Ooh I dunno, there are some fairly eccentric performers here. :-)
Put that right for you.

Welcome Moo. What’s your real name? You have several of our long standing members living near you so great opportunities to hook up and build contacts.

Re: Need ideas - workshop floor covering...

I’d have a look at the plastic interlocking panels generally available. There are loads of them. This link by way of example.

Do a google for plenty more examples.

Re: New 300B Valves for sale

Price reduction. Now £140 plus postage. £35 per new valve is surely a good deal. It’s less than half the cheapest 300B’s can now be bought for. In the hour I tested them, they really did sound good. Seems stupid them sitting here doing nothing.

New 300B Valves for sale

For sale, a matched quad of Guiguang 300B valves with gold plated pins. These have been tested for 1 hour only to ensure they worked properly after purchase. I am selling because I no longer have a 300B amplifier. These valves present a transparent, lively and musical sound. £160 plus postage. http:...

Re: And another one

Well, I recently bought one of these from Nick. Am I glad I did. It really is an outstanding performer. I am still trying to get my head around the improvement it has brought to my vinyl system, which now is Denon DP-80 direct drive in bespoke CLD plinth, Audiomods Series 6 (carbon fibre wand) micro...

Re: Attendees Owston 1/2 June 19

I think it'd be beneficial all-round if we can talk openly about the sounds we heard over the weekend, so I'll start a thread on that. I heard some things I liked, some things I wasn't so keen on*, but it's always great to catch up with everyone. * Mostly related, I suspect, to room acoustics and v...

Re: Remember These?

A very honest and transparent sound. Very typical in my experience of OTL. I like it that there is one valve per channel. That cleans things up and further exposes the transparency. This was the same take away I had a couple of years ago after Ray demoing his 300B OTL. Speakers were not my cup of te...

Re: When is a pie not a pie?

I thought we fixed that. Well we did in my head at the time but that might not have been too rational! A pie has to have pastry all the way round. Small casserole dishes with pastry caps don’t count. Nigel’s pie on Saturday night was a chicken and ham soup with a pastry cap. That’s really wrong. Sam...

Re: Attendees Owston 1/2 June 19

Thanks as ever to Steve for the event organisation. You’ve been doing it for so many years and you just keep on giving! Quality! A great weekend. So good to catch up with everyone and get to know new faces and personalities. I had a blast (as apparently my Friday night performance confirmed!) I’m no...

What time do people start arriving on the Saturday morning - just trying to plan when I leave to travel up.
Seems to be between 9:00 and 10:00. The earlier you get there, the better your table choice.
