Yeah, but for the 2 or 3 months of nice weather, we get 9 months of 100 degrees F with 90% humidity. No one wants to come here in August.

I have a nice looking pair of Canadian GE 45's that have open filaments due to my stupidity. Been saving them for 5 years.

Default Merry Christmas All

A very kind Russian person is sending me my Chrissy present. I met him on ebay, where all good people meet.

What a coincidence! A very kind Nigerian gentleman, with whom I became acquainted by email, has promised me a generous present. Could run into millions! All I have to do is cover a few initial expenses, and soon I'll be laughing (or somebody will, anyway). Isn't the Internet wonderful?

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone!

Time to break out the ribbon and glitter glue George . I think I just started a tradition tonight. My tube tree ornaments were a big hit, and since I have a ton of defective old tubes that were part of lot I bought some time ago, I think I'll be doing this again. I used an assortment of different tubes this batch..101's, 24A's, 80's ect. My favorites were the 24A's.

Happy Xmas to everybody!!

I finished my present to me last night - a 10Y preamp! This is so much better than any other preamp tube I've used - and I thought I'd hit nirvana with 31, 201A and 26!

So I stayed up until 2am - usual thing - going through CDs. Hearing stuff I didn't know was on the disc - as we all do.

And my 300b amp is built, with 46 drivers.

Just needs the DAC now, and that's pretty close. Tantalising! I can already imagine what's coming, and I expect it to be my best system yet.

Well - you have to do something to improve your system year by year! It would be nice to have a present of something, but since this is a DIY forum, I'm afraid it's all hard work!!!!!!!

Soldering iron off, getting ready for the turkey!

Greets from a very wet London - what the French call "The Foggy Albion". (They also call us La Perfide Albion, but that's another story...)

Haven't even fired up my valves/tubes, but we had a great Christmas Eve-supper yesterday (Christmas Eve is the BIG day in Sweden. Christmas Day is for sobering up ...)
Had a paltter with ham, salami and stuff from all over Europe:

I know 300B is supposed to be difficult to drive, but 46 drivers! Why do you need so many?

These days, I believe, L'Albion Perfide applies specifically to the West Bromwich soccer team.
