Re: Do you remember...

I remember the name Kelvin Labs but that's as far as it goes, I can't bring any of their products to mind. The beast above looks to be a fair old lump!

Re: How important is a Hi-Fi fuse

I can see this thread is going in directions where I can't really follow. Not being an electrical engineer I really have no valid comment on why I think fuses are needed.. or not, and I doubt the absence of a fuse makes any difference at all. I've blown plenty of the little buggers in the last seven...

Re: How important is a Hi-Fi fuse

So what would you do about fuses if you lived anywhere else in the world apart from the UK. Do they need to clean fuses and fuse holders, does their music suffer because they can't clean non existent fuses. A de fused world would be fine for me from an audio point of view although safety might be a...

Re: How important is a Hi-Fi fuse

Fuses? Can't we find a subject with a bit of contention to it? :whistle: I must confess to caring about fuses, though not of the "Audiofail" variety. If I have a plug apart I look at the fuse, check it's condition and if it's a bit Brad Pitt-y give the ends a clean with a Scotchbright before replaci...

Re: Why are some people so fecking right wing?

Using single words to distort reality goes beyond the nonsensical. Both main US parties would be easily condemned as Kim dynasty fans by pointing out that the main elements of their party names are in " Democratic People's Republic of Korea". Right and left political stances are not governed by the ...

Re: Obits

Kemp was one of entertainment's "familiar faces" to me, if I'm honest, from the occasional production here and there. I had no idea he was influential in other areas until now. R.I.P. indeed.

British holidaymakers

I sometimes wonder why people do the things they do, perhaps the power of advertising and peer pressure. Sometimes it takes an outsider to see the obvious. I had a friend from St Lucia, back in the day, and I remember him saying "British people are wierd, they moan throughout the autumn about the we...
