Yes after I have been abused in insults myself and by Leif too. He seems to be very vindictive man.

This has been very entertaining indeed but the novelty has long worn off. For Christ's sake can't you just pack it in! Both of you demand the last word and it is boring and tedious... childish behaviour.

It's a simple spat on public fora, get over it! Why don't you both just shut up and give us some peace...
Agreed. Just kiss and make up now.

There is absolutely no need for anyone to leave, just grow up!

Haven't bothered reading this thread before and probably won't bother again now I know what it's like!

However I would like to say to Leif that I have just tried the trick of listening with hands cupped behind ears; wow what a difference this makes, thanks for the tip.

Is there any device out there that can reproduce this effect I wonder (not headphones) , maybe one for dragons den, but then again they would only say it had limited appeal .... and I guess they would be right. Think I might try and fashion something myself before I upgrade any other component :)

You want something like this:

Cupping my hands over my ears brings my system up to the level of headphones, if not better because of a better soundstage.
