Another totally absorbing review of a product I can't possibly afford, but so interesting I read it to the end then read it again...
Marantz M-CR603 • Rega R3 loudspeakers • AirPlay • Apple iPad Mini • Apple iPhone 5 • Apple iMac • Apple AirPort Extreme 802.11N • Humax HDR-Fox T2 • Panasonic TX-L32D25B • Sony BDP-S390
I'd love to listen to this Quad set-up even if just to compare it with the old Quad sound: brilliant power amps and those sweet yet murky preamps. Out of my price range too unless I take out a second mortgage...not a bad idea.
Ah, Kansas. One of my favourite bands ever...
You'd hate it Chebby. They look like this:
Cambridge Audio StreamMagic 6 | 751BD | 651A | Diamond 9.1 | Minx Xi | Sonos Play:3

I think you'll find...
...that the reference was to this (or at least that's how I read it):
'And so on February 22nd 1966, at Luton airport...'
Now we'll be told that Toto is one of John's favourite bands too.
Give these lyrics
The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless longing for some solitary company
I know that I must do what's right
As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti
I seek to cure what's deep inside, frightened of this thing that I've become
I hope not
Not the first time that it's been thought that I may be a friend of Dorothy.
Not really (though I did see them at the Shepherd's Bush Empire a few years back). The guitar solo in Rosanna is one of the greats though...
I blame them for all this blessed rain...
You could always but them on the knock Chebby >) , or sell a kidney >)
Airport express > NAD C390DD > Dali Evidence 470
Sony BDP-S790 > Pioneer vsx 922 > KEF 2005.3 > Old Sony 32" widescreen CRT
all kinds of stuff in the attic
Brilliant band, one of my favs too.
Toto,of course, featured the brilliant part-time Steely Dan drummer Jeff Porcaro, who died in a bizarre gardening accident.
(Nerd question: which stereo channel is Jeff drumming in on the Dan's 'Parker's Band', and who's the drummer in the other channel?)
Oh yes, Quad Platinums. Look very good. Hopefully will hear in Bristol, though I've usually been disappointed with the sound in the IAG room there.
Rega RP6 Groovetracer sub and counterweight/DV20X2L/Rega Aria/Naim CD5XS/Flatcap XS/NAT05XS/ND5XS/Supernait 2/Dynaudio 1.8-II & sometimes Rega RS5
Can't wait to hear if the Quads justify the 5000 pounds of investment.
Right now not seeing any of the IAG brands on the Bristol Show exhibitors list.
EDIT: Scrub that - they're on the Bristol Show site's news page, but not yet updated on the exhibitors list. As you were...
Very good write-up of the QUAD Platinum DMP and Stereo power amp in last month's HiFi World. It's been years since QUAD first said they were producing a 'Platinum' series - perhaps the time spent developing the products has paid off.
I feel this may lead to prosecution due too its illeagal status.......
