  1. Hi Sotosound, there is a section on the forum covering bake off's and this thread within it will shed some light on what a bake off is.
  2. GP-380 Ceramic cartridge. I purchased this after hearing a ceramic cartridge at Scalford one year and thought that it would be a good idea to try one of those at home. Unfortunatly I bought a version that did not fit my turntable as it will only fit a Philips arm with a "star" connector. Doh! I have tried to show the connector star style in one of the attached photos. Purchased from for 73Euros approx £63. Price: £45 plus postage at cost. Location: Portsmouth. Also will be available at Kegworth for inspection/purchase. New and never used. Package has been opened. Specification: Type: Ceramic / Crystal Fixing: Manufacturer-specific Output voltage: 10mV at 1kHz, 5cm/sec. Amplifier-connection: Line-In Frequency range: 20.20.000Hz Compliance: 12 x 10 6 cm/dyne (100 Hz) (lateral) Material: sapphire, Stylus type: spherical 15 µm Tracking force range: 1,5-3,0g Recommended load resistance: 47 kOhm Weight: 11,0g Dimensions: 12 (H) x 12 (B) x 55 (L) mm
  3. Terry, my Myryad pre is up for sale here in the classifieds which I shall be taking to Kegworth. Chris and may be o int
  4. Gentle bump. Will be taking it to Kegworth and no doubt we can find a kind soul who would let it be plugged in and listened to prior to purchase.

    Hi Robin, a post Kegworth visit should be fine. My listening room should be clear of most of the junk currently sat in it at the moment so will be open for visitors.

    We sure do. Will be interested to see what folks think of the IOTA gear as it is sounding pretty good so far.
  9. Not being used in my current setup so time to move it on. Price:£390 plus p&p Location: Portsmouth or can be picked up at Kegworth Unsure of its age but the cosmetic condition I would rate as 9/10 The MXP2000 Preamplifier is the core of Myryad MX high-end stereo systems. Built in the beautiful MX Series enclosure it gives the owner full control over up to eight sources with elegant simplicity and transparent sound. The MXP2000 features: 8 line inputs, including a short path “Line Direct” input and two Tape loops Low-noise, low-distortion precision solid state volume control offering many benefits: No moving parts so no wear or “crackle” Totally consistent performance with negligible channel balance errors Signal-to-noise ratio improved at low volumes Precise and repeatable setting of volume - in 0.5dB steps Channel balance adjustments can be made without affecting sound quality Volume “trim” level can be set individually for each input to allow all sources to sound equally loud DC coupled throughout 5 separate power supply regulators, each optimised for its individual task Two pairs of Line outputs to allow, for example, bi-amping Bright blue Vacuum Fluorescent Display (VFD), shows selected input and volume setting in 0.5dB steps and allows access to setup menus Large rotary control for volume and menu navigation Menu allows individual level trims adjustment for each source, re-naming of sources and precision adjustment of channel balance Myryad “Smart My-Link®” for intelligent system operation with other Myryad products The MXP2000 is supplied with the Myryad System Remote Control handset which can also control Myryad CD players, Tuners and other Myryad products. Remote control included

    Some new stuff to play with arrived today. First to arrive were Douglas's (BoardsofCanada) AE2's. Photo of one adjacent to one of my Anthony Gallo's. And secondly a new Preamp and Power amplifier from IOTA All connected up and having a bit of fun comparing it with my existing kit. No firm conclusions drawn yet as to which is best/most enjoyable.
  11. So will selling one set of speakers be enough to restore harmony?
  12. Hi Mark, Can I register an interest in the stands if the speakers get sold separately. I appreciate though that someone may well want to buy the lot. kind regards Chris PS. I shall be at Kegworth.

    They certainly look very sturdy. Shame they are Plymouth and not Portsmouth. Thanks for the recommendations.
