Re: M-Audio Delta 1010 PSU Advice

You were lucky.

Quite often AC supplies are alternately half-wave rectified to provide + and - supplies. I've also seen them used to feed voltage multiplier cicuits to give very much higher voltages than the 9 - 12V from the transfomer.

A DC supply would not work at all in either of these instances.

Re: Undertones -can anyone tell me if they exist???

I wonder if anyone else is unable to listen to them without immediately thinking of John Peel. Sad loss.

Re: My Hum !

Been following this with interest (but little knowledge of your gear), when re-reading your initial comment a thought occurred to me. You said a WHINEY hum. Does that mean it's a fairly high pitch? Say around 5kHz? If so, then it's almost certainly the inverter in the UPS that's the culprit. If not,...

Sheesh! Some people get up early in the morning :ooo: Well I wasn't being ironic, but now I realise that (ironically) I've just made work for myself. This drawing was in a bunch rescued from the loft, that were all copied from Practical Wireless, Practical Electronics & Wireless World many moons...

Re: 1 power-strip with ON-OFF switch to turn on several devices....pracital, but bad for the equipment?

Place I used to work for used sequential delay socket strips. Don't know where they got them from but I'm sure they're still around. They used bi-metal switches and cost about 3-4 times that of an ordinary socket strips. They were euro sockets and I think there were 8 in a strip. Also I've heard you...

Re: DAT woes

Hi Guys.
I'm in North Kent, but freqently travel to Dorking, and occasionally to Farnborough, and even more occasionally to Thatcham.

P.S.
I'm also looking for another excuse to go up Milton Keynes way, where there just happen to be some old computers :)
