    Is that one all SS Steve, or is it still a hybrid?

    After trying all the bookshelf/standmount speakers, I have settled on the Yamaha floorstanders but have also kept the excellent Teac LS-500U standmounts. I sold the Tannoy Mercury F1 Custom, which had been in my second system for a while and swapped those for the Yamaha NX-E100. I made a good profit on all the sales; a couple sold for way more than I expected. That's enough speaker swapping for a while; it was fun and educational. I don't think you have to spend a great deal on speakers to get good/very acceptable results and it's surprising how different presentations are when you can switch instantly between two sets.

    (I had nine sets of standmounts in my upstairs studio at one point. Alison noticed, )

    Both ears are still partly blocked. I got a large piece of gunk out of my right ear, the one that was sore, but my hearing hasn't come back. I'm due to see the practice nurse soon so I'm going to ask to be referred to the ENT clinic again. I should have been sent there in the first place. My ears would be sorted by now.

    Having a play with these small Yamahas, the NS-BP200. They seem to be defying the laws of physics - incredible sounds emanating from them.

    Today I have mainly been listening to Kef Cresta 10. A very underrated bookshelf speaker that received a poor review from WHF. Subsequently, Richer Sounds knocked them out for 60 but soon reinstated their RRP after very happy owners reported they were excellent speakers. With Kef drivers installed, a third order crossover (whatever that means) and a classic, no frills bass reflex design, hard to go wrong really.

    Using an old Sony CDP-390, Exposure 1010 amp and John Blue JB3 as my work setup.
    I have a Rock and I'm not afraid to use it.
