Re: Message upload hanging

Yes mine behaves similarly but almost always posts if I wait.





Yes, I've not seen a setting for a time limit on making a post per se, but session timeout is 30 mins so if I get distracted...

Re: Windows 10 Pro

Did our laptop and PC to 1803 and both are fine using Firefox. It's definitely quicker opening web sites, for whatever reason, perhaps new OS or the installation clearing some clutter etc :thumbsup:

Re: Message upload hanging

My posts sometimes hang but if I sit and wait they usually post. They sometimes time out and are lost before posting so anything long I do in open office first then copy in. So, sometimes not perfect...

Re: Windows 10 Pro

Morning all,
Ours haven't installed 1803 yet and I wondered why as we're set for auto updates.
Entered winver in the search box and they're still on 1709.
A quick google says the trigger is...

Re: SME & Garrard

This pic is dated 2009 when my friend Gerry B brought round his 401 in a solid wooden plinth for a listen and to compare cartridges. He had a new Jelco 750 arm and Denon 103R on it. My TD 160 Super...

Re: K5881 Stereo Power Amp

Yes a comparison with a MkII in your own system would be ideal.

Re: K5881 Stereo Power Amp

Hi John, are you using the AVC now? How do you find the quality and volume, does it feel as though there is enough drive? I've only heard one AVC pre which was very smooth and sweet but lacked a...

Re: WAD Kit 6550 hum

Hi JPPGWAD,

Check the transformers for any numbers or maker.
There is a thread here with some info but there may have been different suppliers or a change of design during the supply of the kits,...

Re: photobucket image retrieval

Yes a wake-up call as to the ethics of some web companies I think. I too lost my pictures and all the links went dead when Virgin deleted my web space. It was only a few MB hosting a hundred or so...

Re: Disappointing Audiolab

Hi Phil, sounds unbelievable they'd still be trying to save pennies using bad electrolyte. I wonder if they may simply be some old stock of those bad caps (slower moving large ones?) that have now...

Re: Disappointing Audiolab

Hi Phil,

Re: Disappointing Audiolab

You'll know that any electrolytic working within its rating should have lasted much longer than that Phil. The best are the likes of Panasonic FC 105 degree 5000 hours which equates to 73 years at 35...

Re: WD KT88VA XL build (steamboat)

I'm going to rebuild my WD88VA (integrated) with my favourite components (Kiwame, JJ electrolytics, Elna Silmic etc.) and with the XL upgrade.
C9a, C12a and C13a are 1.5uF. I would like to...

Re: KEL84 advice -please...

Yes indeed, as Bob says for power testing, though you can use much lower rating 7W or 10W 6R8 or 8R2 etc from Maplins for a few pence for checking through voltages after the build. Easiest way to get...

Re: KEL84 advice -please...

Yes if the voltages check ok it should be fine. Remember to connect 8 ohm resistors or old speakers to each channel before firing up without any input signal. The inputs are best shorted with shorted...

Re: Phono3S it's humming again.

Well done Andy. Almost exactly the same thing caught me out too. My Thorens is a later one with (18V?) mains transformer and I had the TX sitting on the floor right under the WD3 set up. Moving it a...

Re: Maplins going under as well

Hi Baggus, yes around 20 years ago Tandy were pretty good for a range of components in the UK, small local shops, sort of a Maplins-lite I suppose. My favourite interconnects are still their Archer...

Re: Maplins going under as well

Yes got to agree with Bob, before Maplin in Nottm we had several trade outlets inc RS, then a couple of smaller retail component shops, and Tandy. Maplin came and all the others except RS closed.

Re: Phono3S it's humming again.

It might be worth re-checking the earthing arrangement.

As standard Phono case "earth" post is actually signal ground and is connected to mains earth in PSU via 100R.

Re: WD 25T plans needed - please.
