Dunno ali, i dont know what they look like or who has them

I couldnt use my amp because the b1 wouldnt power up, just stuck a meter on it to see if there were voltages, nothing, tried again and then there were, and now it has decided its working..... a ghost in the machine and sods law

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

It is. when we had covid the people at test and trace told us not to test for 90 days which seemed abit daft to me
Kids have to be tested regularly for school though
Cant say its an enjoyable thing to do though :shock:

Re: Owston ‘21: What Are You Bringing?

Yep theres space to spare, they are awkward bloody things to move, but not so bad as they look size wise. So, we can fit a tt and phono stage in, mi dads digital setup, computer i think and i have a small dvi monitor so that should go in nicely rather than fetching his big monitor, the 45 amp, and p...

Re: Dac for an arcam delta 170.3 transport

Well the cyrus turned up today. quite a bit deeper front to back than i was expecting but thats ok. I didnt expect the chassis base to be plastic either but again no problem, the philips units ive had have all had plastic chassis. The cd tray is an awful flimsy plastic thing too. I shall have to be ...
