Maybe it was just a coincidence?
Anecdotally, up until I wrote that post above, I didn't even know how to spell 'Philippines'

Ps also, it was literally the next day, when the ads started appearing.

Re: Bass Lessons Melbourne 'Player Profile' Podcast! *JONATHAN MARON - GROOVE COLLECTIVE/MAXWELL!*

I really enjoyed this too - never heard of him, but spent yesterday afternoon listening to Maxwell.
The jam you guys had was great too - he's got a sense of melody that reminds me a bit of Me'shell.

Re: I desperately need help with technique and don't know where to begin

... Going to spend some time working out a daily 'game plan' that involves technique practice this weekend that I can realistically achieve on a daily basis.

Re: Home Entertainment setup

Hey guys, thanks very much - yeah I should have stated Bluetooth is a must, not probably. So the thing I struggle with is if I look to buy a set of Bose outdoor speakers, they start at $500 a pair and range way up - and I'm not sure these are going to be loud enough. Again Sonos speakers seem hell ...

Re: Home Entertainment setup

That's my point though, OP asked for Bluetooth, any device with the audio source being Bluetooth has the same issue, and I can't get along with it. Of course I moved to streaming, the source being internet audio stream, and am much happier now. The device as you say just controls it, and many can c...

Re: Home Entertainment setup

the problem with any mobile device streaming music is the facebook pops and email notifications coming through the speakers. ... This is not strictly correct - it's true if you are streaming from a mobile device via bluetooth . In the case of the Sonos/Bose gear, they have built in streaming music ...

Re: Home Entertainment setup

I picked Bose for Bluetooth, but it's not ideal for me, too many interruptions any time the phone plays something or opens an app that uses audio, and only one controller. I bit the bullet and got Spotify. I should have gone sonos with hindsight. I had Spotify before I got Bose, I got the supercede...

Re: Home Entertainment setup

I've gone the bose/sonos route and haven't looked back. Simplicity that can't be beat if the user is in any way iPhone etc savvy. +1 I would be looking for as many built-in clients for popular streaming services as you can get (spotify, itunes, pandora, deezer etc etc) I have a Bose Soundtouch 30 (...

Re: Sneaky's random builds log

Do the Delano quads let you do a P (split humbucker) configuration? It wasn't clear from their site From memory there was about 3-4 different combinations with single cool, series and parallel. I might still have the instructions that came with the quad coils, or I'll ask Tom the local distributor....

Re: I desperately need help with technique and don't know where to begin

Seconding maxgroovers excellent advice, I would also recommend you record yourself. If you can go direct into a computer or software that can visually analyse your levels that would make it easier, but even if you just do it on your phone and listen back you should get a good idea. The outcome being...
