Open Sales / Re: Wanted - 70'Art deco light
« Last post by Adagio on Today at 03:49:14 AM »
Designer friend says it is "mid century modernist school", and specifically 1960's -1970's "space age designs" - the orange with white or metal was typical of a lot of the designs, lamps, furniture and fabrics.

Have a look at these:

Please take no offense here Gareth, though in my expert opinion would officially class this lamp here as common 70s kitsch.

Apologies again, though is simply a personal opinion.

Now Bauhaus design on the other hand, is a completely seperate kettle of fish.

Open Talk / Security gate woes.
« Last post by Adagio on Today at 03:29:44 AM »
Last week out of the blue, the security gate lock decides to pack up after around 3-4 years service.

Using all 3 keys, including the original (from both sides) the locking mechanism does not want to turn beyond 45 degrees both in left and right directions. (in other words, the lock simply gets stuck and jams at the 45 degree position when turning key both clockwise and anti-clockwise)

Have tried gently dusting the lock with graphite powder internally, though this has made no effect.

Any suggestions, - the local locksmith from Masterkeys has quoted R500 to come out, open gate & replace the locking mechanism.

Man this is an interesting issue...

One of the few DACs I never had an issue with and still use. Will make a note of this, just in case I get it one day, as I would have never guessed the solution.

Thanks!

Cheers,

Hi all looking for a Nakamichi bx 300
Let me know please

You have been looking for a while.

There are so many on Ebay just import with anybody selling via the global shipping programme. I bought over a bunch of stuff no issues, yes it costs a little more but you have it in a week at your door.

I ordered 2 the previous time they had them on special, have mounted one and it sounds great.

Actually sounds better than and old nos one I have.


Rumour has it AT recently set up a new stylus plant and there are some differences on the new 95e stylus vs the older production. 

I have only a b e and ex in ClearAudio bodies and I prefer the ex.  Its clearer and more open to me.  Closer to the real ClearAudio stylus if still not quite as good.
