Re: I love this place

I still have a Naim cdp and Linn LP12 although i am not sure the fruitbox will stay much longer. I went to Avondale amps and power supplies with a good mixture of diy thrown in. I am not a Naim or Linn sheep and am not bothered for valves. I dont get involved in arguments, plough my own furrow and m...

I love this place

Since i joined HFS i have not posted on my usual forum much at all.

Everyone give themselves a pat on the back.

hearing test

I will soon be arranging one of these. I had to have one of my ears syringed a couple of months back. I also had some very low level hissing in my ears only detectable at bed time. I hoped this would go away after the syringing but it hasn't :cry: I think this may be tinitus from my 20' and 30's whe...

Re: Pioneer PL-707

Oh, i did not realise that.

Who bought the 707 on ebay ? Come on own up.

I decided not to because of distance. After my Marantz speaker experience with couriers i will only pick up now.

The thing that worries me about the 707 is all the switches look to be push buttom ones not rotary like the 71. More to go wrong ? Also it is fully automatic - is all this extra complexity really needed ?

No magic smoke for me although i did once connect the raw psu to the output of a regulator when testing . Oops. I just love trying ...

Re: Biamping

I was unsure if the Avondale NCC200 could be used with NVA passive but you have proved they can. Input impedance is around 18k i think and obviously has input band limiting filters with zobel and output inductor. Les prefers active preamps and i have his 821A preamps board with psu. Might give it a ...

Re: The New Wigwam

I have never been a member there and have only looked in a handful of times in 10 years of looking at forums. If it goes to the wall then i for one could not give a feck. But if it is a source of amusement for you guys then i hope the fun continues. :epop:
