My KGSS has polished aluminum on the front panels and they are just as shiny as when I assembled it 2+ years ago.  No polishing at all for all that time.

Hello Beefy

 

I'm afraid I don't understand your answer, and it's freaking me out!

 

I'm not kidding at all, just wondering if the power supply enclosure introduced by Justin will be the standard for the BHSEs to come. Do you mean that this introduction is a hoax, and that the new box is a phony one? Or does the expression "freaking box" have a special meaning -e.g, a screen on which freaking things show? I hope it has no sexual connection...

 

As you probably noticed, I'm not American, not even English, just French.

 

Best regards.

 

Philippe Simon.

While the front panels stay shiny I've found that the knob can stain over time from oils on the fingers.  Are you saying that in the past 2 years you haven't needed to polish your knob?

Not sure if I'm tired or you're very funny, maybe both ;).

I am also not a native English speaker.
 
What I think he wanted to tell you is that vibrations at the power supply have negligible effects in sound quality.
 
As I see it, he did not want to tell you that:
 
i) Vibrations at other pieces of hardware do not have perceivable effects in sound quality (e.g. acoustical feedback at cartridges or tubes);
ii) Case integrity does not have perceivable effects when you need, for instance, a shield for EMI or resilience to fracture.
 
To sum up, I think he wanted to say that in the BHSE power supply case you are not looking for 100% EMI shielding or resilience to fracture.
 
In other words, such box has only an aesthetic purpose, which is not a bad thing, since Justin said it cost the same raise in price from the original supplier (not machined).

That was powder coated and then polished... wink_face.gif  The pure titanium knob on the T2 is still nice and shiny with no coatings.

I'm sorry, it is clear that I don't speak your native language either. And by that, I don't mean that I don't speak French.

Thank you jgazal! Your interpretation is consistent.

 

But I suspect an underlaying joke or pun -see paulchiu's quote: "Classic!  Too Funny"

In this respect, being hewn out of a solid billet of iridium would be far better! (densities: aluminium 2.7, iridium 22.6) Could Justin do this?

I would vote for a case of pure stupidium. The density is off the chart!

Unobtanium is the rarest metal on earth.

Unonoctium has the highest position in the periodic table.

 

It has been gazumped by:-

 

The CSIRO has discovered the heaviest element yet known to science.

The new element is Governmentium (Gv). It has one neutron, 25 assistant neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons and 198 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312.

These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lefton-like particles called peons.

Since Governmentium has no electrons or protons, it is inert. However, it can be detected, because it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact.

A tiny amount of Governmentium can cause a reaction normally taking less than a second to take from four days to four years to complete.

Governmentium has a normal half-life of 2- 6 years. It does not decay but instead undergoes a reorganisation in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places.

In fact, Governmentium's mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganisation will cause more morons to become neutrons, forming isodopes.


This characteristic of moron promotion leads some scientists to believe that Governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a critical concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as critical morass.

When catalysed with money, Governmentium becomes Administratium, an element that radiates just as much energy as Governmentium since it has half as many peons but twice as many morons.  

All of the money is consumed in the exchange, and no other byproducts are produced.

^^^ Priceless....and would be totally funny except that it is mostly true...
