Shiny brand new second hand things in my system today


#5758


These lovely things are sounding tremendous this morning, on loan from @crimsondonkey. Having one of those moments when I can’t try favourite albums out quick enough to see how good they sound. Thanks Wayne.

Oh, and other huge upgrade of the day is a pair of sports socks in the slotted ports of my Spendor S8e, tightened up the bass nicely.

I thought the socks might work :slightly_smiling_face:

Just looking for audiophile socks online.

I have some silver thread ones I’m not using.
Yours for £259.
I just want back what I paid for them.

#5764

#5766

Sorry, needs to be way more expensive before I believe it makes a difference


#5767

#5768

Excellent idea


#5769

Audio Note could re-badge them for you for a fee I imagine.

So pleased to see them sounding good , will you be using the matching pre amp too ?


#5772

With a bit of luck I will give it a try. Very surprised how well these work in my system, providing enough current for my sleepy Spendors.

I need to sort the mains/grounding in my system, I had a some speaker buzz until I connected one mono via an extension lead to another room:roll_eyes:

Wife unimpressed by trailing cables, but sounds ace.


#5773

Thats a pain , wonder whats causing that ?


#5774

Probably just my cheap B&Q extension cables being plugged into two adjacent wall sockets. I am an electronics numpty, but guessing it was creating some king of ground loop, as breaking the chain has also cured a crackle problem when changing sample rates using my streamer.

Need a conditioner or a dc blocker or both. Or something completely different.
