Re: Unsane

Thanks for that one Bretty!


All I can say really is a bit too dark for me and thank goodness I have no hangover this morning!


As they say one man's poison and all that....

Hi Johnny


Bit of topic here but I have just been checking out your system, how does it all sound? I once read about a very similar system.


Cheers Yes

Re: Unsane

Hi Gel ( Soz Bretty for hijacking your thread)


I take it you mean the Pio - Monitor Audio set up?


 Hmm to be honest the Mighty Mission set up completely blows it away even with the Sony budget amp.. Let's be honest here horses for courses and all that the MA package is much easier on the eye (as I keep getting reminded!) but I can't help thinking that the B & W or Tannoy revolution theatre package would have provided the soundstage I prefer.


I have just put the Sony 550 BDP  with the rest of the Sony equipment   and now ponder on a new Blu ray player for the Pio and MA set up


 


Cheers


Bretty I promise I will give Unsane another trial!

I have all their stuff and saw them live a few years ago - excellent band! They make a huge sound for a three piece. The guitarist / singer, Chris Spencer is brother of Jon Spencer (of Jon Spencer's Blues Explosion)
My favourite album is Scattered, Smothered and Covered. Superb.
