Since this thread is titled "batteries", let's see how this side of things has panned out.

Firstly, power source....(solar panels of course!)

Now for the business end....

***************************************
Conclusion (for all associated threads)

This build thread/s has been a good read to say the least. But to actually hear the final product used as intended, is something else altogether. All the elements have come together perfectly for this alchemic task in such short amount of time. Yes, you could almost say it was "magic".

And yes, it did actually achieve 125dB as viewed on the RTA (and witnessed by yours truly). Mic was in front of the mixing desk, 8 metres from the speakers, with about 100 live bobbing bodies in between. (hard to catch peaks on a still camera)

So if his avatar name was the aim, then he has definitely achieved what he set out to do. Those that know him personally, will know that he is passionate, and does things with conviction and honesty. The loss of this SNA member is sad and I'm sure he will be missed by many. I hope closure has been achieved by this post, by all parties involved.

You can't blame a man for speaking his mind about dodgy back room deals.
I certainly be following his antics on other forums.
Glad to see he reached 125db! I've been telling him he needs to change his name!

      Item Condition: General is good, cover has scuffs and crack Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: noranda State: Western Australia Payment Method: Cash, EFT Reason for selling: Trying a Thorens Further information:
      A great sounding turntable (preferred this to the Technics SL-7 I had) and just a fantastic piece of design. Like you would expect from a direct drive unit gives great energy to the music. I got a lot of joy from this turntable and as a dad found the auto functions very helpful allowing me to use a turntable while handling dad activities either with repeat or auto stop. The motor starts up instantly and holds speed without issue. Stylus still good but with unknown hours, will throw in a fresh stylus though with the purchase. The cover is cracked and scuffed but would improve with some headlight polish. The fit and finish on this is exemplary and build quality high, motor is dead silent. A toroidal is used for example, check out the vintage knobs page for more details: http://www.thevintageknob.org/jvc-LE-5.html
