1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

Classic audio: initial Checks, trouble-shooting etc

    I’ve been a subscriber to XRayTonyB’s YouTube channel for several years now and would highly recommend it, but he’s knocked the ball right out of the park with this video series to such an extent I’ll stick it at the top of this room. This is a wonderful beginner-grade guide to initial cleaning, assessing, safely turning on with a dim-bulb tester, measuring DC offset etc and it progresses to understanding how to read basic schematics etc. It is the stuff everyone with an interest in vintage audio should understand and also relates very strongly to Right To Repair etc. I’ll stick it here rather than in the DIY room as it represents a nice bridge between the two rooms.

    The rest of the series is available on his channel along with tons of related content.
