“Our research confirmed that exposure to loud auditory stimuli coupled with daily consumption of 25mg/kg of caffeine had a clear negative impact on hearing recovery"
Ummmm... I weigh 84 kg. So 2.1g of caffeine or about 26 coffees  ???

Stupid..

Pardon?
You'll have to speak up  ::)

This just tells me that (U.S.) scientists are struggling to find "research" material these days to justify receiving their grants.  :stir

Now I know why Brett won't lend me his ears for second opinion of my audio system

Lol... after what Brett has recently spent on 'modest' audio gear he can't afford to dream big or get champagne taste ideas!!

But I only want to borrow your ears so I get a professional persons opinion that has orchestra experience to judge

And you get nice coffee as well plus a KG of green beans ;)

Well I had that orchestral experience in spades recently on the QPAC stage as the so,list for Belshazzar's Feast.  It was singularly the loudest experience of my life and one of the most exhilarating.  Huge Orchestra, 2 off-stage Banda and a choir of 120 ripping me into some of the happiest shreds.  Awesome!! 

I do promise to visit but time and I aren't friends especially during term time.  I'd also like to get my own 9.1 system screaming before I audition another.  I'm hoping to run my impressive mains off a decent 8 ohm 150w/channel minimum power amp.  I'm yet to purchase the power amp because my wife is now monitoring my frittering :(

You know that unless the source is recorded in 9.1 you won't get the full affect

I have dismantled my 7.1 system and gone back to stereo with A class custom made amp
Back to Nirvana again
