Re: Phono II advice Please!

You are being trapped (owing to other posts here) into exploring things that are not really that relevant. Your issue is the performance of your Phono ll, and not your cathode follower pre. I...

Re: KEL84 Conundrum/advice

Yes, probably from one hour in. Thereafter, enjoy until you detect them going off.

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.

Re: Phono II advice Please!

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

Re: Phono II advice Please!

The right honourable Matthew Snell, proprietor of this forum and WD.

From what has been said, I think considerations around your passive pre is a red herring, particularly if it works ok with your...

Re: Mundorf Mlytic HV caps

Worked this out for myself in the end. For the information of anyone contemplating making this upgrade to PSU3, the caps to replace are C1 and C2. Pre3 also requires change to C4 and Phono3 change to...

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...

Re: KEL84 from the recycling centre

The WAD confusion comes because the amps are constructed with the chassis inverted that probably confused when the instructions were compiled :D'oh!:

Re: KiT/KaT6550 and fuse blowing inrush current

I hope you get a good result, Chris. Maybe if you do this upgrade you could record it here for the interest of others.

I should emphasise that the KiT/KaT 6550 is now an old amp and other areas...

Re: KiT/KaT6550 and fuse blowing inrush current

I believe if you choose Sowter UO82, looking at their current spec, there are some differences to wire colours. My advise would be to phone Sowter in the first instant and discuss with them what you...

Re: KiT/KaT6550 and fuse blowing inrush current

Sorry Chris, no. You have the option of surface mount Ďfully shroudedí or Ďdrop throughí. Fully shrouded can be used most easily as it requires the chassis to be drilled in four places to mount it...

Re: KiT/KaT6550 and fuse blowing inrush current

Itís not as simple as that, Neil. A change to coupling caps does not necessarily bring a better sound although they can, but it is more realistic to say they may change the sound to the owners...

Smile Re: KiT/KaT6550 and fuse blowing inrush current

I donít have a clue about alternatives either for the original Txís or for the Sowter option. What I do know is the Sowter option is a worthwhile and significant sound noticeable upgrade. If you are...

Re: Interconnects

Good point raised and I have full respect for Les Wolstenholme who I have met and shared knowledge with. I could easily put my crossovers close to my amp and then run cables to the speakers, but with...

Re: KiT/KaT6550 and fuse blowing inrush current

It’s not so much about how long the original output Tx’s will last but more about the improvement to sound the Sowter’s render. This is not insignificant and why I say a replacement pair at just...

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: 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...
