    Grey or white Screen

    Not sure this will work but you could buy the 120" screen below. LINK Use it for a while to get used to the white. Then go get some grey paint and paint it. Then you might get a very rough idea of the difference between white & grey screens.

    SOLD: FS: Dynavector 23RS MK.ll cartridge

    PM sent with offer to buy. Could be good to test out my new Phono stage that is giving me trouble.
  3. In that video he thought they were a bit expensive and there were better speakers for that sort of price. One speaker he liked a lot better was the Event 20/20 BAS Active Monitors. https://www.soundonsound.com/reviews/event-2020-bas Seem at a good price here too if still available https://www.avw.com.au/catalog/audio/studio-monitors/studio-monitor-speakers/20~2F20BAS V3_special-price-event-bi-amplified-reference-studio-monitor

    Fuse confusion

    If you put a new fuse in and it does not blow, you can even buy flashy ones online. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/1x-HIFI-Power-Silver-Fuse-Tube-Audio-Nano-Fuse-5-20mm-1A-2A-3A-4A-5A-6A/231861837684?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=531098005367&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649

    Fuse confusion

    Its a Fast Blo 3A or 3.15A Fuse. How long is the fuse? Normally 20mm x 5mm.

    WTB: MC Phono Cartridge

    Maybe it just needs lots of hours? I have played around 15 LP's.

    WTB: MC Phono Cartridge

    Thanks Andy. Just measured it and it is 47K Ohm on the input RCA's. Right 47.05 K & Left 46.99K So not the Impedance setting like I thought then.

    WTB: MC Phono Cartridge

    Thanks. Is there any way to measure it now to check if it is 47K Ohm? I have a Multimeter and LCR meter. I sent off 3 messages over the week to the supplier but have not heard back yet.

    WTB: MC Phono Cartridge

    Item: MC Phono Cartridge to maybe borrow or buy Price Range: Not too much hopefully. Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: I have a new Phono Stage here that seems to not function correctly with my 2 MM cartridges. There is a lack of bass and its tipped up in the top end. Even vocals have excess SSSSSS sounds. It is set for 47K Ohms, its adjustable and this is it highest setting but I think it acts like it is set for 100K Ohms or higher. As I tried 1k Ohms (next setting down) and it sounded quite dull. So would like to try out a MC cartridge before I maybe think of returning it. I can even bring the phono stage around to some elses house to see how it goes on their setup.

    SOLD: FS: Uptone Audio Ultracap LPS-1 PSU

    Hi Petro I might be able to drop it off to you sometime when you are home?

    SOLD: FS: Uptone Audio Ultracap LPS-1 PSU

    Found something by John Swenson on SMPS and grounding The new 36W SMPS charger that ships with the UltraCap LPS-1.2 already has the DC>AC ground-shunt internally, so the above is a non-issue for it. (And as a belt-and-suspenders move, we also changed to transistors with 1/3 the capacitance of those in the original LPS-1--further blocking the path of any high-impedance leakage, though with a shunted SMPS there is almost none coming in.) In addition, some people have either done John's DIY ground-shunt trick or obtained a supply that is that way in the first place, or use a cheap linear as there is not much AC leakage from those.

    SOLD: FS: Uptone Audio Ultracap LPS-1 PSU

    Its the PSU that energizers the LPS1. The original ones you could mod them by adding a earth wire. The new ones are all ok. I will see if I can find the thread. Something about some noise would creep into the LPS1.
  13. Item: Uptone Audio Ultracap LPS-1 PSU plus new PSU Location: Tuart Hill W.A. Price: Sold Item Condition: very good Reason for selling: This is currently my spare Power Supply, not been used. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I am the 2nd owner as I purchased this from another SNA'er. Was powering my Singxer SU-1 with great results. I ordered the newer power supply recently as well, so this has the original PSU plus the new one. I thought the new power supply was a good upgrade from reading the forums on the net. Something to do with how the new one was grounded better internally? First owner, purchased mid/late Jan 2017 direct from Uptone USA. Pictures:
  14. Hey Steve, when that sellers remorse kicks in strong, you can always drop around to my place for a listen to my Holo.
  15. Some days my Stereo sounds kind of flat and bass seems to be less. See how it sounds tomorrow.
