Re: What Are You Listening To Right This Minute?

Thanks for the tip
I've just started to look at buying in a few vinyl lp's from Joan A.
I see there is a live CD only recording at the Royal Albert Hall.
Should be one I go for as well.

Re: Wanted: 6SN7 Tubes.

I'm the laziest Tube roller to be found, my recent purchases are still boxed and not trialed.
It will be a deepest winter past time, to fill a few hours, when housebound.
I will consider other choices as I progress with the evaluations.

Re: NOS Siemens and Halske ECC801S

This search can be edited.
A matched pair is now a option, as they can be used with another valve type pair.

NOS Siemens and Halske ECC801S

I am putting the feelers out for a measured Quad Matched set of Siemens and Halske, ECC801S Valves. I have a interest in how they will perform in a Phonostage vs a ECC83 set up.

Hi Colin Thank you for your offer to visit again. I was hoping to make the Yorkshire Hifi Club, my final jaunt out in 2018. It looks like I might have to squeeze one more in. I would also like to hear the latest design you have produced as well. How easy is it to get the 845's into your home. These ...

Re: OB Speaker Opportunity

The vendor has informed me the Alpha's are 8 Ohm @ 400 Watt and the Kappa's are 8 Ohm @ 600 Watt. There are no XO's with these speakers. They have a Birch Plywood flat plain baffle. I can modify the baffle if it is seen to offer a improvement. I am happy to replace all bass drivers with the all read...
