You’re right, I think it was very off for @anon5266188 to make a silly joke


My speaker game is all over the shop, tbqfh. Sonos downstairs, non-Sonos soundbar for the telly, new active monitors upstairs on my desk. Shambles.

If you took those speakers to a hotel and turned them up fully you’d probably



Bercow is the “speaker” of the “house” and you are looking for “speakers” for your “house”

Can’t you see the irony here!


Any Bluetooth recs for around £100 also? Just to do a sneaky thread-jack

B Richard Onslow, 1st Baron Onslow PC (23 June 1654 – 5 December 1717), known as Sir Richard Onslow, 2nd Baronet from 1688 until 1716, was a British Whig politician who sat in the English and British House of Commons from 1679 to 1715. He was Speaker of the House of Commons from 1708 to 1710 and Chancellor of the Exchequer from 1714 to 1715. Onslow was a very unpopular figure amongst members of both political parties, particularly during his time as Speaker. He was extremely pedantic and showed an absolute devotion to principle, as a result he was given the nickname “Stiff Dick”

Don’t really use speakers much, more of a headphone guy

This thread seems to have caused some DIVISION between us!!!


j̶a̶c̶k̶ ̶a̶w̶a̶y̶!̶

i mean, feel free to discuss any (hi-fi/tv/laptop) speaker-related issues!

headphone chat is welcome, what “cans” are you “styling”

Might start saying “I love jacking it” and it’ll be about headphone jacks instead of masturbation

wireless = LINDY BNX-60

Headphones Sennheiser HD25 SPII. Had them since 2011 and they’re boss. Only had to replace the cable once. Huge VFM.

Speakers are some Cambridge Audio ones from the mid 70s, permanently borrowed from my father in law. They’re good, for what I need.

Mainly use a Bose Soundlink mini 2 around the house though. That thing is amazing.
