Re: Pioneer PL71

Pioneer knew everything they needed to know about building good turntables by the early 70's. Everything that came after that was either downhill (PL12D and PL112) at the behest of their slurping distributors wanting to cash in.

Bodges are because others take on NVA repairs without understanding that NVA is different. Nothing will change, it will still be repaired in EXACTLY the same way with someone trained by me - but way in the future I HOPE!!!!
Pretty sure that's exactly what Simon was saying was a good thing.

Completely... but, presumably it appeals to a proportion of men who had a train set as a child!

Re: Seasonal greetings...

Seasons greetings to all too. Special thoughts for DQ and his family.
I'm just off to work, & won't get home until after 20:00. Shan't see anyone other than patients & colleagues, as my partner is staying with her sister in Stoke.

Re: Black Friday orders request for delayed delivery and other notes.

EDIT - You can of course delay you delivery until she comes back :lol: :lol: I would be very grateful if my deliveries could be held until January - and not 'just' because I'm waiting for Nadia's packing! In case it wasn't clear, I am... 6805 visick123 (35) 1 (11 available) £910.00 25 Nov NVA A80 m...

Re: 15Amp AC plugs and sockets

Re: Black Friday orders request for delayed delivery and other notes.

Hi Doc, I see one of mine is at the front. I would really prefer to wait until January (or even February if it helps you) for my orders.

Distance between components

What is the minimum distance you recommend between components to eliminate hum - especially with reference to A80 power amps, Phono 2 (& 2x PSU) and P90sa pre-amp?
Obviously the PSUs and Phono 2 have captive leads, so I realise that is non-negotiable as it were.

Re: Black Friday

Blimey, not sure I was expecting 30% off... Guess you might be rather busy in the next few weeks!
I bought some interconnects on Sunday (just some SC & SSC), which were sent on Tuesday. Have just pulled the trigger on a BMU!
