  2. finished today my cfa2, was a trouble free build beside that i like small case (think is a tetris disorder i caught in my teenage years ;-). once again, these trafo covers look nice but the shielding effect is near zero, to get ride of a small hum i needed to add some grain oriented bands. heatsinkt of the case seems a bit overdesingned, gets only a bit warm. offset without servos was surprising low at around 10-15mv, could use nice matched mje15030/15031 from my previous dynahi project. the amps sounds very nice, one of the few amps that are neural and speedy that i like, really a "

  4. Covid style lunch at the Marshall Store. Brought our own camp chairs and table. Fish and chorizo stew, Kilpatrick and Rockefeller oysters, and byo-beer. Delicious, breezy, and beautiful. I'm certainly thankful.

  6. Well, our covid Thanksgiving day is limited to me, Claire, Alden and Steve. The meal we thought was going to be more streamlined has taken two days of cooking and baking, and we're not done yet. Here's the allegedly shorter menu: Orange-ginger cranberry sauce Meeso-Horny, I mean Miso-honey roasted Brussel sprouts Sausage-fennel stuffing Sweet potatoes TBD by The TICE Brined roast turkey Giblet gravy Turkey-bacon-swiss burgers for Alden who doesn't like any of the Thanksgiving menu except dessert Pecan pie Apple tarte tatin (inclufed because Alden

  7. So I shifted the Teac into the main headphone system in place of the NAD M51: So now I can use my Two Little Bears (Passive XLR switchers) to shift between the Mytek or Teac as input and the GS-X, DHSA or BHse as output:

  20. I've seen more [virtual] concerts during the pandemic than the last five years combined and the best by far was Idiot Prayer - Nick Cave Alone at Alexandra Palace (said by a non-Cave fan). Streaming now with vinyl coming in a couple days.

  23. Did a bone-in turkey breast on the Traeger today because life required more turkey. I cooked it just a little long (was not at home when the temp probe fired) and it was still moist and juicy on the inside.

  29. Seeing as we cannot travel this year, it seemed right to use only local Bay Area booze and organic produce for Mattnog 2020. I also figured it couldn't hurt to use all the milk and cream and expand the recipe a bit (including another ⅓ cup of each booze and two more egg yolks, not pictured). We have a long quarantine winter to get through, after all! Before: After: You half-batchers are crazy. It lasts a long time and we're going to be stuck at home for the foreseeable! I ended up with a 1.25 batch so that socially distant gatherings can be warmed up...

  30. Here is an attempt to make a “smd raal uberamp driver”. I followed Kevin’s schematic. The big resistor is for feedback/gain, I guess 1.5 – 2 W is required and a few components on “solder” side. The real challenge will be the power sections. 3A x * +/-24V * 8 * balanced - might be a bit extreme for headphone amplifier…

  31. I've been getting my mid 80s \m/ on. W.A.S.P. - W.A.S.P. (1984) W.A.S.P. - The Last Command (1985) W.A.S.P. - Inside The Electric Circus (1986) The first two are absolute classics of the genre (LA glam metal with just a dash of shock rock from the first half of the 80s.) Blackie Lawless has always been a bit of a clown, but on the first two WASP albums he managed to avoid self parody and had some remarkably consistent songwriting. Chris Holmes and Randy Piper had some great riffs as well. Inside The Electric Circus is a much more un

  36. my batch is ready. i went Turkey 101 for the bulk of bourbon this time (last year was Old Grand Dad BIB) and also splashed in some Maker’s for a little balancing sweetness. this year’s initial taste was less boozy than last year. still has 3/4 cup rum, 3/4 cup brandy, 1.5 cups turkey, and unmeasured pour of makers. ...oh i also sampled last year’s, which is officially over 1 year old.

  38. I've got a black cat that came with the house. He came wandering up after we moved in. It took months to transition him to the indoors. He was king of the backyard, doing battle with anything that moved. He would kill it and drop it on the back patio. After three years, we don't let him out at all. We do let him out in the screen porch. He likes lap sitting, but quite often extends his claws when he's purring and getting a rub. so affectionate and blood letting go hand in hand around here.

  39. Lately the left channel humming has increased to become even more bloody annoying. But… today I cured it (pure luck - trial and error approach). I have two umbilicals between psu and amplifier. Both carrying 580V bias and then joining at the stax connector. So, I removed left 580V bias wire in amplifier and the hum disappeared. To my ears the amplifier is now dead silent.

  42. ^in my case i realized i hadn't touched the brandy or rum leftover from last year's batch. i need to make more of a dent. should really just do the 14-egg recipe exactly as Matt documented but it is an insane amount of NOG for two people.

  46. It's just a matter of time. I have no doubt that in a month or so, 80% of the apps that are currently non-compatible or in testing will be in the yes column. For the one's that don't, it's very bad press but it seems like very well established apps just don't seem to mind it.
