  1. Happy birthday, Steve (swt61)!!!

    Happy Birthday Steve!

  3. The analog thread.

    OK boys steady yourselves.... Oh Yeah! It’s my new toy, I haven't got my grubby hands on it yet, it’s making it’s way from Portugal.
  4. What Are You Building Today

    Very nice work bjarnetv. Just to add on to what Craig has correctly pointed out in regards to pin 1, and your query if it’s something that may be audible. In my opinion a correctly implemented (as per rane notes) balanced line is all about “potential”, in other words one scenario may differ greatly from another, influencing environmental factors are all very different. The only way to test whether a certain environment has audible RFI, would be to dissconect pin 1 from the chassis and listen for hum, in a quiet rural country area you may not hear any as opposed to a city area where RFI is obviously greater. And then there’s house hold wiring, appliances and fluorescent lights that all add to that “potential”.
  5. What are you listening to Part the Third

    Nils Frahm - All Melody
  6. The analog thread.

    No I backed down... I have a DIY phono stage in the works though, I have one crate of vinyl so I’m not going in with all guns blazing, I’m trying to keep it within a reasonable budget. MM or MC for a poor mans rig? That is the question I’ve been pondering.

  10. The analog thread.

    Does anybody have thoughts on Denon tables? I have a bid on a excellent condition circa 1984, DP59M.
  11. i'm on a roll... the kgsshv

    ... yeah with an ambient temp of -10 . Really nice details and loving the miniature size.
  12. The Headcase Stax thread

    I’m somewhat disappointed in my stamina, I made it to 3.52 and threw in the towel.
  13. Mr Speakers Electrostatic Ether E

    Stats aside I think Mr Speakers plannar line-up is competitive and competent with current offerings.

    I think Bigir just gave it the nod of approval that it won’t damage phones. You should at some stage correct the values of the said resistors to bring up to proper spec, but I wouldn’t sell the amp based on ~$1.00 worth of parts and very simple fix.
