Re: AVI Lab Series Modifications (less is more)

Helo Alan, I see you have removed the power amp output zobel and inductor. NVA speaker cables are low capacitance but I don't know what the figures are.

Re: Introduce Yourselves

Welcome Alan. Hope you have fun on HFS.

I'm a bit of a DIY nut too but sadly know nothing about valve designs. There are one or two that do though. Mr Lampizator is an interesting character indeed. I liked his view on building speakers which was linked to from here a while back.

Re: Pioneer PL-71 refurbishment (Stu Version)

The images in the first post will not show for anyone now because I deleted the first links and did them all again. They should show on this page though.
