Re: How can this be done ?

Yeah, the terms and conditions are interesting. Delivery is kerbside. Look at the frequency response on the back. 20 Hz - 20KHz. I find thatlow frequency claim a bit hard to believe. Flimsy cabinets ? We love gluing bits of sheet steel plating to things round these parts :shhh: I'm of to read the f...

Re: How much?

I fail to see how streaming is a rip off for the artist. Sorry DQ but I fail to see how it can be anything but, if they get 0.5p per download they are doing better than streaming. Needing 161,000 streams per day to make minimum wage may work for a big artist but for someone relatively unknown it pr...

Re: How can this be done ?

How many of those "drivers" are active and how many passive radiators? The size is also interesting 22cm wide so those must be 6" drivers, which, if they are all active, might explain the number involved. They are only 33cm deep which probably means they are front heavy and at over 110cm tall the tw...

Re: Would you?....

Forget the arm but, it is easy enough to check the speed accuracy with a stroboscope disc and a mains powered light. If that is reasonably accurate it wouldn't be terribly difficult to fit a modern arm and cartridge. Obviously the mechanism would need a proper refurbishment but that shouldn't be too...

Re: PMC

I don't have a separate listening room and my wife is fine with Cube 1s on matching Atacama stands. A big factor is that they are close to the wall (where they work best). All the cabling I have is a different matter. :lol: I have two condenser microphones, an 8 channel mixer and a USB interface pl...

Re: Acoustic room treatment - what's your experience?

I have some experience of room treatment but not in a domestic environment. It does what it says on the tin but, in the large room involved, it wasn't enough. Keeping the curtains covering the walls between windows proves to be as effective but wall hangings will be required to really dampen it down...

Re: Dual mono or separate transformers for input- and outputstage?

To grossly over simplify matters. I don't have to have a full, wide and deep understanding of how or why something works to exploit the fact that it does. If you feel the need for a deep understanding of why using a larger capacity PSU may make an amplifier sound better please feel free to perform t...

Re: Dual mono or separate transformers for input- and outputstage?

Not a Albert quote. Doesn't actually matter who said it, what matters is what it says. In our context; just because I can't explain why it works doesn't matter, what matters is that it works. As an example, when I was at college there was still argument over exactly how a wing produces lift. That d...

Re: Dual mono or separate transformers for input- and outputstage?

So then, if having a bigger PSU for the input stage improves the sound, and there is no commercial reason not to, why not? Because without knowing why it improves the sound we are just guessing. Now some may not worry or care, but some others do. Lets imaging a situation, we start with a 75va trans...

Re: Dual mono or separate transformers for input- and outputstage?

I think we have to accept that the multiple PSUs for the Phono 3 produce an effect that Richard was intending. I hope we can all agree that splitting the power supply between input and output stages was something that was done for a reason. My role has never been to design power supplies nor for tha...
