If the signal from the local transmitter is as strong as you've suggested then any losses going through the sky box (FR in to RF2 out) won't be significant. Don't mess about with fancy aerial disti...

If the magnet doesn't stick then it's not steel; well not unless it's stainless, but that would be unusual. The other possibility is copper coated aluminium. Try filing some of the outer to see...

You really don't get it, do you. Ho hum.

Even the hands on a stopped clock are right twice a day. You appear to be confusing the lowest common denominator with some kind of validation. Oh dear. ...

Ohww... Da-a-ad

I thought you liked these little tête-à-têtes. You seemed most disappointed when I called time a couple of days ago. You do realise, I'm only doing this for your benefit ;-) ha ha ha

Well that's hardly a surprising conclusion. I'd be rather disappointed in any system that couldn't make the differences clear.

Once again though you're focussing on the small subset of recorded...

First, (BIB) Why do you have a problem with other people expressing their opinion? Most odd that; especially as this is a forum and that's exactly its reason d'etre.

Anyway, back on track, I'm sure...

Oh, hang on then, you're saying that the builder is putting in RG6 for the Sky dish?

RG6 uses a steel core and aluminium foil, so it has a much higher DC resistance than an all copper cable...

TBH I wouldn't bother trying to find a loft box with a dedicated input for the RF2 returns separate to the regular aerial feed. Chances are that if you find one then it will also come with loads of...

If the aim is still to have an audiophile system, then the sort of new Blu-ray player in a price range that would fit here will suck as a main source for CD. Quite frankly it would be just as good if...

A car is legal to own and operate. But speeding is an offence. So are cars legal or not? ..... That's an analogy for the Android boxes. The box is perfectly legal, as are several of the online...

Good shout on the ARCAM. I don't know why I'd forgotten that because I've sold and installed a few.

My only criticism is how it's classed. While there are HDMIs on the back they do nothing except...

If you're still talking about wanting audiophile quality on a budget, then a 2 channel 'purist' analogue Hi-Fi amp is the type that will achieve that most cost effectively. This is both new and...

I can see where your coming from, but I do wonder if turning Hi-Fi buying in to a tick-box exercise would ultimately be self-defeating.

By 'self defeating' that I mean that if you give people a...

White and gold, although to be fair the colour balance of the picture makes the white bits look a tad blueish. It's like the pic was taken in mixed light.
