Hello to all journal readers,

Haven't been much on Da over the last 4 weeks, due to a failing computer (CPU went to 100% and stayed there) , this combined with long working hours (weeks) , i only had some time this last week to llok at the computer.

In the end i formatted the hard drive and reinstalled  windows 7 and all the other required programs.

So finally it is working again since a few days.

I have a back lock of about 300 message's to attend too, and on top of that my favorite  Tube amplifier died in one channel due to high voltage short circuit.

So i am bussy to find out  what i need for type (rating) resistors and capacitors to reconstruct the burnt out part (since there are no schematics), and also need a new matching output transformer and some new tubes.

For me this amplifier is a life supporting unit , since i hardly look whats on the television, i fill the evenings with listening to music !

I have as backup, a Harman Kardon, a NAD and a DUAL amplifier but they cannot ne compared with the sweet detailed soundstage a Classe "A" tube amplifier can deliver.

So lots of work and little time, hoop before next weekend to have answered the messages , and will have time to publish a new journal with features.

 till next weekend, len.


I am Len van den Berg born on the 10th of November 1957 in the City of Haarlem in the Netherlands, married with Caro who is born in Cambrai in France, we have 2 sons one of 26 and one of 32 years of age , and further 2 cats that share our household.

Started with photography at the age of 9 with a Zeiss Ikon 6 x 6, later in adult live switched to Leica IIIf , M3 and SL.

About 5 years ago started with digital photography using a Lumix LX2, then an Olympus E600 and now a Canon 60D and mainly using Manual Focus lenses from a forgotten Era, mainly Leica

Personal Quote:

"The outcome of the Photograph depends largely, on the chosen subject and how it was taken, the camera itself is just a medium to register your idea's about the subject"
