Re: The Audio Standard Forum.

I have never heard a more ludicrous question "why is price a problem", what planet does this Tigger live on. As I said, in that case I have a Rhodium plated copper bar *designed* :lol: :lol: :lol: that will be better than any fuse that could be made, so for them price doesn't matter so only £350 or...
