  1. It looks like Litz wire with individually insulated strands. There are a variety of ways to remove the insulation. Dipping the wire in a solder pot/bath is easiest, but most people won’t have one of these on hand. I’d suggest googling the other options, as you may find one which works best for you.
  2. The room is looking great Ant!! Sounds like a logical plan of attack Ant - I've found a noticeable difference when giving speakers room to breathe.
  3. Sounds like a plan - and the lack of a case means that there's one less thing for me to remove! Ha!
  4. Clay, I'm not surprised at all, given your efforts in developing and optimising your various DACs over the years. Absolutely fantastic news regarding the Wolfson chip and the return of the Kompakt - an ongoing lack of supply would have been a travesty!! I suspect there will be a widespread re-design of many pieces of gear across the industry which use AKM goodies.
  5. Here's a link to the silver one: ThermoPro TP-17 Dual Probe Digital Cooking Meat Thermometer Large LCD Backlight Food Grill Thermometer with Timer Mode for Smoker Kitchen Oven BBQ, Silver: Kitchen Thermometers: Amazon.com.au
  6. Nice one. I have the exact same thermometer set, along with a silver, lower-range model without the remote monitoring unit. Both work very nicely in my vertical smoker. Great bang for buck!
  7. I’ve heard good things about the Deanston 12 - looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
  8. Well done and good job! It looks like plenty of glue which has gone off and corroded several components, as opposed to leaking caps. None of that brown gunk is from the capacitors themselves. Electrolytic caps do not contain a liquid as such - there is an electrolyte paste inside and it is not prone to leaking or oozing in the typical sense, and capacitors absolutely do not leak or ooze anything brown.
  9. Great shot mate - the extent of flooding is just horrendous!
  10. Selective quoting there Andy For the avoidance of doubt, my post wasn't in relation to sound quality of Class A vs Class AB at all - it was regarding the statement around the amp operating as Class A at low volume.
  11. Yes indeedery... my thoughts are here: In summary, the Kompakt is an upgrade over the Klein + Kraftwerk PSU and is highly recommended.
  12. The CABAC equivalent is also very good (I use a few of them) and they can be had at discounted prices these days too: 1 new message (toolsandgear.com.au)
