  1. The important bit, stylus to wax is a technics 1210 with a Stanton 500 cartridge at the moment, the rest is a mixture of Yamaha, Onkyo, kenwood and finally the speakers, which are Jamo fitted with JBL drivers and all internal wiring redone in good quality cable.
  2. Throw away your decks lads, the way forward is the Reel to Reel tape recorder.
  3. Snap, I normally give Chiffons & Florence Devore a spin on the rare occasion I guest DJ.
  4. First I've seen, not a very good photo though, issue here.
  5. The main drivers normally only go if overdriven, the voicecoil gets overheated and burns the lacquer coating on the copperwire coil causing it to short circuit or in some cases just stick around the magnet stopping movement of the cone. another cause is a faulty amp output where the output transistor goes DC causing coil problems as already described, the transistors overheating normally cause this, most modern amps are fan assisted cooling now anyway and most use Mosfets which run at a higher temperature without problems.
  6. Ohms dear boy, but I know what you mean, Adding a series resistor greatly improves most uses of piezoelectric tweeters usually about 47 ohms with a 10/25 watt rating, don't worry that you have a higher powered amp as the bass & midrange speakers take the brunt of the power so a 10/25 watt resistor is fine in series with the piezos.
  7. One sided demo here Dave, in one of the boxes, will try find and post pic.
  8. I thought you was there, we ended up kipping in an old church that had been opened as a drop in centre.
  9. Edy, were you there that night Baileys got shut down about 2.30 in morning, all kicked out onto the streets ? Remember Necko, Pearsy, Crabby, Willie and myself been there, I think you was, but memory fading now.
  10. Only thing I can think of now is the headshell connections, sometimes need cleaning and make sure tightened fully up with the collar, bit of a coincidence for them both to be effected though, double check any earthing connections.
  11. Are both sets of cartridges of the same type, ie moving coil/moving magnet ? what are your original carts ? make & model ?
  12. Tony A


    Took me over an hour to overtake this lot. as per earlier post above Edited Friday at 12:17 by mike nsfw image removed - do need to be careful with images as can damage the site rep
  13. It's worth checking the cable inside your speakers, I bought some Shark cable for my runs from amp to speakers and when I researched a little deeper into pros & cons for changing cable I came across an article that pointed out " if the cable inside your cabinets is of poor quality you can have the very best cable on the outside and it will not make much difference" I changed my cable inside the cabinets & yes you do notice a difference.
