    Tonbridge Audiojumble Sunday 17 February

    I'm somewhere around 101/102. Have valve tester with me so can test on the spot.

    Leak Stereo 30 Plus

    Wouldn't it be wonderful if a company was making all that stuff in this country for comparable prices. One suspects they may fall foul of patent laws.

    VINTAGE CAPE VL1 VALVE MONOBLOCK AMPS

    It's usually fairly straightforward to be able to workout the circuit diagram from the amp itself. I assume it uses 6SN7's or 6J5's in the input/driver stages.

    Almost bought a Leben

    Very minor problem, a rectifier had died, bad luck really. Servicing amounts to checking valves are ok, little more.

    Almost bought a Leben

    Had a '600 in for repair couple of years back. Very impressed, one of the best built valve amps around, couldn't recommend it highly enough. Very tempted by the one currently on t'bay.

    Quad ll power amps

    It does make sense, so next is to actually test it. Another consideration are the QII's. There are many moans about flabby bass and other performance claims of these fine amps. The factory setting for these is 15 Ohms, when people are driving modern speakers closer to 4 Ohms. Do make sure they are set for 8 or 4 ohms, whichever is appropriate.

    Quad ll power amps

    According to the service manual for the SU8080, the rated output for the pre out is 1v, but the max output is 9V, so should do comfortably.

    Quad ll power amps

    How do you know it won't put out 1.5V? It most likely will, It would not be a big job to have it tested. At least you could try running them together and see how they get on.

    So, if you could go back in time...

    Tannoy Lancasters would be top of the list. Of course back then In was at college and terminally broke, so all my kit was home made. (except the second hand GL59)
