  1. Hi Chris Thanks for the offer, I ended up buying a pre-built one. Cheers Gary
  2. Hi This is now taken Cheers
  3. Further information: Bought a good few years ago as a stop gap, used for a couple hours and been in a cupboard ever since. This is free (donation to SNA would be good) to anyone who wants it. I tried it 6 months ago and it worked OK, it will give a small pop on startup, dont have a preamp to trial it anymore.

  5. Thanks I'll have a look, bit wary of zero feedback eBay sellers but you've got to start selling sometime. The pair on headfi are too expensive for me. Cheers
  6. Thanks for the link, never thought of looking on there

  8. Thanks for the info, gives me something to think about Cheers
  9. Thanks I have zero of the above The articles say no experience necessary and the instructions are clear, but I havent soldered anything in 30 years and remember it took a while to do it well, so I think I'll pass Thanks for the info
  10. Hi Has anyone with no previous electronics building experience built a Bottlehead Crack amp. If you have, how did you find the process ? Cheers
  11. To me, more interesting than Buena Vista Social
  12. I went through a good half dozen Amps before I settled on a lavardin. Lowest powered out of all of them but drives my Olympics iii better than anything else I tried
  13. I can agree with the rock comments but for I found it more to do with what they are being driven by (ive got olympica III). I went through quite a few amps (buying and borrowing from @Cafad) before I got a lavardin (the lowest power in watts I tried) before they started to sing.. Best Ive heard driving the olympicas is cafads technical brain then the lavardin followed by cafads zeus. Hegel will drive them well but I couldnt get on with the sound, no emotion for me. Now they seem pretty good all round
  14. If youre looking for old stuff heres a guy I used to work with. He used to run Vintage Jazz Mart, looks like hes retired from there but still has his own site. I remember he had an amazing setup to play just any sort of record and electronics built by a mate at the BBC http://www.jazzhound.net/ http://www.vjm.biz/about-vjm.html
  15. Maybe also think about a surface tablet then you get the full Roon gui not the cut down one that you get with an ipad or android tablet
  16. Long time since I looked at it but have a look at snakeoil https://www.snakeoil-os.net/forums/
  17. I've got olympica iii, the 55w lavardin itx I've got drives them better than a lot of other higher wattage amps I've tried. amps not watts?
  18. Heard this on BBC Radio 3 Night Tracks. Flamenco and jazz, early music, baroque and West African based around a cello. The track Atman stands out for me
  19. zdigital is good but I have a uk and aus account. sometimes there are albums that are only available as mp3 on one site and flac on the other. same goes for pricing one can be cheaper than the other. they also have different catalogues.
  20. Further information: PROVISIONALLY SOLD This was my work amp until someome dropped something on the psu whilst I was on holiday. I dont have a suitable psu to test it but it was working perfectly beforehand. If you buy it and it doesnt work Im happy to refund (minus shipping)
  21. Further information: 18 months old, superb sound. It also acquitted itself very well as a pre/dac into a power amp Not using headphones anymore so surplus Have all original packaging
