    No longer in a constant state of flux. Music is enjoyed using a Texas Instruments TPA3255EVM Class-D chip amp in a case with a Mean Well power supply. Several Pono players serve as DAP, DAC, & preamp delivering balanced output to Superized HIPs with Crites 120 tweeters. The balanced signal also feeds a pair of Behringer iNuke 1000dsp amps, each powering a pair of DIY Exodus Anarchy tapped horn subs. A technics TT with Denon MC cartridge is used only to rip vinyl to FLAC files. A Dual 1229 is used for 78s.

    The beaver video prompted me to look for a cartoon that appeared in The Detroit Free Press many years ago. Cartoonist Richard Guindon was an area delight for many years. There is a road in southeast Michigan that traverses several of the northern suburbs of Detroit. It is called Sixteen Mile Road, but in Macomb County it’s known as Metropolitan Parkway, in Troy It’s Big Beaver, in Bloomfield Hills it’s Quarton Rd. The Guindon cartoon showed a couple in a car asking directions from a giant flat tailed beaver with a quizzical look on it’s face. The caption read, “Quarton, Quarton, Quarton?” A search of the Internet for the actual cartoon came up empty. Instead, I’ve attached a different Guindon cartoon to provide a sense of his drawing style and his humor. Also attached is a cartoon not by Guindon, but which seemed appropriate. FYI: Big Beaver is at exit 69 of I-75.
  2. Not to be pendantic, but “top to bottom” where? Starting with the four lines at the lower left, each of the blue lines crosses over another line or lines. Which is represented by the far left blue line, the second and third blue lines, and the red line?
  3. I’m curious. Is this modification compatible with running the amp in balanced mode?
  4. I believe B&K Enterprises and B&K Sound are part of Crites Speakers. I believe Bob Crites has speakers made for B&K. I don’t believe Crites manufactures speakers. I welcome correction from Bob @BEC. It would surprise me if Eminence does not manufacture to Bob’s specifications the woofers sold by Bob. Irrespective of the source of the various Crites offerings, it is my belief that each represents excellent value, given Bob’s expertise, integrity, and excellent customer service.
  5. A gentle spelling correction would have been to spell bass correctly several times in your reply. There was nothing wrong with his grammar, possibly his mother’s mother, but not his grammar.
  6. I believe the fur could be easily removed. They seem to be a bargain at that price.
  7. Thanks for the update. Best wishes to her regarding her college experience, especially during these bizarre times.
  8. As the OP, it was my desire to alert the forum to the passing of an entertainment legend, irrespective of what his politics might have been. Were Clint Eastwood or Alan Alda to pass, I would do the same, despite the fact that they represent polar extremes of the political spectrum. It is not necessary to agree with someone’s politics to respect his/her talent.
  9. I think the child is probably playing professionally by now.
  10. A long and funny life has ended after 98 years.
  11. Now that they’re working, they’re behind the TV firing up. I’ve ordered stuff needed to hide the wires behind the TV. My wife doesn’t want to see the speakers or any evidence of the speakers.
  12. These are marketed on Amazon as a project suitable for young novice hobbyists. IMO, this is NOT suitable for beginners. I purchased these to provide better sound from the small TV in our kitchen. The TV’s small single speaker recently developed an annoying buzz. The completed acrylic speakers sound better than the original speaker ever did. I have assembled two Heathkit color TVs, numerous Dynaco kit amps, and many DIY amps. The instructions provided were inadequate. After searching Google for instructions, the instruction deficiency was mitigated. In addition to the lame instructions, it is necessary to surface mount a tiny IC chip amp to the PCB in each speaker. Eight tiny attachment points need to be soldered for each IC. Some parts we’re not labeled. Without any explanation, extra resistors were supplied. If having parts left over makes you uncomfortable, avoid this kit. Gikfun supplied instructions.pdf
