Re: Soldering iron

Good idea to practice on something disposable first for sure. Clean the tip using a damp sponge, and then coat the tip with a small amount of the solder.

Re: What HiFi "MQA is going into administration"

I use Qobuz.... and basically I find close to everything I've ever searched for.... but of course that is only the stuff I would be searching for.

Re: MUNICH HIGHEND SHOW 2023

There is usually a smaller show setup at a nearby hotel for the brands that didn't get into the main show and that is usually open on the Friday.

Reading that certai...

Re: Free Quad 57s

Good luck with them @peelaa - they are a gorgeous speaker when running right. Get them up off the floor about 18" and pretty much vertical. If the HT is tired, do the diodes and caps in the power supply, check if the resistors in the audio transformer have drifted off. Put in a protection syste...
