  1. Happy Birthday Jim!
  2. Yes, very sorry for your losses gents.
  3. This was only on the one which I repaired for tkam, but I couldn't really tell much difference between them. I think tkam liked the zf better.
  4. Happy Birthday tall one!
  5. With the '70s shag carpeting, an ashtray would not feel out of place...
  6. The two outside pins are an Enable pin and a Sense pin. Ignore and use the center 3. This epay listing has 5 pins and discusses these. Amb's don't use them. https://www.ebay.com/itm/253306361665?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-117182-37290-0&mkcid=2&itemid=253306361665&targetid=1263104806246&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=9021654&poi=&campaignid=10459841961&mkgroupid=123050526620&rlsatarget=pla-1263104806246&abcId=2146002&merchantid=6296724&gclid=CjwKCAjwp_GJBhBmEiwALWBQk5ELjVxC7yJqYc4yYFUNldtxaPJKo5meQI6te--2Bv8zild8S4IahBoCzIYQAvD_BwE
  7. And this from the folks that brought us RoHS...
  8. So... my Windoze machine (new in June) is screwing up on OneDrive stuff. IT wanted to give me a Macbook Pro instead. Since I've been a Mac user since the '80s, I was game, until I discovered that Macs don't deal with OLE embedded docs well. No go on embedded pdfs or ppt or anything other than Word or Excel. WTF? Disappointing, but since I really need that at work, so no go on the Mac. Shit. Is this MS or Adobe, or both on this?
  9. Been watching the series version of Hanna. With Miriele Enos and Joel Kinnaman from The Killing, etc. Pretty good so far. Kind of followed the movie somewhat the first 3 or 4 episodes some. I'm enjoying it, but I also liked the movie.
  10. So not a standard blinking on the Panny? We bought ours (42") from my brother, and within a years it conked out with 10 blinks. Looking it up, other than the surface mount soldering, it amount to replacing 2 ICs on daughter boards (8 pin) and removing a tiny ceramic cap on each and replacing with an electro. They even sold kits for this. Been working great ever since (5+ years), but with the amount my wife leaves it on, etc., only a matter of time.
  11. I guess no one mentioned it, but the MPSA42 is the same as the KSP42. Mouser has 14,000 in stock (Central Semi).
  12. ^ Holy shit! RIP Charlie...
  13. The caps are probably 160V. I've used 1/4W resistors as well. I wouldn't think there would be any current going thru these, but haven't measured or calculated it.
  14. Those were a snubber based on a post in 2010? by John Swenson on diyaudio. There has since been much more work done on these. See this thread: https://www.diyaudio.com/forums/power-supplies/243100-simple-math-transformer-snubber-using-quasimodo-test-jig.html Sorry, it is long. For the combo recommended as a swag by Swenson, I had some MKP1837 22nf caps laying around, and just used crap Radioshack carbon 330R resistors.
  15. I'd agree, just from listening, and not the Stones. Led Zeppelin. Even though LZ 1 was one of the first records I bought, I didn't have any copies of any LZ, so decided to wade in. Looked at SH forum for some info, but the originals aren't bad (target discs), the mid 90's remasters suck, and the 2000's remasters are pretty good. Haven't decided whether I like the original or 2000s better yet.
  16. You need to get a more suitable solder iron, and I would invest in a solder sucker as well, such as an Edsyn Soldapullt or something like that. I'm not sure where you got your board from, but on any of the HC boards, I've never even come close to lifting a pad. Same with 1oz boards from seeedstudio, etc. Also, if you are using lead-free solder, one word: DON'T
  17. Thanks for that Ric! I hadn't seen that video before, and agree with what is said in it. Mahler has always been one of my favorites, particularly the 2nd, 3rd and 8th. My favorite 8th recording is the 1971 Solti/CSO recording, but I haven't listened to some of the more recent ones. I will say I have not been a fan in particular of MTT/SFO Mahler works as I find some of his tempi off-putting. I saw MTT conduct the 2nd in Chicago with the CSO, and found portions of it ghastly, though the mezzo-soprano Lorraine Hunt Lieberson (RIP) performed the best 4th movement (Urlicht) I've ever heard. I bought the SFO recording solely because she sang on it.
  18. Regarding the MJW21194/21193s: I believe some people use 2SC5200/2SA1943 instead of these. A bit lower power, but would be fine for a Dynalo. I think the pinout is the same, but I would check it first.
  19. I've been watching !00 Foot Wave, a mini-series documentary about surfer Garrett McNamara on HBO. Pretty good and engaging. https://www.hbo.com/100-foot-wave
  20. Happy Birthday Todd!
