      Surely the ‘Wither’s Eroticism Level’ should be known as ‘Wither’s Erockicism Level’?

      The Monitor Audios sound like a bargain.

      I’d love a group test/guide for people looking to step up to “proper” home cinema, the first step up from soundbars and own-brand HTIB kits. What does £500 get you in terms of a budget AVR and speakers?

      Didn't realise how significant this run was when I watched it yesterday.
      Original Mustang BULLITT - Goodwood Festival...


      Had a Puma, superb car with the 1.7. Had to have the rusty rear arches fixed. Well cheap too.
      Also had an original Focus back in 2000. Also one of the best cars I've had, so much fun to drive.

      Pretty sure Ed's reviewed the Monitor Audio MONITOR 50's rather than the Monitor Audio Studio (of which there is no '50')...being picky I know, sorry! But there's quite a price difference between the two!

      Sorry Lads this was a boring podcast, i hate sport and cars which have nothing to do with AV. Yes you were discussing HLG within sport but the podcast need to be shortened 30-40mins seem to be getting longer. Probably a quiet time for movies,hardware but just stick to AV.

      you can always jump the sections you are not interested in as there is a running order

      The natural witty banter and the occasional off topic discussion is what makes this the entertaining fun and informative listen that it is...…..My 2 cents of course

      ^^ general question.. I assume there's a technical issue to prevent podcasts having chapter markers ? I've never seen them but think they would be really useful sometimes.

      PS Thanks for this week's banter !

      Great Podcast. Missed Steve.

      Really enjoy listening to Cas insights into Movies and he can do that without spoilers. That is a skill in itself.

      1 minor criticism- the microphone Cas is using seems to be sibilant and harsh sounding. Painful.

      @Spike_UK thanks for that, fascinating to watch and the costs would make a reel to reel follower spit their coffee out. I had heard of the anamorphic LD phase towards the end, but wasn't aware of MUSE at all.

      Yeah Techmoan's videos on Hi-Vision were excellent. Well worth a watch. Also it's crazy how much that stuff is selling for on eBay.

      Glad you enjoyed it Phil.
      Techmoan has lots of interesting tech videos, and some amusing puppet skits!

      There's been quite a lot of high-end AV recently, so personally I was fine with this podcast rambling a bit, including Mark's traveliing on the No. 16 bus: "As it hits the potholes and your head hits the ceiling .." :) I almost didn't notice that my man Mr Steve Withers was absent.
