    Why I Waited Twenty Five Years for Billie Eilish!

    Don’t panic!! This isn’t about obsession… It’s about inspiration! I’m gonna inspire you all here - and there is a lesson to be had! This is about something that we all identify with and I feel like I just have to write about it. This is about the importance of knowing what inspires you, and always being mindful of it, so that you don’t look back on life and realise that your inspiration walked right on by and you didn’t even give it a nod, you may not have even noticed. That is a day of regret.

    Definitely worth watching! A fascinating part of HiFi history from a time when anything was possible!

    This film gives a fascinating insight into how the history of British broadcasting and HiFi are inextricably linked, and how this is still very relevant today. We know times have changed - and back in the not too distant past the BBC had an almost unlimited budget to spend on design and research....

    This is our perfect playlist for a special Valentine's night in... We think it's just irresistible!

    If you’re anything like me… you enjoy a good love song, but when it comes to a Valentine’s night in, there is a fine balance between queasy cheesy and creating an ‘on-theme’ soundtrack for the evening. So I’ve been trawling through the so called ‘Best Love Songs of All Time’ lists to pick out the perfect tunes that you are gonna love!!
  6. Do you need golden ears to appreciate good HiFI? We don’t think so… and here’s why...

    Do you need golden ears to appreciate good HiFI? We don’t think so… and here’s why...

    The conundrum is that the second group know how to listen and they create equipment that they can’t fully hear, for a group of people who can hear better than them but who don’t fully listen.Clearly what we need is more younger people getting into ‘real’ HiFi because they have a skill that I would sooooooo dearly like to have again. A natural attribute that is seems shameful to waste - They have the upper 4kHz of dreams!!
