My good friend Kate Hardy is blogging this morning on how Santa arrived early at her house.
Well you know how I love my music, so when our old tower hi-fi system music center was replaced I nabbed it for my office and yes it was FM radio with an extra aerial, there was a built in cassette deck and seperate amplifier but the stations were pretuned with a remote and the CD player was excellent. The speakers could have rocked the joint for any budding rock band.
Note the word ‘WAS.’
Because the day I mailed my book to my editor, it died. Actually I think a relay died, but all I had was crackle, bang bang. BANG! After a short spell in intensive care, I had to… pull the plug. [ for fear of fire]
Sigh. It had served us well for at least 16 yrs which by modern standards makes it only fit for a museum.
So thanks for all the music.
Here it is , standing in our hall, waiting to go to its final rest.
Some parts can be used – the CD player is a separate hi-fi unit- but I don’t know anyone who would want to repair it when the cost of a new system is so reasonable.
But when I think of how much all this lot cost when new… sigh.
So. Choices. I do listen to music Online – but some days [ whisper] I don’t have my PC turned on and in use all day. Separate music source required.
Mr Nina took the assignment – he had been looking for a kewl pressie and this was going to be it, and on Sat pm a nice man/ one of Santa’s human helpers/ delivered a big box from Amazon.
Welcome Robbie. DAB and FM. CD player. Multimedia chip play/record. IPod Dock. built in speakers.
The sound quality is amazing. I love it.
Tech love. Go on. You know you want to.. snigger.
And Santa Baby, the coffee is on.
