Yet another thread for the purposes of awarding a cockpunch

To my friend who popped around and said with a straight face that a foo mains cable made a significant difference.

I do have some foo mains cables but only use one on the Teac CD transport, because I can.


#8243

Branston, reasons


#8244

That and the fact he appears to have routed it through a ceramic hob, thus spoiling the hob experience for the owner. Wharra cunt.


#8245

Do you think he’s in a bit of a pickle…


#8246

I had someone come round here with a foo Russ Andrews mains cable and connect it to the external power supply for the motor on my turntable. The motor is DC. Give it it’s due the turntable didn’t slow down or speed up but he was convinced he could hear a difference in the sound.
When I asked how that could possibly make any difference to the sound he told me that he couldn’t believe I couldn’t hear any difference and my prejudices must be getting in the way. :grinning:


#8247

Once he left I presume you had the locks changed and then lost the key for security/Nutter reasons.


#8248

Personally, I’d have unplugged the cable and thrashed him soundly with it.


#8249

I replaced a standard Heybrook TT2 mains cable with a Russ Andrews Yello power cable once and was convinced it sounded better, until I changed it back again.

This was a long time ago, I feel better now :crazy_face:

My long awaited JBL bass units arrived from the good old USA where they know how to do everything better than the rest of the world, including packing two drive units, NOT.

What a cunt.


#8251

Hardly surprising there’s a dent if they packed the fruit in there as well :wink:


#8252

Oh dear, idiots…


#8253

That’s bloody annoying Bob. Presumably it was some amateur, not any commercial supplier.

#8254

At least you’ve got them. I sent a drive unit away for repair last May, paid for it in July and I’m still bloody waiting for it to come back. And that’s from somewhere in the UK!

My emails have gone from ‘nice’ to ‘snotty’ and will shortly be heading to ‘threatening’


#8255

Nope a commercial supplier.


#8256

Don’t understand why they didn’t bolt them together


#8257

Just do small claims, gets people moving.


#8258

Neither do I. Any sensible person sending 15" drive units would bolt them together, stops damage.


#8259

some spreadsheet jockey will have calculated the 15p saving by not using nuts and bolts for each shipment…


#8260

Thats extremely upsetting and pretty stupid, hope you get your money back
