Re: AVI Lab Series Modifications (less is more)

Try the AVI with out inductor again with the LS5 arrives. Squealing does indeed sound like oscillation to me. My avondale power amps are running absolutely fine without input coupling cap, zobel and output inductor. Inductor damping resistor bypassed as well

Saw them 4 or 5 times now Stu. Always a top night out and if you close your eyes they are almost there.
I totally agree Chunk. Only Bruce Foxton left from the original trio but you wouldn't know it. :guiness;

Re: Last Live Listen

I just bought tickets to see From the Jam . Saw them at an 80's festival last year and they were awesome. The best act of the day. All the old Jam favourites and the singer even sounds like Paul Weller. Can't wait :dance:

Re: For Stu - a real farmer.

I was thinking todày how lucky i was growing up on a farm. Acres of space in the fields and overgrown areas surrounding of the farm stead. I spent most of my days outside or siting in my dads tractors. Summer holidays were the best, riding on the combined harvester or tractor and when i was old enou...

Re: RACKS

It reminds me of a codebreaking room at Bletchley Park! :D Oh yes, but the only thing it is breaking is the rules :grin: Excellent Stu, that would not be out of place on Lurcher 300b's forum. Why thank you Andy. They are not so keen on solid state thingies over there and i have not used a single cr...

Re: RACKS

This thread really does need photos, chaps... Right, you asked for it so I am going to hold you responsible for the rush of posts saying that they want one too :lol: . Pics are a bit crap mind you as mine usually are. The music centre in most of it's glory. Don't forget this is a rough mock up not ...

Re: RACKS

Never had a hum problem with my systems. In the past I used a couple of low boy racks from AV 123, but all that exposed hi fi gear is terribly unappealing. So when we moved into this house, I bought a Salamander Audio credenza rack. I ordered it with a pair of fans in the back panels to keep the am...

Re: For Stu - a real farmer.

The animal world is full of interesting noises low 7 high pitched. Cow pat audio as a name has not been used yet. I can see my chance. Plenty of farmers around here have anaerobic digesters that use green waste or energy crops to turn in to gas. Gas powered hifi is the future :grin: One farmer I kno...

Re: RACKS

You lot would love my experimental rack :lol: I will share a picture some time. 1.2metres tall and the uprights are made of old 3" x 3" fence posts. I have five levels which can be moved up and down. Each level is a 2 foot square piece of 20mm chipboard (more old ikea furniture) and my amps are buil...

Re: For Stu - a real farmer.

Hey he's knicked my best jumper. If there was a nuclear war and food became short i think i would be ok. I am closer to mother nature than most and could probably do a good impression of Ray Mears :grin: I'm only a part timer . Have other business interests too. But, oh how i hanker for a simple lif...
