FM Performance Tecsun PL-398MP DSP VS PL600 Radios

FM Performance Tecsun PL-398MP DSP VS PL600 Radios

The most difference in signals seem to be Kiss 100.0 London comes in far better on the  PL-398MP and KMFM 101.6 which just has Classic FM on 101.5 over it on the other radio.
However the PL600 has better audio from better speaker but is only mono.

You also really need a car to get around if you go to this site as its right in the sticks.
Our caravan had freesat this time and a 19 inch TV and heating.

My 7.1 Home Cinema Set Up Replaced TEAC ADG 200 With Denon AVR-1910 AMP



Mine right now is

LG PK350 50 inch 1080P Plasma
A used Denon AVR-1910 amp but its a lovely sounding amp.
Very musical think I even like it more than my stereo one which is a NAD C370.
The NAD C370 seems quite boring now where as the Denon AVR-1910 I seem to here more detail in any music.
Speakers

NAD C370 uses Wharfedale XARUS5000

And my 7.1 set up is kef carina 2 4 speakers , KEF Cresta Centre Speaker SP3322 which seems decent to me.
The back surrounds are JVC SP-E5 which don't have no bass response but is fine for back surround effects.
Sub is an epos els and a SONY SA-WP890 for a bit extra.

I have had

Sony HT-DDW890
Pioneer VSX 817
TEAC ADG 200

And the AVR-1910 is the best I have heard yet.


I use a Sony RDR-HXD890 for PVR and an 80GB Fat PS3 for Blu Ray.
For downloads I just connect my PC.

As you can see 103.7 is very hard to pick up.
And there is also a French station on here to.
101.2 seems much better here.  
But this does some times get interference from Sky Radio.

I much prefer to use TuneIn though.

Unboxing OXI-OVAL UHF Indoor TV Antenna Aerial And Review Video

Unboxing OXI-OVAL UHF Indoor TV Antenna Aerial And Review Video

 

http://www.therange.co.uk/oxigold-uhf-indoor-tv-antenna-aerial/electrical-accessories/the-range/fcp-product/48342

From The Range
This seems to be a really good aerial.
Its picking up singals from Sudbury freeview DVBT TV really well and Clacton is not a great place for freeview TV signal.
By the window its getting at least 75% on all muxs.
And is working much better than the old aerial on the roof which does not pick up channels 58 and 60.
I don't need that massive one up any more out side which was by the window before that os on the old video.  

Its also getting some signal from Bluebell Hill from Kent.
Though this does need to be plugged In.
