  1. A general question on mains power. Most of my equipment is the standard 230 Volt, however I still have the odd piece that is 240 volt, if using a machine like a Thor PS-10 which will limit voltage output to either 240 volt or 220 volt, which setting would you recommend. What would be the consequence of running equipment constantly 10 to 20 volts under voltage. Ken
  2. Thanks Mark, however they also only quote on "Pre Order' with no availability date. Ken
  3. Can any member tell me where the SACD versions will be available in Australia? I have been on the so called 'Pre Order list' at Elusive Discs in US for over two years, their website still shows the status as on as 'Pre Order' Ken
  4. Yes please, I will take it. Please PM your payment details. Ken
  5. A quick basic question for Kamado Joe users, when in use do you leave the ash scoop (little shovel) in place or remove? Ken
  6. I have a NOS unused still in original packaging A&R P77, will sell for $300
  7. Hi Cody, Could I have the following; George Michael – Symphonica (Blu-Ray Pure Audio) $25 & The Police – Every Breath you take, the classics $25 Ken
  8. Might of been double branded in different parts of the world in the late 1970's early 1980's. https://zstereo.co.uk/2013/05/23/aiwa-microsystem/ I am looking at mine as I type it is definitely Aiwa, and branded is Aurex.
  9. The Pre Amp looks like it is from the Aiwa 'Aurex' range from the 1980's. In the range there was a Pre, Power, Tuner, Cassette and a Receiver, they were considered to be very competent machines for the day. I still have the receiver, it is in daily use connected to this computer. I bought mine as a shop demo model in about 1984, it was put away in a cupboard and not used for 20+ years, when I found it I plugged it in and away it went, never missed a beat since. No oxidation on mine (only dust) I would guess that something like Autosol car metal cleaner / polish would work OK. Good luck with cleaning and restoration. Ken
  10. I was flicking through the channels earlier today, and realised I recognised something so flicked back to the Discovery Science Channel. A program called 'How it's made' was showing the manufacture and assembly of MBL Radial Speakers (Radialstrahler) It had already started, but from the section I did see it was fascinating to what the technology and precision workmanship involved. If anybody is interested in tracking down it was Series 14 Episode 16 . Ken
  11. I am gradually reducing all my gear, I have 3 pairs of mono blocks from; Denon, Jadis, and a Chinese pair using VT 211's
  12. Hi I agree with you that Pass Labs have a certain something that no other power amp has. I have owned many versions of Krell, Audio Research, Naim, Stax, Musical Fidelity, Michi etc. and tried Levinson and ME at home, nothing came close to the Pass Labs Aleph 0 mono blocks I had. They were 75 watts Single Ended pure Class A, before going to 120 A/B. I read somewhere the Nelson Pass still considers these to be the best sounding amps he has made and also one of the most reliable. Ken
