Car streaming blues, ain’t marketing great

How does solo piano help you evaluate audio gear?
I find a great test is plugging in my own keyboards (Technics P30 stage piano and Roland fp5) and it instantly exposes any weaknesses. Have a beautiful refurbed Brinsmead (great British make) upright fettled by an excellent tuner until funds stret...

Kef LS50s - great like me but need to come up for air
My LS50 Metas were very sensitive to placement and were useless in the middle of the room compared to vintage Concords and Celestes (bad placement I know I know). They’re banished to the garage where ironically they sound fab and live next to ESL5...

Who is ditching their shiny disc spinners?
My CD collection is a lifetime's work- a lot bought at concerts and workshops- having to scroll through a screen is an anathema to me- the whole world is full of zombies with earbuds staring at a little glass tablet or spending their day in front ...
