  1. Hello Guys, I'm out of distilled water and have a nice edition of "The barber of Seville " to clean. What are the pros and cons using tap water, given that my supply is quite soft ? Have a nice day !
  2. Hello ! I own one which is on a postcard. an advert from a company making "BYRRH" a wine based aperitif. The picture shows the biggest wine tank made of wood in the world.
  3. Hello, I've bought some things from Aliexpress. Yes, the delivery time can be awfully long but you are provided with a tracking number. And if for any reason the package does not reach you, or the parcel is not fit for the job or as described you have Aliexpress insurance to reimburse you I used it a couple of time for item not showing. It was really quick. As per your Australian unit, if it is like the one on aliexpress, it may come direct from China. You will support your country buying from them. Customs, taxes and people working there. it's your choice. Bear in mind tha
  4. Hello, Your pump should have a label stating the voltage (12V, obviously) and amperage it needs. You have to buy a power supply apt to deliver 12V at the listed amperage or more (if the pump need 1A, try to find a 2A power supply to have some room). Then, you have to plug one to the other. I see that your pump has a red and a black wire. The power supply you buy may have a plug at the end of the cable. If it has on the case, you'll find the wiring of the plug. Now, up to you, either you find a mating plug and solder it to the pump or you cut the plug and solder the wires
  5. Hello, I've narrowed down my choices to these two carts : Audio Technica AT-OC9XEB and Ortofon MC Quintet Red Which one would you choose ?
  6. Hi ! Thank you for your answer. But as the goal is to test the pre-preamp, buying a high output MC cart is not a nice move, IMHO. But I retain the idea of Denon carts. Will take a look at them. Have a nice day !
  7. Hello, On DiyAudio, a clever guy designed a card for amplifying MC cart signals to the level of the phono preamp for my Apt Holman preamplifier. He was kind enough to share the design with me. So I have a device with two phono inputs : one for "standard" MM carts and one for MC carts. I would like to test it without breaking a bank as I'm not that fan of various carts and expensive equipment. So what cart would you recommend with low price and decent performance in order for me to test it ? It will be put on an SL1500 with an SME 3009 Serie II non improved arm, if that make
  8. You're welcome, there are plenty of sellers on Aliexpress selling exactly the same stuff with different brand names so search for PS-30A. If I'm not mistaken, it seems a lot of companies share the same design and produce quite exactly the same stuff maybe designed by an official agency of some sort. It appears so with an automotive timing lamp I bought 3 years ago. A friend of mine bought one without telling me and the function identically, are very very similar inside but different knobs and brand. Each part on one can go on the other ! Funny !
  9. Hello, There are some on aliexpress. I do know how the pricee is coming for people down under, but same price I got last year. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32902348578.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.1d021e6fJXfEmr&algo_pvid=284ac785-a231-4bb0-a01e-35e5fab349b1&algo_expid=284ac785-a231-4bb0-a01e-35e5fab349b1-2&btsid=0ab6fb8315926382504845188eadf0&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_,searchweb201603_
