  1. Focal Utopia headphones...with Beryllium driver

    SRM-212 with lead acid battery has been done
  2. What are you listening to Part the Third

    French Kiwi Juice
  3. RIP some fuck or another

    RIP Matt Lauer
  4. The Headcase Stax thread

    Sinusoidal waves tautologically don't have harmonics. I have tried the same test a long time ago (not with a Carbon) and you will hear something, in the form of flapping noises.
  5. Is this a good deal?

    You need to follow this thread and have it send email notifications so you can check on your new phone! I clicked the link not long after Brent posted it and it was still in stock.
  6. The ultimate DIY? A Stax SRM-T2!

    You just have to make sure everything can handle 1.5A. The regulators I am using can only do 1A each so I have to use two.
  7. Is this a good deal?

    I meant you as in a collective generalized you. But your implication based in saying that 8gb and 16gb are effectively the same, etc, isn't correct because software uses hardware as a crutch. That's why no one complains when your browser leaks processing power and memory like mad, because the hardware can still handle it (at least for now). I guarantee that sometime in the near future 8gb won't be enough.
  8. Is this a good deal?

    Hardware outpaces software but not in the way you think. Optimization of memory hierarchy and computational parallelism are still very raw, and then there's the whole word lengths thing. Light based computers should be interesting.
  9. The Multi Amp aka Dynalo Mk2

    高鐵 isn't so bad I will be there Dec 5 - 15 but don't know when I will be available. I'll PM you soon.
  10. The Multi Amp aka Dynalo Mk2

    I'm Taiwanese American, my parents are Taiwanese. Anyone interested in a meetup? I'll be there very soon.
  11. Is this a good deal?

    I bought a refurb lenovo think pad for dirt cheap and put in a 500gb ssd probably close to 3 years ago, it still works fine and was already way cheaper than 700 all in. Every Dell I have ever bought or used has been garbage but the last time was like 5 years ago. Ymmv

  13. Technical Assistance/Advice Thread

    The best way is to use solder paste and a hot air gun. Not sure how well it would work with a normal iron and solder but definitely don't flood the pad before putting on the transistor.
  14. KGSSHV Carbon Build Thread

    No real reason to decrease it, I think most people are running their Carbons at 450V anyway and you have a lot of extra input voltage with a 350VAC transformer.
  15. and now for something completely different part 3

    Weird that I looked and found one in mine. the front panel is thick enough that you can potentially blind drill and tap. Pm me if you still want this done in January, I'll be out of town most of December.
