Re: iCloud..... what a bloody stupid idea

I have an "@mac.com" address. If I don't go to icloud, will it still work? I can't see any immediate reason why not. But you'd be well advised to buy yourself a straightforward "kwackman.co.uk" (or similar) address and start publicising it among your contacts. Set it to forward ...

Re: Potential project, up for discussion

Can't help you with your specific questions, but something you should consider with encoders is that there are basically two types - absolute and incremental. Absolute are mostly used when you need to know the exact position from the moment of switch-on, incremental are mostly used when you are more...

Re: Changing tubes on a single ended amp

I think Will that is a NTC surge limiter in the neutral mains input. :blush: I serviced a lot of radios yonks ago with the "Red E" series valves in them. Hmmm {cogitate} {cogitate} {cogitate} {ping!} ECH35, EF39, EBC33, 6V6GT Yay! :bouncy: Cossor Radio - had a small heater transformer but...

Re: USB hub question

I'd be disinclined to push audio through a hub. USB has a finite bandwidth per socket, stick a hub on it and that bandwidth is shared between whatever devices are plugged into the hub. Not a problem for mice and keyboards of course. MIDI seems OK too.

Re: Changing tubes on a single ended amp

Yes, quite a nice simple circuit - like the triode/standby option. Fusing is rather strange, but then there is a normal fuse and a thermal trip in the supply. Hmm, I wonder if the thermal one sits on the mains Tx. I was more thinking along the lines of swapping in a 6L6 or KT66. If I've got it right...

Re: Changing tubes on a single ended amp

Evnin' All :) Just like to add my 2d. Being single ended, your output valve will be almost certainly using what's known as automatic bias, consisting of a fixed resistor and capacitor. Changing this wouldn't be a realistic option anyway. This bias method has the happy feature of making it very toler...

Re: Project Ukulele

Nice work. In my (limited) experience the most 'difficult' woods usually give the best final results.

Re: PC refuses to restart after installing Komplete Audio 6 Interface - Help urgently required!

This is a long shot... Do you have a spare PSU at all - I know Dell kit can be non-standard in many respects but hopefully the MB connectors are sane. Failing that, do you have a test meter and can you check the +5V line? (red to black). The USB power feed is supposed to be protected but it's just p...
