  1. If it isn't measurable, it effectively hasn't changed. If it has changed it is measurable. Whether the measurements are of any great importance, is a whole different thing though. If it has changed, and for the better, accept it, and don't bother with measurements.
  2. The soldering part is pretty basic. But you need a tech that is at least competent with audio equipment repairs. You don't need a soldering guru.
  3. Try Googling Tannoy DC6, or Wharfdale DC-6, depending on which ones you are talking about. Unless there is another brand that have a model DC6.. That's usually a good way to start.
  4. The link was just to show you where I got a copy of a Works example file, to test with LibreOffice. As for formatting, I think LibreOffice will do a pretty good job of retaining most, if not all of your formatting. The reason I mentioned formatting loss, was if you saved a copy of your worksheet in CSV format. CSV format is just a text that contains the cell data values (only) of a table, in rows, with columns separated by a comma or whatever character you decide to use. My version of LibreOffice Aditionally: The good thing about saving just the r
  5. I just downloaded an example .wks file from here: https://www.online-convert.com/file-format/wks And it opened with LibreCalc no problems. It would depend on how much complexity your sheet has though, I imagine. Edit: Once you have regained access to the data, it might be useful to save it as a Comma Separated Value file (CSV). You will lose all your formatting, and it will just be the stripped down data saved in a text file, in rows, with columns separated by a comma (or character of your choice) But it can then be opened by a multitude of applications.
  6. It seems they are referring to "Acoustic Short Circuits" https://www.see-industry.com/en/acoustics-the-phenomenon-of-acoustic-short-circuit/2/1586/
  7. Nothing to do with "us and them" tagging, just highlighting that some of these "tweaks" just don't hold water.. Well bluetack might if used to plug a hole in the bottom of your row boat...
  8. It must be one of those crazy audiophile urban myths. Best to keep the Blue Tack in the draw along with your green felt tipped pens..
  9. Welcome Nick, and don't forget to thank you mum for having you too..
  10. Yes, just get a sparky to put a plug on a lead for you. Or if you have a local electronics repair guy, use him. 230V is the nominal supply voltage in Australia. Actually I have only just been able to get back online tonight. We had a storm and it knocked out part of the local power infrastructure somewhere, and our supply voltage was down and fluctuating between 80V and 180V at the wall socket. Not good for fridges aircons etc..
  11. Were the power outlets on the amplifier just the standard 240V AC sockets like this? If so just get your local sparky to put a new plug on it. There should be a sticker on the back of the turntable telling you what voltage it runs, if it hasn't fallen off.
  12. Do a bit of research on the net, and you can find a bit of information that may be useful to you. Here is an example of some useful tips: https://www.repairfaq.org/sam/cdfaq.htm
