How to choose the best online casino?

This page hosts a list of online gambling sites and casinos that are not part of Gamstop. These external operators hold licences with places like Malta, Cyprus, Curacao, Gibraltar or other off-shore entities outside of the UK. Casinos that are not based in the UK should be approached with caution. These sites do not have the same level of safety as those licensed by the UKGC, as they are classified as non-Gamstop casinos. These gambling sites accept players from all over the world, including the UK, but they are not specifically targeted at British gamblers. They usually use euros as their currency rather than pounds sterling. The sole purpose of this web page is to provide feeless and straightforward self-exclusion from any gambling websites not included in Gamstop s scheme. The top list is for foreign residents living in the UK who want to play at a casino that isn t licensed by the UKGC. If you want to stop using these websites, we recommend that you manually block yourself from each casino not on the Gamstop list or explore our other self-exclusion options. For a general casino player, playing an online slot machine or live casino game for a few free spins is a great way to de-stress after work. For some people, gambling is not a casual activity--it s an addiction. Fortunately, the Gamstop scheme exists to help problem gamblers in Great Britain by allowing them to self-exclude from online casinos. If you or someone you know suffers from gambling addiction, encourage them to seek help through this program. If you re looking to gamble online, it s a smart move to sign up for Gamstop. Once you re registered, Gamstop will exclude you from all participating online gambling and casino sites. Right now, it s voluntary for casinos to register with Gamstop, so there are some that aren t included. Gamstop is a UK-based initiative, and currently, online casinos licenced in Malta, Cyprus, Curacao are not registered on Gamstop. The UKGC can’t force an individual to join the Gamstop scheme.

Euteller casinos have been the favorite gaming slots for many casino players for many years. Euteller is a service aimed at Finns, whose idea is to make it easier to pay online, and online casinos have been using this payment method for almost 15 years. Euteller casinos make use of online banking, but unlike regular bank transfers, Euteller casino is a much faster and more convenient guy for the job. One of the best things about the service is the short Euteller withdrawal duration, which is at best only a few minutes. Since Euteller is a Finnish payment method, of course the casinos that offer it are also particularly good choices for players who recognise the blue and white colour. Especially Finnish online casinos aimed exclusively at us have taken over this payment method, at least for deposits. One of the most important features of euteller-supported online casinos is that they are mostly Estonian or MGA licensed online casinos. If this didn t get your socks rolling yet, let s just say this is especially great because you can withdraw your winnings completely tax-free!

Meta Meta Meta, so what?

The Meta buzzword is everywhere these days.

The Meta Verse will be where we all live and work, on a Meta Platform, hopefully with non-meta food and drink!

For two years now Kef have used Meta to describe a leap in their technology, so what actually is it?

Kef use meta material, a material that is created with in a lab, maybe like the meta verse it shouldn't exist. 

This can be formed into complex shapes, in this case tubes, why?

Well every time a treble or midrange unit moves forward to produce sound it then has to move back again. This pushes air back into the cabinet and the resistance can restrict the drive unit's movement. Over the years companies have various solutions for thsi varying from stuffing the cabinet inside with wool or foam to extreme shapes of tapering tubes behind drive units.

Bowers & Wilkins Nautilus Loudspeaker

Yes that looks extreme but that's what the tubes are technically there for!

Meta does the same thing without you seeing it.

KEF LS50 Meta Loudspeaker Metamaterial | Hi-Fi News

This disc contains kilometres of tubes of varying thickness taking away the back pressure and allowing the drive unit to play with dramatically reduced air pressure interference. There is one behind each uniQ drive unit and so it works from 20k down to about 600Hz.

Magazines, dealers and many industry specialists don't want to talk too much about it as it is a really big deal but there is no doubt that there is a feeling that this is a game changer. This doesn't necessarily mean that any Kef Meta speaker is right for you or your system however it does mean you must have a listen before choosing anything else.

As What Hifi said 'KEF is on to something with the Metamaterial technology'

Meta technology started in the LS50 meta and is now employed in the LS50 wireless2, R3 bookelf, R%, R7, R11 floorstanders, all new Kef Reference speakers and the Blades and Blade 2.

Most of these are available for demonstration, come and check them out for yourself

 

Sonus Faber Speakers

Sonus Faber have been making speakers for a long time. Forty years in fact, which makes them almost as old as Lyric Hifi!

They have always been known for the most amazing finishes and workmanship and been likened to the Italian violin makers of old.

From unashamedly high end products there is now a range starting from very reasonable prices so let's look at a few.

The starting range is Lumina which features 2 bookshelf and 2 floorstanding speakers. Looking at the range I have chosen to stock the Lumina 1 bookshelf at £ 799 and the first floorstander the Lumina 3 at £ 1999, these are really well priced, which you don't expect from a handmade Italian company !

Sonus Faber Lumina I | Hard To Find Hi-Fi

Both have a gorgeous walnut front with the cabinet case in black.

Then when you go up to the Sonnetto range you get even more impressive cabinets and precise drive units.

There are two bookshelf models under £ 2000 and then three floorstanders that take you up to £ 5700

As usual the real woods are beautiful

While we have started with 5 models from two ranges there are more to follow as the range extends to £ 30k plus!

Lets see how it goes !
