Re: Guitar pedal power supply and polarity

Exactly. However the wikipedia wording is vary bad and suggests the orientation is significant - it isn't. The only thing that matters is which symbol goes to the centre dot.

Re: Guitar pedal power supply and polarity

Nope. It's exactly correct. Centre negative (as usual).

Re: Headphone switcher?

It should also be a three pole switch.
It's tempting to use something like a standard 2 pole toggle switch for just L and R, and leave the grounds common, but that risks a ground loop (at the least).

Re: Dynatron Specialist 1200 open reel tape machine

Yes it was in the 60s - cost an arm, leg and firstborn, if I remember right. I applied to join Dynatron but that got knocked on the head with a hostile buyout. Instead I worked for Hacker Radio a few years later. They had all the design crew from Dynatron :lol: It was a good company, but us trainees...

On the bright side...
It's nice to see some sleepers surface, even if they immediately go back to sleep again :D

Re: Yoshimi 2.1.2

Ho Hum...
That's now V2.1.2.1 thanks to cmake (the build environment), recent versions of which now require an extra instruction :protest:

Progress, they tell me :roll:

Well, if any come my way I'll try them, and if satisfied I'll say so.

Re: Long cable run for speakers

Much more reliable than a screw based terminal, maintenance-free, and widely used across the world. It's normally just the US electricians who won't trust the repeatable and well supported Wagos, instead bizarrely preferring the horror that is wire nuts . Well, that link confirms I don't want them ...

Re: Long cable run for speakers

Some 6 or 10 amp 'choc-bloc' will serve for connection. But not very well. Really, these days, spend a few pennies more and use Wago connectors - quick and easy to terminate, much more reliable, and easily re-usable. https://cpc.farnell.com/wago/221-412/compact-lever-connector-2-way/dp/CN20135?st=w...
