  1. About to become the new owner of the classically Japanese Leben CS600 integrated amp. Any other lovers of gold knobs, and anyone have any experience with tube rolling this extremely versatile amp?
  2. That looks like Brumjam's refurb? Paul@RFC also did my Ta'us which had cost no object outboard crossovers and were exhibited at Scalford last year with a Leben amp. Congrats, they'll sound fab. The bruises will heal...

    Wammer's generosity and willingness to put themselves out and work for free on behalf of good causes has never been in doubt.

    Where next after Impulse H6's

    In standard form the Focal inverted tweeter of H2/ Ta'us will sound too much especially with the volume turned up to relatively loud listening levels. A couple of us Impulse owners have had the tweeters replaced and crossover work to make them sound better than they ever could in factory condition.

    Scalford 2017

    Tel has nailed it. What I and what many others really cherish is a fabulous Scalford show just like the ones we've enjoyed together in the past. No-one wants it to fail, and everyone wants it to succeed - end of. Well since 1 or 2 obstacles standing in the way may be out the picture then yes maybe it might be time - lets keep things positive and lets see.

    Six Pack - Anyone?

    You need to lift heavy weights to do what? I lift heavy weights but the key to a six pack is a low Body fat % which is more to do with diet.

    Solihull Bake Off - 18th June

    James, will your TT be running as I wondered whether to bring a few records? Also, and if there's other stuff you'd prefer to hear or its too much faff then no worries, but could I bring my Leben integrated as since hearing your Oto drive your H2s I've been curious as to compare it with my lump? It does have gold knobs so even if we didn't plug it in it would add a bit of retro bling!
