Re: Musical Fidelity A100

If it was mine and no mention of not moving it on, I would have given it to you Philip, I will try to get hold of the chap who gave me it to see if I can part with it. I would hate to cross the...

Re: Musical Fidelity A100

Sorry Philip, I can't let you have it as it was given to me by a friend who asked me not to move it on, I must respect his wishes. BOB

Re: Electrostatic Loudspeakers any experience?

The 989's are very good Andy, but need space behind them, I had a demo some years back but found the bass not to my liking, good but not powerful, if you chose the 57's then ONE THING AUDIO...

Re: JR149 speakers

Hi Richard, these were a alternative to the much now sort after BBC LS3 5A and I think that they use the same drivers, I had a pair of the LS3 5A's that I bought in the late seventy's for 20.00 and...

Re: A little sad but believable

Re: Hum issues on transformer output preamp

Well this is strange Andy, but as you say in your PM to me, it is possible that the double insulated power amp is responsible. Some time back I looked at a Pre III and Phono III for one of our...

Re: Hum issues on transformer output preamp

Andy, I may have said before but, do the cables from the transformers to the output sockets connect to ground, the output should float, IE, "NO" connection to ground, that is as far as my thinking...

Re: Darkvoice 336se

Martin, I tried the entry level set up first and then tried the top set up at the time, however, I opted for the 007t energiser and the 404 head set, at the time it was 1295.00, but worth every...

Re: Darkvoice 336se

Re: Interconnects

Well said Greg, I would like to make one further thought, if one changes a cable for another in their system the sound appears different, more life and that person thinks it is better, now then, in...

Re: PLZ pre-preamp

Re: PLZ pre-preamp

Re: Where to from here...?

You could be right about going soft Adam, be seriously, what do you find offensive with automatics, especially the 6 speed power shift that gives the same or better flue consumption than a manual and...

Re: Variac recommendations

Hi Adam, I have and use a 3 amp variac, it also gives a voltage increase up to 300 volts, I think this size is all that is required for our hobby. Bob

Re: PLZ pre-preamp

I have one of these, I did try it with my Kontropunkt, feeding it into Phono III MM, it worked OK but never had it working for long, as Richard said, it has no RIAA, just a simple step up. Bob
