What's yer bits'n'bobs ?

Recommended Posts

Many many years since I was back on this forum and updating my bits and bobs...

Coronavirus caused eBay spending spree has resulted in a couple of new bits. Box count is going up now instead of down.

Streaming from Spotify supplied by Raspberry Pi with HiFi DAC attachment running their own HiFiBerry OS, works seamlessly. Needed to order some attentuating RCA to DIN cables from flashback though.

Series 500ish, phono removed, Juancho modified, gold valve bases, 5881 valves, balance removed, tape loops removed, volume alps blue, source selector improved, controls moved to suit space inside, and rewired throughout.  The original wiring was a bit frayed and heat stressed.

Monarch Turntable, Plinius Amp & Boenicke Speakers, All gone. Replaced with a fairly radical change over.

Jerry, wow not seen anything of you in ages, hope your well?

New house, new room, different needs. Heard the silvers in a demo and not impressed, way too bass heavy. The gold's were great but more than I needed or wanted to spend. These fit the new room perfectly.

Hi Ian - yeah, I pop in here now and then.  I'm very well, thanks, hope you are, too.

So what do these do that the Plinius/Boenicke didn't? ... or are they just more appropriate to your new space?
