Re: Does anyone make rack tuners anymore?

I prolly shouldn't say this (but it is the silly season).
I didn't know you could tune racks. What's the best key for them?

Re: Monitor speakers and subwoofer... powering them on/off?

As a point of interest you should not use the wall switch to cut power, but only to isolate already switched off equipment. The wall switch has no proper fast disconnect toggle action so you risk arcing at both make and break. The same is true of power strips. Having said that, almost everyone does ...

Re: Hopefully, this is better than previous mixes I've posted...

Well, I don't really know what's right and wrong where arranging/mixing etc. is concerned, so my comments are just from the point of view of an 'informed' listener. The first thing I noticed was visual. The soundcloud file shows a consistent level close to maximum but with plenty of dynamics. Listen...

Re: Unpaid Invoices

Folderol, does your company take such heavy-handed action against smaller companies who can't afford the cash-flow issues? Of course, it's the supplier's fault for not making it clear to the accounts team that they were changing their strategy and making arrangements for it, but it seems like your ...

Re: Unpaid Invoices

Sometimes the boot is on the other foot. The people I work for do their accounting at the end of each month, with payments going out at the beginning of the following month. They've been doing this with all suppliers for very many years. A few months ago one of our three main component suppliers fai...

I guess that means you'll have to spend the next week or so eating and drinking to take you mind of things :D

Re: Studio Gear Optimum Room Temperature

Dave - I took the question to be about storage temperatures rather than operating temperatures. In our oceanographic equipment we've occasionally used crystals in tiny ovens but that's more about frequency stability rather than low temperature protection. James. Fair enough James. Yes, crystals in ...

Re: unintended saturation??

You must remember that 75% of this stuff was tracked at 10grams with a "stiff" ceramic cartridge capable of about ONE VOLT per cm/sec and directly drove a UL84 into a TV grade 4x3 elliptical speaker in a 1/4inch ply box. 20%THD if you were lucky! A stepup would have been a Blue Spot radio...

Re: Headphone impedences

I smell an elephantine odoriferous rodent! Now why do you suppose they chose a series resistance equal to the phones impedance? You don't suppose it could have anything to do with the fact that matched impedance gives maximum energy transfer do you? So now they make sure that any electro-mechanical ...
