    That means not a lot to me, I'm a QANTAS guy when heading out/in of OZ. Good luck to him all the same.

    Ping @hindy111

    I know this is in your domain merkin, indeed I assume that you a bit of a amplifier expert.

    So I am looking for a bit of a project and am thinking that I might buy a 2nd hand tube amp or maybe a new one. Not sure.

    Anywho, WTF with Class A, B, AB & C amplifiers ? Can you explain in simple terms ?

    https://www.electronics-tutorials.ws/amplifier/amplifier-classes.html

    Also, do you have a supplier of russian tubes ?

    FYI there is some rumblings about a hand wired tube amp coming out of China, that when you replace the Beijing tubes with Russian tubes, you get amazing warm sound.

    I have a PSVANE but I don’t think you’ll like the sound coming out of it

    I am guessing your not wanting a guitar amp but home.
    Better tubes will make a difference and NOS are the best. I also like Tungsol for new production. Depends on tubes need most likely can get.
    Class A are generaly smaller amps as get hot but some say sound best. It all comes down to personal taste.I wouldn't worry about this.Your speakers choice will play a big part.
    With guitar amps a $400 speaker can sound great with one set up but a $200 speaker better with another. Depends on the sounds you want.

    Circuit design and speaker will effect sound most.

    Tubes will make a subtle difference. If it sounded great it may sound a little nicer. But I wouldn't expect if it sounded ordinary to take it too a great sounding amplifier.

    If find a kit I will build it in my spare time.

    Is membership auto renew?
    I am getting messages saying payment for 2020 membership. I am not even sure I want a season membership. Bit ordinary if its auto renew.

    Gronk will pay good money to "engage your services". You will need to take a week off work and prioritise this.

    Nothing worse than being buried in a coffin and playing that joke when you really aren't dead.

    And be carefull with watts. Very diff to transitor amps power output wise
    15-20w tube amp would be quite loud.

    I've been enjoying a coffee and coconut slice of late.
    I take a sip of my coffee then a bite of my coconut slice. Occassionally I will go two sips of coffee to the one bite.
    It is all about rationing it so don't run out of either.
    No big bites and no big sips

    I’ve noticed that there is also an emerging trend to utilise the OS called Raspberry Pi, which seems to be a very flexible mini computer board that can do almost everything and is easily programmed, once you know your python shit.

    merkins are making dacs and streaming boxes.

    Do you ever go all out and get a vanilla slice and a cup of tea instead?

    Or how about a lamington?

    Wasn’t sure which thread was the most appropriate but landed here.

    I think I’d actually enjoy watching these two bozos beat the daylights out of each other.
