  1. Interconnects and speaker wiring are all you can do within your current budget. The good thing is that the wiring can be carried to your next system. Eg, I'm still using my Monster Cable Interlink Reference (the first one that came out in the 80's) for my CD player. Have ab'd with others even solid silvers but it still sound the best. So after close on 40 years I'm still happy with the interconnect notwithstanding improvements elsewhere in my system.
  2. But other forums dont suffer the same problem. Prob because they don't use the same software
  3. Then you save all your data on a disk or usb stick instead.
  4. What about diy? Good quality sockets are available as is better mains cable. It's not difficult to put together and then take it to your state's electric authority to have it approved. Now and then they have days where they provide this testing service for consumers free.
  5. with your computer, which you must have if you're posting here, it's no big trick to use a spreadsheet to list all your household items. Just do it one room at a time and allocate a realistic replacement figure. Some of you will be surprised to how much stuff you have. Sure, insurance can be expensive but if it all goes up in smoke wouldn't you rather have it all covered? You can't take it with you and maybe a large part is your attitude. Look upon insurance as part of the cost of this hobby (like petrol). If it's too expensive then may be it's time to prioritise and settle for something cheaper.
  6. why? Nothing wrong with tubing. If you know welding it's easy to do. What I did was to fill with sand to give a little more solidity. I toyed with using those steel fence post. Can get them in black now. Being angled and not hollow they should do the job. File/grind the feet to a point and you wont need spikes. Relatively cheap as well. Oh yeah, what I meant was star picket

  8. Just as a matter of interest, has anyone worn out tubes? I've a Raysonic cdp and the 6922s it uses are said to last up to 10,000 hours. That'll be quite a few years for me. Like to know how many hours your tubes actually lasted.
  9. Item: Audio Technica AT 6006a safety raiser Location: Perth Price: $100 Item Condition: very good Reason for selling: Unneeded Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: It's complete as far as I know. Will post Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  10. Item: Philips JAN 6922 Location: Perth Price: $60 pair Item Condition: as new Reason for selling: Surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Can only give you what I see on the tube which is PhilipsECG USA but no idea of manufacturer. Only used to audition for a few hours so basically NIB. Will ship at your cost, prob another $10 Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  11. It's up to admin to make the changes. If on a global basis, Google can make it work how come StereoNet has such a problem?
  12. I'm not a fan of the time limit on searches. Other forums I belong to don't have this function. Can you review and remove it? It's becoming quite painful and cumbersome to do search to look for stuff.
  13. Now, 2 tubes for balanced and 2 tubes for unbalanced. Whichever one you use 2 will not be used and these 2 tubes will not only be not used they're being burned out. My question is whether I can remove the unused 2 tubes without any detriment to the sound? Don't know enough about the CD 128 circuitry design to answer.
  14. It's not rust in the battery holder? In mine the screws were starting to rust and the springs of the battery holder rusted completely such that it wasn't making contact with the batteries. Lucky that the space is sufficient for a standard AAA replacement which I did. Just soldered the new holder and it worked.
  15. Hmmm, have I priced mine too cheap? Anyway, they're sold pending payment
