Re: Passive pre-amp weekend

The P50 has been purchased via eBay with note asking for sa to be fitted and payment for the attenuator made separately via Paypal with note giving my eBay id.

Looking forward to receiving it Doc.

Re: Passive pre-amp weekend

I just tried to go to the P50sa page saved in my eBay and it is now saying that the listing has ended. I thought that it was running until midnight tonight.

Re: Bespoke NVA

The ultimate in this is a full split power supply version (like A80) using a stepped attenuator with the prototype BBPSU that has been bought by Ithilstone - STILL WAITING FOR FULL REVIEW, nudge nudge.
