Really? Would have thought it was pretty obvious seeing as I had used the full word earlier and was in context?

Ok, slap noted. i shall strive to K.I.S.Sirs in the future.

Trying to bling things up a bit but YCPAOTPAOTT.

Not to a non-native English speaker it won't be. Fine in a thread a regular started in say the DIY section, but it does help if you try and stick to the actual words where the O/P is obviously new to the subject.

Ok but OP has been with us a year and has 70 posts under his belt. I also did not get any impression that his English was anything but 'native'?

I regularly contribute on an American forum and they seem to take my foibles in good part. Probably just think of me as that "quirky old limey"!

I shall try to be more po-f...I mean CORRECT in the future!

Quirky is fine, but I often struggle to translate many of your obscure shorthand terminology... and I'm not even going to consider YCPAOTPAOTT!

+1 here I'm afraid Dave!

I'm sorry to say but I don't know what you're referring to half the time... and some of your 'shorthand' contains more characters than the standard spelling! (e.g "neg ten" for "-10" always raises a smile!)

I'm not so impressed with the Rean offerings, I bought some ¼" TS jacks and ended up replacing them all with proper Neutriks.

As previously mentioned, maybe not a problem for low stress situations, like installations.

Hot tip:
I find keeping the good coffee in an old marmalade jar in the fridge makes it last much longer - the kids don't like marmalade.

Well "neg X" comes from working with those dastardly guitar electronics guys! You know, the people that use the MUCH more logical dBVolts!

Still, I shall try not to type so much from the hip when here in the future but of course Hugh, You Can't Please Al.......

It ain't what you don't know. It's what you know that ain't so.

Keep posting Dave! :clap::thumbup:

I value your contributions and your knowledge - even if we disagree about printed manuals! :lol:

For the record, I have very little difficulty with your vernacular style, but maybe best to dial it back a bit for the wider - and younger - audience. ;)

But please do keep contributing... :thumbup:
