What's a couple of 10nF caps between friends :-). Glad they've worked for you, I still haven't found a use for them yet.

Re: Remember These?

I'd forgotten about those. I got them back in the day when Russian stuff, caps and some valves, were cheaper than chips. I don't remember how much they were, probably less than a quid each.

Re: Floods

It's pretty bad in places, worse than 2007 in some locations. Didn't shut the M1 this time though, but the flood defences built at the back of Meadowhell after the 2007 floods were breached.

Re: Speaker design/test software

Watching with interest Mark. I'm seriously thinking about triamping with low pass and high pass filters within the amplifiers and it might be a bit approximate doing it by ear.
