Reproduction 3D Printed Dust Covers

Tuesday, October 6th, 2015

A fellow owner has contacted me to say that he’s now offering 3D printed dust covers. These are often lost or broken so missing when PS-F5/F9s are offered for sale. Currently available in white or black (the original was a navy blue). This should fit both the PS-F5 and the PS-F9.

Hack an old Boombox to give line in

Saturday, September 21st, 2013

The execution’s a bit sloppy and as some commenters have pointed out, he could probably have just used the DIN socket, but the concept’s good:

Hacking a line-in socket into an 80s radio and cassette player

As well as allowing connection of phones and other media players, it will allow playback of the PS-F5/9 through the boombox speakers.  A relatively inexpensive way of getting good quality sound (good quality boomboxes can be had for some very reasonable prices on eBay) with the bonus of keeping your kit in the right decade 😉

TNT Triple T Speaker Cables

Wednesday, August 14th, 2013

Over 10 years ago, a friend of mine (the original Og) gave me a pair of splendid home made speaker cables that he’d made from CAT5 network cable that was being thrown away at his work. They sat waiting to be used until about 2 years ago when I purchased a pair of Heco Victa 201s for a steal on a local pick up only eBay auction.

These speaker cables tick all of my boxes- they look good, are reusing old tech which would have probably ended up in landfill, and best of all they sound great.

If you’re after some inexpensive speaker cable, see if you can locate some used network cable and plait yourself some audio clarity. Somewhere like Freecycle (or its new guise in your location – mine’s called Greencycle which is part of the Freegle network: the best bet in the UK) would be a good place to ask, or maybe try calling a local networking company to see if they’ve ripped out any old cable lately.

NOS APM-09 Speakers on eBay if you’re feeling flush

Sunday, July 8th, 2012

A nice set of APM 090s just appeared on eBay from a seller in New York. I got myself a pair of these a while back, but they’re nowhere near this condition.

Check the auction here…

Hadn’t seen the direct speaker connector before. Might have to make myself one of those (mine came with none of the extras).

The seller was good enough to upload scans of some of the instruction manual, which is good for me! Here’s the auction’s images (click to enlarge).

Someone in Canada is currently selling a power lead for the PS-F5 and PS-F9 which plugs into any USB port.

They do a 3.5′ white version with Apple branded USB plug, and a black generic version @ 10′. Both sell for the same price of $14.99 plus shipping of $4.99 inside the U.S.

As of September 2010 the seller hasn’t had them for a while, but this link will show you what PS-F5 related stuff they’re currently selling.
