    we actually got a longer run than most. It was pretty cool. And I really dig the ARM system. They're doing cool shit.

    The Cherry is lighter than the speakers, but will darken quickly next to the window. I have a vented front plate coming for the top space. The cooling fan sits in that space, and is really quiet.

    Apologies for the super-delayed response! Personally, I'd be inclined to ignore MOTU these days. I know they used to be go-to option once upon a time, but there's a bit of a stench of decay around their driver support and maintenance these days- I think that function could be the responsibility of an unhappy skeleton crew. They seem to take a lot time to track OS changes and bugfixes can be painfully slow. I don't use a lot of MIDI personally, I have MIDI I/O on my FH-2, my soundcard and on the main Euro sequencer if I need it. I think if I was after a lot of ports I'd probably be looking at this: https://www.iconnectivity.com/mioxl Lots of people seem to be happy with how solid they are- they seem to be sufficiently boring, which is what you want in such a device 😎 Oh, while we're at it, treated myself to a new non-budget soundcard, it has been years since I had anything decent quality at home. Suddenly, recordings aren't muddy any more, even when internally mixed on the modular and output via the little output module- clearly the bottleneck was the cheap soundcard. Behold a quick test recording: It sounds clean and clear without being harsh, praise be! Straight out of the modular, no post-processing. I am a happy bunny.

    Happy belated Birthday! Work had me offline for most of the last 2 days so blame the government, we probably deserve it.

    Hey,.. It's not like Summit has slipped to the bottom of the charts! You're still working on the peak of the Mt. Geekdom as far as I'm concerned. All hail Grawk!

    Had a arborist come out to quote on trimming some of our trees. I think this may get expensive.

    Very nice Steve. You should definitely send pictures of the finished unit to Parasound.

    OK - I sprung for a Chinese one from an eBay seller for sixty quid and free shipping. We'll see. It'll take a couple of weeks to get here. Chinese can often be quite good with what they say it is worth on the customs form, so it sneaks past customs.

    The Entech meter has of course been improved upon by the Chinese https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07NY21XG2?pf_rd_r=1BCER1ZTYCX3V67DZW7G&pf_rd_p=e632fea2-678f-4848-9a97-bcecda59cb4e . There is an image of the circuit board; trivial it is not. At least the Chinese one shows a value in millivolts of noise, and does not have a random knob. So there is at least a pretense of it being an objective measurement rather than Entech's random number. Looking further it covers 10kHz to 10MHz, much wider than Entech's, and is multi-standard - so you can plug it into both 120V 60Hz and 240V 50Hz.

    Like many people here, I use the hospital grade cords... They work great.

    This. All of this. I used to build my own power cables too, but mostly just for fun and I don't think I ever spent more than $20 or $30 in parts which still felt silly.

    Buy audio components with competently designed power supplies. A $3 inductor does way more than any of these cables or conditioners.

    I used to make my own power cables also, but the reason had nothing to do with the sound. It was to have them exactly the length I needed. Now I have a whole box of different length power cords that does come in handy.

    Life can be difficult growing up with a "hipness" level far exceeding those around you! 🤪

    $135 for an IEC power cord is a lot of snake oil. I've built a few Bob Crump Asylum power cables, and honestly can't tell any difference between them and generic hd 14ga IEC cables. For a CD player, very little current so even 16ga would be just fine.

    Second coat of finish. I still have rack rails to install, to hold the gear. The holes are vents, which will get black mesh behind them.

    Yeah, I'd go for that as well, hell even the Massdrop ESP950 at 500$ is better than this shit. Also bonus bit, there were holes in one of the dust covers. Yeah...pure quality. I just quickly patched them up with some tape until I have time to replace it. Also there was a small port on the cable entry which I plugged. There are also holes next to the swivel axis so I plugged those too. A small improvement to the bass or it was due to the cable... not sure. Need to do more testing
