Many thanks to Analogue Man for the Goldring GL75 arm. Excellent replacement for my much corroded arm on my GL75 deck. Excellent service.

I would like to thank Barry for the 78 records! There are some great ones amongst them I have fired up the Dansette and I am listening to "stupid Cupid" I am ready to turn the volume down when Winnie Atwell drops onto the turntable I'm sure they wheeled the piano off with smoke coming out of it after some of her recordings!
Thanks Barry !

Rich.

Hi!

My grateful thanks to Trevor for the Dartron D12 scope who's arranged to meet me at Diss Station with it for me on Monday!

The rebadged "Mitte D47" I bought last year has a u/s mains transformer, so the D12'll help me get it going !

Hi!

My very grateful thanks also to Member "Silvered Mica" Wayne who has offered me a small jiffy bag of parts to help me get started on the Hedgehog Mk. 1 converter!

I will donate something to the RNLI on his behalf for these!

Many thanks to whiskas (Rob) for the Tandy 14 headphones that safely arrived yesterday and were very well packed.

As described they look like new/unused and work well.

Hi!

My thanks to Dave McMahon for a copy of the Truvox 90 service manual, cheerfully emailed to me in response to a polite PM request!

(Note:– not available "up top" – I did check first before requesting it!)
