Re: The Audio-Talk Motorcycling thread.

Looking really good. Have you done your own paintwork or had it sprayed/stove enamelled professionally? Is the chrome original or has it been redone? The stand looks interesting. Original was cast alloy, the feet of which used to wear out rapidly. Is that an Indian replacement? If you’ve still got t...

Re: Something stirs in the Undergrowth

Ariels sounded wonderful at Eggfest when hooked up to Paul’s (build it in front of you) 212 amps.

Hi Nick,

I’ll buy it, please. If you can convert to 230v that would be good.

I can pay PayPal or bank transfer. Let me know.

Thanks,

Greg

Next time I'd use a piece of rubber (or similar) tube.
I’ve found that provided you butt the two shafts closely together and get them properly aligned, adhesive heat shrink works really well.

Re: Pauls 301

Ant, your plinth looks good and I have no doubt they would satisfy many a 301 owner. I use a similar design for my Denon DP-80 made for me by Nigel (vinylspinner) which Toppsy veneered and finished for me. However, it’s worth having a look at the competition both for what competes with you and for i...

I heard that rumour. Well, it's good enough to get around OK here , up to a point - so I may have to go out with the camera in a short while to inspect things. How thick is it elsewhere ?
Just stopped snowing in Bristol. It’s been going for about 16 hours. 15cm in my garden.

Re: Latest vinyl 'finds'.

With respect, at the time of posting, no one in the U.K. was advertising it as immediately available including you. I bought it from the US and so have several of my friends and they got it much cheaper than I did. Possibly a second production run. I agree. It is astonishingly good as Nick would say...

Re: What Are You Listening To Right This Minute?

On vinyl?

I hope your system has the resolution to dig out the difficult to hear bass lines.

Just a general observation. I personally don’t have a problem with this......I get it all (as someone once said).

Free 6 month subscription to OS digital maps

I recently bought a book from Ordnance Survey and it came with a free 6 month subscription to their on line map service. Value £10. I already subscribe so it is of no use to me. Anyone interested, PM me your email and I will forward the subscription code to you.

Re: House sound?

No problem, Phil. HD650’s and other models and makes are often available second hand at a very good price. From a hygiene perspective, replacement ear foam and covers are available from Sennheiser for little cost. They can also be removed and washed.

Re: House sound?

Phil, sorry, can’t answer your question, but you are welcome to borrow my Sennheiser 650’s if it might help your research.
