Valves/Tubes / Re: Stepped attenuator
« Last post by gapco on Today at 05:01:53 PM »
The chances that two pre amps don't deliver the required line level is unlikely. According to the ST 70 service manual a line voltage of 1.3volts is enough to reproduce the rated 35 watt output on the amp. The PAT 4 service manual lists an output voltage of 5 volts rms which is more than what is needed.

Remember many Dynaco products where sold as DIY kits and were badly assembled by their owners.

Maybe the ST 70 has a problem.

General Discussion / Re: SAPO all my items stuck at Jhb hub any ideas?
« Last post by PierreM on Today at 03:15:41 PM »
Problem is backlog from that major strike was never cleared. Then, later, many employees did not get paid. Because SAPO did not have the money, even though it is funded by tax revenue money every year.

Except the CEO tweets a photo of an empty SAPO warehouse in Pta lauding the fact that they supposedly have have a clear floor policy in place. Difficult to reconcile the two... or is the policy only for Pta and for spam mail from Axis Direct and Wesbank? But you got to laugh at the video of the mail sorting staff dancing, maybe that is where your parcel is at.

Headphones / Re: Wireless or no
« Last post by LouisF on Today at 03:06:54 PM »
My main problem was that I did not realize "wireless" refers to bluetooth; I thought one could hook some transmitting device to your hi-fi and listen to wireless phones. My question is clearly answered now, thanks; I shall stick with wired 'phones.

Can one pay online with a debit card?
I am under the impression that it has to be a credit-card.

Would be great if I could, as I'm also not keen on divulging my cc details online.
I've had no problem with FNB or Capitec

This is the reason all my ISP and data services go on disposable (as in extra cards) Debit cards, only cost R35 I think.
Any banking details I give out are only my savings pockets, and I clear and refresh those every so often.
Just empty, close and reopen a new savings pocket, it gets a new Acc no. Automagically.

Once had a situation with an ISP where the service was Shiite. Canceled beginning of the month but, surprise surprise, calendar months notice please.
That would mean an extra month of madness, no thanks cancel the card, no problem.

It's not worth it for them to try to recover that "debt", and you can make it expensive for them.
