I have acquired a batch of these very rare US military valves. These are the type Musical Fidelity fit in the X10 v3 tube buffer and kW 500 integrated amplifier, Musical Fidelity’s highest performance tube to date. It’s more linear and quieter, with better performance capabilities than either their highly regarded Nu-Vista or Tri-Vista tubes.
This batch was made in July 1985 (22 years old!) and each valve is sealed in its original bag and carton. Never used, absolutely 100% NOS.... for use in the £3995 kW 500 Integrated Amplifier and the X-10 v3 tube buffer.
I have limited stock of these so grab a pair today before they all run out!
cj: I was going to lend you some of my rope but it's sun damaged and will probably snap under the weight . Ho Chi Minh up Mike, you'll soon be (Sai)gone, god DaNang it'll be hot, with strange music over the Hanoi system, enjoy!

PinkFloyd: Probably straight of the freezer into the frying pan knowing my luck Chris.... I'll send you a postcard if I'm not too hot to write
Jul 28, 2015 20:38:01 GMT
PinkFloyd: Straight out of the freezer even.......... typo

jamesfeline: yep still raining
Jul 28, 2015 20:53:49 GMT
jamesfeline: at least my log cabin is nice and warm
Jul 28, 2015 20:54:33 GMT
cj: We have a very warm night at 30c now! (01:30)

PinkFloyd: Win 10 downloading now..... progress 11%........ let's hope this isn't a waste of time.

cj: Sounds slow, what the PC's spec?
Jul 30, 2015 20:35:20 GMT
PinkFloyd: 84% now Chris...... it's a beast of a machine but the Highlands DL rate is 6MBPS
Jul 30, 2015 20:41:00 GMT
PinkFloyd: Yes.... "six" megabytes per second with a more realistic 900kbps DL speed
Jul 30, 2015 20:42:08 GMT
sandyk: Mine is now hitting a max DL speed from Usenet of just over 6 Megabytes/s, but tests up to just over 100Megabits, During peak periods even lower than Mike's 900kilobits. I have Win 10 reserved but no advice yet.
Jul 30, 2015 21:18:22 GMT
cj: On a good day I get 12MB but at the weekend it drops to under 1MB for most of the 48/60 hours.
Jul 30, 2015 21:26:22 GMT
hifidez: I get between 6 and 8 megabytes per second and we're not on the list to get 'superfast broadband' I hear. Currently on 71% W10 download; seems to be progressing, albeit slowly.

cj: I'm holding off. Things like "will my printer/scanner still work?" trouble me. So far Epson have said "don't know" !!
Jul 31, 2015 16:24:43 GMT
PinkFloyd: I've decided to stay with Win 7..... there's nothing in win 10 that I need and the "last" thing I need right now is a totally alien download that "may" cock up what I have spent a few months setting up. Do I really need "Cortana"? Erm, nope......
Jul 31, 2015 20:06:46 GMT
PinkFloyd: I'd rather type my search query in..... I don't want the likes of Microsoft listening to me shouting out "porn please! What has this world come to..... closer to the end than the beginning I fear.....

videoguy: Win 7 is a very stable O.S., it is what I use in my video editing computer w adobe CS 6. I never take a chance on Micros. latest & greatest as they are usually a work in progress. My ISP says 10 disables the normal MS browser for their latest wonder.

cj: " Do I really need "Cortana"?" naaah, wot u want is a Cortina guv, a nice MKii 1600E, larrrrrvly.

chris53: Maybe I have been lucky but everything works in Windows 10 so far. Tried Cortana but I can't shout "Porn Please" or the missus will hear so I disabled it.
Aug 1, 2015 15:16:57 GMT
chris53: Videoguy: I still have IE 11 as well as "Edge". It didn't disable it for me. It isn't listed in the "Aps" but I already had a short cut to it.
