  1. Happy birthday Stretch!

    Happy Birthday!
  2. The Headcase Stax thread

    Those leads look awfully close to shorting.
  3. The analog thread.

    Looks cool. But I've never understood why the solid state world threw out the inductor baby with the tube bathwater. Adding even a small choke to your filter will pay huge dividends on high frequency harshness that the bridges add, that the R-cores pass, and that those big caps do a poor job filtering out.
  4. And now what did you do TODAY?

    I think you'll be disappointing with them. Try the AlNiCo's instead - they feel more natural.
  5. Wood Speaker Stands?

    I wouldn't charge a penny over $3850
  6. Wood Speaker Stands?

    I don't know. I like Greene & Greene as much as the next guy*, but those seem a bit overworked. And they would not match many speakers in terms of design. * not really, actually

  8. Hiss is not due to an impedance mismatch per se. It is caused by current moving through electronic parts, and it can be exacerbated by having too much gain which amplifies it. The reason one might see it more with low impedance headphones is that they are often louder for a given voltage. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnson–Nyquist_noise https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shot_noise

    Sorry for your loss, Kerry.

    I don't like the feel of foam at all, but I especially don't like how it holds heat. And I find the smell from foam or latex unpleasant. Barring finding something novel, I think we'll likely end up with a run of the mill mattress with a foam free topper for now. Then perhaps get the fancy mattress at some later date.

    Rubber is on the not-wanted list. I am not sure that what I want actually exists in an affordable state, but that's nothing new.

    Yes to springs, but nearly all of them have layers of foam, too. We're looking for something made with cotton, wool, etc. I can only find one, and I can't afford it. I'm wondering if there is anything else out there.

    Is anyone aware of any reasonable mattresses made without foam - latex, petroleum, soy, or otherwise?
