Re: Richard Dunn

Loosing track now
Us well we should keep buying, borrowing, listening and telling the truth
Tell the truth, tell it as you see it, positive or negative, it really doesn't matter, it is the truth that matters.
Just what bit of not-truth is being questioned?

Re: Power Supply Questions

Carried out your suggestions Simon and the hum levels are now negligible. Thanks. :) No crap being injected into the star point now, I presume. TBH it's the first time I've done star earthing and I obviously got it wrong; a bit more to it than just running all the earths to one point. Result :-). B...

Re: Valve phonostage build

Yes, a square wave and inverse RIAA is a good way, but will only get you so close. Also remember you need to limit the rise time of the input square wave else the inverse riaa will try and turn them into very very large spikes that will distract you. After that a frequency and phase sweep with the i...

Re: How could anybody be THAT good at ANYTHING ??

W"as going to post some, but forgot. This is to me a good example, I think WR tends to be a bit under raved about (IMHO) after Jaco was left.

Re: Thermal transfer and shimming adhesive

But do you not get the extra insulation back by isolating the screw from the transistor with a plastic spacer? Or is it because the anodizing and adhesive are two layers of insulation, the screw and washer mean its just the one? Would the same not be achieved by using a nylon screw to hold the trans...

Re: OB project, Jame's Quasars copy

The more I think of series xovers the more I realise I don’t understand them, but with only the cap there I don’t think any of the simple explanations you can make with a conventional xover can be made. I think without the inductor its just not valid in any way. Mark knows more about this stuff, but...

Re: OB project, Jame's Quasars copy

Well I had the speakers cranked up louder tonight and I don't know if its because the drive units are loosening up or if it's the power of suggestion but the bass did seem a little err relentless..... I might have to unleash the EX3s..... All good fun But without the inductor, the PM6C is being ask...

Re: Bert Weedon's Play In A Day

I spent a lot of time (though it didn’t do me much good) with Mickey Baker.

Lets see if he is listening?

So, why do you HAVE to have your thumb on the side of the neck all the time? I can think of times it helps, but more times it doesn’t.

lets see you do B B King vibrato with the thumb there...

Re: OB project, Jame's Quasars copy

Ok but won't more DCR mean that the inductor is less able to shunt low frequencies past the full range driver. Yes - and in this case it's not a big deal, as the bass driver needs attenuating slightly anyway. The LP slope should be in the same place , just a bit of amplitude attenuation. ... edit :...
