    Hornyphon (Philips) SA5427 e.g Philips 22RH427s

    Has anyone heard of the Hornyphon SA5427. They were made in 1975-78 period in Austria, and that's about all I know about them. I also know that Philips bought Hornyphon at some point, but I don't know when. I was just wondering if anyone knew about any reputation they had?  They are also...

    Any thoughts on the Pro-Ject Genie 3?

    I'm tempted due its great reputation as being a budget turntable, and I love the radical design too! Anyone have any thoughts on this little fella?

    A similar component CD player to the Technics SL-P777.

    Ok, so my poor SL-P777 is giving up the ghost, which I'm heartbroken about. Something to do with it's motor, which is brushless and  apparently near impossible to fix...  So.... I need a new CD deck for my hi-fi. Something of a similar age or sound signature, as I do love this CD deck (ok...

    Powering AKG K701 from a ROTEL RA-611

    Hi all, I've acquired some AKG K701s off a friend, and currently I'm running them off my Rotel RA-611 and I'm not going to lie, they do sound fantastic. However, I can't find out at all what the specs are for the output on the Rotel out of the headphone port. I just want to do a check to make...

    Replacement cable for Goldring NS-1000s.

    Seriously, these things don't seem to exist. I broke mine, but luckily found a 1.5m 3.5mm cable which fits, but albeit with slightly reduced sound quality. Besides, I want my Goldrings to look tidy again and get hold of the right cable but I can't find one anywhere. Any ideas?

    A pair of reasonable budget headphones for the beginner audiophile.

    While I'm here, I might as well get this over and done with  My girlfriend wants me to get her a pair of Goldring NS1000s for her birthday, as she loves mine, which she bought me... somewhat ironically, but I feel that is a bit of a jump to go from nothing to using a reasonably high end set of...

    Choosing a pair of new cans (yep, another of those threads).

    So I'm after a new pair of headphones which will be dedicated hi fi headphones, so can be driven by a headphone amp if necessary but the onboard headphone circuit on my Rotel RA-611 is pretty damn fine. Currently I have a pair of Goldring NS1000s but they mainly get used while I'm out and...
