    How many panels - question for experienced users

    I agree with the above comments from our esteemed fellow member above. Everyone told me I was putting up too many panels, I have 24 x 550w on a 15kW system. Best move I made. I think this is one of those times when it is hard to have too many. Another thing that may be worth thinking about is...

    Audio Research in receivership

    Interesting, I am positive that they will survive but in a different form or ownership. It l be a big loss if they don't.

    China: has brand China made any strides in the hifi market in SA?

    I have been to China three times. The first time was a VERY short notice trip with almost no planning. I got lucky, overhead two passengers chatting and one mentioned that they must change US$ to Won, in Singapore. It landed up being a very important piece of advice, changing dollars was...

    Also bought 2 big drums of HTH last year on Black Friday for about R800.00 each. I think I have enough to last me until Black Friday this year. I think I have got the running costs down as low as I can. Now I just need solar power to get it away from the evil Eskom and JHB City Power.

    I did mine 8 years ago with NCS Gel Coat. Got a light blue, think it was called sky blue. Looks great, the only issue I have had lately is where I put the chlorine into a leaf catcher I have had a slight color change in the past two years, it has gone a bit yellow where the chlorine granules...
