Re: DIY LSx

OK, thank you Paul.

Yes I would appreciate it if you could let me know which is the correct cable for LS2. Thinking about it, the other option could be to buy a single run of LS3 and reterminate, obviously that would negate any guarantee or upgrade options.

DIY LSx

My daughter needs some short speaker cables for her system and I want to try and make up some DIY LS1 or LS3. Is it possible to find out what type of wire is used or is it a trade secret? The other option could be to go for a doubled up version of LS2, after making up a DIY version of these I think ...

Re: Last night a the proms

I didn't watch it but I really enjoyed last Friday's performance with Anoushka Shankar.

I might watch the last night on iPlayer as Vaughan Williams is my favourite classical composer.

Re: Want to buy: NVA Cables.

I've just remembered that I've got some very short SC cables somewhere, 40cm I think. Would they be any good to you ?

Re: Discogs - by Collectors, for Collectors

Discogs is excellent for tracking down specific releases as it lists many different versions of the same title from various territories and years. Although I have recently read about sellers listing items for sale under the first available entry I haven't personally received the wrong item yet. I fi...

Re: Do lyrics make sense?

And then there's that other 60s waltz, 'Delilah', you know it. But what does I saw the flickering shadows of love on her blind mean? I know it sound dramatic, but what were they doing? Indonesian Shadow puppets? Well yes in a sense. If there was a lamp behind her then a silhouette could have been s...

Re: AP20 volume

Is your AP20 already fitted with HP socket? If yes the it is a case of finding right resistor to match with your headphones. Stu - depending on age ( and internal layout ) some AP20 can be fitted with SA - it would involve swapping volume control with input selector tough so front markings would be...
