Hi!

My grateful thanks to Dave McMahon & Steve for taking the trouble to send me CD1400 Pictures and the CX1571 pages, plus all the RIAA Preamplifier design and theory information!

I am using the CD1400 information provided by Dave to make a new "Early Versions" Supplement Booklet that will be uploaded when completed – I've begun work on revised circuit diagrams to cover the differences found by Dave, compared to the standard units!

Hi,

I just wanted to say thanks to Ed Dinning. He collected and dropped off some stuff from me yesterday, and had chance to have a chat in person. Generous, helpful and interesting chap who I think embodies the spirit of this forum!

Thanks Ed.

Thanks to all participating in this thread, the disposal of assorted redundant kit from "Woodchips". Although Bob had given us the stuff FOC, I decided to request a small charity donation for each item to ensure that those bidding genuinely wanted/needed the stuff.

Thanks to your generosity (and Bob's!), the Salvation Army is now better off to the tune of £47.00.

Thanks very much to Andy (Diabolical Artificer) for the valves and sockets, and his hospitality and his ideas and insight during our chat. What a nice quiet part of the country he lives.

I am eternally grateful to ParcGwyn for the contribution of an SC/MP microprocessor chip for my latest project. For the first time in 35 years I have a real SC/MP NBIL computer, I have a test bench for code which up until now has only been tested under emulation conditions. More immediately, I was able to test a solution to a 44 year old problem!

Despite these ICs attracting real money in another place, ParGwyn flatly refused to accept payment. The forum spirit at its best!

Re: The Thanks Thread
 
Thanks to David (Backtoreality) for giving me a Cossor 501 case are wrapping it so expertly that I think it would have arrived in one piece, even via Beirut. Thanks for all that time and trouble.

A big thanks to Woodchips for the most excellent Tek current probe. It works perfectly (after fixing a loose connection in the power supply to the 134) - see attached, upper trace is cal voltage waveform, lower is current probe waveform, spot on at 30mA!

Reelman 14th Aug 2020 12:24 pm

Re: The Thanks Thread
 
Many thanks to David, Radio Wangler for the transistors just received. Totally unprompted, he had seen a post of mine expressing interest in a project and sent the transistors to help me out at no cost to myself.
David is a backbone of this forum for many reasons and I am very grateful.
