    Eye Opener

    I've worked for pretty much non-profits, i.e., low pay for most of my life. Have almost zero retirement. Still working and putting away what we can but a little of not much is just that, a little. House and cars have been paid for, but I'm paying older son's student loan as late wife put it in my name. He has made the payments but for the past year hasn't been able to. It's $200 a month which could help us get other debt taken care of or put away. This is also why most of my audio purchases are fairly low cost/used... and don't come along very often. I'm wiser now, but time is not on my side. Seriously, it is one of the reasons we will retire to the Philippines. U.S. dollars go a long way... plus, I really like it there.

    What I Got Today!

    Thanks to @DizRotus Neil, I now have an h/ 730 in my living room, powering my jbl 4311s. Since you were talking about west coast low end rumble. These aren't meant to be on the floor, espe ially since I have them inverted to get the tweeters on top. Sounds great and I can now get my 630 serviced. Thanks Neil!

    It's been raining nonstop here in nprth Georgia today and is in the mid 50s. Still recovering from the flights home, staying in and resting. Bruce
  4. That may be well and good, but we are discussing audio interconnects are we not? To me, the larger issue is capacitance, which can cause high freq. rolloff over longer cables.
  5. It depends on the design on the board. I have worked with boards from a couple hundred dollars up to the multiple thousans of dollars. The specs may show them to be close to one another, but they certainly don't sound the same. Yes, the larger ones have more functionality, i.e., routing, input/output busses, phase/polarity control, eq, etc. but the actual design of the audio circuit will have you wanting to use the more expensive one. BTW, using eq doesn't cause signal breaks but can totally mess up the phase of a single instrument. As ChrisA has shown in his de-mastering thread, the excessive eq and compression of a final mix can totally screw up a stereo/multi channel mix. Bruce
  6. Hmmm, I find a FULL wavelength of 20khz is only .17 inches. What am I missing here? Bruce

    Nolo Contrdre...

    Thee are a number of composers who see different colors with different sound. The term is called synesthesia. Sibelius, Korsakov and many other... Richard Feynman saw equations in colors. Bruce

    Show us your great photography thread!

    I fully agree. After my wife got here to the States, I showed her a bunch of construction and she was amazed at how clean and tidy the brickwork was finished.

    Parents don't seem too concerned about where the kids play... These kids are out on the end of this dock by themselves.
  10. I'm still using the cheap cables that came with gear I bought in the early '70s. I've bought newer ones when I needed them but never anything exotic.

    If it was for an original Heresy (what you called a Heresy I), folks weren't doing too much with those crossovers. The most common was (IIRC) a single resistor across a couple taps on the autoformer. It smoothed out the midrange.. @Deang Bruce

    Jeff... not yet. We have about three more years here. Still have lots of decisions and preparations to make. Downsizing a LOT... Bruce
