  1. Finally finished the box I made to put the wife's present in. Really happy with it. The handle is a detail I love. It's a cream leather amplifier handle I got for cheap off Amazon, but it feels amazing.

  2. I am/was the moderator for the Tape Project forum and I have a modified Technics RS1500 with a custom tube output that replaces the 70's era solid state amp. I use that for listening to a collection of about 400 reel to reel tapes. I also have an Ampex ATR700 which is one of the last machines that Ampex sold. It was a collaboration between Ampex and Teac. I have a couple of head-blocks for the Ampex and I did some experimenting with the mono/full track head set processing tracks similar to what you're planning. The results were mixed, but in the long run, I ended up using

  3. My Makita track saw has a simple little anti-tip device when doing bevel cuts that works pretty well. Certainly works well enough for me.

  5. A guy on /r/audiophile had a pair of 18" subs for a live PA that he was unable to sell, so he added them to his home theatre. WAF is quite low as it turns out.

  8. Well, unless I find some way to make some Purple Heart wood filler for my screw-ups, I think I am about sanded 80-120-180-220 and ready to wipe on some of this Arm-R-Seal stuff. Need better attention to detail, a better way to estimate angles for the trim and probably to do more accurate 45 cuts as the track saw likes to lean. Trying to force the floor and four sides together on dominoes was not a perfect experience either, I need an apprentice. I also need to write less on the wood, pain to get it all off. Good enough for mid-century modern dog toys I guess.

  9. If anyone needs me, I will be flying to SA, renting a stepladder, returning it, renting a BIGGER stepladder, smacking 'stretch one, and flying home. (Not really.)

  10. So I've been active on Flickr on and off since 2005. I used to regularly submit images to the Tattooed Girls group. Said group has been rudderless for what feels like a decade. All of the admins have been MIA for ages. In the interim, the group has been overrun with off topic images, porn, spam, images with phishing links in the description, etc etc. After several months of back and forth, I managed to get control of the group by contacting Flickr staff. The first thing I did was ban a few spam accounts. Since then I have been slowly going through the 65,000+ (ya rly) images and removi

  14. Maybe the opposite of Angels in America, watching Heaven's Gate: Cults of Cults (HBO). "Cult" is obviously a loaded term applied often fuzzily (and/or from another questionable groups own biases), but have always been interested in this one, as I may have mentioned before, a Heaven's Gate ad is what I saw a few months after moving to California three decades ago, and sent 6-7 copies of it back to my friends in Ohio to say "I've arrived in California!". One of them was to a girl I previously dated in a different international "techno-focused California cult" (sorry, WCG), which seemed normal-is

  15. I have now pulled some numbers from the circuit. And I took more pretty pics, which I‘ll start off with: Now for some numbers: PSU voltages: V_HV_pos=402V, V_HV_neg=-403V V_LV_pos=14.88V, V_LV_neg=14.88V Current sources: Right channel voltage drop over the RN60C 49R9: V_ccs_pos=857mV, I_ccs_pos=17.17mA V_ccs_neg=856mV, I_ccs_pos=17.15mA Left channel voltage drop over the RN60C 49R9: V_ccs_pos=862mV, I_ccs_pos=17.28mA (adjusted to 857mV/17.17mA) V_ccs_neg=856mV, I_ccs_pos=17.15mA On the left side the i

  16. Congrats on your finished build! I did a similar (in terms of size and layout) single chassis build, with the amp mounted in the upper part of the heatsink. Dual 450V and 20mA. At steady state, the temps hover around 46 degrees celsius (ambient 27 deg) on the heatsinks directly behind the amp boards, 43 deg behind the GRHV, and 41 deg at other parts of the heatsink where nothing is mounted behind. Not sure about you but I feel it's quite safe to push it to 20mA if you're getting a similar temperature.

  17. No worries, it’s a lot different doing individual tracks in a larger mix than it is doing it on a whole stereo mix. I’ll be asking the former. Also, not really worried about synchronization if it’s a foundation track.

  18. With the complex design you chose for your first big project, I'd say you did pretty well. I would cut the trim long, then put it against the actual box to mark the angles in place. But that's just experience. That comes naturally. What doesn't come natural is the eye for design and the ability to turn that design into an actual object. You seem to have that in spades. Most would have built an easy square box. Kudos! As for putty to match the Purple Heart, simply make some Purple Heart sawdust, mix with wood glue into a thick paste and putty all gaps before it dries. Over putty, then

  19. RIP TdP! As a reel to reel fanatic, his mods to gear like the ATR102 are legend and his 825Q mastering equalizer is considered by the mastering engineers I know to be their fav. https://vintageking.com/ear-825-equalizer

  22. Thirded for Arm R Seal. That's what I used on the Colossus, as well as many other projects. I like to use foam brushes to apply. Put your brush inside a ziplock bag between coats.

  25. I posted a Chinese version of this article several months ago and now I translated it and put it here. I guess some people here will be interested. I hope you like it. Actually I have some more articles like this pending but I just don't have the time to write it up. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- It all started about a year ago that a second hand sr-omega popped up in the local community. From time to time omegas show up on markets around the world but this one is different: an omega
