Or, Nathan gets it to me and I get it to you, Nigel for when we have an early January session at yours?

Hi Greg,

Fine with that, and I could lend Nathan an amp while John is checking it over, have several spares as you know. It's up to Nathan though but the amp would benefit from a tidy up looking at the photos.

Yes, I agree. Nathan, just making the suggestion as I am also in Bristol, only work two days a week so might be able to help you out if you are a busy person.
I try to meet up with Nigel a couple of times a month. I'm in Frenchay. PM me if you would like me to help and we can discuss addresses etc.

Being a rank starter does complicate the issue somewhat as telling you what to do could be fraught with problems.
Is there any way you could get it to me so i can see what is going on?

Hi John, Nigel.

John that's very good of you to offer your services to a new member thank you. I'd like it if someone would take a look, as I said in my opening post I don't understand the reasoning behind the connector blocks.

Nigel, it's very good of you too to offer to drop it off. If memory serves me right 2 years ago you also took my SA9100 to a friend of yours to take a look and it was around this time too.
When were you thinking of going Mate?

Cheers,
Nathan.

Hi Greg.
This would be even better for me as I'm only in Yate.
I hope no one take offence to this but it just seems much more easier for me with Greg only being 20 minutes away from me.

Would it be ok to PM you Greg?

Nathan, no-one is being offended here. We are all linked. Get the amp to me and I'll get it to Nigel who in turn will take it to John. No doubt later, Nigel will collect and get it back directly to you or possibly through me. Not a problem. That's what we do here when we can.

If you want a loan of one of Nigel's amps, I can bring that up to you as well.

I expect a previous owners reasoning behind the connector blocks was that it allowed them to remove the PCB from the chassis without needing to desolder anything. John and others will show you that with a hot iron in a skilled hand, solder disconnection/reconnection is faster than a screwdriver!

That's great thanks.
I'll call Nigel Saturday sometime (if ok with Nigel) then sort something out from there with yourself.

Thank again all.
Nathan.

I just want to say a massive thank you to John, Nigel & Greg for helping me out with my KEL84.
I picked it up off of Nigel this morning and it's now looking and sounding superb.

Thanks again you 3, it's very generous of you all.
