    Interconnect build advice

    Cheers all in the end I had a set made for me with that cable it cost me a fiver extra inc postage than if I was going to build them myself . The end result is they are way better than I thought they would be and now considering changing all my cables to the same as I am so impressed with them just need to save up some cash
  2. After a expensive week getting mrs car and camper sorted in the garage I`m skint but need some interconnects after doing a lot of reading I am going for these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Van-Damme-Twin-Audio-Interconnect-Cable-Total-Definition-Directional-HIFI-1-150m/371683487712?epid=1739721347&hash=item568a0fefe0:m:mrF9Bn7rOgMWFzQX7Wl6CWw From a building poing of view all I need to do is solder the centre the core to middle pin and the outer braid to the outer part of the plug ? I know there is no fancy drain wire etc but I`m hoping these will do untill I can save some cash for better cable`s can anyone see any pitfulls in the way I am going to build them . Many thanks Gerry
  3. I have had a set a monoblock amps built running kt88 valves. So far I have about 25 hours on it speaking to someone today and he said I need to get at least 200 hours to run it in . I have seen run in tracks you can download for free and been suggested to use the pink noise version. Any pros and cons on the advice I have been given regards Gerry

    Power supply build

    Ref the electric shock it was down to a sparky who added my spur not wiring the earth correct !!!! I understand the building process all I want is recomendations of the best components to build it I recased the time step and added a iec switch,led and a on off switch . once I build it it will be fully checked by someone I know. I am just after guidance redarding the parts to use everyone has to start somewhere I have messed about with some electrical projects but allways get them check before use . ps I was medically retiered in 2010 after breaking ny back in three places so I spend a massice amount of time stuck in the house due to being on benifits I am not allowed to do any day or night school classes

    Power supply build

    Looking for advice on building a new power supply for my sl1210. I have been told a linear power supply would be the best to build I understand the basics of how they work but I would like advice on what toroidal transformer to get and would what be the best regulator to use from this site https://www.audiophonics.fr/en/linear-regulated-psu-c-6305.html Or if anyone know a better place to purchase the parts needed I have a original timestep power supply so want to now upgrade . safety wise once it is built it will be checked by someone I know . Many Gerry
