Morphy Richards 27024

We are able to sell the Morphy Richards, shortly, at special pricing, on Amazon UK.
Its not as a good performer as the DR111 but we hope the pricing will encourage more folks to try DRM.

Ian, I wonder if it's acceptable practice with the moderator if you post a link to your webpages on Amazon in the UK which list the Morphy Richards' 27024 and Newstar's DR111 for sale here?

Hi Ian,

Is there a newer firmware in the new ones than in my "old" Morphy? If yes, how to obtain it?

The newest firmware I know of for the Morphy Richards is here http://www.radiostore.de/service/upd...are/index.php#
I'm happy to post links to Amazon UK if the moderator is happy for this.

Does anybody have experience of a good alternative power supply for the Morphy Richards?

In March 2009 I tested with the following results:


The Original Morphy Richards AC/DC Power Adapter:
(This AC/DC Adapter is not stabilized)
=======================================
12.6 Volts DC, the Morphy AC Adapter without load (0.0 A)
10.0 Volts DC, the Morphy switched off (current: 0.53 A) (!)
9.6 Volts DC, the Morphy switched on (current: 0.65 A)


Test with a Regulated Power supply:
===========================
12.0 Volts DC, the Morphy switched off (current: 0.53 A)
12.0 Volts DC, the Morphy switched on (current: 0.65 A)

Test with the same Regulated Power supply (increased voltage):
================================================
13.2 Volts DC, the Morphy switched off (current: 0.53 A)
13.2 Volts DC, the Morphy switched on (current: 0.65 A)

A 10 to 12 Volt Power Adapter with stabilized output and 1 - 1.5 A capability would be suitable. Be sure that the connector is correctly polarized! But whatever my advice, I am not taking any responsibility for what could happen, as I have no schematics for the Morphy.

Tips

I thought I would give some tips on the Morphy Richards:
1. Update the firmware, the link is in this thread I recall, I use a 2Gb card I formatted on the radio.
2. For better DAB reception, dont fully extend the aerial.

Morphy Richards 27024

Good to see you back on the forum Ian!

I have just started fitting an external BNC antenna connection to my radio last night, hope to finish the job today. I am fitting mine to the back panel to the left (when viewed from the back) of the other connectors.

Will post the results.

Hi Neil and all,

The Morphy would like a switchable 10 dB attenuator too according to my experience... and if you're using an active antenna with DC on the coax, be sure to insert a 22 nF capacitor between the antenna connector and the attenuator switch.
