Re: Nothing In Particular

AA breakdown cover renewal time once again.

Made the call and got a "special offer" of 12 months cover for 9 months payment.

NICE, even cheaper than last year. :D

Re: Nothing In Particular

I was checking my "stock" of LT1083 regulator kits earlier.

I found two completed kits, and two bags of components (for a slightly different type) but without PCBs. So, did they come without PCBs, or have I mislaid them ? :oops:

Phil,

On the eBay LT1083 board, do the stability caps provided match those specified in the LT datasheet?
To be honest, I've no idea. :oops:

Re: The Other 13E1 SE-OTL

I use one in my 15v PSU for the SEG DAC, and one in my 50W chip amp PSU at approx 25v, not sure about the current.

No problems as yet. :)

A Cambridge Audio CXA80 fit the bill nicely. Found one on eBay, mint, for sensible money, and it arrived today.

Chris
I read a review of the CXA80 and it seems impressive. :)

James (Bristol area) was building a GM70 push pull amp. Not heard any more about it for a few years.

Re: GK-71 - economical build.

My GK-71 amp is in essence the Nicholas Chua GM70 circuit with a few additions to make the GK-71 act as a triode.

Re: Nothing In Particular

I'm needing to get quotes for my Honda CRV as the insurance runs out soon.

I usually go to a comparison web site then check Direct Line and see how they compare.

Ant, have you tried a good old fashioned Insurance broker ?

Re: 833A (GU-48) Amp

I can't see at the moment, but I think I use 2 x 100W R1 (.1R ?) resistors and capacitors.

So, they are in the filament positive lead, and the caps are not across the filament.

Is that "bad" ?
