Re: Pye Sunrise Radio

It looks like it's turning into a good project simon.. I'm impressed with your plans, I have a single (top of the range ) 12" full range wharfedale somewhere that would work very with a watt or two..

I've even got a phillips 10" 800ohm driver if you realy wanted to go back in time

Re: Dying Rectifier?

I have a few 37's simon.. I can test your 33 but I'd guess that would only confirm what you already know.

Re: The Audio-Talk Cycling thread.

I dropped the frame off for a respray at Argos Racing Cycles in Bristol this afternoon. I decided to have it done in the darker yellow colour in the picture a few posts back. The forks are all but unmarked so I decided not to pay the extra to get them resprayed (it is a lot extra as they're carbon ...

Re: TG "The Loudspeaker" Build (Sort of)

Morgan could easily fit those in his room.. but it's what suits your taste.
Some of my larger baffles from a few years ago where quite imposing. But I've now struck a balance I'm happy with..
Those speakers look great by the way

Re: EL36 SE Triode from ETF 2006 build

I had a radford mk3 EL34 amp I was very impressed with that at the time, I wouldn't be trying for more than a watt from a trioded el84 though

I've always fancy trying out my vt75a on an se amp.. one day ... id hope the early versions the one to use
