  1. Hi all, So, I got a response from Earle. I now realise my mistake, I had the monoblocks on whilst trying it in the preamp mode. It solved the problem, I just need to reset the hum balance I believe because there is a bit of background hum.
  2. Hi knowledgeable people, I have one of those laughable beginner questions. So I’m back to the idea of getting a set of better headphones, but I thought I’d try my current set of Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 over ear headphones first. Firstly I wasn’t even sure if the Time Machine preamp was meant to be set as preamp or amp. My setup wasn’t ideal because I needed to use a 3.5mm to 6.5mm adapter to connect the headphones. When I had it set to preamp I got some horrible noise whilst listening to my turntable. I switched off my monoblocks and set it
  3. I have owned one of these and it’s a fantastic amp for the price, even at rrp. There are also fantastic gains to be made by tube rolling. GLWTS
  4. Item: WTB: GPU for HD gaming. Price Range: upto $200 Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: Built a i7 10700K rig, but need a gpu that will do full HD gaming and not prepared to pay the current stupid money for new cards. Let me know if you’ve got something laying around. Also willing to swap for the pair of Cerious Technologies liquid ceramic rca’s I’m advertising at the moment. cheers, Peter Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible. (You can now delete this text).
  5. Further information: Cerious Technologies Liquid Ceramic Composite RCA I bought these as backup because they so rarely come up for sale. I did try this pair briefly, but changed my setup and they are no longer long enough. The reason for the cheap price is that they have been repaired. The previous owner had one of the rca’s re-soldered and as a result that a new white sleeve was put in place without the original logo. (See 3rd photo) Here’s a link to the previous ad. Photos: PLEASE READ If you include any refer
  6. Hi DaveR, I have an old Pro-Ject phono box model that you could have for free. Only problem is I don’t know if I have an AC adapter. I got this unit as a bonus with a turntable I bought on here a few years ago and it’s just in the cupboard doing nothing. If you’re interested I can try to look for the power adapter on the weekend. Let me know if you’re interested. No worries if not. Cheers, Peter
  7. Thanks Red. If you ever find any of the above or anything interesting in your treasure trove or your travels, you know who to talk to. ?
  8. Well, the problem is they both sound like they might work. So there’s only one way to find out, everyone’s a winner. ? As I mentioned originally I thought they where $300USD per set of six with close matching. Since they are $150 each, I bought both. The guy has a a lot of orders to get through, so it will take around a week for him to complete the order. Now, I just need to decide if I want to pay an additional $30USD for USPS priority shipping over the $40USD first class international. Everything seems to be taking 6 weeks or more to arrive from the US
  9. Both look like interesting suggestions, although seem very expensive these days. I require a quad per Monoblock, that’s certainly going to ad up. I agree that GEC power valves produce a sweet sound. I had a quad of GEC KT66’s in my Weston Troubadour 350 amp and I definitely preferred them to the Gold Lions. ?
  10. Thank you for the explanation. That will certainly help for the future. Much appreciated. And I’m very happy to show of my new amps. I’m sure I’ll be posting more picks in the Weston Acoustics owners thread once I have replaced some valves. ?
  11. Here is a couple of photos of one of the monoblocks
  12. Could I ask if there’s any issue with the RCA connections? In the photos they look bent, not straight. Is that their design?
  13. Thanks for all the helpful comments, I am taking them on board. Just FYI both the Sylvania and RCA 6sn7gtb are $50USD per NOS matched pair, so three closely matched pairs as has been described to me would cost me around $200AUD plus shipping. Originally I thought the matching would be an extra $150USD the way it was worded to me, but I’ve now had it confirmed just $150USD for the six NOS. To me that seems like a good deal compared to what I can buy NOS or even used locally. I will also post a pic of the monoblocks soon to show the position of the valves.
  14. I was under the impression that matched valves are meant to be better. You don’t agree it’s worth it? Also, with your suggestion, you mean it’s ok to mix and match valves, rather then have them all the same brand, type etc? If the above is correct, that is something I hadn’t considered. Thanks
