Re: Nothing In Particular

I certainly wouldn't have paid that for a standard one, they range from about 120 for a rough one to about 200 for a really clean museum exhibit. Some folks do ask silly money though, I've seen them at 300, 400 quid! Mind you, a 3009 can be silly money these days. I figure 112 quid each means I got ...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Got lucky again with a turntable related item. Following on from the 20 quid ultimo, 35 quid Hana and 100 quid nos ortofon sl15 carts, I wanted another lenco to butcher. Got another idea for one. A quick search and a cheeky offer to the seller later, I got another early 75 for 225 quid. Expensive fo...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Got the ortofon sl15e ll today. Turns out it's nos. Never been fitted............ It has now. Good god it sounds absolutely gorgeous! More spu than a modern spu. Very low output though, so it has to be cranked right up but I'd forgotten just how good these are. Smooth as silk with such a fabulous to...

Re: Remember These?

Well it wouldn’t really steepen any load line, because the constant current sink in the cathode would give an essentially flat load line. Valve rectifiers are right out for the output stage due to the huge (for a valve amp) current demands. 130V ought to be OK if the current is increased to maintai...

Re: Remember These?

Less volts and more current would steepen the load line somewhat, not sure if there are triode curves for the 13e1 but it would alter the op point and it depends wether the operation would be either more or less linear. You'd have to look at the curves and see what it looked like. 20v drop suggests ...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Ta folks, sometimes it pays to get a little creative. I think people are very reluctant to give a stylus a proper clean with fluid because of all the horror stories out there about Mr Jones having a ten grand cart and cleaning it with something other than fresh air, and the stylus falling off and ex...
