  3. Since photography is a hobby of mine as well, I decided to take some internal and external pictures of my recently completed KGSSHV. Hope you enjoy them.

  4. That's the problem, all the photos got nuked. It hasn't been shipped just yet, but it looks like the re-tipped Zu DL-103 tests out pretty darn good. He said that it's pretty rare to get separation so close to a perfect 40 degrees.

  5. Heh. You got me! I officially put in to have 12/10 and 12/11 off. Don't screw me on this, CD Projekt!

  6. From my experience with my departed HE 4XX, they need it. Much prefer my modded T50RPs (Mk I). If you need to EQ phones, my thought has always been you have the wrong phones...

  8. Haven't I mentioned before that I'm just here to look pretty? I'll leave the technical mumbo-jumbo to the smarter people. 🙂

  9. So funny thing, barely related to video games. When CDPR announced they were delaying Cyberpunk yet again, their stock dropped. It's obviously going to go up. I called my broker (yes, I have one) and explained the situation. He knows fuck-all about video games, but he understood what I was talking about. I said "put be down for X shares!" He said sure. I got call back from him an hour later. Apparently it's impossible for Edward Jones (the firm I use) to buy CDPR stocks, for reasons that are unclear to me. Also I caused a mini drama in the east coast EdJo offices as calls went up

  11. You jinxed it by announcing that, thanks a lot.

  12. Why's that? EQing—whether through hardware or software—is relatively simple. It seems to provide a way to modify the frequency response of headphones that are technically competent but sonically unbalanced. For example, I like many of the attributes of the Koss ESP/95X, but they certainly benefit from a bit of EQ (in my opinion). And I don't use EQ on my Utopias, but that would seem to be a possible solution for many HCers that want to tame their treble and boost the bass a bit.

  13. Agreed. Fantastic mini-series. Hawke's performance had light & shade I'd never seen from him before. That scene of Brown & Onion in the jail cell: “Whatever you are, Onion, be it in full. You were made by your maker, and he loves you. And I love you, too. I don’t care what clothes you wear any more than I do the size of your shoes.” "The Good Lord Bird doesn't fly in a flock. The voice of our spirit is gentle. Sometimes you have to fly alone to hear it" Whew!!!

  14. Not entirely from scratch. I had a thread dedicated to the build, but it got nuked by Reks. I purchased a VPI Aries special edition Black acrylic platter, about 2" thick, along with the accompanying inverted platter bearing. Then purchased a Rega RB300 tonearm with upgraded Cardas wiring. Then outfitted that tonearm with Pete Riggle's counter weight and VTA mechanism. The plinth I built was rather complex, with 6 alternating layers of 3/4" birch plywood and 3/4" MDF. I drilled a series of 10 holes about 1 1/2" in diameter and 3" deep, on the bottom of the plinth. Those I filled wit

  16. I finished Horizon Zero Dawn over the weekend on PC. Very cool game! The story was surprisingly good and a really cool take on what would otherwise be a familiar post-apocalypse trope. I mentioned to a buddy that maybe the reason there are so few great Sci-fi tv series these days is the games industry has picked off so much of the good writing talent? Also, it is a credit to how good the story is and how fun hunting robot dinosaurs is that the bad parts of the game (side quests, in-game economy, boring open world activities) really don't distract from the high points. The game i

  17. IT'S BACK! I remember it being big, but I forgot how massive it is. In no way is it going to fit on the TT stand I just built. I've also forgotten the layout of the controls on the speed controller, and which is input and output on the DIY Pass Pearl phono stage. Lots of fiddling to do before I'm near ready to fire up the beast, but it feels good to have her home again. It was 12 years ago that I built her. I need to see if I can get the Zu Audio DL 103 aluminum bodied cartridge repaired. I had broken the cantilever some years back. I also need to source a rubber belt for the motor/platte

  18. listen to it? if you check my todo list nowhere does it say listen to it... measure it yes... listen to it? why would I do that? 🙃 latest update, internal signal wiring done (silicone not cardas - I need to buy more cardas chassis wire) and front panel completed. Both channels powered up at the same time for the first time. No drama so far. The heatsinks around the el34s runs a bit hotter than joamats mini T2. I not done any temperature checks look good. All transistors seem ok and so do the high power resistors. .6922 heater voltage is a little high at 6.35V so I will need to add some d

  19. It might be a little premature but I think I now have a working T2 using a modified version of joamat's staxt2nc3fdh7 amp files and kgsshv dc supplies.... Initial startup looks good. Channels started up seperately. Heater transformer running at full voltage. High voltage transformer on a variac. virtual batteries within 100mV of 740V before any adjustment. DC balance between + and - sides of a channel <1V without any adjustment, all 3 leds lit on both channels. once my hands stop shaking I will take a few photos... I have been dreading switch on... in the meantime here's a few bu
