Re: Hmv rip

Not often that I see references to the old 555.

Back in 1976 I was involved in a very short lived venture setting up a hi-fi shop in Exmouth. For some of the time I lived in a flat above the shop...

Re: WAD Kt 88 our integrated schematic

I was wondering about that. Since most of the designs were published in detail in Hi-Fi World, are they not in the public domain anyway?

Re: stereo imaging nightmare help

What happens if you swap the speaker leads over at the amp? If the problem is anything to do with the amp or source, the image should move towards the other speaker. If Iíd doesnít, then itís the...

Re: Sony Music goes back to vinyl records

As I said, it wouldn't be the be-all and end-all, but it would make a half decent noise without destroying any vinyl played on it. I'm intrigued to know how much one would need to spend to reach your...

Re: Sony Music goes back to vinyl records

This puzzles me. What is your definition of good? Certainly, you can spend tens of thousands of pounds setting up a really top notch system, but at the same time, right now on eBay there's a pair of...

Re: Punchy bass

Indeed. Going back to Heybrook days it was never easy to get deep bass out of HB1s or HB3s, both of which used relatively large paper bass units like the WD25s, albeit in IB enclosures, and were...

Re: A tale of synchronicity

Ammonium tri-iodide made in chemistry lessons, when sprinkled in the lower corridor and allowed to crystallise, is very effective for scaring the s**t out of first formers as they scamper out to...

Re: Railway Steam Enginesí

Re: Railway Steam Enginesí

Recently found out that Tornado will be paying a visit to Cornwall in the summer, which means that she'll be coming up Hemerdon bank, about half a mile from here, on her way home. Any idea how I find...

Re: Tweeter replacement for WAD KLS3 MkII

Re: Tweeter replacement for WAD KLS3 MkII

Greg, since you have experience of both, how do you think the KLS3 compares to the WD25A or 25T?
