Dalliance and not a patch on: something new learned. I can get the meaning more or less by ear (and knowing Nigel). Silly is already known to me...
My 2pence are: I have little doubt that a rega Planar 2 can't compete with fine files on a high quality streaming system; that a Planar 2 is not an LP12; that I wouldn't invest significantly on vinyl equipment; that pressings cannot be relied on a priori; that I still think that listening to a song on a good cellphone with good earplugs is a very pleasant experience, more complex if it's to be duplicated on the home system; and that I'd gladly buy a Core and a Nova (the Nova made my S-400s sound very well in our room, twice underlined), but the idea of putting ads, replying to them, not getting mad at those who write, ask for answers and pics then disappear, waiting for money transfers to show up, not getting mad at the taxes my Bank imposes pickpocketing money from me, packing, securing, shipping, waiting for the simple news that the pack(s) have arrived safely (and often not even receiving them) – no, thanks, not anymore. I'd rather go for being hung or electrocuted.
But why discuss infinitely? Why aren't so many unable to enjoy what they have without the need to make comparisons and induce doubts, temptations, uncertainty?
A good weekend to all,
