Re: Oh God, I've shorted my amp. Help!

I can't see any damage to any of the components, which leads me to think it is definitely one or more of the 3 output trannies which has gone! (could the smell have been an output tranny, it was...

I've got an XITEL Inport off-board A to D converter, which slots into the USB port and takes power from it. It's much better than using the input on most soundcards (apart from the top of the range...

Re: Dark Side of the Moon, again....

1st Solid Prism EMI pressing is great. Lush, analogue sound.

The anniversary EMI pressing is brighter and loses that 70's feel.
