  1. Wet some newspaper, crumple into a pad, (the more print the better) and wipe over the windscreen. Then remove wipers and wash both sides of blades in sink with washing-up liquid.
  2. Message sent, but I think your inbox is full
  3. I run a pair of 1.7 Maggies driven by a Hegel H200 integrated. Small and cluttered 15ft x 16ft listening room, yet the sound is sublime. No real problem with positioning, mine are about 2ft from the back wall and slightly toed-in to the listener. Excellent clean bass and certainly no need for a sub. Clarity without harshness, incredible speed, it is a speaker which would be difficult to follow. I have owned several pairs of Quads, including 57's, 63's, 989's and finally 2905's. None come close to the Maggies.
  4. Selling this Musical Fidelity A5 Valve FM/DAB Super tuner. Purchased from a Wammer at the end of March this year, but sadly no longer used. (Unfortunately living in the sticks, we have a very poor DAB signal.... so it's back to my old FM tuner) These tuners have 24-bit 192k up-sampling technology, plus a tube output stage, giving a far superior performance. Condition, I would say 8/10. According to the seller's advert, these were £1500 when new. I think I paid £275 for it, so would like to get that back. Comes with indoor aerial, remote and instruction manual £275 Plus postage SOLD
  5. A matched pair of TAD (The Amp Doctor) 'Selected' ECC83's. Both had very little use and still test as NOS on my Avo. .....£24 for the pair. TAD EL34B-STR 'Selected', very little use and still testing as NOS.....£18 Groove Tube GT-6L6-CHP. Very little use. Tested strong.....£15 OR £45 for the lot Prices include postage to UK address.
  6. Andrei, that is impressive weight loss and certainly an example to all of us! I could do with losing a couple of stones and have tried the low carbs / high protein diet. At first it worked very well, but after losing half a stone, I seemed to hit a plateau and no matter how much exercise i did, I could not shed any more. I am in my late 60's, so walking 4 miles, three times a week, is about my limit. I would like to try this new approach and before I embark on the fasting diet, I need some advice. For instance ...what time do you have your main meal? What type of food do you have at the other meal time? What low-carb snacks do you use? Finally.. would the odd glass of red wine be allowed, at the end of a busy day?.
  7. Thanks Ray, I totally agree. A genuine hidden gem.

  9. No, but a very comprehensive data book for this tester is available to download online. Just google Avo Mk1 valve data, or.... https://frank.pocnet.net/instruments/AVO/MF/100815_AVO_VDM_17.pdf
