Re: The Audio-Talk Cycling thread.

I've just bought a new saddle for the Mem Sahib's raleigh and reclaimed mine. It's a Selle Royal for girlies and I ordered it on Monday on return from my intrepid expedition to switch electronics. It arrived this morning...so I have great praise for these people......the gel seat was £10..... www.ba...

3 core signal wire

does anybody know where I can get some 3 core signal wire or unterminated usb cable in the uk at sensible prices?

I'm looking for the thin type of usb wire that's about 3mm o.d, but I've been looking for an hour with no luck.

Re: Amazon basics....

I'm not sure how correct this is but the Amazon basics stuff looks an awful lot like the price of the shark cable from Maplins. I had a humungous reel of the stuff on the shelf but it's curious how quickly it disappears. I went looking for more when Maplins closed and it was available via ebay for a...

Re: Hello from Italy

P.S. I play the double bass with band jump_blues and rockabilly :) welcome Rockin_al, at last a fellow db man. My last outfit went by the name of concalma and had a strong Italian influence...coincidence? maybe. Here's Bella, alas I think she tires of me lately, I'm not as young and nimble as I was...

Re: The Audio-Talk Cycling thread.

this must be worth some serious kudos...the techy approach to route recording: route1.jpg Harry Holdsworth is out of action, awaiting a new pair of schwalbe 'cor blimeys' so I had to borrow the mem sahib's Raleigh Activator. After putting one of my racing saddles on I set off into the Hull rush hour...

Re: Something stirs in the Undergrowth

my apologies for labouring this Mark, but I've just remembered some things that might be pertinent. To wit: at one of the eggy outings in 2005 or 2006 I brought the Ariels along with the EL34 single ended amp. At some time in the proceedings Paul said to me something like 'I really like those Ed, th...

Re: Something stirs in the Undergrowth

all good by me.... except: 1. the sv572 is about 3.5 watts with a following wind and I've never tried it with the ariels...it's a true unknown. 2. the ariels have never left the studio since I built them....they've led a very sheltered existence...sadly. I guess I'm only really responding to the 'de...

Re: Something stirs in the Undergrowth

Yes, fair point Ed, my language was a bit loose, I did enjoy them quite a lot at times myself. I wouldn't go for drivers like that these days though. Did you find higher-power SET amps were enough, or solid state ? I think the Aurora PP 300B was the best of my amps for driving them. It's an interes...

Re: Something stirs in the Undergrowth

Ps. I understand now why the Ariel sounds a bit dead & lifeless. The Vifa drivers (P13WH-00-08) are very mechanically damped - Qms = 1.38 and Rms approx. 2.0. I've seen this 'black and white' statement before, and as before I have to defend the ariels..... A different partner may give a completely ...
