Re: What Are You Listening To Right This Minute?

Snork !
But a nice list Mike, quite a lot I don't know though.
Meanwhile - Patti Smith 'Hiorses' from CD - checking out my friend's FX120 driver on test OB baffle, just the right channel.
It's such a subtle album, really a great recording. Keeps growing in my estimation.

Re: Terry jones

A sad day indeed. What a great guy. Mr. Creosote, Brian's Mum, Cardinal Biggles. Also half of Ripping Yarns.
A local man of course, found out he's not just from North Wales but from Colwyn Bay, just up the road.

Re: SLOB project

Wofgang - I really don't know enough about servo-controlled woofers. My understanding is they are mostly used for high power applications in PA. Do they sound any good at normal room HiFi levels ? It would probably need to bi-amped, as I have no idea what it's parameters would look like in a convent...

Re: The Audio-Talk Cycling thread.

I went out on Friday and Sunday again on the zero-wheeled bicycle.
I have pictures, will try to post a few when I get chance, conditions were again excellent for scenic shots.

Re: 866A MVs

I can't help you Stephen, but it seems worthwhile tacking this Thomas Mayer article onto this thread, for some reason !

Re: SLOB project

I'll try & check out the video later. briefly one aim of the OB is to get low group delay - OB being close to infinite baffle loading which is the lowest GD apart from a (big) horn, which is very hard to do for the bass. Also the OB loading on the mid driver for vocals is to my ears the most natural...

Re: SLOB project

Thanks gents. The reason I've been thinking about it is based on my assumption that the Lii unit will crossover fairly low down (<200Hz?) so will be producing some upper bass itself. It's not really a trade-off relating to the Lii producing upper bass. The extended sides are a way of slightly impro...

Re: SLOB project

I think you would be safe to extend the side panels up , but slanting down, past the mid driver. You just don't want them to be too deep, ie. much beyond 6" , at the level of the Lii, otherwise you will start to get some ripple from resonances. I've never been quite sure about how to design the SLOB...

Re: The Audio-Talk Cycling thread.

Prey tell us more please. :) Second-hand Canon 5D Mk.II and the new Tamron SP 35mm f/1.4 which has been getting rave reviews. I had been reading some very good optical tests of modern lenses on a site called Lens Rentals.com (Blog) and it seemed the lens technology was moving on even from the Leica...

Re: The Audio-Talk Cycling thread.

It's one gadget too many for me at the moment Ed, go ahead .
Just bought a big digital SLR and an expensive lens this morning - will keep my brain cells taxed in the next few weeks.

Re: Something stirs in the Undergrowth

Good point - but it might limit their sales a little.
More to the above - what the cap change suggests is that there's different phase behaviour in the two cables.
