Re: auction tomorrow morning 11 am

Japan's probably the place Paul. I saw a pair of PX25s there 16 years ago for £1k. A few pairs would pay for the airfare, just don't put them in the hold!

Re: RCA Phono Plug Recommendations

I've had a look for the Profi Gold 1733 jobbies but couldn't really find any, only ready made cables. But yeah I'll give em a go. How much do you want for them?

Re: RCA Phono Plug Recommendations

Thanks chaps. I need at least 8 pairs so will probably try a few of each of the Neutrik and Truconnect and see how they compare.

RCA Phono Plug Recommendations

Anyone have any recommendations for sensibly priced decent quality but not audiophool priced phono plugs? I bought some of these: https://cpc.farnell.com/pro-signal/ps11547/phono-plug-metal-red-10-pk/dp/CN22493?CMP=TREML007-003 But whilst they're very cheap they're also really quite nasty. They fall...

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

Yeah, still not going to happen :-). We did reach a compromise though - we have no visible speakers in the lounge.

Those Lowther horns look much better from a distance... :lol:

Nice idea but fairly impractical I think sadly

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

"I'm not having that in my living room." That sounds familiar... I have the use of a smallish bedroom at least, but it doubles as my office/storage room. And it's perhaps a bit small for larger speakers. But the biggest challenge is getting the weight of big heavy speakers up the stairs.

Re: Mofo

Thanks Misty. It's a bit too smart to fit in in my play room, but I aspire to bring the rest of it up to a similar standard! I got the CPU cooler idea from Steve S. They're 12V powered from a small 12V SMPS with buck converters to wind the voltage down to reduce fan noise. They're running about 6V b...

Re: 45 SET

Re: Mofo

Thanks Steve, I've been trying to make more of an effort to box stuff up the last year or so...

If you do want to get rid of that old radio I might be interested, always fancied the retro look but never had one.

Brill, thanks Phil, I've been able to work it out with your help. £2.69 for two nuts hurts though! :lol:
