      Hi Shelly. I have one little Mono Tube Amplifier, Stromberg Carlson, 12 watts. I want to connect a stereo input (a macbook for example) in mono auxiliary input of the amplifier. Wish i have to put a resistor with how value (ohms) at each positive Y cable, before joining the ends? I want to listen a stereo sound from macbook in mono tube amplifier. Can you help me? Thanks

      That's amazing. I'm afraid that we don't have any vintage air shows in the Netherlands that I know about, aside from veterans day. A real shame, but we still have a few museums (;

      I noted your response on a 2009 forum topic re an issue I am grappeling with and I hope you might be able to provide some guidence. I have a Thorens TD150 with the original TP 13A 'Kugel' tone arm. It came with 2 off TS 50 head shells. Each came with a Shure M44MC cartridge fitted, but I also have a Shure V15 Type III cartridge and noted that you had used this on your TT. I have a great elliptical .2 X .7 stylus for it and I would like to give it a run on the Thorens. Could you advise if your V15-III is fitted to a TS50, and if so is there anything I need to know before fitting mine?
      regards

      Thanks Shelly, I'll have to look at that, and I should check and see what is going on with the thread. Maybe I should just delete it . . .

      This response is a bit delayed, life seems to intrude on my hobbies.

      I would like to take you up on your offer to provide speaker advise. I prefer phone calls as I'm not the fastest typist. My daytime number is 913 588 1856 and my home is 913 261 9202. I only use my mobile phone when I'm traveling. Call any time no worries, only I answer these numbers. I'm happy to give you a call if you prefer.

      My civilian email is: clittle@kumc.edu

      Thanks for your kind advice.

      Thank you friend. I've never thought of myself as cool but take it as a very big compliment when someone else does. By the way, I saw on your info page that the pic in your avatar is your wife and that she's also a good cook. That makes you a VERY lucky man.

      Hey bud,I figure a guy who's into vintage planes and vintage stereos is gotta be pretty cool!

      It didn't get one. It was experimental and never put into production. It started out as a variation on the p36 Hawk but the p40 was chosen for production instead. BTW the Warhawk was also know as the Kittyhawk and Tomahawk depending on who flew it. I'm sure the Russians had another name for it to, probably unpronounceable.

      Shelly,

      I want to try those capacitors at the input stage. Do I use polarized capacitors and if so is the wiring from the take off sockets from pin 8 to pin 1/8 of V3 and pin 8 to V6 pins 8/1? What would be the orientation of the caps? What is the tolerance and voltage I used be using? Why not go past .1 since most speakers roll off between the 60Hz to 30Hz region? I have two 22mf capacitors that were part of the original wiring before I re-wired to stock. Should I re-add to the circuit? What would be the proper way of doing this? Or am I adding more noise?

      Thanks!

      Thanks for the message. I found I was into old airplanes before I even knew what a phonograph was - at that time I thought of it as a record player. But I could tell a P51 from a ME109 at a single glance - and quote you the armament, top speed and horsepower of both.

      I saw the avatar, too, and the bit about planes with props. I'm a plane buff, engineer, and former Private pilot. I love the WWI and WWII stuff. My dad was in WWII. I like old-tek. I'm sure that's why I'm drawn to tubes. My latest kick is restoring 1960 vintage console amplifiers.

      Couldn't help but notice your avatar. Nice choice. It reminded me that not only am I the only person I know that still messes around with a record player, I am the only one I know who knows anything about WWII aviation.

      Hi: I couldn't help but notice the belt problem that you had with you Luxman DZ-122 CD player. I am having the same problem. It would be greatfully appreciated if you could let me know where you got your new belt and also the size of it.

      I was very close to retiring the Luxman CD player. I have had it since 1991. I purchased a new Denon and it does not sound as good. I am now trialing a Sim Audio Moon Cd-1 (sells for $1500.00 ) and we can't hear a noticeable difference between the Luxman and the Moon. The Luxman is a wonderful CD player.

      Many thanks
