  1. Finished getting the headphone system reorganized. Pretty sure I am not adding anything new for a while.

  4. Thank you very much everyone. Maybe I shouldn't have posted that here but frankly I'm very upset. This photo is from last year doing two laps around the island: it's how I want to remember him.

  6. Here is my T2 power supply, now with Pro Bias Maida regulator style. The small board with three blue filter capacitors is the 21st Century Maida Regulator by Tom Christiansen producing 580 volts after change of resistor. The Maida regulator replaces the 10m90s current source with Zener string and filters. I feed the regulator with unregulated 660 VDC. Only 5.1M resistor on psu board is used. Works great. P.S. still need some wire clean up… will probably never happen

  9. Went to a Halloween store with Esmé. They seem pretty optimistic this year is going to be like every other Halloween. Except the big costume for the ladies seems to be Sexy Black Death/Plague Doctor.

  12. BBQ ribs. I turned the burners down low and opened the lid on the grill for eight hours and got a free smoke treatment for the ribs. When life gives you brushfires time to smoke some meat.

  13. What didn't you like about BJs? Costco is easily my favorite store ever. I once bought some $0.19 batteries that leaked and destroyed a $2000 mic preamp. Costco had me send them pictures, then the device and they fedexed me a check to buy a new one.

  20. Another reverse seared Ribeye, this time with homemade creamed spinach. Pulled out the steak at 110 degrees and did a quick sear. Plus I feel like I'm at a steakhouse with the bucket of creamed spinach I made. Fantastic.

  23. When I was 16 or so, we visited my older brother who was going to grad school in Chicago. My brothers took me out one night and I used his 23 yo ID to get into a number of places, including seeing a local band called Survivor. The venue was a weird hall with hay bails along the walls for seating. It was pretty funny to see them rocket to star status a couple years later after Rocky 3 came out.

  25. More difficult than I imagined. Three very different acoustic amps, only one of which had a line out, so I ended up recording with my contraption mic around 8 feet back and one line out feed from the lead guitarist. All outside on the island, while major construction was taking place on a rock wall behind the beach. Vocals suck but I think the guitars are okay.

  27. Tested the 21st Century Maida Regulator as a Bias 580V regulator. Got 558 V with the components I had at hand. It takes about 15 seconds to reach desired voltage. To be continued (maybe).

  28. Draft of BIAS 580V regulator. Works in LTspice. After the voltage doubler is a Maida regulator. Q1 is a to247 mosfet, C1-3 are 27.5 mm film caps and rest of parts are surface mounted. For Maida regulator see: https://www.ti.com/lit/an/snoa648/snoa648.pdf?ts=1600430373786&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com%2F https://www.diyaudio.com/forums/vendor-s-bazaar/209067-21st-century-maida-regulator.html https://neurochrome.com/collections/power-supplies/products/21st-century-maida-http://www.pmillett.com/HV_reg.html

  31. I was sent this and it was posted on SBAF so one can expect the level of discourse over there: There is so much here that I don't even know where to start. First off, they claim this circuit is "unique"...well it isn't. Old as the hills this one, same as the old TubeCad stuff, the Rudistor amps, the prototype Schiit built, that Trilogy H1 piece of shit and I've been building similar amps for the last 15 years. Stax also released something similar in the 60's so no...not unique. The amp circuit is simple and works well enough for a cheap amp so nothing wrong with that. I

  36. Just catching up with this thread. About ten years ago we had a Renault something, and it had a quirk. If you half closed the door the central locking would fire. So in January I parked in a remote car park to go for a run in cross country shoes through the mud and slush snow. Got back to the car soaked in sweat, tossed the keys on the drivers seat and as I moved to the boot (truck) to put dry clothes on, the door half closed - clunk. Keys and phone inside. Me outside in freezing temperatures, soaking wet, and it is getting towards dark. Fortunately there was an elderly couple in thi

  38. Dan's questions are great. The bottom line depends a lot on the situation. Do the players "know" what they are looking for? In other words, do they have experience in a studio/recording environment. If so, like Sherwood said, you should listen to what they want. The classes I took on recording were great. We'd take a instrument like drums, and the teacher would show us a couple of well known mic set ups (and mic choices for each position) and talk about where each mic type might be placed. Then we would listen to what that sounds like, move each mic around, then swi
