Re: What Are You Listening To Right This Minute?

wow split enz +1, thanks Steve. I think I'm going to be listening this morning, don't hear much about them these days. I saw them at the roundhouse in 1977 or 1978 and been a fan ever since. I can recommend Dizrhythmia if you haven't got it. my take is that all the Finn brothers stuff has mellowed ...

Re: What Are You Listening To Right This Minute?

A load of 35-40+ year old 45s. Certainly evocative and you get a bit of exercise, getting up every three minutes. :lol: Chartbound sounds include: Kraftwerk - The Model Junior Murvin - Police and Thieves Pretenders - Back On The Chain Gang, Brass In Pocket Haircut 100 - Favourite Shirts Black Slate ...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Watched a BBC4 recording of Chris Packham, talking about his punk rock teenage years and it prompted me to have a dig around the depths of my singles collection, looking for punk 45s of which I don’t have that many, as I was a couple of years too old at the time, to have really gotten into it. I pre...

Re: spooky

I was under the impression that reverse directories are illegal in this country. Normally, reverse directories are used by emergency services and police, to be able to find people from their phone number in an emergency situation. They are for internal use only and not for the general public to acc...

Re: DIY Transistor Amp Using NVA Boards

I can bring “The Clone” to your place when you’re free if you want to hear it on your speakers. That sounds like a plan Steve, can we give it a few weeks.. I'd like to get this valve amp finished and, unfortunately, I'm starting a kitchen refurb at Lesleys daughter's next week, I expect that to tak...

Re: DIY Transistor Amp Using NVA Boards

It would be good to hear it Steve, I too have found what I think is a much better amp than the a20, but im sure people will laugh when I say it's built around the tda2030 chip.. I've owned them for a few years, but eventually give them a try a few months ago.. pretty good in my view. I've been tryi...

Re: DIY Transistor Amp Using NVA Boards

It’s almost fully cased up now: 413A493E-C3C4-47AC-91F2-877816A52E04.jpeg Holes punched in top surface of case will be backed with aluminium mesh, sprayed black. Still to decide on a front panel. Whatever I decide upon, the panel will be attached to the Sony front panel we see in the picture. It’ll ...

Re: DIY Transistor Amp Using NVA Boards

So where to go? Well if anyone on here can give me some suggestions as to where to find literature on solid state high fidelity amp circuits, how they work, and how to apply them without creating arc-welders, I’d be grateful. Steve did these suggestions not provide any, or enough ideas?. http://www...

Re: DIY Transistor Amp Using NVA Boards

For a reference work Self or Cordel would be my suggestion. Probably and instead of or in the last sentence. Cheers Nick, Plenty to get one’s teeth into, with those two volumes. :) I think the good Dr had this circuit more or less as good as it gets. I won't be messing with mine. There are a few th...

Re: DIY Transistor Amp Using NVA Boards

So how does the NVA clone sound now it has been reworked with separate power supplies on the front end and power stages? In a word, marvellous! It’s surprisingly easy describe the improvement over my bog standard A20; the clone, further gets out of the way of the music. The biggest difference betwee...
