Re: Speakers

I challenge anyone to hear crossover distortion unless they know what they are listening for.
String quartets and brass sections are good ways of hearing it.

Re: Idler power supplies

The aim being to use the combination of capacitors that gives the least motor vibration That sounds like its using the cap to provide a 90 degree phase shift to drive the motor. AFAIK, the Garrard and Lenco motor is a single phase motor so doesnt use them. One of my "may get around to" things is to...

Re: Idler power supplies

Re: Phono 2 for sale

It's definitely the prototype you built Nick whatever it is it sounds bloody lovely and as usual is a credit to your craftsmanship. I still have the 300b monoblocks you built which need a look at sometime I will try and get them across to you soon. You know where I am. I wanted to get you to try th...

Re: NVA Update

Once again I've expressed no hatred. Nick appears to be confused. Probably a result of his somewhat biased opinion This one seems a bit close IMHO I've never seen such bile, naked ambition or alterior motive masquerading as analysis in my whole life. And exactly what bias are you suggesting I have?...

There is nothing we, as forum members, customers or just interested parties, can do without; grant of probate and Nadia's agreement. Several people have said this but it didn't stifle discussion. NVA isn't a co...

Re: NVA Update

As I've said before to Richard and recently, NVA could continue, it could also continue and become a more successful (financially at least) than it has been. Richard knew this but he hated marketing and all the growth that comes with marketing, he'd been there and done that in the past. The best mo...
