    What are you listening to Part the Third

    Napalm Death "Utopia Banished" I usually listen only when I´m training. I recognize that they are not my type.

    Tubeless on the road bike are not a good option yet.

    Some "Wasps" 😉 accompanying members of a club from the La Gomera island. In the first photo we are singing "Sexual Healing" while climbing a 13% ramp in the middle of a 1st mountain pass

    "Surfing with the Alien" is a nice album but I prefer "The Extremist"

    What are you listening to Part the Third

    Yes, I spoke in general terms. I didn´t mean that they were not able to compose good songs but IMO they have focused so much on technique, skills and speed that in the end they have forgotten the essence of music that is nothing more than transmitting emotions... Do not pay much attention to me guys: It's late, I'm tired and I start rambling 🙂

    Well, Dream Theater seems to me more focused on their instrumental skills than on the music itself. I feel the same when I listen to Steve Vai, Joe Satriani... I hope no one takes this badly but IMO they are great "instrumentalists" (I'm not sure if this word exists in English) but they seem very "poor" musicians.

    KGSSHV Carbon Build Thread

    I use an arduino controlling an SS relay on the primary of HV transformer. You can also use a circuit similar to T2 (with a LM555). It's very easy to do.

    KGSSHV Carbon Build Thread

    I also used a GRHV "standard" without delay and AC for the heating filaments. I decided to use 450Vdc for all since at the time Kevin commented that the high voltage was better for the BH / GG. You can replace the part of the LM7X15 with a GRLV but I do not know to what extent you will notice differences. IMO, the most important you have to keep in mind is the voltage with which you want to feed those amplifiers 400 or 450Vdc and the consumption to modify the value of the resistance of 5.1R That always happens to me.

    transconductance amp

    I forget to hang some photos of this amplifier. Sorry, I did not have any GRLV at that time ready.

    What are you listening to Part the Third

    A fellow of my cycling team lent me a couple of CDs of Katatonia and similar groups. He usually listens to them while he trains at home. I still have to listen to them but this weekend I'll be up to date.
