    ( speakers are placed on End Tables Bought from Argos store. The speakers are placed on Iso pads to stop vibration As i prefer these than having speaker stands )

    Epiphone 355 Guitar (Frets have been flattened it has been properly, Set up and it so easy to play )

    Note.

    The Musical Fidelity A5 had a strange noise only can be described as a whirling sound on both sides of the Mono Block amps. This bothered me for a while. I paid for a so called expert to come out cost me £40 to pick it up take it to his workplace as it so heavy, and have a prod around. He mumbled grunted and huffed and puffed in my home, and said it was mains born hum, Nothing he could do and left. Blighter Still charged me £40. grrrrr.



    Anyway The Musical Fidelity, I Fired up again with a different mains lead than the one i was using. This one pushed right in pure fluke . Low and behold the noise stopped. Imagine how happy i was.


    What a wombat I thought £40

    I can only assume the earth pin was not making contact. As it says in the Book of Words. This appliance must be Earthed. I stand to be corrected of course.

    I believe that is actually a Musical Fidelity A5 Integrated Amplifier.

    I own one of the same.

    Hello Olson

    Are you happy with it .. What speakers you running with yours.

    I thought that's what i said it was. I felt i did not need to write integrated amplifier thought everyone know what it was my apologies for that.

    We are a pedantic bunch here, but MF does make an A5 'amplifier', so I also thought that's what you had until I looked at the pic.
