Re: NVA feedback - what could be better

Helo Mick. Apologies if my question was a little ambiguous. I asked because you compared the expensive MF KW550 with a cheap as chips NVA A20. Not exactly a level playing field to be fair. I have undertaken a DIY upgrade to my A20 whereby each board is now fed with a much larger power supply and bet...

Sharp edge on the inside of one of the cap clamps on the larger power supply, had cut through the plastic insulation, and caused a high resistance ground fault to the earthed chassis, via the can of the offending cap. This must have been enough of a short, to pull excessive current through the larg...

Re: Doc modding Marantz imperial 7

This is what Doc loved Stu.. Chainsaw DIY and looking great for it! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Though having a fluted LP12 I'd have had the ribbed face to the outside just as a tongue in cheek a'hem, homage to Linn's DMS Briks :lol:

Re: Naming of DIY speakers

Ha thanks Stu, though I was a bit hasty with the acronym. "Cupods" could also stand for Cuboid Passive Omni Directional Speakers
