Re: What Are You Listening To Right This Minute?

How are you listening to Qobuz Chris, a LMS plug in perhaps?

And Yes I think three decks are the minimum number really - my wife doesn't fully agree on that but does agree that three decks is better than ten decks!

Re: Blackgate Caps

I have 2 WKZs in my 2A3 amp. TBH I've never thought wow these are great. But I'd have to replace them with something else of the same capacitance to know if they do sound better/different. Not very helpful I appreciate.

Re: New SE With Triode Mode KT120/150

Wow, looks quite shiny. Just the standard finish or has it had a bit of a polish?

What's the top plate material Steve, stainless steel? Looks great.

Re: GM70 PP

I found a post I recall on DIYAudio - kevinkr (who knows what he's doing from all I've read) talks about 1500 hours for coppers and them soon being ready for replacement.

Re: GM70 PP

Not sure I can really, mine only get occasional use really and I'm fairly gentle with them - 550V 90mA.

Re: Mike Head, aka' little eddy'

A bit too close to home eh Dave :shock:. Mike was only a little older than me.

When I was chatting with Mike at Owston last year I think he said he'd only recently retired. That really sucks.

Re: Nothing In Particular

If I'd had a use for the brushes I'd a tekken them out no problem. I did consider removing the drum as they're good for planting things like figs in - constrains the growth roots so it doesn't get too large and concentrates on fruiting, but let's the fine feeding roots out. But work was busy and tim...

Re: Tesla.

This Prius is the best car to drive I've had. Yeah there are times I miss the RWD of my old 5 series BMW (not in snow!) but overall it's a great car. Would I buy one if it weren't a company car? Don't know. There's a lot of technology to go wrong, though I've not heard reports if this being a problem.

Re: Nothing In Particular

It's usually fridges, freezers, and washing machines that trip RCDs apparently. Some electrical installations have a separate ring that's not on a RCD for this very reason. But do you feel lucky punk??? Our washing machine started to trip the RCD after it had been on a programme for a couple of minu...

Yes, I’m banking on there being a way to disable it.
I seem to recall it was European legislation that decreed electric vehicles would make an artificial sound? Presumably for reasons above.

Re: Tesla.

Driving a car on electric near people is a bit unnerving at first as they can't hear you. Quite a few times people have been ambling along in the middle of car parks unaware of a tonne and a half of car in stealth mode behind them. The previous Prius used to beep when in reverse - but only inside th...
