Those original 'turn-lock' posts must be the worst type of connector ever invented! Total rubbish!

Nicely done, Dewald.

^^ I was just wondering the same thing? Drive through wash and go?

Nicely done though  :2thumbs:

I wash the amplifiers with a strong detergent and rinse them with the hose pipe out on the lawn... Actually I got a sophisticated machine much like a dishwasher...

Shoo ghostie.
Would like to make the AU111 shine like that.
Do you do repair work and restores on RTR and tape decks as well ?

Re: Recent work - Amplifiers and Interconnects

I recently received a set of balanced line interconnects from Ghostinthemachine.

Very, very impressive workmanship - comparable with the best imported cables and the price was exceptionally good.

I will gladly make use of his services again.
A real audiophile will eventually end up with the ARC Ref stuff..
