    I just bit the bullet and bought the Fellow one partly motivated by Square Mile moving to longer / flatter letter box friendly bags that are not so friendly in the kitchen.

    Bit spendy but it's a nice thing. I imagine in reality anything airtight will do a reasonable job if you get through the coffee at a reasonable rate.

    I like the look of the Cambridge stuff, they seem to be doing the streaming boxes right in terms of going back and updating the firmware to maintain parity for the older devices too which I think is important, we're starting to get to the point where you can see the manufacturers who will go back and support products at least in the medium term and those that don't - KEF <_<

    I never use the Naim app, there are people that like it but for me, I'm always going to want to
    use the native applications for the services so the Spotify Connect, Chromecast, and 'coming soon' Tidal Connect stuff is important.

    I'm looking forward to starting a new playthrough of DE with the full voice acting, such a great game.

    In coffee I didn't make myself news, made it out to Bon, Browns of Brokley's new spot in Dulwich this morning - pretty ace. There's a pretty great bunch of coffee spots in Dulwich now; Lane Eight, Oru, Bon all distinctly better than your run of the mill.

    Yeah, I currently have Nier Automata downloading from game pass - the value proposition is pretty mad even if you only play pretty casually.

    The Topping stuff I think is genuinely a bit ground breaking, which is great to see.

    I am currently loving the WFH benefits of having a chair on wheels - I've recently found the sweet spot for my atom / focal setup (in a small room) was not far from my previous listening position but is a lot better. Makes me wonder about what I'm missing from the LS50w if I tinkered a bit...

    There are tons of bad vinyl pressings in the world and poor-sounding digital recordings. Who gives a shit, at the point you're spending as much time and money as people in this thread are, all that matters is you like what you hear and the way it gets to you.

    I mean that in terms of anyone rubbishing format A or format B - I bet all your cables suck . . .

    Apparently there is a difference between them that, that's fucking lovely

    I'll buy one when I see it in the form factor I want and the right price, so possibly never. I think you're on the right track (I also have ~4 tapes)! Can't imagine there's much difference between them really.
