Re: How much !

I have owned both a Sugden A21 and an early version of the A21a (the one with the orange power switch) from the 90's and I have to agree with DSJR about the original version. I enjoyed the A21a though, probably my favourite pre NVA amp.

Re: Wot it means to have a bona-fide ProgMasterman in your midst

This is the key. When forums become frivolous and...bouncy and unpredictable in their frequency of plianc...

Re: Skip finds

I found a valve radio which my niece has as at the moment, I was able to pick up some distant stations on it but it still needs attention. She has never switched it on and only has it as an ornament really. Also a Sony music centre years ago that I stripped the turntable out of and made a new plinth...

Re: Systemdek IIX help needed.

Thank you all for your help, I'll order a 220 ohm resistor and fit it and see what voltage I achieve from the PSU before connecting the motor up. The PSU in that thread is different to mine though. I have 0.82uF and 1uF Caps and the resistor was a ceramic encased type. I also noticed that there didn...

Systemdek IIX help needed.

After getting my Systemdek out today and it playing for about 20 minutes it slowly ground to a halt. After some obvious checks of fuses it became obvious that it needed a deeper look which after some research is pointing me in the direction of the power supply resistor. Unfortunately the marking on ...

This was part of a celebration of 10 years of Matthew's record label, Gondwana Records. Line up consisted of trumpet, double bass, drums, keys, Irish harp and the bonus of...

Re: Bespoke NVA

Well Ithestone loves his and he is a headphone maniac. BBPSU / AP10hsa and I would trade the AP70 back against it. I would still need the AP70 for listening via Cubettes. Headphones won't be for my main listening but will be desirable occasionally, which I don't think warrants the AP10H/BBPSU. How ...
