  1. Have you tried optical connection for audio? Tends to be clean from noise.
  2. Well my music source of choice at the minute is charity shops. Recently picked up 16 Jazz CDs for the princely sum of £4 I won't be rushing to look for them on Vinyl. Once you get your system good enough there is very little sound difference between media.
  3. Have a look here https://www.hifirepair.co.uk/shop
  4. I have 2 MC cartridges on the go currently a Hana SL and a modded Denon DL103 Rehoused in a Cocobolo body to match the Apparition 12" tone arm with a Shibata stylus. The Denon is installed currently. I have to say it's the winner. The Hana is very good but a bit polite and neutral. The Denon tracks brilliantly with the Shibata and has more punch and excitment. Just gives more life to the music.
  5. Did you wind some of those inductors yourself?
  6. Now that really is a man cave! There could be Trolls lurking down the back and you wouldn't know.
  7. This is getting quite surreal, ornaments, workout space in a garage, bowls of porridge. Perhaps I should show the speakers in the downstairs Loo for those long periods sitting? (Have I spelt that right?)
  8. Not convinced of the viability of a format without overnight stay. It's just too much faff to fit into one day. We just need to find a suitable central UK venue. I'm sure one of these seedy hotels currently running on asylum seeker takeover could accomodate us.
  9. So the isolation radio tray came this morning. Package still sealed from the year dot. As you suggested isolation units full encased in greas and in mint condition. I don't have a use for it yet but I'll hang on till the need arises. Do you know what weight each of the mounts is optimised for?
  10. All ancient stuff but it sounds pretty good.
  11. Judging by the last bake off I went to - to annoy you by being big, cumbersome and too short.
  12. I've seen a video of that but never seen one in the metal. Do tell us how you get on with the refurb.
  13. You've convinced me! I don't need any isolators at the moment but I thought it would be interesting to try. One ordered.
  14. When I went off to Uni we were all keen to get a HiFi. Standard setup was a Sansui AU101 with a Pioneer PL12D plus speakers of choice.
  15. I think it was the flat aboves under floor heating
