  1. I've always found that my system sounds best when I am alive and my house hasn't burned down, hence normal fuses are best.
  2. This is Linn that still produce new hybrid SACDs despite calling it a dead format in the link?
  3. No. If you were an idiot it would be noted, but the only people calling bullying were a known trouble maker and a sock puppet. There was also the awful behaviour of lending out equipment, inviting people into their houses and in one case from an identified bully holding a bakeoff specifically for new people.
  4. An output transformer would hide any difference in sound if it wasn't attached to a completed 300B amp...
  5. It's a Kontrapunkt, so it is at least a few years old and it is second hand. I smell the slight whiff of bovine byproduct in the description of how much use it has had, having had a previously much used B go off centre after many sides.
  6. A mid 90s Sony tuner I have shows about an 8dB difference in reported signal strength going from first switch pn to steady state (c. 10 mins).
  7. First listen to http://www.prestoclassical.co.uk/r/Naxos/8557766 Given the St Luke's Passion, not what I was expecting.
  8. When you are using a toroidal transformer with captive leads?
  9. On the basis that my system sounds best when I am alive and my house hasn't burned down, I would like to know that it won't fail in a dangerous manner before going near it.
  10. I'm starting making a gainclone with an offboard power supply (outputting +/-35V). The amp circuits, all input sockets, output sockets and power supply input at the moment aren't going to be electrically connected to the amp section case. I was obviously going to earth the power supply casing and reference the power supply 0V to earth. Should I also earth the amplifier section casing?
  11. The lack of insulation at the plug entrance should be an immediate warning there.
