    No. If I e-mail him he always replies but I don't get regular updates or anything.

    I last e-mailed October 10th asking if before Xmas was a possibility, he replied to say they should be finished by end of November.

    In July it was just the internal baffles that needed to be done, not had any pics.

    Of course this was before second lockdown happened so probably all bets are off.

    The Blackcat digital cables i mentioned earlier are BNC connector cables, sold with the makers own recipe rca adapters...he totally gets the 75 ohm standard, in fact brought his own to market in 1992.

    One of those Ďfit n forgetí purchases, unless you donít have any use for a digital interconnect anymore!
    (hence me selling mine)

    Given now good the Audiolab is, be daft not to buy one again.

    Martin, if you want dibbs on my Wireworld spendy one to try, if itís not better just post it back to me mate.

    PM you for friend prices.
    Enjoying Hifi 'n stuff.

    Yeah, sure I get that. Would you like me to have a word? He's a friend so could probably get things moving a little quicker for you

    Let's give him a bit more time. It's not that close to Christmas yet. Be good to have them then as got 9 days off and not going anywhere this year.
