  1. What Colin said. eBay is your best bet.
  2. This. I've made many cables using these plugs. They work better with cable that has a woven screen (I use the Van Damma Silver Series Low Cap cable). Basically just fold the screen back and use the clamp to squeeze it against the body.

    Naim molestation...

    Yes, for me Very easy. A lot of the modern kit available is now mostly SMD (surface mount devices) and whilst I can happily work on them, it's very much a higher level of skill required (plus the tools). Lastly. Apologies for the delayed reply. I don't get on here that much these days :-)

    Yes, bit of a mix and match though.

    Not sure to be honest, but fairly certain the 202 has the same circuit, maybe with a different layout..
  6. If it has ferrite cores in the inductors (doubtful, I'd be expecting aircored at that price point) they may have pulled themselves off the board. It all depends on how everything is attached in there. If it's hot melt glued everywhere then you may have an issue with stuff breaking loose. I'd imagine that ATC are putting stuff together properly though. Highly unlikely that you'll crack any solder joints to be honest.

    Seen these?

    I should point out I worked for Audio Excellence 20 years ago. They were definitely under a grand. Dynaudio Contour 1.1 were about the same price.

    They don't make em anymore, but when we had them at Audio Excellence they were £900 from memory.
  9. LPSU for the NUC and an Audioquest bug
  10. The 150 is a bit of a dog in my experience. You'd be better off with a Nap 90.3 (honestly) a 140 or a 180. If it has to be the new slimline range, then the 150X or XS is OK.
  11. Do you mean "rear"? Seen that quite a lot recently.
  12. They respond extremely well to "mods" too. I swapped out several capacitors in mine to great effect. Like this
  13. I'd agree with that. Had a Gyro for a (very) brief period. Looked AMAZING, sounded "meh".
