  1. HDTV Suggestions

    Plasma refresh rates really can't be compared to LCD refresh rates. The only reason plasmas say that 600 Hz BS is to compete with the LCDs that keep upping their advertised refresh rate. For plasmas it refers to the subfield drive, or really how fast each individual pixel is being excited which is a requirement of plasma technology due to rapid decay of light from each pixel. This post here explains things much better than I can: http://www.hdtvtalk.com/threads/15597-What-does-600Hz-Sub-Field-Drive-mean

    ST50 and GT50 are very similar. The GT50 adds some thx picture modes, one additional hdmi input, a faster processor for the smart tv crap, and a few other items. Details here: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1403635/official-panasonic-gt50-series-discussion-thread-no-street-price-talk#post_21865487 Bottom line you get essentially the same picture quality so unless you need one of the features the GT adds you might as well stick with the ST and save a few hundred bucks. Or get a bigger one with the savings

    The only ones I have come across are from TE connectivity: http://relays.te.com/kilovac/ I know digikey stocks some of them but they are extremely expensive - http://www.digikey.com/scripts/DkSearch/dksus.dll?k=kilovac&vendor=0&mnonly=0&newproducts=0&ptm=0&fid=0&quantity=0&PV1411=148&PV1411=150&PV1411=149&PV1411=103&PV1411=147&PV1411=142&PV1411=151

    How will the bass fit through such small holes?

    I think the point is that they are trying to force you to the cloud, whether you want to or not. If you want the same phone with a SD slot you just get the Optimus G, although you don't get the bleeding edge android any more.

    The N10 is very tempting, 1600p in that form factor is incredible. I'm sort of in the market for a new tablet/netbook type thing for casual web surfing, emailing, etc and the N10 definitely looks like it deserves serious consideration. I am finding some of the Win8 stuff pretty compelling as well though and I want to see what price point the ivy bridge based win8 stuff comes in at

    Never lost power here in Maryland near DC. NJ and NY area sure looks like they got pounded though. Good luck to everyone in the areas that got hit hard hopefully you get power back soon and the flooding goes down. Stay safe everyone!

    I'd take 50 2sa1486 It really sucks how so many of these transistors get discontinued. I just went in for 50 pairs of matched sk170/sj74 as well. Didn't realize they were getting so rare. Hopefully I can get some decently matched quads in there

    Or you could print out a copy and use a pen
  12. i'm on a roll... the kgsshv

    500VA is that right? Seems very high
  13. i'm on a roll... the kgsshv

    Fluke 113 is a quality meter. It should be able to measure these voltages with no problem
  14. i'm on a roll... the kgsshv

    I'm assuming you are measuring with respect to ground? For the output of the transformer you should measure across the winding, so the voltage across 1 and 2 and then 3 and 4.

    Mine was a little over 1500. Two box build with front panel express front and rear panels for both. Also I had a khozmo stepped attenuator and amb epsilon24 for power switching duties.
