Re: Punchy bass

I built a pair of 25Ts about four years ago and I like them. However, I've sometimes wondered if the bass might be be a bit light. My conclusion is that the overall response is natural and that the...

Re: 3213 members who have said nowt.

I suspect that, of the large number of members, few are technical experts. My own contributions to the forum have mostly been appeals for help, which has been readily given. It is entirely possible...

Re: Vinyl cleaning gadgets

I see that Amazon offers the Hunt brush for a mere 128 and that an American website offers it at an even merer $29.99. Perhaps the Amazon version puts a layer of extra instruments onto the...

Vinyl cleaning gadgets

I have two devices dating from many decades past. One is a Watts "Dust Bug" with a transparent plastic arm rotating round a pivot attached by a suction cup to the TT base and a small cylindrical...

Re: Acoustic Research Turntable EB101

Thanks for the suggestions Colin. Before I brought the AR back into use, I dis clean and oil the bearing, but the dramatic breakthrough was introducing the Phono3. Since then, I've had to confess...

Re: Acoustic Research Turntable EB101

Hello Colin!

I've been strongly advised to stick with what I have at present. All the same, I'm very interested in your build using parts from eBay. I might have a go at something similar, just...

Re: Acoustic Research Turntable EB101

Colin, I was confused by the number of models of the Rega 3 (now P3?) produced at various dates. Did you have a particular year/model in mind?

I looked at the Linn website and other sources, Bob,...

Re: Acoustic Research Turntable EB101

Hello Colin!

Yes, it's exactly like the one in your picture. I didn't know there was a "British" version as such, though I've seen some models on American websites and on eBay that have a natural...

Acoustic Research Turntable EB101

A couple of years or so ago I assumed that this TT, which I've had from new, was very low in the pecking order and sought advice on the forum on whether or not to replace it. Several people said...

Re: Tannoy Gold

Phil

I've found a recent account by somebody who upgraded a pair of these LS. This included dismantling the units and spray-painting the horns after cleaning them. It also included the...

Re: Tannoy Gold

Just to clarify, the speakers aren't mine, but remain in the hands of their rescuer. I'm encouraging him to join this forum, but in the meantime I said I would tap its collective wisdom.

Tannoy Gold

A young family member has rescued four Tannoy Gold 15" Dual Concentric HPD/385/8 loudspeakers from being thrown into a skip. One is the bare driver unit, but three are in the original cabinets and...

Re: Phono stage

Monday. I thought the ground connection to the PCB from the L input was dodgy, so I resoldered it. but from the top only (i.e.) not the pin itself. The result is marginally better, but isn't a...

Re: Phono stage

Hello John,

I've had a look at the "short" pin and you're right; it does seem to have been pushed through and, if so, I must have been the pusher because nobody else has touched it. What's not...

Re: Phono stage

On the output valve that won't sit on its base, one of the pins - 4 - is noticeably shorter than the others. I happened to have a spare ECC83 and it seats perfectly and without undue pressure.

Re: Phono stage

I haven't tested anything yet, but when I took out the input valves a noticed that when I put them back, they sat properly into the bases, so that nothing of the pins was visible between the glass...

Re: Phono stage

Thanks, Phil.

I'll do as you suggest with the valves and then the rest if it proves necessary. I would welcome any tips you can give me on searching for a dry joint. When i did the tests listed...

Re: Phono stage

Help!

Despite the strong start previously noted, I'm now getting much more volume from the right hand speaker than from the left. That's still the case when I swap the leads over. There's no...

Re: Phono stage

To conclude, the Phono3 is up and running. The result wouldn't surprise the old hands who've given me such good advice. To me, it's a total revelation - clarity, "sparkle", depth and things I've...

So I spoke with Matthew. The gist of what he said is that the voltages given in both the PSU and the Phono3 instructions can be interpreted with a considerable amount of discretion, and that the...

Re: Phono stage

Thanks Bob. I'm not concerned about the voltage from the PSU because everything's been working fine for nearly six years. What's bothering me is that the PSU build instructions state that the...

Re: Phono stage

What I'm testing is the very first item on the checklist, which is to ensure that the power cable has been correctly assembled. So, yes, in effect I'm checking only that the supply from the PSU is...

Re: Phono stage

Just to complete the picture from my perspective. I first checked back on the PSU build instructions and found nothing wrong with the transformer wiring.

The HT output for both Pre3 and Phono3 is...
