The right channel on my amp has gone and the left is intermittent.

An audiophile’s nightmare.

Mind you it is 18 years old and has done a lot of hours.

A fine old 150w per channel NAD, which I can no way replace, get a new passport and plan a trip to The Dam!
UPDATE: got it back from repairs last week, which set me back a whopping £225, but it was obviously not very well and required a lot of work, new capacitors and various bits and bobs, but it sounds great - good as new and great to have choons back! :thumbup:

These days all the vinyl and CDs are gone. I stream 320kbs Spotify from an iPhone, via the TV (!) through the NAD into B&W S603s and honestly, am constantly amazed at how good it sounds. Almost like having Nicola Benedetti in the room! :shock:

I gave a cautious listen to a new album by YES. Been listening to them since the early 70s (they peaked in 73!!).

Called Mirror to the Sky, it’s actually not bad at all, although the guitar is way too high in the mix, not surprising as the producer is Steve Howe.

Last night it was Mahler 9, conducted by Rattle

The night before it was Piper at the Gates of Dawn
Now there’s an album that’s as mad as a box of frogs, with the weirdest almost binaural mix

Tonight it’s Mahler 7 Concertgebouw conducted by Bernard Hitink. Gorgeous recording on Phillips.

Dutch label and Amsterdam orchestra, but that’s just coincidence! :wink:

Currently listening to the 2018 remix of Animals, Pink Floyd (1977) and it’s like hearing it for the first time. Dunno what they’ve done to it! Remarkable :clap:

Just listened to it again.

Definitely one of my favourite recordings at the moment :thumbup:
