Valve Audio Amplifiers

Valve Audio Amps are back!

Hi-Fi enthusiasts are buying new or refurbishing there good old stereo audio valve amp and now I can understand why. Listening to a stereo audio valve amp with a vinyl player really brings out the goodness of audio reproduction as what it should sound like to the analogue ear. The amplifiers are only rated at 30 - 45 watts of power but the pure and warmest sound I have heard. This is enough power to fill any standard size living room. Surround  sound of course is still a must for the DVD / Blu-ray encoding playback home theatre 3D but it is always nice to squeeze in a valve amp if you can afford it. Word of advice, put some money aside in case you need a set of valves in a few years time, depending on how long you use it, my saying is if it's not being used, turn it off  from the wall power, don't leave the valve amps on idle or the valves will burn out prematurely. Enjoy your music everyone!

Radio Microphones

Radio microphones.
Warning, it is highly recommended to check with your dealer of the new frequency groups before purchasing any wireless microphones. The frequency allocation in Australia for secondary non licensed users, will be changing by the end of Dec 2012. Most radio microphone importers are aware of this but you don't want to be left with something you cannot use. It might be wise to look at investing new wireless systems soon and start selling off your existing ones on ebay to international buyers.
People have asked us if it would be possible to change the frequency groups of there existing wireless systems and the answer is NO! It is not economical or practical to carry out a change of this kind.

One wonders these days, who will be the next electronic manufacturing leader after China, perhaps India.I am sure we are all happy with electronic products dropping in prices these days but not so much with the quality drop that goes with the price.

Technology changes

Posted on 21 April, 2012 at 4:56 Comments comments (20)
The electronic industry has changed enormously over the last three decades from valve design to silicon transistor and now surface mount technology. This change has allowed designers to build smaller and extremely portable equipment. The use of surface mount devices has made it much more difficult for the average technician to work on, especially without the right tests equipment. Workshops almost have to invest on re-flow equipment to have any chance of attempting to repair the equipment of today. The new 3D visual generation is also a new phase along with digital radio and digital television. One believes the next phase will be speech technology. Does this mean we never have to use our hands anymore? Interesting. I have been servicing the electronic  industry for over thirty years and had to adopt to these changes. Repairing wireless microphones is my favorite because radio waves is something you cannot physically see so it makes it more challenging and a challenge is what I am always looking for. Working on the bench is o.k through winter but in summer I would much rather be outdoors doing installations, that is if I had the chance. It gives my mind a break from fault finding all day.
