But the real thrill comes from using it day to day. Compared to what was available before, you ought to be canonized for the LPE-2! St John, it has a nice ring As far as I am concerned, your products are the very best of their kind. They amaze me every day. He was really satisfied by the sound of the unit. Millennia media HV3 - a clear winner in almost every way - this one is very smooth across the entire freq range, yet retains an amazing clarity in the upper end, bottom end is tight and controlled - wish i had 8 channels of this stuff.
It has an instrument di that is switchable between tube or solid-state, with an input transformer that may be in or out of the signal input path, is switchable between solid state or tube mic pres, again with a transformer that can be in or out of the input path, a four band parametric Eq that is also switchable between tube or solid state topology and an OPTO my favorite type compressor that again is switchable between tube or solid state. It may be employed with any of the sections together or individually. The thing is built like a tank, looks and sounds great! Best bang for the buck IMO!
Kurt Foster. I received a special matched pair of Millennia Origins in the morning and I feel like in a sound paradise now! It is exactly the type of sound I have been searching for so long time, being a bit restless in spite of all my present equipment Schoeps, Neumann, DACS, Apogee etc. Now finally I have it - that beautiful sweet, mellow sound with so many varieties! My U87 became immediately a big friend with Origins and the vocals sound great. Guitar, violin, flutes and other instruments in stereo array with Schoeps sound so pure, sweet and spacey. I especially love the tube preamp M-2B with the transformer engaged sometimes.
Should receive Telefunkens and Mullard tubes soon, very curious about the difference. Really a happy day and hopefully many happy days yet to come It was preceded by maybe two months of communication with Millennia and John La Grou - and he was so kind to me, answering all possible questions and being extremely helpful. I Sedlacek. On an interesting note: just after I got your package a client was in my studio and had just talked to a very good friend of mine, a Nashville producer, Don Potter. Apparently there's talk around town in Nashville giving it glowing marks!
Well his eyes popped out of his head when he saw that I had one in my studio. He went out and got one right away after that. It's interesting how the buzz on great gear travels. Actually I wanted to do the comparison the last 3 days on the weekend, but the german G, M, G distributor didn't manage it, to send me the G in time. The results were very good: Trumpet with Beyer M was smooth and never sharp. Fluegelhorn sounded great with a Neumann KM84 - full and warm, the best sound ever I heard with that instrument! Baritone sounded very real with a Neumann U89, where I could imagine the G could be better because it is often described as a little brighter.
The same with Tuba and an old U But in the mix, the tone of Baritone and Tuba was just right, easy to integrate it in the mix. By direct comparison with Soundcraft K3 preamps it was very obvious the Millennia is far, far better - no surprise. And the Millennia was again so convincing to me. I am in awe! That pre-amp has a sound like none other I've heard. I am currently in the process of doing a CD and building a studio with my long time friend and collaborator and believe me, when the CD hits the Top , we'll be able to afford and outfit the studio with Millennia.
Things are hopping along for us here at Benchmark. The DAC1 is still selling like hotcakes I know I can speak for my father and myself when I say that your products are among the highest quality products that exist. We have had a number of people say that between their Millennia pres and their Benchmark converters they have a combo that can't be beaten. Happy Holidays! John, The STT-1 is fantastic! Incredibly rich and present sounding. He's Switzerland's biggest mastering engineer and he loves the TCL Yesterday I visited him and he told me again that on nearly every mastering job he uses the TCL Dear John, a couple of experienced recording engineers here in DC thought my combination of Schoeps mb tube mic and Millennia preamp was the greatest front end they had ever heard.
Regards Steve Cormier. Dear John, We had a terrific power failure the other night and i suspect that one of the NSEQ tubes or output amps got fried. Sincerely Kevin Killen. I love the TD-1 by the way and have been using it a lot. On the new Knopfler album we are ignoring the bass players rack of great outboard gear and using the TD-1 instead. I've used the TD-1 mic pre and found it to be outstanding, and I've used it to reamp the bass DI on an album I mixed for a group called Sugarland.
Good stuff. Chuck Ainlay. I will be working on a new movie with Thomas Newman. I love these units, everywhere I go people are impressed. Even Armin Steiner loved them, and he uses no outboard equipment. Anyway thanks again, Tommy Vicari.
Artists / Clients
I've had a few opportunity to work with your HV-3 Preamplifier, and I liked it so much that I now think of buying a few channels. Thanks for your help and for building great products! I am a huge fan! I am the proud owner of an HV-3D 8. See what I say on my web site under "gear". It is the first time that I have ever been able to hear such a blatant improvement over other systems. I use for everything from soft acoustic instruments to triple stack amps and it always amazes me.
Thanks lots, Don Moore. I have to say I am blown away. Your TD-1 preamp is my favorite on acoustic guitars and with the added Reamping, DI capabilities and the Speaker Soak I believe this is the ultimate weapon. You can see some of my recording credits at All Music Guide. I appreciate your time and again great work. Dan Warner. Dear John, I have a crash requirement for an eight-channel microphone preamplifer for use in the Glyndebourne opera house here in England. As you know, we've already got two four-channel preamplifiers in use there and they've proved to be technically superb and completely reliable.
And on a side note, there was a preamp shoot out in Tampa some months ago I was unable to attend but the engineer I work for thought the Millennia pre he never said which model won out over J, U, P, a Neve, and an A maybe a few others I can't recall just now. He owns a blackface two channel EQ of yours I'm terrible with Model 's that I haven't played with yet. That does it, keep up the good work. I finally got a new STT-1, and I suppose there's a million good things I could say about it, but in a nutshell, I'm really impressed in how it offers shades of transparent sound.
There's nothing like a clean preamp. And they have more gain than a Marshall factory. I could go on and on Didn't think I'd be using TD-1 as much as I do. Using it on the way in on bass and then inserted as Eq on mixdown. Used the mic pre for acoustic guitar for the first time today. Very nice indeed. The Origin has tied all the loose ends of our recording projects.
It is one of the most amazing and valuable tools that we have. Can't say enough. Thank you so much. All my very best. Frank Bevans. What a swiss army knife. Also we mastered at capital and they use one of your stereo Eqs. Phil Shenale.

Congratulations on your TEC award nomination. I love the TD The only thing that could make him happier is a pair. Take care, Doug Cronin, Harborsound. When it comes to that hard to describe concept that we call "air" nothing can touch the TD1 - it sounds as if the world's best EQ was used to boost just the right frequencies to really open up both the source and the room sound.

Based on last night's session, I would never call the TD1 "accurate", it's much more of a flattering preamp. Hollywood Steve. The EQ is great.

John, I'm in the UK now working on a Tori Amos record, thought you'd like to know that they've bought two STT-1's per my suggestion and are using it on her voice as well as my bass.
Take care and thanks again. John Evans. He really loves the vocal sound he's been getting. Linda Albright Ears Audio Nashville. I have found the NSEQ2 to be a fantastic EQ, every bit as good as I had expected after reading numerous reviews and taking much advice from other mastering engineers. As I am sure you have heard all of these things many times before, there is no need for me to go into detail, other than to say I'm a big fan of the unit, and in turn of Millennia Media. I am blown away john!!! I am getting money together and it looks like I'll buy all of the demo gear.
I would be insane not to. I am very inspired, I really have no words for it. I deeply appreciate what you do!! The TD-1 is everything I hoped it would be. My first Millennia purchase and definitely not my last. White, SF, CA. I still do not know what exactly to say to you. These things [TD-1] are so severely incredible! I'm doing a lot of re-racking etc Gregory Bruce Campbell,.
I am very impressed with this [NSEQ-2] unit! I wish that I would have known about your products sooner. I could have been using them for all kinds of projects. It's like sending my studio to the audio dentist we got everything cleaned up. The quality and clarity of both pre-amp sections is truly stunning, especially for voiceovers. It yields thoroughly detailed results on every instrument tracked, with the EQ and Compressor sections proving invaluable and highly musical.
I will be purchasing another one in the not to distant future for that stereo front end. Yours sincerely, Gareth Prosser. We attended Parsons' expo last Thursday a very enjoyable event! To find out how the pre-amps performed in live recording we hired the HV-3 and used it on Saturday night to record the New Hampshire Symphony Orchestra performance.
The results are stunning! The Millennia is definitely our pre-amp of choice. Regards, Joanna Duncan. The TD-1 was an excellent tool for the bass strings review. It offered the transparency and fidelity we were looking for, and everyone was thoroughly pleased with its tone and versatility. So much so, in fact, that I'd like to discuss a long-term vision with you. I'm currently re-working Bass Player's reference rig, and I'd like to include the TD-1 as our reference preamp. I am about to begin recording a new album with the artist Everclear our 4th album together I have also worked extensively with Producer John Shanks, engineering for him on Michelle Branch's multi-platinum CD release The Spirit Room with a single Millennia HV-3 -- which we used on every single vocal track and acoustic instrument!
I signed a contract to do this CD album The Millennia sounds lovely I now know what some of the forum posters meant by the dilemma of so many choices. What a treat! First off I would like to thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to try the TD I absolutely love it. The warmth and drive of the piece blows my mind. What's more is the fact that it has such huge head room. My compressor is just sitting collecting dust because the fact is, I don't need to use it. We don't have any more of your gear here because I sold it all within the last month.
I mean every customer that asks me for a recommendation as to what pre-amp they should get, it's always the same, 'Millennia TD-1, I have it, it's incredible, trust me you'll thank me for it. Thanks again, Daniel. Critical Acoustic Music Recording. Research, Sampling, Institutional. I've been addicted to the Millennia sound since my earliest days, back when I ran sound at the Knitting Factory in NY.

Source typically spanish. Spanish police found a huge kg haul buried in a lorryload of Dutch flowers on Wednesday in the Basque Country town of Durango, in Vizcaya. Swift work by officers from the National Police and the Guardia Civil prevented more than , doses of amphetamine sulphate reaching the market. The drug was hidden in a flower shipment, organised by a company run by a Dutch national, living in Burgos. His fleet of trucks were apparently making regular trips.
The shipping company owner is thought to be responsible for contracting the shipment of drugs, which were destined for the north of Spain - the Basque Country and Navarra in particular. They continued following the vehicle to Durango, where he and another person in the truck were arrested after a search of the vehicle revealed four suitcases containing a total of kg of speed.

The Danish toymaker had tried to have its snap-together plastic bricks registered as an exclusive trademark in the European Union.

The end of the summer festival season is also cited, because the acts and artistes involved find it the best time to throw themselves into writing, recording and promoting. Underworld, Weezer and Skunk Anansie were big news 14 years ago. All three acts had hit albums in the late Nineties, and all have been on the back-burner since. The panic that ensued back then seems a little overexcited now. CD burners were a new thing, and everyone thought the RockStar era was over.

During the Sixties, Band of Joy were a popular soul-andblues band around the Midlands, particularly followed by the Mods. His heady days of Led Zepp seem to be behind him as he returns to his roots. John Bonham was an early member of the band before fol-. Chester Thompson, his friend and a world-famous drummer, was lined up to put down the drum parts in the studio. However, with drumsticks taped to his hands, Collins managed to play the instrument on every track.
Robert Plant returns, 40 years on, to the Band of Joy without his original drummer. His interpretations of midFifties Blue Grass and Country blues classics take. He is unlikely to recreate the furore of his Zepp days, with Stairway to Heaven still in the top played radio songs of all time. It was, incidentally, released as a single despite the urban myth. At an un-radio-friendly eight minutes long, It remains the most requested US FM Radio station song ever, marking the West Brom boy the most famous of their famous sons. It is now in force all over the European Union, and the form can be filled in irrespective of the language or nationality of the people involved.
Normally, there are two carbon copies, but sometimes three. It is always recommended that you to use this application form in case of small damages, with no injuries or non-serious one. By using a Friendly Statement, The incident could be resolved much quicker than other cases especially if there is a court case , and it helps the insurance companies involved. Although it has been applicable for such a long tine, many insurance companies say there are large numbers of people who do not know how to handle it.
In most of the cases, the errors committed are so simple, like not signing the Statement, not filling in all the boxes, or the lack of a detailed sketch. If the people involved in the accident decide to use the Friendly Statement, there would be a couple of things for them to bear in mind. First of all, they should try to avoid interrupting the traffic if possible and, before moving the cars, they should take pictures of them. Nowadays, everybody seems to have a mobile phone with a photo camera, and the drivers involved should photograph the street, and any tyre marks or damage to the cars.
Experience shows that to argue with the other driver about the responsibility or culpability is a waste of time. This task is reserved for the insurance companies and, basically, because the Part of Accident does not require this information. Initial steps After immobilising the vehicles, both parties should start filling in the statement with details like date and hour, number plates, names, insurance companies, etc. They should also sketch the damaged parts of the car and, if possible, show the direction and movements of the cars, stating names of the streets and adding telephone.
The names and telephone numbers of any witnesses should also be taken, in case they are needed later. That is why is very important to take all the information possible. Without the two signatures the statement is not valid. Remember that any person involved in an accident has legal obligations, like stopping without causing dangerous to.
Remember, also, that it is a serious offence not to give the Traffic Law agents of authority the identity and details they request. You then send the statement to the insurance companies, who will certainly do their best to find an amicable arrangement. Finally, you can download from internet the European Part of Accident.
When to call the police There are many cases when police intervention is necessary, among them:. Phone: 79 44 Letters to Mariano I have received a photograph of my car with a fine for exceeding the speed limit. I was not driving it that day. Is that legal? This is legal. If you were not driving, you would not be responsible for the fine.
You can do the proper allegations, stating that you were not the driver. If you do not do that, you can be fined through the lack of identification. As it is your vehicle, you are supposed to have control of it all the time, even when someone else is driving it. Do not forget to ask for legal advice especially if your insurance company covers legal aid. Wrought-iron furniture has just the right mettle ONE of the most common problems for rental complexes is the durability of furniture, and the time invested in cleaning and maintaining properties.
After all, time is money for management companies, and downtime must be kept to a minimum - not only for them, but for the owners of the properties as well. One of our clients, the Pueblo Torviscas complex, is, understandably, very popular because of its fabulous location, near some of the best beaches in Tenerife.
Many of the clients are families, often with young children, and this type of client, together with the close proximity to the beach, means that furniture is often subjected to heavy usage, including sun cream and sand! The furniture must obviously be strong enough to withstand constant usage, and also be produced within the available budget. Wrought-iron furniture is sometimes an option that people do not consider because they see it as a bit old fashioned, and it often tends to be associated with ornate designs.
However, this need not be the case, as many modern versions are now available. And, as a material, it does. The individual items are immensely strong and, in the example shown in the photo, very easy to keep clean, particularly as the design is modern, with straight, clean lines. The frames can be cleaned by wiping down with a mild soap solution, and the cush-.
As part of the annual maintenance programme, the frames can be repainted if necessary. In this example, the tiles on the table top have been coordinated with the kitchen tiles, which ties the whole scheme together. The sofa bed in this case is. The base of this sofa is a sprung mattress, and by just removing the back cushions, is a proper single bed: extremely comfortable and practical. The proportions of the sofa in relation to the depth of the base and the height have been carefully considered, so that it is surprisingly comfortable as a sofa, as well as a bed.
In addition, both the mattress and the material used for the cushions and covers is fire-retardant ignifugo in Spanish and, therefore, meets all the legal requirements for rental complexes. Items in wrought iron can be made to order, so size, and even colour need not be an issue. This particular design has proved very popular and practical with both the management and the clients of Pueblo Torviscas.
Email: David. Feeling blue: A Get that garden acrobat gardening buzz again takes tumble If there is one species that is synonymous with bird feeders, it is the Blue Tit. Colourful and acrobatic, the sight of a. Blue Tit foraging busily in a garden would be a thing of wonder were it not for its apparent ubiquity. But ubiquitous it is not, falling from an average weekly count of 5.
After a meteoric rise in the first 30 years of the survey, numbers of Collared Doves have also fallen, down by more than a quarter in the past 10 years. However, it is not all bad news. Fuelled by seed and sunflower hearts, Goldfinch. Four times as many Great Spotted Woodpeckers now dart into GBFS gardens than at the start of the survey, hammering and probing their bills into a wide variety of foods. In gardens, changes in bird feeding could be responsible; where once the supple dexterity of the Blue Tit would have been.
It is the longest running survey of its kind in the world and has only been made possible through the dedicated observations of hundreds of UK householders who participate voluntarily. With urbanisation and the development of new bird care products continuing apace, the importance of the GBFS will continue to grow. I used to have one in my garden, it was gorgeous and wildlife loved it but it just grew too quickly and overtook the whole plot. The compact plants will be smothered in flowers all summer long and will grow to just three feet one metre high. If you live here in the Canaries you can order seeds on-line and they will post them to you — how brilliant.
If any of you have used this service I would love to hear from you to see how you got on. Got to get it right! Yes, it's short, but versatile, too, she can lower the fringe to give herself some softness, dependant on her dress. Look at what they do, what their hair does for their face, eyes, skin tone, etc. Her oval face would suit any style, and the colour really goes well with her blue eyes. Dannii Minogue: A real hair star.
She always gets it right, from just simple slicked-back to hair-ups and even wigs. Dannii is a hair chameleon, never afraid of experimenting, and I only wish there were more women like. From mere sexy and chic, to other times edgy and rock chick. Her colour is blonde, but not overly done. Her choppy layers give her lots of scope to create different styles, while her length gives her youthful face a sexy approach.
Kim Wyatt: Ice Princess. The darker colours complement her skin tone, and on her face shape oval , she can more or less get away with anything. Dita Von Teese: Naturally a blonde, but she works this darker colour so well. But she does this shade proud. Trust your hairdressers, and their years of training.
