    Default Hello to all.

    Good afternoon,

    I find myself enjoying fiddling around with bits of hifi on a fairly basic level.
    I have an Audio Innovations Alto Mk1 that I pulled out of many years of storage, it needed some love so I replaced the power capacitors, and power relay and gave it a good clean.
    I'm using this to power a pair of JPW Ruby 3s which have had a bit of a rough ride due to a run-in with a poorly Rotel power amp. I now have them back up and running although at the expense of a donor pair of JPW Ruby 1s. Whilst they were disassembled I stipped and oiled the cabinets and replaced all the capacitors with Jantzen Z Standard and I have them Tri-wired. Source is Google Chromecast music.
    To my ears, it all sounds fantastic!

    Oh my god! There's nothing wrong with the bidet is there?

    “Nothing discloses real character like the use of power. It is easy for the weak to be gentle. Most people can bear adversity. But if you wish to know what a man really is, give him power. This is the supreme test. It is the glory of Lincoln that, having almost absolute power, he never abused it, except on the side of mercy".

    “You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police ... yet in their hearts there is unspoken fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts: words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home -- all the more powerful because forbidden -- terrify them. A little mouse of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic.”

    "You don't have free will. You have the appearance of free will.”

    “There's a war out there, old friend. A world war. And it's not about who's got the most bullets. It's about who controls the information. What we see and hear, how we work, what we think... it's all about the information!”


    ***SMILE, BE HAPPY***
