Pet and System Pics

Legend has it that children’s toy Meccano came in 2 versions, ‘Box Standard’ and ‘Box De Luxe’, one being ‘economy’ and the other top of the range. The first got mangled into the modern phrase ‘bog standard’ while the second became ‘dog’s bollocks’, with much the same meanings.

Others will doubtless let us know whether or not it is true.

Sorry i don’t follow. Still can’t understand a thing.

When Paul says ‘not quite the dogs’, I assume he means ‘not quite the dog’s bollocks’, or not the most extreme and ultimate example. If that is not what was meant, I am sure others here will tell us.

Apparently, I should know better than to take off Joni Mitchell when the record finishes, and putting on Primus is about to get me reported to the RSPCA.

how do your conf 20’s sound with the Vitus amp? I’ve got the 20’s also on a 282/250 dr system and feel I’d like to simplify the box count but also have never completely warmed to these speakers.

Hi Benjy

These things are very room dependent of course. I find the 20’s excellent in most respects. With the RI-100 the system is perhaps a tad lacking in vitality. I’m in the process of upgrading to an RI-101.2 which should help in that respect.

What is that causes your reservations?

Hello friend, thank you for your kind words.
It’s handmade by my cousin.
It’s made under the Burmester rack standards but much less expensive.
It is made of beech tree painted in mate white lacquer & aluminum painted in mate black.
I just added a metallic naim decal for aesthetic purposes.
You can search in the “system pictures” thread for more photos.

Much appreciated Vaggoz
