Been listening to quite  few internet radio stations, some good, some ok-ish, some a tad boring. But with many thouands of them from which to choose, this could be a happy Winter!

Atmos if done right will be the best thing you ever experience. You are welcome to pop in for a demo.
Take you up on offer soon ;)

I've never tried Tidal, have played with Spotify but that was a while ago. I should perhaps give these services a go again and see what is all available.

I do enjoy radio with good music and a bit of interesting chit-chat between, which is one reason I have never seriously bothered with music streaming serviices, which seem lifeless without a friendly presenter presenting interesting info between the tunes.
You could try internet radio, look for one that does specific genre/s you like...especially if they make the shows available as podcast downloads.  Or via soundcloud, which is what I do.  Find DJs or record labels that do subgenres you like, follow them. Most have very little chit-chat though, just a bit about the track being a new release on [xyz] label and so on.  Some of them are actual FM radio stations, especially in London - Rinse FM and NTS Radio...and there is Redlight Radio in Amsterdam - very eclectic DJ selectors, lots of psychedelic/folk throwback stuff and reggae/dub.

Some google work to find something that suits you.

I never listen to it live, I just follow Rinse FM on soundcloud, so I usually notice the latest sets of specific DJs/shows, try them and then maybe download.  Then the chit-chat can be a problem...One DJ on Rinse, sets I liked, she chatters on and on so much, bad enough the first time, but it makes repeat plays unbearable, weeks later hearing the same prattle about the weather in London and how it makes you feel, so it got deleted.

Only just got back to this thread.  The Laikas are the ‘Crazy Frog Martion bullfrog’ rip offs that I made over a thread here.  The OBs (Madcap Dominoes) are effectively two old lab shelves with Phillips full range 6” drivers in (I did them as a quick and dirty thread too).  The Goodmans are mounted into larger old lab shelves with sandwich board style stands and have been sitting in my office unused since I moved offices so I really need to take them home.  I haven’t decided on a name for them yet!

That sounds do-able, we can run a wire with some digging up of driveway. I'm in a full-day workshop, will send you a PM later or tomorrow. If you get another taker then no need to hold for me.

I think I got a spare zx8 zone extending board lying around here for the mg5050.
