Re: Owston meet 27+28 Nov 21-add your name here

IIRC, we ended up a bit short of sources, so we ran some music from Nick's USB drive through my laptop and USB DAC. Those went through the OTL amp and then the Crown amp, through the Lowther OBs. I thought the Crown amp did quite well - it didn't show itself up as obviously bad, despite being possi...

Re: Owston meet 27+28 Nov 21-add your name here

I'd forgot we had a great evening session, nick dragged his lowther quasars down and give them a go on my mofo and then my little one watt amp. Andrew insisted on a massive attack mezzanine work out, that soon overloaded the p650, but with reduced volume it did very well. One watt is easily overload...

Isn't it funny how linkwitz gets his name on a well known design from the 50s.. although it was ceramic pipe then I suppose..

Re: Owston meet 27+28 Nov 21-add your name here

Good news, I'm just packing my car.. Just a thought.. if anyone decides they want to come at the last minute, please come, it's easy to add numbers to the lunch buffet than take them off... as I've already committed to the number I have to pay for.. And of course everybody is welcome. My test was cl...

Re: Owston meet 27+28 Nov 21-add your name here

Steve, what's the final cost and can I do a bank transfer for the amount? I would prefer cash at lunchtime ray It's £15 per person for the event. No charge for the sunday But I'll be putting a tip on top of that for the bar kitchen staff.. It up to everyone if they want to contribute a tip for the ...

Re: Proposed anti tamper legislation for vehicles.

Many people swap to winters for the season, wonder if this will be outlawed? If the legislation is coming from the EU, then I very much doubt it. A further complication is that OEM tyres on BMW’s are run flats. My summer tyres are not. I got rid of the RFT’s as they are bloody awful. Our last 3 ser...
