  1. I also live in Kendal and would love to know the details of these stunning photos (camera, settings, lenses, filters etc.) in the hope that I may also be able to take something vaguely similar. You came to the Lakes at the time of year when there are odd days where it is particularly jaw droppingly beautiful particularly the calmness of the lake (or mere).
  2. Very much agree with above. Also try Wilkinson's Hi-fi at Nelson n/r Burnley https://www.wilkinsons.tv/ Owned by two brothers who love hifi. Most repairs/refurbs done by Andy with David specialising in valve equipment. A brilliant get together in their listening room on a Saturday afternoon with local hifi enthusiasts often with a themed technical talk by one of the brothers.
  3. Hi I am interested in buying your amplifier. PM sent. Is the amp 110V or 240V or switchable?
  4. Thanks Nigel for a great afternoon with great company, hifi, music and pies. Would highly recommend anyone to contact Nigel with a view to renting his immaculate mancave for a few days and have a listen to his systems. As the afternoon wore on, got to like the ATC speakers more and more.
  5. Are you sure that you don't want EL84s but EL34s for your Radford?
  6. Other than polishing with a good wax and possibly sponging down the grill covers with a damp cloth, if you don't want to reduce their value, then leave them alone. The driver units don't have a foam surround and the cross-over units should still be ok. Find an amp to play them but note they are 16ohm impedance. As they have been stood for a long time (hopefully in a dry place) you will find that after a couple of weeks they will have just got better and better. Enjoy; you have a super pair of speakers.
  7. The website address is www.aquadthingaudio.wix.com/5763 Phone Andy Jones 0116-239-2373 or 07711 687245 The owners of Quadthing Audio and One Thing Audio are cousins working in 'partnership'.
  8. I have a boxed SPU with Ortofon printed test results are dated 1984. It is a stereo version in G type headshell. Plays superb. Asking £400 PM me if of interest.
  9. If you PM me I should be able to find you some. How many do you need?
  10. I have approx 12 x Telefunken and 80 x Mullard used ECC83s (white label, yellow label and long plate) all have which have been tested on my AVO MkIV valve tester and no problem to find you a closely matched pair. PM me if interested. Amazingly I made this same response to a similar enquiry on the AOS forum this morning. Mike
  11. I'm a big fan of Mike Powell but if he is busy then try Wilkinson Hi-Fi at Nelson near Burnley. https://www.wilkinsons.tv/ There is a regular get together of hifi enthusiasts every Saturday in their listening room. Lots of high end, vintage and valve stuff.
  12. If you Google it you will find lots of pictures of these speakers + YouTube videos.
  13. Just bought a pair of these 1970s speakers at auction because I had never seen or even heard of them before and the build quality looked excellent. Now playing them and can't believe how good they sound (hence the posting). Rated at 120W. 3 way with adjustable tweeter and 12" dia. base driver. Has anybody any experience or info on them. Just another example of there being masses of very high quality hifi out there at really crazy cheap prices.
  14. Yes to some extent but not quite sure if it has not been messed about with by previous owners in the last 60+ years. Would be nice to know the original specified values, voltage ratings and tolerances of components etc.. The input/driver valves are ECC82 and ECC83.
