I know hey!
Just typing that made me realize how long it has been outta commision...
It had the b24 thread I really wanted to read too
post #1083 of 3166
I never did finish reading all the B22 threads there

Is he gonna bring the site back?

I still prefer this forum engine by a large margin, but there is a lot of good info over at headwize. I hope it comes back

Last I knew, yes, he was still planning to put the site back up but his last update was over a month ago now and was that he was moving and wouldn't be working on it for a while. If nothing else I hope he's able to restore a static version of the old site so that data could be mined from some of the really good threads that were there.

Yes, Chu is busy but headwize will come back eventually. He still has to add some anti-spam code to the forum software.

Good to know. Thanks guys

I read through his posts about the problems he was having, but it seemed like there were big gaps between them. I'm glad to hear he's just busy and Headwise will be back.

This is great news!
I miss the forum. But had it not been for the headwize forum downtimes we may never have got Head-Fi.

i heard the 3,000 post B22 thread there said people had B22s that blew up? randomly, how likely is this?

There is usually a reason things blow up, it doesn't just happen randomly. The B22 has no short protection and my guess is that this could have been a cause for some of the failures. TRS jacks can cause a momentary short when plugging/unplugging and this can lead to failed output devices that fail to a shorted condition.

is the neutrik multi jack, the one with balanced and a 1/4 in the middle one that would cause that issue?
post #1091 of 3166
DoYouRight, any TRS jack has that potential problem. It's the nature of its design -- when you insert or remove the plug, the different portions of the plug would cause undesirable short circuits in the jack. As long as you turn the volume down before plugging/unplugging, then there is no risk of damage.
post #1092 of 3166
ok, I always turn it down to min before unplugging so I should be fine
post #1093 of 3166
DoYouRight - that doesn't change anything - it simply shorts the input signal to ground. The TRS jack still shorts the right signal to ground and that is the danger. Leave it in that stage for too long (I don't remember the exact time though I remember reading the calculations somewhere before) and you will blow the output MOSFETs.

so what should I do to make this not happen. Unplug it unless Im running it? just tell me what to do to protect my baby! so much cash has gone into it already and im not half way done lol.
post #1095 of 3166
I would just turn it off to be extra safe. For the balanced outputs you can plug/unplug all day with no problem.
