To clarify the comment, which looking at it again wasn’t that clear…

I certainly didn’t mean the 5-10 circuit and the good work of the Mullard engineers, of which I have total admiration, but it was more about the nature of Sterns kit per se.

The 5-10 intrigues me so much I’ve something like 10 or more different types, including some really nice home constructed 5-10's
