Re: DHT Heater Group Buy notes.

Andrew, have you got a BOM or BOM's for the board ?
& can you confirm the Kemet part C2220C474J5GACTU is the non-epoxy part ?
I need to get a few more and label them !

Re: Future plan for 300B XLS amp

Been stable for a while now - 4P1L as pentode , approx. 7.5k anode load, G2 set by OA2 from cathode at 150V . No by-pass cap on cathode resistor.
This driver stage suits me in terms of distortion spectrum and was excellent also driving GK-71 at moderate B+.

Re: Future plan for 300B XLS amp

Just did a quick check on the 300B breadboard, after some inconsistency while finishing the OB speakers, and some odd behaviour by the VR tubes the other day. Checked continuity of earth from central star-earth to vol pot and input connectors. All is well on R channel. Open circuit on L channel :con...

Re: The Audio-Talk Cycling thread.

Bike ride on the valley roads, 1 hour 9 mins. Legs a bit wobbly getting off and back into the house, but it was a decent start.

Re: The Audio-Talk Cycling thread.

Not in about 1/2 hour ! I just spent about 2hrs grappling with chain change , cassette swap, cleaning, and searching for parts that kept hiding. But now I'm in better shape to tackle the hills : Bike_27cassette.JPG ps. Every report of Froome's injuries gets worse ! http://www.msn.com/en-gb/sport/cyc...

Re: Something stirs in the Undergrowth

Sounding like 56+30uF is the better of the two. More upper bass tone, and the soundstage is more solid and natural. I have just ordered some 22 & 33uF bipolar Mundorf caps from HFC to see if they're good enough ( they are small enough to fit in the box with the EVO oils ) , otherwise will have to bo...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Sounds very interesting. Was this just supplied as a motor and platter - because I can't get an image of a complete deck ?

I’m sitting here immersed in Nick Drake’s “Bryter Later” on vinyl as I write this and it is hard to imagine anything could be better.
Every track a cast-iron classic !

Re: GK-71 - economical build.

I hadn't spotted this problem before, but Izzy Wizzy has pointed out that the G2 maximum voltage rating for the GK-71 is only 400V : http://www.goldenmiddle.com/files/GK71.pdf Which seems a bit mean given the 1.5kV limit on the anode. This, if correct, would rather limit the available power ( in A1 ...

Blimey. I've just looked on ebay - seems I've missed the boat on coppers...
That's very very NOT OK, they were only about £120/pr until even 6 months ago.
I wonder what Yuriy can do ?
I would buy at least another pair.
