Re: WAD Kt 88 our integrated schematic

They certainly are although not all schematics published in the DIY Supplement were the correct final version. The articles were often based on a prototype and there were further adjustments and...

Re: WAD Kt 88 our integrated schematic

I donít understand why this has become an ongoing discussion. In his first paragraph above, Matthew (proprietor of WD) has clearly stated they hold the rights to the current WD models and all...

Re: tonbridge audiojumble

Hey, Iím not that negative. If you can make it work, Stuart, good luck with it. Iím always open to buying second hand vinyl at a nice price. The last Tunbridge event I went to, I managed to sell a...

Re: recapping speakers

Yep, high value polypropylene caps are not cheap and large. I Ďve just rebuilt my KLS3 Mk3 (Peter Comeau revision) crossovers. Total of six 50uF caps. Ouch! Needed a big box for external application...

Re: Fixing tear in HDA driver

I would try an application of glue on both sides of the cone. The glue needs to retain a bit of viscosity as it dries so it forms a slightly raised scab like covering over the split. Allow to fully...

Re: Screened lead

Thanks for your offer, Phil. I have decided to proceed as I originally intended and then Intenso can have a listen to the result. If he requires the sound to be softened, I may well take you up on...

Re: WAD K5881 modded to take EL38s

All your photo’s show monoblok amps that have no visual relevance to the original 5881 design. Going with the similarity you appear to be relying on and God knows what that is, how about getting into...

Re: WAD K5881 modded to take EL38s

I donít see the relevance to the original WAD 5881. Everything is different from the original kit. Are you saying that the basic WAD circuit contributted to the final build? Nothing new there. Thatís...

Re: Screened lead

Phil, thank you. What is the PTFE sleeved solid silver core wire you are using in the Phono?

Yes, I have no doubt the success of silver plated PTFE in my system, but not in yours is simply system...

Well, Stuart, I am in complete agreement with you on the things in our world to be concerned about, but that isn’t really the point is it? The principle problem is that by EU directive, Stereo Coffee...

Re: Suitable 'speaker cables for valve amps?

A quick update. Blue Jeans cable is now available in the U.K. through Amazon, so it is a very affordable option. Highly recommended. I have three friends who now use it as their cable of choice. It’s...

Re: Dark Voice 336SE h/amp

I was messing around with Stereo Coffee about two years ago. Let us hope Chris has improved things since then. I do think you need to consider the legality issue. In your case, it is Chris who is...

Re: Dark Voice 336SE h/amp

There are several issues. The first is that Chris is probably dislexic. Now I don’t know if I am...

Re: KEL84 v KT88

Just another perspective. Consider what music you prefer to listen too. If you are into complex music be it heavy rock or massed orchestra, choir and organ, you need the KT88. If you listen to simple...

Re: Dark Voice 336SE h/amp

Ok, slow response because Iíve been away with no service on my phone.

The very benefit of pseudo shunt is that it is an upgrade exactly because it deals with poor pot quality. That was the design...

Re: KEL 84 for sale

You are concerned with visual aesthetics. I get that completely and would agree, leaving the switches and nobs in place but unconnected would be preferable.

Re: Dark Voice 336SE h/amp
