    We had a post match team dinner there and I must say the food was awful. The ribs,brisket and chicken tasted like regional airport food. I would not recommend this place to anyone. But on a somewhat brighter note, Lance with his team mate Ilya.

    Mini Dynalo After running the amp for over an hour, bias was 14+mA, so right where I want it to be. I thought it might be interesting to create a table or spreadsheet showing different users biasing and results, so I made a Google sheet, here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1D5LDuRdupZRoWR-GfAd03fkFSBAMY4-E_VcYfCAI1Z0/edit?usp=sharing Go ahead and fill in your info if you like so this is available for all to see. Note: this is the first time I've created a Google sheet, so let me know if you can't edit it and I'll try to figure it out Heatsinks: I've been looking for some. The ones that @mypasswordis mentioned from ebay don't seem to be available any more, and I'm having a hard time finding any that appear to be suitable size. There are some I almost pulled the trigger on that were 50mm x 25mm, but the 25mm would leave the end transistors half covered. I could get the Fischer SK81/37.5/SA from TME and cut them in half, but I'm trying to avoid that if possible. I'd need enough for 3 amps. EDIT: Found these, 45 x 35 x 18mm on ebay https://www.ebay.com/itm/263051780518?var=562054192200

    don't worry, it's nothing compared to the electricity that bit coin miners are wasting

    I've been putting in a lot of hours with the Focal Clear on my L2 -- reasonably good match on low output impedance, very poor match on high impedance. I can't remember hearing another headphone so sensitive to high output impedance before, but it screws the bass all up. Understanding now why you make a DSHA-3F version, Doug.

    so the options for the new woo amp 1) plate resistors, they already said its not this 2) inductors, they already said its not this 3) center tapped inductor, you get about 6db of gain with this. 3a) push pull output transformer. all sorts of issues with gain and power with this 4) solid state current source maximum voltage gain of 6sn7 is about 20, maximum voltage gain of 300b is less than 4 somewhere there are likely to be input/interstage transformers and then you are still going to have trouble getting to a voltage gain of 500 or more if you want some feedback to reduce the distortion. the viva evidently is also low on gain, and uses and output transformer. why people produce shit like this I do not know

    Altered Carbon by Richard Morgan (for really obvious reasons)... I've been meaning to read it for years.

    Thanks all. Did get my first skate in since the crash today, felt ok. All slides worked out as expected. Had a couple of good meals, which each were the size of a couple good meals, with a couple of good friends.

    @ Pars: I suspect the ones I got are poorly made copies of the ones you got from THL which is actually located in Taiwan. I guess the trick is which vendors can one trust to get the quality ones. @ Jose: I like Neutrik product very well and use them when I can. I this case it's just much less work to drill one hole per connector than 3.

    You're the only one in that club with more than one amp.
