  1. One would assume that people using valve amps with valve rectifiers would understand the advantages (cannot see any objective ones) and disadvantages (quite a few) of the said rectifiers. If they are used solely and deliberately to produce a voltage sag then I would probably define that as a misuse.

  3. After all these decades of modern capitalism and all the advanced economic theory we are coming to a point where all cars are looking and performing the same. In other words, we came back where we started from - welcome to an East Germany style automotive renaissance: Trabant is the only car anyone would ever need or want.
  4. @andyr it was just a joke. He can start with the R loading and then decide if anything extra works for him or not.
  5. Since you started soldering you might consider going a step further and putting a small PCB inside with a resistor ladder and a DIP switch. This Pass Labs X15 setting will give you a decent idea what you need. Capacitance setting is only for snobs so you don't need that 😉.

  7. Let me guess - you have a Nigerian uncle who left you some inheritance but it is locked in an account.... For starters, you room is too red.
  8. Couple of basics about coax (SPDIF) and optical (TOSLINK) connections - they are often used to transfer the same signal. TOSLINK is just a converter of the SPDIF signal source. Having a light through an optical cable does not mean that you have a meaningful signal. It just means you have a 5V supply coming to the TOSLINK socket. My guess from your description would be to check the soldering around the impedance setting resistor on the board (as a simple fix). After that, the actual source of the SPDIF output. You would need a scope to check the TTL or SPDIF signal coming through when a disc is playing. Long story short it needs a technician to look at it.
  9.

  10. I will have a pair of 6s in satin white arriving soon - brand new never opened. However, they are retailing for US$350 when discounted - I am not sure how did you come to those prices.
  11. I am surprised how there was no quicker response along the "insurance loss" and "certified" lines. Maybe this forum is getting somewhere after all.
  12. Win 10 sounds much better - fans are quieter and quantum filed is much smaller . You cannot go wrong with it. Ah yes - the timbre is phenomenal. It bests Win 7 in every way.
