  1. I made a Lecson AP3 clone many years ago with this, but it had some hum, so I never used it. So the transformer is unused apart from testing. It includes the metal top plate and rubber pads. At the moment the equivalent is £82 from RS (inc free postage), so I am asking £30 plus £9 P&P. If you want to pick it up I am in Plymouth.

    Science and Subjectivism by Douglas Self

    Does this description of a subjectivist's position remind anyone of a certain objectivist's posts? I hope this is an extreme position for it was proffered as a flat statement rather a basis for discussion.

    Speaker cloth alternatives

    I have used tutu fabric (tulle) which comes in funky colours. Visually and acoustically transparent.

    Snake oil

    Real snake oil is a hair product. My local shop has sold out; apparently it is good for certain scalp conditions.

    What's in your loft ?

    I have lock-up garage a few yards from my front door, so I run a power lead to it, more or less permanently. But it has so many tools in it (saw table, lathe, drill-press, welder, compressor, etc ) that I have taken over my daughter's garage which is next door. Full of motorbikes, rockwool panels, collapsible bike trailer, etc. Don't ask about the shed.

    The trouble with loft space is it quickly becomes no space at all! And it's actually WORSE than it looks!

    Messy? My wife says shut up!

    And whatever you do, don't remove the struts between the ceiling joists and the roof joists! It's rather hard to get the loft floor back up into position to replace them.

    845 replacement valves

    Ask Keith (MF1000). He bought my Ming Da 845 monoblocks and changed valves, IIRC. I used the Shuguang 845Bs.

    No, it's a theory, which is the best guess given current data.

    This has been round the block already. And his speakers did sound very good, when I heard them.
