Having heard Murray's amps the "Heath Robinson" looks wouldn't bother me one little bit - they sound better than anything else i've heard.

Now dismantled, because it took up a large proportion of my lounge.

Looks aren't everything! You can always turn the lights out!

What did it sound like and did it have a remote?

Sound was ok, i did so much fiddling, that sometimes it was wonderful, sometimes it was crap. I did learn a lot about cause and effect though

Did'nt need a remote, you kind of had to walk amongst it!

I saw a pic of something like that but about 4x bigger, cant remember where though.

But seriously though Pete, I bet at its best, that suonds awesome...

Nice work, if a little messier than mine. Having said that, you may have noticed on my KEL84 thread, I hav'nt posted any pics of the inside of mine. The wiring is yet to be tidied up.....

ha ha

Nice one !!

ps: itis Pete isnt it ??

Hiya, Yeah, it is Pete, you're Rikki, is that right?

Wouldn't worry too much about messy wiring - perhaps suprisingly, it can often be an advantage because it reduces hum coupling - that's my excuse anyway!

Sounds like you're loving the KEL84 - I heard it at the show and it was one of the few things that impressed me, perhaps not as refined as the mega-$ stuff, but musically it was right on the nail for me.

I bet you'll never be able to buy an amp in a shop again...
