|Oh the joys of the signals news bulletins. Endless updates on product shortages and price rises. The stream of consciousness outpourings of a troubled soul.
It’s become so all consuming that we’ve managed to let two years worth of April Fools Days pass without a spoof posting of some sort. We really must try to re-engage with the lighter side of our business. Perhaps if we watch fewer news programmes and imbibe more alcohol.
News was promised, though, so best I start by telling you that we’re closed for Easter. It’s just one day off (Saturday) with Good Friday and Easter Monday being bank holidays and one of them a day we don’t work anyway. There’s a suitably apologetic message on door and answering machine.
Our financial year is in line with the fiscal one and drew to a close at the end of March. It actually turned out to be another ‘robust’ year, even if it didn’t always feel that way. Thanks, as ever to our customers.
The last month has seen us having various flurries of activity, including two electrically powered trips to Oxfordshire that worked astonishingly well.
Finally, our Naim Ovator 800 owning customer in that neck of the woods has been cajoled into using a trio of NAP 500 DRs to drive them. With the statement pre already there, a brace of turntables; two Linns and a Solstice, CD555, ND555 and a radio tuner, the greatest issue is lack of input sockets.
But, my word, it sounds great.
