Default Introduction

Hello

Another new DIY Audio member, happy to be here. I live in Cape Town and my audio things are Garrard 301/401/Micro Seiki BL51 and amps are Leak Stereo 20 and Arcam. Phono pre's are Nagatron HA-9000, Lentek and a Supex SDT 1000. My special interest is moving coil carts and I play music with a couple of Supex carts, a few Denon 110's, a Spectral, Dynavector and a few funnies like Grace F9 and a Glanz moving iron. Oh, also a couple of homebrew mc's.

Cheers from chilly and rainy Cape Town

Bulgin

Hi Bulgin,
Welcome to diyAudio! I hope the site takes the chill out of Capetown for you. Many projects on the go. May I suggest a large tube project?

Hi Chris

Thanks!! Yeah, the amp...I have been thinking along those lines...

Much to my own amazement, I unpacked a cupboard a few days ago and found a solidstate project I must have started 20 years ago. Most of the bits are still there but for some reason I found some of the wiring inside has been cut and neatly labelled. Now, if only I can find the circuit and the reason for pirating bits from it...

Cheers

bulgin

That's an easy one to answer. It was there.

Have fun looking around. There are several ideas in all areas of audio. I'm sure more than one thing will catch your eye!

Hi, Bulgin

Welcome to the forum. I see you have much phono experience. Perhaps you can teach me some of it someday. I've assembled a turntable using Technics SP10, SME Mkiii arm and Shure V15 Type iii cartridge, and would really appreciate some help in setting it up.

Cheers

Hello anatech, peranders, shaun & cal weldon

Through my own stupid oversight in not setting the auto login properly, I was unable to thank you all for a warm welcome at Diyaudio, although I tried a couple of times quite awhile ago! Every time I tried, I found myself logged out on submitting.

Here in Cape Town, the rain and cold have disappeared the last week or so and warm (up to 30C) weather and cloudless skies was much enjoyed.

Since I last posted here, I bought another relic from the past - a Quad 405 amp - cheeeep, like UKP45.-. I haven't tried it yet and hear the sighs. I do know their reputation and don't expect too much as I already own 2 sets 33/303's, refurbished but unused.

Some time soon, I'll do some work on the socketry and fire her up to see what else gives.

Regards

bulgin

Hi Bulgin,
Now that you have your login fixed, there is no excuse!

The 405 is a nice reliable amplifier. Let us know how things go.

Hi Chris

No problem. I'll let you know soon with the 405.

A good weekend to all.
