Bloody toobs.

Not enough, in fact any, crocodile clips. This is Rabs building his amp and hijacking Pete’s account.

Lol, not in our lifetime Bob.

Which will need a tri-axel trailer and a police escort to transport to a bake off.

Don’t forget the lead aprons.

Still takes some beating - as demonstrated at the bake last week!

Be fair. It’s a £300 kit pre amp whose linestage was still good enough to show the difference.:grinning:

Yes sorry, that comment was a bit thoughtless…

No worries. There aren’t going to be many phono stages at any price that are going to better the LCR one you have. I was pleasantly surprised by how well the Nobsound did.

God that looks sexy. WTS Allnic phono stage.

That’s some full on duelund porn right there.

Is my sense of scale fucked or are those caps huge?

I love copper, looks great!


The copper plate is 10 cm wide.
