Default Hello from Wales

Hello from North East Wales - not too far from Chester, England.

I have quite an old system. Since 1979 I've had a Rega Planar 2, a Sugden A48-II amp and T48 tuner, Linn Index 2 speakers. Elite EEI 500 cartridge but fearing the stylus is worn, I now use a Nagaoka MP10 with solid body. Arcam Alpha 3 and Tannoy 605's on my computer. Also have 'custody' of my brother's Heybrook TT2 turntable while his kids grow up (+ Linn Basik LV-V and A&R P77). Also a Leak Stereo 70 amp on loan from a colleague.

I would love to build myself some transmission line speakers. I'd need to learn the skills, so perhaps a simple box might be better to start with ;)

Also, the Rega 2 has the now-obligatory broken anti-skate control. I windered about fixing that myself, but the number of tiny parts in there is scary!

(hope this isn't too rambling for a first post...)

Welcome to the forum

We have some of the world's leading TL experts hanging out here, Martin King, GM, Scottmoose, and i myself have a special spot for TLs.

A TL doesn't have to be complex, an ML-TL, straight TL or single fold TL is really no harder than your basic sealed or BR box (some people actually confuse ML-TLs with BR boxes)

Ok - so now I know the level of humour, as well

Hey, these archives are a massive resource, but they do take some wading through. Maybe I've not got used to the advanced search features yet.

The current search, to put it diplomtically, is not very good.

There are a couple of us on the Wirral if ever you are passing by this way. The other member I know round here has a pair of these with Enabled drivers.......
