Just sold my Epos ES30s

Sort of sad to see a pair of loudspeakers go that I have been listening to and enjoying for around 10 years. Strangely, looking back, it seems I change speakers around every decade.
The Epos’ have a wonderful way of communicating music but having recently had the Neat MF7s here for a month or so the ES30s just had to go.
Next week, hopefully, a pair of MF9s will be arriving – In fact Bob Surgeoner the man behind Neat Acoustics is bringing them and maybe I can persuade him to help carry then up the two flights of stairs. I’ll report on the Neats as soon as they have had a few days to run in.
At the moment I’m using a pair of stand-mounting ALR Note 3s on Slate stands. Rather missing the scale and weight of the Neat MF7s but the ALRs aren’t too shabby as they say.
The Note’s have mass adjustable Auxilliary Bass Radiators (ABRs) and setting the right tuning point for the bass has given me a speaker with a good bass entension but far more importantly excellent timing.

Radio Paradise

I’ve become a bit obsessed with Internet radio station Radio Paradise www.radioparadise.com recently.
It seems to be a smallish operation, almost family run. What they do well besides play great music is have style.
Go visit their website and have a look around. See how the playlist links so well to Amazon in whichever country flavour you fancy.
It’s a listener supported station, so no ads, but of course that means they are looking for contributions from listeners.
The music is mainly what the music industry used to call Adult Orientated Rock by the way.
I have to say that I like almost everything they play even though I haven’t heard more than 50% before.

And did I tell you about the 128k AAC and 192k mp3 streams as well as the standard 128k mp3.

I prefer the sound of the 128k AAC stream – it’s remarkably good sound quality for a internet radio station.
