Re: Plastic

It's just people taking a cheap shot.

They don't understand that good engineering involves the use of appropriate materials in appropriate thickness.

The chassis of my upstairs turntable is made from plastic. Does that mean it's cheap rubbish? It's an EMT 930.

Re: building a tonearm

How much did all the parts, plus any project specific tools for this arm project cost?
And roughly how many hours did it take?

Re: What was the first record you bought

Re: What is NVA

A couple of other direct sellers. Same terms as NVA. Audio Origami who specialises in tone arms and other stuff. Paul Haynes who does power supplies and other stuff. Obviously our own Colin Wonfer.

Re: What is NVA

Being ripped off is part of life and does not just apply to hifi. Last year we booked a fjords cruise for next month at a very reasonable price. It is only now that we are being informed about all these additional extras we had no idea were coming. We have not been on a cruise before and were proba...

Re: One hundred words daily (or anytime)

Wow, what an amazing piano / keyboard! I know this post is nowhere near a hundred words, but I don't think this deserves a separate thread, and couldn't think of a more suitable thread to put this in. :-?

Re: The PC boot up and getting to "work" speed test

The thing with Microsoft, is that they never seem particularly bothered about making their coding efficient. It always seems to be a case of "Intel can make a faster PC." And so, almost the entire computing world is locked into a cycle of built-in obsolescence.
