  1. Hi Dave,

    No worries. Should you wish to replace the remaining ECC83s in your amp, with the same types, let me know, and I'll search through my various contacts. Usually, I can obtain pretty much anything!

    My email address is:

    All the best,

  3. Hi Dave,

    Glad you like them. They're an early Christmas pressie from me, so enjoy!

    They are NOS Marconi/Philips Miniwatt chrome plate ECC83, from the 60s, and very nice tubes indeed. You can still find them on eBay, but trust me, unless they develop a fault, you won't need to replace them for YEARS, so in terms of emission levels, you've got nothing to worry about.

    They were made when valves were properly built!

    Have fun.

    All the best,

    Hi Marco
    I want to thank you for the two ECC83 valves you left with me. My immediate sensation was extra clarity and an improvement in the tightness of the sound stage. Living with these for the week and a bit has only confirmed my original feeling.

    The only problem is where replacements may be found.

    Can you tell me again what these valves are? I did not fully understand your introduction to them!

  5. Hi Natalie,

    Nice to hear from you. Sounds interesting, so keep me posted. If I'm free when you're planning on doing it, I'll pop up and bring my deck with me

    Hi Marco, Dom and I attended the Whittlebury hall show. Anyway, whilst there we listened to some very impressive valve amps from Ikon, the guy is come down on Friday with some of his collection. Dom is going to be a possible dealer. He is also going to have is 301 in a plinth and do some work on the technics. So I was wondering if you would like to come down with your technic and have a listening session. i plan on inviting a couple of others, but it wont be a bake off as such, just a few avid vinyl buffs, I'm not sure when it will be and I will let you know in advance. Let me know what you think.

    Regards Natalie
  7. Hi Marco, Can I just say how much entertainment I am currently getting from 'KrautRock' please don't ban him too soon as his comments are obviously meant to inflame and are so lame they are quite comical. Just a thought...

    Hello Marco

    I'm brand new here from Germany and try to find infos for modifying the SL-1210. I get a new JELCO SA-750D with a full revision check and new through-going cabels. Would be a SME 309 a much better sound for the 1210 in your view? Now i'm also looking for a PSU, and find so far the ones from KAB, Soundhifi & Origin Live. The guy how is helping me with the JELCO is checking now Dr. Fuss who is called one of the PSU expert for turntables here in Germany. The price would be approximately around 250 .

    In your posts i read you are going really deep in to the subject, but i think that would be too expensive for me. I just would like to know, what are for you the main important things to when you upgrade a 1210 where you make the biggest steps for a better sound.

    Thank you

  10. Hi Natalie,

    You can't really post without registering, other than sending visitor messages, like this. Best therefore just to share Dom's account and sign your contributions with your own name.

    What's the problem with the SL-1200? Don't expect it to sound great in stock form - it needs a fair bit of work before it becomes a serious T/T!
