  1. Recently bought a minty/used Nikkor 24-120mm f/4 lens, not the fastest aperture.......but so far loving it's versatility.

    FOR SALE - MARANTZ PM4 Integrated Class A Amp

    Would be good to hear this amp before purchase but impossible as I'm in Scotland etc... I'm sure this won't sit about too long.

    FOR SALE - MARANTZ PM4 Integrated Class A Amp

    Cheers.......so what's the watts output does anyone know? Selecting the 'Class A' button I'm guessing lowers the power output?

    Buying a Turntable

    If you like/enjoy your TT then have a look at upgrading the cartridge etc, or maybe a better phono stage. Peter

    Sharing my heavily modified Magnepan project

    Great work James, I'm in awe of your skills and experience to carry out the advanced electrical work carried out on the Maggie panels.The 1.6QR's seem around 7 foot tall (maybe slightly smaller?), a few feet taller than my old 0.6 Maggies I owned in the past. I like the look of the Martin Logan's also with built-in bass unit. Keep us all up to date with your external crossovers etc, love it..!! Peter

    Hi James; Have the new caps now bedded in on the 1.6 QR's yet..? A great project that OK, all power to your elbow..!! Excellent work. How did you know which certain caps to use...? How did you stumble across these speakers in a rough state etc..? I'm just curious... Peter

    Lovely speakers, seems a great price. I've never heard Martin Logan's but these would fit the bill nicely, not overly large for a room etc... Thanks for posting. Peter

    Amp recommendations for up to £3k for magnepans

    Excellent James! Which exact model of Magneplanners do you use/colour of cloth/colour of side cheeks etc...? When I owned my 0.6 Maggies (bought new from Cloney Audio, Dublin) they were an oatmeal colour cloth with oak side wooden cheek plates, eventually room size for me was a problem and they had to go, but my Lord they were excellent with imaging/staging etc... I owned a pair of 57's briefly after and thought they were actually slightly better with realism. Panels are simply brilliant if you've the space!! Peter

    Amp recommendations for up to £3k for magnepans

    Shouldn't the tweeters on Maggies be situated so the tweeter runs on the inside and not the outside...? I ran my 0.6's like that.
