Re: Nothing In Particular

Me and Ant have been preparing the stairs to be un-open planned. It was a fad at the end of the 70s to knock through into the stairwell. Stupid idea, but everyone else was doing it and we were young and handy with the sledgehammers and steel beams. All the aunts and uncles who had 1930s 'semis knock...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Have just started a bit of a building project involving the living room, much timber and plasterboard, wallpaper, picture rails, and custom shelving units and cupboards, all built by my good self. This means the system has had to be dismantled and put away until the works have been completed. :( It'...

Re: Transcendent Mini Beast Build

Steve is the Mini Beast chassis connected to mains earth? I ask as I completed a Sub Buddy which Bruce specifies as having no chassis connection to mains earth. The chassis is connected to signal ground - Bruce is trying to avoid ground loops - but safety therefore depends on the interconnects bein...

Re: Transcendent Mini Beast Build

Steve, I was wanting to send you a PM but you seem to have disabled your PM facility. It's back on now. A leftover from all the nastiness of a few months ago. I got inundated with messages from knobheads, and people who I would have thought would have known better. Hopefully it'll stay quiet now.

Re: Transcendent Mini Beast Build

Only fly in the ointment is the nearly 300W power consumption. The thing sounds fantastic, so much so that I might consider one, but I would have to limit my listening to keep the leccy bill down. But........maybe.........no.......stop being silly!

Re: Transcendent Mini Beast Build

Any comments on the sound of the amp? It sounds natural, with a voices in the room quality, I haven't experienced in my own system since hearing the 300B SE OTL I built for our Ant's client. The Son of Beast push pull OTL owned by Dave (Thermionic Idler) also has this quality, so I'm assuming it is...

Re: Transcendent Mini Beast Build

Aye, the front plate is better looking than the old aluminium one; a bit less bling. The eyes are drawn more to the tubes with this design. Probably saved him a few cents as well, as it's a dual layer plastic type.

Here's the finished internal construction:

Spot on Colin. Lovely speakers.
