RE: Glastonbury 2017 highlights
Close to the end of this evenings BBC coverage, I rather enjoyed 'Metronome - The Look'; I've never heard of Metronomy before, but they sure did get my feet tapping. Smile

KDS/1 (music) + ADSM (AV) -> KK/1 -> 350A + miniDSP time & phase aligned 345 rear sub
KDS Renew -> Homebrew fixed attenuator -> 2250/D -> 212 and Sizmik front sub (bedroom)
MDSI -> 104C (awaiting installation in my kitchen)
MDSI -> Shahinian Arc (installed at my mum's house)

Actually, I think they were perhaps just a shade better than that! I had it on really rather loud, so I'm now busy placing loads of ice packs against the backs of my 350As and all the windows are open to let the resultant steam out. Big Grin

Similar story here.

Totally agree. Nile Rogers and his bass player were superb. Sound was excellent coming through the K350a's. It was so good that when they started playing Bowie's 'Lets Dance' my wife got up and did just that AND WITHOUT a drink Rolleyes

Barry Gibb was very good as well.

It also gave me the opportunity to exclaim "now you know why I have spent so much money on Linn" Wink

Yeah! That bassist was fantastic. Nile gave him credit but can't remember his name right now. I have it in the recording though.
Extracted the audio using a movie editor and although it's only a 48/16 resampling of a lossy AAC soundtrack it still sounds wonderful through Exakt. So glad I caught it. Legendary.
And yes, Let's Dance - if that didn't get someone's foot at least tapping, they have no soul Smile

Jerry Barnes. By far the best musician I saw in the coverage over the weekend.

That's the fellow. Not only the best musician I saw but the whole set was the best. Absolutely loved it.
