Re: KEl34

Your best option on making a sale is to state the price you have in mind for it and of course to publish some pictures. Anything less and the likelihood is your advert will just sink with no response...

Re: Hi-Fi Journeys

Yes, I completely understand what I should have done, recording my second episode of My Hi-Fi Journeys. Certainly Iíll have a go at doing it again in due course, but itíll need me to find a time to...

Re: Hi-Fi Journeys

Also, I thought there were more replies on this thread other than Bobís. Where have they gone?

Re: Hi-Fi Journeys

Sorry for the lack of update. Iíve just spent over two hours writing my next episode to see it disappear into the ether when I tried to upload it. Yes, my fault, I should have saved it and reapplied...

Re: The Puffin DSP phono/preamp

Anyway, optical cartridges are the new thing, and although they are expensive at the moment, no doubt the prices will drop as more manufacturers get involved and the technology develops. They...

Re: The Puffin DSP phono/preamp

I find that a bit disingenuous. You are implying that unless we check out the Puffin, we are all Luddites. I for one have explored many avenues before settling for what I currently use and this...

Hi-Fi Journeys

My Hi-Fi Journey Part 1

My Hi-Fi journey started when I was quite young. My parents loved classical music and I learnt this love for it from them. This led to me frequently listening with them and...

Re: Is there anybody out there?

Well it seems there are a few of us still around. It would be good to bring a bit of life back to this forum, Iím inclined to think that going towards a general hi-fi discussion in the general room...

Is there anybody out there?

To quote a line from my favourite band and my favourite album they did.

Re: KiT/KaT6550 and fuse blowing inrush current

Hi Philip,

On the amp I worked on I in the end converted it from power to integrated.

I introduced the simple mains filter together with the inrush current limiter as suggested by John. I also...

Re: Punchy bass

Stuart, I do not speak Spanish. In fact my only language is English and I have much admiration for people who are bi or multi-lingual, yourself included.

When anyone uses a foreign (to me) phrase...

Re: Punchy bass

‘Asi es la Vida’ makes much more sense to me and it then becomes appropriate for a hi-fi forum, English or otherwise.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading your explanation. Please leave your coat on its...

Re: Punchy bass

Glad you remain happy with your Sextet’s.

Just a note. Esta la vida does not actually mean a lot. Esta es la vida is more comprehensible albeit, I’m not sure it is relevant at the end of a post on...

Re: WD25t drive units and crossovers

I suggest you stop dreaming and post a price you want for the cabinets, but better, your sale of the complete speakers which surely will govern the most interest even if it would be a ‘pick up’ deal...

Re: WD MCT SUT question

You are right. Always worth a try rotating any Transformer if you suffer hum. Do as you suggest but also have a go at what John suggests if a hum problem continues. The other option of course is...

Re: Crossover components rolling ?

Stuart, I acknowledge, Russian Teflon caps are very good per se and can be well used in audio kits/equipment to good value. As I have said, I have very happily used them previously in my Phono II....

Re: The Puffin DSP phono/preamp

Youíre overly optimistic IMHO, but youíll inevitably do what you do. Good luck to you. I hope it works out. Personally I think you are chasing too big a project, but give it a go and tell us when you...

Re: The Puffin DSP phono/preamp

I recently swapped my streaming source from Tidal to Qobuz. In the process I lost several albums from my library as Qobuz did not hold them. I just went on line and bought the second hand CD’s of...

Re: The Puffin DSP phono/preamp

Stuart,

I know all the fancy stuff DSP is claimed to achieve. I stream music through Roon so have the DSP option. It’s been tried and no DSP setting is better than getting the system and room...

Re: The Puffin DSP phono/preamp

Some interesting points raised, Stuart. I have to say the Puffin does not appeal to me. I’ve had a so called modern and small phono stage (Ray Samuels Audio, Nighthawk) and the performance, despite...

Re: The Puffin DSP phono/preamp

A very reasonable point. I suspect Stuart is just relating his own personal system development experience whilst disregarding the corporate issue because he doesnít think that way and is only intent...
