Re: What Are You Listening To Right This Minute?

Stackridge. One of my favourite bands, and from Bristol too. Used to have a fan club called the Rhubarb Thrashers who would turn up to gigs with sticks of rhubarb used to thrash their mates with. I have their complete catalogue. Well worth exploring their other recordings. ‘Friendliness’ is a favour...

Free Headshell mass shims for Rega arm

I have a set of three cut to Rega headshell shaped shims of different weights. Great for increasing mass if the cartridge requires. Made by Audiomods.

Free to anyone who wants them. PM me your address.

Ooh I dunno, there are some fairly eccentric performers here. :-)
Put that right for you.

Re: Need ideas - workshop floor covering...

I’d have a look at the plastic interlocking panels generally available. There are loads of them. This link by way of example.

Do a google for plenty more examples.

Re: New 300B Valves for sale

Price reduction. Now £140 plus postage. £35 per new valve is surely a good deal. It’s less than half the cheapest 300B’s can now be bought for. In the hour I tested them, they really did sound good. Seems stupid them sitting here doing nothing.

Re: And another one

Well, I recently bought one of these from Nick. Am I glad I did. It really is an outstanding performer. I am still trying to get my head around the improvement it has brought to my vinyl system, which now is Denon DP-80 direct drive in bespoke CLD plinth, Audiomods Series 6 (carbon fibre wand) micro...

Re: Attendees Owston 1/2 June 19

I think it'd be beneficial all-round if we can talk openly about the sounds we heard over the weekend, so I'll start a thread on that. I heard some things I liked, some things I wasn't so keen on*, but it's always great to catch up with everyone. * Mostly related, I suspect, to room acoustics and v...

Re: Remember These?

A very honest and transparent sound. Very typical in my experience of OTL. I like it that there is one valve per channel. That cleans things up and further exposes the transparency. This was the same take away I had a couple of years ago after Ray demoing his 300B OTL. Speakers were not my cup of te...
