I have some of their £26 “modern but looks like the original”, they work fine.

I think that is what I picked up from the club stand at the NEC last year, Doug - as you say work fine and never had an issue. The plug leads are also numbered which is useful.

Regards.

Richard.

I do wonder why a 6 cylinder set is £26 and 4 cylinder £24. One is overpriced or one underpriced? 😡

Doug

The 6 cylinder set is underpriced because the owners of 6's deserve our sympathy as they don't have the good taste to own a 4 cylinder Triumph.

Oops, I had better hide 😜

We 6-cylinder owners are more canny with figures as we have to remember a six figure firing order, not just a four. 

Ignition leads are the same as audio / hi-fi leads;  all this talk about gold connectors and pure copper wiring etc is lost on most music systems - exactly the same with car engines. Once you go over a certain standard, you're just wasting money.

I read that Ethernet cable makes excellent hi fi cable and having a spare drum (don’t ask!) I made some up. 3 cables platted together, 24 cores. Worked very well, but UGLY looking dangling from the speakers.

Chris,

I know where you live. 😡

Pete,

online shop, Magnacor fast leads, Stag £170!

Never tried that... I bought a cheap phono cable for the recording room earlier in the week, wired it up and it nearly blew my equipment to pieces. 'Cheap' seems to have been the problem.

Colin,

3 x 8  is 24 not 14.  Tiny buttons on a tiny screen and impaired vision.☹️

Never noticed, Doug old mate. Specsavers combined with lack of coffee most likely. I probably assumed they were 14 cores each... :)

I was connecting up an LP player, so there's not many of us about that use that kind of technology any more, or even buy LPs.

I have a loft full of LPs, well a couple of hundred, my daughters bought me a cheap and cheerful player and fun going through them.

I’ve still got my dad’s Pioneer deck, very expensive, but sadly something wrong with the electronics, I suspect ancient capacitors.
