Re: Yorkshire Hi-Fi Club

Shame. I can’t make it. I’ll be just five days post-op after another knee replacement surgery, probably only 2nd day home. Hope it goes well, though.

Re: Yorkshire Hi-Fi Club

I so want to join in. I have something pretty special TT wise to present and want to do it, but frankly, Halifax is a step too far from Bristol, especially as I’d be on my own for the journey there and back. I don’t handle this sort of stuff so well these days, especially doing it on my own. Sorry, ...

Re: The Audio-Talk Cycling thread.

Them Aldi maintainance stands at £30 are good value, don’t you think? Used mine twice now on my bike and son has also benefitted. Much better than crocking this 60+ old back, IYNWIM. :D

Re: Isolating Transformer

I use a basic Airlinks 2Kv isolation transformer. All my audio kit is fed through it. I found at certain times of day, particularly between 4 and 8pm, I frequently found the Airlinks was buzzing. I added on of Nick’s DC blocker boards and the Airlinks has not, to my knowledge, buzzed since.

Re: Captions for the photo on a postcard LOL

Chris: you see David, ever since Scott and Colin produced my new speakers, my sound has been perfect. I don’t need any of your assecories. Colin: well, that’s what we target every time. Exactly the outcome we were after. David: Ok, guys, you've got me, but there’s nowt wrong considering a special pl...

Re: What Are You Listening To Right This Minute?

Chris, I visited Colin today and I commented to him that ever since you took receipt of your new speakers, all you have done here is post what you are listening to. You are obviously one happy listening man!

Re: Fane 15" full range speaker

So who’s twisting what? As usual, no-one, apart from within your paranoid imagination. I simply challenged your sweeping statement that wool in a speaker cabinet made it sound woollen and moved on to evidence why I disagree with you. That is the case. I have tried removing it, actually twenty years ...

Wool does nothing inside a speaker but make them sound woollen.
Sweeping statement. it depends on application. My sealed midrange chambers are well stuffed with long hair wool. They sound anything but woollen. More like crystal clear and musically transparent.

Re: NAS Recommendations

+1 for dBpoweramp. Really user friendly and will rip CD’s that some other software can’t do. I had one CD nothing would rip. dBpower amp managed it but it took 11 hours!

Re: Yorkshire Hi-Fi Club

Next meeting is turntables, early August date to be announced. Going on your limited information, I’m expecting this will not be a ‘bake off’ event. Concidering all the necessary additional variables of arm, cartridge, wiring/cabling and even step up Tx’s, head amps and PSU’s (there may well be mor...

Re: WTB - KLS3 or KLS 3 Gold etc speakers

He turned out to be a time waster, I’m afraid, Ant. I had some extended email discussion with him, promising to visit me as I have a pair for sale. He eventually concluded that KLS3 speakers might be too big. At the time he was on benefits, had no money and was living in a mobile home!
