For my oldest friend Wilbert

A man has got to start somewhere…
First of all a big THANKS! to my dear friend Wilbert, thanks to whom this site exists.
Not only do we share a lot of memories, we also share a deep friendship which has been invisible at times, but was always there through the years.

Only a few people stayed with me in life and looking back I realized I wasn’t the easiest person to hang out with….

Siltech FT12 speakercable modified

Written by admin on . Posted in Kabels

After finding the right choice of  amplifier, cd-player[ or turnable] and speakers, next  comes the challenge of finding the right cables to connect them. Interconnects as well as powercables and speakerleads can make a huge difference.

Finding the right cables means finding that “synergy” that brings out the best of each component without adding or leaving out elements of the original recording but even more important… bringing out the emotion of the event while it was recorded.

Not an easy task therefore, and many people find themselves buying different cables time and time again in search of that synergy and ending up with lots of cables they don’t use [like myself].

I must admit I’m one of those people who have bought so many cables over the years that you could probably cross the “Golden Gate bridge” with it if I tied them all together…. Luckily I sold some from time to time, but there are still a few that I still have.

Anyway; the quest for the right cable for this particularly setup is over after I got my hands on a few metres of  Siltech FT-12 speakercable. Beeing a impressive cable in terms of shear size, it only really started to impress me after I hooked it up to my install. This had to be the most revealing cables I ever heard in my setup, this was what I had been looking for.

Only downside; due to it’s dimensions [it's very wide and heavy] it’s almost impossible to properly fit it into a connector. The actual silver strips will break easily when the cable is moved, plus you need alot of space behind your equipment to accomodate it; not user-friendly.

So I decided to remove the heavy insulation and go for a home-made Teflon version which would solve this issue. Later on I used the remaining length of the cable [cut in half over the length] to wire the inside of my speakers. It took me a lot of hours wrapping the teflon tape around the silver strips but it was worth the trouble. 

This is what the first version of the cable looks like….not impressive but pure silver and cheap to buy used !  Siltech later used the big-and-heavy blue covering shown in the pictures above. Nothing changed on the inside though, so keep that in mind when looking for buying this cable.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

AMPS

Written by admin on . Posted in Versterkers

Don’t we all like amps…..

Some like BIG amps, some go for the smallest ones, but always there’s the “itch” for “that better amp”.

I’ve gone through a lot of different brands, models and sizes and must admit that the best amp so far is the one I’m using right now in my setup; the Decware ZEN  SE84C shown below.

This is a 2 times 2 Watts Single Ended Triode tube amp that really brings a sense of  life-like sound into the house

In a short while I’ll show some of the amps that have been in the house, some short, some a little longer.
