Re: Reel to reel

Excellent! :thumbright: The 'clunk' might have been a solenoid? My Akai has all plug-in boards, which was probably a 'thing' back then, and they plug into 0.2 inch pitch double-sided edge connectors, which I don't think you can get anymore. The biggest is for the motor control board and there was so...

Re: How can I tell if valves need replacing

Ah, dirty socket connections then hopefully. :D I just remembered, yes another sign is funny noises. Have had a bunch of 6SN7's go off with clicking crackling noises. Sounds like bad connections, but not. Also had Golden Dragon EL34's where the getter gradually disappeared. Didn't turn white, just d...

Re: Reel to reel

Damn. :( Need a service manual really to know how things are supposed to work, what they look like and how to test stuff. I've got an Akai GX370D, from a mate at Maplin, soon after I got a second hand service manual (from the US!), and I've needed it! Belts can be very dodgy due to age and cause a l...

Just after 1pm we heard a noise outside, but were unable to decide what it might have been.

Just found out it was a sonic boom. :o

Re: Nothing In Particular

I dont have a norm abrahm shirt like that, but my atrocious looking 15 year old overalls have definitely seen better days. I have been told on numerous occasions that they should be burned, but i havent been able to get some that fit as well, so they will never be burned! There is so much ground in...

Re: Nothing In Particular

.... Could I use the usual cheap keyboard,mouse, usb stick that I am used to? What about a monitor? Svga, DVI, hdmi or .... What? Any thoughts? Waste of time and money? I did this for quite a while, then finally forced myself to learn to use the native screen, keyboard and mousepad - actually, neve...

Re: The Audio-Talk Motorcycling thread.

Thanks for your enthusiasm chasps. :thumbright: The smaller bikes are attractive – then you go onto bigger stuff later on, and the possible problems and expenses get bigger too. And the weight. I haven't forgotten a memorable trip I did to south Wales and back on my Honda CD175, in 1978. The bike ha...

Re: The Audio-Talk Motorcycling thread.

Drilled a small drain hole in the bottom of air filter box to let any water out. There's a photo someone posted on FB, showing the inside of his half full of water. Apparently, they say, this should be part of dealer PDI now, to put a wee drain hole in. To be extra posh I added a bit of 6mm rubber h...
