Yet here I am beating the big drum for any of Melvyn Wright's "Musical Machine" pieces. You 'BeeBug' readers know of him. Afterall on the front page of the last issue of your magazine, centre of the nine pictures IS Melvyn Wright's "Music Machine". Regretfully,I was not a subscriber otherwise I would be hounding the publishers for information. I have been priviliged to use their 'Magscan' but have not come up with anything. Expressed my admiration of Wright and of another guy called B.A. Bramson who digitalised Bach's D Minor fugue, commonly called "Toccata"...sounds very classical, but I bet 90% of you would know it should you hear it...the graphics on the disc, feature organ pipes. Was told by the fellow enthusiatic Beeb owner that I ain't heard nothing yet till I hear Handel's music called "The Entry of the Queen of Sheeba". Agony of Agonies, his disc was corrupted some years ago and he had never managed to get another copy. Date around 1985/6. Can anyone help with any newly discoverd pieces of Wright or Bramsons' works or the "Entry of the Queen of Sheeba"?.

It is rectangular with dimensions: height 13mm width 23mm thickness 7mm The pins are spaced 21 mm apart. It is not an electrolytic type. Suppliers in my area are limited but when I find replacements I will let you know. Mine blew its side out! WARNING. These power supply units are of the Switched Mode type and are more difficult to deal with than other kinds. PSUs can give you one hell of a belt hours after you have unplugged so you must know what you are doing. Electronics are not my speciality but I would not think it a good idea to replace capacitors of any kind unless essential.
