    Millett "Starving Student" hybrid amp

    Could anyone tell me where to find a mounting kit for the MOSFET on the heatsink? I live in Australia, so I'll be using Farnell/Element14 to order. At the moment I've found the heatsink, but the accompanying mounting kit is $9.85. Seems a little steep considering the heatsink is around $5.  ...

    I would build one for you, but I'm in Australia.

    Ultimate Ears Triple Fi 10 Thread

    I didn't like the Comply's either. It takes ages to get a good seal in your ear, and then once you do it removes all of the highs that make the UE's really good IEM's.

    Sansui SR-212?

    Hi All, Sorry if this sounds rushed but I don't have to much time left before my opportunity to get this ends. Is this a good turntable? I'm starting to build my Hi-Fi system, so what needs to go with this? A receiver and an amp I'm guessing, a preamp too? Is this a quality turntable (Sansui...

    Ah, the shipping's a killer. Looks like I won't have enough to get one.

    Victor HP-FX500 Review: World's first Wood Canalphones

    Can anyone compare the Victors to the IE8's sibling, the IE7? Ive heard the IE7 is a completely different beast with a soundstage that is a little bit smaller, but great mids and highs. I'm trying to decide if I should get the IE7's or the Victors, and at the moment I'm looking at the IE7's...

    Sennheiser IE7 Appreciation Thread ~~~

    I'm a fan of my Grado SR-60's. How would I go with the IE7's? I've been looking at them for ages, but I've put them off numerous times because of the price. -CaptHowie

    Fixing Up My Sennheiser CX300's

    Hi All, Until I get my Sennheiser IE7's I need to put up with my CX300's. The filters have gunked up with ear wax and the rubber tips have gone hard. What can I do to fix this? I was thinking about putting the tips under hot water since they might soften up, but for the filters I will need to...

    Recommend Me a Turntable

    Hi All, Before I start, I have read the sticky up top. I'm looking for a decent sounding turntable that is reliable and cheap. I'm a student, so I probably can't spend to much money, so I will probably end up buying secondhand with a new cart. I'm relatively new to vinyl, but my dad has just...
