Re: Corona Virus Lock Down 'Rant' Thread.

Those bastards need naming and shaming. The c**ts that licked their hands in a supermarket then wiped them over fruit, vegetables and door handles should get twenty years minimum for terrorism, because that’s what it is; biological bloody terrorism! :angryfire: :angryfire: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news...

Re: Super Rocky

Nice addition Steve. When you describe your Rocky as the best amp you've ever built does that relegate the 13E1 OTL? Not exactly Ray. The OTL, like others of its ilk has a unique way with music. The power consumption is the thing that bothers me about it. I’m glad I built it, as it was/is a major t...

Re: Corona Virus Lock Down 'Rant' Thread.

Aye, taking the dog for a walk is no longer enjoyable as you need to be on high alert all the time for other people. Zig zagging back and forth across the road to avoid oncoming people on the footpath is now an unfortunate part of being outside in an urban area. Those of you in the living in the cou...

Re: Interim replacement for Denon 103R - suggestions?

Goldring E2 would be my choice of cheap cartridge. It’s the middle of the E series and is an excellent cartridge. I use one on my own TT.
Mantra Audio have them on offer ATM.
