Nice work Gareth! Amazing you found two of them  :dop:

Good to hear you checked out the Audiokarma threads... I got a lot of help over there when I did mine a few years back and the mods are more than worthwhile. Those little low frequency rolloff tag strips must be gotten rid of to get some bass reproduction.. I also recapped mine entirely and got rid of all the "flying saucer" small signal transistors. The early triple digit series is just so solidly built and just sound right.. many say there is good synergy with B&W.

These are the little circuits which start rolling off bass at about 200Hz... one on each channel.. they must go!

Shot Gareth, you've done an excellent cleaning job there. My laziness precludes such fine work, but you have inspired me!

Whether he is guilty of these crimes will no doubt be determined as time goes on, from the recollections here and reading up about him he certainly seems to have been a deeply unpleasant stain on humanity and from his actions will no doubt be rotting in the Hell of his purported religious beliefs for eternity.  Hopefully more survivors will come forward and a posthumous inquiry can be held.

I have imprinted memories from serving in the SANDF and none of them are pleasant.
Magnus was not a favourite person of mine.

I must say that when shopping at Yebo in Boston, I always get my AVSA discount.
Thanks again for arranging this!  :2thumbs:

Better value?   Certainly well made, which I think is all you need

Listening to it now with the B&W DM1400's. Terrible pictures but the combo sounds amazing.
