    Is that what they call the West Mids now then, Phil?

    Otherwise, thanks!

    I'm really sorry Marco - missed your reply completely!
    I live between the cemetery and the Brickie!

    I bought some kit from Acton Gate years ago but as you can see my kit is a little downmarket for Acton Gate!
    It's Fleabay, Gumtree and Facebook for me haha.

    No problem, Andy

    Ah yes, I know where you are. Acton Gate Audio is one of the last 'proper' family-run hi-fi shops in the UK. I've been going there since the 90s. They sell all sorts of stuff.

    Worry not, we specialise in making great sounds out of 'cheap tat', lol!

    No honestly, we're big here on showing folks how to get the highest 'sound-per-pound' from their systems, so aside from advice you receive on the forum, if there's anything I can ever do to help with your system, just pop me a PM. I have a fair bit of experience in know how to get the most out of systems, on a budget.

    Anyway, hope you hang around and become a regular contributor. Enjoy!

    Marco.

    It's pretty good. See here: http://www.eagles-meadow.co.uk/ There's also another smaller shopping centre, and quite a few interesting places in the town centre, although like a lot are now, it's a little rundown compared with how it used to be, as shops close due to folks doing most of their shopping at the centres or online.

    There's a proper old-fashioned record shop, too: https://www.google.com/maps/uv?hl=en...oiowCnoECA8QBg

    About an hour and a half's drive. We were there last year. Yeah, I know you liked The Prisoner

    I'm more interested in the architecture and beautiful views
