Re: K5881 Mk1 mods

I suppose the question is, after you carried out the alterations, how did it sound to you? Did you think your mods made an improvement over standard or otherwise?

Re: Any suggestions re; KiT6550 brightness?

I donít think Bob or I are getting into a slanging match. We simply have a difference of opinion and we are both expressing that difference. I have no respect for an opinion that declares a product...

Re: Any suggestions re; KiT6550 brightness?

Ok, letís get a few things sorted out. If some of us find silver plated OFC signal cables work, it is not acceptable for you to refer to silver plated cables as Ďcrapí. As ever, this is a subjective...

Re: Any suggestions re; KiT6550 brightness?

I’ve always used silver plated oxygen free copper PTFE insulated wire (as used in all WD kits) in all my amps for signal after I found cheap screened copper cable sounded flat and compressed. In...

Re: Any suggestions re; KiT6550 brightness?

I agree, John (and Richard). A pack of five polyesters (£10) for the price of one (four needed) Mundorf Supreme. I’ll wait to see what Tony wants to do, but I think it’s well worth trying the...

Re: Any suggestions re; KiT6550 brightness?

Just to clarify, the signal wiring I used is silver plated oxygen free copper. Single multi strand core in PTFE sleeve with SPOFC braided shield and PTFE outer. It is not unlike the twin core wire...

Re: More top end required

With respect, Iím afraid I canít agree with Alastairís advise here. I should make it clear from the outset that Graham is using my previously owned 401 in a Slatedeck to which he has now added a...

Re: Phono II advice Please!

Yes, having used both Rifa and Mundorf mylitics, Iíd pay the extra and get the mylitics. I found the choke benificial sound wise. Philip Ramsey sells Hammond chokes. You can buy direct from Hammond...

Re: WAD 300B PP Rebuild Advice Needed.

Yes, when a group of us built clones, we changed so the power switch was at the back in line with other WAD amps at the time. I got seven chassis made in a single order and this made them...

Re: WAD 300B PP Rebuild Advice Needed.

Re: Sme

I have No doubt they will still be supplied to other TT manufacturers on demand such as Michell. Anyway, why all the fuss? They generally sound rather grey and uninspiring and there are much better...

Re: Phono II advice Please!

Re: Pimping a PSU3?

In contrast, I did the choke mod in my PSU ll and it made a noticeable improvement to the sound overall. IIRC, some found benefit from the mod and others didnít.

PS. I think before getting it scoped, I would try another set of valves first.

Re: Mundorf Mlytic HV caps

Phil, yesterday I had the first opportunity to hear how the PSU cap change to Mundorf’s in Tony’s KiT6550 has influenced the sound in his system. What a great improvement to transparency and a sound...
