Re: Nothing In Particular

I wondered if anyone would make the link :-). FPTP seems archaic and unrepresentative. But PR means that there would probably never be a majority, so we'd be imersed in the world of coalitions, deals and brinkmanship. A bit like what we've just had. I guess we'd get used to it, and other countries s...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Nope, not intentionally anyway, but you're right, it was a live double album I seem to recall.

The People's Republic of Tory Scum. Might catch on I suppose :-).

So did anyone spot my song lyric reference yesterday? Or were you all deeply unimpressed? :lol:

Re: Nothing In Particular

The Greens have 1 seat with 864k votes, Plaid Cymru have 4 seats with 153k votes. Is first past the post relevant? Wou...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Blimey!

That's a sweet sounding phono stage. I contacted Brian Cherry regarding the circuit but never got a reply. I'd be really interested to see how it's built if you get chance to look at the circuit :-).

Re: Beyma CP21F match for Beyma TPL150H

Thanks Scott, very interesting. The apps don't tell me (in a way that's obvious to me anyway) about transient response, and group delay. I suppose then that my 0.7 Qtc is a little higher with other effects taken in to consideration. Food for thought.

Re: Beyma CP21F match for Beyma TPL150H

Re: 6v smps

Yes, I don't think there's really a way around heat if you want to regulate filaments. Better to embrace it! 6.3V @ 4A is "only" 25ishW. Shouldn't be too difficult, though it's the voltage drop across the regulating bit that needs the sinking. I've bolted mine to lengths of ally angle and never had ...
