Re: Help needed with Hum please!

Hi Zak,

Re: stereo imaging nightmare help

Hello Colin,

You've more than likely done this already, but assuming you are using a stereo pot, have you actually confirmed with a meter that the 2 tracks are balanced. If not, worth checking as...

Re: Anyone ever tried his WD25T on stands ?

Hello Vantheman,

Just finished these, only had a quick listen so no judgement other than it certainly sounds different to before. They cost less than 30 to make so no great risk. If I end up not...

Re: KaT6550 voltages

Hi Greg,

The 6550 that I did some work on the other week had the original manual with it. The owner is a friend, so I'm sure I would be able to access it again if you have any trouble getting the...

Re: Anyone ever tried his WD25T on stands ?

Hello,

Different speakers but I recently experimented with this. I have Tannoy Cheviot's that are a not very tall floor stander. I have read here and there that some people recommend having them...

Re: Chinese Stepped Attenuators

Hi Mark,

I have no direct experience of stepped attenuators although obviously they are highly regarded, but what I have tried and sounds good to me is the Alps Blue shunted with a Charcroft Z...

Hello Martin,
As you did not respond to my pm from last week, can I assume you are no longer interested?

Looks good Philip,

One thing though, that cobweb isn't a Peter Belt tweak is it?

Kel84

As it is no longer in use I have decided to sell my KEL84.
It was built by myself, about 12 years ago. It has the schottky diode heater mod, Mundorf Zn coupling caps and Elna Starget cathode caps....

Re: Converting WD KT88 to XLR

Hello Graham,

So really, your amp is unbalanced and staying that way. The question is, is there anything to be gained by interfacing your amp with the balanced output of the DAC over just using...

Re: Tube damper rings -Kel84

I would very much doubt it in a power amp.
Possibly, in a phono stage. I had a set (different type) many years ago but I don't seem to have them anymore, not sure where they went. I think that sums...

Re: SME & Garrard

Baggo,
I can only echo Greg's comments,
For many years I happily used a Pink Triangle LPT which was arguably the best of the mid-priced decks of its era. I became aware of the interest in idler...

Re: KEL84XL build

Hello Richard,

The KEL84 can be very quiet regarding hum so you should not despair. Is the hum you have equal on both channels ? If it is worse on one side or the other that may give you a clue as...

Re: KEL84XL build

Hello Richard,

I remember when I first built my KEL84 it was a bit of a culture shock after the Leak Stereo 20 I had been using for a couple of decades. I thought it was a bit lean sounding...

Re: KEL84XL build

Richard,

All electrical devices need a circuit to operate.
Would you expect a torch to light up if you only connected the positive end of the battery?

Re: Disappointing Audiolab

Yes, I heard about this on the radio news yesterday. Good news I think. I'm sure the future will ultimately be digital but not crappy DAB with it's low data rate and mono transmissions.

Hi Richard,

I have been doing a bit of "research" and if you can believe all you read, a few things have come to light.
