. Mind you, I have owned it on (black) vinyl since it came out and it still sounds good on there too; but for a £1....................... I thought, that's coming home with me!!!

    Definitely put it on your wish list - it's worth it !!!!!
